Hi guys,

Thanks again for your great work.
I'm having issues adding a picture into the config file. I created a new stadium (ID 98040206) for an existing team (ID 1114) using the database editor (not the in-game one). I want to assign the attached picture 1114.png to the stadium.
I put in the following lines into the xml :

<record from="1114" to="graphics/pictures/club/1114/background"/>
<record from="1114" to="graphics/pictures/team/1114/background"/>
<record from="1114" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/98040206/background"/>
<record from="1114" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/98040206/stadium"/>

I've also cleared the previous lines that used the 1114 ID.
Yet the picture doesn't show. It seems like it's something wrong with the lines I added to the xml or the picture because all other stadium pictures seem to be working.
Do you guys know what might be the problem here ?
Thanks a lot


Open the picture in paint and save as a .jpg file.

I can't do anything about that and @Footygamer is busy making the site ready for FM20. I'll make some sort of temporary solution until it's fixed

Can't believe how big this pack has become now, nearly 20000 pictures

Well done to everyone who has contributed to it.

Perfect, I'll give it a download later and see if it'll be alright with screenshots without looking too 'out of place' if i need to do two screenshots to fit a whole squad in for example it may not work very well. but worth a look.
Hi just loading these up with FM2020 and finding it quite unreadable with the new skins - playing as Mansfield Town for example the skin overlays a lot of green and yellow text onto the stadium and pitch.

Has anyone got any tips for using these stadium graphics in FM2020? Is there a way to reduce the background brightness?
Yeah it's really hard to read the screen if the writing is in white
Hi,
How can i download every Stadium Backgrounds?
In download full pack says 9,91 gb,but when i open the mega link,download only 1.77gb.
Anybody knows how to download it please? The only available link is to MEGA.NZ, but I have been trying in the last few days and also with different browsers, I am never able to reach the site. I would only need the latest changes but I cannot get them thanks for your help!
This should work though not quite the full pack https://mega.nz/#!AmhhHRhQ!MBM4Mn_zuXQdATmeSZJs5ip3YJIReH-Z35m8uKbcqRw

Thanks! It kept returning me a message of "the site cannot be reached" but eventually I found a workaround by installing the "mega" extension to chrome. After that, I was able to reach the site and download the latest changes. Hope this helps if anybody else has troubles with that

Thank you for your assistance and quick reply!

Anybody who can answer the question above? I got the same issue using the original skin. The backgrounds are way too light. It is impossible to read the white texts :-)

Hi I am currently running FM19 and have downloaded the sortitoutsi Google Maps Backgrounds Megapack but it does not load into the game. I have also done the Facepacks, the kitpacks and the metallic logos . They all work no problem at all.
I also never seem to be able to download and use the various tactics posted on here. These come in an FMF file which I am unable to use.

The tactics do not worry me as I can create them myself with a bit of work, but I would love to get the stadiums in the background if possible.
Also I gave noticed player profile pages with much bigger photos. Is this just using a different skin? Or is it a different face pack ?

Last question I promise ;-)
I am going to purchase FM2020 and can I just transfer my graphics folder to the new FM20 folder which I presume is created .........or is it as simple as just renaming my folder Football Manager and making sure my new FM20 save goes to there.
Any guidance appreciated

Player profile pictures with bigger photos will be visible when using a different skin.

If you are on a PC, you can easily transfer your FM19 graphics to the equivalent FM20 folder. If you're on a Mac, the process is slightly different.

The only difference between versions are kits, for obvious reasons. Though you may wish to use 18/19 kits in FM20, they won't really be the same as those in real life.

Excellent thank you. I have used the new kit pack so it may be up to date for FM20 .
Any idea why my stadium backgrounds do not work . They are in the graphics folder along with the facepacks and kit packs. The face packs and kit packs are visible but the stadium backgrounds are not
Hi! I've downloaded the pack, but i have a problem. I'm using Andromeda skin in FM 18, with default skin this trouble doesn't happen.

In the following picture you can see the problem.


https://i.imgur.com/LvTNFPP.jpg


I think is something related with badge folder, i'm using metallic ones. It's something related with "back right" or "back left" folder.

I'll be grated if someone knows how to fix that.

I'm not sure if this is an issue since the latest update to the Google Maps background pack, but any teams that do not have an image in the pack for their city pic, have a picture of the national team stadium in its place and also as the background for the team.

Is this how it's supposed to be for teams that do not have a city pic in the pack?

Any ideas @vp

I'm trying to add in an additional stadium to a pack I currently have. I'm however struggling with the editing of the XML file and despite my best efforts, I'm not getting anywhere.

The club and stadium in question is Norwich United (ID 8325048) and Plantation Road (ID 8600638). The picture in question is saved under a 'teams' folder with the title of '8325048'. I've edited the XML file for it to appear as follows;
<record from="teams/8325048" to="graphics/pictures/club/8325048/background"/>
<record from="teams/8325048" to="graphics/pictures/team/8325048/background"/>
<record from="teams/8325048" to="graphics/pictures/club/8325048/logo/background/left"/>
<record from="teams/8325048" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/8600638/background"/>
<record from="teams/8325048" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/8600638/stadium"/>

I am however having no luck getting it to change within football manager, despite that code being the exact same to another team which the pack changes. I have unchecked caching and reloaded and changed the size of the photo in question to a size of other pictures within the file with still no luck. The picture in question is this;
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-S6TOqqPsIHw/U10qc6bGrEI/AAAAAAAAM6s/xyhcb7y-PwI/s1600/101_6872.JPG

I'm assuming it will be an easy fix as I am not experienced with this thing, but any help would be appreciated!


So I had this problem around 6 months ago and it was fixed as the picture was .JPEG rather than in lower case .jpeg or .png.
I'm basically having the same problem again however with a new picture.
The team in question being FC Vaduz (ID 572002) and stadium Rhein Park Stadion (ID 129503). I've added this picture (attached below) in and given it a file name of '1234567'. I've edited the XML to look like this and have also resized the picture to another size and tried both .png and .jpeg formats.

<record from="teams/1234567" to="graphics/pictures/club/5720002/background"/>
<record from="teams/1234567" to="graphics/pictures/team/5720002/background"/>
<record from="teams/1234567" to="graphics/pictures/club/5720002/logo/background/left"/>
<record from="teams/1234567" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/129503/background"/>
<record from="teams/1234567" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/129503/stadium"/>



If anyone can solve my stupidity again it would be appreciated.

Hello from Vienna
I have now uploaded 208 pictures for Austrian clubs in the 3 third leagues and 9 fourth leagues :-)

Still a question, I have already loaded the Megapack 2 times, but if I want to load the update, I should load the Megapack first, but I already have 2 ... DONE

THANKS to everyone who works on the pictures!

Greetings from Vienna
