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:

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.

It's a consequence of the files within the match/comps/eng/eur/ger folders which display differently according to the competition being played. Best that flut answers this one. Personally, I like the variation.

Amen to that. I'm avoiding skins that hide attributes in loyalty to Flut, but I'm hoping it's not too long before I can stop shielding my eyes!

Hi,

 

Really like using your skin, one thing Ive noticed is that the scout reports do not show on the right hand side as the attached images.  On the main FM game when you go to scout report actual text is on the right hand side, but on your skin there is nothing.  Hope this can be fixed  

 

Keep up the great work

Bielsa: I really can’t help you since everything is okay in my game, as I told you. The last thing I can say is that make sure that when you reload the game you don't have, in preferences, the "use of the cache..." box with a tick (must not have a tick)

 

NVHeat: regarding the screenshot you place with the Champions league formation I can’t help you since I didn’t change anything in that panel.

 

Fascinoso: thanks! Regarding your question, I believe that happens because the game is reading the players backgrounds folder before the stadiums folder. Try to do the following experience:

  1. Remove the players backgrounds folder and reload the game (the stadiums should be displayed)
  2. Try to place the players backgrounds folder with a folder name that is be read by the game after the stadiums folder (the game read the folders in alphabetical order)

 

Evil-Muffin: I believe Bartdude is right. I didn’t try but I believe you only place the alt for “no managers” in the english league folder (match/comp/eng/efl). For using no managers in all competitions, you should copy the alt for no managers to match folder, to the 4 folders inside eur folder, to Bundesliga folder and to efl folder. Please let me know if it works.

 

Wujek, Sergio27 and Andyinasia: thanks. I will release the version 1.0 soon. However, please don’t expect great changes since I just made small tweaks and fixed the bugs found (in fact I have no time to dedicate to the skin in these days…). Regarding a Mod, I will add a new Mod for the match titlebar scoreboard using only the team logos, result and clock (nothing more) 

 

Andyinasia: regarding the “no attributes” mod, we have to wait for Rich work, since is he who usually edit that version (I have no time to do it).

 

 tomnan: Thanks. Regarding your question, 6scholl6 is asking you about what is the ZOOM (in the game) you are using, since I believe he can help you.

 

 wazza1971: Thanks. Regarding you problem, if you look at the screenshot of the skin you can see that, in that panel, there is much more information. It works well in my game. Thus, try to clear the cache, exit and reload the game. Keep only this skin in the skins folder.

 

 Mortiis: For remove the current ability in that panel, go to yacs information.xml and remove <integer value="PCAB" /> Regarding the kit number, please read the pdf I included explaining how you can edit it.

Now you can download the version 1.0 of the FlutSkin.

I would like to say that, please, don't have great expectations, because this version contains the reported bugs fixed and just small tweaks. 

Thank you all!!

Tested in the EPL, CL all seems fine so far adding the copy to each sub folder such as CL, EL etc

Flut,

 

Thanks a million for your work. It is amazing and increases the enjoyment of FM year after year.

 

Just wondering I have quickly photo shopped the player profile pic. Is it possible to change the font of the player name (like an autograph, didn't you do this another year?) as well as the font for the shirt can this be edited as well. For the pic I just used 2 x fonts that were freely available online. Also where it says coming soon for the stadium, can this be updated to the correct stadium pic? Thank you so much in advance.
