    [FM19] Google Skin.v1 (Light Skin)

    Fatality! Manager Wins!!
  2. Since no topic about the update was created by mods/developers (lack of time is a possibility), I think it's safe to assume that the notes are identical to the "full" version.
  3. Yeah, I imagine they might include a few "ad hoc" fixes for FM Touch only (for example, manager experience); that's maybe why we haven't seen the update, yet.
  4. Also, keep in mind that, for team talks, I'm actually suggesting only talking to the team *as a whole*: I can do without individual or squad role (talk to the defenders, midfielders etc.) ones. It's just a matter of giving the whole team some encouragement, pep talk, or even getting it wrong and messing all up , but again only directed to the whole team.
  5. Agreed; in fact I've already mentioned I really would like HT ones (sorry for being obnoxious about it), and just them: perhaps, probably, we are overestimating how much of an impact they have in the real world, but ideally we know that, potentially, a manager can turn around things in the locker room during HT, both from an emotional and tactical standpoint. Now, you could say: "ok, but then we should have this other feature because it mirrors that RL thing, and then this other feature because....". No, of course not: from a gaming point of view, in this case, it's a balancing act between keeping it simple while mantaining that "sense of connection" with your team that, IMO, it's a bit too lacking right now in FMT (and really, I'm more than fine with all the other missing stuff like player interviews, press conferences, team talks outside the matches, myriad of staff positions etc. ).
  6. ...On the other hand, we had Team Talks in much "simpler" and straightforward versions of FM, starting at least in FM 2007. Doesn't seem THAT time consuming as a feature.
  7. Hey folks, While the update (19.1.2) for the "full" version of FM was only 176MB or so, the Touch version basically downloaded the whole thing again. Same happened with the previous patch. I have both FM and FMT installed on a SD; the only thing I did, like I do every year, (for both games) is change the user data location as explained in the "skinning hideout" subforum. Is this normal or not?

    Dynamics in FMT

    Sure, like I said, I would like it even if it was just for "show" in FMT, just for the reasons you mentioned. IMO, It wouldn't even require his own entry in the sidebar: just stick it in the squad screen (naming it "hierarchy" or "team hierarchy", for example) as another tab like the Medical Center one.

    Dynamics in FMT

    Sure: I would simply like to have this screen in FMT too, without the need of the other ones (Social Groups, team meetings, happiness, overview. Also, no problem if we can't influence any of that because of the nature of FMT, that's fine). I like how it's presented and it gives a different point of view of your dressing room.
  10. No, don't worry, I don't mean all the screens we get in the full version of FM Still, I think the Devs did a really great job with that, especially when it comes to the Hierarchy screen. Now I would like to simply see that along with the Assistant Manager feedback. I think it's just fun to check out the dressing room changes as the season/s goes by and players come and go. What I'm trying to say, we wouldn't need anything else related to Dynamics: happiness, team meetings, nothing (since we couldn't influence anything because of the lack of personal interactions, and that's perfectly fine) . Just a look at your team from a different point of view in a cool looking screen
  11. PC user here. From a performance point of view, transitions between screens are even smoother, something I noticed in the full version as well. As far as I'm aware, my eyesight hasn't gotten worse, but because of some of the text with a smaller font, this year I have to play with a +150% zoom compared to the +125 of the last few years (playing on a 2560x1440 monitor). Oh well Regarding gameplay, again a fantastic Touch version, probably the best one of the series so far. There is really nothing else to be said: streamlined, less bulky, same depth of the full version when it comes to tactics and transfers. With a slightly bigger leap of your imagination, you can still create your stories and relantionships with your players and the gaming world in general. After all, that's what we all did back in the day in ChampMan or the earlier versions of FM. Having said that, I continue to stand by my opinion that a couple things could be ported over from the full version: - Pre-game editor (I'm aware that there are technical limitations when it comes to tablets and/or crossplay; but hey, hopefully they can be overcome, sooner or later) - Just like in the old CMs, very quick interactions with the players; I'm not talking about conversations, just a "praise player" (in public or private) button or an "encourage/get angry" (again in public or private) one after a bad performance. - Half-time team talk (that's it, not even individual ones, pre or post or match shouts, nothing of that).
  12. Cool, yeah: when it comes to fitness, I tend to agree, be it a professional or a semi-professional team. Ok, you're not that technically gifted or savvy when on the pitch....At least RUN (so it's always important to have a good aerobic training and related coaches)
  13. So, for example, when you are in English Conference or even lower, and you see that lots of staff positions aren't covered (and the board allows some hires), what do you usually do? Of course I'm talking about, let's say, hiring a Data Analyst, or an Under 18 assistant manager. Should I bother or maybe wait 'til I reach, for example, League Two? I know I can also delegate some hires to the Director of Football, but I was wondering what you usually do. Thanks
  14. Depends: - Typical "rise to the top of the English Ladder": all UK leagues + Ireland, with a database that also includes all UK+Ireland players (from the "region" drop down menu choose GB & Ireland and tick all the boxes). - European team/eastern european (no top ones like Man U, Real etc.), I generally load all the leagues of the country I'm playing in, plus the "big 5" (Italy, England, France, Germany, Spain). - Top team challenge (Juventus, Milan, Man U, Real etc.): "Big 5" countries (max to the third level of the competition), Argentina, Brazil and some other european ones to keep in line with a wider and more realistic competition (Russia, Belgium, Greece, Turkey and the like)
