Just for the moment:

Rename TrackmaniaServer.exe to TrackmaniaServer.old.exe

Download and place it in the dedi directory: http://www.tm-dsa.com/TrackmaniaServer.exe

I have changed the internal version from "2008-04-15" to "2008-04-15b"


DON'T FORGET TO UPDATE WHEN THE NEW VERSION IS OUT!!

Not really, it was compiled by the TMF testers, so all thanks goes to them.

Was he even allowed to post that thing? I dunno...

It's here!

basicly why i was hesitant to move it at first , you'll not believe it but the list ise like only 85% complete. There's other little things under the hood that wern't obvious at first glance and this topic needed a bit longer to "mature".

But it can do so right in the open as well :) but please make real contributions :)

Hi i'm having the same problem as a previous poster. When trying to install trackmania united forever it says "You can install TmUnitedForever 2.11.11 only if TmUnited 0.2.0.0 - 0.2.0.9". I did read all posts after this comment and something was mentioned about steam? I have no idea if the version of the game i purchased and downloaded online is steam or starforce. I did a search of my drives and there is no record of "steam" in there. So is there another way of telling if my game is steam or starforce? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help. I'm really jonesing to play this

By the looks of what you mentioned - you have a Steam version. The steam version update is also available - so go ahead and get that update and it will work fine :pil

Thank you for the prompt reply. I did google for it earlier and it all looked double dutch to me (not literally dutch). Would it be on the steam site or gamers hell or where? Sorry i have no idea where to even start to look for it

Look in the My Games tab in your Steam window. :P It might already say that TMU is updating. If it stays at 0 %, just pause and resume updating to get it going.

If you don't have Steam, you can't have the Steam version of TMU installed either, it would be some other edition.
Find the Nadeo.ini file in your TMU installation folder, change the version number (probably 0.2.1.0) into 0.2.0.9, and apply the standalone patch.
