Hi all,

Does someone know how I can import a image, how does it work to import an image from the web, and how does it work to do it from my pc?

To import an image to the mediatracker, it's just to place the image you want to have in this folder: dir\My Documents\Trackmania\Mediatracker\Images. I don't know which filetypes that works, but at least good-old .jpg works for me, and .dds and .bik works too as I can see from TTC2-images.

If you want to have images on your billboards, it should be dir("My Games" for example)\TmUnitedForever\GameData\Skins\Any\Advertisement. That should be the right place, but it dosn't work for me for some reason... Anyway, hope the information I've provided is helpful.

EDIT: Or take a look here and see if you can find something: http://tutorials.tm-creative.org/

On the billboards do I understand how that works.
But when I upload a track, will the people who download the track also see the pictures in MT?

No... They don't. They don't have the Image in thier installed game, so a tip is to upload an media-pack on another website, Filefront for example, and then write the link at your track-info. (and I would tip you to send a tutorial for newbies how to install, they can get angry otherwise ^^)
