Change those default video boards for these real life boards superbly created by Jeff Roberts and Rabcp
Dynamic Adboards 1.6.2 is a MINOR update for the 1.6.1. It covers the Top 50 European Clubs. Config file included.
Very easy to install, instructions are included and are easy to follow.

V 1.6.2 Boards, config and pack made by Jeff Roberts with some additional adboards from Rabcp including his new static boards.

This is exactly the same file that I use on my saves.

NOTE
These adboards are for Clubs ONLY!

Even though adboards for all Prem teams and other leagues are included some will not have HD Video Boards in the game.
This is due to the fact that certain stadiums are not classed as good enough to have video boards instead the static adboards will show at these grounds (Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Stoke for example).

Update packs will be added when available.

PACK v1.6.2 INCLUDES:
Top 50 club teams from:
Premier League
Bundesliga
Scotland Old Firm (Celtic & Rangers)
Spanish Laliga
French
Italian
Portuguese
Dutch
as well as top European teams such as Zenit St Petersberg, Anderlecht and more

Changes from V1.6.1 are:
Added Rabcp's static boards using my config
Added Olympic Marseille and Norwich
Some updated boards

Use Chrome or Firefox to download.

How to install Dynamic Ad Boards to FM18

  1. Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file to a temporary folder.

  2. Move the fm.xml file to your ads folder here:
    ..\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\ads
    If you have an existing Ads file BACK IT UP BEFORE overwriting.

  3. Place the simatchviewer_uncompressed folder where you have Steam installed.
    ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2018\data
    Replace any folders when asked. This will not result in any loss of previous graphics.

  4. Place the graphics folder into the following directory
    My documents/sports interactive/football manager 2018

    You may be asked if you want to replace existing files and folders, agreeing to this will just update previous adboards and will not result in the loss of any previous graphics.

  5. Load up FM18 and on preferences screen do the following:
    un-tick use skin cache
    un-tick clicking on ad board takes you to owners website
    tick reload skin on confirm.

    how to install this boards to FM 2018? instructions on topic not work. p;ease help
  • Bartdude's avatar
    Great work Jeff but you need to proof read mate as some basic spelling errors are causing some boards or teams to not appear.
  • mykal's avatar
    All folders in file are empty?
  • Bartdude's avatar
    El-TEV,each team has an exclusive folder,so changing divisions will not alter the boards currently showing. To change that,you can simply replace any current adboards with those from another team,not forgetting to change the new board names in the Wolves config file.

    Hi , if i start a save with wolves and then get promoted to the Premier League will the Premier League ads show up or will I have to keep the championship adverts while playing in the Premier League ?

    Hello, it's been 2 times that I download the files but every time,there is nothing files ! Is this normal ? Sorry for my english.

    how do you get rid of fm 2009 boards ? they are showing at low level clubs?
  • Bartdude's avatar
    When Jeff Hayes posted his files I assumed they were with permission from yourself. They clearly weren't. Also although I like JH for his enthusiasm,creating config files is clearly not his forte,with many errors and zero proof reading. My adboard pack is massive and highly personalised with static boards numbered,not named,so there is no way I would revert to the FM16 pack. However there is no need as I have corrected the paths for the videoboards I require and everything now shows as it should. I apologise for the confusion and as the pioneer for this addition to FM you deserve the credit and I look forward to further updates,should you choose to create them.

    Bartdude, there are not even Brighton or Huddersfield folders for vides ads let alone anything in the code! I think you are either mixed up with something else or are not using the FM16 ad patch. Either way you are not using the files I uploaded. Jeff Hays has nothing to do with what I uploaded. Suggest you delete what you have and use my files as they are.

    Hi Jeff,I've been through my config file and found some path repeats for the videoboards so the Arsenal/Man U boards are now displaying correctly. As regards Brighton and Huddersfield,they both have folders included in the simatchviewer_uncompressed file from Jeff Hayes. The Brighton folder has an "amex.ivf" file and the Huddersfield folder has an "ope.ivf" file,so I assumed it was all set to go when the videoboard paths had been added to the config file ?
  • jroberts's avatar
    Hi Bartdude, no video ad boards have been done for Brighton or Huddersfield. Not sure how you are seeing Man U boards at Arsenel. Checked the code and it all looks good. No change since FM17 and this is the first mention of it
  • Bartdude's avatar
    Also a new config file needs to be written that includes unique placing codes for the video boards,as currently some are identical,which means for example you'll be getting Man Utd Chrysler boards appearing when watching Arsenal at home and that ain't good !! Lol. A great concept Jeff,only let down by a dated and carelessly written config file,so not your fault. Keep up the good work !
  • Bartdude's avatar
    I'm not getting the logic of this. There are updated video boards by Jeff,available elsewhere yet the config.file suggested is old and does not cover them,i.e.Brighton and Huddersfield. I have already updated to the later boards in my more up to date config file but I still need additional lines to display the above mentioned teams video boards.

    I've downloaded this and followed the instructions and as chelsea all im getting is red lines on the advertising boards. when looking into the simatchveiwer_uncompressed folder all the sub folders are empty is this why i'm getting the red lines?
  • Triffid's avatar
    Excellent! Thanks.
    However in the National League in England all of the clubs have only one adboard... and it's for Football Manager 2008!! Don't think that is intended.
  • jroberts's avatar
    Will do Fratto1987. Next update which will be when I get around to it, before anyone asks
  • Fratto1987's avatar

  • jroberts's avatar
    Hi GoddyLP, I have re-checked the files and all is correct. Can you make sure that all the videos ads are there in each folder?
  • GoddyLP's avatar

In the folder there are different files and in the xml too but the video adboard never changed...just the betfair ad. i played in leverkusen too and here i only got the audi video adboard. where is my mistake ?
