    [FM19][SKIN] TCS '19

    Sorry to have to come back with a problem which I'm hoping is just me? I'm not at my computer right now so cannot show in a picture but all the staff their attributes are all in black which makes them very hard to read? I have changed to different skins (original plus others) and they are fine so not sure why the text would show up in black? Thanks again for a really clean clutter free skin that's easy on the eyes.

    Loving the skin so far and appreciate you making it. May I ask the Training/Coaches screen all the text at the top of the screen that tells you how man coaches you have and the boards concerns is all in black instead of white? It's hard to read in any of the skins, apart from all is good. Thanks. EDIT - I forgot to mention in the Home screen in the top left is the next fixture to text on the right of the oppositions manager is in white instead of black and is unreadable with a yellow background (Dortmund) EDIT 2 - The same for the Transfer/Transfer Status of a player is also in black instead of being white to the right of the player picture.

    Team landing screen

    This probably doesn't help but I too have the exact same problem as TheMaestro88. It is frustrating to say the least that no matter whether you have Profile set it will revert back to Squad unless you go back to Settings and reload the skin etc every time and then it's rinse and repeat again a short while later.

    [FM17] CFM Skin 2017 - v1.01D | v2.1D | v2.1L

    Something I've noticed on the 2.1D is that there is no Social Feed manage button. I've not picked up FM17 for a while and was struggling to think how do I change my Social Feed settings? I change back to the original FM17 Dark skin and it's there in the bottom right a manage button. So @pikawa94 please could you add a Social Feed manage button to save changing skins? Thanks. EDIT - LMAO I found the manage button in the upper left of the central box by accident as I was clicking around the screen.

    Funny Screenshots Thread

    Nigel Pearson is delusional when he says my Wolves were "lucky" to win 1-7 at Hillsborough.
  7. HA HA you beat me to it, was so busy about thinking what to put to help out.
  8. I'm no tactical guru so maybe I'm going to be way off the mark here but where are you conceding the goals from? Your problem may still be on your flanks? The 2 WB's are on attack duty so will be more interested in going forward than back (to track opposition players). The it maybe down to your actual structure of your 3 CB's. The 2 outer ones maybe on a Cover duty as then one of them would push out wider if there was a threat down the wing, leaving the other 2 to stay central. I understand why you may have a BPD but why not make him into a Stopper? This way he would be more prone to staying in a central location and not drawn out wide. I like the idea of a Anchor but maybe this is where your not getting help in going forward in central positions as he's too deep? One final thought have a download of the document found in this thread - http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/375632-Pairs-amp-Combinations-FM2015-UPDATED This will help you in setting up some of your players (like the 3 CB's)
  9. Could do no worse and visit here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/444680-The-Art-of-Counter-Attacking or here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/445500-The-Art-of-Possession-Football Have a proper read and post if you feel you need more advice

    3 * league 2 players?

    They are all in relation to your best player. If you signed say a decent Premier League player then all your players would then probably show up a 1 1/2 or 1 star players due to how inferior they would be to that player you'd signed.

    Just downloaded this and it looks really good theBantams. Having not read the full thread I hope this hasn't already come up but when you click on the World drop down the text overlays itself on whatever screen you were on and is unreadable. EDIT - Sorry it's not overly clear but you can still make out that the text has overlayed itself and makes it unreadable.

    For a comparison this is how mine now looks, only slightly different to your own screenshot.

    Funny I've tried the xml's which we discussed and it didn't work as I PM'd you but went back and revisited post #10 and bang IT WORKS. Though not in the way you show. Yes the upper box has 5 options in it's drop down including Finance & Salary but my container is only half the size with another drop down with the regular 4 options. Weird....either way it works and I'm a happy bunny. Thank you m@rk for your time in helping me out and the excellent work in the skin.

    [FM16][SKIN] Aurum 2016

    Well sadly as stated in our PM it didn't work? So I've copied and pasted the the club overview panel from the wannachupbrew skin (also used by FMTGW Official skin) into your Panels folder and yes it works but this is what is now looks like as some of the other sections have disappeared?

    [FM16][SKIN] Aurum 2016

    I really do like the crisp look of the skin. May I ask for one thing please? It may be considered "cheating" but in some other skins like the wannachupbrew skin it contains financial & salary information on the club overview screen for any team. When copying this file over, yes it works but several other panels on that screen go blank? Could you please have financial & salary in one of the drop down menus on the club overview screen please? Thanks.
