FM20 Backgrounds: Stadium Pack

Recommended Posts

Anyone any idea what stadiums these are in Qatar?

If you Google them, it's like they don't exist.

Here's the list from FM20 for Qatar World Cup stadiums;

Heads up @stevemc, the picture you have for Penybont in Wales is actually the stadium of CPD Llanerchymedd (Club UID #74010317, no stadium UID that I could find).

I'm currently managing my home town team and I thought "That doesn't look like Bryntirion Park!" (The actual giveaway was the phone numbers on the advertising hoardings not being the Bridgend area code)

I haven't been able to find a photo of Bryntirion Park/Kymco Stadium/SDM Glass Stadium that matches your current manual of style (regarding size and resolution), but if I do find one, I will send it your way.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work!

Cheers mate, if you find one, I'd be happy to make the change :thup:

I'm trying to add my local clubs stadium in but having no luck at all. 
I've tried editing the config file as previous but it just doesn't want to generate.

 

Even tested it the Wolves third kit, attempted to make it my home kit but wouldn't work.

You can use FMXML to add your own packs.  I do it for every game.  Follow this link to learn how to do it.  You can also go to sortitoutsi to download the app.

No you'll need a skin that supports transparencies, like this: https://community.sigames.com/topic/503755-fm20skin-base-skin-with-backgrounds-support/

I can't make it work... : ( 
i'm using the fm20skin-base-skin-with-backgrounds-support/ skin mentioned above.

Have you done this too?

3. Go to preferences (advanced and select interface) and ensure "Reload Skin" is ticked (you may need to clear your cache too) and click "confirm". As per the below screenshot.

Post a screenshot of your FM preference and the files in your finder/pc.

On first sight, it looks correct (but I'll check it against my game) - have you tried clearing the cache? Looks like your using a Mac too?

 

But...

I've deleted the cahce folder, 
also deleted that "stadium" folder you've pointed out.
realoaded skin - still nothing.

I've managed to load in a basic background photo which came with the skin i'm using but even after I delete it's files I can't make the other images work. 

I'm using a Mac yes.

As a test, load my skin in, and select it in your preferences then reload skin:

If that works, then it's an issue with your current skin. I'm a Mac user too.

Also, are any of your other graphics from that folder recording into the game, like the logos?

What do you use to unzip your files?

Maybe try re-downloading the file, and use Keka to unzip it?

I've got them working with the Base skin with transparency. Excellent work. Anybody know any more transparent skins they work with? Preferably with the 'instant result' button?

I am pretty sure that this is the line you need:

        <record from="benitez-r" to="graphics/pictures/player/4203246/background"/>

The bits in bold you will need to change yourself to the background name of the picture and player id.

Hope that helps

Thanks. I'll probably leave it then as I reckon it would take ages to complete.

Sorry for the late reply.  I haven't been back for a while.  It's the same thing.  Just tick the box that says uses translate filenames to IDs.  It will create a config file for you that you can place into your player background pack folder.  Put the folder in your graphics folder.

It worked.. but not in the way I hoped. It has created them as a face pack, so they replaced the sortitoutsi cut out faces mega pack instead of creating a background image because there is no option to pick that.

Sounds like you need to change the config file. If it's replacing the faces then the config will end with  /portrait"/>. Try changing that to /background"/>

I replaced the portrait with background for all and it has worked, thanks :D
