[FM17][SKIN] Football Manager 2017 Base Skins

Recommended Posts

How do I fix the colour of the team names on this? Which panel do I need to edit? I did delete something by mistake but it didn't go to my recycle bin! Weird.

 

If you can point me to the panel and code that would be great! :) Thanks

 

It's the pop up that happens after the game when the score pops up.

If its to do with an instant result button you have added to the skin then the panel should be controlled by the 'match incidents overview popup right' and 'match incidents overview popup left' xml files located in the panels\match folder for the skin you are using, in those files locate these bits of code:

colour="match text"

and change it to read something like;

colour="text"

If those files aren't present you'll need to extract them guide here:

If that doesn't work then you are best checking with where you got the instant result button download from.

Does anybody know what controls the following screen or graphic? I'd like to change the colour of the TV icon to red or something that is a bit more visable.

You cannot really recolour it as it is hardcoded to appear yellow when you get extra money from being on TV and grey when you don't get extra money. (And FM17 doesn't allow you to change shade of the default colours).

You might be able to cheat by setting it back to use the TV text instead of the icon, it should be controlled by the 'competition fixtures item panel' xml file found in the panels\competition folder.

In that file you first need to comment out or delete the picture widget code for the TV icon and uncomment the old label widget.

Then once you have done that you should be able to use the gradient trick to recolour the text, instructions on how to do that can be found in this thread:

(You just need to add the font="<FONT_NAME>" bit to the above line you uncommented instead of the one in the linked thread.)

This may be an easy one for a lot of skinners, but how do I change the colour of the save game graphic? I have included a pic below, but I am wanting to change the colour of the progress bar and also the paper.png that is above and below the progress bar.

They are controlled by these values declared in the settings file:

<colour name="progress_empty" red="20" green="20" blue="20"/>
<colour name="progress_full" red="53" green="178" blue="196"/>
<colour name="processing_box_background" value="teal 900"/>

Thanks Michael, I'll have a play around with those and see what I can change them to

I was wondering if (see picture below) the text marked red can also be removed so one only sees the buttons on the far left of the screen. I've seen some screenshots of people not having the descriptions next to the buttons, but within my game currently they only remove when I make the screen smaller (which of course I do not want). Thanks for your input!

There is an icon only sidebar setting in the preferences, in-game.

Well, then mine was a stupid question! :idiot:

 

Another question then, just for the sake of it... I currently have the size of text and images at 85%. Could this be adjusted to even less?

No not really, you can adjust the font sizes (been asked a few times recently so have a search if it interests you) but that won't effect everything and probably won't look great because of that. What you request would basically require a complete re-size of the panel(s) which I'd only recommend for people proficient at skinning and would require a lot of work if required for every screen.

You can also just take the 'manager profile panel preferences' xml from the panels folder of FM16 and place it in the panels/human folder for your FM17 skin and it will re-add that box to the preferences screen.

As its a quick change here is the file; fm17managerpic.zip

Just unzip that and place the human folder in the panels folder for the base skin you are using, then reload the skin and go to the Preferences -> Interface Screen and the option to assign a manager picture should be back.

That should work for both full mode and touch skins, though I've only checked that it puts an image on the manager profile screen, I haven't tested it to see if it replaces the manager image elsewhere or if it causes any issues in other places.

I used this and it worked fine on the 17.2 version but doesn't work with 17.3 winter update. Any reason for this

ts been patched out, you'll have to wait for the skin makers to see IF a workaround can be found again...

Seems strange to patch it out, if anyone finds any solutions can you please post on here :)

I've been told it an oversight to let people import things in game. Tweeting Miles (@milesSI) or the football manager account would be the best way to let them know you want it back.

We'll have to keep looking, I'll see if I can get anything from Miles about this

How can i edit the opacity of the floating match panels (widgets)?

I tried my luck in photoshop with pretty much all black png files but it didn't change the above. Do i have to edit an xml?

You need to edit the transparency/opacity of the actual graphic.

Sounds like you know where the graphic is but here it is anyway: C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\skins\<skin name>\graphics\boxes\custom\match\widgets

I've had a search around the forum and can't find an answer for this so not sure if anyone can assist however, does anyone know if it's possible to edit the size of the facepack image on the 'news' screen? I'm using the dark base skin, realise I may have to create a new panel and fiddle around with the values a little bit.

The image on that panel is generated dynamically by the game depending on what item is shown, it should be possible to resize it but you would need to edit the xml files found in the panels/dynamic_images folder, there is a different file for each combination that can be displayed.

Then in each of those xml files that calls a player face locate the line that looks like this:

<widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="log1" image_alignment="bottom" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" wants_mouse_events="false"/>

And adding a height="X" and width="X" (might only need one as the as the other commands will tell it to keep its shape) bit to it should work, replacing the X with the values you want so it should look something like this:

<widget class="object_portrait_picture" id="log1" image_alignment="bottom" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" width="X" height="X" wants_mouse_events="false"/>

Many thanks Michael, really appreciate the help :thup:

Another quick Q. In previous versions a custom skin would show the stadiums of the team in question (Everton in the above example), would this be possible in this years version? I've tried copying a few panels across from FM16 with no luck. 

(The stadiums are downloaded from the FMC mini stadium superpack).

They should do, there are a few skins with them in, though the files might need updating and will need to go in the new locations for FM, should be a couple of threads around with instructions.

Cheers Michael, massive help as always. I've found the Vitrex skin which has these panels in allowing the stadiums to show. 

The two panels that help with the showing of the stadium are 'competition news image panel' and 'competition news panel'. The first screenshot below is with the 'competition news image panel' only but doesn't seem to show the stadiums on some of the news items (e.g. the main ones on the screen). When I put the 'competition news panel' in the panels folder and reload the skin, it does show the stadium on all the news items but messes around with the layout of the screen. I guess there'll be a certain part of that .xml which controls the stadiums shown behind the main news stories allowing me to delete the rest out so that the news screen configures correctly. Do you know which parts I would need to delete out/save? If not, no problems.

You can also just take the 'manager profile panel preferences' xml from the panels folder of FM16 and place it in the panels/human folder for your FM17 skin and it will re-add that box to the preferences screen.

As its a quick change here is the file; fm17managerpic.zip

Just unzip that and place the human folder in the panels folder for the base skin you are using, then reload the skin and go to the Preferences -> Interface Screen and the option to assign a manager picture should be back.

That should work for both full mode and touch skins, though I've only checked that it puts an image on the manager profile screen, I haven't tested it to see if it replaces the manager image elsewhere or if it causes any issues in other places.

this is a great thread many thanks:thup:

for some reason I cannot get this to work for me

Cheers Michael, massive help as always. I've found the Vitrex skin which has these panels in allowing the stadiums to show. 

The two panels that help with the showing of the stadium are 'competition news image panel' and 'competition news panel'. The first screenshot below is with the 'competition news image panel' only but doesn't seem to show the stadiums on some of the news items (e.g. the main ones on the screen). When I put the 'competition news panel' in the panels folder and reload the skin, it does show the stadium on all the news items but messes around with the layout of the screen. I guess there'll be a certain part of that .xml which controls the stadiums shown behind the main news stories allowing me to delete the rest out so that the news screen configures correctly. Do you know which parts I would need to delete out/save? If not, no problems. 

Screen 1 with just 'competition news image panel' included in the skin

 

 

 

 

Try replacing this code from the default 'competition new panel' xml file:

<!-- Dynamic news image -->
                                <container id="dynI" width="400">
                                    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" layout_children="true" />
                                    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="0" />
                                    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" />
                                </container>

With this code from the Vitrex skin as it looks like that is what is grabbing the stadium backgrounds instead of the dynamic backgrounds:

              <!-- News image -->
              <container width="400">
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" layout_children="true" />
                                    <layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="horizontal" inset="0" />
                                    <layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" />

                <widget class="competition_news_image_panel" id="impl" alignment="top" height="250" />
              </container>

You might need to mess around with the height and width values and the alignment to get it to fit correctly.

The Manager Picture was disabled by SI in patch 17.3 and at the moment there is no way (and not likely to be) any way to get it back.

mihael I have an issue with my eyesight and have to use the old zoom 125% feature now this causes problems as with some custom skins a lot of the panels get messed up what would you recommend as the best option for me 

 

currently I use TCS version 1.1(there is a V.3 out but using on zoom is a mess)

 

thanks in advance

Cheers for all the help Michael. I tried this and also messed around with some of the numbers as well but was unable to correct it so that the panels beneath would show properly, I imagine this is then a conflict with another panel. I'm sure I can live without it though as I'm quite stumped now! Many thanks again for the help.

Is there a reason why it was removed?

It was removed because it was an oversight that adding the files from a previous version re-enabled it, however for why the feature was fully removed from the game I have no idea. (there should be a couple of other threads in the other parts of the forum about the issue, but I don't know if a reason was given in any of them).

That's unfortunate. Still looking for answers for why it was fully removed from the game though. Thanks for the response.

really cant understand this thing!!

to Edit the Fonts

"The font settings are now controlled by the various files located inside the fonts folder. For the base skins I have included all the default font files to save you having to go look for them. To edit the fonts its just a case of changing the various variables declared in the xml files, whilst to change the actual font you copy the font you want to use to the font folder and then update the font names in the xml files to match your new font."

dunno which files should i change, where to find it...can you guys point me?

It depends on what you want to do have a look at this guide for more information: https://sites.google.com/site/michaeltmurrayuk/index-guides/fm2105-skinning-guide-part-1-the-basics/football-manager-2015-skinning-guide-part-2-changing-the-font-settings (the guide on the forum seems to have been deleted for some reason) - you can skip the bits about copying over the files as I have already done that bit for you with the base skin.

This is quite a quick easy one, but what graphic controls this menu? I am wanting to change the colour of it but not sure where the graphic is located. I have highlighted it with the red box in the pic below.

@Alexpuk2002 By Default it is controlled by the 'standard_button' variable declared in the settings file, however that also controls the colour of the various buttons.

If you only want to change the dropdown menu colours (don't think you can just change the FM menu dropdown on its own, or at least you cannot do easily) then you need to edit the 'box' xml file found in this location for your skin: \graphics\menus\standard (if it's not present you'll have to extract it from the skins.fmf file and it is found inside the fm-widgets skin, or you can just paste the below code into a new xml file and call it box and save it in the above location):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE propertylist SYSTEM "http://www.sigames.com/dtds/sios/properties.dtd">

<!-- image properties -->
<properties>

    <!-- image borders -->
    <!-- these determine how many pixels any content is inset from each side of the image -->
    <!-- (for example, in the case of a button, the content would be the text label) -->
    <record id="image_borders" left="10" right="10" top="4" bottom="7"/>

    <!-- image slices determine the points at which the image will be sliced to enable scaling -->
    <!-- the image will only slice in the directions slicing values are provided for-->
    <record id="image_slices" left="8" right="8" top="8" bottom="10"/>

    <colour id="red_replacement" name="standard_button"/>
    <colour id="green_replacement" name="standard_button_shadow"/>
    <colour id="blue_replacement" name="standard_button_border"/>
    
</properties>

And then just change the values I have highlighted to the colours you want - first one is for the main colour of the button, the second one you can leave, whilst the third one is for the border - you can either assign them to an existing colour name or you can create your own and then declare the RGB values in the settings file.

How have you replaced the fonts - did you just rename your new font to ProximaNova to replace the original font or did you edit the xml files in the fonts folder - if you replaced the font did you also replace the two bold fonts as well as it looks like that could be the generic font used when the game cannot find your font file, the bold fonts should be called ProximaNova-Sbold and ProximaNova-Bold. If you edited the xml files make sure you didn't accidentally remove or edit any of the text colour lines.
