Hey guys, lately it seems that having "dark mode" is becoming a trend in software, so I got inspired by this trend and started to work on some GFX for my CM game that I wanted to share with you. Here are some screenshots:

Love the design, don’t suppose you have any of the backgrounds in 1366 x 768?

Considering that this is a remix and not a release, open the pics file and copy and paste to your pics file. Also, if you have the Vol. 1 you already have the Copa America and CONMEBOL BGs.

For it to work need to install all three volumes and the third volume has the complete pic.cfg, right?

Now with your RGB codes, why are the subs (and in the tactics screen the players who have been brought off) unreadable?

I tried 128, 128, 128 for the big buttons (ie OK, Next), drop down menus

That made the greyed out reserve players visible again.

You can make it work separately no problem but my idea is to make a "dark mode" as possible as the game allows, but the pack is sort of a "work in process" (the volumes will eventually complete a full piece).

The idea is to complete as much as I can of the game (there are gonna be clubs and leagues left behind due to a lack of crests online), but at least I'll cover the playable ones entirely.

When you download the zip it to copy directly to your pictures folder and the pics.cfg already has the data for the previous volumes so you don't have to copy and paste the data from the one on the zip to the one on your cpu.

Now I have one more problem.

The tactics screen looks good:

However, when I look at the played games the awful blue buttons are still there. Any idea why they are still dark blue and how to change that?

how i Instal this?

For the BG's:
Unzip the file > go to the pictures folder > select all of the files and copy them > Open the pictures folder inside your Championship Manager 01-02 Folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02) > Paste (if asked give adm permissions to it so they can move) > Done

For de Menubars:

Unzip the file > go to the menubars folder > select all of the files and copy them > Open the Data folder inside your Championship Manager 01-02 Folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02) > Paste (if asked give adm permissions to it so they can move) > Done

For the other volumes of background pictures repeat the process as the pics.cfg file already contains all of the previous information :D

Just started back on my CM01/02 journey. I really like the dark mode images here, but does anyone care to share an idiot-proof step by step guide to installing these for the various standard resolutions? Presumably, everyone prefers higher resolution than the standard 800x600 though?

To put this plainly I would really like to play this game on the best resolution I can and install ideally nice background images/menu bar etc like the ones shown in this thread. If anyone can help with that it would be very much appreciated. I have actually started a game with Aberdeen, which isn't a team these backgrounds have been set up for I don't think. Does that make a difference?

I think many people prefer 800x600. I used to play with 1280x800 but now Im likeing the default 800x600 better as its more compact, and i can put it in the corner of the screen and work on other stuff at the same time.

samsami
12-07-19, 06:44 PM
It would still be good to have an "idiot-proof step by step guide" as dabla 27 calls it.

I managed to install it but it wasn't very easy and I have already forgotten how I did it.

I will answer to the “idiot-proofing” below. I’m glad people like the packs, considering that the ratio would be all off. But since there is people who would like a bigger resolution, I could try to mod the PSD files to fit it, but it would probably be at a slower pace than the 800x600 packs

To your game, download this zip. It has the Aberdeen, Scotland and SPL RGNs and just copy paste it into your pics.cfg file (I’m adding the SPL to the coming soon so you can enjoy your game)

Thanks, I figured out that you need to download the other packs first or you won't get any of the work done before V4. A great little mod but agree that each update should be a complete release and not rely on you already having every previous version.

Yeah, you are probably right. So I'm thinking that with Vol. 5 I will also do a full release of what has been don so far. So that way those who have been downloading it one by one can just what they are missing, and those like you who have some later can get everything in one download.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, it really helps to see what I can do to make it easier to follow.

Ps: Vol 5. is in the works, I know that I've taken longer with this but I've been busy. So I think that a friday/saturday is feasible.

Very nice, thanks.
Quick question though, does CM Color tool not work with the official patch (3.9.65) as it just will not save the color changes. It loads the cm0102.exe and lets me change the rgb values and press 'ok' but when I load the game it doesn't work. Everytime I load up the CM Color tool. the rgb values are always back to default (just will not save the numbers I have put in)

I ask as it says nothing about needing any of the cm0102 patches to be able to use the tool in the download description: https://champman0102.co.uk/downloads.php?do=file&id=38

But I tried installing the unofficial patch 3.9.68 to check myself. Then with that patch installed, when I tried the CM Color tool it worked first time (it actually saved my rgb inputs, and worked in game too) But with that patch installed it changes the database to the 2002/03 season with a 2001 start date (As it's not an official patch. I think who ever made it also did a season update) I'm looking to just use the default 2001/02 database, with Keegans insane Man City Div 1 squad.

So I uninstalled and reinstalled cm0102 to get the database back to default, and tried the color changer tool again but it won't work.. so I am assuming it needs 3.9.68 to work.. which is a shame as I really like the look of this skin setup :(

I would try using CM Color as administrator (right click on it, run as administrator) and if that doesn't work, you can go to the Technical Support forum where people waaaaaayyyy more skilled than me :p will gladly help you bro https://champman0102.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=10

Hey guys. Thanks a lot to everyone for doing such a great work and share it with us.
I have three questions concerning the dark mode, if somebody could answer.

A) Is the Dark mode compatible with Tapani 2.21.1 patch?
B) In order to be completed, you have to download only the latest of the versions or one by one?
C) The background is only for the league tables and competitions or for the in-team backgrounds (squad, training etc)?

Thanks in advance.

B) Currently you still have to download them all. When it's finished he will put everything in one ZIP-file
C) The background is for everything.

Thanks for the info Samsami.
I suppose you don't know about Compatibility with Tapani? or it doesn't matter what kind of cm0102.exe we use?

I don't think so. It worked well for me with the Saturn patch as you can see in my latest story.

Hi guys, I’m finally back and finally I will be able to drop a new Volume in the Dark Mode bg’s. I wanted to apologize for taking this long to finally get this one done but I’ve had a ton of “new things” in my life that have taken some serious time away from me, so I had to make some decisions. So finally, here it is volume 6 (don’t worry, I will continue with it but probably at a slower rate for the time being, so sorry):

The .zip includes:
Argentinean Div.2
Brazilian Div.2
Chilean other teams (teams with no division)
Scottish Div.1 (including national team, and domestic cups)
United States other teams 1 (this was done solely fc I really liked the LAFC design and found out that the MLS has 3 lower divisions, so if you don’t want to clog your hard drive with these, feel free to delete them)
If anyone is interested in the RGB codes for my game (with a bit of tweaking thanks to Samsami), here's a screenshot of my CM Color:

Intructions:
In order to get every image remember to download the previous releases (links below) preferably in order since there is 1 file that will continuously be overwritten with each pack.

1- Download the packs
2- Open and extract the packs
3- Copy the files inside the folder
4- Paste as Administrator the file inside the Pictures folder in your CM instalation
(C:\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02\Pictures)
5- Allow to replace the pics.cfg file so it can be overwritten, don't worry about losing info each pack has a pics.cfg file that contains all of the data from the previous releases (if you have other packs or like the original pictures you might need to copy and paste into your own pics.cfg file manually)
6- Make sure everything is ready and fire up your CM, enjoy!

Thank you very much for the packs.

I'm having a problem with the background of Spain La Liga and CL, they don't show up when you on their page.
Is there any solution for this problem?

thanks in advance!

I have downloaded Vol 1 and copied it into the pictures folder on the the program files.

How do you then select the darkmode options on the game? I am running version 3.9.68

can this ne done on a saved game or is it only available on a new game?

It should work on a save file. It did on mine.

I installed all six packs: https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=13503&p=468964#post468964

It's wonderful stuff. Hope it will become available soon in one Zip-file.

Just had to do a reinstall from the six zip-files and I have forgotten why (and if) it's necessary to install them all seperately and in the right order and if putting the lot into one Zip-file would cause problems or not?

Sorry guys for being away for so long, quarentine is kicking my ass right now. But I'm still working on it. A small update:

I will be posting a massive zip (hopefully sometime soon) with an updated set of backgrounds, the reason for the update is that I noticed that some backgrounds weren't exactly where they should be and in some screens of the game they looked odd (sorry, a bit of OCD there).

I was thinking about what the best approach would be for the changes but eventually just realized that the massive zip replacing everything posted so far would be a better strategy for it.

Sorry for coming back empty handed but I promise this will get done.

Hey guys, ok?

I would like to know, why even though the pics file is correct, the last champion appears in the game instead of the competition logo?

Has anyone managed to fix this?

thank you

It's already available, the first six volumes, in six separate ZIP files (https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=12526&p=468820#post468820).

As Kubz said, he will put everything in one large ZIP file, which makes it easier to install.

As it says in the same post CM-Color should be used to edit the menu colors.

Hey guys, I've been working a lot on the changes, but I keep planning more surprises, but maybe I can ease the wait a bit. This is my current Picture folder, most of the pack is the same but I think at least 4 have been updated to the new style I was mentioning, english 3rd is new and comps have been updated.

My recommendation is that if you haven't any other packs in your folder, delete the content completely and then copy it whole.

I've just downloaded the large zip and got the same issue... how do we force the game to load the new backgrounds, not the originals?
