Car skins wont work ?

Post by |>PGS<| Hazard » 05 Jan 2011 08:14

Hello,

Im new to this game and love it :)

Got TMNF but off course i want more lol

Using win7 64 bit.

So iv seen people add car skins i made all the folders neded;

Document --> TmForever --> skins --> Vehicles --> Carcommon

Now iv added a few 2d and 3d car skins.. all i get in game is white formula 1 cars with the skin cars name under it.

So am i doing something wrong ore do i need a MOD for it ore anything ?

Did read these 2 topics;

If you have Nations: (...)/skins/vehicles/stadiumCar (not CarCommon, that is for United)

if still doesnt work:
-Make sure the files are .zip and not .rar
-Maybe the .dds files inside were corrupted when downloading? Try to download other cars and see if they work

idk what else could cause this

...because you didn't follow the examples I showed exactly. "CarCommon" is not shown, nor mentioned for a reason. Nations players (and I specifically mention this fact) have Stadium, you only see that folder, you only use that folder, you only NEED that folder.

By creating your own folder structures (possibly advised by people who don't play Nations, so their advice could be incorrect for that game version), you don't follow the examples, and you introduce your own set of problems.

Simple really. Follow the correct examples correctly, and you get correct features. I'm glad YOUR error was pointed out to you by Enryx and YOU fixed YOUR mistake. :roflol:

Job done, well answered Enryx.

As ever, I'll restate this : TM Nations does not have peep2peer file sharing enabled. 2D painted skins, 3D models, funny car horns, loc's and all custom content is not sent out by TM Nations (Stadium only, that means). Nations players are always shown online to others using a default Stadium car, and in their own country choice. No one except you sees your TM-Nations car changes. TM-United players (paid for their game) so they do send all that custom content out, and yes United players are in Stadium servers too, so Nations players see their cars, and fancy paintjobs. :3

The problem was that i had to register to carpark to get the right downloads. You can download with out registating but it just wont work :) Dident explain that any wher.

And yes only i see the skin and maybe i like to see something difrent then always the same car :)

I am going to buy United when i get my payment this month so then i can fully enjoy the game.
