hi see attached , thanks again appreciate your help  

The xml file works so that’s not the issue and I can’t see any issue with your folders, the video ads are in the correct location. Can you provide a screenshot of your graphic settings within the FM preferences?

I think that may be the issue, are the static ads working?

This has me stumped as I can’t see any errors, I’m assuming that you are playing on a windows system through steam?

Yes , so i moved my cache and preferneces folders out and started a new save , so on a inter freindly the ad boards worked , however on the next game they stopped working! - i went back to look at the reserves/freindly highlights and yes stopped working - it doesnt make sense unless the graphics  card is playing up?

It looks like the issue is FM either cannot find the video ads or is unable to load them, however, they are installed in the correct location and you have tried playing about with graphic settings. Maybe it might be worth trying to reload the skin and turn off the cache under the skin menu in FM's preferences but in all honesty with that I am clutching at straws as I cannot understand why is it not working, as I cannot see any errors on your part

Yep static ads working - shouldn't make any difference to where I have put Steam as long as my root address is correct and it is otherwise games wouldn't function at all

All sorted now - think was a conflict with an old STEAM folder I hadn't removed. Boards look great now!

Just noticed that some boards seem in wrong place in ground/stadium and some half cut off.

Am I able to move the boards around somehow to fix this?

Main one I've noticed is my home ground - Leeds - as it has the names of the stands on the side boards and some longer boards half cut off

I am assuming this is the issue, unfortunately it is down to the stadium model used by FM so other than moving the stand names off centre there is no way to fix it

Yeah I knew about this, but issues occurring on some of the ground level ads.

Pic 1 - Names of stands appearing in ground level ads opposite dugouts

Pic 2 - Name of stand again on ground level and cut off

 

Know it's nitpicking a lttle at great work but can get annoying as you get distracted at looking at this!!

Your Leeds ground is different to mine, have you had a stadium expansion?

All stadium models are consistent across the game, otherwise there would be no point in coding ads to certain positions if stadium models varied from person to person. Therefore, unless you have a data file that has modified Elland Road’s capacity or have a file that changes the appearance of stadium models I’ve no idea why you are seeing a different stadium model to me. In this instance the only fix would be to completly recode the static ads within Elland Road which can be a tedious process.

I've not added any file to change stadium appearance….never mind…..it's only a small issue!

Unfortunately, all I can suggest is a reinstall of Football Manager to see if that helps, the only other issue I can think of is if you have multiple hard drives and parts of FM21 are installed onto more than one drive?

I have never known this to happen so it is bizarre to say the least, if you want to try recoding there is a guide for this here;

There is no reason why the video ads should not work, your system can handle video ads, I can see no issue with the file paths and the xml file works, I’d recommend a reinstall of FM to see if that fixes the issue, just be sure to back up any saved games etc

Hi thanks for all the hard work on the addon, I can't get either the static or video ads to work. I tried all the fixes in the FAQ and in this thread. Renaming to SD, making sure the path for the video files is in the right place but nothing has worked. I'm getting club colours instead of static ads and black screen for video ads.
