Thumbs up TrackMania SunRise Demo!!!!

Hey everyone, I just saw this on "Attack of the Show" and I have to say this is one of the most fun demos I've played in a long time. TrackMania is a way old game (I don't really remember it) and they remade it to release April 8th.

The demo is fricking awesome. The graphics are really great and so are the special effects. If you like ya some insane racing, check this one out.

Hope you likes!

Starts out discussing the trailer and then the demo later on in the thread.

Edit: But yeah, I agree. Great demo.

Yep - Crazy mode is disabled in the demo - you need to buy the full game if you want that. It should be out now - It's not where I live (New Zealand), but we always get things late.

Default Re: TrackMania SunRise Demo!!!!

Generally wondering, has anyone else tried this game with a 6800 NU? I've got a bit of problem, and I wonder if it relates to the memory usage of the postprocessing (which I imagine requires masses of tex memory to be allocated for additional frame-buffers). When Post effects are turned off, I can run the game totally smoothly at 1280x960 4xAA 8xAF, however when Post is on the game will just crash at this setting. At 1280x960 2xAA with Post on, it'll sometimes work and sometimes crash, and at 1152x864 2xAA it does fine. The thing that irritates me is that performance is still great at 1280x960 2xAA with Post, but I can't deal with the game crashing whenever I load certain tracks. So.. is this a 6800 NU problem? Or is there something else in my system faulting up (I'm a little suspect of my bad PSU, but I've never had any other problems with it, even though it is woefully inadequate. I also can't think why it would cause this of all problems.)
