Post by BLaHiTiS » 03 Apr 2008 16:13

Hello to the community,

You've massively downloaded and installed Nadeo's new update for the TrackMania franchise on the first launchday. As you have explored the game by yourself, there's no doubt that you have discoverd a few obvious new updates already.

But to close off this first launchday, we would like to present a comprehensive changelog which illustrates nearly all TrackMania Nations / United Forever changes and updates so you can see for yourself what you can really expect from this latest installment and appreciate that - like Florent hinted in october 2007 - this update is about making this franchise the most complete and rich TrackMania experience to date.

004-New: we display champions of a zone for the skill points ladder.

In this case, the server can choose what it want to do with the faulty player: nothing, log, log/reset, log/reset/ban, with log = a message will be displayed in the chat, reset = player's score is removed.

[*]TIMNF users have only stadium as environment
TMNF (without I).
