    Things to Know When Adding Pictures

    while creating my megapack i've realized a few things about adding backgrounds to the game, i will post them here in order to help anyone who would like to do the same in the future and/or to be corrected if i'm saying something wrong.


    - when you add a picture for a stadium that is used by a national side, every other picture added to the nation won't be showed in that nation's pages, buw will just be showed to players from that nation who don't have a picture of them.

    - the note about competition written in pic file (# NOTE: {} denotes pictures to display when comp is won) is not working, i tried many ways but nothing is showed when you use {}.

    - some multiple divisions (for example turkish 2.division category B) that have different groups at the same level can't have a picture, neither if you set one picture each for every group, nor if you use a single picture for the whole division.

    - fifa ranking (uses a random nation's picture), uefa coefficient (uses champions league's picture), world cup awards (uses world cup pictures) and world cup qualifyings (uses world cup pictures) can't have a related picture.

    - transfers section in pic file can't be linked to a part of the game.

    - trophy section pictures are those showed in history window every team has.


    any feedback appreciated

    Thanks for this info Milo.

    I myself, have been trying to add a specific background when the News screen is shown, but I can't figure out how to do this. I've tried to add a News category to the Pics file using Notepad but this doesn't seem to work.

    i also tried something like that for fifa rankings & euro coefficient and also for club info but nothing works.
    probably those windows have a particular name in the game exe and in my opinion you need to use just that name in the pic file to make it work

    I have a question, when writing the pics.cfg what do you do if you have 2 stadiums with the same name, but in different cities or should I put them under the club name instead of the stadium name

    if you put them under the club name the picture will be showed in the club page, not during a match like other stadiums.

    there is nothing you can do, that picture will be showed for all the stadium with that name

    so if a Nation has a stadium pic set then that is the only thing that shows for that country??
    no flag will show if you have put in it with the country?
    poor show that.

    what if you just have the flag set, will the stadium they show at still show up when they play international games? and the flag at the squad screens?

    surely if you put a flag in, that won't show when they are playing at a stadium that is in game?

    if you set no picture for the stadium but you have a flag for the nation, when you play at that stadium you will be shown the competition's picture (e.g. friendly, world cup, etc.)

    this is a huge flaw then,
    and total pish.

    the only nation flags that are gonna show up are the shitty little nations without stadium pics then.
    no point in adding flags etc for more well know countries.

    i fucking hate this game sometimes........

    sent marc vaughan a email about this milo,

    here is the reply,


    It sounds like a bug - however you can easily work around it most likely by creating a second stadium and then using that exclusively for the national stadium (ie. two "bernabau" stadiums).
    I can't recall quite how we matched up stadiums in that version - I've a sneaking suspicion it was the 'raw names' - if so try putting a space at the end (it'll be invisible) to differentiate between the two.


    Hope this helps,


    Marc

    i think you just add them in the picced tbh, then they just show up as random,
    same as players pictures when their DOB is not valid anmymore and doesn't match when we roll the DB, they still show up but it's random and not on the player.
    I have added pictures before and wanted them to be randon, pretty sure i just added them in the picced but never game them a config, sure that's how it's done.

    - - - Updated - - -

    will pics that dont have a config, or match their config [as a result of a DB roll] not just show up in the news screen?

    in my pack there are 2-3 pictures (the @ ones) linked to nothing in the pic file but they aren't showed in game.

    i just put them in to be randomly assigned but looks like that doesn't work at all... so i have no answers to you mate
