I didn't get the chance to download the updates, pics etc file someone made on the old forum. Can it be posted again or a link posted?

Was it saint-sausage/crab lungs that did it under a new name? If so, well done again and hello.

Once downloaded this file, do the following

1) Goto my doccuments > sports interactive > football manager 2008

2) This should bring up a list of db, filters, games, matches, skins, tactics

3) Extract the winrar "graphics" file here

Next you need to change the preferences in FM08 to make the game use the new graphics

1) Open up FM08, goto preferences on the main menu

2) Click on the display and sound sub menu

3) "use skin cache" should be ticked

4) "always reload skin on confirm" should be unticked

Hope this helps. Any questions just ask in this thread. I may have to update the opening post as Im doing these instructions from memory, though hopefully they should work
