That looks like the issue then, Football Manager must be unable to load files from your D drive


Kits are loading my logos and player images only the ones did not bind

That’s because the game loads them from your my documents and not a C drive, adboards are much more complex

The adboards structure changed with FM18
Like Kosic has pointed out your folder structures are wrong, adboards config files work different to ones for kits and logos and therefore need to named correctly and all in lower case characters


My Steam along with the game installed on the disk E
e:\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2018\

The path to the folder with graphics, changed with the help of a line(--user_data_location="e:\FM2018\" when starting games from Steam and now it's here
e:\FM2018\
I played with the files last night followed all instructions after resolving the names on kits issue. All files in the right places. Is there a conflict between the video ads and static ones as mentioned earlier in this thread?
E.g. those clubs that have both video ads and static.

Theres no conflict. I tested the patch before releasing it, as long as it’s installed according to the instructions and screenshots it will work, it seems that the only people having issues have not installed FM18 to there C drive so I believe that’s what is causing there issue
Okay will try again. So if installed correctly you get video ads running with club adboards in game. Use Ipswich town as an example?

No the only clubs who have video ads are the English Premiership Clubs, the first page lists which clubs and competitions have video ads
Sure is there default video ads that can be used then? I can get the club static adboards working, but not the video ones. Some clubs in the championship have them?
Sorry for being a pain. If not no worries.
Many thanks.

For some reason FM still loads up video boards for clubs which don’t have video adboards assigned to them (Sheff Utd is one example that springs to mind) however video adboards can be assigned to any club by editing the xml file

Hmm... would it be possible to apply some sort of "static" video boards for those teams lacking actual video boards? (I am not at all familiar with the technical side of FM's adboards, but as soon as I read about the issue you mentioned, I began wondering if the game could be tricked into showing so-called video boards that would actually still be static ad boards.) Could that be easy to do and could that provide an easy fix?

Just brainstorming here.

Yes it’s possible but as off yet none have been made that are suitable for the Championship in due course I’m sure some will be produced and some Championship clubs will have video adboards
hello my friend

Why is this situation happening to me, are all ads black?

only clubs that do not have video are correct.

thanks

Your screenshot is too small so I can’t really see what isn’t working? Which teams/competitons are not working for you?

only happens in teams that have dynamic adboards

Leeds don’t have any video adboards coded to them which is why they are not displaying, for some reason FM still loads up the boards for some clubs who don’t have in game video ads instead of the static pitch side adboards

which stadium has video ads is hard coded. So you cant disable or enable them.
The solution is to have at least on line of videoads for the teams that play in such stadiums, and if there is not a specific club adboard then must be added to the league lines ads.
I tested it with greek superleague and is working

You can disable video ads through code via the xml file but it looks like you would need to this separately for each club. Just giving every club/competition a line of code with video ads isn’t really much of a work around

How we can disable it. I think that the existance and the positions follow the stadium. You know how to disable it?
rabcp please when are you gonna update patch fm18 adboards ?
Hi Rabcp thanks for all the hardwork on these adboards, they look great and are working fine. Like a couple other posters I've lost names/numbers in the 3d match. I just wanted to clarify this is a bug on SI part or is it something that we can fix?
I gave up on these ads cos i followed evey step on numerous occassions and i couldnt get them to work.
Thanks a lot for your great adboards. But I have no names/conditions in the 3d match. Can you fix it?
I’m going to post an FAQ over the weekend as people are experiencing the same issues. It looks as if video ads are very bugged this year which is causing a lot of these issues
any chance of doing a new everton video ad please has the other is out of date many thanks
F.A.Q

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

Iv'e lost jersery names and numbers in the 3D engine?
This is down to a bug and hopefully SI will resolve this soon.
To get numbers to appear its a simple fix......just place the following fonts folder into the simatchviewer_uncompressed folder
Download Fonts Folder Here folks

There are news?
Hi,Rabcp
I'm trying to make CSL videoads bymyself.
I have a problem about the lcd texture.Should I copy and paste over again and again to stitch those layers or just enlarge on layer? Which is better?
Many thanks!
