FM16 Match Screen Kits Mod


My latest Match Screen Mod for Football Manager 2016 is another update from FM15 with this one changing the logos on the match screens into kits, and is available in two versions:

Mod 1 - Replaces all Match Screen Logos with Kits this affects Logos shown on the Split Screen Overview Panel and in the Header.

Mod 2 - Just replaces the Logos with Kits on the Split Screen Overview Panel but leaves the Logos in the Header.

You can also get the teamnames to appear on the titlebar (third screenshot below) by downloading Mod 1 of this mod and my Match Titlebar Team Name Mod.



Mod 1 should worth with any FM16 skin including Touch mode skins.

Mod 2 should also work with any FM16 full-mode skin, though if you are using a skin with a custom match titlebar you'll need to modify the files yourself.

If you are using a Touch Mode Skin then just download Mod 1 as the extra file in Mod 2 isn't used in FMT.

Note that these mods don't add kits/logos to the various Overview screens that don't display logos by default it just changes the existing logos to kits.

To apply to your game you just need to download the file for which Mod you want from below, extract the zip file and put the extracted files into the panels folder for the skin you are using, if you are using the Default Skin then download the Base Skin, add the file(s) to that skin and switch to the Base Skin in game. (If you have the skin cache on you may need to turn it off and reload your skin for the changes to show up).



After downloading the mods if you want to increase the kit sizes on the overview panels then have a read of this page:
How to Change Kit/Logo & Text Sizes on Overview View


How To Create The Mods

NOTE: These instructions are exactly the same as they were for FM15.
If you just want to download and use the mod download the mod from the above link, the below instructions are only for people who want to know what coding needs changing to create the mod, or are using an unsupported custom skin.

The files that needs to be modified are 'match team logo picture.xml' located in the panels folder extracted from the panels.fmf file and  'match title bar.xml' located in the panels folder of the skin you are using, if the file isn't present then you can extract the file from the panels folder of the fm skin located within the skins.fmf file. Copy the files into the panels folder for the skin you are using and then edit as below.


To Change the Logos to Kits on any Match Screen (Mod #01)

Open the 'match team logo picture.xml' and locate this line:

<widget class="picture" id="milp" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="centre"/>

And either delete it or comment it out (disables the code) so it looks like this:

<!-- <widget class="picture" id="milp" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" image_alignment="centre"/> -->

That's it the game will now display the kits instead of logos.


To Get the Logos Back onto the Titlebar (Mod #2).

After you have done the first mod to get the logos back on the Titlebar.
Open the 'match title bar.xml' file, then to get the Home Team Logo back locate this code:

  <!--home team logo-->
  <widget class="match_team_logo_picture" id="HtLG" team_index="0" width="40">
    <record id="object_property">
      <integer id="get_property" value="objt" />
      <integer id="set_property" value="objt" />
    </record>
  </widget>

And REPLACE it with this code:

  <!-- home team main logo -->
<widget class="picture" id="hmtF" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" height="40" width="40" image_alignment="left, centre_y">
<layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="vertical" offset="0"/>
<record id="object_property">
<integer id="get_property" value="htpc" />
<integer id="set_property" value="file" />
</record>
</widget>

To get the Away Team Logo back locate this code:

  <!--away team logo-->
    <widget class="match_team_logo_picture" id="AtLG" team_index="1" width="40">
    <record id="object_property">
      <integer id="get_property" value="objt" />
      <integer id="set_property" value="objt" />
    </record>
  </widget>

And REPLACE it with this code:

  <!-- away team main logo -->
<widget class="picture" id="awtF" scale_picture="true" keep_aspect_ratio="true" height="40" width="40" image_alignment="left, centre_y">
<layout class="centre_in_parent_attachment" alignment="vertical" offset="0"/>
<record id="object_property">
<integer id="get_property" value="atpc" />
<integer id="set_property" value="file" />
</record>
</widget>

And that is it you are done.
