I'm happy to present you my first own skin, which I'm creating in collaboration with the biggest German FM-Streamer and Blogger FM.Zweierkette. πŸ˜€

 

 

The skin is a dark version and characterised by its small improvements, paired with the colours and features of FM.Zweierkette, without being far away from the original FM user interface.

 

It is important to us not to change the FM user interface too drastically, but to expand it in a meaningful way.

 

Please note, however, that with this skin I am leaving my usual environment of pure graphics editing (e.g. my Norseman's Logopack) and entering new territory with skinning. Therefore, not everything will run smoothly right away and there will still be some minor bugs here and there. But I'm having a lot of fun with it and I'm trying to acquire the knowledge quickly in order to get better at it.

 

That's why I'd like to thank the skin creators, who have been doing a great job for years, inspiring me to create my own skin and from whose work I can learn and understand a lot.

 

 

Credits and Thanks:

 

- Flut Skin

- MichaelMurrayUK

- FMEnhanced

- AlexMorak

- TCS Skin

- Tato Skin

 

 

Features:

 

- New Player Profile and PopUp

- New Club Page

- Extended Scout-Card in the Scout-Centre and E-Mails

- Player Positions in FMZ-Colors

- Touchline Tablet with more informations

- Simulate Match Button

- Game Processing Screen with more information

- Extended Matchday Presentation

- More improvements will follow...

 

Please note that the skin requires a minimum resolution of 1920x1080 and the pure icon sidebar to be displayed correctly. I will work on covering all resolutions, but this will take time.

 

 

How to use the FMZ-Skin on FM22

 

Move the downloaded .fmf file to your skins folders, by default located at:

> Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2022 > skins >

Go to preferences in-game, select the skin and hit Confirm.

 

 

Feedback and bug reports are welcome, so feel free to write me if you notice any bugs. πŸ˜€

And I also have a direct question for the experienced professionals here. πŸ™‚
 

How do I get rid of the zero of the kit? The player doesn't have a shirt number or a club, so there shouldn't be a number there. Unfortunately, I can't get rid of it. 😒

Thanks for posting. Just so you know this won't appear in the Skins Viewer or be promoted via Social Media and Email if it's just a forum topic. It needs to be properly shared to the site using the β€œNew Post > Download” option.

 

I can convert it if you wish πŸ™‚

Hey. Thanks for offering to help. πŸ™‚

 

Yes, I had a problem creating a download as I either have to upload the file here or to Mediafire. However, the link to the download should refer to the FM.Zweierkette page, as it is a cooperation project.

 

I just don't know if that's ok for you, so I just made a normal forum post to be on the safe side. πŸ™ˆ

Yep we require all files are uploaded here, but normal users are still sent to the mirror you choose. 

 

I don't know how long you've been around the community but in the past other popular sites have been megaupload, filefront and rapidshare and they're all dead now, meaning all the graphics created for FM2005 - FM2012 are lost forever, and there was alot of great content.

 

So we require uploads now so this doesn't happen again, this way there's multiple copies (we backup to both Digital Ocean and Amazon Web Services) as well as your original on FM.Zweierkette or mediafire, mega or whatever.

 

Plus for things like Kits we open the packs and read the config.xml to tell you exactly what's in them and build a large database showing completion stats which wouldn't be possible if it was all on 3rd party sites.

 

But normal users are will still be sent to FM.Zweierkette.

 

Premium members do download it direct from our server rather than the mirror site, but this is less than 1% of our users.

Ah ok, I see. I've been registered on your site for a while and love it.

So, if you would convert my post to a download, that would be a great thing.

Thank you so much. πŸ™‚

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean? Where should I display the attributes? Do you have a screenshot? πŸ˜…

 

No, sorry. The skin is only offered here or directly on the homepage of FM.Zweierkette and both links should work. πŸ™‚

Can you help provide an additional mediafire address? thank you

I'm talking about the player attribute color box, like flut skin  οΌŒas shown in the picture

I'm sorry, but I have to deny both, even though this will probably annoy you very much. πŸ™

 

The download is exclusive to FM.Zweierkette at the moment and here at Sortitoutsi for Premium Members. This is a firm decision I made together with FM.Zweierkette. I'm sorry if you can't download the skin because of that.

 

Can't you use a VPN connection or something, I don't know why your network is so limited?

 

The appearance of the attributes will remain the same for our skin, because for us it fits better visually than the coloured boxes.

 

We are happy to accept feedback and wishes, but we won't be able to implement all of them if they don't fit the skin. Sorry. πŸ˜…πŸ€“

Hello. What is the most efficient resolution?

 

The skin was created with a resolution of 1920x1080 and the icon sidebar. This should be the minimum setting for an error-free display. Higher resolutions should not be a problem. βœŒπŸ»πŸ€“

You have to download a stadium pack and insert it into your graphics folder, like the player pictures or club crests. Then they will be displayed in the game after you have deleted the cache and reloaded the skin. πŸ€“

This is a really excellent skin, the only (very minor) thing that is stopping me using it is the lack of status icons on the player profile screen (as shown here in the blue box on the Zealand skin). is that something that would be possible to add?

Thank you for your positive feedback. I'll take a look at it and if I can integrate it without problems, it will be included in the next update. πŸ€“

 

By the way, our skin is now also available on Steam. ✌🏻😊

Amazing skin!

For me the best skin.
Just some problems with 150% zoom.

 

Side margins too wide

 

Font too large


 

 

 

My personal taste: Result bars would be better smaller
 

 

Some players disappear
 

 

Thanks just for your attention.

Thank you for your feedback and for liking my skin. That makes me happy.

 

Regarding your problems, I have to say that the skin is optimally designed for a resolution of 1920x1080 in full screen at 100% zoom and icon bar.

 

Lower or higher resolutions or zooms can unfortunately still distort the skin very strongly, whereas higher resolutions have fewer problems.

 

I am a beginner in this area and will try to ensure that various resolutions and zooms are supported by the skin in the future.

There will be a few more updates for FM22, then I will concentrate on FM23.

 

Due to private circumstances, I had little or no time to work on my skin, my logo pack or generally things that had to do with FM22. But now these circumstances are 98% finished and I can concentrate more on the skin and my logo pack.

 

Thank you all for the interest in my work and the (positive) feedback. πŸ™‚
