hii everyone :] im quite good with most things to do with fm 11 however i am finding it hard to add new players faces to the megapack, i have signed a few younger players that are not in the megapack but i have found photos of them on the internet, ive tried converting them to the right type of format and renamed the files to the unique id of the player in the game but when i restart fm the players still has no picture, just the white outline, help needed please thankyou :D
Have you unticked the "Use skin cache" and ticked "Reload skin on confirm"?
yeah Ive tried that thanks, and even tried closing FM then starting it up again, Im just not sure if Im doing what you need to in order to add new faces, the ones that are already in the megapack work fine just not the few that i have put into the megapack :[ is there already a blog sum were on this site or a section some were that shows you exactly how to add player faces yourself?
Have you edited the config file? Sounds like you might have missed that.
Check list:
-Picture should be in ".png" format. Not ".PNG".

-Filename of the picture should be the unique id of the player.

-Put the picture in the team's folder. You can find all of it here: C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\players\

-Add this line to the group of lines in the config file inside the folder where you put the picture file: <record from="(ID NUMBER)" to="graphics/pictures/person/(ID NUMBER)/portrait"/> Don't include the parentheses.

-Open FM and tick "Reload skin on confirm" and untick "Use skin cache".

And that's all. It should hopefully work. :D

If you open up the config.xml file, you can edit it by doing to the player ID as is done with the others :)
