FM 2015 Skins - FM 2015 FLUT DARK skin v2.7
FM 2015 FLUT skin DARK VERSION v.2.7 [Released 25.07.2015]

Skin for FM 2015 (1920x1080).

I'm pleased to present you the version 2.7 of FM FLUTSkin - Dark Version for FM 15.

A special thanks to all of FM fans and FM skinners that made possible to make the FLUTSkin since FM 2013.

This skin was made to work properly in 1920x1080 Full Window. So, some panels don’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).

In this version I included a version for DF11 player pics style

This skin includes lots of small changes and a NEW PLAYER OVERVIEW PANEL

In this pack I included a TUTORIAL with the instructions for structure your Graphics folder of the game in order to view the citypics, the country locator, the kits and the competition logos in player details and in titlebar

I also included a folder named “Flags” with the country locators (read the tutorial in order to know where you should put that folder)

You can download the citypics MEGAPACK 2.0 HERE and/or lots of country packs HERE


Installation Instructions

Step 1

Download the skin and extract the files (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Step 2

Move the folders “fm2015flutskindark" and “fm2015flutskindark_df11" into your skins folder:

Win Vista/7/8: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/skins

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

Step 3

Start the game and go to Preferences screen and Interface tab.
You should see "FM 2015 FLUT skin – Dark Version 2.6” and "FM 2015 FLUT skin – Dark Version DF11 2.6” as options in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
Choose the skin.
Hit the Confirm button.

    Hi Doddo04 and telthegooner

    You just have to go to client object browser.xml (in the panels folder) and change the code:
    <widget class="picture" file="backgrounds/default" id="lggg">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="lggg" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="pict" />

    by this one

    <widget class="background" file="backgrounds/default" id="bgnd">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="bgnd" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="file" />

  • telthegooner's avatar
    Great skin. Only thing I would love to see implemented is the option to use changeable backgrounds. I have hundreds of differnt backgrounds for players/teams. Is this hard to do yourself?

    Hi shiranughie

    No. Unfortunately, for this version I don't, and a don't plan to do it.
  • shiranughie's avatar
    Hello Flut, do you have the 1366x768 version of this?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi TaroMisaki
    Thanks ;-)
    You just have to download a pack with FMC stadiums and put it in the graphics folder of the game (not the skin).

  • TaroMisaki's avatar
    First of all, thanks for that amazing skin Flut! It's the first time I use a custom skin and I don't know how to include the little stadium pics into the skin?

    Hi Flut

    I've tried but it will not. Change file if you can send me the link to download?

    These values:

    <colour name="low attribute" red="100" green="100" blue="100" alpha="140"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute" red="97" green="122" blue="184" alpha="200"/>
    <colour name="good attribute" red="30" green="64" blue="155" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute" red="211" green="49" blue="41" />

    Hi davilafran

    I understood what you want. In fact, in general, the boxes are now more transparent (maybe the background I use could transmit the wrong idea).

    Here is the link. Tell me if it is as you want to.


    Hi viadaboss

    If you want to change the background boxes of the attributes, you can edit it in the settings of the skin.


    <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="210" green="210" blue="210"/>
    <colour name="low attribute background" red="216" green="157" blue="157"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="94" green="149" blue="183"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="53" green="148" blue="82" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="240" green="138" blue="35" />

    and change the values of red, green and blue

    Thanks for your reply Flut.

    Sure a lot of people may welcome a new upgraded version as tastes are quite diverse among the community. But looking at your screenshots... the new panels seem to have increased opacity compared to the ones you have already released. Am I wrong?

    I wanted to make the boxes more transparent in order to highlight the background. Not the opposite. Does this new version slightly modified that you have get this effect or it goes the other way round?

    Thanks again. Cheers.
  • vladaboss's avatar
    How to change the color attributes? :)
  • joshleedsfan's avatar
    It's a good concept, but in practice it relies on the user being highly IT savvy, which a lot of FM players like myself aren't
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi davilafran
    In almost all the panels, the transparency could be increased in the graphics (not in the xml). However there are lots of graphics to edit. I already did an update for my own use. Since there are only small changes (namely in the human profile panel) in that "version" - the boxes graphics are the major change - I thought that not justify a new upload. However, if you want, I can send you the "new" graphics folder, or, if you think that justify to release as a new version I, also, can do it....
    Here are a few screenshots:

    Hi! Thanks for your skin!

    How could I increase panel boxes transparency a little?

    I changed the paper.png files transparency with no luck. Is this transparency applied on xml files?

    thanks for your help.
  • Flut's avatar

    Thanks. I already fixed it.
  • lolochan's avatar
    Very good job....

    But there is some problem at the "Schedule" page, the "Past Meetings" icon is missing.

    It's inconvenient to see the head to head history. Hope you can fix it at next version!

    Sorry but I don't know how to help you since I (almost) never play with instant result.
  • mattbest1986's avatar
    Using this Skin but when i use 'instant result' AI (Assistant Man) it never makes any subs? I've checked all setting to ensure that the assistant is set to use subs.
  • Flut's avatar
    I changed the link.
    I think now it works.
