Can you post a screenshot of that as well? And what skin are you using?

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.

-----------

Nevermind!

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

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.

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!!!

We have plans to make a leagues mod, and a background mod with it. Cities and stadiums in and out.

I know the program ‘FM Graphics Configurator’, but I have done only logo packs with it.

 

There is option ‘Background - Stadium’ there, but how to to use that program most efficiently with all three options -

cities bg and stadiums inside and background? Or is there another program, or…?

 

Renaming folders, and using ‘search and replace’ in config-file?

 

BTW, will it cause problems, if those pictures aren't in defined size?

 

Thanks.

read this: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/60493/how-to-use-a-specific-part-of-the-megapack 🙂

 

Regarding size: it is the ratio that matters especially for “inside stadiums”. Meaning that 800x480 is the right ratio between height and width for “inside stadiums”. you can have them bigger or smaller as long as you make equal changes to both height and width. We also use 1200x720 for “inside stadiums” they are better quality but has the same height/width ratio as 800x480. I would do the same with all the stadium backgrounds (out side) and city pictures (the ratio used here is 1920x1080), it is only inside stadiums that use the other ratio). If you don't do it the pictures won't fit most skins or get cut off strangly 👍

Regarding size: …

 

What pic size is about the MAX? Cities 1920x1080? What is the minimum (so that pic looks nice)?

well it very much depends on the source picture you use, and the size of the screen you have, but there are no max or minimum. You will have to try and figure out your self what works and what don't 🙂, and then decide on one or two sizes pr. category that fit. The main problem with very large pictures are there size in terms of mb/gb, because you pack will grow very fast if you use large pictures🙂. And one last thing is that you really don't want to upscale your source pictures in size to much that will only make them look blurry, and remember that .png files are much larger than .jpg files 👍

Try using some of the skins uploaded to our site :  https://sortitoutsi.net/football-manager-skins

I would recommend “flut dark skin” : https://sortitoutsi.net/content/61229/fm-2023-flut-skin-dark-beta

 

You can press this button to make the background more black and the text more “readable”

Hi guys,
First of all, I want to thank the people who take time to make these packs and update them it's been keeping my drive to make longer saves for a while now and I'm so grateful <3
I was eager to try a new save in Cyprus but noticed that the brand new Alphamega Stadium that I think all the teams in Limassol use is missing. ( I have all the latest updates of your packs )  So I was wondering if you can put it in the next update?
Much love and appreciation!

hello everyone and congratulations for the hard work you do by keeping the various packs up to date. 

I just wanted to highlight a lack in the stadium_insides folder: Benito Villamarin is not present in the Betis Sevilla stadium, or perhaps it has a wrong id.
