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.

    @[email protected] They have been relocated to the development center tab. It looks like arrows pointing upward, and should be in the bottom of the bar. From there you can access the teams.

    Best skin by far - but is there a way to prevent this happening when playing in 2k resolution?

    Player profile screen - kit number and badge are weirdly jumbled:

    Club info screen, manager has his name over his face:

    @Flut i found it thanks for the help
  • Flut's avatar
    @fernando: if you have the last version of the skin there is no left logos in the skin folder. Thus you should find it in your logos folder of the game.
  • Fernando_0094's avatar
    @Flut Where can I find it? In the pictures folder?
  • Flut's avatar
    @Fernando: try to remove all the background left logos you have.

    loving the skin as always.However, Staffs nationalities names not showing the full text, fonts bit cut off at the bottom. And is it possible to make staff images bit bigger??

    Seemann87: the clock is there. However, due your screen resolution, the clock is not displayed. You can do the following:

    Remove the information regarding the fixture, stadium, city and date. For that, open match title bar.xml and remove the following piece of code

    <container width="251">
    <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" layout="-1,-1,-1,-1" offset="0" gap="0" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" apply_to_children="true" inset="0" />

    <!--fixture name-->
    <widget class="fixture_name_text" id="Name" style="bold" alignment="centre,can_scale" colour="text" size="9">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="FxNm" />

    <!-- stadium -->
    <widget class="client_object_label" id="namV" style="bold" alignment="centre,can_scale" colour="text" size="9">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="stad" />

    <!-- city -->
    <widget class="city_label" id="namL" alignment="centre;can_scale" colour="text" size="9">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="SctI" />

    <widget class="date_cell" id="date" alignment="centre,can_scale" auto_size="vertical" size="9" colour="text">
    <translation id="format" translation_id="447557" type="use" value="[%date#1-time] kick off on [%date#1-short][COMMENT: string to show the kick off time and date of a fixture]" />
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="fxdt" />

    Hi edgaribeiro: thanks...however, as João Pinto said many years ago, "predictions only at the end of the game". As the two candidates are playing ... everything is still possible. :)
