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.

    Hi

    Please use the alt file. Please read the read me file included in the skin pack.

    You should use the “alt kit logo on player profile fixed”

    Hey @flut , quick question if I may.

     

    How do I edit my player overview kits? I tried the alt and it still didn't fix (If I even needed it). The kits are already licensed in the game but don't show up here.

     

    Any help would be great :)

     

    Also, I put the SS kit folder in the skin, do I need to transfer over all my kits to the skin too?

    Hello, 


    Your kits are in the wrong place. Try to feel them like this:

     

    C:\Users\xxx\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\pictures.

     

     

    But to have them on the player sheet, you have to make a copy of the file and modify the "config" so as to display the jerseys as indicated by the PDF attached by Flut to the download.

     

    I also see that you have not updated the "icon16" because you have too many logo on your image.

     

    Good game

    Good game

     

    So i have my main kits in “C\Users\xxx\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 21\graphics\kits". Where do I duplicate them to? It says logos, so should I just place them next to my metallic logos pack? Or do I put the kits into the skins folder? It says put it in the FM21 folder under logos but my logos directory is “C\Users\xxx\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 21\graphics\logos\pictures” and then I have 4 folders in there for “flags”, “logos”, "media", and "trophies". So do I put the kits in the first logos or second logos?

     

    Which config am I supposed to be modifying? It does not really specify in the pdf

     

    I use SS kits, so if I can get as close to a guide as possible then that would be great.

     

    I am so close and this skin is perfect. Just need to iron these tiny issues that I have out.

     

    Thanks again for your help :)

    Ok. You have the kits in the right place.
     

    Create a new sub-folder in the "pictures" folder, call him ( ex "club") and copy What's in your "kits" folder into it.

     

     After that, in this new folder, find all the "config" files and modify them following the PDF.

    Oh I see. I'd go and edit each config for each kit folder. That's going to be a lot of work, so I will try it later. Thank you.

    Any idea if this skin would work with FM Touch or if you would consider making a touch version?

    I really like the skin however it doesn't seem to fit my default resolution of 1366 x 768. I am assuming thats the issue, i have tried running it on the 2 other resolutions and the same problem exists, if not worse. This is how it looks, any ideas on a fix?

    Lowering the text size would be the best option and removing the sidebar text having only icons makes a little more space

    What do you do about the kits that are already licensed in the game? For example, the Canadian league is already in the game with their kits. How do you go about making them visible since there is no config file?

     

    The rest I understand now, thank you for helping and sorry for so many questions. This is what I have now, and it is looking good. Only annoyance is that I have to zoom in so much since I use a 2560x1440 resolution.

    Ok. I see it's better. Good job 👍👍

     

    For your screen resolution problem try this :

     

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/gw74ql0uxka87w6/flutskin2560x1440.rar/file

     

    Remove the flutskin you have and replace it with this one.

     

    It's almost like the original skin except that:

     

    -the player's face is on the left (if you want to keep it in the middle, you can do it with the alt provided)

    - the club logo is now centered in relation to the original.

    - when you choose your team composition, there are no longer any distinct colors and the whiteout is also removed (also possible to revert to the original via the alt file)

    I still have to zoom in to 110% because it is still a little small at 100%. Do you know why the numbers on the kit are so small now?

    Hello. Thanks for the message but it's Flut the MVP. He helped me greatly to achieve this resolution.

    If I understood your message correctly, if you put the skin, and your screen too, with a zoom to 100% in 2560x1440, the writings are too small ?

     

    The problem is that If you modify either the zoom or the resolution of your screen it will affect the positioning or / and the size of some points of the skin.

     

    Normally it gives that. This is what I have at home,  as I use this resolution :

    Thanks. I will just use 100% then. 110% just made it a little easier to read some things. Yours looks the same as mine as far as I can see. Thanks for all your help. Thanks to flut too if he reads this.

    If when you wrote [team name] you put exactly the name of the png picture the config is okay. If so, maybe you have other folder with that kind of config (left logo) and the game is reading it before (the game read the folders in alphabetical order).

    Ok. No problems.

    I just have a question about to the skin.

    I noticed that French clubs no longer have nicknames.

    I know some of them and therefore I would have liked to know which folder it corresponds to in order to be able to add them ?

     

    Thank's
