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.

    Thanks Andrea for your explanation. In fact I tested the skin in a screen 1920x1080 and not in a laptop.


    I imagined it. I cannot expect everyone to use a laptop and be aware of the problems that may arise

    something like this? Or with a colour in the boxes (I used grey for on the pitch players and black for substitutes). I also increased a little bit the players boxes.

    Player popup panel (fitness/sharpness in FM20 style and player morale included) , if the panel is showing all the time, should the % fitness decrease as game ticks on ? It stays at the starting levels for me until I pop the panel down and bring back up, that seems to refresh it.
    Is that right ?

    In fact the values only update when we go out and return (the same regarding the bottom bar with the players during the match) or in the mid and fulltime. In the stats, if you choose Misc view the values care continuosly updating. I don't know why in certainly panels the values not update continuously.....thus, I don't know how to fix them.

    I like most of this skin but i wanted rid of the purple colours so i took majority of the data from FMSCOUT-FM21-Instant-Result-Dark settings file which is mostly the colour scheme and pasted into your settings file for the dark version.

     

    Attached is what i did but i feel it still needs some tweaks but if you could do something very similar or better please do.

     

    Edit: still a few sections with slight purple but imo some parts better.

    Hi,

     

    I'm having a crash when I go to my manager profile while I'm coaching Capo di Leuca and San Marino at the same time. I'm not encountering the same issue with another combination of club and nation. If I resign from my club, the issue persists. If I resign from San Marino national team, I can properly view my manager profile. Why this occur?

     

    If i change skin this crash doesn't occur

    Thanks. In the next release I will include a settings.xml similar to yours. I believe only the fg accent colour is a little bit lighter - like Rosek did - since there are some panels with “selection” colour and with the blue you use, the text is not well readable  (and I couldn't find the xmls for some of them in order to change that colour for another colour; I only found some of them).

    I really don't know why it happens. Thus, I can't help you. Sorry.

    I had similar issues this is what i did I'm not saying it will work for you but its worth a try  

     

    Right click on your window key at the bottom of your screen on the left and click on Run the type appdata 3 yellow folders will come up click on local then look for Sports Interactive folder and click on it then click on Football Manager 2021 folder in that folder you will have a Preferences folder you need to delete that or put it on your desktop load your game in clear cache and reload your skin

    Mine was just a simple copy and paste but if you can implement something to remove majority of the purple to make it classed as “Dark” this would be perfect. I've got a lot of catching up with skinning as its been a long time since i last did some tweaking etc.

     

    Feel free to change the blue sections and make it in the Flut style, looking forward to the new version 👍

    You need to delete the old version first, and then put the new version in exactly the same location (not overwrite the old version).
