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.

    Quick question, why isnt my Competition Logo showing on my title bar?

     

    Plus Competion logo missing from Player screen

     

    Also the trophy ( i think) isnt showing on title bar either

     

     

    In the club images the logo that is showing refers to the background logo right.

    In the national/ competition logos it shows the flags as the national flags have been configured to use background logos right.

     

    What i might do tonight is configure my kits to show on both sides but home kit on left and away kit on the right rather than the faded background logo.

    Hmm…send me your kit icon34.xml and your player overview panel.xml and I will take a look on that files.

     

    Hi Flut,

     

    many thanks for the offer, but with the release of Rosek's v12 it is no longer necessary as everything works with his version.

    I didn't know beforehand how long the release of Rosek would take, so I wanted to play with your original skin first. But with the release, as I said, that was done.

     

    Nevertheless, thanks again for everything! 👍

    Hi Rosek and Flut,

    Thanks for your answer. I'm sorry but I'm not very good at coding and I was unable to find the lines in player overview panel.xml to move the kits to the left. and also I'm unsure which ‘option’ of your skin I'm using in my game. Any chance you could post a screenshot of the .xml file showing the lines to change, please?

    Thanking you in advance

     

    If you download Notepad++ HERE and use it to open the file you can see the line numbers. 

    And you should push this small arrow on the player overview and test all 6 options:

    Hi Qvordrup.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm on Mac and Notepad++ is a Windows software. I use BBEdit for creating and editing config.xml files on Mac. Unfortunately, the line numbers on BBEdit don't seem to match the line numbers posted by Flut/Rosek. Regarding the little arrow, I've only got 3 options: Player, Player Flut Card and Player Flut Stadium.

    Greetings. 
    Try to find in the lines of code of the "player ovewiew panel" the following terms:

    Icon34 and 36 : this is the parameters for the "Flut Stadium".

    Icon38 and 39 : this is for the Player

    Icon 42 and 41 : this is for the "Player Flut Card".

     

    After each pair of numbers, you will normally have the values for positioning the shirt.

     

    Hoping to help you in your task ...

    Hi @flut , thank you very much again for the hard work that's gone into the skin.  I downloaded version 12 and personally I prefer the layout of version 11, but I've deleted the old files.  By any chance is it possible for version 11 to be uploaded again so I can use that instead?  Both great skins, but 11 is just my own preference.  Thanks!

    In the download Package from v12 there are a folder called “Flutskin 12 alts” (Alternative files).

     

    There you´ll find many alternative files for every taste, i.a. Flutskin 11 style files.

     

    Please read the readme in this folder.

    Hi. MagiIc is right. You can use V12 with the player overview from V11.

    However, here is the link for V11

    Hi. is not easy to enlarge it and works well. However, you can try to do it in match caption panel small.xml 

    You can edit it in the following line of code, changing the width and the height.

     

    <container class="plain_box" entity_layout_id="at0c" id="comC" appearance="boxes/custom/match/tv captions/si tv/caption/footer/paper" width="50" height="38">

     

    However in order to adjust it well in the box you should edit other lines of code and I couldn't find exactly what is the codes to change. But you can try it. And if you find the solution I appreciate if you could share it.

    Hi don't know. In fact this skin slow down a little bit some panels (but just a little bit and only in some panels; and never massively). Maybe there is a conflict with other skins. Try to remove the other skins, download this skin again and reload the game….
