FM12 Cut-Out Faces Megapack Thread

Recommended Posts

Up to you really mate, thats what am gonna though. We have 91k images at the minute and I seen one of the cutters say the other day that he's reaching near 100k images for 4.0. So I'm guessing we should have around 9k maybe more new and improved images in the update for 3.0 when ever it's released.

100,000 was an over-exaggeration. My folder is up to 92,500+ and that's roughly the amount you'll have once you download the new file.

Can we keep on from existing Megapack we've been using for FM 2011 ? Is it only a matter of moving files ?

You can. But if you've downloaded only up to a certain update, you might as well download the new pack. But, yes you can just transfer files over and they should work for you.

Yeah, I thought as much. I was certain I downloaded the very latest available complete pack. Obviously not.

edit: Well that's just plain strange. Not sure how but it looks like there's an issue with a legacy folder with older faces and the game appears to be picking these up. About to delete the old folder and the current one and copy across from back up. I checked the backup, its version 13 for sure and I checked the faces and they're updated versions.

At this point, I'd just suggest waiting a few days and downloading 4.0, if only for peace of mind :)

Good news. TomDixon77, has very kindly created the 180x180 Player Mod for FM12.

Download

Extract to the following location:

Windows: My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/panels

Mac: Username/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/panels

You may need to create the panels folder yourself.

Tom is also looking into creating a 180 Staff mod as well. We are also looking at fixing the missing info this creates on the Player Attributes screen.

Very nice. Looking forward to the staff one.

I'm glad you guys like it. I will try to upload the whole skin somewhere. It would be my first time....

Where would you guys like me to upload it, what site? Do I have to compress the file/folder of the skin?

yeah,compress the folder of the skin with winrar and upload it somewhere....megaupload would be my choice :)

Booo. Too many ads & clicks there...Mediafire or Gamefront. Make sure you sign up to a free account with either so the link doesn't get removed after a month though.

PS. Torrent is tantalisingly close now.... ;)

megaupload opens a Poker Casino ad in another window and you have to wait a few seconds and input a catch phrase on the occasions I've visited it.....? Maybe I've just been unlucky.

You can expect the Torrent of 4.0 very soon, hopefully somepoint today or tomorrow morning....and hopefully a split-up version of the pack on other hosting sites within a few days of release...

Will you still release a small pack of any new pics for those who have 3.11? I've added extra pics and added their codes to the Megapack config file, so I don't want to replace the config.

Erm valla...Look at my last post (just one above yours) ....<<shakes head in dis-belief>>

PS. phnompenhandy - Yes I believe we are intending on releasing a patch for 3.12 to 4.0, can't give you an exact date, but should be soon.

Sorry, I meant 3.12.

Will your patch have pictures separate to the config file so that I can edit my config rather than overwrite it?

And by the way Rowan, are you still working on more regen pics? Some of the pics I've incorporated into my game are those ones.

if you have added say database images such as created players then just use graphics config or FMxml to create a new config from the folder you have

Originally (last week) I had, in my 'graphics''/faces' folder one folder for the Megapack and a separate folder for my own pics with a config file. That worked in FM11 but in FM12 my pics didn't show up. So I transferred the pics and code to the megapack folder and everything's dandy.

I wouldn't do that as each time a MP Update is released it will over-write your config...although I spose you can just create another each time. As long as you know what you're doing no problem I spose. Although I don't see why having separate folders within graphics>Faces would make any difference.....?

Re: Your other question, other people are creating Regen Faces over on sortitousi now HERE (look through last few pages), but I'm really busy with work and any time I get for cutting I'm investing in Missing & Improvement Megapack Images now....maybe later in the year I'll release another pack, but no promises.

I download the megapack that has 73 thousand odd faces for last season, when 4.0 comes out do I just need to download 4.0 and then get rid of the FM11 pack?

Yes mate, you could have downloaded all the updates and be a bit closer to what will be in 4.0, but at this point, I'd wait for 4.0 and bin what you had for FM11

Not true 4.0 was never up, it was just the last version 3.12 - didn't stop thousands from downloading that and busting Susie though :(

4.0 is currently in construction and will be released by the end of the week we hope (and there will be a torrent for it)

Will 4.0 for FM12 be a brand new pack?

So would we all need to download this huge pack from scratch again? Or can we just copy our FM11 3.12 pack to FM12 and rename it 4.0 and just add the updates when they are released?

Thanks.

BCFC_Mike - please show me anywhere in this thread (or elsewhere) where I or anyone involved in this project mentioned any estimated ETA other than 'next week' or 'late this week'.

Damned if we do and damned if we don't.

On a related note, I'm working on the assumption that (barring any last-minute hitches) this will be out at some stage this weekend, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Not trying to discredit you, I'm happy to wait as long as it takes to get it done, but I couldn't resist a pedantic post ;)

Damn - hadn't spotted that.

Mind you, to be pedantic right back at you, we're still within the timeframe of 'tomorrow morning'. Moreover, we said again, which implies a prior case of missing a deadline, which is not the case :p

This is turning into a pedant's corner now, isn't it?

Nope, this may be the 3.12 to 4.0 crossover for those that can't download the full pack, but still want to be updated....however it is not really meant to go live yet (and I'm not 100% sure it's correct yet), can people just please wait until we announce everything Properly.....?

do we need to download the 180x180 mod or will it work without it?

The MP will work fine without it, but the mod will display the images in the way in which we produced them rather than being cropped by the game and thus losing some of the crispness.

Yeah mines the same been on 0.1% for ages its just the ETA that's changing, my experience with big download torrents like this is usually they speed up quite a bit once they get going.

Mons is waiting to get back from work to update this main thread.

It is out now, and this is not how we intended on announcing it, but as you've already started sharing the torrent link without consent Cadijk....
