Need help with downloading models.

Post by Noodleracer » 06 May 2008 17:50

Ok. So i have TMU and i want to get models of the carark site but i cant find the right folder. I have been told its
TMU/Game Data/Skins/Vehicles/Carcommon
I have all those folders.....except the car common. Is this the right place to put it or is it somewhere else and if it is...whats wrong? xD

If you don't have an CarCommon folder, just create one. I think it is creating itself when you are downloading models via Manialink, but when you are downloading models the first time from internet instead of Manialinks, you have to do it "the hard way" (create a folder) :wink:

Right folder? If you are using TMUF then the base-folder are called just TrackMania, or ifyou use TMU the folder is called TrackMania United. If it is right, test to add a vehicle to any of the existing folders (American, BayCar, CoastCar, Rally, SnowCar, SportCar, StadiumCar). If these dosen't exist... well, they do.

Hey, where did Gamedata come from? You aren't in My documents/Trackmania, right? Go to that location, and see if you find better there.

this was my solution when i was only on TMN-f
go in the painter save a car with the name you want, go take a look in your documents, the zip is there, now place any car you want in that dir. and they will all show up in the gamelist at the end
