I recently found this site :) and a big thumbs up to it (Y)

I noticed that you could download skins, and I've downloaded 3 skins but can't find one of them?

Can people help me!!!

Cheers my fellow FMers!
Hi Craig and welcome!

When you say you can't find them, do you mean you can't find where the downloaded files are now?
I downloaded them, and then opened it from my downloads in my folders on my laptop, can you tell me what to do please, I'm new to downloading skins for FM2011
On each skin download page, there is a step by step installation guide mate. Did you try to follow it?
probably didn't mate, thanks for the heads up, i will let you know if it works
I've just downloaded the steklo_x1 skin, and its gone into my downloads folder, what do i do next?
Obviously you didn't read the instructions and yet you keep asking... wasting your time and mine.
Please do me a favor and read more carefully before you ask. I've taken the time to provide all the information one may need when downloading a file to save time from such questions.

Anyway, I'll copy/paste the instructions here. Good luck.

Installation Instructions:

Download the skin and follow the steps below to get it into your game:

Extract the file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Copy the folders you extracted into your skins folder this is by default (you may need to create the skins folder if it doesn’t already exist):

Win Vista/7: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\skins
Win 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\skins
Win 98/ME: C:\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\skins
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/skins

If you cannot find your user data folder:

To select the skin in game you will need to:
  • load the game, and go into the preferences -> Display and Sound menu
  • untick ‘Use Skin Cache’ and tick ‘Always Reload Skin On Confirm’ then select confirm and
  • select the skin from the drop down menu, select confirm again and your new skin should now display. (Once the skin is loaded you can turn the skin cache back on and untick the Always Reload button.)
okay thanks, and sorry for wasting your time.
