    Alex ==> Download a dark skin for playing with stadium backgrounds. It ain't possible to display stadium backgrounds in a good bright way in a light coloured skin.

    All text would be hard to read and ruin all the gamefun.

    Full sidebar is not included to the skin. Only small sidebar available.

    I guess you will find a backup full sidebar in Vitrex V2.2 skin (option file inside skin folder)
    Copy the file for full sidebar to the correct directory as written in the Vitrex manual.

    I really like this skin but I prefer to have backgrounds enabled so that you can see the stadiums when clicking on clubs and going to a match. Is there any way to enable this?

    Also is there a way to bring back the full sidebar?

    Thanks Walt.

    The reports seems fine on my screen.
    It might have something to do with your screen resolution.

    Doing a 1920x1080 version is impossible for me.
    I wouldn't even know how to do that. ;)

    I will now return to my main project to release a good update pack by the end of the month for DF11 Facepacks. :)

    It was show the ball. the changes took effect. now on the staff report is not showing the logos. I do not know if it's just mine. the rest is very good. by the way it is great. I am very grateful for the gift to give us.
    with a question. think of doing it to 1920x1080?

    ficou show de bola. as alterações surtiram efeito. agora na parte de relatório de equipe não está aparecendo os logos. não sei se é só com o meu. de resto está muito bom. aliás está ótimo. fico muito agradecido pelo presente a nos dar.
    com uma pergunta.pensa em fazê-la para 1920x1080?

    And where it is possible to change the colour of attributes? I tried to do that in the "config" file of the "settings" folder, but failed.

    @Herrera ==> This version is just few days old.
    I'm currently working at some small fixes wich as written in the posts below.

    New updated version will be available tonight or tomorrow.

  • Herrera's avatar
    very nice skin, love the light skins ;)

    will there be a lot of changes in the new version?

  • necjeff's avatar
    @Rekoshooter => Delete the panel called "Inbox headline panel".

    You'll find it in the following folder:
    Holiday skin / Panels / News item panels

    I will also delete it in the new version wich will be available soon :)

    @Waltencyr => thanks for your kind comment. I will have a look at it and see if i can sort it out.

    the skin is very good. of unparalleled excellence. only has a few things to be arranged. as soon as the selection in the table which will choose the players for selection. also has images that do not seem to link the skin team report. nothing appears or a logo; only the team information. another thing is to put more space on the scoreboard so you can use tens and not units. When the number of a dozen disappears.


    a skin está muito boa. de uma excelência inigualável. só que tem algumas coisinhas para serem arrumadas. como a logo da seleção no quadro onde vai escolher os jogadores para a seleção. também tem as imagens que não parecem no link da skin relatório da equipe. não aparece nada nem um logo; só as informações da equipe. tem outra coisa tem como colocar mais um espaço no placar para que possa utilizar dezenas e não unidades. quando entre uma dezena o número desaparece.

    Is there any tutorial how to make dark versions of the skin? If yes, is it possible to do it myself?
  • necjeff's avatar
    Thanks Rekoshooter.

    No chance for making a dark version.
    Explained it already in yesterday's comment. ;)
  • Rekoshooter's avatar
    Very good skin. It would be excellent if you could do the dark version.
  • necjeff's avatar
    @taz1966 ==> sorry m8. Not planning a dark skin.

    I finished this skin project and will now return to my main project.
    DF11 Facepacks.

    There are plenty of dark skins available on fmscout as well.
    Most skins have a DF11 Facepacks option on board. ;)
  • tazz1966's avatar
    great skin...just wondering if you were doing a dark version of this as well
