[RELEASED] Stadium Backgrounds - MyPack

Recommended Posts

Download keeps failing? :(

It might have been because I haven't logged into Mediafire for a while. It seems to be working for me now. Please can you give it another go.

It's a bit odd. I gave it a try and it worked okay. I'll PM you a dropbox link.

Probably about time I released an update. Loads of updates since the last release. Big updates to Russia, Ukraine and Switzerland as I have played in these nations. Lots of miscellaneous updates as well.

I also got out and added more of my own images. I went on holiday to Carcassone in southern France recently . I got really good pictures of Anfield and Goodison on the way to Liverpool airport. Also had a little adventure to Toulouse. I speak no French but grabbed a bag and jumped on a train. The stadium is about 3 miles from the train station so it was a big walk, particularily as I got minorly lost on the way back. I ended up walking about 8 miles in the end. I got some decent pictures although the stadium itself is a bit ugly. They were doing some development work as I believe it is a Euro 16 stadium.

I'm going to have a trip out next weekend and get pictures of a few of the Lancashire stadiums, particularily Old Trafford and the Etihad. I'll release the update after this.

for me, not working - by using Flut Skin Dark 2.7

The location looks correct. Try it with the basic FM skin. If the backgrounds are visible then the issue is with the skin. If not let me know.

Thanks to help in another thread I've finally worked out why the backgrounds weren't showing on matchdays. This will be corrected in the next release.

I'll have it out this weekend. Really wanted to get it out during the week but I've been really busy at work and working late. Shattered when I've been getting home.

I got some nice pictures of Old Trafford and the Etihad last weekend. Definately improved the images of the Manchester clubs.

I use either Steklo or Scorpio myself. Both are very good. I actually don't mind the default FM2015 skin as well but the other two show off the backgrounds better.

Fought a tough relegation battle last evening; not sure I would have been successful without the realistic feel provided by your excellent collection of backgrounds. Super work, fella. Many thanks!

Thanks :) I get a lot of pleasure out of it.

I've been out and about to take more images myself the past few weeks. Really pleased with some of them. Got very good pictures of the north east clubs, Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Newcastle. I've taken pics of about 100 stadiums now. The best big stadium I've been to is St James' Park in my opinion, better than either of the Manchester stadiums (very disappointed by Old Trafford). Of the non-League stadiums I think that Stocksbridge Park Steels was my favourite. Wigan was the worst, very dull.

When I make it across the pond, I plan to see some stadiums myself. Now St. James' Park is on my list, though I'll probably try to make it to Old Trafford as well.

I'm managing a third division side in Sweden now (Västra Frölunda IF). Any Chance you could add some images? I've never created a file for any editing additions to the game, but I assume it would be quite difficult to add an image myself for a specific team and have the new image play nicely with the backgrounds pack you created.

Actually surprisingly easy to add them in. Have a look at the config.ini file in the backgrounds folder, the format isn't too difficult.

I struggle a bit with lower league teams abroad. Google translate helps with websites but sometimes tricky to browse for an image. If you have a decent image you want me to add let me know and if it's up to scratch (minimum resolution 1600x1200 and not blurred. Pics of the exterior and interior go on specific screens) I will add it into the pack :)

...Old Trafford is okay and worth the visit but I expected something a bit more.

I'm going to get some work done on the pack tomorrow ahead of a release to coincide with FM16. Any requests as to leagues/clubs anyone wants me to look at in particular?

If you pass Solihull Moors on your travels then I would love some quality ones of that...

I'm planning on a trip to Birmingham so definitely doable. May not be until next year though. Pictures look better with the sun shining. I've got a trip to Glasgow coming up in December. Hopefully the weather will be okay and I'll whip round as many grounds as I can manage.

I've just had a quick look and there's actually a decent picture of Solihull in the pack but the code in the config file is wrong. If you want to add it then open the config.ini file in the backgrounds folder in notepad. Search for Solihull and change the code for the club and team which for some reason is 30008 to the correct code which is 30010181. I'll update for the next release anyway.

Could someone do me a favour and let me know if my backgrounds work okay in FM16 as I'm not buying it until March when the final patch comes out.

i'm a real newby to all this, how do i get the images and that?

also is it possible to set the default to inside the grounds? i managed to get something on an version that set the default to outside the ground which to be honest wasn't always exciting. sometimes, but not always

If you download the pack from the link on the front page and extract in a folder called graphics which you may need to create in the 'Football Manager 2016' folder in the SI folder in your documents. There are zip files in the pack which contain different config files that use the images differently. One of them used the pic from inside the ground as default.

Just a quick update. I got to a few more grounds to get pictures before the weather turned bad so the next version will include these. I had a trip up to the north east and went around 9-10 grounds. This includes pics of Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Sunderland which are some of my favourites in the pack right now.

I have put quite a bit of work into some of the larger European Leagues including full updates to Germany and Italy. I have a trip to Scotland in a couple of weeks so will be getting to as many grounds as I can while I'm there. I will use this as a prelude to a full overhaul of the Scottish pictures as they haven't had a lot of effort from me over the past few years.

Simplest way would to just save the new pic over the old one, clear cache and reload.

try over on fmscout. to save a new pic find the file name over the one you want to over save in the folder, save a new picture under that name and move the original elsewhere.

just have a look at the size and type of the pic you are replacing copy that.- always .png size varies.

as for conflicts, the comp will usually just pick one and ignore the other if you have a pic for both. for file space i would remove the old (if its just an updated pack).

thanks,

so are all stad pics in fm not a standard size then?

and what about a config so they show up in game?

Are you jsut adding to this pack if so just overwrite the pic, the config wont change.

making you own get a program called fmxml.
