Hi!

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


It is easiet to use XMedia Recode 64bit to convert your files - https://www.xmedia-recode.de/en/download.php i'll update the guide and possibly include a video guide soon as ive had a few requests via PM.

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.

it sounds like you do not have an xml file selected go to 'Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\ads' and copy an xml file from either the clubs or no clubs folder into the ads folder

on Xmedia Recode 64bit i have only option for the saving.
the only option is .xmr

why?

1. Open file and select your .avi file
2. add to queue
3. Ensure output format is .ivf
4. encode
Digital adboards working perfectly but the static boards are just showing fm2008 logo
Any ideas where i have gone wrong?
thanks

EDIT:here are some screen shots to show the situation

Rangers home game at ibrox- works perfectly
Rangers away game at tannadice- fm2008 logo


«This comment has been edited»
I've finished to make the adboards for all the clubs from the Belgian Pro League (y)

Hope it will be shared w/ all of you soon in the next update
Just downloaded, so far so good, all the boards are working, expect when im playing at home with Dortmund the static ones aren't showing, the updates that are currently on, do I just overwrite the existing files with the updates?

Chances are your Graphics folder is the issues make sure it's called "graphics" for some reason the uppercase "G" causes this issue. (Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics)

You need to install all updates in order, V.1.0, V.1.1, V1.2 & V1.2.1 in order for the Dortmund ads to work

Hello,Am i doing something wrong?i have tried to install but not working,this is were my files are,are they ok?can anyone help please?

Your graphics folder is wrong, the correct set up is graphics/pictures/ads

You have missed the pictures folder
Checked the graphics folder and it already had a small g
And I am still having the same problem of all static adboards showing fm2008 logo

They are coded at the start of the xml file

You must have gone wrong somewhere, as the Dortmund static ads work as intended, make sure you have the newest xml file and search you actually have the dormund static ads (Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics\pictures\ads\europe\germany\clubs\borussia dortmund)

hi mate

Your issue is the pictures folder that also needs to be lower case

Hello rabcp,

Here's the folder setup on a mac.

What issue are you having with the patch?

As far as I know that looks correct but I don play with a MAC so Icant 100% confirm
Thanks for the help
Sending a donation your way for the great add on
Stay safe
Updated F.A.Q


Where should I install the files too?

XML files

If playing on a MAC system install the graphics to this path;

Why are there two different xml files?
As the folder names suggest one xml file contains club specific adboards and one does not. This has been done as in previous patches people have complained that they see clubs specific adboards in cup competitions. Due the way the xml file there is no way around this using code. The only solution is the use of two files, the pictures below demonstrate the difference in the xml files.

https://i.postimg.cc/8Cc0wkS2/clubs.png


Why are my video adboards are black?
https://i.postimg.cc/RZrNhr7j/error-3.png
Either your video ads are in the wrong location or your system can not cope with HD graphics.
- Ensure you video ads are in this location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\simatchviewer_uncompressed\videos
- Try re-naming the 'HD' folder in the above location to 'SD' this tricks the system into treating the video as SD files.

What happened to the static ads?
https://i.postimg.cc/28L1CjZQ/error-2.png

https://i.postimg.cc/mZ5cx1tZ/error-1.png
This error occus when FM can not find the correct static ads.
- Ensure the static ads are the the following location:
PC - Documents/Sports Interactive/football manager 2020/graphics/pictures/ads
MAC - Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/football manager 2020/graphics/pictures/ads
- Ensure this path (graphics/pictures/ads) contains only lowercase charcters.

Hi rabcp. Thanks for the reply. I have the same problem than Kyle mcivor as I'm seeing only football manager 2008 static ads.
Hi rabcp. Thanks for the reply. I have the same problem than Kyle mcivor as I'm seeing only football manager 2008 static ads.

What is the exact path of your \graphics\pictures\ads\ folder? As it's a Mac, the full path isn't visible.

Also, what is the size of this folder and how many files do you have in there?

Hi mons. Thank you for the reply.
here's my exact path for my folders:

graphics: Macintosh HD>Users>myusername>Library>Application Support>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2020>graphics>pictures

xml: Macintosh HD>Users>myusername>Library>Application Support>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2020>ads

steam: Macintosh HD>Users>myusername>Library>Application Support>Steam>steamapps>common>Football Manager 2020>data>simatchviewer_uncompressed

bidstack: Macintosh HD>Users>myusername>Library>Application Support>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2020>Preferences>version3

the ads folder (inside pictures) weighs 353,5 MB and has 5045 items.
These ads used to work before I updated my team's 2D and 3D kits; although I doubt it, do you think that has something to do with ads not working now?

All looked fine until the last couple of paragraphs. I have a fair amount less of items in the ads folder, 4.365 to be precise. What are those extra files - did you put anything else in there?

As for the 2D and 3D kits, where exactly did you install them? If the adboard stopped working after adding them, it could be that this was not done properly. Can you try removing them and see if the adboards work then?

Hi mons, thank you for the reply.
I've tried to remove the new kits and that didn't work. The kits are installed in their correct folders and correctly coded.

No, there's nothing else in the ads folder.

I deleted and reinstalled all adboard patches and now I'm getting England national tam adboards for a club friendly as per attachment. Is this normal? (before for friendly matches, I used to get default adboards).

Nope, that's not quite right either. You've somehow not installed it correctly, but I'm at a loss as to exactly how.

I have a proposal via PM

Yes this is correct, I don’t know why but with friendly matches if there are no club adboards FM will look for International adboards assigned to that nation before loading the default ads
Would it be possible to change the "TransUnion" stand to the "Norman Hunter Stand" for Leeds?

https://www.leedsunited.com/news/club/26578/the-norman-hunter-south-stand

I imagine the writing etc will look very similar to the Don Revie stand, it would just help add a bit more realism to my Leeds save (7 years in).

Cheers
I have same problem,video adboard works fine but,static adboard doesnt show up,instalation correct : Documents/Sports Interactive/football manager 2020/graphics/pictures/ads
