You will note that the default kits pick up the correct badge for whatever club you are using them for, which is cool. However, this means that the badge overlay does not appear to work like it did last year and as a consequence I cannot get the manufacturers logos and sponsors to work this year (as I built them into the badge overlay). Will update if I can ever figure it out.
***CARE - the file paths for the installed default kits must be EXACTLY as specified to avoid the SI "effect/texture" appearing over the kits. Even a change as simple as a capital letter instead of a lower case letter will cause SI "effect/texture" to be superimposed over the kit.
1. Place the "Fidney's FM20 SS Style Default Kits v1" file into the following directory:-
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020
Users\USERNAME\Library\Application Support\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics
2. Right click and select "Extract Here"
If/when you see the message saying would you like to replace an existing file select "Yes to All" - this will ONLY over-write files with the same name in the destination. All other files will remain untouched.
CARE - I believe that unzipping files does not work the same way on a Mac.
For Linux and Mac operating systems please ensure that you place the extracted files in the exact same locations as the file path in the archive, but please ensure that you do not delete any other files when doing so.
If you are happy with your default kits having a Sports Interactive style effect (texture) as shown in the left hand side of my screenshot then skip instruction 3, and go straight to no. 4.
3. If you prefer your default kits to have the SS kit style effect (texture) as shown in the right hand side of my screenshot simply navigate to the following folder:
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default
Users\USERNAME\Library\Application Support\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default
Then rename the file called effect.png to effectALT.png and the file called effectALT1.png to effect.png
NOTE: This folder also contains versions of these effects without the neck shadow - if you want to use either of those just rename them to effect.png instead
4. If the SS style default kits don't show in your game then go into Preferences, turn off skin caching and reload your skin.
P.S. I do not have a Mac so instructions for Mac have been cobbled together from what I have found online and "borrowed" from other posts. If anything is incorrect, or inappropriately worded then I would be grateful if you would let me know so that I can correct. Thanks.
