View Full Version : Ever played lower-leagues in Scotland?

I only ask as I've encountered a problem at the start of my second season.

I'm at the squad registration period right at the end of August, yet the button from the news page simply takes me through to the standard squad page. This wouldn't be an issue if there was a squad registration tab from there, but there's not.

I tried holidaying and the assistant manager leaves a few of my new signings out of the squad, so that doesn't work....any ideas?

It isn't something that I noticed during the start of my current career, I played nearly 6 seasons in Scotland starting in SD3 without any problems.

I know that is probably no help to you, sorry.

What version were you playing, Barside? I'm still on FM 11.0...wondering if it's worth patching...yet I hate the 11.3 patch. Far too many injuries, and the loan system is awful, too.

My save was started on 11.3, using an unpatched game is the most likely the cause.

If it was simply a patching issue, I'd expect to have been able to find a few posts about it. Nothing jumps out at me on the look-out, so I'm not sure...I'd like to avoid patching if I can, but we shall see.

If it was fixed on 11.1 then it would never have been noticed by us players, I've tried to find the 11.1 changelist but can't seem to locate it anywhere.

Not sure why you avoid patching, with a game as complex as FM there are always a myriad of bugs & glitches on the xx.0 version, patching this game is essential.

Generally I agree. On my old laptop I patched all the time, but it broke between 11.2 and 11.3. When I replaced it, the only patch available was 11.3, which personally I detest. As a result, I stuck to 11.0.

Well, I patched it and I've still got the same problem....brilliant. Looks like I'll have to play the month again and see what happens when the 31st comes around again.

Sometimes fixes for league rule errors are not fully save game compatible, IIRC such fixes only take effect when the season update happens.

Nah, I went back to an earlier save before the opening game of the season, holidayed a month up to the 31st August and it worked. Cheers anyway. I'll now go back and play that month again, and I'm pretty sure it'll be fine.
