Download Gigantic Football Manager 2011 Facepack

archived posts

written by Johnny Karp



I hope that most of you have already bought Football Manager 2011, a great game that should keep us busy for the next year. As always, the game is good but there are things that can make it even more enjoyable, like a facepack with more than 72,000 pictures…

The guys at sortitoutsi.net did a great piece of work again to release a superb facepack with 72,396 pictures, all made in the nice and elegant cut-out style. Here is how they look in my game:







Here’s what you have to do in order to install the facepack in your game:

First you have to download it from sourtitoutsi.net, they have a few options available. The size of the file is quite big, 3.5 GB, so they split it into several archives. You might need a program called 7-zip to extract the archives after downloading, it’s a free program that you can grab from here.

After downloading extract the files to a temporary folder of your choice. After the extraction is completed you should have a “faces” folder, most likely inside a folder named “sortitoutsi”. You have to copy or move the “faces” folder into the game graphics folder, usually located in My Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011>graphics. If the “graphics” folder does not exist in there you will have to create it.

Then launch Football Manager 2011 and go to the preferences screen. Click on ‘Display and Sound’ and tick the check box on the page called ‘Always Reload Skin on Confirm’ and un-tick then box labeled ‘Use Skin Cache’. Press confirm and there should be a box popping out saying ‘loading image data for the new skin’. When that process is completed the new faces should show in your game. If things don’t work out you can always ask for help here. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

    This looks amazing! A good facepack always makes the game feel more real and enjoyable.
    Unfortunately, I haven’t got the game yet, because there are alot of good games coming out for the PS3, which i’m going to prioritize and then get FM maybe for christmas instead.
    Anyway, when i do get the game, I’m definitely going to use this!

    I already downloaded it Johnny, it’s the best facepack available, the only issue was the lack of a torrent, not so easy to download as it is now.
    But it’s worthwhile.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I agree that it’s not easy to download but I managed to have it running in around half an hour on my PC.

      • Carlos

    that look amazing!thanks

  • vandbani

    I did everything step by step, not working. What to do?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you did everything right it should work. Make sure that you have all the 72,000+ pictures plus a config.xml file placed in one folder inside the “graphics” folder (MyDocuments>SportsInteractive>Football Manager 2011>graphics)

      • vandbani

        i don’t have any config.xml and any 72,000…pictures after i unpack sortitoutsi_megapack.7z, where i can find? pf ….

        • vandbani

          I downloaded the pieces from Filefront

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          What is it that you have after extracting the archive?

  • Josh

    My football manager seems to be lacking a “graphics” file. What should I do?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to create that folder yourself in MyDocuments>SportsInteractive>Football Manager 2011

      • Josh

        Ohhhh. Thank you!

        • Josh

          It’s not working despite going through the process. Any help?

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Josh, do you have a “faces” folder inside the “graphics” folder? Does the “faces” folder have all the pictures in it plus a file called “config.xml”?

  • Laxeyman

    Thanks for this Johnny, they look really good in your game. The only problem is the download speed, as mine is currently taking around an hour per part. It’ll be worth it though :)

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I downloaded the pieces from Filefront and it took less than half an hour overall. I would have waited even longer though, I agree that it’s worth the effort.

      • Laxeyman

        I have a problem. My config file doesn’t have ,xml after it, even though I downloaded it properly through sortituoutisi, which is probably why it isn’t working for me. How do I get the right config file?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          It might be the right file but your operating system might be set not to show the file extensions. Mine doesn’t (Windows XP) but that doesn’t mean it isn’t the correct file.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com/ Laxeyman

            I’m pretty sure it’s the right file, but it’s still not working. I’ve done everything, the “faces” folder is in MyDocuments-SportsInteratcive-FootballManager2011-Graphics, and unticked skin cache and everything, any suggestions?

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Do you have a custom data folder set in the game preferences? If so then the faces folder should be in there.

  • petethedude

    just wandering is their any easier way to do it then downloadin every individual file theirs loads cant you just download 1 big file ??

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      There is no other way at the moment since it’s quite difficult to host a 3.5 GB file anywhere on the web. That’s why the file was split into smaller bits.

  • charlie

    ive downloaded the filefront one and the 7 zip aplication but it keeps on not letting me extract the files

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Right click on the first part of the archived files and select extract, it should work just fine. Have you downloaded all the pieces? Because it won’t work unless you have all the pieces.

  • charlie

    ive downloaded everything but its not letting me extract

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I have already replied to your previous comment.

      • charlie

        its just not working

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Could you give me more details? Is there an error message popping up? Have you installed 7zip?

  • charlie

    it says it cannot open the file as an archive and i have downloaded 7zip

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Again, have you INSTALLED 7zip?

      • charlie

        yeh i have

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          So, if you right click on sortitoutsi_megapack.7z, then go to 7-Zip>Extract Here it should extract the file.

          • charlie

            i said it cannot open file as an archive

          • charlie

            it said i cannot open the file as an archive again

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Are you sure you are trying to extract sortitoutsi_megapack.7z and not one of the other pieces, like sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.002, sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.003 and so on?

  • Laxeyman

    Hi Johnny, thanks for the advice, but it’s just not working. I think I’ll give it up for today and try again tommorow.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Sorry Laxeyman, it worked for me right from the first attempt.

  • charlie

    it says 001 after it

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you have a file named sortitoutsi_megapack.7z without any numbers in the tail then that’s the one you should extract. If you don’t have such a file then I suggest trying to rename that file with 001 to sortitoutsi_megapack.7z and then trying to extract again.

  • charlie

    ok ive renamed and it failed again

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I think that you should try do download that first part again, the download might be incomplete or the file might be corrupted. I tested the Filefront download again and that first part appears as sortitoutsi_megapack.7z after downloading. And it does extract just fine on my PC.

  • http://allthatisfootballmanager.com Sears

    Hey Johnny,
    do you have to create the folder called ”sortitoutsi” or is there once you’ve all the files downloaded? And how did it take you just half an hour to download all> Did you download at the same time?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I downloaded them all at the same time, yes. The “faces” folder is inside a folder called “sortitoutsi” after extracting, at least that’s what happened with the Filefront download. Off to bed now, see you tomorrow.

  • http://allthatisfootballmanager.com Sears

    Thanks. I don’t understand it though and I don’t have enough time right now to download them all so I might try again tomorrow. Thanks again.

  • charlie

    i downloaded it again and the same thing happend

    • dami

      try using another program to extract it such as winrar or freearc…they are also free to download…just google it…

      • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

        Izarc is another good free option. However, 7-zip should have handled that file since it was created with this program.

  • Terbo

    Hello. I bought the game on steam, and i did’nt get this to work. should the folder called graphics just be placed in the fm2011 folder, or in data?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I mentioned that in the post, the folder should be in My Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011>graphics

      • Terbo

        okey.. I’ll try it when i come home ;)

  • joeyodonnell

    hey, i couldnt download the config file. on fileserve it just wouldnt open while i easily dl’d the others. i went and did the rest of the steps and it didnt work. is the config document necessary? also i have it set up like this fm 2011- graphics- megapacks – sortitou.. – faces. is that fine or does it need to be graphics – faces?

    thank you for your help! great download

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The config file is essential, it can’t work without it. As for the folders, I guess it could work the way you have it but you have to have the config file placed in the same folder as the picture files.

  • Tommy

    maybe its irrelevant question, but I cant download it..where do I have to click? I clicked on the big “Download Gigantic Football Manager 2011 Facepack” and nothing happened..
    Thanks for answer and sorry for my disturbing.

  • Tommy

    thank you

  • Robs

    Yeah I’m having the same problem as Charlie, I’m using 7zip and it allows me to extract the original file to a new location (sports interactive>sortitoutsi [note: I created this file it was not there when I extracted the file]) I was then about to extract that file to the faces file in docs>SI>FM11>graphics>faces But it comes up with the message saying “the archive is either in an unknown format or us damaged”

    Help?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Well, if you extracted the file then you should just copy the “faces” folder into docs>SI>FM11>graphics. If you have extracted the archive you should have a “faces” folder inside the “sortitoutsi” folder.

  • Rob

    ive downloaded 3 of them and placed them into the wrong file but it wont let me delete them any help ?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I guess the system marks the files as “in use” and that’s why it won’t let you delete them. Try to restart your PC and then delete the files.

      • Rob

        yeah it worked thanks

  • 9gel

    Hi there…can download the files from diferent sites?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I don’t understand your question.

      • 9gel

        if i can download the parts from diferent sites…

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          No, you have to download all the parts from one site, you can’t mix them.

  • Ryan

    Hey Johnny, was just wondering where you downloaded the badges from that are shown in your screen shots?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I have those from FM 2010, I will publish a post about that very soon, hopefully tomorrow or on Friday.

      • Ryan

        Ok cool – much appreciated.

  • av

    I had the same problems as above after downloading the files.

    I think the problem is with the link to 7-Zip, I could not download the file at all. I googled 7-Zip, downloaded it from their site and then installed it. I can now unzip the files as mentioned above.

    Its working now so hopefully works for you

    • av

      unzip/extract to…

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The link placed in the post IS to the 7-zip official website. That’s where I downloaded it from and it worked just fine.

      • Dezarinn

        I was try last night and megapack 2.0…It works on FM 2011…Today i will try to get some files from megapack 2 to megapack 3…Then we shall see does it work

  • Carlos

    This pack contains portuguese league?? With Hulk, and other players of Portugal??
    help

  • Michael K

    Does this work for Mac? Ive downloaded the 7 pieces from Filefront

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      It should work for Mac too but I don’t know which program you should use for extracting archives. I’m not familiar with MAC OS so I can’t really help you with that.

  • David

    Morning!

    I have downloaded all files and sored into one folder.
    I didn’t have the ‘graphics’ folder so i created one and placed the ‘faces’ folder in there.
    I dont seem to have the config file thing which i understand (from above) is essential! Can you please tell me where this is located or how it can be created, is it an easy process??
    Any help is greatly appreciated, if I can download it from somewhere that would be great?? I thought it would have been in the original dowwnloads but I just cant find it!

    Thanks again and best regards
    David

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      David, where did you download the files from? The config file should be in there but if you can tell me which links you have used for the download then I might be able to help you.

  • Dave

    Hi Johnny,

    Thanks for coming back to me. I used the link you posted further up – http://www.sortitoutsi.net/forum/topic/47747-download-megapack-3-0/

    I downloaded from the first 2 hosts that are in there – mainly file factory but one or two from easyshare.

    They all downloaded fine (sortitoutsi files-faces and readme) and I merged all the ‘faces’ files into one folder named ‘faces’ but there doesn’t seem to be the configs??

    As I didn’t have the ‘graphics’ folder I simply added new folder and named it graphics. I put it in My docs – Sports interactive – Football manager 2011 – ‘Graphics’ – ‘Faces’

    Any ideas??

    Thanks again for your help

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Dave, you should have downloaded all the parts from the same host… Anyway, as far as I know the file factory batch has one link from where you can download just the config file. Download it and place it in the “faces” folder.

      • Dave

        Awesome, what a wally I was to miss that! Thanks for your help and lets hope it works!!!

        I sent you an email, would it be possible tosend that screen shot just so I’m 100% right??

        Massive thanks, I owe you a beer!

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          No problem mate. I would prefer a coffee though, I rarely drink alcohol :)

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          I don’t quite understand which screen shot you’re talking about though.

          • Dave

            Coffee it is, if you ever visit harrogate!

            Re screen shot just where exactly the graphics folder is…….as I didn’t have one and had to create it I want to make sure I have created in the right place!

            Thanks again and cant wait to get this going…..a superb addition to the game!

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            OK Dave, I’ve just emailed you the screen shot.

  • Paul Mihai

    I have a question for you Johnny Karp if we started the game and I already played two seasons after installing this pack can continue or must start from the beginning… Thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      No, you don’t have to start from the beginning.

  • Danny

    hi
    im have problems downloading the facepark ?? any help its say use 7-zip but i click on one of the many files and nothing happening if u can email me would be great as i really want the facepack so it look more really to go with this great game

    Thankyou
    Danny

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Have you downloaded all the pieces yet?

  • Mariano

    I just finished downloading the game via sr¡team(14 HRS), my Indonesian connection is very bad.

    So no way i will be able to download the facepack that way, also because powercuts are quite often here…….

    Is there any torrent for me to dowload the face pack?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’m sorry Mariano, there is no torrent download available at the moment.

  • Bumbuliuz

    Amazing stuff, I just installed it and it looks great.

  • Scotty

    Hi Johnny, this is an incredible download – it’ll absolutely take a full day for me to download.

    Just to clarify, in the graphics folder, there should be one folder called faces containing the faces and config file?

    Cheers, Scotty

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      That’s right Scotty, a “faces” folder with all the pictures plus the config file. And the “faces” folder goes inside “graphics”.

      • Scotty

        Good man, I thought so. I’m not surprised you have your head in your hands in your pic!!!!

        I’m almost there I think, just need to move them to ‘graphics’.

        Thanks

        • Scotty

          Hi Johnny, do I have a problem if I have a ‘sortitoutsi’ and ‘faces’ folder for each extraction?

          I’ll still have all files in the ‘graphics’ folder under ‘faces’ though.

          Let me know.

          Scotty

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            No, that’s not a problem Scotty. Just copy the “faces” folder from “sortitoutsi” to the “graphics” folder and it should all be fine.

  • Luke

    Hi Johnny, do you have to download file factory, easy share, deposit file etc? or is it a specific one? Cheers Luke

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can choose any of those as long as you don’t mix the files from the different hosts. I chose to download them all from FileFront.

      • Luke

        Cheers Johnny, i have downloaded, and its brilliant. have all the faces i need, however is there a download for club badges? cheers luke

  • Dom

    Hi guys

    Just downloaded the packs and they work fine.

    However i’m missing the pictures for Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano

    Could anybody send me to domo1002000@yahoo.com the images for these two players or let me know which of the download packs they are in ?

    Cheers

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Tevez should be picture 950298 while Mascherano should be 951028. Both show just fine in my game so I think that if you’re missing these two you might be short of much more pictures than these two.

      • Dom

        Thanks for the links mate – i’ll go and have a look now

        I have every other premier league player showing apart from Tevez for some reason

        Same with Mascherano every other player in la liga is fine other than him

        Maybe my computer just doesnt like ugly argentinians that used to play for West Ham ! very weird hahaha

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Haha, that’s really strange. Look in the folder for those two files and see if they’re there. If they are then there might be a problem in the config file.

          • Dom

            sorted it out mate thanks – seems the final patch had been installed but wasnt working properly as when I checked again Zabeleta was missing from Man city

            so it must have been a problem with the argentinians in the final download part 8

            great stuff though much better having the players faces up

  • siskin

    where I can find huge logopack? Thanks in advance

  • andreas athanasopoulos

    hello, firsts of all i would like to thank you for the amazing job you have done.
    i also want to make you 2 questions about the instalation.
    1)why the national team logos doesn’t appear no where in the game and also the portugal team logos?
    2)why when i install this pack ,at the tackiks screen doesn’t appear on the pitch the players kits nad only the name?
    please if you can help it would be very useful for me.thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      1) this pack has nothing to do with logos.
      2) installing this facepack shouldn’t alter your tactics screen display so you either installed it in the wrong place or you deleted some other files in the process.

      • andreas athanasopoulos

        no i am talking about the logo pack your site has(metalic logos) the facepack has’t been downloaded yet.. do you know anything about the logopack? about the problems i told you above?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          I couldn’t have known you were talking about the logo pack, could I?

          • andreas athanasopoulos

            yes my fault.. sorry.. now about my problems at the logo pack..do you have any idea what is wrong???

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            I will answer in the appropriate thread, thanks.

  • dudley price

    Hi Johnny – I’ve followed the guidelines exactly as you’ve stated above, but it simply loads NO photos whatsoever. Config file is in the foler named ‘faces’, which in turn is located in the ‘graphics’ folder which I created. Downloaded all 8 files one after the other, so no problems there either. Any ideas?
    cheers

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Did you make the adjustments in the game preferences?

  • Werner

    I tried to download them all but since i have downloaded pack 5 by easydownload, sortitoutsi blocked the other ones, how can i avoid it?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I guess you meant EasyShare. Those files seem to be blocked indeed but there’s nothing I can do about it, I’m sorry. I would suggest downloading the whole bunch from FileFront, it worked very well for me.

  • Arathorn

    Hello, I used filefront to download the facepack, all but number 3 on filefront doesnt work, can you uppload number 3 on another site?

  • Arathorn

    I mean all but 3 does work, The number 3 doesnt work, sorry for my english ^^

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’m sorry but Sortitoutsi are in charge of the download links, I can’t just take their work and upload it somewhere else. So please ask them to fix the problem.

  • Laxeyman

    Hi Johnny, it’s still not working for me. I’ve got all 8 parts plus the config file in a folder called “faces”, which is inside the graphics folder. I’ve unticked the skin cache and everything, but it doesn’t work. Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I hope that you have extracted those pieces in the faces folder, you should have pictures in there and not the eight pieces. Are you using the default skin?

      • Laxeyman

        Yeah I’m using the default skin, as I can’t get the skins to work either. I think what you said is the problem, I’m just moving them all into 1 folder now.

        • Laxeyman

          It’s working and looks great, thanks for all your help Johnny :)

  • Geleno

    I have the same problem! :S
    Please help somebody!

  • Ravin

        Sorry, I can’t replace the download links because Sortitoutsi handles the download mirrors, you can ask them. I’m sure they will replace it even without being asked though :)

  • Bobby Cutting

    HI, do you know what pack contains the premiership face pack?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Nope, you have to download the whole thing. I’m sure that you’ll find a face pack just for the Premiership at Sortitoutsi though.

  • VAGGELISEVAGGELIS

    THE OTHER SITE DON’T DOWNLOAD ME THE FACEPACKS…WHY?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Caps off please and try to make sense: which other site?

      • VAGGELISEVAGGELIS

        aaa ok i make it……bb

  • pasar2k

    Use JDownloader.. and copy all the links from Deposit File.. JDownloader picks them up and downloads them all.

  • Dan

    I installed and extracted the pack and created a ‘faces’ folder within the ‘graphics’ folder. Then I reloaded the skin in the preferences but their not working. Any ideas?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Check if your “faces” folder has +72,000 pictures in it plus a config file. Then make sure you have made the necessary changes in the game preferences.

  • JC

    i have downloaded the mega pack, put all the faces in one individual folder within sports interactive – football manager 2011 – graphics – player faces, un-ticked skin cache and ticked always reload skin on confirm, however the faces still wont show up on the game!!! i’ve been playing football manager for years and normally adding player faces is a routine procedure!! really don’t have a clue why the faces are not showing up!! help please!!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you have done this for past FM games then you should know how it works. From what you are saying you did everything right but please check the “faces” folder again to see if you have the pictures in there along with the config file. Then you can also check whether you’re using a custom data folder and not the “MyDocuments>SI>FM” one.

      • JC

        there is no config file in there, i arranged all the 72,000 plus faces in number order, and i don’t think theres a config file in there. would the config file actually make the difference? and is there anywhere i can get it from? thanks

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          The config file makes the difference between “working” and “not working” :). Which site have you downloaded the pack from?

          • JC

            oh…
            http://sortitoutsi.net/forum/topic/47747-download-megapack-3-0/
            i downloaded off that link, from the fileserve links at the bottom of the page

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            You probably missed downloading the config file, http://www.fileserve.com/file/z3dgxw6
            After downloading just copy it into the “faces” folder and things should look shiny and bright :)

          • JC

            ohhhh yeah i must have missed it at the bottom. Gonna give it a go now… Cheers for the help!

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            No problem, I hope it works now. And a quick statistical note, your last comment was the 9,000th comment ever published on this website :)

          • JC

            yeah it works, thanks for the help!! ill be happy to take some of the credit there then… lol cheers!

  • joao PT

    Part_2 doesnt work!!!!!!!
    HELP PLEASE

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      What does “doesn’t work” mean? You can’t download it? If so, from which mirror? I can’t help you unless I know what’s going wrong.

      • joao PT

        it apears to be corrupted… i cant extract it…

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          You have to click “extract” on part one, that should unpack all the other parts at once. That is if you are using 7-zip, I can’t guarantee for other programs.

  • Arathorn

    Hm, i tried to extract those files, it came a popup “Cant open file”

    Any ideas?

    I tried also use 7-zip fix, and it says those file are incomplete…

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to use 7-zip and click extract on the first file of the pack, that’s how it works.

      • Arathorn

        that is exactly what i did. :S

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Then the download might be incomplete or one of the files is corrupted. I guess there’s no other solution than downloading again, sorry :(

          • Arathorn

            oh geez… thanks for the help :)

  • jw_trueblue

    hi mate, is there any torrent download for this ? thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Unfortunately there isn’t.

  • woody

    Hi i copied the files to jdownloader and its saying the files are out of date what do i do is the facepack still available

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      It is still available but some of the links are not working anymore.

      • woody

        do you have the working links if so can u send them to me please ?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Only the Deposit Files links are working at the moment.

  • Jason

    Hello Johnny,

    First of all thanks for this site.

    I downloaded all 8 parts. Do i have to extract ( 7 Zip) the faces folder from all 8 parts and combine the picture files into 1 folder?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to click “extract” just on the first part, that should unpack the whole thing to one folder.

  • Mike

    hi johnny, i downloaded all 8 parts from Easy Share and i only got 62,319 faces, not 72,000+ what can i do?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Which program have you used for extraction? If it wasn’t 7-zip then I suggest trying to unpack the archive again using 7-zip.

  • OrionDelgado

    Can i move the folder with the “Faces” and the folder with the “flags/logos” … etc to another destination other than “My Documents” ? i mean i don’t want to put it on my C:/ drive , specially with all this space it takes …
    =-=
    thanks in advance

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can move them to another folder but you will have to set up that folder as your “data folder” in the game preferences.

  • Sergio

    Hey guys when downloading this face pack must i download all the parts or can i just download 2 or 3 parts of the mega face pack?il be downloading it at the university so i cnt wait that long for all of it to download.

  • Sergio

    I do have the option of downloading this face pack for free right?coz i dnt wana go premium

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can download for free but you have to download all the parts.

  • Sergio

    Damn! So il have to spent many hours there. Where can i get the club logos of the english prem and otha leagues that dnt have logos?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I noticed that you have found the logos :)

  • Sergio

    Yeah i have im gna download the logos and megafacepack hope all goes well

  • sergio

    hey johnny i downloaded a face pack for a.c milan that i found at fmscout becoz i cant download the large 70000+ facepack now but if i download it at a later stage will i be able to over write the milan face pack with the mega face pack or will i have to remove it first before adding the mega face pack?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’d suggest removing any other facepacks when installing the megapack, you’ll just be wasting disk space.

  • sergio

    oh and i would like to register to this site is it free to join?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      This site here? It’s absolutely free.

  • Sayam Khan

    Hey Johnny, each part has a faces folder, right? So you have to extract each of them into a temprary folder. then after you have done, there should be 8 of them (8 parts) in the temprary folder. Then what do you do?

    Can you explain step by step, it’s quiet confusing, thanks.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      No, you just have to click extract on the first part, that will unpack the whole thing. And please use 7zip for extracting.

  • Dude

    I downloaded the thing, but can’t extract it with 7zip. The files end on .001 and so on, which is quite awkward. I tried to extract but it say’s ‘…. can’t be opened as an archive.’ I tried about everything and can’t figure it out.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The first part should have no numbers at the tail, are you sure you have completed the download? Anyway, you should click extract on the first part of the bunch, the first file.

      • Dude

        I musn’t have been paying attention, I had downloaded all the files, but apperently one of the files was only 240kb instead of 500mb. Something must have gone wrong during the downloading process and I hadn’t noticed. I’ve been trying all sorts of things for 2 hours, I guess it’s the price I have to pay for my own stupidity. But it was worth it, thanks

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          All is well that ends well… :)

  • sergio

    hey johnny will it be a problem if i download the megaface pack from filefront if a already have the logospack downloaded through fileserve?because they say you must not mix download mirrors.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can download the faces from one source and the logos from another, that’s not a problem.

  • sergio

    where is the link to the configure folder of filefront?does it need a configure folder

  • sergio

    where is the link to the configure folder for filefront?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The configure file is included in the archive, there’s no separate link for it.

  • sergio

    is this file name from filefront correct sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.001?shouldnt there be .zip at the end?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      No, it should be sortitoutsi_megapack.7z

      • sergio

        now how do i correct it?filefront is the only download mirror that works all the other download mirrors are offline

  • sergio

    all of the parts from file front end in .001 .002 etc. the files are like that at fmscout aswell.so what do i do to fix it?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The files from 002, 003 and so on are correct, they should display the number. The first file shouldn’t so I suggest trying to download just that first part again. Just to check, what’s the size of the 001 file? It should be 500 MB.

  • sergio

    well after i downloaded the first part i checked its size 500mb.i will download part 1 again as you suggested

  • sergio

    part one’s size is 500mb i checked it now after i finished downloading it,but il download it again now.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Well, did you try extracting it with 7zip?

  • sergio

    no im downloading at my university so ill only be able to do that at home.i have just finished downloading part 1 for the second time and its size is still 500mb so il just download part 5,6 and 7 then i will check it out at home because i cant install 7zip here at varsity

  • sergio

    cant i just download these parts simultaneously instead of downloading it 1 part at a time?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I downloaded them simultaneously so you can do that too. Again, you will have to have all the parts downloaded in your computer before trying to extract.

  • sergio

    yep

  • sergio

    uhm i know this is not the place to ask this but where do i go to if i want to share my story and tip on managing clubs because im currently managing real madrid castilla and its kinda difficult?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      There are plenty of options: starting your own website (can be done for free at blogger.com or wordpress.com) or joining a website like this one or just posting your story in one of the many FM forums. You just have to pick the options that suits you.

  • http://dsasda Yongrui

    hey there , after a few hours , finally gotten my facepack. however my logos all became a blank white , including my own manager picture that i used for myself.does this mean i have to google and search for logopack now?! thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      When installing the facepack the manager picture is lost but there is a way to bring it back, I’ll guide you to it if needed. Now about the logos, that shouldn’t have happened. You might have deleted the logos that you had or something like that. You can find a logos pack in our download page: http://www.footballmanagerstory.com/download/

  • Dan

    I have downloaded and extracted into the relevant folder, Ticked the box in the prefrences menu and i have no pics.
    I double checked and there are 72000+ pics and a config file in the folder.
    Can anybody help me?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You seem to have done everything right Dan so I really don’t know how to help you. Check every step again and make sure that you have made it correctly and then you might also want to try with a different skin if you are using a custom one.

      • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

        Also make sure that you extracted the files to the right location, maybe you’re using a custom data folder instead of the MyDocuments one.

  • jebat

    hye johnny..
    i’m jebat from malaysia..
    i already downloaded this facepack from filefront..
    after finish it and extract it, there is no config file..
    how can i get it??
    thanks..

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The config file should be inside the “faces” folder. If it isn’t then I guess I could upload it somewhere and then give you the download link but I won’t be able to do that until later tonight.

      • jebat

        ok johnny..
        i will wait until u upload it..
        the faster the better..
        thanks again..

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Here it is, I hope it will work: http://www.mediafire.com/?q98ala8h8xcrswz

          • jebat

            thanks dude..
            after download it, just place it in face folder right??

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Yes, dude.

  • jebat

    why i have only 9000++ face??

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Because you probably didn’t use 7zip to extract the file, right?

      • jebat

        yes, u are right..
        it is already fixed!
        thanks dude for the help..
        this facepack is awesome!
        thanks a lots!

  • siskin

    I started downloading part 1 with the speed 16,4 KB/s but it says that it takes more than 8 hours to complete. Is it normal or I did something wrong? Could you advise me? Thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The download speed is quite low, the files are large and at that rate it could take more than 8 hours. You could try do download from different mirrors to see where you get the best speed (Megaupload or FileFront).

      • siskin

        thanks for your help Johnny. Another thing – I finished downloading part 2 but it said that 235 MB of 500 MB was able to download.Could you tell me what it means? Was it an error? Should I try to download part 2 again?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          I guess you should download that part again, check the file size as it should be 500MB.

  • Sergio

    Hey johnny my game keep crashing a few hours into play its happend since last tuesday when i downloaded the megafacepack and logo pack i even installed the new patch 11.1.1 i tried deleting settings foldr and few otha fixes but nothing has changed could it be the face pack or logo pack?are they meant solely for fm11 and the crash i get is ‘football manager 2011 11.1.1f158038 has stopped working’ can you please help me im doing really well with so’ton and dont need this distraction every 3hrs into game play and i never had this prob with demo so its not my laptop.thank u

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Who said anything about deleting a “settings” folder? I didn’t, I’m quite sure of that. You should contact SI Games support and tell them about that error message, I can’t help you with that. I’m almost sure that the crash isn’t related to the face pack or logo pack though.

  • redmanous

    I’m downloading the pack and I hope It will work. I just wanted to thank you for the good job. THANKS

  • AMP

    ive downloaded all the files and now i’ve got 7 individual files and the configure file… what do i do next??

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You just have to extract the archive file using 7zip, that’s already covered in the instructions.

  • Byll

    Hi! I´m a first time user in this site and i am amazed with all the “costumer support” you guys give to the people. Just want to leave my congratulations to you and your site.

    cheers thanks 4 the help. works perfectly

  • amornsak

    thanks

  • Silas

    Hey Johnny, I’ve done everything the instructions have told me to do. The config file is in there as well. But the player faces still aren’t showing up!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Sorry mate but I can’t really figure out what’s going wrong there. Please check the instructions again and make sure that you followed all of them and then you can also read through the other comments, maybe you’ll find some ideas in there. Just a guess though, do you have a custom data folder set in the game preferences?

      • Silas

        No mate my user data folder is the one in Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011.. Is that it?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Then I really don’t know what you say. If you placed the “faces” folder with all the pictures and the config file inside the correct folder and you also made the necessary changes in the game preferences the thing should work.

  • Silas

    Ah okay then mate. Thanks a lot for your brilliant service!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’m sorry that I couldn’t help you. Just a final check: are you using a custom skin? If yes, which one?

  • Glen

    Hi,

    I have tried whatever you have said… and still the pictures wouldn’t load… The config file is in place too…
    All the pictures are there…

    Have you got any ideas?

    Thanks..

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Are you using a custom data folder or a custom skin?

      • Glen

        What do you mean by custom data folder?

        I am not using a custom skin…

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          That means whether you have set another user data folder in the game preferences, the default one is in Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011

  • Alexander

    Mate, i must be a complete retard, ive downloaded the whole facepack, got 7 files. i try to extract them but nothing really seems to happen? Ive got the 7zip but it never turns into actual pictures, neither the 72,000 files or the config. So, i must be doing something compleeeetely wrong here. Please help.

    • Alexander

      they just stay in the same format, so when i try to extract, it turns into a winrar, and then i extract that into a completely different file, and it turns into its orignial form!=

  • Alexander

    mate when i try to extract it keeps on becoming its original file so i end up with 2 of the same file!? it doesnt become fotos ?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you have the seven pieces then just right click on the file named “sortitoutsi_megapack.7z”, select 7-zip>extract here and everything should be fine. By the way, you don’t need to post the same thing over and over again.

      • Alexander

        When i do that, it instantly says there has been an unspeciefied error. and wont let me?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Again, on which file are you clicking? It should be “sortitoutsi_megapack.7z”

  • Alexander

    i do have the files, and i am clicking the “sortitoutsi_megapack.7z”, just dont get it, tried everything /:

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I am sorry. If you do what I told you to the files should extract just fine. Otherwise the files might have not downloaded correctly but I don’t think that is the case. I might suggest making sure that you have enough free disk space before trying to extract.

  • eren

    thanks

  • redline7

    can u upload again the config file for this pack. thanks in advance

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      From which mirror did you download the files? The config file that I have will not work for you if you downloaded from a different mirror.

      • redline7

        from filefront.. it doesnt have config right? owh,i think thats why my facepack didnt work bcause i download the config file from other mirror and replace it.. can u give the original config.. thanks

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          The filefront package has the config file already included, it’s not a separate download. You should have it in the “faces” folder, have a look.

  • jebat

    hello again..
    i want to ask u my friend..
    why i cannot play this game anymore??
    everytime i click at fm icon.. nothing happen..
    please help me..
    i am very dissapointed with it..

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      How do you run your game, is it through Steam or on DVD? Did the problem appear after installing the latest patch?

    i do not installing the latest patch..
    i feel my world is empty wihout fm!!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      It is quite strange and I can’t believe that the game stopped working just like that. You can try to re-install it from the DVD, have you tried that?

      • jebat

        the installation fail due to this thing..
        i found it after install the game inside the folder..

  • Mariano

    Hi Johnny,

    I downloaded the 7 files from Megaupload, changed the names required at sortitoutsi, download 7zip but when i try to extract the files it doesn´t extract them.

    Could you help me please?

    Chers

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Those instructions say something about using Total Commander, did you do that?

      • Mariano

        Yes, after downloading i combined them with Total Commander, and i got a Zip filr called sortitoutsi_megapack , but now i can´t extract the files from this Zip file(sortitoutsi_megapack) , neuther with winrar nor 7 zip file manager…

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          What does the error message say?

          • Mariano

            In one box says “no archives found”, in the other “the archive is either in unknown format or damage”.

            What seems strange is that before combining the files with total commander, archive number 4 is a winrar archive while the oder 6 don´t…..

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            I can’t really tell what’s going wrong there. I downloaded the pack using the FileFront links, much less hassle and it worked right away.

  • Mariano

    GGRRRR……

    I have Vietnamese connection and take ages:)

    I tried with file front but it´s broken, whrn i click download…….403 – Forbidden

    Any idea how can i get the facepack?

    Thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Hmm, then it seems that you have to sort out the one you have downloaded. Did you try to extract directly with 7-zip without going through Total Commander?

  • Mariano

    Yes, and it gives 7 errors-cannot open files…….

    I also tried Object fix but doesn´t work too….

    I´m curious why the people who make the facepack don´t sell it via a web site using pay pal or steam?

    Seems it´s very difficult like this.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      From what you say I can guess that either you have deleted those files or maybe you have changed the “user data folder” in the game preferences. Did they disappear just like that, out of the blue?

  • Matt

    Tried changing the user data folder and no difference. Must have deleted the files but thought had replaced all. Any advice on how can get back?

      Matt, the data folder that you have set in the game should have the faces and other graphics inside it. Please check and make sure that they are there.

      I love Galatasaray as well, because of Hagi :)

  • Cj

    Hey everyone, how you guys doing..
    I just have a little question over here umm, does the facepack include faces of some Ukrainian clubs like Dynamo Kyiv and others as well… if nobody knows, it would be really great if someone just checked if they have some time. Thank you.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The most important players are surely included, at least those from Dinamo Lyiv and Shakhtar are but there are several from other teams as well.

      • Cj

        OK awesome.Thank you very much.

        • Cj

          I got another problem over here… I don’t know maybe I did something wrong but I’ll post my problem on sourtitoutsi.net later on. When I am trying to extract the file it sais : “Unspecified error”. Any ideas or any advices from you dear people. Thank you…

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            From which site did you download?

  • Cj

    Umm from File Front

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      That’s where I downloaded mine from as well and it worked just fine. Have you finished downloading all seven parts? If yes, did you try to extract with 7-zip or with another program?

      • Cj

        Yup, I’ve download all the parts and used 7 – zip as well… Also for some files it just says Cannot open it… Well probably something heppen during the downloading time or there is no other choice i guess. All parts are there and 7 – zip is working… I have no idea what is up. Anyways the logo pack worked perfectly unlikely this one.

        • Cj

          OK nevermind.. . I actually tried to download all the files once again but it didn’t work once again. Then it just took me hlf an hour to download fm 11 with logo pack and face mega pack to my laptop and evrything worked perfectly. Thank you for your help Johny

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Well, I’m happy that it worked out somehow.

  • Lowey93

    iv downloaded the files from filefront and i dont know what to do when it says open with/save file. i have both 7zip and winrar on my computer so do i save the files then use these two programs or open the files with either 7zip or winrar???

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to download (save) all the files first and then extract with 7-zip.

      • Lowey93

        hi again. i saved the files but when i go to extract with 7-zip it immediately says unspecified error and also the files have logos like the win rar one but also wont extract using that. help please because it doesnt feel right playing fm without all the logos, badges and such

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Please tell me from which mirror you downloaded and also make sure that you are trying to extract only the first file in the bunch with 7-zip.

          • Lowey93

            mirror? dont know what that is.
            i downloaded from filefront then saved the file.
            opened it up then went to extract the first, then second and so on with 7 zip and it continued to say unspecified error for all of them

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            You should have seven pieces after downloading. My advice is as follows: right click on the first piece and then select 7-zip > extract. If that doesn’t work then the files might not have downloaded correctly.

          • Lowey93

            saved the first file but now it has the 7zip logo. iv right clicked it gone to extract it to the graphics file, a temprorary folder and also when it just says extract here but on both it says unspecified error.
            getting a bit stuck now :/

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            I’m having some trouble in understanding exactly what you are saying. Anyway, just to make sure: you have to have all the seven pieces before trying to extract.

  • Nebur

    I put the facepack in Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\date\graphics\facepack and the feces work but alll tatics and logos in game are off…
    If I put the facepack in Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\facepack all the logos and tactics oictures came back!!

    Anyone can help me??? I can´t fix the problem…

    I load the skin

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to put the facepack in My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\, my suspicion is that you might have put it in the Program Files folder.

  • iamzero

    I followed all the instructions above but nothing happened..

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Sorry about that, it worked for most people.

  • Derrick

    hi johnny..do u have a torrent link for this facepack?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Sorry, I don’t. The guys at Sortitoutsi, those who made the facepack, specifically asked people not to make a torrent available.

  • kp

    so good

  • pr

    Hi there,
    I’ve downloaded the files from filefront, thats fine but when I go to extract them it won’t let me, an error message appears saying ‘parameter is incorrct’. What does that mean? can you help?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I recommend using 7-zip to extract and doing it like this: right click on the first of the seven pieces and then select 7-zip>Extract.

      • pr

        I’ve tried using 7-zip but then the error message appears

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          I am sorry but I have no other solution other than what I previously said. Your files might not have downloaded properly or you are doing something wrong. By the way, did you finish downloading all the seven pieces before trying to extract?

          • pr

            Yeah I did that

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Then I can see no other reason than the file being corrupted, I can’t suggest anything else than re-downloading, maybe from another source.

    what type of file is the packs when you download them?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The downloaded files are pieces of a rar archive.

  • Liam Ross

    I think this may have went horribly wrong. I have my 7 different files in the ‘faces’ folder under graphics and when i go into my game there is no image at all in any of the players profiles. Not even the black shadow appears. I have went into preferences and followed the intructions but i am in need of some help!!

    • Liam Ross

      Just noticed that all the logos appear to be missing now, please help?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you would have followed the instructions you would have noticed that you have to extract the files to the faces folder, not just copy them in there.

      • Liam Ross

        I’ve got the facepacks in the game but all the original logos, flags etc are all missing?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          You might have deleted something in the process or maybe you installed the facepack in the wrong place.

          • Liam Ross

            Finally got it working! thanks for your help Johnny.

  • Bigdaddy

    Hi I’m playing FM2011 on a mac, and when I go to the game there is no ‘graphics’ file there for me to copy the folder into, is it different for a mac?

    • Bigdaddy

      actually dont worry, saw your note to just create a graphics file and it all works perfectly!

  • Jordan

    Hey, can you show me how to do this on a mac as I have followed the instructions but the player pack hasn’t done anything.
    Thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’m not a Mac user so I can’t give you any advice on that, sorry.

  • http://fmcrazy.fmcrowd.com FMCrazy

    Hi, I have done everything that it has stated, the 7 files are in the graphics folder and it is not working. When I downloaded them they were not zipped files, is that wrong? I downloaded them from Filefront.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The downloaded files should be archive files, rar files if I remember correctly. Secondly, I never said that you should put the seven files in the graphics folder, did I? The files should be extracted to the graphics folder.

      • http://fmcrazy.fmcrowd.com FMCrazy

        I cannot extract them if they cannot be extracted. I just pressed download and those are the files that came up. “sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.001″ is the first file that came up, I am unable to do anything to it since it is just a file, no extracting or anything else can be done, do you have any idea why? They are not archive when I download them, single files. Sorry if I sound a bit daft or have an easily solvable problem, I have never used a facepack but I want to now.

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Have you also followed that part that says “use a program called 7-zip for extraction”? Install 7-zip and then click extract on the sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.001 file, that will unpack the archive.

          • http://fmcrazy.fmcrowd.com FMCrazy

            I tried that but it didn’t work, it came up with an unspecified error.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Hm, then the files might not have downloaded correctly. Alternatively you could try to rename the sortitoutsi_megapack.7z.001 to sortitoutsi_megapack.7z and then try to extract again.

  • Adrian

    Hi, I need help. Everything you wrote – it’s done, but I still don’t have photos in my game. I have original DVD, polish version. Pictures – extracted to folder “faces” and copied to “graphics” folder, tick “reload skin”, un-tick “bufforing”… I really don’t understand…

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Where is your “graphics” folder located? You can also check if your “faces” folder has all the pictures in it plus the config file.

  • Adrian

    Hi, again. The path is: My documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics. But the config file in “faces” folder is missing. What should I do? Download everything again from other mirror? Thank you for your help!

  • Vaibhav C.

    Hey Johnny,
    I downloaded the 3.3 update from File Share, but not all of the photos came. I am missing around 4,000 photos. I downloaded all parts.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Some might have not been extracted, which program did you use to unpack the archive?

      • Vaibhav C.

        I used WinRar

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Try again using 7-zip, that should do the trick.

          • Vaibhav C.

            It says that my part 4 is corrupt, should I download it again?

  • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

    You have two options: download again or try to fix it with this free program: http://www.essentialdatatools.com/products/objectfixzip/?tag=web_products

    • Vaibhav C.

      I think I’ll just download it again, Thanks Johnny

  • Adrian

    Hi, again and again ;-) Your config file nothing changed. But I’ve downloaded 3.4 version and it’s almost correct… Almost. When I unpack the files (with 7-zip) I have errors in 7 and 8 part. I’ve downloaded again – and the same situation. It’s frustrating… Could help me?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can try the program that I have suggested earlier to Vaibhav to fix the archives.

  • Adrian

    Well, I’ve already done it. It looks like this program fixes the bugs, but it extracts file after that. I’ve tried copy these extracted files, but I’ve got information about: “You should remove write protection” (oryginally, it was in polish, so I don’t know that this translation is correct).

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      That;s a problem with your system, it can’t copy the files to the location that you want for some reason. I couldn’t possibly tell you exactly why but I would suggest re-starting your computer and then trying again.

      • Adrian

        It’s very strange… It looks like I have kind of cap on my “faces” folder. It couldn’t be bigger than 3,2 GB. After this border I always reach the information about removing write protection… Is it possible? Have you ever heard about something like that?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          That is strange indeed and I don’t know how to fix it. There is a solution however: you can set a custom data folder in the game preferences and then move all that you have in the Documents/SI/FM2011 folder into that custom folder that you set and use that one as your data folder from now on.

  • Milos Meireles

  • badharvz

    hi there, sorry to bother u johnny,iv downloaded the files, i know how to put faces in the game i have done it for years. however, because this is alot of files, do i make them into one file or put them in ‘faces’ as seperate files? thanks

  • george

    thnks guys

  • badharvz

    its ok i have done it now it works fine….

    here is EXACTLEY how i did it (hope it helps)

    download the files from sortitoutsi.net and save the files into your ”downloads folder”

    once downloaded, make another folder in your ”documents folder” , i named mine
    ”temp faces” and extract the files to that folder

    each file will now have a folder inside them called ”faces”, drag each ”faces folder” to your graphics folder which is in MyDocuments>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011>graphics

    the first ”faces folder” will drag in with no problems, but the 7 other folders will ask if you want to ”merge folders”, click yes, also if it tells you 2 files have the same name, click move and replace

    Then launch Football Manager 2011 and go to the preferences screen. Click on ‘Display and Sound’ and tick the check box on the page called ‘Always Reload Skin on Confirm’ and un-tick then box labeled ‘Use Skin Cache’. Press confirm and there should be a box popping out saying ‘loading image data for the new skin’. When that process is completed the new faces should show in your game.

    i had problems putting the faces in to my game then used the method above, and it worked

  • george

    thnks

  • workoutdude

    Johnny,
    Does the big facepack contain faces for Croatian first division?

    I’m interested as I’m currently managing NK Zagreb.

    Cheers
    Workoutdude…peace out.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I have just started a new game to check NK Zagreb and I can confirm that almost all the players in the first team squad have their faces in this pack. I also checked a few second division teams and there are some faces for those as well.

  • akis

    thanks

  • Vaibhav C.

    I have another problem. I extracted all of the files again, but it created a folder inside the faces folder, where the pictures should normally be. Everytime I select all the photos in the created photo, it stops responding. What can I do?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      That happened to me as well when I tried to install the facepack on an old computer. I would suggest closing any running programs before trying to select the files and copy them, that should leave more memory and CPU available.

  • Radu

    Hy… i have a save. if i install this patch , i can load the save with this patch on … or I need to start a new game ?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You don’t need to start a new game.

  • Frank

    it says i can’t extract is cuz it’s not a rar file? something like that. Help please.

  • Frank

    oh and sorry for double post, but can i use this on a mac? do i need 7-zip because it looks like its only for windows.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I think that it can work on a Mac but I can’t tell you which program to use because I have almost no experience at all with Macs, sorry.

      • Frank

        oh and it also says how the first pack isn’t a rar archive. So how do I extract that?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          It is a rar archive, the only difference is that it is split into seven smaller pieces. Again, I don’t know much about Macs but I did some research for you and found out that there are some modified 7zip versions for Mac OS, here’s one that you might want to try: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/19139/ez7z

          • Frank

            1. I’m really sorry for bothering you and all and i hope you’re not annoyed

            2. When i download the first link in FileFront, when I look at the downloads its a .rar icon, so i guess the first pack is a .rar icon.

            3. I used The Unarchiver to try and attempt to extract the .7z files. When I re downloaded all the 6 (not including the 1st download) have the Unarchiver logo on it when it’s downloading.

            Am i on the right track or do I have to make adjustments?
            And after the downloads are done what do I do?

            Oh and thank you so much again. :D

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Don’t worry Frank, I’m here to help so I’m not annoyed at all. The drill is like this: first download all the seven files and then try to extract, that’s how it’s supposed to work. In Windows you have to click “extract” only on the first file and that will unpack all seven pieces and I guess it should work the same on a Mac.

  • Dave C

    Hi there,

    I am having big probs too. I can extract all the pictures but when I put them in the folder Graphics-Faces I get nothing. I will show you what I get in my download and if someone can tell me step by step how to do this then I would be delighted. (The read me file is good but it doesn’t really give step by step details).

    Config.
    Megapack update 3.1
    read me
    sortitoutsi_megapack_part1
    sortitoutsi_megapack_part2
    sortitoutsi_megapack_part3

    sortitoutsi_megapack_part6
    sortitoutsi_megapack_part7
    sortitoutsi_megapack_part8

    All are zip files apart fro mthe read me. So, what do I do step by step. Please! Thanks.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Right click on sortitoutsi_megapack_part1 and select extract to a location of your choice (that should unpack all the eight parts). After extraction check that folder and move all the pictures to your graphics/faces folder. Then move the config file to that folder as well. Then make the necessary changes in the game preferences as instructed in the post and that’s that. If you want to install the 3.1 update as well you will have to extract that file somewhere and then move the extracted pictures and config file to your graphics/faces folder and overwrite any files if asked. I don’t think I can make it more “step by step” than this…

  • Deni D

    Hi! just downloaded the pack, extracted, but when i load the skin, only very few pictures came into the game! even though the folder size is 3.88 gb! for exampel blackburn rovers only two players have pictures “paul robinson and ryan nelson”! What do you think the problem could be?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Check your graphics/faces folder, you should have all the pictures in there plus a config file.

    Hi,

    I followed all the instructions right up to making a graphics folder and putting it the pictures in it. Now though I can’t go any further because the game doesn’t open at all! Every time I try to open it a message about the graphic system failing comes up and the standard Windows “This program is not responding” follows. Help please!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I don’t think that is related to the facepack unless you have placed that graphics folder in a totally wrong place. There might be a problem with your video card or DirectX version.

    downloaded all of these, followed all the instructions and it didnt work at all. all though what i did notice is that in the read me file it says ‘place the folders Megapack 3.0 and default into…’ there is no folder called ‘default’ and no one specific folder called ‘Megapack 3.0′ in the download.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      What folders do you have after extraction?

      • AlexB1878

        ‘faces’ is the only folder i have, i also have. and other than that i have a read me word document and a shortcut to there website. nothing else in there at all.

      I have my game through Steam as well and you should have such a folder in “My Documents” or “Documents” depending on your operating system.

    Hi Johnny,

    I have downloaded all 7 files to a temp folder and installed 7-zip, but when I right click on file 001 I have no option to open or extract with 7zip. Any ideas?

    Matt

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Try opening 7-zip and then open the archive from inside the program.

      • Al Muhalla Amarta

        i think you should merge it first using hj split, that will combine file .001,.002 etc then you can finish with 7zip

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          That can be an option but it can be extracted directly with 7-zip without merging.

  • kieran

    i download them all but when i try to download the 7th one it doesn’t work and doesn’t load any ideas on how to download it?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      From which mirror did you download? If the seventh part still doesn’t download then there’s no other chance than downloading all the parts from another mirror.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000370597093 Nigel Franciscus

    Hello Johnny, I try to download all the part from file front, but the first one (winrar) 500mb, it cant be opened (“this file damaged”). Can U help me? Thanks..

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000370597093 Nigel Franciscus

      and also it says unknown format.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to download all the parts before trying to extract. I recommend using 7-zip and not winrar.

  • Mario

    I loaded the game through STEAM. My C: Hard Drive is a SSD with less than 2GB available (I have my OS loaded here). I run everything from a 600GB D: drive (this is also where the game is loaded).

    The path under Doctuments/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011 is on this C: drive. Is there a way to move this to my D: drive and still have the game operate?

    By the way, I was able to find a Football Manager 2011 folder under the /steamapps that had the graphics folder already there.

    Thanks ahead for the help! I really hope I’m able to get this working.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Yes, there is a way: you can change the “user data” folder in the game preferences, then you will have to re-start the game.

  • Ryan

    I don’t understand how this works.

    I’ve downloaded the 7 sortitoutsi megapacks (most are 00 files, 1 is a 7z file) and they are currently sitting in my downloads folder. I have 7-zip installed but don’t understand what I need to do next. I’ve got 7-zip open and try to extract the first one but it says parameter is incorrect.

    Can we have a step-by-step instruction to install this as it’s very frustrating?

    Thanks,

    Ryan :)

    • Mario

      Make sure you’re highlighting the first file out of the seven (1 – 7). Use, 7-Zip and choose Extract. It will then extract those seven big files into one faces folder. All of the original seven files should be in the same folder, btw.

  • Greg Beards-Jones

    Hi mate, thanks for the download, I have done it all and it works fine :D I was wondering, can I delete the zip files after I have unzipped them? would just help me with disk space etc.

    Cheers x

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can safely delete the zip files now, no problem. I did that too to be honest, they do take a lot of disk space :)

  • KK

    Hi, I have did everything like what you told in your explanation but it doesn’t work. I have downloaded the 7 parts and then i downloaded the file to extract it as well and then after i extracted it, i copy the faces folder into the graphics folder after that in the preffences i alread tick the always reload and untick the skin cache. It did appear saying that loading new skin something like that however there is no faces yet in the game. Can you help me? thx alot

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Hi, you seem to have done everything right and it should work. Please check again that you have the following path to your “faces” folder: Document\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\faces. You can also have a look at what’s inside the “faces” folder, you should have lots of pictures in there plus a file named “config”. If everything is there then you must check your game preferences and make sure that you haven’t set a custom user data folder instead of the default \Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011 one.

  • Steven Guy

    Basically I have done all the steps but I dont have a config file in the faces pack so how will i get this file by itself? i have all the face pictures in the correct file location and all those steps aren’t working. Would appreciate help for this config file.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You might have missed the download link for the config file. Check again the links from the download mirror that you have chosen and I’m sure you’ll find a separate link for the config file in there. If you can’t find it just tell me which of the hosts you used for the download and I will try to supply the config file link.

      • Steven Guy

        I cant realy do that because my mate gave me the files from a memory stick so i dont know where he got them from…..

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          You will have to ask him, there’s no other way around that unfortunately. Or you can try downloading the config file from all the existing mirrors, copy them into the faces folder one by one and see which one is working.

  • nate

    ok

  • Alex

    hi, i know its not your fault or anything and i appreciate the fact that you have replied to almost EVERY comment which must get tiresome. but do you not think maybe there is a fault with the download or something considering how many people it hasnt worked for (including me)?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Well, there also are thousands of people (including me) who downloaded this and had no problems at all. So I guess there is nothing wrong with the download but things can get wrong along the way either because some people don’t follow the instructions or because of other reasons like corrupt downloaded files and so on.

  • Scott

    i’ve done everything as said in the instructions but as i’m trying to extract the files it says unspecified error and i dont know why, any help would be appreciated.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to click extract only on the first file of the seven, that will extract the whole bunch.

  • Jake

    Hey, I have downloaded the megapack and have just finished reading the readme file. It tells me to

    Place the Megapack 3.0 and default into the folder here: >My Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011>Graphics>Faces

    It seems simple enough, but I do not see a folder named ‘Graphics’ inside my ‘Football Manager 2011′ folder. I really need some help with this. Maybe it’s hidden or locked? I don’t knbiw what to do.

    Help!

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You can create that “graphics” folder yourself if it doesn’t exist. That info is given in the post too if I’m not mistaken.

      • Jake

        I ended up saving the downloaded file in the ‘Football Manager 2011′ folder itself which worked. I didn’t need to use a graphics folder.

        Thanks for the help! :-)

  • sakis

    from where can i download this pack ?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      There is a link in the post to sortitoutsi.net, that’s where you can download it from.

  • Lol

    Can i extract with winrar ?

    • Jake

      Yes, I extracted with Winrar and it worked fine.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I recommend 7-zip.

  • jamie

    ive just purchased a new computer and cant get faces to work (although previously could on old computer) , i have copied old files from hard drive striaght into graphics folder and it isnt working???

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Did you also make the necessary adjustments in the game preferences?

      • jamie

        yes, this is what’s confusing?!?!?!?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          It is confusing indeed. I don’t know what to say other than deleting the folder and trying to install again from the beginning while making sure you follow all the instructions. Maybe the config file is missing from the folder, just a thought…

          • jamie

            config file is there!! all my other graphics, ie.e adboards, logos, kts work fine it’s just the kits. I have tried deleting the game numerous times reinstalling etc, but to no avail. The new computer is running windows 7 is this the problem??

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Could be. But now I don’t understand what’s not working: the faces or the kits? Anyway, I can tell you that I have installed this facepack both on Windows XP and Windows 7 and it worked fine on both operating systems.

          • jamie

            sorry kits are fine, it it just the face pics, frustrating it is :(

      • jamie

        its got to be something to do with Windows 7 but i dont know what the hell it is? anyone got any ideas????

  • Ed

    Hi there,

    i got the facepack, followed all the instructions. The images appear on the game fine. However olf images of some well known people who were on the original pack like Messi, C ronaldo Lampard and the like do not have their images appearing on my game. Can you give me a solution.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Those players are included in the facepack so I think that the extraction might have been incomplete, please use 7-zip to extract the archive.

  • Juan Miguel

    Hey,

    I followed the instructions and everything seemed to work fine, all the new faces loaded to the game. However, I realized that all the other images (e.g. club logos, graphical representation of players on the tactics screen etc.) were gone. Any suggestions?

    • Juan Miguel

      Nevermind I got it all figured out. I created the graphics folder in the wrong place :$

      • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

        OK. ;)

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If those are gone then I guess you followed different instructions.

  • Julema

    I can’t extract it. I downloaded 7-Zip and when to open it it just says “Unspecified error”.

    I did all that you said. Any tips?

    Thanks

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Click extract only on the first file, that should unpack the whole chain.

  • Magnus

    Is the link broken? Tried it several times, but surtituotsi.net doesn’t open

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      The link isn’t broken but they seem to have some problems with the website today. Hopefully they will sort things out quickly.

      • Magnus

        Oh ok, thanks for the info :)

  • Andy

    Hi Johnny,

    I’ve downloaded 6 of the 8 files from here

    http://fmindonesia.com/Thread-Sortitoutsi-Cut-Out-Faces-Megapack-Version-3-7

    and used WinRar to extract them. So far, more than 60,000 PNG picture files but not a single config file – are they usually in the final download? Is there a general config file I could download from somewhere?

    Cheers,

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      You have to download all the parts, there is no such thing as a “general config file”. Or you can create that config file yourself but that would be a whole lot more complicated than downloading the two remaining parts.

      • Andy

        Just finished finished downloading the two remaining parts – 69,000 pics but no config file? Is that normal?!

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          No, you should have a config file. Maybe you missed the download link to that config file, it should be there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=760538652 Hemison Brown

    i have downloaded the files but the first file has an error and when i try to fix it with object fix zip then that has an error can you change it to win rar or something so it is easy to download because these are reqally good face packs :)

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I suggest using 7-zip for extraction and clicking “extract” only on the first file while having the other pieces in the same folder.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=760538652 Hemison Brown

        what folder should i put them because i got a folder called face pack in the graphics folder where i put the old face packs

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          You should delete the old folder and replace it with the new one.

  • Huzaifa Pandor

    Hey Johnny I understand what to do but i’m just clarifying it to you, Have all the 7 files downloaded and then i extract only the first file through 7-zip, after i have all my files put into a folder i then simply moved that one folder called faces into the graphics folder. Is that correct?

    • http://www.facebook.com/fmstory Johnny Karp

      Yes, that’s the way it should work.

      • Huzaifa Pandor

        I’ve just come across another webpage saying i have to extract all the files individually http://www.fmscout.com/i-1026-Cut-Out-Faces-Megapack-for-FM-2011.html …under description on how to install. :(

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          If you click extract on the first file it will unpack the whole chain archive.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=760538652 Hemison Brown

            where do you extract the first file to

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Just right click on it and select extract.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=760538652 Hemison Brown

            i ttry t but the first file has an error

  • http://www.facebook.com/fmstory Johnny Karp

    Then you should download the whole thing from another source, the file might be corrupted.

  • Calum Jenkins

    I downloaded a face pack, and unzipped it and had the folder that contained all the images of the players.

    then dragged the folder into the graphics folder on sports interactive/fm 2011. Do i have to take them all out indavidually??

    Thanks for the help

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      No, copying the folder is OK. Just make sure that you have the pictures and the config file inside that folder.

  • tigertiger

    To save me a lot of bother – will this work on a mac?

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Darren Smith

      Honest answer is I don’t know, Johnny who made this post might though and he should be back from his holiday shortly.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I haven’t tested it on a Mac but I think it should work.

      • tigertiger

        Thanks. I’ll give it a shot and post back for the benefit of other Mac ponces.

        • tigertiger

          It does work on Mac but make sure you do the following,

          download the files, extract them and place them in /Users//Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/graphics/faces, creating the last two folders if necessary.

          Would steer clear of Megaupload links. Nightmare to stick the files together with a Mac unless you run a virtual PC.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Thanks for sharing the info, it should be useful for other Mac users.

  • Jesus

    The guy that posted this has to say the same things over and over. If you can’t even download and install a Facepack, then please, play something easier like tetris.

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Calm down mate, some people are just not too good with computers. And since I don’t mind taking time to help them then I can’t understand why you would.

  • lee

    you download 11 by 1 an u just end up with loads of files within files

    • lee

      ex i meant 1 by 1 , an u end up with loads of files within files when u download the parts 1 by 1

  • lee

    i lost my faces because of the updates ended up having the whole lot wiped, im positive the 1st time i downloaded the megapack (although it was ayr ago) i was able to extract after downloading each part an they would be in the game

  • lee

    last time i had a megapack u never had to wait for all 7 parts ,u could use the faces after each part

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I’m sorry mate but I can’t quite understand what you are saying. Just download all the parts and then extract, that’s the way it works. There is a one file download available at Sortitoutsi but that is only for premium members (you have to pay).

  • lee

    sorry im just getting annoyed an not making sense,ive broke my leg so i just want to play this game but cant because not having the faces annoys me (wiped when applying the update) i almost positive when i 1st got the game i extracted facepack parts 1 by 1 an they worked fine,so basically im downloading a torrent but the files r rar,what do i do with them,your help would be much obliged

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I have already replied to your email, rar is an archive file and you should extract to the location mentioned in the post.

      • lee

        1st time i got the game i downloaded the facepack through fileserve or somewhere like that ,an even after downloading 1 part i was able to add it to the game an it worked fine,this time round not the case therefore its confused me as to what to do,so ive downloaded from a torrent site an the contents are parts 1-8 3.1 update an config,i dont want to risk messing around untill im sure of what to do as its a pain in the arse to get it all again so the contents are just in a downloads folder so if you could tell me how to proceed i would really appreciate it

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Good, so if you have all the pieces and the config file you are in the exact same situation that is described in the post: just extract the archive with 7-zip into any folder of your choice and then move the contents into your FM graphics folder along with the config file.

  • lee

    ok i hear what your saying but the files i downloaded are win rar zip archive its not clear which 1 i move first ,where,or how, im trying to do it now so if you can get back to me i can get this over with,an again thanks for your help

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      If you click extract only on the first of the 8 pieces that should unpack the whole 8 parts, I hope it’s clearer now.

      • lee

        thanks for your help but its not happening so ill just have to leave it

      • lee

        ive done it last didnt need 7zip or do half the stuff that was mentioned just extracted 1 by 1 straight from my dowload folder,anyways i appreciate your help though,1 thing i dowloaded my pack which included update 3.1 would it do any harm if i got the other updates elsewhere

        • lee

          sorry for the poor grammar i was watching the arsenal v man u highlights

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          If you download later updates you have to overwrite any duplicate files in your current folder, including the config file.

  • Sam

    Hi when i download the 3.0 megapack i dont get a config file with it so the images dont load up. I tried then to download the 3.9 changes pack and found a config file was included in this one but the only images that loaded up this time was the changed/updated ones from 3.9. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!! Ive tried everything!

  • Sam

    Why is there no config xml file in the orginal 3.0 pack???

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      Some of the uploads have separate download links for the config file, I guess you didn’t pay enough attention. Anyway, if you added the 3.9 update in the same folder as the original 3.0 by overwriting any duplicate pictures you should have all of them in your game. But make sure that ALL the pictures are in the same folder as the config file.

      • Sam

        well can you give me the link for just the 3.0 config file then?

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          You have to tell me from which mirror you downloaded, then I can try to look for the config file link.

          • lee

            i was applying the updates an ask to overwrite i said no ,im guessing they were asking me to overite ones i already ahd so i shouldnt make to much difference right?anyway ive got loads of players so ill stop with the updates dont think theyre needed, anyway i have no pics of the french or dutch national team players any ideas mr karp

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Wrong, when asked to overwrite you should have said yes because the updates have better pictures for some players than the existing ones and it’s also essential to overwrite the old config file with the new one. I have no idea why you don’t have the french and dutch player pics.

        • Sam

          Hi it was the 3.9 complete pack i downloaded using filefactory. The first 8 files are the combined 3.0 megapack and each file after that is the update (ie 3.1, 3.2….). When i extract the 3.0 megapack tho there is no config file there and thus the images do not load up.

          fmdownloads.com and then sortitoutsi.net/megapack/3-9_all.html

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            If the updates have config files then you don’t need the original one, just add the pictures and config file from the updates in the original folder and it should work because the update config files contain all the original information plus the new faces.

          • Sam

            well thats what i am saying. Ive added the pics and config file from the updates in the original folder but only the new faces load up in the game.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            That is strange because even if you have had the original config file it would have been overwritten when installing the update. How many pictures do you have in the graphics/faces folder at the moment?

          • Sam

            theres 11,000 files in there at the moment. Is that too small a number?

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            That is surely too small, only the update pictures are in there and that’s why only those are showing. The solution is simple though, just copy the images from 3.0 to the folder and things should be OK.

          • Sam

            yer its all working now thanks a lot for your help. Just me being an idiot i guess like most people who have commented on this page. Thanks! Just the new kits and logos to go now

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            No problem mate, I’m happy that you’ve sorted it out.

  • lee

    i shouldve explained it better mr karp i do have dutch an french players,its when you click on the national team theyre not there,but are with there clubs

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I don’t know what to do about that, sorry.

  • Shane James

    When I install this or a logos pack I lose my kit graphics. I am running a Steam download in Australia. Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

      I think that you are putting the faces or logos in the wrong place, please check the instructions again and make sure you are not placing the downloaded files in other locations than the ones specified in there.

      • Shane James

        Thanks for the prompt reply.

        What I have to do is create a folder “graphics” in the data folder. The problem starts that there is a loading icon (the mouse pointer) when I open the “select team to manage” menu. The other time I get a loading icon is if I open the editor and use it. If I go to a clubs kit screen there are no kit graphics loaded.

        I was starting to think it was a problem with buying the Steam version and the original graphics causing conflict.

        If you think it might be that, then bummer and then I will buy the hard copy of 2012 when it comes out.

        Thanks again for answering.

        • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

          Steam is not the problem, I have my game through Steam as well. The problem is that you seem to be creating the “graphics” folder in the wrong place, please read the instructions. The graphics folder should be in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011.

          • Shane James

            If I create it In the Football Manager folder it doesnt load the facepack at all. Just tried doing that because I saw the Data folder wasnt listed in your instructions.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            It should be in the folder mentioned in the instructions, if you put it in the data folder you risk doing damage to other features. I can only help you if you follow the instructions, if not we’d be both wasting time here.

          • Shane James

            Ok, I follow instructions. Go to prefrences and change the ticks around, game loads as normal but no change to faces at all. Like nothing has happened.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            Please check your folder in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/graphics and make sure that you have the faces pictures in there plus the config file. If you have all those it should work just fine.

          • Shane James

            Thanks heaps Johnny for your patience. You were right, I was in the Steam Apps folder and not the My Doc folder. Big Error on my part, but I think you knew that.

            Again thanks.

          • http://www.footballmanagerstory.com Johnny Karp

            No problem mate, glad we sorted it out. Enjoy the game!
