Hi all,
As the title says since a couple of days ago, when all was fine, I have lost all my game graphics logos/faces etc etc, these were stored in a different location to the default and were set via the preferences Location setting and also the launch options in steam.

 

Now when I go to the Preferences → Location the location folder is blank, see below.  If I change the folder and confirm, nothing changes, I still don't get all the graphics back, and if I quit the game and restart this location is blank again.  Has anybody experienced this?  If so how did you fix it? I hope I can get the graphics working quickly as it really loses some of the games appeal to me.

Cheers

There is another way to do the same thing, and that is outlined in this post. Though the link is for FM19 and older, it does still work, though it has been somewhat superseded by the ease in which you can achieve the same process using the method which you were previously utilizing.

Hi Thank you for the suggestion, this actually helped me solve the problem.  It seemed that I was also doing what was in this post as well as the preferences → location and it was causing a conflict.  So I removed the launch options that I'd mistakenly put in and voila all working.  Happy days :-)

Thanks again
