DazS8 Comments
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

1.find the id number of your female staff member and add that number to the faces config/xml file
2.find a pic you wish to use for this staff member and add into the faces pack

As an alternative to this you could always just add an actual pic as the default face instead of the dark silhouette (as I have done)


@DazS8
How do i do this?


Here are the default pics (most skins have them included already)
http://www.mediafire.com/file/1pq77wc2tkqo1d0/DEFAULT+PLAYERS+PICS.rar

Put either into your skins graphics/pictures folder
OR
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\pictures
These look very familiar..........
Brilliant.......great work guys
Thanks DaszS8... So I've managed to overwite the Clubs xml and have no back up I'm trying a few recovery tools and if I have no luck I'll need to reamake the xml which will take a few days...FML

Thanks TVcapper good to see you back

Brilliant....thanks Rab
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!!
