    New and Updated Stadium Backgrounds Collection (800*600)

    I have created a new Stadium Backgrounds collection which you can download here.

    If you wish to see the pics.cfg to see what is included, follow this link.

    Back up your existing Pictures folder if necessary, then simply extract the contents of this archive into your Championship Manager 01-02/Pictures folder.

    This colection is an attempt to ensure stadium backgrounds are included for as many teams as possible within CM0102. While it was not practical to attempt to collect images from every team (and not possible in some cases), the vast majority of clubs that you can take over at the start of the game have been included. This is the case both for the official 3.9.68 data, and also for the most recent data update (March 20202). The following leagues have not been covered:

    Argentine Second Division
    Belgian Third Division
    Brazilian Third Division
    Croatian Second Division
    Danish Second Division
    Finnish First Division
    Italian Serie C
    Polish Second Division
    Portuguese Second Division B
    Spanish Second Division B
    Swedish Second Division
    Turkish Second Division B

    In addition, particularly in the 3.9.68 data, there are many stadiums that share a name (Olimpico, Comumnal, Central, Spartak, Ciudad Deportiva, etc). In this case you will find that the correct image does not always show. You may wish to edit your database with the official CM0102 editor to rectify this issue.

    If you find any errors then please outline these on the champman0102 forums, and fixes can be implemented.

    Hi Great Pictures, bit of a novice to this, but I have installed new pack and every time I click on team or its plays a match then I get current stadium photo which is great but when I click on a player their picture that was once themselves is just now a floodlighted training pic, have I done something wrong ? or is there a new player pack updated recently??

    I can't get this to work with the new update and saturn 9/ Nick's patcher. I've tried changing it to 800 x 600. It converts them all, but game won't load up.

    The only screens i have are the 9 I put up on the linked webpage. Any specific request?
    As for time, no idea. I think I started the project in early March by sifting out the unsuitable images in the older packs, so around 5-6 weeks as and when I could be bothered.

    You have overwritten your original pics.cfg file which had the player image details in it. I would suggest you copy these lines from the backup of your pics folder that I suggested is made in the opening post.

    There is no need to convert the images in this pack. They are already 800*600.

    You don't convert anything. You use WinRar to extract the files into the required folder.

    Have you still got the bmp files of the pics?

    Even when I haven't converted them it still won't let me load a game. When i delete all the new pictures (keeping only the original game ones) will the game run. Any ideas Alan?

    No idea, but I can assure you it is not a fault with the pictures, so there must be something else going on at your end.

    @freederry: I tried it with a Saturn v9 patched version of the game and it worked great. I'd say reinstall everything from scratch and try again.

    This is amazing! I just want to make a few small edits as suggested in the original post, how do I do it? I'm struggling to change the backgrounds for a few clubs so that they're always correct.

    Thanks!

    I think I need to edit, the CFG file right? Anyone know how I can do that? It won't let me save without permission from the author...

    Thanks! Another annoying question, I tried loading up two stadium backgrounds but both loaded up with a red tinge to the picture. Has anyone else experienced this?

    In your reply to Supagrova1973 you mention overwriting your original pics.cfg file. I have not overwritten it, I've moved the original folder to a USB as backup but skipped the overwrite so I may have 2 pics.cfg files in the folder now and I've kept the original pictures too in the folder with the new file. Will all of this still work smoothly or will the original pics and pics.cfg file being still in the folder cause issues?
