Football Manager 2017 Match Screen Kits Mod


My latest Match Screen Mod for Football Manager 2017 is another update from last year with this one changing the logos on the match screens into kits, however unlike previous years there is only one version for each mode this year as adding the kits to the header doesn't work correctly this year, though you can still combine it with my Match Titlebar Team Names Mod for full mode skins:

Mod One - This version is for Full Mode Skins and replaces the Logos with Kits on the Split Screen Overview Panel but leaves the Logos in the Header, as shown in the first screenshot below.

Mod Two - This version is for Touch Mode Skins and just replaces the logos on the match screens with kits, and as Touch mode doesn' have a header it doesn't need the other file to add the logos back to the header. (Second Screenshot below)

Mod Three - You can also create a third version of the mod for Full Mode Skins that adds the Team Names back onto the Titlebar (Third Screenshot below) - To do this you need to download the Second Mod (Yes the Touch Version) aswell as the version of my Match Titlebar Team Names Mod that you want.



Mod One will ONLY work with Full Mode Skins. If you are using a custom skin that has changed the Match Titlebar then you are best downloading Mod Two and then following the advanced instructions further down to add the logos back to the header if need be.

Mod Two will work with all skins including custom skins, Full Mode skins and Touch Mode skins2 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.

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, if you want kits on the overview screen then that is a whole different guide.

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 match folder 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 Mod

NOTE: These instructions are exactly the same as they were for FM16.
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\match folder extracted from the panels.fmf file and 'match title bar.xml' located in the panels\match 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.


1. To Change the Logos to Kits.

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.

If you are using a Touch Mode Skin then that is it you are done.

If you are using a Full Mode Skin then there is an extra step you need to follow as the kits don't show correctly in the header so you can either add the team names back to the titlebar by using my Match Titlebar Team Names Mod or you can follow the below instructions to add the logos back to the titlebar so it looks like the default skins.


2.To Get the Logos Back onto 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.
