FM12 Stadium Background project (1920x1080, 1920x1200 or 1600x1200)

Recommended Posts

Wow, only just seen this thread - very impressed!

I know everyone is keen to have their preferred leagues included but is there any chance of you doing more South American leagues?

Dunno what's happening mate, Geordie hasn't replied to this thread in a while but has been active in the forum the last few days so don't know if there will be any more updates.

Would be nice to know either way though because if not I'll add Jon's to what's already in this pack so I have more backgrounds in game.

Stadium backgrounds are great. Using them now. However there is a slight problem. Can anyone advice me how to change the highlight colour of the attribute. For example if i choose a particular role of a player's position, the highlighted attributes for that role couldnt be seen properly as it clashes with the dark background. Im using base dark Bg skin. My overlays are 80%.

Try this overlay hoddle1204.........

I use it with BG skin and it's perfect.

JoeyJoe use the 16:9 ones, they should work fine. If they look stretched Geordie told me to change the top padding to 0. You would need to ask the skin maker where to find this as I think its in a different place depending on the skin.

Hello Geordie. Love these backgrounds, thanks a load for all your work. Really makes a difference to game for me. Feel guilty for asking; but are you planning on doing French Ligue 2 in the future?

I play on a MAC, and when I download the pack they come to me as .rar files which I can't open. And they don't work when I place them in the backgrounds folder. Yet I know its the right place because when I tested an older background pack a I had, they worked. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!

Thanks for the Norwegian pack, however you got one wrong picture, as I could see. The Stabæk homeground has changed from Telenor Arena as you have on the screenshot, they have moved back to Nadderud Stadion.

Cheers Chicha, added to first post.

MatankA you might want to mention that in the data forum because there's no mention of a stadium move in the editor. Anyways I'll sort it out soon.

I've finally got my hands on a new (surprisingly cheap) 27" monitor so I'll probably be working on some more packs in the near future Daz.

I've been working on something massive (sporadically) since January and once this job I took on to see me through the winter ends in 3 weeks time and I get to go back to picking and choosing my own hours I'll be able to crack on with it fully. Give me a month or three (for yet to be opened stadia) and hopefully it'll be worth the wait.

Will these for FM13 have just the stadium on matchday or will they be like this with 4 pictures on matchday as well?

Sorry mate, the 4 pics will be on the match screen too. I plan on going really deep into each nation and the pics just aren't out there to do that with a single photo in HD yet (and I hate resizing up to a blur) but they are available in smaller sizes.

Compromise time, I'll put these on the squad screen and a single HD photo on the matchday screen wherever possible. When I can't find a suitable hi-res image for the matchday I'll stick one of the four picture ones in there just so you know what the stadium you're playing in looks like without giving you a headache from the lost pixels of using a re-sized up shot. Then if a hi-res pic does become available I'll replace the four photo ones in an update.

In fact scrap that I've seen sense, just tried to make some and got about 4 done in 2 hours so it'll be business as usual for FM13. Highest quality picture I can find plastered on the screen, I might keep the template for the above reason though and use it if desperate.

What about an outside stadium view for the Club View screen and a in stadium view for matchdays.

More work though.....its something I have been thinking of doing for a while now.

Something like this......

<record from="1099" to="graphics/pictures/club/1099/background"/>

If you want to collect the pics I'll see about working them into the packs for the club overview screen, I don't really have the time to do them myself. I've fallen behind schedule by about a month after this latest bright idea, I really should stand back and think about it before deleting my work when I get these bright ideas in my head. Thankfully the location of the pics are still fresh in the mind so shouldn't take as long to get them back as it did to find them in the first place.

I'll help out if your going to struggle single handedly. All worth it because the stadiums you have done this year are top class, easily the best made for any FM.

Are you two members at sortitoutsi btw, it's just the PM system over there is a lot better for multiple person conversations. Kind of like a private topic rather than the individual messages over here. If you are tell me your usernames and I'll send you a PM.

Does the game slow down a lot if you install this stadium pack? Pics look great and things like these add to the game.

To my knowledge, in general day to day processing in game, no. It only slows the game down when you set up a new game, i.e it takes longer to generate the database.

Not for FM12 unfortunately because a few teams are moving into new stadiums in the summer and I've found and posted some data issues that'll hopefully be fixed by the time FM13 comes out.

I'm not too bothered what you decide on geordie because I'll probably just edit the config file to show just the coloured images on a matchday anyway mate.

I probably won't be doing it anyway I've made too many normal ones now it'd end up feeling like I've started again adding b and w to them all now, just throwing around ideas for down the line really.
