  1. Hey FM lovers I am thinking will it be possible to have an universal database from FM19 onward? So currently we can understand the FM games have two components: the Game (engine + interface) and the Database. Currently the Database only work for it corresponding Game (i.e. the 2017 database only work for FM17 but not FM18, there is no official way to play old database in new engine). It will be great that from FM19 onward the Database is universal to new Game afterwards (FM19/20/21/etc ). Understand one reason database is not universal is each year we may have minor changes to the database, e.g. new PPM, jump to height reach, etc., but i feel we definitely can develop an algorithm that new Game are backward compatible. What good for SI: - The old Game will not compatible with the new Database, e.g. Game 20 will work with Database 19, but Game 19 with not work Database 20. So people will still need to buy the new Games - Each new Games come with the free Database for the year and winter update (same as now) - People can now buy Database for previous season (New income for SI!) Or an even bold idea is have a universal/customized interface (free) + Game engine (sale separately, update every couple of years) + Database (sale separately, update every year). How do you guys think?
  2. I mainly play LLM so I am not sure if it is only happening in LLM due to low decision, but I feel even so it is a ME bug. When the attacking player make a long pass, miss their target and ball towards touch-in-goal line, many times the defending players will chasing the ball and try to control it, which many times result in a corner/throw in/pass directly to attacker. It is so obvious that they should just watch or shield the ball out and the defending team will have a goal kick. Btw I only see players shield the ball in the middle of the pitch, but never see they shield the ball out the touch line
  3. When you say active league, do you mean load leagues with view-only, or have to be playable?
  4. Hi, I found out after the recent update my game no longer autosave the match pkm in \matches folder. I checked my preference and everything is the same as before, the current matches folder is about ~55mb and match storage space is set for default. Is anyone one know how could it on after each game again? Thanks
  5. Few things I feel essential and need improve for many years: 1. Whenever we take over a new club, the previous undergoing transfer will be cancelled (both in and out), moreover because of the breakdown the player may refuse to re-start the negotiate. I feel when new manager on board to the new club, there should have a discussion which transfer I could carry on and which to be cancelled. 2. For some reason, I could never offer full time contract when I managing semi-pro clubs, this should be fixed. We should able to offer full time for player status as Key Players 3. Having the staff attribute masked as well? If we have someone worked with X then we may know more about him. Also some filter option for place advert as well? 4. Apart of storm out/no comment, add an option to wrap up the press conference after answered 4 or 5 questions? 5. An option to change appearance in the game? i.e. tie color/hair style 6. A way to archive certain emails 7. A way to understand a player's wage demand before make an formal offer(so no need to annoy the player), maybe through their agent. Currently when we approach free a player we can see "doubt", "extreme doubt" as an indicator, but they are not good predicator for wage demand as they link to reputation, etc.
  6. I have a CA 40 youth with PA 190+, all my 6 coach think he is CA 1.5-2 stars and PA4.5-5 stars, no one think he may end up just 2 or 2.5 stars. I didn't test too much samples though
  7. Thanks for reply, what I mean is not a 5 star player become 2 star in 2 years, as this could because the average PA of the team increase. What I mean here is at the same time, for the same player, scout A think his PA is 5 star but scout B think he is 2. As far as I can recall the biggest difference is like 1.5 stars. I feel it is not realistic especially for youth, there must some people believe he can turn out great but some don't believe it.
  8. Hey Barside, I am not sure the PA can be very inaccurate now, have you come across a time for one player two coach reports PA is 3 stars or more in difference?
  9. Hi, Recently there is a post regarding people release low potential youths immediately after they generated. This make me think about the game mechanism. In the game we know a 16yr old potential immediately after received them, and the coaching report is almost 99% accurate. However in real life I feel you can tell the potential of a 26yr old player but will be very hard to tell a 16yr old one. I have come out two ideas regarding on this: 1) The scout/coach report for youth is more uncertain. Not only more inaccurate, I would appreciate different scouts will have different judgment, some feel one is good and others feel he is not (and for sure high JP will have better chance to judge accurate overall). For now it is like all the scouts in the world can picture a player's potential 10 years later accurately and JP only determine how long he come out this accurate result 2) Maybe for youth under let's say 20 have a ranged PA, i.e. -5, so he will have a fix PA once he turn out 20, but before his PA is in range of 80-100, and different factors like playing time, injury, personality, etc will have impact on how much PA he will get when he is 20. Any thought?
  10. 4-1-4-1 can be very solid in defense but will struggling in making chance at many time. Try untick tight marking and high d-line and tick stay on feet, your opponent may have many shoot but 90% of them will be from long range.
  11. Hi, some thought, maybe not necessary new features. - For the current system, at the day we onboard to a new club, all there undergoing transfer will be canceled. I feel at least there should be an option to ask the new manager if they like these transfer. - For off side, I feel there are some bugs. many times the ref whistle is too late, many times they could whistle at the first time but they wait the offside player run all the way to chase the ball and whistle when he close. And many times they whistle offside but the offside player just position himself in the middle and have absolutely no intention or possibility to catch the ball. This should not be an offside. - An option to manager the inbox, i.e. to create folder or archive mails. One situation I have for most of my LLM save is, when I onboard a new club, I received a recruit recommendation from coach, but I have no scout so I need to post a advert and wait until I have a scout then able to scouting those players. It could take a few weeks. And if I take a lot trials in the middle, my index will be jammed by trial intake and leave and when I have the scout, the recommendation no is outdated and no longer exist. I could not archive the mail so have to add all this recommendation into a shortlist one by one. - When scouting a player, physical are most easy to get, then technical, then mental. That make sense in logic - The current press talk is so repeated. I believe most people just skip it after half a season. The reporter's question should re-designed. If I never respond a certain question or always answer the same way, he should not ask the same question week and weeks. There could introduce a chain event like in games crusader kings, so if we answer a certain option there could be a chain event in the next couple of weeks/months. Thanks,
  12. I feel retired player could tutor young players if they accept the non-playing position. Or maybe allow coach to tutor player will be a good idea
  13. Feel like someone else rise the same issue a month or so before. Apart of the issues reported above, one myth for me is it is common to see a right winger with right foot only make cross by his left foot. I remember in FM16 the developer said they are aware the issue and they are working on it, but seems got no improvement. Also beside in one on one situation the striker never try past goalie and always shoot on goalie's face, I would love to see the striker aim to shoot through the goalie's legs, feel never see this either
  14. If I play a away game and the pitch size is wide than my home, and I want my team to cover the same ratio of pitch as at home, should I increase the width of my formation, or my team will automatically for the pitch size (so automatic increase the gap between each position as well)?
  15. And I understand the OP is saying. The current system seems increase the reputation based on your previous reputation, like each trophy will increase a certain percentage. What make better sense is like no matter how low is your previous reputation, if you win a high profile competition (PL, ECL), your new reputation will at least be national (a floor level). Just imagine a rich guy buy a PL club and manage himself (no qualifications and Sunday League rep) and miraculously win the PL trophy, he will sure a very famous and reputable.
