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.

FM2014 Match in Between Highlights Adaptive Skins

As with FM2013 we are again stuck with a hydrid TV-Classic mode match screen that still doesn't switch to previous panels when there are no highlights, instead we get a small In Between Highlights Panel that shows a tiny amount of information, thankfully this panel can be edited.

Which is what these skins do they maximize the amount of space given to the In Between Highlights Panel.

To make things easier for Football Manager 2014 I have turned the mod into Skins further the panel has been modified to use the Adaptive panels which means it automatically resizes itself to fit the screen resolution you are using and will display extra panels at larger resolutions.

There are currently two versions available for each of the Default FM2014 skins aswell as the FMC Mode 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.

I also plan on releasing an adjustable version (like the FM13 version) once I get it working.

Outside of the Match each skin is identical to the base version it is based upon.

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.
