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.

    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 👍

    Ok. Thank's.  👌👌

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

    I reload it and compare it with what I have. I think I'll find out what's going on  🤞🤞

    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 ... 🤔🤔🤔

    Even if the weather is fine, is it raining? I think it's raining. Is this side bad?

    Have you put an alternative “real weather” mod in your ED, my experience is they are not good or realistic

    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:

    Ok then try to see the "menubar" folder. There are all the files for the icons. Double click on one of them. Normally a page of your notepad is displayed.

    The last line of code should display the term "secondary" instead of "white".

    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.
