Have you moved the contents of 5.01 into the main 5.0 folder or did you move the WHOLE 5.01 update folder in?

And if so how many images do you now have in the folder and what is the size (in MBs) of the config file?

I would download directly to your desktop and move it over once download is complete...

Thanks for the help, I'm trying it now. Hope it works this time
I again downloaded the pack but Winrar says that "the image compression method is not supported." I also tried with 7zip and Ezark ... Have you an idea? Please ...
Whats the direct path for MAC OSX, in terms of where to put the files.?

Documents (From the OSX Task Bar) -> Sports Interactive - > Football Manager 2013 -> Graphics ???

***EDIT***

Hah, as a side note, just noticed that this is my first post in 3 1/2 years. Good effort on my part.

I have a problem with the facepack.

I have downloaded version 5.00 through premium subscription and extracted it through 7zip into a graphics folder.

For some strange reason I can only get approximately 30,000 files to work. The other 86,000 files dont seem to extract/work properly. I am not sure why.

If i access the files, they are all there, all 116,000 of them or however many it is and yet some of them are listed as being 0kb in size and when you click on them it says that 'photo gallery cannot display this image because it is an empty file', yet when you click on any of the working photos, it shows the picture clearly.

Any ideas?
Guys I have followed the instructions perfectly and the face pack still doesn't work for me. Any ideas?
Could it be because I've already started a career and transferred some players?

Where have you placed the folder ?
Do you have a config in the megapack folder ?
How many images do you have ?
Have you changed the settings on FM preferences ?

I have placed the folder in the graphics folder.
No I dont have a config file.
I have over 10,000 images.
I have changed the settings in FM Preferences.
your missing 100,000 images and the config which is how fm reads the images
Hi guys dont know if anybody can help but ive downloaded the MP twice now, waited quite a few hours each time only for it to say this file might have been moved or deleted, and then when i find it its only a partial download , any ideas why this is?
None at all, you may have an unreliable connection...? Try using a download manager (search google) to download the file correctly.
Ok thanks i will try that, do you reccomend any particular download manager? Thanks for the quick reply

Edit - Ok found one now, hopefully it works this time!

Sorry not sure, check google.
All other user issues seem to have been dealt with.

Try extracting the pack with winrar instead.

Same here, try extracting it winrar.
Hi everybody.Can you help me please ? I need an information about the version of megapack that I have...Last year i was downloading megapack,peace by peace...owerwriting and updating the existing megapack version in the game...My problem is that I stop playing the FM this spring...and now i don't have a clue which version of megapack I have ? And I don't wont to start from scrach downloading it...The version I have in the c;\users\documents\SI\FM...have a 109446 files/images...and a config file is a 8 mb (8,000,673) size...Does anybody knows which version do I have ? I think that the latest version I was downloaded and updated is 4,8,but I don't know...
The megapack up to & including 4.08 had 108,512 files in total so you've probably got 4.09 as well. To be on the safe side I suggest you start by downloading 4.09.
Hi guys!
I have downloaded all of the parts of this style, and i put them in the folder graphics/facepacks. I check the option of reloading skin and uncheck the cache skin option, in the interface of the game. But in the game, the faces dont appear... What can i do? I think i did everything ok...
Hi

I'm not certain if this is a related problem, but since downloading and installing this pack yesterday, I am getting "unpacking errors" when coming out of the match screen. I can skip past the errors, but I then get graphical glitches from that point. Restarting fixes the glitches.

Would also like to say that after years of playing FM I had never tried changing ANYTHING graphically. The clarity of your instructions and quality of the support you offer here gave me the confidence to go ahead and try these - also changed skins and am working on logos!

Thanks very much for this pack, and also for the quality of this site.
Fortunes' always flying
Hi Guys,

Just want to say a huge thank you to the guys who put in all the work making this facepack, and to the admin who are trying their hardest to sort out everyone's issues on this thread, which appears to be Mons, Mullen18 and Rowan!

I downloaded the entire pack as one yesterday, which took the best part of 12 hours overnight! But was nonetheless well worth the wait! I followed your instructions to the word, and it has worked a treat first time! To the facepack I've added the icon megapack, the logos, the kits, and my game now looks fantastic! It just never feels right until youve got all the photos and add ons in your game.

So thanks again for all your hard work making the pack and then dealing with all the problems and issues, some of us out there really appreciate all your efforts!!

Happy customer,

Cheers!
bigdorl9, it's always nice to have a satisfied customer complimenting us on our work and technical support; makes it all a bit more worthwhile

How many images in all do you have? Do you have a config.xml file?

How good a PC do you have? Could be that your system is not too good and it can't cope with FM and the amount of graphics it's loading.
I have downloaded all the zip files
Unzipped them all what is the next stage?
As I have noticed there is no .XML file with all the code on as usual
If someone could help me that would be great

Thanks

Extract each zip file separately to a temporary folder.

Move all the images from all these folders to the folder path indicated in the installation instructions.

You can create the config yourself using fmXML, or you can download update 5.01 which will add and improve loads of images as well as adding the whole config file.

Is there software to extract these zips to a folder? as at the moment Im having to copy all the files which is time consuming.

So once the update (5.01) is downloaded all the files will be included on the .xml?

Thanks for the help.
hey guys.

I have now tried to download the 5.01 megafacepack, i have a fast line and it only take an hour, but i cant get past 74%, i have tried 3 times now with the same result, i have downloaded the logos megapack and installed it, hope you can help.

Regards Andi.
I’m having some difficulty getting all the faces into the game. I’m guessing that it’s only the 5.01 update pack faces that are appearing in my game, I could be wrong.

I’ve followed the instructions and extracted the 5.0 mega pack into the graphics folder, then added the contents of the 5.01 update pack into the 5.0 mega pack folder. I now have a total 118,255 items in this folder, including an 8.18MB config xml document. I’ve also selected the correct in game preferences as shown. I’ve tried changing skins and extracting the mega pack and update pack into separate folders, which have made no difference.

From what I can see very few faces are showing up in the game. A few well known faces that are showing up are Lionel Messi (+ the majority of Barcelona), Edgar Davids, Alexander Buttner and Craig Bellamy. No Ronaldo, Rooney, van Persie, etc. Also, very few English Championship and Scottish Premier League faces appear, which used to appear originally.

Any advice to get all faces working in my game would be appreciated. I’m enjoying the in game appearance with the graphics from this site, improves the FM experience.

Sounds like you may have other facepacks with other configs conflicting...? The Megapack has to be the only one, much like the Highlander.

If it's not that, try Clearing The Cache


Andi -

I'm not sure why that keeps happening. I don't think the problem is at this end. Obviously it's a very large file and requires a reliable connection. You could try downloading a Download Manager (check google, lots of free ones) and copy the link into that and trying to download that way. If there are any breaks in connection it won't effect the download and will resume.

The only face packs I have are the mega pack 5.0 and update pack 5.01 (with the contents of this within the mega pack). I’ve just tried the config from the mega pack 5.0 (which had been overwritten previously when I added the update pack) instead of the config from update pack 5.01, however nothing has changed.

Clearing the cache also made no difference.
Can you confirm the EXACT location of the pack?

I’ve also tried it in a sub-folder called ‘faces’.
