just creating this thread so that if/when someone finds a really good megapack with all the facepacks everyone else can be clued in as there are always so many on the different FM sites its hard every year to find the best ones.


***********************************

I've started a game already and yet to download facepacks waiting for 3.0. Will the changes apply to the game I've already started? Cheers!

And how would I go about putting the faces into the game? Noob here. Thanks!

Download the facepack, fmbase do good ones. And then add the faces to:

My Documents>Sports Interactive>FootballManager2011>Graphics>Faces

Then you need to go into Display and Sounds options ingame. The 'Always Reload Skin' should be ticked. Untick the Use Skin Cache.

Same for logos. It really helps make the game look a lot better.

You have to create the "graphics" folder yourself. The extract the archives you downloaded into your created folder.

Create a Graphics folder, inside that then create seperate folders for kits, logos and facepacks.

Extract the kits to said folder, start game, go into preferences and tick "Always load skin on confrim".

All facepacks/logos from previous FMs work on FM11 too, might save you alot of time!

If anyone wants to be a hero and upload the megapack as one file I would really appreciate it. Having no luck with those files. (They always end up broken when I try to extract!)

Its actually wrecking me..

The Facepack? I'm the same, keeps getting corrupted and they take ages to download. I'm also looking for a German 3 Bundesliga Logo pack, if anyone knows where to find it let me know thanks

Another Logo pack here http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/f107/revolution11-official-thread-fm-balkan-project-t49981.html Decent quality, loads of logos in 3 easy packs.

OK I'll create a guide.

I'm using the Face Megapack I downloaded from FM base.

First create the directories. Go to Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2010/2011.

If Graphics isn't there then create a folder called 'graphics'. Inside graphics, create 3 folders, Kits, Faces and Logos.



Then, go to the new file you have downloaded. Extract it using winrar. To make it easier, just extract it to the desktop.



When it's completed, move it to the necessary folder in the Graphics folder you have created in Sports Interactive.



Then launch your game, go to Preferences>Display and Sounds and untick Use Skin Cache and tick Always Reload Skin On Confirm.



Restart the game and enjoy! And just do the same for any kits and logos you download!
