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.

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 :)

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?

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.

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?

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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.
