Applying the skin:

To select the skin in game you will need to:
  • load the game, and go into the preferences -> Display and Sound menu
  • untick ‘Use Skin Cache’ and tick ‘Always Reload Skin On Confirm’ then select confirm and
  • select the skin from the drop down menu, select confirm again and your new skin should now display. (Once the skin is loaded you can turn the skin cache back on and untick the Always Reload button.)

Please note the above skin is provided as is, it is nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.


This skin is created by Murray from the official SI forums.
Thanks go to Radestock for his background selector code.
