    To install...

    Extract all contents to

    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\skins

    Then within FM17, go to 'Preferences' and change your skin to your desired one e.g. 'Default with Tactics Kits - Dark'.

    Finally, again within FM17, go to 'Preferences' > 'Interface'.

    Uncheck 'Use caching to decrease page loading times'.


    Check 'Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences'.

    Press 'Confirm'.

    I hope this helps.

    the thing is: there's no base skin folder
    Am I supposed to use that extractor tool?

    Just copy and paste the graphics and panel folder into the base skin.
