Uhh...Wait a second folks: maybe I'm a bit out of the loop but isn't the Xbox edition (PC Gamepass Version), at least for us long-time FMT players who have been playing on the PC, kinda like a dream coming true? 

Streamlined just the previous FMT editions, but now, AT LONG LAST with a working pre-game editor so all the real data mods can be used in FMT too.

Can you explain this further please? :eek:

Now you can finally modify stuff just like the "full fat" version of FM beside competition names or graphics.  

From being able to change "Zebre" to "Juventus" in italian serie A (yup, minor stuff like that, but still), but also having the possibility to apply lots of interesting addons, like new leagues, modifications to transfer markets and other dynamics etc.

Can you? I didn't think the Xbox edition had an editor, just the full version which is also on gamepass

Sigh, yeah, spoke too soon; infact, looks like we still don't have the editor for the xbox edition, beside all the hellish steps to actually have access to the game files because of the dumb microsoft permission system.

But yeah, maybe ONE DAY Sports Interactive will finally understand the importance of having the editor for the slimmed down version too and make it work, at least on the PC (yeah, cross-platform compatibility may get disabled because of console limitations and whatnot, but the important thing is letting the customer know of that limitation).

Well I finally got into the Xbox version on the iPad, and while it’s pretty similar to the Touch version, it’s nowhere near as good. 
The screen touch is patchy, often opening the team or player etc below the one you want. 
You see less data on screen, and the tactics screen in particular suffers for this. 
Despite having decent WiFi, I get frequent network connection issues. 
Won’t be able to play it when travelling either. 
 

In short, it’s a worse product, but for £132 per year not £20. 
 

So this is the end of a long history for me with SI, FM and this forum.  I’ll keep playing Touch 21 until the data gets too out of date, then that’s it. Such a shame that a fantastic product, the perfect level of detail and an interface that worked so well on tablets, has been abandoned.

Wouldn’t say it’s the end, But they really could’ve communicated it all a lot better, with regards to how to set it up and play. Plus it’s not very stable think a beta of game pass Xbox version would have been a lot better, as teething problems could’ve been sorted for full release.

So on FM22 Xbox on PC you cannot: 
- load tactics into the game
- apply filters into the game
- load more than 10 leagues
- use customization and fixes
It also keeps crashing and moving way way more slower than FM21 Touch... Wonder if 30 seasons is still a limit?
And yet they keep saying it is going to be the same experience... Embarrassing SI, but I only blame myself for caving and buying the @#$%.

Yes, 30 seasons limit now also applies on the PC-version.

People always saying fifa buying each year is a stupid thing to do, because the improvements of last years edition is barely there.. But this years FM version is almost the same as the 21 version right? No more seasons to play, no more leagues to select just 10. I dont know why i should by this years version. I've played it on gamepass, because i still had 2 weeks left, but i think im gonna let this year past, and stick it with FM21....

I finally managed to get the game running on the I pad.. few things immediately come to mind. Yes you can enable the touch control, but they are a pain in the a..

It is difficult to do normal things, for example moving a young player from development to the first squad, after a day I am still trying to find the window to do that

dragging players on the pitch when making a sub, if a player is near the touch controls good luck with that and many times it selects the players you don't want.

adjusting the camera's zoom..it just won't let me do it 

what I don't understand is that there are few functions that still work as touch control, was it really so damned difficult and expensive to make it all touch screen also for the xbox edition? the over all experience is nowhere near as good and smooth as it was with fm21 touch, everything takes so long to figure out and I didn't even try yet to go into the transfer market... I insist..was it really so hard to make it all touch screen ? Was it really so hard to give the tablet players the option of simply buying an update from fmt21 so they could at least have an option and make money anyway? 

I am not a businessman, but by providing the update option SI would have still sold the copies for the ones willing to buy the newest version with the changes and yet , not lose customers willing to accept not being able to buy the new one , but still ok with paying for an update of the 2021's version..why they haven't done it's beyond me.

@Desmond RichardsonHow do you get the game to speed up a bit, it’s very much not touch friendly at the moment keeps freezing 

Are you still struggling speed wise? There is some information in regards to connection which may help in this instance.

Rob, thanks for your message. Some of your feedback would be really helpful for the team. If you have more UI related feedback could you please submit it in the Official UI feedback thread?

For moving a player into the First Team Squad - navigate to a Player Profile Page then select the Actions Menu (either with touch or using a controller) then selecting squad, move to senior squad.

Struggle? I am struggling with the fact that still no tactics and other things can be added to the Xbox version on PC. Who thought up something like that please!

Among other things, this is what the game lives on

Wonder if the difficult decision to not have FMT is still seen as a positive decision at SI Towers. I was gifted FM22 for my birthday but played until the start of a first season. Found myself downloading FM12, Out of the Park Baseball and had a look at older FMTs. 

 

Reverted back to FMT21. Shame!

I'm fine staying with FMT21 for android .

In fact i bought FMT21 for android and PC, so that i could create a file with more than 3 nations.

Currently playing a save in my android tablet with 8 nations, working without issues.

So, despite the lack of transfers uptades, i think that i can keep playing FMT21 for many years. And theres also the option to use "fake players names" when in 2 or 3 years i'm bored with playing with all the sames players names.

Hi Keyzer,

Please could you explain a bit more about this?

How exactly have you managed to get 8 nations onto a Touch android tablet save? (I can DM if it's easier)

I'm happy sticking with FMT21 on tablet, but I'd very much like to do something similar with more nations if possible.

Thanks

I’m still playing FMT21 on iPad. Having tried the switch and Xbox versions. It really shown me just how brilliant the tablet version was, in terms of user face for one and all round design. Yes FMXbox is a thing for cloud save. But it’s really not great to play when you’ve got dodgy internet. I hope FM reconsider the plans and brings it back or maybe just a subscription type game with new squads not necessarily features.
