Yes I did, initially it seemed to have worked, but not really 100%. So I tried a different approach. Cleaned cache, race for a 1/2 hour on my server with other racers. Checked my cache folder and 'some' cars were in the cache folder (so they do download) . But in-game they still showed grey. As for avatars, the only ones that I found in my cache were 512x512 png files, which I could see in-game, others well the normal black and white chessboard.

Could it be compatibility issues ? An example of a car that does show (and i don't have it anywhere in my maniaplanet folders) is the Lada Taxi . ( guess it's this one http://www.maniapark.com/ressource.php?id=451 ) I asked the player if he uses a locator and he said no. So he downloaded it and it was P2P me no problems.

Then I tried another player with a Ferrari.. we both put the same car into our custom car folders and still I could not see his skin. But the car is Canyon compatible.

Hope this info helps a bit... if more tests are needed I'm willing to help :3
