[FM15][SKIN]Vexillium XXCXV

Recommended Posts

INTRODUCING VEXILLIUM XXCXV - THE ALL-IN-ONE SKIN FOR FM2015

Derived from the word 'vexillum' which means banner in Latin, this dark skin will suit any player. This skin supports both the in-game editor and instant results button as well as user backgrounds. This is the first major release so I expect to see a few bugs somewhere along the line (although I have stress-tested this as much as possible to minimise this possibility)

SCREENSHOTS:

INSTALLATION:

Extract the Vexillium folder to:

C:/Users/<yourusername>/My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/skins

If this folder does not exist, create it.

CHANGELOG:

13/01/15 - Initial Release - v1.0

19/01/15 - Updated to v1.1

1. Rearranged the overall layout so the Navigation, continue and preferences button are back in the titlebar, still need to place continue button in header rather than titlebar so that it resizes correctly.

2. Made the above mentioned buttons change colour dependant on team secondary colour.

3. Changed most fonts to Trebuchet for compatibility with foreign languages.

4. Altered the match titlebar slightly.

5. Changed score/time font in match titlebar score to match the match titlebar fonts.

6. Corrected stretching issues with club details panel in club overview.

7. Other misc changes.

20/01/15 - Updated to v1.11:

1. Player picture removed from player details panel in favour of a larger shirt back, Premiership style font used for the names.

2. Moved player picture to display in the sidebar on player screens.

26/01/15 - Updated to v1.2:

1. Autograph panel added to player details panel.

2. Instant result button reincluded.

3. Default style key employees panel added to player overview panel.

4. New dialog boxes (Standard and Match).

5. Continue button enlarged to stop truncation of text.

6. Removal of staff picture in non player overview panel.

7. Fixed Last Starting XI in club overview panel.

8. Few other misc changes

01/02/15 - updated to v1.21

1. Fixed crash dumps on player overview screens.

2. Changed the layout of the player overview slightly so it adapts better at smaller resolutions.

CREDITS:

wannachupbrew for the player details panels.

dave byrd for the base skin, Dynamic, that I worked from.

Flut for his work on the club overview panels (I have modified them slightly)

Anyone else I've missed.

PLEASE NOTE:

This skin is best played at a zoom level of 75%, especially when played at low resolution.

It is indeed stockportguy, includes a background and opacity selector and uses stadium/club/player backgrounds by default if installed

Daft question - I have a backgorund selector in my skin, can the backgrounds be set so it use the stadium backgrounds on certain pages instead of the selected one? or is it either stadium pics or selected?

It already does that by default wkdsoul, itll use stadium pics on pages that have them and a default background for pages that don't. To change the default background you have to overwrite the default.png file in the graphics/backgrounds folder.

my skin always shows the default "skins/myskin/graphics/background" pic...

No they don't, but you have to have the stadium pic backgrounds selected in the background selector (its the one on far left)

Hello,

Great skin, one complaint from me however is scrolling bar is appearing for me on the left menu at 95%.. 75% ensures its ok but everything is so small!

Perhaps if the header was smaller it wouldnt take so much room? :)

I will create a version with a smaller header for higher zoom levels. The skin was created using a resolution of 1440x900 and a zoom of 75%.

Yes steff it will, I play in windowed mode exclusively.

Its recommended that you play at 75% zoom at smaller resolutions though or 6oull get a scrolling sidebar like Gunner has.

I don't think making the header smaller will make a massive difference to the scrolling at really low resolutions at high zoom, I'll have a play with making the sidebar table row heights smaller as that might help more. Moving the FM button back into the header might help too.

Do you have a screenshot steff so I can see how much of the sidebar scrolls for you?

Anymore bugs or anomalies anyone has noticed?
I noticed that on the last starting XI panel when I looked at Arsenal, it gave Everton's line up (who they played last) instead of Arsenal's. Great skin though mate, really like it a lot :)

@willz: What zoom level are you playing at? I think its because Flut designed the panels to work at his default resolution but it doesn't stretch well to others (especially small res) Ill take at look at how the panel stretches and amend it to work better at small resolutions.

@FCUtdWill: Yep I've noticed that too, i think its a residual bug from Dynamic or the Flut panels, will check the coding for it on the default skin and amend for the update tomorrow. I think that's the only actual 'bug' there is at the moment which isn't bad going for a skin at first release.

Ive fixed the sidebar so it doesn't scroll at 100% zoom and lower. I can't cater for anyone that plays the game at 125% or above however. I've also fixed the club details panel so that doesnt scroll either. Trying to fix the key staff panel so it appears correctly at different zooms/resolutions but had no joy yet. If it bothers anyone, you can go back to using the de%ault club overview by deleting club overview panel.xml from the panels folder. Only problem with fixing the sidebar is that there are now no icons, just text. Need to go through all the sidebar icons and reduce the size of all of them to fit. Will get an update up no later than Sunday evening.

Is an amazing skin. I forced myself to play in 75% just to enjoy this skin completly. I would reccomend to make the gray text a bit lighter, maybe white, because sometimes is kinda hard to read to be honest.

Still the same a dunno whats goin must be some sort of problem with the actual pack itself.

@steff: Must be the pack then, very odd, try deleting all the packs files and reinstalling.

@nwo: Wont have long to wait, new update today around 4pm when I get out of work. I've moved the back/next, continue and FM buttons back into the header. The sidebar shouldnt scroll at zooms below 100% now. All of these butto/s also change colour dependant on team colours. Ive also changed all the grey fonts to white. Updated the club details panel so it doesn't scroll at high zooms up to 100%. The key employees panel doesnt stretch at some resolutions/zooms so i might supply an alternative panel for people whom it doesnt work for.

@wkdsoul: open your club overview panel and in the panel that controls the key employees it should link you to a file that controls those image sizes. I know I'm not being very precise but I'm away from my actual computer right now.

Screenshots of upcoming v1.1:
