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 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 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.

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… 

Yes, some small errors. As you say button colours and also noted date missing from post match page, otherwise no other differences found.

HI all


Thank you again for your support and for your preference.

I took a look on the skin in FM24 and its true that almost all things work well.

Thus, I will release the beta version  as soon as I can.. 

Although I already fixed the colour of that yellow buttons and did a few adjustments I noticed, I believe that there are some other bugs. Therefore, I really appreciate if you report that bugs.


Regarding the questions and requests for FM23, sorry but I have no time to answer (I'm veri busy on these days and I have to be more focused on the FM24 Skin)


Thank you very much 

i didn't notice how much i love your skin  until i had to play with the original FM 24 skin yesterday

Is there an option to have Premier League scoreboard during the game? Scoreboards are great and it would look so good to have this one too 🙂 Or if you could upload some text or video tutorial how to create the scoreboard and how to put it in the game I mean in what file one can write code for when that scoreboard to be displayed.


Thanks for the great work, best skin! 🙂

Ok, play with the settings in the attached text, until you get the spacing required.


When I tried to do this I couldn't find those lines of code in Player overview panel.xml.  😢


I'm trying to move the age I think so this aligns a bit better tho


I figured it out 😎
