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

Yes, I solved it. I had to copy the folders as they were! Last question and no longer disturbing, I promise: In that box how can I show the external photo of the stadium and not the internal one?

  1. Delete the config file in the external and internal backgrounds folder (or delete the internal folder completely if you don't want to use those)
  2. Create a new config file yourself for the external folder as explained in this thread: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/60493/how-to-use-a-specific-part-of-the-megapack

So like this: 

 

Set the little dot to background and stadium and the drag the “stadium_backgrounds” folder on to the app. Then open the config with notepad and press ctrl+h and replace “background” with “stadium” and press replace all.

Config lines need to look like this:  <record from="xxxx" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/xxxx/stadium"/>

Hello. I m struggling with all of this fm23 packs being separatelly. Can t make them work at all. I tried also with the graphic configurator and still doesn t work. Any ideeas??

When i delete the config from each folder and then try to put the folder in app,it doesn t work. I need to put only the folder with the images to work in the app and so then I can edit them. But also in game doesnt have any effects

You shouldn't have to edit any configs yourself, did you have the old version installed and then updated thrm with these? It's the easiest to delete the pack completely and then install these 5 new versions

What skin are you using? Some skins only support certain types of backgrounds

So you have the same problem as the other person, can you try a different skin to see if that changes anything?

I haven't tried the FM23 skins yet, it seems the flut from FM22 still works in 23 so maybe use that one to check https://sortitoutsi.net/content/58952/fm-2022-flut-skin-dark-beta-version

Yes there are some problems with that lately. If you go to your actual downloads page in your browser, you should have some sort of option to ‘keep dangerous file anyways'. There's nothing wrong with the file of course 👍

Are you using a skin that actually supports backgrounds? The default one does not, there is a list of FM23 skins here: https://sortitoutsi.net/football-manager-2023-skins

 

If that's not the problem, please post screenshots of what your backgrounds folder looks like

You can download all of them if you want. The place where they actually display in-game depends on what skin you use

@Footygamer When downloading the complete stadium pack I get a version called 2023.01 instead of 2023.00, might be a bit confusing as the first update is called 2023.01 as well
