[FM 14 Released] Custom match-engine supporters flags and club logos for individual stadiums

Recommended Posts

Anybody still doing these?

I only worked on the national team ad-board banners - which I'll release in a few weeks, shortly before the world cup.

I'm not sure how to get the 3-tier stands working as its something I haven't used yet.

Doesnt seem to work on my game, neither with the standard light skin, any custom skins, in the normal graphics folder or in the ones of the skins... Ticked reload and emptied cache?

I'd like to add in some banners for my team (Crewe Alexandra), I've found some suitable .png images I can use, but am unsure how to set them up properly so they show up at Crewe. Can anybody give me an idiot's guide on how I might do this

Does anyone know if this is being updated for FM15?? It added much more realism to the match experience last year.

Hey Mazza, I've just plugged the same files into FM 15 and they seem to work fine. I've got to take a look at the coding to see if any ad file names changed (looks like "FM Live" is now "FMH" or vice-versa, for instance), or if there are new ads (like the Movember sponsors), but on just a preliminary look-through everything seems to work.

It may not have images yet for any newly promoted teams in the French, Italian or German leagues, but then again it might, as I tried to get all the more popular teams, even if they were in lower divisions. I'll look around and see what's missing and try to get something new up in a couple of weeks. Am also working on adding images for the MLS.

Thanks for everyone's feedback, and glad to hear people enjoyed it over the past few months,

As far as I am aware this just replaced the default ads, I don't think the ad board coding has changed in FM15 so the FM14 version may work in FM15.

Thanks for the information, Michael. One thing that is new in FM15 is the team banners that are scattered across the stadiums, with just the team names in a generic font. Are those images in the ad files, or accessible in another file, or are they hard-coded into the game and inaccessible? I looked through the new FM15 ad files and couldn't really find anything. Thanks.

I must be doing something wrong as the ads arn't showing.

Placed the first folder in the Sports Interactive/FM15 folder and i'm using a different skin (not SI's one) so placed the second one in that one's skins/graphics folder. Reloaded the skin in preferences and ran the game but still showing the default ads boards in the game.

Are you supposed to EXTRACT the folders or PLACE the folders in those folders?

With the improvements made to the stadiums overall in the game and with this work as an add on it really does take the game to another level for me.

Strangerthankindness, Would it/Could it be possible to add extra bits like the Champions League Logo to the advertising boards when playing in that competition, Barclays Premier League logo for Premier League Games etc..

From a quick look through the files looks like the flags are generated mainly through code, the base file seems to be the 'flag_atlas_tm_mask.dds' file stored in the \data\sigfx\stadiums\textures folder, you may be able to alter the appearance of the flags through altering that file (though this requires messing around with the 3D pitch graphics that can cause the game to crash if edited wrong rather than just not displaying, so backup the original files and save your game before messing around with them), though it doesn't look like the font or name/wording displayed are editable. (unless it's stored elsewhere).

Thanks for the reply, Michael. Yea, going into the 3D graphics sounds difficult. Will wait a bit on that one.

When i've looked in the "pictures" folder of your pack all i get is pictures of flowers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Andrew, no idea at all what's going on. I even just re-downloaded my pack to make sure it hadn't been hacked with pictures of flowers, but nope. None in there, so I don't know what happened to you. There are a lot of "pictures" folders on any computer, so you may have opened up or saved over a different one entirely. You seem to be doing it correctly: place the 1st ads folder in the Sports Interactive/FM15 folder, and the pictures/ads folder in the Sports Interactive/FM15/Graphics folder. If you already have a pictures folder in your graphics folder, place the ads folder in my pictures folder inside of it. And if you're using a skin, place it all in its graphics folder. Then reload skin, and you may sometimes have to restart the game to get them to appear. ALSO, MAKE SURE TO CLICK 'CLEAR CACHE.' IF YOU DON'T DO THIS, IT WILL NOT WORK.

Some skins may have other ad files or xml files that may be conflicting with this mod's, so that could be an issue. It seems like some people using skins have gotten it to work no problem, and others haven't had luck at all. Hope it works out for you.

For masonma, who inquired earlier about Crewe Alexandria, the easiest way is to go into the ads fm.xml, find a team that you don't care about, and replace it with Crewe. See my earlier post, #28, for exact details on replacing clubs and ads.

Finally mazzabul, regarding Champions Leagues/Premier league rotating logos, it's possible but tricky. I've filled up every club ad with club-specific ads, so if Man Utd has 13 ad spaces, all 13 are devoted to that club. You could subtract say 4 of them, so that 9 would be club-specific and 4 would default to the default ads, which are tied to competitions. If you look in the pictures/ads folder, you'll see that in europe for instance there is a list of every country, but also competition, with Champions league, Europa League, given. These folders have default ads for the individual competitions. So if Man Utd plays, you'd see 9 for the club, and 4 for the competition (if you go into the code to fix it). Individual countries also have default ads and folders for their national competitions, like Ligue 1 or La Liga, ALTHOUGH I FORGOT TO PUT IN THE EPL.

For this upload I prioritized getting club-specific images in there, especially as the sortitout mod used only competition logos and generic business ads, but in my next upload I'll see if I can mix it up for people, and try to at least leave space for competition-specific logos.

Hi All -

Almost done with an update for FM15. Will include upgrades of poor quality and low-resolution images, new images for existing clubs, and new leagues and clubs, including a major upgrade for North America. All MLS teams will be included, as well as most Liga MX squads and over 15 major Central American clubs for those playing in the CONCACAF Champions League. Every new team promoted to the major European leagues have been included. Also ALL Sky Bet Championship and League 1 teams are added, and some Argentine and Copa Libertadores squads for those playing in South America.

Will have it up in the next week, but until then here are a few sample images.....

Amazing work. Not sure if you're familiar with the 1882 movement at Tottenham Hotspur? Would love to see an 1882 flag or perhaps a 'Up the Spurs' one.

Missed this pack for FM14. Looking forward to installing for 15.

Release next week?

Yea this weekend I hope, thanks. Got a little lost going down some rabbit holes doing google-image searches for things like "Penarol Ultras" or "CD Sabadell Scarves" or "FC Heidenheim banners," lol, but need to wrap it up.

With Tottenham, if you can find a link to an image for the 1882 movement, I can put it in. Have found a couple of flags with 1882 Spurs on them, but don't knof if that's what you mean. Also no matter what, once its downloaded it's pretty easy to replace images with whatever you want.

Hi All -

New edition for FM15 up here!

http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/411766-fm15-released-stadium-graphics-banners-for-3d-match-engine

Nearly 5,000 images, or almost double last year's size (2,700 images). Huge increase in South and North America, plus updated and cleaned-up graphics for existing teams. All Champions League teams are included, plus all but 4-5 from the Europa League.

Please visit the new thread to download. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy!

PS Urbanjunkie, thx for the links. I couldn't use the Up the Spurs one as it was just too square; they work best as very long rectangles (1024x124 about), which is why things like scarves work great. It just came out looking too squashed. I did put in the actual 1882/Born in North London banner and a Sing For the Shirt logo too, and other images do use the fighting **** motif. Dunno if that works or not. Here is what Spurs looks like in-game....

Can't quite make things out with this screengrab, but it looks pretty good in-game. Thanks!
