FM2015 Match Screen Kits Mod

My latest Match Screen Mod for Football Manager 2015 is another simple change that changes the logos on the match screens into kits, there are currently two versions:

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

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

Also if you want you can combine the first version with the Match Titlebar Team Name Mod to also have the team names showing in the Titlebar.

  

The files should work with any FM2015 skin, though for the second mod if the skin you are using has a different match titlebar from the default you'll need to modify the files yourself.

The First mod will also work fine for the FMC mode (first one won't as there is no header in FMC Mode).

Note that this mod doesn'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 version you want from below, extract the zip file and put the extraacted 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).

Change Log:

v2 Uploaded 13th December 2014 12:26

- Version 1 - No update needed for the patch.

- Version 2 - Minor update to bring the files up-to-date with patch 15.2, there has been no changes to the coding needed to display the names, files have just been updated to better support re-colouring of the match titlebar if added to a custom skin that recolours the titlebar.





How To Create The Mod

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).

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.
