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

    @Flut: Thanks for Helping ! i change all in Points 1 and 2. Point 3 (The Player Pictures in Tactic Screen . i give you a Screenshot, this is on my Screen. Maybe it is possible to change Player Pictures bigger.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi LLovely: is normal that some people don’t like some changes. Is a question of taste and I understand it. I prefer as it is now. I think is much better. However, if you want to use the version 1.5 you can use it. Also you can try to put the player overview panel.xml and the club overview panel.xml from 1.5 in the 1.6 version.

    Hi magic: I use the metallic logos pack.

    Hi Luke Shaw: regarding your questions
    1. Is due your screen resolution. Please read the comments. Some people are talked about that problem related to your screen resolution. I think some guy said that you should remove the @2x files from graphics/boxes/subsection/standard.
    2. Go to league stage panel views.xml and delete all entries following codes font="fonts/capitals"
    3. In fact, if you increase the player picture in tactics panel, as the different tactics use different space (and the kit, and picture, change the size according that space), it will not be well for all tactics. Thus you should keep the size like it is.

    Hi nikolaosaek: use this

    Hi kfnielsen: Try this

    Hi swainf: thanks for report that bug. I already fixed it.
  • LLovely's avatar
    1.6 looks terrible sorry. It is very nice to Change thinks. BUT the club overview Panel looks just not good and also the new Player profile looks very bad :((((
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!
    After a long try did it work with the stadium background (look at screenshot)! Thanks again mate!

    BTW, what do you use for a logo pack? I ask, because look at the screenshot... the logo is slightly cut off on the left??

  • Luke_Shaw's avatar
    Mr. Flut - i am from Germany.
    Thanks for your work, a good Skin !
    but some Questions = thanks for help !
    i use Flut Skin Dark 1.6
    Fullscreen (2560*1440) + Zoom 125% (because 100% is too small)

    1) in this Parts are some Issues:
    "Scouting" example: 1. Bundesliga Screen (to see the Table, Games of the Playday, Injurieslist....)

    = so, the Result is: in many Parts are Issues with WHITE FIELDS. so, that many Parts of Text not god to see

    2) In the Tabel, the Names of the Clubs are BIG - i think, that is not good, to see this Table - can you Change them to normal Version?

    3) in "Taktik" the PLayer Pictures on the Pitch are very small - can you set them bigger? i thin to see this bigger, is more motivated to see, which player i have set on the Pitch...

    Thanks !

    Hi flut. I change font="fonts/titlebar" to font="fonts/bold" but its not working. The names are still capitals
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    Hi flut again :)
    I notice this on player screen with SS kits something I can move a little?
  • swainf's avatar
    There's no ''experienced" at personal details

  • Magic1111's avatar
    Flut, I really have to apologize ....
    I do not understand the following:
    I use this stadium pack (for example, for the big picture on the club screen):

    This pack has over 9000 stadium images as a .jpg file. The first picture starts there with 600.jpg
    Of course, the pack has its own xml file.
    The problem is, as far as I understand it: All over 9000 images have file names, as I understand, NOT the club ID, but the stadium ID.
    You wrote as an example:
    <record from = "1478" to = "graphics / pictures / team / 1478 / background" />
    The problem is that there is no .tga file with the number 1478 in the pack, because it's just not the Club ID's.

    So I would have to copy the entire folder, and rename all over 9000 .tga files in the Club ID .... impossible.

    Flut, is it possible that you look in the above stadium pack? Or that you upload for me your stadium pack?

    Or do I not understand all this, maybe because of the language? German is my native language.

    Again, sorry sorry sorry.

    Klapco: Go to player overview panel.xml (that one I sent you yesterday) and change the following code (this piece of code starts in the line 477):

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="70" /> [line 480 - increase this value: e.g., 75]

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-40" /> [line 498 – increase the absolute value: e.g., -45]

    Nikolaosaek: you can change that font in titlebar search panel.xml in the line 33 of code:

    <widget class="text" id="sect" font="fonts/titlebar" alignment="left, centre_y,can_scale" size="28" style="bold" multiline="false" auto_size="horizontal" wants_mouse_events="false" dont_give_default_focus="true" colour="secondary">

    Magic: if you do the steps I told you it will work.
    1. Duplicate your stadiums folder (the folder where you have the stadiums with a config with the IDs of the clubs and not of the stadium)
    2. Rename that folder: aastadium
    3. Open the config and change it in order to make each line of code similar to the following (use notepad++ since you can change everything quickly in one or two steps)

    <record from="1478" to="graphics/pictures/team/1478/background"/>
    4. Reload the game .
    5. That’s it.
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    Hi flut, again :p Below there is a picture of Robben. How can I change the capitals on the top , not in the player profile, i've done that.
  • Klapco's avatar
    Hi Flut,now the player's name is not the whole of the jersey !
  • CR7_23's avatar
    Thank you Flut. It worked! ;D
  • Magic1111's avatar
    I looked exactly in my stadium packs, and I`ve download this packs too:

    All these stadium packs have .jpg files inside from 600.jpg to xxx.jpg.

    This must be the ID from the stadium, not from the Club.


  • Magic1111's avatar
    I think I´ve only stadium packs with ID of stadiums, not of clubs. I think that´s my problem?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Magic: For the stadium pictures behind the player picture you should have the right pack with the right config. The config should have the code similar to the following example (this is for FC Porto)

    <record from="1478" to="graphics/pictures/team/1478/background"/>
    Thus, try to look at the configs of your stadiums packs if you have a config with the code similar to that above. If you have it, rename the folder for, for instance, aastadiums.
    If you don’t have it, duplicate your stadiums folder (that one with the ID of clubs and not of the stadiums) and change the config (you can do it easily using notepad++).
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut,
    thanks for replay...but I don´t understand, sorry!

    I use this Background MOD:

    and additionally this MOD:

    Is this the right stadium mod?

    Now you´ve uploaded for me a config.xml file. What should I exactly do?

    Sorry mate.....
  • panzerM's avatar
    just to clarify 'below in load order' means simply below alphabetictally. folder B is below of folder A in load order
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Magic1111: you should have the right stadium pack. You can do the following, if you want (using my config).
    You should duplicate your stadiums folder (the stadium folder with the pics with the id of the club) and place this config in that folder. Of course if you have some pics different from those in the config that pics will not be displayed (and vice-versa). But you always can add new codes in this config.

    Hi Marjandroid: you can choose it in the drop down arrow, on the top right of the attributes table (near the current ability box/value)

    Hi nikolaosaek: go to player personal details1.xml and change
    <!--best position-->
    <widget class="position_label" spec="text,large,bold" id="bpos" size="13" colour="secondary" alignment="centre_x,centre_y,can_scale" display_format="0" font="fonts/capitals_bold">


    <!--best position-->
    <widget class="position_label" spec="text,large,bold" id="bpos" size="13" colour="yellow1" alignment="centre_x,centre_y,can_scale" display_format="0" font="fonts/capitals_bold">


    <!--accomplished position-->
    <widget class="position_label" id="apos" spec="text" size="10" alignment="centre_x,centre_y,can_scale" colour="secondary" style="semi_bold" display_format="0" >

    <!--accomplished position-->
    <widget class="position_label" id="apos" spec="text" size="10" alignment="centre_x,centre_y,can_scale" colour="yellow1" style="semi_bold" display_format="0" >

    Hi Swainf and CR7_23 : use this for fix the pictures cut.

    Swainf: Regarding the name, as I use the square kits if I move the name up it leaves the square. So this is the best position, as you can see in the screenshot of the skin.

    HI torjek: please read the comments. Some people are talked about that problem related to your screen resolution. I think some guy said that you should remove the @2x files from graphics/boxes/subsection/standard.

    Hi kfnielsen, bartdude and yanzhihh928: many thanks for your support as always.

    Kfnielsen: did you tried with other skin? I really believe that problem with the trophy is no related to the skin.
  • panzerM's avatar
    Magic1111 :there is invisible button in top right corner of backkground picture if thats what you are looking for. If not you have to place folder containing current background below in load order of the folder containing picture you want as player background
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    Why do I have in the player overview as a background picture an action photo of each player, and not the stadium picture?
    Screenshot taken from v1.5, that is also the case in the current version 1.6 and older versions. There is no option with the stadium picture.
    I´ve installed the Background Megapack and Mini Stadium Pack.

  • Bartdude's avatar
    Loving the enhancements and new fonts,as always !
  • CR7_23's avatar

    Can anybody help me with this problem? The logo is not completely showed?

    Is there anyboy who knows what's going wrong?

  • kfnielsen's avatar
    Hi flut
    I was wondering why I have two of the same trophies twice on the screenie.
    Is it the skin or my trophies folder that are mess up?(got the latest trophies pack) cheers
  • Marjandroid's avatar
    Mate, I apologize if the issue was already in this topic, but how can I remove the attributes boxes? I would like to have attributes without a box, so that I can set the desired color for the attributes. Thanks in advance.
