F.A.Q.

PC
1. Extract the contents of the rar folder to your desktop.

2. Move the ads folder to the following directory: My Documents /Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/graphics/pictures. This will now give you the following directory: My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/graphics/pictures/ads

3. Open up the My Documents /Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014 folder and create a new folder called 'ads' giving you the following directory My Documents /Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/ads

4. Move the 'Club adboards' and 'no club adboards' folder from your desktop to a new directory you make in My Documents /Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/ (The name doesn't matter)

5. Decide if you want to use the 'Club adboards' or 'no club adboards' once you have decided copy and paste the fm.xml file from 'club adboards' or 'no club adboards' folder to the ads folder you created earlier

Make sure both folder names are in lower case

You should now have the following folder structure.

http://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/p527/tv_capper/SIMON-LAPTOPTB/pic01_zpsc88294c8.png

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q. Why are there two different xml files?

A. As the folder names suggest one xml file contains club specific ad-boards and one doesn’t. This has been done as in previous patches people have complained that they see clubs specific ad-boards in cup competitions. Due the way the xml file there is no way around this using code. The only solution would be the use of two files.

For example say you are Arsenal and want Arsenal specific ad-boards in the Premiership and the Champions league ad-boards in the Champions League you would follow these steps;

1. Load up FM with the Club Specific config file in use
2. Play your league game (Arsenal ads will show)
3. Before your Champions League game Save and quit FM14
4. Replace the club specific config file with the non club config file.
5. Re boot FM14
6. Play your Champions League match (Champions League ads will show)

How to code ad-boards


Open up the ads.xml file located My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/ads

First of all you have to load the graphics into FM14 which is done by the following piece of code the near the bottom of the xml file

<!-- Hibernian adboards -->
<record id="2191" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/puma"/>
<record id="2192" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/skysports"/>
<record id="2193" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/espn"/>

What this code means

<!-- Hibernian adboards --> - Just identifies to whoever is reading the xml file what this piece of code is for competitions/clubs..

<record id="2191" - Assigns a unique id number to specific ad-board (you makes this number up but make sure it is not already in use elsewhere in the config)

path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/puma"/> - Location of the ad-board which has just been given a unique id number

The next bit of code determines where the previously assigned ad-boards will be displayed
<!-- Hibernian, rabcp -->
<list id="17">
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
.
.
.
<integer value="2191"/>
<integer value="2192"/>
<integer value="2193"/>
</list>

What this code means

<!-- Hibernian, rabcp --> - Just identifies to whoever is reading the xml file what this piece of code is for competitions/clubs along with the author of the adboards.

<list id="17"> - Unique id of the competition/clubs the ad-boards are for

<integer value="2191"/> - Positions adboard number 2191 in to be displayed for games in the assigned competition/club. This code needs repeated 44 more times as there are 45 adboard spaces on the maximum pitch size

I hope to be able to release smaller update packs after changes to avoid people having to re download the entire pack

You'll find you have better coverage if you switch to the club specific ad boards as that is the area where we have focused most of our attention so far.

The no club boards will show some default boards if there are not enough boards allocated to that league to give full coverage. This will be fixed in time but is not something that has a quick fix. I myself use the club boards, as even when playing in the English Premier League the clubs there still show their own specific ad-boards during match days (the club file will generally have some league specific boards too).

Can't make them work.... i see only black, no ads in game

Have you adjusted the game settings to get them to work?
Go to preferences:

uncheck use skin cache
uncheck clicking on ad board takes you to owners website
check reload skin on confirm.

Let me make this point CLEAR

The readme file states PLEASE DO NOT RE-DISTRIBUTE THIS PACK
which means NO RE-HOSTING

The reason that I know this is happening is two-fold
a) The pack contained intentional spelling errors left to spot any re-use
b) The download link has a download counter tracking download requests

I have found 'patches' elsewhere containing the same errors and even after removal here, the 14.01 pack is still being downloaded

DO NOT RE-HOST THE FILE LINK TO THE PAGE HERE, THIS MAKES SURE THEY HAVE THE LATEST VERSION & MAKES SURE THOSE INVOLVED GET CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK
