Download Mega Logos Pack for Football Manager 2012

FM 2012 Downloads

written by Johnny Karp


They wonderful guys at Sortitoutsi released a brand new Metallic Logos Pack for Football Manager 2012, it looks even better than the previous one if you ask me! This pack contains every single competition and club logo you can imagine as the file count stands at a staggering… 125,570 files! Let’s see how these look in the game, I’ve used my current FM 2012 save to make a few screen shots.

Competition Logos

Club Logos

I think those look great and if you agree then I guess you might want to download the goodies right now! Well, you will have to click the picture below but bear in mind that there are two options:

1. Become a premium user at Sortitoutsi for around 10 pounds per year and have access to a single-file, super-fast download.

2. Become a regular user at Sortitoutsi and download the file split into several archives or via torrent file.

It’s your choice, all I can say is that the first option is a lot better and that is the one that I have chosen for myself.

download

How to install

Once you download the archive file you will have to extract it to your game user data folder, the default one is like this: Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2012

If you have set a custom data folder for the game then you will have to extract the archive to that folder. For extraction I recommend the free program called 7-zip, it rarely fails.

Once the extraction is complete you should have a new “graphics” folder inside the Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2012 folder. That “graphics” folder should have a folder named “sortitoutsi.net” inside. In that “sortitoutsi.net” folder there should be a folder named “”metallic_logos” which should have a folder named “logos” and a config file inside. If that is the case then the extraction went according to plan and you have just one more step before seeing the great logos in your game.

That last step goes like this: start the game, go to preferences>display & sound and modify the two settings as in the screen shot below (deselect “use skin cache” and select “always reload skin on confirm”). Then click confirm and the skin should reload.

That should be all, if you have followed the steps the logos should be displayed in your game. I hope you’ll enjoy this fine piece of work from Sortitoutsi, I surely will! If you encounter any problems you can ask for help here, I’ll always try to give you a hand.

          Better than some, worse than many others :)

  • comment avatar Mark October 23, 2011

    I have signed up to sortitoutsi, but when I go to download the file it comes up with a page that says Not Extended, not sure what to do

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2011

      They might be experiencing some temporary server problems but I’m sure that they will sort them out quickly.

  • comment avatar Lye October 23, 2011

    Hi Johnny,

    Thanks a lot for sharing another great resource from Sortioutsi. These guys are really awesome enhancing the game even further. I actually have a try but their download link seems to have some problem. Don’t know do the others encounter the same?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2011

      Yes, there seems to be a problem but I’m sure they will solve it soon enough.

  • comment avatar Rob October 23, 2011

    This looks like the best logopack since one I used in FM10 – shame I can’t download it. Any idea what the problem is?

    Thanks for sharing anyhow.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2011

      Their whole website seems to be having some problems but I’m sure they will be solved soon, most probably by the end of the day.

  • comment avatar vaibhavc October 23, 2011

    How much is it, 623 mb?

  • comment avatar DK1247 October 23, 2011

    The site seems to be back up, I just can’t find the new logo pack.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 23, 2011

      Yeah, I can’t find it either. It seems that they still have to put all the pages up.

  • comment avatar Sears October 23, 2011

    It’s wonderful that you are giving all these downloads very quickly pal, thanks a bunch!

  • comment avatar David Smith October 24, 2011

    Anyone on here thats already got the pack thats willing to use some of that super fast UK broadband we hear about to upload the pack somewhere? Sortitout seem to be having a few more probs but with websites these things happen. Was even gonna try buying a self installing update pack from Ebay for 4,99

  • comment avatar vaibhavc October 24, 2011

    The one I have is 623 mb.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 24, 2011

      This is a different pack, it’s from FMF not Sortitoutsi.

      • comment avatar vaibhavc October 24, 2011

        Is the rar file 623 mb? Because each link I click on from FMF is 623 mb. I am lost.

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 24, 2011

          Maybe they split the files into pieces of 623 mb each, I don’t know.

  • comment avatar Calangea October 27, 2011

    this is not exist!!!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 27, 2011

      Please read the other comments and you might understand what has happened.

  • comment avatar Michael harris October 27, 2011

    Where is the high speed download you used I cant seem to find it???

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 27, 2011

      I can’t find it any more either, the Sortitoutsi website has had some problems during the weekend and they have reverted to an earlier version of the site which unfortunately meant that some pages are no longer available. Hopefully they will fix things soon.

      • comment avatar Michael harris October 27, 2011

        Thanks for the help Johnny, by the way have you found any good facepacks yet???

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 27, 2011

          I’m using the FM 2011 facepack, I just moved the files from the FM 11 folder to FM 12 :)

          • comment avatar Michael harris October 27, 2011

            Sounds like a good idea might try that myself

  • comment avatar Sunny Nayak November 2, 2011

    Hey Johnny Karp, could you let me know how and where to extract this Metallic Logo pack… I know its to be extracted in Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2012…. But i already have a graphics folder made by me, because of Cut Outs Megapack 4.0 and a few kits I downloaded from sortitoutsi…
    So now how do i properly extract this metallic logopack properly so it doesn’t overwrite my already made “graphics” folder…!!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 2, 2011

      Normally the folder shouldn’t be overwritten but just to make sure you will have to extract to a location of your choice and then just cut and past the extracted folder called “sortitoutsi.net” into your Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2012>graphics folder.

      • comment avatar Sunny Nayak November 3, 2011

        Oh hell yeah, It worked…! :D
        Thanks a million buddy…. The logos are working awesomely now…!!
        Just one more thing i am worried about is that my manager profile pic has gone missing :( Just a blank default screen… I remember this problem had a solution in FM 2011 by making a xml file… do we need to do something similar to that…??

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2011

          Here is how to add your own picture in FM 2012 after installing a facepack:
          1. select “Show Unique ID’s” in the game preferences
          2. Go to your manager home page and you should see your unique ID at the top, just below your name.
          3. Create a folder called me in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\graphics\
          4. Download this file (http://www.mediafire.com/file/zgmukq1zzmd/config.xml) and save it to that folder you just created. Open it in a text editor and change the 2 picture values to your unique id. (in my file the value is 1394644719)
          5. Take a picture of yourself and save it in the same folder. Rename the file with your unique id ( 1394644719.png in my case)
          6. in the game preferences – Display & Sound untick ‘Use Skin Cache’ and tick ‘Always Reload Skin on Confirm’. Press Confirm and it should now work.

          • comment avatar Sunny Nayak November 3, 2011

            The problem is solved :D I’m all set to resume my game..!
            You’re a life saver and a genius, I owe you a beer for the help mate, Cheers..!!

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 3, 2011

            You’re welcome mate, no problem at all.

          • comment avatar Tibbs November 14, 2011

            Hi

            I have had the same problem, however I tried the fix and nothing has happened. I followed it fully but nothing.
            Is it because of the skin I am using?

            This this the only graphical problem I have now and would love your help in sorting this.

            Cheers

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 14, 2011

            It could be the skin, try with the default skin and see if it works (it should work if you followed the instructions and if all the files extracted properly).

          • comment avatar Tibbs November 14, 2011

            I tried it with a couple of skins including the default and nothing. I have checked the number is correct too.

            I have backgrounds and the 90000 facepack installed fine. As well as 3d kits and logos. So I can’t work out why this won’t work…

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 14, 2011

            OK. Can you check the folder and tell me its size and content? The folder should be “sortitoutsi.net”, inside the “graphics” folder and its size should be around 3.5 GB.

  • comment avatar Sears November 6, 2011

    I downloaded this, but then this happened:

    Think I’ll just wait until they release the split file.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 6, 2011

      That’s quite strange, I’ve tested the torrent download and it worked just fine.

  • comment avatar Michael harris November 9, 2011

    Ive downloaded the pack and put everything in the right place, however only the flags are working, no club logos are. Is this a problem anyone else has encountered and if so is there a solution.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 9, 2011

      I suspect that the archive might not have extracted properly. Check the size of the “soritoutsi.net” folder inside “graphics”, if it’s around 3.5 GB then my theory is wrong. If not, you should try to extract the file again with another program (I recommend 7-zip).

  • comment avatar Jacob Bert December 23, 2011

    Hi. Is for me a little hard to understand all the thinks you have to download. But at first i try to open ‘FM12 Metallic Logo Torrent’ but it didnt work. Which program is needed?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 23, 2011

      A program like uTorrent can handle that kind of file, it opens it and then downloads the pack to a destination of your choice.

      • comment avatar Jacob Bert December 23, 2011

        Thanks, but you have to be a member of Sortitoutsi before?

  • comment avatar Mark December 25, 2011

    hey buddy, i’ve got all the right things in all the right places… apart from the fact that i cant find the sortitoutsi file… but other than that i put the graphics and editor data in the right places and still not coming up with badges on my FM2012 game :/ could you help me out. i’ve done all the ticking of the right boxes etc… the usual procedure… but still no badges :/

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp December 26, 2011

      Check if you have the logos inside the “graphics” folder, something might have gone wrong there. And by the way, I didn’t say anything about editor data, you might have taken that info from some other place.

  • comment avatar Sion January 1, 2012

    Hello. I’ve downloaded this and followed everything you said, but when i open the file and go into graphics i can’t find soritoutsi.net… what should i do? and how do i get football manager to recognize the file. pasted it into sports interactive and nothing happend

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 2, 2012

      What do you have inside the “graphics” folder?

  • comment avatar jackie January 10, 2012

    Doesnt work, downloaded the file and it stands in the fm 2012 map.

    and than i start fm 2012 and do click confirm and the skin should reload and dan i see only flags and al the other club logos are gone!!

    what is my problem??

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 10, 2012

      Where did you put the extracted files? From what I can understand I believe that you might have placed those in the wrong place.

  • comment avatar Chris January 15, 2012

    Hey, I’ve downloaded the torrent, extracted it, put the files in a “graphics” folder and changed my preferences on FM12 to reload the skins. However; any club or competition that already had a logo (ie. English Championship and the teams in it) no longer displays their logos? All the other logos are working fine though? Any ideas?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 15, 2012

      Are you sure that you have the “graphics” folder where it should be? I can’t know exactly what happened there but I suspect you might have placed it in another place that the one mentioned in the instructions.

  • comment avatar Scott Charleston March 26, 2012

    Help!!!!
    If you download the mega pack does this change the names of the competitions to the correct one such as European Cup to UEFA Champions League or do you need to do this on Editor ?
    Thanks in advance

  • comment avatar silva March 26, 2012

    I have downloaded it but it dosent seem to work can i have help to download it

  • comment avatar silva March 26, 2012

    Can i download the club logos anywhere else

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp March 26, 2012

      Have you downloaded it or not? Because the first message says you have. And if so, it should work if you follow the instructions in the post.

  • comment avatar Cammy Birnie March 31, 2012

    Hi Johnny,

    just downloaded this using free torrent viewer and it fully downloaded, I then found it in the correct folders but when I got onto the game and reloaded it, there was no badges or anything. Do you have any ideas on how to fix this?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 1, 2012

      Are you sure that you have extracted everything in the right folders, as mentioned in the instructions? Because if you did they should show in the game.

      • comment avatar Cammy Birnie April 1, 2012

        realised I had forgotten to extract it. However when I tried to extract it said error because it could not open the file as an archive. Any other ideas?

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 1, 2012

          My suggestion is to use a program called 7-zip to extract the archive, that’s the one I use.

          • comment avatar Cammy Birnie April 1, 2012

            I did use 7-zip though. Might give up with it, been trying to get it to work for ages. SI should really have all the licences for the game!

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 1, 2012

            Then try another similar program, if the archive is not corrupted it should work.

  • comment avatar kasadej yothawong April 11, 2012

    yesssssssssss

  • comment avatar kasadej yothawong April 11, 2012

    the good things

  • comment avatar Matt April 28, 2012

    I downloaded this and extracted the editor data folder and graphics folder into my football manager 2012 folder but the logos aren’t showing and the normal logos you have anyway have changed to random ones that SI made up.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 28, 2012

      I’m sorry but I can’t really understand what you did there, what has the editor data folder got to do with installing the logos pack?

  • comment avatar Matt April 28, 2012

    I have fixed that now but I only have logos like Real Madrid, Millwall, Birmingham, Palmeiras and I downloaded update 8 of sortitoutsi if that helps and haven’t installed any other 1

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 29, 2012

      Still not making sense, sorry.

  • comment avatar Matt April 29, 2012

    I have installed all the updates and I have logos like Liverpool, Millwall, Birmingham but I don’t have Barcelona or any other teams like that. I have no national logos either and the logos you get given at the start of the game without having to change anything have changed and aren’t the real logos.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp April 29, 2012

      I think that you might have placed those files in the wrong place, otherwise the logos should have shown in the game. Please read the instructions in the post and check if you have done the same.

  • comment avatar lee May 18, 2012

    karp the no.1 all my stadium backgrounds have dissapeared,ive had them a long time this makes no sense,can u help?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp May 19, 2012

      Installing the logos should not have any effect on the backgrounds, as long as you have followed the instructions.

  • comment avatar Soso laz June 11, 2012

    When i extract these files to your addrese:my document/sport interactiv/football manager/graphics/sortitoutsi.net/metalic logo/logos(is it right or no?)there are ot any change in the game.i already had my logospacks in these directory.when i continue the game the game automatically exits to windows and this error is shown:

    Dump files

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp June 11, 2012

      The dump files error has nothing to to with the logos as far as I know.

  • comment avatar Soso laz June 11, 2012

    What can i do now?as i said i had copied some logos and facepack from fmbase.com to my system and to that directory.if i wanna to use sortitoutsi logopack i should remove them?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp June 12, 2012

      You can’t use two logo packs at the same time, so you will have to remove one of them before installing the other.

  • comment avatar Olaf June 14, 2012

    I downloaded the file and saved in C:\Users\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\, inside there has been created new folder named ‘Football Manager’ inside it there is a ‘Graphics’ folder but inside that one there is no Sortitoutsi file.The folder contains another folder called ‘pictures’ and a word file ‘Credits’. Please help, many thanks Olaf

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp June 14, 2012

      Firstly, the path is not the correct one, please read the instructions again and you will see what I mean. And secondly, are the logos inside that “pictures” folder?

  • comment avatar arslan December 10, 2012
