    How to disconnect

    I'm gonna sound like a newbie now, but how do I disconnect a manager from a network game? That is, we started out playing on the same computer, but now I want to disconnect my friend so he can reconnect online. This used to be possible in the "go on holiday" menu, but not on FM2018, it seems. What am I missing?
  2. Does anyone know approx how much data is transferred whilst playing FM online? My friend is getting a mobile broadband for his cabin, and we were just looking for advice on how much data capacity we will need. I'm the server.

    Disconnect user in FM14

    I thought I'd activated network gaming in the settings, but it hadn't been stored. Checked it again, and it works. Sorry.

    Disconnect user in FM14

    A friend and I started a game on the beta, and now that the full version is out we'd like to continue playing online. However, it seems I'm not able to disconnect him from the game via the usual route (going on holiday and checking the "disconnect" box). Is this a bug, or is there some other way of doing this?
  5. Thanks - it actually seemed to work well last night, we managed to play a few hours without any problems at all. I guess we'll consider running fewer leagues next time we start a game. :-)
  6. Not that many. We currently have seven different countries running, so maybe twenty leagues in total, with (I think) the biggest database option. Before, we'd maybe run half that amount of leagues, but still with a large database. It's a setup that neither computer would have any problem running in itself, but since the problems mostly occurs during matches, I'm thinking that maybe the background calculations somehow "choke" things up. Any optimization tips would be helpful.
  7. Will the number of leagues running affect the stability of the network connection? My friend and I have been playing FM online for years, and never had any big problems. However, with FM11 it seems he drops out a lot more often, particularly during matches (I'm the server). We both have quite new computers - I'm on a MacBook Pro that I bought earlier this year, and he's just gotten a new Dell laptop. Because we have fairly new computers we thought we'd add some more leagues and players, and that's the only thing I can think of that's really different from before - apart from the fact that it's a new game, of course. Anyone experiencing poorer stability with FM11?
  8. I don't know how the SI save game files are constructed, but I imagine someone with programming skills and enough time on their hands would be able to create a shareware conversion app... might make some money too.
  9. Except for those who try to click on a player to see his name, misses slightly and ends up having to close a browser window to get back to the pitch. I don't mind the ads, but I don't want them clickable.
  10. I would like keyboard shortcuts to show and hide the various info boxes available during 3D TV view. I like being able to see the match stats and my own team's stats during the game, but they cover up parts of the pitch, so it would be great if there was a quick way to show and hide them. Also, these boxes could be a bit more transparent...
