Football Manager 2018 Skins - FM 2018 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.3

FM 2018 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.3


Skin for FM 2018 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUTSKIN – Dark, Version 1.3 for FM 2018.

Once again, thanks to all FM fans and especially to all of the fantastic FM skinners who contribute a lot to produce the FLUTSkin as it is today since FM 2013.

I think that the bugs (most of them after the SI update) reported or found until now were fixed (except the fade of TV logo since I couldn’t make it work well yet; the role/duty of the other teams in tactics panels also still missing since is a bug from SI) and I tried to include the most of suggestions made by the FM fans.

Released: 17 December, 2017

A special thank you to all great skinners who indirectly contributed to FLUTSKIN and a very 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. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).


IMPORTANT NOTES:
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

How to add Flut Skin in FM18

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

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM18 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.

    Hi vonreichsm: thanks for all of your support and help in the answers. It is not easy to answer everyone indeed. Cheers!!

    Hi nikolaosaek: you can replace the default letters in league stage panel views.xml
    Search for every code font=”fonts/capitals” and delete it.

    Hi lrqvm: Sorry but I can’t help you since that bug not arose in my game.

    Hi perkeleensonni, fero and loxlo: I can’t explain that problem since everything is okay (until now) in my game. Maybe there is some kind of conflict with other skins. Try to clean the cache, keep this skin only in the skins folder and reload the game. I think maybe it will works since Vonreichsm already recommended that and in the loxlo game it works fine now. Regarding the medical centre I didn’t change anything on it. Thus I also don’t know what could be the cause of that bug you have.

    Hi Church on a hill: Thanks. Regarding your questions/issues:
    1. Side panels disappearing off the side of the match - could you explain this? I didn’t understand…
    2. the wheel in the tactics screen not updating when you switch players or roles - yes I noticed that. It only works when we repeat the action; I don’t know why; maybe there is a conflict with the xmls I edited in order to display the player pictures. But if so, I prefer that bug and keep the player pictures on the screen.
    3. Is it possible to make all of the panels for the in game between highlights screen available in each spot?-Yes. I didn’t include it since some of them don’t fit well in the size of the box (the smaller boxes on the bottom left and right). But if you want you can go to match inbetween highlights panel.xml and include the code for the two (home and away match formation are)

    <widget class="match_formation_panel" id="hmtt" file="match formation panel3" team_index="0" read_only="true" title="Tactics">
    <translation id="title" translation_id="230056" type="use" value="Tactics" />
    </widget>

    <widget class="match_formation_panel" id="amtt" file="match formation panel3" team_index="1" read_only="true" title="Tactics">
    <translation id="title" translation_id="230056" type="use" value="Tactics" />
    </widget>

    Put it after the following code:
    <widget class="match_view_selector_panel" file="client_object/client object viewer selector match1" pause_match_on_menu_opening="true" id="sel2" default_item="mazv" minimum_width="1" default_width="-1" priority="3" > <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="objt" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt" />
    </record>

    And also after the following code:
    <widget class="match_view_selector_panel" file="client_object/client object viewer selector match1" pause_match_on_menu_opening="true" id="sel4" default_item="mtst" minimum_width="1" default_width="-1" priority="3" > <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="objt" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt" />
    </record>

    4. Is it possible to differentiate the First team games from the youth team/reserves games. It could be with font, or just make the first team games a bolder color. They kinda blend into the background - could you please put a screenshot illustrating this?
    5. You can change the wheel colours editing the graphics in graphics/icons/custom/role rating/circular. In meantime I changed the position colours.

    hi loxlo. nice to hear.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    This?

  • loxlo's avatar
    vonreichsm,flut,
    i've redownload and it seems to be working perfectly. Great skin nonetheless, keep it up
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    This is the panel I am looking for. I wanna change the team names that have capitals.
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    vonreichsm: In the league table and at the inbox with the leagues the name of the teams turn to capitals with the uptade. I HATE capitals and I wanna change them.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    nikolaosaek: What do you mean? Didn´t understand what you mean with capitals.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    loxlo: i didn´t change anything. It´s the work of flut. My version 1.3 works fine. No bugs and no bug with the tactics screen.
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    Hi flut. Why did you make all the league tables to capitals??? :/ Can you tell me witch palels to search to change them ?
  • loxlo's avatar
    @vonreichsm, what did u do to fix it?
  • loxlo's avatar
    flut having issue with the tactics just like everyone else
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi Flut,

    thanks for working on the skin at the weekend. Nice job.
    perkeleensonni: it works for me:


    fero and perkeleensonni: it works for me:



    Church on a hill: Don´t know what you want.

    Again Flut. Thanks for your work. Skinnmakers have no easy job. Hihi. They work and work and there are guys who annoy the skinmaker. Head up Flut. There are enough people who love your work. Ißm one of them.
  • perkeleensonni's avatar
    Another thing I've noticed, is that my medical centre isn't working. All others screens show up fine, but when I click on the medical centre it just doesn't show up
  • lrqvm's avatar
    ...it freezes in 3d matches when injury or yellow/red card. The only version working is the 1.1

    Hi Flut,
    I think I'm having the same problem as Fero, the tactics view in the team selection view is somehow bugged. Here's a screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/RfCaB
  • Church On A Hill's avatar
    The skin is still having some of the same bugs that the latest FM18 patch fixed. Side panels disappearing off the side of the match and the wheel in the tactics screen not updating when you switch players or roles. Also, is it possible to make all of the panels for the in game between highlights screen available in each spot? I want to put the opposition formation in one of the bottom corner panels, but it's not an option. One more color/font issue. Is it possible to differentiate the First team games from the youth team/reserves games. It could be with font, or just make the first team games a bolder color. They kinda blend into the background.
  • Church On A Hill's avatar
    Love the skin, I only have one issue. On the tactics screen the green and white of the wheel for role suitability blends into the green pitch background. I don't know if it's possible to change the wheel colors. I love the wheel though, the new system is way less intuitive and doesn't look as good. Also, tiny thing it would be nice if the colors for the positions on the tactics screen were a bit more differentiated. There's a lot of green right now.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi bartdude: thanks. In fact it was not easy try to find the bugs (and I don't know if others still persist...).

    Hi troy: in my game that kind of bug didn't appear yet. I think sometimes are related to the changed fonts, however I took a look and I only use 2 different fonts in the skin (bebasneue and MyriadPro-LightCond) and in some specific panels (not in that panel)...Thus I really don't know what can cause it.

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi fero: thanks!! Could you put a screenshot please?
  • fero1907's avatar
    Hi Flute,
    In dark skin, at match preview screen, I only see my players pictures on pitch tactics view. Do you have any suggestions for this issue? (no problem for light one)
    And thank you for your dedication to fm flut skin, I use it for 3 years and never regret it.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Zrnkichi: the bug with mentality is now fixed. The other bug...could you please put a screenshot?
