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.

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

Thanks for theses, they are fantastic. 

 

My one slight problem is that I can never remember what I have downloaded. Is there any way that these packs/updates could be like the metallic logo updates where it will tell you if you have downloaded the latest update or not?

You can get started today and add the new adboards later. All graphic add-ons are fully save-game compatible 🙂

 

I'm eagerly waiting for the 2.Liga adboards too, in fact, and I'm carrying on with my save. At this rate, I'll be promoted before the update is released, but I don't mind 🙂

The bit in bold is hidden, you have to type it in manually in the address bar, then the parts that follow it will appear.

Hi there, 

It seems @rabcp  forgot to include the static adboard from my inter adboard update and only include the animated video adboards. 

You can get it here

https://www.mediafire.com/file/smvb47jy7rvj5bb/inter_adboards_fm21.zip/file

Just copy the inter folder from static_adboards to

Apologies for the lack of activity folks, life has been a bit hectic lately and since SI moved the goalposts with video ads, I have found motivation been hard to come by. I have been a lost in where to take this patch next, however, after some time away I have decided to work on a big overhaul of the patch between now and the release of FM22. This will include converting all video ads to the new format and removing all dead files. This may entail a rewrite of the xml file and through this process I can give some love the to the smaller leagues and give them a long overdue update as some leagues still use adboard’s which I made in 2009!

 

I will get round to answering the questions in the FAQ thread over the next few days, also thanks to everyone who has helped with technical support in my absence.

 

I’ll post a new W.I.P list at some point this week, which will include updates to EFL ads based on the adboard’s shown in the various playoff finals. Please not I will not be making any club adboard’s or updating any of the big 7 European nations until the 21/22 season starts.

Bonjour, j’ai fait comme indiqué mais cela ne fonctionne pas. J’utilise le thème OPZ Élite, est-il possible que ce thème bloque l’affichage des adboards ?


Merci d’avance pour votre réponse.
