Now that's one of the best looking mods I've seen for any TM game. I'll have to check it out!

I find it quite humorous that they use the phrases "Totally realistic handling" and "over boosted jet engines" in the same sentence.

1. Right click on your name does the same thing as pressing delete. What this does is indicate that you are ready to go to the next race. Some servers have a delay built in for showing results; if all the players on the server click themselves (or press del) it will advance immediately to the next r...

That's an interesting quote; however I still can easily see the viewpoint of Nadeo, that if they unprotect an .exe it will make it that much easier to crack the next one. If you're talking about totally different games I can see where a dev might release a patch to eliminate the need for SF, or at l...

I have had success with using separate hardware profiles. In XP, you can create a copy of the current profile and then boot into it and modify it. I happen to keep an SF free profile available to boot into, plus another one for when I have a specific piece of hardware in the computer. Simply right c...

I read an article today by the editor in chief of my favourite game magazine, PC Gamer, about how Starforce broke his computer. This is not whining by a software pirate or speculation by some blogger - this is the editor of a magazine who uses nothing but legitimate software. http://next-gen.biz/in...

A company that values customer satisfaction at the expense of profits is a failed company. No two ways about it. Any device driver you install potentially has the capabilities you describe. This isn't a starforce-unique issue at all. FYI, a rootkit is a piece of software that allows an intruder to c...

I think there will be lots of players because it is free, but I think many will get bored of it and go back to TMO or TMS. At least I will.

So what's the problem with having some turnover in the top ten? Just because they worked long and hard on some lousy server on tracks they memorized and can drive in their sleep, doesn't qualify someone for the top ten. No, the major problem with the TMS ladder is that they are not forced into offic...

I think the max points should be directly related to the total number of people on the ladder. This way it's not capped, the top players will always be very close in ranking and the top amount won't go up too quickly. The only other solution is to eliminate the idea of points altogether and make it ...

Well the only other way to balance points is to do it the way it is implemented in all the other TM games, so the high rankers lose points if they lose to someone of low rank. Either way, you have to cap how many points the highest ranked players can earn. Right now, they get too many points when th...

I think that the fix for the scoring system is very simple, I was kind of surprised that it was not implemented to begin with. The way it works now, as Toto mentioned, if a high ranked player beats a bunch of players of lower rank, he does not earn any points. I've seen a player ranked in single dig...

Easiest way is probably to use remote desktop. This is assuming you have XP Pro.

Yep, Ladder has been out for most of the afternoon/evening.

It's nothing on your end, just wait and hopefully things will get squared away soon.
