Facepack Area Rules & Help Thread.

    Facepack Area Rules & Help Thread.

    This is to make sure everyone follows and also knows the new rules for the Graphics areas.

    The new rules are simple, and will help to keep the Graphics(Logos, Faces, Kits, Skins & other graphics) sections running nice and smooth.

    1 - SEARCH before you make a thread. What is the point in wasting time making a thread to have it closed? Simple.

    2 - DO NOT make threads asking for graphics. There are request threads for this. Any threads opened will be closed immediately.

    3 - When making a thread or posting, GIVE ALL INFORMATION. It helps to sort any problems, or makes it easier to understand.

    4 - In each section(Kits, Logos, Faces, Skins), there is a thread for the graphics. If you have any queries, post them in there, rather than making threads for them.

    5 - There is to be NO KIT COMPS without asking for permission from StuW or KevyMatts. The main reason is that the 2010 froums were literally cluttered with piss poor comps that never got finished.

    6 - There is only one Signature Competition, and that is to be run by Ross-Galloway. Anyone that makes another without prior permissions will have thread closed.

    That is pretty much it, I think.


    FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN A WARNING OR INFRACTION.


    Any questions, post them below

    so ive downloaded a facepack and all that fine, extracted files etc saved in graphics.... how do i actually put them to use please?

  9. Go into preferences, Tick reload skin on confirm and untick Skin Cache.

  10. I need help with creating facepacks aswell

  11. Can you import facepacks in mid game or do you have to do it befor you start your season?

  12. How do I make facepacks?

  13. I downloaded a facepack ages ago, and put it all into place etc, I've played FM doe a good few years and I always add skins, graphics, kits etc. but this facepack isn't working, I'm positive it's the right location and the skin options are right too, skin cache and reload etc.

    C:\Users\Joe\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\faces

    I can't remember which facepack it is, I don't have the original file.

    Is there a config.xml file in the folder where all the face images are? You may have had to download that separately, depending on the facepack.

  15. The config file is there, but I think I've figured it out, i think it's part of a super pack, and I've only got part 1, but it should still work though, if each part has it's own config?

    If its part of the cut-out megapack then no you need all the parts for it too work.
    But if its a different one then yeah if its split into parts it should work fine with each part having a config

  17. Hi all!

    How to install Facepack for MAC-version? Could someone make a simple guide? I´m new MAC user and totally lost with that doomsday-machine... Thanks!

  18. i use cut out facepack(3.0 i 3.1),some of the player pictures are missing after some time in the game,how to fix this???'

  19. Sorry if this has been answered somewhere, but I can't find it. What type of files does FM recognise for player faces? Is it just .jpg, because I have created a layered image using gimp and it says the jpeg plug-in can't handle transparency so the image has to be flattened? It consequently doesn't show in game...

  20. .png only mate

    I've saved them as .jpg before and they have worked, or do you mean gimp can only save layered transparency images as a .png?

  22. I mean FM can only read images save as .png mate

    The image on here, along with about 250 others I have done are using images saved as .jpg, so FM can definitely read them. Perhaps it's the size of my new images? Do you know the size limits?

  24. Are you sure mate ? all graphics are made .png, i've never saw any other file type working

    Does anyone know any reason why I can't get this image on a player in-game? It's a .png file, size 140 x 180. If anyone can get it in the game on any player, I'd appreciate it, just so that I know it can be done!

  28. The image doesn't seem to be showing. Below is a link to the .png image, I'd really appreciate it if someone with a bit more knowledge than I could find a way to get it in the game on someone.

    Some tips etc to think about -

    Max Dimensions - 180x180
    File Format - .png.......don't save as .PNG, as the game will not read them
    Also, try and name the images as the Unique ID, ie 1234567 is player xo, so save the file as 1234567.png, it makes configs easier.
    use a program called FM Graphics Configurator, works perfectly when the files are named as the unique ID
