Football Manager 2019 Skins - FM 2019 FLUT skin light - Version 1.8

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:

- Match inbetween highlights full panel (tweaked)
- Manager home (top left box changed)
- Match mid match panel (tweaked)
- Tactics overview panel (new tabs included)

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.7 are in:
- Game processing panel (Stats logo replaced by Breaking News Text which colour will change according the team colours and league colours)
- 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)
- Inbox welcome (tweaked)
- Non player profile (name tweaked; nation logo included)
- League tables (non-capitalized club names)
- Club overview panel (new results panel; new key employees panel; new information panel and new training panel included in the drop down arrows; statistics panel tweaked)
- Home manager (new picture option included)
- Manager Profile (tweaked)
- Match titlebar (competition logo included; club names with bigger space)
- Person/Player information panel (new tab with many information included)
- Nation overview panel (club logos in the players table included; manager name tweaked)

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.6 are in:
- Player Overview Panel (top horizontal boxes changed, including the player picture boxes; new option of player picture added)
- 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:
- Player Overview Panel (kit name tweaked; left and right foot icon coloured according the foot accuracy; some hidden attributes included in the top right box)
- Home manager panel tweaked (training box)
- Training overview panel (various boxes tweaked)

Besides fixed reported bugs and also tweaks here and there, the major Changes of FlutSkin 1.4 are in:

- Player overview panel (Flut club colour option as player picture background added; some small tweaks)
- New tactics squad view
- Match tactics
- Home manager panel tweaked (new biography tab included, “new” confidence board and “new” training panel)

Besides fixed bugs and tweaks here and there, the major Changes in FlutSkin light 1.1 are in:
- Club overview panel (confidence information panel changed)
- Match team talk (new information included)
- Titlebar (manager change button 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.

    Could you tell me Which file to edit to try to fix it and make changes to test it.

    Hi panzerM: :)
  • panzerM's avatar
    You are a genius ! It works now. I messed up with (i thought)untouched version of 1.1 and after re-downloading, medical centre is fine. Also files below did the job. Now i can rest in peace. Thanks
  • Flut's avatar
    panzerM: I tested in my game and it seems is okay…Regarding the sidebar, use this files

    pmpou: That problem is due your screen resolution.

    panel problem
    [img]<img src="" alt="image" border="0">[/img]
  • panzerM's avatar
    Hi FLUT, thanks for update, but unless i messed up something, MEDICAL CENTRE in NO HIDDEN sidebar version won't open at all
    Also i downloaded menubar file you posted earlier, replaced the oryginal folder, but can't make colured fonts, only icons
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi yanzhihh: I already sent you a PM
  • yanzhihh928's avatar
    1 You choose vacation, the agenda above has a background color, the light version should be blue
    The light is still red, just like the balck version.
    The red above should be changed to blue.
    2 How can I make the sidebar and the search bar above the same color?
    I didn't find your file.
  • yanzhihh928's avatar
    Which file do you use?
    Can the sidebar be the same color as the search bar?
  • Flut's avatar
    Thanks selcukklnc and pmpou: I already fixed that bug.

    Hi panzer: I don't know why in your game that weird thing happens (in my game that bug regarding the animated kits is okay - alternating between the default kits and the front kits from flutskin)

    Regarding side bar, please take a look on my answer, also to nikolaosaek for DARK skin sidebar. I put there a link with the files required to fix the fonts colour.
    Regarding the free space, I don't know why it happens. However, try the following: open the sidebar menu table.xml and delete the code (I think it will be fix the problem; however, the icons will displayed starting from the top left corner

    <container default_height="72">

    change the code

    <container default_height="72">


    <container class="bordered_box" default_height="72">

    Regarding the last question...I don't know why it happens but maybe the picture have the extension .JPG or .PNG , change it for .jpg or ,png because the game don't read the capitalized file extensions).

    Flut, I put a screenshot but I think you missed it. You can view the problem from that;
  • panzerM's avatar
    FLUT: kits keep disapearing and apearing(accelerated on picture)- i dont think its intended feature
    with sidebar we are nearly there- just fonts and missing top corner. i added how it looks in 2017 version 1920x1200
    This is GENERAL QUESTION as i tested it wth other custom skins with the same result. For better immersion i add some missing pictures in obscure leagues i manage, but on some clubs this dont work in fm 2019.its just 2-3 stadiums of 20, Any ideas why? I use only real name fix, no data changes
  • Flut's avatar
    Luka Modric: thanks!!!!

    panzerM: regarding the sidebar, take a look on my answer, also to nikolaosaek for DARK skin sidebar
    what is the problem here?
    Here I think I already fix that problem and it will be included in the next release of the skin.

    DexterHovis and Russian_Accent: thanks!!! The bug you report will be fixed in the next release. However if you want to solve it now look at my last block of answers. I explain there (for selcukklnc) how you should do to fix the problem.

    selcukklnc: please put a screenshot in order I can see in what precise panel is the problem…
  • Russian_Accent's avatar
    Hi, Flut. First of all thanks a lot for your great work. Using ligt skin since fm 15 i belive. Have a litle problem this time. Any tips?
  • Luka Modric's avatar
    Thank you Flut.
    light skin The best.
  • panzerM's avatar
    Thanks For quick response! There is my story in pictures:
    After applying changes from below
    After applying instructions u gave to nikolaosaek for DARK skin sidebar colour and which i also prefer
    nearly there, but
    so we are going in the right direction and i belive soon this great skin will be perfect as it was in FM2017 -my previous FM adventure!
    There is couple minor findings
    Take your time and keep great work!!!
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    Flut. Many thanks for the light skin once again. I have notice one problem. In the panel in the middle of the player general profile screen it says "left foot" and "right foot" for each player but does give any more information about the players ability with either foot. This can be seen in the screen shot of Soares that you posted at the top of the page.

    Contract panel problem
  • Flut's avatar
    DAZS8: Thank you for your support as always!!

    Bandes: thanks. Regarding your problem I think DAZS8 already answer you.

    selcukklnc: thanks for reporting.
    1.I already fixed it. If you want to fix it, go to player personal details panel1.xml and change the code

    <!-- foot -->
    <layout class="arrange_horizontal_attachment" layout="-1,1,-1" offset="0" gap="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="10" apply_to_children="true" />


    <!-- foot -->
    <layout class="arrange_horizontal_attachment" layout="-1,1,-1" offset="0" gap="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" apply_to_children="true" />

    2.Regarding the contract panel, please show me a screenshot.

    panzerM: thanks!! Regarding your questions:
    1.Go to sidebar menu table.xml and try to change
    <container class="bordered_box" id="colm" appearance="boxes/flut/sb1" red_replacement="dark accent" blue_replacement="black">


    <container class="bordered_box" id="colm" appearance="boxes/custom/interface/flut match/paper" red_replacement="dark accent" blue_replacement="black">

    2.Thanks for reporting. I already fixed it. However if you want to fix that problem with white nickname text, go to club overview details9.xml and change
    <widget class="text" spec="text" style="bold" id="TCnV" mode="1" size="14" colour="white" alignment="centre" >
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="TCnn" />


    <widget class="text" spec="text" style="bold" id="TCnV" mode="1" size="14" colour="text" alignment="centre" >
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="TCnn" />
    3.This problem is due your screen resolution…and by the fact that you are playing with the sidebar extended (and not with icons only)
    4.I think didn’t understand that one….but if so and you are talking about the sidebar changing according each club colour, the skin don’t have the sidebar matching with the clubs colours. For that you need to edit sidebar menu table.xml

    La Doce: thanks!!! There is no problem in your game. In fact that “problem” is due the fact that you don’t have the other picture of stadium, since in that grey picture another different picture of your stadium should be displayed. I think if you download the megapack I refer in the skin presentation test, the problem will be solved.

    Doddo04 and MackbossFM: thanks for your support. In fact I allways prefer the light skin too. This year I started by the dark skin since last year I noticed that most of people prefer it….
