FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 13.0

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 Qvordrup, 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 13.0 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 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 👍
