I got off to a great start today in putting some graphics in the game for the first time on FM2010...

I installed a Japan facepack as well as logos for my J1 & J2 leagues that I got from another person with no problems

Then I tried to install a skin and it would not load in the game..

I have the boxes ticked for "always reload skin" as well as unticked for "use skin cache" obviously or my japan graphiics would not work

The skin was unzipped and I can actually see the graphics in my folder that I saved it under footballmanager2010/skins just like it said... it still did not work

I deleted the config. file thinking it was corrupted the game automatically put a config file back in.. that didnt work either

I tried downloading another skin.. same issue...

Any idea what is going on .. am i doing something wrong? i would think not cuz my other graphics for the facepack and logos i downlladed are working...

what skin is it your trying to use beadstarr?
someone suggested this tip the other day on a skin page of mine > I think u can try to edit the script of skin xml file. Open this skin folder then u will find file name such as "barca skin.xml" or another name. Open with notepad, look at the bottom of xml file & find words like this <string id="required_version" value="11.1.0" translate="false"/>. Change 11.1.0 with 11.0.0 and save then go to preferences, look if it's work or not.
I' usually use this trick, hope it's can help

i do know all skins made with the dark base skin need patch 11.1 to work but i would of though most use that or 11.2 nowdays

i thought it was stelko,ihad a few problems with getting it to work,dont worry about the above just get rid of the old one and redownload the updated version here> http://www.sortitoutsi.net/forum/topic/48946-steklo-x1-v1-1/

before this updated version i had to just put one folder out of the 4 into skins folder the stelko x1,now i have new version i extracted it all to skins and now when in preferences the 4 folders appear and work no probs,by the 4 i mean stelko left,stelko right calender etc

if youve already downloaded the v1.1 version then only thing to try is what i said before,others have had problems with getting the skin to work
