Important! TM Patch requirement for Nadeo, Star Track and Classic replays27-May-2021
Posted By:   rad 
An important announcement for everyone interested in uploading replays to classic, star tracks or nadeo maps:

From June 14th 2021 on it is required to have the TrackMania Competition Patch installed in order to be eligible to upload replays to those types of maps.

What is the TM Competition Patch?
It is a special patch for the game that stops players from cheating, such as by using macros, slowing down the game and other forms of injecting inputs.

Why is this necessary?
It gets easier and easier to have computer programs assist or completely take over your run (for example TAS'ing). Sometimes, it can be very difficult to detect if players use such external tools (which are considered cheats!). Requiring the patch allows us to stop cheating.

How does the patch work?
The patch is simply installed into the game's installation directory and from there, the patch will always work when you open the game. The patch is in no way invasive - it does not install any low level drivers on your system or collect any data about it.

Why only on Classic, Star Tracks and Nadeo maps?
We cannot ask every single player that uploads replays to TMX to use the patch. Some players play once every few month and will have no idea that this patch exists. Asking everyone to download the patch, therefore, feels like asking too much. Instead, we focus on the most prestigious tracks where clean leaderboards are most important.

More Info & Download
For more information and the download check the website of the patch, the official discord server of the developer or the forum thread.
Disclose past cheated replays to TMX19-May-2021

Disclose past cheated replays to TMX (blog entry)

Fair play is important to us - we want to ensure that our records database is clean of cheated replays. Unfortunately, it's possible that some past records have been cheated without us knowing.

We're currently investigating past replays on the sites. That is a tall order, which is why we want to give players the opportunity to assist us in our investigation.

We therefore offer players the chance to privately let the crew know about their own cheated replays, and how they were cheated. This could go a long way towards helping with our investigations on the technical side.

In return, we will reduce, or remove, the penalty that would have happened had we found the replays on our own. And we will not share your name with anyone outside the crew.

Statement about ongoing replay investigations18-May-2021

In light of recent findings by a third party, some replays have come under scrutiny for alleged unusual behavior. The MX crew was consulted about these findings, but offered no conclusions.

As host of one of the largest databases of replays, this has prompted us within the ManiaExchange crew to begin our own independent investigation. We have no estimation for when our investigation will conclude, as we want to look at this from every possible angle.

We urge people to keep an open mind and always trust people are innocent until proven otherwise.

Freestyle Cup August 202002-Aug-2020
Posted By:   NitroGuy!»UD 
On an impromptu note, I have decided to make the final map of the FC season a TM 2020 map, Bowl Extrem by Diabl0. I figured this would be a great way to spread freestyle to the new TM players and test the waters for possible future Freestyle Cups.

To play this map:
•Open TM 2020
•Join the "Freestyle Community" club
•Find this month's map in the "Maps" section, be sure to record your replay on the 1 cp version!

Time limit is still 1:55-2:05, deadline is August 31, 2020. Have fun!
