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.

    What does it mean in normal work? I play 1920x1080 and 100%, so it shouldn't be a problem?

    In the right resolution that logos don't overlap the kits. You can remove them in

    match incidents overview shirts5.xml and in match incidents overview shirts6.xml

    remove the following code in incidents overview shirts5 (and the equivalent in match incidents overview shirts6)

    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="hmtd" scale_picture="true" height="25">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="bottom" inset="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="30" />

    <boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true"/>

    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="home"/>
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt"/>
    </record>
    </widget>


    Hello flut.

    I have surrounded you with what I think is his problem. On the left window the logos and the jerseys are superimposed but not if we put the same preview in the right window.
    I modified the jerseys and the logos following the directions and that's how I noticed it.

    On your keyboard:

    - press the windows button then scroll down the menu until the screenshot is displayed. Open this one and then take a picture of your screen. Rename it and finally add it as an attached file with your text

    Sorry, it's no good to me. The problem, I think, is that the window on the left is smaller than the one on the right. If we put the same values ​​there, it does not fit well ... Can you look at the main panel to make a "reduction" just on the left one or even just put the two at the same value ? Because I don't know which panel it is anymore ('I have changed so much panels 😉😉 )

    From the first photo, I can already tell you that you don't have ssk shirts. Or the "config" file is not good.

    I send you my ssk file

    https://www.mediafire.com/file/ta6w3q4gutao4p0/ss_back_kits.rar/file

    and before the install, you must delete, or move, your kits folder from this folder (risk of conflict)

    Hi Rosek

    In my game the values I changed are now ok for all the bars as you can see in the screenshot.

    https://i.postimg.cc/yYgGTTVM/Sem-T-tulo-1.jpg



    Thus, maybe the better for you is do the following:

    1. duplicate match info overview shirts1.xml and change the name for match info overview shirts3
    2. open it and change match incidents overview shirts5 and match incidents overview shirts6 for match incidents overview shirts7 and match incidents overview shirts8
    3. duplicate match incidents overview shirts5 and match incidents overview shirts6 and rename that new files as match incidents overview shirts7 and match incidents overview shirts8

    4. in match touchline tablet slot nep1.xml (this is responsible for the left bar) or match touchline tablet slot ibh2.xml (this is responsible for the right bar) change match info overview shirts1 for match info overview shirts3

    5. in match incidents overview shirts7 and match incidents overview shirts8 change values of left inset and vertical inset (now are -13 and 30) adjusting it

    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="hmtd" scale_picture="true" height="25">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="bottom" inset="0" />




    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-13"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="30" />

    <boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true"/>

    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="home"/>
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt"/>
    </record>
    </widget>

    6. for the other bar (that one you didn't change match info overview shirts1.xml for match info overview shirts3 you just have to adjust the original match incidents overview shirts5 and match incidents overview shirts6.

    I made a mistake in match incidents shirts5 (I sent the wrong file). Now is okay (I edited the links in my post where I put the files - the post from 31 Jan 2021 17:47:48).
    However, if you want to better adjust adjust the kits/logos in the left bar, you just have to create new files for that bar, doing the steps I referred in my last post.

    I believe that now is quite correct. I had to work the length of the left and right columns afterwards. I find the result quite good.

    Good evening. The skin is very useful. Thank you. I have a question, but it is a goal scene in FM21. Assist players are not displayed. This is... Is it a skin issue, not a soft one?

    Hello, first question : what is your resolution ? I see, normaly you use not the version 2560*1440.
    On your first picture, the jerseys are in FC12 model and your outside is not. Try to put this if you want to keep the FC12 model:
