Skin not showing up to other players.

Post by anzezaf » 10 Jul 2011 15:39

I've painted my nation's car a bit ( wings, air intakes..) and saved it. Then i chose it, and went onto a server with my buddy. I asked him what the car looks like and he said plain white.

I understand that this is custom content, but i DO have a TMUF account, so i don't get it why it didnt work.

Have you got "upload" or share skins or something enabled in the Trackmania menu? If you havem't then your skin won't be seen by others.

Firstly i would check that the firewall/antivirus apps on your PC are not blocking the app from communication on certain ports.

Secondly i would ensure that all the windows updates are done, and most impotantly with TM, ensure you are on the latest Internet Explorer version.

The next step is to make sure the P2P port configured in the settings is accesible and pointed from the extenal router, to your internal IP address (With a firewall rule).

*I think portforwarding dot com, is a place people go for this kindof stuff, but i've never used the site.

Of course sometimes home routers are open and free to access any port range on any device, but not all hardware is so friendly.

Once all them steps above are checked you should hopefully have some progress. If not let us know and i'm sure we can get to the bottom of your issue.
