    Show your skin... and inspire

    Did you bring older panels/pieces of code back or edit the new ones? I edited the new file (tact. overview side panel or something like that) almost exclusively. It was a lot of playing around with/changing insets/alignments. Tedious more than anything. I can definitely see why people might have an issue with it though as it's unlike any other page to mod. so I'm not surprised by that or if they just flat out avoided it. I wouldn't recommend it tbh. For what we can achieve it's debatable whether it's really worth it. We can only really move a few things around. It's quite limiting, even for skinning. I agree the layout was prob. better last year but it's marginal. I'm not sure about the functionality either. Navigating back and forth between pages seemed to cause some issues if I remember correctly (at least for me and my tentative attempt). There's also a lot of tactical, instruction, comparison, etc. pages linked not shown which really need adjusting too. It all adds up. I did the player instruction one but then stopped there as it dawned on me it's not much better and functionality might be impacted anyway. Now I feel the exact opposite way about the match screens What you've done there is impressive and substantially different to the default, even if I wasn't keen on it in FM18. I'm sure a lot of people will prefer it and last year's layout. @bluestillidie00 didn't you want something similar on the main tactics screen a while back? You'd think you'd be able to move it across. I didn't even attempt to edit the tactics screens to this extent last year though (did anyone?) so even with everything said, it's better compared to '18 at least. The main thing this year for me has been the tactics icons though, they are much more responsive and stable. Trying to combine everything really effected functionality hence why a lot of skins avoided it last year, i.e. in your match tactic icons there's no need to continue with just the role/media description. You can bring back the role assigner now without having to compromise (see Mahrez below).

    It's really not worth the time or energy. Everyone is wise to leave it alone. I'm not convinced it's stable plus there's quite a few linked pages which need adjusting otherwise they look off too. If you don't know what you're doing the potential effort it's going to take will out-weigh the rewards. I reverted back to the new layout but managed something similar when experimenting.

    The thread (your thread in fact) was closed because Michael stated 'paid for' skins aren't allowed here. Any issues with how the skin was represented PM him, I'm going off the impression he gave. In the post anybody can still read now. (it still used people's work without permission) Now just leave it. I don't see the point in stirring it all up again.

    I was asked to post that hence the 'due to requests'. I wasn't going to tbh. His comments clear it all up though I can agree on that.

    I'm going to respond via PM now to you (and anybody else) 'cos we both know I'm going to be solely excused of going off topic again although I'm just responding to you and the author reignited the debate (yet again).

    I've spoken to Jovovich, he does NOT have permission to use his work in any paid for version. So you're only being provided half of the info. by the author who is being selective with the truth at best or purposely misleading at worst. What has happened is he has permission to use it for his free version only but to save face he's not going to release it in his free skin as it will a) show he was never allowed to release it in his paid for skin as we all said from the very start and b) it also shows despite his claims, the free skin and the community are of little concern to him and his motivations have always been purely about the enhanced version. Otherwise he'd release it to all his loyal fans (none of us here arguing 'on the dark side' use his skin, we all know about skinning and make our own, so he's not effecting us one bit by keeping it out). BTW I have the message in my PM from Jovovich and will happily provide it if you wish? Clinched was removed from this very forum last year for the exact same reason. Using Jovovich's work without permission behind a paywall. He's very lucky this place isn't really moderated and the previous one involved doesn't understand entirely what is going on, the history or how the skinning community works. The free skin is a complete irrelevance to this whole discussion but as I predicted has been used as a tool to distract from the real issue. I can also find the link to the Clinched skin debate last year and will happily provide this too if you wish? The fact that everybody let this guy get away with what he's been doing this long shows we weren't looking for an argument. Charging for other peoples work has always been wrong regardless of whether it's also in a free skin. No part of that is right. But now to EXCLUSIVELY put others work in a paid for skin, personally was a step too far and too much for me to not challenge. And before the author whinges about 'off topic' again. Yet again it your naive followers re-starting the debate after you played the victim. The only victim(s) is people like Jovovich and Rick.

    OK for paid version or free version? There's a world of difference. And to ignore that factor completely is either being selective with the truth or stupid considering that's what all this has been about.

    Bit hypocritical you didn't pull up the other guy (you actually thanked him)...but then he was supporting you... It was also your advertising of the 'enhanced version' which prompted all of this. That has nothing to do with the released skin here either. Going by your own rules, you've been 'off topic' as much as anyone. But to be completely honest I don't think you are in any position to be preaching about 'rules' full stop. I'm happy to let the mods do their thing so please don't try and portray me negatively and I won't say another word on the matter. Anything else PM me (to anyone).

    I wouldn't be so sure of it. As skinning is such a community driven 'pursuit'. Hosting and allowing someone to charge for other's work will never go down well and has potential to do the community a lot of damage as it's so reliant on people's good-will. Why would a site want to alienate its contributors? Allowing it will only discourage and result in people refraining from releasing content there in future. This has already had a very negative effect on one prominent skinner and that's not including Jovovich. It would be subject to complaints on any of the main sites I'm sure (it's why I'm so surprised it's been allowed on here for so long. This thread is also actually more an advert for the enhanced version than anything else, i.e. all that talk re. selectors and it's not even in the skin available here). The skinning community is struggling compared to how it used to be as it. Not looking for an argument, I understand your opinion on the matter and that you're now somewhat committed to defending given you've paid. And that's unlikely to change. As the mods already looking at it prob best not to say too much else so it doesn't re-escalate. Just for info. but hopefully you/anyone else understands the repercussions a little better.

    With all due respect moving around a few containers isn't where the work is. I've changed every single one of their titlebar panels (extensively, over 10 in fact with more added, graphically and in terms of layout) and yet still don't even consider myself to have done the majority of the work on the selectors I use in my own skin. The elaborate coding is in the selectors themselves. From what I've seen here in this thread, 90% if not more of the work is still Jovanovich's/fmnation's. I personally think you're on really dodgy ground including their work in something others will have to pay you for. I can't speak for them but I'd be pissed if it was my creation. Without doubt it will encourage some to pay and therein lies the problem. You are being rewarded for work you had minimal hand in and they the real creators are not. (To reiterate editing the match titlebar.xml is peanuts in relation to the mod as a whole).

    As the author of the skin doesn't want this discussed further here PM me if you or anyone wants help with this. There's more to selectors then just the 'relevant' panel folder. I'm not convinced you have the right folder plus code needs to be added elsewhere. Then there's the graphics. It definitely copies across perfectly fine from FM18 just like a normal background or logo selector has done for years. The match titlebars I'm currently using are even based on the same coding.

    The scoreboard graphics (which is where the real work is, along with the selector coding) look identical. Mila also had the other leagues you mentioned so presumably it's all the same thing (who created it first is another matter although I'm sure I've seen Jovanovich mentioned in connection with fmnation anyway). My main point is the scoreboards are already out there for anybody interested (the graphics that is, the top right variations just looks like container moving, so admittedly isn't/wasn't of much significance to my thoughts). Whilst my secondary, more focused point probably to a few, was just caution in terms of anybody thinking of moving the time-line to the bottom. Those scoreboards at the top take up more space then the default whilst space is obviously lost from the bottom of the screen too so it stands to reason it could potentially squash some things and adjustments may be required. I know it'd wreck even my preview lineups for example and mine is laid-out more favourably for this than most, being horizontal. It would effect any preview lineups page of any skin. Personally, if I was going to move the time-line down, it'd be the first edit I did to the match screens so I could work around it accordingly. So like I said just some considerations and thinking ahead, especially for DIYers. Those scoreboard graphics being out there already was the main thing though.

    The same scoreboard selector was in the Mila skin last year (hosted in this forum) and can be copied across if all the correct paths are followed. The match time-line wasn't at the bottom of the screen in that skin. Depending on your POV, that could be a blessing though as it's potential inclusion at the bottom could effect alignments, sizing and possible container overlaps on a number of screens (i.e. preview lineups, in-between highlights, etc.) Just for info.
