TrackMania Nations for Laptops version!

Post by STJ » 26 Jan 2011 11:12

Dear TrackMania,

I am currently playing the game called "TrackMania Nations Forever" in my mini notebook and runs well enough! But if you could make an extra version for laptops (compatible with dx9 but with no very complex graphics) that would be really great!!!

Best regards,
STJ

It's called turning all the settings down to low. When you click on the game icon, click configure and click advanced (or whatever the translation for that is in your language).

Thank you for your interest in my request, but I am not talking about the settings here. It's called... a brand new version for netbooks and notebooks.

So you mean a version for netbooks and notebooks which don't meet the minimum requirements for TrackMania? Would be nice to play TM on an Eee PC and other netbooks, but... who doesn't have a computer with at least 2GB of RAM nowadays? And even if you can play TM on a netbook... what would happen if you went on a server with many players playing at the same time? It would lag. Especially on weak computers like netbooks.
I don't think it would be quite useful... and if you want to play, you can still turn the settings down to low - like anonymous345 said already.

You know that if you buy a (net)book or (note)book, that you cant do much with it other than surfing the net and doing some text editing programs and other easy stuff, wich is were they are disigned for in the first place.

If you want to play games, buy a laptop or desktop, simple as that.
Even todays low end laptops are more than capabel of running this game low-mid with a reasonable framerate.

Anyway, i see no point at all to make a net/note-book version of this game.

it would be nice if you create for example a version with DX7 engine for netbooks (many of them have only SW TnL so it lags on greater tracks).

Sorry to bring up an older post, but if they could somehow make this netbook friendly I would also buy it. I own a regular laptop, but also a netbook. my laptop isn't always convenient to take with me. I owuld like a handful of decent games to play on my netbook besides juts spades, hearts, and euchre.

There are netbooks with Nvidia Ion that can play trackmania no problem.
