I'm happy to present you my skin, which I'm creating in collaboration with the biggest German FM-Streamer and Blogger FM.Zweierkette. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

 

The skin is a dark version and characterised by its small improvements, paired with the colours and features of FM.Zweierkette, without being far away from the original FM user interface.

 

It is important to us not to change the FM user interface too drastically, but to expand it in a meaningful way.

 

Please note, however, that with this skin I am leaving my usual environment of pure graphics editing (e.g. my Norseman's Logopack) and entering new territory with skinning. Therefore, not everything will run smoothly right away and there will still be some minor bugs here and there. But I'm having a lot of fun with it and I'm trying to acquire the knowledge quickly in order to get better at it.

 

That's why I'd like to thank the skin creators, who have been doing a great job for years, inspiring me to create my own skin and from whose work I can learn and understand a lot.

Is the skin only in German?

I do have problems that the skin isn't activated. I have tried it several times (of course like it is shown in the installation instructions and normally to โ€œinstallโ€ a skin is no big deal), but there is still the standard skin visible.

Ok, that's very strange. Did you put the skin file in the skin folder of your FM user folder? If you can select my skin in the game, have you cleared the cache before?

Oh, I don't have one. I got it up and running but didn't want it to be only in German. I got it all solved tho.

So is the skin ok for you now? If you still find a problem somewhere, please let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yep, of course! I guess I was confused because I downloaded your update and haven't read that you needed to change the player profile. After I tried it with (the same) version, but from a different website, I have seen your comment there! :-D

 

Feedback: I don't like that the stadium is visible in the background. But overall, I am looking forward once the skin is ready and will try it again as soon as the game is finally released.

The stadium as a background is due to a stadium pack that you are using. If you use the Mini Stadium Pack, the stadiums are only shown on the Club Page and the background is then displayed correctly. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this skin, there is only one issue and one recommendation id like to say:

  • the  ingame stamina heart-shaped visualizers aint working, updating only on the half time break
  • the left toolbar menu could change its color to either the team your searching // the team of a player your searching or to the team your currently managing.

As attached, the stamina indicators at the bottom of the screen are different to the ones at the top. They update at half time/any time I make a substitution. Great skin apart from that though ๐Ÿ‘

Thank you for your feedback. I am still working on fixing the bug.

Regarding your idea, I will probably leave it as it is. Our goal is to keep the look of the original user interface and to expand it sensibly, because we actually like the standard UI. Only the colours of FM.Zweierkette will find their way into the skin in some places. ๐Ÿ™‚

Firstly, love the skin. Great progress so far. I've noticed that the opposition pass map doesn't show when in the tablet during a match. It only shows my team's pass map. Secondly, if I have club stadium pictures downloaded, it interferes with the left menu background.

Can you please remove the stadium background on the left side column? It messes with the wording and makes it hard to read! Much appreciated. Everything else is great for me !

The bug with the pass map is also known and will be fixed in the next version.

Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with my skin in the first place. You have to use a stadium pack that is used as a background.

 

There is a mini stadium pack which only inserts the stadium pictures in the club profile. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the best skin alongside Zealand's - thanks! Danke! 

 

It is nearly perfect: only minor problem is the icon sidebar that has urban photo on the background, which makes it difficult to read the icons (see image). (The most common problem in most skins is the huge background photos that make it nearly impossible to read the page - not the case with Norseman's, thanks).

Do you use a background pack? If so, that's where the problem lies. The FM.Zweierkette skin is not designed for background packs and is only compatible with the Mini Stadium Pack if you want to see the stadiums in the club profile. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, I use the mega background packs but am willing to uninstall it. I only installed them because I like to see the stadium photo in the club profile. 

 

Can you please share the link to the Mini Stadium Pack? I couldn't find it. Many thanks.

Honestly, what a brilliant skin!  Iโ€™ve been searching so long for a skin like this. Pretty much everything is perfect! I just have a couple of recommendations tho ๐Ÿ™‚

Recommendations: 

  • It would be greatly appreciated if you could add the League Table to the Club info screen is, or at least have the option to in a drop down section as that is key info to know about a club immediately when looking on the profile screen. I think it would be best placed in the bottom left where currently info of club rivals and legends are.
  • On the Player Profile screen it would be great to have the option of Recent form to be showed as a rating bar graph to view it clearer, rather than a line graph.
  • If possible, make it possible to create a custom scouting view in the scouting centre and for recruitment focus

Hi,

 

Awesome skin, this is exactly what I was looking for!

 

There are a few bugs (some which already has been reported):

 

  • Opposition pass map is not working (I saw that a fix is comming)
  • Player stamina/bar at the bottom is not updating in matches (Saw that you're investigating the bug)
  • When hovering over staff it's showing two images on top of each other (see attatched file)

 

Besides these things it seems perfect!

Awesome skin! I found one bug that bothers me a lot. During the match, the opponent's pass map seems to not be displaying correctly. No matter what I do, I am only able to see my team's pass map.

The last point has been fixed by me and will be included in the next version. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

The first two points with the pass map and the fitness of the players in the 3D match unfortunately seem to be a skin-related bug on the part of SI. I used the original lines of code from FM24 and these bugs still occur. I have also used other skins and checked them, and these two bugs also occur there. ๐Ÿ˜ข

 

I will not give up and try to eliminate these bugs, but it is possible that I will not be able to do this if the bug on the part of SI actually remains.

Thank you for your feedback and your ideas. I'm very pleased that you like my skin so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

About your wishes: I can't promise that they will find their way into my skin. FM.Zweierkette and I have a certain idea of how we want to design the skin, but we are happy to listen to your ideas and wishes and consider whether we can implement them.
