Hi

I've downloaded the 5-pack background and placed into the pictures folder. But all I get now is a black background and it's impossible to play because every new screen clicked on has the previous one right behind it?

I've downloaded premiership background pictures before and even put in my own and have seemed to work. I have Vista (unfortunately).

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Those backgrounds are only compatible with the Tapani 2.19 patch and 1280*800 resolutions option selected. If you haven't applied the patch or selected the new resolution they will not work

Where did you download the Mega Pics pack from? and do you have a pics.cfg file that you are copying from your download to your pics folder?

Filippo
05-07-12, 04:17 AM
Downloaded the mega pic pack from the link 4shared.. yeah there is a pics.cfg file in along with all the pics. I just copied and pasted it along with all the pics into the actual pictures folder. Thats where i'm at just now.....

It really is as easy as placing the pics plus the corresponding .cfg file into your Pictures folder. You have unzipped the pictures?

it should look like this:

Do i have to open the piced file at any point in this process? I thought that was for pictures that i added solo myself and not from downloading packs? The pictures that are already on the game show in the pictures folder as '214525.RGN' for example but when i've pasted the pics from the downloaded pack the show as what you can see in the last 2 screen shots i've added and still no joy... am i missing something obvious?

Dermotron
05-07-12, 11:47 AM
delete 'pics.cfg'

rename 'pics (2).cfg' to 'pics.cfg'.

You never removed the old one before adding the new pics.cfg meaning its referencing the old one.

Me again, i'm trying to make my own backgrounds. I conveted the jpeg files into BMP and i followed your instructions, but when i open the piced file i can't find the files anywhere. Help, please

Dermotron
04-08-12, 02:32 PM
Click on the line called Directory and type in where the folder is.

So if have them stored somewhere like My Documents, you will need to type in something like C:\Users\admin\Documents


The best thing to do would be to open My Computer > C drive and create a folder called pics and add all the .bmp's in there. Then in Directory you only need to type C:\pics

http://i898.photobucket.com/albums/ac186/Lowskys/CM0102/piced1.jpg

When you load them in piced, and save them, they will be stored in you Championship Manager 01-02\pictures folder as .rgn files

Evening gentlemen, just a quick one.

I've put 2 of my local teams on Champ and me and a mate are playing as both and I have put both ourselves into each team we are managing.

I'm comfortable setting up pics (got one for each team page and one of grounds for home games) but am having trouble with pics of myself and me mate when we click on the players.
I've followed the notepad instructions (see below) to no avail so was hoping one of you could point in the right direction please......

Hi guys,
i have a new laptop with a 1920x1080 resolution. I have tapani2.19 my CM for the 1280x800 resolution and I have the game on windowed setting.

I keep getting the black background. On my old laptop (with a lower resolution) i had the above settings and got the default pic with a training pitch at night. Which is what i want.

I have used tapani to go back to the original resolution and I see this background pic, just not on the 1280x800 resolution.

Any ideas?

In the 2.19 Patch thread: http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php/1434-2-19-Tapani-Patch

There is a hyperlink for the files you need to make the new resolution work with backgrounds etc, ive highlighted in the pic below.

Download and place in your data folder and all should be good

I'm playing about with backgrounds at the minute, and am using the 1280x800 patch.

I've managed to install a new menubar, which seems to be working fine. This also appears in piced1280 when opened.

However, I want to install a new background picture, but am having problems saving it in piced.exe


Here's what I've done...

Got a 1280x800 backgorund picture, in 24bit BMP format (saved as basic.bmp)
Opened up piced1280.exe and loaded up background BMP image (inserted 'pictures' as folder, and selected 'basic' file)
Me new background image appears on screen
So now, I goto 'save' > 'background'
I can input filename etc, but there is no 'OK' button along the bottom to confirm the process

For what it's worth, I cannot exit the piced.exe program via the button either.... I have to press Esc (or open task manager)

What am I doing wrong?

fastglass
17-05-13, 06:16 PM
Ok, Ok, I've sorted it!

What I had to do to fix the problem, was to goto 'save' > 'background'

Then to click on the folder path (where it did say 'pictures') and select a different folder (i.e. 'data')

It then let me insert the new filename, and also let me choose 'OK' at the bottom.

Problem solved!

Im sorry if this has been answered before, but I cant see it

I have added numerous background pics - grounds etc and they have all worked fine

but im having a problem with adding { } to a background name in the cfg file, for when something is won. Either a league title or European player of year etc

When should this pic be shown? is it when the winner is mentioned in your news or when you look at past winners or somewhere else

and any idea why is this doesn't seem to be working in either sense for me? am I right in that it should be written like this - {pic}.rgn as opposed to {pic.rgn}

any help with this would be great as everything else seems to work fine

Thanks

Hi! Im really having difficult time with managing to get the megapic files i downloaded into my cm0102. Can i just unzipp the files into picture folder one by one or alltogether? Until now i have only after unzipping at another location, copy pasted them in in the pic folder but thats not working. i have removed the old pics, cfig but still wont work. Hugely appreciated if any kind soul out there could help me...

Remove the old files, add the new and when you load the game go to Game Settings and change Background Changes to On

khalbala
15-07-13, 05:05 PM
When i do that then it the background gets black..and any other action after that is printed on the screen so its not working...something with the resolusion? my laptom have only 1200x768 and not 800...makes any diffrence? Also i must have the screen resolution on 1200x800 in order for it to work?

Dermotron
15-07-13, 05:11 PM
Yes since that background pack is for 1280*800 resolution. If you have it set to 800*600 it won't load correctly.

You could download some 800*600 background images and install those instead since your laptop screen is too small to load the 1280*800 resolution

khalbala
15-07-13, 05:15 PM
But if i connect it to a screen large enough then it would solve the problen?

Dermotron
15-07-13, 05:21 PM
Yeah that should work. You'll need to uninstall the 2.19 patch and then add it again with 1280*800 set. If you don't uninstall 1st the date of births in the game will be wrong

khalbala
15-07-13, 05:29 PM
Sorry i dont follow...u mean that theres a patch 2.19 especially made for 1200x800 or do u mean load the data for that resolution. Cuz that i have done but the patch first and then data for 1200x800 resolution...

Dermotron
15-07-13, 05:37 PM
To change the resolution you must change it when in installing the patch

http://i898.photobucket.com/albums/ac186/Lowskys/1280x800_zpse57d42b0.jpg (http://s898.photobucket.com/user/Lowskys/media/1280x800_zpse57d42b0.jpg.html)

Without this change the 1280*800 backgrounds will not load. This is the only way to generate the 1280*800 interface. If you prefer not to play with this interface you can leave the resolution at 800*600 or not install the patch, but you will need backgrounds suitable for the 800*600 resolution, same as you need backgrounds suitable for the 1280*800, you can't mix and match I'm afraid.

That did it..i connected another screen..but very ugly format thou.. what format are the original cm pictrures in? 800x600? i would like only to have the stadiums for the old game.

I hope someone can help me. I am quite stupid with computers, so I am sorry if there is an obvious answer. I have in the past downloaded the stadium background pack and did everything right. And it worked. I have had some problems With my computer and downloaded CM0102 again and all the updates. (Tapani 2.19, March 2013 update, 3,68...) I have now downloaded the backgrounds again, but when I shall save the pics.cfg file, it doesn't work. It seems that I don't have any "administrator rights"... I have "right clicked" the file, and unlocked the attributes. Can anyone help me to get "administrator rights" on the game?

Just wondered if anyone could help me with editing the pics.cfg file - I have allocated .RGN files to many players but the only ones that do not work are players that have accents in their names eg. Thomas Müller, Mario Götze etc. I have also tried using a normal letter which still does not work.

Does anyone have a workaround/answer for this please? Thanking you in advance!

01-09-13, 09:44 PM

Luca
02-09-13, 07:31 AM
Sorry - having trouble attaching pictures.

For example, the pics.cfg file reads Thomas Müller 14/9/1978: Muller_Thomas.RGN - as it should.

However, the background does not work in-game. I have tried removing the umlaut from the "u" in Müller but to no avail.

This is the case for players like Andrés Iniesta, Jesús Navas and Franck Ribéry, so I can only assume that it is the accents that are playing up.

Apologies if this is in the wrong section, or the answer is somewhere within the existing threads.

I downloaded the stadium pack and I'm having serious difficulty in saving the images so they appear in the game. As far as I am aware I have followed the instructions correctly.

My understanding is that I am supposed to copy the text into the pics.cfg file and save, although when I try to save it says 'Access Denied'. Any ideas why? I have unticked the file from read-only, and i'm also running as administrator so I have no idea what the problem is.

Any help much appreciated!

milo
04-11-13, 11:20 AM
probably the folder where you installed the game is not ''free'', you should run that as administrator.

otherwise a quick solution is to save the pic file somewhere else, for example on the desktop, and then move it to your folder

DannyLFC
04-11-13, 11:50 AM

no problem with accents, be sure you copy exact name and DoB in the editor, 99% of issues are about name and DoB

18-02-14, 09:17 PM
Found the problem.

I am on a Linux machine, Arch with Openbox to be precise. I have been using leafpad to edit the config file and realised the difference in language was creating a mismatch with accents.

Luckily wine allows me use notepad to edit the file so all is good.

Thank you for the help :ok:

Hi Chaps,

Have only just stumbled across this glorious website and will be back for more now that i've been able to update my favourite ever game. Thanks to all those with far better skills than me to keep it updated and introduce new innovations.

I have one small problem - installing .rgn files to add backgrounds to the game. I know i've done this in the past on previous versions without so much kerfuffle but am struggling.

I'm running 01/02 with c3.968 with Tap v2.19 update AND the 2013 data update. I've downloaded the picture files, copied the .rgn files into the picture folder but I can't find the pic.cfg file to paste in the notepad data to get the game to recognise the images.

This would be the icing on the cake for me if someone could show me how.

:welcome: to the site

Which pictures pack have you downloaded?
The 1200x800 one requires the tapani patch to work.

Also, most of them come with a complete pictures folder, which is best used to replace your existing pictures folder, rather than updating it which will mean there are two pics.cfg files.
[C:\Program files\Championship Manager 01-02/Pictures]<<---------- delete the existing one and replace it :ok:

The 800x600 requires no patch but this is still the best method for applying it.

Hope this helps.

Stick around and get involved in some of the other threads, the games and stories here are great fun and if you are interested, there's a network games section where you can play cm0102 against other lovers of the best game ever.

I have a query regarding the pics.cfg file...

If I have one generic background I want to use most of the time, but then add a specific background for a few players, how do you set the cfg file so that these specific player backgrounds don't show when clicking on OTHER players? E.g. if I have a background for Wayne Rooney, I don't want his background to appear when clicking on other random players.

I know there is a 'Misc' option in the cfg file and I've set this up to show my 'default' pic under the STAFF header in the file, however this doesn't work once you start adding the specific player backgrounds to the same section. Am I missing something, is there anything I can do to control this?

Dermotron
26-04-14, 10:32 AM
You can change the default_pic.rgn in the data folder. I think this what you are trying to achieve

dw82
26-04-14, 11:02 AM
No Dermotron, I have the default_pic.rgn as I want it...

Basically what I have done so far is set up specific background pics for 5 Man Utd players.

I want the default pic to appear on each screen I click in-game, EXCEPT for those players I'm specifically assigning. So when I view the screen of Rooney, Fellaini, Mata, Van Persie, Januzaj, I see their pics because I've assigned the relevant one to them in the pic file. However if I click on, say, Chris Smalling, I want it to just revert to the default background but it doesn't, it shows one of the other players at random.

This is the instruction I have in the relevant section of the cfg file

[STAFF]
Misc: default_pic.RGN
Wayne Rooney 24/10/1973: Rooney.RGN
Adnan Januzaj 5/2/1983: Januzaj.RGN
Juan Mata 28/4/1976: Mata.RGN
Robin van Persie 6/8/1971: VanPersie.RGN
Marouane Fellaini 22/11/1975: Fellaini.RGN

But it seems to ignore the Misc instruction in this case? And yes, I do have a copy of the default_pic.RGN file in my Pictures folder too.

Dermotron
26-04-14, 11:05 AM
With you now. Hmmm, I never did find this out either. From what I can see it picks from randomly from the current player pool.

I guess one way to test would be to check against a fresh install and see what pics load there as there are none assigned to players.



The extreme option would be Database Exporter > list all players and DOB's > set them all the same picture. A bit extreme though :lol:

I guess one way to test would be to check against a fresh install and see what pics load there as there are none assigned to players.



The extreme option would be Database Exporter > list all players and DOB's > set them all the same picture. A bit extreme though :lol:

Indeed, that's essentially what I'm aiming for!

After a bit more testing myself, I'm learning more about how it works.
Basically, with 5 player lines and one misc line under the STAFF heading, when clicking on a 'random' player, it will only show the default/misc pic 1 out of 6 times, because yes it does seem to randomly bring up a pic from that section. So the 'Misc' instruction isn't an absolute, it just gives you another option in that section.

What I did do as a test was copy and paste LOADS more Misc: default_pic.RGN lines under the STAFF section of the cfg and this helped as it makes it much more likely the default pic gets displayed for a random player, which also confirms it just loads a pic at random from the list of instructions in that section.

Shame that the 'Misc' instruction doesn't essentially mean - load this pic unless specifically instructed not to.

I have a query regarding the pics.cfg file...

If I have one generic background I want to use most of the time, but then add a specific background for a few players, how do you set the cfg file so that these specific player backgrounds don't show when clicking on OTHER players? E.g. if I have a background for Wayne Rooney, I don't want his background to appear when clicking on other random players.

I know there is a 'Misc' option in the cfg file and I've set this up to show my 'default' pic under the STAFF header in the file, however this doesn't work once you start adding the specific player backgrounds to the same section. Am I missing something, is there anything I can do to control this?

add to the pic file a picture for every nation (even the default one), that should work :ok:

add to the pic file a picture for every nation (even the default one), that should work :ok:

Good shout, this works too... did a bit more testing and yes if you click on a player with no pic assigned, it will instead show the background of their nationality if one is assigned so this is a really handy shortcut too to achieve what I'm trying to do! Cheers.

Hi All,

Anybody able to help me please? I'm trying to add some background pictures to my game, I've download some packs from here. I've also created some background pics myself.

However, when I make any additions to the pics.cgf file to include the new background images, it screws up the display within the game. I've attached a sample below. You can see how it doesn't clear away previous image, it's sitting underneath the image currently displaying.


http://i.imgur.com/bGzbeOMl.jpg

Anybody got any suggestions as to why this is happening? Very frustrating! I've checked that I'm putting in the correct names for stadiums, staff, or club, depending on which one I want to add a background for, but it just messes up every time. Below is the pics.cfg file where I've added in Porto.

I curious . . . In the Picture Editor there are references to Help Images and History Images. Also, there is that button to preview History Images, but the game doesn't load anything by default by the looks of it. Given the various dimension requirements, I can't figure out what these pictures might be used for or where they appear in the game. Are they part of the interface, like the menu bar? What might you want to do with them to cutomise the game?

Dermotron
12-09-14, 06:46 PM
When installing you have the option to install History, this adds snippets of information about certain clubs and players. It appears as Written History under the players lsit tab on the club screen. Most just hit Custom when installing and leave it out, which is probably why there is nothing there.

However when I go to start the game I just get a black screen and the game menu wont pop up. I have to quit the application via the task manager screen to escape. The game works fine without copying the pack into the picture files.

but you can set one for all the nations (repeat the same for every nation in the pics file), this way if a club has no picture the nation pic will be shown, and if a player doesn't have a picture, the club picture will be shown (and if that club has no picture you will see the one of the nation)

cool. i'll try another although i can't get 2.18 to download.

edit: more accurately, i can't get anything from 4shared to download.

edit 2: nope. can't get any of them to work. nor the JLpatch. all i want to do is change the colour of attributes.

i'm a mac user who employs playonmac to install & run the game. most other .exe files work (CMExplorer, CMScout, GK Editor, .68 patch) but when i run the tapani 2.19 patch using playonmac, i get an error message.

when installing it on a windows machine, can you do it after you've started playing a game?

which of these files alters the attribute colour? and what do you do with it?

apologies for the many questions. i don't have a lot of time to play the game most of the year so in those small windows, i try to cram as much in as i can.

this is what i have inside the JL Patch folder:

none of this seems to "run" with playonmac because none are .exe files. what would you do with it on a windows machine? which of these files would you put where?

They are java batch scripts I do believe so on windows it would be a case of installing java and then running any of the .bat files.

Why not just make the changes to an .exe on windows and copy it to mac? Would save you a load of trial and error

have java installed on the mac. when you say "run any of the .bat files"? where would you normally run them? i don't have the ability to "run" them on a mac.

i don't have access to a windows machine that i can do that - and to be honest, i'm not sure i have the technical ability to be able to do it.

Sounds like are changed Foreground1 and Foreground2, that's the text for the home and away colors. You need changed Background 1 for the main color of the home colors and Background2 for the main color of the away colors

tasty_snacks
04-03-15, 05:56 PM
Thanks chaps. The issue was that one of the colours just wouldn't change. Take AFC Wimbledon for example; yellow text on a dark blue background. I could amend the text colour with no dramas, but the dark blue background just wouldn't shift.

Anyways, I downloaded the GK editor and updated it once I started a new game as a workaround.

I've started to work on a logos and stadiums background pack for 1366 x 768. I think I remember reading somewhere that if a "pictures" folder is too large it may cause game instability. Thing is I get exactly 2MB per .rgn file and seeing as I plan to do backgrounds for all of the playable leagues and comps it is certain to end up being larger than 4GB. Where is the limit?

milo
08-03-15, 05:38 PM
no limit as far as i know

Goofy
08-03-15, 07:17 PM
There is a limit but all it does is stop you saving pics to the Pictures folder if you're using piced.exe, all you need to do is save to a different location then copy/paste or move the files over. Of course using Tapani's pic converter takes away that issue anyway :)

Good ol' Fodster... always pushing people's wrong buttons :lol:

scott1986, make sure you compress all the pics and the pics.cfg file into a single rar file. Then use one of two uploaders that Fodster provided. In the case of sendspace (https://www.sendspace.com/) you just need to browse your rar file and select upload. After that you get a download link. Copy that link and post it here/create a new graphics thread. Easy peasy :)
