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 😉

sortitoutsi_megapack_4.00 - uploaded before the release of FM12
sortitoutsi_megapack_5.00 - uploaded before the release of FM13
sortitoutsi_cutout_megapack_6.00 - uploaded before the release of FM14
sortitoutsi_cutout_megapack_7.00 - uploaded before the release of FM15

sortitoutsi_cutout_megapack_12.00 - uploaded before the release of FM20
sortitoutsi_cutout_megapack_13.00 - uploaded before the release of FM21
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).

Hi, I've downloaded the file via torrent and I've run into a big problem. It takes an excessively long time to unpack the files (7+ hours) on my SSD. Is there a preferred way apart from WinRar to decompress the files?

 

Extracting the filewill take a while, but it shouldn't take that long. 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.

Well downloaded the torrent file and the same happened ,  some images  a lot actually are just badly saved maybe with wrong transparency settings cause yesterday done that with this player above Vlachodimos and the picture after I saved it showed correctly , but there are far to many like this in lots of teams …

 

Maybe it is some settings I have but for some to show up and others don't it looks more like badly saved images than a problem on my side , it was to different downloads of this pack and in both the same result with the same players, it is fixable but its just a to big work for me to do it alone ….

 

Downloaded this pack other times before and its the first time it has any issue , it is weird and I can not figure out why but today after trying the Torrent file of this same pack i saw it was not either file corruption or any other issue than the pack having face images that are simply badly saved …

 

Thanks for reading cause no one really tried to help anyway …lol

I'm not entirely sure what the issue could be. It's working perfectly fine for FM22, and it might well be related with how older versions of FM display some images. Perhaps try downloading an older torrent version for FM18 and see if that works for you 👍

He is very young, only 16 but also one of the biggest talents in the game so not sure why or if this has anything to do with it.

Hi all, I'm having a problem getting the facepacks to work with FM2022; they just aren't displaying in the game. It's odd because the logos and kits are working fine and I obviously went through the same process. 

 

The faces are in graphics/sortitoutsi then faces and iconfaces. Config files are definitely in both. I've tried deleting and reextracting the megapack, but nothing is displaying in game. I'm assuming as other graphics are working I must have done the preferences correctly?

 

It's through the Xbox Game Pass PC version, don't know if that makes any difference?

Can I have a screenshot of the folder they're in, showing clearly the full path? Secondly can I have a screenshot of the faces folder, in which the amount of images therein is clearly shown? You should have 330k+ in there.

Believe it or not but I sometimes open my FM16 to play a savegame that I'm rather fond of😀. I've always updated my faces without any problems (but it has been over a year since I last took a look at my FM16 save). But I've now run in to the same problem you (@jcwolf ) described. I've figured out what the problem is. The color mode is “wrong” on the pictures that shows up strange in older versions of the game. The color mode is set to “indexed color” and not “RBG color”. For some reason almost all of the icon faces are that way. I really think it is a shame that this beautiful pack is no longer compatible with older versions of fm (before fm21 i think). Perhaps there is an easy fix, perhaps it is something we just will have to accept 🤷‍♂️ .

A shit, that will most likely be due to the compression we did for the 2022.01 release.

 

Do you happen to have a copy anything pre 2022 you can test or simply download one of the smaller “changes” files and test individual images from there from 1-13.


We have kept all originals so can fix this if need be although my understanding of how RGB and indexed colour etc work is limited.

So the compression we used is thus: “converts 32-bit RGBA PNGs to 8-bit (or smaller) RGBA-palette PNGs”

 

It also includes something called “Floyd-Steinberg dithering” which I can disable if need be.

 

I have no idea what that means 😀

@Footygamer I've done some investigation and here is what I've found:

There is a lot of indexed color pictures in the faces folder, but far from all. In the icon faces folder it is almost all that are indexed color. Despite searching online I've haven't found a way to search and identify indexed color picture within the folders (only way I can search is by manually looking at each picture in game). So I'm not going to spend hours and hours finding every indexed color picture😕.

I've come across another problem: some of the iconfaces that are indexed color have also lost there transparency.

some examples:  2002040995,  2001040995, 2000147332 (I've no idea of how big this problem is, as I have only done a small sample)

 

I've found a way to fix the conversion from indexed color to RGB in my own game: it is very easy to do in photoshop and I've set up a small “action” file so that photoshop converts all files in the folder(s) (batch function in photoshop) also them that are already RBG because I've not found a way to identify the indexed color files. This will properly take my computer a day or so to convert all 342.158 (x2) files, but all I have to do is use the batch function with the action and then just wait 😀.

 

That only leaves the problem with the iconfaces that have lost transparency. I have no solution to that.

Please don't spend the time doing this via photoshop, we need to find a way to fix this on the server so it's part of the automated processes each month 🙂

 

But thankyou for your efforts!

 

The icons may be a different issue, they use a tool for the size conversion than I used for the compression, so lets consider them different for now.

 

It's strange that some are indexes and some are rgb, it may be related to the initial upload rather than the compression which was my first guess.

 

Are you able to provide the IDs of the few that you did identify as indexed (not icons, full faces)

@Footygamer Faces (full) with indexed color:

Christiano Biraghi (43029905)

Alfred Duncan (43084308)

Jerry St. Juste (37049949)

Gaël Kakuta (34001371)

Kevin Lasagna (43092927)

 

I'm sure @jcwolf also could help, if you need to identify more pictures with indexed color 😀
