  1. Think I am going to have to steal this one, been wanting to do a 442 system! Can I just ask: What the reason for BWM(S) vs say B2B or even CM(s)? Do you find the DLP(s) and IW(s) get in each others way at all?
  2. FM20 IGE works on M1 MacBook and Customer DB's should be fine as well. Have you managed to fix this?
  3. Good to know, thank you. I haven't played in a long time and was a pain to keep opening in windowed mode lol
  4. Sorry to summon you, was this fixed?
  5. Does anyone know if the bug where you have to start the game in windowed mode has been fixed?
  6. I've not played much since release, did the winter update improve the game? Is the general that it was a good update? Don't fancy checking back on 30+ pages lol
  7. I got promoted and finished 9th, now I’m bottom. I won the Champions League followed by the Premier League and now losing at home to Brighton Man Utd OP West Ham are in the top 5 after the half way point Arsenal were in the bottom half of the table for much of the first half of the season My Biesla-ball tactic is so inconsistent I lost 9-0 at home Wolves this season There are certainly more examples as well. The comparisons may have been made, Sorry if I have missed them. But there’s no Doubt this season is peak FM, and I love it.
  8. I got the MacBook because I like to use it in bed, on the sofa, in the kitchen, all over the place. I don’t have a desk in house setup permanently, if I did I would have gone for the Mac Mini. Other than that the performance is more or less the same, same internals, unless you are upgrading the RAM.
  9. I've admittedly not played a lot of FM over the Xmas period but it has been open in the background quite a lot, it hasn't crashed for me. I will try and play some over next few days and will report back if I get any crashes.
  10. The latest update seems to have improved the ME graphics and wanting more power. Maybe try turning the graphics down 1 and see how it goes? My machine has gone from cold to warm since the update and that’s also with turning down the settings. So either the update is less efficient or the update needs more power. Could be a mix of both.
  11. Am trying FM 21.2 but not yet Big Sur 11.1 - issue seems to be that High is now performing how Very High did before. I have seen people note in the general feedback thread the game looks better now. To be high now looks like very high did, and medium now looks like what high did. I lose the same FPS I did on very high on high now. Medium looks like high did and still 60 FPS. High was making the machine warm to touch but not hot. I am dropping to medium as that looks like it did for me before on high. Only 1 game in, but that seems to be the "issue" just that the game looks a bit better than before the update so a small increase in power required? edit: Medium also seems to make the laptop warmer than high did before. It's not hot but yes warmer than before edit 2: it's a lot warmer than before.
  12. The Affinity Suite and Final Cut Pro both work very well if that’s adds anything lol
  13. Don’t forget need to pay for Windows as well.
  14. This thread went a little wayward, not what I was expecting to see. I know people get purchase bias but some of the responses have been a little below the belt. I am an Apple user, iPhone, MacBook, iPad - I'm all in. I've had Window's laptops and a gaming PC before, but I just prefer MacOS for every day use. However Smurf is not lying when he says you can spend less and get more when it comes to Apple products. The M1 chips has closed that gap quite a bit, especially in the 13" Laptop space (as he has said himself), but their other range is still very expensive and overpriced, as are Apple upgrades. You can buy something, and like it (I love this MacBook) but still be aware there are other options that are better for other people/what their needs are and for cheaper.
  15. HUGE summer for Gillingham so far. First the outs, quite a few contracts were due to expire and none of these players done well enough in League One, no good for Championship level. Nathan Dyer was a disappointment as well. Cody McDonald's single goal was well worth it though. Only player I extended was the keeper Jack Bonham as I searched and couldn't find a better replacement. Now for a few sales. I had no plan in selling Rowe or Jordan but Rowe was annoyed I was playing him as IW rather than W and Jordan wanted £7.5k per week, jog on mate. Oglivie would have been good as LCB in my 3 man defence, but needed the cash. Now for the players in: Harvey White - Top class player on loan from Spurs, got an injury right away in pre season so not played any friendlies yet. Spuds want me to play him as a CAR but I have other ideas. Ryan Giles/Luke Matheson - Wing backs on loan from Wolves. We're playing with wing backs and these were the best two I could get in,. Cohan Bramall - Signed purely on the basis he used to play for Arsenal.. No needed cover LWB and didn't have many options, the Arsenal link is nice though. Zach Clough - Was tracking him last year but was not interested. Got promoted and he was happy to join. Adds a solid option that's different to my other strikers. Jake Hesketh - Creative central/attacking mid. Add's extra options to the midfield. Zech Medley - On loan with us last season and was excellent. No brainer. Also Arsenal lad, there's a pattern here.. Tyler Smith - Another option up top, has the potential to be a good striker at this level. Adam Phillips - Has some decent attributes to be a good squad player. Jack Hero Wilshere - Arsenal. For real he's a big name that can hopefully help push this team on. Will have to monitor his fitness heavily. Tom Eaves - 2nd season bringing back a former Gillingham player. This time Tom Eaves add's extra target man option. Bradley Dack and Luke Freeman we coming for you! at some point in the distant future David Davis - Got our hard man in the middle. Wouldn't be a team from medway without one. Anthony Stewart - I overpaid, I panicked. We were running with just 3 centre backs and he had the right attributes. Hopefully he comes good. Paul Downing - Same as above, but paid a little less. James Olayinka - Arsenal, Arsenal, Arsenal. Saw he was available for free, offered him a trial as wasn't sure, his attributes not that good. But he scored and got an assist in friendly. Low wages, decent potential, fits into the system. Why not. There's a couple of players who may still leave and will need replacing if they do, but overall I think the squad is better than last season, but still might need a miracle to stay up. At the moment budget and wages all gone so not a lot of wiggle room.
  16. Got so excited I didn't even spot that! Down to half he goes
  17. I'll post my full summer once a few more deals are completed, but this happened. Maybe this season won't be a write off after all, even if he's dropped off quite a bit
  18. Yeah MacBook Pro - you can find my FM21 benchmarks in the benchmark thread
  19. This is not the first time under 23's have been mentioned, although I can't seem to find the other one at the moment.
  20. Bunch of scum bags this lot, wanting pay rises from £2k to £6k per week. At this rate going to be left with 5 players.
  21. End of season talk with the players, all that space, yet I have to scroll to see the other options..
  22. The keeper stayed with us in the end, assume game allows him too, still says he is due to go with them. 2-0 up to 2-2, things went from amazing to awful so quickly. But the boys dug in and Samuel sealed it for the promotion. I'm not sure if getting promoted this early is even a good thing, this squad is not ready for Championship football.
