FM21 Rensie Purple & Dark skins - original post on fmrensie.net.

I decided to take make both Purple and Dark version again. The skin settings are from the Base skins made by michaeltmurrayuk who returned to the SI Forum.

That means both skins have the background support thanks to Michael and you can use the player/club/competitions etc. background images. Just reduce/increase the opacity, as you can see how to do it here.

Before many of you will ask, yes, the skin contains the Instant Result button. It’s here despite I’m not using it and I will take it out of my personal skin. But it’s easier to add it here rather than to face all the questions about it.

The main edits contain player overview/attributes screens, club overview, player popup profile (the one when you hover over the “i” icon) or non-player and your own manager overview.

Same as before, the skin contains many small edits and many small tweaks. But four from five people will never notice them.

And yes, the tactics screen contains player pictures. And no, there is 0% chance I will add the old suitability circles.

Main edited things

Player Popup – it was slightly edited for the new version including the kit with the name and number. I know the long/longer names will not fit precisely. Mainly within players who are using the first and second name at the back. You can set the nickname to the player for example.
Player comparison – edited to have bigger player pictures as in the past.
Club Profile – vertical & horizontal dividers added to this screen, the club details panel on the left side was edited (improved) by sorting widgets + icons were added.
Stadium profile
Home screen with more widgets – same system as in the player profile as you can select your own widgets here.
Human (your manager) profile
Non-player profile + popup – edited the height of the staff profile picture to ensure it fits the details panel
Team/Squad Depth screen made horizontal instead of vertical
Schedule screen without the white background + fixture details on the right side is wider with the more info
Past meetings screen improved – the right side width increased, the info is the same as in the schedule screen
Player pictures in the tactics screen
Instant result
Team of the Week pitch in the mailbox size increased – example
The kits widget size in the national team General/Overview screen increased – example

______________________________________________________________________________

*If you want to see nations flags in the player overview instead of the nations associations logos, don’t use the association’s logos within your logo packs.

** I didn’t edit the match panels/match in-between highlights panels. As you know, the match UI was changed for the FM21 and it would surely deserve some edit to avoid too many useless rooms of space but I don’t have enough time for it. Be sure to check SI Forum for the possible match screen mods or other skins if someone other will make it.

Credits

michaeltmurrayuk for the option to use his base skins, also with the background support option. IF you want to know how to change the opacity, just visit his website or the SI Forum.

Gaz / FMwkdsoul for his idea of the selector in the player overview screen as I saw it in screens from his skins on Twitter and decided to make it by myself.

FMEnhanced as I took the Instant Result option from his v2.0 version.

I was notified of the bug within player development/progress/attributes changes. The solution is simple – go to the skin folder/panels/player and delete “player attribute history” file and reload the skin. I left this file here by mistake.

Hi Rensie, absolutely love your work and look out for it every year! Again this years is awesome and looks great!

There is only one very small glitch I can see on your manager profile page. There is as small square bug that shows in the mental attributes section and the world map is not lined up.

would be great if you could let me how to fix this? Or update it.

Thanks again for your great work

The Boudebouz picture is taken from the Player/Attributtes screen. Berghuis is the Player Popup profile (the one when you hover over the "i" info icon.

This is all because of your resolution. If you will change the zoom option to 85% the panels will be smaller and you will see more widgets.

The skin is made for 1920x1080 resolution with 100%. That means not everything will work properly with smaller resolution.

I have tried loading this skin for 1920x1080 resolution with 100% and 85% and I still have data is cut off right side and bottom of my screen.

I have also tried windowed at 100% and 85% and again data is cut off the right side and bottom of my screen.

I thought I would try 50% but then the text is way too small on both windowed and 1920x1080.

Any suggestions please on how I can get my screen set up like yours @FM Rensie ?
Is it possible to create a zoom option between 50% and 85%?

I don't know what can be the exact issue but the one thing what I think is that you don't have your Windows screen set to 100% and it causes the zooming effect.

I was set to 150%. I didn't even know this! Switching to 125% has done the job nicely with FM21 skin set to windowed and 85% and I can now see season stats and career history on the bottom.

Thanks for the help 🙂

@FM Rensie Just a small suggestion but it would be great if you could add weak foot ability on somewhere on the profile page for players? Can only see preferred foot at the moment 🙂

Also out of curiosity, Is it possible to get numerical versions of Overall Physical Condition and Match Sharpness on this years game or do they have to be icons?

This is not a mistake or error of the skin. There is the option called "Automatically override custom panels?" in the Preferences/Interface. If you keep it selected, it will override the panels in the home screen but also in the player profile every time. Just untick the option, select your widgets, save the game, clear cache etc. You can also unselect this option straight in the home screen when you are selecting the widget. It's up the top of every widget. https://prnt.sc/wfsdkl

Rensie, this is a thing of beauty! Exactly what I have been looking for, close enough to the original skin but with some very subtle improvements. I stuck in the scoreboard mod from the SI Community skinning forum with full team name, kit and logo as you mentioned above and BOOM, perfection!

Thanks for your work man!

Hi! Where should I install the stadium pics as to be shown in Dark Skin? because I have them but the skin does not recognise any.

 

Thanks!

Hello, I have a tiny problem with the information panels during the match because in some key situation the panels do not disappear and you cannot see the pitch with the action. Can something be done about it ??

 

And the second question is, is it possible to change the color of the menu on the left, for example, to gray / black?

 

the last thing is when you play with a team that has a white main color, you can't see the editor icon ...

After the update today, the circles reappeared for role familiarity. I'm guessing that something changed which affected this skin. Would there happen to be an update coming soon? This is by far my favorite skin.

I noticed the reappearing role familiarity instead of the stars too. Good to know I am obviously not the only one noticing it and not the only one who was irritated because of it. Some of my player do not have any green circle at all too. Hope it can be fixed soon

I love this skin and made a small change, to make the “Continue” and other relevant buttons the default purple color as well:

 

Change this in the file Kojuro-v2.4.1 - Purple\settings\Kojuro-Purple-v2.4.0 settings.xml:

 

Change this line:

<colour name="fg accent" value="rgb(120,120,120)"/>

To:

<colour name="fg accent" value="rgb(100,30,170)"/>
