sortitoutsi Background and Stadium Packs

@Igort Can you post screenshots of both your graphics and backgrounds folder?
@franck69 Looks like for the city backgrounds you have multiple folders, I can't see the stadium one at all
When downloading an update pack, you have to move the contents (images + config) of that pack into your ‘main' backgrounds folder and overwrite what's currently in there. Right now you will probably have multiple configs, that way the game can't read them.
Since you're a premium member, I'd suggest just fully deleting all backgrounds folders you have now and then downloading the ‘complete' versions that are on this page
@6scholl6 did cleared cache and reloaded skin. doesnt work
@Igort and this is the person background folder with the players backgrounds in it.
@Igort Can you try just deleting this config here? We have changed the way the pack is structured, that file is still from the previous version
@Drafter i deleted the config file you mentioned. now none of the backgrounds work and i have the in game manager background everywhere.
What's in the ‘1.sortitoutsi' folder?
player cut out faces
There must be another config hidden somewhere but I don't know either. Try fully deleting the complete pack and then installing again if you can't find it
Thank you. it worked after deleting and installing it new.
HI! I also followed the procedures exactly but reloading the skins, the backgrounds don't load, help?!
Please post screenshots of your graphics and background folders
in the background folder there is the images folder and config.xml file
Can you post a screenshot of that as well? And what skin are you using?
Could anyone please advise me of the best skin to use for this? Thanks in advance
Hi, i've reinstalled the game and after downloading all the backgrounds again they look blurry and zoomed-in now, player backgrounds, city backgrounds, i'm using zealand skin which the backgrounds worked perfectly before reinstalling the game. i did a clean installation i deleted the sports interactive folder before installing the game again on steam.
I fixed it replacing my new config file in my skins folder with an older one.
Well… it was a temporary fix, i just can't get the backgrounds to look normal, everything (except the picture of the stadium) is blurred out.
Anyone has an idea of what could it be? T_T
These are my folders
It's deffinitely an issue with Zealand's skin not working well with the background images, at least that is for the newest version you can find in fmblog, the older version you can get in fmscout works perfectly.
The Celta Vigo stadium inside picture isn't showing for me. Is there an issue with the config or the stadium pic? All other stadium pics are working.
Can you post a screenshot of your stadium folder like this, showing how many images are in there? The image of the Celta stadium has number 1031
I don't think there is anything wrong with the config file, but you can try downloading the most recent update pack to get a version that should be correct
I downloaded the complete pack & the Celta Vigo stadium is there but it doesn't show in game. I've tried reloading the skin & clearing the cache but it didn't do anything.
This is what the config file looks like.
Ok I figured out what the problem was. I'm using the “worldwide stadium improvements” mod from here & the stadium edits had changed the config. I've added the new config number & now it's working fine.
Appreciate the effort and time….
Hopeful of assistance with an issue, please?
Using latest FLUT Skin 8.0
All other SIOISI packs as pictured/attached working fine,
Any advice/assistance would be much appreciated!!
Luv your work; long time subscriber, rare commenter….
Apologies, I think I have a handle on the problem, and am probably in the wrong forum as well…..
That said any advice / assistance offered would be greatly appreciated!
Anyway Stadium pics or not……… new game start; Rnd. 1 of new season against Fierce Rivals “the dirty Merida” up 3 - 0; top the table after 1 game…. RAMOS BADAJOZ!!!!
There is wrong Background Image for Gradski Stadion Velika Gorica (ID: 129938). Current image is an image of Rujevice (Rijeka Stadium). This could be a better picture.
Stadium ID: 2000227544 - Inside - Background
Stadium ID: 129964 - Inside
The black screen indicates one of two problems. The black screen is prof that you have config files that refers to no pictures/images in both your inside and background stadium packs. One you have no pictures in your image folders. Two you have config files somewhere else in your folders that is causing the problem. Solution to One is to download the full (not update) inside stadium and stadium background packs again and unzip the files in to the image folder and overwrite the config. Solution to two is to search your folders and remove the config files that are causing the problems.
Thanks mate appreciate the feedback. You certainly are right….
I'm still not 100% certain of what caused the issue, but I believe after some exhaustive cross-referencing I found a config.xml and stadium pictures within the
"asking prices" folder.
I assume they were misplaced there trying to add a small additional stadium pack….
Fortunately internet download speeds are far superior to what they once were, and unfortunately it took a complete uninstall / reinstall to find the possible cause.
All good now though, back to beautiful looking normal….
Thanks again for your efforts, much appreciated!!!
