Hi,

Just downloaded a logo and face pack, and I can't seem to get them to be read by the game at all!! Please help and can someone give me a detailed, step by step guide to putting this to rights. Thank you.
Have you already made files for them to go into?
If you have, you should go to FM, go to Options>Preferences>Display and Sound. Then untick the "use skin cache button". It should work if you've done that.

If you haven't made the files they should be made in;
Sports Interative>Football Manager 2009 --> Make a folder "Graphics"
In that folder you should make the folder "Pictures"
In that one you should make a folder;
Facepacks
Logo
Kits
and maybe others like backgrounds or icons.....

Good Luck!
Talking about facepacks how would i be able to add a pic of me into the game if i created a player under my name???
is it possible???
to create your own facepack etc.

then what you need to is the following:

take any config file from any other facepacks.

in there you will already find codes.

now, the things you will need to remove is only the ones who are similar to this: "<record from="68000434" to="graphics/pictures/person/68000434/portrait"/>"

now you also need that line. first of all, in the game in options you need to go in and tick some option with "show unique id's". now when you do that, there will be a unique number under all the players, teams etc.

when you have created your own player, you will have a number of yourself. take that number, and replace your number with the numbers from above.

BUT.

the part after "record from=" and then you have the name of the file of your picture in the folder.

so for an example:

<record from="MYPICTURE" to="graphics/pictures/person/MYUNIQUEID/portrait"/>

hope that helps.
Thanks alot red, will give it a try, hopefully i will get used to it, but then again the worst that can happen is that it wont work, so i just keep tryin till i get it right.
