If you already used your TMu key you cant do this. Just use your TMu login+pass in TMnf

Yes, with a TMU account everything should work.

With a Nations account no custom content will work, since they can't ban you if you distribute illegal stuff. You should use your United account if you want this. You can use both types of accounts with both games.

I'm a bit confused over custom cars and avatars.. I now have the payed and registered version of the game - with a custom car and avatar. I went on one server and someone said that they could see my silver car... I then went on a different server to see if my avatar worked and someone told me that they could not see it because it was custom content and they had the free version..
But I have seen this dude with a marijuana leaf as an avatar, and a mario kart as a car when i was on the free version..

-Confused- :D

It matters if you have the commercial version if YOU want to use custom stuff, not if others can see it.
You can always see custom stuff (unless you disabled that feature), because in the free Nations it's advertisement for United.
It makes business sense. :)
The someone on the other server was wrong.

Sometimes it takes a while to download custom content.
Look up "Locator", for instance on this forum, or on custom content websites, if you haven't yet.
Locators redirect people to faster download sites, so the custom stuff gets downloaded quicker.
It's possible you're not using a locator yet.

Locators seem to bypass that. O_o I don't have my ports open but people can see my car. (has a locator)

uPnP ftw?

All you need to do is launch game with your TMnf account and go to Profile->Registed paing key and that's all :wink:

Your account will be converted to TMuf one and you can use it for playing TMnf or TMuf

But i recommende you instal TMu and upgade to TMuf - there is much more features and you will be able to play on TMnf server too
