Football Manager 2017 Skins - FM 2017 FLUT skin white - 2.8 (updated)

FM 2017 FLUT skin White - 2.8

Skin for FM 2017 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUTSKIN - White, for FM 2017 - Version 2.8

I had doubts about releasing this version, since it is not a new version but an update of the last one. However, considering the fact that I did a new scoreboard (for Pokal DFB) and also I included new changes in the news panel (now you can choose among 17 news headers) I decided to release it as the last version of FLUTSKIN for FM17.
An huge thank you to all FMfans who decided to use this skin and support my work with kind words of support!!

About this update
Well, after I released this version 2.8, I took a look at the wonderful work made by Jovovich in the match intro panels. Since he shared the files and said they can be included in free skins, I didn’t resist and I included it (with small changes) in this update. I think it is an amazing add on (you can see how it works HERE).
Thanks for the brilliant work, and thanks for sharing it, Jovovich!

I hope you enjoy it

Compatible with DF11 and Scope Faces

A special thank you to all great skinners who indirectly contributed to FLUTSKIN and a very special thank you to PATRES10 for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin).

Released: 17 June, 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).

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

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).

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

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.

    Hi DrAlban: Thanks. In order to change the font in titlebar you should change it in titlebar search panel, located in generic folder of the skin (inside the panels folder).
    Change: font="fonts/BebasNeue Bold" by font="fonts/the name of the font you want to use"

    For other, try to delete some xml files in the fonts folder of the skin. You can start by the file text.xml and afterwords by team_titlebar (it is in the fonts folder of the skin). Each time you delete one of the files, reload the game and look at the changes. Sorry but I change lots of fonts files and I can't remember all of them

    Flut hi. thnx for the good work
    I have a problem with the Greek Language, some letters seems to be not shown correctly.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi CGUltimateno: I can't help you since that problem are not related with the skin.
  • CGUltimateno's avatar
    I installed the skins and when I try to run DS4 Backgrounds Pic with all updates installed, it doesn't work and it doesn't even work in any skin.

    Hi Dandy: you're right. That information (between 0 and 200) only will be displayed if you have the in-game editor. That's why I didn't include it in my skin ( I also don't have the in game editor)
  • DANDY's avatar
    Hi Flut, (sorry my english)
    I love the skin, it's my favorite. I used it many years ago.
    I would like if it is possible, in the attribute panel or the profile of the players to be visible the "CA and PA"
    There is another skin called clinched that uses a panel that I have not seen in other skins.
    It is visible only if you have the in-game editor.

    Hi Urosjel: yes you can. Go to the settings.xml and serach for:

    <!-- background attribute box colours Flut 17 v1 -->
    <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="110" green="228" blue="228"/>
    <colour name="low attribute background" red="246" green="42" blue="42"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="255" green="156" blue="0"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="15" green="158" blue="15" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="28" green="207" blue="28" />

    Change the values of red, green and blue in the following line:

    <colour name="good attribute background" red="15" green="158" blue="15" />

    exit the game and reload it.
    Done :-)

    Hi Flut,can you please tell me if i can somehow change the color of boxes for attributes (11-15) to yellow?
  • Dimanaum's avatar
    Flut, thanks for the answer. I just turned Retina off and everything seems ок! Thank you!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Dimanaum: thanks. Your problem is related to your resolution. Try
    This and This

    Put in the graphics folder of the skin in the following path:


    and overwrite the originals

    You also can use this files I sent you for replace the paper100. For that you just have to duplicate these two files, change the name for paper100 and paper100@2x and place it in the same folder graphics/boxes/subsection/standard

  • Dimanaum's avatar
    Hi Flut! Your skin is awesome! But i have a problem.
    I use MacBook Pro 15 Retina. When the screen resolution is 1920x1200, everything is very small. When I increase the size of text and images (125%, 150%, 175, 200%), gray bars appear. How can I remove them, tell me please.

    Hi hoope: I don't know why it not works because it works fine in my game. Don't forget you have to click on a button (the square buttons with the competition logos in the bottom of lineups panel) in order to display the match introduction.
  • Hoope's avatar
    Hi Flut, a problem with jorovich's mod. why it's not working? I'd like that :)
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Sensei: for 2d kits you should download the 2d kits through the link I put in the Important Notes.
    In order to display the right logos, please read the pdf tutorial I included in the skin pack.
  • SenseiTJ2's avatar
    Hi Flut,

    The backleft and backright logos are appearing where I would not like them to be... i.e. the titlebar and also on the 'player background'...

    How do I fix this? I have tried deleting the backleft and backright folders from the logos/clubs but they simply revert to the FM standard logos... is this something to do with the Skin?

    I am using Metallic logos if that helps.

    Thanks for your help..

    Thank you Doddo!! I'm pleased you like it and I thank you all of your support!!

    thanks for the update flut my skinmaster!!!

    Hi Robbat: I noticed several differences in your screenshot (not only in the stars). Maybe there is a conflict among skins. Try to clean the cache and keep only this skin in the skins folder.
  • Robbat's avatar
    it's not intentionally. I have installed the skin as described. Why could it be that the stars are not displayed?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Robbat: I really don't know how to help you since you don't use my current stars.
  • Robbat's avatar

    by now I found out that I don't have the problem if I put the resolution to 1920x1080 and 100%. But actually I have a 4k display and would prefer to play with 3840x2180 resolution and 200% zoom.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Robbat: could you please put a screenshot?
  • Robbat's avatar
    Hi, I have the problem that the ability and potential circles are in the colors pinky and green and I cannot really identify what is the maximum.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi selcukklnc: use THIS

    Put it in the scoreboard_selector folder, located in the panels folder of the skin.
  • selcukklnc's avatar
    Hi @Flut,

    Is there a way to remove "weather condition, date and type of tournament(like friendly etc.)" from premier league scoreboard?

    These information ruin the scoreboard, I think.
