  1. I'm pretty sure i was able to pre-select what update i wanted in past FM? unless it was just player databases? if so i'm wrong i guess i didn't think the support thing through enough, sorry i will re-iterate though it doesn't matter to me as i like 15.3, apart from the injuries which do seem extreme at times, sometimes it's like the ME waits for you to make all 3 subs then decides here's an injury for you to enjoy the final 20 minutes in game time at 1-1 or 1-0 down i know thats not the case as the ME would have to be very evil
  2. not that i have a problem now with 15.3 but surely in future allowing the use of any update to ME isn't a big deal to SI, selecting the version pre-game would please everyone involved by simply saying no, surely you realise you are alienating more and more people every year, it's alright saying "you have a choice to buy the game or try the demo", but eventually that might lead to low numbers revenue wise and making you struggle to make future updates of the games? Steam used to allow you to choose which version you wanted so why isn't it now possible?
  3. one thing i've never understood is why SI always releases 1 skin, and in recent releases has always been a god awful bright skin in light shades, meaning people like me that have sensitive eyes have had to wait for darker skins to be available from 3rd party why not release 1 light skin and one dark skin? it can't be that difficult surely? this years default was ok mind, but last years was awful and giving me headaches
  4. loving this now on 15.3, all my previous issues are sorted, i'm getting injuries but to what i consider a normal level, like 2 or 3 players out at a time (i guess that's sort of like real football) i do think there is a problem though with player unhappiness due to not playing, at first i thought maybe it's a small issue, but now if i play a key player for 20 games but then decide to give him a 2 game rest for more important fixtures, after the 2nd game he complains, i try to explain he is an important first teamer but he accepts this, i then play him like i planned to all along and some play
  5. seems to be, in a few games i've noticed the Ai has made all 3 subs but then had to play with 9 men due to 2 late injuries i barely go a game now without an injury
  6. as i said earlier i was finding it difficult to get a tactic going for me like in 15.2.1, after 1 and a half seasons game time i've finally found a tactic working for my current squad, i can enjoy the game again now however as said in this thread before, injuries do seem a bit OTT, i finish pre-season and then all of a sudden 5 players are out for 2 months? i'm not an idiot though and i am looking into my training regime and seeing if that's the cause, but it is the same training before the update and i barely got many injuries, i expect injuries we all do but they do seem a little bit extre
  7. i don't really want help, i get much more satisfaction from being my own coach, i'm just at a loss, i've tried alot of formations and roles etc and nothing is working, i will keep trying until i'm sacked, which judging on current form won't be long i'm usually good at tactics and roles but this version has me stumped, keep trying the drawing board though, i've build a rep up so i should get a decent job after this anyway
  8. cheers mate, although i have no hope, like you before patch my team was insanely good, after patch they turned to absolute ***** instantly i have no motivation to start again
  9. sad times isn't it pal, sadly no system restore won't help as it's a file, iirc system restore only changes software unless i'm wrong and i hope i am as i will be instantly doing it
  10. 10 me now, i expect little niggles but all 10 are 4-6 weeks or more, i mean come on
  11. that's a shame then, it's game over from me unless a hotfix comes out too many injuries (it isn't a phase i have 7 out at this moment in time, 4 from 1 game and it's been happening for 3 months in game time, since the patch surprisingly) stupid animations, goalkeeper is hilarious at most times players asking for 1st team football too many times despite being new youth academy players and players set to backup in a contract they agreed too can't win a game, and i mean not a single game, despite having tactics in all previous fm working, i just can't figure this one out, it's like my squad a
  12. my youth players say it all the time, despite just being put into the youth academy, they are set as youth players or hot prospects, not sure what to do other than ignore them seriously thinking of re-installing and manually putting in 15.2.1 there must be some way of doing it ffs
  13. no i agree, it's just frustrating knowing what my team can do, but i'm still gonna be ok, Port Vale wanted me to avoid relegation so to still finish 8th is great, i'm determined to try more and i've posted in tactics for advice
  14. wanna swap accounts haha, i loved 15.2.1 hating 15.3 although i'm not saying you will
  15. my post is more in anger, SI i know you do a great job i'm just so frustrated as i love 15.2.1 and there's no way to get back to it, i'm gonna keep trying new tactics and squad rotation but i hold no hope for this save anymore, i build this Port Vale team up from 23rd position in League 2 to the top of the championship in 5 seasons, it wasn't easy then but it's now impossible
  16. so i took your advice yesterday, i've tried 3 tactics all completely different to each other, and in everyone (over testing of atleast 6 games each) the same thing happens, my keeper and i have tried others do the exact same thing, drop the ball from any kind of long range shot and let an attacker tap it in whilst they prance about looking like the walking dead 3 tactics, one very attacking, one very defensive and 1 with a slow tempo and patient build up? is it still my tactics, before the update 15.2.1 Port Vale position 1st played 24 won 18 drew 4 lost 2 since 15.3 played 19 won 3 drew 6 l
  17. atleast your usually reliable goalkeeper doesn't drop a 20 yard shot every game and let an attacker tap it in whilst he spins like a ballerina on the spot
  18. i appreciate the help but i don't like it at all, how can my keeper go from conceding very little in 15.2.1 to dropping balls and letting attackers tap it in when his handling is 18?, what tactic can i use to tell him to catch the ball? like in 15.2.1
  19. i'm losing 1 nil or 2 nil but getting 3 goals ruled offside most games and hitting the woodwork 3 times or more, it's obviously not the tactics just the new update
