how do i CREATE a manialink to myself?

Post by Dexu » 08 May 2011 13:55

hello, im now starting to need Coppers because i have a server running (that i have rented) for 5000cc/month.... sooner or later i will be having trouble paying that price... i have created several skins, even mods now, and MANY avatars... i would like to just put them to internet and give you the download link... but i wont do it... i need coppers, so i can sell them... but the little problem is that it says no where HOW TO CREATE a manialink...

now some nerd from the dark hole would come and say: naybe you should look in Mania-Creative Tutorials / ManiaLink.......
sure, but there is a little message that goes like this:

I will not describe, how to create a ManiaLink file and how to register it. Nothing changed in comparison to TMU, except the new PlayerPage, so you can look on other tutorials instead.
so you guys, could someone tell me how to Create and Register a ManiaLink then?

with other words, how do i get a ManiaLink so that it can be seen in the ingame Explorer... (if i dont know wrong, the manialink is somehow connected to your login...

Hi,

With further information posted below i will help you.

Please go to:

https://player.trackmania.com/main.php

Enter your login and password. Then press continue.

Then you will see a screen with on the right side a Explorerbutton almost identical as ingame. Press it.

Then you will see Add Your Manialinks/ManiaCodes Urls.

There is a form with things called:

code: This is your manialink name. so for example Dexu.
Url of manialink: something like www.yoursitehere/manialink/index.php
Type: Manialink is the standard pages. Maniacode is for getting coppers.
Coppers cost is pure for revenues.
Benificial players is for you or friends.

Down the page you have information like:

[1]: Nadeo reserves the right to change or remove some code names. For example, if a popular community website needs it or if the name is not appropriate.
[2]: 5% of the "Coppers cost" goes to Nadeo.
[3]: The amount of coppers granted to "beneficial players" can't be higher than the "Coppers cost".
Example: 100 coppers cost means 95 coppers to be distributed to "beneficial players" other than nadeo.

This might help you and others add or register a manialink.

Code: Select all

URL of manialink = URL of the XML file?

i filled it in like this:

Code: Heku
URL of the XML file: www.heku/manialink/index.php
Type: ManiaLink
Coppers Cost: -
Beneficial players: Nadeo, heku

is this anyhow right?

and can one acc use both ManiaLink and ManiaCode... or how does that stuff work? // i want a manialink that works in explorer (ingame) and you can buy stuff like avatars and stuff there... so should i choose ManiaLink or ManiaCode?

Yes one account can have different manialinks and codes.

to make a different maniacode just use for example heku:donate will lead to a donate page.

but your url might be heku.com or heku.org or anything else because it won't work.

Your index.php should be a manialink and the avatars buying must be with a downloadlink to the avatar so it should be a maniacode.

Code: Select all

okay, i think i now found out something more... the URL of XML i think i got it.. but i would just need some help (i have a webhost thingy (2gb) where i will upload the files etc.) i think im getting it, would just need someone to help... since i lost W1lla. where ever you did go?

i have my 2gb webspace thing on bplaced.com... i did hear that all my downloadable stuff (buy from manialink) should be on a webhost thingy (just like bplaced..).. so i would just need a bit more help...
since my bplaced thingy is http://heku.bplaced.net/ (thene here is some folders and stuff)... so should my URL of XML come from here too? or like how?

PS. if you can and wanna help me, check my msn from my profile, add me.. and then we'll see what we can get done!
