Did you change anything related to FM between the last time they worked and today? Graphics don't just decide not to work; you'll have inadvertently done something to disable them.

The only thing I can think of is that I removed a couple of leagues from my current save to to make the game speed better

You didn't install any other new graphic packs, or something similar?

I have the exact same problem.

Worked fine yesterday and today all I see, are black shadows where the cutouts should be.

Same goes for logos (all being downloaded from here)

The only thing I did was updating face pack, which Ive done many times before on previous games without a problem.

 

EDIT: Turns out steam, somehow erased user data directory from preferences. Copied a formula, deleted cache and it works fine.

No idea what he means either. Steam would only delete game files, not anything you have created. Double check your Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2023/graphics folder to check all your downloads are there. If they are then check “Location” in FM preferences to confirm where your files are stored. if necessary change it.

Are you saving your graphics in the default folder, or is it on external drive? If the latter, you need to change some fields in the Steam properties for the game to read it.

 

Can I have screenshots of your graphics folder (showing clearly the full path)? As well as of the interface section of your in-game preferences.

@Biiddy, I suggest putting it in the Documents folder, not the OneDrive equivalent.

I have a similar issue, last night everything works fine. I have neither installed or changed anything and today morning the normal sized logos stop working, small ones still do like shown in the screen for examble in the table.

 

I've tried everything including re-install the full game, delete all graphic mods and put in the graphic folder just the logopack (tried fmg steel, metellaic logs, standard logos). Everytime same result, small logos works, middle size and big not.

 

Have any one an idea what I can do to fix it?

Hi!

 

I had the same situation and I managed to solve it, thanks to God!

 

Steps: 

  1. Cut all the data from Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2023\graphics
  2. Paste it somewhere else, preferably not within any of the Football Manager related folders
  3. Launch the game or, If already active, switch to the game window
  4. Go to Settings → Preferences
  5. Go to Advanced tab
  6. Change the settings' view option to All
  7. Ensure the “Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences” setting's button is ticked
  8. Press the “Reload Skin” button
  9. Click on the “Reset" and "Clear Cache“ buttons
  10. Press the “Confirm” button
  11. Return to the File Explorer related window and go to the folder with the moved data
  12. Move the related files and data back to the location from Step #1
  13. If the desired result is not encountered, restart the game
  14. Load the same game data and repeat the procedure from Step #3 to Step #12

I did something similar on my local machine and I hope these details will help other people, as well.

 

In case of adjacent questions someone may have regarding this situation, I can be contacted by a reply to this message and I will respond to them as fast as possible.

 

Have an excellent week!

 

Thank you very much!

I had these packs working fine when I played it off Xbox PC Game Pass, but on Steam I can only get the name fix pack to work. I can't get a custom skin to work either. It's bumming me out major.

For everyone having problems, I can also recommend my guide from official forums.

Hi all tried to follow this guide, facepack is not working. Found for some reason I have 2 sports interactive folders so followed and did for both locations but no luck. I did have them working in the past but found having loads of graphics seriously slowed my game down so removed them. I'm just playing about with the AFC Richmond database that includes the graphics, faces, logo and kits. They are saved in the same graphics folder as the logos, I have a logo, faces, kits and trophes folder in the graphics folder. Only ones not working is faces. Can anyone help?
