How to install the Mustermann skin on FM22

1. Extract the contents of the downloaded .rar archive by using a free tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac.

2. Move the Mustermann folder of choice (QHD is for wide screens and FHD is for regular screens) to your skins folder, which is located by default at:
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2022 > skins


- Blues: Dark blue-Grey background, silver text, with blue accents
- Maroon: Slate grey background, beige text, with maroon and light pink accents
- Teal & Orange: Dark brown background, cream text, with teal & orange accents
- Teal & Salmon:Dark blue-grey background, light grey text, with teal & salmon accents

INSTRUCTIONS: Open the folder for the preferred colour scheme and COPY the contents to the main skin folder. This will only replace the necessary files.

    Cannot find the way to change the colour schemes. It says you have alternative colour combinations in the zip file + instructions but I found none.
  • Umbersun78's avatar
    Just downloaded it for the first time and immediately loved it. I've been using the FLUT skin for a few years but now I have a new favourite one. Clean, useful and looks nice.
    In the 3D matches I would like to see 2 changes only: Show the name of the player that assisted the goal and show the clubs names in the score, instead of the abbreviated letters only.

    @likeastar20 - this is controlled by panels/player/player overview panel.xml

    Line 7 defines the sizes of the information:

    <layout class="vertical_arrange" vertical_layout="6,300,2,44,2,17,15,2,200,2,-1" offset="0" inset="0" gap="0" draw_horizontal_dividers="false"/>

    300 is the container for the player picture. Changing this will impact the scorecards, too - so you may need to make edits to panels/player/mustermann/vertical.xml too.

    Here you'll probably need to change the values which for vertical_layout="15,60", and the text size which is currently size="18"

    How do i make the player face smaller ? What file should i edit?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @jcs1249 - the fix has now been rolled out officially.
  • gimn85's avatar
    @hutoew - Unfortunately not. I don't use the in-game editor, and would be unable to test.

    @Juegodeposicion - maybe in the future, but I can't make any promises. With a graphical attribute skin and light skin already planned, I will essentially be supporting 8 different skins, so it might end up being just too many to maintain.
  • hutoew's avatar
    Do you have a plan add hidden attributes panel?

    fantastic skin !
  • Juegodeposicion's avatar
    Is there any chance to make this awesome skin to be suitable for lower res (for ex: 1366x768? Thank you! Keep up the good work!
  • gimn85's avatar
    @vinlando - no worries. There are some files that only "load" when you boot up the game, so require a full restart to come into effect. Evidently this is one of them!
  • vinlando's avatar
    I thought clearing cache and reloading skin was enough, but restarting the game fixed the start screen thing, forgot to update after my initial comment.
  • gimn85's avatar
    @jcs1249 - super, thank you for getting back. Looks like I'll need to add that change to the next release!!
  • jcs1249's avatar
    That fixed it. Thank you so much!
  • gimn85's avatar
    @Juegodeposicion - I've just downloaded myself and had no warning either during virus scan or whilst trying to extract.

    It might be worth downloading again and seeing if the problem persists. I can assure you there isn't a virus (but then I would say that!)
  • Juegodeposicion's avatar

    why does it say that the file contains a virus?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @vinlando - 1.4 fixed the "Quit to Start Screen" issue in all versions, including QHD. The problem was caused by the customised intro panel (the one when you open FM to begin with). The only difference between 1.3 and 1.4 for QHD was that fix.

    If you're using 1.3, you can achieve the same by deleting the following files:

    panels/game/intro panel.xml
    graphics/main menu (whole folder)
  • gimn85's avatar
    @jcs1249 - the issue might be with the following file:

    panels/match/tactics with embedded section tabs panel.

    Download the replacement file below and place it in the aforementioned folder (panels/match), and let me know if that's sorted it out:
  • vinlando's avatar
    Was 1.4 just fixing the FHD version? I'm using QHD (blue) and it's still greyed out for me.
  • jcs1249's avatar
    My monitor resolution is 1920x1080 and I'm using the FHD version.
  • gimn85's avatar
    @jcs1249 - can you tell me which skin you are using, and the resolution of your monitor?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @Juegodeposicion - if you want to remove the scorecards, you'll need to edit the following file:


    On row 5 change horizontal_layout="330,100" to horizontal_layout="330"

    Then delete rows 51-133.
  • jcs1249's avatar
    Also I'm unable to scroll to see the rest of the team on the bench during the team selection screen. If I filter to include U-23 players I am able to scroll down to see the rest of the bench, but not if I filter it to just senior team. It cuts off about two players.

    Update: On 100% zoom it cuts off. Works when zoomed out 85%.
  • jcs1249's avatar
    Great skin! Is there a reason why the stadium images aren't showing? Wondering if it's something on my part or a bug. Thanks!
  • Juegodeposicion's avatar
    Is it possible for me to remove the stats on the player overview page (the ones that appear near the player's face pack)?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @gate13 - not currently, but it's something I can look at introducing for a future release.
  • gate13's avatar
    fantastic skin, are the stadiums showing in the schedule tab too? i.e. on the right of the schedule page where all the fixtures are shown.
