Hello,

i'm new to this board but i bought TMSunrise couple of years ago.
I'm allready searching a solution for this problem since the beginning of december.
Actually it's running on my windows 7 computer since 3th of januari. But i didn't found the time to write a walkthrough.
Now i have installed windows 7 on my roommates computer also and he also plays sunrise. Perfect time to write the installation walkthrough.

Here it goes:


1. install the original installation cd. (it will take a while to launch cause the installer is packed in one file.)
DO NOT LAUNCH THE PROGRAM

2. Download the Sunrise xtreme package
Link: http://www.focus-files.com/update/tmsx/ ... update.exe

3. download the update "tmsx_150_to_151_cd_setup"
Link: http://focus.metaboli.fr/Patchs/Tmsx_15 ... _Setup.exe

4. install the extreme package "trackmania_sunrise_extreme_update.exe"
DO NOT LAUNCH THE PROGRAM

5. install the update "Tmsx_150_to_151_CD_Setup.exe"
DO NOT LAUNCH THE PROGRAM
If windows promptes you for the installation file, just click it's installed correctly

6. Now run the Tmsunrise icon on your desktop. CLICK RIGHT! choose to run as administrator.
Don't adjust your settings yet. Just click play.
You will be prompted too run a video test. Click OK
Starforce will ask you to install the protection system: Click yes
click yes again to reboot your system.

7. after rebooting your system windows will say there's a incompatible driver blocked. Ignore this.
his message will appear every time you logon to your system but is doesn't do any harm.

8. Now you have to update the starforce driver. Note that the blocked driver message will remain.
Download the update.

Install it by right-clicking and run as administrator
When a message appears to restart your computer to complete updating, do it.

9. After rebooting double-click the TmSunrise icon on your desktop.
again you will be asked to reboot. Do it.

10.After rebooting double-click the TmSunrise icon on your desktop.
again you will be asked to reboot. This time don't reboot!!
This time it will ask to enter your product key. Fill in your product key and click ok.
It will ask you to search for updtes. Click ok. After that it will tell you it's up to date.

11.The menu will appear. Close it.

12.Now download SunriseX-f0xn.rar
Link: http://users.skynet.be/vierkantduwertje ... X-f0xn.rar

13.Extract the files and replace the original ones in you installation folder with these.

14.Launch the game by right-clicking the "TMSunrise.exe" file in your installation folder and run as administrator.
It will ask you to install additional libraries. Click yes. A message will appear to enter your key again in the launcher.
Click ok.

15.Double click the TmSunrise launcher on your desktop. It will check your internet connection. click allow access when it's prompted.
The click ok. You will see a windows version with the text "please wait'
This can take a while so be patiented.
The launcher will reappear. DON'T CHANGE YOUR SETTINGS YET
Click play.

That's it!

After you made your profile you can exit the game and adjust your settings.


Hope this will make some people happy. I know i am :D

Thanks for posting this :thumbsup:

One issue I'd love to resolve, still, is where after installing the Xtreme expansion, the music doesn't cycle through like it's supposed to. Instead, it plays a single song, then nothing. Then, in the replay, it starts to play the next song. Then, when you play your next race, it plays the song after the one it played during the replay (which is typically skipped), so it always jumps 2 songs ahead with each new track. It's an annoying issue.

Thx for your reply

Yeah we have the same problem, though we disable the tms music and play our own.
Maybe someone else has a solution for this?

Excellent, finally a solution to play it.

Just tried it and works a treat, only note is when you play it the first time and make your profile it's not a case of typing your name in then quitting, you have to click profile and make a change in there then quit as that forces it to save.

Then you can make changes to resolution etc using the launcher.

Once again thanks for this, much appreciated.

In step 15, how long do I have to wait?

when I double click on the TM launcher the program does not respond. Is that supposed to happen?

Hi all, I have some trouble with TMS, I installed TMS and did just everything in right order and in the end, I still cant launch the game. I guess its problem with Starforce, It says error 1257 just when I launch it after point 13. I am really sad now 'cause I love this game, I was playing it a lot on Win Vista and now I have Win 7 64 bit and I just cant get it work. I tried it twice already. Does anybody know whats going on? I will be glad for any response...

you have to start over again. remove the sunrise installation and restart. then run sfremove tool

then reboot and restart the manual again.

Hello all,

I'm from an Lan-party organisation and we've just givin everybody an original copy op TM Sunrise with the purpose to do a Compo with it on out local LAN. But some users can't get it to work with the the steps shown in this topic. Now i noticed that those persons have an I7 processor. Does anyone have a trick to get it to work?

Kind regards,

Arthur "Scooby" de Boom
