  1. Are you seeing opponents punishing your right side? The BBM might not cover sufficiently for the attacking full back? Positive and high line could mean there's quite some space to exploit back there if you lose the ball.
  2. Hi team SI After installing the recent match engine update, I am seeing noticeably poorer match performance. Although my computer is not the highest spec'ed one - matches ran fairly smoothly prior to the update. Now it is really stuttery, almost looks like the players can't decide whether they should be walking or running, if that explanation makes any sense. I use the 2D view. Is there anything I can adjust in either in-game or system settings to improve performance? Computer specs are i5 8265U, 8 GB RAM and Geforce MX 250 graphics. Detailed "dxdiag" info is attached to this post. Thanks! DxDiag.txt
  3. Long shots here, long shots there, long shots every effinwhere... Seriously, I'm so sick of conceding long shots. Adding a dmc? Didn't help. High defensive line? Long balls over the top. Low defensive line? Long shots. Hard tackling? Free kicks and, you guessed it, long shots. Urgent pressing? Beaten by through balls. This game is impossible! "too easy" my... Rant over.
  4. Cheers! It will be a while before I can get to another FM session but I'll make sure to report back 🙂
  5. I forgot to mention, I have lowered both loe and defensive line. Would love to see it, thanks! I'm on FMT, not sure if it makes any difference in sense of file types. Lots of ideas here, thanks for sharing! How would you guys use the central mids? I've been trying a CM (D) to the right (cover for Yedlin when he flies off attacking), mostly Hayden, and.. No idea really for the left one. It's been a CM (S) just because I can't think of anything better. Usually S. Longstaff.
  6. How would you guys set Newcastle up this year? I don't wanna go all Bruceball with 5 at the back and give up possession at every possible opportunity, but I can't get anything else to work either... Tried the 4-1-2-2-1 or how you would define it - Dubravka between the sticks, Willems as WB(S), two DC (D), Yedlin bombing forward at right back (FB (A) dat pace!), Shelvey pinging passes as a DLP(S) in the DM slot, Joelinton working his socks off as a PF(A), Maximin cutting in from the left as IF(A) ... struggling with the central mids and overall team instructions. Trying to play on 'positive' with 'play out from defence', regroup and counter, not added much else tbf. Trying to keep it simple here. We're getting hammered by everyone! Help?
  7. How do you install FMT on a phone? Does it appear in Google Play store?
  8. This makes sense - they probably want the same game and version across all platforms. If it is the case I think it's horrible customer service tho ... if a ready patch for PC and tablets was delayed because of the launch on Switch. But here's to speculation. Obviously I don't know what's going on in SI HQ.
  9. I just took my Newcastle side to Anfield. We lost 1-6. Pool had 37 (19) shots, while we had 18 (8) ourselves. Madness.
  10. Seeing as many (all?) of the pre release screenshots are from 1024 pixel screens... No wonder they are having a hard time fitting everything in! Perhaps it's time to move forward to 2019 and optimise the game for larger screens? Just an idea!
  11. Is the MX 250 graphics card sufficient to play 3D? I would think so, I have some kind of integrated intel graphics now (4000 or something) and it runs, although very poorly. Will the MX 250 be noticeably better?
  12. Would this processor be any good for FM? Intel® Core™ i5-1035G1 Specs says it has a base clock speed at just 1GHz, but turbo up to 3.6 GHz. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/196603/intel-core-i5-1035g1-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-60-ghz.html
  13. Someone mentioned previously it is really hard to see the ball this year, and I have to agree. Yesterday I played a few matches and often found myself thinking "what's going on" as I couldn't really follow the ball. I hope you can fix this in an update, whether you make the ball bigger or in another colour or whatever.
  14. Holding on while you're working on the attribute thing, but loaded up a challenge and played a few games. This new layout in matches will take some time to get used to, but I'm sure I'll come to love it. Inbox... not so sure about that change tbh. Liked it better last year. I sent four staff members on various exams, they all failed (3 x "normal" aptitude and 1 "natural). I think this was a bit harsh, maybe I was just unlucky. But will pay attention to this going forward. Mentoring might be a good addition, if only I remember to follow up on it. Another thing I need to think of.. Match engine seems snappier than last year (device: Galaxy S9), that's a good thing. Consistency - in the main game (PC) we have 'pressing forward' as a striker role, while in the mobile game it is still 'defensive forward'. Should perhaps be changed? I'll put down some more feedback later on when the fix is out and I've started a proper save. Game seems solid enough at first glance.
  15. A bit disappointed we didn't get the official "retro" skin this year. Also, playing on 3D (lowest settings) seems fluent. 2D is laggy. What gives?! i5 6200U and Intel HD 520 (low spec laptop, hence 2D... but I thought 2D would be less demanding than 3D, apparently not!)
  16. That's great news! I believe I have used one of your skins previously, excellent work. Thanks for taking the time to create a skin, and sharing it with the rest of us. 👍
  17. I couldn't resist so I boarded the BETA train this afternoon. I love that the general interface is much smoother and snappier than last year, although I'm having some performance issues with the match engine. That wasn't a problem last year and if I had to choose between them I'd rather have a bit laggy interface and smooth matches! Hoping it will be fixed eventually though, there's a rather large thread about this over at the bug forum. Other than that ... early days, but it feels much the same as last year with some neat improvements here and there. I like it. What I don't like is that skin! I really hope someone from the community will whip up a custom skin for FMT post release. That purple and white is, sorry for saying this, ugly.
  18. Came here to post about this but see I'm clearly not the only one ... My hardware isn't the best (integrated Intel HD 520) so I stick with 2D. Had no issues with '19 (and could even play 3D on low settings!) but 20 is choppy. Fingers crossed for an update to this!
  19. Summary: The possession bar is missing when viewing the match stats info screen between highlights. Description of Issue: Steps to Reproduce: Start a match, select "comprehensive view". Issue appears as per the above screenshot. Edit: after posting this I realised there's a scrollbar to the right. Scrolling 2px down reveals the possession bar. Could this stat box be a few pixels taller, to avoid the scroll bar?
