FM 2018 Misc Graphics - Football Manager 2018 Backgrounds Megapack
Starting from this year, I am responsible for the backgrounds megapack. Initialy DazS8’s project, he hand it down to me when he had to leave the community for personal matters. Since ManagerOnline has evolved a lot, few changes have been made (~100). A monthly update will be offered for this megapack. If you run into any mistake, or if you would like to suggest an improvement on an existing image, let me know by commenting. I am listening to the community in order to make this pack yours.

For many years DazS8 have wanted to make a large pack using the many backgrounds by himself and others. Well here it is, got to be a must for every FM fan a super pack full of quality images to enhance your gaming experience. All have the correct xml/config files to work correctly and I have fully tested the whole pack with no problems. Certain backgrounds will show on certain screens…. City pack images will show on all Club screens. Stadiums will show on all Team screens, etc.

What's in the pack?

STADIUMS (overview)

Thousands of backgrounds all in one very impressive pack.

    @Vulrak: I did several tests. The Backgrounds I see only with the " FM original" default skin. I can not see them instead with "light" or "dark" skin.
  • mienos's avatar
    @Vulrak: I tried the default skin, the Wannachup skin, and the Wannachup Instant Result. All in window mode. I correctly see logos and faces cut out, but these backgrounds I can not see them in any way!

    @Bellamy : no, next update arround december 1st

    @mienos : it's ok for an other skin ?

    @kramerica : red button, once redirected to ManagerOnline, go down until you see the red frame "If you already have the 2017 pack, download only this update for FM18."

    Hi @Vulrak, thank you very much for your work.
    I downloaded the package a few days ago, have you made changes in the last few hours?

    IMPORTANT : If you already have the 2017 pack, I have set up a link to make only the changes. Excuse me for not having done it before.

    @Wolverine78 : Thanks

    @jordanmillward_1, @drjonze : Yes, I will take the pack entirely to make the images homogeneous and in high quality. Do not hesitate to propose me modifications with images if you want. I do not know everyone in the game :D

    @giacomobigoni : I'll see what I can do

    Hi @Vulrak, thanks for the great work. I have last year's megapack with all the updates. To avoid downloading it again, can you post a file with just the new updates? DF11 and CutOut do the same with the faces megapacks and it works amazing. Thank you very much
  • drjonze's avatar
    @Vulrak Thanks for keeping this going, it really adds a lot to the game. I'd like to suggest that you take a look at the background for Celtic Park and Celtic, I think they could be better. Also, most of Liverpool's best young players are missing.
  • jordanmillward_1's avatar
    Will you be adding more images? Players like Danny Ward, Ben Woodburn, Trent Alexander-Arnold, etc, are all missing backgrounds, and most transferred players still have their old backgrounds (like Salah is in Roma gear, Oxlade-Chamberlain in Arsenal gear, etc).

    Thanks for the great work you put in for the community., this pack makes my game feel complete.
  • Vulrak's avatar
    @kartalinho Last year's pack with a hundred change. This pack will be improved, the images will be in progress in high quality to avoid the distortion on the various resolutions
  • kartalinho's avatar
    Is a update include in this file for 2018 or is this just a complete files from 2017
    as basic for the coming updates ?
  • Bendito's avatar
    Corbys, one of the files is called ‘manager’. Open it and follow the instructions.

    Thanks for the amazing pack!
    However, I do have one issue - the background image on my 'home' and 'inbox' screens is showing as an unrelated club image (appears to be a piece of groundkeepers equipment) on all of my saves. How can I fix this?
