Football Manager 2019 Skins - FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.9

FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.9

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

This is the last version of the FLUTSKIN for FM19. I would like to thank all of the FM fans who support my work with words of encouragement and specially those who rewarded the work I produced through a donation. I really appreciated it. I also thanks all the fantastic FM skinners whose creativity contributes a lot to produce the FLUTSkin as it is today since FM 2013. Thank you all!!

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!!!

In this version I do not include the pack for regular sidebar (not hidden sidebar) and for regular sidebar, coloured according the club colour. However, you can use it from the 1.8 version.

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).

You can download the 2D kits - SEASON 2018/19 - for displayed in player overview panel and titlebar HERE

You can download the 2D kits - SEASON 2019/20 - 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 found ALL in skins_fmf\comp editor\format\database

    anyway, now let's move on to fm20 but after studying and learning something, when I saw the structure of the flut skin never use it again unless you rewrite it from scratch, it seems for 2010 and rearranged cause very poor perfomance
  • knipser666's avatar
    Hello Flut Please Re-up the download link for booth Fm19 skins.
    Can someone Tell my why can't See the Freiburg Stadium pic?
  • rodimus's avatar
    can somebody upload the "no hidden sidebar" files or the previous version 1.8 ? the link on page 4 is broken. thanks a lot.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi all. First of all, thanks to all the people who are trying to answer the all questions asked. I apologize, but I don't have time to think on them. Also, as the new FM is almost released, probably I will not answer any more questions. Thanks again for the support you have provided.
    See you (I hope) at FM20 !!
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    Thanks for your answer.
    I know of players with more than one nationalities.
    That`s not the point here.
    I mean the combination of that two information (city, country) on the main overview page is not good, meaning "Yashalta - Deutschland"
    It has to be "City - Country OF CITY" or just one thing of each.
    Besides, that whole block is doubled (see my two green marker-squares down below in my previous post). One would be enough.
    I know its somewhere else in the coding, it`s on the details page. There`s the correct info.

    The problem is that there are two different infos meshed up in one block in main overview, and that twice!!!
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @Jürgen Hartmann: He plays for Germany via German nationality even though he was born in Russia, which is why the Germany flag is listed there. That's more down to the coding in the game itself.

    If you look at players in the game that have a choice of which country to play for, the flag can change once they get their first international cap, depending on which nation they choose.
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    Is it possible to correct the "Land of Birth" localization (Flag) in player overview?
    Because in the details it shows the correct information City (->correct Land)
    Please take a look here:

    Here, in this example, the city where he was born is in Russia, not Germany.

    Maybe you can gather that information from that detailed screen into the main overview?

    Thanks in advance mate!!
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    Thanks, after the most recent update of "FM19 Transfers & Data Update Packs by pr0 + FMTU" it`s gone!
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @Jürgen Hartmann: You would have to use the in-game editor (purchase from Steam), or I believe you can also use FM Scout Editor to change the club name on an existing save.
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    @someone who likes to help people
    How can I change the short names of a club in the list in an existing savegame?
    It should be "RasenBallsport Leipzig" (as in the full description) but now after several new databasefiles loaded, it says "RB Lipsia"
    I don`t know.
    Look here:

    Thanks in advance to the helper!
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @Flut: How can I change the size of the font in the search bar at the top? I need to reduce the size so I can see the unique ID's.
  • Carlito_85's avatar

    1. Create a new folder called "Stadium" in the following directory

    Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2019/Graphics/Backgrounds

    (If you don't have a backgrounds folder, create one in your graphics folder)

    2. Copy the config file from your original stadium folder and paste it in the new one

    3. Open the config file in Notepad or Notepad++ and use the Edit > Replace option in Notepad (Search > Replace in Notepad++) to change /stadium"/> to /background"/> at the end of each line of code by using the replace all function. Example below:

    <record from="136149" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/136149/stadium"/>
    <record from="136149" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/136149/background"/>

    Save the file and start adding your 2nd images to the new folder. Reload the skin for them to show up.

    Hi Flut,
    i changed the skin a bit because with many clubs it's unusable (match club color), or change for other but this is the best panel skin
    now i don't know how to change colors for:
    in players profile

    in main club, with sidebar remain match club secondary

    Medical centre

    in other clubs

    Use icon only NO HIDDEN, ty in advance
  • David1uk's avatar
    Great skin flut
    Just one thing how do I have the sidebar that doesn't hide
  • jumy's avatar
    see the point 2/2:
    <record from="FILE_NAME" to="graphics/pictures/stadium/ID/background"/>
    when you download a stadium pack, check out his config.xml, lets stand NAME and ID but look at the rest
    send me a PM and if possible i make config.xml for you

    I think you have the key to my problem but I can't understand your explanation below. I'm pretty new with this.

    Could you (or anyone) explain step by step how to solve this? Thanks in advance:

  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    Hi Flut, is it possible to change the red background of the results permanently to blue? See here:
