The main features of this Football Manager 2018 custom skin are edited Player Overview, Player Attributes and Player Comparison – all of these screens are compatible with DF11 Facepack and we were really happy to use their panels to make our FM18 saves better and more enjoyable.

The Staff Overview is also different from the default one for AI managers, coaches etc. but also for your human manager.

We also edited the Club Overview to be able to see some important details of your club at the first sight.

We also increased the size of Dynamics Hierarchy Overview and we also increased the size of pitch in news inbox when you receive the mail with a “Team of the week/month” etc.

Match In-Between Highlights + Match Review Screen Mods. You can adjust the width of the containers in the game which allows you to more easily customise.

Same as with Match In-Between Highlights huge thanks to Michael Murray for his work with this beautiful Football Manager 2018 mod. You can see a lot of important information thanks to it during the half-time, full-time and if you open the previous match on your fixture screen.

Probably one of the most useful things of this skin is edited “Tutoring” page as we added the value of Determination attribute and also Player traits so it’s very easy to see important things.

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 2018\skins\Ronnie Dog Skin FM18\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″>
<record id=”object_property”>
<integer id=”get_property” value=”mnpc” />

Same as with other changes just reload the skin.

Background picture

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 2018\skins\Ronnie Dog Skin FM18\graphics\backgrounds” and name your picture default.

Then just go back to game, clear cache in preferences and reload skin. You can see there is a picture with or without Ronnie logo and there is also darker default picture with the stadium. You can always add your own picture as we wrote earlier.


Special thanks go to Michael Murray who is the author of the Match In Between Highlights + Halftime/Match Review Screen Mods.

Also thanks to „D_LO_“ for his help with start screen and for permission to use his Last starting XI“ panel on the Club Overview screen.

And the last thank you is for DF11 and their panels who are used in the Player Overview, Player Attributes and Player Comparison screens. Credits go to Pikawa for creating DF11 panels for FM18.

And the many users who gave me a feedback in recent weeks and months.

This skin is mainly for 1920×1080 resolution but if you have 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 small resolution.
