Football Manager 2020 Skins - FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 2.2

FM 2020 FLUT skin dark - Version 2.2

Skin for FM 2020 regular career mode and widescreen (1920x1080).

This is the FLUT Skin ("dark" version) for FM20. As usual, the Flut skin is completely full of changes when you compare with the default skin.

For many years I keep trying to edit a skin who can help FM Fans to better enjoy our game.
With the direct or indirect help of many FM players and FM skinners (thank you all) I created many stuff (such as the citypics, the rotating images of stadiums in club overview panel or the back and front kits displayed in player overview panel, just to mention some of the ones I consider most relevant).

Therefore, now, in FLUT Skin you can find the instant result option, the background/opacity selector, compatibility of player picture (in player overview panel) with DF11 and Scope facepacks styles, the animated intro match, front and back kits displaying in player overview panel, compatibilty with citypics and much…much more!!!

And now you can personalize FlutSkin more than ever!!
I included 14 alt folders in this pack. You just need to read the read me file in order to know how you can use them:
1. Alt. for sidebar - alt FM20 FlutSkin sidebar matching club colour (works only with the no hidden sidebar)
This folder is for those who want to use a coloured sidebar according each club colour.
2. Seven alts. for club overview panel - club overview alt1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7
Seven different layout for the club overview panel
3. Alt. for player overview panel layout - player overview alt - flutskin 18
Files for return to the player overview layout I used in FlusSkin 1.8
4. Alt for attributes panel - alt for player overview without background boxes as default and for player profile and player popup without background boxes
5. Alt for player overview panel without CA and PA values
6. Skin without background pictures
An alt client object browser.xml file for those who prefer playing the game with a solid background instead of pictures backgrounds (stadiums, cities, players, etc)
7. Alts for No Hidden Sidebar (the default sidebar) - for light and dark skin
8. Alt for playing with the tactics panel as in the 2.1 version (only displaying the back kit)

The Skin pack also 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!!!

You can download the 2D packs prepared for Flutskin (titlebar and player overview panel). For that you should search for that kits pack elsewhere since the download link in FMScout is down due copyright issues.
However, if you prefer edit your own kits, I also included in the pack a .pdf file explaining how you can edit the kits for Flutskin.

You also can download the stadiums megapack and the citypics released by DAZS8 (thank you, my friend)

Main changes in 2.2 version
- Tactics overview panel (front kits included; position colours changed)
- Instant result in match included
- Text font
- Hidden sidebar
- New alts.
- Tweaks here and there

Once again I would like to thank you to all FM Fans who support my work and also to all skin makers. 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).. If you use a 4K screen with 3840x2160 you can use it in 200% zoom and the skin will works perfectly!!

How to add Flut Skin in FM20

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

Place the "fm2020flutskin_dark" folder here:
Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\skins

  1. Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.
  2. Start FM20 and go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab.
  3. You should see FM 2020 Flut Skin dark - Version 2.2 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.

    Hey Flut, incredible work!! Could I ask a cheeky request favour. I wanted to change the attribute highlighted lines if possible? I wanted to change key to gold and preferable to silver. I'm unsure how to go about changing the colours if it's even possible?
  • vonreichsm's avatar
    Thank you very much Flut and i hope you feel well.
  • Flut's avatar
    Thanks DAZ8, vonreichsm and Doddo. I will relaese the new version today with the new club overview and a new player overview panel.

    Ian: sorry but I don't remember.

    Hi people: what do you think about this new club overview?
  • rza707's avatar

    any idea how to fix this???

    hi Rekoshooter, FoooW and energy1984

    If you are talking about the background boxes, go to settings.xml and change:

    <colour name="unknown attribute background" red="146" green="82" blue="143"/>
    <colour name="low attribute background" red="247" green="121" blue="121"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute background" red="245" green="245" blue="85"/>
    <colour name="good attribute background" red="157" green="217" blue="121" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute background" red="83" green="249" blue="83" />

    If you want to change the values (the number):

    <colour name="low attribute" red="247" green="121" blue="121"/>
    <colour name="normal attribute" red="245" green="245" blue="85"/>
    <colour name="good attribute" red="159" green="220" blue="122" />
    <colour name="excellent attribute" red="83" green="249" blue="83" />

    However using the background boxes the name will be white (that code doesn't work, since in the xml we wrtoe white as colour for number)

    don't forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”. Exit the game and reload it.

    Rekoshooter: as I said several times in this thread (that question was already made several times), the skin slowsdown in certain panels. I believe that occurs because I use some xmls from the last year. However, I don't know what are the xmls responsible. Since finding that xmls will be a hard work and the skin is perfectly playable in spite of that, sorry but I will not work on that.

    nikolaosaek: thanks again :) Regarding your question, I don't intend to work on the sidebar colour. Sorry....
  • energy1984's avatar
    @DexterHovis, When you change the options by selecting your favorites, after confirming it doesn't work
  • FoooW's avatar
    I apologize to everyone I'm bored. but if anyone could explain step by step how to change the color attributes on this skin.
  • Rekoshooter's avatar
    In settings file of the Skin
  • FoooW's avatar
    thanks for the reply, however, it can't load at all, new attribute colors, for other skins this method works.
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    FoooW, Rekoshooter, energy1984 the attribute numbers and colurs are not adjusted within Flut's skinyou need to go to Preferences>>Advanced>>Custom Skin Colour>>Skin Colours where you can adjust your threshold values for excellent, good and average and also change the attribute colours.
  • FoooW's avatar
    . How to change player attributes colour? plsss some answeer skin is best
  • nikolaosaek's avatar
    Hi flut and again good work man. Did you do something about the sidebar color same at teams color?
  • Rekoshooter's avatar
    And second question. How to change player attributes colour?
  • Rekoshooter's avatar

    When I switch between different categories (tactics, squad, finance...etc) it takes several seconds to switch to a category needed. Your skin requires more RAM or what? Because in other skins I did not notice such a problem.
  • energy1984's avatar
    Hi Flut, i like your skin but how can i do for change attribute colours ? I followed the basic instructions, but changing colors in the settings then they don't change
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi mantorras: yes. I've notice that in some screens. However, I don't know yet what are the files responsible for that.

    Hi theoffy: thanks :)
  • theoffy's avatar
    Just a big thanks for the skin and your efforts keeping working.
  • mantorras77's avatar
