You may remember my thread about my issue with the 2D Classic camera on classic view. Well after digging around and getting alot of support off michaeltmurrayuk (http://community.sigames.com/member.php?u=52118), I managed to find a way to make FM09's 2D view look more like the one in FM08.

Before:http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/9812/2dviewbeforehr4.jpg

After: http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/438/footballmanager20092dvilq7.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

I have got new pics

Be sure to read the "read me" BEFORE making any changes and make sure you are comfortable with the instructions.

This modification is not perfect but I see it as an improvement over the current view. Any comments will be more than welcome.

Enjoy your new Football Manager look :)

P.S: One thing I have noticed is the game is a lot slower than before. If you don't mind notching the speed up a few nothes from centre when watching to get a better speed.

:D, spent ages on it. I'd like to thank the lad at the Skinning Hideout for giving me the tutorial on how to do it. I would give it a go as it is quick and easy and just looks alot better.

Bumpalicious.

Suggestions = get rid of the ad boards and pointless benchs to make it even bigger.

Definitely looking into it, can't find where the ad boards.xml is so am struggling at the moment. If anyone knows where it is could you please let me know.

Has anyone got any information on how to get rid of the adboards as I am struggling to find the right files to edit?

You would be better off cutting the image from 08 and pasting it in. 08's view was perfect.

Well I got rid of the Adboards but it makes no difference to the size of the patch.

Nope, I posted the same picture twice, if you give me a second, I will update it.

Cheers mate, got it. :D Now I am trying to get some of the graphics from FM08 over to FM09. It's a long shot but who knows?

Ok, so looking at it, this view is not much different from Football Manager 2008's. I have managed to recreate FM08's overall look in FM09 but chocked-full of bugs.

does anyone else have this problem that in 2d classic view, the game kind of gets slow, like the pc cant handle the game, but in vista tv its fine. its very annoying because i love 2d but not in vista tv!

Does this modification make any difference to speed Peter-evo?

Like kingjericho, I'm having problems with jerky and stuttering highlights and the slowness of the match highlights (which makes my laptop fan whir like mad).

I know it's a long shot but I thought I would ask anyway. Never had these problems in FM08.
