FM 2016 Facepacks - Scope Faces Megapack 2016
Our scope style facepack includes over 82,500 faces of players, staff and referees for all playable leagues on Football Manager 2016.
It's a sleek and modern circular portrait style in standard size of 180 x 180 pixels.
It is intended for use with FM16, but it will work with all versions of the game from FM09 onward.

Scope style is originally created by and its production started in February 2012.

This megapack was made possible in association with the amazing people who produce the DF11 facepacks. THANKS to necjeff for granting his permission to use their top notch collection as base for this megapack.

Released: 4 November 2015
Updated: 17 May 2016

Scope Faces Megapack 2016 contains a total of 77,886 faces and takes up 3,82 GB of space (without the updates).
So far we have released 4 updates that extend the core megapack to a total of 82,662 faces and the space required to 4.05 GB.

Redistribution Policy:
Feel free to redistribute this megapack on any site. All we ask from you is to give credits to and DF11 Facepacks. Thank you!

How to add the Scope Faces Megapack to FM16

  1. Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.

  2. Move the extracted folder "Scope Faces Megapack 2016" to:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\graphics\
    Create the folder "graphics" if it doesn't exist.

  3. Open Football Manager 2016 and go to Preferences > Interface.
    Click the "Clear Cache" button.
    Enable "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences".
    Click the "Reload Skin" button.
    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.

Download the Update Packs

For our update packs we'll be following the DF11 release schedule, so you can expect us to have an update pack ready shortly after DF11 publish their own. The updates between the 2 styles will include the same pictures, but we'll make sure to include some extras with every new pack.

Update #1 - November 2015 (67 MB)
The 1st update pack contains over 1400 faces of players and staff. Most of them are updated pics from the current season of people who already exist in the core megapack. DF11 November's update, plus around 200 extras.
Update #2 - December 2015 (147 MB)
The 2nd update pack contains over 3000 faces of players and staff. Half of them are updated pics from the current season of people who already exist in the core megapack. DF11 December's update, plus around 50 extras.
Update #3 - March 2016 (208 MB)
The 3rd update pack contains over 4200 faces of players and staff. Half of them are updated pics from the current season of people who already exist in the core megapack. DF11 January's and February's updates, plus around 40 extras.
Update #4 - May 2016 (163 MB)
The 4th update pack contains over 3200 faces of players and staff. Half of them are updated pics from the current season of people who already exist in the core megapack. DF11 March's and April's updates.
Update #5 - October 2016 (495 MB)
The final update pack contains over 10500 faces of players and staff. If you don't want to download the full repack for FM17 and you have the previous 4 updates, just get this one.
For the last update, I forgot to include the config.xml file in the pack, so you need to download final config.

To install November's update, extract the .zip file you downloaded and move all files inside the "Scope Faces - 2015 November Update" folder to your "Scope Faces Megapack 2016" folder. Overwrite the files it's asking you to, including the config.xml file (especially this one).
Then clear cache and reload skin from FM16 preferences as usual.

Follow the same process with all update packs.


Scope style is created by Stam from but this megapack wouldn't be possible without the help from necjeff and his amazing team at DF11 Facepacks. Thank you Jeff!!

    @ItsChloeAshlyn: Thanks for your comment. I'll add these and fix Ikeme with the next update pack which will likely arrive 2 weeks from now.

    Ro-Shaun Williams and Regan Poole of Manchester United have missing scope faces. Will you be adding them in anytime soon with other missing faces. Also Carl Ikeme at Wolves has the scope face of their ex goalkeeper Matt Murray so that needs correcting too

    @Stam: aaaah ahhaha I'm sorry I'm an idiot...

    @traviss: I'm glad that you like the pack and the style. Scroll a bit until you see "Download the Update Packs", you'll find the 3 links to grab the updates. The big red "Download Now" only has the core megapack without the updates.
  • traviss's avatar
    ehi wassup man, how you doing? first of all let me say that I love your faces pack with unique style but I have a problem: everytime I try downloading the updates it keeps downloading only the basic pack with just the first 77,500 faces...what am I doing wrong?? second of all, is it possible to send you other pics to add to the next update and, if it's yes, where? thanks
  • gstaricco's avatar
    @Stam Would be great a default face. Thnks for the update.
  • Stam's avatar
    Download link for March's update has been added. It contains over 4200 faces of players and staff. Half of them are updated pics from the current season. The megapack now extends to over 81k pics. Enjoy!

    @gstaricco: No, but it's easy to create one if you're interested.

    @Carpo99: Make sure to follow all the installation instructions as outlined above. People tend to forget the part that involves clearing cache and reloading skin.

    @maxbobhue: He was added with today's update :)
  • gstaricco's avatar
    Hi Stam. There is default face for this pack?
  • BartySo's avatar
    Hello friend any possible date for new update release?
  • Carpo99's avatar
    I have downloaded it but only a few of the player faces are showing?
  • maxbobhue's avatar
    Can you please put Jeff Reine-Adelaide's face in the next update?
  • Stam's avatar
    @BartySo: I don't have time to gather pictures myself, but if someone provides them in certain size and crop I'll be able to convert and add them in the next update.
  • BartySo's avatar
    I was wondering have you got any plans to make faces for players from Kazakhstan or Japanese league? Maybe some Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Hercegovina or Iran? Those are leagues from Claassen League Megapack. Japanese league with your facepack will be awesome to play!
  • Stam's avatar
    @ChrisKZ: Overwrite old ones, especially the config.xml file.
  • ChrisKZ's avatar
    We paste the photos over the old ones or we put the new folder along with the old one?
  • Stam's avatar
    Download link for December's update has been added. It contains over 3000 faces of players and staff. Half of them are updated pics from the current season. The megapack now extends to over 79k pics. Enjoy!
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Even though December's update is now ready, I wish to go through the new pics one more time before releasing it. Therefore it will come out tomorrow. Apologies for the delay.
  • Stam's avatar
    @BartySo: Next update will arrive by Friday. And yes, graphics are always save-game compatible; no need to start a new one.
  • BartySo's avatar
