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)

Inbox content with competition review panel (right panel increased; left panel with larger logos)

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.

    You should play in 1920x1080, icons only, full window. In my game all the continue butons work well.
    Andrea: Rearding the colours of the continue button, go Football Manager 2021\skins\fm2021flutskin_dark\graphics\chrome\buttons\continue\button.xml
    And change

    <colour id="red_replacement" name="primary"/>

    <colour id="green_replacement" name="text"/>
    <colour id="blue_replacement" name="black"/>


    Charlston and McG84: Thanks!!

    Makboss: I really don't know. But for now I'm not working on alts since the skin need to be improved. Only and if I consider the skin "finished" I can start working on alts. Sorry.

    Hi Flut,

    Thanks for bringing out an updated version, greatly appreciated.

    I just had a question is there anyway I can sort out the manager panel on the club overview screen? The date of birth is under the managers name so just wondered if this can be moved or taken out at all?

    I have attached a screenshot with the problem circled πŸ™‚

    Many thanks

    Hi
    Is weird that bug if you are using 1920x1080 full window, icons only
    However, you can adjust the name in the following piece of code in person snapshot club overview16.xml

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="101"/>

    Hi,

    When you go onto the tactics screen and look at your players roles, I was wondering if there's anyway of making the important attributes area viewable in full size without having to scroll to see the attributes at the bottom.

    Underneath is the player traits box which is fairly big and seldom do you get anymore than 3 traits per player, so that could potentially be space that could be used to enlarge the important attributes box.

    Morris: indeed that button is cut in certain panels. I already changed a little bit the match titlebar and now the button it seems ok. This change will be included in the next version of the skin.

    McG84: thanks. In fact I didn't start changing that panel (for now is default of SI) but I already thought that that "thing" is for hange. Thus if I will not forget I will increase the height of that panel in order to all the attributes can be displayed withou scrolling.

    jassar: sory but I didn't understand what are you talking about. That panel is the default panel of the game, I didn'tchange anything in the IBH panels...

    Hello Flut.
    Small message to say that at home everything is working well and thanks to your tutorial, I even managed to add the national team jerseys.
    But my post follows our conversation about the compare button not working, I got an idea. If this button was linked to the button that we activate in the player "reports/overwiew", it should probably work and thus avoid switching between player pages.

    cordially

    Check out the instructions in the "2D as left logo" information. You need to place your current correct kit into that logo pack and it will show up.

    the new football manager 21.2 update as broke the skin on my laptop mate. it freezes and lags between pages etc. The skin was working perfectly until i updated the game so i guess its something sports interactive has done, i tried some other skins after the update [the andromeda skin] and this also is pausing and lagging between pages.

    Hello

    Just to make people aware the new update has impacted with Flut's Skin. If you look at my attachment it has the players bio listed 3 times. I've not yet played much of my new save with the new update but that was the first thing I clocked. No doubt there might be other discrepancies that other players might pick up.

    Yeah you're right, just played a few weeks there in a new save and it's lagging big time. I think anyone with a different skin to the standard one will have issues. Hopefully it's an easy fix. With Flut latest update my game was running perfect.

    Just to confirm same thing here. Loading pages takes easily 3 to 5 seconds while it was instant before the latest update.

    I'm sure it will be temporarily and have full confidence Flut will be able to fix it. Would hate going back to the original skin.

    I'll try reload and cache again to see if it helps. -> nope, didn't help

    Just out of curiosity, this is the first time that I have used Flut skin (no idea why I haven't used it before) did this happen last year too with updates in the game?

    After a lot of testing I've discovered If you use any 3rd party skin with a lot of content, after the 21.2 update, the screen lag is there. You'd think Si would have checked that before releasing, cos let's face it, who would voluntarily choose to use the default skin !

    The difference between Flut skin and the original is night and day. Flut Skin makes you want to play the game, the original skin is basic to say the least in comparison.

    I note that you said SI do the same every year, so I am guessing there is a fix around the lagging, just a case of Flut working his magic πŸ‘
