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.

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.

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 https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm23-mod-unlock-japan-club-overview.html 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?

Hello

 

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 1080@85% 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?

Hi all

 

First of all I apologize for my absence. However I am very busy on these days. 

Here are your questions with my comments (for some of the questions I don't know the answers or I can't positively satisfy your requests. Sorry…) in blue.

 

Tim44

Thanks.

 

Regarding your 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. – I believe they correspond. However, the CA/PA is in a 0-20 scale and the other information in 0-200 scale.

 

Secondly, is there a way to use your skin with attributes, but without the hidden attributes (including hidden CA/PA numbers). – yes, is possible, but you should remove and change many pieces of code in various xml. Thus, I can’t explain you how should you do. However, if you want you can just remove a few of that information, removing the files abilityinformation.xml and abilityinformation1.xml yacs information.xml and yacs information3.xml (in the case of these last two files you also will remove other player information…). And don’t forget that you will have an empty space in the place of that information…

 

StatboyVT

Thanks.

 

Regarding your question: use the attached file named player training attirbute changes.xml (place it it player folder of the skin and reload the game)

 

Paumate

Thanks.

For adjust the kit number/name in your first screenshot, please read the pdf file I included in the skin pack. There, I explain how should you proceed.

Regarding the second screenshot, you can adjust the numbers in generic/kit icon53.xml (the steps for adjust the size of the numbers are the same I explain in the pdf tutorial for the other cases)

 

Seren

Thanks!!!

 

Humberto21

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? _ I couldn’t do it. It seems is hardcoded.

 

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? – unfortunately I don’t know why this happen and how to fix it. Sorry. When this happens in my game I reload it if I want to solve the “problem”.

 

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? I don’t know answer your question. Sorry. However, I tend to agree with you. I believe this number maybe is related to the reputation of the club.

 

Hetneo

Thanks.

Regarding your questions….you did so many requests…In fact for trying to answer all of them I need to look at many many xmls and as you can imagine I have no time to do it (overall you almost require a “new” version of the skin, adjusted for 1080, 85% ZOOM 😊). Sorry but I can’t do it. 

 

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. – Yes the metallic logos pack is not included in the skin (you can find it here in sourtitoutsi), except for the “country locator” since each country locator (specially made for the skin) contains the flag and the country logo.

 

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. – Could you please explain a little bit more these questions? 

 

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!!

 

DobarMatheo

Thanks!

Yes you are right. Please try the file attached named player attributes comparison panel.xml (place it in player folder of the skin). And please let me know if it works.

@flut Thanks (anyway) 😉 About the Japanese Club Panel ..

as I wrote I tried a mod that I found on fmscout, but I had to remove it because I no longer saw the away shirt in my club panel, by removing the mod file my club's away shirt reappeared again (which was not Japanese) . In the future (I imagine for the next Fm skin) is it something you can intervene on or does it simply go beyond your knowledge/skills?

I also tried this mod. However, it causes some problems, for example with the data hub panel. So I also removed it 🙂 And yes, this is something beyond my knowledge skills. I'm not an expert. I learned a lot about editing the skin (in terms of the code and many details related to it) because I edit the skin since many years ago. But I started from zero lol. And I learned through trial and error 🙂

Hey @flut - as always, love the skin. Been using it for years, but seems I've come across a problem. When I change to the alternative player overview, I seem to get the following pages on occasion, main stats missing. I click out and go back in and they're there, but rather annoying.

 

I'm not opposed to using the default, but as you can see I would need to manually update the kiticon38 (which is fine) and playeroverview panel so as to move the weight across and shrink the numbers on back of shirt.

 

Any ideas pal? Appreciate 'ya

As for the default view, could you tell me which line in playeroverview panel will let me move the weight across. As you can see, it's currently all bunched up. Cheers.

for move the weight, go to player without bakground.xml and, in line 129 increase the left inset value in the following code

 

   <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="68"/>

@flut No issues to report, just two wishes if you think it's worth doing ..

1 / In my "home panel 4" under "games and results" is it possible to have a reference to the opponent? Maybe the logo or if you can get it in the text too (name of the club)

2 / in the "calendar" screen is it possible to insert a row with the "betting stats" as in previous versions?

the only time I see them is here, the day before the game.

They're just graphic "wishes", if you can do something I'd be happy, otherwise that's fine 🙂

Hi. In the first screenshot, the opponent team and the opponent team logo are there. However are not displayed in your game because your screen resolution. However, I did a new file for you. Put it on the panels folder of the game (overwriting the original one). Please let me know if now is displayed.

 

Regarding the odds, the code is in the xml but the odds are not displayed (in meantime I tried to make it work, using other code for odds but…without success).

It works well in my game. Maybe there is a conflict in your game.

Try to clear the cache, keep only this skin (and this skin version) in the skins folder of the game and reload the game.

I confirm that it works! And what I was hoping for 👍 In fact I thought it was "strange" that you hadn't entered the opposing club, but it depends on the resolution. My resolution is 1920x1080. Thank you very much

Maybe it wasn't fully visible because I use this full bar instead of the "narrow" one.
