The FM17 logos worked for me in FM16, just wondering if the FM17 faces will work in FM16?

Yes they will


When new update facepack? Wesley from Bruggia not face now and more players.

Soon, and asking about it won't make it come any quicker.

I have no idea who Wesley and Bruggia are and whether he has had a new cut or not; that's why we have a request system, so that people can request images there directly

Just giving us a transfermarkt link is not really helpful in terms of the megapack. If you want a player to have a new cutout, submit a good source through the request system, that's what it's there for
Hi guys, how do I download packs for the Football Manager Touch 17 version? Thanks!

Don't use FMT myself, but surely it's the same as the full game?
That's strange - never had an issue myself when downloading through the site

Can you try downloading them through a different internet browser? Apparently helps sometimes, for god knows whatever reason...


Same with different browser and in private view also. No joy

You're trying to download them directly through the site, yes?

Yep

On the off-chance this one works, can you try downloading the latest update pack and see if it's still the case?

Hi.

I downloaded the Cut Out Player Faces Megapack, the Metallic Logos Megapack & a Kitpack - the Logos & the Kits work fine but the player faces don't! I followed all the instructions & tried numerous times but to no avail. Each time I try to add the player faces, the game stays "loading" but it never loads & becomes unresponsive.

Adding graphics is not new to me because I've been playing FM for a very long time & I've always added them without problems on my previous PC.

Now I have an Apple iMac Retina 4K 21.5" (Core i5 | 8Gb DDR3) & for some reason, I just can't add the player faces.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Can I have a screenshot of your cutout megapack folder, including the contents?

There's over 8GB of images to load - so it's to be expected that it takes a while to load first time round. How long are you giving it before hard-quitting the game?

Hi mons ... thank you for your reply.

Yes, it takes a really long time - usually I quit the game after about 10 minutes because I give up.

Yesterday I downloaded the DF11 Player Faces Megapack & they worked. The game still took some time to load but in the end, it loaded & the faces worked. Obviously, it took less time to load because the DF11 has less images.

The only thing that's bothering me though is this: each time the game loads, it stays "loading" for quite some time. Shouldn't it do it just the first time? Do I need to do something else please, like untick / re-tick the settings in Preferences > Interface?

Thanks for your assistance.

Megapack works fine just not the update packs

If you have a poor computer, then it may be the case that the first time round loading the cutout faces megapack takes a little while. Can you leave it for half an hour or so? If it loads at that point, just make sure the tick the use skin cache button (or whatever it's named these days). This should help minimise the loading time next time round...

I use Chrome and the latest update pack did take me a while to download. I just clicked resume each time it stopped and it got there, eventually. Could you try this please?
Is an Apple iMac Retina 4K 21.5" Core i5 8Gb 1TB a poor computer?!

Nah ... I'm not gonna wait for half an hour! I will keep using the DF11 Megapack in that case.

"Use caching to decrease page loading times" is unticked - because it says that you should untick it if loading graphics.
"Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences" is ticked - as suggested in the Cut Out Megapack post.

Mate, I'm not a computer expert. I have no idea if that is a top-notch PC, but you seem to think it is so I have no reason to doubt you. I have a medium-to-high grade PC and it takes me 2 minutes to load the game with my 20 GB graphics folder, so it really shouldn't be taking you anywhere near as long if you have a decent set-up tbh.

I know those are what I recommended, and I stand by them, but some people have had quicker results, for some reason, if the "Use caching to decrease page loading times" box is unticked - try and give it a go yourself and let me know if it helps.
I have the same problem with my iMac. I added the Cut-Out-Facepack to the correct folder and used fmXML for the iMac. But it still doesn't work. The club logos are working just fine

As in most similar cases, I suspect it's some sort of user installation error. No worries, though, these things happen

Can I ask why you used fmXML? If you have downloaded and installed the correct files, there should be no need to use it since the config file included in the download does the job already.

Can you please upload a screenshot of the megapack folder so I can see if there's perhaps something wrong within it? Also, how do the players appear in-game? Is there the default black face instead of the cut, or is it a blank space?

I re-ticked "Use caching to decrease page loading times" & the game loads much faster now. Apparently, this option should be unticked only when adding graphics. After adding them, it should be re-ticked for the game to load faster.

Still using DF11 Megapack but maybe, if I have some spare time, I will try the Cut Out Megapack once again & be patient

Your first paragraph is what I meant to say, but you said it more clearly than me

We hope you do

Did you untick "Use caching to decrease page loading times" & tick "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences" in Preferences > Interface after adding the facepack to the graphics folder?

These two options are very important. I was having the same problem before I figured them out.

Then, once the facepacks are added & the game loads, quit, reload, go again in Preferences > Interface & tick "Use caching to decrease page loading times" so that the game loads faster.
Already noted and will be fixed in the forthcoming 9.04 update pack


If iv downloaded the Megapack 9.02 few months ago, and want the latest changes now, do i just download 9.04 or do i have to download 9.03 as well first??

Just download the subsequent updates, i.e. Update packs 9.03 and 9.04, and apply them chronologically
I've manged to download the facepack (it's 8.4 GB so seems to be okay) but whenever I try unpacking it I'm told "could not open the archive, may be damaged."

I've tried several times with different applications, I have deleted it and redownloaded it. Any ideas?

Have you tried with winrar?

Can you take a screenshot of the file?

Ahh that solved the issue. Thank you. Should've used winrar from the start, other apps worked for logos though.
