Football Manager 2023 Skins - Mustermann v3.03 FM23 Dark Skin - INCLUDING NEW SKIN


A dark mode for Mustermann23. Overview pages have been overhauled with a sparse UI, prioritising key information and reducing clutter, whilst the new analytic stats added in this year's edition are given prominence on the player profile to help those who like to take a "Moneyball" approach to their careers.

Mustermann23 Dark v3.03


Quite a few to mention, and I'm sure there will be some that I've missed. If I've inadvertently used something you believe I haven't credited please let me know!

    its a great skin, thank you very much.

    1 thing, it is possible to change the color of the stars? (potential & ability). i'd like to change the color to the original...

    @ramin.ezio - yes it is possible. You'll have to find a sidebar with it in, and use that code accordingly. It's not planned as something that I intend to do as a release, though.

    @Sazzy - you can, similar to the above advice, by pulling it from a skin that you want and putting it into whichever tab you like. I annotate all the xmls so you should be able to follow along.
  • ramin.ezio's avatar
    I will ask my question in the dark skin page as well for the players who may not check the other one.
    I want to ask if it is possible to show the clubs logo in the bottom left corner, instead of the image?

    Is there a way to coustomise the match tablet? i want it to show me pass maps which it doesn't.

    @bjdffbhnikkdhnjklf - as per the comments below, to add instant result follow the instructions in the FAQs
  • bjdffbhnikkdhnjklf's avatar
    Does this have a simulate match button?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @kvarakhameleon - Can you upload a save to something like mediafire and share me the link so I can take a look?
  • kvarakhameleon's avatar
    @gimn85 it's weird then because Benzema is currently the top scorer of La Liga yet his Pizza Chart compared vs other strikers only shows that he loses the ball often and that he has a poor goal output. He played badly vs me, so it looks like the skin is only showing the data vs my team.
  • gimn85's avatar
    @kvarakhameleon - the pizza charts use the regular per90 stats collated by the game. Those don't distinguish based on whether they played a human-controlled team or not, but will only consider competitive games, and can be influenced by detail level of the league.
  • kvarakhameleon's avatar
    should the pizza chart not be showing data for players not on my team? it looks like its only collecting data in games those players have played vs my team. Using the numerical skin.
  • gimn85's avatar
    @ededdie - no it isn't. The skin is built around the graphical approach.
  • ededdie's avatar
    Thanks for the great skin! Is it possible to use the game editor to change the player attributes? I can't change it. tnx

    Re: the penalty - I've not had this issue reported before (and boy have I seen a lot of penalties conceded this season). If it occurs again, can you access preferences and change skin by pressing Shift + P. If so, does changing skin then resolve the issue?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @Wezco - the training rating is deliberately omitted, as I believe it to be far too accurate (when was the last time you were rating an 8.7 out of 10 for your work over the last week). That said, the text string does essentially indicate if they are above the threshold for the usual praise everyone strategy.

    @mcswifty - instructions for adding instant result are in the FAQs.
  • mcswifty's avatar
    Two things.
    It appears that my matches freeze, without the possibility to resume, when a penalty is awarded for some weird reason.

    And I would LOVE an option for instant result.
  • Wezco's avatar
    Love the praise training button on the main player page, but cant find the training rating... Its not there?
  • gimn85's avatar
    @fotisk7 - if you want to change the "blank" image for when there isn't a stadium pack downloaded, you'll need to put two copies of the image you want in graphics/pictures folder (rename it to match the name of the images already there)

    @Mr.Volskiy - same as any other skin - you either need to check the season stats at the bottom of the profile, or go to the Reports -> Stats page.
  • Mr.Volskiy's avatar
    What should I do if I want to see the Ucl stats and so on of my players? Not only for scouting, but also to evaluate the stats in other tournaments of my players?
  • fotisk7's avatar
    Anyone knows how to change the picture of the stadium because is a stadium pack? I tried with FMXL but didnt work as there is no option for stadiums
  • gimn85's avatar
  • eduardo.bootan's avatar
    Any way I can put up instant result in this skin? thanks!
  • Blue Syrius's avatar
    I know this website for years and did download tons of stuff, i just opened a new account just to post a comment here. Your work is amazing, FM is so much more enjoyable thanks to your skin, they should consider to hire you. Many thanks i love your art
  • gimn85's avatar
    @Vxxvitra - same as other skins.
    Extract the one you want into your Football Manager 2023/Skins folder, go to preferences, select the chosen skin from the drop down and click Confirm.

    I would advise also unchecking "Use caching to decrease page load times" and check "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences" when you initially load the skin. Once you've loaded the skin, you can go back into preferences and reverse those changes.
