Q. Why are there two different xml files?

A. As the folder names suggest one xml file contains club specific ad-boards and one doesn’t. This has been done as in previous patches people have complained that they see clubs specific ad-boards in cup competitions. Due the way the xml file there is no way around this using code. The only solution would be the use of two files.

For example say you are Arsenal and want Arsenal specific ad-boards in the Premiership and the Champions league ad-boards in the Champions League you would follow these steps;

1. Load up FM with the Club Specific config file in use
2. Play your league game (Arsenal ads will show)
3. Before your Champions League game Save and quit FM15
4. Replace the club specific config file with the non club config file.
5. Re boot FM15
6. Play your Champions League match (Champions League ads will show)

How to code ad-boards


Open up the ads.xml file located My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/ads

First of all you have to load the graphics into FM15 which is done by the following piece of code the near the bottom of the xml file


<record id="2191" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/puma"/>
<record id="2192" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/skysports"/>
<record id="2193" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/espn"/>

What this code means

- Just identifies to whoever is reading the xml file what this piece of code is for competitions/clubs..

<record id="2191" - Assigns a unique id number to specific ad-board (you makes this number up but make sure it is not already in use elsewhere in the config)

path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/puma"/> - Location of the ad-board which has just been given a unique id number

The next bit of code determines where the previously assigned ad-boards will be displayed
<!-- Hibernian, rabcp -->
<list id="17">
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
.
.
.
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
</list>

What this code means

<!-- Hibernian, rabcp --> - Just identifies to whoever is reading the xml file what this piece of code is for competitions/clubs along with the author of the adboards.

<list id="17"> - Unique id of the competition/clubs the ad-boards are for

<integer value="2191"/> - Positions adboard number 2191 in to be displayed for games in the assigned competition/club. This code needs repeated 45 more times as there are 46 adboard spaces on the maximum pitch size

I hope to be able to release smaller update packs after changes to avoid people having to re download the entire pack

F.A.Q.

Q: Will the boards show if I play using the 2d view?
A: Yes, If you play the Full game. They will not show up in Classic mode

Q: Will this pack 'rotate' like the default boards from SI?
A: Yes, they will

Q: I like using a text size of larger or smaller than the 100% setting, can I still use this?
A: We recommend using the 100% setting for at least the install. You should be able to re-scale your text after installation

Q: Can I contribute to the Ad Boards Pack
A: Yes, Just make sure any boards you supply are accurate. FM is a simulation and the object of this pack is to make the game as realistic as possible!
All Boards must be 1024 x 128 and in PNG format

Q: I've found a problem with some Boards/Club/League in the pack, what should I do?
A: Please make sure you have followed each step of the instructions.
If they still do not work Please list the following:
Which XML are you using, what Clubs/League/Boards are affected & what you are seeing instead
This will help us to isolate the problem so we can attempt to fix it
