 ijonspeches, i think you should get this one and look
whether you can fix performance by setting everything to its
lowest. and also you can look into this. but this
is a hassle, so if it doesn't run a little bit without,
don't bother

right so, there is about 10 trackmania versions out and
they name the recent one "Trackmania" and sell it on
ubisoft´s homepage exlusively, so no one else finds it.
guess they´re good with word to mouth.

thx a bunch for the link :)
ill check the free version, as the game looks pretty fun,
maybe upgrade to a year servers.

lagoon and turbo look quite beautyful,
do the cars play the same as stadium or the other games?

no, the idea is that it's different cars. though i feel all
the TM2 cars are the same base, but tweaked very
differently. lagoon has a pretty ridiculous short radius
(which i think is cool, just possibly not very realistic).
in Turbo you have all the TM2 games, the four different
environments (canyon, valley, stadium and lagoon)

yeah it's kinda aggravating they named the last one
'trackmania'

with the name game the car feels most like TMNF/TMU, just
loads heavier

right, new one, for anyone interested, is free: the whole
campaign is free to play (and future campaigns). for the
other games you just get a few tracks for free. also
developer Nadeo is a small studio, just under the umbrella
of Ubisoft

yeah, the free version seems a lot of fun so far
just played the first 5 tracks until gold medal,
then competed against others. :)
most importantly:
the tracks are fun to play and it feels great after liftoff

guess its different when you´re surrounded with it

i still have 2 days to finish the campaign,
went gold on the next tracks, still 2 secs behind the tops

like in TMNF, there's also a fourth medal, the 'author
time'

and with open planet there's a champion's medal, which
emulates the 'super track masters' from Trackmania Turbo.
open planet means it's community made

getting gold is awesome, for sure

so you haven't played ice yet, in these first 10 maps, but
did have the new surface: plastic.

it will hit consoles (including PS5): link

don't know if it will be physical (i have no idea how
consoles work in this regard, these days)

probably, afaik, it won't be physical because it's now a
subscription model (though you still get to keep all the
maps from years you subscribe)

I did have smth like bobsledding, red sand, and hovered on
water. 💦 Not particularly looking forward to ice and snow
of the winter campaign 😂 but its gonna be fun.

I wasn’t being sarcastic. It’s coming out and there will
be physical copies. It looks good and it looks fun.

if you've never played, i gotta warn: it's equal parts fun
and frustration. (maybe if you don't set goals for yourself
it can be just fun, but where's the fun in that?)

Its a lot of try and error, but its kind if the charm and
the challenge. Can you make it to the goal of a 20 sec.
track? Did we mention loopings, corkscrews and 500m jumps?

biggest performance tip, btw, is making sure you're on full
screen. if you alt-tab away, for instance, you go in
windowed mode and that costs a lot of processor power
(apparently on most systems, processor is the limiting
factor, not gpu)

than the people surveilled should respect your playtime and
behave when you're playing. or is the surveillance a goal in
itself?

while i cannot run or even start modern games lots of games
from the 20´s i´ve never been worried about performance in
trackmania. its very low maintanance. and i dont believe
i´ve ever played a game in windowed mode as its not
immersive at all. thx for the tip anyway, it does make
sense, but may be overlooked!

like, they, this guy in particular, broke the track with the
reactor boost and all kinds of exploits of it, among which
driving backwards (apparently you get a bigger 'zoop' going
backwards)

this happened on other track as well in this campaign, like
7 of them

my favorite was probably this reddit comment:
"nadeo, you morons"

see, for regular people breaking maps (finding shortcuts and
exploits) is entertainment, but for people that want to get
the best records on them (hunt them), it can be tedious to
have to learn to drive like this

to me its gotta be fun and competetive.
the point is to stop, when the fun goes,
move on or wait til next season
i really like the seasonal idea,
gives yourself the chance to start fresh,
skip out and still come back etc..

with season track, you can get sick of them. then you should
stop, but pick it up again a bit later

i know what you mean though, for sure. dealing with getting
sick of them, is a big part of the challenge. mental game,
really
