FM Enhanced?


Recommended Posts

Anyone know what happened with the FMEnhanced skin? 

I downloaded the new version which seemed to break my game. After running a few errands and reconnecting, I could not find any information on it on FMScout or social media.

@BGN Apologies for my absence in the community over the past few months, as well as the shortcomings of FME v2.4. A duplicate ID kept the attributes table from working correctly.

I have recently had time to revisit my project and have completely rebuilt FME so as to be lighter, more efficient and more useful.

[FM21][SKIN] FMEnhanced v3.0

Several months ago during the release of the BETA, I released a skin called FME (Football Manager Enhanced) which was intended to be an extension of what Sports Interactive provide as opposed to a complete overhaul. I intended to keep everything in keeping with the default look and feel of the game for a more seamless integration and ease of use. Upon release of FME, I received some wonderful feedback from users and fellow modders, though with limited time I was unable to keep up with demand for extra features/bug fixes etc. Having gained more time over the past month, I have rebuilt FME and have stripped it back for the sake of simplicity.

If you're familiar with FME, you may be sad to learn that this version of the skin is currently only a Player Overview panel with little or no modding elsewhere. I have taken a quality over quantity approach and perhaps with more time in the future, I'll be able to rebuild the club page that I originally built. I have discovered several things that have never before been done and it would be nice to reveal them in a future update. For now though, FME is an upgraded default skin with an enhanced Player Profile.

Screen Size Adaptability

FME adapts better than before to smaller resolutions. If you have a very low res screen (1024x768), you'll have a slightly limited experience as there simply isn't enough space to display all the required elements. However, stepping up to 1600x900 and 1920x1080, you have a fuller experience with  greater functionality as per the images below.

(1024x768), (1600x900) & (1920x1080)



Transfer/Scouting Labels

Player profiles show Dynamic Transfer Labels which change with context. When a player has been scouted, the "Transfer" labels are replaced with the "Transfer Interest" labels, better integrating the scout report with the player profile and giving you a quick idea of how much a player might cost.

Transfer Actions

Transfer actions are available directly from the Scout Feedback Block via a dropdown menu. Additionally, clicking on the Scout Rating Circle, or indeed any of the Transfer Labels will take you directly to the full Scout Report.



Attribute Colours/Information Block

Touch versions of the game present different attribute colours which I have modified and introduced into FME. Red highlights low attribute values, Yellow for moderate values, Blue for good values and Green for excellent values. Foot strength is of course also present underneath the Physical Table. Additionally, I have implemented a better Player Information block which I believe provides all of the essential basic information required when viewing a player.



Additional Tabs

In addition to the default Attributes tab, I have made several other tabs available which I have optimized to function in a much smaller space. Player Information, Contract Information, Transfer Information/Status, Player Report, Medical Report & History are all available to access directly from the Player Overview. I hope to add more tabs in the future, though these are the ones I have made available for the time being.





The Future

As and when time becomes available to me, I will endeavour to keep this project alive. Sports Interactive do a great job every year and they made a lot of improvements to the base skin. I understand there are many people who prefer a Dark or a Light skin, as well as Instant Result and Player Faces on the Tactics screen and although these used to all be part of FME, they will not be officially restored until I have a good amount of time to ensure they are implemented well and to a standard I am happy with. For now, feel free to download FME v3.0 and perhaps even use it purely as a standalone Player Overview Panel within another creators skin.
