Football Manager 2022 Skins - FM 2022 FLUT skin dark - 3.0
Dear all

This is FLUTSKIN version 3.0 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 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

The pack also 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!!

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).

    Hi Flut and thanks for the replies. Here are the two images concerning Juve and Bari. I did not understand your answer on the attributes and on the drop-down arrow in the attribute box ... I can't find it or in any case I only have the option of having the colored boxes. How can I do? Thanks for everything.
  • Flut's avatar
    bluemoon: if you removed that folder I told you, since it will be required, my suggestion is download the skin again. After that you have the flutscoreboard in the bundesliga, but if you want to use it without managers pictures, use this file:


    Place it in:

    Reload the game and that's it.
  • bluemoon78's avatar

    I hope u understand me with pictures
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi bluemoon: maybe I didn't understand exactly what you want. I understand you want the scoreboard exactly how SI have for bundesliga (i.e. the default regarding bundesliga). Am I right?
  • bluemoon78's avatar
    I did ur said but not change anything. I reset pc and reload gama its same. is there any idea for solve the problem??
  • Flut's avatar
    If you want to use the default scoreboard of Bundesliga you just have to remove the folder comps wich is in panels/match folder of the skin. After removing the folder don't forget to reload the game.

    [email protected]

    Regarding your questions:
    Regarding 1 and 2, can you send me screenshots?
    3. For player panel you should download the 2D kits adapted to FlutSkin. You can do the download in the following link

    4. Yes. Is possible, but you have the attributes without background boxes in the drop down arrow in the attributes box.

    In the tactics screen, where you choose players' positions, I see that when you select a player shirt to move the position, the possible players' position you can put it on the pitch are all flashing on/off, dissapearing etc. – This happens because the kits are rotating from front to back (duyring the front image the halo is not displayed)

    Also, in a competition overview (for example Premier League) on the league table which is at the left side, team letters' sizes are very small.
    How can this be fixed? _ you can change the fonts in league stage panel views.xml, changing 8.5 for the size you want (however, it should be noted that if you increase a lot the font size, the club names will be cut…)

    Regarding the japanese teams I not include the files in the pack, since that addon causes a conflict with data hub panel.


    I don’t know. But if you change for FC style, I just finished to update the pack. You can download it here

    hi flut good skin I manage dortmund and I dont like bungesliga scoreboard so how can I change ur original scoreboard?
  • asapas's avatar
    Ok The only thing here is that the team's names on the league table are very small.
  •'s avatar
    Hello great Flut, immense Flut!
    I am writing to you only because I would like to understand a few things:
    1) the names in the Juve player bar cannot be read because it is dark
    2) In the home of Bari the names are not read because the font color is light
    3) I tried to download the FC12 kits directly to see the shirt in the player panel but it remains the default one.
    4) is it possible to eliminate the colored rectangles, in the attributes, and leave only the numbers?
    Thank you so much!
  • asapas's avatar
    PS found the problem with the shirt numbers in your PDF. But I have a problem with the Japanese teams, I cannot see their club overview panel. Is there any fix on this???
  • asapas's avatar
    Also, I can't remember how can I get the number in the shirt smaller, because it is large right now and I cannot see the player's name on the shirt.

    I use mainly the FLUT card club background colour.

    Otherwise, amazing work as always my friend with this skin!! I can't play another one each and every year.

    Hi Flut, the link you gave me works, but its for fm21 with old kits. How can I get the one for this year? Thanks
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi malovski: thanks! Go to competition news panel.xml and change
    <container class="tabbed_container" id="gcol" default_item="ftsc" save_session_state="true" dont_set_embedded_title="true" >


    <container class="tabbed_container" id="gcol" default_item="gazz" save_session_state="true" dont_set_embedded_title="true" >

    Hi ivanpac: great!!
  • ivanpac's avatar
    That did the trick superbly, thanks Flut!
  • malovski's avatar
    beautiful skin as always! one question,how can i make gazzetta newspaper default in news section? when i reload,it returns as default
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi ivanpac: I believe if you use the alt without managers it will be okay (but, of course the managers will not be displayed)
  • ivanpac's avatar
    I am on a 1920x1080 (max resolution on that laptop), icons only, full screen; windows display settings at 85%. If I switch to 100% it's even worse. Thanks for your help!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi ivanpac: that is weird (are you using 1920x1080, icons only, full screen; windows display settings 100%?).
  • ivanpac's avatar
    Hi Flut, just noticed that with the 22 version, the button "dressing room" at half-time in live matches is almost missing. I am using full screen 1920X1080. Please see screenshot at . Thanks for looking into this!
  • ivanpac's avatar
    Just saw that drop-down menu, that's brilliant, thanks Flut!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi ivanpac: first of all, thanks for your donation. I really appreciated!!! Regarding your question, if you want, you can have a picture of the team stadium. You just have to have a stadium packs with the config as in the following example, where the ID is the Club ID and make sure that that folder is read by the game before the folder where you have the players backgrounds (the game read the folders in alphabetical order).

    <record from="2062002129" to="graphics/pictures/team/2062002129/background"/>

    Of course you also can choose one of the other options in the drop down arrow in the player overview panel, since only two of the six options have background stadiums (in your case. player pictures).
  • ivanpac's avatar
    Superb skin Flut, thank you!
    Sent your way a small recognition for all your work and time.
    There is one thing I'd like to change though on the player overview panel. I'd like to replace the background behind the player picture, and behind the kits , both on the top left. I currently have the player picture and depending on the background picture it does not always come neat. Thanks for any advice you could bring.
