But before the patch I could see the player's current in-match rating underneath the shirts on my PC monitor, but since the patch I can't see any.
I assume it's got something to do with the width of the monitor? They must have reduced the space for the ratings now, so smaller monitors can't display them now.
All in all, so far, so good with this patch. One "minor" gripe. Started a fresh save file with Portsmouth in administration. two things:
1) Is starting to annoy me receiving agent offers for players when I'm still under a transfer embargo. I can't sign anybody, at any price, so why do I still get offers?
2) Every 4 weeks it seems, I'm getting the "restructuring debts" news, and even a new CVA. I understand FM levels out finances, but still...I need a tycoon quickly!
and it didn't help with my game freezing up almost every time i hit continue...
I don't use any custom skins, but do have player pictures, logos and kits..... Any suggestions?

So again what's up with French teams having no money?
delete mistake on my part
I have just had a massive problem occur on my first game on the new patch. I have two players loaned out at other clubs who are underachieving or at least doing badly. I am playing as Wolfsburg and the players are Tuncay at Bolton and Ja-Cheol at Augsburg. They have just come to me complaining about the club underachieving. Before the patch came out they obviously would've gone to their current clubs rather than to me about this. I don't want relationships with my players or their future interest in them staying with me after loan periods to be destroyed due to this. Has anyone else reported this? Is it in the process of being fixed? Do you need screenshots? If you do need them how do I take them and post them on here?
David de gea is traveling on the day of the community shield, he played IN the real community shield
Also just had Diego come to me with the same complaint when he is on loan at Atletico Madrid and has nothing to do with my team currently
Big issue for MLS:
Prior to the patch, the game would recognize when you no longer had any Designated Player slots available to offer players. Players/agents wouldn't ask for DP contracts if you weren't able to offer them one. Post-12.2, however, I've looked at two players on my team to enter contract negotiations with (to extend their current deals.) Despite already having 3 Designated Players on my squad, each player is asking for a DP contract (which I'm apparently able to offer- I'll do a quick test to see what happens.) One player is "waiting to see what I offer" and, when I select the first wage available to offer him, it reads -$83 per year. Yes, he'd be paying ME to play!
Update: received a news item stating that I couldn't renew the contract due to DP limits. Noticed a handful of players asking for DP contracts if I approach them to extend their contracts...and quite a few others that are suddenly asking for bonuses to be included in their contracts, which had never happened before the patch (now in 2018.)
Please, please let there be a way to remove this patch, or else my game is ruined!!!

One more question I forgot earlier.... Have other players noticed their news feeds having insane amounts of useless information? It's almost like checking my old hotmail account when I saw spam everywhere. I would estimate that I received around 20-30 new messages each time I click "continue" and very few have anything to do with me. I've reduced the settings to the minimum possible including turning off international team news and any competition that I am not in but am still receiving crazy amounts.
might be against the mold here but can i ask for a non steam version to be available next year... ive had nothing but problems from this years version.. put aside the problems with the last patch but this patch i was playing offline, noticed the new patch.. quit game and went online... downloaded patch.. waited.. went offline.. couldnt start game.. restarted machine.. chose to go online.. started trying to download steam.. stopped right away.. said steam was unavailable, after restarting numerous times it then started the download for footy manager again.. so frustrating
im now downloading for the second time.. unknown to wether this one will work
wish we could register to validate our copy then download the patches individually... far less problems this way
i hate that, transfer deadline day spam, where some team you have never heard of signs some player you have never heard of.
Don't know if this is right section to post, but...
Is it me or since 12.2 something happend with scouts reports??? I mean-there's none. Player appear to be scouted-but no report is present. Just blank page saying that "you need to ask your stuff to scout etc." ,wich has been done and stars are there! Bug? Or am i missing something?
Thanks for answer.
There is a space before the "M" in Melbourne Heart FC which means their name always appears shifted to the left one space. It's quite annoying once you see it. Easily sorted in the Editor. Sadly, I started my game before I knew of this.
I am finding the whole patch to be weird tbh. I was just fired from Wolfsburg for being in mid table at the end of October with no warnings. We've played not even half a season and tbh the team usually finishes mid table IRL and the objective was only Europa League. We had a slow start losing 4 of the first 5 games (other game was a win) but since then have been awesome beating the likes of Werder and Hamburg and hadn't lost in ages. Then we slipped up vs Dortmund away only going down 1-0 (not bad considering how awesome their squad is on FM compared to mine) and was fired. This type of thing never used to happen before the update, especially considering I had my reputation as former German international, which always seems to guarentee time to turn things around if you have a bit of a slow start.
The issue is a big one since we (people that manage a Greek Superleague team) cannot continue a previously saved game, we have to start a new game! The problem is that the new patch doesn't treat EU nations as EU for the Greek Superleague. Does SI know something about EU kicking out Greece from EU?
Anyway, I personally don't want to just start a new game, and I am sure a lot of Greeks just want to continue playing their old saved games! Is there any possibility to have the option to move back to the 12.1.1 patch or re-release it? A lot of us we were happy with just that...
Scouting cost is completely out of wack in BSP england after the patch. I went from 25K per year to 135K per year without changing any scouting assignments from previous season. The patch got installed with 1/3 of the season to go and it is costing me 36K per month. It's my main expenditure right now.
Two scouts assigned to roam UK&Ireland with Maidenhead in BSP
Have some problems I found in the k-league regarding transfers.
After looking at Jeju United they are still missing the Australian centerback Adrian Madaschi.
On a side note Junior Santos who was one of the top goal scorers on Jeju and in the k-league last season is still just as horrible as in fm 2011, I was hoping this would have been fixed in 2012 but just seems to be ignored....
Hoping some one can can at least take a look at this would make the game that much better!
i just left my game as i was about to shut down my computer and saw that there's a 974.8kb update. any idea what its about?
I actually feel some tranfers are a little unrealistic after a couple of seasons, for example Lens spending 10 million euros on one player.
BTW, I've just been promoted with Tours to Ligue 1 in 2015 without buying a single player (only free transfers)!
new update has made match engine speed go really slow (even on highest speed). Any advice??
Any update regarding the problem with the Greek League?
What exactly has this patch changed?....
Yes, I've read the 'change list' thing but to be honest, I've played for just over two hours under the new patch and apart from my BSN scout costing me 4 times what he used to cost me I can't see any difference what so ever (yet). The transfer market still sucks and no-one buys any players off you, I've just had 6 first team players go out for very long periods before the season even started, freekicks, throw-ins, crosses and control of the ball near the touchline are all still crap and fullbacks still wonder out of position........ Was it really worth the long wait?
Is there any way of going back to the previous patch? At least then I wont end up bankrupt through over paying for scouting.
I assume there is no way to take the update without the patch right?
I can't open the editor any more it goes green on start up and you can see a picture of someone holding a ball in the background but its all grren like grass and I can't load any thing up this has happen since stream update today.
FTP details here - http://community.sigames.com/showthr...P-Instructions
Also make sure you're not running any custom graphics/skins to make certain it's not those causing it. Then make sure you're running the latest graphics card drivers for your graphics card. Let me know if any of this helps.
I have downloaded the patch, but things like flags, player images, the kits on the tactics page and even players that don't have pictures the grey silhouette aren't appearing.
Any help would be grateful!
Then make sure that when the game loads up, in your in-game preferences that 'use skin cache' is ticked under display and sounds.
I expected to be ignored, or get a patronizing request to upload a save game they won't look at! Last 5 years have made me cynical, like posting two years ago about Man Utd picking a reserve team to play in the champions league semi, and still doing it now! AI managers are shot to bits.
Like i say i do agree with you guys its no secret the AI needs a massive revamp we'll just have to see what fm13 brings, but if im honest i dont think its something SI ignore
No acknowledgement or changes in the last 5 years? Have you guys been in a coma or something? When you say things like that it instantly gives the impression your just throwing the toys out the pram. There have been big changes in the last 5 years in the ME and the entire game and SI have acknowledged on several occasions that the ME has certain weaknesses, which is why they are replacing it. If your not aware of that despite being a member on here for 9 years then you will never notice when they make an announcement on it.
I can bet almost 100% you guys will buy next years version no matter what you say in this thread.
So-nobody have problem with scout reports? Is it bug or not?
Some suggestions? Please?
Wally, I know what your saying, Jon is right though, we do hear "being looked at for the next version" every year, and new game arrives and its still a complete pickle (sound like me sadly departed Grandma, lol). All the moral tweeks just make the problem worse. Game code on New patch seems to making no allowance for a new appointment, so new manager takes over and straight away you get rubbish news reports he is on the verge of the sack, at a club expected to struggle. Forget PA/CA changes for players, as unless you sign them, they spend there career roting in the reserves, Jack Wilshire for last 3 FM's for example, whilst the AI continues to play 38 Rosicky!
Milnerpoint, we are raising a valid point that you can't be bothered to read! We know the ME is changed every year, we aren't arguing that, we are talking about the AI of the Managers and clubs. No chucking toys out, so before flaming, read what has been written please!
Yeah Milner, read ;)
Edgar, it ended up in here as the sackings and insecure status of new manager's seems to be worse since the patch was released. Like I said above, that Milnerpoint also missed, I will be buying FM13 in the hope it has been given a massive overhaul, but if it hasn't it will be my last FM game.
Just downloaded the patch,no problems at all,but checking out my favorite club AFC Bournemouth,no Russian bussinessman even as a director,Maxim Demin,oh well will have to get the info and put him in myself and change captain to the right one
I'm Having a few issues since the patch...
Firstly I'm finding the game hangs alot when coming out of processing to the news screen. I have a very high spec machine not lacking in CPU, graphics or RAM and the game ran all leagues like a dream before the patch.
The second issue i'm having is some weird player happiness issues. Take the below example:
Sunday he loves the club, Tuesday he wants out!
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
I don't get none. Player appeared to be scouted but no scout report is there. It ether saying it's in process of scouting and shortly will be presented or that i need to send somebody to scout (and i've already done it and player got his stars-but no report is there..) ?!
I´m planning to start a very long term game. But I´m wondering if I should wait for a hotfix or not... What do you think?
I have the same problem with scouting as Dinamo_K - no reports are visible, it just says that I need to request a member of scouting staff to compile a report, even though I just scouted the player and he has the recommended stars next to his name. That's the case for any player in the game no matter what country/league/club they're from (coach reports are working for my players) - I'm playing ManU, first season with over 40 leagues playable.
i see what people mean about injurys too.. after starting a new game i have played 3 matches.. and had 4 injurys.. the opposition has had the same amount too... way to frequent imo

I only downloaded FM2012 yesterday via Steam with the new patch. I played the demo and I noticed plenty of bugs which is why I waited.
But I have notice something and I know it didn't occur in FM2011, but it has been picked up on this thread: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...-player-search
As you can see, I explained the problem I had with this 'player search' issue and I do hope it is a bug and something that can be remedied. To save ppl having to open the posted link, this is what I explained. If anyone can explain this, thanks in advance:
I (first) noticed this issue on my first search for a player: I couldn't remember how to spell his name but I obviously I knew his position (right back), and I knew he was French and under 21, so I naturally performed the search with these criteria added and only around 20 French under 21 right backs were shown, none of which were the player in question. On various incarnations of FM I would see thousands of players under this criteria. So where was this player, whom I easily located and bought on FM2011, disappeared to?
I eventually managed to spell his name correctly and performed a search in the text box at the top right of the FM2012 screen, and there he was. So how can a player exist only if you know his name?
I have been reading the thread to attempt to understand whether this is something that has been purposely implemented in FM2012, or whether it is a flaw. If the reason is because of player knowledge levels, this still doesn't make any sense when I have a French scout with 100% knowledge of French players.
And if I perform a search for Brazilian right backs, for example, I got a list of over hundred, yet I have no scout with knowledge of Brazilian players.
When I chose my league selections at the beginning of the game, I always choose a huge database with many global leagues giving me a maximum limit of 75,000 players. Yet if I perform a generic player search without any criteria, it lists around 25,000 player. Where are the other 50,000 players that should be on my database??
I always rated the players search, and transfer scouting system of FM as it's best feature. I could spend hours manually sifting through players looking for the next big unknown star. Yet now, that part of the game has been taken away in FM2012.
I do hope this is just a error that can hopeful be repaired/patched, because it surely has diminished my enjoyment before I have even kicked a ball?
The conlusion: SI crew are eather incompetent (since regulary member solve the problem easily) or lazy (dont bother).
He must be too busy counting his mountain of gold......
The player search functions is merely an overview of the players your scouting network are aware of & that is why you are not seeing every single player, the key phrase that you'll see on the player search page is 'x players found in your scouting and knowledge range'.
IIRC it's more or less followed the current model since FM09 & has over time been refined to be linked more tightly with your scouting tools, just send folk out to scour the globe & watch the player count rise.
I've just downloaded the patch and everything seemed to work out well 'til I noticed that the "watch" in the left hand corner had disappeared. Have anyone else got this problem? Please, anyone, help me out because I am suicidal at the bloody moment!
I have had 2 issues with allocation money not being received in the MLS since the patch. The first happened when I won the league and was supposed to be awarded $150,000 for qualifying for the NACL. As you can see below this somehow brought my total allocation up to $0. That just doesn't add up. The second issue was after selling a player. Although I supposedly received an allocation amount of $230,000 for the transfer my allocation totals stayed at their current value. While neither of these are massive values they are certainly significant for the MLS and I'm now afraid to sell any other players.
I have screenshots of each however they only show what I explained. Let me know if there is something else that I can provide to help.
So-maybe somebody from SI team will be kind enough to treat problem with no players reports available???!!! It's really annoying not to be able to use this important (in my view) feature.
my first game both my strikers got injured (beattie & evans)
evans out for 4-5 weeks
second game hoskins (in for evans) gets injured out for 2-3 weeks
3rd game Baxter (in for hoskins) injured
Are you using a third party skin? If you are then it might not be compatible with 12.2.
I'm not seeing the issue you've described while using the default dark skin.
If not, is there any chance you have a save game from before either of these events occur?
Edit: Actually, (it didn't sound like it, but) are you managing one of the Canadian teams by any chance? If you were, this would explain why you didn't get any allocation funds for winning MLS Cup.

Just started a new game on the new patch, everything seems to be running ok. The only gripe i have is if a new patch or a hot fix is brought out in the next few days going off the problems people are having i will no longer have the german national side (real players) and will have to start the whole game again and delete the inc files... would i be right in saying this??
It seems like Steam wont download the new patch. It says “Download starting…” but nothing happens. It has been that way since yesterday. When I try to run FM2012 I get the message “The Steam servers are currently too busy to handle your request. Please try again in a few minutes”.
Any ideas what’s wrong. Really frustrating, and have never had this problem before…
I have saved games before both events. The first event (winning the league and qualifying for NACL) has a save game just before the championship match and so will require winning the match. The other save game is about 15 days before the transfer goes through however the league is in offseason at this point so not much happens between. Where and how would you like me to upload these save games?
EDIT: Nope, not playing as a Canadian team. I'm playing as the Red Bulls. I just had a coach headhunted away with better wage promises and, according to the alert, should have had 2/3 of that fee go towards allocation as well. Once again, though, the allocation budget stayed steady at 350,000 (where it has been since the season ended).

Yes you've hit nail on the head why did't we think of this are you listening BrockFanboys will allways use sarcasm when they dont have any rational arguments left.He must be too busy counting his mountain of gold......
I did not miss anything. I m fully aware the magnitude of the problem, but this is the fix which SI could easy implement while they are making new ME. This fix is better then the situation as it is right now. The fact that AM doesnt track back has been well knowed for 4-5 years. Humane managers can solve this with specific man marking, while the AI cant. So the biggest problem is for AI, which this fix solve with easy. They could do many things to fix this problem without cheanging the ME, but they didnt...and that is the fact.Well done on missing the point of the thread, its still only a temporary solution (albeit a good one) , as it doesn't fix the lack of tracking back from the AM bands for the AI, or the lack of balance in the MCs, both of which can only be fixed via the ME being overhauled.
Thanks Barside, I appreciate the reply. I am curious that I didn't seem to notice this in either FM09 or FM11 (didn't play 2010). Obviously I thought it was typically ironic that out of all the players I search for and that my Scouts were aware of, the first player I searched for (like I said, a French under 21 international) wasn't displayed even though I had a French scout with 100% scouting knowledge of French players. Yet I had a wide knowledge of Brazilian players yet I have no Brazilian scout.
Like I said, on FM2011 I used to sift through thousands of under 18 players in various positions yet I am lucky if I see over a 20 youngsters to scout in a specific position now. It does seem this feature has diminished the ability to discover a raw, unknown talent.
I currently managing Liverpool, and I couldn't imagine the current LFC manager asking his scouts for a list of French right backs and him only receiving a list of 20 odd players to scout. In comparison to FM2011, it seems this has noticeably and significantly changed.
I am a fan of the game but there should be a hotfix tbh. Apart from the bugs mentioned in this thread researchers from the Arsenal and Chelsea data have accepted they made vital errors. With Arsenal the injury to Thomas Vermaelen should not have been included as he was fit at the start of season which was acknowledged and also a mistake from one of the Chelsea researchers who wrongly set a retirement for Sam Hutchinson and therefore forgot to remove this from the game and he is not included unfortunately.
