Once every 6 months I drop by these forums to check the current state of TM.

Ever since TMUF I hoped that TM2 would provide the same experience - 5 or 6 environments with multiple game modes like puzzle and platform as well as an online multiplayer mode with all the environments.

Sadly, every time I read through the updates, things get stranger and stranger ... it seems like you have to be a tech expert to understand how to use all of these new products - while features of the core games remain broken (or become broken) and don't get fixed.
Those blogposts are aimed at content creators, not necessarily people who are just playing the games. And they do fix a lot of issues in their bigger updates. Can you bump some of the threads with the bugreports of the "broken features" so that it becomes known to Nadeo that lots of people want it fixed? Thanks! :thumbsup:

@TMarc:
I've bought TM Turbo and enjoyed it very much! It's just sad that it doesn't see any continued development anymore and that it was split off of the main community of the game.

@Miss:
I like your optimism but to me it feels like these forums don't have an impact on the future of Trackmania 2 anymore.

If you're not going to report bugs, they also won't get fixed. :thumbsup:

I've been reporting the broken level geometry of the OFFICIAL PLATFORM CAMPAIGN for 20 months... I've even proposed a solution and estimated that it would take a JUNIOR level employee, quite literally someone who is on DAY ONE of working at Nadeo, one working day to reopen all the official levels in the map editor, calculate shadows (which fixes the issue), save it (... continue with all ~65 levels of the campaign) ... then pack the campaign and release it as a patch.

I've been asking Nadeo to spend ONE. F-ing. DAY. to fix their OFFICIAL PRODUCT.
I've asked Ubisoft to exert some pressure over Nadeo. No response.
I've tried shaming them on Twitter into doing it.
I screamed at Alinoa at these forums, trying to shame HER into fixing HER own creation. Some of you know how that went.

But the issue itself? 2 years after the "new release" of ManiaPlanet which caused the problem. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Still going strong,


I have a similar beef with Respawn Entertainment and their Apex Legends: Their mid-April patch introduced a nasty bug which would take 3 minutes to fix. It was reported by someone else on Day 1 of that patch. It's been a month, and they still haven't gotten around to fixing it. The bug? If you type "f" in a text chat with your squad mates, you will mute them (their microphones), without warning, because their "Press F to mute squad" doesn't check if you're currently in chat or not.

I am frustrated, because Platform is THE most beloved mode for me, and I can't play the official campaign. I don't understand how can a game development company have a game-breaking bug for TWO YEARS, have someone repeatedly telling them how to fix it, have the calculation of what it would take (= virtually nothing) to fix it, and not do squat about it.

This has been your 2-years anniversary rant from Alcator.

See you in 2020.

This is why they don't do anything. Just saying. This is toxic behavior that generally gets ignored.

But we can understand this behaviour on 3 points:

1: The time of problem solving in a video game
2: Failure to solve major problems in a video game.
3: Failure to communicate updates and the game creation team

I don't want this thread to go off-topic too much, so I'm not gonna go into this discussion yet again. We've had this discussion a lot already.

So let's try to stick to the topic at hand - merging all TM's together. :thumbsup:
