Scorpio 2.1 Ultra Dark Skin for Football Manager 2013

The Football Manager dark skin Scorpio 2.1 is my favorite skin and is one of the best skins I've ever used for Football Manager. The Scorpio skin comes with 6 different backgrounds to choose from. You can even download and import other backgrounds if you have a personal favorite. You can set the opacity for the skin, which influences the darkness. The opacity levels range from 20% to 80%, which is ultra dark. This mean that you will get a dark look for all your non-match panels.

The start screen can be customized for your preferences with easy to change background images and manager images added. You can choose between five different colours in the background images; blue is default as you can see from the image above.

With the new version of the Scorpio dark skin, there where some cool changes to the player profile. While I like to use the Player Attribute report, which gives you detailed overview of player attributes in additional to height and weight, preferred foot, value, wages and contract length. The new player attribute tab contains also a section of his best player role and positional abilities. The new player profile is now much cleaner and much more easy to grasp. You have much more opportunities to find all relative information about the player. Not only can you see his personality description and media handling type in the player profile, but notice the different tabs above the player attributes. The different tabs has all relevant information such as happiness, training, coach report, bans and biography. This makes it easier to pick the best player option for your next encounter.

The player attributes are highlighted in red for the best ones, but this can be altered quickly. If you do not know how to this, please read our guide on how to edit skin colours.

Apart for the revamp of the player profile for the players, there is also some changes to the news inbox. Now you will see manager profile image and club logo above the news section.

For those of you who loves to create your own tactic, or needs to adjust the different sliders to the team and player instructions, the ultra dark scorpio skin comes with an opportunity to target the changes. Personally I love the enhanced sliders with numerical numbers. This makes it easy to see and adjust when creating new Football Manager Tactics.

When in game you can enjoy Dazs8 great work by looking at the new scoreboard which is included. Here is an example of the scoreboard in the full match screen selection.
