Hi guys.

I'm not sure if I'm asking in the right place, but here we go... I downloaded the last update of the fm2017's database, but in the team I use to play (Gremio - Bra) there isn't some players. Curiously, in the database here of the site, is everything correct. Is there a problem in my (v17.1.2) game ou I'm missing something?

Thanks a lot for the help!


One thing I notice is your game version it should now be 17.3.1

Next up: UEFA Super Cup


Looks brilliant
We'll probably collaborate in some form, I'm toying with the idea of doing all clubs from the Seria A or La Liga but will decide once I've made the Europa Leagues. I may also give the Major European Leagues a generic update as most of the current ads are several years old, however the same can be said for most club adboards too I guess.

Whats the communities general preference, do most people tend to play with competition or club specific ads?


Thanks for the reply, my own personal preference would be Club adboards but its still a shame we cant use both after all these years
At last but with Premier League and Bundesliga Clubs LED ad-boards already made would it not have been better to join forces and make the Club adboards instead?.......just a thought!

Does anybody know if it's possible during 3D-matches to let all player names be shown instead only that of the ball-possesing player?

Already been searching for that without any success. Either nobody seems to be interested in this or the solution is completely obvious/doesn't exist.

UPDATE 11 (BONUS) NOW RELEASED
Ehi Man, why we have to download the 2015 adboards? Did you tell us that you was creating the new one?


He said 2016 adboards not 2015
The reason is to use it as a base pack and then apply his own packs as small update packs.
Download link for NO CLUB ADBOARDS?



BIG BLUE DOWNLOAD BUTTON EH!!
Thank you for the response. One quick question, will I have to reload all of my custom views?


Yes I am afraid so as it sets all settings back to default
I have tried pretty much everything as far as ticking and unticking the cache box and reloading the skin, but none of my kit changes are taking effect. As I recall there was some hidden cache files somewhere. Does anyone remember that? Or have a different solution?

Thanks


The hidden cache files are located here....

C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Local

Delete the whole Sports Interactive folder then restart your game, it will be reset to default now as in Default Skin etc.
Do this myself sometimes just to refresh everything, whether this will help your kits appear though remains to be seen

I think it's very mean of FM to remove the facility to add your own manager picture in Preferences in version 17.3. Would it have really hurt them to keep this option available? Why have they done it? It was a nice option to have. It smacks of bullying. C'mon FM reinstate it.


I could not agree more.
The Manager sim pictures are terrible in some cases although mine looks ok-ish so would it have hurt si to leave the option to add our own pictures if we so wish.
Come on "sort-it-out-si"

«This comment has been edited»
Yes of course that works, you only need replace an image to get it to work but to add a new image (not already in the pack) when a team has no images you would have to add its id to the config file included in its folder
The pack is made to be organised to the point where anyone can find and replace images to their own taste wherever they see fit.
Only reason I do the images in 1600 x 900 is to fit properly in resolution with the game but if you like you can use any size yes but if I did that in the pack adding huge images it would make it way too big to download
The game does not adapt any pic to the correct size though for instance if you tried to put an image of 900 x 1600 it would appear as a squashed down image (just an example).

Here you go mate, its called the premier league cup

Your text to link here...



OK NOW THIS IS STRANGE!!
http://www.fmshots.com/images/uChiA.jpg
I have it in my long term save (with added data files) but in the new save I tried its not there as in picture in previous post but is available if you search for it using the search box.

Also that version pictured is NOT controlled by the config file we are discussing it is in fact a regular logo with set id, as you can see it already has the correct logo
So all that we need to do is replace the Prem cup logo in the youth folder with the FA youth cup logo which is available in the ALT folder

No pal that's wrong

The u18 cup should be the fa youth cup logo. However your showing the premier league cup logo for the u18s instead

There is an u23 cup called the premier league cup which is in the game. You currently have the u23 cup(premier league cup) showing as the u18 cup logo which is incorrect


Thats weird then because I have no U23 Cup in my game only the U18 cup also your first point is exactly what I said in that the U18 should be FA youth cup but again I say I dont have an U23 cup in my FM17 game.
There was in FM16 though but not in my FM17, you are playing fm17?

Look at the image below showing comps in England there is NO U23 cup just an U18 cup

Hi Krem,

As stated in a previous post on your last update your still showing the U23 cup logo as the U18 cup logo.

The premier league cup is the u23 cup not the u18 cup

Therefore your also missing the config code for the u23 cup

<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 1/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 2/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 3/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 4/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 5/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 6/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 7/logo"/>
<record from="engu23" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 23s group 8/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 1/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 2/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 3/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 4/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 5/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 6/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 7/logo"/>
<record from="engu18" to="graphics/pictures/comp/english under 18s group 8/logo"/>
<record from="engu18cup" to="graphics/pictures/comp/under 18s cup/logo"/>

are you able to update the config to add the u23 cup? thanks


I made the config
If you check your game (default) there is no Under 23 cup in FM17, just an U18 Cup hence that is why the Premier league cup logo shows there.
Just remove the Premier League cup logo if it bothers you that much m8 but I agree the logo is wrong and should be the FA Youth cup logo

One question, which skin are you using?


I use Vitrex at the moment but FLUT dark is also very good for this pack

When I have enough to warrant doing a update pack m8, have a few bits so far but could do with some more really
