"Crisp, clean, simple, full of information and elegant"
"Great skin. Exactly what i was looking for. Thank you."
"I believe this is the best skin so far. Good job mate."
"Thanks for this skin for me it's the best of this year"


CFM Skin was over 60.000 downloads on only last year which is a really big achievement for me as a pretty young skinner on a scene. The amount of support I received from you guys while creating that project is unreal. From now expectations are going to be bigger and bigger but I am almost sure that I can give you guys the best possible stuff to improve your gaming experience every year! This year I started really late but it will not stop me. I will prove that it was worth to wait!


CFM Skin 2018 is still in a BETA phase. If You find out any issues, report them as fast as You can! Any ideas are much appreciated. A lot of new stuff is still coming soon so keep an eye on skin.


Skin should easily handle all of the popular resolutions these days (for laptop and PC). The lower ones looks much better with small sidebar. The higher ones can be used with both. Also zooms (75% and 125%) working great so this option can be used to improve the gaming experience without any problems!


Brand new layout - better than ever, new graphics (including buttons, icons etc.), a lot of panels transferred from CFM Skin 2017 to 2018 and a few brand new ones... that is what CFM Skin 2018 contains. Everything looks clean, elegant and at the same time is full of informations - with CFM impossible becomes possible!


"CFM Skin 2018 +" is a special version with an additional stuff. It contains a few brand new animated panels for even better gaming experience! Much more still incoming! Read "Access to CFM Skin 2018 +" file inside the .rar for more informations!

Big thanks to the whole skinning community for a lot of motivation and insipration!

    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins\

  3. Run Football Manager 2018 and go to Preferences > Interface.
    You should see "CFM Skin 2018” as an option in the skin drop down of the General options section.

    What cities and stadiums packs should be used to work with the CFM+ skin? I'm struggling to find any.

    @Azealic, I already tried to move that tactic screen from 17 to 18 but without success. There is still something that I dislike about that... but I will try again for sure.
    Player overview panel incoming soon so for sure I will try to find a spot for that somewhere. No problem
  • Azealix's avatar
    Will you be adding the tactics screen from last years skin to the 2018 version? Also, have you considered adding a hidden attributes panel like the OPZ or Tiki Taka skin have?
  • pikawa's avatar
    @Lupus Immortalis, working on it right now. Should be available next week
  • Lupus Immortalis's avatar

    Will you be adding a player overview panel like last year? This is something I am missing very much from any skin that's looking good to me.

    EDIT: For me, it's mostly about the column on the left with all the player information at a glance.
  • pikawa's avatar
    @prongs, got it. Will try to fix it as soon as possible
  • prongs's avatar

    @pikawa hey i have an issue were the cities aren't showing up for me, i was wondering where should i place my backgrounds megapack to get them to work. thanks! great skin by the way.
  • MarlonBrando's avatar
    ...and one more request to bring the player faces in the pitch on the tactics screen!!
  • MarlonBrando's avatar
    brilliant. exactly what i was looking for! thank you!
    One quick request please: if you can make the citypic and stadiumpic in the club overview panel to match the exact size of 400x240 in the image.
    It;s just that from the vitrex skins we used in the previous years this was the analysis in all our images and now that the windows are larger the pictures are zoomed in and thus not great...
    thanks again!
  • pikawa's avatar
    @bellidne, no problem!
  • Shaunessy1983's avatar
    @pikawa I am an idiot. Sorry. Best skin once again for me and it's only the beta. I will share with my friends and facebook group if ok?
