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:
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 - 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! Amazing work!!

 

Do you know how to turn the background opacity in the player panel a little down. I just liked a little more as it was before like in the first attached picture. The second one is as it is now.

 

Thanks!!

Hi. For the second one I don't know how to do it since I never edit that.

Regarding the stadium, go to club overview stadium91.xml and change the following code

 

<container >
    <layout class="arrange_horizontal_attachment" layout="-5,1,-4,1,-4,1,-5" offset="0" />

 

for

 

<container >
    <layout class="arrange_horizontal_attachment" layout="-5,1,-4,1,-5,1,-5" offset="0" /> 

 

Hello Flut,

I found the solution on the net and with luck opening the good file this morning. 

 

In the file  "fm2021flutskin_dark settings.xml", these are the 2 lines that need to be changed :

<colour name="calendar fixture" red="142" green="90" blue="192" alpha="100"/>

<colour name="calendar reserve fixture" red="240" green="240" blue="0" alpha="10"/>

 

Have a nice day and thank you again for your work and your skin which is beautiful !

My friend, this skin is excellent. I would like to know if there is a way to change it to instead of appearing in the player's nationality, instead of appearing the emblem of the country's federation, the country's flag appears

 

Hi. Thanks!

Could you please show me a screenshot explaining exactly where you want to see the flag?

Thanks!!

Regarding your question, you can do it in backgrounds.xml changing

 

  <!-- 40% -->
     <container class="plain_box" id="40bg" appearance="boxes/overlay/40/40" >
       <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0"/>
     </container>

 

for

 

  <!-- 40% -->
     <container class="plain_box" id="40bg" appearance="boxes/overlay/40/40" hidn="true" >
       <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0"/>
     </container>

 

and

 

 <!-- 20% -->
     <container class="plain_box" id="20bg" appearance="boxes/overlay/20/20" hidn="true" >
       <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0"/>
     </container>

 

for

 

 <!-- 20% -->
     <container class="plain_box" id="20bg" appearance="boxes/overlay/20/20" >
       <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0"/>
     </container>

 

But don't forget that the opacity will be reduced in all panels of the skin.

Hi Flut!!! Thanks for taking the time. I did as you instructed but it didn't work, opacity is the same. Do you have any idea what i can be doing wrong?.

 

Ghanks!!

Check your game preferences. I believe you select “attributes” in the player screen definitions…

The skin includes that. I believe there is some kind of conflict in your game. Clear the cache, keep this skin (and only this version) in the skins folder of the game, exit the game and reload it.

Thanks!

Could you please show me a screenshot? However, I believe it depends on your graphics folders. For example, as I prefer the logos, I have a folder of “flags” which, instead of country flags I use the country logos….I believe you should try to know what is the folder which have the logos and replace the logos with flags…..But, note that is only what I supposed….

Yes. I said that you have chosen “attributes” when you should choose “profile” in order to have the player overview panel as default and not the player attributes panel as default.

Hi @flut .

 

First of all, I love your skins and they are the only ones I've been using in the last couple iterations of Football Manager.

 

Now I've been having these weird flickers / black flashes, goal nets flashing etc. in match presentation. Especially during breaks (when the match is processing) and sometimes when showing goal highlights. Usually flashing is more constant in 2d view. (I dont use that, but been testing.) Flashing is random I think: some matches you dont notice it at all and some matches are pretty bad.

I think it started about a time of late january fm update and at first I thought it was the game itself causing the flashes. There were some posts in forums etc. hinting that way. Now after main winter update the problem still persists.

 

Now I tried base skin (removed flutskin from skins-folder) and couple of other skins and still not 100% sure, but no flashing. Been testing only few matches, but still.

 

So is it possible that flutskin (or something in skin) in my setup is the cause, didn't find anything hinting that way from other users in this thread..

Hi and thanks 🙂

Regarding your problem, in my game that bug is not arising. Also there is no other reports regarding that weird bug.  However, maybe is related to some kind of conflict (since I use many xmls that I edited for previouses FM, maybe some of them causes that…). I really don't know what is happening but my suggestion is to do a few tests for try to find what file causes that. Try, for example, to remove the folder panels and reload the game. If the flashes still there, the problem maybe is related to some file in the folders that still are in the skin folder. If the problem is solved, than place again the panels folder in the skin and remove, for example, just the matches folder and test again. And proceed in that way to find in what folder is the “bad” file. When you find the folder where the file is, start to remove files from that folder and try again….etc. I believe that proceeding in that way you be able to isolate and find the file(s) responsible for that bug…

Hi @flut,

How can I change the back side kit ? because the kit color is the same with the number and player name. As I remember in FM22 there was stripe kit with solid color for the name & number. Thank you

Hi. Yes. In FM22 I used the default kits with a changed pack where I included some kits with the square. However, now I used the default kit pack exactly as it was created. If you have the ingame editor is easy to change for the square kit (look at my screenshot). However I think I noticed that you don't have the ingame editor. Thus, if you still have the FM22 flutskin, you can use that default kits and your problem will be solved (you just have to go to graphics/pictures/kits and replace the folder 2d for that one I used in the FM22.

Too bad I already delete all the FM22 files except the 3d kits. 

Will it works if I copy the kit from “square” folder to “same as front” folder ?

 

EDIT : I downloaded the FM22 v.6 skin, so I just copy all the “2d” folder and replace the existing folder in FM32 Flut skin v.7 ?

Love the theme but what I am noticing is the when I goto through the tabs there is a delay and takes ages to load up the pages, and my system can handle this game not that this is the issue here most likely am I doing something wrong???

 

I have cached skin for faster response times and it doesn't make a difference.

Hi.

Thanks. Regarding the delay, in fact there is a delay in Home panel (tab 2 and 5), and tab 5 of Club overview panel (when we go to that tabs the first time). I don't know why (so, I can't fix it). However in my game is just a small delay and nothing that disturbs me.

So the delay is only temp? or is it something like you said something you have to fix?

The delay occurs everytime you load the game. As I said, I don't know how to fix it.
