  1. I believe the team has to have kits for those years in the Data Editor. I'm guessing you'd have to add them in the Editor and start a new game.
  2. No problem. I've thought of doing the same thing before, just never tried.
  3. Did you check the "updates" folder inside the "data" folder? You might have to replace the graphics.fmf in there too. Just a guess.
  4. My Match Engine experience: 1) Defenders finally block crosses. It feels like it happens 99% of the time, which should be turned down slightly, but way better than before. Every cross attempt ends up as corner. 2) Defenders close down more, especially when multiple defenders on the ball. Great! 3) Free kicks are WAY less accurate. Haven't seen one close. Halfway between last update and this one might be good. 4) Corners are way less accurate, but not bad. Maybe should be turned up slightly. 5) A small thing which probably is not update related, but when a corner is sent in and deflected back out to the same corner, the corner-taker lets it go out for a throw rather than play it. Kind of frustrating. Just a few things I've noticed so far, and this is just my experience. Love the update.
  5. It seems like a majority of the goals scored in the game deflect off the keeper. I'd guess that a huge majority of goals scored in real life are ones the keeper can't touch, and the ones they DO touch usually get deflected OUT. In game, balls will come at a tight angle possibly going wide and the keeper deflects them IN. Is this a problem for anyone else? I must say, I've only played lower leagues, but it still seems to happen way too often.
  6. tieio, have you experienced any of these players regressing if you don't continue playing them in the new position? In previous FMs, if I stopped training the new position, they'd revert back to their original ability.
  7. tieio, this is the first I've heard of this in all my years, although I've never tried FMC mode until now. I figured new position training was absent from FMC. So, to be clear, if a guy plays enough games at an awkward position, he could become competent or accomplished? Two questions: One, do players revert back if they stop playing the "new" position? Two, knowing how long it took to retrain in full-mode, how many games on average are we talking?
  8. This is my first go at Classic mode, and I am having the same problem defending corners. My asst talks about match prep as well, but there's no way I know of to change the focus. In my experience, the match prep (in full mode) does not have much effect anyway. I'd give my thoughts on what instructions to use, but not sure my guys have been good enough for me to do so.
  9. Some nations will have work permit problems, sure. Like I said, I usually only do this when I'm in a lower league, especially when my club cannot scout outside the UK. There is some risk involved, but I've found it to be worthwhile. I also look through the released players from nations sometimes, but I'll warn you that it is tedious. Also, I've looked through non-EU clubs and looked for players that might have an EU 2nd nationality, and that is usually in South America or Africa. Again, it is very tedious and boring, so probably not for everyone.
  10. Depends on what level I am playing. If my club is lower in England, I will search national teams (including youth teams) for players not under contract. Just quick flick through nations in Europe. I've found some gems that way.
  11. Hilarious. Mine are... Defenders not closing down. Pinpoint crosses regardless of defender or crossing ability. Atrocious AI in negotiating transfers.
  12. This explains my guy's success, because he definitely has nothing more than size and strength.
  13. I have a central defender that from the time I approached him on a free, my staff has always told me he is "not needed" and/or "not good enough", and the best rating he has got from ANY staff is 1.5 stars. He's always been my 3rd or 4th option at DC, yet here are his stats: 1st season - 7.47 avg in 17 apps 2nd season - 7.51 avg in 30 apps 3rd season - 7.26 avg in 38 apps After his 1st season, we were in a higher league. The most surprising thing was when he won the Supporters Player of the Year. The staff still say to get rid of him in almost every meeting. Do you have a guy like this?
  14. I purchased 2013 as soon as it came out, but it took me forever to fully get over my FM2012 save (months, maybe?) and get into this one. My current 2013 game is in year 2024 and going... until FM2014. Never skipped one, and can't imagine I ever will!
  15. That must have been a miraculous 7 games for McClaren. For what its worth, you'd have my vote, neo-bahamut.
