Tutorial
1. Edit the Nadeo.ini -file (This is the default installation 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 don't worry, it works great with TM 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, the game is ready to play. Depending on what the problem was, the game should work well now.

You can also change your region if you don't prefer the current "en" setting.

e.g.: I'm from Hungary (HU-hu), so I changed my region to "hu"

For people who have the download failing just copy the link into a separate google tab, should work fine :)
