    which pitches are these ?
  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    @ayax18 Thanks for your support mate. I don't know if you can make the top bar transparent but for the sidebar you can edit tha background and make it transparent. I have a text inside the folder that says where the sidebar's backgrounds are!
  • Ayax18's avatar
    Hi Alexmorak, im a big fan of your work. This is perfect for laptop resolution.
    I would like to know how to change the sidebar color to make it transparent and also the top menu bar, the screen would look wide and clean.
  • boufdover's avatar
    Ah ok, so it's not the skin that's causing it? They were loading before I installed the skin....

    Anyway, it's just me being fussy - the game still works and the skin still does a great job!
  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    @boufdover I dunno my friend anything about kits and their config files. Btw thank you very much for your good words and hope you continue enjoying the skin :D
  • boufdover's avatar
    Hi. This is a cracking skin - easily my favourite now - thanks!
    I do have a minor issue though...
    The skin has installed perfectly, except my team's kits do not show in the main team screen (the one that shows the image of the stadium etc).
    Every other team page shows the three kits with the sponsors etc but mine (Dover, team ID 647) only show the generic, plain kits.

    I can only assume that this is because I've tried to add my own kits for Dover, but do you know what might be going wrong here?

    I have the kits under C:\Users\MYNAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\graphics\kits along with the config file but it's not registering them. I've tried putting the new kits in with the skin folder but that didn't do much either

    Here is my config file:
    <!-- resource manager options -->

    <!-- dont preload anything in this folder -->
    <boolean id="preload" value="false"/>

    <!-- turn off auto mapping -->
    <boolean id="amap" value="false"/>

    <!-- logo mappings -->
    <!-- the following XML maps pictures inside this folder into other positions
    in the resource system, which allows this folder to be dropped into any
    place in the graphics folder and still have the game pick up the graphics
    files from the correct places

    <list id="maps">
    <record from="647_away" to="graphics/pictures/team/647/kits/away"/>
    <record from="647_home" to="graphics/pictures/team/647/kits/home"/>
    <record from="647_third" to="graphics/pictures/team/647/kits/third"/>

    Sorry to throw this all at you but I was hoping it might be something simple!

    Anyway, thanks again

    hi mate,
    what resolution is the skin compatible for ?
  • KennedyBakircioglu's avatar
    Hey FMTheGreekWay, love your skin, one question though as I like to customise a bit myself, how to I make the players names on the tactic screen lower case not all upper case? Thanks in advance.
  • bosssssss's avatar
    this skin has this tactic view :


    I want to put the tactic view like this :

    can someone help me ? pls
  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    I think that's fixed from SI this year. Can't change it!
  • huldiger22's avatar
    This skin is absolutely amazing BUT i don't like the colours of the competition titlebars!!!

    Please change them because now they are always like the country where the competition takes place. For exaple the Champions League is not black and white but rather blue and yellow like Europe. That's not realistic and a real pity!
  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    Thank you for your feedback. We're working on a fix that will be uploaded in the next few days. Stay tuned! ;)
  • Tooj's avatar
    Great skin but when playing a match the Opposition formation shows as this below. Any idea how to fix this?

  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    Thank you for your support. I think the titilebar uses the colour from the original colours of the team.
  • Naskela's avatar
    I love this skin, it is by far the best i have used so far this year. Only thing i would like if you could consider modding is the upper bar, it makes it impossible for some clubs to use their right club color (etc West Ham and Torino looks way more red than brown) and is not possible changing by yourself, Andromenda's skin has made that mod which makes it look allot better. Just a tip! Anyway, thanks.
  • Mexsta's avatar
    Dunno whats better the look of this skin or the fact that Derby County are in the Champions League :D good work
  • alexmorakgaming's avatar
    EmilDebski I didn't know that the sidebar icons was your creation nor the scouting reports icons. I took them both from other skins and I'm mentioning the skins in my "thanks to" text inside the folder. Anyway I'm so sorry that this happened and I wish to accept my apology! I can change them if you want..
  • EmilDebski's avatar
    Obviously if you want any help in the future in regards of your skin-making, like you asked me for today, i expect you to show some respect for my work. I have put a lot of hours into creating custom icons for Vitrex MMXV last year and Vitrex16 this year, you have taken them all to use for both scouting reports and your sidebar, but nowhere in your text there is one line of credit given, nor have you ever asked permission to use them in your skin.
