FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 16.0

Dear all

This FLUTSKIN version 16 is the final version of FLUTSKIN for FM21!!

A great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still improving the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a recognized thank you to those one who help me answering the questions and requests and adapted the FlutSkin (namely and specially Rosek for the help to answering questions and the adapted version for 2560x1440, and Richbell, for the adapted version with hidden attributes!!!!! And, of course I don't forget the skinners community who also indirectly contributed to FlutSkin with their creativity.

Also a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin) anf to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Now is time to stop editing the skin for this season. I wish to return for FM22. Lets wait and see since no one is able to predict the future.

MAIN CHANGES IN v16.0
- Following the great idea of majesticeternity, Tyburn and a31632 (from Sports Interactive community) I included in several xmls a code for personalize the background in specific panels, namely club overview, player overview, board room, human profile and team training. These codes are not “activated” by default but if you want to have a different (customized) background in each one of that panels you just have to activate the codes. In the read me file I explain how you can do it.
- Nation overall panel
- Nation overview panel
- Human profile panel
- Player profile stadium option in player overview panel
- News panel

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.

You can do so by clicking the button down below:


SOME ADITTIONAL NOTES:

PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY SCREENSHOTS ARE FROM PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF THE SKIN

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO MAKE THE GAME MORE DIFFICULT, YOU ALSO CAN DOWNLOAD AN ADAPTED VERSION OF THE SKIN (V. 15) WITH THE ATTRIBUTES VALUES HIDDEN. THIS ADAPTED VERSION WAS AN IDEA OF RICHBELL AND, ALTHOUGH WITH MY HELP, IT WAS RICHBELL WHO ALSO DID THE MAJORITY OF THE CHANGES. THANK YOU MY FRIEND!
Please note that for this version working well (with hidden attributes) you should remove the original version of the skin.


FOR THOSE WHO USE 2560x1440 RESOLUTION YOU ALSO CAN DOWNLOAD THE ADAPTED VERSION (v. 16.0) EDITED BY ROSEK

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


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.


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 16.0 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.

    The feuille de match is also in the same xml as I already told you. However, as I already also said, I can't help you since I need to find exactly how to do it (and test it since, I didn't edit that "feuille de match" panel yet) and I have not time to do that for now. Sorry.


    Thank you. No worries, I know you're pretty busy.
    That's why I'm doing this. To just help.

    Good evening, I finally finished the resolution in 2560 x 1440.

    On the other hand there is a small change of position on the ticket, the logos are put on the white side of the ticket because if I put them on the left, as in the initial version, they disappear ...

    Big thank you to flut for helping me out when he himself is already quite overwhelmed.

    Good game everyone

    Hello @flut and everyone,

    Is this skin doesn't have button to go back to pep talk before the match and in half time after we move to tactic page? Or maybe I missed it because I can't find it?

    https://i.imgur.com/D4eT0d8.jpg


    And I don't know if this thing about player's physical condition is a bug or not. In tactic page or team selection before start the match, when I hovering the mouse over the little information icon between the kit and player's name, it show the actual physical condition of the player

    https://i.imgur.com/HHOjgA1.jpg

    But after the 1st pep talk and in match, the physical condition only show 1%

    https://i.imgur.com/7BdlBAK.jpg

    Is this a bug or not?


    Thank you and stay healthy everyone.

    Hi

    regarding the first "problem" what is different from the default skin? Could you please show me (I looked to that panel in the default skin and it seemed similar to me - also without that possibility you talked about, but maybe I haven't look in the right way...)

    The second problem is, in fact, a bug. I don't know why it happens. However I already replaced that panel for other with a different information and that "new" panel will be included in the next version. Thanks.

    Good evening,
    Quick little question.
    Who is responsible for the pre-match discussions in your game?
    If it's someone other than yourself, the pre-match or half-time message has already been sent by the manager.
    I myself have checked in my game, it's the first thing that appears when I switch to match or locker room mode at half-time ...

    Hi Jeff: In fact I saw it in other skin (i supposed Andromeda). However, the TV logo only is displayed between highlights and not during the highlights. Thus, I will not include it. Sorry.

    Ooopss... I am sorry, my bad.

    It looks like the first one is not a bug or missing button. You are right @flut. I never use the default skin so I don't know about it, I always play with your skin since the past FM ^_^

    I tried it this morning with the default skin and it is the same, after the pep talk, if we go to tactics we cannot go back to pep talk. I think SI should make this possible like in FM20.

    Hello Rosek,

    I am the one in charge of pre-match talk, but looks like it is the game default that we cannot go back to pep talk after we click the tactic button in pep talk screen. I just remember we can do it in FM20, so maybe SI change it in FM21.

    Thought it might help other with the QHD resolution (2560x1440) so here I attached the adapted kiticon14 file to have the numbers and name in the player profile scaled correctly.


    @flut
    Feel free to include it in future updates as another alt file.

    Yes, it has clearly changed since FM 20, which is a shame. If I play a friendly match and give feedback to my starting 11, then sub them all, I cannot speak to the players I've brought on for the second half at all. 😢

    Why am I not getting the prematch line up showing on the pitch before the game.

    Also, im not keen on the prematch teamline up sheet as it misses off the substitues. How do I get the old one back with just the lineup sheet?

    Hey. Thank you for sharing your skin. Didnt think about it that way just tested it with one player profile and adjusted the values so that the number and name is on the jersey. For "normal length" names it should work. For long names my file doesnt work perfectly - yours is better there.

    I would like to use your skin because you also fixed things like the prematch panel and so on which I haven't. The only thing that I dont like is that you use the alt color menu bars. I want to have it plain black as in default.

    Can you help me doing so but at the same time keeping your settings?

    Seems like I found a solution... To fix the coloured bars: In the "sidebar menu table.xml"-File I just changed every colour="primary" or colour="secondary" to "black" or "white" according to the default sidebar menu table File. Looks ok now. However I didnt change any file in the panels/menubar folder. Do I have to @flut?


    I also dont want the player picture on the left. I therefore exchanged the "player overview panel.xml" with the default file which worked perfectly.

    I also like to use backgrounds and japanese club overview panel as well as the kit logo on player profile fix which you also use so I left it as it is.

    Regarding "alt scoreboard without managers" I dont know where to look at to see if its enabled or not but for now I am fine :-)

    If someone is interested in my alternative QHD version let me know I will upload it in case.

    Hello. It is true that I already use modifications of the "alt" folder given by flut.
    As for the color, well done for your find. What's good about this skin, you can customize it to your liking.

    I want to ask which file should I edit to change the player's name font? I remember I can change it from "kit name.fontxml" in FM20, but when I change it in FM21 the font didn't change. Are there any limitation or fonts that cannot be used for the player's name? Thank you
