Make sure to read and follow carefully the installation instructions, including the correct location to install them and how to change the preferences for the cut-outs to be displayed.

When you're asking for help, it's always good if you provide as much information as possible, including screenshots 😉

I cant seem to download the full facepack.... after a while of downloading it stops and I get an 'couldn't download - Network issue' message. Can anyone shed light on why this is happening? Currently running windows 10 but had this same issue when trying to download the full pack before on my Mac book... Any help greatly appreciated!!!!

Try downloading it with Google Chrome in incognito mode. It has a resume download function which may come in useful in cases like this.

Did a search and couldn't find anything that worked for me.

I am on a Mac (M1 MBP). All face packs I have tried have worked except the cutout face pack, which is the one I want because it's smaller than the rest.

I have a config file and even used FMXML to create a different config file. Not a single face loads.

Any other ideas?

Thank you.

Cheers Mons, Ill give that a go... I did try downloading the full pack using Chrome on my Mac and kept getting the same problem (albeit this was in 2019). All other downloads have always worked fine and I had the Face pack on my Mac for some 6 years and would just add the updates. Is there any known reasons why the Megapack seems to crash mid download? Just wondering incase your suggestion doesn't work... Cheers for the quick response and help.... always appreciated.

Can I have a screenshot of the location you're installing the cutout megapack in? And also one of the properties of that folder, showing the total amount of files in the pack.

Are you sure you're downloading the full pack? It's 17GB+ and it's the biggest facepack for FM as far as I'm aware; could it be you're not downloading the full pack?

As it's such a large file, there's simply more of a possibility of the download connection being temporarily interrupted. That's why I recommend it's downloaded with as little background applications running, to avoid potential interruptions caused by other files being downloaded by the user.

Hi,

I downloaded the torrent file. Am I missing something?

As for the location, I know it's correct for the updated Mac settings (ie: selecting library, whilst pressing option, etc). The other graphics work: kits, other faces, logos, skins, etc.

What do you mean by "one of the properties of that folder, showing the total amount of files in the pack"?

Thanks for the help 😊

The reason I ask for a screenshot is not only to verify it's in the right location but to check the contents.

As for the properties, it's the Mac equivalent of the below screen:

Hey guys so after a month playing my earlier save on the beta database I had installed the cut out mega file pre 13.01 and since then added the 13.01 update and all was working perfectly. the older faces plus 13.01 faces were showing up.

I have today tried to start with a new save and when creating the new game I got a strange error where only 13.01 faces were showing up and not all the old faces.. I know this because 13.01 had many youth player faces of the club I manage added to it and those faces are showing but the earlier mega pack or older pack I had stopped showing up I came on here only to notice there was a 13.02 update I swiftly downloaded it and have installed them too and I believe both the 13.01 and 13.02 faces are showing now however the original faces are not showing. Can anyone tell me what I may have done wrong here?

Sorry and Thanks in advance..

It's not entirely clear what your situation is. Can we have screenshots of your megapack folder please?

Basically the faces I downloaded initially before 13.01 and 13.02 are not showing up in my game somehow.. I have attached the screenshots I think you needed?

p.s sorry for posting my message in the wrong thread earlier and thanks for moving it over to the right one..

Hi, so you were right. When I downloaded the torrent, it was fine. I had 17GB but when I downloaded the admins, it overrwrote what I already had.

How exactly do you install the add-on? I just open the folder and dragged the images over the original cutout faces??

In the 3rd screenshot, you have a folder named faces. Remove it and you'll probably be fine.

Put the contents of the faces folder in your download into the faces folder containing all the cut-outs. Same for the iconfaces. Click OK when asked if you want to overwrite.

There isn't a thread, but there's a whole section for it 😉

Use the search function to check if a game-ready image hasn't been recently produced for a person and, if not, upload an image you find as a source - the bigger, the better 👍

Hey @mons when you get the chance, could you check to see if you have a player face for Harvey Vale in game? I haven't downloaded the added faces only megapack so he doesn't have one but I added him individually and done a confiq using fmxml and he still doesn't have one, not sure why. Works for everyone else.

Afternoon Mons, Sorry wanted to reply earlier but works manic!! Just a quick update.... I managed to download the full pack via Incognito Google Chrome just like you suggested. Not sure if it makes a difference but my Laptop was screensaving if idle for 4mins and this was coinciding with the downloads stopping....? Maybe this is common knowledge and i'm just thick... LOL. Im not really computer literate. Anyway thought it was worth mentioning incase it helps anyone else. Once again thanks for your support and all you do on here... you have been doing this for years now mate... how many exactly?? Anyway its all much appreciated... the game would be nowhere near as good without this site and all the work you guys do. 👍

I just got the new MacBook Pro and since this is my first Mac I need a little help. I been looking for a face pack but when I download them the turn into a document and not a file. I was wondering if that would happen with the cutout pack because I don't want to spend money on something I can't use.

Most large files are usually saved as compressed to try and save on downloading time. You'll generally need a file like the Unarchiver or Winrar to open them. This pack definitely works with Macs; the location where they should be installed in is found in the first post of this thread.

Hi to everyone.. I have a little bit a problem with facepak. I'm used Zeeland Regen facepak and by accident instead of only regens, i'm applied that regen faces to some of the players that sortitouts already have (for example 2000013783-Vanja Vlahovic etc). Luckily, thats not a huge amount of the players (maybe 4-5 those who had faces, the other ones doesn't). I tried to fix this with the FMXL, but unsuccessfully. Is there a possibility to solve this?

I'm not exactly sure how that file works so it's possibly better to ask them than us since any changes you need to make or undo will be related to how that file works rather than this one...

I've also downloaded the latest update - and installed into the same folder as before - but I lost all of the old faces.

Let's have some screenshots of (a) your graphics folder and (b) your faces folder.
