FM16: Custom Screen Views

Default views in some screens doesn’t show enough information and it’s really great you’re able to edit view of most screens. I have put together some custom screen views which I use in Football Manager for several years. There are views on Squad Screen, Pre-match view or Player/Staff search view at Search and Scouting screen and more.

I don’t have a big screen resolution of ma laptop so these views are for 1600×900 resolution. They work great in Full mode and Windowed mode of Football Manager. There is one new resolution mode in Football Manager 2016 – it’s “Maximised Borderless Windowed”. With this you will play FM like in Full Screen mode but it’s easier to go to another opened programme like browser or desktop etc. My screen views works great with this as well.

I just only want to say that if you have bigger resolution you can add some more fields. If you have a smaller resolution you probably will not see all fields with this views. There is one very useful tool which can helps to you with column align. If click on any column by right-mouse button there will be menu in which you can Insert/Replace or Remove concrete column. But there is also Auto Size This and Auto Size All Columns. It’s useful if you do not want to specify the size of each separately.

Squad Screen View

Squad screen is very important to me and I want to have the most important columns at the first sight there. You will find there Position Selected, Player Status Information, Nationality, Name, Position (General), Morale, Overall Physical Condition, Age, Value, Contract Expiry Date, Wage, Assistant manager’s opinion of this player’s current/potential ability, Goals, Assists and Average rating.

You can add another field very quickly when you click on the “+” at the right end of the screen. But it depends on your screen resolution, there is possibility that added field will not show because there is no space. Download.

Opponent Squad Screen View

This view is intended to opponent squad screen. It’s similar as your squad screen but I use other information in concrete fields. There are basic fields like Position, Nationality, Age etc. But there are Apperances, Goals, Average Rating, International Caps & Goals as well. I also added to this screen Transfer Status so you can see at the first sight if some player is listed or not. There are Wage, Value and Contract Expiry Date.

You will there Morale and Scout recommendation. If you scouted some of players you will have Scout recommendation stright in this screen. Download.

Player Search Screen View

This screen I use when I am at all subpages of Scouting screen. You can see at the first sight Scout recommendation, Player Status Information, Name, Position, Club, Nationality, Heght, Weight, Age, Value, Contract Expiry Date, Wage, Personality, Squad Status, Transfer Status and Asking Price.

I use this view at all screens related to transfers or scouting. It’s very easy to see the most important information at the drop of the hat. Download.

Staff Search Screen View

This is equivalent of Player Search Screen View but there is some changes because saved Player Search Screen View is not available to use when you ar at the Staff Search Screen. I use view where are these fields – Name, Age, Nationality, Club, Club Job, Preferred Job, Full/Part Time, Contract Type, Wage, Contract Expiry Date, Coaching Qualifications, World Reputation and Preferred Formation. Download.

Pre-Match Screen View/Tactics Screen View

I use same view for these two screens. Because of my resolution there are not big amount of columns but I have the most important there. There are Position, Role and Duty Selected, Player Status Information, Player and info icon, Position, Assistant manager’s opinion of this player’s current ability, Suitability for role and duty, Overall Physical Condition/Match Sharpness, Morale, Goals, Assists and Average Rating.

In FM16 you can hide the pitch with players thanks to a button in the upper part of the pitch so you can add more fields and you will see them after you will hide the pitch. Download.

Schedule/Fixture Screen View

The last screen view is Schedule where you can watch your past matches or next opponents. There are fields Date, Time, Opposition, Competition, TV, Venue, Result Icon, Result, Goalscorers, Attendance and Weather. And that’s all. You can have there another fields like Stadium or Referee but I have not space for them due to a resolution. Download
