The FM21 Adboard Patch


The Football Manager Adboard Patch contains thousands of static and video adboard’s to bring the 3D match engine to life. The patch contains video adboard’s for the most popular European leagues and its continental competitions. In addition, some clubs have fan banners as close to their real-life locations as possible adding some character and realism to the match engine, some examples are below.

4. Now open the ‘ads’ folder, you will notice two folders one called ‘Club Adboards’ and one called ‘Non Club Adboards’.

Choose your preferred fm.xml file from either folder and copy and paste the file into the ads folder,

If playing Football Manager via ‘Epic Games’ open the folders within the ‘Steam’ folder until you reach the Football Manager 2021’ folder and place this folder in the following directory: PC: C:\Program Files (x86)/epic games

6. Open the ‘How to stop Bidstack Ads’ folder and copy the ‘bidstack_enabled.xml’ file to this directory

I have dedicated 1000's of hours, making and coding adboard’s for Football Manager since 2008. These adboard patches have attracted over 100,000 downloads and remain the only real way to inject some personality into the Football Manager match engine. While this is a free patch if you wish to donate as way of thanking me for my time you can do so by the link below

Hi Guys, 

i want to help. now i wrote a Comment in German Big FM Community, to help us, to find very goot Pictures, for the real German Adboards. I hope the Community can help. Thanks and good Day. Link: https://www.meistertrainerforum.de/index.php/topic,27908.new.html#new

Ich schreibe mal auf Deutsch weiter, rabcp habe ich bereits eine Nachricht geschickt. Es ist schwierig, Videobanden zu finden, die in der ganzen 2. BL zu finden sind. Sie ist regional stark verschieden. Im Norden konnte ich bei Hamburg, St.Pauli, Kiel und Hannover mit der Werbung für NDR2 eine Gemeinsamkeit finden. Die Werbung für “König-Pilsener” habe ich (im Norden) zweimal gesehen. Würde sagen, allerdings beruht die Erkenntnis auf Spielen/Zusammenfassungen, die ich selbst geschaut habe, dass Werbung für die beiden großen Supermarktketten REWE und EDEKA immer zu finden ist. Ebenso ist VW stark vertreten. Ich habe aktuell 11 Clubs auf YT in Zusammenfassungen angeschaut.

Have Fifa 21 Original Adboards for example germany 1-3 Bundesliga?

maybe you can use that. to look, which adboards are inside - or maybe you can find a Adboard Patch for Fifa 21 then you can see the Original Adboards 

 

by the way: for pes21 here are a big Adboard Patch: Link: https://evo-web.co.uk/threads/adboards-by-gothlay-and-chosefs-bayer-leverkusen-some-fixes-post398.84193/

- in their you can see many Clubs in the World with real Adboards - maybe you can use these Pictures for creating more/new Adboards for FM21.

Thank You very much!!!

🙂

The adboard request thread is here. You'll need to provide photos or videos of the adboards you want to be added too 👍

Hello. First of all, congratulations for your work. It makes the game visually very pleasant. 👍👍
 

My question concerns an object also present in the 3d engine: the corner posts . 
I noticed that they change depending on where you play. Indeed, these are weird (white with 2 blue lines, half black / half orange on the diagonal, ...)

So I think they are changeable too. 

 

As you are the only one working on the 3d display, I was wondering if you could also take a look when you have some availability ?

 

Best regards.

Thank you, as far as I know the corner flags run of a fixed template, similar to the in game fan flags, so they are not easy to change as you would have to change the files before every match

Alian62 over on the Sigames forum has discovered a hidden stadium editor within FM21, while it is very limited, it does help add an extra layer to the 3D match engine. I have had a play around with it and have decided to include some stadium edits within the adboard patch, Please direct any questions about these to this thread: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/58086/stadium-edits-fm21


here are some examples


Bordeaux

 

Braga

hi @rabcp  i have a request please can you do the Inter Milan and Hertha Berlin adboards?

 

Hi there, 

This is my first attempt in making adboards, it's Inter adboards for FM21. It took 2 days to prepare the files and learn from the tutorial by @rabcp 

So here some preview.

 


How to install
1. Copy static_adboards to
C:\Users\Username\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\pictures\ads\europe\italy\clubs

2. Copy video_adboards to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\simatchviewer_uncompressed\videos\hd\video_ads\italy\clubs
(it's either hd or sd folder name, depending on what working for you)

3. Copy the .xml file content to your fm.xml files on C:\Users\Piere\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\ads (club version)
(Make sure to paste the <record> tag and list tag, or just search for fiorentina or milan placement for example)
