tm-ladder.com: v5

Post by smurf » 13 Apr 2008 23:02

Hy all,

I would like to announce that ladder parts of tm-ladder.com (tmn and tmu) will be temporarily closed when tranckmania forever will arrive. This partial closing will be for an indeterminate time and I hope it will be as short as possible.
Why will I close those parts: I can’t get players ranking on forever master servers (in fact I can get some rankings but Nadeo doesn’t want I do that so I won’t do it).
So, I’m waiting that Nadeo installs a new stats server but they are still working on the forever client.

To summarize what will be impacted:

On tm-ladder.com:
- TMN ladder part will be off
- TMU ladder part will be off
- TMN and TMU userbars will be off and be replaced by a standby image or by the nickname of the player without his ladder ranking (I don’t know for the moment)

On the maniaviewer:
The maniaviewer will be completely off. In fact I can’t get real address corresponding to short manialinks address and forever adds in manialinks construction need a big adaptation work. I don’t know if maniaviewer will work again and it’s not a priority.
This closing will impact preview links of tm-sites and tm-carpark.

On tmladder-api: (http://tmladder.free.fr for those who don’t know it [fr only])
This website will be completely off as long as tm-ladder.com won’t be ok.
For tm-ladder-gadget users please take a look on teris website.


Be sure that I’m sorry of this announcement but I will do all I can to restore tm-ladder as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.
Fabien

Why people are always complaining ?
You get a huge improved new game for free.
You will have many more features, better graphics, more options...
And it is compatible with your old tracks. So you won't lose with the change.

So why stay with TMN. Just try TMN-F and invite all your friends to join there.
I can't see what reason speaks against that except:

[ ] you are a booster and fear the new ladder
[ ] you are a cracker that steals accounts
[ ] you are stupid
[ ] you are never open for new things
[ ] all of the above

At some distant time in the future, sure! But for now it will still be there although I see no reason for you and your friends not to migrate to TMNF.
inactive, sorry

With all the posts I have read within the last 24 to 48hrs in regards to (TMN PLAYERS either Complaining, Crying or saying "We REFUSE TO UPGRADE TO TMNF or better yet to TMU with the new TMUF Update) I am completely SHOCKED.... :shock:

What part of NEW & IMPROVED don't they understand>? lmao I mean really..... They are all turning down a NEW UPDATE that makes TMN look like a flaming POS; "No offence intended Nadeo... TMN was the bomb in its day, but that day has COME & GONE lol"; a new game platform that 99% of them have NEVER SEEN...... :shock:
Yet a vast majority of those same people support something like MS VISTA "Which in fact is the worst distributed OS ever created to date "This comment coming from a Tech/Admin/software developer since 1984, << myself.. (remember Win ME?); but with their lack of knowledge firmly support something like that because "MS said the WOW IS NOW & ITS BETTER THAN ANYTHING IN THE WORLD" at face value, not realizing just how bad their hardware & system resources, let alone their privacy is being raped to no end,.... lmao (for the record this is NOT meant to start some silly-ass argument over which os is better XP or VISTA) so don’t bother posting an argument, I will NOT waste my time responding to that statement, this forum is for TM period and I made it ONLY to prove a point.....

I have NEVER in my time as an Online Gamer EVER seen such friction about having the opportunity to UPGRADE to something that is so much better than I have over this issue...


As Ron White., a USA comic once said.... "You can change allot of things in this world BUT, You Can't Fix Stupid"......

You will get a completely NEW FREE GAME instead, better, with better features, graphics, ladder and all of that. So you all better stop complaining.

It's just :shock: when I see posts like this.

I didn't make this topic to know if the update to Forever is a good or bad thing. If you want to play only tmn maps in tmnF you can and if you want to use new blocks you can. So everybody will do what he want. Don't insult Nadeo work talking about a thing you never see !

I think the update subject of tmn to tmnf is close so please don't flood this topic.

You will be able to use the same graphic settings as before.
Just try it. I think it will work as good as old TMN for you.

TMU system requirements:
Windows 2000/XP/XP-x64/Vista
Pentium IV 1.6GHz / AthlonXP 1600+
256 MB (512 MB with Vista)
3D accelerator 16 MB DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics card
16 bit DirectX compatible sound card
DirectX 9.0c or more
1.5 GB free disk space

So if you have at least that, it should be fine. I ran the beta on an Athlon 1800+ and it worked fine.

You will win points only on validated servers by Nadeo (server with a min an max ranking). So boost servers won't be autorized by Nadeo to be hight rank. So boost may be not possible.
