You should be able to use the graphics on this site without any issues at all in FM22. The real name fix will be released shortly, while you'll need the full game to be released to use editor data files.

@mons will we have to wait for the full game to be released in order to use a new skin? Or if one is made up before Nov 9th will it work? cheers!

Bit hard for a skin to be created without being able to have a look behind the curtain to see how the new skins are built and what changes there are, so I doubt it. But you never know what skinners can manage to do 🙂

Can't get my facepack or logos to work.  Did they change something.  I have them in a graphics folder.

Hi Greg, you shouldn't be having many issues with FM2022. The facepacks, logos, kits, and balls work fine for me. I haven't tried adboards or backgrounds yet but that's because we need a skin that allows backgrounds to show and a backlight adjustment. The setup is the same as FM21. Mine are in the "graphics/pictures folder. Try that setup.

Yeah, thanks bartdude, no go.  What's driving me mad is that I have the exact same setup as FM21, where it all works.

 

For some reason, photos, logos and skins don't show up.  So it's got to be something with FM22, a setting or something that

I'm missing.  I've cleared cache, unticked load images etc so I'm at a loss.  Ready to jump off a bridge.

Is your Sports Interactive folder being recognised ? Check in preferences that your graphics folder location is correct.

I know it is a silly question but do you have the screen resolution set up properly?

On the division overview there are some short names. But if I got to the stage screen,  they are all full names.
