Football Manager 2019 Skins - FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.2

FM 2019 FLUT skin dark - Version 1.2

Skin for FM 2019 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUTSKIN – Dark Version 1.2 for FM 2019.

This skin is compatible with cutout, DF11 and scope facepacks

This is the FlutSkin for FM19. I tried to keep it very similar to the last version of Flutskin for FM18. Thus, I will not present you all changes regarding the default skin for FM19. If you know FlutsKin for FM18 (version 2.1), you also know what you can find in this skin for FM19. If you don't know it yet, try it. I think you will not be disappointed.

The Skin pack includes:
- “round country flags”, “round continents logos” and default logos specially made in metallic style by brian-q from sourtitoutsi. Those graphics will be displayed in the title bar.
- background maps for confederations, also made by brian-q. Thank you brian by your great work and for your collaboration!!!

I also included in the pack, pitch textures for 3D match edited by myself

Once again, thanks to all FM fans (your suggestions keep me trying to make the skin better) and especially to all the fantastic FM skinners whose creativity contributes a lot to produce the FLUTSkin as it is today since FM 2013. Thank you all!!

Major Changes in FlutSkin dark 1.2
- Training overview panel (new panels added)
- Tactics panel (now including the player pics)
- Transparent sidebar
- Non player comparison (adjusted for DF11)

The main changes in 1.1 are:
- Match full preview (save buttons included)
- Inbox press conference panels
- Drop down arrow in the titlebar included (in the left, near the picture)
- Many tweaks in inbox panels and some other tweaks in other panels
- Match preview panel (since some information in the tabbed regarding team analysis stop work after the SI updated, I have to cahnge it)

Changes in updated version.
- Bug regarding contract offer fixed
- Bug regarding the "inbox briefing reminder panel" fixed
- Files for no hidden (default) sidebar included (please read the read me file in order to know how install it)

Released: 11 november, 2018

A special thank you to PATRES10 from fmslovakia 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, 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, sidebar icons only. As a result, some panels won’t work properly in other resolutions (and also in 1920x1080 windowed mode).

In this pack I included a read me file in order to install the skin and the pitch textures addon. I also 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. As soon as possible I will update it for the current season, since the packs are for season 2017/18 yet.

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 FM19

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

    thasnks flut, i will just leave as is, not that big of a deal, just wanted you to know
  • Flut's avatar
    swainf: thanks for reporting. I already fixed that bug and the button will be present in the next release.

    kfnielsen : go to manager upcoming fixture.xml and change the following code (there are two equal pieces of code you should change)

    <record indx="1" alignment="centre" colour="white" size="11" style="bold" appearance="boxes/custom/attributes/paper" >
    <boolean id="use_attribute_colour_as_bg" value="true" />
    <flags id="attribute_value_colour" value="white" />
    <record indx="1" alignment="centre" colour="white" size="11" style="bold">

    nikolaosaek: yes. Use this folder (replace the old one)

    ingey1968: thanks for reporting. I already fixed it. However, if you want, until the next release you just have to delete the manager departure news content panel.xml and reload the game.

    rapdorapper: this is due your screen resolution. The skin only works well I 1920x1080 without zoom.

    dorinperes: Hi. In my game everything is okay. I use the kits for flutskin and they work well as you can see in the titlebar of the skin screenshot on the top of this thread. Don’t forget that this kits folder should be placed in my docs/sportsinteractive/FM19/graphics/logos

    ferranadria: I really don’t know what happens since in my game the citypics are correctly displayed….Try to rename the citypics folder using for instance two “a” in the beginning of the name in order that folder could be the first one to be read by the game…

    Hi all. it happened again.....It starts to be difficult managing all of your requests...
    Thus, Iplease, try to report bugs and not ask for changes regarding your personal taste. And pleeease, put screenshots of the problems in order I can know what are those problems and where they are displayed. I really am not somekind of magician with gifts of divination.....
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    Hi I was wondering if I could get only numbers isteed of boxes around this screenie
  • rapdorapper's avatar
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    It worked this time. But when i change the sidebar's color to team background color the letters remain white. So when i go to a white background or a yellow one the letters are not visible. Can we change that also?
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Do you use 125% zoom? If yes, you will to use an other skin.
  • ingey1968's avatar

    Below you can find the answers of your questions but from now on I not promise to answer all of the new questions and requests. Sorry.

    [email protected]: can you please tell me exactly in what panel (box) that information had last year and not in this version? (please put a screenshot…)

    ingey1968: you can delete it in player additional attributes, player additional attributes1 and player additional attributes2

    Rekoshooter: Hi. You have to use the front kits for Flutskin or delete the following code in the player overview panel.xml (there are 3 pieces of this code in the xml)
    <widget class="picture" id="lftB" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="centre">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="0"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-45" />
    <attachment class="test_setting_attachment" get_setting="show_portraits" default_value="true" set_property="hidn">
    <list id="value">
    <boolean value="false" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" />
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="mbpc"/>
    <integer id="set_property" value="file"/>

    ferranadria: thanks!! You should use the original citypics for FlutSkin and not the pack adapted for Vitrex Skin since this pack don’t have the right config. The citypics are in the Megapack I refer in the skin presentation, however, I think you can download the citypics pack only, sooner, since DAZS8 intend to release it tonight.

    Carlito_85: thanks!! Regarding your questions:
    1. Go to league stage panel views and delete all the following pices of code (there are several) font="fonts/capitals"
    2. I also noticed that and I believe is a “bug” of SI, since I tried with the default skin and it also happens, even activating the option in preferences/interface panel.
    3. I don’t know what happens in your game since in my game that coloured box is not

    loxlo: please put a screenshot because I don’t exactly what are you talking about.

    nikolaosaek. Is not, sorry. Go to sidebar menu table.xml and insert the following code after the line 2 of the code.

    <widget class="picture" id="colb" file="boxes/custom/interface/titlebar/paper" rthr="68">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="tbcl" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="colr" />

    LLovely : thanks. Regarding your question…I really didn’t understand it. Could you please explain a little bit more?

    batiron: thanks!!! Regarding your question, I think if you download the megapack I refer in the skin presentation, the graphics will be displayed as I have in my skin (on the left the citypic and on the right the club stadium.

    vonreichsm: thanks for the support and for the bug report, I will take a look on it when that panel will be displayed in my game.

    One of the things I LOVED about your skin in FM2018, was that I was able to see the amount of mistakes a player had made during a game - when playing the 3d games. I cannot find that in your FM19 skin. Are you planning to bring that feature in, in your FM19 skin please?
  • ingey1968's avatar
    hey flut, i want to remove that ca and pa or whatever from the skin. you dont have to tell me what to delete, i remember that, just let me know which panels for the player page and then the pop up ones please

    How to rid of a picture of a city in a player profile?

    I have CityPics and Vitrex City pics in graphics folder. Deleting one of them - NO result. If only to delete both. But I need city pictures.
  • ferranadria's avatar
    Hello ! Thank you for great work once again. I have just a small issue if you can tell me something about it ... look my screenshot, i don't have city pics anymore. In my folders, it did not move, always at the same location. Could you Help me ?
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    Also forgot to ask, how can I get rid of that big competition-coloured box that goes across the screen in the background of each competition?

    I've outlined the issue in red
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    Hi Flut. Great work as always, loving the skin. Just a couple of questions.

    1. It's been a while, but how would I change the league table so each team is not all in upper case/block caps?

    2. I'm not sure if this is to do with the skin or the game itself, but when I click on a team name it takes me to the first team squad page instead of the club overview. Is there any way I can change this?
  • loxlo's avatar
    How could i change UEFA LOGO on player profile and others? are there a downloadable content to get rid of the UEFA logo
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    The club color still dont change. Did you give me the wright code?
  • LLovely's avatar
    Hi Flut great skin yet again. Is there a way to chance the pitch in this one?
  • batiron's avatar
    Your Skin is amazing! Thank You!!!
    I got 1 question about the graphic.
    How can I show the upper picture (showing in the attached in red circle) which is also the alternative picture in the right top corner in team`s OVERVIEW (which is only showing a common picture currently).
    I suppose those pictures should be put somewhere in the Graphic Folder, but I can figure it out...
    Also, I am using the FMC Stadium megapack (first used in FM17). Where can I download the alternative one?
