    Can you please raise this in the UI bugs subforum (http://community.sigames.com/forumdi...er-Interface)?

    In preferences, where you can select the location of a user data folder - is this an alternative to using 'Sports Interactive / Football Mananger / Graphics' for a place to dump logos, faces etc?

    Have done, in "other issues". I did access the "ass man Loans" button in the same save game yesterday with the same staffing. Is there another way to access this other than the manager/profile/ass man button route.

    I have this problem too. Fine on full screen although the writing is so small i cant read it. My system is set to 1920 * 1080

    On windowed - on team instructions some options are 'cut off' under the specific instructions box and I have to switch to full screen to set these and then go back to windowed once done - very annoying, just needs a scroll option.

    I'm like the other way around, I cant lose a game. A bit comes down to team talks and touchline shouts

    I don't think there is, no. You would have access to it on any panel inside your Human Manager screen i.e. not only on the Home panel, but any other panel when you're on your own screen.

    To answer my own question, probably not. So to move on - in the full release, if the game is purchased via Steam do I get to choose where I can save the game? I dislike the fact that the Sports Interactive folder is dumped into the c:drive. When face packs and the like are added, C drive shrinks and would prefer to use another drive with masses of space.

    Anyone confirm?

    The interfaces all seem a bit too packed too me but that could just be me and can obviously be changed with skins, liking it so far.

    Just one thing, because everyone is going mad in Portugal...

    The SI don't have licenses for the PT League right? So, that will make it seams like the english Premiership?

    I bought Tevez for Arsenal, then come september for premier league registration I hit auto select and he was omitted......so now he is unhappy and wants to leave. Auto select should not have omitted such a player! now i cant play him until the new year. blah

    Also, how can i get the game to go directly to the squad screen when i click on a club link rather than the club profile page ?

    might be worth reporting that as a bug in the bugs forum.

    Preferences - default team section. Can change the player one there too if you like. Tevez not being selected - probably got some kind of hardcoded auto select for each team for first season or summat. Bear in mind I'm giving that as a reason not an excuse. It is poor that Tevez isn't auto selected.

    When viewing a player attributes screen, none of the info such as value, wage, contract expiry date etc show up.

    What resolution is your monitor set to? If you go to full screen mode, or hide the task bar at the bottom, do these details then show up?

    I have the same issue, when you go into attributes section none of that information shows up, but it shows up in the profile section. I play on a pretty big monitor so it's not the layout, seems to just not show up for attribute.

    The "profile" tab everything shows up. But doesn't on the attribute section. It's no game breaker but just thought I'd point it out

    I guess so. I don't think mine last years was 'close to the edge' it ran quite well. I personally took off the crowd because the ME was smoother that way for me so maybe this year I'll have to take off the weather effects or something. I'd be amazed if 3D doesn't work. I could just try the demo but I love waiting for the full game really.

    We think we may have a rough idea on what might be causing this to occur, and are currently investigating the matter further.

    Mine its the same. Loads of info on various screens clipped on windowed mode. 1920 x 1080 resolution. Fine on full screen. Windowed mode clearly broken.

    I wouldn't say it's broken, but there's definitely an issue with it, when i played in windowed mode it was all jerky in 3D on low settings/backgrounds/stadiums off, i've just swithced to full screen and put everything to high, and low and behold, it's smooth as out.

    I am receiving the following error message, Rule_Group_Manager::load()- cannot find rule group. It happens when I try and load the quick start. Any help would be appreciated.

    For me it is a little too crammed with info. One of the things I love about the game is the depth of detail and stats, but I always felt like it was arranged in a way that meant you didn't get overloaded on a single page. At the moment with the skins in the game I think there is too much data on a single page.

    I'm loving the transfer filtering that works live without having to re-search, although I'm a bit disappointed with the tiny budget Liverpool start with

    I don't know if this is the appropriate place to raise this, but I have noticed that if I go to make subs during a game, the players condition remains at what it was the last time I looked at the screen (so for example at 60 mins it is the same as at 45), and it only updates to what it actually is at 60 mins after I've made a substitution. It's not a big thing as I can make a sub and then undo it to see what players condition is, but it's a little irritating.

    I am playing on an ancient computer (this weekend) so I don't know if this is a relevant issue, but when I press the windows button to go read on here for instance FM is blacked-out when I return. Moving the mouse about clears away the blacked-out areas so I suppose it is just a graphical refresh-thing.

    Nice, after spending hundreds of € from the first CM to FM 2011, I now am officially "c.ock-blocked" from playing Football Manager due to Steam and the country I live in. Mind, I'm using Steam for many other games, so no problem with that in principle.

    That's a bit of a shock, but after FML-gate, I'm not actually surprised how much SI cares about customer minorities.

    edit: That applies to playing the Demo too, of course.

    Loving the game so far but have an issue with scouting (might just be me but not going through near 1500 posts just to check ;)). I sent my scout out to look at england and he finished his report in 1 day with just one recommended player. I restarted his search and again he finished the next day with the same player. This went on till I got fed up and sent on UK & Ireland on roaming, and in the 3 months he's found no one. Now I am managing Chelmsford and my scout isn't exactly a world beater (3 for JPA and JCA) but this seems a bit extreme! Just checking to see if anyone else has this problem.

    I think that this is a very good game.

    Positives:
    New font
    New overview screens
    3D + stadium improvements
    Dyanmic searching
    Tone system and team meetings
    and much more

    Negatives:
    Press conferences are still stupidly repetitive
    Tactics screen, although combining a lot of stuff together, is a complete mess graphically.

    2 questions:
    Why is the view squad tab the other side of the team overview tab, would make it a lot easier if it was sandwiched between the overview and staff tab.
    What is the minimum resolution to allow 9 panels on the overview screens?

    In split view for a match I can't seem to set the Ass Man's feedback as the right spilt view in the option screen. Is this intentional left out in the options screen? It is annoying having to set it at the start of every match.

    I have just tried for half an hour the demo. I have been playing FM series since years and , to me , FM12 seems a gorgeous release with many improvements.

    I just hope a the first patch will come early.

    Great job SI, great job indeed.

    mutiple instructions means he has done suggestions for multiple areas, you just need to select the individual player to see what he has done

    player instructions affect the player, including if he changes position. So if you have asked Rooney to be tight marked at FC, and the oppo move him to AMC he will still be tight marked.

    position instructions apply to that position, whether the original player is there or has been subbed off and replaced by a new player

    FM has always done this - it used to just change your age when you confirmed.

    Just to make the game a bit more realistic, as it does not happen very often that a 18 year old is managing a professional club.

    I've had a good long session on the demo this afternoon so some second thoughts.

    * I have a fairly large monitor, 1920x1080 IIRC, and the adaptive layout seems to be working well for me, giving me lots of info on the home screen and so on. The layout as a whole seems more intuitive and it feels like I'm getting where I want to be with fewer clicks

    * Contract negotiations seem more nuanced: it's easier to get someone to accept a lower basic by giving them more bonuses. Better and truer to life.

    * Team talks are much improved. I love being able to tell a player assertively they need to improve in the second half (essential if you have Benoit Assou-Ekkoto in your team) or after a scrappy win to calmly tell a couple of players they weren't up to scratch. Can we have this extended to Press conferences next year, please?

    * The match viewer looks much better: it runs more smoothly on my machine than FM11 and looks much better, which I attribute mainly to the better grass. Not recreational cigarettes I've been smoking but having the pitch rendered better, which improves the look of the match.

    Overall it seems slicker, smoother, more polished and simply better all round than last year's. And I haven't found a bug yet.

    Questionable customer service. Trumpted the Adaptive Layout, but you have to effectively reprogramme the game to change the font size?

    Where can I find the 'Terminate Loan' button? I can't seem to find it.. If it helps, I paid 230k for the loan. I've heard that you can't terminate a paid loan, but I don't know.

    Anyways great game SI! I still haven't turned it off since downloading it on its release. I can't wait till the 21st!

    I accepted a loan for one of my players but it fell through as the team who were going to sign him pulled out after securing their preferred loan targets, another nice feature in the game. Man City have been trying to sign Jack Robinson but I rejected and they signed some other teenagers building for the further something I not seen the AI do in the past.

    That's right you can't terminate a loan which is fee paid, only a standard type loan can be.

    It also seems to be impossible to terminate a loan outside of a transfer window. I'm not sure if this is a real rule or if the game just thinks it's a transfer and thus it's illegal.

    If you check the scouts profile and check his report, as he has 'full scouting' for these regions he should have reports for a number of players. The reason it took 'one day' was because he'd already scouted the regions.

    I think that's a league specific rule, I've cancelled loans in Argentina outside the window.

    Hey here is a communication issue I have:



    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    I know that I am addressing the whole team in the first few exchanges there, but when Hughes aggressively addresses Ravenhill and some direct responses pop up I thought I was addressing Hughes not the whole crowd. Apparently I was wrong, because the chat went really well until that.

    Okay, I just finished the Demo season and I'm loving the game. But I have a question for you guys.

    I'd like to scout players but my scouting network is limited due to only having the one league loaded. Is there some way I could make the scouting circle wider or do I have to load a new game every time I can't find a player? Thanks in advance

    SI, you seriously need to look at font DPI. Playing on high resolutions is just horrible with the text on screen, as it has been for the last 7 years.

    We're in 2011 now, act like it please.

    After getting to grips with the layout, I'm absolutely loving the demo so far. The one word that keeps springing to mind is "detail", and not in an overwhelming way, either.

    I love how you can now give back as much as it gives you. For instance, managing Manchester United, I gave an assertive pre-season team talk. Chris Smalling got stressed, so I calmly told him there was no pressure - he was happy after that. So as far as team talks go, I can now connect my imagination with the game just because of the tone system. Very impressed.

    Early days, only played a few pre-season matches, but I'm really enjoying it. Don't normally get into demos this much.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I guess you're talking about the scouting knowledge part. Just sent him off to Ireland where he had none and the duration is 37 days so I guess so. In that case when is the best time to send him to scout England again? Will his knowledge decrease or do I just wait 6 months and he'll find different players or will it continue to just be 1 day scouting?

    Sorry if these are dumb questions, just got seriously back into football manager for the first time since 2009 so trying to work out the things which have changed!

    I've been reading through the 15 pages of comments, criticisms, praise, and moans. This game really does evoke emotions! I think it's testament to the developing team that so many people feel the need to get involved, and feel they can get involved. Getting direct response to comments from the team at SI is truly fantastic.

    My 2 cents:

    Where to start! Personally, I love it, and I will definitely be buying the game this year. I find it hard to really commit to the demo though, knowing I have to start all over again in 2 weeks, so I just picked my team to test it out with, Man Utd.

    Personal highlights: Custom views (doesn't seem to be too much comment on them), new search & player interaction. The game is also lightening fast on a holiday-mode run. Took about 10 mins to get from Mid-July to the end of December. 10 mins!!

    Now to make some time to play it properly!

    KUTGW.

    On the Opposition Instructions pre match screen the Ask Advice button brings up my Ass Man & both Coaches, all of which are greyed out. The tool tip says that "your coach is not sufficiently skilled in tactical knowledge and is therefore unable to offer advice" (NB.1 of the coaches has a tactical knowledge rating of 10, the others though are very poor).

    !?!

    Do I need a hugher than 10 rating in Tactical Knowledge for one of them (if so what rating?) or do the staff acquire the insight to make that advice with time?

    To be honest there's not too much point in sending him on scouting missions to regions he has full scouting on, I'd suggest either sending a different scout without full knowledge or sending him elsewhere. If you're after specifics (say young players) it may be worth scouting the U18 tournaments/leagues instead.

    Why did you not select the players that you want for the coming season. I do not think this is an issue that belongs in the feedback section for the new release of FM12.



    NB. Tevez being unhappy and wanting to leave, I think that SI did a good job in making this player chuck the toys out of the pram, well played SI...

    Please confirm if its a fee paid loan or not you refer to then re-read Kriss's comment, that may help explain if its an issue or not

    True, but compared to previous holiday-mode tests, I found it much faster. Not that I make a habit of holiday-mode stuff, I was just curious.

    1) He only has reports on just a few players. When fully scouting a nation, a scout (normally) finds far more players
    2) After a year, scout reports get deleted. Even without that, after a year (and more), all those reports will be outdated. How is this scout supposed to use his full knowledge of a country to provide me with new reports of that nation?


    The reason it took 'one day' was because he'd already scouted the regions.
    See my point 1 above.

    Isnt this counterlogical? Wouldnt you, in real life, ideally sent a scout with full knowledge of a nation to that nation? In order to be in the best position to accurately and consistently keep you up to date on developments in that country?

    , I'd suggest either sending a different scout without full knowledge
    Why should only a scout without knowledge be able to scout a nation? That suggests that the aim of scouting is to increase a scouts knowledge of a nation. Why would I care about that? I care about player reports from a nation.

    If you're after specifics (say young players) it may be worth scouting the U18 tournaments/leagues instead.
    How am I gonna do that if I dont have those leagues loaded (eventhough my custom database ensures enough players)? And how am I supposed to find 15/16 year olds (newgens)? Its not like the game simulates u12/u13/u14/u15/u16 leagues and tournaments.

    Before I raise this is as a bug I want to make sure if this was intentional or not, while playing the game and a list of fixtures are displayed, after clicking continue to view the results, does the font get enlarged? Here's an example:

    I have just been pressing continue picking eleven just to see what i can expect. I am due to play a friendly but 90% of my squad are on international duty or injured and on team selection there isn't much I can do as I can't continue as I don't have enough players to submit a team.

    So if a scout has full knowledge of a certain nation do I have to specifically send him to scout new players or does new reports get sent in over time even when not on an assignment. As a lower league club I wouldn't really be able to fire and hire a new scout every year so I'd need to send him to do a full search of the country again. If I sent him out to scout England a year later would he be able to give reports on new players instead of just one?

    1) Its so smooth now and the general passages of play are far more intellegent then before. I noticed that in my first 2 friendly's things seemed slow, but then I realised that it was a lack of fitness. Roll foward to the Charity Shield and the first few league games and the pace is relentless

    2) Animations for passing, shooting, different types of finishing, goalkeeping all majorly improved.

    3) Noting players showing great vision compared to last year. While in FM 11 you consistantly had strickers blasting shots from difficult angles, I have now twice seen a player lay it off to another where a shooting opportunity was available - brilliant

    4) Players actually close down and tackle properly with far more frequency than last year. If I have a ball winning midfielder he charges around intercepting and tackling, where as last year you had so many occasions where the opposiation would get a clear run at your defence and nobody would close down

    5) Watch your fullbacks and wingers - their play is far more dynamic, skillfull than last year. Wingers and fullbacks seem to drop the shoulder and blast past opponants while in tight situations where last year they would not have taken the player on in such a tight space

    6) Players are using their PPM's by default - I'm Man Utd and I am playing exactly as Utd play IRL.

    7) Finishing - I've several different types of finish instead of the usual blast it or tap it of last year. Players sinking it over the keeper, or the low rifled shot into the corner

    8) AI are way more intellegent - before I got the impression they were not using player roles and other non-default tactical settings - this year I see players playing in roles that I know have been tweaked ie: Deep Lying playmakers, wingers that cut inside, Trequarterista's etc

    7) Short passing has been greatly improved and shows real intellegence - some great one touch stuff and flicks.
    Agree with this, match engine is top class now. Obviously it works well in the premier league, but even playing in the Scottish third division, it is very realistic. There is a noticebly less amount of clear cut chances being infuriatingly missed also. The tactics and team talks are quality as well. I will definetly enjoy this more than fm11.

    I am really impressed by the match engine this year also the team reports and in depth player reports helps a lot when creating tactics.

    Loving the demo, has less stand-out bugs than any previous demo I can remember, so far anyway. Glad the homegrown players bug and the tv fixtures bugs from fm11 have been fixed. Only bad thing is that I've almost finished the demo and have to wait almost 2 weeks to play it properly :-)

    Roll on the 21st!

    anyone else finding it incredibly easy to keep clean sheets?
    also what's with the age-old keeper kick out, defender heads it straight back and forward runs clean through on goal? why has this still not been fixed?

    Good to know. I am VERY impressed with the ME - it does appear to be bug free and nearly all the old irritations have been addressed. I'm managing Man Utd in the demo but am a lower league manager (have my eye on AFC Wimbledon) for the long haul.

    At the end of the day the match engine is the heart of the game; if they've finally got it right it makes FM12 worth buying on the strength of that alone. I might just add that I have a pretty low-spec old laptop and the 3D is very smooth.

    Not a bug but a bit weird. Click on the DETAILS tab: your screen shows 'detail'- big font and scorers; 'Basic'show small font and just the results.

    There's a tickbox for that in Preferences.

    That was already on FM11 Alekos.

    Interesting those changes about scouts.. i wonder if they finally retain their scouting knowledge longer after you send them to a country they have no natural knowledge of.

    Results are becoming a bit concerning seems to some really high scoring games happening. I just had Man City beat Norwich 11-0, which is a bit extreme. This Guy was Utd and beat Liverpool 10-0 at Anfield!! Just seems to easy to win at the moment too.....

    That is something that wowed me, too. But remember that this is Mounir El Hamdaoui we're talking about. Still, an increase in player, transfer AI and agent aggressiveness would certainly make the game more exciting than before right off the bat. Maybe it was tweaked, maybe it wasn't, and maybe Miles talking about an increased likelyhood of players demanding a contract termination after relegation was all in my head.

    What is your experience on the matter compared to older FMs?
