I suspect there might be a problem with the winter ball showing. Need to investigate. Also getting the generic ball to show for friendlies and any leagues/competitions not covered in the pack.


I believe friendly matches have a specific ID like any other type of competition. When I click the word "Friendly" in any team schedule, the ID on the Friendly "page" is 104551. Maybe by using that code to specify a ball it could be assigned to all friendly matches?

I'll try if this works when I get to playing friendlies in my save, but if anyone wants to test it out right away, you can add this to the config.xml of the ball pics and see if it shows up correctly in a friendly match:

<!-- Friendly matches -->
<record from="(file name of the ball you want to be used in friendlies)" to="graphics/pictures/balls/104551/default"/>

You need to load up the pre-game editor, type in the league you are after, and it will show you the unique id for that and other leagues. Unfortunately I am not near my laptop, so can't get this information for you.

Or check it in the game by clicking on "Show screen IDs in Title Bar to assist skinning" under skin setting in preferences, then search for league from main title bar.

Could you add the danish Superliga ball? 🙂

Remarkably similar to the Liga Nos ball but will do. Ok, follow the instructions in the READ ME file and you're done.

Thank you for considering it.

Make some noise in support peoples and we might get to see some classic 3-D footballs on our screens.

Best thing is to give links to the footballs you want. High quality, ball only is best. But full ball with background is ok if only option.

I'm guessing you missed my original post where I announced the balls and the reason I could now create balls again, as I did for FM17 and FM18. With FM19 & FM20, it was impossible to replicate balls with any kind of accuracy. In FM21, Si has thankfully completely changed the ball graphic. So being totally different, the FM21 ball will not work in FM20.

I do have some balls from 2017-18 but as my partner says, it depends if a decent graphic of older balls is available, otherwise quality will suffer.

Hi, this is excellent, is there any way of adding the SPFL ball. I've added a link below as its probably the best way of showcasing all sides of the ball for you?

SPFL Ball (apologies if this isn't allowed)

Thanks in advance

English Northern Premier League ball (IDs: 5103716 - 90081108 - 90081109).
Please bear in mind that the "Chryso" logo should appear only on the front of the ball, but not on the back.
