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 In-Between Hightlights Mod

If you downloaded last years mod then you know what to do by now, the instructions are pretty much the same as not much has changed to the coding of the actual files, I've made a couple of tweaks to improve the content of the panels but the main change is just updating the file locations.

Like the last couple of versions the match screen we have in Football Manager 2017 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, where we are left with a small pop-up giving us some information like the old TV-View widgets.

The default FM17 panel has been improved slightly but is still rather limited especially if you are using a larger resolution.

As with Football Manager 2016 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 this year there are two versions for each mode of FM2017 (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 Touch version some of the match feed overlays the panel even in this mode as the feed takes up more room in Touch 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, unless you turn off the match feed.

Outside of the match screen these mods make no changes.

A Couple of Notes:

- The Shots panel isn't working 100%, it just seems to display the overall shots instead of the last five mins, first half or just second half stats. However the default files have the same problem and the content of this panel isn't really user editable so it will have to wait for a patch to fix it.

- Team Names on the League Table can be cut off depending on your resolution, again not much I can do to fix this as it uses the same tables as the rest of the skin so messing with it would cause issues elsewhere, though their should still be enough of the team name shown to work out who is who.

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.
