New to the Game, Need Help Figuring out Skins

Postby HOBOS CAN FLY » Mon Mar 19, 2018 3:10 pm

I am very new to Mx Sim, and I've had it for about a week now. I am getting very confused when I look up tutorials on how to install skins and tracks due to the fact that some people tell you to use your personal folder, and others tell you to use your x(86) folder. I have put my tracks and skins in my x(86) folder and they seem to work fine, but I want to know if that's the wrong way of doing it, and if it may come back to bite me later. I am also confused about how to install things like boots, goggles, etc. where I can't find any tutorials. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read and respond.

You should use the install / program files folder for most stuff. The only exception is tracks you want to use the built in editor on. The game can't write to the program files folder so in that case you need to use the personal / localappdata folder so the game can save its changes.

Back when I first got the game, I used my x86 folder to put all my skins and tracks in, but it got all messy. When I bought a new computer I switched to the Personal Folder and I gotta say I like it more. It keeps the game itself and all the mods seperated. In the end it's up to you and your preferrance ;)
