Trackmania carpark

Post by zipperrulez » 26 Jan 2009 00:14

i am new to this game, and i dont understand the carpark very well.
what game are the cars for there?
TMU TMUF TMF TMUF TM TMS...?
i downloaded 10 cars and only one of them worked on TMF, but also one of the cars worked on the original TM, so i guess its for all TM's.
if that is true, how can i tell what cars are compatible with what game?
thanks,
_________

Are you putting the cars in the right folder?
And you give an example which car you've tried that doesn't work in TMF (which I assume you mean TMNF)
TM name: wolf68k
Display name: Wolf68k (the 8 is actually white ingame, kinda hard to do here)

i tried in TMF and got a dodge viper to work correctly, i am putting the cars into the 'stadium car' folder located here:
C:\Program Files\TrackMania Nations ESWC\GameData\Skins\Vehicles\StadiumCar

here is a link to the viper that worked:

cars in the following links did not work, they appear in the car selection, but when i click on them i get an error and the game crashes

http://www.trackmania-carpark.com/skin.php?id=6154

EDIT: and why do you assume im talking about tmnf?

Sorry I just assumed that because I have no idea what TMF stands for. I've only seen it as TM, TMS, TMU, TMUF and TMNF

This is just a guess and pardon me if I'm wrong. I've only really played TMNF and TMUF (I'm not gonna count the TMS demo).
I know that with UF and NF there is a folder in My Documents for TM and it's there that you would put the cars into.
My Documents\TrackMania\Skins\Vehicles\CarCommon
Now if the car is using the StadiumCar model then it would be My Documents\TrackMania\Skins\Vehicles\StadiumCar but then I guess there's no reason why you can't have them in either folder.

I just tried 2 of the cars you said you had problems with. No problems in TMUF. It did seem to take a little longer to load in the selection screen, well at least the first time.

Sorry if it doesn't help, I'm just guessing. Maybe a problem with your graphics card or the game itself not liking something about how those models were made. Not that I expect this to work, but stranger things have been known to happen do a system cleaning; a registry cleaner, chkdsk and follow that with a good defrag. It might not help any but it sure can't hurt, and I have seen doing just a defrag help out in more ways than just defragging the files.

As far as I know.. The cars on Carpark are now all for United Forever.
For older models for TMN, TMS and TMO have a look over this site>> http://trackmania.southmoon.net/cars/

EDIT: and TMF isnt a game... 'TrackMania Nations Forever' or 'TrackMania United Forever'?

TMF is an abbreviation for the Forever generation in the TrackMania series, ie. everything that's common to both TMNF and TMUF (such as the technology, graphics, dedicated server, etc).

Well that's where he confused me. He starts of mentioning U and UF (even listed it twice) and it didn't seem to have a problems with those so I thought it mean NF but I was still wrong.
