  1. Hi Sorry for the major delay in replying, i never got chance to start a new save, but have just decided to start on and having the same problem so i have attached my dxdiag, hopefully this will help DxDiag.txt
  2. Hi I have just loaded the game up for the first time in a while so after the 18.3.3 update upon load up it now says my estimated game speed is only half a star when last time i played i had 4 stars, what can be going on here hope someone can help. Thanks
  3. Hope someone can point in me in the right direction, just wanted to start a new long term save on fmt, the game updated to 18.3.3 but now on the load up screen my estimated game speed is only half a star!!!! when last time i loaded the game i was on 4 stars, what is the reason for this? Thanks
  4. Is there any way of playing the lower levels in fmt? was fancying starting a game with my local team in the northern counties east Thanks
  5. I don't mate, i just try and rotate my squad to keep everyone's fitness up. The wingers are the most important parts of the tactic and i try to get basically a left & right winger who is all flair & dribbling but maybe not so good on the work rate aspect but then have another of each that are up and down wingers that put a shift in and use these against better opposition and in tough away games. Also you CB's are important definitely need ball players here as they start most attacks off and can give silly passes away! Hope that helps a little
  6. Finally got round to starting a new long term save, this time with Coventry as i think they have scope for being a decent club in the Prem. Absolutely smashed league 2 and league 1 using this tactic, now mid way through the championship i am currently sitting top and even knocking the mighty man city out of the fa cup. Not blowing my own trumpet but you really need to give this tactic a go, i'm not sure there will be a better one out there that plays football like this does.
  7. Just had to share my new tactic, i haven't played football as good as this on any recent FM and i am the mighty Salford! I wanted lightening quick attacks after winning the ball back quickly which this has well and truly achieved. I will go into more details as people ask about it as it might not get much attention but would love to get some feedback. Just a little bit of advice.... Centre backs - Strong, tall, good heading and jumping are a must. AMR/AML - speed, speed, speed, Good finishing as well as they weigh in with plenty of goals. SS's - Don't worry about getting the ideal amc's as fast strikers work really well, but try and get strikers with decent dribbling. This is the first tactic on this years FM that i have made or tried others that i've downloaded that get good ratings from my strikers and fullback. I'm playing FM Touch. Like Watching Brazil Attack.fmf
  8. Been working on something a little different to the above tactic as i was getting disappointed with how the strikers and in particular the full backs were playing, which i found not just on my tactic but any other that i have downloaded and given a try. I know its easy on this fm to make a tactic using 3 strikers so deffo didn't want to go down that road and stuck to my principles with a 4-4-2/4-2-4. It is playing some of the best football i have seen in this fm so i will keep testing over this season and if all goes well i will make its own thread as i am sure it is going to deserve it!
  9. Wow great feedback, i have had days trying to improve the defensive aspect of my tactic but it always has a big impact on the attacking intent, i am like you just have to take a thrashing from one of the big teams every now and again on the chin! I would love someone to hopefully improve the defensive part of it as i have failed, but imo this years fm just doesn't allow great defending unless you have the best defenders available. I am currently playing a long term Salford save and back to back promotions up to the prem and now in my second year i sit 4th so got to be pleased with it.
  10. As you can see my finances aren't in the best shape and look at that huge wage budget
  11. I have had consecutive promotions to the Championship with Salford, and loving this save. I have basically had to rely on free transfers and loans all the way through as the club is always in debt due to the stadium capacity of about 5000! upon promotion to the championship the board gave me £1 million to spend which went on one striker so not sure how my season will go, i would be happy with mid-table for now.
  12. Well seems to work superb in the lower leagues! Never had a start to a new save like this one
  13. Just started a long term save with Salford after reading the post, and being a Man Utd fan thought it would be enjoyable. I have hopefully perfected a tactic in my Barnsley save which won me the champs league 3 times in a row! The Salford game has started very promising indeed.
  14. Glad your enjoying it, this fm does throw some strange results in but i guess it makes it more realistic, i went a few games where i thrashed man utd, chelsea, man city and liverpool then lost to crystal palace who were bottom of league without a win and they beat me 3-0!
