Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you me and my friend Emil's new skin Vitrex MMXV: A stylish, dark skin for FMer's playing on 1920x1080 resolution, adding loads of nice visual and interface tweaks, making the game even more enjoyable.
The skin is named after the two latin words victorem and rex, with a twist, the first one meaning winner/champion and the latter lion. MMXV is the year 2015.
We want to thank DazS8, michaeltmurrayuk, wannchupbrew, Drakestone, theBantams, ArtDekDok and wkdsoul for adding to this skin in one or the other way (sorry if we forgot someone, and if so, please let us know).
Hope you all enjoy!

I have only 2 question:
-is there a chance you can explain me how to re-size the kits behind the team's name during the match in the summary?
I believe your size is 220*220, but I would like a bit smaller, like the old FM.
-The main background color is dark grey, how can i change it with a dark blue?
Thanks for the kind words, glad you enjoy the work.
I personally don't think many facepacks would work well with the skins showing the kit behind the face better than the cut-out ones, so i don't plan to make another version. But it is quite easy to make the panel tell the facepack photos to be scaled so they fit inrt the skin, instead of being cut in half like on the screenshot posted by mamaoo.
Btw, I wanted to use this skin so bad that I changed from the DF11 faces to the standard cutout faces megapack. I don't regret it - I can't emphasize enough how stylish and customizable this skin is. Lots of great little touches. FANTASTIC job to all involved.
