FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 14.0

NOW THE SKIN IS TOTALLY COMPATIBLE WITH 1920x1080 SCREEN RESOLUTION AND 4k (windows display settings 200%; game 100%).
YOU SHOULD USE IT IN FULL WINDOWS, ICONS ONLY


Dear all
I’m proud to introduce you the FLUTSKIN (dark version) for FM21.

I would like to thank you all the fans who contacted me in order to know if FLUTSKIN would be released this year and gave me additional motivation to hard work on the skin.
I hope you like and appreciate the work done.

As usual, the FLUTSKIN is completely full of changes when you compare with the default skin.

The Skin pack also includes:
1. “Round country flags”, “round continents logos” and default logos specially made in metallic style by @Qvordrup from sourtitoutsi. Those graphics will be displayed in the title bar.

Thank you @Qvordrup by your great work and for your collaboration!!!

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel) here in sourtitoutsi. FC style kits HERE; SS Kits style HERE
However, if you prefer edit your own kits, I also included in the pack a .pdf file explaining how you can edit the kits for Flutskin.

If you prefer SS'kits you can download this and replace the kits folder located here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins\fm2021flutskin_dark\graphics\pictures\kits
HERE

The logos in country locators are now updated by @Qvordrup according the last version of metallic logos.

You can also download the stadiums background megapack and the citypics released by @DazS8 (thank you, my friend) HERE and HERE

And @geordie1981 has made a pack for inside "small" stadiums HERE

You can also download the sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack HERE

As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.

Main changes in 9.0
- Face pictures included in team squad, team squad tactics, search panel, scouting list panel, staff teams and so on..

- Small tweaks here and there
- TV Logos included (following the work of Rosek, I included the TV Logos in match panel, line ups panel, league table in match preview and in the match caption displaying when a team score a goal)

Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv [email protected] You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.

Once again I would like to thank you to all FM Fans who support my work and also to all skin makers. A special thank you to PATRES10 from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin).

Also a special thank you to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Also a special thank you for Qvordrup, Rosek and Evil-Muffin and other FM fans (I just highlighted Rosek and Evil since they are all the time available to help the people who like to play with FlutSkin and they are keeping the answers of questions and requests updated; however I thank you all!!!)

One last "thing": some of the screenshots of the skin are not updated (are from previous versions of the skin). Sorry for that but I have not time yet to update the screenshots.

Resolution requirements:
This skin was made to work properly in 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions.

How to add Flut Skin in FM21
Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2021flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins

  • Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  • Start FM21 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  • You should see FM 2021 Flut Skin dark - Version 14.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  • Hit the Confirm button.


  • Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    I guess mate well fingers crossed both he and flut can get their skins back to how they want them because for me football manager isn’t the same without their skins. I hope sports interactive realise one day that they put out the product but it’s the hard work of all the modding community that takes the game to the next level.

    Spot on mate, the skins make the game far more enjoyable. I hope SI put out a minor update next week which will enable every custom made skin to run much better.

    Hi
    I solved my logo problem.
    For that I took my logo folder from "pictures / logo / comp / normal and I put it in my" logo / comp in which I had the "balls" of the nations. And with Notepad I modify the config by adding this:

    "graphics/pictures/comp/1/logo/background/right"/

    Hoping that's what you're asking for.
    Because for the latency, sorry but I would wait for the update from the chef who does a fantastic job. Let’s be patient.

    HI all: I believe the skin now is running well. I believe I fixed almost all the problem regarding that annoying problem. Please test it and let me know if is running well. Ad thank you all!!!

    In meantime, as you can see, I did some more tweaks. The major was in match scoreboard. I believe you will like it (I still couldn't find how colour the names of the clubs but I believe is okay as it is now ๐Ÿ™‚)

    It now seems that Rick has given up on the Andromeda skin due to a yet unknown reason. I guess there is more to life than FM. In the meantime it seems Flut has cracked it with v2.2 !

    Thank you all for reporting the fact that the skin is running well now and for your support!!
    I also have to say that is a shame if Rick quit editing the skin since Andromeda is one of the best skins for years. Maybe he reconsider (Iremember a few years ago he also thought to quit but fortunately he didn't do it)

    RoseK: I don’tknow if I understood. If so, try to go to graphics\tables\custom\squad\outside squad\row.xml
    And change the colour name in the following code

    <colour id="red_replacement" name="squad_outside"/>


    Sheffield Hammer: maybe you should clear the cache, exit the game,keep only this skin in the skins folder and reload the game (don’t forget you should not keep the older versions of the skin)

    Hello. Sorry for my English but I use a translator because it's not my native language at all...
    On the transmitted images, there is a white veil when I do not select the players ( fond blanc) and which disappears when I give a position to the player ( apres selection). I wanted to make this white veil disappear.
