So the game only crashes when you rewatch a previously played game?

Also I asked you to try this without the xml file

I have balck ads, don't know why - maybe sb could help me ? 🙂


In FM21 open the preferences menu and open up the match tab and ensure that the match graphics quality is set to at least medium, but high or very high is best.

In screenshot 51, you have the video ads in the steam folder found in 'programme (x86)/common files/' the is the wrong location the steam folder needed is the one in the below image

Yes ‘Programme (x86)’ is the same as ‘program files (x86)’, place the files into the steam folder in this location

I'm using a Mac, tried to overlay these files, and also downloaded the full pack from scratch and can't get it to work - it just plays these default video ads no matter what the competition (on both club and non-club XML files).

<record id="105" path="video_ads/generic/emirates" animated="true"/>
<record id="106" path="video_ads/generic/adidas" animated="true"/>
<record id="107" path="video_ads/generic/bet365" animated="true"/>
<record id="108" path="video_ads/generic/yokohama" animated="true"/>
<record id="109" path="video_ads/generic/enter" animated="true"/>


The FM20 aboard patch worked perfectly.

If I use this FM21 aboard patch, with the FM20 XML file, it works.

It's as soon as I drop in the new FM21 XML file, it just plays the default video ads.

Can't figure out for the life of me what's wrong?

For now, I've gone back to the FM20 files.

So,

• FM20 adboards worked in FM21.
• I downloaded V21.1 and added to the current FM20 aboards - didn't work
• I then downloaded the full FM21 1.19Gb file and started from scratch - didn't work

To test it, as soon as I swap the FM21 fm.xml out and add the FM20 fm.xml back in, it works and plays the video ads intended for that competition.

Basically, with the FM21 XML file (club and no-club), it's plays the same 5 generic video ads (emirates, Adidas, bet365, yokohama, enter) over and over again and not playing them by competition. Static ads record in just fine.

No modifications. Every competition in England plus Super Cup so far...

It's like there is something in both XML files that is just looping the same 5 generic video adboards, or overriding.

I'm on a Mac, and not sure if anyone else has experienced this either? Can only presume it's clashing with another add on, maybe?

It’s not an issue I have ever heard off, it sounds like the game is failing to find the video files so it is just playing the generic video files on loop. However, if that was the case you would experience the same when using the FM20 xml file.

What other addons are you using? Also are you using any new data files? It might be that competition ID’s have somehow changed

I've just tried a brand new vanilla save, no add ons whatsoever except this, and it's still the same problem unfortunately (so it can't be a clash with other files). Must be something within the 2x FM21 xml files.

The XML from V1.4 in here works perfectly: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/51987/fm20-adboard-patch-coming-soon

The code at the beginning of your FM20 xml and FM21 xml are slightly different, don't know if it's anything to do with that.

I’ll take a look at the xml files this evening, this may be the issue as there should be no differences in the early part of the code.

Yeah this opening part is different in the XML's - In FM20 the code starts at 101 with the static ads, but in FM21 the code starts at 105 but with the video ads):

Why are my static adboard’s now showing as bands of colour?
https://i.postimg.cc/28L1CjZQ/error-2.png
This error occurs when FM cannot find the correct static ads, ensure the static ads are the following location:
PC - Documents/Sports Interactive/football manager 2021/graphics/pictures/ads
MAC - Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/football manager 2021/graphics/pictures/ads

Also Ensure that the path (graphics/pictures/ads) contains only lowercase characters.

I tried that too but, I've completely uninstalled FM21 then reinstalled it, and it looks likes it's working - must have been something buggy with the game going on - I'll be playing all night tonight so I'll see if any issues crop up - thanks for your time today though and offering help!

Hi rabcp, I'm currently on with a Spurs save so wouldn't mind the upper-static-ads being the Spurs banners (like you've done for Manchester United, Chelsea etc) with the competition video adboards around the pitch.

Here's my code (I've linked to you 4 static Spurs ads):



No worries if not, just thought I'd ask.

In the second part of your code you have removed the code for the video ads, this needs to be pasted above the code for the static ads


<integer value="3928"/>
<integer value="3929"/>
<integer value="3930"/>
<integer value="3931"/>
<integer value="3932"/>
<integer value="3933"/>
<integer value="3934"/>
<integer value="3935"/>
<integer value="3936"/>

As no video ads are coded to display, the generic ads are displaying by default.
