I have verified the cache twice now and restarted the Steam client, but as it stands I am still seeing things as in the screenshots on the bug thread.

The in-game status has me on v188.8.131.52761 - is this correct?
I'll now follow the next step and delete FM.exe, unless anyone can advise otherwise.
No success with deleting FM.exe either.
Must admit I'm leaning towards the skin solution, if that's sorted it for you Matorko, although I do quite like the default dark one.
I can ask for a parent club with Aston Villa now :S
Have the dead been taken out?
I only ever play in commentary mode, with the screen showing my team's stats. If I pause and go to make a sub/tactic change and go back to the match, I now get the pitch view and have to re-select stats.
Seem to remember the exact same thing happened in FM11.
No bother, I'll just re-install the game, and apply the previous patch.....oh hang on, thanks to steam I guess that's now impossible.
"stupid" question - did you disable the advanced Panel ?
(if this shall be the merry christmas then)
why hasnt my game updated yet
Steam automatically updated for me, but when I go to start new game it says i'm still on 12.0.0, it also says on the steam update history that it hasn't updated? although Steam did an update about 1 hour ago??
Also having the issue with the relegation and promotion zone shading having disappeared. I have tried to cleared local content and reinstalled the game +deleted settings + verified steam files to no effect. This is impacting the standard skins and also my installed skins. Any ideas as to how i might be able to fix this - it's quite annoying?! Many thanks
I just now registered, mainly because i found that my crashes when i go to the page of one of my 'regen' players, all my 'regens' are fine, apart from my right-back defender, i click him, and the game makes a crash. i have tried by going to his profile using 'right click' and then 'training report' (playing in dutch btw. so sorry if i say it in wrong names) and that goes just fine, untill i want to see the 'profile' page, then it crashes again . annything i can do?
So, before a matchday, I go to Options->Match. I have....
Match view - Only Commentary
Classic view - Chelsea stats
Left split view - Chelsea stats
Right split view - Chelsea stats
camera. highlight mode, show highlights are all greyed out.
I have my team's stats on the whole screem so I guess the split view choices are irrelevant??
Started a match, went to sub/tactics screen, cancelled it, pitch view. Checked Options->Match, it has the same settings as what it was before the match started.
It's definitely broke :-(
If that doesn't work, please upload your save game to the FTP, create a thread here - http://community.sigames.com/forumdi...es-and-Crashes - and let us know the player in question so we can take a look. FTP details here - http://community.sigames.com/showthr...P-Instructions

1. It's my own risk if the game crashes or not (or ? )
2. My game NEVER have crashed or made any problems when using the advanced Rules
so does the file of Magicmastermind it never made any problems it just makes a good game even better
And it's not for the sake of users disabling it...cause u can make wonderful files with the advanced Rules.
Without the advanced panel i will loose my interest to this game.

Well, sorry to say, but there are many bugs still in the game. For instance, the red color showing the relegation places on the league table isn't visible. And the ones that are still active are really starting to annoy me (the back button returning you literally to the previous screen... Waiting for 12.1.1, hope it's coming out soon.
In the "Preferences" it says this game version 0.4. Is that the latest one?
Two "Bugs" i noticed after installing Patch 12.1.0.
First the "advanced Editor Panel" doesnt work anymore. Second a created Language File cant be loaded. When trying to Load in Preferences it seems to load but turns back into English and the created Language File dissapears.
Any thoughts why that happens?
ive also noticed when i try to use my editor itloads up, but ive got a strange wallpaer and the writing well you cant even read it,it has ruined my editor what do ido now?
The advanced rules editor has been disabled on purpose im afraid.
Any comment on the skin problem? I currently not playing as I was using a skin with larger font. I can't even find it now!!
Just come across a slight problem on the player screen. The stats have lost some spacing, this was fine before the update so I can only assume the update changed it. see picture below.
We just felt the balance of the ME in 11.3 was very good so decided not to make too many changes since. That doesn't mean work hasn't been ongoing in the background for future releases obviously!
Does this means we can see our 'B' teams ca/pa when we are managing 'A' team ? Because I still can't.Originally Posted by PaulC
Trying all the tricks to make the custome skins to appear have failed. Any ideas?
Editor problem solved now
Any Idea yet why edited Language Files dont work anymore with the latest Patch?
Custom skin problems getting completely ignored?! Help.
I've got a small problem...
It seems I've lost the ability to confirm tactical changes during a match. I'm not entirely sure if this is patch related, but I did not encoutner this problem last night before the game was updated.
I should add, I switched tactics by clicking on the backup tactic I had set-up. It doesn't matter what I do afterwards; the confirm button remains greyed out.
I found that if an English scout was scouting in England as part of a UK & Ireland assignment they would remain in England for a number of months rather than the single day under a single nation assignment. I'm really not sure that the fix people were looking for was an additional line of text saying why a scout can provide a full player list after 1 day.
Dear Sigames, since 1996 I'm a customer and a fan of Championship Manager/Football Manager. I respect you for what you made in all these years, but I'm really really disappointed about what you're doing with the editor.
Did you ever ask yourselves why a lot of people use the advanced editor or want to learn how to use it? Because there is an abyss, a grotesque and unbelievable difference between features of the advanced panel and the ones of the basic editor.
FM2011 editor had some new features compared to the one of FM2010, but this year the editor is almost the same of previous edition!
There are too restrictions with the basic editor, so please, please, please, please: release a patch for the editor to upgrade it with a lot of new features.
We want to make league structures like MLS, we want to make editable subdivisions into other subdivisions, we want to have the possibility to insert a list of specific stadiums for a competition, we want to have several features currently present only into the advanced editor.
This is a constructive criticism and I hope you can do something to release important upgrades for the basic editor.

Custom skins............................................. .................................................. ....................
Custom skins works just fine for me.
Since I downloaded the update, I have a big problem. Everytime I try to sign a player or a staff, the bar where I can edit my transfer budget gets greyed out and I can't edit it anymore. I had no problems before but since the update has come, it happened everytime
Fantastic, match engine back to being jerky!
Add to that i've got no skins, makes me not a very happy boy!
Still no reason for this? I prefer the custom Skin I was using.
The default dark skin is ok for now, but I'm hoping to get my custom Skin working again soon...
The fix that has been used sounds a little too imprecise, for me a better option would be to temporarily partition the necessary funds to complete the deal from the main transfer budget, if the deal falls through then the funds are once again made available.
For those of you who have problems with custom skins not showing up try this:
(Explained for Flex12 skin)
Fix: Go to the Flex12 folder.
There is a file called: flex12.xml
Open it with an editor (wordpad or such)
Change the line: <string id="required_version" value="12.0.1" translate="false"/>
<string id="required_version" value="12.1.0" translate="false"/>
Other skins should have a similar .xml file. Check in the folder an look for "required_version" value and see if changing it to 12.1.0 helps.
It works for Flex12 so i guess it might work for other skins too.
I have the problem with the colours missing on the league tables. I have verified Cache etc but no joy. I dont have a custom skin, I just have a badge pack installed, which still works fine.
small but really annoying!
Steam is refusing to update the game for me.
It states 'Download starting' but doesn't do anything. If I go to the downloads part of Steam I'm presented with the 'Resume All' option, but this does nothing. Every now and then it crashes too.
In addition to this, every time I open Steam I have to do it about two or three times, as it keeps wanting to download an update that never finishes and always starts again with only a few MB to go.
If anyone can help with that, I'd really appreciate it. Read on for my thoughts on Steam...
I've had so many problems with Steam, I absolutely hate it. If I pay for a game, I should be the one to decide when I can play it. Not a third party application that is as far as I can tell, absolutely useless and only a hindrance. I live in an area with an exceptionally slow internet connection, with no signs of an upgrade to fibre optic in the near future. It is not fair to assume that all Football Manager customers have access to a speedy internet connection and can therefore immediately download and install updates and get on with playing the game. It really is a steaming pile of something, I'll give it that.
Which option would that be?When tutoring when asked to change a player’s personality is used the competition news item no longer states little was gained
As an example if you have a wage budget of £45,000 but are spending £50,000 the board will normally restrict how much you can offer in future contract talks so to get around this in past versions you could move all your transfer budget to your wage budget to remove the wage restriction, then once you've agreed terms with a player move the funds back into your transfer kitty.
If you're having issues with the patch we very much recommend verifying the cache as described in the FAQ, this will resolve the majority of issues when attempting to run the game.
It work fro me as well.
The update crashed steam, and then I was unable to open it again. Now I have uninstalled the game and steam and it's taking a lifetime to reinstall. This a common issue with updating through steam? Might sound stupid but it's the first year I've been using it for FM.
