Football Manager 2018 Skins - CFM Skin 2018 BETA
Released: 24.12.2017 - BETA

CFM Skin 2018 is right now in a BETA phase. I would like to release much more panels/etc. but simply I haven't got enough time for that right now so I mainly focused on layout. You can find just a few panels from CFM Skin 2017. Hopefully in near future I will be able to make MUCH, MUCH more.
Skin should work really good on almost every popular resolution. For now it won't work on 125% zoom...

    ...and one more request to bring the player faces in the pitch on the tactics screen!!
  • MarlonBrando's avatar
    brilliant. exactly what i was looking for! thank you!
    One quick request please: if you can make the citypic and stadiumpic in the club overview panel to match the exact size of 400x240 in the image.
    It;s just that from the vitrex skins we used in the previous years this was the analysis in all our images and now that the windows are larger the pictures are zoomed in and thus not great...
    thanks again!

    @bellidne, no problem!
  • bellidne's avatar
    @pikawa I am an idiot. Sorry. Best skin once again for me and it's only the beta. I will share with my friends and facebook group if ok?
  • pikawa's avatar
    @handyfernandy, try to re-download the skin once more. I will re-upload the files in a second. Got no problems extracting those files so if that won't help I don't know what more I can do...
    @nihat1702, IR button is already in.
    @KingOfTheDivan, great! If You have got any problems on that resolution just let me know. I will try to fix that ASAP.
    @Zen7198, player overview screen coming soon.
    @D_LO_, exactly. A lot of You guys wanted already what I've got so I released CFM Skin. It is not much for now but it is better than nothing. Hopefully a lot more coming out soon...
    @bellidne, there is an option to edit followers in social feed panel. On the left side "Manage" button allows You to edit that. On news page I can't see any button in default skin. Can You show me where it is? No problem. Have fun!
  • Valkyrie's avatar
    Lovely :) I absolutly love it, but can you tell me how to make the side-bar non-transparent ?
  • bellidne's avatar
    Again the best skin for Low resolution. Just one thing after running through for the next update. On the news+social feed the following list on the right has no option where you can edit who you follow. Just a small thing I noticed. Once again thank you Pikawa.
  • D_LO_'s avatar
    Give him a break it's only a provisional download. Just be patient.
  • Zen7198's avatar
    you can increase face player in profile same CFM 2017 ?
  • KingOfTheDivan's avatar
    @pikawa thx for fix, now all is perfect
  • nihat1702's avatar
    hey can u added Instant Results?
  • handyfernandy's avatar
    Sorry, but the files cannot ekstract by win rar. Can you fix it tks bro
  • pikawa's avatar
    @KingOfTheDivan, no it shouldn't be. Re-download the skin. I already deployed a hotfix. For that resolution I highly recommend using small sidebar (can be changed in FM settings). Zoom Out (95% or 85%) is also a nice thing.

    Should the left panel be so big? (I use 1360x768)
