4 > My DF11 Megapack is older than september 2015, but i never missed a update pack my whole FM life.
You seem to be a loyal DF11 user of the first hour! There is no need for you to download a new DF11 Megapack.
Simply continue by what you were doing every month...... updating your DF11 Megapack!
5 > Will there be a new DF11 Megapack in 2016?
Yes. The new DF11 Megapack will be available in june 2016.
6 > I missed a few DF11 update packs during the last 10 months. (season 15/16)
Please visit the DF11 Updates page and download all available update packs ('Back-up file' + monthly updates).
7 > Do i need all the update packs?
Yes. Download and install all update packs in correct monthly order.
8 > The DF11 faces don't show up in Football Manager!
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'.
Now set your ingame settings precisely the same as written in step 5 of the Megapack page.
The DF11 faces should be working fine now. Contact us if the problem is still there.
9 > The download by 'MEGA' stopped during the download proces.
Mega is not longer our main download host since they have set bandwidt limitations for downloads worldwide.
If you still want to use Mega, then do it in Google Chrome.
Since october 2016 we recommend to download with our cloud host Sync.com or torrent/magnet.
10 > Will my Football Manager game (or PC) become slower due to all these DF11 faces (8GB)?
No. Even with all graphical additions such as faces, logos and stadium backgrounds the game will run normally.
All these graphical additions do only affect the start-up time for Football Manager. FM will run as usual once the game is loaded!
This fact is confirmed by 'Sports Interactive' in 2013.
11 > How to find the unique player ID's in Football Manager?
You will have to activate the option 'Show screen IDs in Title Bar to assist skinning'.
This option is available in the Football Manager settings 'Preferences' - 'Interface'.
12 > None of the DF11 faces appear in game. What's wrong?
* This may happen after a re-install of your pc operation system.
Set the ingame settings correctly as shown on the DF11 Megapack page + reload Football Manager.
Change skin by choosing a custom skin, if you still don't see the faces in game.
** Perhaps you have another folder in your DF11 Megapack?
Please delete all folders inside your DF11 Megapack. These will bring conflicts to your FM game and faces.
*** Check if your Megapack folder includes the 'config file'. Faces don't work without a 'config file'.
Solution: Download + install the latest update. It always includes the latest config file!
