Ok so first off your going to need something to edit the picture templates with. To do that you can use Paint.net which is free.

http://www.getpaint.net/index.html    (Make sure you read the requirements if you can't get this to work)

 

I'll do this step by step.

 

1. After you install paint.net you will need to download one of the template files. In this case because we are using Paint.net to create the car mural we download the .pdn file which for the car we are working on is

 http://www.thelowridergame.com/templates/impala.pdn

 

2. Open the file with Paint.net. You will notice that there are 2 layers:

 

Ok so Main is your main section that you will be working on. The outline is just there to help you see where on the car the car patterns or car mural will end up.

 

4. So I'm going to create something basic so you get an idea. What you will want to do is make sure Main is selected in the Layers screen, but leave both Main and Outline checked. I'm going to be using the line tool on the Tools bar and setting the color to navy blue.

NOTE: With the new template system MAIN has been renamed to USE THIS

 

 

5. Ok so I am going to draw a line on the side of the car.

 

From there you can create lowrider patterns however you want. Make sure you save it somewhere so that you can work on it again later. Go to the next step if you want to learn how to add murals or skip that and go to step 11.

 

7. Now to add a mural you will need to get the picture you want to add and open it with Paint.net. There are different types of pictures also. So for example I'm going to use a transparrent image. If you where to use a non transparrent image you would see the background of the image on the car(white/black). Once you get confortable with paint.net you can edit pictures that arent transparrent and turn them transparrent. I'm going to use a transparrent png image as a mural on the trunk of my paint job.

 8. So what you want to do is after you open the image in Paint.net that you want to use is go to Edit --> Select All then go to Edit --> Copy. That will place the image in your clipboard so you can add it your paint job. So now if you didn't close your template we worked on before it should be on the top right under the X to close the window. Click on it to bring it back up. If you do not have it there then open it back up from the location you saved it in earlier.

 

9. Ok now that you are back at the original template picture you can go to Edit --> Paste. This will paste the image you wanted as a mural. From there you can drag it to the location you want and resize it or rotate it. To move it just click and drag it around. If you wanted to resize it there are little boxes on each corner of the image. You can click and hold one of those boxes to resize the image. If you hold SHIFT on the keyboard while moving the boxes it will keep the same aspec ratio.To rotate just right click and drag your mouse.

 

10. Now to save your mural. On the layers box that I had you select Main before you will need to uncheck the Outline check box. You will notice that the outline will disappear. Now go to File --> Save As -->  Enter a name and select PNG as the save as type.

 

11. Now that you have the image on your hard drive you can upload it somewhere and use it as a mural. I used ImagShack.us to upload my image. After you upload it you will want to view the image and get the image URL.

Example: http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/7790/templatemural.png

It is very important that you get the direct link to the image. if the link does not lead directly to the image this will not work. The image height and width have to also match.

12. Now go to you mycars page and enter the image link as your mural and your done. Next time you play the game or someone plays against your car the image will be displayed.

 

Here is a screenshot that shows an example of what you can do:

 This is a Basic Tutorial on how to play the Lowrider game for newbies.

 The beginning:  Welcome toThe Lowrider game! As you can see you start with a small grip of cash and a 63'Impala. You can buy other cars, but we will talk about that later.

 Controls: W = Move forward. S = Backwards, A = Turn Left, D = Turn right, Up arrow = Lift Back, Right arrow = 3 Wheel motion right, Left arrow = Left 3 wheel motion, Down arrow = Lower back. I = Lift front wheels, K = Lower front wheels, J = Lift Front left, L = Lift front right. H = Hop front, B = Hop back, V = Hop all four, F = Activate Flipper, 1-4 pump assignment.

     Making Cash: Making money in the game is quite simple, battle a CPU or Computer, Woot Cash!!! No, the easiest way to make cash if you are new is to do hops for 500$ at a time, this is in case you lose, you don't lose all your money. You bet 500 he bets 500, That makes $1,000, when you have 20 grand, goto the lowrider upgrade and paint shop.

   The Lowrider Upgrade and Paint Shop:  At the lowrider upgrade shop, you have this:  Pump one(Amount) and Pump 2, 3, and four. The upgrades can turn your lowrider to a double pump, when up grading, try to upgrade 4 at a time, then spend else on batteries and suspension. Also there is the batteries. Batteries add Power to your hops, the more the batteries, the higher you hop. Batteries are very important, when I first started, I upgraded to max batteries then upgraded the pumps. This way you can dominate the CPU and start doing the $1,000 dollar bets. Suspension, and flipper. Suspension makes it to where your car can raise higher. Suspension is another important thing, you need to hop higher but you are hittin' tha bumpa? Upgrade suspension! The Flipper.You don't need to upgrade the flipper, the flipper just makes your car be able to flip over, kinda useless.The convertible is self explanatory... Pump assignment. Pump assignment is how you make A dancer, pressing 1 raises a wheel, ETC. You can hop rear and side to side using it.

 Paint shop: Paint your car here.

 Car shop: You can have up to 8 cars. The current cars you can buy is the 1963 Chevy Impala, Which is $5,000 , 1997 Lincoln Towncar, Which is $10,000 , 1986 Chevy Caprice, Which is $15,000 , 1979 Cadillac Coupe Deville, Which is $20,000 , 1979 Chevy Monte Carlo, Which is $25,000. Admin Druid is currently woking on a Buick Regal. 

Multilayer Gameplay: In Multiplayer you can Do Hops for fun, or for cars, also there is the newly added Auction area, where you can buy cars.

 Well people, hopefully I helped ya out!

Well first lets start with the title . Tournaments, here is one way to win some game cash if u win the tournament.so far they consist of teams,4,8,16 players. u can pick any of these to be part of yours. there can be single pump or double pump. and you can chose between all the stages stock aka default stage  to stage 3. This is what i do to insure i have a successful tournament and one  that  don't take for ever to fill and have a winner declared.After i decide on if it will  be single or double pump ,and the stage suspension.  and last the amount of players . . next its time 2 offer an amount  for the winner weather it be cash or car or both.now  its time to post it in the tournaments sections. i like 2 use caps for this and a unique name for it to catch someones eye who might would not join it.,now the most important part of having a successful tournament.

i send ims to all the top hoppers in the catagory that i picked for the turney. i look at leader borads in that class and send ims to them also. i use the hoppers that i hop agaisnt  also . most importantly i post a tread about my new turnament. this  is most important . not only will it bring players too your turney it opens dialoge for your next tourney should you chose to do another if your bank can afford it lol.You should check your post and keep it at the top of the forum so it gets alot of attenion and fills up quick. so this should help u get ur first turnament going. and you know how we do it if you been on the game for a while .CERTIFIED RIDAZ  luvs to win them so whatch out have fun .p.s . a little sh__ talikning never hurts to it get cracking up in there lol. p.s. please manage your turney dont be affaid to give the BOOT all up in some ones azz if they dont hop in a timley manner. lol i just luv to say that. hopes this help good luck. hotta then fish grease.
