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

FM 2019 FLUT skin light - 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.

The "major" changes (in fact I think the changes are minor) of FlutSkin 1.9 are:
- Target list panel

  • Contract expiring player/non player list (tweaked)
  • Match post match analysis (rating and player popup included)
- Tactics opposition instructions panel and match tactics chalkboard1 (xmls) (bug solved)

- Add manager profile (tweaked)
- Inbox welcome (tweaked)
- Non player profile (name tweaked; nation logo included)
- League tables (non-capitalized club names)
- Club overview panel (new results panel; new key employees panel; new information panel and new training panel included in the drop down arrows; statistics panel tweaked)
- Home manager (new picture option included)
- Manager Profile (tweaked)
- Match titlebar (competition logo included; club names with bigger space)

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.4 are in:

- Match team talk (new information included)
- Titlebar (manager change button included)
- Tactics panel ("new" pitch)

Thus, this skin version has the same changes as the Dark version 1.1. However, this version of Light Skin have additional changes (since almost all panels were edited). The major are:
- Training overview panel (new panels added)
- Tactics panel (now including the player pics)
- Transparent sidebar
- Non player comparison (adjusted for DF11)

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

    Hi panzerM: sorry but I didn't understand what you are asking for. In your images, the left one is a dressing room I did (I supose last year) for match team talk panel; the right one is the default (I use it in flutskin) which change according the club you play...Could you please explain a little bit more and show me where you saw it (sorry but I didn't understand what is YT, too).
  • panzerM's avatar
    Howdy Flut!
    Is it possible to replace 'FLUT skin' standard dressing room background picture to more immersive IMO(changes every time you change a club) FM start screen background. (I've notced this on YT vid with some other custom skin and it looked good)

    Hi morpheusz24: Thanks for your support and also for the reported bugs. Regarding those bugs:

    1. (little nation flag)
    Go to player overview panel.xml and change
    <widget class="nation_button" id="natH" alignment="centre" icon_alignment="left,top" dspf="4">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="272"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="56"/>

    <widget class="nation_button" id="natH" alignment="centre" icon_alignment="left,top" dspf="4">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="272"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="41"/>

    2. (the fonts disappear)
    Yes, we must return to “player” and go, again, to “positions”.
    However, I think this is a bug of the game since I tried with the default skin and the same occurs. I don’t know how to solve it.

    3. (capitalized fonts)
    Go to press conference response selector panel.xml and, in line 31 delete the code
    <flags id="font" value="capitals_bold"/>

    Hi Flut,
    first: thanks for your great work, I use your skins since FM13!
    Here are some bugs in your skin, which I have seen in both, dark and light.
    Thanks again and please continue!!!

    xi3igax: you should use the files from the folder named “files for no hidden sidebar”

    Hi nunurs: thanks. Regarding your answer, the skin already have the instant button from the first version.
    Concerning stadiums after create the stadiums pack you should create a config file. That config should have all the lines with the code similar to that one (but in each code you should put the code of each one of the clubs – for example 1478 is the code for FC Porto)
  • xi3igax's avatar
    I can't seem to find the option to keep the sidebar shown. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  • nunurs's avatar
    Hi, thanks for this mazing skin !
    Do you plan to add an instant result button in a future update ?
    For the stadium background behind the player picture, I dl a stadium pack background but in which file I have to insert "<record from="1478" to="graphics/pictures/team/1478/background"/>"

    Thanks !
  • pmpou1's avatar
    Thank You...!!!
    The best!!!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi pmpou: I found the bug. Go to match title bar score highlight frame viewer.xml and change

    <container class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/custom/match/scoreboard/container/paper">

    <container class="bordered_box" >

    There are two codes (line 9 and line 96; in the line 96, change by

    <container class="bordered_box" red_replacement="blue 300">
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi pmpou: regarding the first bug. You are playing with the zoom, am I right? You should delete all the files @2x in the following folder:
    \Football Manager 2019\skins\fm2019flutskin_dark\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\numbers\large

    You also can resize that files for 220x160 (they are too large now and I forgot to delete it or resize it).

    Regarding the second one: what is that panel?

    Hi panzerM: I will try to fix that bug. However I only can do it when my game will be in the end of the season since I suppose that panel is showed only in the end of a season. Am I right?

    Thanks Bartolone!!!

    (So quiet in here...)

  • Flut's avatar
    Thanks Mackboss!!

    Tobe: please read the thread. I think I already answered that question.
  • Tobe's avatar
    How do I get the stadiums in the player face box?
  • MackbossFM's avatar
    Thank You...!!!
    Great Skin...

    Cheers !!!

    thanks flut for the best skin for fm!!!

    HI all: sorry but I am very busy. So, from now on I will not answer your questions not related to bugs or requests to next versions (the issues related to your personal taste I will not answer. Sorry),
  • filbert's avatar
    Edit: Forget that - just realised the pop-up is coming from Genie Scout!
  • filbert's avatar
    One other minor irritation - I am getting random player profile pop-ups - see screenshot:

    In this case, you can see it has stretched across to my second monitor. the player has nothing to do with my club nor have I clicked on him - the pop-up just appeared out of nowhere. I have turned off profile pop-ups on hover in the settings but it keeps happening. I have done the usual clear cache/reload skin etc but it comes back. It doesn't seem to happen with other skins.
  • filbert's avatar
    Love this skin, many thanks for producing it. Quick issue though, I have jiggled the match info panes a little bit so I have the Facilities one showing but it never seems to show the city picture. I have downloaded the city pics pack and they show on the city info page, just not in this pane. Do I need a mini city pics pack or something?
  • Bandes's avatar
    @flut I would like to change the color of the page from white to black you understand me
