    Released: 13 January, 2018

    A special thank you to PATRES10 for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin).

    As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, this year, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.

    You can do so by clicking the button down below

    Resolution requirements:
    This skin was made to work properly in 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).

    In this pack I included a TUTORIAL PDF with instructions regarding the structure of your Graphics folder in order to view the citypics, the kits and the competition logos in player details and in title bar.

    You can download the 2D kits for displayed in player overview panel and titlebar HERE

    You also can download the citypics (and much more…) in the Backgrounds Superpack made by DAZS8 and VULRAK (with some contribution from myself and other FM Fans), HERE

    For those one who experience crashes during the match (for example, when a yellow card is shown) I included in the pack an alt. folder with a file (match in between highlights.xml). That xml is from FlutSkin 1.1 and works well in this version. You just have to put it in FlutSkin/panels/match and overwrite the file already in that folder. Sorry but although I know that the bug responsible for the crashes is in the match in between highlights xml, I couldn’t found a way to fix it.

    How to add Flut Skin in FM18

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

    Place the "fm2018flutskin_light" folder here:
    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins

    1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
    2. Start FM18 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
    3. You should see FM 2018 Flut Skin light - Version 1.5 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
    4. Hit the Confirm button.

    Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

      Thank you Flut ! This is just the best skin and also thanks for the light version . Just thank you ,
    • Flut's avatar
      Thanks Dexter!!!

      Hi Flut.
      Many thanks for the updated skin. Both the new in between match highlights screen and the screen that shows prospective new tutors are perfect.
    • ooshosboshe's avatar
      Hi Flut,

      Yes that was the problem! Thanks again!!
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi oosh: the error meaning is something wrong in the code. Look at your code. A > is missing in the end of excellent attribute code line. If you fiz that, I think everything will work well.
    • ooshosboshe's avatar
      Hi Flut,

      In previous version you change this line in the settings:

      <!-- background attribute box colours Flut 17 v1 -->
      <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="210" green="210" blue="210"/>
      <colour name="low attribute background" red="241" green="159" blue="193"/>
      <colour name="normal attribute background" red="140" green="193" blue="242"/>
      <colour name="good attribute background" red="151" green="191" blue="13" />
      <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="19" green="93" blue="19" /

      These are the colours I normally have them set as. But as you see in the picture below the "excellent" attribute should be dark green but its dark blue.

      I only ask if there is a new way to change the colours beacuse you mentioned in the 1.4 version there is a '“New” Player Attributes panel'

      Also, i'm not sure if its a related problem or not, but I get this error message every time I empty cache and reload the skin:
    • Flut's avatar
      Ho oosh: what do you mean with "dark blue?" the boxes are not blue...and yes you can change it as in the other versions, in the settings.xml (choose the active code since there are some code not active and that can make the thins a little bit confuse when we go changing the values)
    • ooshosboshe's avatar
      Hi Flut,

      This is the first time I've downloaded 1.4. I tried changing the colour of the attribute background boxes the normal way I do it, but the colour for the high attribute stays dark blue as opposed to what I changed it to. Is there a new way to change the colours?
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi LLovely: yes. I will update it soon. However I couldn't solve that problem that arise in some computers (in my game everything is working well). Thus I will include that xml I put the link (from 1.1 version) in my last comment, for those who experiment crashes in the situation reported by you. If you use it the game works well with 1.4 and also 1.5 when I release it..

      Hi LCB: player profile details3 is in panels/custom folder.
    • LCB's avatar
      Hey Flut, thanks for the answer but i don't find de files. Can you help me?
    • LLovely's avatar
      Hey Flut , will there be a new uptade ? If so I will wait for it and hope it will work again because i love your skins,
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi LLovely: in fact it seems there is some games crashing in that situation. It seems that the problem is related to the match in between highlights panel.xml.

      I couldn't found the responsible code instead lots of tests. Thus the solution is replace that xml by the same from the 1.1 version.
      Here is (overwrite the other one)!at1wCbQI!ZdUOX0DN5_Ug7_j5BMkMrE1kSQLeCbk1ZAXSkwfTZTE
    • LLovely's avatar
      My game crashes idk why... Has anyone the 1.1 version ? this version worked for me.. Link anyone ?
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi LCB: you should go to player profile details3 and increase the value of alignment="all" inset="0" />

      <widget id="cKit" class="kit_icon" scale_picture="true" kit_zoom_level="2" priority="1">
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="1"/>
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="65" />

      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" />
      <record id="object_property">
      <list id="get_properties">
      <integer id="get_property" value="Pers" />
      <integer id="set_property" value="objt" />

      After, go to kit_icon.xml and change the size in the following code (for the name).

      <widget class="label" id="bNAM" size="11" alignment="top, centre_y,

      Finally, you can adjust the size of kit number changing the values of (try with the try and error method in order to adjust it as you wish).

      <widget class="picture" id="bNUM" image_alignment="centre">
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="-5,0,0,0" />

      Hi geoffrey: in FM18 we can't do it.
    • LCB's avatar
      Hi Flut. How can I do to reduce slightly the size of this kit and consequently the size of the name and number?

      Bonjour comment changer de tableau des scores en plein match
    • JL's avatar
      Did anyone know why my fm2018 mac appears shading after installing the skin?
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi Doddo: maybe during the next week, but I don't know yet...
    • Doddo04's avatar
      Good news flut when will you Release the new Version?
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi Doddo: thanks!! The new version will have some "new" panels and many tweaks. And yes, I changed the dressing room picture and the tunnel picture (of course is according my taste but each one can easily change it if doesn't like it).
    • Doddo04's avatar
      Hi Flut great skin !
      Is a update with new higlights on the way? Can you in the next version put in that we can change pictures from the dressingroom like in andromeda skin ?
      cheers Doddo
    • Roda JC Kerkrade's avatar
      Perfect mate thank you.

      Changed top inset to 35 and vertical to 30. Looks much better now!
    • Flut's avatar
      Hi Roda: you can do it in player profile details3.xml changing the values in the following code:

      <widget class="picture" id="prop" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="centre_x">
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="3"/>
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="0"/>
      <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="15" />
      <record id="object_property">
      <list id="get_properties">
      <!--Facegen data request-->
      <record get_property="fcgn" />
      <!--Fake name request-->
      <record get_property="Pfke" />
      <record get_property="prpc" set_property="valu" />

      If you incresae the value of vertical inset you reduce the picture. After that you just have to align the picture with the top inset.
