It is a demo where you can register in ManiaPlanet and download Shootmania, Trackmania C, S and V. (TM Stadium 48h, and so on, but remember to finish all downloads before the end of holiday, cuz it is double time so TM Stadium 96h)
You can play them for limited time only. My time expired. And I need to say, the track editor sucks. It is a bit diffrent, but it is harder to navigate. And I hate the Canyon and Valley driving model. This is why I play TM UF. I prefer the older Sunrise X, but it won't run on W8. Why I like it? The crazy mode. If you do not know what it is, here's a little explanation:
The already existing tracks created by Nadeo are quite hard, but they are always more simple and shorter than any normal track. The point of this mode is again "as fast u can finish", BUT, there are no medal ghosts like in normal races, there are many ghosts (in my tracks up to 50 ghosts, omg these lags). The race consists of many rounds. Every ghosts is a time to beat, the higher the round the harder to beat. Every beaten ghost is replaced with your ghost from last round.
A little easier: Let's pretend as it was in game (below) (G)host 1 - 15 sec G2 - 14 sec G3 - 13 sec G4 - 12 sec and so on
If you had less than 15 seconds time in 1st round, you pass it and Ghost 1 is replaced with your ghost from last round, so you know how were you driving to get a time like this.
Shit, that's a lot Tagging to let you know and maybe you will download the demo: @nfsworld101
