    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    The logos are "ESS v5 Logos" created by Tom Dixon. There are v6 logos on "Sortitoutsi.net" available for download but I still use v5. Just a matter of taste I guess, I like these better

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    This occurred after update 18.3.1 in all skins as some of the coding changed. This has been fixed as far as regular team talks go (in the OP is the download link) and for substitutions during match a few posts ago the fix was mentioned. Thanks for the feedback!

    1) After you changed to the "smaller faces version" you will have to edit the file ""pre season report team watch panel.xml", in line 12 you will see: <container class="competition_team_preview_panel" file="news_item_panels/pre season report team preview panel" height="760" > Change the value "760" to a lower value (in my resolution and in windowed 1920x1080 in version 1.3 the value that worked for me is "710"), the pitch with players will be slightly reduced in size and it will fit without the scroll bar appearing. 2) In version 1.2 and 1.3 the turf in the tactics panel is standard. To change the tactics panel in version 1.1 to show the turf as you requested, go to “panels/tactics/tactics overview side panel.xml” in line 9 you will see: appearance="boxes/bordered/standard/paper10" change this code to: “appearance="custom/pitch_tactic". 3) The top part that you indicated in "red" is actually the menu for the "tabbed container"which shows the attributes, but also other information like "report" "training" etc. If you delete the choice at the top you will only have the attributes available to review, not sure if that is your intention. Do you only want to delete the "hidden attributes" from showing up in the screen, or do you also want to delete the additional attributes? 4) To see the selections in this screen you will have to delete the folder "graphics\buttons\primary". After that the choices will be visible.

    Best editing tool for this is Notepad++ which is a free tool. All XML files can be easily edited or viewed with this, just make sure you download the “XML Tools” plug in when using Notepad++

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    The procedure I described worked if you follow the instructions EXACTLY. You will have to use the Resource Archiver to open the file I indicated and save the contents in a separate directory. All folders in that directory you leave "as is" only the "sounds" folder you empty and replace the files with the ones in the commentary audio downloaded file. make sure there are no subfolders in it (I remember there is a "default" subfolder for sure), so all audio files should be directly put into the (now empty) "sounds" folder. (see screenshot below of the folders that are created when you unpack the original "simatchviewer.fmf") Once done you use Resource Archiver again but now you pack all the files in that folder (not only the sounds folder, but all the files you extracted earlier) into a new "simatchviewer.fmf" and put the files in the folders I indicated. make sure your game isn't running while you do all this and restart the game, empty cache and reload it, it works 100% for friendlies and regular games. Make sure you allow sounds in matches to be played in "preferences".

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    It is a tool you can use to extract "fmf" files and create them as well, this is the link to steam: https://steamdb.info/app/624240/ Here is the link to the guide:

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    I still had it in my Football Manager 2016 game, I would do a Google search if you would like an updated version, the link to the version for FM 2012 was posted in this thread by MBarbaric who is the creator of this great addition. Found this link: https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm16-audio-commentary-and-more-realistic-sounds.html

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    I got this to work with no issues at all although it is not as straightforward anymore as in previous versions, this is how to get it working in Football Manager 2018: 1) Copy "match_events.xml" and "match_sounds.cfg" from the commentary patch to your installation folder: "Football Manager 2018\data\simatch\events" 2) a) Use the "resource archiver" and unpack the file "simatchviewer.fmf" which can be found in "Football Manager 2018\data". b) Save the files in a separate directory. c) Delete the contents of the "sounds" folder and replace it with the sounds in the commentary patch. (Important: make sure there are no subfolders, the sound files need to be put directly in the "sounds" folder, otherwise the sounds won't play). d) Use the "resource archiver" to create a new "simatchviewer.fmf" file from the changed folder with "sounds" folder replaced with the commentary contents in it. e) Move the "simatchviewer.fmf" file to the installation folder: "Football Manager 2018\data" and replace the existing file. Reload the cache and play your Football Manager 2018 game with live commentary again! I tested this and works already for weeks without any issues. ALWAYS make a backup of you original files in case something goes wrong or you want to revert back to the original sounds

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Bug spotted by Dariox (thanks for catching this one). After the 18.3 update some panels. including the team talk panel, needed to be fixed, it seems I missed the "match sub talk panel.xml" in the "panels\match" folder of the skin. When you substituted a player during the match you couldn't chat with him. Delete the file so it will load the new default panel and it will work again. (see screenshot below)

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    For users of version 1.3 ONLY: A small bug that only affects a limited amount of users was noted in the "weekend preview" inbox panel ("inbox content with comp match day preview panel.xml" located in "panels/news_item_panels" folder) I edited this panel to make it look cleaner but depending on the resolution used or the display mode (full screen/windowed) the name of the venue could be "cut off" in rare cases. To resolve this go to line 67 in the file named "inbox content with comp match day preview panel.xml" and change "height="245" to height="265" and save the changes, all should look good after that. Otherwise, PM me for an updated xml file if you are unfamiliar with editing xml files or prefer not to mess with it. Below a screenshot from a user who plays in a (much) higher resolution and spotted the issue:

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Version 1.3 has been released, if I missed anyone for the updated download link or wish to download this version please PM me. This should be the last update for the 2018 Champions League skin, bug related issues will be resolved. Please no requests for "technical support" on plugging my panels into your own or another skin. As always I will "skip a year" for Football Manager (to my opinion the small differences/improvements don't justify an annual "renewal"), but I will be back with a new Champions League 2020 skin for sure!

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Version 1.3 with some graphical updates, small fixes etc. will be released after the long weekend. It will include the kits etc.shown in the screens and will include an option to switch back to faces for those who prefer faces instead of the kits.

    Schedule screen and Competitions screen

    The screenshots are from the Champions League 1.2 skin, I know a few other skins have the stadium picture in the fixtures panel as well, not that many have the recent form column in the league table, the new MILLA skin has it also. Not sure if you want to use any of these skins or do you only want these features in your own skin?

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    I just made changes to the match preview panel in my (WIP) 1.3 version and the match analysis screen. (I changed the faces only to kits, which I think looks cleaner). Let's see how long it will take in other skins to show up LOL ;-))))))
