    Background request

    I'm not 100% sure how to create my own background, so I'll ask here if anyone can provide one. What I want is just a blank background of a solids color that doesn't conflict with any of the writing on the screen, maybe like a black or dark blue or something. I find it super annoying having to struggle to read my players' stats because the background photos have some conflicting colors or something else that obscures the letters, and I don't really care about the background pictures anyway.

    If anyone has a recommendation for some very neutral backgrounds, that would be awesome. I don't mind having some pictures, just not something crazy.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: What I posted wont work.


    Open your pics.cfg file (in the pictures folder) and under every heading plainblue.rgn

    Save and add the file below to the pictures folder

    File - http://www.sendspace.com/file/kb3t41

    Go into the Data folder and cut files with the .mbr file extension and paste them into the Championship Manager 01-02 folder (in case you want to add them back in)

    You whole background will now be the background in the link.

    Alternatively read this tutorial and create your own http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showth...s-to-your-Game

    Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure I got the first bit. Under every heading *what* plainblue.rgn? What must be done in the .cfg file? Add the line "plainblue.rgn"?

    Under every heading add plainblue.rgn

    Example of heading [NATION], [STADIUM] etc.

    Yeah that works, replace default_pic.rgn with any other picture by renaming your selected .rgn file to default_pic.rgn and do as Goofy as says and turn off backgrounds changes (in this instance rename the plainblue.rgn to default_pic.rgn)

    Background Requests

    I might be blind but I can't find the background request thread.

    Can some kind graphic guru create a background for me? It would be just the club badge below with the rest a matching blue. Thanks in advance chaps, would take you guys a few seconds but beyond me

    I'm not sure what size you wanted. I made a 800 x 600 and 1200 x 800

    Hi , i 'd like to have a nice background for 1200*800 to use as default background ( no background changes ) that is is easy for the eyes . purple & black as main colours ( nice contrast with attributes ) would be good.

    still couldn't find what file cm01/02 uses as default background . default01 or default02. rng ?

    I agree.

    As I recall, in the past there were separate sticky threads for both background requests and menubar requests. Is that something that could happen again?

    Cheers,

    the white text could perhaps get in the way of the game's text, class picture though

    I'm looking for a specific menubar and background

    Have me excused if I put this in wrong category.

    [ see link for image ] http://imgur.com/8hHcQfy

    On my previous PC I had this menubar and background. Now I've got a new PC, I've found the font (stentiga) but I've been searching for days now without results for the menubar and the background pic.

    I've downloaded the game, the patch .68 + autumn 2013 database have been updated. I also downloaded the Tapani patch, don't remember if 2.18 or 2.19. The game runs as it did on my previous PC without problems, but as described I have no idea where to find this menubar and background pic.

    I remember I picked it up from a user who was asking another one which menubar/pic he used.

    Hope someone can help.

    Note; I remember when playing and looking at the squad menu, I had 3 columns listed with the squad, not 2 as in the original. If that makes any sense of what I should download to get things as on my previous PC.

    Thanks mate, just figured it out. As described in the link, I just had to download the background and menubars, put them in my data folder, then run the tapani patch.

    For anyone wondering, the default pic is stored in the data folder as default_pic.rgn . Replacing the file is the same as the menubars.
