Installation instructions

This mega-pack takes unpacked space of about 5.24 GB. After extracting you'll need the same space of course.
You have to download all 12 parts first! Then just open part 1 and extract the folders to your graphics-folder within your user folder (My Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 20xx > graphics).

Step 1
Extract part 1 to a temporary folder.
In order to extract you will need either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac.

Step 2
Cut and paste the extracted folder to:
Win Vista/Windows 7: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics
Win 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics
Win 98/ME: C:\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/graphics

Create the folder "graphics" if it doesn't exist.

Step 3
Run Football Manager 2012 and go to: Preferences > Display and Sound
Make sure that you tick the check box on the page called 'Always Reload Skin on Confirm' and un-tick then box saying 'Use Skin Cache'. Hit Confirm.
There should be a box that pops up saying 'loading image data for the new skin'. Once this is done your graphics should be working within the game.
