Loving this pack, any chance of updating the London Stadium for West Ham to show the updates to the stadium making it more identifiable as West Ham rather than the Olympic Stadium??


I'll change it tomorrow mate.

Don;t know what went wrong but renamed image as 735 as you suggested and pasted in to the background folder, but both the new and the old image were there? and the old image still displayed even after reloading skin, deleted the old image but now nothing displays?

Really sorry, its probably user error my end but still struggling. The file is saved in the backgrounds folder, in JPG format, other stadiums are displaying when I click on their club stadium names, I have tried to DL with 3 different browsers, Chrome said failed - missing file IE only gave PNG or bitmap options so used firefox. Have cleared cache, reloaded skin but still no change. Am using the wannachup skin

Is there a problem with the download right now? I have tried but it gets to about 75% or 2.3 gb and then just stops and gives a failed msg,, Network Error.

I have just downloaded all the updates for the facepacks and had no problems with any of them

Just download fine for me, what browser are you using and is the definitely enough space on you HD for the file?

Just tried on Edge Browser and stopped downloading almost instantly. Went back to Chrome and now its stopping right at the beginning too. Just keep getting a Network error msg. Only other thing I can think of is that my Firewall or AVG is blocking it,,,,but then why would it be ok for all the other graphics and then 75% of this one then suddenly start to block????


Update: Problem is at my end ,, as I tried to re-download one of the facepack updates I know was working and now it wont work either. I am totally stumped tho as to what has suddenly stopped me accessing them. I just took up my subscription last night,, downloaded about 10 updates no problem and the license fix for German national team,,, and now all of a sudden I cant access anything,, £10 well spent then lol.

Have no idea what to try next,,, guess am just going to have to forget about it for now then

Ok with a little digging I have found the cause and solution so thought I'd let everyone know as can see others having this (if not already) issue. The problem was AVG. I trued to download the file again and when again it froze I tried just out of interest switching my AVG Security off for a sec,, I then hit resume on the download and bingo, it started to download again at full speed.

Ok so now I knew what was causing it I looked into AVG settings a little more. When you initially turned off AVG there is two main options, Behaviour Shield and File Shield (I didn't turn off from the system tray icon instead opening up the program via the desktop icon) .

To begin with I turned both off and that is when everything started working again,,, now with it downloading I tried to re-apply the Behaviour Shield ,,, and monitored for a few secs to see if the download would continue or stop. When it kept downloading, this pointed towards the problem being the File Shield. I then went into File shield settings and looked at the exclusions tab. In there you can set up file paths to not be scanned. So in there I set up file path exclusions to where I save any of my Sortitoutsi FM stuff,, I also set one up for the default graphics folder ( Documents - Sports Interactive - FM 2018 - Graphics // ) and one for the skins folder,,, in case I ever try to install a skin in future.

Everything carried on downloading and finished as normal. I have no idea why to begin with there was no problem,, or if something it detected while attempting the backgrounds file did it and it decided to block everything from the same origin afterwards.

Anyway perhaps the Mods might want to put something up on a sticky or something as there must be lots of people who use AVG and might encounter the same problem and end up just giving up.

Nice content here, however, I am having issues with getting the backgrounds to show up. I have the folder inside my graphics file. I have cleared the cache, reloaded the skin, restarted the game, and even changed the skin. No matter what I do, all I see is the default background. The other folders in my graphics folder are the DF11 facepack, kits, 3d kits, and a logo pack.

What skin are you using as can be an issue with some not showing backgrounds. If you're using the default skins try this https://sites.google.com/site/michaeltmurrayuk/Skins/fm18-match-day-background-mod

I get this 524 error (see link below) when I click 'download' (Windows + Chrome). I have tried disabling my AVG and tried multiple times today, but that didn't work either.

How can I fix this?

I am using the default version of Wannachup. I'll try moving that out of the FM folders to see if the backgrounds will work.

EDIT: It did not work. There shouldn't be anything else in my graphics file that messes with the background. I'll include a picture of my files. The folder titled "Premier League" is just EPL 3d kits.

UPDATE: The match day background mod didn't solve it either. I'll laugh if this ends up being something stupidly small that I overlooked.

This is the error I get when I try to download the package. Is anybody else experiencing the same problem?

I've really got no idea as everything you have done is correct, have you also cleared cache and reloaded skin in preferences?

I think the problem is currently with all files on the site and will hopefully be fixed soon.

Do you know where I can report this issue other than in this forum? Because it's been two days now and I don't experience the issue with any other file here at Sortitoutsi. I can't wait to use this background package

Here's the best place as I'll see it, I've let @Rob know so shouldn't be long before its working again.

As @ama has said the file is now available again, apologies for the wait but sadly not everything can be fixed instantly.
