Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN Version 8.0 for FM23!!

First of all 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”) to PMPOU for his great contribution with many tickets to customize the skin, to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin. I also thank you for the contributes made by NOLEAFWILEN and RICHBELL. 

In FlutSkin you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present all of them here. I suggest you to go through the panels in order to see with your eyes all the changes!!

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!!

 

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel) here in sourtitoutsi. FC style kits https://sortitoutsi.net/content/44727/2d-kits-1819-for-flutskin-titlebarplayer-overview-v10 SS Kits style https://sortitoutsi.net/content/57825/ss-kits-as-logo-left-for-flut-skin

 

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 sortitoutsi Backgrounds Megapack includes player, competition and stadium backgrounds, as well as beautiful city images:  https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/style/17/sortitoutsi-backgrounds-megapack

 

As always FlutSkin is completely free 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 donate by clicking here:

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 logo@2x. 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.


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 FM23[/b]
Download and extract the .zip file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2023flutskin_dark" folder here: 
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2023\skins

[*] Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
[*] Start FM23 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
[*] You should see FM 2023 Flut Skin dark - 8.0 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.

Hi @flut 

 

thank you for the great skin. My favorite i love it since you made it.

A question, if there is no captain etc the skin gives the picture from a manager.

I have your graphics replaced by the DF11 style default faces.

Hi,does anyone know how to insert 2 pictures of the stadium? The exterior design and the interior??

I inserted pictures of stadiums and cities and it looks like this: 001

 

And how can I get two pictures like this? I will download the pictures of those stadiums, but where are they inserted and do they have the same id numbers? 002

Hi and thanks!! 🙂

Regarding that bug, in fact you are right. I just finished to fix it. Since I did it in various xml I just send you, for now (the other will be included in a next release of the skin), the file for that panel you put in your screenshot. Place it in the panels folder of the skin and overwrite the original.

Hi

I explain how you should edit the match score area panel.xml in the read me file. However, here is the explanation:

 

Tha panel is prepared for 1920x1080. Thus, if your screen resolution is lower or higher than 1920, change the value of the panel width (the first line of code of the xml) as following:

- your screen resolution value minus 200 (for example, for screen 1366, if you play 100% ZOOM you should use panel width="1166"

Since I don't know what is your screen resolution and what is the ZOOM you use, my suggestion is to change that value using trial and error strategy (looking at your screenshot, you have to increase the current value - now the value is 1720)

This is the first time I've used one of your skins, and it's really great. Top work!

 

I do have a couple of minor issues though. When I select attributes without the coloured boxes on the player profile, it no longer highlights the recommended attributes by role. Is there any way to fix this?

The other issue is really minor, but the money value of ‘last transfer’ isn't quite aligned with the text, so is cut off. 

 

You can see both issues below:

 

Finally I have a request, is it possible to get rid of the ‘pie’ role suitability indicators on the tactics screen, and have it revert to the FM23 default?

Thanks!

Thanks I've sorted it, don't remember having to do this in the past so didn't think that was the issue. Apologies

Hi, and thanks.

Regarding your questions:

 

A. Indeed I could not make both of attributes types work well regarding the highlights. But you can change that (making the attributes without boxes works with the highlights instead of the attributes with background boxes).

For that:

  1. Open the club overview panel.xml and change

<widget class="player_attributes_panel" file="player/player attributes panel3abox" id="patt" late_loading="true">

<translation id="title" type="use" value="Attributes with Background Boxes" />

                           For

<widget class="player_attributes_panel" file=" player attributes panel3" id="patt" late_loading="true">

<translation id="title" translation_id="229822" type="use" value="Attributes" />           

 

  1. Open player overview big selector panel1.xml and change

<widget class="player_attributes_panel" id="paxe" late_loading="true" file="player attributes panel3">

          <translation id="title" translation_id="229822" type="use" value="Attributes" />    

       </widget>

 

For

<widget class="player_attributes_panel" id="paxe" late_loading="true" file=" player/player attributes panel3abox">

           <translation id="title" type="use" value="Attributes with Background Boxes" />

       </widget>

 

 

B. The code for that is in player additional attributes panel.xml and the code line is

<record id="hsLF" alignment="centre,centre,can_scale" /><!--last proposal-->

 

Maybe you can try to change the alignment="centre,centre,can_scale” by alignment="centre,top,can_scale” (I’m not sure because I didn’t try that since in my game is perfectly aligned)

 

C. You should remove the folder properties from the skin folder, clear the cache, exit the game and reload it (however, you should know that all the sharpness pie in the skin will not be showed anymore). But if you want change that only in the tactics squad, open team squad tactics panel.xml, remove the following code

 

<record id="PRCF" width="70" auto_hide_priority="9"  />
      <!-- fitness/sharpnessFM20 -->

 

and, insert the following code:

 

<!-- player condition -->
     <record id="PcOI" auto_hide_priority="3" navigation_focus_target="false" />
     <!-- player sharpness -->
     <record id="PftI" auto_hide_priority="3" navigation_focus_target="false" />

Thanks for your help. I'm a total novice at this, so you'll have to bear with me.

A: It seems to have worked:

 

I must have done something wrong though, because the attributes with boxes vanished! I'm not too worried though, as I'll be using the ones without boxes 🙂
 




B: Nothing seems to have changed, but it's ok. Only a very minor thing.

 

C: I deleted the properties folder, cleared cache, restarted and reloaded the skin, but the role suitability pies are still there:

 

Any other idea on this one?

I supposed you want to remove the graphic regarding the fitness/sharpness and not that. Sorry. So, please include again the properties folder (since it is not responsible for that pie graphics you want to delete).

For that you should remove the folder named “circular” which is in graphics\icons\custom\role rating

After that you should reload the game.
