Ahead of the release of the FM20 beta in the coming days/weeks, we are delighted to be able to make the 12.0 cutout faces megapack available for download.
...


Fantastic work. Thanks so much to everyone involved in cutting the faces, pulling the pack together and sharing with the Football Manager community.
Update 1 fm20 are live and available for download

Torrent will be available soon.

.


After too many years if incremental updates (did I or didn't I get them all ), dubious custom enhancements and moving them from version to version, I finally took the plunge, deleted the lot and took a clean fesh download of the full pack to celebrate the realease of FM20

A big for all the excellent work, and a massive thank you to everyone involved in pulling togther this must-have enhancement for the game.
Hi Folks,

I have uploaded my SS Style Default kits for FM20, and you can find them HERE

My FM18/FM19 default kits will still work, but these have been tweaked a little and the effect / texture has been improved.

@hammer9 @Qvordrup - sorry guys, I think I have managed to upload them to the wrong place again this year. For some reason I seem to have real difficulty getting them into the right place. Grateful if you could move them if I have got it wrong again.

«This comment has been edited»
You can find them HERE on Sortitoutsi


«This comment has been edited»
hi, can you update with above so far......to relink for SS style default kits if possible or you have already updated?


Updated the pack. Versions done for Qvordrup added as alts.
@Fidney One last request could you make goalkeeper back number 16,17 and 18 that matches the other ones you made for me?


Goalkeeper backs as requested:

Kit Style 16 https://i.imgur.com/hdOMW0b.png https://i.imgur.com/tFUz6pv.png

Kit Style 17 https://i.imgur.com/E1m3vqF.png https://i.imgur.com/7JoEjzW.png

Kit Style 18 https://i.imgur.com/6ZzYmnG.png https://i.imgur.com/gcpL2yH.png

Hope these are OK for you.
@Fidney I don't know if I'm stretching my luck, But I like the version of the number 16 kit so much that I would like you to make me kits number 17 and 18 with the same stripe (same width of stipe) that is more narrow than the one in the pack.


No problem:

17

Hi @Fidney

I was wondering if you could help me and make me a slightly different version of kit number 16 (both front and back)? I'm looking for a more narrow stripe in the middle (same or slightly more narrow stripe than kit number 17 and 18). Just because I think the number 16 kit looks to similar to kit number 9


No problem. How's these?

@bolid74 Tremendous work with these kits mate - you're a kit making machine!, and thank you so much for sharing.

I hate to be critical given all your fantastic work, but the badge on this is not quite right - you've used a kind of hybrid "old badge and centenary badge". The one you're used on the 3D kit is spot on.

I assume you've got it in hand and will be sorting for the full pack release, but wanted to point it out just in case.

Update 2019.08 (from 2019.06) to match the Metallic Logo's pack now available - see link in OP
I have a technical question.
I extracted 3D default kits and I'd like to edit them to make them more compatible with these 2D default kits. My question is what should be the coding line in config.xml if I pack them later as a stand alone pack?

Or, if @Fidney is interested, perhaps we could join packs and put them all in a single pack, both 2D and 3D default kits?


Hi mate - sorry for the delay in responding, as mons said, I don't get round to visiting sortitoursi as often as I used to, or as often as I'd like.

Interesting that there is not a config in the defaults 3D kits. I've tried experimenting with creating 25 all black default kits (makes it easy to spot if they are being used!) and adding a config to it on the same lines as in the 2D kit pack, but, no SI ain't gonna make it that easy. All I've managed to do is make the kits that hang behind your 3D manager on the start screen black!
Update 2019.06 (from 2019.05) now available - see link in OP
@Fidney sorry I have a curiosity, how can you make a package of numbers? thanks again for your work



For those in the pack I just re-sized the SI ones because they were too wide for the SS style shirts, but that was back in FM17, however the FM2019 numbers are thinner anyway so you don't need the ones in the pack (I no longer use them).

However, if you really wanted to create a set from scratch you need something like Photoshop - but be warned, with 99 numbers to create it's a drawn out painfully boring process.

1. You basically create a transparent square approx. 90 pixels wide x 80 pixels tall.
2. Add the number 88 (because 88 is the widest number in the set) as a text layer using your preferred red font and red "ink"
3. Change the font size so that it almost fills the 90 x 80 box
4. Duplicate that layer - he original then becomes your number template - toggle it so that layer is not showing
5. In the duplicate layer, edit the text to change the number to the next one you want (don't do any more resizing).
6. Then you "rasterise" the duplicate layer you created (which basically turns the number into a shape) and add a green stroke (it's one of the Photoshop effects) 2 pixels wide.
7. Resize the canvas to 220 pixels x 220 pixels (which doesn't do anything to the number you have created, just adds more empty space around it.
8. Save that as X.png (with X being the number you have made).
9. Delete, the created layer.
10. Toggle the template layer so that it is showing again.
12. Go to step 4.

There are other ways of course, but the above is what I would do.

Update 2019.05 (from 2019.04) now available - see link in OP
@Fidney very probably my request is not clear or not possible, I thank you anyway and I congratulate you again for your work


@MirkoFerrari6 I get what you mean now. It is possible.

There are 14 files (0.png to 13.png) in the attached zip. Extract them and then place those 14 files in the following location, REPLACING the 14 files with the same name that are already there:

C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default\logos

Enjoy :-)

kindly there is the possibility 'to have a package of default kits with logo and technical sponsor or in any case a new version for fm19, thanks in advance


Not sure I understand what you mean, this pack does include logo and sponsor for the default kits as you can see from the screenshots in the OP.

Update 2019.04 (from 2019.02) now available - see link in OP
Update 2019.02 now available - see link in OP
Hello,

Are we going to have an update of these beautiful backgrounds according to 2018/19 season ?

Regards



Hi @ampam1 - I have produced an update to v2019.01 which brings this right up to date with the latest update for the Metallic logos.

I have also moved to a new thread in the General FM2019 Graphics Discussion HERE where you can find the link for the latest update and where I will be posting any future updates.
Created using kremmen's (and more latterly Armagedon_55 & Qvordrup's) awesome Metallic Logos, and used with their kind permissions (many thanks indeed), I am proud to present my Chalkboard Backgrounds which although optimised for FM2019 work equally well in previous versions.

Chalkboard Backgrounds FULL 2018.00a
Chalkboard Update 2018.02 (from 2018.00a)
Chalkboard Update 2019.01 (from 2018.02)

UPDATES
Chalkboard Update 2019.02 (from 2019.01)
Chalkboard Update 2019.04 (from 2019.02)
Chalkboard Update 2019.05 (from 2019.04)
Chalkboard Update 2019.06 (from 2019.05)
Chalkboard Update 2019.08 (from 2019.06) **ADDED 11/07/2019**

As in previous years, the update version number for my backgrounds mirrors the update version for the Metallic logos

Enjoy

@Fidney, I had the bit in bold below missing:

user data folder/graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default (with everything from graphics in lower case).

It's also working fine on a different hard drive than C, so you can be sure it works as long as it's installed properly. Thanks again


Glad to know you've got it working, and thanks for the confirmation that the critical part of the file path is the bit after the user data folder.
@Fidney, thanks for the explanation. I'll check and correct the path, though I kept it the same as FM18's iirc.

Does it make a difference if I have changed my user data folder to somewhere else? I imagine the first part of the path will have to change accordingly, right?


In theory - I change my user data folder slightly for FM19 Touch so that it uses the same as FM19 and I have no problems in FM Touch either, but it is still on the C drive, which might be key. Having my user data folder on a different drive isn't anything I've tried so I've no idea what effect that would have.


OK, you are seeing the SI effect overlay instead of mine (which looks so much better if it was the right shape, so I feel a little experimenting might be in order! ) which in - FM18 at least - you would see if the file path to the SS default kits was not exactly:

C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default (with everything from graphics in lower case).

If the file path differs in any way, or if you've got, for example, "Kits" instead of "kits" then you will still see the SS kit shape, but with the SI overlay.

This is what I see:

https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/ff2e/mllqn59gx2wg0b34g.jpg
@Fidney, when using these files there's a bit of overlay on the kits. Any idea what could be causing this? Whether it's something my end or if it's something which needs to be tweaked in this download?


I just dragged all my graphics over from my Football Manager 2018 directory to my Football Manager 2019 directory, and I am not seeing any issues.


Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing?
In case anyone is interested, these work fine in FM19, at least in the Beta anyway.

The default kits this year are identical to last, and there are no additional designs added this year.
Good to know that real names and graphics work on Android tablets.

Could you please give me a few tips in regard to getting graphics into FMT?

Thanks for any help.


OK, first of all, the Android version has the same folder structure as the PC version, so in theory you can just copy across whatever you have on your PC onto your tablet.

However - at least in my case - for the graphics it simply could not cope with copying across so many small files and it would always time out (or my patience would), so for the bulk of your graphics you need to create fmf archives (which is how SI provide the in-game graphics) using the archiving tool.

Second problem I hit was that it did not like very large files and fmf archive over 2Gb refused to transfer to my tablet. I wanted ALL the club badges on my tablet, so I actually had to create 2 fmf archives for the Normal sized ones, each with it's own config.

So, in the end I have fmf files for faces (this one I downloaded and is a reduced file), flags, kits, stadiums and trophies, then rather than a clubs.fmf I have a clubs folder and inside that I have a normal.fmf a normal2.fmf and a small.fmf

You can still have the same folders in ...graphics/pictures as you do on the PC with unarchived graphics in (which I have for some custom graphics for a made up club) and they work just as well and alongside the .fmf archives it's just that it's not practical to have all the graphics this way - you need bulk in an .fmf file.

So, once you have the graphics on your android, you are half-way there. You need to switch skins for them to show.

I downloaded a set of skins, and each skin was quadruplicated (is that a word?!) - for example it came with "fmc dark graphics", "fmc dark graphics1", "fmc dark graphics2" and "fmc dark graphics3" and instructions said that for your graphics to show you need to switch skins which seemed fair enough.

But what I didn't realise was that the first time you use a skin it locks the graphics for that particular skin to whatever you have at that time - so if you add logos then switch skins, the logos will show, but if you then add kits you need to switch to another skin for them to show too, and just to make it as frustrating as hell - if you switch back to the previous skin only the logos will show. Took me ages and a whole lot of swearing to work this out, and by the time I had, I had switched between all available skins so I had to "make" another version of that skin (which is copying and renaming en existing version, and editing the skin_config.xml - easy if you are familiar with this kind of fiddling, but daunting if not).

For ease and to save yourself a lot of pain and make sure you get all the graphics you want in place on the tablet first, THEN change the skin.

Hope this helps (or at least doesn't confuse).
