I'll have a go at English Championship clubs if that's OK?
1024x128 yes? Any tips?
We aim for accuracy with this pack - Aim to have any boards you produce as close as possible to the actual boards
And what governs how many ad boards a club has?
Can they have, say, 20? Or do I need to adjust the XML for that?
Clubs could have 40 or so boards but again accuracy is key - Aim to keep to boards used by the different clubs (this is usually about 16 or so)
You can post updates here but if you can also PM me a link to the update. This speeds up getting them added to the pack.
And is there anything to distinguish lower & upper stands ad boards?
This however is something we have no control over the game picks and chooses boards based on the stadium design and the boards positions pitchside

I will have a bash at some clubs and see if you approve.

How they look? Just want to add the Sky Bet, Original Enterprise Insurance, Macron, Tool Station & Monarch are not mine.

The double Enterprise Insurance is a bit of a conundrum in that it works on the pitchside ad boards but has a habit of getting seperated on the upper tier ad boards, which is why I've only put them in as alternatives.

tv_capper I'll pm you the link for the boards but I've had no luck getting boards 13, 14, 15 & 16 to show up....tried adding codes in the 9000s to the XML but no luck.

Hey Beast72,

Download the below template and place your adboard over and multiply the layer to have the texture shine though.

http://dfiles.eu/files/34vy4uv9n

I also use two layers with the actual adboard and give the top layer a 4.0 Gaussian Blur (filter -> blur -> Gaussian Blur) and multiply and merge with the below adboard, I then re multiply, merge the layers and set brightness to 50 and contrast to 10 to get a better finish. (the second link will give you and aboard with no layers merged to give you a better idea of the above steps.

Hope that all helps

Another quick tip for you when doing adboards like the one above where the pattern repeates its worth leaving a gap between the images to help space it out better.

What I tend to do for boards with the one deaign is create a new image 924x90 and make the adboard desing before pasting it onto my texture this means my boards have an even 50 pixel border at the sides and 28 pixel at the top or bottom!

For an adboard like above say I was repeating the fosters image twice, I'd create an image 412x90 and fill that with the fosters image. i'd then make an new image 924x90 and paste one fosters image at either end which gives me the same border as above along with a 50 pixel gap between my two fosters images

Ok, cheers for the tip - was trying achieve the accuracy of the ad board at the South Stand Elland Road

They look great Beast72, feel free to continue with championship teams

hey rab - how do you get that digitized look on the boards?
I have a different process. However I'd suggest learning rabcp's method as it looks more authentic

Rabcp - I realise that you've moved onto the Premiership now.
Once those boards are done, do you plan on heading any further down the Scottish leagues in future updates?

I've made some generic ones for League 1 and 2, Club wise the sponsors are all to obscure for the remaining clubs to find decent images for and would take too long too make from scratch. Thats just leaves the League Challange Cup and Scottish Cup which I'll update in a few weeks time which will then complete Scotland.

Would it be possible to make the adboards for the MLS clubs please?
If not possible, then a working config file for those clubs would be appreciated as I can make the boards myself. I believe, at present, the ID numbers for the MLS clubs are not being recognized, so the adboards won't show.

i've noticed the A-League ads don't seem to be working either, no reason why they shouldn't as the IDs are all correct, possibly something to do with the way the MLS and the A-League have their regular season/playoffs structured as two separate sub-competitions under the league?

I must be hexed.

SI must have changed something in the coding of FM15 for some certain leagues as I have come across the same sort of thing.

I originally came across this when I discovered that certain teams in the French 3rd Div couldn't make the ad boards appear. Some teams can, some teams can't and no logical reason why as the ID's were all correct. I had a corruption in that game and started a new game in the A-League. I even made up individual ad boards for each of the teams before I started the game only to find out the A-League teams can't display those ad boards at all. Even the ads that are in the generic folder named "Australia" that comes with this patch do not appear. The only ones that appears are the modified default ones.

I made an little update of norwegian adboards. Please tell me if they look ok.
They are just simple adboards and nothing fancy.
