I recently downloaded the game. I set it up correctly, used nglide and everything is working perfectly fine. Except that if I attempt to add in a new truck or track in Cowpod, it doesn’t do that. The save button doesn’t work. Any help?

Had the same problem before, you need to set Cowpod's compatibility mode to XP or whatever operating system of your choice. (preferably XP.)

Alright, I figured out why Cowpod wasn't working. My Pod.INI file was set to read-only. However, the trucks and tracks aren't appearing in the game, even if they are in Pod.INI.

First question: Are you using cowpod with the latest community beta version? If you are, my apologies but cowpod has not been updated to work with it so it will always default to 30 pods and if you try to add a higher number it won't let you.

If that is not the case... hmmm.

I personally have always preferred podini, a more simple program but it works no matter the game version or windows version.

Alright then. I’m using Windows 7 so I’ll try Podini.

Still not working. Thinking of reinstalling the game.

I assume you are using either the official patch or the community beta patches right? (the beta patches include the official patch).

Alright, I'll explain the whole thing: I got the game from this site, the full one. I tried installing the patch, but nothing would happen. It wouldn't install. I'm not using any patch. Maybe if I install the official patch it will work, right?

That's why the addons don't work. You need at least the official patch for it to work. Though if you just install the community patch (http://mtm2.com/MTM2/Utilities/CommPatc ... tches.html) then it will have the official patch already included.

I installed the Community Patch. I can finally add my own trucks and tracks into the game. Thanks man. :)

Also yeah, Cowpod's trash. Podini is much better for sure.
