There's two ways to create a Clublink: automatically from your player page, or manually by editing an XML file.
From the player page
To create a clublink, connect to your player page (https://player.maniaplanet.com), select 'Community' and click on 'Teams'.
If you do not have a team yet, it is a good time to create one!
To do so, click on 'Create a team' and follow the instructions.
Please note that you have to host the images yourself.
The format for both emblem and logos images is 512x512 DDS DXT1 (no alpha) with mipmaps.
Once you belong to a team, its name should be visible on the bottom of the 'teams' page (https://player.maniaplanet.com/teams/).
Click on your team, then click on 'Clublink' on the right.
Copy the link given in the page (it starts with 'http://maniamatch.maniaplanet.com/club-link'). Please be sure you have copied the entire link: it is very long, and your browser may hide its end.
Now start Maniaplanet, connect with your account and click on the game you want to set (e.g. Shootmania Storm).
Go to your profile ('Profile' on the left), and paste the Clublink in the 'clublink' field.
Your Clublink is now set!
When you play team modes (e.g. Elite or Combo in ShootMania Storm), the game will be setup with your colors and visuals if the server allows it.
From an XML file
You can also create and host your own Clublink file. It will let you have a bit more control on its content. Once you have edited the XML file, you just have to host it somewhere on the web along with the various resources (emblems, logo, avatars, sponsors) and paste the link inside your profile (see above for more details).
