FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 12.0

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 12.0
- New player overview panel (now the player overview panel from FlutsKin FM18 returns but, of course, updated; and you have six options to choose in the drop down arrow; at least one of the options works well with DF pictures)
- Club overview panel tweaked, namely regarding the key players panel.
- Some bugs fixed
- That's it. I had doubts about releasing this version now, but given the requests related to the new Player overview panel, I decided not to make you wait any longer. Thus...I hope you enjoy it!!

Main changes in 11.0
• “New” game processing panel (top panel changed)
• “New” Team selection advice popup (width/height increased and player pictures and nation flags included)

Inbox content with competition review panel (right panel increased; left panel with larger logos)

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 12.0 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. 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

     

    I believe the nicknames missing are related to the real fix names file and not with the skin. Last year I used it and the nicknames started missing. I tested removing the real names fix and the nicks were return.

    That is not the skin doing that. If you have changed the names via a lnc file that is the problem.

     

    If you use THIS and apply it before starting a game then the french clubs (and any other) will have nickames 👍

    Use the real name change on our site HERE , and apply it before starting a game then the nicknames will still be there 👍

    But I already have these files in my game ... 🤔🤔

    Utilisez le changement de nom réel sur notre site ICI , et appliquez-le avant de commencer un jeu, les surnoms seront toujours là 👍

     

     

    Edit : 
    I checked, updated some of my files compared to the one you sent me and it's still the same problem.

    I then tried by deleting all the other folders and to leave only those of this site => Same problem.

    No nickname only for French clubs. All the other championships seem to work ... 🤔🤔🤔

    Hello.

    I finally found out why I didn't have the nicknames for the French teams.  

    It was a problem with my choice of the data language. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️


    I put to you the error I made in attachments. Now they are displayed. 😊😊

    Hey guys I was wondering if I could have a bit of assistance.

     

    The first screen grab is using the alt side bar to match the club colours. The only problem is, that when the club/competition is white you can't see any of the icons?

     

    The second screen grab is from the scouting report, and the club logo behind the kits is too big. Any idea how to change this?

     

    Thanks

    Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place… Using Flutskin and in the last couple of days noticed that the star ratings in a players “position” box have vanished. The game is updated, my graphics are updated, I've installed Flutskin 8.0… Just wondering if anyone has any bright ideas as to why this little part might not be displaying correctly for me. Thanks.

    Hi everyone. 

    Following the update of FM21, some icons no longer appear ....

    I looked on the SI site and I already found how to put the stars back on the favorite positions panel on the player's page. (see previous message)

    For those who are interested, I have modified  the colors of the calendar so that it is in the colors of your club. 

    The only downside that I noticed is that it makes today's date disappear (since the writing also uses the second color)

    You will find it here to replace it:

    Hello. Glad to hear that your first problem is solved. 

    Okay, let's tackle your second problem.

    Regarding this one, I would have liked to know if the rear kit is displayed or not after a few moments?

    And if so, does the logo remain behind the two kits or only with the front kit ?

    Hello everybody,

     

    The icons that are no longer displayed are linked to the winter update and also to the "properties" folder of the skin. So if you want the logos to reappear, you just have to delete this folder for now. But this deletion will lead to the disappearance of the "Overall Physical Condition / Match Sharpness" (old version display)

     

    I am already working on this problem and will get back to you as soon as I find, or Flut, a way to make this bug work again.

    So far, I have not yet managed to display fatigue again. The rest is good.

    Hello, I have one problem with the Flut skin. The manager profile panel is not quite right - you can see the Nation flag is over the Manager's name. Does anyone know how to fix this? Everything else looks ok so far.
