NB: This is for FM09 & FM10, not all images will show in FM08 - click HERE for what to do with FM08

Contains 55,800 images of staff & players.
Search it's contents HERE (http://www.leaguehistory.co.uk/search/)
Create a Facepack from a selection HERE (http://www.leaguehistory.co.uk/create/) (beta)

This has been created and complied over at sortitoutsi.net and combines literally thousands of hours of work. View the READ ME file included for credit to all the hard working people that made this possible.

It is 2.6GB so will take a while to download ;)

(Direct links will be posted here when available)
(NOTE: Due to this pack's size of 2.56GB it will be difficult to host a direct download, please be patient)
Split Version:
MP v2 Part One (http://stihipro.com/download/CutOut%20v2.zip.001)
MP v2 Part Two (http://stihipro.com/download/CutOut%20v2.zip.002)
MP v2 Part Three (http://stihipro.com/download/CutOut%20v2.zip.003)
MP v2 Part Four (http://stihipro.com/download/CutOut%20v2.zip.004)
(Thanks to PoshSpice @ FMF)

(http://www.leaguehistory.co.uk/search/)Download the Main Pack BEFORE the updates!

*Update 2.1 (yet to be released)

Please download MEGAPACK V2, then update 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 etc in order. Once you have downloaded an update move the contents of the update into you megapack folder (accepting any overwrite messages you get)

PLEASE READ THE ENCLOSED INSTRUCTIONS FOR FULL DETAILS.

The idea behind this Megapack is that everyone downloads it and it gives us a base to work from, over time with each release we will replace older/poor-quality images with newer/better ones as well as filling in the blanks along the way.

We have moved this to it's own thread as there are many questions that arise from it and want to keep it all together so as not to clutter the other threads.

NOTE Re: Torrents, if you have never used it before follow these instructions:

You will need a program - download and install THIS (http://www.utorrent.com/) (uTorrent)

Then, once installed on your PC, click on the Megapack Torrent link. Scroll down the page and click "Download torrent", your PC will then ask you what program you want to open the file/torrent with, browse your PC and find uTorrent and click OK.

It will then start downloading the pack into uTorrent and the pack will be in your documents in a folder called File Share Downloads.

It will probably take a while to download depending on how many people are sharing it at the moment, so leave it going perhaps overnight....

Any probs, give me a shout.

Download Torrent (http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5151522/FM10_Faces_Megapack_2_0)

Try this: http://torrents.thepiratebay.org/5151522/FM10_Faces_Megapack_2.0.5151522.TPB.torrent

There's a comment on there, which says:Thanks dude, but why u put all the pictures in one folder? It takes a week untill game starts, or when you want to change the skins... This is a very good point. :nono:

Yes it does work....If not for you then this is because your Firewall won't let you open Pirate Bay. HERE (http://torrents.thepiratebay.org/5151522/FM10_Faces_Megapack_2.0.5151522.TPB.torrent) is a direct link to the torrent, open it using a Torrent Manager Program like uTorrent.

The reason all the pics are in the same folder is so we don't have any conflicts. If you have two images of the same player in two different folders neither will appear.

You are more than welcome to split the pack up, but it will make sorting it when I release updates very hard for you. Also the game will still take as long to load up at start, because you'll simply have more configs to load.

Easy on the 'you're just thick' remarks. I am fully aware of how to use bit torrent. The link worked but the info was blank, sometimes. I'm sure it's not just for me either.

Thanks for the hard work anyway.

What do you mean "You're Just Thick" I never said such a thing....

I simply said, "yes it does work" jeesssh.

Not sure why it didn't work for you, simply suggested one possibility. Over 10,000 people have followed that link now, so it must be something at your end.

Apologies if I came across patronizing, I was simply trying to suggest a solution.

(Also I have had hundreds of messages where people don't even understand what a torrent IS, so I need to explain the basics before moving onto other issues)

No, as stated this is ONLY an add-on to the existing megapack. (featuring just 2,215 images as opposed to the 55,800)

Mike - I gave Filefront & Mediafire for the update, are you saying you want rapidshare instead?

Mike
23-11-2009, 09:45 PM
Its teh one I prefer, though what you gave was fine too. I got it all without any trouble :)

I have downloaded the megapack and all the pictures are there, but I do not have a 'graphics' folder in the 'Sport Interactive' folder to put the pictures in...

I have installed using steam and using Windows 7.

Any suggestions???

As stated in the instructions you need to create your own "graphics" folder within the FM10 folder and put the MP in there.

I'm not sure the MP links are still active....I know you had to be a RapidShare Premium customer to download them....

If the torrent is slow for you, then do this...

Right click along the bottom of the uTorrent window and choose "Enable DHT."

I love the pack. I have already run a few searches to see if my teams are in there and they are!!! Big props!

One question... am I doing something wrong? I downloaded the pack and am now extracting it to the directory. It has taken 4 hours to extract so far and has 5 hours to go. Is this normal? I have a fast dual core machine. I will wait for it, but I have never seen anything like it!

It is working, I can go see the photos in there. So for now I am waiting...

Hmmm...bit weird, probably shouldn't take that long...it does contain 55,000 images though and if you're using Vista I have heard some weird stories about how it handles file structure, so maybe that's it.... Hope it works for you.

Can you state the EXACT location of the megapack and exactly what you've done? It might just be case of re-reading the instructions....if you do exactly what they say, there shouldn't be a problem...

Rowan

This isn't really recommended for a 1.5GB RAM system on a large database, is it?

It makes NO difference whatsoever. All this pack will do is slow down the game on startup (slightly)

The game loads the config file (which is 55,000 long) at the beginning so this pack has no effect on gameplay whatsoever - except making it better with faces ;)

Instructions are included. Torrent is the only way available until somebody can host it (the pack is huge...)

Someone has volunteered but it may be a while before there is a Direct link.

BTW - I have uTorrent on my Mac, so that doesn't make any difference....

Nah, it's been acting up recently, sendspace is more reliable when uploading large files atm.

"Small Faces" are the icons that appear next to someone's name when you left mouse click. You don't see them much in-game, but a nice little add-on if you want it.

Now without sounding retarded, is it possible for me to use both the facepack and the logo's pack, and if so, where would i save this?

Same place. Inside that graphics folder create a sub-folder called "faces" and put the Megapack in there. Then apply the updates one by one.

The Megapack (and all subsequent updates) have a READ ME file - Please view that before doing anything as it's important you follow the instructions.

Hope you like it.

One final question, i promise! Is it possible to add your own cut-outs to this, such as a picture of a created player, (i assume you save the file as the numeric unique ID number) or is there protection?

Yep, do what you like with it, you'll just need to alter the config file with the new ID so it loads in game.

Although each update includes a new config file, so that would over-write your personalised one.

I have my own personal secondary folder within "Faces" for that sort of thing called "Rowan-In Game" this includes my manager pic as well as images I've used to replace ugly regens.

I'm having troubles with this also, I'm not getting the reason though.

Running on Win 7, game installed and automatically updated through Steam. Created the folder, installed the megapack according to instructions. Pictures work on many of the players, but none from the premiership. Can't be a problem of dublicate facepacks since this is the first one I try out... Same thing happens after the updates. Works on the Spanish League for example... but not the Premiership players. Funny, since Rooney is the sample image.

Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Don't know what I can try next actually.... :moop:

Yes, did that, and double checked...

1. Open 'My Computer'
2. Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
3. Go into the 'Sports Interactive' folder
4. Delete any 'Football Manager' folder

2. Click your username on the Start Menu
3. Click on 'AppData' and then 'Roaming'

Rowan... Me again. when you said i would have to create a new config file to input my own image into the game... How would i do this, i'm assuming its not via the data editor as my created team has transferred as have the player images within the megapack or will i have to go to the editor and start my team and up-to-date transfers from scratch?

Just create a separate folder within graphics/faces - called My Faces or something and put them and the config in there.

I wrote a guide on all the different types of installation you'd need on SUSIE, but I'll post it on the next reply - not sure if a mod wants to add it as a sticky somewhere useful?

Packs to be extracted thus:

1. Extract the zip/rar file into;

My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2010/Graphics/Facepacks

2. You may need create the above folders, if they do not exist.

3. Load up FM, go to Options > Preferences > Display and Sound

4. Untick ''Use skin cache'' box

5. Tick ''Always reload on confirm'' box

6. Then click ''Confirm''

7. The faces should appear. Sometimes not all the images appear in the case of megapacks, you may need to re-install the game to ensure the Megapack runs smoothly.

Also you may lose your manager's face, if so follow this guide:


Getting your picture to appear in game:

1) In-game, go to prefs, display & sound, select "show unique IDs", untick "use skin cache" & tick "always reload on confirm".

Wait while it sorts itself out, then go to your manager info and you'll see a long number underneath you name something like...139456789123....make a note of this number.

2) Save your chosen picture of you as this ID (making sure it's a .PNG file) into the following folder:
my documents/sports interactive/fm2009/graphics/faces/me
(You may need to create the last 3 folders)

3) Next you need to create a config file (the file that links the game to the image) and put it in the folder "me" with your picture.
You can download THIS (http://files.filefront.com/fmxmlexe/;4935277;/fileinfo.html) which will do it automatically for you or create one yourself using this template I've created for you HERE (http://files.filefront.com/configtxt/;13716811;/fileinfo.html) (simply change the bits that says "change me" to your ID number you got earlier) Save it.

4) Go back to your game prefs and untick "Show unique IDs" click confirm and hey presto your picture should be there.

NOTE: It is worth doing this if you regularly download faces/logos/skins/etc as the game often "forgets" your manager number. This way (Within that saved game) it will always be there.


Getting an Individual picture to appear in game:

1) Save your chosen picture as the correct ID into the following folder:
my documents/sports interactive/fm2009/graphics/Facepacks/Individual
(You may need to create the last 3 folders)

2) Next you need to create a config file (the file that links the game to the image) and put it in the folder "Individual" with your picture.
You can download THIS (http://www.filefront.com/14225731/fmXML.zip/) which will do it automatically for you or create one yourself using this template I've created for you HERE (http://files.filefront.com/configtxt/;13716811;/fileinfo.html) (simply change the bits that says "change me" to the ID number you got earlier) Save it.

3) Go back to your game prefs and untick "Show unique IDs" click confirm and hey presto your picture should be there.


Any questions, please feel free to ask.

I have tried extracting the file about 4 times now and it freezes my computer every time. I left it on overnight last night thinking that it would just take a while but it was still frozen this morning.

I am using Win7 and have a very fast PC with an i7 in it and 6gb ram so it's not my ststem (unless Windows 7 is a problem). I never usually have a problem with these files either.

Is this happening to anybody else, or does anybody have any ideas to make it work?

Try running the zip through THIS (http://objectrescue.com/products/objectfixzip/?tag=web_products), should fix any glitches with the file.

Not to knock your work mate, but are you working with Rowan on this or are you just pasting your own cutouts here?

The megapack is still being produced under the aegis of Rowan and all the other regular contributors on the susie forums. All of which deserve a heartfelt :hail: imo

For the time being and with his permission, however, I'm collecting the images and sifting through them to decide which merit inclusion in the next update.

Hope this clears up any confusion...

Have installed and run FM11 and then found this thread so have downloaded the megapacks and moved them to their correct file
BUT
now when the game loads it gets past the "War Child" and "League" advertisements and then goes to a blank screen with

Processing..... Processing.....
Please Wait


so left this overnight thought it might take a while to install the faces and still processing 8 hours later.............

So do i now have to re-install the whole game or is there a quick fix.

and with the megapacks i also added the prem league logo and league badge pack

I have got other downloads working such as tactics and training sheds so have ticked always reload and unticked the skin cache boxes

so i know my downloads and game were fine but it may just be the megapacks,but just didnt wanna have to uninstall and the re-install

thanks for taking the time to respond
cheers
