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.

    Follow the instructions in the PDF contained in the skin., basically you need notepad + + the downloaded kits folder copied over then change all the config.xml files using notepad + +  to change the following:

     

    All kits (Clubs/Nations)

    kits/home > logo/background/left
    kits/third & kits/away > (leave blank) - it removes this part of the coding

     

    Clubs only

    team > club

     

    Nation only

    team >  nation

     

    Something along the lines above will do the trick, if incorrect please correct me as i didn't have the pdf at hand.

    Hello Flut, first of all this is an amazing skin and you have clearly worked tirelessly on this.

     

    Is there any possible way to change the font of the kit number shown in the player profile screen?

     

    And also I've read about moving up the name and number but this hasn't worked for me. I copied the code and attempted trial and error but it didn't move after editing kiticon14?

     

    Thanks

    Greetings to all. 
    I would like to tell you that I will have difficulties to continue to make the updates of the skin in the resolution 2560*1440. 

    I am, at the moment, very busy with my work and the association I am in. 

    Sorry to have to put this project aside for a while. But I will try to continue to help those who need it as much as I can.

     

    If someone wants to do the updates for me, no worries for me. I think the boss will help him/her as he/she did so beautifully for me.

     

    Best regards.

    It's a pity, 😢 but RL always comes first. Therefore, thank you very much for the work you have done so far, Rosek! 👍
    Maybe you can work on it again sometime in the future. 

     

    Unfortunately, I currently don't see anyone who can continue your work with the knowledge.


    So my question to the boss himself: Flut, would it be possible that you take over Rosek's work in parallel to the normal version at least until he can work with on the Skin again?
    So would it be possible for you to publish both versions, the normal one and the one in WQHD?

    I think there won't be so much work with the 21er skin anymore, so it would be nice to at least get the final version in WQHD. 

     

    What do you mean, Flut?

    Hi

    In fact for now I have no time to try that. Sorry….

    Maybe I can do it later (however, I can't promise that) but I need the screenshots regarding the panels that need to be adapted, since I don't play in that resolution. If you want, you can send me those screenshots via PM and I can take a look on them if/when I have time.

    However, I believe Rosek will do it as soon as he can 🙂 🙂

     

    cheers and…sorry.

    Okay, thank you very much for your answer! 👍

     

    Yeah, it would really be better if Rosek did that. Unfortunately, I have no idea about it, I´m only just normal users.

     

    @ Rosek

    Could you maybe take care of Flut's request and hand over your work, so to speak? It would be really great if the WQHD version would continue. 😇

    There are problems with the skin.
    If I go to a player's profile, the bar on the left changes color to black.
    On the same page there is a problem with the shirt and logo that are cut off (despite the fix package).
    The latter problem occurs with all views of a player's profile found in the pack.
    To solve the problem I have to set "Zoom 85%", which shows that the problem is right there.
    For some packages, the nationality flag also goes too far to the left, disappearing or being cut off.

    For the rest, is there any way to manually set the color of the sidebars and the background image itself?

    Are you planning on releasing a light version of this? Those backgrounds on dark one always makes it hard for me to read anything. It is too cluttered imo. In the light one the background is not as prominent.

     

    Or is there a way to disable the backgrounds altogher?

     

    EDIT: I found there is the alt setting for it. So forget it.

    Greetings!

    Sorry for my poor English : )

    I encountered two questions:

    First one, in tactic panel, when the icons of the kits fade in and out, I can't drug the kits from one position to another. This troubles me when I adjusted my tactics. It's there any solutions for me? Here's the screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/leo2x3v

    Second one, when I use Flut Skin For 2560*1440, the home kit icons displayed smaller than usual. I don't know if it's a case or others have the same problem. What can I do for fixing it? Here's the screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/8EZKNoG

    Thanks a million for the skin. 

     

    Here's my issue, not by any means a game breaker but I'm curious about it: the prematch intro screen does not appear. 

     

    (This screen: 

     

    I never see this screen. When I enter the match, a blank text window (horizontal box at the bottom of the screen) flashes onto the screen for about a half second, disappears, and I see nothing but the players warming up. The screen depicted above never appears.

     

    This is on 1920x1080 full screen (or a 1920x1080 window, I've tried both). I've tried it on every text zoom setting, same result. Any idea what's causing this?

     

    Thanks 🙂

    Hi

    The bar changing for black is normal. You only have the club colour in the team panel. However, you can use the alt for the bar matching to the club colour.

    Regarding the other “problems”, you should play with sidebar icons only (the small sidebar showing only the icons, not icons+text) since, as I say in the skin presentation the skin was edited for working well with sidebar icons only.

    Regarding the second one I can't answer you since is not me who worked on that adapted version. Maybe Rosek, when (and if) have time, could answer you.

    Hi. I don't know the answer for your question but I believe that that  “problem” is not related to the skin. Maybe you are playing in a lower division and that panel is not displayed (the panel is not displayed in all matches…). The best way to analyse if the problem is related to the skin is to change for the default FM skin and see if the same happens.

    Hello I've downloaded and installed the 2d kits pack listed in the original post and placed it as instructed however only the front kit is showing itself correctly and the back is always a blank white kit as you can see in the screen it shows this way in both the “quickview” where you hover over a players info and their full profile page… as seen on two different players.
