How to Import Logos, Kits and Face packs into Football Manager 2019 Touch (iOS)

Recommended Posts

Copied over from the post I made on reddit. 

First and foremost, this is not my work but more a summary and compilation of the steps involved. Most of the steps I took was taken from [here] (https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/38013/how-to-add-kit-logo-and-face-packs-to-fm2018-touch-on-ios-on-ipad?page=3)

 

For the logos and such, you can get it from FMscout.com or FMMvibe.com.

 

First things first though, get this [skin] (http://www.mediafire.com/file/ytg68z675wv55rn/fmt19ios_patch4graphics_v0.1.zip). You probably can use other skins but I haven't tried it yet.

 

Step 1 - Delete and Reinstall your Football Manager Touch on your iOS. You will need a fresh installation for this to work optimally. So save your games and formation to the cloud via cross-sync or export out your saves if possible.

 

Step 2 - Run your FMT19 game on your ipad and then close it completely (swipe it off) once it has loaded to the Main Menu screen. This steps ensures that the folders are generated for the game in your iPad.

 

Step 3 - On your laptop or PC, create a graphics folder and a skins folder. Export out your downloaded logos, kits, faces to the graphics folder and the skins to the skins folder

 

Step 4 - Plug your iPad into your laptop/PC and run iTunes. Go to your iPad device and click on File-sharing. Highlight Football Manager Touch. You should see a bunch of folders on the right hand side of iTunes.

 

Step 5 - On your laptop/PC, drag and drop the graphics and skins folder into iTunes (where the bunch of folders were). Do not use the Add File option as that would not allow for mass importing of the various graphics and skins. (Note: the importing process will take some time. Also, ensure you have enough space in your iPad for whatever it is you are importing). Once all is done, unplug your iPad from your laptop/PC.

 

Step 6 - Run FMT19 on your iPad. Go to Preferences, Overview tab, Interface. You should see the Skin and there will be 10skins: 5 dark and 5 retro from the list. Choose any new skin and make sure the Author does NOT say "Sports Interactive" (it should be Reload Dark - 1 or some other number). Confirm. The game should ask you to restart FMT19 on your iPad then.

 

Step 7 - Run FMT19 once again, the game will likely take a little while to load. This is due to the game reading the new graphics that you have imported in. The more you import, the longer the initial load time. Need not worry though as this is only for the first load. Subsequently it should load normally.

 

Step 8 - Re-download your saved games and enjoy.

 

I hope the steps I listed is clear enough. I decided to compile these with instructions as clearly as possible because I did get confused by the steps listed from looking around. I had failed my first attempt but managed to get it working properly by my second attempt on my iPad Mini. I started out with just the logos only though. Will try with face packs and more in the future.

 

PS: Please feel free to correct me if there is any mistake that I may have made in the steps listed.

Can you provide a screenshot to the skin? As far as I was aware, downloaded skins didn't work in FMT

The skins I used in the link aren't exactly any different from the base version. From what it looks like to me, the skin is there simply to help the game load the graphics since the Interface on the FMT version doesn't give you the option to clear cache and reload graphics. 

 

I've not tried any other actual skins so I'm not sure if it can work on FMT.

On Android, the cache can be cleared via a file manager.

Not sure sure about IOS so perhaps that is why this skin exists, i.e. the option is available to clear the cache via settings? Would be nice to have verified

Nope. iOS versions do not have the option to clear the cache. So the skin exists to act as something like a conduit to enable the other files to be loaded.
