Adding pictures to created players

Recommended Posts

After reading a couple of other threads about this issue i'm still no wiser. I am really really REALLY stupid when it comes to this stuff so i need a "Adding pictures to football manager 2009 for dummies" sort of guide/explanation.

I have 5 create players i wish to add pictures to, i haven't started a game yet as i want to get all this stuff sorted before i do to save time so can anyone help me with this?

its actually VERY simple...

create a folder inside your C:\documents and settings\...\Football Manager 2009\skins folder called Players... from here you can create sub folders, I called mine customs...

Get an image cropped to 180 x 180 pixels and save it as a standard .png

create a file called config.xml

place both these in your last folder whatever you called it.

in the config.xml paste this

<record>
<!-- resource manager options -->
<!-- don't preload anything in this folder -->
<boolean id="preload" value="false"/>
<!-- turn off auto mapping -->
<boolean id="amap" value="false"/>
<!-- picture mappings -->
<!-- the following XML maps pictures inside this folder into other positions
in the resource system, which allows this folder to be dropped into any
place in the graphics folder and still have the game pick up the graphics
files from the correct places
-->
<list id="maps">
<record from="NAME OF IMAGE" to="graphics/pictures/person/PERSON'S UNIQUE ID/portrait"/>
</list>
</record>

In the FM 09 in game Preferences go to Display & Sound, disable 'Use Skin Cache' and enable 'Always Reload Skin on Confirm'

If you've done this correctly, when u press confirm u should see your player image work!

Each player has a unique ID, if you put the unique ID into where I've written "PERSON'S UNIQUE ID" then it links the relevant image to it...

Hi i am stuggling to get this to work i have followed your steps and this is my config.xml file

<record>

<!-- resource manager options -->

<!-- dont preload anything in this folder -->

<boolean id="preload" value="false"/>

<!-- turn off auto mapping -->

<boolean id="amap" value="false"/>

<!-- picture mappings -->

<!-- the following XML maps pictures inside this folder into other positions

in the resource system, which allows this folder to be dropped into any

place in the graphics folder and still have the game pick up the graphics

files from the correct places

-->

<list id="maps">

<record from="1394631303MarcBroad" to="graphics/pictures/person/1394631303/portrait"/>

</list>

</record>

I have placed this in the graphics section of Football Manager 09, then into players faces where all my others are and then added a new file called custom as im not sure if it should go in with the team i have put him into. All adivce would be a great help?? Cheers
