View Full Version : Background Requests

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/showthread.php?1341-Adding-Backgrounds-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"?

Dermotron
26-07-12, 04:30 PM
Under every heading add plainblue.rgn

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

Be easier just to turn off background changes in settings :lol:

:lol:

What background is the default then Goof? There's one there with the goal mouth when you switch them off


EDIT: Its never default_pic.rgn??? :lol:

Dermotron
26-07-12, 08:02 PM
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)

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 :lol:

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?

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.

27-12-13, 01:11 PM
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.

Mike Clatternburg
16-02-14, 02:39 AM
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.

Ze's is the only one so far. The option to use that resolution is only available 2 months and given the time it takes to compile one it will be a while before there's a complete one yet imo.

12-09-14, 03:45 PM
Thats a fair point..... does anyone know of any good websites to get some competition backgrounds from?

I finding it hard to find ones for League 1 and 2 aswell as conference etc... in this resolution that is.....

Dermotron
12-09-14, 03:51 PM
The resolution is not important really, the aspect ratio is the most important. So any resolution here is fine to use, they will just need resizing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16:9#Common_resolutions

Obviously larger images tend to be of better quality but you can find decent pictures at lower sizes that will scale up fine.

I am having trouble changing my BMP files into RGN files. I am using a 1400*900 resolution with the Tapani patch but when I try to change 1400*900 BMPs into RGN fils they turn out all black and the game becomes rather unplayable. (I followed the guide in this of the forum).

Is it possible someone can upload just a simple 1400*900 RGN file? I do no want anything fancy, just some plain picture which will allow for easy reading of the text.

Thanks in advance!

Please does anyone have a standard background I can use at my resolution - 1280x720 ready made? I can send a background to be converted to RGN if required.

Just need a standard background as I won't have background changes enabled. I have made some backgrounds myself however I am unable to convert to RGN and I now understand that the RGN Converter tool only converts from RGN rather than to RGN.

Any help would be massively appreciated!

Is there a background pack with the club's and stadium's pictures (like the 2015/2016) and the pictures for the ODB players? Just to know. I love the 2015/2016 but I would like to have the pictures for some of the great players of that time.

Any size background for 1024x600 - seems to be working except for ghosting on the main screen (using no menubars, but they don't appear to be "overwriting" each other).

This https://i.ytimg.com/vi/5Xg_iDKXcYc/maxresdefault.jpg or any "default" or non-descript background please. I'm okay with image overlap onto the menubar, so 1024x600 resolution image should be what I'm looking for. Just can't seem to get it working myself...

Anyone with the skills to create background pictures like in those two links above? (don't know how to post pictures in this forum nowadays)

These are from Kubz 2012 project and what I like about them is that not only are they visually appealing but also the logo melts into the background which doesn't make it interfere with the text on the screen like many other logo backgrounds.

I would love to have som pictures like these with national team logos, or any idea how I could make them myself?

Thanks

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)

I don't get this. I have made a plain grey image 800x600. I have loaded it to the piced and it has produced a RGN file. I have looked in the pictures folder but I dont have a default_pic file only default01 or default02 so which do I rename? I have turned background changes off too. It just stays on the pic of the back of the goal net

Dermotron

change whichever one is the grey background to default_pic.rgn and move it to the DATA folder - that's were the default background and the loading screen images are kept
