Football Manager 2022 Skins - FM 2022 FLUT skin dark - 6.0
Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN version 6.0 for FM22!!

Ten years (!!!!) after start editing the Flutskin I would like to give a great thank you to all FM fans who choose to play with FLUTSKIN and always keep me motivated to still editing the skin and gave me new ideas!!!

A special thank you to all of players who decided to distinguish my work with a donation!! Although just a small part of FM Players who use the skin made a donation (I edited the skin as a hobby and, as you know, completely free), I always feel honoured and happy when people recognize the work done and decide to contribute. So, I reinforce, I have to give a special thank you to that friends of FlutsKin!!!!!!

Also a thank you to all skin makers who indirectly contribute to my work and a special thank you to PATRES10, from fmslovakia for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin), to MICHAEL MURRAY since I started editing the match inbetween highlights panel based on his amazing work, to BRIAN-Q from sourtitoutsi, for the metallic “Round country flags” and his great collaboration in the “country locator maps”, to NUNO KOPIO for the “Square shiny flags” I included as alt files (for using as an alternative to the “Round country flags”) and to DAZS8 for his great work in the addons for Flutskin.

This FLUTSKIN for FM22 is almost equal to the last version of Flutskin for FM21. Therefore, you can find so many changes comparing to the default skin that I can’t present them here (it includes the most required stuff such as instant result during a match, picture of the player who scores a goal in the match, last starting XI in club overview panel, citypics, outside and inside stadiums vision possibility, real 2D kits in player overview panel, etc). I suggest you to see with your eyes all the changes!!

Main changes in 6.0 of FLUTSKIN:
- Home panel (individual match analysis included)
- Player popup panel (information about media handling style and personality included)
- Player profile panel (drop down arrow with two profile styles included; profile 1 as it was in version 5.0; profile 2 with the front and back kits instead of the attributes analyser)

Main changes in 5.0 of FLUTSKIN:
-New Home panel (now you can easily look at all the information navigatin among 4 different tabs)
-Match inbetween highlights panel tweaked (manager picture and team logo in the formation panels included)
-Full match review panel tweaked (manager pictures included in the tab)
-Tactics overview panel and data hub match overview tweaked (three tabs included)
-Mentoring popup add players tweaked (many new columns included)
-Some tweaks in social group detailed description
-Finally the percentage graph (sharpness/physical) in the match players bar widget is working perfectly, changing continuously.

[color=#204A87]The pack includes many alt files for customize the skin (please read the read me file included in the pack) and several tutorials: 1) how should be the configs for the stadiums packs; 2) how can you adjust the size and the place of the kit number in player overview panel; 3) how can you do the 2D kits adapted for Flutskin. BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ALT FOLDERS AND ALSO AT THE READ ME AND TUTORIAL FILES!!

Here are the main changes of version 4.0:
-Match players bar widget ("New" layout, with position colours and nation flags included)
-Math full review (new tab including player ratings included in the central box of the panel)
-New alt folder for those who prefer play the game with some special backgrounds in some panels (tunnel, press conference, briefing, medical centre, training, board room, dressingroom,…).
-Bugs fixed and small tweaks here and there.

Main Changes in FLUTSKIN 3.0
-Human manager (last starting XI included)
-Subs popup panel in the match (player pictures included)
-Match panel (5 last minutes possession bar included - alternating with the commentary bar; match timeline bar/events included)
-"New" match titlebar (added some new information, including the referee with the picture; match scoreboard centred in the screen; transparency in all the panels, except the match scoreboard included; the bar height was also increased a little)
-Bugs fixed and some tweaks here and there

Main changes in FLUTSKIN 2.0
-Club Overview panel tweaked ("new" results box and player value included in the key players box)
-Inbox training focus tweaked
-Last starting eleven included in the nation overview panel
-New match bar widget (buttons directly accessing substitutions and opponent instructions included; bigger kits without be covered by the player picture included)
-New instant result panel (new buttons to access much more information; new information included and bigger kits included)
-Staff changes panel tweaked
-Missing transfer deadline day button in titlebar was included
-Other small tweaks and bugs fixed

Here are some screenshots

Main changes in FLUTSKIN 1.0
  • Club overview panel (last starting XI included)
  • Human profile and non player profile (new information included in new tabs)
  • Small caption tweaked (picture of the player who scored a goal enlarged)
  • Various inbox panels changed (50 best wonderkids of the year and several scout reports)
  • Bugs fixed and other tweaks here and there

The pack also includes many alt files for customize the skin, and several tutorials: 1) how should be the config for the stadium packs; 2) how can you adjust the place and the size of the kit number in player overview panel; 3) how can you make the 2D kits adapted for Flutskin.

Main changes in FLUTSKIN BETA 2 (you can check the changes in the following screenshots)

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

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.

Important note regarding kit number and name in the player overview panel:
Since many people asked about the adjustments in the number and name in the kits (in player overview panel), and also since I already answered that many many times, I decided to make my “job” easier, avoiding answering that question again, and again and again.
Thus I did a tutorial which is included in the skin pack.

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..

How to add Flut Skin in FM22

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

Place the "fm2022flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM22 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2022 Flut Skin dark - 6.0 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.

    Hi nrg: that problem is weird...Maybe there is a conflict with other skins. Have you already tried to clear the cache and remove all other skins from the skins folder?

    Regarding the folders: in my case I have the logos in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\graphics\logos and the stadiums and citypics packs in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\graphics\pictures

    Hi maxkolonko73: as I could understood, using the translator, you are asking "How to change the tactic-selection of the line-up in the panel so that players are set by position, not age?". Am I right? If I understood well, you just have to click on the head of the first column (that one of the positions chosen). If I haven't understand well, could you please explain a little bit more your problem; and please, in english?

    Hi Flut!

    First of all thank you for creating this awesome skin year after year! :)

    I'm using it for several years and FMs. But with the latest version I'm facing problems using "metallic Logos" Pack.

    I put these media files inside the graphics folder. Same as every year. But it is not working. Skin will not find/display the logos. Although other skins and the fm default skin are displaying metallic Logos. A complete "reinstall" of Flut skin didn't help.

    Please, could you help me or give an advice, what could be the problem.

    Moreover Stadium and City pics are not working. Where do those files need to be placed inside graphics folder?

    Hi Flut,

    Thanks for your response. I ha ve purchased ingame editor dlc.
    thanks for all ! great job !
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Nosle: In fact now I use (in my game) the ability ranging from 0-200 and I forgot to change the code for the released version (it works well only if we have the ingame editor). However, is easy to change the code.

    Go to player additional attributes panel.xml and change

    <record id="object_property" get_property="PCAB"/>


    <record id="object_property" get_property="Pcab"/>


    <record id="object_property" get_property="PPAB"/>


    <record id="object_property" get_property="Ppab"/>

    bluemoon78: thanks for your work. You can use the PM if you want and I can try to take a look in the problems you found (you can place screenshots of those problems there). However, I don’t know if I know how to help you.

    ric_sa: thanks!! I answered you in the chat.

    WelshyJim: hi and thanks. Regarding your question, you can try to clear the cache and reload the game. However, I also noticed that the tab number 4 load slower than the other 3. I don’t know why….

    [email protected]: thanks. The answer is yes. You can use the FC12 kits adapted for flutskin. In the pack you can find a pdf named 2D kits adapted for Flutskin.pdf where I explain how could you do that adaptation. You also can download a pack in the following link

    Hey there, love the skin, great work! One problem I am having is it takes a minute or so to load the home tab when I click on it. I don't know if this is an issue my end or something else.
  •'s avatar
    Hello Flut, you're a machine.
    Can the FC12 kits be used to be seen in the player panel? And if so, how can it be done? He is my first football manager and I am learning and in the instructions I do not understand anything. I am Spanish and I use the translator. Do you have a guide or a video or just a file which makes the kits folder when copied into logos the one used in the player panel? Thank you very much for making this game much better with your skin.
  • Flut's avatar
    [email protected]: thanks. Could you please show me a screenshot with your problem? And…maybe there is a conflict with skins. Try to clear the cache, exit the game, keep this skin version only in the skins folder of the game (remove all other skins) and reload the game.

    Gazonius: hi. Could you please show a screenshot regarding what you want? Thanks. Regarding the light skin the answer is no. I will not edit a light skin this year. Sorry.

    orhusby: thanks. Regarding your question, the answer is yes. However I need to see all the panel in order to know what is the box you are showing. Could ytou please put a screenshot with all the panel?

    Jimmyh: thank you. Regarding your question, are you using the pack of 2d kits adapted to flutskin?
  •'s avatar
    hello, first of all, thank you, it's the best skin ever! it's fantastic. But, I have a doubt, I don't get the instant result button... should I do something?
  • Gazonius's avatar
    Is there a way to set the combined league table view as default in the .xml coding of the skin?
  • orhusby's avatar
    Hello Flut,
    I like your skin very much but I was wondering if it would be possible to remove the shirts and badges from the 'Overview' match widget as shown in the attached picture.

    They are taking up way too much space for me. I can possibly edit them out myself but I would need help in finding out what attributes and file to edit.

    Thanks in advance!
  • Gazonius's avatar
    Any chance of the light one being released? Love this skin!!
  • Jimmyh's avatar
    Hi Flut,
    Thanks for the best skin out there. I’m struggling to get my kits to show up in player profiles. I tried to read the guide and many of the questions here but its just to hard for me to understand. I might be stupid but i just don’t get it. With F21 i dont remember having any problems with this. Is there any chances that you can explain it for “dummy’s” so i might understand how to fix it? Thank you
  • Flut's avatar
    Iboromark: are you using the 2kits adapted for flutskin? If you want to use the SSKits adapted for flutskin, go HERE

    Shadow Ombre: I don't use a mac but I believe that the installation is not different regarding the other years.

    RichardCarr: In my game everything is okay. Thus, maybe there is a conflict with skins (try to clear the cache, exit the game, keep this skin version only in the skins folder of the game and reload the game).
  • RichardCarr's avatar
    Great skin...Keep up the good work!!
    But i may have noticed a glitch. when you go to your squad and open a player profile, there estimated value is £0. Is this possibly a fault?
  • Shadow Ombre's avatar
    I'm really sorry, but I followed all the instructions (I already did it for FM21), and I can't install this skin on my mac (mac os Monterey).
    Can someone help me?
