Whether you use a Mac or a PC, the file you download does not change. The only difference is where you put it once they're downloaded and extracted.

a) Download which of these files you'd like. I suggest the cutout faces megapack and the metallic logos megapack. Go the respective download section and download it
b) Each file will contain installation instructions, just follow them.

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

Now the files will instead appear in the following location:

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive

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 2020’

ive downloaded both of the packs that you have suggested and followed the instructions on both of them, to pretty much do what you put at the bottom and make a new folder called graphics and make sure the 2 boxes are ticked and clear cache and go back and reload and its not worked.

Let's have screenshots of the folders you've put the downloaded files in, and of the in-game preferences.

P.S. If you quote me when replying, I'll get a push notification and be able to answer you more quickly.

the file at the bottom of your thing that i found in finder

You need to extract both files using Winrar or a similar program.

Check this video for how to install the facepack and this video for how to install the logopack.

Winrar is extremely easy to use, you open it and click extract and the files then extract to wherever you tell them to That's the reason why I suggest using Winrar

Now, I've no idea what app you're using and what is the error message it's giving you. A bit more details and some screenshots would help me help you

Looks like operating Winrar on a Mac is not as straight-forward as it is on Windows. I only use a PC so wouldn't know. A quick Google suggests this article, see if it helps and use the unarchiver app to do the same job.

Hi Mons - I'm having a slightly different issue to the above.- with a mac tho. First time I've played FM20 - I've worked out the file changes (thanks to your help above) - but some of the graphics are loaded through, but some aren't?

Any ideas?

Seems to be a couple of teams per league/division that don't have the logos loading? And some of the kitpacks I've downloaded are working, but some others (Premier League) aren't? Even though they are all in the same folders?

Help me obi-wan, your my only hope....

First things first, are you sure your preferences are set up as per the screenshot in the opening post?

Secondly, in the case of the kits, it looks like the Premier League kit isn't installed correctly. Can I have a screenshot of that folder?

As for the logos, that appears to be the case as well. There is an empty space rather than the default unlicensed logo - that means that the config is in place pointing to a logo which is not there. Can I have a screenshot of that folder too?

Hi Mons - thanks for the reply.

See attached - I'm putting them in Library - Application Support - Sports Interactive - Football Manager 2020 - then created a "graphics" folder as per the attached?

Preferences are set correctly.

Been playing (and uploading the graphcs) = never had a problem before? But starting to feel a bit thick.

Can I have a screenshot including all the folders within just one screenshot? It's a bit confusing seeing them spread over 2 screenshots

Also try graphics in lowercase, instead of Graphics. FM is funny like that...

Mons - I've sorted it.

I was using "azipper" to unpack the files - had a sneaky feeling it was that.

I've gone back to winrar/winzip, and everything is now working fine.

Thank you for your time, much appreciated.
