Thanks for all the new content guys to give an update on the coding for V1.4 so far

Czech Republic

FIFA World Cup
Russia Football League - all ads also need resized

I should have a lot more time this coming week so hoping for a release before next weekend

Update: The Russian club ads are in a format that can’t be opened so will no longer be included, just the World Cup ads to code now before a release

Fantastic job guys. Well done and thanks to everyone that contributed.
Some people will say this is just cosmetic and doesn't affect the gameplay but they are soooooo wrong. It just adds so much to the game experience when you visit a new stadium and see personalised ads for that club.
I can't wait to get into the English Premier to see what the adboards look like and European games... well that's a way off, I have been stuck in the Championship for 3 seasons but even more excited to see those.
Thanks again it is so much appreciated by so many people.
Indeed, great job!

Where should I install the files too?

XML files




Why are there two different xml files?

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 FM17
4. Replace the club specific config file with the non club config file.
5. Re-start FM17
6. Play your Champions League match (Champions League ads will show).

Why are my video adboards are black?
This issue here is down to what I believe is a bug in the game. In FM17 when clubs had no video adboards assigned to them they loaded static adboards into the video adboards slots instead, for some reason FM18 is not doing this and just displays dead video adboards, the below image shows the difference between FM17 & FM18

Why are my video adboards no ??
Another Report from mine:

In Argentina i've finished 12 of the 28 teams, more to come soon, and is possible take also the Promoted Teams for 2018-2019 season (Aldosivi and San Martin de Tucuman). also, is least probably the chance to make Peruvian, Colombian and Uruguayan Adboards, because i'll start to work next weekend and the internet connection is unstable in the place i'll working, for now i'll try to finish Argentina, and their National Team. Maybe can Make also Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana because both tournaments has their own sponsors.

Updated adboards for York City;

Do you perhaps know the equivalent folder on a Mac?

I have reproduced the Sam FM board (found in the english generic boards folder) as I wasn't happy with the quality
Here is the new HQ replacement

So I just installed this mod, and in the next home match I played suddenly my conference team (Salford) has a second tier to their stadium???? Anyone know why this would have happened and how to undo it?
Here are some Salford City ads that I made. They are from their new stadium.

Russian adboards in France
Hi mate, Spanish Segunda/Liga 1-2-3 is showing like this. Any idea on how to fix this. Cheers
fantastic job ! really, thank you for sharing your great work !!
Hey rabcp,

Do you happen to know the breakdown of how many video files before it will revert to the next step..? How many assigned to the club before it starts using the competition assigned, and then the default?
These adboards dont work here, in apears ony football manager 2008 logo

ps: i cleared the cache and restart the skin but the bug continues...
my first attempt at a vid


used most of the guide but in Sony Movie Vegas instead.
Sorry for the lack of updates, I'll post something to cover all issues brought up over the past few weeks at some point tonight

The mod in no way effects stadium appearance.

English please, we dont understand what I presume is Russian
It looks like pretty much most of it seeing as this pack was used as a starting point. The creator himself states:
"All thanks to rabcp for allowing me to integrate their excellent video adboards into this mod, and to the creator of the original config file that I modified for my FM14 release, tv_capper. Their work focused on integrating corporate ads into the adboards, while mine does more club-specific fan imagery"

Cheers, wasnt sure which one to start with as this seems to be updated more often than that one.. having a go meslf at adding a few..

Positioning Adboard's

I was asked by @wkdsoul if it was possible to position adboards in certain positions and thought I'd put together this tutorial to demonstrate how its done. While is it possible to place adboards in certain positions it mainly works with clubs who use pitch side LCD ads. The process is a little complex as bar the pitchside adboards the adboard numbers at times follow no logical pattern and can repeat numbers depending on the stadium model.

The support files in this link are needed for this method - Download

Step One
We have the Juventus stadium displaying generic adboards, however we want to place a fan banner in the middle of the goal, to do this we have to know how to assign adboards to certain positions

Install the attached graphic files and open up the ads.xml file in the football manager folder and the XML Insert LCD file from the download. in the XML Insert LCD file locate the following code;

<!-- Club section for club ID #661 -->
<list id="1139">
<integer value="3500"/>
<integer value="661000"/>
<integer value="661001"/>

Change the <list id="1139"> code to include your clubs ID number, paste this into the Ads.xml file and load up FM18 again, Our match with Juventus now looks like this;

We now have adboards which tell us which number each adboard is within the xml file, note that not all adboards are unique and adboard '0' will be repeated 3 times on this screen.

Step Two
We now need to assign our banners to correct positions. My code here assigns my 3 new adboards to the game (See the guide on page 1 for more detailed instructions).
<!-- Juventus ads -->
<record id="8000" path="pictures/ads/generic/black"/>
<record id="8001" path="pictures/ads/europe/italy/clubs/juventus/drughi"/>
<record id="8002" path="pictures/ads/europe/italy/clubs/juventus/sud"/>

I want a plain black adboard to display at adboard '0' and my banners behind the goal, in this case Drughi as adboard '32' and Sud as adboard '31'.

We now go back to our first piece of code to place these 3 new boards in there correct position, we know that <integer value="661000"/> represents adboard '0' so we change this to <integer value="8000"/>, likewise we change <integer value="661031"/> adboard '31' to <integer value="8002"/> 'Drughi' and <integer value="661032"/> adboard '32' to <integer value="8001"/> 'Sud'
<!-- Juventus -->
<list id="1139">
<integer value="3500"/>
<integer value="8000"/>
<integer value="661001"/>
<integer value="8002"/>
<integer value="8001"/>

load up FM18 and we get this result
Much appreciated. I'll give it a bash

ok, got the idea.. (i think)

I presume the reverse it true, i could jsut overwrite the '0' board image with the one i want and leave the xml as is?

Yes and that would just repeat the '0' adboard over and over
Yes and that would just repeat the '0' adboard over and over

Got the idea (vid above) now to find some better images and decide how i want it, tried to make the fans corner in the above and the usual 'commerical' main stand look... but least i get how it works under the hood.
Hello FM family ,

since a few days I have a problem ...

I use for a few months Videos adboards without ever having a problem.

But for 2-3 days, when I start a game, the first Adboard video appears, and then, nothing happens, the adboard remains fixed, it does not scroll, and other adboards never appear.

I don't understand why because i changed nothing...

Can someone help me?
