Graphics Folder is in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017

as for the HD ones they are in the steam location.

In the Old Firm game the adboards was just black.
As for my Billericay Town FC save currently playing in National League South still showing up the original default adboards


Double check which xml file you are using and post the exact location of your video ads as it looks like the game is unable to find them

The locactions look correct assuming all video ads are in the HD folder and not the SD one? Have you tried clearing the graphics cache and reloading the skin in the FM17 preferences section. Also are you sure you have the latest xml file?
are we going to see the last epl ads Rab?
sorry for asking

sorry for asking


I'm waiting for a week or two into the new season before finishing them off and updating the first few clubs.
Hi Rab
is it possible that you do the ads of bayern munich?

Got it sorted had the graphic fold named as Graphic, however the FA Trophy games are only coming up as TheFA.com and the Kickitout one and not the forall one
Looking for help with this small problem.
I have install everything and have the video boards working fine.

The only problem I have is I only get this for the team with no video boards.
Link here...
I have all the normal boards install but none of them are showing.

Any help would be great.

This is down to an error in the xml file, it'll be fixed in the next update

Do you have the original FM16 adboard pack installed? I'm guessing not. I've only released the packs as update pack so they only cover the competitions covered on the first post. You really need the latest FM16 adboard pack installed with the 3 for FM17 then added as updates, all links are in the first post.

Whats planned for the next update because the Northern Ireland really does need a overhaul
Sensational work mate.

Thanks for all of the positive comments everyone.

I just played the Community Shield with Manchester United against Leicester City. But I only see the dynamic adboard from Gatorade and Pepsi.
When I check the FM.xml which is in /Users/Rick/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2017/ads folder .. I see a lot more video_adboards for the Community Shield.

<!-- English Community Shield ads -->
<record id="2082" path="video_ads/england/community shield/cs" animated="true"/>
<record id="2083" path="video_ads/generic/ladbrokes" animated="true"/>
<record id="2084" path="video_ads/england/generic/lidl" animated="true"/>
<record id="2085" path="video_ads/england/community shield/mcdonalds" animated="true"/>
<record id="2086" path="video_ads/england/generic/ee" animated="true"/>

The video's are within the folders:
  • /Users/Rick/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2017/data/sigfx/videos/hd/video_ads/england/community shield
  • /Users/Rick/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2017/data/sigfx/videos/hd/video_ads/generic
Any idea how to fix this? Because the strange thing is, the Gatorade and Pepsi adboards aren't being mentioned above, for the Community Shield adboards.

/edit: uhhh.. just played my first Premier League game. Home at Old Trafford (with Man Utd) against Everton and again, only the Gatorade and Pepsi adboards....

You don’t have video ads in the correct location the correct path for the video ads is; C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\sigfx\videos\hd\video_ads

It also sounds as if you have the static ads in the wrong location too, they should be in the following path; C:\Users\robbi\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\pictures\ads

There is a bit of a bug within the game with any supercup adboards as for some reason the game looks to load the home team’s adboards instead of being treated as a neutral game.
The adboards look pretty fine, but i see that for the norwegian pack th club-adboards, there is something strange.All the umbro adboards (should be unique for all the clubs) are replaced by a standard umbro board. "the one with a logo plus 3 boots".

When I code adboards I look to use a master copy of adboards where possible as it saves on file size and makes updating a lot easier. I looked to give the Norwegain clubs who use proper Video ads in real life the umbro master file, however if this style isnt used by Norweigan clubs I can change it back in the next update if you wish?

That would be great
I've been working on a new xml file for FM18 and in the process have updated 31 competition adboards. I'm hoping to start working on the reamining EPL clubs once again after this weekends round of fixtures, below is a sample of some of the new boards (these boards wont be released intill the first FM18 patch)

Excellent work rab.....look forward to using these in FM18
