Stadium backgrounds 800 x 600

Post by RichMariner »

This is a truly awesome community, and I've loved rediscovering the game I played so much when I was younger.

I've got CM01/02 running, but I can't seem to find a stadium background pack that unzips after I've downloaded it. Just about every available pack in the download section won't open. They all have error messages.

Are other people having the same issue?

There are quite a few YouTubers out there streaming their saves and I've noticed none of them have stadium backgrounds (but plenty of other modifications). Is it just widely accepted that these packs don't work?

Snap!
Tried the 2022/23 and Serie B but both refuse to be unzipped? Hope there is a solution as i don't want to play with the old pictures with the latest DB.

Has anyone had any issues with stadium background images not working due to the stadium name having special characters in the name? I.e Marseille (Orange Velodrome) where the e has a macron above it.

My Pics CFG file has the stadium names listed correctly but the game is just not picking them up. Very frustrating.

Everything was working fine until i performed the most recent data update a few days ago.

Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Open the pics.cfg in Notepad and re-save it, making sure the encoding is set to ANSI. I believe the Notepad default is UTF-8, which won't work.

Is there something wrong with the link I posted in the fifth message in this thread?
