Platform pack - level geometry STILL BROKEN

Post by Alcator » 20 Jan 2018, 20:38

It's been 8 months since ManiaPlanet 4 launch broke the level geometry of the official Platform campaign for Trackmania 2.

You know? This beauty:




What is needed for someone at Nadeo to spend perhaps 1 day re-opening all the levels, forcing them to be "re-calculated" (for lack of a better word), and then pack them together and publish as a patch.

This is yet another request to Nadeo for not ignoring us.

Thank you.

I think I extracted all the maps from this for someone at some point, but I forgot who it was.. so I think someone has converted these maps already?

I don't want to download 65 individual tracks off of maniaexchange and play them in custom (local) play; I want the campaign. It's an OFFICIAL NADEO PRODUCT.

Is that so much to ask? I mean I was able to fix the broken level geometry in all MY tracks with just 3 minutes per track (open in editor --> calculate shadows --> save).

I converted Platform maps myself and tried to modify maker-made title pack sources in order to support Platform mode.

There are a few problems:
- Maker does not support custom MapType, thus making it useless for ShootMania solo campaigns and, in this case, Platform pack (maps appear as not validated).
- Maker doesn't let you choose solo game mode.
- You can't change maps unlock conditions (from rows of 5 to 1 in row).
- Even after modifying source files, there are still problems with giving medals in scripted modes - Solo_SetNewRecord is not working at all, while new method used to save medals is not even working with ShootMania.

What about making the title in the old way instead of TP maker?
I have platform mode in my tm2uf titlepack working.

I'm not making title packs with Maker. I'm using exported sources from Maker-made titles and use them in classic editor - you can customize much more and adapt title to your needs (like add Multienviro support for Pursuit).

While I can see that you are enjoying your discussion, none of this is addressing the key issue - this is NADEO's mess, and NADEO should fix this.

Please, help me exert some pressure on them so that they finally take this seriously.

You're not the first one to ask this. I'm sure it's on their todo list.

This has been reported for such a long time and STILL no answer from any Nadeo crew members, I wouldn't bet on it
