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.

This fix no doubt works, due to the hundreds of positive reviews, however I can't seem to get the update file page to load on google chrome. Is there anyway to fix this?
Thanks in advance for any help

When you need extra tinkering to get the game working on Win10 but not on Linux. We truly live in a society.
