Still not working, this is really annoying me now how it is so hard to add a few simple objects to a title pack. I thought this would be relatively easy. I tried the manual way of 1 by 1 adding the objects, but maniaplanet just crashes when i place the blocks in the editor.

Any ideas?

the folder-way works fine, i use it in my title packs as well
especially the size of the .gbx file should tell you that all the files have been included
which blocks does the 'missing blocks' error list? all of yours or a few?
maybe the map has an additional block on it which isn't included in the title pack, it might make sense to try it with a map that has only a single custom block

    All of the blocks :s

    edit:

    Ah I seemed to have fixed it, apparently I had objects which were stadium only, and I was placing them in Items\ not Items\Stadium.

    Moving all the blocks here and then updating the .xml fixed it :P

    Hey I have another question, I have seen some title packs with animated station images - did they just use a .bik for the PackImage instead of a jpg?

    Hi, at the moment at eXpansion we get the title name from the dedicated server and use it in order to decide whatever we should load some plugins or not.
    It would have been good if we could have the base name to base our decision on but we don't. so it would be nice if title packs contained the TM keyword in their Packaging name so that we can make the correct decision.

    I would like to get the opinon of you guys that actually create those titles as I have nearly no knowledge on the subject.

    Oliverde, you could solve this by reading it from the Mapobject of the current map (the environment).
