If after applying this I wanted to change some competition names (like say EA sports cup to Irish League cup) how would I go about that please?
No Worries found it

«This comment has been edited»
How did you update it? please
I'd love not ta have start my file from scratch again
Hi Rab,

Amazing work as always, and thank you for all the time you take on this. This is a minor issue, but when playing as Celtic, some of the static boards on higher tiers that are supposed to run together e.g. Celtic Superstore and Celtic Football Club are fragmented between other ads. The only thing I changed was a direct swap of a New Balance board with a Green Brigade one. I did not touch the XML and just deleted the NB and added Green Brigade with same file name as NB. However, as you can see on these two screenshots, the Celtic Superstore in the right and corner and the Celtic Football Club behind one of the goals are mixed in with other boards.

Not a big issue at all but thought it best to let you know.


I noticed this too and I've not changed anything in the file at all
Thank you but now, my adboards are black

No idea what to say now
All I did was install the whole thing then apply the fix over it (allowing overwrite as needed) and everything was fine

Many Thanks Bolid, without all these as a base (English ones too), I'd be stumped. fantastic

Hi, I have the same problem as some, the first adboard video runs in repetition even though I installed the file called bidstack_enabled.xml

Can you look my file in attachment ? please, thanks


install the fix over it, mine works fine
Cant wait to get back at making my own again, only just bought 19 brilliant as ever rabcp

Tempory video files have been added to the following club from existing adboards, this should result in removing all 'black video ads' from English games.
https://s26.postimg.org/8mfbw8ki1/eng.png English Championship
Sheffield United (Video ads)

- Added static adboards to generic English Premiership adboards
- Added default video adboards
- Added code to stop 'Bidstack' video ads from showing

This is an add-on pack and requires the following files to be installed first
V1.0 - Download
V1.1 - Download
V1.2 - Download

Does this overwrite the previous versions (so I'll need to copy my personal edits?) please
your two tutorials are just perfect !
but unfortunately I can't create these video adboards ... I must be bad with photoshop but I really can't create them ...

Leave them up on screen and re-read everything as you go, you'll get it
I made a few twonks before I got it right, once you get one yer away and flying
Yes same size but each object you want to roll has to be a separate layer

Class, another great tut, easy ta follow with brilliant results. Much appreciated rabcp
Tutorial No.2
Rolling Object

This tutorial will explain how to create the rolling effect below.

Step 1
To begin my image has 3 layers, Background, Taxi and Logo. In this image we want to apply the rolling effect to the Logo layer. To apply this sort of effect we need to make a Smart object to do this we right click on the Logo Layer and select the Convert to Smart Object option.

Step 2
Our next step is to create a beginning and end of the animation, this is done by dragging the timeline to the desired start point and selection the Transform option, this will give our logo a starting position. Next we move the timeline along and again select the Transform option, this now gives us an end position. At this point the Logo should be dragged to the desired end position

Step 3
At this point our logo travel's from one end of the D Taxis text to the other, now we want to add a rolling effect. This is achieved by moving the timeline along 00.05 and again selecting the Transform option, now we want to rotate the angle 180 degrees this is done by selecting; Edit > Transform > Rotate then typing 180 in the angle field.

Step 4
Repeat the above step every 0.05 seconds mixing between 180 and 0 degrees....0..180..0..180..0..180..0..180..0

Now we have the finished effect, if the image is going from right to left instead then angles would be 0 and -180

Do I use the same sized base image fer this one as the last 2816 x 88? please
the next video adboard I’ll be making has a rolling ball effect so I’ll make and post a tutorial on how this is done in photoshop and post it up by the end of the week hopefully

Excellent, cant wait, most appreciated
Massive thank you to A11_Smithy, templates pack you've put together... Outstanding,
literally brought my enjoyment back for the game, nobody makes the kits I need for Ireland and Northern Ireland
so I've ta make them all myself and without your work as a start point I'd have been stuffed.
Most appreciated
Hello :-) ,

I noticed something during my 3D games with Adboards Videos ... I have the impression that the Abdoards during my game are not of the same quality as the ones I can see on your different Pictures? ... can I do anything to have better qualities? I find for example that the Abdoards or there is the color white in it, like the Adboards Tempobet, and the white is almost grey...
Thank's in advance for your help

That would be because of the LCD layer that gets applied I recon, think you'll fined it's the same fer all us and not just yerself
I'll try and get some uploaded over the next few weeks, is there any particular effects you are looking for?

I've no idea at all, I'll take anything ta be honest, what ever is easiest for yourself to write out... and appreciated thanks
Such a dumb arse, I know what I did... forgot the interger values for my team,
had them done for the static boards I made but forgot to add interger values for the video boards
All is good now thanks rabcp.

Any chance I get a small tut on some different effects?
your first one for the scrolling video board was easy to follow, had it done in no time at all.
Can you post the edits you made to the xml?

Hahahaha... Yeah I shoulda kept it, Shouldnt I.
I'll do it again and post you it. Thanks
Gonna have a go at those video ad boards, when I've cracked the basics, I'd appreciate those minor guides on other video affects rabcp please

So I managed to make my own & swapped it for the liverpool boards to make sure I done it right... my ad showed up and scrolling just like it should
still cant get it to work in my own stadium though, I've selected video boards in the pre-game editor for my team and made the necessary edits in the xml but ads on the video boards are always black??? even when I try some already boards from your pack, they dont work in my stadium? Any help appreciated

what you said to do, just fix the team speech at the end of the first half, but the other problem remains!

I'm having no issue giving individual instructions after doing BertjeBlus's suggestion
The way to fix this small bug is to delete (or rename) the file 'match team talk panel.xml' in the 'panels/match' folder. Clear cache and reload skin.

Most appreciated BertjeBlus, worked like a charm
Is this to be updated? not a another skin on the net as good as this one
just loaded this up, everything seems to work fine but all the players no longer have jersey numbers? what did I miss, please


NEVER MIND... downloading the first 2 parts first would a been a good idea
all 3 parts now and the jersey numbers returned

East Thurrock kits are done, down to 8 teams remaining in NLS

Extra's in your template pack... Brilliant
Got one here of all the templates I'm using and creating, link updates whenever I make a new kit so every couple days every other week. Mediafire Link Here

Not exactly what I was hoping fer... but hey, beggars cant be choosers,
Brilliant start and at least, I'll be able ta make my teams kit now kind of at least
Most appreciated Smithy, you Sir are a gentleman
Has anyone put together a 3D template pack yet please, with all the inter changable layers like we had for 17 and previous years for use in photoshop?
I love making my own kits but its only possible with the packs that used to match the 2d templates which I assume where put together by Hammer and whitehorse

I'd be more than a little greatful
Has anyone done a DB which includes Scottish football down to tier 7?
if so could you give me a link for the file please.

yes they can m8 but there seems to be an issue with the folders with big capital u have to make them to small capital

Thanks a lot Mate, changed the capitals in the folders to lower case... worked a dream
