What's the deal with this MPGD skin?

This is a preview build with my plans for FM24.  As I've developed the skin over the year, there's a lot of things I've learnt and wanted to address that need bigger, structural back-end changes.  This is my first step towards it, but it is unlikely to be completed before the next game drops (you know, having a life and all that).  It is only available in dark mode and graphical.

As a beta there may be things that eventually get cut out and never make the final cut.

Along with boring stuff like streamlining the design system, changing font, and standardising margin sizes; there are some cool little features in there, too.  Situational information is accessible via buttons.  For example, on the player profile:

image.thumb.png.4dc918f3147c7fefdc11169618eef93d.png

1. Role ability and games played in position can be accessed by clicking on the positions indicator.

2. Buttons added to switch between position groups for the Pizza Chart.

3.  A customisable DNA panel - click on the icon in the centre to reveal the selectors.  Set once, and it will save for future sessions.

4.  Click on the report icons to get more detailed feedback from your staff.

5.  Switch between season and career stats by clicking on the headings.

Essentially, if you see an icon, click it - it might reveal something!!!

 

Patch Notes

v3.03

  • New Skin, MPGD (Musterman Preview Graphical Dark) Added
  • Updated pizza chart graphics, which should fix crash issues
  • New competition overview page
  • Added new links to News page
  • Various white text fixes for Light mode
  • Alternative translation files added for FR, POR & CZ (huge credit to @vonTrips @FERIA and @Herr Jones)

 

Bugs/Future Requests
If you notice any bugs/issues, please do get in touch, and I will see if they can be resolved.  One of the biggest challenges with light skins is identifying all instances of white text and finding a way to either change it, or put an appropriate background behind it.  I expect there will be some instances that I've missed, so please let me know!

Similarly, if you have any requests for future features, please let me know, although for full transparency I have no intention of adding any information pertaining to hidden information (CA/PA etc...)

I will add any known issues and requests below, and update with status where possible:

  • I've added custom text to some pages which cannot be translated - this has only been done in areas where there isn't already an appropriate, existing string within the game files (no fix)

 

Usage Rights

This skin is completely free for personal use, but may not be sold or placed behind a paywall.  If you plan on using the skin publicly, or repurposing a unique element for own skin, please provide credit and a link to this post.  If, for whatever reason, you are so enamoured with this skin you want to send me a coffee, feel free to donate via PayPal.  I would like to stress there is no obligation whatsoever!

@symbyoz - I'm afraid there are no plans for a dark skin (or a club colours version, either).  Unfortunately it's not as simple as just swapping some colours around.

Unfortunately not without great difficulty. There are quite a few pages where the background colour had to be defined and so these would hide any background image you would set.

In your photo with Alphonso Davis the stats are displayed in different colours, howd you do that? all the colours are the same when i download, also changing attribute colours in preferences seems to have no impact?

An unintended consequence of "Unknown attributes now show as a different colour to poor attributes". I'll review if this needs to be reverted back.

For now, at least, there are a couple of options:

- Use Notepad+ and change use_attribute_colour_as_bg="true" to use_attribute_colour_as_bg="false" using the Find in Files function (select the whole skin folder, and replace all)
- Define the colours you want in settings/Mustermann Graphical settings.xml, these colours are defined from line 664 starting at "low attribute".

 

That said, they shouldn't all be the same colours - can you share a screenshot?

 

Unless you are referring to the colour scheme options.  That's explained in the opening post:

 

There are now alternative colour themes available.  You will need to copy the settings file for the colour theme you want from Alternative settings file into [skin name]/settings and rename the file to replace the current one.  For example, if using Mustermann Numerical, you will rename the file Mustermann Numerical settings

fixed the attributes. an idea for the future and one ide like, could you combine the numberical and graphical so for example youve got the colour (graphical) behind the number. - on the whole though i am a fan of this skin 

as you can see all the goals/key passes and key tackles are all the same colour as in your example 1 is green, 1 is blue and one is red.

For those colours, you will need to change it in the settings file.  These are the base game values that you can copy and paste over those in the current file:

 

<!-- player stats donut chart colour -->
<colour name="shots on target colour"      value="rgb(98,164,92)"/>
<colour name="shots goal colour"       value="rgb(0,255,120)"/>
<colour name="shots non goal colour"      value="rgba(185,215,197,0.3)" />
<colour name="passes succeeded colour"      value="rgb(104,138,160)"/>
<colour name="key passes colour"       value="rgb(54,219,219)"/>
<colour name="normal passes colour"      value="rgba(204,223,236,0.3)" />
<colour name="tackles won colour"       value="rgb(181,105,103)"/>
<colour name="key tackles colour"       value="rgb(255,65,65)"/>
<colour name="normal tackles colour"      value="rgba(229,174,174,0.3)" />
<colour name="stats filler colour"       value="rgb(187,191,199)"/>

 

Attribute boxes behind numbers is a little more tricky.  One of the considerations in the design was accessibility, and gradients have been used to be more colour-blind friendly (e.g. the attributes become lighter, the worse they are - so if you are red/green colour blind there is a better distinction than a traffic light system would allow).  The problem with this is that you can't change the text for the attributes based on their value.  Dark text will be difficult to read for excellent attributes, whilst light text will be difficult to read for poor attributes.  Something in between will be difficult to read for everything!

You can (relatively easily do this yourself):

 

  • Extract the file
  • Copy the Match folder over to the one in the skin
  • Reload the skin

Genuinely fantastic, innovative skin and perfect for a semi-attributeless, data-led save. And I would be happy to pay money for a dark-mode version

Hi mate, this is great, thanks for your work!

 

A quick question, is there a way of altering the in between match highlights screen so that it shows various panels, rather than just the widget?

 

Thanks in advance!

Sure - take a skin with a match setup you like, and copy across the associated files.  Start with the in between highlights panel, check to see which files, classes, graphics and fonts it references (and those additional files reference) and copy them all over.

You can edit panels/club/club overview panel.xml for the club info.  The whole panel has been annotated so you can see what pieces of code control which area, and each area has a height defined.  Be warned, though, the heights are largely dictated by the content inside them.

 

For the player profile, you want panels/player/player overview panel.xml.  There is a section at the bottom titled “Overlays”, you can edit the “Player Picture” section to adjust sizes of that area.

I try but can't change very well.

Its a shame, you always have the skin i love to play, but the club info is really a big off for me.

也懒得看,我明白了(开玩笑)。

 

您可以(相对容易地自己执行此操作):

 

  • 解压缩文件
  • 将“匹配”文件夹复制到皮肤中的文件夹
  • 重新加载皮肤

附件

匹配.rar (6.58 KiB)

 

我按照你的方法,但没有用,不知道我是否可以将即时结果直接放在下一个版本中?

Yes - the new files (taken from the Instant Result skin) are what is needed for the Instant Result button.
