FM 2011 Misc Graphics - English Background Megapack
All-England Stadium Pack is an FM-View Exclusive release by minneapolisJon. The download link redirects you to the Official Release Page.

A note from the author:
This pack is the net result of about 500 hours of picture hunting, enhancing, and general passion for the lower leages of the English system. There are 648 pictures in this pack, most being shot at a 1600x900 resolution for a very high quality image.

Many shots are done by professional photographers that are copyright-protected, but have allowed me to use their work in this pack, all free of charge. It is, I believe, the most comprehensive pack availible within the FM online community for England-Only stadiums. While the pack is designed for widescreen monitors, it will work on standard 4x3 screens as well. I touched every shot personally to ensure the finest image.

This pack will work on FM 2009, FM 2010, and FM 2011. If you are playing FM 2011, I suggest, while backgrounds are enabled this year, that you use a dark skin with a filter through the image, since FM 2011 as released contains no filter, rendering the screen next to impossible to read. This pack is designed to show on teamscreens AND matchdays.


The pictures below are taken in FM2010, but this is a FM2011 megapack regardless.

Installation instructions:

Unzip the pack, then place in: my documents/sports interactive/football manager/skins/(FOLDER OF SKIN YOU ARE USING)/graphics/backgrounds

Config.xml Manipulation:
If you want just one of the options (MATCHDAYS or TEAM SCREENS) to work, go into the config file and delete what you don't want it to do. The config.xml files can be opened with NOTEPAD, the lines of code with "TEAM" in it are for team-page backgrounds, and the lines with "STADIUM" are for matchday backgrounds. Delete the ones you don't want. Don't delete anything else.


This background megapack was created by minneapolisJon from FM-View.
