IMPORTANT FOR MAPPERS & PARTICIPANTS: MAKE MAPSIGNS VISIBLE
How to make mapsigns visible?
Either read the text or check out the tutorial at the bottomn of this page!
Since people still have problems with not having signs at all or not immediately, both MAPPERS and PARTICIPANTS need to follow these steps:
1) Download the TTC Signpack, which can be found here: (http://www.tm-masters.com/ttc/maps)
2) Copy the downloaded zip to your TrackMania folder, which can be found here: (You need to do this TWICE, for TMNF AND ManiaPlanet)
2a) TMNF: C:\Users\*yourusername*\Documents\TrackMania
2b) TM2: C:\Users\*yourusername*\Documents\ManiaPlanet
3) Unzip the archive into that folder (TWICE again) and all signs fall automatically into the right place, make sure to check the folders if it worked:
3a) TMNF: C:\Users\*yourusername*\Documents\TrackMania\Skins\Any\Advertisement
3b) TM2: C:\Users\*yourusername*\Documents\ManiaPlanet\Skins\Any\Advertisement
IMPORTANT IF YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE SIGN PACK IN THE PAST:
Make sure the signs are NOT in any subfolder like it was before (subfolder called TTC) – the signs must now be exactly where it’s stated above under 3a) and 3b)
If both the mapper and you have the TTC signs in the correct folder, you can:
> empty your cache
> disable all up- and download boxes (4!) in the TM settings
… and still you will see ALL TTC mapsigns immediately in both games – like it is supposed to be.
Please do this – it will help you, it only takes a few minutes and it only needs to be done once for both games. We are hoping to see less complaints ingame like “omg no signs”.
