Welcome to my Football Manager Blog, the main purpose of this blog is to provide updates on the status of my Football Manager Skins & Guides Website

If you have any questions or queries then I can generally be found in the Skinning Forum at the Official Sports Interactive Forums, though I'd ask you to open a new thread rather than sending me a message.

To help with navigation I have included indexes of my content for the last few versions of Football Manager in the tabs below.

Netbook2011 Skin

My First Skin for Football Manager 2011 is the third version my Netbook skin. The FM2011 version is largely similar to the FM2010 one, but has been reworked to work with Football Manager 2011, I've also tweaked the various new screens and features so they work aswell.
The skin is designed to work better on Netbooks and other computers who's screens are limited to a 1024x600 resolution. Skin is based on the default FM2011 skin, with the most changes being the maximising of the screen content area.

Football Manager 2011 Patch 11.1 Released

The first patch for Football Manager 2011 has now been released.

A major change is the addition of a Dark Skin for Football Manager 2011.

Football Manager 2011 Base Skins - Dark Versions Released

With the release of patch 11.1 we now have access to the Dark Skin and as such I have released Dark Versions of the Base Skins. Please note the Dark Base Skins will only work if you have installed Patch 11.1 or later.

The Light Base Skins have also been updated for patch 11.1 (a couple more colours have been added to the settings file).

As with FM2010 to make certain changes in FM2011 you are required to add files to the skin folders, whilst this isn't a problem for fan-made skins it is a slight problem if you are using the Default Skins included with the game. So to help people out I have again made some Base Skins for FM2011 that allow you to add and modify the default skins without breaking your game.
Full instructions on when and how to use the Base Skins can be found on the download page, please ensure you read the page in detail before downloading the Base Skins as it will save you problems in the future.

Currently there are four versions of the Base Skin - two light and two dark one of each solely based upon the Default FM2011 Skin and another one with the Background Changes re-enabled thanks to Radestock.
If you have any further questions on the Base Skins please ask any questions in the Skinning Hideout on the Official SIGames Forums.
