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.

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.

    Hi Flut.

    Congratulations on your work, this skin greatly improves the immersion in the game.

    I like to put this information during the game, but when I close the game it disappears and when I reopen the game I have to look for it again and put it again.

    Is there a way to keep it fixed once it is on and not disappear when the game is closed?

    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.

    Hi

    As you can see is okay in my game. If you didn't change anything in the skin pack, try to clear the cache, keep this skin in the skins folder only and reload the game.

    Thanks.

    Regarding your question try the following: go to match touchline tablet slot nep1.xml and change

     

    <widget class="match_view_selector_panel" id="nep1" pause_match_on_menu_opening="false" default_item="notd" file="client_object/client object viewer selector match" colour="match accent" alignment="centre_x" navigation_container="true">

     

    to

     

    <widget class="match_view_selector_panel" id="mtst2" pause_match_on_menu_opening="false" default_item="notd" file="client_object/client object viewer selector match" colour="match accent" alignment="centre_x" navigation_container="true">

    I've tried that to no avail, I don't think it's anything in your skin pack I must have some other file downloaded coming into conflict with it, perhaps a previous version of the 2d kits or something. In any case thanks for your response.

    HI all

     

    For those who want to make the game more difficult, now 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.

    Greetings. This is a known problem.

     If you have looked at the national team of the players you show on your screenshots, it is the background of the jersey of the national team that takes precedence over the club's. 
    Normally, if you reload the skin, the club kit will reappear.

    1/ Please write in English.

    2/ From what I understand, looking at your images, you want to change the colours of the attribute boxes. This cannot be changed in the settings you show.  
    To change them, you need to go to the file named "FM2021flutskin_dark settings" and using Notepad++, find the line <!-- background attribute box colours Flut 20 v2 -->

    little help please? So I usually use this skin when playing fm however since I recently started playing on new laptop and everything works fine until I get to half time of a game and the right hand side of the screen wont show “second half” tab to play and I don’t know why this is only on this skin and not a problem on others.

    Red box: Just like it spaced out a little more

    Blue Box: How to increase the size.

    Green box: The logo competition logo doesn't really show up

     

     

    1. If you follow strictly the instructions in the read me file you should have the sidebar with the colours of each team
    2. In player overview panel.xml, change the values of left inset in the code which are btween lines 1044 and 1104 
    3. For the kit name, go to kit icon38 and change the values of the following code

    <widget class="label" id="bNAM" size="11" alignment="top, centre_y, can_scale" font="fonts/kit name" colour="secondary" >

                               <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="69" />

                               <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="120"/>

                 </widget>

    1. You should duplicate your competitions logos folder and in the new folder change the config. The code should be how is in the following exemple

     

    <record from="100100" to="graphics/pictures/comp/100100/logo/background/right"/>

    Hi

    You should edit the correspondent graphics since the problem is the size of the graphics. You can do it in the following location:

    • for sidebar: boxes/flut/sb1  (I really don't remember if is that graphic but you can try to incresease the height of the file, reload the game ans take a look if it changed)
    • for pitch panel: boxes/flut/pitchtectics

    Hi

    That is related to your screen resolution (even in 1920x1080, I don't know why, in some screens that button don't fit the screen…). But you always can use the space bar of your keyboard, to continue the game
