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 2021 Match Screens Mod v1.1

Match Screens Mod has been updated to v1.1.

Changes include;

  • Added Heat Map/Average Positions panel.
  • Switched HT Review screen to use Adaptive panels so the right side panel disappears at lower resolutions.
  • FT Review Screen, removed Action Zones, Focus of Attacks and Report options as could cause the game to crash. (Can still access through Analytic Data popup button).
  • Split FTR tablet files into separate files to solve issues with game resetting panels.
  • Included an alt IBH panel, if you are having resolution issues and don't need to collapse the IBH panels then unzip the extractifwantfullscreenibhpanel.zip from the panels\match folder and let it replace the match in between highlights panel file and this will give you the basic eight panel view like from FM20 (or the FTR screen).

Finally like always the mod makes no changes outside of the Match Screens and thus is identical in appearance the Default Skin elsewhere.

Football Manager 2021 Scoreboard Mods



These are a collection of Mods that switch the short (six letter) team name in the scoreboard to the normal team name as shown on the tables and enable the team logos as well.

There are four versions of the mod, one that changes the team names, adds the logos but doesn't use the team colours, and three that change the team names and use the team colours with one of these only enabling logos, the second enabling both kits and logos and the third enabling kits and logos overlaid.

Football Manager 2021 Light Skin

 

With no Default Light Skin this year, I have after a fair bit of work created one that is based on the Light Skin Colour Scheme from FM20 blending a Light Grey background with Cyan and Purple Accents, with a layout based on the Default FM21 skin with a few tweaks.

Main changes outside of the colour changes;

- Player Attributes screen increased the size of the player face and logo, removed the scrollbars from the Attributes and added the Report option to the Small Selector panels.

- Embedded Tactics Screens reduced the padding around the sides to maximise the content area for most resolutions.

- Match Scoreboard included my forthcoming Scoreboard Mod that changes the scoreboard to use the normal team names (as used on the league tables), team colours and logos. (NOTE: That the Skin doesn't include my other Match Screens Mod as it is due to be updated but you can freely install the current version with no issues).

- Best XI Screen changed the tactics icons on the pitch to use the ones from the Welcome screen that include the player faces.

Football Manager 2021 Match Screens Mod



Welcome to my Match Screens Mod for Football Manager 2021.

As you may have noticed FM21 has re-worked the match screens, so I have rebuild the Match Screens Mod from scratch keeping the functionality of the new FM21 screens whilst adding in some more customization options as well as bringing back some panels from previous versions.

The mod again incorporates modifications to both the Match In Between Highlights panel and the Match Review screens, though I haven't had chance to modify the pre-match line-up panels or the Post Match Press Summary Panel.

Football Manager 2021 Touch Base Skins

As with most recent Football Managers for you to make certain changes in Football Manager 2021 Touch you need to create a new skin. Thankfully over the last few years some more stuff has been moved out of the skins folder so you only really need the Base skin if you are wanting to edit the skin graphics, fonts or colours. If you want to edit the match graphics or the most of the panel xml files you no longer really need the base skins.

So to make things easier for people I've put up some base skins that are identical to the default skins that come with the game, so you can add new files/graphics to these without messing up the original skins, and anything that isn't located in these new skin folders will be taken from the default locations within the game.

For Football Manager 2021 Touch you have three skins to choose from the Default (Purple) Skin, and two Dark Skins one based on the FM21 colouring (Purple accents) and one based on the FM20 colouring (Cyan and Yellow accents).

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.




If you have any further questions on the Base Skins please ask any questions in the Skinning Hideout on the Official SIGames Forums.

Football Manager 2021 Dark Base Skins Updated

Both the FM21 Base Dark Skin and FM21 Base Dark (FM20) Skins have been updated.

Default FM21 Base Skin hasn't been updated, and a Light Version is still in progress.

Fixes include:

Colour Tweaks

- Fixed issue with bright yellow background colour, changed to Purple from Main Dark Skin (bg tertiary colour).

- Tweaked the media tag colours on the inbox screens, made lighter so more readable.

Player Attribute Panel Tweaks

- Removed unneeded scrollbar.

- Stopped bottom option being cut from Analyzer

- Increased player pic size.

- Added Report option to Small Selector Panel.

General

- I also had to change the folder names due to an issue with the Steam Workshop, though this shouldn't cause any issues apart from them not matching the screenshots



If you have any further questions on the Base Skins please ask any questions in the Skinning Hideout on the Official SIGames Forums.
