FM 2017 Misc Graphics - Football Manager Backgrounds Super Pack
Welcome to the biggest and best backgrounds pack available.
For many years I have wanted to make a large pack using the many backgrounds by myself 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 Cub screens.
Stadiums will show on all Team screens, etc.

What's in the pack?

COMPETITIONS
CLUB STADIUMS
CITY PACK
MINI STADIUM PACK (fmc/fmt)
CONFEDERATIONS
STADIUMS (overview)
NATIONAL STADIUMS
NATIONAL FLAGS
PLAYER BACKGROUNDS

Thousands of backgrounds all in one very impressive pack.
Files have all been converted to jpg to reduce the size but for the amount you get here it was always going to be large.

PACK SIZE: 8,52 GB (Red Button)

    @Vulrak Thank you very much.
  • GiorgosAth's avatar
    No backgrounds appear. All packs downloaded and installed. I use Football Manager Dark skin. Is there a compatibility issue?
  • batiron's avatar
    Thank you for the pack first, it is really AMAZING!!!
    But I got a issue regarding adding photos created by myself.
    For the mini picture rotating with the mini stadium, known as `Stadium Overview`, I found that Barcelona`s Camp Nou is `none` in default. I added a picture by myself, and confirm that its ID (i got the ingame editor) is 1040. It is already in the xml (config) file.
    <record from="1040" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/1040/background"/>
    However, there is still nothing known in the game after I cleared cache and reloaded skin... Could any brother kindly give a piece of advice for me?

  • GiorgosAth's avatar

  • vecac2's avatar
    @pikawa @Vulrak
    That solved it! Thanks a lot!
  • Vulrak's avatar
    @pikawa thank so much, I was going to "club overview panel.xml" but I didn't look anymore, I'm going to sleep yesterday ^^
  • pikawa's avatar
    @Vulrak, vecac2, club overview panel by default supports only "Vitrex City Pictures" pack BUT if You want to use any other pack (like this one) You need to edit club overview panel.xml (/panels/club/) a bit. Just find and replace this:

    <widget class="picture" id="lftB" file="pictures/logos/background/default/right" image_alignment="centre_x,centre_y" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="mbpc" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="file" />
    </record>
    </widget>

    with this:

    <widget class="background" file="backgrounds" id="bgnd" image_alignment="centre_x,centre_y" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="bgnd" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="file" />
    </record>
    </widget>
