No.
Simply because Trackmania will never be finished.

Did yo read the recent answer of Hylis in the Ubisoft topic?

We do not intend to grow again in the short term and be able to concentrate on projects, so all the time invested should be visible. Nadeo is more than ever a great place to work, and we now should do great games. Both Maniaplanet and Trackmania Turbo sold more than one million units, but both has some big "disadvantages" It was too difficult to overcome them in this decade. Hopefully we will do it in the next one, thanks to the team and Ubisoft.

I guess this is official enough, since its himself the boss :wink:

So, we can expect some further changes, but not right now.
When? Nobody knows...

Now that Zerator is doing his thing, the claim that the game works fine for most people is proven even more - there has been a 400% increase in players on Stadium, and the forum posts I'm seeing of people with technical issues is either related to them not updating their dedicated server, people who forgot their password or account information, or the "no sound" issue. (I still think they should fix that, but it also still seems pretty rare.)

Either way my point is; the game does work fine for most people. Just look at how many people are playing now without issues.
*I don't create a public skin that doesn't work for everyone , especially if it is not free of charge !
*when I update my skin it is functional for everyone .
I'd also like to touch on this again - this is what every single developer/artist/whatever thinks and wants. Obviously, Nadeo also doesn't want to release a game that doesn't work for everyone. But eventually people will find problems, whether you like it or not. Some people might have very specific system setups that you never tested for, so you think your game is "100% bug free" because you weren't able to test it on all configurations.

Anyway.. I still think the entire question of "when will the game be finished" is, quite frankly, a stupid and unanswerable question. And I'll leave it at that.

Hello ;)

I will answer in order:

Hello tm marc,
A game can be finished and playable for everyone. I mentioned examples of games in my previous messages.

Thank you for this information I hadn't read it, it is nice to read it actually:) .
(A real problem on this forum too, it would be nice to have the top management positions to get the direct information in a simple way.)
is it possible to have a link to the hylis quote ? , thx ;)

It is deplorable and unworthy for the player that a professional video game team cannot correct the serious disadvantages created by themselves in 10 years......
For the rest I hope they will not create the same cumulative problems for their community which today is broken into several pieces.
I hope they will succeed their dreams !


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello miss ;) , I'll repeat it in order here:

Zerator or the increase of people who gamble do not prove anything about the general problems in trackmania
[(hylis proof comes from the writing in this quote :
"but both has some big "disadvantages"
]

The gameplay is favorably playable and does not have too many direct problems, that is a fact.
The topic talks about games in general that don't seem to be finished, there's not only gameplay in a video game.
(especially in maniaplanet / Nadeo bases its maniaplanet concept on multiple creativity not on his gameplay )

No I don't agree with you there are not only these problems you mention on this forum, but much more upstream and downstream.

To answer your quote:
But eventually people will find problems, whether you like it or not. Some people might have very specific system setups that you never tested for, so you think your game is "100% bug free" because you weren't able to test it on all configurations.
Fortunately there are problems in any creation.
The problem is not the form but the content: Om23 explained it very well:
answer: NEVER?
problem: with every update there are two new bugs for one fixed bug!
solution: stop doing new stuff and fix bugs only!
To answer your last sentence: this is your opinion and I am writing to you: N'est stupide que la stupidité! ;)
