Football Manager 2021 Skins - FMEnhanced v3.0 FM21 Skin
Several months ago during the release of the BETA, I released a skin called FME (Football Manager Enhanced) which was intended to be an extension of what Sports Interactive provide as opposed to a complete overhaul. I intended to keep everything in keeping with the default look and feel of the game for a more seamless integration and ease of use.
Upon release of FME, I received some wonderful feedback from users and fellow modders, though with limited time I was unable to keep up with demand for extra features/bug fixes etc. Having gained more time over the past month, I have rebuilt FME and have stripped it back for the sake of simplicity.

Football Manager Enhanced - v3.0

If you're familiar with FME, you may be sad to learn that this version of the skin is currently only a Player Overview panel with little or no modding elsewhere. I have taken a quality over quantity approach and perhaps with more time in the future, I'll be able to rebuild the club page that I originally built. I have discovered several things that have never before been done and it would be nice to reveal them in a future update. For now though, FME is an upgraded default skin with an enhanced Player Profile.

Transfer/Scouting Labels
Player profiles show Dynamic Transfer Labels which change with context. When a player has been scouted, the "Transfer" labels are replaced with the "Transfer Interest" labels, better integrating the scout report with the player profile and giving you a quick idea of how much a player might cost.

Transfer Actions
Transfer actions are available directly from the Scout Feedback Block via a dropdown menu. Additionally, clicking on the Scout Rating Circle, or indeed any of the Transfer Labels will take you directly to the full Scout Report.

Attribute Colours/Information Block
Touch versions of the game present different attribute colours which I have modified and introduced into FME. Red highlights low attribute values, Yellow for moderate values, Blue for good values and Green for excellent values. Foot strength is of course also present underneath the Physical Table. Additionally, I have implemented a better Player Information block which I believe provides all of the essential basic information required when viewing a player.

Additional Tabs
In addition to the default Attributes tab, I have made several other tabs available which I have optimized to function in a much smaller space. Player Information, Contract Information, Transfer Information/Status, Player Report, Medical Report & History are all available to access directly from the Player Overview.

Feel free to download FME v3.0 and perhaps even use it purely as a standalone Player Overview Panel within another creators skin.

August 2021 Update

Work has kept me from being able to properly update anything else within the game and as such there is unlikely to be any more updates for FM 2021. However, due to the overwhelming positive response, I will be sure to make several key updates for FM 22. I have flagged several things within the game which I could definitely update somewhat to make the overall experience a lot more useful and I will hopefully have the time to incorporate those additions in future releases.

Football Manager Enhanced - v2.4

FME had decided to step away from the FM community at the time and it was uncertain if he'd ever return. I asked him to keep the last version of the skin here because a lot of people enjoyed using it, and he agreed. However, we can't offer support for any technical inquiries you might have. Thanks for understanding!


Download v3.0
The v3.0 downloadable is mainly a Player Overview panel with little or no modding elsewhere.

Download v2.4
The v2.4 downloadable pack includes 2 versions of the skin.
- FME (Regular)
- FME Dark


FME v3.0
FME adapts better than before to smaller resolutions. If you have a very low res screen (1024x768), you'll have a slightly limited experience as there simply isn't enough space to display all the required elements. However, stepping up to 1600x900 and 1920x1080, you have a fuller experience with greater functionality as per the images below.

FME v2.4
  • Resolutions from 1024 x 768 to 1920x1080 are fully supported.
  • If you are at 1920x1080 but not getting the "Full Experience" it is because you are not scaled at 100%. At 1920x1080 on small screens, Windows scales your screen to 125% which gives you less screen space but makes elements easier to see/read. Change this to 100% in Display Settings and you will receive the "Full Experience".
  • To get the most out of this skin, you must have at least 1000 pixels vertically and 1600 pixels horizontally, though unlike all other skins, this skin will not break, have squashed elements or become unusable below its recommended resolution.

How to install the FME FM21 Skin

  1. Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.

  2. Move the extracted folders to your skins folder:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins\

  3. Run Football Manager 2021 and go to Preferences > Interface.
    You should see "FME" and "FME Dark" as options in the skin drop down of the General options section.
    Hit the Confirm button.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    @noxrain: The skin author wanted to keep v3 somewhat hidden because the plan was to publish it here when it would be more complete and not only an enhanced player overview panel. So we opted to wait until then. However, it's now final he doesn't have enough time to make further progress with the FM21 version, therefore we decided to bring back the skin here. I believe he'll come back with a FM22 skin, I know he wants to.

    My favorite skin finally back on my favorite FM site again. Only thing I am missing is an instant result button. But apart from that, this is perfect. Been in love since the first release. I really hope you will be back for FM22, even though I understand it's hard with work and all. I don't take it for granted.

    Dark edition please?
  • tommy1412's avatar
    as fme wont be making any changes im guessing the position role and duty bug will be here for the rest of the year so sadly ill have to change skins because its too difficult to use with this bug, shame it cant be resolved.
  • Sofus Arvin's avatar
    #castiglione I have the same issue when playing on my laptop, which has 3000 x 2000 p. For me, it's worth using the skin for all its other great features.
  • DaveCillo's avatar
    Needs a fix after today's patch, position "role and duty" on the player's main page not working
  • castiglione's avatar
    This skin is great but the feature "Highlight the key attributes for role" does not work for me. I'm playing the game in 1376 x 768, may it be related to resolution?
  • DaveCillo's avatar
    Any chance for a white version? It would be my dream :'(

    I've tried many skins, this is simply the best skin for FM21. TCS is very close to this, I choose FME because it keeps the original theme, no flashy background, no funny font, tactic panel with picture+role familiarity button, TCS's panel customisation is better, but font+layout have too many bugs. if FME creator could combine those together, that would be the perfect one.

    ignore my post

    Heya! Awesome skin - been using it for years! However this time - i have noticed that the in-game editor option is not there when this skin is loaded...

    Also suddenly the instant result option has vanished.. perhaps update related?
  • pekson's avatar
    I've checked all skins available on this website, this one is the best ! Modern and simple
  • jaawis's avatar
    @Wesjuh1506: Same problem here. Can't highlight key attributes at the players profile page. Any solution?
  • adesmir's avatar
    FME will be back soon! check out his twitter.

    big thank you to FME. this is a modern state to the art skin.
  • Caster's avatar
    My favourite skin for FM! Thanks for all the work and time you put into it.
  • bls1's avatar
    I love the skin. Thanks FMEnhanced for all your work.
  • Wesjuh1506's avatar
    @FMEnhanced When I tick the box "Highlight Key Attributes For Role" it doesn't do anything. How do I fix it? That is the only annoying thing, the skin is great!
  • osmanTolo's avatar
    Thanks a lot for this contribution FME
  • mcswifty's avatar
    Its really a shame when creators up and leave. However without knowing the reasons behind their decisions, I won't speculate or guess.
    I just hope he is alright.

    I personally never mean any ill towards creators when asking about additions or changes to the skin. I make my words as constructive as I can.
  • GfxJG's avatar
    Huh, shame... It's a shame so many popular skin makers decide to step away. Can't help but think if it's to do with the entitled attitude of some people requesting specific features...

    EDIT: He straight up deleted his Twitter and everything, something really bad must have happened, didn't seem so bad when I spoke with him yesterday...

    The v1 of the skin has been removed and merged its counters (views and downloads) with this one (v2).
  • mcswifty's avatar
    Lovely skin.
    I only have one wish for any future addition if possible.
    On the player profile screen, the 4 big windows where you can select - "Attribute Analysis, Biography" and so on... Is it possible to get some more option than the 6 ones there are now?
  • T4Z's avatar
    hi i realy like your skin it would be nice onlu if you can add cpa and pa somewhere
  • Ozedevo's avatar
    I downloaded the skin and it isn't what has been shown to me... The club overview is different, the player overview is different and generally the whole skin is different apart from the 'tactics' screen... help!
  • RSCL96's avatar
    Are you planning to add the option to change the background brightness in the future?
    Also on the club plage -> overview -> general the nicknames of the clubs are blank, don't know if thats a skin issue or that they have to be filled in manually
