Samaroy's NewGen Replacement Tool
DO NOT HIT DOWNLOAD BUTTON, ONLY THE LINK BELOW WORKS

DOWNLOAD LINK: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d6-mgoXTMA6qxAEGwSpUW3Mtoam5ye4T/view?usp=sharing

This tool will autonomously replace the NewGen's within your save game with faces from the sortitoutsi facepack - it will do so based on Nationality and Ethnicity.

(For nations such as England, France, US and Australia where there are sometimes darker skin tones which do not have a secondary nationality indicating they should have a darker skin tone - and vice versa there will be some minor errors where the incorrect photo is allocated ~2% of the time - you can just manually update these if they are in your team or a rival team and become too obvious)

It is very dependent on you following the steps below, so please follow them carefully and in order

Readme - NewGen Replacement Tool

*** THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON WINDOWS COMPUTERS. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
*** YOU WILL REQUIRE MICROSOFT EXCEL TO USE THIS TOOL. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE MS EXCEL, THIS WILL NOT WORK, THERE ARE NO WORK AROUNDS.
*** THIS WILL ONLY WORK WITH ONE SAVE AT A TIME, IF YOU WISH TO USE IT FOR MORE THAN ONE SAVE, PLEASE CREATE FOLDERS OUTSIDE OF YOUR FM20 FOLDER FOR EACH OF YOUR SAVE GAMES AND COPY & PASTE THE CORRESPONDING REGEN REPLACEMENT FOLDER TO THIS FOLDER. WHEN LOADING THAT SAVE, PLEASE CUT THE FOLDER BACK INTO YOUR GRAPHICS FOLDER, ENSURING YOU HAVE MOVED THE CURRENT FOLDER OUT TO A SAVE GAME FOLDER.

1. Install the free version of GenieScout: https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm-genie-scout-20.html
- If you have an older version of FM, please install the relevant version for your year
2. Install fmXML: https://www.fmscout.com/a-fmXML-for-windows.html
3. Download NewGen Replacement Tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d6-mgoXTMA6qxAEGwSpUW3Mtoam5ye4T/view?usp=sharing
4. Unzip the zip file into your FM Graphics folder (where you place any other facepacks, kits, icons etc.)
5. Move the "Genie's.glf" file to your GenieScout layouts folder (C:\FM Genie Scout 20\Layouts\) replace the current one
6. Open Football Manager and enter your save
7. Open GenieScout and load the game
8. The fields visible should be "Name", "Nation", "Unique ID"
9. Filter for Regens using the Player Filter tool
10.Extract the list as a CSV
11.If you have added faces to the folders provided, please open "Samaroy's Rename Replacement Images.xlsm" and run it, it will take 15 mins to complete but is required before using the Replacement Tool.
12.Open Samaroy's NewGen Replacement Tool.xlsm
13.Press "Step 1" to recreate folder limits - this step is essential if you have added photos and performed step 11.
14.Press "Step 2" to select the extracted csv you created in step 10. Selecting another file may corrupt the tool and you will need to delete the entire thing and re-unzip it
15.Press "Step 3" - this will fill your regen replacement folder with regens - the naming of this folder is crucial, if you change it, it will not work.
16.Run fmXML, select the Regen Replacement folder, select all filenames are IDs, then hit "GO!"
17.Re-enter Football Manager, clear cache, reload skin - done

When updating this for a new batch of NewGens - repeat steps 6 to 17.
Discussion
The folders may need to be labelled in English exactly what they come as
Have you moved any of the excel files? Renamed any of the folders? Anything like that?

That's an error that will pop up if it can't find something it should be able to find. Given its with both files, potentially one of the folders


No, changed nothing! Just extracted the archive and directly tried to run the tool. :-/
hmmm sorry about this - let me research...
Try this...

http://www.cpearson.com/Excel/FileExtensions.aspx

specifically the extensions part in the introduction. make sure the folders display file type OR vice versa if you already have them active. I

Cool, it works now. Thanks!
What's in the facepack in the download?
Absolutely brilliant tool, really helps improve game immersion, thanks for uploading!

Might be a stupid question but is it possible to do every in game youth intake period without changing the faces already assigned?

The current tool will not replace any images already assigned.

Unless you delete the images in the folder it won't assign new ones.
What's in the facepack in the download?


I have divided the sortioutsi facepack into ethnicities to enable the tool to assign ethnically relevant images
amazing work

but I am a real dummy when it comes to this stuff.

I have a normal face pack installed and would love for the future youth players to have these instead of the blank/black faces.

is there any way to get a generic program or does it have to be done on a 1 by 1 thing..

I would happily just like my team to have faces so is there a simple drag & drop method etc ? thank you so much

Hi - no. But if you follow the steps for this tool it will replace your youth players (new gens) faces.

It won't replace the faces of the real players that are missing from your face pack sorry to say.
I am trying my best but struggling. i am up to step 10. do i name the list? where do i save it?

as when i opened step 11. i get a macro error

thanks

EDIT. I have downloaded some faces and also, where do i place them? sorry to be annoyance

The tool comes with nearly 100k images. I don't think you need to add more if you are as you say and not that experienced with this sort of thing.

Step 10 should be done in genie scout. You should save the file (anywhere, with whatever recognisable name you have) and then go back to the excel tool to load it and continue steps 11 onwards

As for the macro error? What error are you getting?

«This comment has been edited»
for some reason Macros was disabled... i enabled it and it now appears to be doing something

Brilliant! Macros are always disabled by default!
Press "Step 3" - this will fill your regen replacement folder with regens - the naming of this folder is crucial, if you change it, it will not work.

got this far and when i clicked on 3 it said end and i don't think worked.. any ideas

EDIT. tried again, got runtime error 6 : overflow

EDIT AGAIN: i read the previous post, i think I had 40K regens so limited it down to 28K.

but now the error about pathway occurs

You can use yours if you assign them to the folders mine are assigned to based on ethnicity.

But there would be no shortcut to doing this unfortunately

Once you have done this, you can run the replacement images tool also provided to update your folders with the new images correctly. This will take a long time for 20gb of additional photos and may break the tool

run-time error 76

path not found

at the last hurdle, please, any ideas in the previous post it said about the name of folders etc, do I need to update something?

EDIT

was looking in the graphics folder. is that the folder 'regen replacements' i noticed is empty?

ok i understand...thanks for clearing this out
I'm getting run-time error 9 aswell.
I already had the file extensions visible in the explorer options.
What am I doing wrong?

Turn them off. My tool assumes they are off.
Oh okay. I assumed they had to be visible.
It now works, thank you .

can you tell me what you did please?
I checked the box "Hide extensions for known file types" in the explorer options.
I also had to rename the folder "Regen Replacements" to "Samaroy's Regen Replacements" for step 3 to work.
And now it all works.
@Samuel Roy

We told you right from the start when I tried the tool that the folder had to be renamed to "Samaroy's Regen Replacements"

I have re-uploaded and this is no longer the case. Although I would like some testing on this newer version

Ok I will test it now for you

EDIT;

Just downloaded latest file

You still do have to rename folder to Samaroy's Regen Replacements to get it to work.
