    I've downloaded the game, installed fine. When I run it, the intro window loads, (where you can change the graphics settings etc) but when I click 'Play' the game flickers and vanishes :( Anybody have any idea how I can get it running? btw, if it's any help mentioning it, the PC is an Athlon 4000+ with a Radeon 3870 in it.

    Whoever said that lied. I downloaded and installed TM Nations a month ago, and it definitely had Starforce - I had to patch the bloody thing to get Nations to run.

    But still, glee! I can't wait to play. (curse you, classes and work...)

    i hate starforce. it destroys computers! I think there is a program you can get that disables starforce so it dont screw your computer up. but im not sure.

    anyways Trackmania is a fun game, teacher had it in school and its lots of fun.

    Ok, just downloaded this from steam and its working perfectly for me. :p They have changed the design of the menu's and I think its a fair bit better, although the server browser isn't the best. The coolest thing though, its supports 3D glassess!!! I can't find mine, has anyone played with 3D glassess yet??!!

    Unhealthily addicitve. The 'just-one-more-go' factor will keep you going until the crack of sparrow fart.

    This has to be the most frustratingly-addictive game ever concieved, and i take great pleasure in spreading the pain... er ... joy of playing to as many friends as possible.

    Its quite possibly the best example of marketing i've ever seen, to release a fully functional mini-game like this, I for one have handed over my hard-erned and welcome our new micro-machine-racer-esque overloards!

    anyway enough from me, i gotta get gold in this track before i kill the pad/tv/pc/random person in a fit of frustrated rage...

    ...just one more...
    ...this is the last...
    ...no really, that one was just to get a feel for the track...
    ...ok, last try...
    ...DAMNIT...
    ...****IT...
    *deep breath*
    ...new track...
    (repeat until you're dizzy)

    A couple of the D tracks are actually impossible, despite what people say.

    And if I'm going for gold, the delete key gets used a lot. Last I looked, I was something like 270th in England (woo! rofl)
