Well you are sure to hear of the public beta closer to the day eh ...and nothing to aplogise for ... we are all as excited as eachother i would guess :thumbsup:

I will however guess that them specs will vastly limit what you will be able to do with TM2 ...I of course hope they will be friendly to lower specced machines (as has allways been with TM games) but i have also been pushing them for more scenery and tesselation features ...

the idea of TM2 will be to "jump forward" both with the look and feel and physics of the game ...and also unlocking purely unlimited potential within the editing features ...the last barrier to "creating what we want" (3d shapes) will be removed and this will make the whole thing very manic for sure..

so at default we can expect the game to be very friendly on specifications ....but there may be countless scenery blocks with all manner of polygons ... i can imagine this will impact on performance vastly even if the "vanilla" game is friendly.

So be prepared to upgrade ...i do hope it will be fine for you ...but i personally would be saving my pennies right now for better hardware if i was in your situe ;)

yeah, they can't launch TM2 until they completely kill TMNF (like they are trying to do now), otherwise nobody will buy TM2

TM2 will be in alpha/beta stages well and truly before Q4 2011, perhaps in Q1 or Q2. You just need to be patient. :)

And no, Nadeo are NOT killing off TMNF to launch TM2.

The joys of wikipedia. I suggest you stick to mania planet forums for correct information as Florent himself will post it. :thumbsup:

Notes (if the person wants a little more correct information in the article)
1) Game engine is wrong, should be Game Box not mania script. As it currently stands, Mania Script is just a scripting language created by Nadeo and is not the actual game engine.

2) The publisher is Ubisoft, not Nadeo.

At the moment, the news can start in March and the latest it can start is April. I am trying to make everybody ready for the new adventure of maniaplanet, and it takes a lot of time.

Maniastudio is waiting for new people and even desks to be installed in the new offices, opening end of Febuary. It was supposed to be ready for 1st of Febuary, but there is always delay coming from nowhere stacking up.

So, it should be a pretty calm situation in Febuary. Happily, it is the shortest month :mrgreen:
