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.
