If your skin is not working with 15.2 you will need to make the following changes. Please authors of skins do this as soon as possible, if you are not the author and very desperate then you should be able to follow the instructions and do it yourself as well.

http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/413341-Important-Skins-in-FM15.2

Simple Instructions

WARNING YOU ARE PROBABLY BETTER OFF WAITING FOR THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR OF THE FILE TO DO THIS, BUT HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS ANYWAY.

1) Find the folder for your skin in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/skins
- It will probably be named the name of the skin e.g. "Scorpio"
- There may be more than one folder if there are different versions

2) Within the folder find a file named the same as the name of the folder but with the extension .xml
- e.g: "Scorpio.xml"

3) Rename this file to be called "skin_config.xml"

4) Edit this file in some sort of text editor such as notepad and add this line just BEFORE the last time it says record

- Make sure to replace the name of the skin (obviously)


<string id="skin_name" value="THE_NAME_OF_THE_SKIN" />
</record>

Full Explanation

In FM15.1 skins you’d have this –

\skins
…\fm dark\
…\fm dark\fm dark.xml

The new format for 15.2 is now

\skins
…\fm dark\
…\fm dark\skin_config.xml

Any folder with the skin_config.xml will be discovered, and the folder name is not important anymore.

The folder name of the skin is now defined within the skin_config.xml itself with a line like this –

<string id="skin_name" value="fm dark" />
This value is important as it’s used to find a skin, and required to work in FM15.2.

In 15.2, if a skin is set, and isn’t found through the new skin discovery mechanism, it will fall back to the games default skins so any pre-existing 3rd party skin someone may be using would have their skin changed to the default until their 3rd party skin is updated, and can then be re-selected.
hi there after the new patch i have lost my skins and also my 3d kits do you know why??
Would you be able to post a screenshot of what the edited scorpio skin should look like please???
It's a change to one file (rename scorpio.xml to skin_config.xml, then edit it and add the following line (the line immediately after the 'required_version' line is fine)

<string id="skin_name" value="scorpio" />

Save, then go back to the game preferences, and it should appear.

There may be other things that are different in 15.2 (it looks like there's been a couple of other tweaks done) but the skin maker will have to sort those for you.
It would be great to get a screenshot as someone suggested, because i have mine at:

<string id="skin_name" value="scorpio" />


For the Scorpio skin obviously but it's still not reading the skin no matter what i do.

You've got the skin name bit wrong (you also appear to have translated it, which definitely won't work).

Just replace that line with this:

<string id="skin_name" value="scorpio" />

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I've tried everything and it won't work for me!

I've followed the instructions for Scorpio and FM 2015 Flut Skin Dark and neither show up in preferences.

I've amended everything as per the instructions in text editor.

I've tried clear cache and reload skin to no avail.

Is there anything else I may have missed?

You help would be greatly appreciated
Also, are all the instructions the same for both Windows and Mac? As I am a Mac user

Thanks
I've got a problem with Scorpio, I use the small sidebar skin but when I load it up it's the same as the normal one, which is playing havoc with my selection view on tactics page.
Any ideas?
