Download FM 2013 Cut Out Mega Facepack – Over 100K Football Manager 2013 faces!

FM 2013 Downloads

written by Johnny Karp


You need player and staff faces in FM 2013 to make the game more enjoyable and the wonderful lads at Sortitoutsi.net have provided another cracking facepack for us all, continuing their proud tradition. The FM 2013 facepack has 116,631 player and staff pictures included, which makes this the ultimate facepack for Football Manager 2013. Here’s how the pictures look like in the actual game:

Lionel Messi

Jose Mourinho

Vlad Chirichesa good Romanian centre back ;)

You want to download this, right? Just click the download image below! (Please note: clicking the download image will take you to the Sortitoutsi.net website.)

How to install the facepack in FM 2013

1. After downloading you will have a “.zip” file. Extract this file to the following folder: Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2013 > graphics”. If the “graphics” folder doesn’t exist you can simply create it yourself.

Please note: You can also extract the zip file to a location of your choice and then copy just the “faces” folder inside the “graphics” folder mentioned above. This is the way I personally recommend.

2. Start Football Manager 2013 and go to “Preferences” > “Interface”. Make sure that you tick the check box called “Reload Skin when confirming changes in preferences” and untick the “use chaching to…” box.

3.  A box will pop up saying “loading image data for the new skin”. Once this is completed the pictures should be working within the game. Then you should tick the the “use chaching to…” button again to make sure your game is loading as fast as it should.

That’s about it, feel free to ask any questions through the comments.

    Thanks for the download!

  • comment avatar Chris October 21, 2012

    Doesn’t work for me! Followed instructions exactly as above but the faces dont show up… It just gets rid of the faces that are already on the game, please help!

    Thanks!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 21, 2012

      I’m pretty sure you have not followed the instructions, there is no way the faces that were already in the game would disappear. Are you sure you placed the download in the right folder?

      • comment avatar Chris October 21, 2012

        Yeah mate, I created the graphics folder and placed it in there… I have downloaded a logo pack aswel which works fine so I know the folder is in the right place… I have followed the instructions exactly as above but no faces appear :( and the faces tha twere already on the game such as Messi etc are missing…

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 21, 2012

          Please tell me what you have in the graphics folder.

          • comment avatar Ryan Chas Owen November 13, 2012

            Same with me! have tried everything! all thats in there is the kit pics and club logos (in seperate folders)

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 13, 2012

            The kit pics in the faces folder? Excuse me but I don’t understand how that is identical to anything here.

      • comment avatar Radd December 20, 2012

        remove the logos, put only the faces folder in the graphics folder try it then if it works add the logos after, that worked like a charm for me

        • comment avatar Wijaya May 31, 2013

          it worked fine on mine, Thank you

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah October 21, 2012

    Do you have ton start a new game beacuse they haven’t worked for me?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 21, 2012

      No, you just have to reload the skin.

      • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah October 21, 2012

        I have tried that 3 times and it hasn’t worked

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 21, 2012

          Please describe what you have in the graphics folder.

          • comment avatar Gary McKay July 25, 2013

            I have tried several facepacks including this one and none of them have worked so far, I also used peazip to extract the files. I have cleared the cache and reloaded on preferences can anybody advise on what I am doing wrong as I’m sure its something on my end but I cant figure it out?

  • comment avatar Gary October 21, 2012

    Hi All,
    I have downloaded he face pack no problem as i did last year on my desktop.
    This year however i have bought a new laptop.
    When i try to extract the files (using 7-zip file manager) the e tract keeps getting stuck after around about 4/5 minutes.
    Any ideas whaty i could do to get around this or can you recommend a new programme to use instead of 7-zip??

    Many thanks

  • comment avatar Gary October 21, 2012

    Thanks Johnny will try that now

  • comment avatar Lye October 22, 2012

    Hi guys,

    Initially it won’t work for me either but once i unclick “Use caching to decrease page loading times”, confirm and it works fine for me.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 22, 2012

      Good, thanks for sharing that.

  • comment avatar Aaron October 23, 2012

    Hi Johnny, downloaded the facepack and extracted it but the photos aren’t working and it says the file isn’t supported. Any idea how I can fix them?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2012

      Try de-selecting “Use caching to decrease page loading times” in Preferences, as Lye suggested earlier. That did the trick for him, might work for you as well. Not sure I understand what you were trying to do when you got the not supported message.

      • comment avatar Aaron October 23, 2012

        Sorry should have made it a bit clearer. When the file was unzipping peazip said the type of file was not supported, and when I went to view the images I got the same message. The kits have downloaded fine as have the logos, but the facepack hasn’t.

        • comment avatar Aaron October 23, 2012

          I’ve just done that and its now working fine, thanks!

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2012

          The downloaded file might be corrupted then, try to download it again or something.

  • comment avatar Casey McHugh October 23, 2012

    How did you’s install it ? through crocko.com or something else ? i’m finding it hard downloading it

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2012

      I downloaded directly from Sortitoutsi.net because I have a premium account there (around 10 pounds per year). I agree that downloading from those sharing sites is difficult but there’s no other option I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Arong Sit Pisontnakul October 26, 2012

    Thank you so much for the download Johnny!! :D

  • comment avatar adam October 27, 2012

    hi – a bit off topic, i added my picture for manager, when the game loaded 1st time it was there, however in preferences – interface – i changed the screen resolution, now my picture has gone (the face pack pics still show) – i’ve tried naming the picture the unique user id way, but still no luck – any ideas?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 27, 2012

      You also have to insert that unique user id in the config.xml file, at least that’s how it was done in FM 12. However, I have to say that I haven’t lost my manager pic after installing the facepack in FM 13, so I don’t know how and why yours disappeared.

  • comment avatar James Smith October 28, 2012

    Hi

    I have downloaded the file a couple of times and followed all of the instructions, but when I go to unzip the file(using 7 Zip) approx 89,000 of the files are saying “unsupported compression method”. I can see the files in the unzipped folder but they have no file size and no picture shows up in either in the game or in windows picture viewer. Any one else had the same problem and know a solution?

    Cheers

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 28, 2012

      The downloaded file might be corrupted then. Maybe try downloading from another mirror, if there are more available for non-premium users. I have a premium account at Sortitoutsi and the download worked fine right away.

  • comment avatar RiotAct November 1, 2012

    In all your instuctions you should state that people have to untick the “use chaching to…”-box in preferences to make the graphic work – this is why people is having trouble!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 1, 2012

      You are right, I forgot to add that line in this one. Thanks for the heads up.

  • comment avatar Niclas November 2, 2012

    I have now, MULTIPLE times tried as described but it wont work.
    Does it have any effect that only 4 of the 12 files have been downloadet?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2012

      Of course it does, you have to have all the files.

      • comment avatar Niclas November 2, 2012

        But when I open for example the first file, I can still see their faces?
        Thanks for the answer :)

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2012

          Yes, but those are just a part of the pictures. And you also need the config file, otherwise it won’t ever work. That’s why you have to download all the pieces.

          • comment avatar Niclas November 2, 2012

            What is the config file and where will I find it?

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2012

            It should be in one of the 12 files you mentioned.

          • comment avatar Niclas November 2, 2012

            Thanks again, I have just finished downloading all the files. If I’m doing as mentioned now, I should have the faces in the game right?

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2012

            If you follow the instructions there shouldn’t be any problem.

          • comment avatar Niclas November 2, 2012

            I must do something wrong. I have followed all the instructions, but it still wont work…

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2012

            Well, I can’t guess what you might have done wrong, but you can check the graphics>faces folder and see if you have the faces there plus the config file. If not, you might not have extracted the files correctly.

  • comment avatar anthony November 3, 2012

    ive downloaded part 1-4 but 5-12 are coming up has error?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2012

      You should post that at Sortitoutsi, those are their download links.

  • comment avatar Jack November 3, 2012

    It does not work for me , it is a winrar file and i put it in my graphics folder but when i go into prefrences and reload the skin and go into the game the faces are not there

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2012

      You have to extract the winrar file, not put it as it is in the graphics folder. Read the instructions, please.

  • comment avatar Jack November 3, 2012

    Also I tried downloading it separately but its says Download not available
    The following download is not available: on each one :(

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2012

      So you have downloaded it or not? Because you just said you did put a winrar file in the graphics folder.

  • comment avatar Jack November 3, 2012

    yes i have

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2012

      OK, then I guess I have already answered your question.

  • comment avatar Sergi November 6, 2012

    is it free to sign up at sortitoutsi?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 6, 2012

      It is free but you can choose a premium account (10 pounds per year I think) for faster downloads.

  • comment avatar Vlad November 7, 2012

    Hey guys,

    So I put the folders ‘faces’ and ‘pictures’ inside the ‘graphics’ folder. I un-ticked the ‘cache’ thingy + ticked the ‘reload skin’. Still it doesn’t work. What’s funny is that some nation logos are changed to the metallic logos I have downloaded. Pretty weird.

    I am using Windows 8 if it counts.

    • comment avatar Vlad November 7, 2012

      LE: Seems like Im stupid :)

      One question though: Can I add an image for me as well? For some reason my avatar disappeared. Thanks.

      • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 8, 2012

        This is how it used to be done in FM 12, I guess it should work in FM 13 as well:
        1. Create a folder called “extra” (or another name of your choice) in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics\
        4. Download this file (http://www.mediafire.com/file/zgmukq1zzmd/config.xml) and save it to that folder you just created. Open it in a text editor and change the 2 picture values to the unique id. of the player picture that you want to add (in my file the value is 1394644719)
        5. Place the picture in the same folder. Rename the file with your the unique id ( 1394644719.png in my case)
        6. In the game preferences – Display & Sound untick ‘Use Skin Cache’ and tick ‘Always Reload Skin on Confirm’. Press Confirm and it should now work.

    There`s brazilian`s faces ??

  • comment avatar David Otter November 13, 2012

    does this pack have all premiership teams ? and teams like Sheffield wednesday ?

  • comment avatar Vincent November 13, 2012

    Hi Johnny!

    It works perfect for the logos and kits but not for the faces! I really don’t understand what I do wrong! I put the “faces” file into graphics (just like “logos” and “kits) and I then ticked “reload skin…” and unticked “use changing…”. And it actually works for the logos and kits, as I said! Do you see the problem here? :(

    Thank you!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 13, 2012

      You should check and see what’s inside your “faces” folder, there should be all the pictures plus a config file.

      • comment avatar Vincent November 13, 2012

        I just checked : all the faces are there but I don’t see any config file! And when I start downloading the file all over again, nothing changes!

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 13, 2012

          Well, that is why it doesn’t work. Please make sure you have that file too, either download again or ask at Sortitoutsi for help to get it if it isn’t in the download.

  • comment avatar ian November 18, 2012

    For the facepacks with file contains the premier league faces? 1-13? does anyone know i really don’t want to download them all..

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 18, 2012

      You have to download them all I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar john November 20, 2012

    I was wondering if anyone knows wich facepacks are in every part..because i dont want to download 5.5 gb does anyone know in wich parts are the major champioships like premier /bundesliga/campionato?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 20, 2012

      I have already answered this, it won’t work unless you have the config file along with the images. And I don’t know in which part it is.

  • comment avatar Andrew November 23, 2012

    Hey man i did everything, and the faces still dont appear. I made the “graphics” folder, and within the graphics folder all i have are the “faces” folder from the download. What do u suggest i do?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 23, 2012

      Check what you have inside the faces folder, there should be a bunch of pictures plus a config file.

      • comment avatar Andrew November 23, 2012

        hey, yeah there is a config file plus a bunch of photos. I doubled checked again, and there were some photos that were there and some that wasnt. Like jose mourinho wasnt in the picture nor messi, but i got a bunch of championship photos

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 23, 2012

          Then I guess the download was incomplete.

  • comment avatar Anastasis November 26, 2012

    Hi, i will ask again something tha has been asked again from mayne guys. I have followed the instructions and it is not the first time I add face in FM. I do what i have to do but there are nowhere faces. The .xml is in the folder. Thank you.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      Folder structure?

      • comment avatar Anastasis November 26, 2012

        What do you mean?

      • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

        I mean check the folder structure inside the graphics folder. “faces” folder should be directly inside “graphics”

        • comment avatar Anastasis November 26, 2012

          C:\Users\Anastasis\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2013\graphics\faces

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

            It should work then, if you have also made the necessary changes in the game preferences. You should also check the number of files you have in the faces folder, the download might be incomplete (I’ve seen that happening before).

          • comment avatar Anastasis November 26, 2012

            13294 files and I have not win8

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

            The complete pack has around 115K files, so I guess your download is incomplete.

  • comment avatar Gormen November 26, 2012

    I suspect there is a problem with Windows 8 and facepacks.
    It works on my PC (w7) but not on my new laptop (w8). And I have used facepacks for years with no problem.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 26, 2012

      Haven’t tried it on W8.

      • comment avatar Gormen November 26, 2012

        I was wrong, it works with Windows8 too.
        I checked the files on my laptop, and the config file was missing in the faces/megapack folder. When I copied it over everything was fine, just like you said earlier in this thread.

  • comment avatar Anastasis November 26, 2012

    So I downloaded again the megapack and its still 13.293 picks+1 config file. And still not working. I really dont want to spend your time. I just want to help the community to solve this problem.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 27, 2012

      I repeat, there should be over 115K pictures, so there definitely is a problem either with the download or with the way you are extracting the files.

      • comment avatar Anastasis November 27, 2012

        Ok, everything works fine. Something was wrong with extraction. I used PeaZip and I have all the pictures now. Thank you for your time. I apreciate your help.

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 27, 2012

          No problem at all, glad you sorted it out.

  • comment avatar Radiant Angel December 2, 2012

    So odd. Faces, logos, kits and flags work perfectly on my desktop. However, none work on my laptop. I used the exact same process to set up and checked that the files are located in the exact same spot, have same number of files, as well as config files.

    Note that both the desktop and laptop run off the same save file that is located on dropbox. However, the graphics files and folders are separately local in the users/me/mydocuments/etc… file locations.

    The laptop is less powerful than my desktop (rated one star by FM13). Any help is appreciated.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 2, 2012

      If you have the same game settings and same folder structure in your FM user data folder on both computers it should work on both. I’m not sure what went wrong there but I suggest comparing the user data folders and see if there’s any difference between your desktop and laptop.

      • comment avatar Radiant Angel December 2, 2012

        No difference. I don’t get it… so frustrating! Every possible thing is the same between environments. One works. One does not.

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 3, 2012

          There has to be a difference, otherwise it can’t be explained.

  • comment avatar Matt December 15, 2012

    i am downloading all the parts but i only have FM 12 it works on FM12?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 16, 2012

      Yes, it should work on FM 12 as well.

  • comment avatar GMac December 18, 2012

    Hi, I’ve never used a facepack before, I downloaded the faces, however I wanted the league symbols and club badges also. I assume therefore I need to get the Icons Megapack also?

    Thanks

    GMac

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 18, 2012

      Yes, you have to get the logos pack as well.

  • comment avatar dzeko99 December 21, 2012

    Please help me
    i have done all of that but my facepack doesnt work but when i put it on the demo it works perfectly i dont know whats the problem

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 21, 2012

      Are you sure you placed the files in the correct folder?

      • comment avatar dzeko99 December 21, 2012

        yes i am sure because i have played every football manger since 2006 with facepacks
        i am definetly sure

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 22, 2012

          Is the “faces” folder directly in the “graphics” folder or is there some sub-folder in between. If so, you should move the faces folder directly under “graphics”.

  • comment avatar Football Manager Player 201021 January 4, 2013

    do you need to download all steps to get the facepack or only the last

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 5, 2013

      You have to download all the pieces.

  • comment avatar Samuel Millington February 7, 2013

    Hello Johnny, I have query for you, how come, with some players on the game, you get their ‘icon face’, but not their face on their profile!?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 7, 2013

      You should have both if you installed the facepack, have no idea why that would happen. Maybe you didn’t install it in the correct place or maybe you tinkered with some other game files?

      • comment avatar Samuel Millington February 7, 2013

        All sorted now, thanks Johnny, it seems that I didn’t extract two of the packs, so I was 9,000 faces down!

  • comment avatar Mert Kuyumcu February 27, 2013

    Hey Johnny,

    I just found you guyz and really happy to download all of these parts. Here you can reach my blog and find the talented players on #FM13. http://mertkuyumcu.blogspot.com/2012/10/football-manager-2013-talented-players.html It’s held in Turkish but not need to know in order to understand Turkish.

    Here also you can reach my YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/mertkuyumcu I’m uploading some goals on it. I was Director of Youth Football Team in one of the professional Turkish club once and won championship for two consecutive years, 2010. On the other hand, I fed up with being a Direcfor and go for Referee. So I’m referee right now. :)

    I guess meeting process is over. ;) So I’d like to be an author on footballmanagerstory.com like you or your other colleagues.

    Best,
    Mert

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 27, 2013

      Thanks for reaching out. If you want to write on out website I guess you’ll have to send me an email with what exactly you would want to write and then we could work something out. My address is johnny@footballmanagerstory.com

  • comment avatar Mert Kuyumcu February 27, 2013

    Hi again,

    I followed what you say in last four paragraphs. Here you can reach my downloads via sortitoutsi.net: http://i52.tinypic.com/1zxnwag.png (just first three parts are downloaded)

    But have a problem with the faces… I did very well with the Preferences / Interface / ”use chaching to” box. Do you think that I shouldn’t change the folders name in graphics folder as faces 1, faces 2, faces 3. Do you think it’s the problem?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 27, 2013

      You have to download all the parts and then extract them all together, not separately, it is a split archive.

  • comment avatar Hendry Lukito April 25, 2013

    Can I use this packs to FM 2012?
