FM 2019 FLUT skin light - Version 1.8

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

This is the FLUTSKIN – Light Version 1.8 for FM 2019.

This is the FlutSkin for FM19. I tried to keep it similar to the latest version of Flutskin for FM18. Thus, I will not present you all changes regarding the default skin for FM19 but there are many of them. If you don't know FlutSkin yet, try it. I think you will not be disappointed.

The Skin pack includes:
1. “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.
2. Background maps for confederations, also made by brian-q. Thank you brian by your great work and for your collaboration!!!
3. A pack with a new pitch textures for 3D match, edited by myself (a little bit less darker than the last pack)
4. A mod for regular sidebar (not hidden sidebar)
5. A mod for regular sidebar, coloured according the club colour

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.8 are in:

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.7 are in:

- Leagues in focus panel (5 tabs added; now you can easily place your league tables according your taste and you can quickly view the one you want without need to use the drop down arrows)
- Add manager profile (tweaked)

- Club overview panel
- Titlebar and match titlebar (new fonts added)

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.5 are in:

- Match team talk (new information included)

- Tactics panel ("new" pitch)

Thus, this skin version has the same changes as the Dark version 1.1. However, this version of Light Skin have additional changes (since almost all panels were edited). The major are:
- Training overview panel (new panels added)
- Tactics panel (now including the player pics)
- Transparent sidebar
- Non player comparison (adjusted for DF11)

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!!

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, the pitch textures addon and the regular and coloured sidebar. 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 - SEASON 2018/19 - 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

If you want to download the citypics only, DAZS8 released the updated pack 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).

Place the "fm2019flutskin_light" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM19 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2019 Flut Skin light - Version 1.8 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.

    R4tb3lly: I already answered you in the chat.

    Hi MackBoss and selcukklnc: Sorry. My bad, is “cos8”

    Hi panzer: Thanks for reporting.
    The first bug is already solved.

    Regarding the other questions:

    1. I don’t know if is possible. However I don’t know how to do it (the team formation panel)

    2. I tried a few years ago to make the name of the club to be displayed in the body language panel…however I couldn’t make it work.

    3. Regarding the other screenshot (that one with the grey picture above the pivotal match…I don’t know if is okay. When (if) that panel will be displayed in my game I will take a look on it…
  • R4tb3lly's avatar
    I can't seem to get it to work, it's not showing up in my skin drop down. Someone help!
  • selcukklnc's avatar
    Flut, the problem is still going on. There is no "cosB" in player overview panel; please can you suggest a solution.

    This is very annoying and I cant even play a game like that.
  • panzerM's avatar
    a little picture to investigate
    Is it what it supposed to be?
  • panzerM's avatar
    Hi FLUT. Just a minor issue in my v.1.6

    And questions: is there any possibility to reverse away team formation in match screen so both teams face each other. Also 'team stats' panel is fixed in the same window in every game(home and away)- is there a way to do the same with 'body language' panels so player and opponent teams 'body language' stays in the same window regardless home or away fixture.

    Hi flut,
    I have the same problem. I have in that panel the position of the player in the pitch, but when i watch every player, the first ones go well but when I watch the next ones (ten o r eleven next), change the information of that panel and always show PLANS...
    And I try to do in the player overview panel.xml what you explain in the other post but i can't find "cosB", and I don't know how fix it...
    Thank you flut....
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi selcukklnc: regarding the screenshot, in my game is okay but you can try the following. Go to player overview panel.xml and change

    <container class="client_object_viewer_selector_panel" file="client object viewer selector1" id="cosB" save_session_state="true" default_width="-1" priority="1">


    <container class="client_object_viewer_selector_panel" file="client object viewer selector1" id="cosX" save_session_state="true" default_width="-1" priority="1">
    Clean the cache and reload the game

    Concerning the file from 1.5 xml.use this
  • selcukklnc's avatar
    How can I get the 1.5 xml file?

    There is no relationship between cache and my problem. I want to see the positions tab at the red box instead of plans tab.

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Roda JC: many thanks

    Hi MackbossFM: ok :)

    Hi selcukklnc: you just have to replace the titlebar search panel.xml and the match title bar.xml using the same xmls from the 1.5 version. Regarding the other problem (I couldn’t open the screenshot), try to clean the cache and reload the game.
  • Roda JC Kerkrade's avatar
    Player panel. Smaller player profile picture is the finishing touch! :)
  • selcukklnc's avatar
    I also want to add. At the positions tab (at the player page), there is always plans tab. I change it from the arrow as positions tab but it changes again and again. It's annoying, how can I change this? You can see the problem from the link;
  • selcukklnc's avatar
    Hi Flut, I want to change the font like MackbossFM.

    Can you help us?
  • MackbossFM's avatar
    Hi flut,
    I've solved by myself, in the titlebar search panel.xml....
    thank you anyway...
  • MackbossFM's avatar
