FM 2015 Skins - FM15 Unofficial Dark Skin By DAZS8
Made possible by using the superb work of the following:
  • Artdekdok
  • Bergkamp
  • Michael Murray
  • SantiagoP
  • Wannachupbrew
If I have forgotten anyone I apologize.

  • The best panels from Artdekdok, Wannachupbrew, Michael Murray and Bergkamp
  • Titelebars and sidebars by SantIagoP
  • Settings, colours, panels, icons, main menu by DazS8

All put together by yours truly.


This is a dark skin.
No, I personally will not make a light version.
No, I will not change any part of the skin for people's personal preferences.
Any person named as a contributor has the right to edit the skin and release as they see fit as long as the skin remains property of the FM Community.
All other contributors must also be named.

The skin is made in 1920 x 1080 resolution on a large screen. If using smaller screens or lower resolution the results will differ from the images above. In other words you will not see all the panels as in the pics below.

This skin is made for FM regular career mode, NOT FMC.
I have and never will play the FMC version so have no interest in making anything for something I will never use.


Installation instructions

Step 1

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

Step 2

Place the 2 extracted folders into your skins folder:
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\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 "FM15 Unofficial Dark Skin" as option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
Use the Clear Cache button, then 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.

    The skin was released all the way back in November and has not been touched/updated since.
    Sorry but no updates will be done for this skin as other skins have long since replaced it.

    Just like the comment below says, when clicking the "back" button to return to the inbox when dealing with the various news items, the inbox progresses to the next new item in the list instead of remaining on the same item. All other skins I've used remain on the same news item when I click the "back" button to return to the inbox. This is annoying when trying to deal with multiple aspects of a single news item, such as when dealing with players your assistant manager reports as progressing poorly in training. I like to deal with the situation from the inbox, clicking on each player to assess and maybe warn him, then click back and deal with the next player. However, like I said, every time I click back the inbox goes to the next new item, progressing further and further up the list.

    If someone who knows about FM skinning could figure a fix I'd be very grateful. I'd be happy to edit the files myself if I know what needs changing, if indeed it can be fixed at all. I just don't know. Please help!

  • coastport's avatar
    great skin, however how do I get the stadiums to show in the team home page ?

    @Stam: I posted some screens to show the inproper working with other faces besides cut-outs. Or perhaps it's a screen resolution issue.

    Could be usefull to Dasz8 and it will save a lot of questions in this topic.

    The Scorpio v1.51 is supposed to support DF11 although it ain't working proper atm.
    It will be sorted this week by wannachupbrew.

    Edit: See the post of Wannachupbrew below. Thanks for your help chup.
    Take the time you need ;)

    Hey guys DF11 faces only work at 1920x1080 at 100% zoom right now. I put it together in a bit of a rush as I was busy with work. I'll be sorting it out this week for all resolutions and it will be in the next Scorpio release.

    @necjeff: DAZS8 has retired. Scorpio was passed to another author this season. And I think this particular skin was put together in a "as is" state. I mean it's not certain he's willing to update it. Btw, Scorpio v1.51 is supposed to support DF11, there's a screenshot for that.
  • necjeff's avatar
    Weird as I never had a problem with Scorpio skins before.

    Seems the new Scorpio FM15 skins do only support faces measured in standard size (180x180). Larger sized faces don't fit on 'player profile' page.

    Maybe these screens will help :)

    100% full screen play:

    100% windowed play:

    Same problem with Scorpio V1.51 for FM15.

    @Sean Di Rocco: Yes, stadium pics come as a separate download. About not showing your face/logo-packs, it doesn't make sense. I mean you can see they work in the screenshots above. Maybe try "Clear Cache" on Preferences screen, see if that helps.
  • Sean Di Rocco's avatar
    also when i use this skin it dosnt show my face packs & logos.
  • Sean Di Rocco's avatar
    nice skin this guys, one quick question though - do the pictures of the stadium on the team profile page come separately?
    reason I'm asking is I had the scorpio skin and didn't get them.
