Hello,

I resinstalled everything, following the instructions carefully. Unfortunately the problem is still there.

With the file: "no club". The adboards are black in UEFA European competitions (UCL/EL) but in the national championship everything is fine.

 

It's a shame because I really prefer to play with the "no club".  Could there be an error in the file?

Thanks

Hi rabcp,

My video ads are not showing in my game. It's for a created club. They are located in the following folder (I'm on mac) so

…/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2021/data/simwatcherviewer_uncompressed/videos/hd/video_ads/england/clubs/redbull london.

There are 9 video ads, numbered in the fm.xml file starting 33600 upwards (those numbers do not clash with any others).

They are then assigned to my club (id 2000066283)  in the fm.xml. The game picks up the static ads created for this club but not the video ones. Any ideas as to why please?

Cheers

I have one problem, i using this patch some time and now - when i play match in europe supercup or english comunity shield,in match doesn´t show static adbord - other competitions adbord work (i using no club)

 

For these games it is best to use the ‘no clubs’ fm.xml file as there is an issue with the game and Football Manager treats the games as a home/away match and not a netural game.

Thank you, keep in mind when playing with a MAC folder locations are different, is this the Steam folder you are referring too?

It does, actually, but the instructions are for the Steam folder generally, given the simatchviewer_uncompressed folder is contained within it. It's at this point in the video too:

 

5. Place the steam folder into the following directory;

PC: C:\Program Files (x86)
 

https://i.postimg.cc/zvYmxMGz/steam.png

MAC: Macintosh HD/Users/myusername/Library/Application Support

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

 

The below is what the folder should look like:

Hi All

 

I dont know what I'm doing wrong, bearing in mind a previous version for 21 was working fine, but now I get no Video ads, just black image. I've been through it all twice, even changed the folder to “SD” and I can't get them to work.

 

Can anyone see an error here I'm missing?

 

Edit! Sorted. Inside simmatchviewer_uncompressed was a SD and a HD Folder inside the Videos folder. The HD folder had just 3 folders. Just copied and pasted the folders from SD in there. I Have my Ads back. Awesome!

Hey all - anyone knows how to put a video ad on an upper-tier stand on FM? Similar to the upper-tier ad boards at Spurs/Man city stadium?

hi @rabcp 
I'd like to ask you one thing about xml.
when my team had created a small adboard patch FM20, we found out the location of the static ads on the first floor of the stadium can be designated and used it.


<see image please>


of course, we found that the number of static ads exposed to the first floor was different for each stadium.
So we used the method of defining and registering static ads only for that number.
through this, we tried to prevent random output from each game.

and, the xml method we used only worked in the ground floor stadium.
No matter how much i adjusted "edge_type" and "edge_index", it didn't work on the second floor or higher.

and now, the positioning of static ads is not work at all in FM21.
Do you happen to you, I have to know about this part. thank you

this is image file, about "edge_type" and "edge_index".

 

in FM20,

north : edge_type 0

south : edge_type 2
east : edge_type 3

west : edge_type 1

 

and edge index. It's counterclockwise, each section

Hi,

 

For some reason the adverts don't appear within the stands?? It's just a multi-coloured line. The adverts banner close to the pitch does work ok on non-clubs but black for clubs. Anyone got any ideas?? I've checked all the folders and files are in the correct place, and I've over written them all with the latest update. Graphics are very high with 5 star rating, and I've deleted the cache and reloaded the skin etc too. 

 

Thanks

I've been back creating some ads to go alongside a few saves i've done so far. Everything's coded by myself and confirmed working bar Stockport County. I've included all the ads made (for use in the pack anyway) with a .txt of all the additions made. Can anyone point out in the broken Stockport txt file why it gives me the classic FM08 ads as I can't see what's wrong for the life of me.

I am really excited to have these ad boards in my game. I have followed the instruction a few times now and i still just get the 2008 football manager ad board around the edge of the pitch and no images on the upper stands banners, i have installed the V.10 and V1.1 update as instructed,  now granted my team is Aldershot (in the English Vanarama National League) and i cannot see specific ad boards for that team in the files, but i thought maybe the generic ones would kick in their place. I should also mention my FM21 game saves all the games etc to a slightly different area than the usual. Mine is in C: drive-users-username-Sports interactive-Football manager 2021etc.  but FM2021 also created another folder in  C:drive-documents-Sports interactive- Football manager 2021 folder as well. This other folder seems redundant and will not let me save any games to it. Does that have any impact on this ad board mod? I thought i would be a clever sod and put all the relevant files in both sports interactive folders but the results are still the same. Any help you can give would be much appreciated as the time and effort you have put into this mod makes the match game days look even better. I stand by to send you screenshots.

 

Also is this were i beg for some ad boards for the Aldershot stadium?

 

Cheers

There must be a mistake in the code you added to the xml file

You need to use the method in the 3rd post of the below thread.

I can’t see any errors in your code, ran it through FM17 which was the last version to debug the xml and it flagged no issues.

@rabcp 
I understand what yousay. however, the proposed method is not good.

As far as I know, in the club version,
Depending on the number of static ads defined in the stadium as interger value,
the location also changes every time.

Suppose use a static ad with numbers to locate each part. like the method in the 3rd post. 
but if we replace the place where zeros go in with “real ads”, you'll know that multiple zeros are applied simultaneously.
This isn't the way I think it is.

In FM20, the concept of defining “edge types” and “edge indexes" means that each location is assigned directly, and "independently.”


we found this way in fm20, and it was possible. its real. 

I have yet to find the application in FM21.
But edge type, edge index, is not something we newly created, but something that we didn't know existed in the original xml file.
I think there is a secret here.
