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.

    Flut, the "Files for hidden sidebar" work perfect. So thanks a lot for that.

    For me it work better because it stretches the screen out making the other area's bigger.
    Thanks again.

    I used to love that hidden sidebar feature. I’ll be sure to be adding it.
    Once again you’re to the rescue ⭐️
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi scouse: thanks for your kind words. I really appreciated it :) Regarding your question, in fact I abandoned the hidden sidebar since it cause some problems. However, after your request I tried to include it again, changed the files and I believe it works well. Thus, here are the files for use it (I included a read me file). If you find some problems with it, please let me know. Cheers.

    Hi Flut.

    Brilliant skin as usual, you always deliver every year, and I always use your skin over any of the others because yours has that something special about it. Don't get me wrong, a couple of the others are good, but don't match yours, yours looks and feels polished. Whenever people think that the skin cant be improved, you come up with something new and better all the time. Plus you always take the time out to help people with problems or tweaks that they want to change to make the skin individual to them, so I'll speak for us all and say we are very grateful that you help us make the changes we want, and I don't think people will mind me saying that on behalf of them.

    I know this will be a very simple question for you to answer, and I've asked you this before in a previous FM version, but I've forgotten how to do it LOL.

    My question is so simple, but can you tell me again how I use HIDDEN side bar menu, rather than the default STATIC side bar?

    I'd be grateful of knowing what to do again, thanks.

    pandaisland: thanks. Regarding your question. you just have to insert the file you find in the alt folder, in panels/club (and overwrite the original one).

    Hi BoemioFM: thanks. I will send you a PM.

    Hi TS.: Go to competition fixtures item panel detailed.xml and change the colour in line 35 (home scorers) and 97 (away scorers)

    <widget id="hscr" class="text" font="text" size="small" auto_size="vertical" alignment="right, top" colour="faded text"/>

    Um adendo, Flut. Algo que achei sensacional na sua skin foi que ela já ajuda bastante para ajustarmos em resoluções menores (ou qualquer pessoa que queira modificar algo por gosto mesmo), pois os arquivos já têm bastante explicação no início dos comandos, bem como um espaço considerável entre estes, de modo que facilita nosso entendimento aonde cada coisa se encaixa. Além disso, dentro do próprio jogo você deixou possibilidades de edições e escolhas em várias caixas (clicando na seta existem uma infinidade de opções). Ademais, muitas caixas possuem barra de rolagem, o que também ajuda muito a ver o conteúdo que porventura possa ser cortado em baixas resoluções. Imagino que essa possa ser uma saída interessante para deixar sua skin customizável: opções de escolha (sobretudo nas caixas maiores) e barras de rolagem (sobretudo nas caixas menores e que tenham prioridade menor, ou seja, as que possam ser cortadas ou que fiquem pouco visíveis lá embaixo). Uma última coisa que pode ajudar também é um índice para explicar cada painel, pois sua skin, por ser muito completa e detalhista, possui muitos arquivos, o que deixa a gente um pouco perdido para saber aonde mexer para alterar efetivamente os painéis (falando como leigo, notei que muitos arquivos são "escravos" de outros e as alterações que fazemos não surtem o devido efeito). Enfim, ficam aqui as sugestões e o feedback de um novo adepto da sua skin.

    Flut, desculpe, desconsidere o comentário anterior. De fato, baixei o pack que você disse e deu certo. O comentário anterior era devido ao fato de achar que a segunda foto do estádio apareceria no início dos jogos, porém não acontece. Então deixo aqui uma sugestão para a próxima atualização da skin: colocar a foto da cidade no início do jogo (talvez naquela parte em que entra o logo da fifa). Por fim, deixo uma última sugestão: percebo que poucas skins são feitas para resoluções mais baixas (768), mas uma grande parte de usuários possuem monitores apenas HD, que somente comportam essa resolução máxima, por isso acredito que sua skin alcançaria mais pessoas caso fosse feita também para essas resoluções (dou o exemplo da skin do heffen que é uma das mais usadas e possui 3 versões para resoluções diferentes; ele altera apenas alguns arquivos específicos, deixando a skin "pai"). Eu mesmo fiz um trabalho aqui na sua skin, diminuindo caixas e fontes, de modo que ela ficou excelente para 768, mas apenas alterei os perfis principais do clube e dos jogadores. Se eu tivesse mais conhecimento (dei uma estudada sobre isso, mas estou longe de ser um expert), conseguiria fazer mais rápido e mais completo esse trabalho. então penso que talvez não fosse algo tão trabalhoso para você. No mais, parabenizo seu trabalho e afirmo que é a melhor skin de todas, sobretudo pela imersão do pré-jogo, com ingressos e a animação antes da partida.
  • BoemioFM's avatar
    Obrigado, Flut! Caso eu queira, em vez de uma segunda foto do estádio, deixar a foto da cidade (do pack já instalado mesmo) qual (is) arquivo(s) eu devo alterar e qual comando eu coloco pra ele puxar a foto da cidade?
  • TS.'s avatar
    Hey Flut, one quick question, if you don't mind. I haven't been able to figure out where to change the colour of goal scorers underneath results in the competitions fixtures/results. I wanna change it to something more bright as it's currently greyish. The skin goalscorers settings don't change that so I assume it's somewhere in the panels. Thanks p.s and what determines goalscorers font size?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi rodrigo alonso: yes, the image don't have good definition but I couldn't find other. If you want, please send me an image (1150x540 or a similar ratio) I can do a new file.

    Hi boemio: the missing picture is another stadium picture. Download the stadiums packs made for DAZS8 and I believe the problem will be solved.
  • BoemioFM's avatar
    Flut. bom dia. Por gentileza, você poderia me dizer qual imagem alterna com a imagem do estádio no perfil do clube? Acredito que seja a mesma imagem que deva aparecer acima da foto do estádio no perfil do mesmo (ao clicar para ver as informações do estádio), que também não está aparecendo para mim. Seria outro background? Tenho as cidades e estádios instalados. As fotos dos dois aparecem normalmente.

    The image wasn't good, but thank you bro

    Hi rodrigoalonso: place the files in the corresponding files of the skin (one of them in panels/competition; the other two files in graphics/boxes/news)

    Where can I install the file on foxsport news?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi rodrigoalonso: thanks. Here are the files for foxsports.

    Bom dia Flut,
    Mais uma vez sua Skin é maravilhosa. Gostaria de fazer um pedido para nós brasileiros que adoramos tanto sua skin. Na parte de notícias, você poderia incluir algum jornal esportivo daqui do Brasil, o mais famoso aqui é o Fox Sports.

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Captain Morgan: I believe you didn't delete all the code I refer. You should delete all the following 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">

    Thanks. Finally, I just play with the zoom in settings and take it to 85%. And it works. (sorry for my poor english).
    Have a good day.
    <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" />


    Regarding the Skin for 1366x768, sorry but I don't have time to do it. Sorry.

    Hi Makalakalane: thanks!! Regarding your question you can remove that backgrounds, deleting the folder named confederations in the following path

  • Makalakalane's avatar
    Hello everyone!
    Very nice Skin - keep up the good work! I'm having one issue, that I'm hoping osmeone could assist with.. I've downloaded a lot of backgrounds - mainly ones that are made specifically for the Flut skin. I've also downloaded a competition background pack, but I can't make it work with Flut. I seems like there are a few default pictures that appear as backgrounds for the competitions with the FLUT-skin - one pic for UEFA competitions (european domestic leauges) and another pic for African competition and so forth. I can't seem to find these pics anywhere or in which config-file they refer to the competitions.
    Can anyone help? I'd love to get rid of the default competition-backgrounds that FLUT offers and substitute them with the competition-pack that I downloaded.

  • Captain Morgan's avatar
    hi my friend @Flut.your skin is unbelievable. I use it and my brother. I followed your steps but I didn't get an edge. I deleted the following codes from the title bar.xml but the bar disappeared.

    <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 = "center, can_scale" color = "text" size = "9">
    <record id = "object_property">

    Maybe I shouldn't leave gaps in the deleted codes

    I would like them to disappear from the bar at the time of the match is the weather and the coach's profile especially if the playing time finally appears.must you delete everything you wrote in the answer to the shedders? because you give a first answer and then another one that you say other codes must be deleted.and finally we could finance you and at some point create skin for the 1366X768 screen resolution;
