Football Manager 2017 Skins - Vexillium 17 v1.0 FM17 skin

Ported from FM14, Vexillium is back in it's glory, banners and all!! This heavily modified skin introduces features such as perspective and minimalist style tactical pitches, rosette style backgrounds in the titlebars so you never need a logopack again, instant result button and background selector as well as new player and club overview screens taken from Flutskin and customised to Vexilliums' style and modified to work at smaller resolutions, a whole bunch of original content and much more. Try it now, you wont regret it!!!

Released: 14 Jan 2017

    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\skins\

14/01/17 - v1.0
Initial Release


  • Emil Debski for the original nation and staff overview panels, the signature font and the BBC news panel and for inspiration.
  • Flut for basic panel layout for new prematch lineups and player/club overview.
  • pikawa for the coding basis of the match titlebar.
Not to mention the COUNTLESS amount of people who have helped me with skinning over the years, without you guys this skin would simply not exist.

If you discover any bugs in the skin or have any suggestions on how to improve it, please leave a comment down below.

    Hi Jellico73.
    My apologize for not explaining wich cache I was refering to. My bad
    Glad everything is working fine now :D
  • Jellico73's avatar
    Apologies, I misunderstood what cache I was deleting. I thought you were referring to the 'Clear Cache' Option, not the folder in AppData/Local/Sports Interactive. I deleted that folder and so far everything looks great.

  • Jellico73's avatar
    Yes, but the problem still persists.
  • Apocalipsus's avatar
    Hi Jellico73. Have you tried deleting the cache of the game?
  • Jellico73's avatar
    And a couple more examples:

    I like this skin alot, but have come across a couple of minor graphics issues, I am not sure if they are something on my end or not.

    Substitution background
    player notification

    Looks like the graphic in the background is off, is it something on my end?

    Thanks for the good work!

    Hi alexpik2002. I belive I found a workaround for your issue. Do you have anything to edit xml files on a macbook? If so, look for the file "club overview panel.xml" inside the "\skins\Vexillium17\panels\club" (the place where you paste your skin).
    Now open the file and look for line around 121, should say something like this:
    <widget class="picture" id="flag" height="65" image_alignment="top" scale_picture="false">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="-30" />
    <boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true"/>

    Mess with the inset="-30" a bit (try -25 or so). If it works like in windows, you can do it with the game open, save the file and go back to the game, change to a diferent panel (try looking at the facilities of the club) and back to the club profile.
    If it works fine, the text "ENGLAND" should be a bit up now.

    Hi I like this skin, I do have a question regarding the club overview. Is there anyway I can make the nation flag smaller so that the text fits in the box. I have included the screen as it looks on my macbook pro.

    Hey apocalipsus,
    The first image is definately a bug due to the fact the panel resizes only to cut-out height, i will have to add an extra file as a mod to fix that in next update. I will also include an extra panel in the player overview as a mod for you. Thanks for the feedback :)
  • Apocalipsus's avatar
    I'm sorry, I realised it should be easier to explain my issues with pictures so here they go:
    - Cut player image:

    - Extra panel here:

    (this way more info can be shown)

    I goto say, this is one of the best skins I've played with. I really enjoy it. It is almost perfect for me. Im playing at 1920x1080 100% scale.
    Even so, there are a few issues I found (so far):

    - When I get an information on my mailbox about a "player" beeing available to sign (the one that says "agent x as informed player y is transfer listed and is available ). That player picture (i'm using DF11 faces) is cut off. I'll try to post a picture later.

    - Is it possible to add a new panel on the player profile window?. Like spliting the bottom left into 2 panels?
