FM 2016 Skins - g2 FM16 skin v1.2

g2 FM 2016 Skin by gizel

Released: 21 Jan 2016 - v1.0
Last Update: 19 May 2016 - v1.2

I only tested it in 1920x1080 resolution. You'll probably experience alignment issues if running this skin at lower resolutions, and, unfortunately, I have not enough free time to fix it to suit also in lower res.

Keep in mind that skin was made for personal use, and originally meant to be played with big sidebar. So if you decide to play with icons only sidebar you may experience some alignment issues in some (rare) cases.


I would just like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Vitrex's authors. Thank you guys, you was and are my biggest source of inspiration.

I'd like to thank also Artdekdok for his panels and Wannachupbrew, OPZ, Flutskin, Gunzo, Andromeda, Helveticalite skin creators for their works that helped me to build up my skin. Last but not least, wkdsoul with his precious suggestions.

A special mention goes to Michaelmurray. Without his help that skin would not have come into being.

How to add g2 skin in FM16

  1. Download and extract the .7z file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

  2. Place the "g2_fmskin" folder here:
    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\skins
    Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

  3. Start FM16 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
    You should see "g2 fmskin" as option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
    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.
