  1. Congratulations mate-now that is an achievement!
  2. Slowly thanks for asking. I'm in February of my 1st season and after an inconsistent start trying to find the right team shape/structure reverted back to a 4231 and now 2nd 4 points off the top. Used some of your player recommendations (thank you) but very different to my last save Udinese where I had one of my most enjoyable and successful times and my default Swansea which was becoming too routine and predictable. Finding Dresden and Bundesliga 2 very tough going by comparison. Just persuaded the Board to improve facilities. Where are you currently and what formation/tactic are you playing with?
  3. Enjoying it wicksy and I've just started a save as DD and so it's food for thought particularly in respect to signings and developing the squad. Like you going to try and get a balance between getting out of B2 whilst fairly rapidly developing a youth system that delivers. This is first German save in about 10 years(!) and so still to get my head around the rules re foreign players etc but really looking forward to it.
  4. I have now thanks mate, tried various things from playing about with my preference settings, clearing cache and even changing from GPU rendering to software on my Steam account all of which means very little to me if I'm honest but hell I've given it a go! Spent conservatively 3 hours on it all told and I'm about to give up certainly for tonight unless another kind soul has an inspired thought! Thanks again.
  5. Thanks D-L-O I've done as you suggested but no joy and although you never can say I suspected it may have been the case simply as some skins do load. There's only one Skins folder. Tried installing via Winrar but my Mac won't allow me to use it when I try and uninstall for some reason. I'll have another bash.
  6. Hi, I love the look of this skin and although I've successfully installed other skins on FM 17 (Tempo, CFM, Sky Sports and Wannachup) whenever I follow the same process and try and load both this and OPZ Elite while it shows as a folder in my FM 17 skins folder it simply doesn't provide the option to load it via preferences in the game. Has anyone else had the same problem or have any advice? I've looked at the video on installing the skin and I seem to be doing what i should be but no joy and I'm developing a very bad case of Virtex Skin envy....Many Thanks in advance for any help
  7. Thank you wkdsoul but what constitutes a "walk through" varies on your competency and familiarity of the workings of a iMac/PC and left me in ever increasing circles. However, I've resolved the problem now as eventually I realised that as I'd downloaded the game via Steam the solution might be to look at the Steam Preferences and sure enough it allowed me to select different views that prompted the "old" choices of various screen resolution size. Thank you both for your advice though.
  8. Thank you D_LO_ but this is way beyond my basic grasp - I couldn't even do the first step when it talked about xml files, default font files, working folders. Is there anyone who knows of a simple solution? Maybe a skin that's addressed this issue? Must be loads of people who have cross the same issue
  9. Apologies beforehand if I'm on the wrong forum but for the life of me I've no idea where else to top with this. My old iMac died and got a new one and on loading FM and going to the preferences it gives me very few options re screen size (as compared to my old iMac). I pressed the normal screen size but needed a magnifying glass nearly to read the text on screen and so selected the +200 and it's still much smaller than previous iMac and TBH unplayable. How do I increase the font size please? Many Thanks, Medders
  10. Michu playing as a striker? Been v poor there for me and playing in midfield
  11. Thanks mate, so by the sounds of it it's Sod's law and completely random regardless of how good or bad your training facilities...
  12. Annual Youth Intake -Swans still in the Prem,season 2016/17 and i've a very good set of scouts who work well for me. I've appointed a Head of Youth Development 2 seasons ago who's got 18 for spotting player potential and 20 for man management. Why then are the annual intake of youth players a collective piece of ***** with at BEST one 3 star potential?? It defeats the whole point of having a head of Youth Development in part? Board have given me "good" youth facilities and won't go any further and no option to ask for better, above average youth recruitment - because of my own scouting?? Any ideas/solutions welcome... Thanks
  13. Good youth facilities and above average youth recruitment - because of my scouting? Which forum should i be on? Thanks for your help.

  15. Using this tactic with the Swans 1st season in the Prem and playing Gylfi as a AM player and ticking playmaker optin and quite frankly it's unreal...3 points behind leaders in February and only bought 3/4 players...
