Weston-Super-Mare's Optima Stadium (2000276223) also needs stadium insides and background, please 🙂

This is not how you do it 🤷‍♂️ 

Find a picture that fits the “guidelines” for that given background/stadium:

https://sortitoutsi.net/content/57340/tutorials-and-guidelines-for-contributors

Then resize it to fit one of the sizes that we use in the pack (there are two for each type, resize to nearest size allowed) you can use a number of programs to resize:

 https://skylum.com/da/blog/best-free-photoshop-alternatives

Then press the contribute tab and either search for what you want to submit a picture for or hit the upload image or upload multiple button. You can also use the browsing system to find what you are looking for.

 

 

We don't do requests 👍 You either do it yourself or cross your fingers and hope that someone else do it by their own interest at some point 🙂

@Belfastchris and @Ali Baba The backgrounds does not work with the standard/default FM skin. 

Try to look at our skin section and find a skin that you like (I personally recommend “flut dark skin”):

This is not a sale pitch, but just stating the facts. If you pay for premium membership you will have access to downloading directly from our servers and you can then complain if something is not right. As a non premium member you download from free mirrors (external sites) where we don't have any control over download speed or anything else 👍

Well it actually looks alright from what I can see. But this is the best advice I can give:

Delete what you have and download the complete file (not latest change file) using chrome (or any other download manager available online) so you can resume any interruptions in your download making sure you get the full file. Then extract the files in to your /graphics/backgrounds folder using winrar. Once extracted check that all the files are there and do not move anything around… the config file is supposed to be outside the image folder. So if we use the “Team city” as a example, there should be a image folder with 18.853 images in it and a config file outside the image folder.

Thanks for the hints,

I have done this 3 or 4 times now with every pack and only the team_city_backgrounds does not work…

Good day,

 

I am having a small issue in getting a background stadium pic and stadium inside to show.

 

I am playing FM24 24.2, using flutskin dark v2.

 

I have a background pack that is working just fine.

 

I started a new game in the lower leagues with Old Alts, there is no pics for them, so I made my own by doing the following.

 

Found the two pics I like and made copies of them. Renamed the jpg files to the ID of the club. Made a config file to do the mapping. No luck. The background I am seeing when viewing the club screen is not what I am expecting to see.

 

This is my folder layout in graphics/backgrounds/old alts/

 

I have attached the config file.

 

I have been doing this since cm days so do understand what is going on and have got it working in previous versions, however this has me stumped.

 

Any help would be very much appreciated!!

There seems to be nothing wrong with the config. Most likely it is the pictures you are using that there is something wrong with. Just one example of what could be wrong: the file extension needs to be .jpg (lower case letters) and not .JPG the game will not load the picture with a extension that is uppercase.

Can someone just confirm - do the ‘FMT Stadium Superpack’ and the ‘Stadiums’ insides pack (shown in my picture below) contain the same stadium pictures that are within the ‘stadium_backroundsand stadium_insides  files that are within the ‘FM Backgrounds Megapack’?

No the FMT stadium super pack only shows picture the same places as the inside stadium and it is not the same pictures. The inside stadiums pack is frequently updated and has in general much higher quality pictures and covers many more stadiums. You do not need the FMT stadium pack if you have the inside stadiums of this pack.

That is not the id of Real Betis stadium 🤷‍♂️ Benito Villamarin id=1053 (you must be using a custom database that alters the stadium of betis)

You can use the browsing system to find the stadiums you are looking for, by going to club:

Ah I see, I already expected that for those two. After some digging I found that they are caused by the stadium fix file of @priority76.

 

I'll double check in future to see if more stadiums are coming from an editor file. I want to update and add a lot of Dutch stadiums, but some are missing from the official DB so they will be excluded. Thanks!

@Qvordrup how often do you release new versions of the pack? I've added more than 100 stadium_insides for Dutch Lower League teams, but I'm unable to use fmXML to create the XML myself as on macOS you're not allowed to select JPG images in the tool…
