Tired of having unlicensed kits and badges or not having any player faces in the game? In this quick guide we explain how to add custom graphics to Football Manager. Simply follow the steps we've explained below and you won't have any problems adding faces, kits, logos or any other custom graphics to Football Manager 2016.
This guide explains the procedure of adding graphics to FM17, but can also be used in FM16, FM15, FM14 and other older versions of the game. If you already used graphics an older version of the game and want to use them in FM17 as well, just copy and paste your Graphics Folder from the location in the old game to the location in the new game. It's that easy! But if you are new to the game and don't have any graphics yet, follow these steps:
Step 1: Knowing where to put the graphics
Once you have downloaded the graphics you want to have in Football Manager, you will need to extract the content of that download in the following folder(s):
Windows: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2017/graphics/
To minimize clutter we recommend that you create different folders for the different types of graphics: Kits, Logos, Faces etc.
Step 2: Making sure it works in Football Manager
Load up Football Manager and navigate to 'Preferences' (usually located in the bottom of the main menu screen; if you've already loaded a save, you will find it under the FM dropdown menu in the top right of your screen).
When the preferences screen is loaded, navigate to 'Interface'
Then in the 'Appearance' section, deselect 'Use caching to decrease page loading times' and make sure 'Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences' is selected. (see screen below)
After making these changes, click 'Confirm'.
If you have followed these steps correctly you will now be able to see the logos, faces and kits you have downloaded.
