    Hello ppl

    can someone seed this pack please... i'm stuck at 63% for almost two days....

    Hey faltinas, thanks for using the DF11 faces.
    I'm seeding the megapack almost all day long.
    Unfortunately many people 'hit and run'.

    As u can see in your torrent app, many people are downloading the megapack atm.
    Let's hope they keep seeding for a while :)

    This week we'll hope to release the next MASSIVE update.
    This update will include the COMPLETE Swedish Allsvenskan league and some lower Swedish teams. (2013-2014)

    There will be also a nice Spanish update for the Primera División and some Eastern Europe teams.
    Hope to release it this friday (17 may)
  • mkarmy101's avatar
    Ok that's fine, thanks for the help. I'll use a downloaded skin from now on.
  • necjeff's avatar
    @ mkarmy101

    U'r right.
    Forgot to say, that in FM2013 it only works with downloaded skins, and not in the standard ingame/inbuild FM2013 skins.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Other info:

    Another thing to know is that it is quite possible that some faces just don't show up, and another day they will just work fine.....

    For instant:
    although these teams do have facepacks, some people had it this year with Real Sociedad from Spain.
    In FM2012 AA Gent from Belgium had the same problem.

    It's an average thing all facepacks do have since FM2012.
  • mkarmy101's avatar
    Thanks for the response @necjeff

    I have downloaded a skin before and can see the default faces where you said they would be. I replaced the default 'male' and 'female' pictures with the ones from your pack I downloaded. It worked brilliantly.

    However, I don't use that skin. I use the built-in "FM13 Dark" skin and I can't find that skin folder on my disk drive. This leaves me with two questions:

    Do I have to use a downloaded skin for these default faces to work?
    Or is it possible to find the FM13 Dark skin folder to change these normal faces?

    Thanks, and your English is good by the way :-)

    Tedlinn:
    So here's the problem:
    My DF11 megapack allows me to play around and update the faces of real players, from the game's initial database, but not those of regens.

    So if for instance I add this line to the config:
    <record from="57050464" to="graphics/pictures/person/57050464/portrait"/> it will make the player associated with that ID have the portrait in the picture name (57050464.png).
    But the player 57050464 is Nicusor Stanciu, a real in game player from the original database.
    However, the same doesn't seem to apply when I use the ID of a regen player.
    So I created my own 260x310 png and named it properly and tried going for:
    <record from="1394715547" to="graphics/pictures/person/1394715547/portrait"/>
    But I still get the auto-generated picture for that ID/player.

    I feel like I should mention the following:
    Is there a possibility that the "panels" file makes it so when there is an autogenerated picture already in place, it ignores the instructions in the config file?
    Also, it may have to do with my skin ( using the Steklo X3 ).
    All the other graphic mods (kits, stadiums, logos, original DF11 pack) are working fine.

    So the problem is that u cant get the faces visible which u made by yourself for regen players.....

    In the post below (mkarmy101) i mentioned the importantce of the order of folders in your FM 'graphics' folder.

    - Call your folder "all regens" and put all the png faces u made in it.
    Give your regen PNG faces the same name as the player ID in your FM game.

    Add a new config file in that folder. ( i advice to generate a new config file by using the FMxml programm - DOWNLOAD HERE)

    This "All regens" folder will now come up front of your DF11 Megapack, so FM will read this folder first, b4 it will read the data in your DF11 Megapack folder.

    Now it will use the 'regen faces' that u made/added.
    Hope it solved the problem.

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    Hope i understood the real problem now, and could help u to solve it.

    If u really dont have a clue how to make a config file by yourself, u can always PM me, and ask to make some regen faces including a config file.

    mkarmy101:
    Hi @necjeff
    Great work on the megapack itself, but I have downloaded the Default DF11 Faces pack, which you posted in these comments on 2012-12-02. Unfortunately it doesn't work, even after following the instructions and trying many different things. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "search for the default folder in the used skin, and delete it. (save a copy)". I would be grateful for any help on how to get it to work.

    Hey mkarmy, i tried to imagine what the problem can be and hope that the following instructions/hints-tips will solve your problem.

    - I donno in what range your D11 Default pack stands in your Football Manager "graphics" folder.

    It is usefull to know that FM reads the folder in order of alphabet.
    (And it reads numbers first before letters)

    So if a folder is called "All Faces" and the following folder is called "Default Faces", then FM will use the instructions of the first folder that it reads. (in this case the folder called "All Faces")

    If u place a number in front of the name of the packs u can sort in what order FM must read the folders in your graphics folder.

    In case of the default faces u can try to rename the folder into "1.Default faces"

    FM will read that folder first, because it will now stands up front in your graphics folder.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    - What i mean with "search for the default folder in the used skin, and delete it" is:

    Some skins have integrated default faces, and they wont allow FM to use the other default faces (like the DF11 defaults) before they are removed.

    U will find these default faces often in the SKINNMAME/graphics/pictures/players - folder of the skin u are using in FM.

    By deleting the default faces(folder) in that skin and place our DF11 Default folder in your regular 'graphics' FM folder, it all should work fine.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    I know.. it's more information then u saked for. But i hope u (and all other FM addicteds) will understand how FM reads the data.

    I tried to explane it in the easiest way i can, although English isn't my home-language.

    Hi necjeff,

    Thank you for the fast reply. I really appreciate it.

    I think I need to give your more details because I have all these awesome pics for my real players and dumbass regens look like shit still and I can't cope with that :)

    So here's the problem:

    My DF11 megapack allows me to play around and update the faces of real players, from the game's initial database, but not those of regens.

    So if for instance I add this line to the config:
    <record from="57050464" to="graphics/pictures/person/57050464/portrait"/> it will make the player associated with that ID have the portrait in the picture name (57050464.png).
    But the player 57050464 is Nicusor Stanciu, a real in game player from the original database.
    However, the same doesn't seem to apply when I use the ID of a regen player.
    So I created my own 260x310 png and named it properly and tried going for:
    <record from="1394715547" to="graphics/pictures/person/1394715547/portrait"/>

    Also, it may have to do with my skin ( using the Steklo X3 ).
    All the other graphic mods (kits, stadiums, logos, original DF11 pack) are working fine.

    In the end, I'd like to mention that I can't tell you how much I appreciate your work. Don't forget about setting up a donation page or something, you may be surprised how many people wanna virtually buy someone a coffee for making their game experience more enjoyable.

    Cheers!

    Hi @necjeff

    Great work on the megapack itself, but I have downloaded the Default DF11 Faces pack, which you posted in these comments on 2012-12-02. Unfortunately it doesn't work, even after following the instructions and trying many different things. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "search for the default folder in the used skin, and delete it. (save a copy)". I would be grateful for any help on how to get it to work.

    @Tedlinn:

    Thanks for your comment Tedlinn. :)

    Updating the config file isn't that hard as u see ;)

    About the regen faces.
    Donno if i exactly understand what u ment in your comment, but maybe our "Regen pack" can be usefull.

    Some time ago we made a "Regen pack" sorted by age.
    We used portrait-photo's from other sports wich can be used to fill the empty space of players without a face. Such as new youth players or staffmembers wich we couldnt find photo's for.

    U can download the "Regen pack" HERE!
    (install instructions added to download)
  • Tedlinn's avatar
    Hi,

    First of all, thanks a lot for this, quality stuff.

    Question:
    So I've found that if you edit the config file and just add a line such as:
    <record from="30035411" to="graphics/pictures/person/30035411/portrait"/> (where the unique ID is assigned to a non-regen) you can add pics of your own. (such as I did for Nicusor Stanciu for instance).

    However, the same thing doesn't seem to apply for regens. It'd be so cool if one could slap a picture they like on a regen. Even tried unchecking "show pictures of generated players and staff" but that just takes away the picture entirely.

    Any idea of a workaround for this?

    Also, @necjeff:
    Dude, awesome job. I was trying to find a donation option somewhere. I would seriously consider making it possible for people to toss some beer money your way. And I'm guessing a number of other people feel the way. Anyway, if there is an option to donate in order to support the product somehow, let me (and everybody else) know.

    Cheers!

    Hi guys I need an panel mod for Mac because that one above os only valid for Windows. I tried to download it but not accepted.
  • TomGS20's avatar
    Yeah it was my fault. I didn't even unzip the config file :D
    It's working fine now, thanks!
    Brilliant face-pack if anyone it thinking about it, absolutely brilliant!
  • TomGS20's avatar
    Necjeff,

    Thanks for replying, I guess it's the config file, because it always only put the pictures in. I'll use config 30.
  • necjeff's avatar
    @TomGS20

    Hey m8, Thanks for using the Df11 facepacks :)

    Did u place all updatefolders in megapack 1, or just the pictures/faces?

    U must only place the faces in your megapack 1 folder and overwrite when asked.

    After that u place the latest config file (delivered by update 29) in your megapack 1.

    The last think to do is restart your FM game, and it will all work fine. ;)

    Enjoy!
  • TomGS20's avatar
    Necjeff/other creators,

    I have downloaded every single update for this D11 facepack, put them all in the megapack 1 folder and put them in the Football Manager folder but mine isn't working? It used to work perfectly, but I think one of the updates messed it up. Am I only supposed to have one config file, too? If you can give any support it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, Tom.

    @Carlcon

    Hi Carlcon,

    Donno what u mean with "fully stocked" but alomost all first team players of the premier league are having a recent face from this season, or last season.
    Besides i'm pretty sure that a lot of second team players are also having a face.

    The teams u named, like QPR, Norwich & Southampton are complete with faces in my game.

    So i think your game isnt up2date. We are over 50.000 DF11 faces atm.

    - Do u have the latest updates?
    Update 16 - 25 are available for download above in the opening post.
    Update 26 & 27 arent in that list yet, but u can find them below this post and download them also.

    - Did u place all faces in 1 megapack? (look at the "install instructions" in the opening post)
    U make 1 folder with all the faces in it, and after merging the faces together,
    u have to replace the config file by the latest/newest one.

    The newest config file is always added to the latest update pack.
    U can find the latest config file in update 27 or download it here.

    Gl and have fun :)
  • carlcon's avatar
    I'm confused. Over 44,000 faces, and yet half the Premier League are missing.

    I understand a lot of work goes into these things, but surely the likes of QPR, Southampton, and Norwich are worthy of having their teams fully stocked?
