Hi Joao,

 

Can you send a screenshot of the problem, as this might help me identify the problem?  Also, can you tell me which skin you are using and what resolution your screen is?

In the mustermann alternatives folder there is a readme.txt file that explains how. You can open an rgb color generator and play with it. Copy the rgb code from the settings file and see what color it is and which color you want instead

A few options here:

 

1) Try different logo packs.  I think most are at 200x200, so might not make much difference, but obviously wherever anything is scaled it will lose fidelity whether it is enlarged or shrunk.

 

2) Edit the .xmls and remove scaling, I've provided the code to change it to below.  This may cause problems if the logo file is bigger than the space it occupies.  Less of an issue if smaller, but it will just leave a little more space around it.

 

panels/club/club overview panel, row 12:

<widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="false">

 

panels/generic/sidebar menu table, row 140:

<widget class="picture" id="lgtF" scale_picture="false" keep_aspect_ratio="true" transparency="0.5" image_alignment="bottom">

 

3) If it's just the logo on the club overview header, you could edit the height of the panel.  Below I've made the header smaller, changing default height from 230 to 200:

 

panels/club/club overview panel, row 12:

<container class="bordered_box" appearance="mustermann/frames/frame" blue_replacement="fg" red_replacement="fg accent1" transparency="10" draw_vertical_dividers="false" inset="0" default_height="200">

 

*in terms of the header/search bar, I've not touched this in the skin, so there won't be a file to play around with that will directly target the logo up there.

Sorry, I meant stronger in color. If you look at my SS a few posts ago the Valencia logo on club profile in the bottom left corner looks a bit blurred/hidden behind the blue color. If I am making any sense.

 

I would like the logo to be on top so to say, to have the logo colors be more prominent instead of the sidebar color. Thanks

Apologies, I misunderstood.  Thankfully, it's in the same place as mentioned before - you will need to change the transparency. Perhaps counter-intuitively, you'll want to increase it from 0.5 to make it less transparent.  I'd recommend trying the below code.

 

panels/generic/sidebar menu table, row 140:

<widget class="picture" id="lgtF" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" transparency="0.9" image_alignment="bottom">

Thank you, this worked like a charm.

 

Can you take a look at this next SS please. Idk if I changed something or was it no green pitch on tactics screen from the start, but I would like to have the green pitch if possible please. Right now I have only black background.

@AML  The green had been taken out deliberately, so to change it back you'll need to edit panels/tactics/tactics overview side panel, row 68 and panels/tactics/tactics overview side panel minimised, row 69 to:

<container class="main_contrast_box_no_margin" entity_layout_id="it15" id="bakC" wants_mouse_events="true" inset="0" red_replacement="pitch_box_background" width="890" name="green background" navigation_container="true">

You might need to edit settings.xml as well, line 323.  The default would be:

 

<colour name="pitch_box_background"      value="rgb(0,125,63)"/>

There is a readme file in the Alternatives folder that tells you what to do.  Easiest way open two folders in separate windows: 

 

1) The alternative you want to use

2) The skin you are using

 

Copy the folder inside the alternative you want to use over to the folder inside the skin you are using.  When it asks you if you want to override the files, click yes.

Unfortunately I am now away for a course, and only have a Chromebook with me, so will be unable to give exact answers.  A couple of options:

 

1) Wait until Thursday.  The next update will include an option with the scorecards beneath the player picture.

 

2) Have a go at editing panels/player/player overview panel.xml - there will be a section marked as <!--PLAYER PICTURE--> and then a few lines below that a bit that starts <widget class="picture"… - add a blank line below with the following code:

 

<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="right" inset="-50"/>

 

You might need to play around with the value in inset.  If that ends up shifting the picture to the left, try a positive value instead of negative.  Sorry I can't be more definitive right now.

Hi João,

 

The attribute colours are controlled in settings/MustermannFHD settings.xml, rows 341-344.  They currently look like:

 

<colour name="low attribute"        value="bg lighter"/>
<colour name="normal attribute"       value="fg accent1"/>
<colour name="good attribute"        value="fg" />
<colour name="excellent attribute"       value="bg accent1" />

 

You will want to change the values for low attribute and normal attribute.  To make them a little more visible I'd recommend:

 

<colour name="low attribute"        value="card bg lighter"/>
<colour name="normal attribute"       value="fg lighter"/>
<colour name="good attribute"        value="fg" />
<colour name="excellent attribute"       value="bg accent1" />

 

I've still been unable to find out what's causing the other problem, but still got a few other ideas to try to see if that fixes it.  It is pure guess-work at the moment, so may end up being something I'll never be able to solve!!

@JoãoCarvalho92  There's been a breakthrough!!!  

 

The issue is caused by the customised start screen (the silly subbuteo image).  I'll be trying some fixes tonight or, if none of them work, I'll just go back to the default start screen.  Either way, there should be a new release by tomorrow morning.

excellent skin but would like a version without the stat boxes near the players faces, the updated version is better but would like to see the boxes either taken away or positioned away from the player faces. otherwise this is a top skin
