Updated 13/02/17, I have updated this version as I have fixed a few problems that were reported. Also made a few changes like new match titlebar, Tweaked player overview, manager/staff screen, Match post match ect

Added the option to add your own picture to the game via preferences, re-worked club overview and player overview, Added boxed attributes to play/staff popup panels. Background selector now working. Re-worked some news screen panels, New match preview line-up panel and various other tweaks and fixes.. 26/12/16

    Posted on FLUT & Andromeda,

    Hi Flut & thebantams, just to make you aware the filter doesn't seem to work on the squad depth (big pitch) screen for either of your skins (I see andromeda has a new release today which admittedly I haven't downloaded but it was applicable to the previous version) I have the same problem with my skin. We've all opted for horizontal pitches but regardless this panel doesn't seem to like being inserted into a skin. Simply copying across the base panel seems to cause issues regardless of whether it's modified or not. I've simply chosen to delete this panel for now so just a heads up.. Ta

    Great Skin!!! Is there a way i can stop the stadium pictures alternating with the default image on the club info screen when on 85% zoom.? I have downloaded the stadium mega pack which works well but it stays for a short period then changes to default image then back again.

    oh okay , thanks for showing to me.. nice skin ..
  • thebantams's avatar
    Thank you Jorginio, :) You can change them colours yourself via the preferences

    MaVet I added the positions to the box on the far right hand side of the player overview. For the CA and PA numbers you will need to purchase the in game editor via steam for them to show. For the pro's and cons i have added that the the attributes box as that is bigger.

    Roga go away and make a light skin yourself,

    What a ugly skin! its too black, its like playing an emo game.
  • MaVeT's avatar
    and this more..

    - My CA-PA not showing the number
    - Report and Comparasion. i think report should pros and cons.

    thinks your skin will look great..
    thanks , just my suggestion and my problem.

    hi. i have problem here,why i can`t find position panel. im using 1366x768 resolution.
  • jorginio's avatar
    The best skin around!!!
    Although i never understood why in most skins they color the 16+ attributes with red.Red usually means bad.
    Anyway thank you for the best skin on air!

  • Bartdude's avatar
    Yeah in skins where it's active the game will crash if the first thing you do on loading is hit the BS icon but weirdly if you select a few screens then go back to the BS icon it works !
  • thebantams's avatar
