TCS FM17 Preview


Closing Notes:
So my time with FM 17 has come to an end! It has been an amazing year for TCS with this version being the best version of the skin ever released, as well as accumulating over 35,000 downloads over the course of the year, blows my mind considering TCS was started in 2015 as a personal project. I'd like to thank every single person who has downloaded the skin over the past two years, every person who's offered feedback, positive or negative as this allowed me to grow as a skinner and has provided a source of inspiration, when not only my FM time gets low, but also something to distract myself when my personal life gets low, it truly means a lot. Since we're being honest atm, I'm not entirely too sure of an FM 18 release. I've not hidden the fact that I'm not happy with the direction Football Manager is going, and outside of skinning 90% of the time spent with FM17 has been filled with frustration, and simply not fun. Another reason that TCS 2018 may not be getting released is monetary. I won't go into too much detail, but funds are tight at the moment, hence why I'm opening donations. Provided I don't need them for something urgent, any donations made will go towards FM 18; you can find a link below if you want to help out, or even just say thank you,

  • saint-simon97's avatar
    Do you have any club overview with the city pics on it?

    The club overview screen isn't dealing well with the trophy section either in my computer.
  • jermia93's avatar
    why it's different from the screenshots above, i run 1366x768
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    In match game the overview is SOOO small. Even the logos are so small and ther is not an option at other boxes for overview. Is ther a way I can make the logos bigger, and maybe the hole overviw bigger?
  • joker red's avatar
    @bluestillidie00-is there anyway of changing/add it else where or on a new client object, tried but with out success.
  • talesvin's avatar
    Is there any guide to modify the skin? the 1.4 update took away the polygon from the profile skin and i liked the 1.3 club overview more also. So, there's a way for me to add the club overview from 1.3 and the polygon on the profile skin?
  • bluestillidie00's avatar
    @joker red The continue button is in the client object browser, that's why it breaks.
  • joker red's avatar
    @ bluestillide00-Yes, I use the same client object browers that works all ok on other skins but when i use it on this skin and over write the normal one I keep losing the continue button. quite like the look of this skin but I don't like the normal size sidebar, i normally have hidden
    or small
  • bluestillidie00's avatar
    @PaddysMad - I mention that on my blog. "There’s also an experimental Website panel which can be activated by renaming the “competition-” folder to just “competition”. It’s something I spent a few hours working on, unfortunately it’s a bit inconsistent in how it works, so I’ve deactivated it but if you want to activate, it’s easy to do."

    @joker red - Are you editing the client object browser?

    @nikolaosaek - The results thing has been fixed in the next update.

    When I see friendly results or league results i cant see the scores. The background and also the numbers are both white. Can I change this?
  • joker red's avatar
    I notice you have small side bar but every time I change it to small or auto hide I lose the continue button, Any help/advice on sorting this?
  • PaddysMad's avatar
    Why isnt the BT Sport news thing showing on mine its just basic news.
  • bluestillidie00's avatar
    @cristobalite Yeah I know that's an issue, delete the 'Result' folder in "TCS 2017 v1.4\graphics\boxes\custom"
  • cristobalite's avatar

  • Si Supersonic's avatar
    Love This Skin, Spot on :)Thanks
  • willaustin_1's avatar
    I've installed the skin, however the wriiting for the tabs on the left side is still there (squad, scedule, under 23's etc.) so things on the right aren't there, I'm playing on laptop in 1336x768 resolution.
  • fowler73's avatar
    how to install this skin ? i copied to skin folder and not appear
  • IanD79's avatar
    Hey does anyone know how to download skins on to laptop? I've tried tutorials on YouTube but doesn't work for me. Do you need a high graphics card for this to work?
  • mayday's avatar
    @bluestillidie00 thanks, all is done, now im displaying kits rather than logo.
    I really like this update V1.3, especially the new fonts and the square kit behind the player photo.
    Is there a way i can contact you because I have 2 more things to ask you?
    1)How can i reamove the team logo in the middle of the screen? (i wish to see just a plain background)
    2)In the player profile screen (like Chadli) I dont see the right square showing the pitch with the position where he can play. Since I m using the new version i dont see it anymore. How can i put back or choose a view like this one for Chadli?
