Ok lads, while we are waiting for a fix from SI on the backgrounds, this is a way around getting them to work.

Download this file http://www.mediafire.com/download/3airkqf0sj0szf2/settings.fmf

Do not unzip this file, just

Put the settings.fmf file in

Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2014\data and replace the file that is in there, thats it.


Your backgrounds will now work in the game.

Exactly the problem, dont download it with winrar. Just save the file to your desktop and then you can put it in the right place.

I've downloaded the setting.fmf file, unzipped and placed in : (i'm on a mac)



Replacing the exsisting .fmf file

I have my own backgrounds that I have placed in :




I then reloaded the skin but backgrounds were still not showing.

I have also tried placing the backgrounds here :



Again, reloading the skins in preferences but the backgrounds still aren't showing.

You are a bit off on your folders mate. Put them in here like this

Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\graphics\backgrounds

Hmmmm, placed in there now mate (had to make the graphics/backgrounds folder(s)), reloaded skin and still nothing. There's nothing I have to tick in the ingame settings is there? I remember last here you had to tick "show backgrounds" or something like but this year can't find anything like that.

Did you make a config file for your backgrounds? Are they the large backgrounds or the "small" ones that show in the skin ?

There is no tick for backgrounds in the menu, they deleted that by mistake Sad

Here is backgrounds. I have sorted them out into countries, then leagues, each folder has it's own config.

I also have the "small" background megapack and they are showing on the squad profile screen, just the large backgrounds.
