Many thanks to OP. My kids got TMS for Christmas, and this process worked perfectly for getting it working on their Win 7 machine. :D

Any ideas?

The only guy I know who has Windows 8 is Calinstelistu, so I think he could help you.

Hello,

i followed the Guide, but it wont work full for me. It always says he cant find my video performance. The Problem with the Starforce driver got solved by the Files on page one.
But everytime i star the game, it opens a window with white screen.
In the taskmanager there is a process with TMSunrise.exe 13%CPU and 40MB Ram, but nothing happens.
I have:
Win 7 64x
intel i7-870 (2,93 GHz Quadcore)
Nvidea Geforce 560Ti
6GB Ram

Would be nice if someone can help me, still want to play this game after years ;)

Edit: I have this Version of the Game(Add-On Extreme included and Version 1.151):

Thx, for your answer :)

The game start, also when i start it by using the launcher, but it opens only a white window and than nothing happens :(

By the way, i tried all compatibility modes, but it didn't worked.

Unfortunately they do not update a good (old) game like this :(

Help me! I did everything, but at step 15 when there should be the text "please wait", there is only a window with a white screen! I deinstalled everything and did it again: The same problem:(
I really want to play it again!

Hmm..white screen again. This sounds like an issue that Nadeo should look into. I hope they see this posts and try to fix it.

I have the same problem with the white screen and I have the same game like Playerforever.
I think I know what could be the problem. I got Windows 7 in December 2011 and installed it with this description and everything worked, I plaied it a long time online as one of the last players and got finally rank 48 in the ladder. My graphic card was a ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 Series.
But in December 2012 I got a new graphic card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650. And since I have this graphic card I have the problem with the white screen.
Playerforever also has a NVIDIA so I think maybe TMS isn't compatible with NVIDIA graphic cards.
Although in the configurations it identifys the graphic card, but since I have the NVIDIA I have the white screen too :(

Sounds logical. Unfortunately, the game is obviously not up to date. :?

How to run TMS "non Extreme" Version on Win Vista/7

Post by promarijan » 09 Sep 2013 08:47

I've done a way better Solution for TMS!!!
Follow these Steps and you will have success!

WHY THIS SOLUTION IS BETTER?>>>Because you can play the default TMS-Version that you have! I can play my old 1.4.6 without any Update! :3

Only reboot windows when i say it!


1.Install your TMS from the CD...

2.Download and install the TMSExtreme Addon.
Link: http://www.focus-files.com/update/tmsx/ ... update.exe

3.Download and install the 1.5.0 to 1.5.1 Update
Link: http://focus.metaboli.fr/Patchs/Tmsx_15 ... _Setup.exe

4.Download and Install the Starforce update as adminstrator
Link: http://www.star-force.com/support/sfdrvup.zip

5.After you have installed the driver-update launch TmSunrise.exe... It will ask you to install driverstuff... Do it! Now reboot your system!

---5.5.---If your CD-check succeed after launching "TmSunrise.exe" and no more driver incompatibility is shown, go on with step 7!

6.Download and overwrite your Gamedata with the files in the package
Link: http://users.skynet.be/vierkantduwertje ... X-f0xn.rar
Then launch the Game (TmSunrise.exe), it will ask you again to install some driver-stuff... Do it again...
Then reboot your System!

Information!If it doesn't work yet, don't worry! I get at this point always a "transparent" screen in 640x480 without mouse... Thats normal!

7.Delete the TrackMania Sunrise folder but don't uninstall the game! Just delete all Data...

8.Now Install the default TMS onto your Computer.

Configuration: To configure the Game, start the launcher! It will do kind of benchmark but just ignore this and press ok everytime... Then you have the launcher to configure your game!

Playing TMS:You have to start TMS directly! (TmSunrise.exe) But then it will work as usually... If you click on "Play" in the launcher, nothing will happen...


IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Don't Install the Extreme-addon!!! Don't do it! It will destroy your TmSunrise...
The update brought to you a better diskcheck but will make your TMS unplayable...

We have done the Patch only for the Starforce driver! NOT FOR TM!
So don't update to 1.5.0!


Help and Support
If it won't work proper:

1. try the guide again...

2. try the original guide and go on with step 7 from my guide!

If everything fails! Your Windows is the problem and there is no solve for you... (Instead of reinstalling Windows but i don't think that anybody would do that)

Or go and install on a seperate partition Windows XP just for games that dont work at all with the newer games... (TRACKMANIA 1.0 The red cover)


Are there any Bugs?
Currently i think no... I didnt get any sound or music bugs or something other...
Everything works fine!
