Re: Some reflections about the solo mode

While I can understand Nadeo’s argument that a 5 minute wait between each official time run is to reduce server load I can’t help but feel that it would be a self-correcting problem. Consider the scenario where your replay is submitted whenever you set a new record (as long as you’ve beaten gold – j...

An alternative for point calculation

It's a well known fact that if you wish to get the most benefit from your solo ladder points then you should focus completely on the white (and maybe green) tracks. The easier tracks have the most official times and points are calculated based upon the number of people who are slower than you. Becau...

Re: Singleplayer mode question

Be aware that if you create a group so you can more easily race against your friends official times the 5 minute per official time will mean that the fastest driver is the one with the most free time. As far as I understand it, the whole "official time" thing is Nadeo's attempt to add a bit of an ad...

Re: [TM2] Crashes - STEAM version now hangs in off-line mode

Since STEAM just pulled down updates to both Canyon and Stadium I thought I'd retry STEAM in off-line mode to see if it was still broken.

And, after a long wait, it seems like the issue is finally resolved. Which is brilliant. I'll have to try it on the train again in a few days time.

Re: [TM2] Crashes - STEAM version now hangs in off-line mode

I wasn't aware there had been an update (since Nadeo aren't publishing change notes to the STEAM page). However, after verifying the integrity of the game cache, ensuring that the game runs OK when STEAM is in on-line mode I've just retested it. Place STEAM into off-line mode, start TM-Canyon (eithe...

[TM2] Crashes - STEAM version now hangs in off-line mode

After the last update I have discovered that when STEAM is placed into off-line mode TM-Canyon, or indeed the "Settings" program will not launch.

How to reproduce:
Place STEAM into off-line mode.

Re: [TM2-Canyon] No-one can join my non-dedicated server

I cleared out the "force server address" settings and re-booted my router (I was confident it wasn't a firewall issue) and it works now. Don't really understand why I had to re-boot the router as I don't normally.

Thanks for the useful link (saved for future reference) and the information.

[TM2] no-one can join my non-dedicated server[fixed]

Hi, I'm looking for a bit of help/assistance running a non-dedicated TM-Canyon server. I'm sat behind a firewall (happens to be configured for strict NAT) so I've configured the following: On the fire wall: Ports 2350 (the server port) and 3450 (the peer to peer port) are both configured to forward ...

Re: Not online

Even though you bought the game through STEAM, you will still need a mania planet account. STEAM simply installs the files, and allows you to launch the game with the STEAM overlay. I've yet to investigate whether STEAM integration goes as far as allowing you to follow friends into games or not. Tha...

Re: Blank grey cars in multiplayer?

It might also be worth checking that you've not disabled custom skin downloads as well. It is an option somewhere in a menu.
