==================================================================

INFO:

==================================================================

Due to popular demand, the Vitrex skin returns for Football Manager 2016.

Important: When updating this skin, make sure to ERASE the older version BEFORE installing the new. Don't extract into skins folder if you already have another Vitrex folder by the same name, this will merge them together and ruin the skin!

This skin is optimized for higher resolutions (minimum of 1920x1080) and might cause errors if you try to use it at a lower resolution.

I love this skin, it's almost perfect for me. Unfortunately, I have this issue. I'm on windowed mode on my laptop

AhoNNWA.png

The 1.1 version was doing that for me too. Annoying but not major for me.

For the hi-res panels to show all details, you must be in full screen mode with resolution of at least 1920 x 1080. It will be cut off if playing in windows mode or even borderless.

Your best bet is to switch over to the low-res panel included if you want to continue playing in window mode, which I did too.

The additional files are included in the download,just drop the low res panel into ur panel folder and overwrite when prompted.Sorted.

Weird, the lo-res panels folder is empty, there's only stuff in the hi-res one.

How do you do this please?

There should be a folder name "---VITREX MODS---" included, if not re-download the file.

Just go into the folder "Player profile view\Low-Res Friendly" and copy the files into your directory "Football Manager 2016\skins\Vitrex16 2.0\panels".

This will overwrite some existing files, which is ok. Reload skin afterwards.

Re-download the file. It was updated awhile ago.

Well the names are hard to read :)

In another thread, DimitriFromParis has give me a solution:

Emil has included an fix for this, already in the skin folders, as it's not that easy just changing the colour on the shirts. This fix is also better imo:

Go to:

C:\ User \ Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2016\ skins \ Vitrex16 2.0 \ graphics \ pictures \ kits \ 2d \ outfield \ back \ tactics:

You will find a couple of folders and picture files. The picture files are the ones we are after. To be exact, these two:

overlay.png

and

overlay_.png

Delete (or rename) 'overlay.png' and change 'overlay_.png' to 'overlay.png' like the one you just deleted. In other words you just erase the '_' sign from the name.

Reload game, and you are good to go.

Where do you mean? I see flags? It depends on your downloads packs, not the skin:

Ah, I see. How about subscriptions? :)

Edit #20: Actually, how do I change the color of report stars? I'd like to have silver and yellow like on vanilla, not yellow and yellow which is very confusing.

i solved it that way:

Tactics_-2.png

i also fixed some panels which made player name disappear due to changing size of the kits, when e.g. 5 players played in arow (like in the pic above).

i already asked Emil about sending him panels and graphics.

Those player shirts look really, well done!

FYI Emil has been banned for no apparent reason (just like Barts and DazS8) other than he had a small innocent confrontation with an admin on here in like 2012 or something, so he won't respond in here anymore.

I reccomend you to contact him on FMScout, where he has a profile, or on SortItOutSI as well. Worst case you can PM me, and i will give him the info as we are friends irl.

Thanks.

Dimitri, have you guys changed anything in ''client object browser.xml'' since 1.1? I'm playing on 1.1 currently and I managed to activate auto hide sidebar, I'm asking if I can just copy old file over the new one, or I have to edit v2.0 file?

Cheers, great skin!

Hi Skald.

Yes Emil has changed it i know, as he has included the backgrounds selector in 2.0 which makes use of code in the ''client object browser.xml'' file.

Thanks, managed to enable it again. :) If someone wants it, I can upload panels.

Anyway, I have problem with player names on tactics screen, they are almost invisible on white shirts. Any way to change names' colors maybe?

Nicely done, but ... I use ordinary basic dark skin. I would like to put your wonderful mods, but they are not working. Why? You tried to put their own mods to another skin? Try and write the result.

Unfortunately, my question is ignored

Can you share your skin with us?

Why does the tactics panel fetch the last name of the player when some players have different name in the back of their shirt? For example Bernardo Silva, my tactics panel shows "Bernardo Silva" when in the match engine he only uses "Bernardo" in his shirt, just like "Oxlade-Chamberlain" uses only "Chamberlain".
