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.

    Ok, I have fund my problem.
    As the automatic view is very large, on my resolution, it goes beyond the frame ... I think I am asking too much on my team panel ..

    I enclose you my panel that I use.

    Avoid the audio commentary, there are plenty of warnings on here, it’s a terrible mod that corrupts the game

    Glad you sorted it my friend. I can only assume there's a compatibility issue with the "match_events.xml"/"match_sounds.xml"/"simatchviewer-pc.fmf" files.

    sorry to only answer now, I had to go to work.
    I sent you the display I use during the game.
    It is placed here : "Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\views".

    And try to see if the column we are talking about stays at its value or decreases when you auto-size all the columns. If it stays with you, it's because it's the problem on my app ... (probably because I have a 2560x1440 resolution)

    Have a good day.

    Re :

    It's ok. I have found the problem. I have deleted the old "properties" folder and replaced it with yours. And it worked. And my problem is that I use too much information.
    Sorry for inconvenience.

    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.



    @flut
    for the 2 problem what must i do that i not have that problem? Can you post the new panel you have put in

    Good evening flut.
    I have a few small touch-ups to do on some panels. I would have needed a little help.

    First touch up : I would like to put the arrow in the center of the column ( cf : image 1)

    Second touch-up : I would like put the texte in the center of the column and also adjust the horizontality with respect to the writing line. ( image 2)

    Third touch-up : I am coming back to you because I still have not succeeded in changing the size of the photo and repositioning the jersey on this panel there. (cf : image 3)

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Regarding the first two questions:
    That columns are not in the team squad.xml. However, regarding the fatigue, I found the code and I included it in a "risk assessment" as default but I couldn't place it in the centre (I couldn't make the alignment code work...)

    Regarding pic 1 could you please tell me what is that column (in english)?

    Regarding pic3, you can edit it in tactics icon preview info panel13.xml (is not easy to explain how you can do it since you have to adjust various codes, because that panel have an animation..

    for player picture you should edit the code starting by

    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="pict"

    and the code starting by

    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="picr"

    change the values of vertical and horizontal using try and error mode (but you should put the same values in the two codes)

    For kit you should edit

    the codes starying by

    <widget id="cKiu" class="kit_icon"

    <widget class="picture" id="lftB"

    <widget id="cKit" class="kit_icon"

    use again try and error method changing the values of top and all in the cKit and cKiu codes and the values of vertical and horizontal in the code with id="lftB"

    Hello flut.
    Thanks for the directions I'll try this this weekend.

    The window with the arrows is that of the training performance (cf img)

    I read that you are working on an update, so I'll leave you alone and get back to you, if I have any concerns, as soon as I see the update is complete.
    Good weekend to you and your loved ones.

    i had the same problem with my var and after taking out the match events.xml & match sounds it worked

    So it seems mate. I'll have a look cos some, including me, enjoyed the commentary element, as I was involved in improving the original. Also, throughout FM20 I edited the commentary for my personal use, to reduce the overlaps and repeats even further. It's a long winded process, as there are a ton of sound files. Anyway, this forum is about the Flutskin but it was important to emphasise to everyone that his skin played no part in the VAR issue.

    I really like this skin but it was a bit buggy for me. The ss kits I’ve installed didn’t translate to the players profile page and there were a few logos that were out of shape/misplaced.

    Hi Flut, I think your version 6 is nearing perfection, if you are updating, will we need to update for kit 14, and SS kits again?

    Eventually you may get to play the game

    Hi all

    I intend to upload the new version today. Is not a version full of changes but there is a few I hope you like it. Once again, thank you all for your support!!
    Regarding some questions:

    Spiro: you don't need notepad++ but only an aplication for edit xmls. For instance, you can do it with notebook. However I advice an application similar to notepad++ because is easier to edit with an aplication which permit to better see the "open" and "close" containers/widgets (in order to avoid mistakes).

    Charlston: yes. You have to keep the files you change in v6 in order to place them in the new version (such as the kit icon14 and the SS kits). Don't forget to not keep the old version in the skins folder when you download the new version in order to avoid some conflicts.

    cheers

    Nice work flut. The view of the game is really successful.

    Well, as you have finished the update, I am coming to you for some small edits that I need to do for my 2560x1440 resolution.

    The first and second are on the same panel. I would like to enlarge and re-center the team form indicator (left circle) and align the number with the others (right circle).
    The third, I would like to resize the numbers of the players, shift the faces to the left and shift the shirts to the right.

    Thank you for your help and have a good Sunday
