    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins\

    Excellent skin as always. Can you make the Inbox screen a little more transparent, so it is like the other screens and has the background image visible please. Or is that done intentionally on the dark skin. As your screenshots show all other screens are transparent, the news screen isn't.

    @Scarecrow: Good idea. I'll add that in the next update.

    @wannachupbrew: I don't know if it has been mentioned before, but, in the Club Profile page, like there is a star rating view for Training and Youth facilities, why not adjust and show a similar thing for the new Data Analysis facilities that has been added to this year's fm. It would be good to know how much improvement is needed to reach maximum level in that facility as well.

    @mercuriy_v: Thanks for pointing that out, I'll sort it out for the next update.

    hey. thanks for the panels. there is one small bug in a light skin - how to make this text black?
  • adamm67's avatar
    Excellent content, thank you! I was just wondering if it's possible to add in the attribute boxes, instead of just the numbers? I find it hard to read the numbers without the boxes due to eye issues. Happy to do so myself if someone can perhaps lead me in the right direction. Thanks so much!

    @wolk - do it yourself: "panels" > "client_object" > open "client object browser.xml" in notepad, and delete next 5 lines after "<!-- Logo -->".

    @wannachupbrew: great work :) I made some changes for myself (, but your work is simply the best :)
  • wolk's avatar
    can you delete the logo in the background?

    @stowky: I see what you mean, it's happening for me with Barcelona too. I'll look into it.
  • stowky's avatar
    I have a little problem. In player profile the name and the number of player is with different colour. For Real Madrid's player a number is blue but a player's name is gold. Sorry for my english

    @michel.marsilje: The skin is designed for 1920x1080. I might work on other resolutions later, but 1920x1080 is the priority for me.
  • michel.marsilje's avatar
    My resolution is 1600x900.

    In my "club overview" the "Background club" and "Club History" are a bit small...

    @Dite De Molay: Next Match follows whatever match plan you set up in your tactical briefing and Last Match follows the match plan from the previous match that you played. I don't change any of that stuff, it's all in FM Touch. I just make it available in the regular FM.
  • Dite De Molay's avatar
    @wannachupbrew: Oh yeah my bad.. dont know why I have to quit the game first to dekstop, going back in and load the game then voilaaa the Instant Result button are now there.. its working well and fine now :)

    Oh one more think, I see that option available on Instant Result are different from last year. Last year there are option like win big, settle for draw etc but now only Next Match and Last Match. Why its changing? Or can you give more detail about what it means with Next and Last, thanks for the help :)

    @Dite De Molay: Works fine for me.
  • wannachupbrew's avatar
    @ccurci75: Works for me, you can see the in game editor button in my screenshots
  • Dite De Molay's avatar
    There is no Instant Result button on Dark Version?
  • ccurci75's avatar
    i have a problem. Where is a in-Game Editor? It's missing after Wannachup FM18 Skin installation! Help me!
  • jordanmillward_1's avatar
    @drjonze It should be getting authorised any time now :)
  • drjonze's avatar
    @jordanmillward_1 have you uploaded the dark version? Thanks
  • jordanmillward_1's avatar
    Nevermind, sorted it, and I'll upload a Dark Theme version of the skin now.
  • jordanmillward_1's avatar
    @wannachupbrew Okay, I've found the "client_object_browser.xml" file, but I haven't the foggiest idea what I'd edit to remove the black backgrounds, I've never made skins for FM before.
  • lembergman's avatar
    Please display large photos. DF 11, carlos and other.
  • drjonze's avatar
    @wannachupbrew when you say 'edit the dark skin yourself' do you mean the default dark skin that comes with the game? and where is the client object browser file for it located? I really like this skin but like others I find that white background too bright. It hurts my eyes when I've been up late playing instead of sleeping lol. Thank you!
