  1. Hi all. Query about the system performance check and whether it's working. I'm playing on a Surface Book 2 which has both an integrated graphics card and a dedicated NVidia GeForce driver. I've at the moment got the Steam and GamesPass versions installed and both are set to run using the NVidia graphics card. On the Steam version, the graphics capability is ranked at 3 out of 5 stars and runs on high with no bother. On the Gamespass version it's ranked at 1 out of 5 stars. I've run it on high quality and there doesn't seem to be any issues, just wondering if the check is working. Thanks.
  2. Hi. I did a search but couldn't find a result. Apologies if this has been mentioned, I'd be surprised if it hasn't. There's two steps to this. Unfortunately I didn't save the game for the first part as probably didn't think about it as much as I should have. Part 1. I'd made a contract offer to a player and a day or so after making the contract offer he rejected it and went on trial to a different club. This might actually be fine. The second part. The player is on trial and another club has managed to put an offer in for him. I decided I do want him so wanted to offer him a contract. Problem is I can't. Image 1 shows he's on trial. If I go to contract and approach to sign I get the message "You cannot make a contract offer for this player" and that I must have an offer for the player accepted first. If I click on make an offer I get the message "This transfer is not possible" and that he's a free agent so a direct approach to the player is required. There's no way for me to try and sign this player. I have the save file but it won't let me upload it as the file is too large
  3. Hi Kubi. I can add other training sessions on those days so it's not that. Plus the match review has to be the day after, doesn't appear as an option any other day. I suspect I need a specific staff role filled which I'm trying to figure out at the moment. I don't have a data analyst or a sports scientist (do have a head of sports science but no chief data analyst).
  4. Hi all, I haven't put this in the bugs forum as I think this is more than likely me being stupid, although not 100% sure it is the case. So I'm amending my training schedules. We're in pre-season at the moment and I've selected the pre season template that I want. I'm now altering it to include match reviews and match previews to sit around the friendlies. I can select the sessions that I want, but when I select confirm the additions I have added aren't retained and are replaced with Rest. I figured this might be a capacity thing (although I'm York they are all full time) so cleared the schedule and added the sessions in again. There are 2 friendlies in this week so it looked like the Monday a match preview, the Tuesday match day, Wednesday was a match review and a match preview, Thursday match day and then Friday match review. That didn't save either. Finally just having a match preview on the Monday and a match review on the Friday also did not work. Bug or am I missing something? Thanks.
  5. I have a Pro 3 and have no issues. Yes the fan comes on when playing but I don't believe it is as loud as many make out, and it doesn't get as hot as a laptop I used to have.
  6. I never got a chance to play last night (it took ages to sync all of the graphic files etc) but the more I think about it the more I reckon it should work. The only files that should sync now are related to the game save, and they will be synced by the time FM is launched. FM will access that file when it needs to, and as it's on the harddrive there should be no speed difference saving. That's if I've understood everything correctly. Will see what happens tonight.
  7. If it turned out I had to drag and drop then yes that's the route I would take, but if it can run picking up the files direct from Dropbox then that would mean it's a much simpler idea with the files ready on either machine.
  8. The other option would be to disable the sync until i've finished playing. Will let you know how I get on.
  9. I'm not sure it would. The files will be physically on the hard drive of the machine in what is the equivalent of a shared folder. It's whether it would cause issues uploading back to the Dropbox server every time the files are modified. I suppose it will probably be easier to simply drop the required files into Dropbox which will then always have an up to date copy of the file, and then save it to the correct location on whichever machine I'm playing on at the time. I'll give this a go tonight.
  10. This may have been asked before, but I couldn't find it on the search. Just wondering if it is possible for you to have your database and save game location as your dropbox folder on your PC. I have a PC and a laptop and I'd like to play the same game on both, so I'm thinking I'll install dropbox on the laptop and then when I play on the laptop it'll save the modified game into dropbox, making the most up to date game available on the PC when I want to play. Anyone done this/know if it works/won't work?! Cheers.
  11. Is that normal? Managing Harrogate in BSN and after Christmas have a match on the Monday, followed by a match on the Wednesday. Then of course I have my Saturday match. Not bothered about the Saturday match, but is two matches midweek normal for lower league teams? I have had a lot of matches postponed over the winter, but didn't think this was one of them.
  12. I'm pretty tired of the rants against Steam. They're becoming pretty boring now. However. I do think perhaps there should have been an offline way to register your game. I understand why SI and SEGA have gone along the Steam route as it does stop piracy (better than other methods), so I'm not sure whether making a call to registration call centre or wherever works as well - but I'd have thought if the serial number had been used elsewhere it couldn't be used again?! Oh and dongles and notorious for being crap with connection speeds.
  13. I couldn't be arsed reading through the whole thread, so apologies if this has been said. But... Football Manager is meant to be a sim, the most realistic management sim you can get to be exact. The difficulty is as hard as you want to make it - if you start in the lowest leagues with no knowledge of the team you're managing, it's going to be hard (as I'm finding. Harrogate may well be second but every game I've played has been thought out fully before the team sheet is submitted). Start off with a top 3, 4 or even 5 side in the top league of that country and it's going to be significantly more easy. The only difference is the added pressure to succeed. That is where the difficulty lies.
