About backgrounds

Types of backgrounds

Original version of the game comes with default background image size of 800*600 pixels. Also, game gives you option to add your own backgrounds using piced tool (piced.exe).File is located after installation inside the Championship Manager 01/02 main folder. With this tool you can easily add your self-made backgrounds.

Before starting piced.exe tool you have to choose what pictures you would like to use in the game, resize them to 800*600 resolution, convert them to .bmp extension.For this task we reccomend ACDSee program or similar one.

With a development of a famous Tapani patch by it's creator Tapani, new option was added, to play a game with a new interface in a windowed mode but 1280*800 resolution instead default 800*600. For this interface piced tool was also developed (piced_1280.exe).Process of adding this backgrounds is the same as adding 800*600 backgrounds. More,Tapani patcher offers you even moe resolution for your windowed mode like 1366*768 or 1400*900.
