[FM15] Skin released Aurum

Recommended Posts

latest pics and download link in post #19

I thought i'd spend some time playing around with this, mainly for myself but would happily share if anyone did want to download it.

still a few issues to iron out which i'm still working on but thought i'd post a couple of screenshots to get any opinions - good or bad!

the background is the grey colour you can see in #3, its the boxes and buttons that are pure black.

i could (i think) add some transparency to them so they are not as dark,

as i said its the first time i have tried to alter anything for myself but i can see why it may not suit other people, will have a look and see what I can do!

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated!

Look like an NES Arcade Game, so I'd call it "Arcade". :D

They should really have a like button on this site for other peoples comments lol.

But hey I love the work you've done on the sidebar icons :) What does your club overview look like?

thanks - i do like the sidebar so i've kept that

i have changed the whole colour scheme as it was exceptionally dark, i'll post some screenshots later when i finish work.

i spent a lot of time figuring out how to change the main menu to keep it in line with the new colours and making all of the buttons the same as for some reason they were not all boxes.....if I could just find out how to change the font colour i'd be happy!

I think i now appreciate how much work people put into making skins for the community as it is well difficult!

I hope this helps you with the font colour.

Scroll down and there will be some guidings about it. I don't know if it helps as I don't know the stepts in creating a skin.

All comunity work is apreciated as people take their time to make cool stuff for us.

Wish you all the best and good luck.

It might be worth doin what i did, opening an old FM14 skins or a few 15 skins and jsut seeing what files are there, most of the fm14 skins contain complete xml packs for lots of screen work.. the fonts folder usually contains a few xmls for various headers and pages so you can, probably by now glance through the code and see where the change/info you need is.

Fonts/Sizes/Colours and then into panel transparencies/edging and moving panels where first steps i made..

Locate the /panels/tactics opposition instructions panel.xml file, then add a colour tag (i put "grey4") at line 20:

<widget class="view_menu_label_match" id="TitL" embed_in_frame="true" [b]colour="grey4"[/b]>

I like it. I am a fan of the color schemes.

I notice some strangeness with my custom panels. Colors get messed up but then I switch screens go back and its normal again. Could just be me.

Excellent work I like it a lot.

Skin looks pretty good even if I'm not a fan of golden color.

Suggestion: Change the attribute colors to match the skin theme - yellow, orange, red are colors that work with it.

Daft question, did you notice if the divider lines in the sidebar, can they be colour seperately or are they just defined by an over "gold" code..

i didn't try and colour separately, all of the dividers (i think) are coloured gold by the RGB values in the settings file

i have toyed with the idea - and not a clue if it would work - of adding an image of a certain colour (not red) and setting the path, i.e picture" file="dividers/standard/horizontal/line" to the new image (f that makes sense) but not sure if the settings file RGB values would overwrite it.

You can recolour the dividers, though it will recolour every horizontal divider in the game (it doesn't seem possible to assign them to a different graphic, even though there is a line in the xml file it seems like the rest of the sidebar graphics some of the code in the xml files just isn't used - though it may work if you exit and restart the game as it seems some of sidebar content is only refreshed when starting the game), you also cannot have a different slider for each item in the sidebar (you might be able to hack one together by making it part of the icon graphic if the icons can be sliced up by the game so the divider would stretch with the sidebar).

There are two methods:

1. Recolour the 'divider' colour in the settings file as that is the colour the divider is assigned to

2. Edit the xml file associated with the divider graphic this is the xml file located in this location:

\skins\fm-widgets\graphics\dividers\standard\horizontal\

In the file edit this line:

<colour id="red_replacement" name="divider"/>

Either assign it to another colour, or delete the line to stop the graphic being recoloured by the game.

No idea it looks like it should be the sections\fixture sections.xml file however that only seems to work on the pre-match screens even though it has entries that should correspond to the match screens, though those items should be automatically resized by the game so I'm not sure why they are cut off for you.

EDIT: Yep this file does control that screen it just doesn't work correctly, sometimes it will resize the option sometimes it won't, not that that helps you...

updated link to skin. will work with 15.2

a lot of changes from initial upload, some text colouring to fit in with overall gold theme.

still need to update some logos for the sidebar, mainly those for international managers and unemployed (like myself after a shocking first season!)

for anyone using or wishing to have a look..

Hey Guys,

managed to get the skin on, and absolutely love it. Two problems though

When viewing a player I cannot see the players face? Even though I have a face pack on. And I cannot see the attributes :(
