It's a sleek and modern circular portrait style in standard size of 180x180 pixels.
It is intended for use with FM 2017, but it will work with all versions of the game from FM09 onward.
This megapack was made possible in association with the amazing people who produce the DF11 facepacks. THANKS to necjeff for granting his permission to use their top notch collection as base for this megapack.
Scope style is originally created by fmscout.com and its production started in February 2012. The Scope faces collection has been repacked as one megapack and first became available on October 26th, 2016.
Scope Faces Megapack 2017 base pack contains a total of 85,690 faces and takes up 4,18 GB of space.
With the monthly update packs, the collection extends to 94,078 faces and takes up 4,55 GB of space
Redistribution PolicyYou are welcome to share this pack on other sites.
All we ask is to add link credit to this official page.
Currently the "Download Now" big red button points to a mega.nz mirror. However, they have recently introduced some strange limits with downloads to certain countries, so it might not work well for everyone.
But if you really want to get this pack via torrent AND help others get it as well, you need a torrent client. I personally recomment qBittorrent.
Please be kind enough to help with seeding once you download the pack, so that more people will be able to download it fast.
How to add the Scope Facepack to FM17
- Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.
- Move the extracted folder "Scope Faces Megapack 2017" to:
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\faces\
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager Touch 2017\graphics\faces\
Create the folders "graphics" and "faces" if they don't exist.
- Open Football Manager 2017 (or Touch) and go to Preferences > Interface.
Click the "Clear Cache" button. Return to the same screen.
Enable "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences".
Click the "Reload Skin" button.
There should be a box that pops up saying 'loading image data for the new skin'. Once this is done scope facepack should be working within the game.

How to install the update packsTo install November's update, extract the .zip file you downloaded and move all files inside the "Scope Faces - 2016 November Update" folder to your "Scope Faces Megapack 2017" folder. Overwrite the files it's asking you to, including the config.xml file (especially this one).
Then clear cache and reload skin from FM17 preferences as usual.
Repeat this process for all update packs.
How to make requestsI no longer have the luxury of time to be searching and converting pictures myself. So if you have a request, please find the pictures on your own, crop them in square shape of at least 178x178 pixels and name them after their unique IDs in-game. Then send me the files either via email or via private message. The pics that pass my criteria will get included in the next update pack.
CreditsScope style is created by Stam from fmscout.com but this megapack wouldn't be possible without the help from necjeff and his amazing team at DF11 Facepacks. Thank you Jeff!!
