14.1.2015 - New release 1.0

Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you me and my friend Emil's new skin Vitrex MMXV: A stylish, dark skin for FMer's playing on 1920x1080 resolution, adding loads of nice visual and interface tweaks, making the game even more enjoyable.

The skin is named after the two latin words victorem and rex, with a twist, the first one meaning winner/champion and the latter king. MMXV is the year 2015.

We want to thank DazS8, michaeltmurrayuk‎, wannchupbrew, theBantams, ArtDekDok and wkdsoul for adding to this skin in one or the other way (sorry if we forgot someone, and if so, please let us know).

Looks perfect, I will give it a try. Thank you!

Edit: How can I use my league's TV logo in the match screen? (instead of CORA3) And is it possible to see different TV logo in CL?

It's our TV's logo buyukcekmece-digiturk-bayileri-0538-695-73-73.jpeg

Looks great, some things missing here and there but only coz i play windowed. Looks really slick. if i didnt make my own i'd use this :)

You finally got the scout report to fit? I just made the thing customisable like the squad/team lists, was too much faffing trying to find the description codes.

I'm playing in 1440*900 %100 zoom, and especially on the player screen it doesn't fit(can't read some texts and some panels are weird).

Can you make it compatible with this resolution also? I will be really grateful.

I didnt release it, its just a mishmash of all my fav bits, a new sidebar/icons and some tweaks and shifting of stuff here and there. I cant stop fiddling with things i see. Ive had the game since launch put maybe 2 weeks in the actual 'game' lol.

Haha yeh gets a bit like that at times,i know a good few people who are more interested in tech and moddying rather than actual playing the game itself.

Yeah i did in the end. It helped reducing the width of the inbox panel as well.

Never thought of that, might actually be a good idea to make them changeable in game!

Yes it is possible.

Download this picture and rename it to espn.png.

And put it into your "C:\User\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2015\skins\vitrex2015\graphics\icons\logos" folder.

panels and open the file "client object browser"

Go to the line : <attachment class="test_screen_size_attachment" alignment="horizontal" min_value="0" max_value="0" set_property="widt" true_value="45" false_value="160"

Change the max_value="0" to 1400, then save, reload your skin and it should work.

yeh, i have to say it looks a tad too much with new sidebar... simplicity is the way :D

Just to clarify for those reading the last few posts. The new icons in this skin are the scouting report ones, not the sidebar (thats just my own skin pics)

The sidebar in Vitrex is still the blue one in the OP shots.

HI there,

First off, let me just say how much I like what you have done with this skin. It's by far the best one I've used for FM, period!

I do have one question though: I'm currently playing in the Danish leage, and there is one thing that catches my OCD eye - the Danish special characters (Æ. Ø, Å) seem to be missing from the "Match day ticket". Here is should say Brøndby Stadion, Brøndby and BRØNDBY VS. AAB, bu the Øs are missing.

Is there a way to easily fix this - replacing the font used here, maybe?

Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.

Hi there.

Good point! Æ and Å is there, but you are right, the Dolce font doesn't have a Ø unfortunately.

Anyway there is a quite easy fix. Actually two. One is a little quicker than the other.

1: Open the file match preview panel.xml found in the panels folder inside the skin folder. Open it with a good text editor, for example NotePad++ which is free. In the xml file, you will find the Dolce and Dolce2 font mentioned 9 times all together. Change those to whatever font you like within the fonts folder inside the skin folder. "ProximaNova-Reg" is the standard text throughout FM, try that, and see if you like it. If you have a custom fint you like, just put the font like into the fonts folder, and change the Dolce/Dolce2 tags within the xml file to whatever the name of your font is.

2: The quickest way to change without doing any coding, is to simply delete the Dolce and Dolce2 font files from the fonts folder within the skin folder. BUT if you do, you need to replace it with another font you like, and rename that font to Dolce, make a second copy and call that Dolce2. If you fail to have font files called Dolce and Dolce2 in the folder, the game will possibly not show any text on the ticket - or possibly just fall back to the standard text, i am not 100% sure. Anyway i am sure you get the point. The only thing about method 2 that might be a problem, is that by changing the Dolce fonts to another type of font with the same name, you will have the same text type in the main menu of the game, as that also use the same font as the ticket.

Hope that helped you, and glad you like the skin.

Update coming soon btw.
