FM 2021 FLUT skin dark - Version 14.0

NOW THE SKIN IS TOTALLY COMPATIBLE WITH 1920x1080 SCREEN RESOLUTION AND 4k (windows display settings 200%; game 100%).

Dear all
I’m proud to introduce you the FLUTSKIN (dark version) for FM21.

I would like to thank you all the fans who contacted me in order to know if FLUTSKIN would be released this year and gave me additional motivation to hard work on the skin.
I hope you like and appreciate the work done.

As usual, the FLUTSKIN is completely full of changes when you compare with the default skin.

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!!!

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.
However, if you prefer edit your own kits, I also included in the pack a .pdf file explaining how you can edit the kits for Flutskin.

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

- Club overview panel tweaked, namely regarding the key players panel.
- Some bugs fixed
- That's it. I had doubts about releasing this version now, but given the requests related to the new Player overview panel, I decided not to make you wait any longer. Thus...I hope you enjoy it!!

Important note regarding TV LOGOS:
Although the default tv logo is the one I use, of course you can easily change it; for that you just have to go to skin/graphics/icons/tv logos. In that folder there is a alt folder with many TV logos. You just have to replace the tv logo.png and the tv [email protected] for that one you want. Of course you should rename the new logos as tv logo and tv [email protected] You also can use other logos made by you. The procedure to use them is exactly the same. However, I should remember that yo should use logos with the right height. For tv logo you should use 25px and for the @2x you should use 50px.

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).

Also a special thank you to Michael Murray since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work!!

Also a special thank you for Rosek and Evil-Muffin from sourtitoutsi and other FM fans (I just highlighted Rosek and Evil since they are all the time available to help the people who like to play with FlutSkin and they are keeping the answers of questions and requests updated; however I thank you all!!!)

One last "thing": some of the screenshots of the skin are not updated (are from previous versions of the skin). Sorry for that but I have not time yet to update the screenshots.

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 3840x2160 (4K with windows display settings 200%) and also 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions..

    Hi all

    The new 14.0 version is now available with many tweaks/changes.
    I hope you enjoy it!!
  • Axis7114's avatar
    @Flut: Im using Profile Flut Stadium.
  • Flut's avatar
    @Menelik: you can do it in titlebar search panel.xml in the following code
    <widget class="text" id="sect" font="fonts/flick" alignment="left, centre_y,can_scale" size="28" style="bold" multiline="false" auto_size="horizontal" wants_mouse_events="false" dont_give_default_focus="true" colour="secondary">

    @Axis: since there are several codes (one for each one of the drop down arrow options) I need to know what is the option you use.
  • Axis7114's avatar
    Hi Flut! I downloaded the SS kits for the Player Overview Profile menu. Looks good. I would still love to remove the generic kit on the right side in the same menu with the name und number. ICan you please tell me what files to delete so I just have the SS kits showing?
  • Menelik's avatar
    I love the skin!
    If I want to make the Title font smaller , where can I edit that ?
    There the team name or player name stand.

  • Tom R.'s avatar
    Ok, I found what I want.

    Thank you, Flut, again!
  • Tom R.'s avatar
    Flut, for my previous post.

    I found how change 'boxes' colors for players.

    But how change for coach/staff?
  • Tom R.'s avatar
    Hi, Flut, thanks for great skin!

    How I can change colors players/coach attribute 'boxes' (now red, green, yellow).

    Which lines in which files edit?

    Thank you!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Axis: thanks. Instead of remove that default kits, if you use SS kits, you can replace the FC kits by SS kits. You can download the pack HERE
  • Axis7114's avatar
    Great skin, thank you for amazing work. I would like to remove the generic 2D kits under the Player Overview Profile menu. I just want my SS kits to show, without the kit background with the name and number. Can you please tell me what files to delete so I just have my SS kits showing?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi filip: in order I can better understand your questions, please put screenshots explaining exactly what is the question/problem. Sorry.
  • filip991's avatar
    The mouse can stretch a little, it can't go full screen as it used to be. Can it be full screen?

    I guess they can't stand on the side of this FM permanently as in previous FM releases.

    Now I noticed one more thing, I have a problem when I put a player in his position that he doesn't show me the scroll how natural that position is to him, and often even though he is in a natural position and role he shows as if I put the goalkeeper to play attacker :D
  • Flut's avatar
    @filip991: I already included that information regarding the last club and the last proposal; regarding the other question, the panel of match inbetween highlights should be enlarged using the mouse. There is also a panel on the left that it appears if you click on the match clock box. The other questions, sorry but I didn't understand them.

    destin: what is the panel where you want to remove the potential ability?

    labrosmat: when you extract the skin you have several folders inside the skin folder. The folder with the name of the skin is the folder you should place in the skins folder of the game.
  • filip991's avatar
    Is there a possibility that this data that is displayed during the game during loading (as in the photo) will be full screen as in previous editions of FM (your skin)?

    Specifically, I would like to have more information, especially about the players as in the 2nd photo.

    One more question. Since I only play with your skin, I don't know if it's a skin or before the game, in FM20 when your assistant had to accept or reject advice during the game, now as far as I can see you can only do that regarding changes. Is it up to the skin or is this FM21 made so stupid.

    P.S. I really miss the bar downstairs where it was shown when a goal, a card, etc. fell. where you could see the course of the game whether something was happening or not (now they stuffed it like a little under the clock).

    @ Zastinlord...i am assuming it the 3d kits youre talking. if u have the in-game editor you can fix the home kit issue with that...use the editor to edit kits, you will see a few in the home tab. if u select the shirts it will show detail of competition it is used in. Just delete the kit for the premier league...(i deleted all except the one that had no competiton, just to be sure) click the editor icon select 'Allow licensed kits', clear cache and reload and bob's your uncle.
  • destin's avatar
    any chacne there's going to be a way so i can change it so i don't see the hidden ability? i know it's a long shot and i'm probably in the minority but i love the skin and i was curious
  • labrosmat's avatar
    Hi all - need help please installing this.

    I have added the folder to the skins folder and now can see the folder fm2021flutskin_dark and the folder FLUTSKIN 13 alts in there, and it is available. However, when i load the game and go to preferences, only the original FM Skin is in there. Any ideas?
  • filip991's avatar
    great this done to compare players, every part!
    I remembered another detail you had before, and now it's gone. in the field where the attributes are on the right stands the potential, the stronger leg, the traits and only the last transfer is missing. You used to have to say for how much money that player and the icon of the club where he came from were brought
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    I´m sure with othe skins the same. Is not because of the skin i think. It´s a license problem.
  • Zastinlord's avatar
    It only happen when I am playing in Premier league, but when the match as FA cup or Europe league. The kits was show up like normal
  • Zastinlord's avatar
    Arsenal was the only club have club that kits doesn't show on top. I already download FM FLut logos and kits too, But Arsenal was the only that have this issue
    It's not a big deal, but I am Arsenal fan lol
  •'s avatar
    Now I understand ... I downloaded the skin again and changed everything except that panel! Everything ok ... Thanks, you enlightened me!
    Ps. The only thing is that the team crest is a bit cut...
  • Flut's avatar
    oscar: I noticed that you are not using the last player overview panel.xml (since in your screenshot the comparison panel is not the current). What is the player overview panel. xml are you using?
  •'s avatar
    So ... I tried but nothing ... The fact is that even when I put "Profile Flut Card", the shirts are a little bigger but still far apart ... Do I have to change something?
  •'s avatar
    I'll let you know ... The only thing is that I've always had the left bar like this and, in fact, the shirts have always been bigger
