FM 2015 Skins - Vitrex MMXV skin for FM15



Vitrex MMXV

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!

Cut and paste the extracted folder "vitrex2015" to:
Win Vista/Win 7/Win 8: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins
Win 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins

Start the game and go to Preferences screen and Interface tab.
You should see "VitrexMMXV" as option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
Use the Clear Cache button, then hit the Confirm button.

  • soccercentric's avatar
    hey great skin...i make a lot of custom main menus (intro screens) can you advise me how i can change the default font and if possible its colour?
  • shawey99's avatar
    ive been looking for days momaoo but cant seem to find the code needed to adjust the df11 pictures to size, really annoying as I think this is the best skin to date.. just cant use it without the df11 facepack :(
  • DevilKeks's avatar
    Will you update the skin to be able to have DF11 facepack and this skin?
  • mayday's avatar
    Hi, very nice skin, with nice details, like the shirt behind the face image and the name written like a signature below and the match's ticket.

    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?

    XML parsing error. Can anyone help??
  • tottiman1's avatar
    How do you customize all the things like it says? Thanks. love the skin.
  • EmilDebski's avatar
    Hi guys.

    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.

    Hmmm, skin is working just fine for me with normal unzip into my skins folder.

    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.

    My game doesnt recognise the file for some reason. I used other skins before like alavanja 15 and all worked. but with this one when i go to preference interface i dont see it. and yes its in the skin folder. any ideas?
  • BKarchitect's avatar
    Very, very stylish but I second that I can't use because it is not DF11 compatible. If you make a version for that facepack, I will definitely look into your skin. Love your style!
  • niklas1992's avatar
    How do you get pictures of the stadiums? Like the small picture of the Emirates? :)
  • momaoo's avatar
    Great job but dlf11 player facepack aint working heads are cut by third can you fix it,look
