Step 6 - Open the config file and copypaste the new ID ''r-2002XXXXXX'' two times. The line looks like this :
<record from="r-2002112149" to="graphics/pictures/person/r-2002112149/portrait"/>.
Step 7 - Every time a new face is added to the folder you will need to copy and paste into the config to create a new line and replace the IDs
Step 8 - Save config file, open the game, clear cache and reload skin.
If you do it once it will become a very easy and quick process.
FOR EXISTING CONFIG FILE - TO MAKE FACES REWORK FOR 24.2 Update
Step 1- Download Notepad++.
Step 2- Open config file inside your newgen faces folder with Notepad++ (use this as the main tool for this kind of files, instead just windows Notepad. Change it with right click and open with...then select Notepad++ and tick the box ''use always this app to open .xml'' (or something like that for every language).Click OK and from now the XLM files like configs always opens with Notepad++
Step 3 - You have now open the config file with Notepad++. At the top of your screen select search/find. a new smaller box opens. Click on Replace. Now you have to write in ''Find what :'' the number 200 and in ''Replace with'' r-200. Now click on ''Replace All''.
This automatically replace every ID to the right way. You can also try the same method but not with 200. ''Find what:'' for ''person/'' and ''replace all'' with ''person/r-''.
Step 4 - Now you need to rename every photo in your ''newgens faces'' folder from 2002XXXXXX to r-2002XXXXXX.
Download Bulk Rename Utility install the app and open it. Search for your newgens faces folder, most common path is Windows - Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2024/graphics/newgen faces or whatever you named the folder, click actions/select all and replace again ''200'' with ''r-200''. Hit Rename at bottom right button, click OK in the ''warning box'' and all your photos now are matching with the ID's inside the config file.
Step 5 - Open FM, go to preferences,cllear cache and reload your skin.
NOTES : Mainly newgens ID's starts with 200. If you use the faces for real players/staff *(black shadow pictures in game are real humans with differrent kind of ID's) you have to rename ID's and photos in the same way but maybe manually.
All you need is the steps above. Same method possibly works for NewGan tool. SI Foroum, Zealands Discord and Newgan main article may helps you better here.
YOU DONT NEED TO DOWNLOAD AGAIN MY PACKS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THEM. I DIDNT CHANGE ANYHTING IN MY LINKS FOR 24.2
Instructions for use with NewGan manager tool and other facepacksTo use faces from both mods with the NewGan Manager, users will need to -
1. Download this facepack and FMUGens facepack (and the updates if you want them).
1a. Download NewGan from fmscout
2. Put the "FMUGens MEGAPACK" folder into graphics -> faces (create "faces" folder if you don't have one). Delete the config.xml provided with FMUGens.
You will not use the config.xml file from either mod, you will be creating your own with NewGan Manager.
3. Drag the individual photos from this mod into their respective Nationality folders provided in the "FMUGens MEGAPACK" download.
Example: Photos from this mods Africans folder into FMUGens Africans folder, photos from this mods Asians folder into FMUGens Asians folder, ect.
4. Do the usual in-game NewGan .rtf file setup and creation.
Heres a Tutorial on that if you've never used NewGan
NewGan requires a shortlist to be made in-game with with a certain view and filter. Both are included in the NewGan download. This tutorial video walks you through it.
Once you have created the .rtf file in-game, launch NewGan and you will be directing it to the "FMUGens MEGAPACK" folder. You will also direct it to the .rtf file you just created.
Then run NewGan just how you normally would, or how that tutorial instructs you too.
The application will now use photos from both mods when creating the config.xml because they are in the same folder! The config.xml file gets crated in the "FMUGens MEGAPACK" folder.
To use NewGan with FMUGens file structure you will NEED TO RENAME TWO FOLDERS IN THE FMUGen MEGAPACK folder.
Rename South America folder to South American
Rename Scandinavia folder to Scandinavian
You can double check if it worked by opening the newly created config.xml in the "FMUGens MEGAPACK" folder. Search the document and see if there are file names from both mods being used in the config.
Example: I moved the files from this mods "Mixed Races" folder into FMUGens "Italmed" folder. When searching the newly created config I see both files names being used, eg. "UP2ITALMED136" and "mix15".
Ex: <record from="Italmed/mix15" to="graphics/pictures/person/r-2002122611/portrait"/>
<record from="Italmed/UP2ITALMED136" to="graphics/pictures/person/r-2002092962/portrait"/>
I hope this helps. Creating your first .rtf file In-Game with the views and filters mentioned in the tutorial video can be confusing at first, but becomes very easy after you do it a couple times.
Just create an unemployed manager in your current save, go to Player Search, and use that tutorial video to create your first .rtf shortlist. Once you are finished with everything, you can reload your most recent save to get rid of the unemployed manager. You can download this instructions here
