No need to start a new game.

and I would gather all my kits in one folder called "kits"

No worries see the attached screenshots, hopefully you can help.

Yeah you're right about the kits, I'll tidy that up.

If you're using Chrome browser, see next to the download an arrow facing up, click there and "Resume". Do it every time the download stops.

Hopefully it's something minor and easily fixable. I was starting to think was I doing something wrong haha

Right now I can't help you any further. I need to install fm21 and apply the pack to see if it works. Right now my steam code is lost between the old and new site.

Have anyone got this working?

Just a thought, should the config file be in the sortitoutsi folder or an edit folder?

Deinstalled old FMC backgrounds and downloaded the whole package. The old package was working.

Replaced everything in the backgrounds folder and deleted the old pictures of the stadiums in the map pictures.
Not working.

This is a work in progress... but the download is working (both full download and torrent). If any problem it is the config. But as I just wrote before... please have patience.... Hopefully bye tomorrow I will have my fm21 installed and have the possibility to check everything.


Must be something caused by the config. I downloaded the latest megapack and prioritised it in loading order by adding a "1" at the beginning of the folder name in \graphics\backgrounds. FM 21 would not show the backgrounds or even stadium pictures. As soon as I moved the newest pack way down in loading order by replacing the "1" with "z", the older background pictures I had from my FM 19 and FM 20 worked just fine.

I've already downloaded the full FM 21 background pack (sortitoutsi_backgrounds_megapack_2021.00.zip) but this new config.xml is the only thing I'm missing now. 🙂

EDIT: What I mean is I cannot download the new updated config.xml you linked to your post above. It doesn't show any free mirrors, only the ad for the Premium Membership.

No everything looks to be in the right place. We suspect the config to wrong.
try using this config (overwrite the current one)

And please let me know if it has fixed your problem
