Important! TM Patch requirement for Nadeo, Star Track and Classic replays6:32 PM 27-May-21 : Quote : Report : #

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.

Important: If you try to upload a replay to the top 30 on a Nadeo, Star or Classic map that was not driven with the patch installed after June 14th, your upload will be denied.

Yes, you need it if you want to be able to post replays to nadeo, star or classic LB type tracks. The patch works for both TMUF and TMNF.

When I try to download the patch, my antivirus detects that it is a malicious file that should be deleted and not downloaded. How is this so? I like the idea of not cheating and I would like to download it, but right now I'm not trusting that file. Will this be fixed in future releases?

Thanks for the efforts
