Congratulations on your promotion. Presently no video ads are coded to League 2, I’ll fix this with the next update, though only the bigger clubs will use them 

 

haha i ended up making it to league 1 after one season in League 2, unreal it took me 4 years alone to just get out of national league!!

Hey Rab, i finally made it to EFL league 2 with my winsford FC team, is there a generic video adboard for the league alone or are video adboards specific to teams only, what i mean by that is i've been playing against teams that have video adboards but they have the generic FM21 ads is it possible at all to replace those generic ones with just sponsors from EFL League 2

 

Thanks

The patch will need installed to a different file location if you play FM via Epic Games, as I use Steam don’t know what the equivalent location is but perhaps someone else can advise?

You’ll need to use the FM21 Resource Archiver to extract them, they are kept in the graphics.fmf file in the FM21 data folder.

Thanks rab

The real question here is, how you made it work with the Epic Games Store version?


i take it you bought it off epic games store? why not get a refund if there isn't a fix and buy it off steam...no issues with steam.

@rabcp, you could please repost the actual default ads from FM21? i know we can see them in game but i can't find them anywhere at all in main directory and i actually wouldn't mind using 2 or 3 of them with the current ads i've done. Thanks

The default fm.xml file is kept here C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\game\ads.fmf however, I have been unable to extract it with the resource archiver so it might be locked, from what I can remember this has been the case with the past few FM's, I have no idea why SI no longer want us to access this file but I would guess it is something to do with the bidstack ads coding.


Is it actually needed though at all for adboards? i might go all out and start doing adboards based on major sponsors for certain leagues etc
Also have you tried using file magic to open the fmf?

These are the default ads for FM21
https://i.postimg.cc/901W98jk/def-21.png

All you need to do is create new ads and save them in this location C:\Users\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\pictures\ads\default using the names of the FM21 default ads above


Hey rab,
Quick update i got this to work, there was an old fm.xml sitting in football manager 2021 directory causing it to not work properly, thanks again for all your help!

You can just create a new default folder in this location C:\Users\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\pictures\ads\

The defualt fm.xml file is kept here C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\game\ads.fmf however, I have been unable to extract it with the resource archiver


Thanks for responding mate, so i guess i can't do much until we can get our hands on that default folder which contains all the default adboards for FM21, keep me updated if you can, kind of over looking at these default fm ads hehe!

I would like to change the default ads that appear in FM21, currently playing in level 9 england and wouldn't mind changing/updating those ads to ones i've created, although what i need is the fm.xml for FM21 and the folder called default which usually has the default ads which appear at most if not all stadiums. rabcp can you please assist?

I first have to finish level 8 leagues before I think of doing any level 9. However North West Counties were made last season, and most of kits are used this season again. Winsford is reusing last season kits if I'm not mistaken


I tried adding them not long ago, not sure what im doing wrong here but they are not working atm, i've attached my folder structure if that helps. Thanks!

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.

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?

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!

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


Yep i tried installing in the right order twice sofar and no luck is it something to do with Ligue 2? also if the issue is reinstalling does that just refer to reinstalling the ads themselves as that seems to be the problem?
