Football Manager 2020 Skins - FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.5

FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.5

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”)
4. An alt club overview panel with the panels displayed in a different place (you just have to place the club overview panel.xml file in the club 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)

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

Here are some screenshots of this version

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 1.5 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.

    I can not get to put picture here. but what I mean is that the version I downloaded was flut1.5 and everything was normal, until at least it changed to flut1.1. On my FM is written version flut1.5, but the layouts are in version 1.1 as you mentioned in the cover description. Why my Fm20 is flut1.5 but in the game the Pictures like flut1.1?

    rodrigoalonso: as I said before I need to see a screenshot since, I'm sorry but I raelly didn't understand the question.

    kia: please read my last comment/answer to aktham

    einherjer: as I showed in the screenshots I put, in my game everything is oaky. Thus, sorry but I don't know how to help you. Maybe there is a conflict with other skin you have. Try to clear the cache, keep this skin only in the skins folder, exit the game and reload it (don’t forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”).

    donpablo: as you can see everything is okay in my game. Please read the answer I gave above, to einherjer.
  • donpablo's avatar
    Here is the problem. It's not the full name.
    If you could put this think down on the screen how was in FM 16 it would be great.
  • einherjer83's avatar
    I have DL the skin again but the "overview" in the last picture you posted including u21 players, foreign players etc in the league/Cup registration is still missing. Could you upload the panel again, and I'll try one more time.

  • kia's avatar
    As someone mentioned before but you didnt reply:transfers screen is not working in "any league">transfers>transfers. Someone mentioned already you can`t see youth intake of the league,just jave to add that you can`t see any transfers. You have to go manually to clubs transfer history to see any transfers. I`m not 100% sure (im on season 2) so i can be wrong but as I remember first season was no such an issue,it happened only in season 2

    I don't get to put t-shirts next face like the first picture this page. Before, I got it. Only show me the face. Why?
  • Flut's avatar

    1. you can edit it in the settings.xml in the following code (don’t forget exit the game and reload it; don’t forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”)
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="245" green="245" blue="85"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="157" green="217" blue="121" />
    2. regarding the lines in club overview panel go to person snapshot club overview9 and change
    <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" layout="-1,1,18,20" alignment="top" offset="0" gap="0" />


    <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" layout="-1, 18,20" alignment="top" offset="0" gap="0" />

    Delete (line 40)
    <widget class="picture" file="dividers/standard/horizontal/line" />

    thanks. Regarding the problem you report, please put screenshots showing the problem, since I didn’t understand.

    Thanks!! Regarding your problem, sorry but I didn’t understand. Could you please put a screenshot?

    I also forgot to ask, how can I change attribute numbers 6-10 from yellow to orange, and 11-15 from green to yellow?
  • donpablo's avatar
    I am a fan of this skin since FM16 for the important role that the pictures have with the players creating a chemistry between me and the game.
    One thing that does not work is that in the game buffer in the 3d version the display in which the player who appears or takes the yellow / red card or the exchanges of players does not appear next to the picture the full name of the player.
  • einherjer83's avatar
    I'm missing the panel from the last picture you posted of the registration

    Hi Flut,
    The first time I'd like to say thank you so muche, because I love your skin, I only use FlutSkin, but the last night I stayed sad because my skin change and didn't back the normal skin. I usually the first photo this page with uniform of soccer, now only shows the face of soccer and without uniforme like the first photo, i dont like this. Can you Help me pleaseeeee
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    Hi Flut.

    In the club overview page, how can I lower the really thin line that's just above the names of the manager and players in the key employees section?
  • Flut's avatar
    einherjer: Everything is okay as you can see in these screenshots

    Everything is oaky as you can see in this screenshot (the only thing you don’t have in your skin version is the dark overlay since I only included it for the next version of the skin)

    Diego27: Sorry I didn’t understand. Could you please put a screenshot of the problem?

    zabak: I will release the update soon in order all of you can use the skin with the reported bugs fixed.

    4mil: thanks.
    1) Is now fixed
    2) In my game is okay. There is a scrollbar.
  • 4mil's avatar
    Hi Flut,
    Thanks for fixing the opacity in the player history screen.
    Two things I still noticed:

    1) The screen that appears after pushing the instant result button misses the club names and the score. You can only see the players who scored or got a card.

    2) When checking transferactivity in the club visions section, there isn't a scrollbar. When you have a lot of transfers, you can only see the reactions on the transfers that are on the top of the screen.

    Thanks again for the skin and I hope my feedback can help you making the skin even better.
  • einherjer83's avatar
    Earlier there was a list in the registration section where you could see the rules for the tournament )'(number of foreign players, number of U21-players etc), but i cant find that panel now.

  • Aktham Shraiba's avatar
    Hi Flut
    I have problem that I can't see any player when I check youth intake....
    Thank you
  • Diego27's avatar
    Hey Flut,
    your Skin works perfect but I can´t edit the Screen Flow, there´s no option for editing, it´s all grey and I can´t click on something.
  • zabak's avatar
    Do you mind that your skin with no problem release again for me?
    I have already downloaded this file and problem again.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi zabak: that panel is okay in my game. I don't remember if I fixed it before or after the last release. However it will be fixed in the next upadte.
  • zabak's avatar
    Flut, I have a problem with Development-Progress.
    There is nothing but beep when I click Progress.
    Please look this and tell me how can I fix it.
    Thank you.
  • TS.'s avatar
    yes Flut, thanks, did that , it worked, transfers are showing, only it has no overlay now as you mentioned.
  • Red till im dead's avatar
    Thanks Flut, my graphics problem all sorted.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Apaco: you are absolutely right. That panel and the others regarding the world panel are now fixed.
  • Apaco's avatar
    First of all, thanks a lot for the skin! Makes my game experience much better!

    So onto my "problem":
    If I go to "world" - "managers" - then I am not able to use the drop-menus. I dont know if thats just me, or if it is a bug.

    When I try to chose the dropbox where you can sort the managers by matches etc the managers automatically only get sorted by name - and up to the right if I try to tick the dropmenu named "filter" I only get the managers sorted by age.

    Hope you understand my problem, at least if you go to world and then managers.

    Thanks again for the skin!
