Football Manager 2018 Match In-Between Highlights Mod


As you may have noticed the match screens have been redesigned in Football Manager 2018, which is actually a good thing for this mod as we now have more room to work with.

As a change this year we have gone back to the Split Containers which allows you to adjust the width of the containers in game which allows you to more easily customize them to fit the content you want to display and your resolution. Unfortunately you cannot adjust the height of the right panels in game that still needs to be done through editing the files.

To resize the panels just grab the divider between them and drag until they are the size you want, if you want to get rid of one of the containers just drag the line to the corner of the screen so it disappears.

Another you can do is right click on the pitches shown in the formation and chalkboard panels to switch between vertical or horizontal pitches.

Also thanks to the changes, there is only the need for one version of the mod regardless of which skin or even which mode of FM you are using, though some of the information or screens might not show up in the Touch Mode as it doesn't support the same data as the full mode.

And as always outside of the match screen this mod make no changes, so it should be compatible with any skin that hasn't already altered these panels.

Installation Instructions


For Full Mode Version:

If you are using the default skins:

- Place the panels folder into your User Data Location which by default is:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\

If you are using a custom skin:

- Place the panels folder inside the folder for the skin you are using, by default this will be:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins\<skin_name>\

Then from the Preferences -> Interface Menu turn off the skin cache and reload your skin for the changes to be loaded.

For Touch Mode Version:

After unzipping place the panels folder inside the folder for the skin you are using, by default this will be:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager Touch 2018\skins\<skin_name>\

If you are using one of the default FMTouch Skins then you will need to download and switch to one of the Base FMTouch Skins.

Then from the Preferences -> Interface Menu turn off the skin cache and reload your skin for the changes to be loaded.

To change the item shown in each panel just select the drop down arrow in the top right hand corner of each panel and select the view you want. So if you want to change the Left Panel from the Overview to the Match Stats view, just select Match Stats in the dropdown menu.

You can also adjust the width of the columns in game by dragging the dividing line left/right, unfortantly you cannot adjust the height split of the right panel as the game wouldn't store the status.

If you want to change the appearance of the content that appears in the individual menus then you will need to follow the instructions in the Advanced Instructions section below.
