  1. Sorry if this has been asked before (I did search). If I increase my scouting package the number of players that show up in player search increases immediately. If I don't really use the player search outside of a transfer window (or a couple of weeks before) is there any point in leaving it on anything other than the very cheapest package, to save money? (I'm playing as Charlton and the debt is crazy, I'm trying to reduce costs wherever possible.) Thanks for any replies.
  2. I seem to be able to get a scout to give me match reports on players I have out on loan (or maybe just my chief scout, not sure), but I want my scouts off around the world. My data analysts do basically nothing all the time, so can I get them to do these reports on my players out on loan? It would be useful to have data on how, say, the player on loan's interception stats compare to the players in my first team squad, to see if he's worth recalling or whatever. I can't see if this is possible, or if so how to go about it. Cheers for any replies.
  3. I do - just uploaded the file CL - St Johnstone pre-offer.fm. And I can confirm that the player is still complaining about it three weeks later and spreading it to others in the squad.
  4. Summary: A player is complaining to team-mates that he wants to leave because he won't get his work permit renewed, despite a new work permit having been granted. Description of Issue: In my St Johnstone save I have an Algerian player called Ilies Nateche. I offered him a contract renewal, but a few days later he came to me saying he wanted to go out on loan because he was worried he wouldn't get a new work permit at my club. I refused so he became unhappy and started complaining to team-mates. He then failed the initial work permit application, but was granted a new work permit on appeal (for a three-year deal). At this point his complaining presumably should have stopped, but it persists and there's unlikely to be any way to clear it. Steps to Reproduce: It's the first time I've seen it - steps taken are above. I don't know whether his coming to me asking to be loaned out was related to my offering him a new contract; the timing may have been coincidental.

  5. Was there ever any change to this? I'm having exactly the same problem, players constantly badgering me for a new contract who have over four years left on their five-year deal. And FM18's go-to answer of 'you have plenty of time left on your current contract' just seems to make them moan more, the greedy bastards.
  6. And I have looked, honest. I can't see anyone else asking this question so I presume it's staring me right in the face - can someone tell me where you go in FM 2019 to add/remove a player trait/preferred move? Last year it was player page -> Development menu -> Training, but I can't find it there now. Thanks.
  7. Not a bad idea, though I'd like to see it as an option, not mandatory, a bit like player attribute masking. If you made it mandatory it would make anyone who likes the transfer side never want to manage a club with this head coach/DoF type of arrangement.
  8. Hi - I'm after a new all-round laptop that I won't use much for gaming, but that I do want to run FM18 fairly smoothly. Does anyone know if this would do the job? https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-i7-7500U-Screen-Windows-Laptop/dp/B076ZP18X9/ref=sr_1_1 My main concern is the Integrated HD Graphics 620; I can't work out from the minimum game specs if that's going to do the job. I don't really care about the quality of 3D games or anything like that - the speed of the game overall is a bigger thing for me. I like PC Specialist but they seem a bit dear/overkill for this. Thanks inadvance for any help.
  9. Nothing doing here then? It's still happening, game's basically broken.
  10. This happens both when I save the game manually or when it saves automatically: the save bar goes about a sixth of the way up (gradually,as usual) and then stops. The game is then unresponsive; I leave it for minutes and nothing happens and I have no choice but to Task Manager out of it. This happens often. I have just uninstalled the game, deleted the Football Manager 18 folders from Documents, and reinstalled the game, but the same thing has happened on my first attempt at saving after that. There is no error message or crash dump. Any suggestions?
  11. Ah great, OK yeah that makes sense when you put it like that - it depends on your specific needs at the time. Thanks warlock.
  12. Thanks MrPompey but my question is more specific than that. Ignoring how much it costs either way, is it better to send a scout somewhere he has limited knowledge of, or somewhere he already knows well? Which has the greater benefit, or do both have their own benefits?
