[HowTo]ManiaSpace

Post by SaTaNaSDiaBoLo » 02 Sep 2008 13:50

Q:What is Maniaspace?
Maniaspace is a manialink developed for the community to help trackbuilders who want to share their creations on a manialink, but who don't want/or don't know how to make one.

Q:Who can access to this manialink?
Everyone who has bought Trackmania United, and has installed the Forever patch.

Q:How to Access to Maniaspace?
There is 3 ways to access to Maniaspace.
- The first way is made for people who want to surf on Maniaspace, download the most recent tracks, the most downloaded tracks, or find an author. For those people they just have to type [url=tmtp:///:maniaspace]maniaspace[/url]. You can also type "maniaspace" in the ingame manialink browser.
- The second is made for members who want to access directly on their personal space to upload tracks, edit the comment of their tracks or delete tracks. The link to access to this page is [url=tmtp:///:maniaspace:admin]maniaspace:admin[/url]
- Thirdly, by clicking on a link shared by a member on maniaspace.
Example: [url]tmtp:///:maniaspace?user=satanasdiabolo[/url]. My ingame login is satanasdiabolo so it's my login after user. If your login is bean, the link to access to your page will be tmtp:///:maniaspace?user=bean

Q:Can I have some coppers with Maniaspace?
Yes, you can get coppers by registering your tracks on Maniaspace and by uploading your replays. Each track downloaded will give you 9 coppers. Each replay downloaded will give you 4 coppers.

Q:Can I change the cost of my tracks or the repartition?
No, this is not possible, the costs are fixed.

Q:How to become a member of Maniaspace?
First click on the Add my tracks button like on this screen:

Image

Then click on continue on the text box like this:

Image

And if everything is fine, you should have this:

Image

Q: How to upload a track?
The upload of a track costs 20 coppers, it can sound like a little expensive at first, but if 3 players download your tracks you will win 27 coppers.

To upload a track, click on the "upload" button.

Image

Then Select your tracks.
Caution: You should be the author of the selected tracks, if the author name of your tracks is different from yours, the upload will failed.

Image

Finally click on Upload and pay 20 coppers.

Image

Q:How to Upload a replay on Maniaspace?
First select a track in maniaspace (of course you have to register a replay of the selected track), then click on the button squared on the screen above, and select your replay.

Image

Then click on "upload", this last action is billed 10 coppers.

Image

Q:How many replays can I upload?
You can upload all the replays you want. If the last replay uploaded is not better than the previous one, this won't be registered.
If there are 10 replays on a track, you can't upload a new replay except if you've made a better score than a player in the board.

It's not a bug. It's just that you can't buy your own tracks.

Hey there, I like this very very much ^^
It really is a great idea :mrgreen:
Although I have a problem. I always build my tracks on the login ''NLpwf''
but my TMU account is on metalyan666. So I cant upload my tracks without changing em :(
Is there any way I could upload the tracks from my other login ?
Who am I ? 0,o

no, sorry, you can upload your tracks if you save them with your current login, then send them on ManiaSpace but I don't think there is an other way. Except buying a second key for you other login

it states in the FAQ section that this is only for people with TMUnited.
what about those of us that have TMNations? is there a way for me to upload some of my tracks? the track editor was what got me into this game. i enjoy building as much or more than the driving.and the driving is crazy fun!

Extremely well done Satanas! :thumbsup: I am posting this information to the USA Zone! :3 I only wish I had known about this sooner... but oh well, c'est la guerre... Anyways, glad to know about it now! :lol: One thing though, I uploaded 2 tracks, and then started to upload replays of those tracks, and got a "12002 error", couldn't find manialink, or couldnt upload replay... :grmblz: they are valid replays of my tracks, and I have paid the 10 coppers twice now to upload the same replay, will it eventually show up there or is something wrong? :? [manialink=]tmtp:///:maniaspace?user=twoeagles]My Maps on ManiaSpace[/manialink] I'm too "copper poor" to keep paying for this! :1

P.S. Luv the hat, Satanas! :roflol: :thumbsup:
