  1. Thanks wkdsoul.....by leading me to the right place, I noticed the "professional" skinner had updated some items in the tabs folder........not sure what to fix, I just replaced the entire folder with the tabs folder from the 2019 skin I used and it brought my tab text back to life.......it seems I know just enough to be dangerous. Thanks again for your quick response!
  2. Hello Gents, I'm fiddling/merging panels with new skins and I cannot recall what controls the text on the header beneath the titlebar to see the tabs. Please review photo of the titlebar/header ...I have the primary color (white) set for the titlebar with the secondary colored text (green). The header has the secondary color and should have the primary color as the text. I cannot find where I can change the text to primary....I looked in the client object browser (where the control for the header color is)....as well as the header.xml & titlebar.xml. I couldn't find an answer in searching this forum, so I'm breaking to ask for help. Thanks !!
  3. So the link keeps sending me back here.......I presume it must be Groundhogs Day arriving 2 months early, so I'll try again another day....looks great !!
  4. You may have to clear the caches (or deleting the skin caches that shows up in the caches folder) each time you exit....I'm doing that now just in case..... since the ads didn't show up one time when opened the game......
  5. Yes...I took the SD folder out and have had success as well....YAY !!!
  6. I'll give this a try as well... as for your previous post, yes, I delete "fm2019flutskin_dark@1_25x.skc" before I open every the game.........and the ad pack your linked is correct
  7. OK...this isn't perfect.....Te next time I opened the game the static boards were not working........but I remember some other issue like this in the past............it appears I'll need to clear my cache before exiting the game (or delete the saved skin file from the caches folder before opening the game again....file name looks like this since I use the Flut skin - "fm2019flutskin_dark@1_25x.skc"). It's annoying, but it's a work around for now.....hopefully a better solution will arise from someone. You can find the caches file here: Macintosh HD - Users - "User Name" - Library - Application - Sports Interactive - Football Manager 2019 - Caches I use the Sortitoutsi ad board project pack......I've been using it for a decade probably and have made many updates to it myself. I use the Dynamic Adboards from FM Scout for the video ads...with some personal changes as well.
  8. I did not delete anything. "Overwritten the fm.xml file that was already in the ads folder, with the one that came with the adboard pack (and which is also in the 'normal' location)" - This is what I did as well and it worked for me.....
  9. I put it in the "simatchviewer" folder, not the "simatchviewer_uncompressed" folder.....looks like you'll have to un-archive the simatchviewer.fmf to get the folder.
  10. Rivanov - I was able to get the static ads to work by putting the "fm.xml" file in: macintosh HD - Users - "user name" - Library - Application Support - Steam - Steam Apps - common - Football Manager 2019 - data - simatchviewer - ads - "fm.xml" I left the "fm.xml" file in it's original place as well, since I was unsure where the game is reading this from now. (macintosh HD - Users - "user name" - documents - Sports Interactive - Football Manager 2019 - ads - "fm.xml") whatever makes it work....
  11. https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/36764/the-fm18-adboard-patch?page=28#comment_454487 Hey friends....check over on sortitoutsi.....appears to have a solution
  12. Similar fate here (on an iMac)....static adboards don't work.....we cultivate some graphics for years and then FM sabotage's you. Let's hope someone can explain how we can get them to work again. As for the video boards...I don't now where to begin....yes , the default overrides the club video ads when I play....a few club ads are sprinkled in throughout a game. I may rename my team video ads the same as the default ads and at least I should see more of my team ads during a game. Here's to better days my friends!! UPDATE: trying several work around's that have found success....for now anyway
  13. “With an average of 120,000 people playing Football Manager every day, the in-game pitchside advertising offers a perfect route to reach out to football fans in a completely authentic environment,” says Miles Jacobson, Studio Director of Sports Interactive. I don't know how we get out from under this? Maybe we shouldn't sign the EULA ? Should we march the streets and protest? It feels very invasive. I'd pay double the price for the game if they would just leave us alone. Sorry for the rant fella's
  14. I noticed with the Spain fixtures that Friendlies infringe on the opening weekend..........some teams have Friendlies on Sat Aug 17 or Sun 18 forcing the opening game to Tues 8/20 - Wed 8/21....even a Friendly in between week 1 and week 2...........after the first 2 weeks of funky scheduling the schedule is normal. Not the worst thing in the world, but wanted you to know. Oh...and by the way...thank you very much for offering this to us !!!
  15. I'll give this a whirl as well even if I get lost in the Editor when I go in there (a fear of ruining the game as well).....I've been used to changing the colors of the kits with the IGE to change the titlebar / text colors......I guess every year we get a new test of our abilities.....hopefully a patch can revert to allowing the IGE to change the colors......as always, thanks for your skinning wisdom.
  16. To answer the question of this thread: No thank you.....but if enough people want it, why not.....
  17. Lucas...Same result after lowering graphics. * Opened game.....I dropped the graphics to Medium.....closed the game........did NOT clear the Cache folder........same issues returned as noted above. * I closed it out...deleted the Cache folder ....it opened up with normal graphics/start up page.....3d game play works as normal. Also, as asked above....shouldn't there be a 1820 database folder added since the new update? Or did it update into the 1810 folder?
  18. Will this also remove the flashing adboards while in 3D mode and allow of the static adboards to return? thanks...
  19. I have 5 stars for graphics.......so I run high.....I can try lowering it when I get home tonight. As info....to play yesterday, I just kept deleting the Cache folder each time I started the game and it works fine this way......this extra step won't kill me if this is how I have to live, but would obviously still like to start up & play normally. Thanks for the suggestion Lucas !!
  20. Good Morning - I haven't had good issue in years, so I guess I was due. First note: I have uninstalled/reinstalled and issue below has repeated. I have an iMac 27" late 2015 - Version 10.11.6 Since I updated yesterday, the graphics have gone a bit haywire. After reinstalling the game opens fine. Once it is saved and closed out, the restart is where the issues begin. Specifically,: * The start up screen.....it will show Football Mgr 2018 screen....then go black when it should be showing the swirling SI logo, Kick It Out, War Child, etc.....then the load game screen without the manager avatar on a black background. The options to sart game/load game, etc are all listed, so I can enter the game. * The game generated face for my manager is scrambled (like a tv screen gone off the air) * The 3D match view is a black screen with white lines squiggling along- representing the movement of the ball during the highlight I'm reviewing. So I start trial & error: * At first I thought it was skin, so I removed the Andromeda 1.3 skin..... cleared cache reloaded FM skin....worked....until I closed out and reloaded FM skin...issue returned. (same result when adding / removing Flut 1.2 skin) * Then I removed all of the 3rd party graphics....worked initially, but once again when you close out and reload the game the issues returned. * I then loaded the game with FM skin only....saved, closed down, reopened...same issues.......so it's not the 3rd party graphics or the skins. * I then removed the cache folder and preferences folders (that would have naturally occurred when I reinstalled)......it opened fine and 3d highlights in game worked normal. I then closed out and reloaded......issues return......removed the new cache folder, restarted....all is well. So at this point it appears I have an issue with the cache folder that scrambles up a few things in the game when I close out then reload the game. One other note: although the game states it is the 18.2 version when I open it, I do not see an 1820 folder in my database - db file....I do have 1800 & 1810....could that be the issue? Please advise if you have any idea what my issues could be. Thanks
  21. I wish !! Best you can do is disable until first January window.....still, the loan market continues............I spend a lot of time with the in-game editor sending players back to their teams.....
  22. Just an idea....for some of us, the adboards that we've assembled over the years have become quite detailed for each club........I know we have a new adboard project, but that will take awhile to build up to reach the heights of expectation. So for now I'l play with my old adboards around the rings of the stadium and a blank video adboard......
  23. Yes.........Bravo indeed......many pints sent down to your end of the bar!!!!!
  24. Lots of Thanks to Frank The Tank !! (87)
