Hi Ive had one issue installing version 1.3. One of the video files named Adidas had special permission rights that prevented me from copying it over. Can you suggest a solution?
The video ads for my swedish club are all black so I was wondering if it's possible to copy some video ads created for another team and code them to my team? I have some .ivf-files like nike, carlsberg etc. I want to use, can somebody help me?

Try right clicking the Adidas ad, properties and deselect read only

The video ads for my swedish club are all black so I was wondering if it's possible to copy some video ads created for another team and code them to my team? I have some .ivf-files like nike, carlsberg etc. I want to use, can somebody help me?

How to code Video Adboards


Open up the ads.xml file located My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2018/ads

First of all you have to load the graphics into FM18 which is done by the following piece of code the near the top of the xml file

<!-- Hibernian ads, rabcp -->
<record id="2190" path="video_ads/scotland/clubs/macron" animated="true"/>
<record id="2191" path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/marathonbet"/>
<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

<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="video_ads/scotland/clubs/macron" animated="true"/> Location of a video adboard which has just been given a unique id number

path="pictures/ads/europe/clubs/scotland/spl/hibernian/marathonbet"/> - Location of a static adboard 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="1575">
<integer value="2190"/>
<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.

No as Hibernian play in a ground under 30,000 static adboards will display automatically as below;
https://s26.postimg.cc/ppkjl6rex/no_video.png


To allow Hibernian to display Video ads the following piece of code needs added at the bottom of the xml file, this can also been done for competitons or international teams;
<!-- All Hibernian home matches have to use LED -->
<record id="1575" led_force_flag="true" concatenate_next="true"/>


This code then turns on video ads and gives the below result
https://s26.postimg.cc/qqksab8eh/video.png

Hi, does that mean with the patch of them all the old ones from Doc Devil anymore?
Can you install it yourself?
Since he has made many for the lower leagues of the Bundesliga

You can only work one adboard patch at a time you would need to add Doc Devil’s Ads and then code them manually to the xml file to get them to work

Weird request but could someone give me a guide of how to get these to work on fm17?

I know the stadium models are different but I mainly just want to get the video ads working normally as I know the file structure is different from 17 to 18.

If anybody could help me it would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I’m at work right now so can’t 100% confirm but from what I remember you just need to rename the “simatchviewer_uncompressed” folder to “sigfx” to get the video adboards to work for FM17
