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.

Football Manager 2017 Match Screen Kits Mod

My latest Match Screen Mod for Football Manager 2017 is another update from last year with this one changing the logos on the match screens into kits, however unlike previous years there is only one version for each mode this year as adding the kits to the header doesn't work correctly this year, though you can still combine it with my Match Titlebar Team Names Mod for full mode skins:

Mod One - This version is for Full Mode Skins and replaces the Logos with Kits on the Split Screen Overview Panel but leaves the Logos in the Header, as shown in the first screenshot below.

Mod Two - This version is for Touch Mode Skins and just replaces the logos on the match screens with kits, however as Touch mode doesn' have a header it doesn't need the other file to add the logos back to the header. (Second Screenshot below)

Mod Three - You can also create a third version of the mod for Full Mode Skins that adds the Team Names back onto the Titlebar (Third Screenshot below) - To do this you need to download the Second Mod (Yes the Touch Version) aswell as the version of my Match Titlebar Team Names Mod that you want.

Mod One will ONLY work with Full Mode Skins. If you are using a custom skin that has changed the Match Titlebar then you are best downloading Mod Two and then following the advanced instructions further down to add the logos back to the header if need be.

Mod Two will work with all skins including custom skins, Full Mode skins and Touch Mode skins2 should also work with any FM16 full-mode skin, though if you are using a skin with a custom match titlebar you'll need to modify the files yourself.

Note that these mods don't add kits/logos to the various Overview screens that don't display logos by default it just changes the existing logos to kits, if you want kits on the overview screen then that is a whole different guide.

To apply to your game you just need to download the file for which Mod you want from below, extract the zip file and put the extracted match folder into the panels folder for the skin you are using, if you are using the Default Skin then download the Base Skin, add the file(s) to that skin and switch to the Base Skin in game. (If you have the skin cache on you may need to turn it off and reload your skin for the changes to show up).
