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
