Well, the boxed set finally arrived, and is installed on the old PC...well, gentlemen, now it's time to let me know what bells and whistles need to go along with it..I've read about patches, maps, tanks et al... for a couple of months..now I guess I need to figure out where and when to get all of them..not to mention how to start playing along with the rest of you. Hopefully, other threads aside, playing is what we'll be doing..right???

Regarding the patches..is there any "glitches" with any of them??? Seeing as how I just barely know how to turn this unit on and off, I don't wnt to end up getting too deep...unless, of course ( as it looks already), help is just a monitor away!!

There can be problems with the 1.6.0 and the config file, but since 1.5.9 is compatible and i cant tell the diff myself so i stick with that.

btw: www.dmf.filetap.com (treadmarks page for news, tournaments, competitions, ladder and mod tools )

OK, let's go one better..the version I seem to have would be 1.5..so I need to do double patch??--1.55 to 1.59, and then up to 1.6, or just leave it at 1.59??

I think you can go straight to 1.6?

"hi

i've downloaded lots of different patches from different web sites

All the above was from a different thread I saw elsewhere..does this happen all the time?? That's my concern regarding 1.6

Nope, I had no problem. And I've installed TM1.5 and updated to 1.6 on 3 different computers. I didn't even have to get the new config file.

The only real advantage of 1.6.0 over 1.5.9 is that 1.6.0 will accept the copy protection of both 1.0 and 1.5 CD's.

As another note, I have yet to be able to get my desktop at home to upgrade to 1.6. However, a clean install of TM doesn't seem to have any problems upgrading. I just don't have the HD space on my desktop at home to do that...I'll copy off my personal desktop whenever I get home.

Well. went straight to 1.6, and no probs..then went straight to a server, and got my butt mutilated. Was fun, though. Thanks for the tip..next are the maps tanks and weapons add-ons. Should be a busy week, considering I should be sleeping during the day!!..do the dlds go into a file automatically, or do I need to create one?

this was the answer I gave about maps but since it also applies to mods in general
Teulk; if the zip files for the maps follows our usual custom(so far they all have), then unzip/extract them to your main tread marks folder and everything will end up where it supposed to(same thing applies to weapon/tank/flag mods as well)

If you have WinZip, you should be able to see if the files will unzip to which subdirectories in the right column.

If the file directories start with Addons/ you can unzip to the main TM directory.

If they don't start with that, you'll need to unzip them to their /Addons/ specific directory. Tanks go into /Addons/Entities/Race Tank. Maps go into /Addons/Maps. Weapons go into /Addons/Entities/Weapon.

Most zippacks should already be set to go. But you should double check them just to make sure.

1.55 to 1.6 never worked on my computer either! maybe depends on the OS?? dunno!
but 1.55 > 1.59 > move config file out of folder > 1.6 > move config file back always works for moi!!
