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.

FM16 Match In-Between Highlights Mods

Like the last couple of versions the match screen we have in Football Manager 2016 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.

The default FM16 panel has been improved slightly but is still rather limited especially if you are using a larger resolution.

As with Football Manager 2015 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.

This year there are two versions for each mode of FM2016 (Full Mode and Touch Mode) rather than being two for each skin this is because there are eight default skins this year, which would take a lot of extra work to create individual mods for each skin.

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 these mods make no changes.

New views for FM16:

- Both Formations Vertical View - I've added a new option for the both formations panel to show the formations top to bottom rather than side-by-side.

- Pro-Zone Shots View - This is a new default view introduced in FM16, it acts like the Action Zones view put shows shots rather than possession, I've added a right click function to this view to allow you to pick either a horizontal or vertical pitch, though I haven't found a way to add more stats to the panel.

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.
