I'm struggling here but my Steam files are also in the x86 folder

So, how do I do this?

Right, I sorted it so if anyone has the same problem

Go the game in your Steam List - Right click - Properties - Files - Check Cach Files (or something) - Let it do that, it'll do a little download & sort it for you

It does work, but since the regen faces have been changed a lot in FM16 it may look weird. The faces are a little closer on the screen, making the hairs stay above where they should be, this makes the shirts not fit correctly and may make beards aligned on the nose instead of below the nose. This also happens with Debski hair pack.

very nice, looking forward to this, will make career games much more playable

any possibility of fixing the olt hairpack and this pack as well? http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/430358-Deadwood-Regen-Hairpack-v2-1

did you fixed each hair individually or did you just moved all hairs down? if you moved them all at once could be easier to fix these other two packs with photoshop action scripts

I fixed the olt hairpack with a photoshop action scripts and almost all hairs look ok.

I will share the folder tomorrow if I have time.

Any update to an alternate FM16 hair pack? An essential for a career game!

Some of the work you guys do is incredible!

My pack which you see an example of in post 167 will be released tomorrow. I have updated it with around 500 new styles, bringing the total over 2000 with last years pack.

Stay tuned! :-)

Just to check: will the files be saved-game compatible? I don't know why Football Manager don't make your hairpack(s) default regen hair!

I Hope that OLT released a new with more new styles for FM 16 :)

Regards...

Me too but it seems that OLT hasn't posted on the forums for a while.

I started to create by myself more hairstyles to at least replace the default one but it's very time consuming so i have only done the default european so far.

OLT Expanded Hair Pack v4.0:

I always thought there were way too few hairstyles to offer any variety in NewGens in the game, and while I rectified most of that problem with the previous three versions of my OLT Hairpack, I still feel more are needed. I focused on ensuring all ethnic groups were represented in all colors and lengths in this version. In doing so I was hoping to eliminate the problem of "false balds", thinking they were the result of perhaps not having a hair available in the correct style. While this update significantly reduces the "false balds" problem, it doesn't entirely eliminate it. So, I'm still trying to figure out what is going on there.

Here is a short breakdown of what V4 brings to the popular OLT Hair Pack:

LARGEST UPDATE EVER:

This time I added more than 900 new hairs to the pack! 947 new ones, to be exact! Also, in addition to this - those are all truly unique. In the past I used to recolor a lot of hairs to add the same style in different colors. I don't do that any more. So a dark brown hair style will not have an identical match in light brown (of the new ones). That means that I actually cut 947 unique styles of hair this time. It's been a lot of work - but add so much more variety. It's worth it in the end!

ALL COLORS AND LENGTHS REPRESENTED:

As I already said above - I've made sure that each ethnic group (afro, asian, euro and so forth) have hair images for all lengths (long, short, medium) and all colors within each of these lengths. It's kinda hard to find an Afro with long red hair, for example... but I've managed them all in the end! Reason I did this was that I was hoping the problem with "false balds" would go away. It didn't - not entirely. But the problem is MUCH smaller than it used to be, so you'll rarely see shirtless balds if using the shirts version, and the Default Replacements.

BALD PLAYERS:

And, speaking of bald players. Let's talk about the "real balds". I've ensured these now appear with the shirt as well. They also come in a variety of styles, so that bald players can now have full beards, goatees, moustaches or earrings. There are even a couple of styles of spectacles and a small neck tattoo variety. I continue to try out new things to add to the variety, and I feel these things have really put some character to the players. These are very rare, also, so you won't be seeing them often. That's what makes it all the sweeter when you come across them.

NEW SHIRTS:

Last year I introduced shirts on the players. I was never really happy with that dull grey t-shirt I put them in, and I always wanted to get a proper football jersey on them. I've been trying to figure out a way to add these with color coding to represent the current team they're playing for, but I've come to the conclusion that this is not going to be possible the way things are set up right now. So, I went with one that I feel is neutral enough, and doesn't catch your attention too much. White with a blue trim. I feel it works tremendously well. Let me know how you guys feel about it, so I can keep that in mind for the future. Hopefully, colors won't be an issue, if ever there is a way of using color coding... let's hope SI ;)

In addition to my Hair Pack, I also decided to offer an additional download to add shirts to the default hairs as well. It looks kind of weird if only players with my hairs get realistic shoulders, while the defaults still appear as heads on a stick. So make sure you get the default replacements as well!

IN THE FUTURE:

Next time around I'll be focusing on replacing a lot of the hairs that are not up to snuff. Over the years that I've been doing this thing, I've learned a few tricks and I've become better at creating much more realistic hairs for the players. The more realistic the hair - the more realistic the whole player looks. So, while I've been focusing on numbers up until now, next update will probably not add that many to the hair count. However, it should ensure that no players have a bad hairday... well, they might - but not because the hair is poorly cut.

I still haven't given up on the idea of color coded shirts, either. I'll continue to try and figure out a way to do this, since it would add so much to the game. There is a certain joy to looking at a player and seeing him in your team colors after you purchase his services.

I'll also continue to look into the "false bald" problem, and will do an update immediately if/when I figure this problem out.

You can't go wrong using this, guys!

Enjoy!

DOWNLOAD HERE:

- OLT Expanded Hair Pack v4.0

- OLT Expanded Hair Pack v4.0 (No Shirts) (Only download this if you don't want shirts on the players)

- OLT Default Replacements - Adds Shirts to the default hairs!

Newgens will never look the same once you install this!

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY INSTALLED A PREVIOUS VERSION:

Please delete the old "olt hairpack" folder before installing this one, to prevent any unwanted effects. Further instructions on how to install below.

------------------INFO--------------------

Install:

- Extract "olt hairpack" folder into the following directory:

- [YOUR FM INSTALL FOLDER*]\data\facegen\hair

- DO NOT OVERWRITE THE EXISTING ORIGINAL FOLDERS (afro, asian, euro, hispanic, mixed_race). You should have the "olt hairpack" folder in this directory IN ADDITION to the other ones, or you will mess up your game.

* Steam Users (default):

- C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014

* Others (default):

- C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014

Note: In the facegen/hair folder, you should notice five folders already (afro, asian, euro, hispanic & mixed_race). These are the default hairs for the game. You should add the "olt hairpack" folder to those five in there so you don't write over the original hair styles. So DO NOT extract the "afro", "asian", "euro" & "hispanic" folders from within the "olt hairpack" folder directly into the "facegen/hair" folder. Extract the actual folder "olt hairpack" into this directory.

If you have a previous version of the OLT Hairpack installed, I recommend deleting the "olt hairpack" folder before installing the new one (all old hairstyles will still be there).

This is what your install folder should look like:

IMPORTANT!

After installing this update you need to clear the cache and restart your game for them to take effect. So, go into Preferences/Interface and click the button "Clear Cache", then untick "use cache" and enable "reload on confirm". Then confirm and exit the game. Restart the game, and the new hairs should now be in effect. You can then safely return the settings to use caching for increased loading speed.

- Enjoy

* I would, however, prefer you use the official Mediafire link contained in this post, so I can keep track of the downloads.

-------NOTES----------

Known issues:

- Regens sometimes change hairs upon installation of new updates, but as long as the hair folders remain the same, so will the hairs.

- There is still an issue where some players are not assigned a hair and appear bald with no shirt. I'm still trying to figure out a way to solve this!

- Rarely, some extreme featured faces may not align 100% with the hair image. Most notably with the bearded ones. But, 99% work just fine!

PS. Anyone who wants to see a specific hairstyle with my next release are welcome to post a picture of it here, and I'll get it done for use in the game.

The picture has to be a "mugshot" type picture - head held up, looking straight forward.

I'll even do YOU :) (You can blur out your face to protect your identity) I'm in there from the initial release... always a good chuckle when I recognize a player with my own head of hair...

Also noteworthy... it's better if the picture has good contrast and lighting. Natural colors is important, so don't provide those yellowed out cell phone pictures...

Hey, will this work on FM12
