    Great Update Wannachupbrew...!!! The best one..!!!
    How can I remove cards of the attribute boxes on the main players profile page?
    I prefer the normal fashion, without cards as background...

    @wannachupbrew: Thanks, that works. I had been changing that but reloading the skin or clearing the cache didn't seem to do anything. It does work though, I just have to back out of the game entirely in order for changes to take effect. Must be because it's changing a graphic colour rather than simply text. *shrugs* Anyway, thanks again. Great skin.

    <colour name="scout card" value="dialog_box_background" />
    <colour name="scout card text" red="204" green="204" blue="204" />

    You should add this (or something similar) to the dark theme. It will get rid of the bright white scouting card.

    Just tested it and the light and dark versions work fine for me. Make sure you are putting all three folders into your skins folder. The light and dark versions will not work without the normal skin installed because they use files from the normal skin.

    I might be blind and can't see the wood for the trees but how can I change the colours of the attribute boxes on the main players profile page?
  • flowkjw's avatar
    My favorite skin is this, thanks to you this update..
    but It has some problem that Dark version has Light color.
    Maybe I think problem is same as ↓↓ 'br0L1x' user.
    Please solve that problem. Thank you.

    @wannachupbrew Good work on the skin, it looks great like always

    However, I have issues with it. I selected it in the menu and my screen is black. Some files are missing in the "Dark" version that are there in the normal version.

    edit: The normal version is working fine, the dark and light ones have these issues

    @wannachupbrew E:\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins

    i put it in skins folder same as always.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    @oksklok: If you want to try it out and send screenshots of anything that's too messed up I can adjust it and send the files to you to test out. It would save me having to test it.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    @oksklok: Nope, sorry. I'm working on a skin for smaller resolutions but it's not ready.
  • oksklok's avatar
    I mean actually I play the game on a laptop with a 1080p screen but the font looks too small. So I changed the display scale to 125%, works similiar as 1366x768. The panels of most of the other skins will get compacted together.
  • oksklok's avatar
    Does the skin support 1366x768 resolution?
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    @Teknik Direktör: Where did you extract the folders?
  • Teknik Direktör's avatar
    When i setup these folders, game did not work starts to wink and i could not reach the main menu. one time i could reach and tried to setup new skin than all i can see was black screen. When i erase these folders,game starts to work proper again.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar

  • Teknik Direktör's avatar

  • ri0t's avatar

  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    @ri0t: It's fixed in the next update. I'm away from home with work right now, so the new update won't be out till Monday.
  • ri0t's avatar
