"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!

    @handyfernandy, try to re-download the skin once more. I will re-upload the files in a second. Got no problems extracting those files so if that won't help I don't know what more I can do...
    @nihat1702, IR button is already in.
    @KingOfTheDivan, great! If You have got any problems on that resolution just let me know. I will try to fix that ASAP.
    @Zen7198, player overview screen coming soon.
    @D_LO_, exactly. A lot of You guys wanted already what I've got so I released CFM Skin. It is not much for now but it is better than nothing. Hopefully a lot more coming out soon...
    @bellidne, there is an option to edit followers in social feed panel. On the left side "Manage" button allows You to edit that. On news page I can't see any button in default skin. Can You show me where it is? No problem. Have fun!

    Lovely :) I absolutly love it, but can you tell me how to make the side-bar non-transparent ?
  • Shaunessy1983's avatar
    Again the best skin for Low resolution. Just one thing after running through for the next update. On the news+social feed the following list on the right has no option where you can edit who you follow. Just a small thing I noticed. Once again thank you Pikawa.

  • handyfernandy's avatar
    Sorry, but the files cannot ekstract by win rar. Can you fix it tks bro
  • pikawa's avatar
    @KingOfTheDivan, no it shouldn't be. Re-download the skin. I already deployed a hotfix. For that resolution I highly recommend using small sidebar (can be changed in FM settings). Zoom Out (95% or 85%) is also a nice thing.

    Should the left panel be so big? (I use 1360x768)
