Custom Stickers

Post by Pr1m3 » 04 Feb 2006 16:52

Hi there, I'm trying to make some custom stickers, any idea how to get them to show in the list? When I look at the preset ones in the folders they all have a .tga for the sticker and a .dds... Any ideas? thanks :D

The Icon.dds file is the icon shown on the toolbar. Photoshop can save dds's with a certain plugin. As for the sticker.tga, that's the sticker itself. You need to make a tga with transparency (alpha channel) for the sticker to look right.
I could make you some stickers from any image if you want. Just let me know. :)

I saved a Cobra render from BF2 in the folder, i'll recheck to make sure alpha channel is on, thanks :)
Any idea where I can get the plugin? Or which one?

Well, just to make sure, check if the path is correct. The two files should be something like

TrackMania Nations\GameData\Painter\Stickers\BF2Cobra\Sticker.tga
TrackMania Nations\GameData\Painter\Stickers\BF2Cobra\Icon.tga

Both files need to be there in order for it to work.
You can get the DDS plugin from the nVidia site (http://developer.nvidia.com/object/nv_t ... tools.html)

If all still doesn't work, then there must be something wrong with the files themselves. Make sure you save them in the correct format with the correct properties.

The program I use for .dds is "dxtbmp". I also found a Windows patch-thing that allows previews in Windows.

Yes I've plugins for Ifranview (I use it to view all sorts of images quickly) and photoshop (nvidia plugin).
I've been having problems with transparency, though, and I can't get Brushes to work...

Again, I'll gladly make any stickers you need. Just give me the files (preferably in good format such as tga) and any especifications or modifications I should make. If you don't have images, just tell me what you want your sticker to be and I'll find my way to make it :)

Hi - I'm new here, and new to the game but I really think I will be getting into it a lot more...

We are going to be having a tournament at work, and I really would like the logo on my car. The photos is here:
Logo JPG: Here

Could someone convert it so I can add it onto my car - pleeeeease :( - I wish I could do it, I know quite a lot about Photoshop, but don't have the plug in or any experience with this game.

THANK YOU :D :D :D :D :D

lol, you have the same name as a character in Warner's ER series...
Anyway, here's your sticker: http://cablemodem.fibertel.com.ar/rebel ... Global.zip

Just unzip it to your "\TrackMania Nations\GameData\Painter\Stickers" directory.
I kept it the original, but if you want you can add any effect like shadow and such in photoshop and then save the file again. 8)
