It depends on what resolution your screen is. Flut skin is made to work with 1920x1080 and 100% zoom and 4k and the second options is if you use 2560x1440 screen. and in your preferences you should have sidebar icons only :

 

My computer is a Dell inspiron 3505. The resolution is 1366x768px Does this mean that flutskin won't work?

Hi (sorry for google translate). After installation, the backgrounds are displayed as in the screenshot (only the upper part is visible), is it possible to fix this? Or is it solved only by replacing the skin?

Hi guys, 

I have just one annoying problem. One of the team has inappropriate stadium picture, It's STOMIL OLSZTYN- originally form polish 1 League. It should has his own from Olsztyn, but it shows as Lechia stadium (from Gdansk), and when it comes to the match, we play it on Lechia Gdansk Stadium, not the Stomil Olsztyn one. Any guess how to fix it?

I can't really help you because this is how it looks with the default database:

You must either have added a custom data editor file, or the club has just temporary moved stadium because it is renovating or moving to a new stadium in your game.

Oh yeah, maybe they changed the stadion to a different one, I didn't think about it, anyway thanks for the quick reply 🙂

Hi,

 

This pack takes 37gb on my SSD while the download size is 22.68gb. Is it heavily compressed or did something go wrong in my game? Since SI can't “innovate” and let us use the storage space we want, this causes problems on a small SSD designed for OS + a few things. 

 

Thanks 🙂

Somethings gone wrong. It should “only” be 22 gb also after unpacking it.

yes. The teambackgrounds is no longer part of the pack and is not updated anymore. So if you have used the torrent to download the full pack you will have to delete the folder teambackgrounds. The stadiumsbackgrounds serves as team backgrounds now. For various reasons we only update the torrent once a year. So the torrent will be fixed in the fall when next version of FM is released  👍

Hey mate, I just installed the background megapack and I have the same issue. Which skin do you recommend? I'm using the default one.

Well I personally use “flut dark skin”. But recommending a skin is not easy as it comes down to personal preferences if you like the skin, and it also depends on what resolution your screen is. So my recommendations is to try out different skins and see if you find one you like 👍

Just bought fm21 and downloaded this megapack. Havent played newer versions since fm14. I have alot of stadium backgrounds on my fm14 i would like to bring with me into fm21. As i like to play my local team from lower divisions in Norway, and i have made stadium backgrounds for almost every team from Norway. After downloading this megapack i can see these stadium background pictures are 1920x1080. My stadium background pictures from fm14 are 400x240. My understanding was that i could use my backgrounds from fm14, also in fm21. Is this the case, or will i have to change the pixels for those backgrounds to use with the ones from this megapack? Maybe this megapack are especially for the FLUTE skin, and if i use some other skin on fm21 the background pictures usually are 400x240?

First of all you can use your stadiums pictures for fm 21 no matter what skin you use. Only thing is that the default skin don't really show all of the content of this pack.

 

In this pack we have two types of stadium pictures:

inside stadium (800x480) 

stadiums background (1920x1080)

They have different configs and show different places:

 

The size of this is just a choice, but the bigger the better it will look, your 400x240 pictures will look blurred compared to the 800x480 pictures on bigger screens. So the sizes are a compromise between size of the pack and quality of the pictures.

 

But if you already have a folder with a working config you can very well use it together with this pack. Not merging them together, but having them in separates folders.

Ok, then i will try it and see how the pictures will be. Thank you very much 🙂

Btw. Will the stadium backgrounds from this pack work on other skins, as FM Enhanced, Rensie`s, TCS, Priisek or OPZ Elite?

Sounds great. Cant wait to start playing and see all the changes from fm14. Download skins now, see if my stadium backgrounds from fm14 will look ok. If not make them all over again. Life will be so much better with the newest fm and all this nice graphics. You guys making all this graphics are just awesome 🙂

There are a numbers of ways to get that:

 

Number one is to turn on id's showing in your game preferences:

Number two is to use our browsing system to find the stadium:

 

https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/browse/17

 

Number three is to search by the name (stamford bridge) here: https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/submissions/17

There are at least two ways to fix that 👍

 

First if you use one of the skins available here (I use flut skin) : https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/10/football-manager-skins

you can make the backgrounds darker by pressing this button, and press the procent :

And you can make a config by you self using this little app: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/848/fm-graphics-configurator-for-pc

just drag your teams background folder on to the app and having the dot on team backgrounds. You will properly have to move your folder outside the backgrounds folder to your graphics folder.
