TMN Car Help.

Post by Hebes24 » 13 Oct 2007 21:22

I know how to get a new vehicle ingame, but, How do you get others to see it online? I know that you need a CD Key, but TMN is a free download, so, how do you get a CD key? I don't understand.

Also, once you have said CD key, what do you do?






Any help would be greatly apreciated.

This has been asked loads of times on the forums, but I'm not a jerk.

a) you need to purchase another game (TMO, TMS, or TMU)

b) you need to input the Multiplayer Key that comes with that game into the 'authenticate your account' link on the TMN website: http://www.trackmanianations.com

c) you'll need to make sure ports 2350 and 3450 on your computer's firewall and/or your router are open, so that your car will download to other players.

:!: yes that is right

if u dont do a) and b) u just need wait longer and nothing is disabled in TMN
so just wait and dont change car (paint it or change model) , try it with some smaller car (size to 500kB)

or buy TMU :wink: there shows cars fast like hell :3

T.O.M., you are wrong with your 'correction' of a and b, as I've been playing TMN for almost a year now and only when I bought TMS in January 2007 and authenticated my account did people begin to see my car.

You can ask anybody this, but P2P is disabled on TMN by default, and you need a miltuplayer key from another TM game to activate the P2P (proving you own another TM game, basically.)

I also have two TMN accounts, the second of which has no authentication, and the car does not load for other players on that account; only I can see the car.

The car I use is 350KB.

Also I would like to note for you that maybe there was a bug in the first release of TMN; I recall a topic where people disocvered using the TMN multiplayer key would actually authenticate TMN, which Nadeo were quick to fix.
