Now that you mention it, I seem to remember that FM08 couldn't handle folders with so large an amount of images in them. Try splitting the megapack into two folders and generate a config file for each with fmXML.


FM08 has a limit of either lines it can read in a config file or amount of files in a folder, I can't remember the exact number but its around 10,000-15,000 lines, so you would have to split it up into at least 15 parts.

I use a Plug-in for Paint.net called "Grid Warp", but I'm sure there must be something simular available for Photoshop. This basically lets you drag sections of pixels around which comes in handy for players with simular haircuts.

The image below would have the same problem, to fit his hair in means you have to crop the image quite some way from the bottom of his chin, but using the Grid Warp plug-in I have brought his hair (I've only done this on the left hand side as an example) closer to his face which allows you to be able to crop the image much closer to his chin.

The image on the left is the original image and how you would have to crop it to fit his hair in, while the image on the right is after using the Grid Warp tool on it.

What technique are you using to cut?

I would recommend downloading the Grim Colour Reaper plug-in as this lets you turn individual colours transparent, which is ideal for images with a single colour background.

http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae143/blackmetalboon/Untitled_zps9d5ebb69.png

I'll talk you through how to use it.

The first thing to do is add another layer to the image (black is generally best) and move this layer behind the image.

Then using the lasso tool I have slected the top part of the image which is his hair and background. Use the colour picker tool to select the images background colour (in this case it is white) and select the Grim Colour Reaper tool (it will be located in your "Effects" menu) then just adjust the Colour Tolerance slider so that the background disappears without effecting the colour/transparancy of the hair. I generally set the second slider to somewhere between 70 - 90 depending on the background colour.

Just repeat this action on the left and right sides of the image, although depending on the lighting of the image you may have to do the ears, collar, neck & jaw individually.

You may find that on some images there may be a slight amount of snow or colour difference around the edges of the players hair. To rectify this use the Magic Wand tool and click on the players hair (leave the tolerance at around 50%), this will lock the these pixels in place. Next select the Clone Stamp tool, you may need to increase the brush size depending on the size of the image, press CTRL to adjust the spacing between your brush and the clone brush before using it to remove snow/re-colour the edges.

Next rotate the image if it needs to be straightened then select the Rectangle select tool to crop the image (hold down Shift while doing this as its keeps it square) you can reposition the rectangle if needed by selecting the Move Selection tool. Now just cut and paste this into a new image.

All that is left is to resize the image to 180x180, the image seems to retain more sharpness if you are able to resize it to a multiple of this first (ie 360, 720 etc...).

I felt rebellious, this source is too good to waste, especially considering how bad the current cut is.
I'm not sure if this has been found but a good source for French teams is here, just delete " _large" from the pictures URL to get this.

Had a quick look at some other leagues but the images are mainly action shots.

Can someone remove some of the shirt, so you can only see a bit of crow.. Like the Cabaye image.

http://s27.postimg.org/s1an0az27/85075648.png https://hostr.co/file/WXADTXMcMYAz/919628.png

All the best!


Just use the Megapack Search Tool.
http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae143/blackmetalboon/franken-gens_background_zpse94ef5a5.png



32 Faces + 32 Icons (25x18) and config templates.

Place this folder in Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2014 > graphics.

Just choose a face you wish to use and open the config file with Notepad, find the line of code for the corresponding face and replace CHANGE_ME with the UID of your Regen and save the changes. Repeat this step with the config in the Icons folder.

Finally, go to "Preferences" and click on the "Interface" tab. Make sure that you tick the check box in the skin section called "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences" and un-tick the box saying "Use Caching to Decrease Page Loading Time". Hit Confirm.

I'm using Chrome on a Windows Vista, and it's working fine. What browser and OS are you using?


Windows Vista & IE9 (I think). When I get time I'll try using a different browser and let you know how I get on.
Can you give me the direct link for the rapidshare page please?

If it's this, then you should click on to download in the middle of the page. On the subsequent page, check the tickbox to the left on the rar icon, then click download selection. It's working fine for me and I don't have a rapidshare account


I've been having the same problem, been trying since it was released!

I've ticked the box, but nothing happens when you click on "download selection".
What's happening when you use Rapidshare then?


I'm having the same problem, once you select the file and click the download button nothing happens!
Is anybody interested in knocking up something similar to this for 6.0?

http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae143/blackmetalboon/Megapack50_new2.png

I can provide any MP images requested, if needed...


I should be able to knock up an updated version in the next few days. Are there any suggestions of people to use? I was thinking of Messi & Ronaldo, a few of this seasons major tansfers which have updated images(Cavani, Bale, Neymar, Özil ?), then a couple of players from around the world (MLS, A-League, Chinese Super League etc..). Are there any well known managers/referees that have had decent, updated cuts?

We only cut images from SI's default database & both images you have requested are from a custom database and therefore do not currently have ID's.

But,

The Gideon Zelalem cut can be found here as he will be assigned an ID number for FM14.

But Foday Nabay has only just turned 15 so it's highly unlikely that he'll make it into FM14.
Can someone do this? Gamefront doesn't work.


It's working ok for me, but I do know that other people have had problems with Gamefront, so I've uploaded to another site.

Hope this helps Mediafire Link - Config Template
Thanks for your reply!
i tried to clear the cache and reload the skin but after that the the picture of maupay wasnt still visible. I also checked if the picture was present in the folder and it was. i will send a screenshot of his player profile, maybe that will help you.
i hope to hear from you soon!


If he has his picture in your folder then it may be a problem with your config file.

Open the config file in your Megapack folder (use Notepad to do this) and select Edit and choose the "Find" option, type in his UID and search the config.

If it doesn't find it, just copy and paste this line of code into your config file;

<record from="85120748" to="graphics/pictures/person/85120748/portrait"/>

Then clear the cache and reload the skin.

If it is still not showing, just double check that the cut-out image of the player is saved as a PNG image.

Attached are some pictures with ID


I'll take this (PSG Youth).

Thanks so much Jereon. I've just wasted a couple of hours putting a request pack together for PSG youth. Why am I wasting my time doing this? Think it might be time for me to quit.


None of the images in his pack are named by their UID's, plus Adrien Rabiot has already been cut, so you might as well post yours!
error .zip don´t work


I've just downloaded it & it works fine.
I know a pack has just recently been released, but the images in that pack have been over sharpened and are too small, but I found larger source images.

Hi Jeroen. To request mixpacks, please read the opening post on instructions on how to do so. You need to ensure that all requested images will result in improvements, as well as collecting the pictures yourself and having the file name as the person's UID.

Moreover, a PSG mixpack from HQ sources was released quite recently, so you might want to download that...


It was mainly 1st team players & a couple from the CFA squad, since I cut that pack the CFA, U19's and U17's have updated their squad photos.
That's superb buddy...what was the source?


It was from an old news article in The Sun (just Googled his name), it's on a really dark background and had the top of his head chopped off so had to give him a hair transplant!

Does anyone know if there is a cut out available of Milan youth player Hachim Mastour?


Due to his age, Hachim Mastour is not in SI's official database (and probably won't be until FM15!) , so there hasn't been an image cut for him.

The only face of Mason Bennet was included in Update Pack 5.01, so if you haven't downloaded that pack yet you will not have it.

Is there just a blank space where his picture is? If so;

Search your Megapack folder to see if his picture is in there (UID - 29086008).

If his picture is not there just type his UID in here and just paste it in your Megapack folder.
