The FM10 Adboard project

Recommended Posts

Excellent download, real quality. Just one question - the 2009 project had a number of competitions not included with this one, as well as a lot of club specific packs. Do you have any plans to re-introduce these?

There are plans to introduce these, at the end of the month there will be an update featuring club specific adboards so far 39 sets have been made. I expect there to be around 50 by the end of the month.

At the end of January a further update will be out focusing on Lower League's, Cup's and International teams.

There will be updates to this pack produced every month ;)

There are many Chinese characters club specific adboards in EPL in real life, like Chelsea, Arsenal, Man Utd, can you add these adboards to the pack?

Hi guys - I've been trying to find an answer in the guides but can't. There seems to be two files at the end that contain graphics... do i extract them both to my created graphics file in my documents?

Me too. Not in my first season (in UK Div 1), but I do in the second (Championship).

Strange thing is that I didn't get this with the FM09 Adboard pack before I replaced it with the FM10 version.

I've also started getting only the "Just Eat" adboards now - they are showing for all league matches as far as I've seen so far

Regarding the just eat adboards, there adboards Sports Interactive have added into the game, there will be a fix in the next patch which will stop these from showing up ;)

The next patch should be out at some point next week

So, basically over-write the original files with the new ones? I've followed the instructions, but the new adboards are not appearing. Any ideas?

I can confirm that the ust Eat adboards also appear in my game rabcp. And I know I've done all the steps right as the new adboards appear for teams etc. I'm playing in Blue Square North though so...

Must say I'm very impressed with these. Any plans to create some for the Cypriot league? If not, is it possible for me to make the ones for the Greek Superleague also appear in matches in the Cypriot league? Keep up the good work.

If I want to delete some league ads which i don't need, do I need to edit xml file? or just delete the folder?

For those asking about their english championsip games, that league isnt included.

It's easy enough to add if you want to do it yourself:

1. Open fm.xml from the "ads" folder using a decent text editor. (in the SI area of 'my documents')

2. Do a search for 'english' and you'll come to the section for the english premier league (league ID 11)

3. Copy the whole list for the premier league adds and paste them right below, then change the league id to 12.

ie <list id="11"> becomes <list id="12"> at the top of the list.

4. Save the file and your all set.

Also to the OP, you have used the wrong ID number for the english FA cup it should be 109202.

And there is no listing for the English league cup ID 1301427

Cheers,

M

I was really looking forward to getting these in game....unfortunately I've now messed up EVERYTHING.

You say on the instructions to "Overwrite" the Sports Interactive folder..... in doing so I've lost ALL my graphics and ALL my saved game info - I have tried "Undo" but it hasn't brought back my old SI folder and it's not in the trash either.... to say I'm angry would be an understatement. I'm trying to recover it all now, but I assumed it would merge the folders. Perhaps you need to put a warning on the instructions...?

Maybe it is me being stupid, but I followed everything to the letter and trusted it would work....

If I can't get my saved game back this has effectively stopped me playing the game as I had invested so much time to it I would be too depressed to start over.

Did you delete your SI folder or something? There is nothing in this zip that will have any effect on your save games.

If you just unzip a file it will add to a folder it will not replace it (ie it will not remove files), so you must have done something to the files/folder for the saves to be gone.

But in any case you broke the cardinal rule of using any mods .... ALWAYS backup your files ;)

Restore point?

I'm using a Mac and had my external drive (which houses Time Machine) off since 6th November.....

Been meaning to launch it recently - my own fault really, but my suggestion for a warning stands valid.

Maybe it's different with the Mac file structure, it simply replaced my old SI folder with a new (empty except ads) one.

It is always advised to backup anything you may be overwriting.

Yes, perhaps a more general warning as a sticky perhaps so users do not get confused and are more prepared should they do something wrong or follow bad instructions.

Ahh the Mac attack ... sorry hadn't realized you were using a Mac. Indeed Macs repalce folders ... this warning from another website I found:

IMPORTANT: Though I am not familiar with the Macintosh system, I have been told that if you are using a Mac, you must NOT allow overwriting as it will replace everything in the folders with the new folders. I can only suggest that Mac users install into a temporary folder and then move the files by hand or by whatever other method they may have learned for handling zip files.

Sorry bud :(

Sorry iv'e not been around to answer any questions but this is exam time for me so I have'nt had much free time.

In regards to the 'just eat' adboards it looks like there are hard coded into the game by SI however they only effect the defult ads and not the competition/club specific ads

Must say I'm very impressed with these. Any plans to create some for the Cypriot league? If not, is it possible for me to make the ones for the Greek Superleague also appear in matches in the Cypriot league? Keep up the good work.

If you can get me some links to pictures of Cypriot adboards then I can make them :) it is also possible to use the greek ones by using myros's guide

1. Open fm.xml from the "ads" folder using a decent text editor. (in the SI area of 'my documents')

2. Do a search for 'greek' and you'll come to the section for the greek super league

3. Copy the whole list for the suoer league adds and paste them right below, then change the league id to the id of the Cypriot league.

ie <list id="11"> becomes <list id="12"> at the top of the list.

4. Save the file and your all set.

Also to the OP, you have used the wrong ID number for the english FA cup it should be 109202.

Thanks for brining this to my attention, it will be corrected with the next patch, there has been no English League cup adboards made yet which is wise there is no listing. However adboards for the English league cup will be in the next patch

Admittedly I am not familiar with Apple mac's and assumed it would handle merging folders the same as a pc does, seems really daft that it doesn’t, sorry you have lost all your files, I genuinely had no idea this would happen

I just installed this pack the other day, and its great!

But does the adboards only work for your own home games? It was fine when i was in the Championship home and away the adboards were Coca Cola and in the FA Cup i had Fa Cup Ad boards.

But since i have been in the Premier League only my adboards have the Premier league/sky sports hd ads every game. Some away games have the exact same ad boards that i had in the Championship.(Coca Cola ads)

Plus i played at home in the Carling Cup and the adboards were just the same as the Championship adboards. No carling adboards or anything.

Never used Ad boards before, so not sure if it is meant to be like this or if i have installed them wrong?

Great pack though,adds much more realism to the Match Day. Cheers

Yeah, i keep meaning to ask why in the FM10 pack do you only have adboards display in home games or some away games in the league? For instance it's fine if you play at home in the EPL but if you play say away at a smaller team like Blackburn you just get the default boards (but not specific to any league). Is it now the case they only display if there are personalised boards for certain clubs?

I liked it better in the 09 pack were you have the same league specific boards regardless if who you played in a certain leauge but in the FM10 project it seems that the boards are specific to clubs rather than specific to leagues.

ive never downloaded adboards before so ive got a couple of questions.

1) It says download them to your documents. Is this literally in my documents or in the FM10 folder in my documents?

2) Do these work in 2d view?

Afer searching through the pack, i have noticed the teams who i play who use the default adboards have their own Default Team Ad boards. Which don't work in the game.

97719758.jpg

When playing against these teams it always use's the default adboards, is there a config file missing or anything? I am playing as Arsenal and it keeps using the default adboards when i play at home & not the adboards in the Arsenal folder in that image.

I just deleted the file 'Arsenal' from there as a test and reloaded images on confirm in the game, and now my adboards at home are the Premier League adboards. :thup:

But i like the clubs own personal adboards like Norwich Citys green adboards, but for some reason they are not working. The game keeps using the default adboards for these teams ...

Yeah for this pack but is there anyway to put newcastle in the XML ? Surely if leeds and norwich are in then newcastle are able to be put in.

No offence intended but highly disappointed.

I can see what you were going for with the 'new texture' but it really does ruin them. They're so dark it just looks like a thick black line running around the pitch. Is there an update/alternative download without the new texture?

Same here, far too dark imo. In 2D view they just look like very dark coloured border around the pitch. Not too bad in 3D but still not as good as the older versions.
