Football Manager 2021 Skins - Rensie Purple FM21 Skin v2
The main idea, the same as in the previous years, was to create simple skin based on default skin but with some small changes.

The original post of the version 1 is at fmrensie.net. The post about the version 2 is here

.
Same as in the previous years, this is mainly my own skin and I’m happy with how it works right now. There will be no adjustments and edits just because of feature requests. Save your time and energy before you will want to edit something.

The most common issues


Same as in any other area, there are always things what people always do, ask and moan about. One of them is when their widgets within selectors are constantly changing.

  • Try to use/have only one skin in the skins folder in the documents. The more skins you will have here, there is a bigger chance they will conflict with each other and some parts will reset or they won’t work properly.
  • Untick the option “Automatically override custom panels?” in Preferences/Interface.
  • You can edit player overview panel and player overview big selector panel and delete all widgets you don’t want to have here or set some of yours as default by the code.
  • Using other skins or just having the Dark and Purple in the same folder is the most common issue.
Mini stadiums in the Club Overview – please remember that you have to download the custom mini-stadium pack (the same graphic addon as faces, logos etc.) to make them work and appear in the club overview. They are not included in the skin, that would mean the skin would be very big.

I’m using THIS ONE. And you can always add your own picture and edit the config file to have 1) different picture or 2) picture of your new stadium.

Remember I’m making this skin with the 1920×1080 resolution.

That means that it won’t work exactly as in the pictures with lower but also with bigger resolution. There will always be something that will be aligned differently due to sizes of widgets and containers.
Be sure to exit the game, move the old skin(s) from the Sports Interactive/Football Manager/skins folder out before you will extract the new one. Clear cache – ideally not only in the game but also in your App data folder. How to do it? Follow this link!

Not everything is a mistake or issue of the custom skins. Sometimes it’s enough to revert to default skin to check if it works or not.

If you would like to remove the sidebar logo, just:
  • Open the skin folder/panels/generic and sidebar menu table.xml
  • Scroll down and delete the <!– Primary Logo –> widget (lines 136-148)
  • Save the file, clear cache and reload skin. Or just restart the game.

    This happens even in the default skin when you click on the scoreboard to have the tablets widgets open while watching the highlight. It makes it transparent like this so you will see the ball. If you will hide the touchline tablet widgets you will see the highlights as usual.

    Hello man, I have been using your skins for a while and I have to say that I really like them. Today, I was browsing on this site and i found out the new updated skin of yours. So I downloaded it, did all the things needed to be done in order to have it in game and then I started the game. However, in a match, something weird happens with the panels, as you can see below on the 2 screenshots. Do you know why ?

    There is a link to my website with the original post for this skin and there is a version without a coloured sidebar/titlebar. Just search. https://wp.me/pbJO6z-8ro

    Hi mate, how can i make the sidebar panel not changing colors (stays purple). Apologies but i cannot stand the bright color
  • keysi's avatar
    UPDATE:

    The v2 was updated due to a change of ID within several panels and the game showed circles instead of stars.

    Download links for both dark & purple version are on my website HERE.

    The main changed files were these three:

    player positions indicator small.xml

    player positions indicator small horizontal.xml

    positions.xml

    Click to the formation with the right mouse button and change Vertical to Horizontal or vice versa.

    Not sure if anyone else has this problem but the formations panels seem to be the same, not a big issue like, just thought I'd share.

    Greentrunk:
    Are there any plans for a touch version at all?
    No, I'm not using touch version so I won't make the skin for it. Check the SI Forum, Michael Murray made the touch version skin.

    Hello,

    Thank for the skin, but i have a little bit of a problem.

    Is it possible to keep the manager home screen like it is in the screenshot above. I have changed it to what i like but when i return to the screen it keeps getting back to what i was in the beginning.

    https://gyazo.com/64529851fa324475b8eae3469d64b3ae - this is what it keeps getting back to and not like what it is when i changed the tabs like it is in your screenshot of it.

    Thanks in advance.

    MICASYT:
    is there any way that i can get the panel related to finances on the Club Profile?
    You can extract the default files/panels and find the right widget to place to the selector in the right bottom corner or you can replace any other widget here.

    I was notified of the bug within player development/progress/attributes changes.

    The solution is simple – go to the skin folder/panels/player and delete “player attribute history” file and reload the skin. I left this file here by mistake.

    Wilker Mendes:
    Hello, congratulations on the good work.
    When in doubt, does this skin have an option to show the CA / PA values?
    No, Wilker, it doesn't support this. It would be within the list of edited things if it would be in the skin.
