    But other ones don't have this problem. They say that nothing has changed

    no its not a common issue.. Always verify cache before re-installing.

    saves a lot of headache.,

If I go to add new layers to existing leagues, there are problems with the cups of the divisions created: for example if I create the sixth-level Italian with their cups, when I load up on the fifth level, I have a big problem, since the second season, the Serie A teams also take part in the cups of the sixth level, often causing crashes ... with the advanced panel can avoid this problem by avoiding to load the cups if the sixth level is not loaded ... there is this problem since you inserted the new editor ... this is just a bug of the editor and that you support the advanced panel allows us to avoid

    Make the league from scratch and it fixes all the problems.

    Is there an opportunity to undo this or to undo the whole update?

    They "just" change the .exe (e.g. Pes series). Not only, they edit .txt, .xml and also hard-coded files.
    There are a lot of mods for games that don't even have an editor.

    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.
    I believe they will still be staying out for an extended period of time when scouting a full knowledge nation as part of a regional assignment. This is something that we are aware of and this is under review.

    To be fair the fix was more than a line of text in a news item. Previously a scout with 'Full Knowledge' of a nation would return on the same day with a very small number of recommended players. In the 12.1.0 update, scouts with 'Full Knowledge' of nations will now provide a far greater amount of scout reports for players within that specific nation.

    If you have concerns or issues with the current scouting system then please log a bug in the bugs forum and I will be happy to take a look.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    I will be honest & say that I missed the reference to changing what is reported, I am currently running a a quick test to see what happens to a scouts knowledge base over time & things do not look good, after 17 months a scout who has not been on any assignments still has 100% knowledge of England.

    I was under the impression that the knowledge base would reduce over time, is that assumption incorrect?

Sometimes what could be perceived as a relatively simple change (say for example the referee shirts clashing) could well be an issue which takes as long as a week for a single coder to fix. It's really not that straight-forward. Ideally yes we'd fix every single bug anyone ever comes across, it's just not feasibly possible to do so. As said, we really do appreciate anyone who takes the time to raise any issue and please if you can, continue to do so. Thanks.
    Thanks Neill - as you rightly guessed my last paragraph was contradictory on purpose lol Yeh they were things I reported, disappointed to see not one of them fixed. But I know they'll be gotten to eventually.

    I am clued in on the process works, barely lol. If you have more pressing issues then you'll concentrate on them. If it's low on the priority list then I know it won't get seen to as quick.

    I know you guys have a priority list and it's sitting on the desk of the manager to work through. I know other things are more important.

    I read through all the fixes, some interesting ones which I would never come across, but others would (like Asia for example)


    Thanks for your reply.

    The clashes should be resolved, we can't guarantee they will all be there as there's so many thousands of combinations but I've been through every one reported to us with save game uploads and they were all resolved.

    The other issue isn't a bug and is more a feature suggestion.

    Thanks Glenn, good to know

    It's a bug present since FM2010 and also present in FM2011.
    I don't know if there is the same bug in FM2012, I didn't try yet, but I think so.

    i dont know what happened to this game after the update. im from germany using a german languagefile, whichs doesn´t work anymore after the patch.
    even the modified lnc file doesnt work anymore.
    and whats absolutely disappointing that the advanced panels dont work anymore......there are authors which spent thousands of hours to create great league structures which we can´t use anymore, too.

    please tell me that all this occurs because of an error caused by the update...otherwise i have to play 11er version.

    no its not a common issue.. Always verify cache before re-installing.

    saves a lot of headache.,
    How would I go about doing that? Is there a thread somewhere explaining reinstallation on steam?

    Can I ask seriously... is it being looked into the fact that player search goes slow with lots of Scout Reports?

    It took me hours to remove all the scout reports, and I constantly have to remove the scout reports I don't want manually.

    Sorry, but I think with this stupid fixation of chrash, today you lost a certain number of customers.. my interest in the game has finally gone down. Since you have removed advanced rules, there is any hope you will make at least decent the normal editor? I mean, at least some basic function as:
    Possibility to set a third play off match;
    possibility to set an host nation for a custom competition;
    possibility to remake a customize champions league without lose the dinamic reputation of leagues;
    possibility to take qualified teams from a determined stage of another competition, or at least the winners!;
    until the normal editor will remain at this painful state, I've lost any interest to buy future editions of football manager
    best regards

    If anyone is having issues with skins or bespoke language packs, it is possibly due to the .xml files pointing at the previous release of FM12.
    It may be something else, but navigate to the .xml file of the affected skin / file, and amend the release version from 12.0.1 to 12.1.0. Worked for me in this thread: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...ns-not-working

    Same here (I've tried cverifying my cahce/ deleting the roaming folder) I think lots of people are having the same problem though.. so I assume it's an error with the latest patch.

    But if you go onto Steam/Libary/ then right click Football Manager 2012 and click propertires/ then click the 'local files' tab at the top/ then click 'verify the integrity of the game cache'

    No worries.

    I'm not sure, I wouldn't have thought so... but don't take my word on that.

    If you delete the FM12 roaming folder, that does wipe out the settings though. But I'm not sure about Verifying the cache.

    When it says "Fixed Division X Schedule" does this require a new game to work or when the new season comes it will generate the fixed schedule?

    It seems to have just double checked things really, hence 'verify' I suppose. It has added the fake.edt and team holland.ddt file again, so I just deleted those.

    Not a bug as such, just somethign I would ask SI to consider the implementation of.

    When you right click on a player there is the 'Scout Report' option.
    I would like to propose this tab be removed for players who dont have scout reports, but only removed from the options when you right click.

    Its not a big thing but it can be annoying if you dont know who you have scouted, or if you select that option by mistake

    It shouldnt mess your save up, in my case though, my players (after Patch) can no longer pass, score, defend or play decent football, my tactic has been totally destroyed with this patch.

    This is a BIG issue that needs to be addressed quickly: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...tactics-screen.

    I can't believe this issue is even in this game and hasn't been touched for at least a year!!!

    Disappointed the Welsh attendance bug wasn't on fix list - clubs attracting unrealistically low attendances makes the league pretty unplayable.

    Am playing as Bradford PA in league 2 in 2017. Noticed the club history graph used to have a 40 year gap, between the 60s and 00's. Now however, graph shows that Bradford PA were in L2 as recently as 01/02.

    Right, I've been trying for a few hours now, Steam will not update my game.

    Upon opening Steam, it says 'Download starting', despite me repeatedly setting it to 'do not automatically update this game'.

    Nothing happens. Downloads reads 'Current Network Usage - 0 bytes download rate, 0 bytes peak rate, 0 bytes downloaded' - the latter is interesting, given at one point when it did work, it told me that I had downloaded about 26 MB.

    I pause the update (despite it not actually updating) and then resume it. The game reads 'update paused' still. Still nothing happening in the downloads window.

    Sometimes, the game is featured in the downloads section. More often than not, it is not there, and I have no activity at all.

    Any suggestions are welcome. Might I suggest Sports Interactive drop Steam in return?

    I'm still missing the play off/ relegation zone shading even after deleting the folder and verifying the game. Annoying as it is it wont stop me playing the game

    I know it will never happen but having the option to restore to a previous version/ patch of the game would be nice - I've lost several perfectly good games in the past because updates have

    Hi Christopher, so what exactly do you want it to do? Not download the update? If this is stopping you even playing the game I'd suggest verifying the cache (this will most likely download the patch though), details on how to do this here - http://community.sigames.com/showthr...=1#post7184719

    In all honesty I don't know why it's tried to update if you don't want it to - are you still able to run the game as it is?

    In all honesty I don't know why it's tried to update if you don't want it to - are you still able to run the game as it is?
    I always play the game in offline mode, but today I went online in order to download the editor. I have always had it on 'do not update automatically', so quite why it's been turned on again, I have no idea. However, upon going online and downloading the editor, it began updating, or at least, saying it was updating.

    I've tried verifying the cache, defragmenting, the lot. It's just not happening. As long as it knows there's an update and that I've not downloaded it, it won't allow me to play the game. I HAVE to update now, whether I like it or not, to be able to play the game, but I can't and I don't know why.

    I've noticed that if I verify the cache, shut down, reopen Steam, the download appears in the downloads section, but it does not download. If I click 'Play', I am presented with the verifying cache window, and am then told Steam servers are busy.

    Okay thanks for getting back to me. Have you been able to turn Steam back into 'offline' mode? If you can, does the game run then?

    Have you tried verifying the cache as I stated above? It may also be worth restarting your system as that may also help with the reconnection.

    Probably you already tried, but I had the same problem. Just needed to reboot my computer, disconnect from my wifi, reconnect, then go back into Steam

    Hi all

    Couple of things I have noticed, not sure if anyone has the same: 1. all rounds of games (pl, champs league) are played at the same time, same day (no tv changes), 2. cant confirm selecting my back up tactic during a game

    Does anyone else have the same? Have used all patches etc.

    Thanks

    Si

    major major issues with the update patch for myself

    firstly im managing bristol city 2018 season im in world class rep and can ask for a parent club this has to be a bug considering the only teams with a higher rep than myself is man utd and barcelona.

    secondly match engine is appalling now jerky slow and when making subs will show me highlights even though i dont have them on.

    next i cannot now ask for a new stadium or expand before this patch i played at 3pm uk time i had those options logged out and then fm updated im now 9 game months further through and still no option.

    hall of fame has a bug now where sir alex ferguson shows up in both 1st and 9th place in my hof.

    and the other bugs i have noticed so far are im getting players who are playing every game getting "unhappy at not getting first team action". my guys who this involves have played all bar 1 game since this patch.

    also the other problem i have noticed is signing younger players all considering contracts and not accepting or rejecting until after deadline transfer or in the case of the team who has the player not accepting 8 months on.

    overall this patch has made this game 10 times worse.

    If I reopen in offline mode, I'm told 'This game is not ready to be played in Offline mode'. It also reads 'update paused' next to the game's icon.

    Was playing normally when i alt+tabbed and the game just closed, never happened to me before so hopefully was just a one-time crash.

    I also have the problem with the relegation colours not showing, i've tried to check the game integrity but didn't fixed, not a major concern for me though, i'm using the Flex skin by the way.

    saw no fix to liverpool topping the sponsorship thing for premier league where united should.
    and some players need buffing a bit to fit thier real life standard, sturridge left on a free from chelsea, and is only 2-3 stars accoring to man utd scout, making him lower then oxlade-chamberlin, i thought that would happen.

    Sorry to hear that, I assume you're running in full screen mode? We're aware of the relegation colours and we're looking into it. Very odd as we've not seen this at all internally - when using a default skin does it show up?

    Right, no joy. Backwards step even. Game doesn't appear in the 'downloads' section of Steam and it still can't decide if it's updating or not anyway, giving me the option of pausing the download (despite it not actually downloading) when it says 'update paused'.

    Also, despite me changing it back to 'do not automatically update' it tells me it will automatically update the game. Very bored of this now. It looks as if I'll have to reinstall from scratch, which is a massive inconvenience as I have to go out and find an internet connection fast enough to download it.

    Again, I bought the game, why can't I be the one to play it when I want to?

    hello i'd really like some help. the new patch 12.1.0 has installed itself via steam but is there any way i can remove it and play the game on an earlier patch version? im starting a new game and there is a certain feature which has changed and makes the game less fun for me during the first few months of the season.

    No, once you're patched up you cannot 'go back' I'm afraid.

    I'd try verifying the cache, it may take two or three attempts to do this. Let me know if you have any luck, thanks.

    Don't think there is a way of changing that unless you reinstall the game but even then if you go to update it, it will just pick the latest patch.

    Thanks for taking the time to bring up the issues. If you want to help, could you please create individually posts for each issue in the relevant sections of the bugs forum here? - http://community.sigames.com/forumdi...012-Bugs-Forum

    If you do this we'll be able to look into the issues and make sure they're logged and potentially fixed.

    The changes were so minor I didn't bother with a change-list to be honest.

    Main ones you may or may not notice:

    - Toned down corner delivery
    - Harder to get header on target under pressure
    - Better AI attacking corner set-up
    - Tweaked AI use of touchline instruction
    - Fixed a bug relating related to positioning of full backs in defensive third
    - Fixed defensive line pushing up on goal kick leaving team vulnerable to header back over their heads for forward to run onto

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Hi Neil, thanks for the response at such a late hour too, much appreciated.

    I'm running the game on Mac, how do I remove settings files on OS X?

    I seem to be having a serious issue here. Before, if I wanted to make changes and go from say 4-4-2 to 4-3-3, I could just click on confirm changes when I'd made the formation change, and it'd change it. Now, for some bizarre reason, it'll happily let me make substitutions, but when it comes to changing players positions, formations etc, it either doesn't give me an option to confirm the changes, or it does, it says it's making the changes, but doesn't make them at all. This is VERY frustrating when you're trying to go for a late equaliser and you find your team not playing attacking football at all, players in their original positions when they should've changed etc. For me this is a serious serious issue.

    I'm a bit of a maniac when it comes to the theory of game mechanics, rather than discussing over subjective impressions of players regarding the changes. I think others would appreciate those change-lists like in the past, too. On paper the tweaks seem nice, i'll go check the real thing!

    Cheers for the info, Paul!

    You need to press the 'play' button on the formation to make certain and confirm the team will now play this formation.

    Hi,

    Since i install patch 12.1, everytime i change who is controling the match preparation (me or my assman) the "formation" bar on the match preparation panel go back to minimum level.

    Anyone notice this?

    Right, so that didn't work. The only way it worked was me clicking the button to make it my starting formation.

    Done, still nothing.

    If I pause the download then double click on the game, it verifies the cache then tells me the servers are too busy. It's still not appearing in the downloads section.

    I know it can work, as I've downloaded the Editor twice tonight.

    I have noticed after the new patch a weird bug. I'm Man Utd and I have the option of a Parent Club. Surely this is a bug?

    Yeah that's the 'play' button I mean, to make it your starting formation (but once the game has already kicked off).

    I'll be honest I'm not a Mac expert, please email me at neil.brock[at]sigames.com and I'll make sure our Mac guy looks at this first thing tomorrow. If you can reinstall without too much effort it may well help with this issue.

    That's really bizarre, and to be honest quite confusing (compared to the old version where basically you just made the changes and bam, they were implemented). It also means (I'm guessing anyway) then having to change my different 4-3-3 formation back to what I want as my original 4-3-3 formation (if I'm losing with 5mins to go I stick 5 men up front, before that, just a straight 4-3-3, will I now have to change back from the 5 men up front version of 4-3-3 to the original version of 4-3-3 after each game, and make sure that I reclick on 4-4-2 as my starting tactic for the next game?)

    I have found another bug after this patch. I have a player on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge and in his General Happiness, it says 'Hoping to gain first team experience by going on loan' It wasn't like this before the patch.

    Okay, I'll try and reinstall, if something goes awry I'll drop you a line.

    Cheers.

    When you change your 'starting tactic' mid-match, when the match finishes it reverts back to whatever your tactic was at the start of that game.

    Hi PaulC,
    I would like to know why do you recommend that, were there some changes that influence directly (like a more realistic reputation as ex Sunday League Player)?

    It's fine now after you play a league match.

    However some changes (such as competition rules and scheduling changes) you'll need to start a new game for them to take affect.
    Hi Neil Brock,
    Does the changes happen once a new league starts (mostly the competition rules) or by removing and then adding the league. Or the only way is to start fresh?

    The starting world reputation for Sunday league is now 0, so if you start a new game you'll get the full effects of that.

    Whereas if you continue a game where you started with Sunday League at a higher number, which may now be higher if you have done ok, it will be a bit easier to motivate your players than if you restart.

    - User now gets to pick their feeder club when the board agree to allow the user to pick their own team rather than just pick from suggested clubs.

    Can you tell me if the success rate when I do pick my own club has increased from previous versions? Do we need to check club reputation in FMRTE to make sure that the target club is in a proper range compared to our club, because the gap between the lower levels of "National" and "Continental" is so immense that it is not very useful. I suppose over half the clubs in the world have "national" reputation...

    Maybe the board could hint a bit as to what kind of club they would think realistic?

    In all honesty I'm not 100% sure, I'll have to check for you tomorrow when I'm back in the office I'm afraid.
