* Change your carhorn:
Create a backup of the car you're racing, and replace horn.wav with a different horn.wav

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

* Change your engine sound:
Create a backup of the car you're racing, and add:

1. EngineRev.ogg
2. EngineRev2.ogg
3. EngineIdle.ogg
4. EngineLow.ogg
5. EngineMid.ogg
6. EngineFast.ogg

( Nominal bitrate : 96 kbps, Channels : 2, Sampling rate: 44100 Hz should work)

* Change your car:

* Add your own avatar:
1. Open a program that deals with the .targa format (like psp or photoshop)
2. Create and draw a new image, size 128*128
3. Feel free to use transperancy, because it works with .tga
4. Save your file and open tmlauncher
5. Go to help>custom data>avatar and import your .tga image

When you are limited paint, you can save your image in .jpeg. Quality of the file might be worse, and transperancy does not work

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

* Change your nickname
Open hthe file "text colors - documentation.txt" in the tm:nations folder and read it. After this go ingame>profile options, there you can change your nickname (don't change your login!)

* Tips to load the game faster
1. go to \gamedata\introslides and remove the 3 files. After 'loading please wait' you will go to the menu.
2. delete all the files in GameData\ExitSlides to exit faster
3. open the launcher and go to cofigure\advanced\network uncheck 'check internet connection' (you will recieve no internet data upon loading the game)

num1 - num3 : change view
num * : HUD on/off
c : chatlog on/off
`~ key shows or hides names on cars when playing online

Coloring and formatting tags
Hi all.
Most of you old TM players knows how to use color tags, but for those that doesnt know, this is a great way to learn Smile
First off, lets look at a basic tag:
$i
Every tag, no matter color or formatting, has a dollar sign in front of them, all the tags applies to the text right of the dollar sign.
Formatting tags has 8 different functions:
$i: italic
$s: shadowed
$w: wide
$n: narrow
$m: normal
$g: default color
$z: reset all
$t: Changes the text to capitals
$$: Writes a dollarsign

Examples:

Input: $iTrackmania$$---output: Trackmania$
Input: $wChicken---------output: c h i c k e n


Color coding
Color codes are not that hard to use Smile
Don't worry, you'll understand Wink

ok, first, you need to know hex (Hexadecimal).
Hex is a value system where you can go over 10 using one number/letter.
Here are the values for all the hex numbers:
Code:

HEX-----VALUE
0         0
1         1
2         2
3         3
4         4
5         5
6         6
7         7
8         8
9         9
a         10
b         11
c         12
d         13
e         14
f         15


Thats the numerical system.
lets have a look at a normal color code:

$RGB

As you can see, you have a dollar sign here too.
RGB, red, green and blue.
Its this simple:
Replace the R with the amount of red you want in the color using hex numbers.
Replace the G with the amount of green you want in the color using hex numbers.
Replace the B with the amount of blue you want in the color using hex numbers.

F is the most, and 0 is the least.
The closer to 0, the darker the color gets.
The closer to F, the brighter the color gets.

Examples:

Input: $f00Trackmania-------output: Trackmania
Input: $d00Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $900Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $600Trackmania------output: Trackmania
Input: $fa0BLaHiTis----------output: BLaHiTis
Input: $0ffNADEO------------output: NADEO

Gradient Example:

Input: $0a0H$0b0e$0c0l$0d0l$0e0o-----output: Hello

You can also mix color tags with formatting tags:

Input: $i$d00Trackmania----output: Trackmania
Input: $00fTrack$imania----output: Trackmania

Thats about it! Smile
Hope you got some more knowledge throughout this.
If you feel this is hard to learn, you can check out trackmania custom color tool Wink
