    My league is having a problem with the auto skin download function. This problem has only arisen because of having multiple files associated with one car.
    Our cars all have 4 files associated with it. When the skin download occurs it renames the file for the car. For example my car is STATICalt.dds then becomes something like _32293_STATICalt.dds.

    When that happens the other files associated with the car no longer match. For them to work the files have to have the same base name.

    The honda has files for the main car. namealt.dds
    for rims namealtEXTRA8.dds
    for outside windows namealtWINDOWSOUT.dds
    and for Windshield in+out we are only using out namealtWINDSHIELDOUT.dds

    You can manually fix this by renaming the files with the number that the server assigns for the skin but it's a hassle when there are a lot of cars. And anyone that drops in as a new member won't get all the files.

    Also do the names for the other three files need to be changed to be under 9 charachters?

    Is there any way to fix this so that the server will handle all the files together and not rename just the base skin?
    Is it possible to drop all the files in a folder within the car?

    Thanks for any help given :)

    Maybe packaging each set of files into a MAS file?
    Just guessing, I don't know if this will be compatible with autodownloads

    Yes, MAS them up with MAS2.exe.
    Use same file name as your skin, STATICalt.mas

    Another wild guess, what happens when you add those skins to the server itself? would it still be renaming?

    cool thanks. Got it to work. The level 1 file compression brings it down to half the size which is nice for quicker skin transfers.
