FM 2016 Skins - OPZ Elite FM16 Skin
After a yearly break, OPZ continues his brilliant dark skin series with OPZ Elite for Football Manager 2016.

There are 2 versions available.
  1. Normal version is for those playing on widescreen (minimum of 1920x1080).
  2. Notebook version (NB). On the notebook version, the titlebar is the original default one (therefore smaller).
If you want the original titlebar or if you're playing on a screen with lower resolution, choose the OPZ Elite 2016 (NB) version.

Released: 24 Nov 2015 - v1.0
Updated: 10 Feb 2016 - v1.5

OPZ Special Thanks:
Original thread in Thai.

How to add the OPZ Elite skin in FM16

  1. Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

  2. Place the "opz_elite2016" and "opz_elite2016NB" folders here:
    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2016\skins
    Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

  3. Start FM16 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
    You should see OPZ Elite 2016 and OPZ Elite 2016 (NB) as options in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
    Hit the Confirm button.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    Nice looking skin...good work..!!
    Only one thing I noticed,
    when you are on contract negotiation screen,the box down right in the bonuses witch shows the money the player asks to get after X games in first team,doesn't show the entire amount(it's too small)
