Football Manager 2020 Skins - FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.6

FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.6

Skin for FM 2020 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUT Skin ("dark" version) for FM20. As usual, the Flut skin is completely full of changes when you compare with the default skin.

In FLUT Skin you can find the instant result option, the background/opacity selector, compatibility of player picture (in player overview panel) with DF11 and Scope facepacks styles, the animated intro match and much more!!!
Many panels were changed or tweaked!!

The Skin pack also 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!!!
3. An alt client object browser file for those who prefer play the game without backgrounds (you just have to place that file in the client_object folder of the skin, overwrite the other one and reload the game (don't forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”)

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel). For that you should search for that kits pack elsewhere since the download link in FMScout is down due copyright issues.

You also can download the stadiums megapack and the citypics released by DAZS8 (thank you, my friend)

NOW the player profile always shows the front and the back kits (even if you don't have the 2d kits for Flutskin). This is a new "creation". It was hard to find a way to make it work but i'm proud with that new stuff and I believe this is a great news for all the Flutskin fans!!!

Beyond the reported bugs fixed these are the main changes in 1.6 version
- Club Overview Panel tweaked (board confidence breakdown included in the drop down arrows)
- Social media panel ("New")
- "New" Team report overview summary (the player faces and the front and the back kits are now displayed)
- "New" Team scout report (the player faces and the front and the back kits are now displayed; new panel included)
- Player Overview panel tweaked (now even if you don't have the 2dkits for FlutSkin all the default front kits with the team badge will be displayed!!!)
- Inbox with pitch panel tweaked (in the team of the week the front and back kits will be displayed)
- Inbox opposition scout report tweaked (front kits included)
- Other tweaks here and there

Main changes in 1.5 version
- Background/opacity selector included
- "New" game processing panel
- "New" manager home panel (the place of some boxes were changed and the managers name were included in the information on the picture)
- Player history panel finally including an overlay in order to be read
- Other panels also included an overlay
- Other tweaks here and there

Changes in 1.4 version (you should note that this version is an update of the 1.3 and not includes great changes)
- Actions bar coloured according the club
- Opacity of many panels changed
- Bugs fixed

Changes in 1.3 version
Definitely the full game released by SI brings lots of work to the people who trying to edit skins.....however, I tried to fix the reported bugs.
- Background selector removed (since when we use it, the background paper covers the 3d pitch in the match screen)
- For those who want to play without backgrounds I included a file in a separate folder (the file is the client object browser.xml) you can put in the client_object folder of the skin (overwriting the original one).
- Many panels are now with a little bit more opacity (there are a few, but just a few of the most used panels, I didn't change. I have to find the responsible xmls and change it, as soon as I can)

Changes in 1.2 version
This version is released mainly in order to fix the bug related to the 3D match that arises with the SI update of the game.
That update also causes an error in the hidden sidebar version. Therefore I had to delete the hidden sidebar option.
Additionally the SI update also causes a problem with the opacity selector (the opacity also is displayed in the 3D match and consequently the pitch got darker as we incresaed the opacity of the panels). Therefore, I also had to delete the opacity option. That problem forced me to change the opacity of some panels in order the text can be read (I know there are some other panels requiring a little bit more opacity...). :(

Thus, summarizing the main changes:
- 3D match fixed
- Hidden sidebar deleted
- Opacity selector option deleted
- Player attributes panel tweaked
- New default players (now I use the ROWAN pictures, slightly tweaked)
- Non player profile tweaked (picture enlarged)
- Other tweaks here and there

Changes in 1.1 version
Beyond the reported bugs fixed, this version (1.1) includes many tweaks (some of them maybe you don't notice :) ) in multiple panels and some "new" panels. The main changes are:

- New background attributes boxes (including new colours)
- New Club Vision
- New Team report overview
- New Team report analyst report
- New (just a few of them) sidebar icons

Once again I would like to thank you to all FM Fans who support my work and also to all skin makers. 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).

How to add Flut Skin in FM20

Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2020flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM20 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2020 Flut Skin dark - Version 1.6 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  4. Hit the Confirm button.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    Hi fifapatrick: try to remove the logos folders one by one and reload the game after each removal. You can find where is the logos that causes that problem.
  • fifapatrick4's avatar
    hey, i get the same bug as some other ppl got.
    i´m having a big uefa logo in front of the kits in the player screen.
    i deleted all logo files, so that shouldn´t cause the problem.
    would appreciate some help

    here is a screenshot:

    Ok, now is clear. Perfect! Thanks you very much ;)
  • Flut's avatar
    Liverpool4ever: sorry but I didn't understand your question...

    z0mb87: if you choose in the drop down arrow on the top right of the attributes panel (you can see the arrow on the right of ability) the option attributes with background boxes, the attributes will be highlighted.
  • z0mb87's avatar
    @Flut, thanks you man for you support. I don't understand this part "If you choose the option with background boxes the attributes will be highlighted", what do you mean? I think already do it.
    I expect that, when I select the various roles of the player, the key attributes are highlighted, but this does not happen with flut skin. I have verified that mechanics with the standard skin, or others, it works correctly. Problably the solution is too easy, but i can't see it. :p Please, enlighten me! :)

    Up image, Flut
    Down image, FM standard

    Can you make so we can see how many staff members we have like the origianl skin. example 11/16 coaches
  • Flut's avatar
    z0mb87 : in fact there is no problem with your game. If you choose the option with background boxes the attributes will be highlighted. In fact only one option can use the highlights.

    SoccerholicVienna: :)

    Hi richbell82: thanks. Regarding your question, in fact in order to have more transparency in the panels, various graphics should be edited and is a hard work.
  • SoccerholicVienna's avatar
    i found it :-)
  • SoccerholicVienna's avatar

    Can someone tell me how I can change the right picture? I found the picture on the left

    Use Flut Skin Dark, currently 1.5

    Thanks a lot!
  • z0mb87's avatar
    Hi @Flut, thanks for your awesome skin and have a nice 2020.
    I have one problem from yesterday. In the player view, i can no longer see the key attributes highlighted. I have already try to reinstall a skin, clear cache, disable-restart-enable the highlight options, but problem persist. Can you help me? :) I play in a full-screen mode and with 1920x1080 resolution.
  • richbell82's avatar
    Hey Flut, just wanted to say super work as always on this skin!!
    just a quick one though. Is it possible to make the boxes more transparent than just choosing to change it through the BS option? I love your skin but would prefer it to be more transparent. Something a little like opz elite skin.
    Happy New Year to you
    and once again huge thanks for bringing this skin!!

    Hi kfnielsen: you just have to delete the non player attributes panel.xml and reload the game.
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    Hi flut
    I have an request
    I want this without the boxes
    I hat the file but deleted by mistake
  • DAZS8's avatar

    You are using the wrong stadium pack.....that is the one from sortitoutsi for a is not set up to work correctly on Flut skin.
    The one I have made is however, I recommend installing it of course.
    It is set u to work alongside flut skin primarily.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Zashqautch: please show me the config of the folder where is that stadium picture.
  • Zashquatch's avatar
    Guessing he got the same problem as me: - and if i remove stadium the UEFA logo comes up
  • Flut's avatar
    Chrisboy: please put a screenshot of your problem.
  • Chrisbhoy88's avatar
    Hi flut. I dont understand what you mean by 'left logos in logos folder' ?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Chrisbhoy: remove all the left logos you have in your logos folder.
  • Chrisbhoy88's avatar
    Hi Flut, is there a way to get rid of the UEFA badge in front of the kits on player profile screen ?
  • Frutsel's avatar
    Hi Flut, Found the problem. I had a save game issue as well. It seems the update changed the folders where it goes to. At first it all went through: Documents - Sports Interactive - etc etc, Now it goes drive - user - (user Name) - Sports interactive etc etc. I opened the skin folder and put the Flut folders into it and it works. Same as for my save games.

    For the help

  • Chrisbhoy88's avatar
    hi flut sorry I just found it there, it actually told me line numbers along the bottom edge of the notepad on the grey edge, and it also worked deleting them and changing colour codes after removing all the other ones.

    thank you so much!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Chrisboy: download the notepad++, is free.
  • Chrisbhoy88's avatar
    hi flut, I cant see line numbers when I open the .xml file with notepad ?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Mwaylen: as I already said in my PM to you, the skin doesn't have that background. You should look inside your graphics folders.

    Hi Frutsel: look inside the skin folder; if there is another folder with the smkin name, is that one you should place in the skins folder of the game.

    Hi Chrisbhoy: try the following: delete all the code lines from 443-483 (in the settings.xml). After that, change the values in the code

    <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="146" green="82" blue="143"/>
    <colour name="low attribute background" red="247" green="121" blue="121"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="245" green="245" blue="85"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="157" green="217" blue="121" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="83" green="249" blue="83" />

    exit the game, reload it and don't forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”.
