FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 9.0

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 also can 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 also can download the sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack HERE


As always FlutSkin is completely free[/b] 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:



Main changes in 9.0
- Face pictures included in team squad, team squad tactics, search panel, scouting list panel, staff teams and so on..
- Player overview tweaked (a new physical condition included as default box)
- 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 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 9.0 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.

    Jeff: I only could acceed to the V1 of Andromeda skin and in that version i tis displayed in match inbetween highlights…Maybe later I will try to include it…

    Rosek and Jeyk: Use this https://www.mediafire.com/file/76chtv2eg1eix18/Sidebar_default_colour.zip/file

    RoseK. The panels are

    Hi Flut,

    I already put the font file in the fonts folder and then edit the kit name.fontxml file, I cleared the cache and reload skin, I even close the game and run it again. But the kit name font didn't changed.

    https://i.imgur.com/qzK4v4y.jpg


    Also, where can I edit the name's position? I want to lower the player's name position on kit. Thank you a lot 🙂

    Regarding the font, I don't know. Did you tested with not capital letters? You also can change that font in the xml kit icon 14, changing font="fonts/kit name" for other font name.

    The position of the name you can edit it also in kit icon14.xml in the following code

    <widget class="label" id="bNAM" size="11" alignment="top, centre_y, can_scale" font="fonts/kit name" colour="secondary" >
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="43" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="80"/>
    </widget>

    Thank you Flut, it works !! Looks like I have to use lower case letter in the xml file.

    Hi All,

    Can anyone post their code for what they have the "kit icon 14" panel please? Been trying to play around but the name on back of shirt and number doesn't look very good to me. I have used the following:

    <!--Name of the player: This is hidden on the player stats panel-->
    <!-- the font size reduces one size when the name is bigger than 16 characters -->
    <widget class="label" id="bNAM" size="11" alignment="top, centre_y, can_scale" font="fonts/kit name" colour="secondary" >
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="20" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="80"/>
    </widget>

    <!-- player number -->
    <widget class="picture" id="bNUM" image_alignment="centre" scale_picture="true">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="0"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="65"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="6" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="68" />

    If anyone could offer any recommendations on what I need to change that would be great.

    Many thanks

    Go to match in between highlights panel.xml and try to increase these values

    <integer id="true_value" value="1573" />
    <integer id="false_value" value="1573" />

    after that, change the value (1573) in this other code (put the same value)

    <integer id="TbWl" value="1573"/> <!-- 1920 up -->

    Hello @flut!


    Concerning bench players for the upcoming game: Normally they are highlighted with a green background e.g.. It is helpful as the number of allowed bench players can vary depending on the competition. It happened now a few times that I didnt notice that I have less bench players than I have picked and then e.g. I had no striker on the bench in the upcoming game. Therefore I want to ask if you can help me highlighting the background for the number of allowed bench players in the menu I attached. In the red marked area I want to have a light green background that indicates the allowed bench players but at the same time I want to keep the background with the team logo that is there already.

    Hope you understand what I mean!

    Thanks !

    Hello Jeyk.

    I'm assuming you're using my setup because I see the players lines are not highlighted "white".
    If it's the entire line of players you want to change, this is the path in which the "line" register is to change the color.

    \ Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2021 \ skins \ fm2021flutskin_dark.6 \ graphics \ tables \ custom \ squad \ substitute.

    From memory, I put "black", you can change it to "green", it will be displayed to you as on my attachment.

    Have a good day
