How do I...

1)

How do I get my team to score more goals? 

Stats say I create a lot of chances. But I dont convert enough, says DataHub.

My coaches only have 3.5 stars for the ‘Attacking Finishing’ section, is that why?

What are the training blocks to improve this please, anything else apart from Chance Conversion?

Am I too reliant on the Mezzala?

2) 

Conceding goals. Anyone have any ideas please on how to tweak the formation/instructions so when I go one or two goals up I can hold onto the lead without conceding?

Training won't help you score goals short term.

Post this in the tactic section you're more likely to get more replies.

My short answer would be to look at the quality of chances you're creating and see if you can improve that

How do I turn off advice from my assistant manager during matches? Every single game I'm advised to 'play for set pieces' which I duly click 'Always Ignore', only to be hounded by it the very next game as well as countless useless advice.

Is there a way to force the game which set of games get featured after progressing? There was a tournament going on (either Olympics or Copa America) where three of my starters were involved and their success was integral to my planning (It would have been bad to play ManCity in the Supercup without goalkeepers or my two best scorers). But instead of showing me those results that I wanted, all I got were the results of the very early stages of European qualifiers that are completely useless to me.

Who can I contact within Football Manager regarding lack of information and not sorting out a bug in the game.  Frustrated member.

Well, reporting it in the bugs section is the best way. If you want to contact SI directly, there is a "contact us" button at the bottom of every page here on the forums.

Yes, if you go into the preferences and find "Screen flow" you can set up each tournament that will show up for you and at what point.

Tried reporting in the bugs section and not happy with the lack of information.  Was really trying to see if they have a customer service or pr type of thing.  Frustrated is putting it mildly.

It is frustrating, but at a certain point there just isn't any more information that can be provided. I understand its nice to feel there is an acknowledgement, which there has been previously in your thread, but in the background those threads get assigned different statuses for QA and developers to work through. 

Once an issue is being looked into by the relevant individuals, with no solution the CCE team will be looking at fresh issues and ensuring they get that same allocation and focus with QA and devs. It's not perfect, but it is definitely better than in previous years. While its not always the most satisfying, if after the initial exchange where its confirmed its being looked into there are no more details its a very safe rule to apply that it is being investigated further, it is being looked at but there simply isn't more information to provide yet.

The frustrating part is no information from the point I sent in the bandicam footage which I know they received.  Ultimately they have customers and it not great to make those customers feel they are being treated with contempt especially after months from reporting the issue not a single thing about the issue.  I don't know even if this bug has been looked at or still sitting in a queue.  In the meantime I can't continue the save.

The bandicam footage has been included in the thread which is available to QA/Devs working on that issue. Threads can have hidden posts/visible only to users with certain permissions. 

Ultimately there isn't going to be a reliable way through which prior to patch releases bug fixes can be guaranteed. The nature of games is once you get it in the vast number of players hands they might find the issue happens another way. 

Bugs will have to be prioritised some way, and I imagine that is very much subject to change (for example a showstopper, legitimate gamebreaking bug that crashes the game would be a high priority to fix - unless its perhaps incredibly obscure) so there won't be the information people perhaps want provided because it could be true at the time and a couple days later be a vastly different situation.

There aren't any more planned updates for this version of FM though. While it's never going to be good to hear the impact its had on your save, hopefully that kind of information leaves you in an informed enough position to decide if you want to perhaps start another save.

So from your response I take it that FM shouldn't consider those who pay for the game as customer's cause I am at a loss with your comments

If that's your takeaway then I apologise for the misunderstanding. My aim is to just share some of the knowledge I have as prior experiences allow me to offer an informed insight. 

You've done everything bang on in that thread, taken it from the point the OP had made which wasn't especially clear to the under review stage its now at with the recording and posts you provided. That's solely on you, without your contributions that issue would've been left for QA to try and reproduce internally without anywhere near as good an understanding. That is something that is hugely appreciated by SI and the kind of thing we as moderators will always encourage any poster to do with an issue they experience.

The set-up is to effectively and efficiently get issues categorised correctly, with the right team within SI and get them being worked on. On one hand I absolutely can see the point in that it's a positive feeling to get some further feedback after that point, but if its still being worked on then there isn't much to really share. 

It just isn't a straight forward process and its far more disingenuous to promise it will be fixed in the next update or at XYZ point blindly and then fail to deliver on that because of something unforeseen or unexpected arising.

How do I amend my managers attributes once Ive begun a game?

I gave him too high a score in Motivating and now every team talk I give my players respond like disciples and Im the second coming or something.

Is it possible without having to start a brand new game again?

Outside of the editor I don't believe it is possible.

I came across a screen that showed me future installments i still needed to pay on transfers.  It named the players and the date these needed paying.  Now I can't find it. Any clues?

Was it the one below? This is found by going to Transfers and then Clauses:

How to I make those neat 2D videos of gameplay/goals that some fellow players are posting in these forums? Is there a special program for that?

I've used ScreenToGIF and then uploaded to imgur, but I know others are using OBS or other capture programs. Both of those are free, so I'd suggest try both and see which fits you best. There are probably a lot of programs you can pay for as well, but not sure that's worth it to create some small FM clips...

I use ShareX which is free as well and you can do a lot with that

How do I take over confirmation of transfers?

I have all transfer options in my control, yet my Loan Manager is reporting that the club is finalising the transfers without letting me confirm whether I'm happy for them to go through?

Staff - Responsibilities - Transfers

Simple question, but I can't find it... how do I change the scouting recommendation display from A-, B, C to numbers (90, 80, etc)?

You can’t unless maybe with a custom skin

How Do I get my striker to do more 'dink' finishes?

Is this to do with the trait 'Likes to Lob Keeper' or is that something different?

He dinks occasionally at the moment and he's very effective at it so Id like him to do it more.

He has finishing 15, composure 14, flair 17, technique 13, decisions 12

Thanks.

How do i set the polaying time promise of my goal keeper to squad player or regular starter? Someone mentioned that's possible and they can definetely request important player, but apart from that i can't see an option.

Go to your player, then Overview > Happiness. Next to their "Agreed Playing Time" is a Change button.

How to ask board for a Reserve/B Team? I know where the option should be in the game... But what are the requirements to get that option available? Could I get that option if I'm playing with updated database where I have activated all the tiers in my league system (no relegation places in the last league)?

You can set the formation in the development section I think from one of the drop down options. I don't recall which unfortunately.

Thanks, but I can't find it anywhere on dev centre. Looked through responsibilities but can't see it there either..

How do I watch more than one game a day 

You can't watch live two games when they are held at the same time. You can rewatch the other game later, though, if you want to.

This is from the Overview page for my Under 18's. The same is true for the AC II squad and St Andra/WAC squad.

I have been playing FM for quite a while now but for the life of me I can work how to register my youth players in the Icelandic league under 19s league. It is causing problems as you youth players are playing no football. If I click on the UNA label I see the player attributes page.  I searched the forum and came up with nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am close to scraping this save due to this issue/my stupidity.

For reference for anyone else, I had to send the players back to the first team and then send them back to the under 19s, what helps was the hover information. There wasn't a loan end in the contract sections so who knows.

Strange. Mine doesn't look like that! Do I need to set certain  reaponsibilties beforehand to select that perhaps.

How do i not make the financial mistake of trying to bind my wonderkid star player to the club by offering him a new contract? He is happy here, he would love to go to a bigger club though. He is only silightly interested in negotiating a new deal. I don't need him, i have two young players that are slightly less good, but still good enough to play at the level i am at and improve. I don't need the 120-140m i wióuld get for that 20 year old and i don't have players i would sign with that money. But my man would want  ~10 million to take a new contract, which i have, and then i would still not have a guarantee to keep him long term. But, i really want to keep him.

Usually the option to postpone a game comes via new items. I don't know for sure that it is always offered though, I've usually seen it more in lower leagues when you have a large number of internationals, rather than at the level you're playing at. Maybe someone else knows a bit more on this one.

Hi guys. I'm playing with Real Sociedad in the Spanish league. Every matchday, with every match starting at a different hour, takes a heavy toll in my laptop... it looks like a rocket before taking off. Does anybody know if there's a way to change the matches' starting time? Maybe making it to be similar to the Premier League, with more matches at the same hour.
