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.

    For me the solution doesn´t work.

    I write the word "Kicker" on the same place as in the screenshot the Word "Gazzetta", and after start a savegame (of course clear the cache and reload the skin) the overlay in News page is completely empty.

    Is not a solution possible, that the choice of the user beeing saved?
  • DAZS8's avatar

    Yes this was the advics Flut gave me when I asked the same question just change the default to the one you want

    (right click on image then open in a new tab)
  • postie75's avatar
    I tried changing this as suggested by Dazs8 but am unable to get it to work do i need to just change the word goal to sky sports to get it to work as sky sports?
  • DAZS8's avatar

    You just have to go to competitions news panel and change the ID according the one you want, in the following line<container class="tabbed_container" id="gcol" default_item="goal" save_session_state="true">line 50

    Hi Flut!

    I noticed, that on the "News Page" the KICKER Overlay does not remain saved (I choose the Kicker overlay, because is the german sport/Football magazine).

    After loading a savegame, the selection always changes to GOAL.

    Is it possible to fix this?

    Will this skin work on android phone? Not tablet..
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Hi Flut!

    It works perfect with font size 11.

    Look for example:

    <record id="widget_info" class="game_formatted_label" style="bold" size="11" alignment="centre, can_scale" auto_size="vertical" format="[%date#1-short]" />
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Magic: you can edit that text in player personal details panel1.xml in the following code (you can, for instance, decrease the font size.

    <widget class="editable_client_object_property_panel" id="dobl" auto_size="all">
    <record id="widget_info" class="game_formatted_label" style="bold" size="10" alignment="centre, can_scale" auto_size="vertical" format="[%date#1-short]" />
    <record id="widget_properties" height="24" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="Pdob" />

    Jaco: you should edit the values you highlighted with underline (not that one with the value 79) or delete the code that starts in

    <widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true"> (this is line 26)

    and finish in

    </widget> (this is line 36)

    Hi Flut!

    Look at the screenshot, it works with the sidebar and the heigt of the player! The Height doesn't look as nice as in your 19 skin, but better than before! Thank you so much!

    The last little detail that I noticed (sorry Mate...LOL) is that the date of birth is not read correctly. Can it be fixed?


  • Jaco1970's avatar
    In fact I should only change this value because the others are already there. I tried but I have not solved, the other solution that you told me to delete lines 26 to 36 I did not understand where I find them?

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Jaco: you can edit it in kit icon24.xml, changing the values in the following code.

    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="19"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="10"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="34" />
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" />

    If you couldn't solve the problem you can remove the logo (the front default kit will be displayed but without the logo). For that, delete the code from lines 26 to 36.
  • Jaco1970's avatar
    I correct the last photo that I put only happens if you use the game window if the writings are seen better on the full screen.
  • Jaco1970's avatar
    I noticed another thing, on the coach's home page the words circled in red are not seen well.

    Hi magic: regarding to the sidebar, you can use the alts for sidebar matching club colour.
    Regarding the text. For move the height of the player to the left, go to player overview panel.xml (line 412) and change the values in the following piece of code

    <widget class="editable_client_object_property_panel" style="bold" id="Phel" colour="primary" size="11">
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="bottom" inset="-16"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="-67"/>
    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="116" />
    <record id="object_property" get_property="Phei"/>
    <record id="widget_properties" alignment="centre, centre_y"/>

    @ Flut

    Yes mate, that's how it works. But the problem is that the sidebar in the player view is now black instead of red for the team color ?!

    Another little detail, see the green arrow: The m (meter) for the size of the player would have to be shifted a little to the left. Now it is too close to the age. How does it work?

  • Flut's avatar
    Thanks ingey: the panel is inbox content with training focus panel.xml
  • ingey1968's avatar
    flut, great skin, could you tell me the name of this panel, would like to remove the ca pa off it
  • Flut's avatar
    Magic1111: did you already tried to use all the files for no hidden sidebar except the player overview panel.xml (using the player overview panel alt – flutskin18 instead)? In fact you can do it without any problem (all files for No Hidden sidebar, except the player overview panel.xml + all the files of alt – flutskin18)

    Jaco1970: Please place a screenshot of all the page since I can’t identify what is the panel you are talking about.

    donpablo: you should have the stadiums pack. Try to download the pack whose links I included in the skin presentation.

    jorginio: :)

    Mister Khali: in my game that information is okay. Thus, sorry but I can’t help you.

    scouse1: Thanks. Regarding your question, could you please send me a screenshot? Sorry but I didn’t understand your question.

    richbell82: thanks!!

    Hi Flut!

    Regarding the Alts...

    I want to play with "No hidden Sidebar_dark" and "player overview alt - flutskin18". You know I love Player overview 1.8...

    Both of these are suddenly not possible because both alts have the same file, namely the player overview panel.xml

    Can you please make both compatible so that I can play with the fixed sidebar and the player overview 18?

    Many thanks in forward mate!
  • Jaco1970's avatar
    Hi Flut how do I remove the big team logo as you see behind the shirts in the picture and put the small one?Enter text for the link here...
  • donpablo's avatar
    Hello, I have a question, the images for the stadiums are two that appear by rotation, the second picture from which folder does it come
  • jorginio's avatar
  • Mister Khali's avatar
    when we go to the game it shows the clubs, it shows the teams, and then it shows the stadium.
    in the stadium it shows the information of the infrastructure does not show what the surface is, whether it is grass or synthetic.
    Example: surface: - / capacity: 50,000 / stadium condition: good
    how do i solve this?
  • scouse1's avatar

    On the competition draw panels for Carabao Cup and FA Cup, how do I make the team names bigger?
