FM 2018 Misc Graphics - Football Manager 2018 Backgrounds Megapack (UPDATE 01)
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.

An update is available for the largest Backgrounds Packs (RED BUTTON TOO)

What's in the pack?

STADIUMS (overview)

Thousands of backgrounds all in one very impressive pack.

Changelist Update 01 :
-All changes are in high resolutions (1920*1080px)
-New default image, finished lawn mower
-New default mini stadiums images
-Rework main world competitions and the 5 major championships images
-Rework confederations images

    hello. I don't can download. Why???
  • RaulReal's avatar
    Dear Vulrak, when will be Your next promised update:)?
  • Aron Axe's avatar


    Just an error that not appear like Windows notification during transfer data between HDDs, there were not transferred some last folders, including the most important for me, Stadium overview folder.

    I tried also Andromeda skin, but the same problem, first place for photo on Stadium panel, has the same default photo, so question, Where may appear photos of stadiums from the folder of each nation? mini stadium folder appear properly. Maybe some error in paths in config.xml files?
    In FM 17 were no problems.

    Great work guys! One question, Is this megapack compatible with Flut skin? that no appear in compatibility description, I ask because I have some little issues with appearing first photo on Stadium panel that doesn't appear, instead the mini stadium photo, appear normally on second place for that. Someone have same problem like me? It's a shame because, FLut skin is the most downloaded skin like Vulrak megapack, both great works.
    In FM17 all worked normally.

    Ps: Sorry for bad english, I'm a foreigner. Greetings from Italian League

    Hey men, Nice work !!

    I download and extract Update 01. But a lot of Players they are the Backround Picture is lost. Like all La Liga , german Bundesliga players, Frange league Players and more.
  • Vulrak's avatar
    Strange SpadeXII, with the update 01 it should be set. Try to install it again or I'll give you a fix. Empty your cache. Refill your skin.

    For Update 02, there will be a little delay. I took part in FMWEC and it took me a long time.

    This is the picture.

    Hello Vulrak, impressive job!! But I have a common, as I see, problem. Even though I have the update 01 I have this old mower can you actually tell us which picture is it to change it with another??[img][/img]
  • shashikiran's avatar
    Teknik Direktör install update 1 and try even for me it was displaying lawn mower now its been changed
  • Vulrak's avatar
    There was a bad email address. it's not .fr but .com: [email protected]

    @Teknik Direktör: For the lawn mower, the update 01 removed it logically but Leeds had an image already.

    @Hungers: yes sometimes depending on the connection it has a little trouble. For FM19 I would make another system more efficient.
  • Teknik Direktör's avatar
    There is a old lawn mower picture in Leeds United's background. it looks bad. Old Picture was better. Please change it in next update.
  • Hungers's avatar
    Fixed now don't worry
  • Hungers's avatar
    Whenever I try to download the pack it says the download time is about 8 hours and then after a few minutes the download cancels. I don't think it's a problem with my internet as it's pretty good. Can anyone help?
  • Si Supersonic's avatar
    Hi - Yes that is what l have done, after running with the original one. Good to see players in their up to date kits in the background
  • Vulrak's avatar
