You need to use either 7Zip or WinRAR to extract the files into a folder before opening the .psd files.

Sorry to bump the thread, but I can't get the kits into the game despite following the instructions. Do i need to save it as a config in photoshop?

What do you mean 'save it as a config in photoshop'? The config file is a .xml text file. The .xml must be in the same folder as the kits you want to use as replacements. Here is an example config.xml:

Code:
<record>

    <boolean id="preload" value="false"/>
    <boolean id="amap" value="false"/>

    <list id="maps">
        <record from="yourteam_home"   to="graphics/pictures/team/yourteamID/kits/home"/> 
        <record from="yourteam_away"  to="graphics/pictures/team/yourteamID/kits/away"/>
    </list>
</record>
The first 'your team' section refers to the name of the image file you are using as a replacment (you don't need to include the .png file extension). The second is a number that is your teams ID. Your team ID can be found by turning on 'Show Unique Ids' in Prefrences > Display & Sound - and then by going to your team's squad screen.

Also make sure 'Always Reload Skin on Confirm' is ticked - just to be sure.

Hope that helps.

You need to have your kit images saved in .png format. So you will probably have a home and away kit. Then you have the config.xml so that is three files. Four if you have a third kit as well.

Good guide mate, but i've got some problems with the links.

Could someone provide me with a download for short-sleeve kit templates? Ones that look nice? Thanks to anyone who can.
