Cut Out Player Faces Megapack

1. How do I install the cut-out megapack if I’m using Steam on Windows?

Watch this YouTube tutorial video, which should you guide you on the steps you need to follow to install it. Although it is for an older version of FM, the steps are still the same.  You need to use Winrar (or a similar program) to extract the downloaded file.

 

This is what the MP folder should look like for the respective version of FM you're using:


Anything beyond the blue line is up to you and how you want to structure your folders. 

 

The preferences should look like in the below screenshot:

 

To get them to look like this, navigate to your preferences on the welcome screen or by using the drop-down menu near the top right of the menu within your save game.

 

Choose the advanced tab (the blue square within the screenshot above) and select all from the drop-down menu on the right (the red square within the screenshot above).

 

Scroll down to the interface section near the middle of the list, where you are to make sure that:
• the “Use caching to decrease page loading times” box is unticked
• the “Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences” box is ticked

 

After clicking confirm, it may take a few seconds or minutes for all the graphics to be loaded and you should now see all the graphics you have downloaded appear in your save game.

 

Once your skin is reloaded, you can re-tick the "Use Caching to Decrease Page Loading Time" button so that the splash screen at the start takes a lot less longer to load. However, the above process needs to be undertaken every time you add graphics to your game to ensure that the game "reads" them.

 


2. How do I install the cut-out megapack if I’m using a Mac OS?

From FM20 onwards, there's been a substantial change to how Mac FM documents are stored. Previously the files would automatically go in the Documents folder here:

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 202x

 

Now the files will instead appear in the following location:

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 202x

 

By default this folder is hidden, so to access you need to do as follows:

Open Finder
Click ‘Go’ from the menubar
Press and hold down the ‘Option’ (Alt) key
This will bring up the ‘Library’, click to enter then go to ‘Application Support’ -> ‘Sports Interactive’ -> ‘Football Manager 202x -> graphics’ (create the last folder if necessary

 

Anything beyond this path line is up to you and how you want to structure your folders.

 

The preferences should look like in the below screenshot:

 

To get them to look like this, navigate to your preferences on the welcome screen or by using the drop-down menu near the top right of the menu within your save game.

 

Choose the advanced tab (the blue square within the screenshot above) and select all from the drop-down menu on the right (the red square within the screenshot above).

However, the above process needs to be undertaken every time you add graphics to your game to ensure that the game "reads" them.

 


3. I don’t want to have the megapack in the default user data folder – can I place it elsewhere and how would I do so?

You need to change your user data location. Simple steps on how to do so can be found here.

The above step does not apply if you’re playing on Gamepass, in which case the user data location has to be the default one (i.e. Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 202x)

It is recommended that the user data location is not placed within the Steam installation folder as this may cause issues.

 


4. How do I install the cut-out megapack if I’m using Gamepass?

If you're using Gamepass, then you have to use the default user data folder - point 4 above does not and can not apply to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you've never downloaded the pack before, you should just download the larger "complete pack".

If you're not a premium member, it is recommended that you download the base megapack via torrent by going to our cut-out megapack download page. After which, you should then download all the update packs released to date and apply them chronologically.

If you're a premium member, just download the most recent complete pack.

If you already have a version of our Cut-Out Faces Megapack installed, then click "Download Latest Changes" and you'll be presented with a list of all the updates we've released since you've last downloaded a file. Simply download any you might have missed, starting with the oldest.

The torrent file includes the base megapack uploaded just before that year’s FM version is released. Any and all subsequent update packs are to be downloaded separately.
For those who have never used torrents, in the vast majority of cases, it's just a question of downloading the client program (a small file, less than 1MB) and then downloading the megapack torrent file (a tiny file, around 20k) and then letting the program do the job.

Torrent files need a torrent client to be downloaded. I personally use µTorrent but other common clients are BitTorrent, Vuze and Deluge. For those using torrents for the first time, here is a general walk-through on how to download torrents and a specific guide for µTorrent.

Be aware that it will take a substantial amount of time to download the file due to its sheer size and that other people depend on you hosting the file to get it so please leave your torrent client on after you have fully downloaded it. The etiquette is generally accepted to be to upload as much as you download, although this might not always be possible. The older the torrent file, the less likely it is that there will still be users seeding it.
You need to copy and overwrite the faces and the new config file from the update pack into the faces folder and follow the same procedure for the iconfaces folder.

If done correctly, you should be asked if you want to overwrite files – accept. You should have one folder for faces and another folder for iconfaces, and no sub-folder whatsoever in them.

These steps are to be repeated for every update pack downloaded, and they are to be installed chronologically.
Since the files are hosted outside our pages, there isn't much we can do about this unfortunately. You could try downloading the pack via torrent and get it this way.
Extracting the file will take a while, but it shouldn't take the hours and hours that the program extracting will sometimes say it will. To speed it up, it is recommended that you have as few programs running as possible so that the system can dedicate as many resources to the extraction as it possibly can.

Secondly, for files as large as this, the calculation of the extraction time will be wildly incorrect at the start. After a while, it'll show a more realistic timeframe, which shouldn't be more than an hour or two if you have a good setup and few programs running at the same time.
The 22.0 torrent file was compressed in a way which has this effect on some images. It is suggested that you download an older torrent file which should not have this issue. Download links for older torrent versions is being made available below. It is recommended that you download the torrent file for the version after the one you’re playing since this will include all the update packs released for that iteration 😉

The older the torrent version you’ll download, the less likely it’ll be there’ll be any seeds for it, naturally.
You might have a poor internet connection or your browser might have some extensions which interrupt this download. Having loads of downloads ongoing and/or streaming may also de-prioritise this download.

Try using Google Chrome in incognito mode (or the equivalent mode for other browsers) and you should be able to resume the download from the point it was interrupted, if that happens.
This download has two folders: one is the faces folder which contains the cut-outs which should be displayed on this screen. There is also a file titled config.xml which tells the game which images to assign to which person. The other folder is the iconfaces folder which contains the smaller images displayed near a person's name on the menu which comes up when you right-click on them, and also includes a different config file for this folder.

The likelihood is that you've put the iconfaces in the faces folder, or used the wrong config file for each folder. As a result, the smaller images (in 25x18) are being upscaled to be displayed in the person's profile, hence the blurring. Re-install the update pack again, making sure you put the contents of each folder in the right place.
The most recent update pack will include the most recent config file, so you can choose to download it and use it from there.

Alternatively, you can download fmXML and generate a config yourself. There's a video on YouTube on how to use it but it's really easy and the instructions are quite straight-forward.
Down the years, after an update pack was released, it was noted that some images included therein where of the wrong person, with a wrong extension or duplicated. Due to the way the download system is structured, these cannot be removed from the download, so there may well be a couple of hundred images’ worth of difference, depending on the version you download.
It's impossible to cater for these kind of requests since different people will want different combination of leagues, nations and divisions, plus people move around and get transferred or sacked or retire etc. and the only way to do so is to update and download them manually. That's why we have all the images in a megapack so that everything is captured therein.
These persons do not appear in the default database for licensing reasons. This means that they only appear in your save-game because they were added via a custom file, generally the real name fix file. However, this means that their UID (which is what is used to map a person's image to the right individual) is different, and so the game cannot assign the image to them from your existing facepack.

To get them to show, you should individually download the cut-out faces that you want from here (or use the UID to find them in your existing facepack if you don't use the cut-out megapack), put them in a separate folder to your existing facepack and create a config file just for them using the method outlined in here (which works for all facepack styles, not just the cut-out megapack).

Since you're a premium member, if you just download the most recent complete pack, you'll have all the images in the megapack. All you'd need to do from that point on is to download the individual update packs released periodically.

There's a number of reasons this could be happening. Have a look at this to see if helps at all: https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000839.htm

Try downloading the file using Google Chrome, which allows interrupted download to be resumed from the point they were stopped.

Hi,

I've been downloading the Cut-Out Faces Megapack files for the past weeks (yes, you read it right: "weeks". my connection is that good). Today, as i was about to continue my journey i noticed the files are not there anymore. Is there a specific reason for this? Will they be back up soon?


EDIT: This is regarding the FM20 Update Pack - 12.18

Thanks in advance

What do you mean? They look fine to me here

The default tab is now FM21 since the 13.0 update pack for it was released earlier today, so you may have to manually change the tab to FM20.

I've been trying to manually change the tab to FM20, however, when i choose the latest update pack it takes me to a single direct download link. My question here is, considering i was still due to download the remaining files from the "original Megapack", where can i find those files? Do i not need to download them at all?

This is sounding confusing but i really don't know how to phrase it any other way, lemme show my folder where i've been keeping all the files i'm been talking about here.

It would help if you provide screenshots of how the site is looking like for you, because it's not clear what you mean.

That said, it looks like you've got all the files needed for the 12.0 base pack. All you need to do now is to extract them all and install them in numerical order, starting from the multiple 12.0 base files (which should all ectract automatically if you start with part 1) and continuing to the various update packs (from 12.01 until 12.18), accepting all overwrite prompts. You just need to download the 13.0 update pack now to be fully up-to-date.

I've been downloading all Megapacks via torrents this week, currently the 13.0 file (thank ya'll), but I'm having issues with the 6.0 and 8.0 pack.
The 6.0 pack is at 0,9% (one start), the 8.0 pack is still at 0%.

Is there a possibility that more people (re-)share these torrents? Or anyone knows what's the availability of them?

Many thanks in advance and hope ya'll will be having fun with the new FM in the next couple of weeks!

Ow I think I made a bummer!?
Is it sufficient to download the 13.0 version, thus having ALL images?
Or do you need to download all versions, where 8.0 is an update of 7.0, 9.0 is an update of 8.0,... thus not having all images but ONLY updates per new version?

The "changes" file is 500mb the complete file is 18gb. If you click "Download Latest Changes" that should give you the right file.

Are you possibly getting confused by the new design? If you're struggling to find the right place to download please try and give detailed feedback and i'll try and improve it 🙂
