Hi there

Thanks for your work!

A question: how do you install it?

EDIT

Solved, reading your instructions in 2015 thread

"

How to install :

Extract the content of the zip file at the root of your /skin 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 then click on the Interface tab.

You should see two "HelveticaLite RC1..." as options in the skin drop down menu of the Overview box.

Choose yours then press the Confirm button."

Is there will be a dark one? I know you started a thread for the FM15 one, but I don't know if you finally did it, and I found the idea pretty cool, I kinda prefer dark ones!

Great job btw, still a lovely skin!

Could you upload the file to another site, like Mediafire? I get a malware warning when I try the download link.

Ge.tt is secure, but i uploaded the file to Mediafire to avoid any problem. Updated link in my first post.

The coach/scout report of a player is abit strange, as some of the Pros of a player are highlighted with red icons, which I normally associate with Cons. Any way to change this? Or maybe a simple guide and I can do it myself as the red icons are confusing me alot:)

The colours can be change in the settings file. Should be in the skins folder. have a text search for 'pro high' the should be 3 pro and 3 con colours you can effect with the numbers.

That is strange, because all seems fine to me, regarding to this screenshot :

Edit : hmm i see, there are some pro icons which get a red colour. I absolutely don't know why at this moment, i'll see...

Great work with the skin! The start screen alone is very tempting for people to convince them into downloading lol

Ge.tt is secure, but i uploaded the file to Mediafire to avoid any problem. Updated link in my first post.

I've uploaded the file to our download server if you wish to add it as a download mirror. And I'll gladly host all new versions for you :)

Can't really find the instant result button.....

I had same kind of problem at first and it´s because you overwrote whole folder. You need to put those files inside the folder without overwriting all stuff in there. [sorry my english :p].

Looks nice. Too bad there won't be a dark version of this. Are you you don't want to make one?

I especially like the main menu background picture:D

I hate them, but i'll provide you with an alternative xml file to get the original layout.

Looks great, thanks Dr Swit!

edit: spotted that the black txt in the image below (overview, news etc...) is the teams' secondary(?) color... could you make it that it becomes white everywhere? as the title bar is dark gray everywhere...

How do I adjust the skin so that the header and titlebar will recolour while keeping that function deactivated for the sidebar?

Same problem. All clubs with black as secondary colour have this problem, plase fix that.

And potential changes on "atributes page" (a lot free space).

Nearly perfect! Only one thing missing in my opinion. Attribute changes in the player profile panel please :rolleyes:

I second this.

Along with the team color "issue" fixed, this would be very nice to have.

Skin looks great. First one I like for FM16.

But is there possibility to make text and some things a bit more darker and sharper. For example match sharpnes and condition in tactics screen. Some places the light background goes to in with lighter and smaller text and it is hard to understand.

Thanks and cant wait for update.

To all : To enable recolouring of header, titlebar and titlebar search panels :

1) simply delete or rename header.xml and titlebar search panel.xml

2) then replace the bold text at line 110 in client object browser.xml :

from :


<!-- coloured actions bar image -->
<widget class="bordered_box" id="ACTb" appearance="boxes/custom/interface/tab bar/paper" [b]red_replacement="blak" green_replacement="blak"[/b]/>

to :


<!-- coloured actions bar image -->
<widget class="bordered_box" id="ACTb" appearance="boxes/custom/interface/tab bar/paper" [b]red_replacement="primary" green_replacement="primary"[/b]/>

To all : i don't know at this moment how to stop recolouring of the menus in the action and menu bar.

To Kruna : i simply added player profile.xml file from ArtDekDok mods. You can delete this file to get the original layout back.

To xskydrone : the "show recent attribute changes" is working fine in player profile, just reload the skin or the game.

Hmm, that doesn't doesn't seem to work for me. Title bar and header are still not recoloring. I've tried reloading the skin and also restarting the game.
