    Hmm... odd. I'm signed in already with my Flickr account, and still get the error. Dunno what is the problem then.

    Ok, working now. Had to add SEGA Europe as a friend. Agree, a bit too much bother to view some screenshots.

    Yeah, you don't need to sign in to view them, they just need to be made viewable to public.

    Which they now are.

    If you right click the picture for the different sizes and click 'original' should give you the biggest picture.

    Like the squad depth screen, any chance the main squad screen could look like this. I particularly like the way the squad positions are split up into different sections.

    Question on squad depth - What is the bit about players not excluded from position? Does this mean we can choose to exclude certain players and it will show our best 3 not including him? I hope so, because it's annoying when you have a player who is good in many positions but you only play him in one, and want to know who is best other than him.

    Under "options" I'd guess.

    Load tactic is an option under "add tactic". Save tactic an option under "options" for each tactic.

    Question One
    About the attribute color screen

    a) Made come changes, close the game. Next time i run FM, will the changes remain?

    b) Will the changes only afect the skin i'n playing with, or will overight despite the skin i choose?


    Question Two
    In the team talk picture, i notice the "body language item. I think this is something like a immediate "response" from the players to your team/individual talk.

    a) If i talk to them, and i notice the react baddly, can i change my team talk? Or it will be "locked", and dont allow me to try and try again untill i see a good response from them? I ask this because in FM2011 we only knew the reaction to your team talk after the game... now, we will know it "in teal time".

    Are players now rated star wise out of 4? Looks like it in the screenshot of the squad with the seb brown attribute pop-up.

    EDIT: Although just realised a few sceenies later there are players showing 5 stars...

    I liked what is saw, but there is one thing i missed. That is if a player is left or right footed. You can't see it annymore or did i just overlooked it?

    Looks very nice. However, I've noted a few strange things:

    Screenshot 1 (tactics screen): Why are the players outside of the match squad not listed in order of position (e.g. GK DR DL DC DMC etc.)?? Actually, I have found this to occur also om my FM2011 game and for me this is a massive annoyance and I also cannot remember this was the case for earlier FM versions. I hope this will be fixed for the full game.

    Screenshot X (transfer centre 3): Why are these French clubs listed as npower Championship??? This surely is a bug???

    Surely this would be a bad addition to the game as the whole point of management is to learn how your players react to different situations. IRL you wouldnt have a manager say "Hold on a minute i didnt mean that, what i meant to say was this..." over and over again until ALL his players were happy. Its gotta keep you guessing to test your skill and abilty to manage said team/players.

    You can actually fix it on FM11. You just need to play around with it.

    Presumably you can't change it once you've said something.

    I find it hard to believe, but actually this advice has solved my problem! If you hold shift you can select more than one sorting critera. I never realised this, stupid me...
    I should have asked this earlier, because this annoyed me every time when I was making my line-up.
    Apologies to SI for naming this a 'bug'!

    Gotta say I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far for next years game, looking at the minute like this version will surpass past versions.

    Roll on October 21st!!!

    Whatever do you mean? League 1 (and Championship and League 2) have been in our games for a good few years now with the correct names and team badges?

    As Miles said, there will be more information on the team talks coming up. But you should be able to get a preview of the logic from those screenshots

    On the Transfer Centre 3 picture. Why is npower Championship listed under all the French clubs? I never really look at the Transfer Centre in previous games so maybe I am being thick and don't get how it works, but it makes it look like those clubs are in the npower Championship.

    Overall it is looking good, and now I ahve a new 1920x1080 monitor I can take advantage of the extra horizontal space over my old 1280x1024 res. Probably take a lot of getting used though.

    On the "Team Report - Dark" screenshot showing the squad depth, 1st team, 2nd team and third team, you can see tick boxes on the right of the screen. What are these for?

    I could have sworn that the normal release doesn't have npower, or the npower logo in it?

    New GUI looks awesome. One of the best features so far in my opinion. The tactics/picking-the-squad screen looks much much better, the little floating windows with the player attributes is a great idea, likewise for the dynamic player search without having to open a new window for the filters. Even the dark skin looks great.

    The only thing I disliked from the screenies were the team talks which seemed slightly over-complicated, I'm not a huge fan of this whole tone system and the dividing of talks between defenders/midfielders/attackers. I also thought the news item of the key players for the season was a bit daft and an unnecessary extra click, but it's not a huge deal.

    The 'I' button on the squad and tactics screen is genius!

    I must admit to being slightly skeptical about the GUI Blogs as I thought that a few interface modifications would mean nothing to me as I was more interested in the content of the game but this has caught my attention.

    It looks very slick and the additions to the interface look to have made an actual impact on how I would play my game.

    Very Impressed

    New interface looking great

    I did notice on the second screen shot that none of the scorelines are next to fixtures so we can't see the results of any of the games - Are they just filtered out in this screen ?

    Considering results are still there on this screenshot, I'd say it just means we can customize the columns on that screen.

    Yup, they were in last year. And the Coca-Cola ones for a few years before that.

    Wonder when the match engine will get a mention? All bells and whistles so far.

    First time I have mentioned it Slight exaggeration there. GUI looks nice though.

    I love the fact that you can actually change the skin of different things now rather than downloading different skins. Love how you can alter the looks of the different areas.

    Love how a lot of it all has been condensed into the same view as well. Like in the tactics screen where the Match Preparation is now and that you can click on the "i" next to the players name to see their attributes - all this rather than going into the different other screens like how it is now.

    Loving the way it's all looking so far
