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.

FM2015: Match In-Between Highlights Skins

Like the last couple of versions the match screen we have in Football Manager 2015 is a hybrid TV-Classic view mode where again if there are no hightlights you are left on the pitch view instead of switching back to the last panel you were on, were we are left with a small pop-up giving us some information like the old TV-View widgets.

Thankfully this pop-up is editable, which is what these skins does they resize the pop-up and modifies the content of the panels to show the full panel details where possible.

As with Football Manager 2014 I have modified the panel to use the adaptive panels used elsewhere in the game this means the panel will resize itself depending on what resolution you are using (meaning no editing of the xml file just to get it working) and will also display extra panels if you have the space.

Again to make things easier I have made the mod into a skin which means there are a couple of different versions available depending what skin you are using and what you want:

There are two versions of the mod for each of the Default skins included with FM (Dark version of full FM15 mode and an FMC one for FMC2015 mode, a Light version will follow once the skin has been released):

Normal - Maximizes the size of the in-between match highlights panel positioned in the centre of the screen and leaving space for the match feed notifications down the right. (For the FMC version some of the match feed overlays the panel even in this mode as the feed takes up more room in FMC mode).

Wide - Maximizes the size of the in-between match highlights panel, but this time uses up the full width of the screen, this allows for more information to be shown at smaller screen resolutions, but the match feed items when displayed will cover parts of the top right side of the panel.

Outside of the match screen the skins are identical in appearance to the default FM15 skins.

Advanced instructions are also available to apply them to other skins and to enable alternative views.

Screenshots show a sample of available views and the panel at different resolutions, each version has the same views and panels enabled.
