[FM20][SKIN] Base Skin with Backgrounds Support

Recommended Posts

FM20 Base Skin with Background Support

Following on from the discussion in this thread

Figured it was popular enough for its own thread. The following skin adds support for custom backgrounds on Football Manager 2020.

If you release a skin using this mod, you must credit @bluestillidie00 for the base skin.

How it was made

This is more for the skin creators, but if you'd like to make the mod for yourself


You'll need client object browser.xml from the Resource Archiver, then head underneath the initial background widget.

We've used very similar code to last year, most notably

<widget class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/custom/background/paper"/>

However we're going to need to use certain attributes with this code otherwise we get the following bugs

So the first thing we need to do is convert the initial widget into a multiline container, we do this by removing the / from the closing argument, then adding </widget> underneath the line, so your code should look like this.

<widget class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/custom/background/paper">
</widget>

Next thing we need to do is scroll up to the background code, and we're gonna need the following code

<attachment class="test_multiple_globals_attachment" default_value="false">
    <list id="get_properties">
        <record get_property="MatS" test_mode="equal" value="true" skip_if_null="true" />
        <!-- PROP_FULL_SCREEN_3D_BEING_DRAWN -->
        <record get_property="Ma3D" test_mode="equal" value="true" comparison_mode="or" skip_if_null="true" />
    </list>
    <integer id="set_property" value="hidn" />
</attachment>

Paste that inside the widget we just made, and you should have the following

<widget class="bordered_box" appearance="boxes/custom/background/paper">
    <attachment class="test_multiple_globals_attachment" default_value="false">
        <list id="get_properties">
            <record get_property="MatS" test_mode="equal" value="true" skip_if_null="true" />
            <!-- PROP_FULL_SCREEN_3D_BEING_DRAWN -->
            <record get_property="Ma3D" test_mode="equal" value="true" comparison_mode="or" skip_if_null="true" />
        </list>
        <integer id="set_property" value="hidn" />
    </attachment>
</widget>

Save your file, go into the preferences and clear the cache, reload your skin and you'll be done!

@bluestillidie00 I can't thank you enough for this, you make it sound so simple in your opening post but I was obviously doing/missing something when editing the file(s), along with many others too.

I'll give this a go when I get home tonight, thanks again!

This is brilliant thanks a lot.

Out of interest, how easy is it to add instant result to this? I think that Instant Result also has something to do with client object browser?

Just copy and paste the code as directed into the client object browser.xml of the skin you’ve been using that already has the instant result feature.

That was my initial idea, but when I was looking at the code, I couldn't even find the code that was written at the top of this thread.

This is great like the default dark base skin, my favorite skinner. As a complete amateur in coding how would I attempt to change the background opacity so that it is somewhere between this skin and the default base skin? One is just a tad bit too dark for me and the other a tad bit too clear lol

I always feel like such a moron with stuff but can't get this to work.  I've installed the skin, reloaded with cache unticked but I'm still only getting the default background in the pack rather than the skin changing to different backgrounds with the teams.  The backgrounds megapack I downloaded is in the Graphics folder - am I missing something?  Sorry if it's obvious!

I absolutely love this patch!!!!! It remind me of FM old versions.Thanks a lot!!!!!

Just one question. Is there a way to make the inbox news more transparent??? 

Inbox screen is the only screen that prevents you to see the background

Thanks!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to add an instant result button to this skin ?  I have the Wannachup fm20 skin.  Is it possible to take some files from that and use with this skin ?

Yeah, take all the files from instant result panels folder, and and the instant result code from the client_object_browser into the same line part of this one.

Where can i find the paper/overlay file? And what do i do in there? I edited this for fm19, but i cant seem to find out of it now..... I have downloaded the base skins and want to have backgrounds less transparent, so i can see the white text in the skin....

My documents/sports interative/Skins/YOURSKIN/graphics/backgrounds

open the overlay file (the square colour) in photoshop/paint etc and adjust the transparency/opacity

Alternatively you’ll have a paper.png in graphics/boxes. Same applies.

If you’re struggling to change the opacity level with photoshop etc then Michael has included various levels of transparency in his background support mod. Just follow his instructions with using the numbered files he has made for us in the boxes folder from this download:
