Unzip then place the "helveticalite" folder into your skins folder:

Windows: \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins\

Mac OS X: /Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/skins/

Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

Start the game and go to Preferences screen and Interface tab.

You should see "HelveticaLite Instant Result" as option in the skin drop down of the Overview box.

Hit the Confirm button.

To get the same squad view than on screenshots, place the "views" folder at the root of \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\ or for Mac OS /Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015.

To Minigod and ClemB (oui, je parle français ;)) :

i will modify it tonight (and why not to provide an alternative version with a mini sidebar, just with icons and without texts. I think of a dark grey sidebar, more neutral. What do you think ?

And about the white text which is hard to read on some panels, yes i'm aware of this issue. I do not find which tag controls it. I keep working on it ;)

I just tried at your resolution (in Windowed mode) and it works fine. Maybe you can try to start the game using the original skin, THEN once your game started, to go to the preferences and change the skin. Let me know if it works.

Do not start the game with my skin in this case. Delete my skin folder, then start the game using the original skin. Then unzip again my skin into the skin folder, then go to preferences and select my skin, it should work.

Really like the look of this skin but I am getting the same problem. Just a black screen. :(

As i never got this problem, in spite of i tested it on 3 different computers, i can't explain it. It may be the parent skin tag in the settings : <flags id="parent" value="fm" /> .

Edit the value in the file helveticalite.xml (at the root) and replace value="fm" by value="fm dark-widgets".

Otherwise, please try this :

Start the game with the original skin, then go to preferences > interface settings. Then, press the "Clear cache" button, then untick "use caching..." and tick "Reload skin...". Then select my skin and confirm.

Let me know if it works.

I love your skin, but I have some requests, I hope you can help me :)

XsuPVCl.png

Is it possible:

1- Change the color of that litle bar from gray to blue (don't know if you know what I mean);

2-When you move the mouse around those options (Transfer Offer, Transfer Status, etc), it should me marked by a color, try on the regular skin, you will know what I am refering.

3-The font is a litle big, I wanted to be a litle more small.

Y9pkMOS.png

Is it possible to make those two colors (gray and green) more darker?

gqHyJBi.png

Again font too big.

76WxrP3.png

Color too bright.

I hope you can help me sort this out, if you don't understand of my requests please tell me :)

Cheers for the update drswit, I tried the updated version and it worked straight away. Really nice skin, probably the nicest I have come across in three or four years, keep up the good work. If I come across any problems or little niggles I'll let you know in this thread.

Edit:

Thanks Pazzmon92 for your kind words. Yes, there is still some problems i have to fix. The main one is that i don't find which attribute controls that white text which clashes with light grey backgrounds. I'll keep searching ;)

The sidebar is grey from the version 1.1. Yours is pink because the sidebar picks up the primary or secondary colour of your club. I'll try to find if it may be fixed.

I worked on it yesterday, and on some new features (new stars and morale icons). But, as i still get a few problems to fix, i will release a new version only if i can fix them.

Really appreciate the effort drwsit but can I be as bold as to make one request, if it's even possible?

If you could, please make the graphical attribute analysis on the player attribute section bigger... Thanks.

What a disappointment to see today that the official release version of FM2015 does not have any light skin. My idea was to work from it.

Seriously, this dark skin is one of the worst one released in years... like an insult to any serious graphic designer (any interface designer knows it : an UI where the user will spends HOURS to kind of only reading TEXT (yea, FM is nothing else than a Excel viewer displaying stats) has to be relaxing for the eyes, it means... LIGHT. :eek:

In the meanwhile, i have worked around my skin, redone from scratch, thanks to the base skins provided by michaeltmurrayuk.

Main problems has been fixed, but i still have to fix a last annoying problem : the text colour of the menus, which is called by the same attribute than for the buttons.

Expect some news tonight i hope ;)

Ok, as i know it's frustrating to wait, let's play with the version 2.0 of the skin.

Main problems have been fixed, but be warned : there are still some minor problems to fix, as some menu icons colour, match fitness and competition stage tables texts which are too light.

That being said, it's playable and, i hope, enjoyable ;)

Please let me know about bugs.

PS : many thanks to michaeltmurrayuk‎ to have provided the base skins from which i worked.

HelveticaLite 2.0 with Instant Result.

Featuring :

- new star rating system

- new morale icons

- new physical panel

Hey man, I really love your skin and the update was very good, but I have some bugs in my game.

Here is a problem with a bid on one of my players.

And here is one with my tactic. You can see that there is a problem with the filters.

Also a problem with a contract proposal.
