By Komisario Palmu
This guide will probably help you if you are experiencing the white screen issues, graphical bugs or launching problems with Nations Forever. These steps solved my problems.

Tutorial
1. Edit Nadeo.ini -file (this is the default path, your game files might be elsewhere.)
C:\Program Files\(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TrackMania Nations Forever\Nadeo.ini

2. Find a row with "Distro=XXXXX". Delete contents after "Distro=" and change it to "Distro=MILIN". Save and close the file.

3. Download the update file (it says "United Forever" but it doesn't matter, it works with Nations too)
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/TmUnitedForever_Update_2010-03-15_Setup.exe

4. Install the patch and point it to your Trackmania Nations Forever folder, for example:
C:\Program Files\(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TrackMania Nations Forever

5. That's it! When the installation is finished, you are ready to play. Depending on what the problem was, the game should work well now.
