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.
