Football Manager 2019 Skins - FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.4

FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.4

Skin for FM 2019 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUTSKIN – Dark Version 1.4 for FM 2019.

This skin is compatible with cutout, DF11 and scope facepacks

This is the FlutSkin for FM19. I tried to keep it very similar to the last version of Flutskin for FM18. Thus, I will not present you all changes regarding the default skin for FM19. If you know FlutsKin for FM18 (version 2.1), you also know what you can find in this skin for FM19. If you don't know it yet, try it. I think you will not be disappointed.

The Skin pack includes:
1. “Round country flags”, “round continents logos” and default logos specially made in metallic style by brian-q from sourtitoutsi. Those graphics will be displayed in the title bar.
2. Background maps for confederations, also made by brian-q. Thank you brian by your great work and for your collaboration!!!
3. A pack with pitch textures for 3D match, edited by myself
4. A mod for regular sidebar (not hidden sidebar)
5. A mod for regular sidebar, coloured according the club colour

Once again, thanks to all FM fans (your suggestions keep me trying to make the skin better) and especially to all the fantastic FM skinners whose creativity contributes a lot to produce the FLUTSkin as it is today since FM 2013. Thank you all!!

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.4 are in:
- Pre match briefing panel
- Several inbox panels (e.g., some player reports, pre match briefing reminder, transfer person mini profile panel,…)
- Player overview panel (Flut club colour option as player picture background added; some small tweaks)
- New tactics squad view
- Match tactics
- Home manager panel tweaked (new biography tab included, “new” confidence board and “new” training panel)
- Scouting centre card tweaked

Besides fixed bugs and tweaks here and there, the major Changes in FlutSkin dark 1.3 are in:
- Club overview panel (confidence information panel changed)
- Match team talk (new information included)
- Titlebar (manager change button included)
- Tactics panel ("new" pitch)

Major Changes in FlutSkin dark 1.2
- Training overview panel (new panels added)
- Tactics panel (now including the player pics)
- Transparent sidebar
- Non player comparison (adjusted for DF11)

The main changes in 1.1 are:
- Match full preview (save buttons included)
- Inbox press conference panels
- Drop down arrow in the titlebar included (in the left, near the picture)
- Many tweaks in inbox panels and some other tweaks in other panels
- Match preview panel (since some information in the tabbed regarding team analysis stop work after the SI updated, I have to cahnge it)

Changes in updated version.
- Bug regarding contract offer fixed
- Bug regarding the "inbox briefing reminder panel" fixed
- Files for no hidden (default) sidebar included (please read the read me file in order to know how install it)

Released: 16 december, 2018

A special thank you to PATRES10 from fmslovakia 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, 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 read me file in order to install the skin, the pitch textures addon and the regular and coloured sidebar. I also 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 - SEASON 2018/19 - 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

If you want to download the citypics only, DAZS8 released the updated pack HERE

How to add Flut Skin in FM19

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

    I also forgot to ask, how do I make the league table font lower case again? I tried looking through previous comments but couldn't find the answer.

    Hi Flut.

    I've switched to the sidebar you provided for Klapco, but was wondering how I can make the sidebar background a solid black instead of it being transparent?
  • AtlasFR's avatar
    Sorry Flut but I just realized another problem that I found.

    As you can see on the screenshot, for some staff members (whether mine or not), this panel does not indicate the employment of the person in question.
    A bit random as my first problem. :/
  • AtlasFR's avatar
    Thanks for the answer but, even with the modification, I got still the same problem for some players (about 7-8 players for my A team). The other players don't have that problem. :/

    It's weird because I really have no problem with 1.3. Only 1.4 ...

    Hi jeff44: Go to league stage panel views.xml and delete the following code (line 482)

    <record id="Tsof" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/papervertdivider" />

    Hi Tobe: yes. Do it as ingey1968 referred.

    Hi Bartdude: thanks!! I really appreciate your positive feedback and support!!

    Hi master frank: thanks and…sorry, but I will not edit the skin for other screen resolutions.

    Hi Klapco: ok. Great!!

    Hi Atlas: try the following: open player overview panel.xml and in the line number 2063, change

    <container class="client_object_viewer_selector_panel" file="client object viewer selector1" id="cosB" save_session_state="true" default_width="-1" priority="1">


    <container class="client_object_viewer_selector_panel" file="client object viewer selector1" id="cos1" save_session_state="true" default_width="-1" priority="1">

    Hi Flut !
    Since the new update (1.4), I have an issue with the player panel.

    By default, in the profile of a player, the table reserved for "positions" of the player goes into "projects" of the player. I even put "posts" every time, but, after a few visits in profile, it goes back to "projects".
    ( ).

    Would there be a way to lock the "positions" panel in xml files to no longer have this problem?

    Thanks in advance !
