Football Manager 2022 Skins - Dark Polish FM22 Skin v1.2
Default dark skin how I believe it should be. If you want to keep originality of the game with some not intrusive visual improvements, Dark Polish is what you are looking for. It's clean and low-res friendly.

Version 1.2 changelog:
- brighter active toggles, because team registration was pain until now
- european competition logo icon in club overview (if qualified)
- some very small tweaks and fixes

Version 1.1 changelog:
- Home button, FM button and Instant Result button in match screen (you can now leave the match however you need for whatever reason)
- Fixed coach/scout summary in player overview - with both Current Ability and Potential stars (this one got messed up by game update, I had to redesign it closer to original skin)
- More vivid club colors in scoreboard (some looked pretty ugly, white especially), also some pixelwork with its corners
- A bit sharper topbar club logo (this one I updated couple days after release, so only very early downloaders will see any difference)
- Disabled "huge" database depth option (not working anymore, apparently scrapped by developers internally with final release)
- Restored "What's new" popup by clicking on the game logo in main menu
- Updated french flag in languages section

Dark Polish Skin 22 includes:
- consistent shades of gray
- ProximaNova font from older FMs
- improved background selector
- "Instant Result" button with post-match popup
- player pictures and role suitability pies on tactic screen
- past meetings panel under tactic screen (visible on high-res)
- ribbon navigation in Preferences
- club profile overhaul (original by Pikawa)
- stadium picture option in club profiles (default one has dynamic colour)
- dynamic colours of sidebar, continue buttons and circle icons
- scoreboard with logos instead of ugly 6-letter names
- slightly modified player attributes section
- coloured backgrounds of social media club avatars
- removed pointless club logo from news item (staff photos are a bit larger now)
- removed bold and uppercase from headings
- new FM flags instead of old ones in language change menu
- fixed broken news feed pictures

About background selector:
- FM22 skin overlay has less transparency than FM21's, so bg selector works more like sidebar selector. I chose some competition themed backgrounds which may be of better use for this gimmick (at least if you're not using "icons-only" option). You can always replace backgrounds with your own at: Dark Polish Skin 22\graphics\backgrounds.

About sidebar:
If you wish for plain dark gray sidebar, you can disable/enable its colour theme by changing between first and last background in the selector.

About role suitability pies:
- Since some people don't like them, I made replacement files for those who wish to get rid of the pies only, and keep the player photos. Go to: Dark Polish Skin 22\panels\tactics - and use two "no pies" files to replace their counterparts.

About scoreboard:
Optional scoreboard with full team names is included as well. Find labeled file at: Dark Polish Skin 22\panels\match - and replace its counterpart with it.

About fonts:
This one is easy. If you wish to bring back the original FM22 fonts, just go to Dark Polish Skin folder and delete "fonts" folder. Everybody has their own taste!

Make sure to check out other custom skins, from which I learned a lot. This skin would be impossible without them and Sports Interactive.

    Great skin!
    Bu i need little help, how i can change fonts in 3d match? Because i can play with regular fonts.They are too thin and irritating flashes.

    1. To bring back club logo there, delete "inbox item.xml" file at: Dark Polish Skin 22\panels\human

    2. By changing values in skin files of panels which include those.

    How do you adjust the size of the logos?
  • safasirin's avatar
    I want club logos on the inbox screen. What should I do?
  • StuartNG's avatar
    Ceyvol, thanks for the reply. Ok so same process as team line-up as mentioned to someone else.

    The second part is a request / plea if the main squad landing page could have an option to appear down the sides, to match the teams home colours. So say in Arsenal case, the border would be red, with white writing. Just an idea. I have seen it on other skins and looks quite decent.
  • Ceyvol's avatar
    Both. Delete two "tactics icon info..." files and rename two "(no pies)" files with the name of deleted ones.

    About main team squad page - you have to be more specific.
  • StuartNG's avatar
    Hey great skin thanks. Can you explain the suitability pies bit. I don’t understand if you just delete out the others, or re-name the ‘no pies’ file. I would prefer to just see player pic and not the pie mess.

    Also any chance of adding club matching club colur scheme to the main team squad page? Many thanks

    Go to: Dark Polish Skin 22\panels\match. There are two specific files there: match score area panel.xml & match score area panel (with team names).xml

    Delete first one and rename second one as first one. That's it.

    About scoreboard:
    Optional scoreboard with full team names is included as well. Find labeled file at: Dark Polish Skin 22\panels\match - and replace its counterpart with it.

    Yes! Finally! Huge fan of your FM21 skin! Keep up the great work!

    Just as a question without knowing the difficulty of it; can you release a skin without attributes?
  • GMBerkut's avatar
    I have no words to say how much I've been waiting for your Skin. Thank you very much for your work!
  • Dave Brooks's avatar
