Have downloaded the file for previous games but had to clear out my pc and trying to download the full pack again but can't find the option to do it via torrents, just downloading it via chrome and it will take ages, any recommendations?

The ability for premium members to download the files using torrents was removed since the prevailing thought was that they wouldn't need it if they downloaded directly through the site. Over the past weeks, it appears some premium users feel they should have it back and so we're seeing if we can add it back again in the near future.

The best way to do it is to download the torrent file, which contains the 13.0 base pack, then download the 13.01, 13.02 and 13.03 update packs and install them all chronologically 👍

Hi, and thank you for your answering. Do you have a guide about what you mean with "install"? Thanks

There's a video here showing you the steps on how to do so, which is more easy-to-understand than anything I could write. It's for Mac, but it's the same process for PCs.

Is there any where that I can download the whole iconfaces pack latest version 13.03? I accidentally deleted my iconfaces folder. (blame the FM resource archiver tool)

Você pode postar capturas de tela da sua pasta megapack, por favor? Este é um fórum em inglês, então responda em inglês 👍


O ponto é que eu faço o Downlaod do pacote completo e então apenas alguns jogadores aparecem para mim. Eu faço tudo conforme as instruções.

Hi Guys. I'm not to sure if i'm being really thick but i need some help.

I downloaded the megapack (12) and then started to download the additional updates but am struggling as i'm not sure where i put the updated packs? Do they sit in the graphics folder as a different name or do they all go into the same folder?

The only reason i ask is that some of the files names, the pictures are two different people but obviously it wants to over write it.

I've downloaded upto 13.4 but need to know where to stick the pictures.

Can someone stick a guide for the updates please as i can't seem to locate one, just how to do the mega packs.


Thanks

You should merge the folders in the update pack with the folder in your megapack folder. You should have one faces folder and once iconfaces folder, and neither should contain a sub-folder. All the images (plus the config file) should be included in the respective folder.

If you are getting a prompt to confirm if you want to overwrite, then you are probably installing them correctly. You should accept all overwrite prompts 👍

There may be the very rare instance where a wrong image is uploaded, but I check all the improvements manually and I am not aware of any current instances in the megapack. In some cases, cut-outs are updated after a number of years so it might be the case that a cut-out of a player when he's 24 looks very different than what he looked like at age 17, for example.

If you come up across an image you believe is definitely wrong, please let us know so that it can be corrected in future update packs 👍

Thanks for the reply.

Yes some have aged and you can obviously tell they are the same person but some are a totally different skin colour or ethnicity.

As long as i accept all overwrite prompts then i should be golden, right? Also, do all the config files go in to?

I'm now merging the 13, 13.01, 13.2, 13.3 & 13.04 updates into one folder and moving them over into the main folder.

Fingers crossed all goes well

I would appreciate if you could point out which 'are a totally different skin colour or ethnicity'. There can't be more than a handful correctly cuts previously added incorrectly.

Other than that, you should be fine using the process you've described 👍

The config file in each update pack contains all the images within the whole pack, and not just for the images in the individual update pack.

If you install it correctly, you should be prompted to overwrite all files. It's really all very simple: press yes/ok, that's all you need to do. This will mean that the config file at the end of the process should be the most recent one.

Hi.

Not sure if this is a stupid question, also apologies if it's already been asked many times before...

Downloaded the packs for years with no issues, this time though I think I've hit a snag. Maybe it's just me being dumb and faces are that size this year, but swear they should look bigger than this?

(If I have done it wrong, then only thing I can think of is that when extracting I had duplicate files it wanted me to overwrite, and I just hit 'yes to all' absentmindedly, was that the problem?)

Hitting yes to all, absent-mindedly or not, is what you should have done, so that's not the issue 😉

You seem to be using the default skin, which is set by default to display the skins in a smaller size than this megapack allows. If you want to enjoy the megapack cuts in their full intended glory, try downloading one of the skins from our forum, most of which use the space on that screen differently and in a way to maximise the size of the face within them.

Reboot your computer, so you are sure the computer is not running an over load of programs. Then just unzip the file... sometimes with such a big file the computer gets the calculation of extraction time wrong and it speeds up after a while.

Be prepared for it to take a fair while. It may take around an hour or slightly less with all conditions being ideal.

If you can't find the time to leave your PC alone to extract the files, perhaps it might be worth letting it extract overnight, making sure there aren't any power settings which send the system to sleep if inactive after a period of time.

I don't know why I can't figure this out, but I'm trying to update my 13.00 facepack. When I did it before, once I entered the game almost all of the faces were gone. So, I deleted my update folders and I'm back to where I started. I'm pretty sure it's because I extracted the files to the wrong folder, so here's my question. Starting with 13.01, do I extract the whole update folder to?

a) graphics
b) sortitoutsi_cutout_megapack_13.00
c) sortitoutsi (the folder within the b folder)

or do I go into faces and iconfaces individually and try to extract these into the corresponding existing folders, replacing all?

Attached are screenshots of my proposed file paths.

Let me know if you need more info. Thanks in advance.

To avoid messing things up, extract each update pack to a separate, temporary folder, and then move the contents of the faces and iconfaces folder respectively into the megapack folder, overwriting when prompted. Repeat for each update pack.

I am struggling to download packs on my MacBook. Everyone's tutorials online look very different to what I have in front of me, can someone help with some advise to do it on my MacBook? In addition, I use Steam to play FM21 on my laptop.

What exactly is the issue? The screenshot you uploaded shows a random collection of images you've downloaded and created a config for, unless I'm mistaken. That doesn't have anything to do with the megapack not downloading or installing properly.

We'll need a bit more info on what exactly you're trying to do.

The first time you load FM up after installing the pack should see the loading screen time take a fair bit longer, but we're only talking a few minutes more. Can I have a screenshot of the place you've installed this file?
