Just wanted to let everyone know that I have Trackmania United Forever (the "full" version of Trackmania Nations Forever) - if anyone is interested, I am doing Xfire Broadcasts of it (Xfire needed).
An Xfire Broadcast is simply an almost-live (because of internet speeds and latency) video/audio (because I'm so nice and I use my CPU cycles to add audio, too
) stream onto the Xfire Broadcast website
. All you need to do to watch is have Xfire installed and be logged in, IM me to have me start the Broadcast (or just to let me know your coming, if someone else is already watching) go to the above link, login to the webpage (it doesn't sync client <-> website logins), and find my video (you have to be on my friends list to watch, however; its my usual username
When you connect it will add you to the video chat room, so no need to IM me separately after just letting me know your interested. I'm more than happy to show you what's different in United vs Nations, along with anything else that I can in-game; it is a really great upgrade, and IMO is worth it all. It would definably be a blast to get a couple DC friends on the new environments and see what else can be made outside of the Stadium!
NOTE: The video system needs ActiveX or a FF plugin (only IE/FF are supported). IMO it would be easier to use IE for it.
