After the Tempo and Ronnie Dog Skin in FM17 and FM18, it’s not a skin with some specific name of some website like in the past.
But the main idea of the skin is still the same – just make simple adjustments to make the game better.
Some things are the same as in FM18, some other things were improved and edited, some things are better or they were removed completely.
The skin was made in the default purple and also in the dark version.
Instant result button included (before you will ask).
This skin was made mainly for my own use, I’m happy with this version and I will update it only if something will not work.
Same as in FM18 I decided to use DF11 panels. My first thought was to use the same as in FM18 but after some chat with FMSamo I decided to use the new panels but…
…the original files from DF11 were good but they needed some tweaks. I had to edit the code to make ‘player personal details panel’ (over the attributes) with bordered box. I also moved the bottom three widgets including seasonal stats up under the attributes same as I had it in the previous skin.
All the boxes were made ‘bordered’, there is a pitch picture in the Positions panel and I included the PRO/CON panel so you can use it next to attributes where is drop-down. Same as all the rest of the widgets are available to change thanks to the included selector. Just click to the arrow and select your own widgets.
In the end, I edited the player overview even more because I wasn’t satisfied how it looked.
There are two ways how to show player overview. You can see there is a small arrow over the picture. That’s because there is a mode for the player picture with the kit…
…and Cut-Out player picture with the signature and kit.
…I also decided to include the player profile with FM18 DF11 Panels. You can change the skin to “Rensie FM19 Skin Old DF11” and it will be like this…
There is also edited Player Attributes screen and Comparison screen, same as last year.
More player profiles…
More player attributes screens…
Background Support Mod + Inbox adjustment
The Background Support Mod created by Michael Murray was activated and I also added the coloured ‘ticks’ in the mailbox list and increased the size of inbox header so the pictures of staff are bigger.
Scouting recommendation/card bigger picture
Another small thing was added as I increased the size of the player picture in the scouting recommendation card when you are in the Scouting Centre or in your mailbox.
Staff Overview + Human manager
Same non-player profiles as in FM18, I only adjusted some small things you would probably don’t even notice…
Just a quick change – the width of the right panel was resized to a more logical size…
Inbox item – Team of the week/month
Same as in previous skins I added this panel to increase the size of pitch picture in the inbox when you receive the message with the info about Team of the week/month.
Some leagues, for example in the Czech Republic, there are also substitutes for Team of the week. If you will leave this panel as I set it up there is a possibility the line with substitutes will not be able to see.
You can adjust it yourself. Just go to skin folder/panels/news_item_panels and open “inbox content with pitch panel”. Then find the rounded line and change the value and save it. And reload skin…
Match Screen Mods
You can adjust the width of the containers in the game which allows you to more easily customise. You can edit it like you want, just drag the line and move it up/down/left/right.
You can find more info HERE.
Add Manager Picture
Do you want your own manager picture? You can thank to Michael Murray’s mode but be aware of …
- You cannot assign a picture to an existing manager, if you want an existing manager to have a picture you would need to retire that manager and create a new one to take over but you won’t be able to keep any of your in-game progress.
- It isn’t possible to change the image after the profile has been created to make sure you are happy with the image before you get too far into your game. Whilst you can now edit your manager in a game this feature doesn’t allow you to change the profile picture nor will edit the face here override the set picture.
Caps Font removed & Added a logo to the background
If you want back the Caps Font just go to the „C:\Users\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\skins\Rensie FM19 Dark skin\fonts“, open file called „title“ and insert this <string id=”capitalisation” value=”upper case” /> between the paragraphs.
If you want to get rid of the background logo in the middle, go to the skin folder/panels/client_object – open the file “client_object_browser.xml” and delete this section and save file…
<!– Logo –>
<widget class=”picture” id=”mnpV” image_alignment=”centre” scale_picture=”false” transparency=”0.6″>
<integer id=”get_property” value=”mnpc” />
Same as with other changes just reload the skin.
If you would like to use your own background picture instead of the default one just go to select your own picture and paste it to this folder “C:\Users\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\skins\Rensie FM19 Dark Skin\graphics\backgrounds” and name your own picture default.
Then just go back to game, clear cache in preferences and reload skin.
You can also use all available background packs.

This skin is mainly for 1920×1080 resolution but if you have a smaller resolution and you want to use this skin I recommend you to change it to “85% Zoom” in the Preferences.
I used it like this many previous years when I had a laptop with a small resolution. There is also “50% Zoom” option in FM19.
* Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won’t be supported by them.
Don’t forget you can join the Football Manager Slack to get in touch with many other FM players. You can talk about everything, mostly not even about FM but you have to see it…
You can join FMSlack via THIS link.
If you would like to find and check all the Football Manager related content I would recommend you to join Tea&Busquets where you can follow almost all FM players/creators.
Until next time…take care.
