[RELEASED] Automatic Regen Replacements v1.1

Recommended Posts

The idea is to use the same method as O'Leary's Trainee with his OLT Expanded Hair Pack v3.0 to replace the facegen hair but instead, replacing them with people faces that were not in the game, just as Rowan's Regen Replacements (Cut-Out Style).

I found a pack in FM Korea that did the same thing with around 1.000 different faces. I couldn't find the page again by myself but I downloaded the pack and uploaded it if you want (LINK).

This pack has a background on the new regen faces, as seen below:

I mantained the structure of this pack and replaced their faces with Rowan's (and other cutters from sortitoutsi). So every regen has a face of a person not in the game. Like this:

Random24copy.pngRandom40.png

Download v1.0 (1.008 faces)

Download v1.1 (13.868 faces) (Mediafire) (MEGA)

Installation:

-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

Issues:

1.-Not all faces cover all the real regen face on the background, so sometimes you can see a part of the original regen ears for example. When i have time i resize the replacement faces so they can cover the regen, but it takes time.

Solution:

If you don't want to see the original regen showing behind the cut out delete these files and restart the game

D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2016\data\facegen\little_endian\model_sets\default\face\facehi.png and eyelhi.png and eyerhi.png

2.-This pack lacks of asian faces compared to other ethnicities.

Solution: Contribute with more cut-outs (http://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/350/regen-replacement-images). You can use this website to mix and generate new faces: https://photofunia.com/effects/face_swap

Is one of the best I have found.

3.-Faces not showing or bald regen.

Solution: I think this bug is solved in FM16

Even though the quantity of the faces in the pack improved greatly (1.008 in v1.0 vs. 13.868 in v1.1), the quality is not that good, so I think the next update will be a depuration, cutting down the number.

If someone would like to collaborate (adding better cut out faces, resizing, fixing collars, removing snow or adding asian players) is very welcome.

nice addition. too bad i have 180k players in game and about 80 per cent are regens so i see same faces quite often. even in my own squad. hope you will get new pics soon.

180k players!? Wow that must take you forever to complete a season.

Thinking of maybe taking a look into extended this myself since I have a bit of time before uni starts and the mrs gets back from her homeland haha. But am wondering how exactly this works, can I add cut out faces to the xmls already in the file?

I would say yes, but to be honest i haven't added new faces, i mean, i have just replaced the original ones. So if you want to expand it, I think it is the same process of adding new hair for the regens, meaning more lines in the xml.

Great addition, although it's funny when a 15 year old regen looks like a 27 year old man!

yes I agree but when you play the game for a few seaons you get the reverse too...a 30 year old with a face of a kid(unless you get the facepacks updated)..its a great addition to the game though hope it can be added to in fm14 to get rid of baldy regens

This is still working on FM14, same installation steps, no updates for the moment though.

Very disapointed with the lack of improvement in the regen players from SI :C

i totally agree..they dont look human and nothing...so everytime i get new regens in my team or buy some regen i made him a real human random face,cuz then game looks so much more better and realistic...

it would be so much better if they put some random faces from real people into the game as regens...

but atleast if they are computer generated faces with todays tehnology they can look so much more real!

I agree. If maybe to buy or collect thousands or hundreds of standard human faces is too expensive for SI to consider, I think a best solution would be to use a software capable of mixing up a stock of faces features (eyes, noses, hair, etc). Altough these frankesteins regens could look odd, they will look better because they will be based on real faces, not computarized ones.

This file has to date around 2000 downloads, so i think maybe we are a minority to SI to consider us, but the game would be so much enjoyable in the long run than now with an improvement in this area, and it doesn't seem to be very expensive at first sight.

Up until FM11 (ish, may have been earlier) there was 'Face in the Game', where players were invited to send in their face pictures for use as Regens. It was stopped because people were abusing the facility, leaving SI staff to have to sift through hundreds of pictures of trees/porn/goats/elderly people to find usable ones.

As usual, the morons spoil things for the rest.

Why do so many people hate the facegen images so much?

Facegen in FM is poorly utilised.

Im not sure if you have seen it, but facegen on Out of the Park Baseball is great. It uses facegen for current players and looks good. When you have a mixture of real pics and facegen it looks poor. It would be good if FM could do facegen pics for players like OOTP does. It would also look good when players move and use their new teams strip (OOTP does close up of face only or a zoomed out view with part of the uniforms showing).

I personally don't mind them. The pictures of people wouldn't match their age either plus wouldn't they have to be reused again and again?

when you have now your 16 year old youth player picture...and when he is 30 years old later and you still have that 16 year old picture..isnt that the same?......

yeah maybe they would but if you make a pack out of 50.000+ faces it would be rarely reused

Will these work in conjunction with the RELEASE] OLT Expanded Hair Pack v4.0 ??

This is a regen replacement, so this will replace the regen faces. As the olt pack works on regen faces, I don't think so.

you can add extra faces to pack ....but think you have to change config file also,

I have tried this pack and although it's awesome there's a problem with some of the images being from old man and so it gets tricky looking into a 16 year old player with a face of a 60 year old man.

Does this still work?

I did it, but only the hair was removed from my regens, , not replaced with the real faces.

Now, I have a bunch of bald reenagers.... :(

Mmmmmhhhhhh.

Any Idea why it doesn't work for me? Does it only work when new regens are created?

Anyways, now all my guys are bald, which is even worse.

it works for me........you did change the hair file before starting game??(and remember if there are updates/or you verify the game it will revert to the original file) bald regens are a pain but I just create my own facepack file and replace them with real images during the game

I just installed this and thought I should reply for anyone trying in the future.

You have to clear your cache for it to work. My players were bald when I restarted, but if you go into preferences and then interface you can click the clear cache button. When you restart again your regens will have real faces.

LOL wtf .. one of my younger players looks a 70 year old man xD .. ?!
you can replace that pic with another, easily done and this pack is far better than the default ''false '' player face images those older pics are great for agents/scouts/managers etc that get generated by the game

how do you get this to work with a saved game?

I think I'm doing something wrong as I now have the old regens but without any hair

The instruction in OP is pretty straightforward.

Installation:

-Backup your hair folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2013\data\facegen\hair

-Delete it and extract the new hair folder there

-Regen faces should be replaced upon loading the game

This definitely works. I'm sure because I was doing this yesterday.
