@Cjames14 and @whatsthepoint I dont think the “Tato23 FM23 Skin v1.0” supports backgrounds. The skin is not available on our site at the moment and you should aks where you have downloaded the skin from 👍

Thanks for the great update.

 

Sorry, i´m since over 10 or 15 years here at sortitoutsi, but i din´t understand the structure of this file:

Which folders i have to copy to my backgrounds? It´s realy complicated since the version 2023 for me.

 

Why can´t it look like this and i have only to copy the files to my pc? I know, you know why, but i don´t understand😢 I got it and it´s working, but i don´t know if a new user get it to work too.

@Footygamer It's the same problem again with this update where the config files are seperated within different folders

@Footygamer I agree with this user 🙂. I know it is probably a mistake, but please fix the unnecessary complex folder structure. I would also advice on dropping the “image” folder and just having the config and the images files directly in the main folder. No one looks at the config file but just wants a simple way of updating their packs. Keep it as simple as possible please 🙂👍

Sorry this was an accident yet again. I've been super busy these past few weeks and keep making small stupid mistakes. The config shouldn't be in a separate folder like that, the zip files have been updated now to fix this and i'm going to find the time to do a bunch of testing and make sure it's 100% okay for next month.

 

@Qvordrup  The separate images folder we've already spoken about and I still don't understand the issue. What problems is it causing? It solves a small problem e.g. computers freezing when opening a folder with 10s of thousands of images and having to sort or scroll to find the config.xml and creates no issues as far as i'm aware. Can you explain really clearly what the problem is? Sorry if you already have and i've forgotten.

 

To be clear that second point about the “image” folder is completely separate from the separate “changes” folder issue which is a bug and has been fixed.

First of all thanks for fixing the important issue 👍 Then the second tiny issue…. yes I've raised the question before and it is simply because I think the extra “image” folder is unnecessary noting more noting less. I dont think any one is looking at or editing the config so I dont understand the argument for having the extra folder. Having as simple a folder structure as possible just makes more sense to me, and why do the “cut out” not have a “image” folder within the faces and iconfaces folders if that is the best solution? Any how.. I think we should just agree on disagreeing whether the “image” folder is a good idea 😂

I'm looking to replace the above image in the background MP. I assumed it would be the city ID which is 8600159 but I have searched the “team_city_backgrounds” folder and there isn't am image named 8600159.

 

I then thought it could be the club ID which is 106580. Again, searched for that, and nothing. 

 

Any idea what the image ID is please?

It is the club ID 106580, and if you have the full pack it is definitely in the “team city background” folder 👍

Thank you buddy, I'm guessing you would believe me if I told you I just searched again for it and it's now appeared 🤦‍♂️

Why does it look like this? I know Haarlem as a town is in the citypack (with ID 575) but it still doesn't work… Something wrong with the config?

@Sebban95 The city images are linked to the club ID, not that of the city. Looks like you have a custom database so you might have to add one yourself

Can you post screenshots of both the config and where the image is in the folder itself?

Sorry for my late reply, got it working when I added the team id correctly in both folders! 
Thanks again for a great pack and Merry Christmas!

Hello folks,
I have already downloaded and installed the complete Background Megapack.
If I now add the updates - do I have to add the attached config or do I just have to add the images?
Thank you and best regards

To apply an update you have to copy all images from the update folder and place them in your backgrounds folder, it should ask you to overwrite the ones that were already in there (click ‘yes to all'). You need to do the same with the config, just delete the old one and replace it with the config from the update pack.
