Skins dont show up to other players

Post by StealthMonkey23 » 12 Jun 2008 09:02

I got some really cool skins and i saved them to some countries... i play the free TrackMania Nations Forever... and when i play the game online... i can see the skin but the other players only see the original stadium car. Like in the game i asked a player if he could see the skin.. and he said it looke like i standard Turkish car, which was the country i had the skin saved to. (ITS VERY HARD TO EXPLAINS, if anyone understands what im talking about... PLZ HELP. :( -Thanks :gobananas: UPDATE: im not sharing them, im talking about ingame when I use them others cant see it. :gobananas:

1. Others will only use your card if you've bought "Trackmania United Forever".
2. Once you buy it, make sure to use locators, because downloading via P2P goes much slower.

The most important to share your skins with others is to do some portforwarding.
The port u sure have to forward is 2350.
If you forget this no one can see your custom skin.

Also if you actually overwrote an original skin, your game won't have any way of knowing that.
It'll look different to you, but it'll be the same old skin to the game, since it has the same name.
So, your copy of the game won't feel the need to tell other people's games to download your skin, since they already have all the original skins.
