    Question One Background for all

    Hi fellow managers,

    I was wondering if there is a way to make the background photo the same for all windows whether it is a match or stadium or competition or squad or anything really. Just 1 plain background file to show and never change.

    Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?

    I'm using the default by the way, with the April update.
    Thank you.

    I'm guessing your just delete all pics and remove them from the notepad file leaving the one you want. Have you tried anything at this stage?

    I didn't want to mess things up, so I wanted to ask first.

    What pics to delete? There is a "Pictures folder" with RGN files. Should I delete all of it? Then how do I input the background photo I want?
    Also what "notepad file"?

    Sorry for so many questions, but I never attempted any changes to the vanilla game before.

    Three pics for the rich clubs under the sky,
    Seven for the wingers hugging the touchline,
    Nine for lone strikers doomed to score,
    One for the strict manager on his dark dugout
    One background to rule them all. One background to find them
    One background to bring them all and in the pictures folder bind them.
    In the data folder where all the files lie.

    I created a new bmp file for the backgroung I want with the resolution mentioned in the piced.exe and saved it in pictures folder. But when I start the game I see the old picture. I looked in the pictures folder but the new file I saved is not present.


    Also there is no DEFAULT_pic.rgn but there are default01.rgn and default02.rgn only. I tried moving these 2 files from the pictures folder but the game still uses the default pic and not my background!


    What am I doing wrong?

    Ok so the data folder had the file you mentioned before "default_pic.rgn" in it. So all I had to do was rename my background file to that and that's it.

    Finding the rgn files produced by piced.exe was a pain since they didn't appear in the "pictures" folder of the game with the rest of the default pics. Finally I found it in windows7 under "C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ Program Files\Championship Manager 01-02\Pictures". Moved the file back to the "data" folder and renamed it to "default_pic.rgn" and after I start the game I set "Background changes" to "Off".

    Now I have the one dark background I wanted.

    Thank you for your help.

    If you have a Virtual Store folder using CM files you need to run CM0102.exe as Administrator

    I have the exe run in compatibility mode and "as administrator" and my user account is also an administrator.


    Anyway, it doesn't seem to disable anything really.
