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?

STADIUMS (overview)

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)


The Backgrounds thanks list:
Kenneth Nielsen
Sudeep Dinakar

The City packs thanks list:
FLUT (of course)
luciano vietto,
A special thank you to Rune who had the original idea.

The FMC thanks list:
Nuno Rebelo

A massive thumbs up to all who contributed.If I missed anyone then accept my apologies.

    @vecac2 hum... strange, it's just for CFM skin, I will look at it
  • vecac2's avatar

    The backgrounds are fine, the small city pictures are the issue.

    EDIT: I didn't catch that you were asking me the same question as the guy above, i do have both the torrent and the updates installed. Not the bonus update though but 1-10 are all installed.

    my bad @fradesa, have tou DL superpack with red button or only Updates ? You need superpack first.

    @vecac2 same ?

    @trigga i will see what i can do
  • trigga's avatar
    please can you upload on mega or mediafire? My wifi doesnt allow me to download the torrent
  • vecac2's avatar

    EDIT: Just to be perfectly clear, I don't mean the background, but the small picture of the city under it's name.
  • Vulrak's avatar
    @vecac2 you have v1.0.1D or v2.1D ?
  • vecac2's avatar

    First of all, thank you for this pack.
    I am, however, experiencing an issue using CFM skin, where the city picture on the club overview screen is the same for every club. The picture was already there with the CFM skin before i installed your pack.

    Hi @fradesa, all stadiums and cities are not present in the superpack. Updates are forthcoming to continue this project. Parma for example is not there.
  • fradesa's avatar
    @Vulrak Hey. My complete path is \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\pictures\ds8 backgrounds megapack.
    Now everything is ok (even the stadiums in background, f.e. in club's panel "General" of skin Andromeda).
    I still can't see the 2 photos of the stadiums in the Information panel. What can I do to solve the problem (anything about the ,xml file?)?
    Thank you so much.

    @holtenprod : You should ask the creator of the skin : pikawa
  • Vulrak's avatar
    @fradesa: In "graphics folder", you must have "players folder" for example, you have it?

    If no, check : Preferences> Interface> Appearance> Clear Cache
    Don't forgot : Untick: "Use cache ..." & Tick: "Reload Skin ..."
    Finaly, "Confirm" ...

    Hey! I'm using the CFM skin and I'm wondering whether it's possible for the city picture widget on the squad info screen to pull the picture from its own "city pics" folder instead of pulling it from the "stadium" backgrounds? In other words, not having just a miniature version of the background on the same page. Thanks for a great pack!
  • fradesa's avatar
    I've loaded all graphics (logos faces cities kits) and all have worked fine, but stadium backgrounds and mini stadiums don't appear.
    I've tried with various skins (default, andromeda normal and low res, flut, vitrex) and the whole rest of the pack is ok.
    My max resoultion is 1366x768, i have put the pack in \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics.
    What's the problem?
  • AlbionDaz's avatar
    Thanks so much,hoping game is uber,as spent most of day improving the game,so its nicer on the eye :)
  • Vulrak's avatar
    Yes it will be integrated soon. I have to finalize certain details before continuing the pack. If some are interested to help in the research of the modifications to make, do not hesitate to contact me
  • jeff44's avatar
    any chance Vulrak you could make the new Carabao Cup background please
  • DAZS8's avatar
    This pack has now been taken over by Vulrak......good luck m8 for the future
  • DAZS8's avatar
    Due to my impending retirement from the FM Community I am currently looking for someone to take over this pack and make it their own to update as they see fit.....interested let me know.
  • DAZS8's avatar
    Thanks tylerrr
  • tylerrr's avatar
    Just wanted to say thanks (again?) Daz. Easily the most important download for FM, amazing body of work and really spices up the game.
  • galo82's avatar

    Yeah, I followed the instructions exactly. I deleted all files and installed them again...starting with the main file and then each update in order. I did download the AIO file which includes updates 1-5...not sure if that is causing a problem or not. In any case, this second time around most city pictures are missing in my game that were there the first time. But the ones that were missing are now showing. Weirdest thing ever. I'm using the FLUT Light skin if that makes a difference. Just to be clear...all the correct folders and pictures are in the correct location. I can see them. But for whatever reason my game doesn't display them correctly.
  • DAZS8's avatar
    You have clearly done something wrong, either start again and follow instructions or wait for next pack to be released that will include all the updates anyway
  • galo82's avatar
    Hi Daz...I sent you a PM regarding the updates not appearing in the game. I appreciate any help. Thanks!
  • DAZS8's avatar
    out now!!
  • DAZS8's avatar
    There will be no more updates for this pack for now
    The next update will be a complete pack including all updates as a torrent file later in the year.
    One thing I ask is that if a READ ME file is included in an update then would you please read it, it would solve the problems some people seem to get.
    This is a very large pack and has had multiple contributors which may incur errors from time to time but we/I try to fix as and when anything is discovered.
    Please download and install all updates to get the full pack, trust me its worth it
    I would like to thank everyone who has helped make this pack so spectacular and also thank everyone for downloading.
