FM 2014 Skins - Scorpio v8 skin for FM14
It's been a while, but I am finally back on here at last.
Here is the final version (v8) for FM14 of my Scorpio Skins but there maybe a few little updates as I notice bits I don't like etc.
  • Completely updated
  • New Boxes
  • New Color Scheme
  • New Logo
Since the last version featured on FM Scout it's just about all new.
Take a look and see what you think... the Scorpio skins have been amazingly popular in fact I was amazed at the amount of support they received. So a big thanks to all of you that have downloaded in the past.

Installation instructions

Step 1

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

Step 2

Move the extracted folder(s) into your skins folder:
Win Vista/7/8: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\skins
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\skins
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/skins

Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

Step 3

Start the game and go to Preferences screen and Interface tab.
You should see "Scorpio v8" as option 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.


FURTHER TIPS

Make sure you do not a skin inside a skin....example Scorpio v8 Skin Folder indside another Scorpio v8 Skin Folder
May sound obvious but I have noticed more and more people doing this.

Having further problems got to Preferences then Interface Tab screen and make sure the box USE CACHING TO DECREASE PAGE LOADING TIMES is UNticked
As this stops you installing anything at all.

    Hola! Thanks for a nice-looking skin!

    great skin dazs8 however I cant see the stadiums how can I fix this
  • BLAKE2511's avatar
    Thanks Daz, I don't mean to sound like a pudding, but how would I place custom backgrounds into the skin?
    Its a great skin by the way!!
  • DAZS8's avatar
    Yes it does....has background & opacity selector
    6 Backgrounds plus 10% to 80% opacity choice.
    Can also use custom backgrounds too instead of the 6 included....as you may know I make them as well.

  • BLAKE2511's avatar
    Hi mate, does this skin enable background changes?? I love your work by the way dude!!
  • DAZS8's avatar
    Hi
    Possibly yes.
    Scorpio has been around since FM12....but this year the response has been fantastic.
    I could not have imagined the amount of total downloads,
    this version was by no means the first for FM14 plus there is all the Scorpio Club skins too now.

    Already started work on Main Menu for FM15 version....

  • TheRyanFM's avatar
    Is this going to be coming out on FM15?
  • DAZS8's avatar
    Torrent version....you mean Pirated.
    NO COMMENT
  • stu131212's avatar
    looking for a bit help please, I have a torrent version of the game everything runs fine but when I try apply a skin in game it overlaps certain parts or example if I go into the squad tactics I cant choose quick pick option because the column tabs are on top of it and im not sure how to fix it. Can someone get back to me on how to sort this problem cheers.

    @Shaanxz: The "special skin" instruction was there by accident and has been removed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  • Shaanxz's avatar
    It's still not working, but the funny thing is the one without the skysports elements does, I'll try tomorrow using steam workshop hopefully it will work. Also the special skin folder doesn't work. It worked when I took it out of the special skin folder
  • DAZS8's avatar
    SCORPIO V8
    ALSO AVAILABLE ON STEAM WORKSHOP
    FOR THOSE HAVING DIFFICULTIES INSTALLING

    Or should it be....you dont work for my skin.
    Thousands of downloads....check you have done everything correctly...installed in the right place etc
    Need be send me a screen shot on Facebook of your preferences screen and your folders where you have the skin installed.
    There should only be 1 Scorpio v8 folder NOT one inside another for example.
  • Shaanxz's avatar
    You're skin doesn't work for me. It comes up with a white blank page and sometimes it doesn't appear. Anyone know why??

    Make sure you have it installed correctly/in the right place
    Clear your cache etc.....I make and use all the skins so there is nothing wrong this end its usually a user problem
  • theblade20's avatar
    i can't install this skin. i followed the instructions and when i go to the interface tab on preferences the skin Scorpio v8 doesen't show. any help ?
  • Spanish Red's avatar
    Brilliant skin! Is there a way I can remove the Sky Sports News stuff? I only ask because none of the news in the game is attributed to Sky.

    Thanks
  • DAZS8's avatar
    I have updated the link, now includes all the updates mentioned below.

    Thanks
    DazS8
  • DAZS8's avatar
    I have gone through the skin again as there was still a few traces of the dark red from previous versions.
    Hopefully I have managed to find and update them all to the green color of this new version.
    Added a new font for capital letters to the titles of the panels etc,also found one box that was from the older versions too(with red edges) so that has been updated.
    I will get the link updated soon....
