Updating kits for Universal Converter Patch

Contents

MinikitsEdit

Minikits must be saved as .png images, with size 256x256 pixels, in %GameFolder%/data/minikits folder.

Only 2 minikits are used per club - home (%UniqueID%_h.png) and away (%UniqueID%_a.png).

 

KitsEdit

In the UCP Patch, we use %GameFolder%/data/kits folder for user kits. These kits must be saved as .tga images with size 512x1024 pixels. As in original game, we can add home (%UniqueID%_h.tga), away (%UniqueID%_a.tga) and third (%UniqueID%_t.tga) user kit. Additionally, in the UCP Patch, we can add goalkeeper kit (%UniqueID%_g.tga).

 

KitnumbersEdit

Kitnumbers are textures for jersey (shirt) numbers. They are saved in %GameFolder%/data/kitnumbers/jersey folder. These textures are saved as .tga images with size 1024x128 pixels.

 

 

Kitnumbers may be added not only per clubs, but also per competitions. Creating kitnumbers for specific club and specific league is also possible.

There are 5 different ways to name a kitnumber texture (the game looking up for a texture in the specified order):

Order Name Description Remark Example
1 %CompetitionID%_%UniqueID%_%KitType%.tga For specific kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000_002D000E_h.tga
2 %CompetitionID%_%UniqueID%.tga For any kit type of specific club in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000_002D000E.tga
3 %CompetitionID%_%ColorID% For all clubs with specific number color in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000_1.tga
4 %UniqueID%_%KitType%.tga For specific kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in any competition If club ID available 002D000E_h.tga
5 %UniqueID%.tga For any kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in any competition If club ID available 002D000E.tga
6 %CompetitionID%_%ColorID% For all clubs with specific number color in specific competition If competition ID available 2D010000_1.tga

These naming rules make configuration of kitnumbers very flexible. For example, if the club uses same kitnumbers texture for more than one kit (for example, away and gk), this texture can be named as %UniqueID%.tga , while the other (home) must be named as %UniqueID%_h.tga . So we will have only 2 textures instead of 3 (for each home, away and gk kit).

For competitions, the kitnumbers texture contain competition ID in the name. This name can be combined with club ID/kit type (will be used in the competition for specific club) or with number color ID (will be used for clubs with specific number color). Number color IDs are configured in the game database and can be overriden in kit config file.

Captain's armbandEdit

Textures for captain's armband are saved in %GameFolder%/data/kitarmband folder as .tga images, with size 256x64 pixels.

 

Same as kitnumbers, captain's armbands may be added not only per clubs, but also per competitions. And also, creating armbands for specific club and specific league is possible.

Naming rules for captain's armband textures are following:

Order Name Description Remark Example
1 %CompetitionID%_%UniqueID%_%KitType%.tga For specific kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000_002D000E_h,tga
2 %CompetitionID%_%UniqueID%.tga For any kit type of specific club in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000_002D000E.tga
3 %CompetitionID% For all clubs in specific competition If club ID and competition ID available 2D010000.tga
4 %UniqueID%_%KitType%.tga For specific kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in any competition If club ID available 002D000E_h.tga
5 %UniqueID%.tga For any kit type (home/away/gk/third) of specific club in any competition If club ID available 002D000E.tga
6 %CompetitionID% For all clubs in specific competition If competition ID available 2D010000.tga

Competition overlayEdit

Method 1 - 512x1024 overlayEdit

Competition overlay may be added for generic kits and kits with canusecompbadges flag enabled. An overlay is a .tga image with size 512x1024 pixels. It is stored in %GameFolder%/data/kitoverlay folder. The name for an image is a competition ID (hexadecimal, short version is possible (example: F909).

   

Method 2 - sleeve badgesEdit

Sleeve badges may be added for generic kits and kits with canusecompbadges flag enabled. Such badges are 64x64 .tga textures. They are stored in %GameFolder%/data/kitcompbadges folder.

Edit

Sponsor logo may be added for generic kits and kits with canusesponsorlogo flag enabled. There are 2 versions of sponsor logo possible: first, with higher priority, is placed in %GameFolder%/sponsors/200x100 folder (.tga image with respective size); second, with lower priority, is placed in %GameFolder%/sponsors/96x96 folder (.tga image with respective size).

Kit colors for TV PopUpsEdit

Kit colors (for TV PopUps) are .png images which are stored in %GameFolder%/ucp_popups/colors/vert (vertical orientation, 8x64) and %GameFolder%/ucp_popups/colors/hor (horizontal orientation, 64x8) folders. Currently in the UCP patch, horizontal colors are used only for Spanish leagues (so only Spanish clubs need it). Naming rules are same as for regular kits, goalkeeper kit colors are not needed.

It's possible to add new color textures, with different size or different orientation. Color textures are assigned to competitions in a special config file (%GameFolder%/plugins/ucp/popup_colors.dat).
