This skin is designed for 1920x1080 resolution. It should work with other resolutions but I don't test every single panel with every possible resolution. If you're using a different resolution and something doesn't display correctly please post your resolution and a screenshot of the issue and I'll do my best to fix it. However, I will NOT fix issues related to using different zoom levels. If you use any zoom level other than 100% you will have problems.

Installation instructions

Step 1

Download the skin.

Step 2

Extract the files (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Move the folders inside into your skins folder:

Win Vista/7/8/10: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\skins
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\skins
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2016/skins

Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

Step 3

Start the game and go to Preferences screen and Interface tab.
You should see "Wannachupbrew-FM16-(version number)” as an option in the skin drop down of the General options section.

Hit the Confirm button.

Let me know of any bugs
It seems that you have not included the report card graphics that I posted earlier on page 2. It includes the new ones too. In player's personal information panel the date of birth is not lined correctly. I tried to figure out the reason, but couldn't find it yet.

Skin looks great but I don't see a players D.O.B when clicking on profile and down the bottom right (I can't take screenshot) its jumbled up on a players profile, part from that its class.
Hi. I installed the skin, but the menu on left continues with the same size.

How to get the left menu smaller?

-----------------

I found on preferences. Thanks and good job, your skins are always the best.

Whoops! forgot about the report card icons, I'll add them in now. Can you send me a screenshot of the D.O.B. issue?

If you're on Windows just search for 'snipping tool' in the start menu, you can use that to save an image of a section of the screen. If I can't see a screenshot then I won't know what to fix.

Okay I think I've sorted it out.

Hey, since the last update I'm getting the Out of Memory warning crash on my Mac, was working fine on the last version (which I've now deleted - Doh!) don't spose you could share the last version again?
After this last update whenever I quit the game and playing it again it will always stuck on loading screen that shows loading word on different languages. If I playing it without quiting then it works just fine, but when I quit the game and try to playing it again it always stuck like I said above. The only solution are deleting this skins. Anyone have the same problem?
Mine also does not load the second time I start the game up, I mean you can't see a players DOB next to his face anywhere, you have to go looking for it.
Yes, same problem: gets stuck on loading screen on relaunch.
Yes, same problem: gets stuck on loading screen on relaunch.
For anyone having the infinite loading screen problem; It's fixed in the next update but for now just delete 'intro panel.xml' in 'panels/game'

Hrm. Every time I select the new skin I get the out of memory warning and the game crashes. And now the skin has been chosen all subsequent game loads cause the game to crash...

I have deleted Cache & Prefs and verified game cache through steam several times but everytime I select the skin again, it crashes...any other ideas...gutted as I've got so used to this skin I don't enjoy playing without it now!

PS. I'm on a Mac
hi, can i use it on a screen with 1600x900 resolution?
errors have been fixed in version 1.2.1

Should be fine, you'll just be missing a few of the panels.

I can't think of anything that could cause this, nothing has been added that would use more memory than previous versions. Is it doing it with any other skins or the default skin? Are you using v1.2.0 or v1.2.1?

Hey I'm using 1.2.1, just tried it with Andromeda and it crashed again, so seems to be all skins. FM was working fine until the other day, Have SI done something that screwed with all the 3rd party skins then?

I haven't seen anyone else reporting the same issue on any other forums, so it may be something on your end. Does it work fine with the default skin? How much RAM does your mac have?

You could try setting your Rendering Mode to Software:
How to change from GPU Rendering to Software [Universal]
To do this via the in-game preferences, follow the instructions below:
- Enter your in-game preferences
- Click the 'Interface' tab
- Within the 'General' panel change the 'Rendering Mode' from 'GPU Assisted' to 'Software'
- Click the 'Confirm' button
If you cannot access your preferences screen you can change this when first launching the game on the splash screens by pressing and briefly holding:
ALT + SHIFT + F10 all at the same time.
This should change the game from GPU Rendering to Software Rendering mode.

I know you said you tried deleting preferences and your cache and reverifying, but just check these instructions first to make sure you did it correctly:
Mac OS X (all versions)
Open Finder.
Click the "Go" menu in the menubar.
OS X 10.7 Lion and later only: Press and hold down the "Option" (Alt) key.
Click the "Library" item in the menu.
Go into the folder named "Application Support" then "Sports Interactive".
To clear everything (preferences, caches, etc)

Delete the folder named "Football Manager 2016".
To clear the caches only

Go into the folder named "Football Manager 2016"
Delete the folder named "Caches"
To clear the preferences only

Go into the folder named "Football Manager 2016"
Delete the folder named "Preferences"

How to Verify my Game Cache [Universal]
- Load Steam
- From the 'Library' section, right-click on the game and select 'Properties' from the menu.
- Select the 'Local Files' tab and click the 'Verify Integrity of Game Cache' button.
- Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes. This will always download a number of files even if you've just verified the game.
- Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.
- We recommend verifying your cache twice to make sure all files are fully downloaded.

Thanks for the help mate, posted to SI forums.

I did all those Cache & Preferences deletions correctly, and my setup is:
iMac 27" 4GHz, intel core i7
32GB RAM
AMD Radeon 4GB
OSX El Capitan
FM 16.1.1

So shouldn't really be a problem...

Just tried your other suggestion of changing the Rendering Mode to Software prior to selecting a skin, but got the out of memory crash again
One of the best skins out there

For anyone running on 1920x1080 or higher res and want bigger faces (such as to make the most of Sortitoutsi's cutout megapack), here's the answer to the question I asked Wannachupbrew on Reddit:


1 )Open the 'player overview panel.xml' file in the 'panels' folder.

2) Look for this line:

<container class="horizontal_adaptive_container" offset="0" inset="0" gap="0" minimum_height="170" priority="1" default_height="170">

3) Change default_height="170" to default_height="180". Most face packs are 180px (Soritoutsi's cutout megapack is 180x180px) so any bigger than 180 and you'll lose image quality but you can set this up to 200 if you want.

4) Save the file and refresh the skin in FM16 (pressing Shift+R while in-game should make it refresh)


Again thanks for the help and great skin!

Hi Rowan. I had the same issue on my Mac with this skin and some others. You have to untick "Use Retina Display" under preferences. That should do the trick.

Hi Goodsoul, I tried that, and still got the Out of Memory crash.

EDIT - Just realised, I had to shut down game, restart it out of Retina mode and then move the skin into the skins folder and then select it...seems to be working for now, thanks for your help!

I noticed the colums are still a bit messed up at times (not all the time) some times the morale column displays the text (like: very good.....superb... etc) and other times it doesn't.
Really like the update, a few minor changes that make looking for information a lot more pleasant. Nice work!
Thanks for the great skin
hi, i can't change the tv logo. how can i do it?
Whenever I try to use this skin it causes a crash dump. Any way to fix this or if there will be an update?
I have the same question of Palo90. Here just appears Fox Sports logo and I want to use SportvHD logo.

I tried to rename SportTv to "default" (like was Fox Sports logo) but still with Fox Sports during the match. How can I change??

Im using 1.2.0
