Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN Version 6.0 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”) and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin. I also thank you for the contributes made by NOLEAFWILEN and RICHBELL. 

This FLUTSKIN for FM23 is almost equal to the last version of Flutskin for FM22. 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!!

This version includes just small changes and mainly the reported bugs fixed.

“Main Changes” in Version 5.0

  • “New” Club overview panel

  • Other tweaks here and there
  • A few new alts (now you have a total of 24 alts for customize your Flutskin. However, please note that some of them could not entirely correspond to the current version of the skin)
  • Finally, I would like to thank you Robin Heart who challenge me to do new things in the skin and gave me a new background picture for including in the background selector. Thank you, my friend!

  • Some other tweaks here and there
  • Reported bugs fixed
  • New Alts added:
    • 1. grey titlebar and sidebar
    • 2. player attributes not displayed (since I didn’t test all the panels, if you find a panel including player attributes yet, please let me know)
    • 3. club details in club overview panel as it was in the last version of the skin

 

“Main Changes” in Version 2.0

  • New alt for match titlebar/scoreboard, including clock, teams (only the team logos) and score
  • Reported bugs fixed
  • Note 1: I also decided to keep the panels of the Uefa Cups, Bundesliga and EFL as default. However, I included a new alt for those who prefer using the match titlebar of the FlutSkin, in all competitions.

 

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:
https://www.paypal.com/donate/?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=E9P4RXKNQBQBS
 

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.


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 - 6.0 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 the update.

 

I see the condition/match sharpness percentages have been removed (or I can't find them). What is the easiest way to get this back?

PauloAreias: you selected analysis clicking on analysis button. For return to the “normal” view click again on that button.

 

6scholl6, DazS8 and javillera: thanks!!!!

 

aar0n: thanks! Regarding your question, I didn’t change that. Everything is there. If is not displayed in your game, please clear the cache, keep only this skin (and this skin version) in the skins folder of the game, exit the game and reload it.

For whatever reason having OPZ skin in the folder was causing this. Weird one. All is good now.

Hi Flut, 

 

Is it possible for this skin to also work on FM22? I've tried placing this into my FM22 folder but it seems the game does not recognise it. Is there a config file or anything I can change to allow it to work on older versions?

I have downloaded V6 but wanted to revert back to the player overview profile V5. For some reason now every time i go to a player the info isn't loading and i have to change the tab and go back to the player overview page for it to populate. I already cleared the cache etc and I only have this skin and V6 only in the folder, no luck!

pottersmad, hochsen and bartdude: thanks for keeping support my work and for your kind words!!!!

 

pwalker: you can replace the ticket in graphics/boxes/custom/ticket

 

Stefanovski: that is weird…and I don’t know how to explain that (did you try to clear the cache, keep only this skin – and skin version - in the skins folder of the game and reload it?). However, and answering your question, please download the skin again, since I included an alt for return to player overview panel from V5.

Yes that is exactly what I have done. I have used V6 (downloaded today), extracted as normal and removed V5 folder from the game folder first. I then copied over the V5 player overview files from the Alt folder.  I also cleared cache and reloaded everything.

 

I have now removed V6 skin and put V5 back in the game folder to try and it's working perfectly fine. Anything else that could be causing the issue? 

 

Thanks, and PS - love the skin so much, it feels like a different game compared to playing with the very basic default skin!

Hi Bielsa

 

You just have to replace the tickets you want to replace by yours. The folder is graphics/boxes/custom/ticket. And if you want to change the name in the game (changing, for example, Liga Bwin for Premier League) go to match team news.xml (located in the match folder of the skin) and find for

 

<translation id="title" type="use" value="Liga Bwin" /> 

 

change for

 

<translation id="title" type="use" value="Premier League" />

Thank you for reporting that bug that I didn’t notice. In meantime I tried to fixed it correctly but, for using the full club names, I couldn’t make it. However, I did na alternative way to use the full names in White but now readable. You can use this file (place it in panels/match/comps/eng/efl). If you prefer return to the default (with the 6 letter club names) you just have to remove this file and reload the game).

Thanks for trying. I tried to redo everything from scratch but unfortunately it does not work for me, strange. I'll just use the full V6 in that case 🙂

 

Is there a way for us to rename these player panels to something other than player panel 1, 2 etc?

Adoro como suas "peles". Sou fan desde há muito tempo. 
EU queria perguntar o seguinte: Já criei um club e tudo corre bem. No entanto, já construi um novo estádio e aparece sempre a imagem de
"Coming Soon". O estádio acaba de ser construido e nunca aparece a imagem do estádio novo. Porquê? 
Podia aparecer um Estádio desenhado por vocês, por exemplo, e assim daria a sensação que era o Estádio que nós construimos. Entendem?

Façam esse favor à Comunidade. Ficaria perfeito e toda a gente iria adorar, acreditem. 
De resto, tudo perfeito. Parabéns
Grande abraço.

Hi and thanks! 🙂

 

Regarding your question. The new generated stadium have a new ID name. Thats why it is not displayed. However, you can easily do it. You just have to define the stadium picture you want, place it in the stadiums pack folder, open the config file and add a new line pointing to the new ID. This is for the stadium be displayed in some panels. In other panels you should do the same but the config use the ID of the club…(please read the pdf I included in the pack in order to know how should you do the configs in for having the stadium in all the places where the stadium should be displayed)

Oi e obrigado! 🙂

 

Quanto à sua pergunta. O novo estádio gerado tem um novo nome de identificação. É por isso que ele não é exibido. No entanto, você pode facilmente fazê-lo. Você só precisa definir a imagem do estádio que deseja, colocá-la na pasta do pacote de estádios, abrir o arquivo de configuração e adicionar uma nova linha apontando para o novo ID. Isso é para o estádio ser exibido em alguns painéis. Em outros painéis você deve fazer o mesmo, mas a configuração usar o ID do clube ... (por favor, leia o pdf que eu incluí no pacote, a fim de saber como você deve fazer as configurações para ter o estádio em todos os lugares onde o estádio deve ser exibido)

 

(peço desculpa ter escrito em inglês, mas essa é a língua que utilizamos. Um abraço!!)

Obrigado pela sua resposta rápida. Vou tentar pedir a um amigo que entenda de informática, para me ajudar a fazer isto. 
No entanto, quando diz que devo ler o PDF que incluiu no pacote .... mas não vejo onde está o "PDF". Por favor se me puder
ajudar uma vez mais agradeço.

Abraço
Filipe
