SS Kits

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present a full set of SS style default kits for Football Manager 2022 (will also work in FM20 & FM21 and in Touch versions). This release features tweaked shirt designs and a better fitting effect/overlay layer.

UPDATE 1 DECEMBER 2021

The pack has been updated to the current SS kit shape (fronts, backs and goalkeeper kits), and an alternate effect (aka texture) layer is now included which matches the texture used in the SS kit packs. See below for the alternate texture on the “new” shape.

The overlay based on the SI overlay (as used in the original screenshots) is the active one when you unzip the pack. To use the alternate overlay, navigate to the default folder (C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Football Manager 2022\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default) and change the name of the file called effect.png to SIeffect.png (or delete it altogether) and then change the name of the file called SSeffect.png to effect.png

 

This includes shirt backs and goalkeeper shirts which you will see on the tactics screen and at the bottom of your screen in a match

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (WINDOWS)

 

1. Place the file Fidney's SS Style Default Kits v22.zip into your Football Manager USER DATA DIRECTORY.

a). Default location of your user data directory is C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022

b). If you sync your Documents to OneDrive it will be C:\Users\YOURNAME\OneDrive\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022.

c). If you have gone into Preferences and changed the location of your user data directory then it will be wherever that is.

 

2.  Extract contents of the zip file to your Football Manager 2022 directory.

a). If you use WinRAR or 7Zip simply right click and select Extract Here

b). If you use Windows built-in Winzip right click and select Extract All and then in the dialogue box that pops up delete \Fidney's SS Style Default Kits v22 from the end of the file path you are extracting to.

c). If/when you see the message saying would you like to replace an existing file select Yes to All. In Windows this will only overwrite files with the same name in the destination and all other files will remain untouched.

 

For other operating systems you may need to extract the .zip to another location and manually copy across into your user data folder to avoid deleting other files. The default location of your user data directory may be different if you use a Mac or Linux PC.

 

The pack will unzip all the files into the following file path:

The extracted file path is case sensitive and must not contain any additional levels, although you may have other folders/directories sharing the same file path. For example, this file path is perfectly acceptable:

As you can see, the directories in the pack (highlighted) are in exactly the same place in this file path as they are in the “clean” file path shown higher up.

CARE: If other levels are introduced, or the names of any of the folders are changed in any way then the SI "effect/texture" will appear over the kits instead of the SS style texture.

 

3. If the SS style default kits don't show in your game then go into Preferences, turn off skin caching and reload your skin.

 

THESE SS STYLE DEFAULT KITS WERE MADE FOR FM22 BUT SHOULD ALSO WORK IN FM20 & FM21

Great job mate!

 

We should do something as community about missing badges on generic kits. Its shame that this problem is still in game.

 

I created a topic on SI forum, comment there that the SI could see the problem is serious.

Just a quick question. I've used your default kits for god knows how long now, but I always have a shadow behind the kit. It is more noticeable around the collar and sleeves. Is there something I've done wrong?

I have tweaked the overlay layer a little this year so it is a better fit as the previous one had a very thin brighter outline that was mostly noticeable on a dark background, but I wouldn't call that a shadow and I don't think that's what you mean here.

 

My initial suspicion based on your description is that the file path to the default kit folder is not 100% exactly as it should be, and if not, then although the SS style default kits will work they will have the SI overlay layer instead of the one in my pack and that overlay is (obviously!) a slightly different shape and size. It is almost transparent and where it overlaps the SS style shape it would be visible as a shadow.

 

Of course that's only a suspicion based on your described symptoms - can you post a screenshot of what you see please?

Don't ask me how, but I was able to sort it. The thing that did confuse me at one point though, was that after moving the kit folders around, clearing cache and reloading the skin, I actually lost the sidebar. It is sorted now though, thanks for your reply.

Hello, I think I've got the same problem you had, may I ask how you were able to fix it?

I think it was the path. I had to move folders around so it looked like the instructions above.

Try using the FM21 version of this file, which, as the thread title says, is for FM22 😉

THESE SS STYLE DEFAULT KITS WERE MADE FOR FM22 BUT SHOULD ALSO WORK IN FM20 & FM21.

 

I also tried the ones for the 2021 version and they have the same problem.

Some skins like “flut dark skin” comes with standard kits (fc'12). If you what to change the standard kits playing with “flut dark skin” then you have to replace the kits that comes with the skin. In the case of “flut dark skin” there is a description in the OP (opening post) on how to do that. I dont know if that help 👍
