      Great job, really! can i suggest you to make a "original color" edition? i really like this year's colors
    • BlackJesus's avatar
      Crazy that u can change the background! Thx a lot
    • BlackJesus's avatar
      Thx for the great skin. I just saw that under match, when there is no highlights, u can not see the the opposite teams rating, when u pick to see the opposite teams formation screen.

      Love the skin, but on the squad screen why is there no top bar with positions picked, or at least not one I can see
    • tooilltoheal's avatar
      Pretty solid job, mate!
      I like particularly player profiles with big pictures and the nice addition of a visible skill level for both feet (just like the old TCS skin). I also really appreciate the instant result button - I almost never use it but it's always a nice-to-have for pre-season friendlies.
      Also the general style of the interface isn't too flashy despite looking kind of modern. It's refined and pretty balanced and, most of all, it doesn't look like an unintended revival of Championship Manager 2001/02 graphics. Well done!

      The only issues I noticed are:
      - adding a column for training rating, the vertical position looks weird, especially if the next column is the average match rating. They are not aligned. Also, training rating is kind of black over black, so it's difficult to read;
      - in the column containing the transfer interest that you can request to the player's agent, when you do request it, the feedback appears on a second line, but it's impossible to read, as it is outside the boundaries of the cell.

      Please note that my screen resolution is 3440x1440.

    • Mogy's avatar
      Hey Krysler76, thank you very much for this great skin! :) One more thing, can you please add hidden attributes column like CA and PA on the player profiles for people who are using ingame editor(I think that many people would want to see this option)? I am sending you OPZ elite skin picture as example (please check the link - Thanks :P
    • ROWDYLAD's avatar
      nice skin but such a shame ... percentage doesnt work when using background colour changes other errors to
    • Krysler76's avatar
      @udtojan95 Can you read the tutorial please ? Like this line "YOU MUST INSTALL THE THREE VERSIONS IF YOU WANT TO USE A LOWRES VERSION, HOWEVER YOUR GAME WILL NOT START"
      Don't say "this skin doesn't work' when thousands of people installed it and it worked please.

      @t0tten123 @Barks If you delete, redownload, reinstall the skin I think it will work correctly, I fixed these issues earlier
    • udtojan95's avatar
      I loved that skin in FM2020. But this skin doesnt work. Every time i load this skin my game crashes instantly and i can not start the game anymore. I have to delete the skin until i can start the game.
    • cruiseylee78's avatar
      Sure stadium pictures used to show with this skin?
    • Dr Huuffuuhhrr's avatar
      Great skin. Hard to see white text on yellow background on press questions though
    • t0tten123's avatar
      Hi there i love you skin but can i ask how do i change the texx colour on the training setup screen having trouble reading the purple text i have looked in the XML files but cannot seem to find training text colour
    • genkie55's avatar
      unfortunately no green dots in the tactic screen but that doesn't matter because it is still the best skin of fm20 and probably this year
    • RSCL96's avatar
      Great to see a new version of my favourite FM20 skin!
      Small issue i found so far, when playing on 1080p with 95% dezoom, some of the player pictures look a bit blurry (cut-out faces)
    • Barks's avatar
      Like the skin, only thing I found, is when i scroll on comparisons on a player page, 11 players first visible stay on screen even tho I have scrolled past them... so they overlap with the players underneath for instance Wan-Bissaka is my number 1 DR and Menino is nr 2, but when i scroll down Wan-Bissaka overlaps Meninos name... and it only happens in the comparisons windows, even if I move it somewhere else
    • garageflower's avatar
      Always my favourite skin. Thank you.

      An issue I have found you may or may not want to change in future updates is that there is no player condition or rating info during a game on the formations tab of the touchline tablet.

      Keep up the good work, it's really appreciated :)
    • Cirwell's avatar
      WOW the skin is awesome ! I know you said you won't be taking into consideration any personal requests but you you please, please add the green circles on tactics, that would be awesome ! Thanks for the great skin !
    • SirG's avatar
      Finally! Always best skin for me.

      Only thing that i dont like is the custom thropies pics at clubinfo. Any way to set them back to normal?
    • rodaz's avatar
      just 1 think that maybe u missed out:

      the 2D match background its still purple

      a lot of us plays with 2D and only replays 3D and thats kinda annoying
