Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN Version 6.0 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”) and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin. I also thank you for the contributes made by NOLEAFWILEN and RICHBELL. 

This FLUTSKIN for FM23 is almost equal to the last version of Flutskin for FM22. Therefore, you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present them here. I suggest you to see with your eyes all the changes!!

This version includes just small changes and mainly the reported bugs fixed.

-Calendar tweaked

-Reported bugs fixed

 

“Main Changes” in Version 5.0

  • “New” Club overview panel

        - now includes 3 different tabs including much more informations: club details, club history and key information (this tab full of club information). In the             first tab the “followers in social networks” was included in the top middle panel.

Some of those tabs include new ring graphs of attribute analysis profile (physical, mental, technical, goalkeeping,  defensive and offensive) which were created based on the great work of GROOT in his Electric Panther Skin. Thank you my friend!!; The other tabs include persoal details, biography and player stats full of data.

        - New tabs included in the middle boxes of the panel; stats box tweaked (with more data)

  • Individual training panel

       - New 5 tabs included

  • New Bookmarks button included (now you can easily bookmark your favourite panels and have quickly acess to all of them)
  • Lots of tweaks in player/staff list displayed in inbox panel (with much more information)
  • Other tweaks here and there
  • A few new alts (now you have a total of 24 alts for customize your Flutskin. However, please note that some of them could not entirely correspond to the current version of the skin)
  • Finally, I would like to thank you Robin Heart who challenge me to do new things in the skin and gave me a new background picture for including in the background selector. Thank you, my friend!

  • Some other tweaks here and there
  • Reported bugs fixed
  • New Alts added:
    • 1. grey titlebar and sidebar
    • 2. player attributes not displayed (since I didn’t test all the panels, if you find a panel including player attributes yet, please let me know)
    • 3. club details in club overview panel as it was in the last version of the skin

 

“Main Changes” in Version 2.0

  • Social news (size of the panels increased)
  • New alt for match titlebar/scoreboard, including clock, teams (only the team logos) and score
  • Reported bugs fixed
  • Note 1: I also decided to keep the panels of the Uefa Cups, Bundesliga and EFL as default. However, I included a new alt for those who prefer using the match titlebar of the FlutSkin, in all competitions.

 

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 [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.

 

[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 - 6.0 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 Flut

 

I think that I may have discovered a bug in that in my game the “Make Board Request” button is greyed out. When I switch back to the standard skin the button is available.

Thanks for your valuable knowledge and time flut.

 

I have had my first success in editing an xml file!

 

So I have managed to change the kit name, but the number seems the same? Is there a seperate xml for the number?

 

Also for the autograph, I followed your instructions to the letter. I created a new .fontxml file which I called playername

 

It seems to have no effect on changing the font though? Do I have to call it something different? How does the game know what font is for the payers name in the profile area?

 

Thanks again in advance mate.

 

 

The number is not a font but a picture. You can find the numbers folders in graphics/pictures/kits/2d/numbers

 

For the autograph,  you should go to player overview panel.xml and change all pieces of code with font="fonts/namex", to font="fonts/playername"

But what is the version you are using? Currently that panel is different. Look at my screenshot (in that version you are using, yes, that panel had that bug).

The facepack I used is the cutout one. After the FM 23.2 patch was released earlier today, a lot of players faces disapeared no matter using Flut skin or default skin. I wonder if it was the issue on my end or not. Thanks!

yes sure please see attached. Actually, the player faces became like this after a game crash, then I found the new patch just released. I don't know if its related to the update, but it seems the cutout faces I downloaded cannot be mapped into the game. +

I don't think its a skin issue i use cut outs off here as you can see from the screen shot mine are working id maybe suggest a fresh install of the faces or check the config xml

Hi Flut

 

I'm using version 1.0 but I've worked out what the problem is. I've been using the alternatives for special backgrounds and if I don't use these then I see the panel as you show it. I reloaded the alternative special backgrounds but did not copy the club>>board room panel.xml file across and everything is now fine.

yes I tried to clear the cache and reload the skin, but the issue remains. Thank you for your help. What I need is just to confirm its not a skin issue. I'll re-install the face pack to see if that would solve the problem.

Hi,

 

I'm not sure why but on the scouting shortlist, under positions there's no positions to click on where the football pitch is?? There was before so I'm unsure what's happened. I'm using the Flutskin 1. I've tried to reload and delete the cache etc but there still not appearing.

 

Many thanks.

Goodnight @flut.

I wanted to ask for your permission if i could use the news tab feature from your skin and merge/implement it on my custom skin, that is for personal use only.
Awaiting for a reply, thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance, and a big hug from Portugal.

Best regards Rui.

Hi all

 

The skin is updated to version 2.0.

It includes just a few small tweaks and (I believe) all the bugs reported fixed.

Hi pal,

 

Just downloaded it and copied across the “alt sidebar match club colour - FM23” but it didn't alter the side bar (to the left). I tried it by looking at Arsenal and Valletta and the black side panel on the left remains ….. bit puzzled ….. Any help appreciated.

 

Cheers

Hi Flut! First of all, thank you for your wonderful work. I have a problem in the match screen. If I enter the second coach's tips panel it appears empty without any writing, is there any way I can solve this? Thanks!

I got rid of the alt v.1 folder from the skin directory and used the one from v.2.

 

Never had this issue before with your previous versions. Strange one

I've re-added the v.1 file and copied the relevant matching colour scheme files across and got it working. Problem solved.

Hi jeff

If you want to use the default, use this. Place it in the game folder of the skin.
