Help!

Post by Agent42 » 05 Sep 2009 06:57

Hello,

I had TMO installed on our previous computer, this computer died. But we we're lucky enough to be able to copy the contents of the hard drive, and i would like to be able to play my file again, but i can't find it.

Does anyone know where the Player profile file is? and also i made an awsome track, could you please help me find the file?

Thanks,
Agent42

hey, my names jake and im new here, BUT i know quite alot about computers.

when your computer died, what sort of compatble hard drive (pen stick e.c.t) did you copy it on to, becouse i had an old machine that crashed on me and i copyed all of my stuff onto a normal pen stick and all of my files got jumbled up, so then i tried copying them all onto a cd, lets just say that i wont be seing them again posting.php?mode=reply&f=25&t=22864#

thanks

jake

I have the original (...and I mean "original"...) TrackMania that I had working on an old computer of mine, but I had to reformat it (for what reason, I don't remember; it was quite a while ago). I re-installed it on my laptop, which has Vista on it, and updated it all the way to TrackMania Original. The problem is when I tried running it on my laptop, it encountered an unknown error upon initialization of the CD protection scan. Is there a fix for this?

PS:
I understand I posted something like this in a different topic, but I'm eager to get a response (...AND to have working copies of all of the TM classics...), so I felt it better to post it in a more recent topic. With that said, PLEASE don't come at me for my choice.

Nice to see someone still plays TMO :) Have you tried playing online Robi ? About the sticker...I think you have to do it like this: 1. create your sticker like DDS file and like TGA file (every sticker in the game data has those two files in their directory). 2. Make a new directory in TrackMania Original/GameData/Painter/Stickers. 3. Copy your two files in that directory.
How to create those two files, in what programe, i don't know, but the procedure should be right. It works for avatars, car skins...Let me know how it goes. 8)
