You can change them in the preferences menu, under interface.

take it no one gets that this guy is doing this off his own back and has a life out side of fm and these forums. Also it is also the silly season so get off the guy's back ffs. Tom release it when it's ready mate, your work is always good and worth waiting for

Cheers mate, and take your time. Your skins have always been immense!

The only thing I change is the attribute colours otherwise it's beyond perfect.

Do you think this skin will be out before fm15?
what a total xxxxxx I love the negative comments from those who have contributed so much here and are obviously producing skins/facepacks/logos etc like Tom and others are doing :herman: if some are not happy with the delay move along and use another skin.....or here's an idea MAKE YOUR OWN:rolleyes: and leave the guy alone

Not if people keep posting inane rubbish like this, no.
i've lost interest.

Ever hear of patience? What skin have you done for the community?

Stop the silly posts saying you've lost patience etc. If you've lost patience then fine stay out of the thread.

Creating a skin takes time and its not a good time of year right now for most people with families etc because its Christmas so involves going out, seeing friends/family etc. Have some respect and patience. Any more rubbish and I'll hand infractions out.

If anyone else posts a silly needless comment please report it and I'll take the required action.

Tom ... I have been around the forums for a number of years now and have always wondered ..why the name Steklo?

I have loved your skins by the way ...great work.

I have often wondered this actually.

And Tom take as long as is needed, the skins you produce are always top notch!

I've got a long standing habit of naming my skins after relevant words, translated into various languages. Steklo is the phoenetic pronunciation of Glass in Russian.

Every time this thread gets new replies from Tom it gets my hopes up just a little :p Really looking forward to you having this ready, mate - take all the time you need, as Steklo should always be the very best it can be :)

In case anyone is wondering what's taking so long, I'm trying to get this screen to look right:

At the moment it either looks like that (which works, but looks odd) or things end up cut off if I remove the background but and let the header panel autosize itself (it's hard coded to 145 pixels)

Where is the pitch? Is it replaced with the background during in between highlights? Which things end up cut off?

That's a completed match, I've not tried it in an actual game yet

Can you try it and show us how it looks? BTW, is that the only thing that is holding up the release or is there something else that you are still working on?

It's pretty much the only complicated thing that's left, the rest of it is deciding what the match widget boxes will look like and doing a bit of something for the main menu

looks like you need a beta tester to help you catch those bugs before release, nope, not me, someone you know and trust not to leak it.

*checks*

nope, it's not released, so the bug has been caught before release, nesspa? :p

I might have to re-engineer the header to be a bit more conventional, unfortunately. I'll have to have a bit of a think.

c'est vrai.

My attempt to help was that with that guy focusing on mounting traps to catch the buggers, you could focus on development.

To those having a dig at the time it is taking, Tom doesn't get paid for this and there is a thing called real life which tends to get in the way of video games from time to time. I don't mind the wait, there are 10 more months until FM 15 and this is the most professionally developed skin released each year.

Keep it up, and I'd love to test the skin on some high resolutions (2560 x 1440) for you if you'd like?

Stop the bitching or I'm going to start handing warnings out from here on out.

I agree its pretty cheeky to moan about a skin not being released when it is a lot of work, free to download and a great addition to the game due to the quality of the talented designers such as Tom, but I would question the logic of creating this WIP post when it was clearly (and understandably) going to be a while before it came out? There is no value in advertising the product prior to release so why not just save the posting for when the skin is ready and all this e-animosity would be avoided...?

I reckon this thread should be closed as its getting pretty tiresome now,it'll be made when its ready.Football manager is great but its not the end of the ******* world guys!!!!

The thread does have value, because there are people (like myself) who enjoy seeing the progress pictures and updates as Tom posts them. Whether that's justification enough versus the continuous inanity is another matter, though.

If its tiresome for you, you don't need to be subscribed to it. Nobody's forcing you to stay tuned for the news / announcement when the skin is being released ;)

I'm having one of my lack of motivation periods (not because of people complaining or anything as drama queen as that) I'm just struggling to come up with a concept that is close to what I originally conceived, but will work as a more conventional header. Once I've come up with something (inspiration can strike at any time) I'll post an update. Once I do come up with something, it shouldn't take long to finish, as most of the work is done. I'm sorry it's taken this long, but some of SI's recent changes have made it trickier for me to change the areas I like to change (like the header).

So you have to change the header just so it works during match? That's so unfortunate.....I hope you find a way.

By the looks of it, aye. I'm not sure why pausing a match causes a crash, so I'm wary of trying to fix it (or even if it's fixable)

But it is when u constantly come onto the forum telling the guy to hurry up an all that..Actually surprised the guy is continuing with it to be honest.

That I agree with - that is tiresome. But why should the thread be closed because of it, and why should we lose out? We're all better than that so let us smother out those nuisance and childish posts :)

Tom, do you play the game whilst developing the skin or just focus on the skin. All these people moaning can get on and play the game whereas I am thinking you don't get too much game time

I think you should release it even if pausing a match causes a crash. Your last Steklo also had some minor bugs but they didn't make the game unplayable.

There are loads of us that are not impatient and are extremely grateful for your work Tom..... Looking forward to this skin. As ive said many many times before, this is the best skin by a million miles. FM wouldn't be the same without it.
