I thought when you was updating club video ads there be more than one video ad in a folder for exsample chelsea has only one video ad i thought there would me more in there ???


I have 3 Chelsea video ads
Nice Christmas Present.....thanks Rab
For umpteenth time 🙈 video adboards only work for clubs/competitions marked with (video ads) on page 1. Due to a bug in the game FM18 does not load static ads into the video ads frames resulting in all other video ads appear as black and there is no fix for this


hahaha maybe someday people will read

I’m hoping to have the first 10 EPL clubs finished by next weekend and might release and update then along with the Czech ads, League one clubs and video ads for China
[/quote

Look forward to it
I can see your point but the game doesn’t read the folders it only reads the ads.xml file


Thats not true
Set up 3 folders in alphabetical order and the game will read them and their contents in that order.
I have made background packs for years and to get one to have president over another this is how you would do it, I know these are not backgrounds but the same applies.
Anyway it does not matter keep up the good work I personally have no problems with the boards and never have it is more the users that have the problem rather than the product..lol

Can you screenshot the preferences in English please

That shouldn’t make a difference I have 3 folders in my xml folder and it all works fine


It should not make a difference but there is no need to have all in there, just the one you want to use as the game will always read in alphabetical order


«This comment has been edited»
ok but I chose "club or "no club "??


I use club and dont forget to clear the cache too before trying


«This comment has been edited»

Just curious but...
Try the game in windowed mode just to see if it makes a difference....turn game off then back on before trying it though after changing to windowed mode.



and yet again you have more than one xml in your ads folder.....you cant leave both in there as I stated before (see post on page 8)

Yes hello I have it exactly as in the Faq see pictures

Pls see my pic when klick is bigger


You appear to have both xml files in your folder I suggest removing the ones you dont use as the game this year is reading more than it should.
Also the 3 fonts should be in the font folder and dont rename it to fonts

Arsenal update with upper tier adboards


Brilliant work
I've found something that can help. I also had black ads. When I set up the settings that are recommended for this computer, ads are working normally, but the picture is adjusted to that setting. As soon as I set my own settings to make the image run smoothly, the reals are now black. It's definitely a bug SI and it should fix it quickly, I'm pretty disgusted this year. The game is very busy and it is unacceptable to play this full game.


I have an high end graphics card but when I put it to max settings all my players turn black....another bug same as black adboards

glad everyone has their numbers sorted now

The font folder goes as shown...

hi all my adboard are black I do not have the name of the players and the numbers on the shirt anymore? what to do please ???? I play with Man Utd and I chose no club @DazS8


To fix the shirt numbers then download the font folder in my earlier post. (page 5)
The black boards is not really something I can help with although...
If you use or have used another pack along with this pack then please delete all traces of it before installing, this worked for me regarding black boards.


«This comment has been edited»
Removed the font file and still not working, no idea why the adboards aren't working now will try to work it out later, Cheers for the help Daz

No problem m8 hope you get it sorted
Man United at the moment


Their boards are ok for me m8 as are every other team I have faced so far
https://www.fmshots.com/images/DCfQM.jpg
Make sure you clear the cache in preferences and re load your skin after installing the fonts, you may have to turn game off then back on again if you installed the fonts with the game running
just the one not mixing


Who are you managing?
I have noticed that if a team moves to a new stadium they have blank adboards,I had the problem in my Mansfield save
I had the Adboards working before, but no numbers, now i have the numbers but no adboards, sorry mate thought it fixed the numbers so you could have both.


I dont have blank adboards myself.
Are you just using this adboard pack or are you mixing with another?
Who are you managing?


«This comment has been edited»
After putting the font file in i am getting the numbers but blank adboards now Daz


I said it fixed numbers m8 not the blank adboards sorry, the two problems are not connected


«This comment has been edited»
Thanks for posting this!


No problem Rab glad I could help
To get numbers to appear its a simple fix......just place the following font folder into the simatchviewer_uncompressed folder

Great work Rab.....top man
Hi!

I'm sorry to semi-hijack this thread but my issue is a bit related to something DazS8 mentioned above. They mentioned that FM18 has no graphics folder to be found in the game folder. I'm an avid modder of FM (graphics & sounds mostly) and I noticed the new game's odd folder structure as well. The first thing after downloading I went to see what's inside this puppy and... it was honestly... strange. I've usually added my own match sounds into FM's sound folder and then edited the triggers to bring them to life in the match engine. Now, I can find the same familiar config files for match events & sounds, but there's no sound folder for me to place my added sound files in. It's really weird, since the configs are the same editable type as before. I have no idea where the game is playing the match sounds from now...? They have to be accessed from somewhere, just like the graphics!

If anyone can help me, I'd really appreciate it because I've got used to applying my own sounds to enhance the atmosphere since FM14 I think, not sure. So for me, it's just not the same without it.


Change the events and match sounds as before but put your edited sound files into documents/sports interactive/fm18/sounds folder instead


I'm hoping to have these released over the weekend


Whats you plan for FM18 Rab as there appears to be no graphics folder in steam/fm directory now for the video boards to be installed
Still get Gelsenkirchen instead of Schalke mons plus BMG and RBL
Nearly there Rab.....great work as ever
