Skin for FM 2018 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUTSKIN – Light, Version 1.3 for FM 2018.

Once again, thanks to all FM fans and especially to all of the fantastic FM skinners who contribute a lot to produce the FLUTSkin as it is today since FM 2013.

I think that the bugs (most of them after the SI update) reported or found until now were fixed (except the fade of TV logo since I couldn’t make it work well yet; the role/duty of the other teams in tactics panels also still missing since is a bug from SI) and I tried to include the most of suggestions made by the FM fans.

Major changes in FlutSkin V 1.3.

  • Team Squad Tactics Panel (row height decreased)

Released: 17 December, 2017

A special thank you to all great skinners who indirectly contributed to FLUTSKIN and a very special thank you to PATRES10 for the 2D default kits (especially tailor-made for FlutSkin).

As always FlutSkin is completely free to download and I hope you enjoy it. However, this year, if you want, you can reward my work donating whatever amount you wish. Any small amount is really appreciated.

You can do so by clicking the button down below

Resolution requirements:
This skin was made to work properly in 1920x1080 (1080p) full screen mode. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).


IMPORTANT NOTES:
In this pack I included a TUTORIAL PDF with instructions regarding the structure of your Graphics folder in order to view the citypics, the kits and the competition logos in player details and in title bar.

You can download the 2D kits for displayed in player overview panel and titlebar HERE

You also can download the citypics (and much more…) in the Backgrounds Superpack made by DAZS8 and VULRAK (with some contribution from myself and other FM Fans), HERE

How to add Flut Skin in FM18

Download and extract the .rar file (using either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac).

Place the "fm2018flutskin_light" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM18 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2018 Flut Skin light - Version 1.3 as an option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
  4. Hit the Confirm button.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    Hi,Flut!
    Thanks for replying!
    Kits icon's problem I will try to solve it. If I succeed, I will comment again.
    I believe FLUT Skin is the best one in FM and thanks again for your work!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi pmpou: thanks. I already fixed that bug. It will be included in the next release.

    Hi Mrgolsheep: the bug regarding the role/position I think is a bug of the game after the update, since I tried to look at the default skin and it happens the some thing. Regarding the second one I don't remember what you should do. A few years ago I had the some problem and I solved it but I really don't remember now how to fix it (it concerning an overlay.png or an effect.png...). sorry...
  • Mrgolsheep's avatar
    Hi, Flut! thanks for replying!
    Here is the screenshot, and I have the other problem in this ss.

    Hi Dexter: thanks. The positions are now included. It will be present in the next release.

    Hi Mrgolsheep: could you please put a screenshot?

    Hi pmpou: sorry but I couldn't see your screenshot. Could you please put another?

    Hi,Flut!

  • Mrgolsheep's avatar

    Hi Flut: I can't work out how to post an image but

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DUcwyJ0tgrv3tjKjwOTbMPsFO_sq6PGX/view?usp=sharing

    is a link to a screenshot I've uploaded to my Google Drive.

    The two forwards, for example, are shown as a Defensive Forward and Target Man. Hope this helps.

    Dear all: I noticed that with the new update of SI, the inbox card doesn't work. In order to fix it you just have to go to news_item_panels folder of the skin and delete the following xml (and reload the game)

    inbox content with scouting centre panel.xml
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Dexter: Thanks. Could you please put a screenshot in order I take a lokk and know exactly what is to include?
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    Hi Flut: The scouting report on the next opposition in the standard skin shows the anticipated specific role of each player. Can you please incorporate this in your skin?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Dexter: Thanks!! I already add the half time rating in the full time team talk. Thus in the next version it will be included. Regarding the other problem, if you are talking about the colour of that information in the player bottom boxes...in fact I couldn't found yet how to change that colours....

    Hi Llovely: I can't help because it never happened in my game.

    Hi Bloody: Thanks!!

    1. Concerning the Match intro go to match preview lineups panel and change

    <widget class="client_object_viewer_xml_panel" file="match/lineup intro bundesliga" id="4itr" hidn="true">
    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="all" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="objt" set_property="objt"/>
    </widget>

    by

    <widget class="client_object_viewer_xml_panel" file="match/lineup intro bundesliga" id="4itr" hidn="false">
    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="all" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="objt" set_property="objt"/>
    </widget>

    and

    <widget class="client_object_viewer_xml_panel" file="match/lineup intro flut" id="1itr" hidn="false">
    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="all" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="objt" set_property="objt"/>
    </widget>

    by

    <widget class="client_object_viewer_xml_panel" file="match/lineup intro flut" id="1itr" hidn="true">
    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="all" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="objt" set_property="objt"/>
    </widget>

    However, if you want to see the lineups you need to click on the "flut" button, after the Bundesliga presentation.

    2. Regarding the league overview, it will be fixed in the next release of the skin. Thanks.
  • Bloody's avatar
    And another one: In the league overview, the player stats panel barely shows the players names. Would be nice to see more than 4 letters of their name here. :)
  • Bloody's avatar
    Hi Flut, great skin like every year.
    Is there a way to set a default league for the match intro? I want to always have the Bundesliga graphics during the match intro, is this possible by renaming the default stuff to the Bundesliga intro?
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    One more comment. I can't see the opposition team's roles on any of the screens. Am I missing something?
  • LLovely's avatar
    I have a huge problem . When I use this skin my game crahes every time O.o As soon as I disable it my game works fine . Does anyone know why ??
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    My favorite skin. I use it every year. One comment. In the match team talk panel can you please add the players' half time ratings so it's possible to compare the two halves ratings? If this means one of the existing columns need to removed I, personally, don't see any benefit in having the columns relating to the full season appearing in this panel
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi ooshosboshe: thanks. In the next update it will be fixed and the team formation on the left will be the home team (and on the right the away team).
  • ooshosboshe's avatar
    Hi Flut,

    Great update once again! But one thing, do you plan on continuing to update the panels during the highlights? it's only a slight annoyance, but you have to keep changing the formation panels for each team around depending if you're playing at home or away. For example if you're playing at home, your formation will show on the left, but when you play away it doesn't automatically switch to the right, it stays on the left. It just means you have to change it pretty much every game.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi vonreichsm: I don't know how to do it since if we delete the code, as you said, the boxes of two teams will be not displayed.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi Flut. To 3. The player picture to the right is simple. I tried and it works fine for me if i set the 13 to 40:



    Now the only thing i need is to delete the opponent roles and duty. Could you say me how? I delete:

    <!--role/duty-->
    <record class="position_role_duty_popup_button_mini"
    entity_layout_id="it04" id="rodu"
    size="small"
    alignment="left, can_scale"
    appearance="buttons/custom/tactics/role picker mini/button"
    secondary_icon="icons/custom/misc/small down"/>

    but than my role and duty are deleted too.
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi Flut,

    thank you very much. To point 3, i don´t want to delete the player picture. Sorry that you understand it so. I want to delete the player role of the opponent team. I don´t want see that they play with a winger or so on.
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi vonreichsm:
    1. For the search use this (put it in the game folder of the skin - inside the panels folder). You also can put it in the dark skin.

    [url= https://mega.nz/#!TpVEBSwT!mPPAdUTH0PmEbG8ylupgfjcpis8C8tOknwcVEFy7G1o]DOWNLOAD[/url]

    2. For last eleven increase the value 16 in the next code in tactics icon preview info panel8

    <!-- Player picture -->
    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true" >
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="16,0,0,0" />
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="objt"/>
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt"/>
    </record>
    </widget>

    3. For delete the player picture in match intro, delete the following code in tactics icon info panel overview6

    <widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true" image_alignment="right,bottom">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="13,0,50,0" />

    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="objt"/>
    <integer id="set_property" value="objt"/>
    </record>
    </widget>

    But if you want to move the players faces in order to adjust the place, change (by try and error) the values in
    inset="13,0,50,0"

    Don’t Forget when you change that values the face will be move to the left, right, top and down but also the size of the face will be bigger or smaller (that’s why is so difficult to adjust the place for diferente tactics used…)


    4. The kits (to the best of my knowledge) can’t be moved using that xml (I tried a lot without success). That’s why we have to move the player pics instead of the kits….

    5. I also couldn’t find how to change the font colour of the positions yet (that’s also why I didn’t changed yet…)
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Hi Flut, sorry for the next post.
    How could i move the kits in the pre match panel a little bit to the left, so that i can see the faces?

  • vonreichsm's avatar
    And third: I´m wondering why i can see the opponent position in the pre match panel. Could i delete it so that i can´t see that the opponent play with a "Torjäger zentral"? And if you are looking at the panel, the colour of the roles of my player. I can´t read it realy well. Where can i change the colour?
