2015-2016 PLAYERS AND MANAGERS PACK (800x600)
(updated for october 2015 database)


NO MORE AVAILABLE, NEW VERSION HERE (http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=7715&page=3&p=296747#post296747)


FEATURES

- the pack includes more than 5000 pictures
- every playable club has a badge
- every national team has a badge and a flag
- all the main stadiums in the world have at least one picture
- more than a thousand players have a picture in their national jersey
- all the most important managers have a picture
- every playable competition has a picture
- a few classic players, managers and teams pictures included


It's a very big file (850mb zipped and 4.8gb unzipped) so it will take you a while to download and to unzip.


INSTRUCTIONS: download it anywhere on your pc, extract and copy all the files to your ''pictures'' folder inside CM 01-02 main folder.

I've run many tests and everything is fine using a patch that reduces the cpu usage (like 2.19), otherwise using a clean database the game can sometimes freeze at the end of december.
Players and managers will be shown starting in 2001/02 or 2015/16.

The pictures are ordered by their genre (like this: x__yyyyy.RGN) and the first letter explains their content:

b = club badges
c = competitions
f = national flags
m = miscellaneous (mainly winners, training, etc.)
n = national badges
o = oldies
p = players and managers
s = stadiums

enjoy :ok:

your previous pictures won't be shown if they don't have a link in the pic file, plus you need to overwrite the old ones or you will have outdated pictures in game, so i suggest that you delete everything before pasting the new ones :ok:

Dermotron

Takes a few mins to load as it's 5gb of images

It only works using 800x600 resolution (default windowed mode) so no need to turn background changes off. If you turn that off you won't see any pics since background refers to in game background

NEW - also working with the last competition renaming patch by saturn (v1.2) (http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8231)



It's a very big file (860mb zipped and 4.9gb unzipped) so it will take you a while to download and to unzip.

A general question about the cfg-file, what happens if you have a club or staff/stadium twice? Like this:

Stadium of Light: Sunderland.cfg
Stadium of Light: Sunderland2.cfg

Will both pictures show in the game? The reason I ask is because I've added a lot of pics myself in my cfg-file, and I don't feel like downloading this and manually add the 300 pictures I have into this cfg-file.

milo
02-06-16, 10:52 AM
they will be shown if both are on the pics file linked to that team/player.

if you extract my pack in a folder where you already have other pictures yours won't be shown.

you need to edit my pic file adding yours, or you can delete my pictures with the same name and only yours will be in game :ok:

samsami
02-06-16, 10:55 AM

But if I understand correctly , the renaming league patch does not require editing you pic file, right?

Didn't work. I wrote this in the pics.cfg
Mesut zil 15/10/1974: p__ozil.RGN
Mesut zil 15/10/1974: mesut.RGN
only the last picture is loaded.

When you write
Mesut zil 15/10/1974: p__ozil.RGN, mesut.RGN
both is loaded.

So I'm wondering if you have a file with only the new pictures added since the last update, so I can add them manually?

The guy who created it won't be back on the forum for awhile.

There isn't a lot to do but change the DoB's by a year less, fix any club, player or stadium name changes.

Then just upload the edited pics.cfg for others to use

08-11-16, 03:22 PM
Yes, it says that in the OP and the download area. You are loading 5gb's of images into the cache of the game, probably takes 2-5 mins depending on your pc.

Is it on screen for all News items or just the odd one?

Another (probably daft) question. When the game loads up, after the oct 16 update pic the april 16 update pic appears right after it n also appears at randoms times when playing game. Not a biggie, just annoying.

I cant see an obvious explanation for why this is happening or how to fix, any ideas?

Without this updated version of the file (which should be saved in your Pictures folder) the Pack will not show any players or managers if you are using the October 2016 update.

I downloaded your .cfg file and dropped it in the folder, but it doesn't work, I just get a black screen. Is there something I've missed or something else I need to do?

Worked for me :confused:

You've already downloaded and extracted all the pictures to the Pictures folder?

Yeah as far as I know, I have a pictures folder which is 1.8gb in size, does that sound right?

That's too small, mine is 4.9 GB.

Scrub the whole Pictures folder and replace it with the files from this thread :ok:

It's a huge file as 316'sRegen said. Also, make sure you have Background Changes ON!

Apologies again for my ineptitude, I managed to get the backgrounds working for teams and stadiums, but players do not show up. Would this be to do with using a Tapani patch?

Now get samis file from post#107, extract it into your pics folder. (copy and replace obviously)

:cheer: the players and managers appear :cheer:

You need my file. Without it the club backgrounds work but the players won't appear.

Are you sure you have done all of the following:

1) Downloaded PiccConfig.zip
2) Extracted (unzipped) pics.cfg from the zip file
3) Copied pics.cfg to the folder called Pictures (with 5520 items in the folder)
4) Said "yes" when it asked you to overwrite the existing file (the one that did not work)

um.... :wave:

I didn't D/L PicConfig :peep:

What year shoiuld be the start year for your DOBs? I had to change my year back to 2015 to avoid the crash that starting in 2016 causes and now my player/manager pictures are gone.

I am probably being slow here as that was why you had to change the DOBs, right? To allow 2016 as the start year?
The only problem with that is that if you start the game in 2016 it crashes on 16th Jun. (using 2.21 patch)

Now I understand Saturn's patch can fix this, but because I've already hosted a session of the network game, I'm not going to tweak anything patch-wise at the moment.
Could anyone verify if Saturns 2.21.1 (i think that's right) exe modification will allow these players and managers faces to appear while starting in 2016? That's the next thing I would try colm, if I didn't have the net game ongoing :ok:

Also, if i revert to the original config file in milo's pack, will that fix it as they were probably designed for the 2015 start year?

Here's the thing:

1) The Players and Manager Pack was created for the 2015-2016 season and the October 2015 database. It only works for that database.
2) If you use the October 2016 database (like almost all of us do) you won't see the players or managers anymore because their dates of birth have changed by one year so they are no longer recognised.
3) My pics.cfg changes that. It is necessary for the Players and Managers Pack to work when you have the October 2016 game update installed.
4) However, you will still need to start in 2015 because that's what Tapani's patch requires.

That's all I know and I know it works. I don't use Saturn's patch.

I started in 2016 rather than 15, so I assume that's why they don't appear. What do I need to change for them to work so?

Edit: I changed a couple of players DOBs by adding 14 to them, and they now appear in-game. So all of the players in the .cfg file have 14 years extra on them.

So unless you're using Saturn's patch the game will crash after 1st season anyway, on the 16th June.
Best to revert to 2015 by just using the Tapani patch again and changing the start year :ok:

Or stick Saturn's exe mod on and let me know if that fixes it?

No, I used find and replace. It's a bit tricky though.

Can't remember what patch I used but I started in 2016 and am currently in 2031, so no need to worry

I would use this, but you need to tell me what patch you're on first so my game doesn't end after 1 season.

If you have not used the patch, your game will indeed end after season 1 if you started in 2016.
If you install the patch you have to start a new game. Not the save file.

It will be saturns 2.21.1+ patch. That's the only one that allows 2016 start with no crashes

This is absolutely fantastic but when I add the pictures my game takes absolutely ages to start up and seems to crash at the black screen start up page.

Any tips on how to stop this problem please?

Many thanks.

It's not a problem, you are loading nearly 6GB's of images into the games cache on your pc.

Maybe installing 1024GB of RAM will sort the 'problem' :)

Is there no way that I could slow it down by deleting pictures I'm not bothered about. Eg; if I deleted all the stadium pics, player/manager pics would this slow it down and allow my game to run without any crashes?

I only really want the club logos and competition logos.

Dermotron
02-02-17, 07:35 PM
Yep, delete them would work fine

Or just move them into another folder if you think you might want them at a later date

This has probably been answered somewhere already - but is it in any way possible to use this on 1280X800? And if not, which picture pack would people using the higher resolution recommend? The one I am using doesn't have many player pictures or badges, and has film pics randomly inserted :p

for all the people who asked me about this pack,

it's a pack made for 2015/16 season so it won't work with a newer database, that means that you will still have almost everything working (badges, stadiums, flags, unless some names have been changed in the db) but no human picture will work because all their dates of birth are now different.

if you want to have an up to date picture pack you can do it yourself setting the dates of birth in the pic.cfg file so that they match with those in the game (i.e. rooney is born on 24/10/85 in real life, so if you use a game where he's born on 24/10/80, this must be the date in pic.cfg file in order to let his picture appear in game).

unfortunately i have no more time and resources to update the pack or to answer your questions.

i am deeply sad for that, hope you can understand :(
