Hello out there in this great community, which I have supported for years
now!
I'm playing FM05 with Millwall in the Premiership, and I have assembled a
powerful and young squad.
Actually I'm so excited with these youngsters that I wanted to put in their
pictures, just like those of the original Millwall team. Of course I thought
it was simple, just use the editor. BUT is just me OR is that feature not
included?!?!

However I'm sure one of you guys know all about HOW to get a player image on
the profile?!?!

Thanx,


Lars Kristensen

1. Download or obtain the player pictures you want and put them is this
folder : \Football Manager 2005\data\graphics\pictures\players.
Shouldn't matter what sub folders they go in.

2. Make sure you have the corresponding config.xml file's (should be one in
each folder telling the game where to put the pics ingame).

3. IF you have a config.xml file but without the entries you require, just
add this line to the config file in the same folder as your image:
<record from="file name" to="graphics/pictures/person/*****/portrait"/>
Where file name is the name of the png of the player and ***** is the
players User ID.

4. To find Player ID load FM2005 goto options and tick the box marked turn
on unique IDs. The ID should then be shown under the players name at the top
of the screens.

5. Make sure the config.xml file is in the same folder as the corresponding
pictures. Not sure if there is a limit on the amount of pics that can be
referenced in a file.

6. In the game options screen make sure use player pictures box is ticked.

If you don't have a config.xml file open notepad and paste the information
below into the text file (I'll attach the actually config.xml file for the
brighton player pics as a reply its only a 3KB file and might get through):

<record>
<!-- resource manager options -->

<!-- dont preload anything in this folder -->
<boolean id="preload" value="false"/>

<!-- turn off auto mapping -->
<boolean id="amap" value="false"/>

<!-- logo mappings -->
<!-- the following XML maps pictures inside this folder into other
positions
in the resource system, which allows this folder to be dropped into any
place in the graphics folder and still have the game pick up the graphics
files from the correct places
-->

<list id="maps">
<record from="file1" to="graphics/pictures/person/000000/portrait"/>
<record from="file2" to="graphics/pictures/person/000001/portrait"/>

</list>
</record>

Replace file1 with the name of the png file, and 000000 with the players
unique ID. etc... for each pic.
save the file as config.xml (make sure notepad doesn't add a .txt
extension).

Let me know if this works and I'll add it to the FM2005 FAQ.
