Do you know about this random danish ad? It's a bit annoying that it's there more often than your adboards
https://i.imgur.com/hLRpXrJ.jpg
Do you still have to opt in and out of game when switching the xml files?
Yes you need to install in order so V1.0 then V1.1 and then V1.2


Ah, ok thanks. Knew that I have missed something
"If you are playing on an older system try re-naming the 'HD' folder to 'SD' ". What does this means?
I notice that clubs with no video ads is black by default. It concerns King Power Stadium.
Can you somehow put the static down on video?
Or am I all wrong and you have to install v1.0 and 1.1 before 1.2?
Is there a temporarily solution for this? I've placed the sigfx folder same place as in FM17, which is obviously wrong
Can someone help me with this problem? Is it because it's not the same for FM18
https://i.imgur.com/ZZ1Dvenm.png
i know mate. you have to wait and patience...i try my best to do them for FM18 but im do SSKCC FM17 more new packs first.

I know. Can you implement SSKKC in a save game, or do you have to create a new game?
Not yet but im working on it. ti will huge work for me tho.

OK. Thanks. I've already stumbled upon a problem in the danish league
Which SSKC for FM18?
Hi. Should I download the 1.2.2 or wait for the FM18 download add-on?
I'd think so to an extent, it apprears that video ads are infulenced by stadium size rather than club reputation (I've yet to check this in any deatil), if this is the case then it's possible for small clubs such as Queen's Park (Scottish League 1) to have Video ads while big clubs such as Monaco and Villarreal can only have static adboards.


Ok. Thanks for the answer
Nope as video ads only work on stadiums with a capacity of at least 30,000 in FM17


Ok, but all major clubs (Arsenal, United, City, Tottenham, etc. (and not forget to mention major clubs in other countries)) will have it?


Bournemouth

Next up: Burnley


Will all new ads be video ads?
It's due to teams having different kits for other competitions. If you have the in-game editor go to the opposing club's general screen and click edit kits on the editor and you'll see what I mean

I don't have the in-game editor, but I have FMSE from fm scout
Hi, I am managing Tottenham and have some problems regarding european matches. The kit of my opponent (and sometimes my own) is not showing even though I've downloaded the SS pack and the 3D pack for the kit. So far I've only experienced this in CL.

Help would be much appreciated

Hi:

In this version in the prematch lineups panel you can change the information of your team in the pitch (as in the tactics overview) with the top left buttons (in the pitch): display the rating, the role/position or the familiarity.


Thanks
The new views for formations? I can't find that
The xml file is loaded upon FM booting, if you want to switch between xml files or make changes to a xml file then you need to restart FM


Then why not make a all-in-one xml file, so you don't have to restart every time you switch?
Ok, thanks. That's a bit complicated though ☺️
Hi again.

Now I've placed the afs the right place (they're showing), but when I edit the XML file, it doesn't apply in the game. It also seems like that I've to restart the game to apply the club ads, if I've just played a CL match.
Thanks. Finally! Sorry for the inconvenience. Can you edit the xml file, to change ads without errors in game?
Neither place the ads folder (containing the static ads) in the graphics folder, 1st pic you have graphics/graphics/pictures/ads it should be graphics/pictures/ads


Guess what, that didn't work either. Do I have to place a xml file in the static graphics folder?

http://i.imgur.com/l0BW2zLm.png
http://i.imgur.com/i93QmXMm.png
Which ads folder do you have in the picture, the xml files or the static adboards?

The xml ads folder should be in (my documents/sports interactive/football manager 2017/ads) and the graphics ads foolder should be (my documents/sports interactive/football manager 2017/graphics/pictures/ads)

So like this:

Hi again, Sorry for the inconvinience, but it worked and suddently it didn't. I have the ads folder and the graphics folder installed in same place, as you can see in this picture
http://i.imgur.com/2F1AyCal.png

What am I doing wrong?
I'm guessing some of the ads in this folder are no longer used, once I release the Scottish ads (hopefully tomorrow) I'll start a major rework of the English ads, I'm expecting this to take at least 2 months so I might do a release every 5 clubs or something along those lines.


Yeah. I looked through the xml file for clubs, and not all the PL ads are in use. I might try experiment with that. I'm also wondering why all the video ads aren't in use at a CL match
Ok. Thanks for the good work and for your replies ☺️
That explains a lot. But still doesn't explain why it is not using all of the static ads. For example, if you want to see the new PL ads. Can you move them around to change priority or something like that?
