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.

I have added the backgrounds megapack into the game graphics but only the top third of the images show on the screen, it blends out into black for the bottom 2/3 of the screen. any advise on how to fix this?

No... that is how it looks right now with the default skin. Wait for skins to be released.

Aye, the file I downloaded was 38.55gb, so I think that's the complete file?

Just to confirm - after downloading via torrent and finding nothing showing up, I replaced the config with the new one and now all seems to be working! 🙂

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

Had a similar issue after downloading the torrent and that seemed to fix it as well, cheers

Hello,
a quick question, the last mega pack sortitoutsi_backgrounds_megapack_2021.00 is not in free mirror. I have no link to download it.
Can you put a link on the site ?
Thanks

Hi Guys

any idea why the graphics won't load? I have them saved in a different drive to what FM expects but I changed the launch options on Steam to the make it find the correct drive. But still nothing

Thanks

Screenshots of the location you've installed your graphics, what files you're talking about and a screenshot of your Steam launch options may help us assess where the issue may be.

Here are the launch options

Can I actually see a screenshot of the launch options in Steam?

As for your second screenshot, I'm not sure the panels folder ought to be there but possibly in the location of the first folder, but I don't believe that should stop the graphics from displaying. Also, for your second screenshot, can I see a screenshot with the folder path it's in as shown in the first screenshot?

Thanks!

The new config displays about 1/3 of the background image (instead of nothing at all).

This should be what you asked for. Couldn't fit the whole launch options into 1 shot

It does appear to work now. Got to admit this is the first time that I have downloaded the background folder, so I can see that 1/3 of the screen has the players pic. So not sure exactly if that's how it should appear. I guess someone who has used the backgrounds megapack before will be better placed to provide feedback.

If you have a look at my attachments, you'll see how it looks. The Vlasic background looks good, the Magnusson one you see his arms but no face

The below is what mine looks like

--user_data_location="E:\FM user data"
Yours seems to be missing the two dashes at the start and possibly the quotation marks at the end.



@McG84, that is how the default skin displays images at the moment and doesn't have anything to do with this specific pack. I'm sure that in the coming days/weeks skins will be released to allow us to enjoy the full benefit of this pack 🙂

Excellent Mons thanks for coming back to me. This is the first time I've downloaded the backgrounds megapack I'm sure once the new skins are out it will look brilliant :-)

That's awesome, it's working now. The backgrounds still don't seem to be working but eveything else is

That has got nothing to do with the config. That is how backgrounds look with the base skin of the game. Wait for skins to be released, I usually use "flut" dark skin 🙂

Can someone assist me please, I can't get the background pack to work. only pack not working faces, logos, kits etc all work. I've cleared cache, unticked the used cache to reduce loading times, ticked reload skins when confirming preferences. File is in graphic folder liked all the others. Just dont know what I'm doing wrong.

I have now got the correct config, is it correct that the backgrouds only show like the top 1/3 of the picture expected it to be the full page or am i doing something incorrect?

That's how the FM21 skin is intended to work, nothing to do with this file. Once more time passes, one would expect skins to be released which show the whole beauty of this pack 🙂
