As far as I'm aware the skin shouldn't have any effect on the boards

If the boards worked for you in FM13 that means that one of the following is most likely the problem, as the file still works in the same way

a) One of the settings in Preferences is not correct or b) the folders are incorrectly placed or named
Make sure all folders are named using just lowercase letters

I noticed you have 'show stadium' un-checked, some boards do appear amongst the stands in certain stadiums.
Try checking the box. Close FM, restart, reload skin and see what happens that could be the problem...

I try that already, but will try it again

I try it, but no luck I don't know what else to do...

The way the boards have appeared as black means its having trouble finding the boards.

If the settings were wrong then the default boards would show.
I've noticed in your folder layout - I can't see what's before the Sports Interactive folder
Make sure that its in your 'my documents/sports interactive' folder, rather than the program folder
FM2016 GOAL OF THE SEASON WINNER
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.



Yep i did, but nothing.... I don't know if it's skin's problem

Hi again, guys of Sortitoutsi. First, an aclaration, in the main pack of Chilean Primera Division, still is there some old adboards who are completely obsolete, i recommend delete the following adboards: entelpcs, empresas13, chile1, bancoestado, johnsons, goodyear, golazo, falabella, elmercurio and lan, all or there with last modified in 2009 and 2010. The xml contains only the files for the updated adboards, and the Adboards for Primera B is the correct (it contains updated adboards only).

And Second, i've started to make the adboards for the remaining teams for Chilean Primera Division, are finished Palestino, Universidad de Concepcion and Cobresal and actually is WIP Ñublense with an important logo missing, in the next days maybe in the weekend, i'll release a preview,.Also Started with Argentinean Primera Teams, for now are finished Colon de Santa Fe and River Plate, my objective is make the 20 clubs for Primera Division and update the National B.

Also and a ambicious objective maybe can make in the future (i'll stay in hiatus for an inportant time for summer vacations)

- Chile: Copa Chile (only has 4 adboards), and the Sponsors for Chilean National Team.
- Argentina: Copa Argentina and also the Sponsors for Argentinian National Team.
- Peru: Adboards for most important clubs plus update the actual adboards.
- Colombia: Same as Peru.
- Uruguay: Same as Colombia and Peru.
- and finally, update the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana adboards as both cups changed main sponsor in this year.
- Optionally can make adboards for any team i like in particular but is not my priority.

As always regards.

Before sports interactive folder, i have folder games in E... i have transfered sports interactive folder from my documents. Never have problem with older version of Fm with this, also all other graphics( kits, facepack, stadion pictures) is working ok.

E:\Games\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\ads (in ads folder i have fm.xml)

E:\Games\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\graphics\pictures\ads (in ads i have folders, africa, asia, default, europe, north america, oceania, south america, worldwide)

Where are the default boards?

Firstly the default boards I referred to are the boards SI use in the game if your not using any Ad pack (all charity & FM boards)

I think the file location could be the reason your having a problem.
My ad boards are in: C:\Users\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\

I would suggest relocating the folders to your My Documents folder and try that (Si have re-designed the game engine since FM13)

I go back to default location... load the game without pics, kits, facepack but still can't see the default boards. Try add the ads pack, i see only black boards...
I will download the game on my desktop pc, to see does the fresh install will help.
Don't You f.y.r.o.m. ME, Call Me By My Name Say Macedonia
I find out that something is missing in my game files...i play the game since the beta version, run all the updates but i guss something went wrong and some files are missing...
I install the game on my desktop pc, compare the game that i play on my laptop and find out that this version ( played since beta version with all updates) was missing this folder "props":
D:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2014\data\sigfx\props
This folder "props" contain folder "ads_board". This are the default boards in the game...
Now i'm gonna re-install the game on my laptop and try again (i'm sure that this time everything will work).

Hi guys!

First of all, let me give you my congratulation for this amazing Footbaal Manager Add-On! This is really well done and is a must-have every year that a new FM is released.
Secondly, I made for myself some new adboards for the portuguese competitions and I've uploaded them, so that you can replace the ones that are in the adboard pack. In the Cups folders (league and portuguese cup) are two adboard of the competition, and if you could put them centered in the middle of the pitch, like the champions league, it would be amazing!

Thanks for the superb job and keep it up!

Thanks, i finished 3 teams more, Ñublense and Santiago Wanderers for Chile (now 14/18), and Argentinos Juniors for Argentina (now 3/20), coming up next comes Antofagasta and Estudiantes de la Plata but not started yet because next days have tests in University.
Awesome work! I noticed that Chievo Verona has the generic boards, not the team ones, also with the correct xml of course...
Is something you have to fix or am I doing something wrong?
This black board in game.. could be a hardware problem (conflict with integrated video card) or windows 8.1? I try using very high detail and hardware rendering, also very low detail and software rendering. In both case i see black board in game
I m running of option here, try every possible combination...

(latest version: 20.11.2013)






====================================================
Installation of FM 2014 Ad Board Patch is not necessary but recommended.

Installation:
1. Copy "ads" & "graphics" from this download to your My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager main directory
5. Start game, clear cache and create new cache
6. Enjoy
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.

I have exactly the same problem, the structure looks identical, but not showing up, I am playing Leeds using Club ads, the sky bet board shows in league games and the Capital board shows in cu, but rest are generic
Then there is something wrong with the cache. I've checked the xml. Both, the xml and the graphics are okay. The script is working fine.
Sometimes you have to delete your cache and reload skin twice.
Everything is working now Re-install the game and steam for the second time, remove all the cache file in users account in C. Restart the game without extra graphics, leave settings in preferences default and i see now the default board sigames.
Then I add the extra graphics and ads board, made my settings in preferences (use very low graphics) and now i see the new ads boards

I put again my files in E:\Games\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\graphics\pictures\ads and everything is working OK. No need using the default folder C:\My documents

If someone is using zoom out 95% for size and text, u should change it to standard 100 % and you will see the ads board
The ads board pack and the default board are only show in game (not like black boards) if u are using standard 100 % for size and text in preferences.

Glad you managed to get it working and thanks for the info!

14.03 shall be out in the near future

Sortitoutsi have kindly offered to host the main patch going forward, so that your not downloading from external hosting sites.
This also means that the pack will be easier for people to find going forward!

I shall look it the Verona problem and also look into the Portugal update, both if required will be in 14.03
FM2016 GOAL OF THE SEASON WINNER
is this also for 2D display?

Apologies, but I have done everything and my structure looks correct, one question when you move the XML file to the ads folder, what do you do with the XML folders both of them??

You just keep it somewhere safe, so that if you ever wish to use the other XML you don't have to download it.
You could always delete it however... once you've moved the XML you want

Should you wish to watch in 2D then yes, you will still get ad-boards

I'm still on the first version but the German Super Cup seems to have the Italian Cup adboards...

Sorry if you've already fixed this.
