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.

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.

I'm not sure if the issue was discussed. Is it possible to change the view during the match so that the team name bar is one color without a gradient?

Absolutely not, the gradation stops the team shirt being bleached out.

Will the Skin need to be updated following the FM24 update released today, or should it all still work fine?

Can someone please help me out with the few issues below?

I have followed the instructions to move and resize the name and numbers for my resolution, but im having a few other issues i can't workout, or find the information to correct myself.

 

  • Half a transparent club logo in the background and across the front kit. I tried using the files in the skin alt folder for ‘club logo fix’ but this must be something else?
  • Front kit shows ‘plain’ / default colours, but i have the SS kit version with proper kit design and logos showing on the club info screen. How do i get it to show here?
  • Kits overlapping. I couldn't see in the xml (kit icon 38 i think) for this profile tab where i could move them away from each other.
  • How do i remove the transparent FC12 kit underneath the SS kit? I thought i done the right thing in copying the SS files and overwriting in the skin folder, but i have clearly missed something here too.

 

 

Thanks for any advice.

Hi.

Go to match incidents left score.xml and also match incidents right score.xml and in the 2nd code of match incidents left score.xml change left for paper2. Do the same for the match incidents right score.xml, changing “right” for paper2. Exit the game and reload it.

To the best of my knowledge, yes. There is a bug in the reserves availability, when we try to set all players (in inbox panel) but that bug is not related to the skin since it also happens in the default skin.

Yes. The code has removed and the old code doesn't work. So, for use a own manager profile picture you will have to add your own picture to the "player picture folder" with the ID of you as a manager. According an explanation in Skinning Hodeout forum, since FM 24.2 a manager is considered a "regen" picture. you will need to add "-r" to the code. So if your ID# is for example: "2002117708" the code in the config.xml in the player pictures folder will need to show:

        <record from="r-2002117708" to="graphics/pictures/person/r-2002117708/portrait"/>

Hi

 

  • Half a transparent club logo in the background and across the front kit. I tried using the files in the skin alt folder for ‘club logo fix’ but this must be something else? - that is because you are using background left or right logos. You should remove them
  • Front kit shows ‘plain’ / default colours, but i have the SS kit version with proper kit design and logos showing on the club info screen. How do i get it to show here? - You should have the 2D kits adapted for flutskin. Please read the skin presentation for using FC KITS or SSKits.
  • Kits overlapping. I couldn't see in the xml (kit icon 38 i think) for this profile tab where i could move them away from each other. - if you are using the option player without background, you should edit the player without background.xml, changing the left inset in the code lines, 249 and 265.
  • How do i remove the transparent FC12 kit underneath the SS kit? I thought i done the right thing in copying the SS files and overwriting in the skin folder, but i have clearly missed something here too. - it seems you still have something from the folders containing FC kits. Look inside all the folders in graphics/(pictures/2d/outfield

Those alts are related to the V5 style of FlutSkin for FM23. I left those alts in the pack because I believe they work and there were many people in the last season who prefer playing with that layout (however, I really didn't test them in FM24 Skin) although with some information missing. But, you can test them (saving the originals xmls you will replace with them) and always back to the current version again.

Hello, for the first time I have the problem that the city photos are not displayed. And the outside view of the stadiums in the second picture on the right is not shown either. just the inside of the stadium. and the respective backgrounds in the skins themselves are not visible. what could be the reason? I did everything as usual. and things went well for years. and I'm not the only one with the problem.

Well. Everything is okay in my game. Thus, I can't help you. Sorry. Try to clear the cache, exit the game, keep this skin only in the skins folder of the game and reload it.

@flut it is possible to include that in your next Version of your Skin? i think, it is fine and one more step for immersion.

i found that in the Tangfu Skin 24.1.5 Skin.

= big Picture of the Stuff + dark background wallpaper, but not really dark dark background wallpaper (i think, best way for reading Text)
* for other wallpaper, i will search .. but bigger Picture of Stuff, thanks if you edit that..

Hi. Yes is possible. However, increasing that header (as in the screenshot you sent) will interfere with many panels in news panel, which are adapted in their dimensions (namely the height) to the current header height….Beyond lots of work to adjust them, I really prefer to have the small header and bigger graphics and more information (without scrolling) in the news panel…Thus, thank you for your suggestion, but I'm affraid I will not implement it. Sorry…
