The 2023.00 pack is now available for download, taking the total amount of backgrounds to 69,296

 

You will notice the download page now looks a little bit different. We have split up the pack into 5 parts, eventually they will all get their own section on the site. This should make it easier for people that only want to use a specific part of the pack, and it also makes the file sizes more manageable.

 

Instead of the whole pack having 1 config file, each part now has their own, so you no longer have to spend time on creating them yourself.

We would like to hear your feedback on this change, as well as possible improvements.

 

Also a big thank you to everyone that has contributed in the past year, the quality of the pack has drastically been improved. Let's keep on going for FM23! 👏

For now it's the easiest if you delete the old pack completely and then install these 5 new ones (or whatever ones you want to use)👍

It's now also possible to download only the latest changes that were in for the 2023.00 update, instead of the whole pack. Again I'd recommend just deleting the old pack completely and then downloading these new complete versions. 

 

If you do want to make it work with only the ‘changes' files:

 

  1. Delete the file “sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack/config.xml”
  2. In each folder create an images folder and drag all the jpgs into that new images folder.
  3. Merge the update packs with your existing packs as normal.

So that's the ‘Team city - latest changes' and ‘People - latest changes'? 

 

I've just downloaded them and had no problem, can you try again?

If I understood configs correctly “team city” is for the club view, and “fans” is for team/squad view, right?

 

Maybe you'd want to rename cities to “club city” backgrounds, to avoid confusion. 🙂

Thank you for your continued hard work btw, making the games so much more enjoyable?

Hi! This doesn't seem to be working in FM23, is it just the config issue?

I don't think that the default skin supports background packs. Logos/faces are working okay, for me at least.

Thanks for the update! Also will they stay there? Because it is common to enter from the downloads to see what is included and what is not

I'll pick up bits and bobs of the Northern league, I'm on the forum every week checking scores anyways so I'll see a lot of news regarding players.  I've read the guidelines thread but the likelihood that I'll be able to put packs together like South Shields will be slim {Long Eaton have a dedicated photographer so I'll try them next}, I'll likely be upscaling or a few players will be in the picture, not a lot I can do about it I'm afraid, feel free to knock them back if you don't like the quality, it won't bother me much.  One thing I have noticed in the pack is that I'm sure the Kion Etete {Cardiff City} player is wrong, the other image is the correct one.

 

Regards 

 

Andy.

People doing research for the lower leagues is always appreciated! If you find the quality of the source is really bad though, please save yourself the time and skip those. In those cases we'd rather leave a person without an image until a better source appears.

 

You're right about the Etete one, I've uploaded an image of him in a Cardiff shirt now 👍

@BramNUFC congratulations for the painstaking work. I wanted to ask you how I can do to show the stadiums not as backgrounds, but only in the team panel box

Can you be a bit clearer? We have 2 types of stadium images, the aerial ones and insides. Which one should be on the team page?

Thanks for the reply. I'm talking about the club screen. How do I visualize the stadium in that box?

Can you post a screenshot of your backgrounds folder? You might not have installed it properly, did you download the stadium backgrounds pack from here? https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/style/17/sortitoutsi-backgrounds-megapack
