    Default FHMi 2012 Ios player positions

    Hi!

    as I'm involved in the research I'm a bit sad to see that so many players can play on so many positions and even have more then one position as natural.

    i made a check on a random player "James Dance" ( ID 5004051)

    He have in FM2012
    right midfielder as natural and right wing as Accomplished

    but on the Ios version of 2012 he have:

    right midfielder natural
    right wing Accomplished
    Central mid Accomplished
    Attacking mid Accomplished
    centre forward Accomplished
    right forward Accomplished
    left mid unconvincing
    left wing unconvincing
    left forward unconvincing
    left back
    right back
    centre back awkward

    I don't know the exact rating of his positions in the Db but clearly the Ios version don't use the same code/values for what should be shown in the game...

    if needed i can take a Swedish player that I have in my DB and show the exact values entered in the DB.

    please look at this. needs to be sorted for an update.

    a other example is James Keene in Elfsborg.

    FM2012 shows him as

    AC = Natural

    In my DB he have

    SC =20
    AML =14
    AMC =10
    AMR= 15
    ML =10
    MC =5
    MR= 10
    the rest = 1

    On the Ios version of 2012

    he have
    Centre Forward natural
    Attacking mid Accomplished
    right wing Accomplished
    right forward Accomplished
    left wing competent
    left forward Competent
    left mid unconvincing
    Central mid unconvincing
    right midfielder unconvincing

    Its not a bug per-se - its a design restriction because of the difference in platform between the games.

    The reason for this is simply that FM PC has far more memory available to store the game database in so stores a seperate CHAR variable (8 bits) for each player position - FMH doesn't have as much memory available so instead stores a smaller set of positions and 'maps' them across to give the displayed positions for a player.

    Thus anyone who has 'center' set in the FMH database can play in a central position for all roles (ie. defender, midfielder, striker) - its not ideal but in the main is reasonably sane for the majority of players.
