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

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.

    Followed what you said about paths for folders, still this. 

     

    No biggie and I can deal with it just strange is all bud :-)

    I've found the best way to stop kit anomalies is to delete any competition specific kits (FA Cup,Carabao Cup,Champions League etc) and just have the one with no competition attached. This will then show up in every game, regardless of any competition. It can be done via the editor but that does mean having to start a new game. The easiest way is to use the kit editor in the IGE and that works with your saved game file, so no loss of progress and career.

    This is exactly how I resolved the Liverpool and Arsenal kits not show in 3D games, used the IGE and deleted the specific competition kits

     

    i think the issue he is having is more about the 2d kits as logos rather than the picture/kits

    Dear all

    Considering the fact that many people want to play the skin with the TV logos, I will release a new version today later with that change and with other (just a few) changes. 

     

    Thank you again for your support and a special thank you to Rosek and also Evil_Muffin (without your help I really couln’t handling all the questions and requests)

     

     

    tommov2: thanks. Yes, you can do it. In this new version, go to match touchline tablet panel.xml and in lines 87 and 130 reduce the value 340.

     

     

    McG84: for display the kits in player overview panel and also in the titlebar, you should use the pack of 2D kits for Flutskin (in the skin presentation I included the links for that)

     

     

    Billy07: thanks! Regarding your question, as Evil already said, the answer is no. You just need the right packs, including the 2d kits for flutskin (you should download that pack following the links I put in the skin presentation; after download the pack you should place it in the logos folder of the game – not the skin). And…sorry but I don't know what is that image of arenas. In fact, when you don't have the image of the city or the stadium, an image saying “coming soon” is displayed (that images are in the skin folders). However, if you move your packs inside the skin folders, your packs (at least some of them) are read by the game before that folder with "coming soon" image (the game read the folders in alphabetical order). Thus, that image you like, is in one of your packs.

     

    Cheers @flut  all worked out cool thanks for you time

    Mr. old_school: the skin doesn’t have any kind of fix. Thus,  if you want them (such as the competition colour fix and others)  you should manually download them.

     

    Alfeiten: that bug is weird (namely the fact that the 99 – Troy Deeney should not be displayed). Did you download this version and totally removed the previous version? If so, try to clear the cache and reload the game.

     

    Joyboy: you should have the pack for that stadiums image since in that panel the stadium pictres alternate between inside of stadium and outside view of the stadium (thus you should have te two stadium packs). If you download the stadiums background megapack and the citypics released by @DazS8  everything will works.

    Good evening everyone. 

    Small passage to tell you that my version of the skin for the resolution 2560 * 1440 is in the final phase.

    I am already sending you the first version, with its supplied "alt" folder, which works quite well for me :

     

    https://www.mediafire.com/file/sxu9o7zh8c86c3o/FLUTSKIN_2560x1440V9.1.rar/file 

     

    Do not hesitate to report any faults.

     

    Good game everyone.

    Hello tommov2. 

     

    To change the logo of the TV, there are two ways to do this.

     - You can either create a logo with its assigned number (at home, being French, I put the number of the "TV logo 5" to the "Canal + Sport" logo and I add the number in the corresponding lines of code in the appropriate panels.

     

     - Otherwise, take the logo you want to display, name the "TV logo" and replace the ones that are already named like this (skysport by default). Then recharge your skin.

     

    Hope to have you help.

    Hello.

    When you have downloaded the skin, there is a folder called "Flutskin 9 alts". 

    In this there is a folder called "alt kit logo on player profile fixed". Open it and copy the "panel" folder into the one already present in the original skin.

    Then reload the theme, remembering to uncheck the cache memory.

     

    Good game.

    Hello. Is your problem only in 2D view ? Or it also happens in 3D view ?

    Try to make a soccer match in 3D and let us know if that also happens.

     

    Waiting for your answer, sincere greetings and good game.

    Hello boss.

    I hope you and your family are doing well.

    I noticed that on my calendar, modified with the colors of the club, the information that I am highlighting for you does not appear in the panel of the day. I suspect that it is necessary to change the colors but I look for and modify as I go along when I see "gray" written, but nothing changes ... 

     

    Could you help me ?
