Standard Kits

Our Football Manager Standard Kits Megapack matches the same design as the Default Kits in Football Manager but includes all the real Kit Designs that Football Manager doesn't come with by default.

Standard Kits

Step 1) Where to put Football Manager Graphics

Once you've downloaded a Football Manager Graphic Pack and extracted it you should be left with a single folder on your computer. You're going to need to move that folder into a special location where Football Manager can find it.

 

Apple: Where to put the FM Graphic Packs on Mac

You will need to copy the folder to this location:

 

/Users/<yourname>/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2022/graphics

 

You may find it difficult to find this exact location, to make it easier, use the following instructions:

 

a) Open Finder

b) Click “Go” from the menubar and select “Go to Folder” (alternatively press Shift+CMD+G)

c) Copy in the following: ~/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/

d) Open the “Football Manager 2022” folder

e) Open the “graphics” folder (or created it if it doesn't exist)

f) Move the downloaded files into the ”graphics" folder

 

Windows: Where to put the FM Graphic Packs on Windows

Simply move the folder to the following location:

 

Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2022/graphics

 

What if I don't have a graphics folder?

If you don't have a “graphics” folder simply create it 🙂

 

The downloaded files ends with .zip, .rar, .7z

If you have a file that ends in .zip, .rar or .7z then you'll need to extract the files before installing them. These files are called “archives” and are a way to compress a folder into a single file for downloading but you'll need to open them and get the folder that's in them before installing. DO NOT put these files in your graphics folder, it won't work.

 

Extract the files first and then put the extracted files into your graphics folder. If you're not sure how to extract them, look at these guides for windows or for mac.

 

Step 2) How to refresh graphics in Football Manager

Unfortunately even though you have the folder in the right place Football Manager won't automatically pick up the new files. You're going to have to go in and tell Football Manager to reload your graphics.

 

Simply follow these instructions:

 

a) Open Football Manager

b) Click Preferences on the start screen (or if you're already in a game FM Logo > Preferences)

c) Click the “Advanced” tab

d) On the right hand side select “interface”

e) Scroll down the Skin Heading

f) Uncheck “Use caching to decrease page loading times”

g) Tick “Reload skin when confirming changes to preferences”

h) Click “Reload Skin”

And now your graphics should be appearing.

 

You should go back into the preferences and follow the same steps but this time tick “Use caching to decrease page loading times”, this will help with the long term performance of the game, but needed to be unticked to install these graphics.

Frequently Asked Questions

The megapack does not include any 3D kits because these are made by multiple authors, to provide them the credit they deserve you need to download these separately and install them into your graphics folder. Furthermore, I don't want to spread their content, while these 2D kits are new creations. This means that this pack is 2D only and will stay 2D only, even though I have all files 1:1 for 3D.
Yes! With a tool as the FM Kit Creator the world is at your feet when we talk about kit creation for FM. Make sure to post the 3D files in the official 3D Thread, they will get picked up for this Megapack.
Please report the issues below, @Jamaicaman90 is happy to assist with minor updates to the packs.
We will continue to add new leagues and clubs to the megapack, but there is no official timeline for any of these additions. Please add your requests to the 3D Thread, as we convert 3D kits to 2D Standard Kits. Likely you are able to download new additions first separately before it becomes available in the megapack, so check sortitoutsi on a regular basis. Please note that the megapack currently does not contain any nations - we are not sure about supporting these (yet).

No issues for me downloading 2022.02, I'd say indeed make sure you download the correct version. You don't need 2022.01 anymore.

 

@Footygamer can you please double check?

Yeah, even if you click on 2022.02 the mediafire link is that of 2022.01. I checked the Chilean clubs and only Colo Colo is there which was already included in the first pack. If you could update the mediafire link that'd be great. Thanks!

Whoops this is fixed now.

Hi

I decided to download this and replace all my old SS kit files. So I moved the old folder out of the SIFolder I have set up.

I downloaded this new pack and put it in my kits folder as usual. 

It did not work , infact it caused my game to crash and I was unable to reload my save or start FM again as it kept crashing

 

Then of course I removed the new pack and replaced it with my old SS kit pack and the game is up and running again.

Its not a massive deal but I guess I would like the newer kits ……any ideas what I may have done wrong?

Thanks

That sounds unusual - graphics packs shouldn't cause crashes. Is this during an existing save or when starting a new one?

 

My advice first of all would be to cut your kits folder and paste it into your desktop as a backup. Then, open the game with no custom kits in your game folders at all, and reload the skin. Next, add in this pack in the appropriate folders and reload the skin again. The reason for the two steps is that the only thing I can think of would be that the game doesn't like finding the new kits when it expects the SS kits, and the first reload will stop that.

 

if this doesn't work, can you show the folders where you have placed the kits, and where you have placed the editor data files?

Hi

I have followed your instructions above but again it crashes my game,…….it makes beeping noises and then goes to the start screen, but without the options menu to start the game.

Not to worry I will stick to the ones I have. Thanks for your input though

I would love to try and get this sorted. I am a bloody novice and clearly I am doing something obviously wrong ;-)

I have attached my screenshots below

 

So I am simply removing my SS Kits folder from the kits folder and replacing it with this new pack……..this is causing it to crash

 

Just to add I am wary of sharing screenshots so if there is any security risk at all please feel free to delete them

Have you tried copying 1. SS kits and 3. FC'2 kits to your desktop and deleting them from your kit folder so ONLY 2. Standard kits is in there?

Your folder infrastructure looks correct, so if that doesn't work it might be a bug to raise with SI. However, if you've got config files for two or three different packs in there competing over the same teams it might be breaking your game.

@Jamaicaman90 @Womaz  I followed the speech and I was wondering, maybe for some reason there is a problem if the kit folders (2D standard and 3D) are in the same path? I usually have two separate folders, in one I put the 2D kits, in the other the 3D ones. I don't know if this can cause problems, in case you do a test with two / three championships, upload them separately and see if it still gives you the same problem.

I could try this but that would mean I have no 3D kits in my game surely?

This doesn't cause a problem for me - everything is in one ‘Kits’ folder, then split by nation, then split by league, then within that a folder for 2D and a folder for 3D. @Womaz can you check that you don't have 2D and 3D graphics in the exact same folder (as in, you can preview the thumbnails for 2D and 3D kits at the same time when looking in a folder?

I assume this would not make a difference as I have them in the same folder at present and it works. Like I say though I have very basic knowledge of file structure

I have the 3D kits and 2D kits in different folders as shown in the screenshot above.

@Jamaicaman90 @Womaz  Ok, yes, actually mine was a "desperate" suggestion 😀 since the problem you are experiencing is really anomalous.

I think I revert to my previous suggestion - flag it on the bug reporting forum on the SI website.

 

I'm certainly at a loss to explain it, sorry.

@Womaz I was thinking .. some time ago they told me that for those who use the Mac there is a limit of file editor to load, I think it is 194, after which the game crashes with each new save. I have no idea if for windows there is a limit for the data editors, try to make a last attempt, load a save without using the data editors and see if it continues to crash. (obviously the data editors are to be used only and exclusively on Fm22).

Thanks for your posts , they are much appreciated. 
However when I think it’s starting to go over my head a bit I tend to just leave things as they are .

I usually just update the packs and have no issues at all. I just wanted to use this pack as it would be a total update to some of my out of date kits

Try extracting them to the editor data folder (not the kits folder) and removing the .zip files. It's unlikely to be the cause but it's possible.

I am getting a new lap top in next few days so this might be the time to try this again. 

I am sort of reluctant to delete the other kit packs as I have a lot

Absolutely love this kit pack. Been crying out for a one download kit megapack in the default style for years. Now my go-to of choice. Any plans for international & brazil league kits yet?

keep up the amazing work and many thanks!

I'm not allowed to include Brazil from the authors of the 3D material. National team kits face issues with the 3D material meaning I'm unable to include them in a proper fashion. I guess the PES to FM converter could do some magic there but it is hard collecting all kits for all nations available + making the colorfix files. So I don't expect to include them for FM22. For FM23 we have to see if the model changes, if so that would require a lot of work and I expect us to rely on tools as the kitcreator to generate the 2D material (currently it's the more accurate Photoshop script).
