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
• “New” game processing panel (top panel changed)

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.

    Using the Cut-Out faces pack with your skin, resolution 1920X1080 i had an issue with the version 1.0. Faces were visualized half-cuted in the tatics panel . Did you solved it with version 2.0?


    Hi

    In fact I didn't change anything there since it works well in the 4K, the resolution I used. However, place a screenshot I will try to explain you how you can move the picture face a little bit.

    Hello

    Has anyone else had issues with season ticket holders number moving when you click the search bar at the top? No other texts moves.
    I am not sure which folder I should check in order to see what is causing the issue or if I can amend any digit.

    I am playing the game on full screen, and have tried zoom at 100%, 95% and 85% but still having the same issue. If someone has experienced the same issue or knows where I can locate the panel in order for me to look at instructions of the panel that would be much appreciated.

    Now the situation is more better but i still have this issue like you can see from the picture of the defensive player on the left, the face is half-cuted. I use 100% zoom

    In the prematch panel too. Here the face of one player is half-cuted and other one totally disappear

    Is there anyway to move the centre panel with the face and shirt the Attributes and swap it with the personal details on the left panel on the left? They are both the same size but as it’s now in the centre it covers the faces of all my player backgrounds 😓

    Hi. I have downloaded this skin and used the same graphics as I had for fm20. My problem is that all graphics work but not the big pictures of English & Spanish league teams, the small club team brands work. What too do??!!

    Hello. I just saw that it did not work ... Sincerely sorry ...
    Simple question: what is the value of the resolution you used ?
    for my part I use this one :

    1680x1050 with a zoom out of 85 % and i have no problem...


    I hope this will help you.

    Thanks for coming back to me. I am using 1920x1080, with a zoom out of 95%.

    I will try what you said later on - 1680x1050 with a zoom out of 85 % and see how it goes

    Hi Flut

    Thanks for all your help.

    I've managed to sort the issue by deleting the code you suggested and bringing the 'zoom' down to 85% - I have also duplicated the kits into my logo folder. However - the kits still aren't showing on my player screen. I can see you added a document to help with this but I am on a Mac and Notepad++ isn't available for it. Any other ideas? I have attached a pic of what it currently looks like.

    Thanks again

    No still didn't work. I think there must be something in the panel that I can change, as the other bits of information remain in place. It must be something minor, hopefully Flut might know.

    Hi all

    Since I noticed that the skin doesn't work so well I expected in 1920x1080 and the majority of FM players use that resolution, I'm now adjusting in order to made the skin tottaly compatible with 1920x1080 (100% zoom), icons only, full window. The skin also will be comptible with 4K, 100% but with 200% in display settings of the windows.

    Thus, since I have to work on the adjustment, editing again many xmls I already edited I will not answer any questions untill the update. Sorry.

    Odd glitch, almost fully transparent & unreadable statistics/info window during a match...

    I know Flut doesn't currently have time to answer questions because they're busy with the next version of the skin, but would someone else happen to know how to fix the following issue:

    I use the latest Flut skin (dark, 2.0). Yesterday when I played a match in FM 21, I opened the small statistics/rating/body language etc. info window on top of the match view, but this time the info layer/window that opened was so transparent that I could hardly see the outlines of it and could not read any data from it or make out the buttons in it. I tried closing it and opening it again, pressing play and pausing a bit later and then opening the stats, but it stayed bugged out for the rest of the match. It really made the rest of the match difficult for me, since I couldn't see the stats and make tactical tweaks based on the information.

    Has anyone else had an issue like this?

    Thanks so much for v2.1 was really hoping this would sort my issues out but sadly still the same bugs as before, see pic.

    https://imgur.com/gallery/r51rc1v

    Also player backgrounds are no good with this version as the player and kit panels in the centre now cover up the player face on the background.

    I know there are changeable other panels on the player screen, was hoping they could be switched the left like last year

    Thanks anyway though, I know you can't solve everyones problems 😓

    If you are using 1920x1080 icons only and full window the skin should work well.
    If you are not using it and already fixed that problems for the other versions of the skin you just have to edit the same xmls I indicated for solve that problems in the last versions.

    It does, it’s superb on my 24” monitor 1920 x 1080 100% full screen

    Best way to load is exit game, delete previous version, download and add new version, reload game-perfect

    Going to try and make those amends again and will use Icons only.

    Still can’t get the front SS kits to show properly as the existing kit face in the skin is still showing behind it.

    Hi Flut,

    first of all really nice work on that skin. I am an absolut fan of your skin since years.

    for me its the best skin.

    But i have to post this and hope you can help me. If there is halftime or the ending of the game - i cant continue the normal way. I always have to go over tactics and then in the right top corner to continue.

    I made some screenshot so you can see my problem.

    Thank you in advance 🙂
