Re: Football Manager 2017 Features Revealed

I downloaded the newest version (9.0 I think) and extracted it directly to my graphics folder. Then I reloaded the skin and it worked.

Your problem might have to do with folder structure.

My structure is graphics->pictures, and then 6 different folders with faces, flags, icon faces, kits, logos, and trophies.

Make sure you untick the box that says "use skin cache."

Its a good idea to use the skin cache. Just click the button that says clear cache and then reload the skin.

I might just delete the whole thing out of my graphics folder, download it again, and try it loading it again.

At this point I'm thinking maybe something went wrong with the download of the face pack itself. The folder structure is exactly the same as I had it in 16

Re: Football Manager 2017 Features Revealed

I really should work no matter what the structure is as long as it's in the graphics folder. But there could be a problem with the control file that is with your pictures. (I think it might be an xml file? Not sure haven't looked recently). If that is referencing a specific file path, that could cause a problem.

Yesssssssssss.




Something was corrupt with that initial download. Re-downloaded, and it worked like a million bucks.

Re: Football Manager 2017 Features Revealed

Is anyone else having issues with injuries? Second team in this save now, 3 games into the pre-season, 4 major injuries to key players. All out 3+ months. I also have 4 minor injuries of 2-6 weeks.

But my first two mess around saves, were not this bad. Maybe these teams just have too many injury prone players? I might buy the editor to check. As its not listed under any of their cons.
