Having problems with starting up the game after the update, when it tells me maniaplanet needs to restart for the update (after i've downloaded it), steam won't restart it for some reason. Every time i start it up again it tells me the same thing again. Does anyone know any solutions?
Tits in my ass May 8, 2014 @ 10:58am 
HELP US EVER SINCE THIS UPDATE MY GAME REGULARLY CRASHES WITH NO CRASH REPORT!!! I am not the only one with this issue! Many people in the steam community section under the betas rate option have commented with the same issue! I have windows 7 64 bit. Please message me if you need any more info to resolve the issue!

I just purchased TrackMania Valley and it says it can't connect to the network. All my other apps work just fine. I also have Canyon and Stadium and played those before ManiaPlanet 3. I think there is something wrong with the new client. Can someone please help??
