Football Manager 2019 - Skinning, Modding and Graphics Knowledge Base

Welcome to the latest version of the Skinning, Modding & Graphics Knowledge Base.

This thread should over time contain links to the most important and useful threads in this subforum, however what I have also been doing over the last few years is tagging any interesting or informative threads with a skinning tag, so whilst I try and build up the content in this thread if you cannot see the answer to your question here or you are just starting out skinning then have a browse through the forum and open up any of the threads with a skinning tag which should give you some useful if random bits of skinning knowledge.

Like in the past this thread will be split into several parts;

How To Create Football Manager Graphics Guides

Football Manager 2019 Skinning Guides

Football Manager Skinning Guide

The following guides will talk you through the basics of creating a skin, and whilst they were written for previous versions, the basic information still applies and should be enough to get you started.

Also note that whilst Football Manager Touch is now a separate game the information applies to both that and the Full Mode Version (though only to the Steam versions), you just need to remember if you are using the Touch Mode to make sure you are editing the Touch files and putting them where the Touch Mode is looking, also some of the file locations may have changed so you might need to go looking for some of them.

Football Manager 2019 Skinning Resources/Mods for Skinners

The following links provide instructions on how to modify certain screens, these links are primarily for skin makers as applying the mods requires you to edit the files, though end-users can still use them you'll just have to create the finished files from the instructions yourself rather than having a ready to use file to download.

I've also linked to some Guides from previous versions as the basic information in those guides should still apply, though you won't be able to just download the linked files for FM2019 as some of the coding will have changed as will some of the file locations but they should be enough to get you started.

Football Manager 2019 Skinning Mods for End-users and Skinners.

The following links provide mods for end-users, these are files that just need downloading and putting in the correct location with next to no editing of files needed by the end-user. If you are creating a skin then you can still include the mods with your skin if you get the permission of the mod creator.

Links to Useful Threads from Previous Versions

Below are links to threads that contain useful information from previous versions of FM, again you may need to modify some of the information in the older threads but the information in them should give you a starting place, though I haven't had chance to check them for FM19 so some of the information may no longer apply.
