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.

    Hello. I have a problem. When i score or opponent scores, the goal panel doesnt show up in the top. What should i do? Nice skin btw.
  • Uncle Sam's avatar
    Flut, great work of course. However, when I go to the Staff Overview screen I can see the ratio where it tells me how many coaches I have against how many coaches the board would allow me to have:

    FYI I am using the the version with the default tree menu
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    Thanks a lot Flut.

    @jbot27: That will likely be a kit issue, not a skin issue.

    - Look in the editor, or the in-game editor and see if the home kit has a year applied to it. If it does, remove the year and leave it blank
    - If it doesn't have a specific year applied, look at the number value of the shirt in the editor or in-game editor. The number should be zero but if it's not showing up in your game I'd imagine the number might be set to 1

    Just a note on that, if you use the official editor rather than the in-game editor, the changes won't show up unless you start a new save.

    anyone have issue with 2d kits not shown the home kit all other kits are fine away and third

    Hi Carlito: go to transfer panel division.xml

    (line 12)
    <container class="main_subtle_box" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper" navigation_container="true">


    <container class="main_subtle_box" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper12" navigation_container="true">

    (line 88)
    <container class="main_box" appearance="boxes/subsection/standard/paper72" id="trtt" force_title_borders="true" navigation_container="true">
    <container class="main_box" appearance="boxes/subsection/standard/paper71" id="trtt" force_title_borders="true" navigation_container="true">

    Hi Andi: in my game everything is oaky. Thus, I can't help you. Try to clear the cache, exit the game, keep only this skin in the skins folder of the game and reload the game.

    Hi edgaribeiro: delete the file non player attributes panel.xml
  • edgaribeiro's avatar
    Thank you for your work.
    Can you please tell me how to get rid off the attributes boxes in staff profiles, just like we can do with the players profiles.

    Best regards

    Hi, I have a Poblem. I downloaded your skin and put it in the folder but my tactics screen is a little bit broken. Can you help me please?
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    I should have added that is for the background panel.
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    Hi Flut. Great work on the updates.

    How can I reduce the opacity in the League > Transfers page?
  • Magic1111's avatar
    @ filip991

    Okay, good to know that i am not the only one with the problem!

    Then our Windows (or the game) cannot display the € character with a certain font, for whatever reason ....
  • filip991's avatar
    Magic, I have the same problem and I solved it with the old font too. Thank's
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    Okay, I always use the font folder of v2.1, no problem!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Magic: I tested yesterday with german language and everything was ok. Thus, I really don't know what is the cause for that problem in your game...
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    I deleted the Font Folder from the v2.2 and install the Font Folder from v2.1, and.....Problem solved!
    Look (the same Savegame as before):

    The problem is to be found in the font folder of v2.2. Everything works with the font folder of v2.1.

    Maybe the German language setting doesn't match the new fonts of v2.2?

    If you have time, you can set the German language in your game and see whether a C is then displayed instead of a €.

    Or what could be the problem?
  • Flut's avatar
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Flut, that would be worth a try. Can you please upload version 2.1 again, unfortunately I no longer have it on HDD. Thanks mate!
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Magic: I really don't know. Did you tried to replace the fonts folder with the fonts folder of the old version (2.1 version) since in that version I used the default font for text?
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    Hmm, weird ...

    Please look, I tested it with Andromeda Skin, € is correct:

    With Standard Skin, € is correct:

    And now your Skin v2.2 with no Alts:

    It is noteworthy that it only affects the larger € symbol. As you can see on the screenshots, the smaller € symbols are displayed correctly on your skin. For the larger ones it is basically the letter C and not the € sign.

    Do you have no idea where to look for the error?

    I even installed all of the skin's fonts, unfortunately without success.
  • Flut's avatar
    Filip: use this file (place it in the player folder of the skin)

    Magic: I don't know what happens in your game. In my game that symbol are oaky in the panels you present in yours screenshots. thus, sorry but I don't know how to help you.
  • filip991's avatar
    sorry for the frequent questioning, but can this be resolved, that I don't have double this?
    - and it can be seen that it doesn't show the jersey (I have this problem throughout the series) (last post)
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    The EURO symbol (€) is not displayed correctly on some screens, here as an example the homescreen (finance), or an e-mail regarding scouting. Can that be changed?

    The EURO symbol is correct in small letters.

  • Flut's avatar

    1. for hidden sidebar and without backgrounds
    go to client object browser.xml and change

    <widget class="background" file="backgrounds/default" id="bgnd">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="bgnd" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="file" />


    <widget class="picture" file="backgrounds/default" id="lggg">
    <record id="object_property">
    <integer id="get_property" value="lggg" />
    <integer id="set_property" value="pict" />

    2. Regarding the player overview panel (old version)

    - place this file in the player folder of the skin

    - Open player overview panel.xml and change

    <widget class="person_personal_information_panel" id="ypib" file="player/yacs information" late_loading="true">


    <widget class="person_personal_information_panel" id="ypib" file="player/yacs information2" late_loading="true">
  • filip991's avatar
    And just one more question
    - how do I have a hiding menu without a background image?
  • filip991's avatar
    this last update did a great job.
    I have only one question:
    - in player profile (old version) - info - can it be made to have only the last part - ABILITY, without Pesonal Detalis, Mental and Contract

    (new version)
    to insert ABILITY in the information on the left side of the panel

    online photo host

    p.s. and it can be seen that it doesn't show the jersey (I have this problem throughout the series)
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi DAZS8: thanks for helping me answering that question!!!!! cheers my friend. Your advice is right.
    Magic: you should write "kick" and not kicker since the ID for kicker is kick. Thus do as the following: default_item="kick"
