This is our 2018 Standard/Cut-Out Faces Megapack for Football Manager Mobile 2018 ONLY. Thanks to Sortitoutsi.net for providing the source facepack!
We have made the whole new pack available for download, as well as an "upgrade" pack for advanced users to simply overwrite any relevant files with in order to keep download sizes lower. Only download the upgrade pack if you know which version you currently have installed and are aware of how to copy the files correctly.
Our pack contains over 45,000 player and staff images. We have also released a "Lite" version of the pack with around 2,000 of the most popular players and managers in the game, and a "UK" version, containing around 7,000 photos of players and staff based in the UK and Ireland.
We will be releasing regular updates this year to make sure that every player and manager has their face in game, so you end up with a full and complete experience. Our target is no gaps!
If you find a missing, bugged, or incorrect face, please let us know in the comments below, and we'll make sure to have it sorted for the next update.
How to Download?
This pack is around 1.95GB compressed, and as such is expensive for us to host the file and allow anyone to download it for free. Instead, all our files are available via Torrents.
Torrents are fantastic for downloading large files - the file is split into smaller sections and downloaded to your device individually and then pieced back together, all without you having to worry about anything. This means that everything is distributed, and in the right conditions your download speeds could even be quicker! We have a system in place to ensure that all our files will be available through the Torrents at all times.
If you're not familiar with Torrents, you'll need a special application to download them. We can recommend qBitTorrent or Deluge on Windows; Transmission on Mac OS or Linux; or Flud on Android. iOS devices cannot directly download Torrent files, so you'll need to use your computer for this.
Our Premium Members can download our files from our high-speed download servers without having to worry about Torrents at all. Simply click the big green button and follow the instructions below to install the faces on your device.
How to Install?
iOS Devices: Please follow the guide in this topic and video (click here).
Android Devices: If you downloaded on your computer, extract the files using your file manager, or a program like 7Zip. To copy the files to your device, use an application like AirDroid or connect your device via USB, and copy the folder structure into the Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager Mobile 2018/normal/graphics/faces directory. You might need to create this directory.
If you downloaded on your Android device directly, then when you extract it on-device, make sure you select the above folder as the extraction location.
Please note, there is over 39,000 files that have to be copied. Depending on the age of your device, this is likely going to take a while, and you may not see anything happening. Let it run in the background for a while if this seems to happen to you, and you'll eventually get the result you want.
If you have already played the game on your Android device, you should then go to the Android/data/com.sigames.fmm2018/files/installed/application_support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager Mobile 2018/normal/Caches folder and delete any files in there.
Q: In previous years I had to download different packs depending on my screen size. Do I not have to do that anymore?
A: No. Sports Interactive have consolidated the graphics system this year, so it's one pack for every device!
Q: I'm getting file extraction errors. What can I do?
A: On Windows, Mac OS or Linux your default file manager will be able to extract these files without any trouble. However, some Android file managers and devices may struggle with the size of the files. We recommend using Androzip to extract these files if you're unsure.
If in doubt, please post in the comments below. We'll be glad to help.
