Free TrackMania Changes

The TrackMania Forums have word on changes operation of TrackMania Nations Forever, the free version of Nadeo's racing game. They say players with free accounts are now restricted to direct access to freezone servers, which are hosted by Nadeo, explaining that change is prompted by the closure of Massive, Microsoft's in-game advertising service. There is a way around this, however, as they add that players will also be able to join other servers (such as the Blue's News TrackMania Server) through their favorites list, saying: "We are aware that the game can't be bought by many (even in some nations) This is why we keep the solution to enter a server with the favorite list function. This list will be reset and limited to three for free account. A server can simply be added through a tmtp link like this 'tmtp://#addfavourite=serverlogin'." Thanks peteham.

YES!!!! That is absolutely brilliant news! Here's hoping that they're gone for good.
