If (when) you use chrome you should be able to resume any interruptions in your download. Otherwise use the torrent and apply the updates afterwords.

torrent can be found HERE


Yeah I tried repeatedly to restart the download and after a few seconds the error ended again. I couldn't find the torrent link so thank you for that. I'll try it now.

I made a printout of my game folders, only the stadiums of Brazilian clubs are not right.

Well it looks right, but I personally have the backgrounds folder in the graphics folder and not the picture folder. You most have another folder somewhere within your graphics folder that has all the wrong Brazilian stadiums in it. You can also check the Brazilian stadiums inside your "stadium_inside" folder by searching by stadium id. But if you have not changed any of them they should be right. Otherwise you have to download the full pack again and extract all the pictures from "stadiums_inside" to your own folder and overwrite all the existing pictures.

Changes have been made to this project with the new update (2021.02). The "team_background" (15+ gb) are removed (and I would advice on deleting the folder from your pack). A new config is in place so that stadiums_backgrounds also work as team backgrounds ๐Ÿ™‚

Good morning Qvordrup, I have a problem when downloading the new update and that is that the links to start the download do not appear, I do not know if it is my problem or the files. Any solution?
Thank you very much for the great work you do.

This is exactly the same problem that happens to me, it does not give me the link. Now I ask, the only way to download this file is to get a premium account? This is the first time that happens to me, I have never been asked to make a premium account to download a file from this pack

Thanks a lot

No no... it is a mistake that there are no free mirrors. This will be fixed over the next couple of days ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello,
I would like to know if there are any problems if I only exclude the folder relating to people's backgrounds.

There's no free mirror for the latest update, as far as I can see. Will there be one maybe?

I've downloaded several packs and all worked fine, however the Backgrounds (Stadiums/City etc) aren't working.

It's an existing game save on FM2021, I've attached where I have saved the files.

I've reloaded skin but nothing changes.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

I've subsequently sorted, I hadn't copied over config xml file, brilliant addition to the game, looks amazing!


Thanks

Hi, I have just started using this megapack so playing catch up.

I have downloaded the 2021.02, 2021.01 and 2021.00 files so far but I am not sure if I need to also download the multiple 2020 updates as well? I have attached a image of the download history from the site. Assume if what I have done is correct then like with the cut out mega pack I just download the update files when released and copy over into the megapack?

Thanks

It's the exact same concept as the cut-out megapack, so the bit in italics is indeed correct ๐Ÿ‘

Sorry if this question has been asked before but.. downloading this file, is there a way of the stadium pictures only showing as just that, stadium pictures on the club screen, fixture screen etc rather than being a background?

hi what is the best way to add your owe stadium pictures to the game? 

First you need to find the id of the stadium. Turn on โ€œshow screen IDs in title barโ€ under skin in  preferences. 

 

Then contribute to the pack here : https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/submissions/17

 

There is a guide here :  https://sortitoutsi.net/content/57340/tutorials-and-guidelines-for-contributors

 

you can use this free app to edit your pictures to the right size : https://www.gimp.org/

First of all... If you download the full pack here : https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/17/download

Then the new Brentford and Wimbledon stadiums are part of the pack:

Brentford Community Stadium: https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/browse/17/1196355/timeline

Plough Lane: https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/browse/17/1179086/timeline

You can search for anything in the database here using id or name:

https://i.imgur.com/qnOHhon.png

Then to the actual question. If you want any picture to show in game they need a line in a config for the game to pick up the image.

So if the stadium, player or whatever already has a picture in the megapack then you can replace the current image and then it will show. If you want to add a picture that is not in the pack then you have to create a config.
I use this little app to make configs : https://sortitoutsi.net/content/848/fm-graphics-configurator-for-pc

But it is much easier if you just request the changes you want made in the submission system then other people can also enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚

I would ask for:

The Blow - FC Isle of Man (stadium and background picture)

Sportpark Lindenberg - Weimar - (background picture) and about it the higher image i can found is this one but is rejected when I try to insert it as a background image because it exceeds the required limits

i have downloaded the backgrounds megapack and correct saved it at the graphics carpet, and then reloaded the preferences at the game, but i still have problems. For example it doesn't appear the stadium image, it's happears a red shadow instead, and in the players profil, it doesn't appear the player´s background it appears a city's photo in the back. How can i fix it?
