Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN version 6.0 for FM22!!

Ten years (!!!!) after start editing the Flutskin I would like to give a great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still editing the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all of 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 thank you to all the skin makers who indirectly contribute to my work, and a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin), to MICHAEL MURRAY since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work, to QVORDRUP, for the metallic “Round country flags” and his great collaboration in the “country locator maps”, to NUNO KOPIO for the “Square shiny flags” I included as alt files (for using as an alternative to the “Round country flags”) and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin.

This FLUTSKIN for FM22 is almost equal to the last version of Flutskin for FM21. Therefore, you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present them here. I suggest you to see with your eyes all the changes!!

 

Main changes in 6.0 of FLUTSKIN:
- Home panel (individual match analysis included)
- Player popup panel (information about media handling style and personality included)
- Player profile panel (drop down arrow with two profile styles included; profile 1 as it was in version 5.0; profile 2 with the front and back kits instead of the attributes analyser)

 

The pack includes many alt files for customize the skin (please read the read me file included in the pack) and several tutorials: 1) how should be the configs for the stadiums packs; 2) how can you adjust the size and the place of the kit number in player overview panel; 3) how can you do the 2D kits adapted for Flutskin. BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ALT FOLDERS AND ALSO AT THE READ ME AND TUTORIAL FILES!!

If you prefer SS'kits as default kits, you can download this and replace the kits folder located here: Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\skins\fm2022flutskin_dark\graphics\pictures\kits
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.

 

The logos in country locators are now updated by  QVORDRUP  according the last version of metallic logos.

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.

 

Important note regarding kit number and name in the player overview panel:

Since many people asked about the adjustments in the number and name in the kits (in player overview panel), and also since I already answered that many many times, I decided to make my “job” easier, avoiding answering that question again, and again and again 🙂.

Thus I did a tutorial which is included in the skin pack.


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.

 

[b]How to add Flut Skin in FM22[/b]
Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2022flutskin_dark" folder here: 
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\skins

[*] Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
[*] Start FM22 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
[*] You should see FM 2021 Flut Skin dark - 5.0 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.

Thanks for asking mate, no and yes i guess is the answer.  I was diagnosed with something called FAP well that's the abbreviation.  Too long to type.  I had to have my entire large bowel removed or i would be dead within a year due to its aggressiveness.  That was 5.5 years ago.  Many complications including sepsis twice.  Many infections and poor treatment from a hospital which left me changing hospital and surgeon entirely. I have been housebound for nearly 3 years unless i starve myself for a day or two then i can make it to any medical appointments.

Up most of the nights with horrific pain and other embarrassing situations, one wouldn't wish to type haha

I'm overdue camera procedures by 2 years to see if and where the condition has or is spreading to (other organs etc) scans are meant to be every 6-12 months. So i am dreading when they do eventually go in to see what the state of play is… Only time will tell

 

Sorry to hear that buddy. Here’s hoping it all works out for you.

Sorry to hear, man. All the best to you, truly and sincerely.

(And apologies for sort of “eavesdropping”, it feels like, and butting in. Been a member here for a long time, not to mention that I would sympathise for the struggles of my fellow man regardless.)

 

I suppose for most of us long-standing members of the community, FM has been a considerable part or backdrop of our lives in one way or other for quite some time. Not too many games/game series are like that, really.

 

My journey as a manager began in 1999 with Championship Manager 99-00. Time spent on the game has varied through the different stages of my life, and (after having a kid in 2013) slowly but surely declined up to this year's game that I've barely touched - apart from the idling, testing, modding, editing, planning a perfect save, prepping and finally playing the early stages of a new season or two.

 

Since July I've been dealing with a divorce after fifteen more-or-less great years and a kid to boot.

Not feeling like pretty much any free time activity, even sports or computer games, mattered (for 2-3 months) was a whole new experience for me. To me, games have always been a safe haven of solace, enjoyment, carefree imagination, trying on different roles, learning new things and deep immersion.

 

I decided to buy FM 22 to add normalcy in my life, and to prepare myself for the first Christmas holiday alone since… well, forever, I suppose. Surprisingly, I've hardly had the motivation, time or level of concentration required to play the game I'm basically very interested and excited about.

I also play football IRL, and usually play FM actively during the off-season to deal with the footy withdrawals, but not this year apparently.

 

Also, didn't mean to hijack your post @Rich B , but rather to open up and share around the “campfire” that is Football Manager. It oddly connects us throught this great community, though our ages, locations and walks of life must vary quite a lot. And that is something pretty neat.

 

I wish you all a very good 2022. Stay safe and stay well!

Hey Flut. For the first time when I download your magic skin, I'm having trouble making it work. I can only choose from version 2.0, what is the reason for? I have tried downloading it from different platforms, I have removed all the old skins and downloaded it completely again but it still does not work. Thanks for the reply

When I downloaded and extracted the zip file I got a folder called “FLUTSKIN_FM22_V3". Inside this folder was another folder called “fm2022flutskin_dark”. I moved this to the skin folder and everything worked.

I think that is down to the person who did that version. Flut said I’m to update the non attributes if I wish as I did the removal of the attributes. So I presume it’s the same for the 3440x1440 version of fluts skin.

Hi

  1. First, download the skin again since in meantime I changed some alt files (you don't need to install the skin again, since I only changed alt files)
  2. After that open the folder FLUTSKIN FM22 3.0 alts
  3. Open alt match titlebar without managers - timer left
  4. Now you see 3 files. Copy that files.
  5. Place them in sports interactive/skins/flutskin/panels/match (overwrite the originals)
  6. Exit the game and reload it 
  7. Done 🙂

That panel should show two different stadium pictures. I believe you don't have one of the packs. You can check that looking to the configs in the stadiums packs and compare them with the examples I included in the Stadium CONFIGS Flutskin FM.pdf (there I explain what kind of configs should have each pack).

Thanks

When you extract the pack, please take a look inside the folder. There you will see a folder with the skin name. Is only that folder you should directly place in the skins folder. Don’t forget to clear the cache, keep this skin only in the skins folder (and remove all the previous versions of the skin) and reload the game.
