  1. Just put the folder containing the graphics in Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2018 / graphics (or its user data folder equivalent if you've changed it).
  2. To be honest, the most serious issue was the fact that a description of what the attribute meant (i.e. what is today known as the tooltip) was written next to the attribute, principally to fill in the space. There were only 6 attributes iirc So a chairman's profile would read: Patience 11 Will persist with poor team performance up to a point Resources 3 Has limited resources to move the club forward etc. iirc the principal issue was that a chairman was not best pleased at his resources rating and subsequent description, so SI took the decision to take the chairman profile out of the game. Google is letting me down and I'm not finding any screenshots to confirm this! Edit: as luck would have it, I've found one after I posted this: Edit 2: I think it was the Business Acumen attribute which irked the chairman in question, rather than resources. To be fair, I can kind of see why
  3. Imo those are all animation issues. Top players do give bad passes, but the current ME's animation limitations means they are represented as ball kicking against the back of a teammate's legs. Goalkeepers do get anticipated by strikers, but the current ME's animation limitations means that they are displayed as bouncing nonchalantly on the spot etc. etc. I agree that these niggles should be removed/tweaked as a priority because things like this really do break match immersion, or at least they do for me. I am confident SI will deal with it, tbh
  4. For the older members amongst us, they may recall chairman profiles being visible, with attributes such as resources and patience. Due to a legal challenge by a chairman who disagreed with his attributes, this feature was discontinued. I believe the game was still Championship Manager at this point.

    Wages and Tax

    Essentially, you as a manager will look at the total outgoings (i.e. including the whole gross expenditure), while the player will primarily look at his take-home pay. I'm not sure if Monaco's lower real-life tax rates are taken into consideration by the game (very possibly, I would have thought) - but if they are, then Monaco will have a distinct advantage when courting players, as they will be able to pay players more than other clubs, while actually spending less

    Negative bank loan?

    Congratulations - you're so rich, the bank is loaning money from you!
  7. Works fine for me. Try extracting them using Winrar.
  8. Great work Can you please remove the Susie files from there? For one thing, you haven't asked permission to use them and secondly, they're not supposed to be on the official forums for a very simple reason. I appreciate you've done this out of a sense of altruism, but it's always good to get the agreement of file creators to include them in one's downloads
  9. Hear, hear. Just a shame that too many people in today's entitled worldview evidently seem to disagree...

    Best to ask in the Skinning Hideout. Almost always, similar issues are somehow related to the way or location the user has installed the files, even if they have done everything right. It's generally something relatively minor and quickly solved once identified. I suggest you post screenshots of the locations where your graphics are located and also of how they look in-game at present. Have you untick the use skin cache button? You only mention that you have cleared the cache, which isn't the same thing Happily, graphics can be added, modified, removed and overhauled even after starting a new game.
  11. This is not possible, as is the case in real life. However, it's a relatively small change in the editor to award a promotion place to the GFA 1st Division and a relegation place to MFA 3rd Division to allow Gozitan clubs to participate in the Maltese league pyramid.

    facepack torrent

    There is a torrent available on the cutout facepack forum over on sortitoutsi. To find the torrent, scroll to the bottom of this page until you come to the torrent tabs and download the 10.0 version. To be fully up-to-date, you would still have to download any subsequent update packs separately.
  13. A new version of this file, compatible with 18.3, is now available for download
