[FM17][SKIN] VITREX17 v2.0 (updated 1.1.2017)

Recommended Posts

Regarding the locator maps, how much of an effort would it take to make those represent a more correct location of the club? As of now, it "only" shows the country (specifically, the location of the country's capital, if I'm correct), but, especially for larger countries, it doesn't indicate where the club's located (i.e. L.A. Galaxy and D.C. United in the MLS would have the same "location", but are more than 2,500 miles apart..

Is it possible to pinpoint the city, or would that require way too much work?

Good skin, btw. :thup: 

It's a very big tast to take on, for a relatively small pleassure. I know Emil used like 3 weeks straight, to create the Debski's World of Hairstyles pack for Regens in 2014, which can be compared in the sense of amounts of pictures needed to be made. You can say these were worth it, as they play a major role in the visuals of long term saves - a city pic locator is something you maybe fall upon a couple of time each time you play the game, at most. Another thing is that if you didn't make a pic for each and every city/town in the game, you would not really have a way to create a fallback method, of a "neutral" city pic - as all cities without a specific picture assigned, would use this one, regardless of being in Beirut or Medellin. It could be done, just not worth the work, for such a small detail.

Hi,

Great skin!

I've downloaded the mini stadium and cities pack but they don't appear to be showing. I've reloaded the skin and cleared the cache but still no luck.

Any ideas?

Hi,

How do you find the ID for city/town? as I want to add a picture to the 'Vitrex city pics'

I've tried using the pre game editor to get the ID of the cities but they're completely different to the ones in the picture pack.

Thanks for anyone that can help.

Yeah, I get that it would be a big job, was just wondering.
I certainly hope that SI could get a map in the game by default some time, as that wouldn't require the task of assigning a pic to each city/town/location, as they'd already have their coordinates set in the db, and the map would just use those coordinates for referencing. But probably not for another couple of versions, I'd guess.

I've installed this because my skin of choice was causing too much lag. Not only does Vitrex solve that problem, but I'm immediately hooked. It truly is a lovely skin.

I reckon I'll stick with it as my default skin, but one thing I do miss is the ability to change backgrounds. I have my own set of lower-league 'stadia' (fields, really) that I've been using.

Also can you fix this for people using the metallic flags please? (Kit behind the flag)

Hes answered this one on his fb group.

 

This can be changed in the 'nation overview.xml' file found in Vitrex/panels/nation.

The lines affecting it are from 30-58:


<!--Kits and flag row-->
<container default_height="170" minimum_height="-1" priority="3">
<layout class="arrange_horizontal_attachment" layout="-1, -1, -1" offset="0" gap="0" />
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="vertical" inset="0" layout_children="true" />

<widget class="kit_picture" id="T_hk" kit_id="0" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="left">
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="left" inset="80" />
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="15" />
<boolean id="aull" value="true"/> <!-- needed for fantasty draft create club changes -->
<record id="object_property">
<integer id="get_property" value="Tftm" />
<integer id="set_property" value="Ttea" />
</record>
</widget>

<container>
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" layout_children="true" />
<!--flag-->
<widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true">
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="10" />

<boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true" />
<flags id="image_alignment" value="top" />
<record id="object_property">
<integer id="get_property" value="mnpc" />
</record>
</widget>

</container>

 

or 

 

If you dont know much about skinning, you can have an easy fix, by decreasing the size of the flag this way. Change the inset value (now 10) to something higher like 20. This will make the flag smaller and appear in between the kits:

<container>

<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="0" layout_children="true" />
<!--flag-->
<widget class="picture" id="pict" scale_picture="true">
<layout class="stick_to_sides_attachment" alignment="all" inset="10" />

<boolean id="keep_aspect_ratio" value="true" />
<flags id="image_alignment" value="top" />
<record id="object_property">
<integer id="get_property" value="mnpc" />
</record>
</widget>

</container>

You can turn on ID's within the games menu under PREFERENCES -> INTERFACE. Then the number will appear in the titlebar under the country/team/player/tournament name.

It must be because some of your other graphics are interfering. Or their config.xml files to be exact. Especially if you are using metallic logos - or other graphical addons utilizing the "background logo left/right" widget - this is the one that normaly show a club/nation logo in the background, faded, in the header/titlebar of the game. Vitrex's citypack is utilizing this function, as the left/right background logos are unnecessary in the skin, so if you are having graphical stuff with config.xml files that ask the game to use their graphics as background logo left/right, it interfers with the city pack.

There are two ways to fix it:

1. Delete all the graphics (or simply deactivate their config files by renaming them) that are associated with the widget - like i said, i know metallic logos have them, in seperate subfolders under the name left/right.

2. Move the city pics directly into the Vitrex skin folder under 'Vitrex/graphics/pictures/' - the game will then prioritize them over whatever files you have in your normal graphics folder under 'Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics'.

Not sure if it's skin related, or default for the game, but on the tactics screen, where are the shirt names taken from? I just noticed (after installing this skin) that it says "Sanchez" (not "Alexis"), "Cazorla" (not "S.Cazorla") and "Mesut Özil" (not "Özil"), instead of drawing the correct shirt names (which are in the db).
If it's skin related, could this be fixed?

You can change it in the game settings. Preferences -> Interface -> Tick off 'Use players' shirt name on tactics pitch'

Hi Dimitri,

 

Thanks for the reply. I see now, the ID used for the city pics is the same ID as the club and isn't linked to the ID of the actual city/town.

I think he means the background selector option and maybe unaware of the problems it causes with crashes on FM17.  The only skin which has been reasonably stable with it was flut's beta version but even then it would still cause crashes. 

Yes, I mean that. In the graphics/backgrounds folder you just have a default picture whereas in the other skin I've been using I have a folder with 11 images and a config file that I can change via a GUI button. I never had any issues with crashes. That skin is Andromeda, by the way.

Which version of Andromeda are you using? Every skin I've seen has dropped it for FM17.  I have version E of Andromeda for FM17 installed and I can't see the background selector option and I've also seen theBantams commenting on why he dropped it but I'm happy to be proven wrong...

Ah, good point. I had been using the first version of Andromeda Black. Okay, if you're saying no skinner can get the backgrounds to work properly, I'll live with that and stick with Vitrex. Cheers.

@Dynasty Hi Dynasty. Thanks!

We have already changed that for the next update. You can't really at the moment, as the flag function is being used for the world map locator, which would just show you that one twice (as it already is shown once on the overview) - like i said, it has been changed for the 1.4 version, so it utilizes another widget, thereby freeing the flag function:

Anyone else having an issue with their drop down menus and buttons being a rather aggressive red colour?

Doesn't seem to be like this on the screenshots, so I assume it's an error of some kind...

Yeah, I think I'll give that a miss and keep my fingers crossed that it gets updated - love the skin itself, just spoiled by that ugly red.

You could also just delete all x2 graphics in the skin folder - this should force the game to use the normal ones as far as i am aware.

Would there be way of replacing the nation logo/flag on the club overview from Nation to Based Nation? I think it would be better to have the likes of Swansea and Toronto to have the Wales and Canada flag instead.

This is just amazing.  Quite a simple question and apologies if it sounds direct. How long are we talking before something could be released for laptops?  I have to play with zoom and a lot of the amazing stuff just doesn't show correctly for obvious reasons.

Might be quicker to have a quick learn and play yourself, means each FM you can get dug in quicker if you know how to do it,  It how i started, now i pretty much make my own

This happens for an unknown reason some times. Change skin, clear cache, close game, start it up again, change back to vitrex and it should be ok.
