  1. Oh they had it last year? Of course the one year I skip...
  2. Since 2012 at the start of every single match I have to pause the simulation, and then command + click on every player on the pitch. I don't just want to know who is on/around the ball, I want to be able to quickly see where everyone is on the pitch at all times. But what if I accidentally click randomly on the screen? I have to do the whole song and dance over again. Please, please add this as a simple checkbox so we can see names hovering over players on the pitch at all times. I'm desperate for this and hope I'm not the only one. I would even pay for this feature. Please!
  3. Yes, I checked to make sure the images were there. I don't see anything obviously different about that directory vs. directories for other nations that seem to be working normally. Baffled by this.
  4. I added custom graphics to FM16 using the logo pack I've used for every FM since 13 -- by just copying the images to the 'graphics' folder. The custom logos show for all clubs fine, except for the English Premier League ones. Has anyone else seen this? I can't figure it out. The club ID's for EPL teams haven't changed, so the images should be loading correctly. I should note that the smaller logos work fine even for EPL logos -- it's only the larger ones that I can't seem to get working.

  6. I have this problem in general too, especially when playing away. I use a more defensive formation (a 4-5-1 wide), but I also struggle because top teams usually press heavily and my players seem to be pretty nervous -- not being able to pass at all coherently. My defense is solid and I usually lose 0-1 or thereabouts, but I can't figure out a good way to mount a serious attack. My general strategy dealing with heavy, high pressing is to increase tempo to move the ball around more and wear out the opposition, waiting for the heavy press to leave one of their defenders out of position. But higher tempo seems to exacerbate our bad-passing problems.
  7. So that is why we have things like 'become unsackable' and the in-game editor?
  8. How about the ability to tune the frequency? I feel unable to make tactical substitutions because I am either forced to play whack-a-mole with knocked players or am too worried about future injuries to use up my subs. From the football I watch on TV it looks like this is usually not the case for real-life managers.
  9. Is there a way to reduce the frequency of in-match "knocks"? (I mean a setting, not doing all of the usual preventive things like not playing tired players, etc.) I personally do not enjoy having my substitutions dictated all the time by who has "taken a knock", but others may like it, so maybe it would be nice to allow players to tweak it. Frequency aside, I think the current "knock" system is unrealistic and an example of a game feature which actually makes things more difficult for us armchair managers than they are for our real-life counterparts. A player's overall health is represented as an integer between 0 and 100, much like you might find in an arcade fighting game. The problem is that this single metric is used to represent both "energy level" (how tired a player is) and "injury severity", with severely injured players being at the 25%-or-lower mark (or thereabouts). A player may become injured in-match, at which point his number drops significantly -- but over time it may either increase or decrease, without any indication to the manager which direction is more likely. In real life, a player can communicate to his manager how he is feeling either directly or by interacting with the physio, who usually can give the manager some direction regarding whether the player should continue. Sometimes this sort of thing is simulated in the game with "hard" injuries, where the red-cross icon appears over the player's head (and occasionally we are required to sub because the player cannot continue) -- but these are much more rare than the all-too-frequent "knock".
  10. Why buy something without any information about it at all or even a single screenshot?
  11. I want to create a new 'Iberian League' -- imagine that La Liga and the Portuguese league decide to merge and form one league, where the second-tier leagues in both nations feed into the main one (but still 20 teams or so). Is this even possible? It seems that a league can either be a 'domestic cup' associated with a particular nation, or a club championship associated with a continent (but not a limited list of countries).
  12. An option to always show all players' names on the pitch in the match engine (instead of just the player with the ball or those immediately around it)? I really hate having to command-click on each individual player in my first match after starting the game up each time. And if I accidentally click on an area of the screen which doesn't contain a button...then I have to do this all over again. Maybe it's just me but when I'm watching a match I like to know immediately where everyone is, not just who's on the ball at the moment.
  13. I'm trying switching to a 4-1-4-1 (from a 4-2-3-1) in my FCP save and the problem I'm currently having is that most of my wing players aren't familiar with the ML/MR slots. Are you finding this to be a problem, particularly on the right? I don't think Walcott is familiar there and his attributes don't really suit what the game says a WM should have. I have Juan Iturbe, who's young with potential to develop into a pretty good winger but won't ever have strong defensive attributes. I don't know if it's even worth it trying to retrain him.
