Just go to the Painter and experiment. You can pretty much learn everything by yourself! :roll:

I know this may sound silly, But I've been making Stickers and signs for a while, but when saving a TMN Stadium skin, I get an error saying something about a 3D skin (sorry, don't remember the actuall error message). My curious if someone could tell me the settings I need to use in the Nvidia Plugin for saving a .DDS file for the skin. It appearsthe settings for signs and cars are different LOL A screen-shot would be helpful :1

The settings I use are DXT3 (explicit alpha), with mip maps. That works for me.

for many TMS models it can be done, for the standard Stadium model it's very very difficult.

just open the .zip of the skin, open the images .dds files, and try... ;)
