Angry Impossible to add backgrounds

I've read probably every thread on these fora to include backgrounds in my games but absolutely nothing seems to work.

I've read that the naming convention is similar to the logo files, but that you should put the width in pixels and the year that it should start being used.

So, in my case, I've been trying to add a background while playing as EC VSV Adler. I've tried all of the following file names:

ec_vsv_adler.png
ec_vsv_adler_1920.png
ec_vsv_adler_1920_2015.png

I also tried replacing '1920' with '2560' (along with having the image be the right size, as I play the game at 2560x1600) with zero luck.

I've also tried placing all of these files in /arena_background/ and /screen_backgrounds/ in both my save folder as well as the OpeningDay one. Nothing has worked. I've never had this problem with team and competition logos.

What is the secret?

Can you post the image you're trying to use? It seems to fail inconsistently, we'd like to see if there's something specific that's causing the problem.

Is that the exact image you're trying? It's a jpg, needs to be a .png (i.e. actually saved in png format, not just renaming the extension.) I think some programs will autoconvert when they see a jpg with a png extension, but FHM can't.

That's because your forum software renames the file and makes it a JPEG. Where can I upload it in a place where the file isn't changed?

I've been trying to figure out your issue because that's not something I've ever experienced. I think the issue is it's too big of an image so it's force converting it into something smaller.

Try Imgur.

Looks like imgur converted and resized it, too, but I switched it back to the correct size and format and tried it in the game (and a test version of 6 as well) and it's not working. We'll have a look and try to see what's going wrong.
