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).

    Hello folks, has anyone an idea why I have lost during my game the option to take a look at the japanese clubs? Now I can only view the players, the squad.
    But the main overview of the clubs is gone...
    I don`t know where the problem lies...see here:
    (only affects "my" Japan in my savegame)

    Thanks in advance to anyone who might help!

    Hey guys, I have a strange problem here:
    There are entries in tranfsers-history of various topstar players, that they have fransfered to a little mickey-mouse-club in the middle of nowhere, for €0 with 0 games played. Look here:

    I think that error might have occured, becaused I saved and I had not enough space left on my Harddisk. The game told me it was unable to save. But I think this is somehow related to that problem. Maybe someone of you guys out there has experienced the same odd thing...
    Thanks in advance mates!

    Hi FBD44: go to the settings of the skin and change the colours in this piece of code

    <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="227" green="178" blue="110"/>
    <colour name="low attribute background" red="246" green="42" blue="42"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="255" green="156" blue="0"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="15" green="158" blue="15" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="20" green="247" blue="28" />

    after the changes reload the game.
  • FBD44's avatar
    I wrote wrong in my previous comment. I want player attributes to have a green background of 11-15, and a background of 16-20 to be dark green. I'm using Google translate, sorry
  • FBD44's avatar
    Player features background 11-15 green, 16-20 dark green, how can I do it in reverse?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Alvios: thanks. Regarding your question, please read my comments. I already put the link for the files.
  • Alvios's avatar
    Nice work m8, but for the no hidden sidebar?
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    Don`t worry about it Flut, just an idea of improvement.
    Thanks for your affort!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Jürgen Hartmann : unfortunately I tried a lot to find the code responsible for that line but without success....
  • Jürgen Hartmann's avatar
    My mate Flut, is it possible to centre the prosition of the headline in cups&competitions for example "1.Round" see here:

    I mean especially in CL "Group A" etc.
    In all cups and competitions?

    Thanks in advance mate!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Klapco: yes. This happens since I play with the square version of the kits and the size and the place of the fonts should be there in order to be inside the square. However, if you can, you can adjust the size and the place of the kit name in panels/generic/kit icon14
  • Klapco's avatar
    Hi Flut: The top jersey covers the name of the bottom, as I see in others the whole name is read
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Klpco: what is the problem with the name? It seems okay for me.
