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).

    Wonderful, many thanks for your hard work Flut!
  • kfnielsen's avatar
  • vinlando's avatar
    Is there a reason why this tile will reset to 'Plans' every time I go into my own players overview?
  • bronze's avatar
    Do u know why my player image didnt show up?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hy mykal: no. sorry.
  • mykal's avatar
    Is there a way ta get the "BS" selected background ta stick, so yer dont have ta keep re-selecting it on each load up is there? please
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi mykal: ok. Thanks for letting me know.
  • mykal's avatar
    difficult ta capture a screen Flut, the flicker is so random BUT on searching google I'm seeing a number of people complaining about the same issue after a certain update (cant remember which) So I'm guessing "Game issue" rather than your pitch textures.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi mykal: could you please put a screenshot?

    Hi El-tev: you can select the transparency in the backgrouns selector button (BS) in the top right of the menu bar.

    Hi blindhorizon: use these files (place it in panels/competition)

    Regarding the form, you can do it in league stage panel views.xml, deleting the code
    <flags id="Tsof" />

    Hi pottersmad: I suppose this is the last version of the skin for FM19.

    Hi OwidowmakerO: thanks. Regarding your question, try to use the files of the “files for no hidden sidebar” folder.
  • mykal's avatar
    I'm seeing flickering pitch lines when games are on a synthetic pitch, is this a game bug or something ta do with the texture pack? please
  • OwidowmakerO's avatar
    Great skin as always FLUT. Can i ask, i use the menu panel on the left, the colour changes red for my United team but i prefer it stay dark/black all the time. Is there a way to change this?

  • pottersmad's avatar
    Hi Flut anymore updates for this version or is that it untill FM20
  • Blindhorizon86's avatar
    Thank you Flut. Apparently it does not seem to work (table panel in competition/overview still too dark):
    [img][/img] --> how to post images?
    Is there a way to make the left panel of the same opacity of the other panels?
    Beside that, is there a way to remove the recent form column? (the one to the right of the overall points column).

    Thank you again!
  • EL-TEV's avatar
    Hi Flut, thanks for answering. I found out it was because of the screen resolution. But another question, in Flut Skin 1.8 there is a less transparency than earlier versions. I can see the stadium picture, but it is so dark behind the filter. Any suggestions?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi EL-TEV: thanks. Regarding your answer, if you did everything in the right way I don’t know what happens and thus I can’t help you.

    Hi TheFrenchFlo: what is the player picture option you use?

    Hi redemptor: in my game is working well. Thus, sorry but I can’t help you.

    Hi blindhorizon: go to competition overview panel and in line 6, change

    <container class="subsection_box" id="cost">


    <container class="subsection_box" appearance="boxes/subsection/standard/paper94" id="cost">
  • Blindhorizon86's avatar
    Hi Flut, superb work as always. Just one question: how can I change the opacity of the left panel (the table itself) in the overview panel of the league? Thank you!
  • EL-TEV's avatar
    Hi! Great skin as always but one question:
    I have newly innstalled fm19 on a multicom computer and put inn the graphics with backround pictures of when viewing the team screen but theres is only a black backround and the stadium pictures doesent show. Any suggestions? :)
