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.

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 - 8.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.

What is your skin resolution and what are the zoom and windows display settings are you using?

The same applies to deleting a scouting assignment. When I tell a scout to scout somewhere and then cancel the assignment the “Recruitent Focus Area” won't update without turning FLUT skin off and back on!

 

The game also doesn't seem to provide a way to delete “scout next opposition” or “ Squad Player (analyse own team)”. No idea, how to delete it, perhaps something that should be reported to SI..

Did you tried with default skin, following the same steps in order to know if with default skin everything is okay?

This usually happens to me when I save the picture (background picture) in the wrong place. See below, is your folder in the right place?

It actually seems to work with FLUT skin after all! It doesn't work immediately but after changing to a few different screens it does actually update! So normal scouting assignments can be canceled with flut skin, it just doesn't happen immediately, which is fine.

Wow, I think scouting in FM23 is very buggy in general. I don't think it is FLUT skins's fault..

The code for the bicture bahind the player picture is the same for stadium (tehre are different configs for stadiums) and for player photo background. If you have the player pictures to be read before the stadiums (the game read the folders alphabetically) the player photo will be shown, instead of the stadium picture.

Great to hear that (the fact that it is not related to the skin). Thanks!

Hi all

 

I already uploaded the Beta version, now with the correct file for sidebar.

I also included a tweak in the home manager panel (more boxes/information in the manager performance box). 😉

 

cheers

You are using the alt for match titlebar, which is okay. However, you only placed the files in match folder of the skin. For working in all leagues/competitions, you should place the alt files also in all the folders you find in match/comps, since in those folders they are also the match score area panel.xml and match title bar.xml

No worries, this is an image of the default skin, you see where it says peak for the description instead of number percentages.

Thanks for the skin - as always brilliant. But I have a question - how to set default scoreboard in UEFA champions league/Europe league/conference league and super cup. Because those cups are fully licensed I don’t need modded scoreboard 🙂 thanks in advance .

Many thanks maestro flut ! You can guarantee a few beers from me when the full game is released, regardless of how much or how little the full game skin is enhanced, as it's all but perfect as it is right now. You truly care about your craft and with the “alts” folder, allow some customisation. Equally important, you don't just say “take it or leave it”, as many skinners do, or put a compulsory charge on enhanced skins. Instead, you respond politely to us should we have a query or a suggestion. Skinners come and go but 99.9% of them are not in the same league.

On my Graphics folder i have one called backgrounds, and have the sortitoutsi backgrounds folder items inside copied into background folder.

Also i have the stadiums folders in my pictures folder and all work fine. ( maybe me being fussy 😀 )

 

On a personal note i have found that fm23 locations some have changed as i had Sortitoutsi logos in my pictures folder in fm22 but they only worked when i moved them into logos folder for fm23.
