There can be an issue when rewatching highlights of matches played before the patch is installed, SI have made a number of changes to the way adboards are used within FM21 and IMO none of these changes are positive, best way to test is in a new fixture you have yet to play as opposed to highlights of a previosuly played game.

Good evening,

When I play matches in the French L2 championship, I only have static panels and no video ... except once during a Toulouse match.

I tried club.xml or no club.xml, it doesn't change anything.

Do you have an idea ?

Thanks in advance.

If the games only show static ads it’s because the clubs involved and Ligue 2 has too low a reputation to display video ads, if there are black video ads displaying then it is an installation issue.

Possible, because Toulouse come from L1 and not the other teams. I'll try tomorrow and tell you.

Thanks to you.

Thanks, the issue is related to Ligue 2 and its clubs having too low a reputation to display video ads, I have video ads for Ligue 2 on my WIP, once they are made, I will change the xml file to force display video ads for Ligue 2 matches.

3. Open up the xml folder on your desktop and copy the ‘ads’ folder into this directory:

PC: My documents/sports interactive/football manager 2021

I did and now i have 2 folders : Club and No Club. So far so good

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

 

So i need to pick 1 in those 2 maps and paste in the root of “Ads” right? 

 

 

Edit :

 

 

 

Got that working. But the video ads are single purple colour :/

So I've reviewed all of the comments above, but despite following all of the steps I have black/blank video ad boards and the standard game static boards. What am I doing wrong? There's no issue with the laptop, it's high spec Erazer gaming notebook P6605 with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card and the game settings are up at high for graphics. So I assume it's a folder issue somewhere.

Yes, so graphics and ads folders into the attached path. Then i copied one of the fm files from “clubs” into the ads folder as attached. I'd already completed the bidstack instruction from the V1.0 pack too so included the folder where that is. Really appreciate any help you can give, as this mod really makes the game!

Thanks and you’re welcome 👍🏼

 

Can you also provide screenshots of exactly where the static and video ads have been installed too, all I can tell from what you have posted is that the xml file is in the correct location.

Perfect, so the good news is everything is where it should be.

 

I’m sure you have already tried this but ensure the graphics cache is off in the Football Manager preferences menu and try reloading your skin

I've deselected “use caching to decrease page loading times”, clicked the clear cache button and reloaded the skin. Still doesn't work, so i think i've exhausted all options. 😢

I’m sure that someone else had this issue and it was resolved by reinstalling FM21, just ensure that  you back up all saves, tactics etc first.

Guess it needed a reboot 😛

This is wrong the pictures folder should be as below, also all folders need to be in lower case, no capital letters

Hi @rabcp ! I just discovered your work and it's amazing! Thank you very much!

 

I'm currently managing Vitoria de Guimaraes in Portugal and there's no club adboards like your Man U example. Any explanation?
