Football Manager 2017 Facepacks - FM Scope Facepack 2017
Our scope style facepack includes over 90,700 faces of players, staff and referees for all playable leagues on Football Manager 2017.
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 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 90,730 faces and takes up 4,41 GB of space

Redistribution Policy

You are welcome to share this pack on other sites.

Download Options

Currently the "Download Now" big red button points to a mirror. However, they have recently introduced some strange limits with downloads to certain countries, so it might not work well for everyone.

Download The Torrent File

If you're not familiar with torrents, it's best to avoid it.
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

  1. Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.

  2. Move the extracted folder "Scope Faces Megapack 2017" to:
    Regular FM:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\faces\
    FM Touch:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager Touch 2017\graphics\faces\
    Create the folders "graphics" and "faces" if they don't exist.

  3. 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 packs

To 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.
