Why don't you simply wait for the release and then decide to get it on uplay, or perhaps wait bit longer until it also comes to other seller sites?
I don't care much of the platform, if it is a game i want to have, i take it into account.
So what.
I had Uplay only since it was required for Turbo, but it is not in the autostart. Same for Origin for Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield (which I actually don't play anymore because of lack of time).
It's just additional apps in parallel of Steam.
EGS I didn't need so far, don't need to get all games, except Trackmania :lol:
:pil

Can't wait hopefully it has ultrawide support above 2560x1080 for 32:9

Actually a very good point. Perhaps Alinoa or anyone from the office could share more information about that. Having a 32:9 here too, and the existing titles just slowly start to stretch towards the edges.

Hi,
Currently (Alpha 7) there isn't a proper support for ultra wide display in the new Trackmania, but this is listed in the TODO.

Alright, thanks for the info.
Even though I've grown used to it being stretched out in the corners, I'm never against a bigger field of view. :mrgreen:

Hi, having seen some if many players hunting map in round like in time attack, I propose a new DEDIMANIA AVERAGE in round, then only the most conistant players would be honored, no more unfair hunt cheating.

Hope Nadeo will consider my proposition.
thx and bye ;)

As I have said other times, "timeAtack" and "rounds" are the same
many players in "round" mode turn off opponents with the "o" key so they don't bother them
Many go for time, it should not be like that in "rounds"
The only solution to differentiate "timeatack" with "rounds"
It would be that the cars could touch each other (between two cars), then the way of driving would change.
I'm not saying the word allow collisions ,, but the word touch ,,, there is a difference between the two words.
"rounds" with the danger of being able to touch (between two cars), would change the vision on the way of driving.
Greetings

Nadeo doesn't own Dedimania.

Has there been any announcements regarding VR implementation for the new game?

In Mania Planet 3 (MP3) we had the broken Oculus-Mode which never worked. However, there was also the side-by-side mode (stereoscopic) which was actually really cool! With an app like Virtual Desktop where you watch your (2D)computer display in VR you could instead show the game in 3D. You got the exact same driving view and game UI, but in 3D!

Most people think this game is unsuitable for VR, but the thing is that it's different with this implementation when you watch a big rectangular 3D-view of the game infront of you. You are not "inside the game" as is most common with VR-games and it's less nauseating! I could play for 2 hours straight without problem and friends who tried also said it was not as bad as they thought.

For some reason it was removed in MP4 and I haven't gotten any reply on the topic :?
