FM 2017 FLUT skin dark - Final Version Installation Instructions
Skin Dark (Final Version) for FM 2017 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

Compatible with DF11 and Scope faces.

I would like to start by expressing my acknowledgment to all FMfans who keep me motivated to edit the FlutSkin with kind words of support and stimulus.
In spite of my great recognition to all FM Skinners and graphic/addons producers that make our FM experience much more exciting, I would like to express a special thank you to PATRES10, for the tailor-made default kits I included in the skin; to NECJEFF, for the original creation of country locator that I adapted in Flutskin; to JOVOVICH, for the wonderful match intro panels; to SIRWILL and PIKAWA, for the match scoreboards I included in the skin; and, “last but not the least”, to RUNE, who has always shared his ideas with me, was responsible for the most innovative idea to improve FM skins visual – the citypics – and who has been a “compagnon de route” since the beginning of this journey.
All of you are the main source of inspiration that has made possible to improve FlutSkin since the first time (in FM13) I decided to try to edit a skin.



About this update
This version does not include "structural" (or big) changes. It includes, however, several tweaks in different panels, namely in the following:
- News panel: pre-season report team preview, post match analysis, pre-match opponent analysis and team report panel tweaked
- Match preview, Match overview and Match pre-match panel: all the lineups in those panels were tweaked
- Match titlebar score: scoreboard was tweaked
- Flut match scoreboard (tweaked)
- Match introduction: League one, Serie A, K League, Bundesliga included (from Jovovich); Liga NOS included (non official intro, made based on EPL league)
- Board room ( “new” )
- Club overview panel: slightly larger club kits and Last XI tweaked.

I hope you enjoy this version!
See you in FM18!!!



Released: 27 August, 2017

Resolution requirements:

This skin was made to work properly in 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

In this pack I included a TUTORIAL PDF with instructions regarding the structure of your Graphics folder in order to view the citypics, the kits and the competition logos in player details and in title bar.

You can download the 2D kits for displayed in player overview panel and titlebar HERE or HERE

You also can download the citypics (and much more) in the Backgrounds Superpack made by DAZS8 (with some contribution from myself and other FM Fans), HERE

How to add Flut Skin in FM17

Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2017flutskin" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM17 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2017 Flut Skin - Dark - Final Version as option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  4. Hit the Confirm button.
Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

Great Skin Amazing Work!!! I love the flut skin every Year More!!!
How do you move the player profile picture to the right on the main player overview screen?
Thank you so much Flut! Amazing work.

I didn't know how to contact you, but I remember last year you did the Kits for Liga Nos, Liga Pro and Campeonato de Portugal Prio. I've seen the first two already done this year, can I pleeeease make a request that you work on Campeonato de Portugal Prio once more this year? De Português para Português, hehe.

Thanks. Your work makes the game so much nicer.
Very nice skin but since my laptop max resolution is 1366x768, so it looks a bit messy. Hope you will make the fit version for 1366x768

Can i use a bigger sidebar? It´s a GREAT skin!!!
Awesome. Can't wait to download the normal version.
-EDIT-

Never mind. Figured it out. My memory is slowly coming back

Hi Flut, another great skin. I did have a question though. The text on the side bar, (squad, tactics, etc) is permanently white. Is it possible to make it the same colour as the icon next to it?
Can you adapt to higher resolutions this year? most displays on new machines will be 2560x1440p now.

Love the skin tho thank you.
as a heads up the resource archiver is now available for download
thank you love your work

but can we have the option of not having the hidden attributes visible?
@Doddo: thanks :-)

@TobeyMason: For now it is a little bit difficult. However in the next version will be very easy. Thus, please, ask me again when I release the next version of the skin.

@DinisLopes: Thanks :-) Regarding the kits..I really don’t know if I can do it. I already did a few – 4 or 5 - but there are many teams to do it, I need to do all the research work in order to know the kits…and I have not much free time.

@SeVengeance and @GS1981 : Thanks. Unfortunately I don’t intend to edit the skin for other resolutions. Sorry :-(

@peps_place and @TH26:
Thanks. Regarding the sidebar, the colour of the text is already fixed and will be okay in the next version. If you want, for now you can use THIS until there and the sidebar will change for the default style). Put the file inside the folder “generic” in panels/generic. Replace the folder “menubar” by this one I sent you.

@Kevin Swain and roykela
: Thank you!!

@kingrobbo: yes, I know. Thanks. I’m working now with the help of RA.

@micvik: Thanks. In order to not display the hidden attributes you just have to go to the player folder (inside of the panels folder), and delete the xml named player additional attributes panel. Of course you need to reload the game in order to apply the default information you want.
Brilliant skin,

but is there anyway of changing the side panel text colour? The white text is unreadable on my Derby fm.

Hi rhys: Thanks. Yes. In the next version that bug will be fixed. In meantime if you read one of my comments above, you will find a way to return to the default sidebar. cheers

Thank you so much
hello fantastic job every year.
to change all config files it takes so long.
there is a program that creates the config files?

Hi MarcoVanb: Thanks :-) Regarding the program you can use notepad++ and change all the config in a folder at once.
Hi Flut, Beautiful skin. I'm crashing every time I continue to the match screen. Any ideas?
Great skin Flut. You make FM so much more enjoyable and look forward to the white version.
Hi wetfred: Thanks. Regarding the crashes I really appreciate if you could tell me exactly how in what panel and when the game crashes (and if crash when you click on some stuff)

Hi matg: Thanks :-)
The crash happens on match day when I hit the continue button to enter the match preview screen. I've tried it 4 times and it crashed every time.

I used the default skin to get past that match and no crashes on the following match. I'll keep you updated.

It never happens to me..yet. Try to "delete" the match pre match.xml
Hi Flut. Love the skin. Don't no if it me but how do you put the kits in the player preview screen. I've read the PDF you attached but I don't understand where do I get the kits and comp logos from for the left as I've got the main kits n logos etc but not the kits for backleft. Hope you understand.
Hi Flut, Beautiful skin. I'm crashing every time I continue to the match screen. Any ideas?


I am having the same problem and had to go back to the FM skin to keep playing.
Hi Davaldo: you have to duplicate the normal logos and kits and make the new configs like I explain in the tutorial.

Hi matg: Try to delete the match pre match panel.xml and please tell me if the crashes still happen. Thanks.
Greeting,

I abolished the file match pre panel.xml match as asked and more of crash for my part.

Grieved for translation I am French and I used translator
Hi Flut

Great skin, where do i find the in-game editor tab?

unfortunately with your skin this year the game he crashes.

Just part of the first league game.

Hi MarcoVanb: yes. I don't know what happens. I'm trying to find where is the problem....
Hi MarcoVanb: yes. I don't know what happens. I'm trying to find where is the problem....
