Hi,

 

I've made a file that can be merged with NewGan's config.xml to map a face to any player or staff that doesn't have a face file in the Cut Out Player Face Megapack (around 280.000). This will remove all the black silhouettes of the game:

 

You need:

 

V2:

  • Re-generated the whole file including missing palyers due a bug in Newgan (#221).

 

Usage:

    1: Open the downloaded file world.txt with any text editor, like Notepad++.

    2: Select all the text (Edit/Select All or Ctrl+A). There are around 280.000 lines, it may take a while.

    3: Copy (Edit/Copy or Ctrl+C)

    4: Generate your config.xml file with newgan (usually located at C:\Users\[USER]\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2024\graphics\FMNEWGANv3\config.xml)

    5: Open NewGan's config.xml

    6: Go to the last record, at the end of the file:

    7: Paste (Edit/Paste or Ctrl+V):

    8: Save

    9: Reload skin on FM2024

 

Notes:

  • You need to do this every time you generate a new config.xml (even with preserve), becase newgens have “r-” as part of the ID, while the players/staff of this file doesn't have them.
  • Is recommended to make a backup of you config.xml file to easily restore if things go bad, or you want to update it.

Hi, good job. Could you please give some more details?

 

  • Does the preserve function work later on when the file is manually edited?
  • Does your config file make use of the cut out megapack? I couldn't see reference to it, only to newgan-files

 

After thinking a bit, is it maybe like this:

 

  1. Cut-out megapack has one config.file
  2. Newgan has one config.file.
  3. And you add yours to a third location.

What I do is revert my changes on config.xml, then do a preserve update, then paste again at the end. Otherwise the file will keep growing a lot.

Maybe something wrong with the skin you are using? Default game settings and skin should have this silhouettes

I noticed that preserve overwrites this manual changes, so i suggest to remove this changes before generating with preserve, then apply again.
My file doesn't use megapack files, but I used it as reference to know which faces are missing.

 

So it is like this:

1: Cut out megapack for most of the players & staff already existing in the game. 

2: Regens faces generated by newgan and their config file.

3: My file for players & staff already in the game (no regens) without a face in cutout megapack. Since I'm reusing the faces files from newgan megapack, this changes have to be made in newgan config file.

It works good, thanks! I duplicate the Newgan file before i add worldV2.txt. Next year, delete the config.xml, rename copy back to config.xml and then run Newgan/preserve. And repeat process.

First you need the two packs at top. Cut-out faces and Newgan.

They both have instruction on how you install them. You must do that first.

 

When you have got that to work:

  • when using Newgan the program makes a Config.xml file. This is the file that describes the graphic of the newgan faces. This is the file you want to use.
  • Make a backup of that one, and keep it in the same directory.
  • The same with worldv2.txt: keep a backup in the same directory.

 

You are going to edit the Config.xml as described. You paste worldv2.txt at the botton, and then config.xml ALSO make references to the newgan pictures for the black profile faces

 

You do this once a year. So next year, (or next time) you are going to use Newgan to give all the new regens faces you have to use the PRESERVE function in Newgan.

This function looks at the OLD config.xml file to see what changes that should be done.

Since you have edited this file this will clutter the file up.

So therefore, before you begin NEWGAN the second time you delete your editet Config.xml file, and replace it with the untouched old config-copy.xml.

That way NEWGAN can use the PRESERVE.

 

And after the process you copy the config.xml once more so you keep a raw-file to next year when you do the preserve once more.

And add worldv2.txt to the new config-xml file.

 

you have to do this every year. A bit process but goes fast when you know the drill.

i want to ask you few questions.

  1. Why do we need …. Cut-out faces . I don't see it being touched throughout the whole procedure.
  2. Make config file for newgan by changing pictures of regan .and make a copy of this and keep it in the same directory.
  3. u paste worldv2.txt at the bottom of that config file …what do you mean by “ALSO make references to the newgan pictures for the black profile faces”.

  4.  

 

  1. Because Cut-of Faces gives faces to a lot of persons and MattyOlav has only listed the faces that are not covered by these faces.
  2. It was probably bad english but:
    1. If you drop Cut-out faces you probably will have a lot of black siluhouettes because Cut-off faces replaces a lot of those.
    2. you MUST have NewGan correctly installed for using this.
    3. This is just a add'on to Newgan. Newgan only takes regen-faces. This file add pictures to black silhouttes that cut-of faces has not replaced.
