Clarification: Lagoon on Steam does not provide MP keys anymore, meaning you can't register any such keys from regular to Steam. This is by design.

Is there any reason we can't get the feature to download solo replays in maniaplanet (like it was possible in Tmu) ? It would be very useful, since many replays aren't uploaded to maniaexchange.

Why? Sounds like a very bad design compared to how it used to be.

Debatable. This now means that Maniaplanet games finally work exactly the same as 95% of all other Steam games, where entering a key into the game is not necessary, nor will a key ever be shown to you, avoiding further confusion if the key does happen to automatically register on the game.

The only advantage to having a key is that you can register your game on both regular MP and Steam, and still have it use the same license. I'm not sure that advantage is a very interesting advantage to most users if you take into account that the Steam purchasing process is a lot easier now.

Well it's a huge bummer to me. I'd prefer to have all games I can on Steam even if I had them elsewhere as well, as a kind of backup. I kind of trust Steam a lot more than random smaller companies in longevity, or at least longer lasting access to "my stuff". In this case I just bought it from MP out of habit, and to support the developers (which now backfired...)

I don't think buying from Steam vs. buying from Nexway makes a difference here in supporting Nadeo, I'm going to assume Nexway also takes a 30% cut (not to mention Ubisoft probably ALSO takes a 30% cut).

What is the next game, SM Cryo? Or another TM Turbo for Shootmania? Maybe even Trackmania 3?
