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!

You'll need to remove the logo defined in generic/sidebar menu table.xml.

Hello @gimn85 Thanks for your Skin. I will try them. 

 

Here one Screen from the first Things i saw in one of the Menue Parts: 

 

Link: https://ibb.co/pdf7wdX

 

  • the sections in blue: how can i disable the Mustermann Graphic left at the bottom?
  • can you set the Graphic with the Position for the Player bigger?
  • can you set the Player Picture bigger + enable the Kit Graphic (Front/Back) - it is cool to see the Team Kit for immersion.
  • what about the free Space left and Red - can you include some more Stuff

 

i play in 2560*1440 and with 100 % Zoom.

I have annotated the files should you wish to make changes - the files you are looking for specifically will be panels/player/player overview panel.xml and panels/generic/sidebar menu table.xml.

Great skin, is there a way to have the league table set so that the games played etc. is moved closer to the teams-see screenshot. I play on a 32inch monitor and the data is quite a distance away from the team names. I am guessing it is a setting within the panels where to shorten the characters within team names on league tables

This is the way it is set up in the default game - it uses the full width, and the columns appear to be hard set (e.g. everything but the team name is a fixed size, team name then takes up whatever remaining width is available).

 

You can try putting the attached file into the panels/competition folder.  I've set up the table to be 800 pixels wide.  It will also centre the table in the frame (which might look a little odd*), but not push it out of view in other places where the league table is used.  If you go into the file with a text editor, you can change the width accordingly by changing the bit that says default_width="800".

 

*this is what it looks like for me on 2560x1440:

Great skin! What I'm missing is the ability to see which stats are important for each role. That is a deal breaker for me. Would absolutely love to use this skin if that would be possible to have. 

 

PS: Also, I noticed that Concentration is missing from the player attributes.

I'm afraid the deal has been broken, as it is not possible to highlight stats in the chosen layout.  That said, by being grouped by training category, attributes are now arranged with the other attributes that effect specific areas.  If you're looking for a role that is going to be passing a lot (BPD, playmakers, etc…) the Passing group is important.  If you're for someone who sits back and reads the game, look to the Positioning group, and so on.

 

Concentration has been renamed “Focus”.  This is so the word fits into the space for certain languages.

Sure, you can get a general opinion about a player by looking at the stats like that. But for example if you want to see if a player of yours would fit better by playing as an Inside Forward (Attack) or a False Nine, which are similar in many aspects, but a bit different on the mental attributes, that would be harder if you don't know the stats you should be looking at. I see this as a perfectly valid use case to have. 

 

There is a workaround though, on the player compare screen the attributes are shown in the old way with attribute highlighting available. Its very inconvenient having to get there every time you want to check which attributes are best for which role. But it can work as a double filter, I first look at the profile page, if everything seems fine I do a deeper dive into the compare screen. I think this is the only thing this skin is missing. Other than that its an amazing skin! Well done!

 

PS: Yes, I now see that Concentration has been renamed to Focus.

Hello gimm85, thanks for making this skin, really love it. The only problem I have is the attribute color is kinda blend in with the background color. Is there any ways I can change the attributes color to another ?

You change either change them the normal way via Preferences → Skin Colours, or in the settings file (look for the bit that says attributes)

tactics/tactics icon info panel overview - it can be a little fiddly, so if you've not done it before, I suggest finding that file from a skin you like and copying it over.

I'm still new to skin configuring, how can I change the numbering coloring on stats? For now it looks really blended with the background color Never mind, found the solution in the previous post. My only question is below this spoiler

 

 

And also, how can I install this xml? Changing the color themes seems neat!
 

 

Thanks in advance! Love your work!

How do I use the alternative colour schemes?

 

Copy the colour scheme you want into the [skin name]/settings folder.  Delete the existing [skin name] settings.xml file, and rename the one you copied over to [skin name] settings.xml.  Once done, reload the skin!

You'll need to use the resource archiver to extract the panels.fmf.  In here there will be a file called something similar to match/match score area.xml - you'll need to move this into the correpsonding file in the skin, open it in a text editor (such as notepad) and change the text size for team names.  

 

This is likely to be a line that starts:

<widget class="text" size="x"…

 

You'll need to reduce the number of x.  There will be two instances, one for the home team and one for the away team.  You'll then need to reload the skin (with cache cleared).  It might require a bit of trial and error as I suspect that file has multiple instances of text.
