Football Manager 2023 Skins - Material Skin 2.0.23 V1.17 by budwaiser4
Hi everyone!

First of all, I sincerely thank all those who appreciated the work done the previous years and who have given their contribution by leaving feedback on the skin and at the same time I apologize if in the last period I have not been able to make the changes you requested.

Also this year the Material Skin is ready for you!
It is still in beta and improvements are likely to be made in the next few days.

I hope you will enjoy my work again this year.


if you notice any bugs write me in private and I will try to solve ASAP.

    thanks for your job .

    @winger no problem but if you download the latest version of the skin you'll see the deadline day with color of the normal skin (i've tested going on holiday until the deadline day).
    The block screen that appear randomly in profile information now shouldn't apperars because I removed some references to the images that maybe caused the problem as I don't think it's a resolution problem.

    hey man, dont take my criticism as some kind of hate. dont worry i never meant any of my points in angry way..
    i passed deadline day, so i cant take any screens but if ANY skin automatically chnages its colors layout during deadline day (bc i think it does on default by SI creators) then its not your problems.. i play on monitor res so 3840-2160 . sometimes those black blocks from player information disapperar but always getting back and then again idk why they disappear again..
    those black spots are as well at some other pages like press conferences , watching stats from previous matches, etc.. i dont use any background skins, i cleared cache, i dont use any other addons besides logos,faces and kits. and im not coder, programmer or any other IT oriented dude so i honestly dont know how to help you other that sending screenshost which i did earlier in thos comment sections.. maybe when you reach deadline day (click on "take part" of course) maybe you will see. mybe not.. if the problem is resolution 3840 2160 than ok, its my problem (i cant imagine to play this game for any lower res than my monitor)..
    you did great job for this skin last year, and ofc this year but im just saying , last year i didnt have any problem and played it with same res as this year.

    @Romba for position abilties you mean the highlighted part in this screen?

    At the same time also the hidden attributes you can found there

    I dont know if you means the things i show you
  • RoMbA's avatar
    Well done. To be the perfect one, can you add the hidden attributes and positions abilities to the player's profile? :D
  • mickflower's avatar
    Best skin. Definitely.
  • EDimkA's avatar
    You are the best man, thanks again for this beautiful skin @budwaiser4
  • budwaiser4's avatar
    @winger help me out with the bugs, in my game i'm not arrived at the deadline day, if you help me with some screenshot i really want to fix this bugs..I'm sorry but i'm not a professional skin maker so your help for me is really important to understand what i miss.

    The black squares i really not have in my game, maybe i must check if it's a resolution problem. Tomorrow i can spent some time on fixing the skin because it's sad for me have a product with bugs

    @everyone i try to do my best to fix the bugs
  • EDimkA's avatar
    Really good looking skin prob one of my favourite but we would appreciate some fixing OP :D ! Thanks

    i rly liked this skin in fm21 but this year its broken.. now i am in deadline day and the whole skin is broken., too many black blocks.. menu changed in colors, basically it switched itself to black/blue/dark themed skin .. i know its because its deadline day and after 24 hrs it will restore BUT its rly annoying bcuz i always take part in deadline day and this broken skin is not good to anyones eyes...

    @winger if you try to reload the cache from the preferences the error disappear? Because i dont see it :(

    Sometimes those black sqaures disapper and idk why but sometimes they are back... When i hit reload skin, it doesnt help.

    idk if its critical information - i dont play 1920x1080 but 3840x2160 res.

    If you add Individual Training panel so that when multiple players are selected, the user can Praise/Criticise training performance much faster, this will be the best skin out there.

    Selected players show up as part of a list, all with their own Praise/Criticise buttons which disappear when an action has been completed. No more clicking back and forth.

  • DimiZag's avatar
    Hey there, mate! I know that I asked you for this some days ago, but I have to do it again: Is there any chance of having the player's profile panels from the previous years for this year's skin? Thank you again for your awesome skin!

    thank you
  • Manager34's avatar
    For me the colour is the main reason why i use his skin, really easy on the eyes.:-)

    @DzzOficial: What bugs do you still see? Im just curious because i didnt
    notice any
  • DzzOficial's avatar
    The creator fixed some bugs pretty fast that I reported, there are still some bugs but they don't affect the gameplay, honestly the skin is very good, maybe the colour can be a bit annoying for the eyes, but otherwise it's one of the best skins without a doubt, I love it.
