Part 4

*Note: It doesn’t work with FM16 Default Skin. However, I’ve made some modifications in some skins (Default FM skins and Helvetica) to allow this to work:

If you want this backgrounds to work on Default Skin (Download FM16 Default Dark Skin or the FM16 Alternative Skin and extract to: Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2016/skins)

If you’re using Helvetica Skin, go to the directory mentioned above and delete the folder helveticalite2016. After that, download this modified version of Helvetica Lite 2016 and extract to the same directory ( Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2016/skins )

It works with default Elegance FM 16 skin and Aurum 2016 skin.

    Great job, possibly! Part 4 doesn’t work. I’ve been trying for 3 days and it says the “free download isn’t working, please try again later” then redirects you to a free sign up saying you can DL it if you register. I even tried that and it said I’d be sent a confirmation e mail but that never came either!
