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.

    Hi, 

     

    I was wondering how you can move the players surname up? I was going into panals then generic and then into kit icon 14 and then under name of player adjust the numbers to suit. Whatever numbers I change the position of the surname doesn't change. I know in earlier versions of the skin the surname would move. 

     

     

    Hi

    What is the drop down arrow option you use?

    Hi 

     

    Thanks for coming back to me. I am using the Flut stadium card. TBH I just noticed the rest of them there, for the stadium card which kit icon number would I use?

     

    For the different profiles which kit icons do they match.?

    I know in the generic folder there's a lot of kit icons.

    can you include: the match timeline that shows when cards and goals happened, and also where the highlights were. I know FM21 does this for match replays, but I'd love if I could find a skin that would do this for currently-ongoing matches.

    Hi

    To edit the height of the boxes in the staff page, go to team staff subteam vertical.xml and change the values in

     

     <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" layout="330,280,-1" offset="0" gap="0"/>

     

    (you should decrease the first and/or the second values of layout and not change the third one (the value -1).

     

    Regarding the other requests, the first two requests, I believe are not possible in this FM; the third, I really don't know.

    However, in spite of that, as I said, the skin is done. Now, is time to stop and I don't intend to change anything more.

     

    cheers

    That is the issue with English teams in Europe, you need the in game editor and go in and remove kits used for Europe and refresh the skin and they will appear

     

    Thanks that worked!

     

    One more question. The international team logos seem to be missing for some teams on the player profile screen and the international team screen (whereas some teams have them), any ideas?

    No logo on international team screen.

    Hi there, excellent skin you made.

     

    I'm just having a few issues, the heart emblem and the nationality emblem are in the way of the height and weight information . Is there a way to fix it? Also there are a few glitches on the player profile page and where it should say Midfielder (Centre). How would I fix this?

    Hi

    You should tell me what is the option you are using (the option of the drop down arrow), since with your screenshot I can't identify it.

    Hi

    Thanks.

    Regarding the problems, all are related to your screen resolution and/or to the fact that you are using the wide sidebar (the bar in the left). You should use the sidebar icons only (you can choose it in the preferences of the game).

    I changed the sidebar settings and it helped, I also changed resolution and zoom settings and this was the best I could get. 

     

    Also there is a blue glow on the players picture, any other ideas?

     

    Your help is appreciated.

    Hi @flut , and everyone!

    Funny problem never encountered on previous versions of the Flut skin:

    When I choose the v16 skin on the preferance page, there is no way to confirm changes made - the Confirm button ramains inactive (see screen shots).

     

    I tried a work-around by loading the standard FM skin, then choosing the v16, but it simply loaded the V15 again. Weird. Anyone experienced the same or know how to make the game load V16.

     

    Anyway, thank you very much to flut and everyone who have contributed their precious time (and probably money) to make this fantastic skin!

    Take out all other skins and just leave flut v16 in and load your game from there no need to go into your prefs if your loading the game from your desktop as the v16 will show up if its still doing the same then flut will be the best to advice you further

    If you are referring to the blue box behind the player picture is everything okay. That box is coloured according to the team colour.

    Thanks Jeff. And yes, I believe is a conflict (for example the chosen skin is v16 but in the screenshots, in intro panel we can read v15 (?). HansaPilsner should keep only v16 in the skins folder.

    Firstly thank you very very much for the fantastic skin, the game looks totally different, player boxes remind somethin from the beginning of 00's :-)

     

    But i have one problem: during the match, highlights to be particular, the stats screen does not disapper, so i have only half of the screen view is it just me or it is the common issue, and if there is any possibility to fix it: to make match stats disappear during the highlights. Many thanks in advance!

    Hi, all!

     

    Yeh. I made the v16 work, but still strugling with the resoultion. During matches only half of the left panel (while waiting for highlights) was showing. So, I fiddled a bit around with screen size and resolution but to no avail. I'm on 3840 x 2160 at 110%. That worked well on v15, but at v16 I get that half left panel between highlights. As I said I fiddled around with other sizes such as 2560 x 1440 which the v16 is primarily set to, but no matter the % I can't get it to fir my screen. I've gone back to v15, but would prefer the v16, so any help very much apprechiated :-)

    Hi, all!

     

    Ouais. J'ai fait fonctionner la v16, mais j'ai toujours du mal avec la résolution. Pendant les matchs, seule la moitié du panneau de gauche (en attendant les moments forts) était visible. J'ai donc un peu bricolé avec la taille et la résolution de l'écran, mais en vain. Je suis sur 3840 x 2160 à 110%. Cela a bien fonctionné sur la v15, mais sur la v16, j'obtiens ce panneau à moitié gauche entre les hautes lumières. Comme je l'ai dit, j'ai bricolé avec d'autres tailles telles que 2560 x 1440 sur lesquelles la v16 est principalement définie, mais quel que soit le%, je n'arrive pas à l'obtenir pour mon écran. Je suis revenu à la v15, mais je préférerais la v16, donc toute aide est très appréciée :-) 

     

    Hello. 
    From what you describe, you are using a much higher resolution than I am using ( 2560 * 1440). Have you tried the original skin made by Flut or only the 2560*1440 version? Have you tried changing your screen settings?
    It happens, according to my last information, that depending on the size of the screen ( 27" - 32" ) and the shape (flat - curved ) of your screen, each skin reacts differently.

    To help you even better, please add screenshots.

    The community is quite active and so is the skin master.
    Best regards.

    Hello @Rosek 

    Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, sorry about the screenshot. Now included below.

    I currently use 3840 x 2160 (at 110%) as it's the resolution preferred by my PC, but yes, I have tried other resolutions at different % but they do not fit my 28" flat screen well at all.

    I only use skins made by Flut and have never in any previos version of 21, or even earlier years, encountered any problems what so ever usig his skins on my current PC.

    From what I have gathered from other problems posted here I do have a resolution issue, but I am not technically competent enough to solve my own puzzle in this case. So, hopefully the screenshot, my current settings, and my screen size will make sense to a friendly soul on here. 

     

    Anyway, thanks again Rosek
