You make it sound like you asked Nadeo ...

The fact is none of us know maybe? ... i left this the first time incase anyone else had any clues.

Try emailing the support email in your documentation for the game, they may of course know more :thumbsup:

If i get a heads up as to how long, i shall post back for ya ^^

well, i did buy the wii version, but since there's no way of letting the pc version know that, i'm still stuck with the commercial :p
as much as the trackmanias may rule, carmageddon 1 & 2 are still the best games ever :D

What does everyone mean by "extra click?" I don't know why there's all this venom about ads? The only ads I've seen are on the signage in-game, and I think they only add to the realism of TM. Is there something I'm not getting as an American player that you Europeans have to suffer through? :?

Uff, there are lots of people who get beefed by such things, i personally didnt mind, but then i have fast load times for tm when i load up the SSD version at home anyway ^^

I suppose some people may find adverts in a game they pay for a bit cheeky, allthough personally TM is a little different to me, as they need to support the servers, and it's not like they charge us a monthly fee for them eh? xD

Similar to this I remember when people made a big fuss during the Forever beta about the score screen appearing when a track was completed in an online race, meaning you had effectively had to click an extra button to respawn each time you completed a run on a track. People don't moan about it now because you simply just get used to it :D

It was disabled last Friday I think. And yeah, it was just one click during start-up of the game, no beef in that at all. Impatient kids today... :roll:
