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 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.

Hi all

 

Sorry for my absence but I really haven't had time to look at your questions.

Thank you all of you who still help in answer the questions. 🙂

 

As we know, the new FM is almost available. Thus, I will consider that my work regarding this FM23 skin is done. Thus, please don't expect that I will answer to other new questions and requests. I can't promise that. Sorry.

 

Cheers and thank you all of you for your kindness and great support!!

 

Here are some answers I could see that was no answered yet:

 

alexgr4

For the first question go to match team stats ibh bottom2.xml and/or match team stats ibh bottom3.xml and change

 

  <flags id="default_view" value="gnIn" />

 

For 

 

  <flags id="default_view" value="msc1" />

 

Regarding the circle with percentages, as you can see is there in my game….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

riVAR26_6_11

You should have the Ingame Editor for that box work well. If you don’t have it, the information will be cut since it use several hidden attributes. Thus, if you don’t intend to buy the ingame editor, please choose other box in the drop down arrow.

 

 Immolate

The skin have that column only in the “Selection Info” view. If you don’t see it, clear the cache, exit the game, keep this skin only in the skins folder of the game and reload it.

 

If you want to include it in other views, you should include the following code in that views in team squad tactics panel.xml

 

<record id="PRCF" width="70" auto_hide_priority="9"  />

Bom dia Sr. Flut

 

Muito obrigado pelo seu pacote incrível.

 

Peço sua ajuda. Como posso alterar a cor das caixas (Propriedades do jogador) e (Posições)? Por exemplo, se eu quiser fazer a cor azul em vez da cor verde.

 

Por favor, desculpe meu português, o Google Tradutor cometeu todos os erros.  🙂)

 

Atenciosamente, KokoLakiss da Turquia

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Good morning Mr. Flut

Thank you so much for your amazing package.

 

I need for your helps. 

 

How can I change the color of the (Player Properties) and (Positions) boxes? For example, if I want to make the color blue instead of the color green.

 

Please excuse my Portuguese, Google Translate made all the mistakes. 🙂)

 

Kind regards, KokoLakiss from Türkiye

Edit the skin config to 24.0.0 so the game finds it

If you want Bielsa to read this you either reply to his comment or “tag” him. you put a @ in front of his user name and when writing his username the spaces has to be  : Bielsa_is_a_Legend @Bielsa is a Legend

Don’t worry, I’m happy to help with my limited knowledge

 

im nowhere near as savvy as some here, but I use trial and error, and this worked last year, so I did same for 2024 and it works until @flut  has the time to update, which hopefully he will

 

when the raw game is released, it really brings home all the great work the modders do for us

Yes done it for a few years but usually like to wait for full Flut edition, but you are right at least its better than the bland default skins

Not only is the flutskin more or less the same as in FM23 but also glad to report that kits, logos and balls all work well in FM24. Not installed the big files (faces and backgrounds) yet because I was impatient to play ! Hopefully they'll be fine. Loving FM24 so far, as it's not just the re-hash of FM23 that many cynics suggested it would be. FM25 will be awesome with the new match engine.

Mostly it works very smoothly. 

 

However, some Buttoncolour changed. Particularly within interactive Inbox Messages.

 

It's now yellow with white coloued text - almost unreadable 🙂 In the past this used to be a a darker box (some sort of blue) with white text and was perfect.

For better visualisation, I added two screenshot of the buttons in FM24 vs FM23

 

So I think we will for sure need some adjustemnt and tweak here and there but for the beginning it's just so much better than the boring original skin…
