Welcome to my Football Manager Blog, the main purpose of this blog is to provide updates on the status of my Football Manager Skins & Guides Website

If you have any questions or queries then I can generally be found in the Skinning Forum at the Official Sports Interactive Forums, though I'd ask you to open a new thread rather than sending me a message.

To help with navigation I have included indexes of my content for the last few versions of Football Manager in the tabs below.

Football Manager 2017 - How To Locate or Move Your User Data Location

Like with FM2016 the Preferences menu in FM2017 no longer lists or allows you to change your User Data Location, this feature was removed from the game because it was confusing people.

Your User Data Location is the place on your hard drive where user generated content is stored, this includes data generated by the game such as save games, tactics and shortlists. It also includes graphics (kits, logos, faces etc) and skins that you may have downloaded or created.

These instructions are largely the same for Football Manager 2017, however as the Touch Mode is now a seperate entry in your Steam Game Library the instructions are slightly different depending on which mode of FM2017 you are using.

Football Manager 2017 Beta Release

Am a little bit late but the Pre-Release Beta of Football Manager 2017 has been out for about a week now with the full release expected on the 4th November 2016.

As normal I will start updating my content once the game has been fully released.

At the moment there doesn't seem to be too much different from a skinning point of view, the one big change is the fact that the Touch Mode is now a seperate entry in your Steam Game Library, which means if you are using that version of the game your instructions will be slightly different than in previous years.

As normal most up-to-date information can be found in the Skinning Forum on the Official Sports Interactive Forums.

From a quick look it looks like logos, kits and player faces all haven't changed and as such you should still be able to use last year graphics. Though at the moment your Manager Picture won't work as as their is a new 3D generation system in place that cannot be overriden at the moment.
Skins as always won't work and you will have to wait for the skin makers to update or release new skins.
