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:

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!

Yeah i already looked in there but couldnt find the correct file.
See spoiler

 

 

 

Did you use the resource archiver to extract the files from the base game files.  Specifically there is a file in the Football Manager 2023 data folder (in Program Files) called panels.fmf.  This has all (well most) of the files for the base game.  In the standard Mustermann skins I haven't made any changes to this file, so that file won't exist in any of my folders - hence needing to extract it yourself, edit it, and move it into the skin folders.

 

A guide for using Resource Archiver here: https://community.sigames.com/forums/topic/419176-fm18guide-skinning-guide-part-1-how-to-extract-default-files-understanding-file-structure/

 

Whilst the above specifically mentions FM18, it still rings true for more recent editions.

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!

 

Sorry for my late reply, thank you for the info!

There will be a skin for FM24, released towards end of November.  It will be graphical only.  I will be providing updates on Twitter, over the next few weeks.
