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

FM 2020 FLUT skin light - Version 2.2

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

This is the FLUT Skin ("light" 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, comnpatibilty 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_light" 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 light - 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.

    Hi all. Sorry but I'm too busy and, therefore, unable to respond to your requests. Thanks to everyone who supported FlutSkin over the past 8 years. I wish to have time to edit the skin for FM21.
  • Pascali's avatar
    Thx for the skin!

    Is is possible to show faces in the tactic-screen on the soccer-field?

    Any way to disable the realtime-editor-symbol in the flutskin light?
  • jokher's avatar
    hy flut,pls help me.......I don't want the bar hidden, I want it fixed how do I do it?
  • a120d's avatar
    Hi Flut
    Love ur skin... always use since FM18.
    anyway.. how to change the attirbute player to the default colour

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi Patangus: thanks. For fix that bugs use these files (place them in panels/nation).

    Hi rybos: you should use the kits specially made for flutskin.
  • Patangus's avatar
    Hi Flut !

    To begin, Congratulations for your skin, it's very beautiful.

    It's difficult to read the text in some places. For examples :

    Have you a solution ?
  • rybo9120's avatar
    Hi FLUT, I cant seem to get the real kits to show up on the player profile page, they work on club overview and that, so is there a fix or am I just not doing something correctly?
  • Flut's avatar
    trig338: please send me a screenshot with that problem you have.
  • trig338's avatar
    Awesome skin. One problem though. In some places it's impossible to read the text. For example on a players' career stats page (where Ronaldo is a background). I have to switch skin when scouting players to see their match rating history. Is there a way to change the code to remove background images?
  • Flut's avatar
    lucasolrezende: that solution should solve the proble. Don't forget to exit the game and reload it (and also don’t forget to untick the check box in the preferences of the game: “use caching to decrease page loading times”).
  • lucastolrezende's avatar
    I have the same problem that @chrisdazza. In game match the playing minutes don't appear. My resolution is only 1440x900. Delete the code in "match title bar.xml don't work also. Any other possible solution? Thanks!
  • Flut's avatar
    Uncle Sam: thanks. :) Those kits are in the following path graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\back\zoomed


    chrisdazza: that problem is due your screen resolution.
    You can try the following solution. 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 Flut
    nice work but could you change back to show the playing minute in the match cos i always don't know what actual mins in the match and late to do changing, thx
  • Uncle Sam's avatar
    Flut, great work. I love the depth and all the information that is immediately visible. I do have one question. I adapted the skin for my own 2D kits in the player profile, however it looks like the old default kit is still visible behind my kit. I looked through the comments but I didn't see a solution. I'm posting a picture with what I meant:

    I did go into the skin folder, graphics>pictures>kits>2d>outfield>front>default and replaced the files there with the default kit style that matches what I use but as you can see that still shows. Any ideas how to sort that out?
  • Flut's avatar
    Hi bluemoon: I included the following code in the header.xml (after the code for save match)

    <!--instant result button-->
    <widget class="icon_button" id="inst" icon="icons/26px/ir" label_disabled="true" alignment="centre" icon_alignment="centre" width="42" click_event="inst" appearance="buttons/standard/normal/button" red_replacement="white">
    <record id="primary_icon_properties" red_replacement="white" />
    <translation id="hint" translation_id="339740" type="use" value="Instant Result" />

    <attachment class="test_global_attachment" get_property="sect" mode="1" set_property="show">
    <list id="value">
    <integer value="phtc" />
    <integer value="PhcP" />
    <integer value="PhcR" />
    <integer value="PhcK" />
    <integer value="PhcH" />
    <integer value="PhcN" />
    <integer value="PhcC" />
    <integer value="PhcF" />
    <integer value="patc" />
    <integer value="PacP" />
    <integer value="PacR" />
    <integer value="PacK" />
    <integer value="PacH" />
    <integer value="PacN" />
    <integer value="PacC" />
    <integer value="PacF" />

  • Flut's avatar
    Hi bluemoon: I really don't know although I believe the answer might be yes. But I can't help you since I don't use any skin for FMT and I don't play in that mode. Sorry.
  • bluemoon78's avatar
    hi flut thx for skins.. I will ask a questions.. Can I added instant result in match for FMT 20?? Do u help me??
  • Flut's avatar
    TheBreah: if you want, you can play with the new version and the fonts of 2.1. You just have to replace the fonts folder of the 2.2 for the fonts folder pf the 2.1 and reload the game.
  • TheBreah's avatar
    Thank you very much.

    To be honest i could not play the game with the new font. It made eyes hurt. Not good at all.

    Once again. Thank you for all the work with this great skin.

  • Flut's avatar
    TheBreah : here is the link

    MackbossFM: thanks!! Regarding your question, open the match title bar.xml and change (line 309):

    <container width="140">


    <container class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper201" width="140">

    LandonDonovan10: sorry but as I already said, I don’t intend to edit the skin for other resolutions.
  • TheBreah's avatar
    First of all thank you for all your work.
    Is it possible to post the link of the 2.1 version ?

    Thank you in advance.
  • MackbossFM's avatar
