    Actually, they said that a long time ago.
    SI and Steam stated that when you update the game via steam (and this year steam is the only way to do that), you must always update with the last version available.
    So i would think that would be very clear to everyone that, when you update the game, there is no way to go back.

    What you may argue is, the old system was better. Last year we could apply a patch, test it, and if we didn't like it, we could uninstall the game, and install it again with the patch that we choose. (for example last year there were 3 patches, but many people decided that patch 11.2 after testing patch 11.3)

    This year we dont have this choice, because SI... the owner of the game... decided like this! It's their right!

    I do not know if it's been mentioned, but I have a much bigger issue when it comes to employe the staff than I had prior to 12.1.0. Previously I could have up to four coaches, in addition to the GK Coach, Fitness Coach, and Ass Manager, for a team in the Championship. After 12.1.0, I cant have more then two coaches, and it's pointless to ask the Board for more.

    Is there have been some changes in relation to this with 12.1.0?

    Was there a change to the ME? Couldn't see it when I was looking through the changelist. All three of my tactics have stopped working after the update and they were bloody brilliant before it. Might just be a coinsidense but i've hardly been able to score since the update, my strikers, central defenders and fullbacks have all, and I mean ALL (key players, first team, rotation, backup, youth) been averaging around 6.0 now but were all averaging between 6.9-7.6 before the patch (most in the range of 7.3-7.5). Is this just a coinsidense or do I need to make new tactics, or is this maybe because of the change to the moral settings or what is going on???

    I know they made a change so that you have to stick with the build of coaches the board gives you. That is if the Board allows 2 coaches, 2 First team coaches, 2 Youth Coaches and so forth you can't change that. So even if you only have 1 youth coach you can't sign 3 First team coaches. The max there is still 2. :P Bummer, I know.

    I think that prior to patch 12.1, you could have as much staff as the total.
    for example, yur board allow 4 coaches, 3 first team coaches and 3 youth coaches.
    In the previous patch you could contract 10 coaches, but with this patch you can only contract 4 coaches. If you want more you must decide if you are gonna contract them as first team coaches or youth coaches.

    @James9: SI and Steam dont force the update on you! If you change your default setting in your steam acount, then you only update the game when you want! Actually... the exact same way with the windows default setting, and i think with almost every piece of software around the world!
    Incorrect, for me anyway. I have set to "do not auto update" on various games including the last three Total War games and FM12. Only to find that Steam decided to change that setting so it forces me to update.

    I trust you've added your complaint to the thread in the Steam forums? If this happens it's a bug and they need nagging about it.

    Hm, strange. Before I took over Derby they had 4 youth coaches, 2 coaches, 1 fitness coach, 1 ass manager, and 1 gk coach. Having fired all together, they let me now no more than 2 coaches, 1 gk coach, 1 fitness coach, and ass manager. In addition to that I get no more than 1 scout, in contrast to 2 which was at the club before I took over. What is the reason for this irrational change?

    That is the problem they go and change something that was not broken they gave us the choice in last year's game but now they decide that they want to let the customers down. I am not disagreeing that it is their game and they own licence and whatever else they claim to own about the game. What I am disagreeing is they have no right to tell us that we have to play the game how they want us to play it. If I do not like something I should retain the right to change. If I go out to eat and order a steak and it comes to my table uncooked then I send it back and ask for it the way I like the chef does not tell me that I have to accept it. It is simple customers have the right to choose and SI have taken that away

    AI teams often have more coaches then the board allows, so what they had when you took over might not be what you can get when you start hiring new once. If you go to the boardroom you will see how many of which they allow you.

    It still does tell you the risk. If they made clear that if you update the new patch you are not allowed to go back then that would be better than telling us afterwards when we have already update the patch

    Did awhile ago, didn't get a reply for 3 weeks. So give up with Steam forums. Will try find out my pw again and give it another shot though.

    You have stated that it doesnot matter if I agree with you are not. So that gives me the right to choose what I agree with. so why should i have to accept that SI can now take the right away from me to choose how I play the game

    I've not played FM 12, so I can't comment on the various patches specifically. But the idea that you can't pick and choose which patch to play on is ridiculous. If SI are going to continue along with this steam thing, then I really think they should offer a way to manually 'rollback' to which patch you want to play on.

    I've had a dig as well although it hasn't happened to me, there's definitely something out of kilter, don't give up though, I've found they're pretty good at addressing problems but a bit slow as you say.

    you've mistaken me, im not dismissing your point because it does not agree with mine, im stating what happens when you buy a PC game, you do not own the game, you own a license for the game, nothing more im afraid. You have no real rights over the software, you play with what SI decide, it is their game, they own everything about it, and can change exactly what they want, when they want, thankfully SI are good to us, unlike a lot of software companies.

    As you said SI adopted this model, they also make the game that you pay for, so they are the people to approach if you want optional patches.

    Yes, I notice that. I dont know if you have experienced after 12.1.0 but many of the staff that I m trying to sign pull them self out of the contract after the agreement. What is that all about?

    You need to accept it because that's the way it now is, only the most recent version is avaialble.
    If you want the option to revert to older versions you'll need to take it up with Steam, unfortunately most of their 30 million plus users don't so I doubt you'll have much luck.

    Nope, they signed up to the Steam methodology, one reason being they'll only have to support one version, it's that methodology which makes rolling back impossible so Steam are the people to approach.
    That's not to say that SI can't support a request for such a feature but somehow I doubt they will.

    I would imagine everyone working off 1 version and one delivery method makes their lives much easier when it comes to finding problems in the game.

    Am I not going to get a respond to this? Just want to know what is going on and how I should react. This happend immediately after the update, which is why I'm connecting this issue with the update. Like I said, it might just be a coincidense and the moral is just dropping, or that I just need 7 points to secure win in the league and the players aren't handeling the pressure. So I'm just looking for an answer to the first question. Was there a change to the ME that might explain all my tactics stopped working or is this due to moral and or pressure?

    The changes to the morale system made my friend's tactic obsolete immidiately. My tactic which was very similar worked fine, no changes to the performances or the style of play. So I proposed upping the Closing Down instructions from 16-17 to 20 on all the midfielders and forwards (just like they are in my tactic) and problem was solved equally quick.

    Most likely, his tactic with Napoli thrived on superb morale to such a degree that even though he pushed up high there was no need to tell them to put pressure on the opposition defense as they did so more than enough just by being fired up. When the eternal state of superb-morale-induced semi-godhood dissipated, the tactic fell apart.

    The AI is also better at defending themselves now.

    So yes, you either need to tweak the tactic or build a new one from scratch.

    Alright, thanks for the response. I will look into tweeking the tactics then, although I am a bit wary of doing that right now, as there are four games left off the season and I need 6 points to secure a victory. Might have to do it though as I had 8 games left before the update and was unbeaten in the league and had a 15 point lead. :S

    How can I uninstall the 12.1 patch please ?
    I would like to continue playing with the 12.04 version.

    I installed the last patch because I hoped the transfer system would have been improved but I don't notice any difference.

    it seems that the new patch has done more harm than good and this isn't me saying that because it has got harder but there are several issues being discussed which shouldn't happen on the release of an update to make the game better!!

    Again no you cannot, you will have to activate the game through Steam, as soon as you do this it will update the game to the newest version. There is no way for you to go back to the previous version of the game now you have updated.

    Have you never been on the GD on a patch/game release week? Its the exact same every time, not everyone likes the changes, they spam 30 threads with the same stuff over and over and it eventually dies down, just in time for SI to release another change and we start all over again.

    I hope you are happy SI you have taken away our rights to decide what version of the game we play and you cannot give a valid reason why you have done this. I have spent my money with others and now we are being told that it is your game, your product nd you can do what you like. I might as well give you my bank details so that you can steal my money because that is what you have done with this new patch. You are denying my right to choose because you have more power than the little customer and know one can touch you because we are small and you guys are the corporate power. Everyone should have the right to decide it feels like Miles and SI are dictators

    James. If they had taken money for the patch, then you would've had a point but they don't.
    The only right you have is basically to play the game the way SI intended it to.
    Not having a go at you, mate. I'm just saying.

SI are telling me accept the changes and there is nothing I can do because they do not care anymore about customers and they own the game rights. This is not fair and I will keep on saying it. SI can choose to ban me from this forum because I will keep going until they answer my questions
    Your problem is with Steam, not SI.

Like I said, it might just be a coincidense and the moral is just dropping, or that I just need 7 points to secure win in the league and the players aren't handeling the pressure. So I'm just looking for an answer to the first question. Was there a change to the ME that might explain all my tactics stopped working or is this due to moral and or pressure?
    There were some minor changes, which would affect you if you were heavily relying on set pieces to score. Accuracy of delivery has been reduced and AI teams have better instructions, which levels the playing field. To check, look at your goals / shot ratio is the stats screen. If it is lower than 1 goal in 7 shots, it is likely you were overachieving at set pieces. To double check, see if any of your defenders has scored 10 pus goals. If you see both, then you were probably doing well largely through set piece dominance, which might mean you now have to rethink your tactical approach.

    actually it has led to Villa not being able to sign scouts and youth coaches!!

    It's so vastly different between 'not announcing a feature' which is coded into the game, and something else which has to be hacked to become operational. We can't spend time adding 'warnings' and other such things to something which I'm afraid we have never wanted to, nor ever have supported. It was not created for outside use and should not be used as such.

    All the things you suggest we do to support the advanced editor (something which we've made clear we don't want to do) such as adding a warning message or marking it as dirty, would take up valuable coding time which could be used on other areas of the game. I'm sorry, the final word on this we've made our decision regarding the advanced editor and that, as said, is final.
    I can understand your point about the advanced rules, Neil. I don't agree with them, but that is another discussion. The thing that makes me wonder then is why ain't the basic editor made with more features. As it is now you can't create half the real life comps that exists. The thing is that the basic editor ain't good enough as it is now, and you really should up your work improving it. If it is so that you really won't to make the users happy, well then it is about time the basic editor is improved with a dozen times..

    Hasn't been mentioned but I'd be surprised if they do one before the January window ends, so yeh Feb/March is a fairly safe bet.

    Just noticed I'm able to ask for a parent team with SPURS??? I've got continental reputation and won the league 3 times on the trott and Champs League last season, surely a bug

    I was never ever able to that before as reputation wise we're second behind Man Utd in England and in the top 10 worldwide - befpre the patch it was always greyed out and said 'We're already in the top division' assuming that it's against the rules to have a parent club in the Premier League

    Hmm, no I don't think that's the issue. Well Kompany did get 11 goals total over the course of a season, 1 from open play, 2 from indirect free kicks and 8 from corners. Surly that is not that great, considering how much I play him and just how many corners I get per game and that he is just about the only person that scores from headers in my team. (The second highest scoring defender scored two goals, both from corners, both came in the same game, and that was after the patch). What happened to my tactics was that my possession dropped, shots fired plummeted and the opponents got four or five times as many shots as they used to. I am thinking now that it must be a combination of the opposition organizing there defence better then they did before the patch, which is making it harder for my team to play through them, and my players not doing as good a job at putting pressure on the opposition do to lower morale as BiggusD suggested. Or would you suggest something else?

    Edit: Have actually noticed since i first posted this that form might have played a part in this aswell. Everybody seems to be recovering from this slump (although not playing at the same level as they did before the patch), exept my top goalscorer and top central defender, that are still struggling. Since the others are starting to come around they must do aswell eventually.

    No, I don't think it's a bug, and if I recall correctly you could do this before the patch aswell, not 100% sure on that though. Saw another person on this forum giving an exelent answer to you question: There is nothing stopping Arsene Wenger from asking for a parent club but he would propably get the same reply as you would get if you tried it.

    I don't see a problem just because an option isn't grayed out anymore. Doesn't change a thing ingame.

    Default Reminder of how complex this game is

    Reading through the posts here it reminds me how we really don't know how the game works and that leads to lots of speculation and thought about how it might work and why we are successful or unsuccessful.

    Then when a patch comes out and changes something like morale we have people who suddenly find the game much easier or much more difficult. I can't help but wonder if the former just had a good off-season of new signings and the latter had a key injury. Or one of four dozen other factors happened.

    In other words: it's bloody hard to tell what is making the difference. But isn't that what we love and brings us back - figuring out the puzzle.

    Next up...correlation is not causation. ;)

    looking at the poll most people agreed the difficulty was about right on patch 12.04. 12.01 has completely ruined it for me.

    Whereas if you look in the difficulty thread there were a fair few folk doing extraordinary things with teams that should not be doing them so early in the game and claiming the game was too easy.

    I am astonished people think this game is too difficult in the patch. I suck and like easy games but its is amazing people are moaning about morale. I still find it too easy to have high morale. I am 22nd in the league at present and my whole squad is good-superb more or less. Seriously, some people take such knee jerk reactions on threads like this. The pathc was out a few hours and some people were complaining about morale. The changes really werent significant and if these cry babies knew anything about statistics they would know that a 10 minute sample size is irrelevent.

    Are you looking at the database selection? if so that will say 12.0 as there have still been NO database updates. You need to check game status to check which version you are running.

    UPDATE 12.1.1 NOTE

    Just to add we've released an update to address two issues we felt needed a swift fix, both 'fixes' are mentioned in the changelist below. You may note your version number is now 12.1.1 - as before the update is totally save game compatible, there is no updated database and there is absolutely no reason to start a new game - both fixes will come into effect in your save game.

    Hope I am making myself clear here and is this normal? Since it didnt happen before the update.
    Has there been any SI response to this query yet? I really can't see why this has been changed, and would appreciate it if anyone could let me know how to change it back. cheers

    Just loaded up Steam to find that it was donwloading yet another FM12 update; can anyone shed some light on what this one is for? I'm sorry If I am being a bit naive and lazy by not reading any above posts which to explain what this update fixes but, I'm too lazy

    I know about the update some days back, which has made the game far mroe challenging and enjoyable, but, for this one to be implemented, will I have to start a new save or is it save-game compatible?

    And yet I still can't manage my U19's.

    I told you guys about the bug ages ago and you said you were aware of it, I'm not the only one having it, and it still isn't fixed.

    This update was only for potential issues which would crash the game, all other issues if we've said we're looking into them we're doing exactly that.

    okay sorry if I seemed a bit assertive, just a little frustrated because as an athletic bilbao manager I depend on my youth and I really need to select the ones I want in team selection.

    With that issue, if you leave it a week you'll be able to re-approach the coach and offer them terms again. It's not ideal but it's a workaround until we can fix the issue.

    Neil,

    And what about the bug with the match preparation?
    It's been related to the bug forum, but so far...
    http://community.sigames.com/showthr...reparation-Bug

    This pretty much prevents me from using my assist manager to control my match preparation.

    Hey guys, just wondering if someone could help...

    I've just come back to a previous game of mine, and upon loading the game (for the first time in a while) Steam did the 12.1.1 update. Now I cannot see the faces of my regenerated players.

    I've had a little go at re-loading the skin and in doing so have noticed that in the drop-down menu I can no longer select 'real and generated pictures', only 'none' and ' real pictures only'.

    Just a little confused guys, can anyone help? A many great thanks in advance.

    On FM11 this was normally fixed by just restarting the game, sounds obvious but it's worth a shot.

    - Can now edit the nation youth rating field.
    So what is this actually supposed to represent and how big of an effect does it have on a country's regen quality?

    Also, does it affect all regens of that nationality or just regens that appear in the nation itself?

    I'm surprised to see that many superstar-producing countries (for example, the Netherlands) have been given such low ratings.

    I'm still finding two things incredibly frustrating:

    * It's almost impossible to loan out most players, with lower-division clubs seemingly too reluctant to take a gamble on young loanees - and on the rare occasion I do have an offer, my youngsters will pretty often reject them (for no apparent reason - it would be good if we had some feedback on why).
    * Out-of-contract players consistently rejecting contract offers from apparently attractive clubs. Again, this happens for no apparent reason, and leads some high-quality international players to be out of football for many months or years at a time.

    * Out-of-contract players consistently rejecting contract offers from apparently attractive clubs. Again, this happens for no apparent reason, and leads some high-quality international players to be out of football for many months or years at a time.
    Also must add: Out-of-contract staff consistently rejecting contract offers from apparently attractive clubs AFTER the contract was signed. Big issue, as I see it.

    shame this didn't fix the Villa & Newcastle scout n coach problems or the fact it goes to tv view when your watching only commentary after making changes

    Is there a way to remove or hide the advice history on the staff profile?

    I have found three issues in my game.

    * There are way too many own goals. There has been one or more in four matches in a row now and I have noticed many before that as well. I haven't checked the statistics vs real life but surely there must be like 10-20% own goals in the Premier League season four.

    EDIT: I counted them all up to 13th of March. 45 own goals in total, 11 of them in my matches. There are 784 goals so far, so the rate of own goals is 5,7%. Is that right?

    * There's a change to the refereeing in the ME compared to what is shown on screen. Very often I see free kicks given where the guy having the ball is given a yellow card for holding back the guy behind him, and equally often the referee gives away a free kick for a foul that couldn't possibly have occured since the penalised player passed the ball away before the opponent came anywhere near him. Those occurences seem related, and even though I saw them once and again in 12.0.4 I see them much more often now... up to several times per match, I'd say.

    * The commentary is too often completely at odds with what is happening on screen. This has always been the case with shots of all kinds being hailed with superlatives when the 3d animation shows the exact opposite. Now, they consistently call clearances that are panicly "bopped" away with various body parts - often to the nearest opponent - "clears the ball to safety" or "puts it into row z - he takes no chances there", while they call clearances that are hoofed into orbit and lands on the other half "scrambles it away". And there are a -lot- of clearances! It may seem like the patch's tweak of morale may have had the side-effect that the players are a lot less cool when put under pressure and I think this harms my enjoyment of the game. I don't watch Extended anymore because most of what I see is this:

    Clearance-challenge-challenge-clearance-throw-challenge-challenge-clearance-corner-challenge-clearance-throw-challenge-clearance-cut.... ad infinitum... unless there's a goal then what I see is:

    fantastic pass-fantastic pass-fantastic pass-fantastic through ball-fantastic dibble-fantastic shot-goal...

    What I'm getting at is that it is too easy to see immediately what ends in a big chance so I tend to "skip" a lot using the fast forward slider. I think this has to do with me being used to the beautiful flow of superb-morale, motivated semi-god in-form football pre-patch, so the contrast to the rather mundane stuff I watch now is less entertaining even though the matches are more exciting.

    Own goals in real life are at circa 4%, so 5.7% is not game breaking. There is a slight bug relating to defensive turns / positioning at the near post on crosses which will be causing this variation.

    Would agree that some of the free kick awards look very dubious in graphical terms. Not sure if it is a bug, coded referee bias or just poor graphics though.

    Don't agree that the football is any better or worse.

    This is so frustrating. Had a couple of my 4.5/5 star coaches poached from underneath me (literally, I had no inbox warning) so then I go looking for other staff. Offer contracts, accepted, confirm, board cancels. I'm using roughly 16 out of 24 available so it's baffling me. I think "first team coaches" sign fine, but ones on just "coach" contract get cancelled for no reason.

    Whats the breakdown of your coaches available in the boardroom and the coaches you have? should it be something like

    Coaches 5 got 5
    Youth Coach 5 got 5
    First team Coach 5 got 2
    Goalkeeping coach 2 got 1
    Fitness Coach 2 got 2

    With that breakdown you would only be able to organise a First Team Coach, or a Goalkeeping coach, not a general coach.

    i must admit i like the changes to the scouting: that scouts tend not to join based upon manager/club rep. makes things more of a challenge.

    what i'm LESS keen on is the breakdown of allowed coaches. IRL surely i wouldn't have limits on 1st team coaches, coaches etc. Saints IRL have 7 physios! Palmeiras have 3 asst managers. i'd have thought that in the EPL board would be pretty lenient on how you want to set up your backroom.

    so, something i like, something i'm less keen on. *BUT* why weren't these changes explained to us? there's v.little in the patch changelist and not a great deal on this thread regarding the thinking behind the changes.....

    Where is this breakdown in the boardroom? I never knew there was a breakdown tbh. But, I have 13 coaches, 2 FT coaches, 1 GK coach, 2 fitness coaches.

    All I can see is max staff permitted - 25, current staff - 18.

    iIf you go to boardroom in bottom left i think it is it shows you what and how many coaches you should have and what board recommend you have

    If you go to the boardroom overview the bottom left corner of the screen gives you the overview.

    So you go "Club" - Boardroom - and look in the bottom left

    Ahh yes you're right. I've never noticed it before because FM seems to think this information is not needed and cuts it off when in windowed mode. When I restore the screen it's then visible (even though I can't see the bottom 3 options).

    But I am 5 coaches over the 8 advised (for "coaches") but under on the rest so I'll do a bit of re-shuffling. Is this a new feature then because presumably they would have cancelled more of my coaches before had it not been?

    Yeah not really a new feature but changed it to make it more realistic. As I like many used to just hire 10 generic coaches and it was easy to obtain amazing coaching ratings. Now you need to think a little and it's harder to obtain the amazing coaching stars.

    anyone else having trouble now with team talks? is this, as it is with the scouting, because your rep means you have to work hard and achieve to win people over???
