  1. I am having the same problem and I am not using a mac I created a graphics folder in my Sports Interactive - Football Manager 2020 folder and then placed a faces folder in there and downloaded a faces pack. I then followed the below instructions but the faces are not showing up in my game, has anybody any ideas? Cheers Next go into your Football Manager 2020 game, click the 'FM' icon in the top right and go to 'preferences'. When the next screen loads, click the 'advanced' tab in the top left and select 'interface' from the drop down menu on the right. Click the drop down menu in the bottom left and click the 'clear cache' option. Go back to the 'interface' screen and tick the box that says 'Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences'.
  2. I used the player template that Kubi posted, works great. Thanks for the help
  3. I am trying to add a photo to a regen in FM18 I have already installed the faces cut out pack and installed it, I also have a photo (that I took from Regen replacements) that I hope to use for the regen and I have renamed it with the user id that I got from the game. I have then added the photograph to my faces folder (with all the photos from the face pack). I then followed the below and put the below line on the config file that came with the faces pack. -Add this line to the group of lines in the config file inside the folder where you put the picture file: <record from="(ID NUMBER)" to="graphics/pictures/person/(ID NUMBER)/portrait"/> Don't include the parentheses. However it doesn't seem to have worked as the regen face is still showing and no sign of the photograph. Do I need to untick the box which states show generated pictures or do I need to install a separate faces folder (and seperate config file) for the regens in my graphics folder? I am fairly new to all this so any advice or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks
  4. How do you do the below in FM18? Of course i know that its possible to give any player i want to a specific photo..... but this is very inconvinient, even though i just do it for my own players.
  5. Anybody know if this will work with FM 2018? I have had a look but the instructions seem to have changed and I am not sure how to do below with the FM 2018 version. Anybody tried it yet on 2018 version? 3) Locate the Player or staff member's UID......In-game, go to preferences>display & sound, then select "show unique IDs", untick "use skin cache" & tick "always reload on confirm".
  6. Hello all I am also looking for a new/upgrade on my laptop and my main reason for purchasing is to play FM, I have had a look here in HK and I need to purchase through a certain shop so I can pay over 12 months. My options on availability are therefore limited. Anyway this one seems really good for the price, can anybody confirm that this would be a good option for the upcoming 2018 version of FM? Help/advice would be appreciated. It will cost $6,799.00 HKD which is around 680 - 700 quid.

  7. Yeah I have done all that kingrobbo but nothing seems to have changed. Has anybody managed to get this working with FM2016 or is it just not compatible? Cheers
  8. Does anybody know if this will still work with FM 2016? I tried the below but doesn't seem to have done anything. Any ideas as this is a great idea in my opinion. Backup your hair folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2016\data\facegen\hair -Delete it and extract the new hair folder there -Regen faces should be replaced upon loading the game
  9. Kriss, To be fair I think the major frustration with this issue is that the demo wasn't available in the region (as phnomphenhandy states the biggest continent on the planet) and this is when alarm bells should have started ringing. People questioned this on this very thread and were given the response from Neil Brock stating I've comfirmed that you'll have to wait until the 7th November. We have now gone past this date and the game is not available, so if this was confirmed then why are people in this region unable to gain access to the game. I guess the frustrations that people are showing is related to the fact that they would like some answers rather than being brushed off with you need to direct your frustrations at Sega. Surely SI games are just as concerned about this as we are (if they aren't then they probably should be due to the loss of potential revenue) and some signs that something is being done or attempts are being made to find out when the problem will be resolved would be greatly appreciated.
  10. This really is a joke Kriss you keep saying its a sega issue, like somebody said earlier it is a partnership and accountability needs to be taken instead of just passing the buck and saying its not our fault. The demo hasnt been available in the regions that are having difficulties so there was plenty of time to investigate the situation and find out why before the release date but this has obviously not been done. Now there are numerous previous loyal customers to the SEGA/STEAM/SI product/brand that have been let down by incompetent and lazy action that has left alot of people upset, many of whom have paid 30 quid for the privelige. I suggest people start putting their heads together and start producing a solution to this error that doesnt involve VPN's or asking somebody thousands of miles away to log into an account to download a product that should be readily available on the release date that was provided previously. Especially when the companies involved have been happy to accept payment for this game and many previous versions. I look forward to this situation being resolved soon.
  11. Im in hong Kong and i am unable to buy it from the official website, I haven't tried Steam yet but I will when I get home from work. Not keen on shelling out 30 quid and then finding out it wont work, can anybody let us know when we can actually get the game in these regions. Thanks
  12. Yeah I have downloaded lots of torrents, I use utorrent all the time. the file doesnt seem like a folder so I dont know what to do with it. Any ideas? When i click on it I get the message saying windows cant open this file and I can choose a program to open it.
  13. I have downloaded the torrent for this from fmdownloads but im not sure what I do with it now. When i click on it I get the message saying windows cant open this file and I can choose a program to open it. Is this correct or has it not downloaded properly? There are no folders with pics in them. Any help would be appreciated, I would rather download the pack by torrent if possible. Thanks
  14. Loversleaper I was hoping you could offer me some advice. Im playing in the conference north with Blyth Spartans and im predicted to finish mid season so im looking at using the tactician style. Im doing fine at home with a combination of the hiddink and sir alex but im struggling away from home. When i am large underdogs i use the Allegri and that works well but im struggling for a tactic when im favourites (both large and short) and short underdogs. Any reccomendations on what you would use on normal dry days. Cheers
  15. Does anybody have any schedule that they use for pre season training? I seem to get blocks of injuries with this schedule, 3 players 2 months each. Anybody else experiencing this?
