Steklo is considered the best skin released so far for FM 2008. And thus, we bring it to you!

Steklo, in case you were wondering, is the phonetic pronunciation of the Russian word for glass.

It comes with both left and right hand side versions, each with a choice of 3 backgrounds (grass, a black lacquered wood effect and a Vista style backdrop).


This is version 1.3 and probably the final one.

How to use it:
1. Extract the downloaded zip file.
2. You will see 3 folders. Copy 'steklo' folder, which the default skin with the bar on the right, in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\skins
3. Open FM2008, go to Preferences > Display & Sound. You should be able to see the Steklo skin in the skins selection
4. Confirm

If you experience any problems, please post them here as comments, or start a new topic in the forums about it.

    I've copied it into the skins folder, but then i went on FM and went on preferences, dispaly and it wasnt an option, only FM Defaul and FM Right Sided
  • you can change that. dont remember exactly where it is, but just search through the files in the skin folder and u should see the picture of that star

    i dont like it when you load up with the star with steklo in the middle i would use it if it didnt have that
  • what killerdanfm said but to make it easier, there should be a map with 'backgrounds' the one you want to use should be named as 'defualt'.

    "there are 3 backgrounds as it says. I'm curious to know how to change between these 3 background?

    cheers"

    i wondered at first but if you look on the config xml file it uses what ever is called 'default'. i cut all the backgrounds i didnt want into another folder just i case i wanted the, for use leter.

    then finally re-name your choice default and reload you skin choice. done

  • Extract the downloaded zip file. You will see 3 folder. 1 of them is called 'steklo', which the default skin with the bar on the right. Copy this folder in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\skins
