  1. FM17 Audio Commentary Patch

    Could you please update the download link to the "sounds" in Mediafire? It no longer works only the "events" download link works.
  2. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    I'm on holidays till the end of the month, I haven't played with 16.3.0 yet. I will follow up, if still needed, after my holidays. Sorry for the delay!

    That is "fixture details.xml" panel. Open it in an editor and go to lines 15-16: <container id="NOFR"> <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" alignment="bottom,extend" gap="0" layout="140,175,-1,15,20" offset="0" /> Change the "175" value to a higher value and the space for the stadium picture will become bigger. It might be a good idea to reduce the size of the logo's underneath a bit so the content below doesn't get pushed down too much, but that's up to you to decide. On a side note, changing your tactics also might help......to many "red" results to my liking.....LOL
  4. Cut-out problem

    The file that needs to be edited is "match post match panel.xml" This panel was taken from the "Champions League skin" and I'm not sure if it was left untouched by the person who put it into your skin (or maybe you edited it). The picture is not "cut-off" but the information below it is simply showing too high up. Could be that it is caused by your resolution (the panel was made to work with HD resolutions 1920x1080) The code that you need to adjust can be found in the panel and looks like below: <!--result--> <container class="subsection_box"> <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" alignment="top" offset="290"/> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="10" layout_children="true"/> <widget class="text" id="rest" multiline="true" alignment="centre_x,bottom" auto_size="vertical" size="12" style="bold" colour="gold"/> </container> <container class="tabbed_container" id="main" default_item="mStP" save_session_state="true"> <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" alignment="top" gap="0" offset="340"/> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="10" layout_children="true"/> <widget class="match_stats_panel" id="mStP" file="match stats"> <translation id="title" translation_id="247412" type="use" value="Stats" /> </widget> <container class="subsection_box" id="anlC"> <translation id="title" translation_id="328531" type="use" value="Match Info[COMMENT: title of panel on match analysis preview panel showing key men, odds, ref etc.]" /> <!-- This container will stick to the top and bottom of it's parent --> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="8" layout_children="true" /> <widget class="table" id="anlT" layout="-2,-4" fixed_size_rows="false" auto_size_rows="true" mode="fill_rows, stripe_rows"> <list id="column_display_properties"> <record indx="0" left="4" top="2" bottom="3" right="2" sort_disabled="true" /> <record indx="1" right="4" top="2" bottom="3" left="2" sort_disabled="true" /> </list> <list id="column_properties"> <record indx="0" colour="match text" /> <record indx="1" colour="match text" /> </list> </widget> </container> <container class="subsection_box" id="mist"> <translation id="title" translation_id="308471" type="use" value="Milestones[COMMENT: title of match panel containing milestones]" /> <!-- This container will stick to the top and bottom of it's parent --> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" layout_children="true" /> <!--milestones--> <!--milestones - uncomment this if you want the milestones to be shown--> <widget class="match_preview_milestones_panel" id="mpmP"> <flags id="miti" value="1" /> </widget> </container> </container> <!--man of the match profile--> <container class="plain_box"> <layout class="arrange_vertical_attachment" alignment="top" offset="33"/> <layout class="fit_children_attachment" alignment="vertical" offset="500"/> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="0" layout_children="true"/> <widget class="client_object_viewer_xml_panel" id="momb" file="player man of the match profile"/> </container> </container> You have to increase the "offset" values so, for example the stadium info etc. will go lower in the screen, which will uncover the player picture more. All values need to be adjusted because, obviously, the milestones (tabbed section) and match stats also need to be lowered in that case.

    The icons are not in that folder, in the Champions league skin they can be found in "\graphics\icons\26px"

    No, I will not be releasing this skin for FM 2015, sorry. I skipped FM 2015, till now I'm still playing FM 2014 with an older Champions League skin ;-), so I can't even test anything anyways. As wkdsoul stated, it will not be as simple as just changing some code in an xml file in order for the whole skin to work correctly in another FM version. You can try to edit the "skin_config.xml" in the skins main folder and use this "template": <!-- skin name, author etc --> <string id="skin_name" value="(name of skin)" /> <string id="name" value="(name of skin)" /> <string id="author" value="(author name)" /> <translation id="description" translation_id="249669" type="use" value="skin for Football Manager 2015" /> <string id="version" value="(version)" /> <flags id="parent" value="fm dark" /> <!-- Minimum game version this skin requires to be valid, and listed as an option in the list of skins . This is used for two things: - First of all you can force a sking to only be availble for a minimum minor release (ie patch), in other words setting the required_version to 7.0.1 makes sure the skin won't be listed if the game is in version 7.0.0. - Secondly, the first number ("major version") is used to decide which version the skin was designed for, so if the version is "7.0.0" it won't be listed in the list of skins if the game version is "6.0.0." or "8.0.0", even though 7 is less than 8. --> <string id="required_version" value="15.0.0" /> It will FM 2015 at least recognize the skin so you can try loading it. I imagine some coding will have changed from last year's version (sorry, but I haven't played FM 2015 at all), so it's very unlikely that everything will work properly. Give it a shot and see if you can get something done with it. Sorry that I can't help you any further, don't think there will be a lot of demand for making new skins for FM 2015 anymore

    1.) The width of the subs panel can be controlled through code in the "match preview lineups panel.xml". For the home and away team there is code in the file: <widget class="subs_bench_panel" file="subs bench panel1" width="150" id="hsub" read_only="true" pitch_dont_use_player_properties="true" /> I haven't tried this but makes sense that if you edit the width to a higher number that the icons (shirts) will increase in size as they are resizing automatically. 2) The BBC logo can be found in the "\graphics\icons\logos" folder and the file you want to replace is (how appropriately) called "bbc.png". Just chose whichever logo you want (make sure to resize it to a size you feel looks good in the skin) and rename it to "bbc.png" and replace the existing file. Let me know please if this all worked ;-)

    LOL.....too funny!!!! Take some medicine against high blood pressure, or maybe better, take a rope, a little stool and.....just be careful for the furniture around you

    Always there to help! No worries
  10. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Well, "friend of Emil" I have said what I wanted to say. I created multiple panels and graphics that I made specially for this skin, so no need for insults. "Half of the Vitrex skin ripped".....what a joke!!! Have fun over here "friend" Edit: I see you edited your original message, bold letters etc. very impressive and intimidating.........scary. You are not even (supposed to be) the maker of the skin, right? So why the emphasis and anger? Get a life!
  11. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    When I read all "DimitriFromParis"' replies and demands my first reaction was to shake my head and shrub my shoulders. For all people who come to this thread and expect to get useful information on a skin they shouldn't have to read the current postings done and should have been communicated in PM's to begin with. Just for the record: "DimitriFromParis" is by his/her own admission in post #42 NOT the creator of the Vitrex skin, only "a friend". Pretty obvious for everyone to see that this account is being used by multiple people as post 42 is in big contrast to the current postings under the same name. If a person gets banned "for no apparent reason" and has his "friend" open a new profile and than hijacks that account to abuse that account, I guess that could be called "stealing" and it is against the forum rules. When the "DimitriFromParis" account will be banned, which wouldn't be a big surprise to me, we will probably get another "friend" of Emil who will use "EmilFromParis" or something like it and continue his/her quest. As "DimitriFromParis" is not the maker of the Vitrex skin and clearly in the mentioned post has asked me to change the credit given (and acknowledged me using some items from the Vitrex skin) this "person" is not in a position to make demands or utter threats. Just to put things in perspective yes, I have used 2 (TWO) panel files from the Vitrex skin "tactics overview panel" and "tactics overview panel match". I had to edit the later file as there was a bug in it (player names would drop off if making substitutions or changes to the squad). There are 310 panels in the folder and 2 of them were used, so yes.....that adds up to about 50% LOL Icons and signature files are freely available on the web, thanks HarryBrownUnited for your support, and nobody's "property" except of the ORIGINAL creator. The newspaper (BBC) addition in version 1.1 was given as an alternative to the original version. This was specially credited with "designed by "Emil Debski, Vitrex skin". As far as the status icons go..... Maybe "Dimitri" and I are talking about something different, I make reference to the icons in post# 106 by "wkdsoul" where this user shows how the ones I made are inserted in his skin. All player profile profiles, club screens, pre-match screens, post match screens (with exception of the 2 panels mentioned) are NOT from Vitrex and blatantly stating that I "stole 50%" of the Vitrex skin is just comical and completely unfounded. In short I'm not going into any "discussion" with a user ("DimitriFromParis) who is not even the creator from a skin and is clearly being operated by multiple users (included a banned user). Having a banned user use your own account in order to spam, abuse etc. the forum is against the forum rules.
  12. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    I'm thinking you are not the writer of this one, and I begin to understand why you were banned.......not so difficult actually. Keep you anger and frustration inside, if I wouldn't have acknowledged you or your work it would have been different. See you partner!
  13. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Always nice to get appreciation from a skin maker. Maybe to refresh your memory, have a look at post# 42, where you corrected me on who to give credit for the use of items from the skin. I corrected the credits from "DimitrifromParis" to Emile Debski and gave reference to the "Vitrex skin". The player stats icons, also just FYI were already in my Champions League skins in 2014, 2103 and earlier, so in no way taken from your skin (yours are not even looking similar). So, honestly, I gave credit, I discussed with you to adjust the credits and now it seems you drank a wrong potion or something LOL I appreciate the good work you did on the Vitrex skin and if you read the "readme" there are MULTIPLE references to you and your Vitrex skin. So wake up in a better mood and change your attitude please, you seem like a completely different person than the person who posted the earlier post (referring to giving proper credit)

    The only way around it is to use Photoshop or another program to edit the "2x" buttons in the graphics folder. Lots of work, but if you want to have it perfect for zoom, you can
  15. [FM16] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    You will need to edit line 14 in "player overview panel.xml" as well in order for the box to be adjusted to the changed logo size. This line reads: <container default_height="-13" priority="1"> With me if the logo is 120x120 this value needs to be adjusted to "-11". I play in windowed 1920x1080 and if I resize to a value lower than "-11" it will mess up the containers next to the player picture (with me that is the attributes panel) The signature will also move up with this change, I had adjust the position of the signature as well after making the change You will have to play around with the values (also the inset values you indicated) to get it to fit nicely. Screenshot after adjustments: If your logo cuts off at the bottom, change the value under the logo picture that reads: <widget class="editable_client_object_property_panel" id="pnat" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="centre"> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="top" inset="15"/> <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" /> In the last line that reads alignment="all" inset="0" I replaced the "0" with "7" and that worked best for my screen as you can see in the screenshot. The higher value will make the image appear smaller a lower value will stretch it more, so see which value you like best
