Believe me, I've followed all the steps (on the first page here and in the txt-files) and tried doing all the installations maybe three or four times now. Spent hours trying to get it to work. Playing in the Bundesliga and it might be that the league is not working then, I don't know. Really a pity as I love the adboards and appreciate all the work that has been done.

Drop me a PM - I may have a possible solution for you 👍

@rabcp will you make a version for FM21 any time?

I am working on a version for FM21, first I need to reposition the static ads within stadiums as they move when new stadium models are introduced. The below image shows the process I potentially need to go through for 59 clubs which is quite time consuming.

I have the same black boards in the Scottish Premiership. In FM 2020 it worked without problems. So probably no wrong installation on my end.

Keep in mind due to a long overdue bug fix by SI the first video ad will display as black before the normal ones kick in

I'm still waiting for Inter Milan videoads
I'm trying to make it myself but I don't understand about the code for fm.xml file

@rabcp...did Inter Milan still in your w.i.p list?

I currently have no W.I.P list

Within the ‘football manager 2021/ads’ folder there are two additional folders, one called ‘clubs’ and the other ‘no clubs’ copy the xml file from the ‘clubs’ folder to the ‘football manager 2021/ads’ folder

@rabcp @mons

You asked what issiues I have, so I'll try to be as specific as I can here.

My specs
Mac, MacOS Catalina 10.15.7

Graphics folder
I extract first 1,0 and then 1,1 1,2 1,3 and 1,4 to the following directory:
/Users/myname/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/graphics/pictures


XML-folder and files
I follow the same steps with extracting 1,1 up to 1,4 to the following directory:
/Users/myname/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/ads

I then copy the XML-file from the clubs folder and paste it in the ads folder


Steam folder
I follow the same steps with extracting 1,0 up to 1,4 and paste the "simatchviewer_uncompressed" folder to:
/Users/myname/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2021/data


In the game
I have unticked "using skin cache" and "clicking on ad board takes you to owners website" and then reloads the skin. I have also tried to clear the cache.

Thoughts/problems
- When I hold the option key merging the files, it says that I cant merge because there are aldready a file named desktop.ini
- In the Football Manager 2021 folder, the following folders starts with a big letter (Caches, Preferences, Temporary) but not the other folders. Could that trouble something with the XML-file?
- I have attached a picture of how the adboards looks in game

I eventually got it to work

You need to keep over copying the xml file and also I just copied the video file to steam each time for the 6 updates, works fine now, even got a @mons seal of approval. He is a legend

I suggested to him the same solution which worked for you, but @West Walton was a bit hesitant. We'll see...

Yes, but you must register these movements in the ads->fm file.

you have only done half the work, you then need to find this piece of code in the xml file:

<!-- Leeds, rabcp -->
<list id="671">
<integer value="20000"/>
<integer value="3226"/>
<integer value="3227"/>
<integer value="3228"/>
<integer value="3229"/>
<integer value="3230"/>
<integer value="3231"/>....

and assign your new ads in here too, which would give you

<integer value="7193"/>
<integer value="89"/>
<integer value="98"/>

<integer value="3227"/>
<integer value="3228"/>
<integer value="3229"/>
<integer value="3230"/>
<integer value="3231"/>....

also ensure that the ID's you have assigned each adboard too are free

Congratulations for the wonderful work of adboards!!!
Sorry, two questions ...
is it possible insert video ads in Blundell Park, Grimsby? Or the format of this stadium does not allow it?
And what does it means 20000 as integer value?
Thank you

As they mentioned in the same post you replied to, it's quite a big job updating the placement of the FM 21 stadiums' ad boards, so it could take a while. Fortunately, the ad boards can be installed and updated without having to start a a new save, so until it's ready we'll have the next best thing, the current FM 20 version of adboards, at our disposal.
