TrackMania Nations Forever (portable ?)

#1 Post by LuisFilipe » Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:04 am

I had TmNf installed in a Vista machine.
Copyed to a 1G USB Pen
Unistalled
Runit from the USB Pen OK

I take the Stick to a XP and try to Run

(complains about d3dx9_30.dll)
update with the latest DirectX drivers
http://www.filehippo.com/download_directx/
DirectX 9.0c (Mar 09)
Microsoft Corporation - 92.43MB (Freeware)

It Runs but creates a Folder "TrackMania" In My Documents

Changing the Nadeo.ini
UserSubDir=TrackMania
To
UserSubDir=H:\TrackMania
as no or little efect

Give UP (for now), but it runs
(don't know if writes registry entry's or other stuff)

If someone care to help...


BTW: TrackMania United Forever and TrackMania Nations Forever do not include StarForce

you only need to copy this d3dx9_30.dll file to your trackmania dir and it will run
no need to instal directx
UserSubDir=TrackMania
you might want to use jauntepe to redirect the filesystem

this is my TmForeverLauncher_jauntePE.ini

Code: Select all

[Launch]
Path=%appdrive%\Program Files\TMNationsForever\%appname%.exe
JPERuntime=.\jauntePE.dll
JPERuntimeIni=.\%appname%_jauntePE.ini
JPERuntimeReg=.\JpeReg\%appname%.reg
JPERuntimeWFS=.\JpeWfs\%appname%
RedirReg=0
RedirWFS=1
AppReg=0
AppWFS=1
ExeDir=1

[Registry]
Use=0
Data=.\JpeReg\%appname%.reg

[Filesystem]
Use=1
Data=.\JpeWfs\%appname%

[Redirection]
UseIcon=1
ModFrame=1
RedirMSI=0
RedirMisc=0
MemRegistry=2
FillRegistry=1
RegMerge=1
RegIgnDel=1
ExcludeAppDir=1
WFSMerge=1

[RegistryExclude]
1=*

[RegistryInclude]

[PortableRegExclude]
the d3dx9_30.dll
http://www.autohotkey.net/~emdktl/tm/d3dx9_30.dll
the launcher
http://www.autohotkey.net/~emdktl/tm/Tm ... uncher.exe
the ini file
http://www.autohotkey.net/~emdktl/tm/Tm ... untePE.ini
the jpe dll

TrackMania Nations Forever (free version) - racing game

TrackMania Nations Forever is the most popular online pc racing game. It fuels 7 different racing environments; hundreds of thousands of tracks and millions of players to compete with. You can download the car you are dreaming of, paint it, drive it through insane tracks made of loopings, ramps and off roads.
I'm a little confused as to whether the program is the full version or liteware, but here's the details I've got.

I like driving/racing games but haven't played many in quite some time so I started looking and came across these. I've been messing with a TFC server too much lately to get into this right now but if it works maybe I'll have to try it. --> http://www.tm-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=15652

JauntePE version from this very site? ---> viewtopic.php?t=4717

Found a couple others but don't look quite legit to me so I'll just post these.

JauntePE site --> http://jauntepe.sourceforge.net

Downloads for d3dx9_30.dll from dll-files.com --> https://www.dll-files.com/d3dx9_30.dll.html

I checked both downloads on virustotal and had no hits.
