Where have you put your skins when you downloaded them ? They should go in to the Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011 file in your documents folder. If you haven't got a "skins" folder in there then create one and extract any downloaded skins in to that. Then you should be able to pick one from the preference menu in the game. Also make sure you untick Use Skin Cache and tick the Always Reload Skin option.i know its a stupid question but ive done everything i did with fm10 for the skins but the skins aren't appearing in the prefrences, just the 3 default ones, could anyone help?
