Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN FM24 

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. 
 
If you already know FLUTSKIN from the last seasons you already know what you wil find. It should be noted that if you expect to find a different style of the FLUTSKIN you will be disappointed. If you like it as it is last year you will be satisfied since the FLUTSKIN for FM24 is like FLUTSKIN for FM23 (there are just small things changed after the final version of FLUTSKIN for FM23). 

In FlutSkin you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present all of them here  (you can see a part in the screenshots) . I suggest you to go through the panels in order to see with your eyes all the changes!! For now, the pack doesn't include alt files. However, if you wantm you can use the alts for FM23 since I believe almost of them work properly in this version.

 

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

 

BETA 1 - VERSION - As the other FLUTSKINS this version includes: instant result (in tactics and during the match); citypics availability, home page, player page, club page, match inbetween highlights with many tabs for choosing, etc, etc.

 

THIS VERSION INCLUDES ALSO MANY ALT FILES. FOR USING THEM, PLEASE READ THE FILE read me for alt files.pdf.

All the reported bugs were fixed

A few teaks were done

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT 

  1. the citypics pack, the kits adapted for FLUTSKIN, Logos and "normal" 2D  kits are not included in the pack.
  2. AFTER EXTRACT THE SKIN FOLDER YOU SHOULD LOOK INSIDE THE FOLDER. THE FOLDER WITH THE SKIN NAME IS THAT ONE YOU SHOULD PLACE IN THE SKINS FOLDER
  3. IF YOU ARE PLAYING WITH THE PROPERLY RESOLUTION AND SIDEBAR ICONS ONLY  YOUR PANELS SHOULD BE DISPLAYED EXACTLY AS IN THE SCREENSHOTS. IF NOT, CONSIDER THAT THERE IS A CONFLICT WITH OTHER SKINS: CLEAR THE CACHE, KEEP ONLY THIS SKIN IN THE SKINS FOLDER OF THE GAME AND RELOAD THE GAME.

 

FLUTSKIN FM24 V 1.0

Important recognitions:

  • I would like to give a great thank you to all of you who give me the honour to use FLUTSKIN and keep helping me to improve the skin. For this version I thank you specially to DAZS8, NUNOKOPIO, DARKSIDE63 and QVORDRUP
  • A great thank you also to those who recognize my work with a donation. All the years just a few of users donate, but also all the years there are some of you who always make a donation. I can’t be more recognized my friends. And you know who you are! Thanks a lot!!

 

Now, the changes in this version:

  • New club banner (also new alt with other banners made by NUNOKOPIO are included)
  • New kit numbers (made by NUNOKOPIO)

  • New operation of the TV Logo during a match (now you have different TV Logos, according different competitions; I included an alt folder with many TV Logos for replacing the default TV Logos included by those you want; the alt folder included was made by DAZS8)
  • New tab with hidden attributes panels included in Human manager and staff (for the information could be displayed you have to use In Game Editor – IGE)
  • New option in the player pictures drop down arrow (Player Panel 1) with player hidden attributes (you must have IGE for displaying that information)
  • New button in titlebar for showing editable IDs (done with the help of DARKSIDE63; this addon was adapted from SAS Skin and the credits are for SASMAZ and FMS skin makers)

 

FLUTSKIN FM24 V 2.0

Important recognitions regarding this version:

  • I would like to express my special gratitude to Darkside63, who challenged me for most of the new stuff in the skin and helped me to implement them, and also to DasZ8, for the help regarding Social Feed and for the inclusion of the new Alt with Backgrounds Adds. I also reinforce my gratitude to all the skin makers and specially those I refer in the new changes of this FlutSkin version.

 

Now, the changes in this version:

  • New social feed panel (adapted from the work of DasZ8 and EVO).
  • New club overview panel (new staff pictures and information with rotating animation; new tab regarding “derbies”; layout tweaked).
  • New button in titlebar - “Skin Support”-  with quick links for FLUTSKIN forums, donation, FLUTSKIN Essentials and other useful downloads (adapted from the work of GROOT in his ELECTRIC PANTHER Skin).
  • Tactics Panel (right and left foot included in the pitch panel of tactics panel and match tactics panel) (adapted from the work of SASMAZ in his SAS Skin).
  • New top information bar in the squad view (adapted from the work of BEN in his STATMAN Skin).
  • Stadium Overview Panel (new information regarding the owner of the stadium).
  • New tab in Player Panel 4 (“matches played in the position”).
  • New hidden attributes button included in all drop down arrow options in Player Overview Panel and also in human, staff and player popups panels.
  • New alt folder with backgrounds included (credits: DasZ8).

 

FLUTSKIN FM24 V 3.0

  • “New” Home manager Tab 1
  • New news panel (now in dark style)
  • Deadline day panel tweaked
  • Game processing tweaked
  • Conversation with player included in Player Panel 4 and 5
  • Pink panels removed
  • Some tweaks here and there and, as in the previous versions, I included a pack with many alt files for customize the skin according your taste

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. If the skin doesn’t have the same stuff as in the screenshots and you are playing with my recommended Resolution requirements, please consider to clear the cache, keep only this skin and this skin version in the skins folder of the game and reload the game.
  2. Before asking something, please look at the read me files. There are 7 read me files which I believe answer many questions regarding the skin.
  3. When you report bugs or present requests, please show screenshots showing what you are talking about.

 

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


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.

Also noticed that all the scouting screens now has a gap in between the list of players. this is also the case for the staff search.

 

Second screenshot is the default FM skin for the same view.

When I copy the abilityinformation.xml from FM23 Skin, it looks almost ok:

 

 

However, comparing the old and new version of this file -  I do not really see a difference, which makes it a bit weird 🙂

Just another (small) one…

 

This is the initial mail you get in your inbox regarding your squad when you start a new save (might repeat with similar mails during the season)

 

As you can see, there's a lot of empty space, while the actual content is very small and needs scrolling…

Quick question:

 

When going to tactic window, it always starts with the view including the bench:

 

 

Is it possible, to set it to start like this:

 

 

If this requires a change to one of the panel XML Files, I gladly do that for myself, if you point me to the correct location…

 

Same - minor one as well - on matchday, when you have the ticket with the game-ticket - it always start on Portuguese league as default. Is there a way to set "Bundesliga" as default?

If I want to switch the news source to “transfermarkt” - where would I need to put the two files (jpg, xml) ?

I really like how you have made the news screen, because the photos look a little larger and I like to identify the news photos well.

Hi. Thank you all for your kind words!!!!

 

Regarding the questions:

 

Darkside63

  1. First issue seen - on player detail screen, CA line is almost completely cut off… - yes. That is due the fact we don’t have the Ingame Editor (IGE). That box contains hidden attributes and only works after we install the IGE. Until that we have to choose other box in drop down arrow.
  2. The inbox bug – that is also present in the default skin. However, now I fixed it. The fix will be included in the next release of the skin.
  3. When going to tactic window, it always starts with the view including the bench - yes, for that go to team instructions mini overview.xml and change

<container class="tabbed_container" appearance="" id="Trak" default_item="blic" save_session_state="true">   

For

<container class="tabbed_container" appearance="" id="Trak" default_item="bloc" save_session_state="true">   

 

        4. For ticket: go to match team news panel.xml and change

<container class="tabbed_container" id="Xvfd" default_item="abcv" priority="1" save_session_state="true">

For

<container class="tabbed_container" id="Xvfd" default_item="avxs" priority="1" save_session_state="true">

 

         5. If I want to switch the news source to “transfermarkt” - where would I need to put the two files (jpg, xml) ? 

You just have to replace the current graphic for 365 (which is the default one), in graphics/boxes/news.

Replace the png file named football365.png for your of transfermarkt and keep the name football365.png

 

Stefanovski

The skin includes condition/sharpness. If it doesn’t work in your game, I believe is a conflict with other skin. Please keep only this skin in the skins folder, clear the cache, exit the game and reload it.

 

Also noticed that all the scouting screens now has a gap in between the list of players. this is also the case for the staff search. – If you are talking about the rows space, that is due to the fact that the skin includes the players faces (they are not showed in your screenshot – again, I believe is due to a conflict among skins).

Look at my screenshot

Yes you can use them. Maybe there are just a few that don’t work well….

Hey, guys!

 

I follow the instructions and extracted the skin on skins folder just like other skins that I've downloaded to test. But this one do not show on menu to select. Do you know something I could be doing wrong?

This is awesome, I applied your suggestions and everything worked - as expected 🙂 
Thanks a lot for sharing all this information with us.

Of course, I also donated - it's not much but hope it helps somewhat…

 

 

Btw, for those who prefer to have their players on loan (in/out) in the original colours - like I do - simply go to “settings\fm2024flutskin_dark settings.xml”

 

and search for

 

<colour name="loan out" red="249" green="189" blue="124" /> <!-- on loan to other club -->
<colour name="loan in" red="155" green="249" blue="155"/>    <!-- on loan from other club -->

 

and change to

 

<colour name="loan out" value="purple 300" /> <!-- on loan to other club -->
<colour name="loan in" value="blue 300"/>    <!-- on loan from other club -->

 

You can do the same for players on trial in/out … Trial in should be something close to value="green 300"

THis is oaky in my game. I believe is due the fact that you are playing with wide sidebar and not icons only. However I also tweaked that and I believe that in the next release it will be okay also playing with wide sidebar…

I have to confess that I still couldn't play yet. But yes, what I played really looks very good.
And thank you also for the support you have given in the answers to the many questions that are being posed here. 🙂 🙂
