FHL-Scoreboard-Tool (FIFA 11)



Download on http://editing.myfhl.de

Today Bernd from MyFHL-Editing (http://editing.myfhl.de) releases a tool for editing fifa scoreboards by easy.
Probably it is the tool with the most intuitive and user-friendly operability, which MyFHL-Editing ever released.
The tool includes many options, which effect you can see in a preview screen.
For the exact positioning of the scoreboard elements you can switch between the fifa screen and the tool. You do not need to restart fifa or a game, switching the screens will be enough.
The preview in the tool is not exactly the same view as in fifa, it is only for orientation and a better way to position elements.
The proportions of the scoreboard textures, textes and the preview screen correspond to the fifa view.
There are some checkboxes on the left side of the options for Hide/Show them to position the other elements much better.
The FHL-Scoreboard-Tool can only load compatible big-files. If you do not have a compatible file, just click on the button "New Big". This big file you can edit and open again and again.
You can find an other option called "Add to all X-/Y-Values" in the tool, which allows you to move all elements at once (right, down: positiv value; left, up: negativ values).



Example of a procedure:
1. Click New-Big or Open-Big
2. Hide elements, which disturbes you
3. Change size of the text-elements
4. position elements and hide/show the others
5. hide all elements, which have the correct position to keep track of the previewscreen
6. modify colors of the text-elements
7. import/export other textures
8. save the big-file, maximize FIFA and take a look at the scoreboard
9. Repeat everything from step 2, if the scoreboard is not perfect
10. release your big-file (feel free to make mention of using the FHL-Scoreboard-Tool)



Summary of features:
- Creating of complete new scoreboards
- Positioning of all textures and text-elements (with mouse-moving or exact values)
- Selection of colors of the text-elements
- Selection of size of the text-elements
- Selection of size of the screen preview and the preview elements
- Automatic selection of the screen resolution of fifa (+ manual changing)
- Import of dds-files
- Export of dds-files
- Import of all png-filetypes with the correct size
- Export of the textures as png-files
- Moving the complete scoreboard with one click
- Hide/Show of single elements to keep track of the previewscreen
- elements, which positions were changed, will be in the forground automatically
- auto update function (the tool searchs for updates by itself and installs automatically new versions



To create a scoreboard of a special league for FIFA, you have just to rename the big-file.
Here you can find a list with the filenames:
Default: overlay_2002.big
France: overlay_3002.big
Germany: overlay_4002.big
Italy: overlay_5002.big
Spain: overlay_6002.big



At least you can see a screenshot of the FHL-Scoreboard-Tool and a presentation video, which is built like a tutorial:

Thanks m8, great work, but I have some questions/problems:

1. The tool doesn't display my resolution right (1920x1080), for example I opened the
ZDF scoreboard by ANB with it but the channel logo is not at the screen anymore,
although ingame it's perfectly.



2. Could you adapt that the program can show the transparencies right? Actually now
we can't display timer and SB-texture at the same time, hard to adapt perfectly.

3. Could you maybe leave out the boarders and background colours of the team/timer
and goal locations? It will be easier to adapt them at the right place.

4. Any chance to maximize the window in future?

Hi, thanks for the reputation.
I think it's the best if I answer to each point:

1. Oh oh, that's a very big resolution, I didn't know that anyone plays with that. You will find the answer in point 4 I think. For the moment you can decrease the option "size (%)" on the left side at the start of the program. That should solve your problem for the moment.


2. I have to check it, will write more about it later, if I find a better solution.


3. Yes, I can do that. I thought it would be better with background, but I can change it in the next update of the tool.

4. Yes, I will do it in the next update, so you can see the hole resolution, but the background-screen will repeat.


Hope, I could help.

Hmm, the problem is not only with my resolution :( if I try to open the Bundesliga scoreboard
by ANB with the same resolution you used, I get totally messed up positions.

@Cesc Fabregas:
As I wrote in the description:

The preview is only for orientation, better you look also in fifa (task switching), then you can see, where the elements are placed and move them with the preview percentage. The offsets of the positions are not static positions, they are relativ, so there are some problems in the preview screen.


@mIHAI~2ocm~ : I don't know yet, if I have enough time, I will write you a pm.

Yes, I totally understand that, I just wondered why the ZDF scoreboard is
displayed right in the editor but most of the other scoreboards not. ;)

@Cesc Fabregas: I tried my answers from point 2 (transparent-option) and 3 (no background for texts), but in my optinion it looks not good and make the positioning worse, so it will be like before for the moment.
Point 1 and 4 (maximize the tool) will be aviable in the next update, so you can work with your big resolution ;)

Did you start the tool as administrator? Please make a screenshot after importing a file into the tool and upload the file you want to import. Then I take a look at the file, perhaps it has not the right properties.

I tried it with the following steps:
1. Open Big, select ANBs Bundesliga Scoreboard
2. Click on export PNG button of the sb-texture and export as 25.png
3. Click on New Big
4. Click on import PNG button of the sb-texture and select the 25.png

Now I could see the new texture. Have you done the same steps? If not, try them please.


@zicstark:
Don't understand everything, but you have to export the textures as PNG-Files from the template, edit them and import them again. Then it should work.




EDIT: Found the problem! It's something with 64-Bit systems. I'll try to fix it soon.
