4 > Will my Football Manager game (or operating system/pc) become slower due to all these DF11 faces (8GB)?

This fact is confirmed by 'Sports Interactive' in 2013.

1 > None of the DF11 faces show up in game!
There can be several reasons for this problem.
* Check the Football Manager ingame settings and set them correctly. Reload skin / restart game.
** Perhaps you have another folder in your DF11 Megapack?
Move inside your DF11 Megapack folder and delete all unnecessary items. Such as textfiles and subfolders.
The only allowed files in your Megapack folder are the '.png' files (faces) and 1 'Config file'.
Any other file or folder will stop your faces from working.
*** Check if your Megapack folder includes the 'config file'. Faces don't work without a 'config file'.
**** The worste solution is the one that helps the most.
Un-install the FM game + Re-install the game.
Create a new 'graphics' folder in the Football Manager 20** destination folder.
Add your DF11 Megapack to the new graphics folder and set the ingame settings correctly again.
2 > Some particular DF11 faces don't show up.
This is probably a file extension error.
Every face needs to have the 'png' extension. (written in low cases)
The non working face might have the 'PNG' extension by accident. (written in upper cases)
Near side you will find a easy video how to change the png extension in Windows 10.
Follow for example this video for other operating systems or Google for it.
Change the upper case extension into the lower case 'png' extension and reload your skin/game.
