    Love the skin! but when i load up every match, EVERY matchday widget opens and stacks on the right of the screen. I can disable them at the time but if i leave the match screen (to view player profile etc), they just return again, same every match I play. Is there a simple way of changing this? I have a little xml experience if it involves editing one or other of the files...

    It is a known issue and will be fixed in the next version. Until then, to fix that problem, simply replace that file:

    /My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/skins/dark touch/settings/dark touch settings.xml

    With this one: Dark Touch Settings.xml
