@rabcp I did the same thing as @DulwichVillageFc and re-installed the video ads folder and now it's working.

I must have messed something up when I merged the updates in with the existing folder.

If the issue persists in competitive games it may be worth trying a reinstall


Will do. Cheers bud
If Schalke and Atletico are the home teams the then there is no issue as these teams have no video ads assigned to them so in friendlies they would display black ads.

@DulwichVillageFc thanks for your kind words


Just checked now and Everton were at home. Also checked in on an Arsenal game and a Real Madrid game (Arsenal were at the Emirates but the game was listed as neutral for the Emirates Cup, while Real Madrid were at home).

None of them are working.

Chances are you are both managing teams who have been promoted to a higher league which does not have video adboards, or you stadium has been expanded to a size which would trigger video adboards but none are assigned to the clubs you are managing.

@DulwichVillageFc & @Carlito85 what clubs are you getting this issue with?


I'm managing Newcastle United and just played a friendly away vs. Schalke, but I also watched highlights from other games (Everton vs. Atletico) to see if it was just the stadium I was playing in. They all have black video boards.
I'm now getting the problem where video ads don't show up and instead I get the solid black led boards. I tried renaming hd to sd, clearing the cache and reloading the skin, and even changing the graphics quality but that made no difference.

The static ads, banners and flags still show up fine.

I´ve founhjd the mistaike..

In the UEFA Chamopions League the 8 teams from "SESCOND QUALIFYING ROUND" don´t take part in FIRST ROUND.
So the CPU filled the teams with the 8 highest reputated teams.
I hope, I can fix this bug!


Thanks for the heads up. I'll take a look at it asap and hopefully I can get the new update out within the next week.
Made an edit of the studio shot if someone can make a cut of it

For the update packs does the fm.xml file replace the one in Documents > FM20 > ads?
What did you do. I`m a bit cunfuse


For FM20 when the video ads wouldn't show up, I renamed the HD folder to SD, quit the game, loaded it back up, then reloaded the skin in the preferences and it worked.
From the image source finder thread:

In my experience it's easier to get a good quality cutout from larger-sized original sources, as resizing and rotating you tend to lose some of the fine details in (for example) the hair. If you post the original size sources in the future (whether it's as the requested image, or just uploading it in the comments of a resized/rotated picture like this one), the person cutting it out can always reduce the size themselves, but it's harder to increase the size of the image after it's been reduced


No worries. Normally I do post the original. In this case I was originally going to cut it myself but I didn't fancy my chances with that tuft of hair at the top lol.

It's the same image I used in the request. I just resized it and positioned it in a 250x250 canvas so it's ready to cut out
Here's an alt. if anybody can find it in a larger scale

I forgot to ask by the way, is it possible to get static adboards to show around the pitch behind the video ads if they're not there already, or does it depend on the stadium type?

I'm playing as Newcastle and they should have both, but right now they only have the video ads around the pitch and static ads higher up.
Hi rabcp

Made a few static ad boards if you wanna use them. I randomly found myself watching Newcastle's ads against Norwich lol.

Looking for a full-sized version of this that includes the top of the hair if there's one out there?

Can anyone help me out here?

I'm trying to open the config file for the normal sized face pics in Notepad++ but it's saying the file is too big to open? It's only 17.5mb, and the config file for the icon pics opens without any issues (16.5mb)
I'll get to that later on. Cheers
Does anybody know how to change this url so the image is in colour? Preferably larger as well if possible. The size in the url is 580x500 but not sure how to change it. I was able to get it slightly larger than what it was by changing "/cropandgreyscale/" to "/greyscale/" but then it lost its colouring

@mons I found a larger version of the source image by changing "cropandgreyscale" to "greyscale" in this url

https://www.itfc.co.uk/api/image/greyscale/45e072fd-5e9a-4f3b-ac5c-c79bd70f299e/?preset=square&greyscale=false

https://www.itfc.co.uk/api/image/greyscale/45e072fd-5e9a-4f3b-ac5c-c79bd70f299e/?preset=square&greyscale=false

I can't figure out how to change it to a colour image though. Someone in the image finder thread may know how to get it in better quality
This is the source image I used:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DKFIIqSWkAAj2b8.jpg

if anyone can find a larger version of the player profile image then I'll do a better quality cut-out.
My bad, gents. Just saw there was a request done 2 weeks ago.

«This comment has been edited»
@Carlito85 congrats on a brilliant idea and magnificent execution. I've tried it and liked it.

However, if I can, let me post a request: can you "separate" the CONCACAF+CONMEBOL from the rest, because for years now I've always wanted a fusion of both those confederations competitions, as you have made here, but I am not that keen on messing with the UEFA ones.
So if you can (I know nothing of the processes of making such adds-on, so I dont know if it is burdensome or not) can you a make a file with just the CONCACAF+CONMEBOL competitions, please?


Thanks a lot

The CONCACAF-CONMEBOL merger file can be used without the UEFA files already. Run with file A (which is compatible with the Europa League history) and there shouldn't be any issue using the default UEFA system.
Just one more question. Do I also need to drag the Steam folder into the iTunes FMT20 file share as well, or just the other graphics and skin?

I had to create the folders- common > FM20 > data as I didn’t have them. I put the simatchviewer_uncompressed folder inside the data one. Is that right?


That's where it needs to go, but I think those folders should be there already as they contain loads of other files you'll need to run the game.

Did you install the main FM folder to a different directory outside of your program files? The one with the main database files etc.
Looks quite an amazing amount of work you've done here, well done done.


Thanks a lot. Much appreciated

@Carlito85 as always well done mate I know the amount of work that goes into things like this from back in the day when I use to do them, thanks for sharing here have a Merry Xmas


Much thanks. Grateful for all the help you've provided along the way, it really has helped make a difference from what was only supposed to be 1 competition in 1 file lol. Hope you have a great Christmas too, amigo.
Can you please clarify two points.

Firstly, I have downloaded the zip file but can’t find the ...
"simatchviewer_uncompressed" folder ......

I’ve found the other two and put them where directed. Just can’t find the folder for the video ads. As it is I don’t connect to Steam, I am not sure if this would work anyway. Was wondering if they could be placed in my graphics folder area?

Also I plan to re-load the graphics and skin to iTunes and then pick a new skin that hasn’t been used before. Should this suffice to see the changes, or does it need a complete new re-install of the game on my iPad?


The simatchviewer_uncompressed folder should be located in the first folder you open from the download. The one in all upper case.

That folder should then be placed in Program Files > Steam > SteamApps> common > FM20 > data

Changing the skin could work. Personally I changed the graphics quality, reloaded the skin in the game preferences, quit the game, then changed the graphics quality back to normal and it suddenly started working. At first, the video ads worked for me but the banners didn't.
