Can you post a screenshot of what you seeing on a matchday

No, this setting does not affect the match engine

I can maybe produce some static ads for Paris FC

Thanks Mons, that is indeed the issue, SI have moved some files around, I'll produce soem bespoke ads for Ligue 2 over the next week


Thanks rabs, that would be awesome!

There are no static adboard for Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. Or did I set something wrong?

I just checked la liga folder, no adboards for real or barca although in game you should still see some red and yellow ones - cruzcampo bet365 etc?

Hello everyone. can someone help me solve?

If I have time I'll include Leverkusen

Static adboards will feature in the next update, however, there is currently no release date for this.

Hello everyone. can someone help me solve?

The black ads means the XML can not load the video ads in to you game, this means that they are in wrong location or that your system can not handle 'HD' graphics, the 'simatchviewer_uncompressed' folder should be in this location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2020\data

If that is correct then go this location C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\simatchviewer_uncompressed\videos and rename the 'HD' folder to 'SD' this tricks the system into treating the same graphics as standard definition.

This should result in you seeing the following

Hey rab,
I take back what i said, so the screenshot i posted earlier was during a friendly match and the static boards and adboards all appear to be working fine when playing in a "Ligue1" match, please let me know how you go with addressing the earlier Ligue 2 issue as i may start a new game with Paris FC.

Can you do video adboard for Extremadura UD (LaLiga Smartbank)? I tried to do it but I only see the general adboard for LaLiga
Do you know about this random danish ad? It's a bit annoying that it's there more often than your adboards
https://i.imgur.com/hLRpXrJ.jpg
@rabcp I don't see at your wip teams Liverpool as well. Do you intend to add some banners of Liverpool such as the others big english teams too?

Guys calm down, he is just a human... He cant make alone all of your requests...
love the work here

I found some adboards and banners on some forum. They are for fm16 template, but if you could try and put them into fm20, would be perfect!

Sorry but I am no longer taking requests. I do not usually make video ads for clubs from non top leagues as it can take up to 2 hours per video adboard. This is too much time to spend on a club that most people who play the game will not encounter.

Ensure you have the bidstack fix installed this is included in all packs and instructions are in the read me and the video install guide

@rabcp I don't see at your wip teams Liverpool as well. Do you intend to add some banners of Liverpool such as the others big english teams too?

I only make fan banners that are in a permanent location within a stadium which match-up as close as possible to the stadium model used in FM, this is why Liverpool have none so far, I might make some for the Kop end at some point in the future

love the work here

Thank you for your feedback.

The ads you have attached are made for FIFA not FM, they are in a differnt format, 4 years out of date and someone elses work, therfore, I will not be including them.
Thank you very much in advance and once again, great work rabcp!!!

Hi, any idea of why mine looks like that? I'm coaching in Austria 1st division.

Thanks in advance.

As per this post:

The football manager adboards are loaded as a fall back when the game is unable to find the required graphics, this means you have missing files. The patches need to be installed in order e.g. V1.0 -> V.1 -> V.2

all links are in the first post of this thread


How many files are in the graphics/pictures/ads folder and what is its size?
Can someone show me the last part for Mac users? Where is the Program Files (x86) in a Mac? It is also in the Mac set up..

I have a suggestion for the next FM 21 to change these Polish adboards, of course, the stationary ones are not led because they are so many years old and it would plant something new

If you provide images of real-life adboards as well as the respective sponsor logos, I'm sure it'd help
Hi mate!
You are doing a great job and i love it really. I hoped you could create this because it would really immerse the playing experience.

I compiled pictures for each team, it includes banners and adboards. Its 10 teams. Hopefully you can inlude it in one of your future updates.

I would be extatic if i see this ingame

Its in 2 parts because i couldnt upload it in one file.

Thank you so much!

It's working fine for me, but thanks for the assistance
Hello, i've done some changes for the Belgian Pro League adboards.
I also added clubs adboards for Anderlecht, Brugge, Gent, Antwerp & Standard de Liège, and for the Croky Cup competition.

I also checked issues for the Ligue 2 and that's what i found :

While I appreciate the upload I am currently not taking any requests, I am unlikely to produce video ads for Slovenia due to the amount of time each adboard takes to make and the limited number of players who play within the Slovenian league, I may however, update the static Slovenian ads.

These are my suggestions !!!

As previously stated, I am not currently considering any more requests, however, to reproduce video adboard’s I would need links to HD copies of full matches

This has already been identified within this thread, I used the standard ads that come with the game for Ligue 2 however, after the newest patch they no longer seem to be compatible, it is my intention to make new ads for Ligue 2
How to make a Video Adboard


Required ResourcesIn this post, I'll explain how to make a simple scrolling video adboard, if people want it I can post a few minor guides for more advanced effects with video adboards such as spinning images, zooming in and out of images etc.

1.
First of all, we need to make our adboard, In Photoshop create a new image sized 2816 x 88 pixels, this is the adboard size I have been using to date. Within the game adboards are repeated twice behind the goals and three times along the pitch. This is where the calculator comes in, the gaps between all images (e.g. Sportsdirect.com in this case) need to be the same size. they should also be half the size at the start and end of the image. This will ensure that when the ads line up they maintain the same pattern.
https://s26.postimg.cc/po30w3g3t/temp.png

Once made from the Layer menu select Merge Layers, then copy the adboard.
https://s26.postimg.cc/p3jefnxhl/sd1.png

2.
Create a new image double the length of the adboard (5632 x 88 pixels) and paste the adboard at the start and end of the new image. Again, merge the layers, we need this size of image to create the scrolling effect. As you can see because of the above calculations the gaps between all images are the same size when combined.
https://s26.postimg.cc/tyd3dxvt5/sd_2_zpsks8joleo.png_original.png


3.
Now we create our image for the actual adboard, sized 2816 x 88 pixels. We want the adboard to scroll from left to right so once the previous (5632 x 88) image is pasted onto this image we want the end of the adboard to be line up with the edge at left hand side of our new image.
https://s26.postimg.cc/m32jz4m6h/move.png

https://s26.postimg.cc/p3jefnxhl/sd1.png


4.
We now need to create the image effect, to do this we create a Video Timeline, select the Window Menu thenTimeline. Once the Timeline Menu appears at the bottom of the screen select the Create Video Timeline option.
https://s26.postimg.cc/4zzs3m5hl/create_video.png


5.
In Photoshop, the standard timeline is 5 seconds, for this adboard we want to make it 10 seconds. To do this we click on the end of the layer one timeline (highlighted) and drag right until the timeline becomes 10 seconds long.
https://s26.postimg.cc/4yufnxt1l/time.png

https://s26.postimg.cc/eod86r0ax/sd_6_zpscovag3nq.png_original.png


6.
We now want to create our start and end points of the animation of the adboard. With the timeline bar at the start of the timeframe (Blue Arrow) click the position action then drag the blue arrow to the end of the timeline and click the position action again
https://s26.postimg.cc/g9shykaix/time_1.png


7.
With the timeline now at the 10 second point we drag the image all the way across from left to right until the end of the image now meets the left edge of the border, this creates the scrolling effect, if you select the play option in the timeline tab you'll see the effect in photoshop.
https://s26.postimg.cc/cz44yokll/sd_8_zpsnhabs4ce.png_original.png

https://s26.postimg.cc/p3jefnxhl/sd1.png


8.
We now save the image. File → Export → Save for Web (Legacy)

9.
Open up the saved image, this time the image will display each separate frame in the timeline and as a layer. We now want to give our adboard a LCD texture. Open the Video.png file and copy the image and then switch back to your gif. Click the tab with 3 lines and then Select All Frames then click on the very last layer.
https://s26.postimg.cc/jhwzblwsp/action.png


10.
Paste the adboard texture. Every frame will now just be the texture, however once we apply the Multiply effect we will now have every frame displaying our intended image with a LCD effect. We then save our final adboard again. File → Export → Save for Web (Legacy)
https://s26.postimg.cc/940qw41ft/multiply_layers.png


11.
We now need to convert our Gif file. First we go to convertio, upload your gif file choosing a .avi conversion and download the converted file.

11.
...

we now have a finished useable adboard.

Hi!

how to convert .avi (created whit your steps) to .ivf?

All I need to know is where the default ads are, all the ads work great but watching say a lower league match, I’m still seeing Centrepoint and FM08 (I think it says). No matter what I do, they’re still there. I don’t know where the folder is and what the default names are for the default ads.
If I could manage that, this is the perfect add on. Because of that I can only score it 99%

Such a lot of work gone into this, you’re a bunch of talented people. And thank you for the upload.


Edit to add photo. I just want rid of them all from wherever that folder is, leaving only the ‘real’ ads.

Second edit: that match is from Conf North featuring a team that were below that level at start of game. Would that be why? That kinda makes sense: the game isn’t aware that stadium exists.
