FM19: Managers Background Pack

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've finally completed this project, all are 2560x1600 at 227px, which is basically MacBook retina size, so the quality is superb. It's 880 pictures strong (around 220mb in file size) but I am however happy to update this over time, likewise if you notice any errors or any additions you'd like please let me know and I'll correct them. 

Steps to add to your game;

1. Download here

2. Unzip and place here: ‎⁨ ▸ ⁨Documents⁩ ▸ ⁨Sports Interactive⁩ ▸ ⁨Football Manager 2019⁩ ▸ ⁨graphics⁩ ▸ ⁨backgrounds⁩ ▸ ⁨managers⁩

3. Go to preferences and click "Reload Skin"

Please note: For these to work you'll need to use a custom transparent skin, or the Base Skins. There is a Background Mod here too if needed.

If you'd like to use the transparent panels from my screenshots, then;

1. Download my background and background fade folders here

2. Unzip and place here: ‎⁨‎

Hi all,

I’ve been working on a project of adding manager pictures to the background of various football managers throughout the game, I’ve been doing this for my own personal use, just for the leagues I load up on my saves, and never shared anything like this before but happy to share if allowed and people are interested. Background images are just from Google search, aspect-ratio-scaled down to 1500x1000, good quality and compressed to their smallest file size without loss of any quality.

You obviously need to use a transparent skin to be able to view these in game.

So far, as of December 2018, I’ve done manager backgrounds for the following leagues (around 650 pictures in total):

 

BRAZIL:

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A (Complete)

 

CHINA:

Chinese Super League (Complete)

 

ENGLAND:

Premier League (Complete)

Championship (Complete)

League One (Complete)

League Two (Complete)

Vanarama League (Complete)

 

FRANCE:

Ligue 1 (Complete)

 

GERMANY:

Bundesliga (Complete)

 

GREECE:

Superleague (Complete)

 

INTERNATIONAL:

A random bunch of random international managers so far (Complete)

 

ITALY:

Serie A (Complete)

 

NETHERLANDS:

Eredivisie (Complete)

 

PORTUGAL:

Primeira Liga (Complete)

 

RANDOM:

I’ve added a few random backgrounds of ex-players that are now coaches/managers; Maradona, Van Nistelrooy, Carrick etc… (Complete)

 

RUSSIA:

Premier League (Complete)

 

SCOTLAND:

Premiership (Complete)

Championship (Complete)

 

SPAIN:

La Liga (Complete)

 

TURKEY:

Super Lig (Complete)

 

UNEMPLOYED:

A random bunch of unemployed, high-profile managers that are likely to be re-employed (Complete)

 

UKRAINE:

Ukrainian Premier League  (Complete)

 

USA:

MLS (Complete)

 

Couple of examples below:

Nearly done with this now, should be ready for release by the weekend, just a couple of pointers...

• Anyone know of a good, free file hosting site for this file?

• Anyone got any managers not listed above that want adding before I release the pack?

just to let you know mate the first link gives you this

6b8e7443c9a93242d07a3260e6f308be.png

which would mean having to download each pic individually rather than the whole file

this looks like a great addition to the game many thanks for your time and effort it is appreciated

Am I correct in assuming that all these will only work in FM19 but not on FMT?

I'm not 100% sure, I only play on FM19 on Mac.

stevemc. it seems that the managers do not work in FMT. Not to worry. However I would like to have the 'long team names' for FMT if you are able to do them and have them downloaded using Mediafire please.

Nice background Steve...I think only problem might be a lot of us use Dazs8 mega background pack and he put manager backgrounds in with the player backgrounds but he used their unique numbers where as you have used their names in your pack so yours won't show if the managers background is in Dazs if you know what i mean

The game will load the folders alpha numerically, if you have this first it will use Dazs after to fill in any it hasnt found and then the default for none

I put that in because it was something different - the rest of the managers all do the same generic things :D

Think I put Marcello Lippi smoking a cigar in there too :D

Great stuff man, I didn't know that was possible to associate backgrounds with individual staff/players again, they had that removed long time ago, sadly :(

Good work on the update buddy. Just a note for next time, you have got the wrong background for Manuel Pellegrini. I it's the background of Mauricio Pellegrino.
