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!!

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 SS Kits style


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

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:


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%).


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.

I am having the same problem and in the .pdf that comes with the skin I couldn't find anything that points to the resolution of this problem. 

Can you give me some help FLUT?


The pdf is the following. And yes, there you can find the explanation for adjust the kit number and kit name in the player overview panel.

Hi flut,


just new to your skin and already liking it very much. 

However I've two questions:


Firstly, how do I have to interpret the CA and PA attributes in the player overview? Since it seems those don't match the hidden CA/PA numbers or the star ratings.

I've installed alt 10 for now since I don't understand it, but would like to understand it.


Secondly, is there a way to use your skin with attributes, but without the hidden attributes (including hidden CA/PA numbers). For example in the following places (maybe there are more places, but to give you an idea of what I mean): 

-player overview > profile > player panel 1 > ability (I know I can just change this one, but those are the attributes I'm talking about)

-player overview > profile > player panel 6 > info2 > ability

-player overview > information > info > ability

I have the ingame editor, but I don't want to see those right away, not even by accident, if I want to see those I prefer to have an extra conscious step I have to take to do so. 


Hope you can help

Thanks for the great skin, as always. I'm using the version without attributes, and I found a screen where the attributes are shown. It's the progress screen in the development tab. I've attached a screenshot below. Any way for me to manually fix that without causing you guys too much trouble?

Hi @flut I have two questions, 

can you do something to make club panels visible in japan?

For staff members, is there a possibility to remove the textual information and restore the colored bar to indicate the level of knowledge of a country?

EDIT - 26 May

I've found a solution for the Japanese club panel, I've been using this and at first glance it seems compatible with your skin.


EDIT - 31 May

I add two more questions ..

1 - Is it possible to ensure that the color of the shirts of the players called up for the national team is not changed on the main page of the club and to ensure that it remains unchanged?

2 - Social media info ..

The number of followers, which I imagine is in any case a fantasy value, what does it refer to? What determines this number? The club's reputation perhaps? or what other data?

league unplayable
playable league

then, in the championships that are muted in-game this value is not seen, is it perhaps possible to make sure that it is seen anyway?

First I want to say that I love your skin, it's just beautiful. But, it's obviously only properly looking at 4K, and because I like to play it at [email protected]% zoom I need your help to adjust things that are not working with my settings. I've already sorted the player numbers on various panels, as you can see on the screenshots. So here are screenshots, please use the numbers I did to reference the appropriate XML files:

#7 is missing arrow
#12 is missing arrow
#15 is missing arrow
#18 is the width of team colors BG element
#25 width of team colors BG element
#36 width of team colors BG element
#38 widths of team colors BG element
I forgot to mark here player's face location because it's dropping a couple of pixels over the name box.
Bars dimensions

Also, if it's not a problem you mention in the original post somewhere that you personally use the Metalic country flags and competition trophies because they are shown on the screenshots but are not included. And one suggestion, to have the player card consistent on all panels. It makes no sense to be able to choose if it is not persistent across them all.


I'm also attaching my fix for player kits' numbers and names on player profiles. It's good for Windowed mode at 1080p resolution with 85% zoom. If someone wants to use it, just unpack it in the skin folder and allow overwriting of the files when prompted.


Thanks in advance, and please continue with the great work you are doing on this skin.

Hey @flut ,
first at all, Great Skin! I like it! Big respect!

So I have a Problem…
i tweaked teh skin with your “alt” instructions, now i wanted to have the Attributes without the boxes.
In normal Penel is all fine, but now I find a problem:


In the Penel where you compare players, the first player attributtes, are fine now, but the second player have still the boxes BUT without anything in it.
I want to have all, without boxes, and to see the attributes again!
Do you have a solution for me?

Any idea how I can remove the jersey icon from the player panels. The background image of the player is thereby covered.
