Hi, Stadium backgrounds still don't appear during the game to my knowledge. This would be down to the skin maker, the background pack loads the images into the games memory. Where they are displayed is then down to the skin.

I think I made a mess of the alternative config files which is why they don't work. I was working on the spreadsheet and made some changes... I need to fix them. I'll try to get it fixed tomorrow.

I will certainly give it a crack :)

It might not be straightforward as I am often reliant on googling which can be trickier where the language structure is removed from English. Some nations can surprise though, for instance I found the South American leagues much easier than I expected even in the smaller nations.

Ha, I was really struggling for images of Croatian clubs. Was your picture on Panoramio? It's where I get a lot of non-English pics from as I can get them from geolocation.

Hope you don't mind me appropriating the image?

Two questions:

Does this work on FM2015?

Where can I grab those competition/honours logos from? I'm using Metallic and wouldn't mind replacing their cup logos for the ones you're using?

Yeah, works with 2015.

The logos are the metallic logos megapack I think it's called. I seem to remember it is available in this forum. If not it will be on sortitoutsi.net (I only really go on these two sites).

Tried to download, but stopped with about 40 minutes left saying couldn't write file. On mac.

Any ideas?

Not sure, I'll PM you a dropbox link which should work (I would use this as standard but there is a 10GB download limit).

Does anyone know how to the the image to appear behind the text?

I can get the pics into the facilities panel in the club overview screen but it just lands on top of the text info 'stadium name etc'

not sure if i amended the club overview info of the facilities panel info?

No picture at this moment. I am currently working on getting images down to level 10 of the pyramid. Still quite a lot to do at the moment.

I've just had a quick scan on google and couldn't see a decent picture I liked. If you have one in a good resolution from outside the ground I would be delighted to add it to the pack.

I really like doing the non-league grounds. I've taken quite a few pictures myself of non-league grounds. When I travel somewhere I like to swing by a few grounds on the way and get pictures, particularily of the less well known teams. I'm based in Yorkshire so might be a while till a trip to Sussex takes me past Hailsham.

That is exactly right. The graphics then load into memory when the game boots up. Are you seeing the club background pictures? What version of the game are you playing, FMC or full?

How the images load is down to the skin itself. I'm not sure how to get the mini pics on the club profile screen. The default skin may not support this.

Cheers. TBH there isnt a lot to see from outside, just trees and floodlights! - I took this one myself at a Reserve game last season, you are welcome to use it if you wish;

I find trees quite soothing as a background. The sort of pictures I like usually have the ground itself as part of the background while the foreground has other things going on.

Cheers for the picture, it's a little low res but I'll use it for the smaller interior image.

Love it if these work on match days. But one huge problem is I am always Barnet. And for some reason Underhill is still the stadium background on this download? Barnet have been at the hive for nearly 2 seasons now.

Noted, I've updated the Barnet images for the next update. I try to keep an eye on stadium moves but sometimes they get missed.

I'm not sure about matchdays, I think it is down to the skin whether they are displayed. The background pack just loads images into memory, it is down to the skin creator to decide which screens show where. My skin knowledge is pretty much zero.

Yeah just downloaded them and they dont work on match days for any of the 3 skins I have :( Why are match day backgrounds not in the game anymore?

I know what you mean. I really liked matchday backgrounds. I usually play in the lower leagues and it's nice as you progress to see the stadiums you are playing at going from just fields to massive super stadiums. I think that they have been outmoded by changes to the match engine though.

Hi there,

Just a quick query. On the opening post there is a Config file you can download so the interior of the stadium appears on the club and squad screen. Where do you put this? I have put it in the '/pictures' folder, replacing the existing Config.xml file, but that makes no background pictures appear at all. Just wondering if I am missing something obvious?

Thanks

I think I made a mistake when re-writing the code to generate the xml file. I stlll need to sort this out. This one should work https://www.dropbox.com/s/m4e3d1q4bi25uqs/config%201.3%20-%20reversing%20team%20and%20stadium%20pics.zip?dl=0 but you will be missing the stadiums added in patch 1.4 (a few eastern european leagues). I'll get it fixed for 1.5.

Andrew that dropbox config file only works on some of the interior landing pages. No clubs from England or Germany work.

I presume the graphics folder under FM2015 in documents. This is how it works with the PC version. Not so sure with Mac, it might be better posting in the main skinning forum.

Hi if I could be so cheeky as to add a request, it would be nice for a picture for Maidstone United in a future pack. They'll likely be up into the Conference South next season.

Absolutely no objections to requests. I'm actually working on level 7 so Maidstone would have been done either way, I've just gone and done them now so when I next get out an update this will be included.

How are the images shown during matches? I mean, a rarely see anything else but the match engine? :confused:

Sorry for the slow response. Unfortunately, I think matchday pictures have been removed from the game. Not sure if skin makers can bring them back in.

Just a quick update. I've done all sides in England down to level 8 now. I'm about halfway going through every English picture and replacing any I'm not happy with. I tend to replace about one picture in three so it is a fairly major undertaking.

I want to get the review complete and as many level 9 clubs as possible added and I'll release an update.

Just found this - fantastic! I'm managing in English level 9 at the moment (hopefully promoted to L8 soon) so can't wait for this to be released! :thup:
