Using my skin...

Post by Crusard » 03 Feb 2006 01:36

I'm having trouble making my skin to show. When I go to a multiplayer, it becomes the dafault StadiumCar skin (That white one with some nadeo and tmn stickers). So what's going on with that? Also, how do I know if my skin is being transfered to other players, and usually how long does it take?

I also heard you need the cd-key from previous titles for p2p skin sharing to work. Is this true?????

I have same problem.
Well one think i see is that when i made my own skin and i went online the game ask me if i wanted to shear the new file and i agree and pepole saw my skin
But now it dont ask me anymore i dont know whybut i think that could be one of the reasons

i think it's an option for servers just to block or allow upload of skins and avatars.
afaik the dedicated server for win32 that was released has by default to block uploads.

same problem here, when i put the zip in the right dir i can select the skin in the profile menu etc.. it all works.. i join a game and can see my car.
now if i ask someone if they could see it they said no(they saw the nation skin). when i overwrite an "official" skin for instance USA.zip and select thatone the people see my car with default skin (greyone).
now i sended my skin over to someone else and let him connect to a server and it worked for the guy. i could see my skin on his car.
so i don't know where the problem is.
also tried to some stuff with the locator file but no succes..
would be greatly appriciated if someone of nadeo could answer.

ps: all the the p2p settings etc are enabled.
ps²: to the guy above. that's a negative i tested it on the same server with the guy i sended my skin to and it worked for him on that server (not for me).
thx.

maybe the guy needs to have dled the skin so he can see it.

And when you have a cd-keu to authent your game, ppl dl the skin automatically.

I think thats how it works

the guy that i gave the skin didn't authenticate and i could see it, without having the skin installed myself.

the p2p is enable only for authenficated account

the problem is that if it would not be like this, too many datas that can cause problem (critical for childs) would circulate online. now, if we see one data like this, we can ban the account.
