  1. Please can you stop the pop up telling us that the Forum wants to send notifications and we need to go to settings of Windows 10 to turn them on? I turned them off for a reason yet every time I visit a new thread the pop up comes back. Very annoying. Edit: Even when I finished posting this post the pop up reappeared
  2. Hi, have they done something to the game to stop this working? I have had it working fine in the past but now I just cannot get the Add manager box to appear, I've installed directly to the correct folder and cleared cache, re-loaded the skin but nothing happens?
  3. Have you tried clearing the cache from the "AppData" folder? Never does any harm after a major update and often solves a lot of problems
  4. Hi This is something I have thought of before and I think it is something that can really add to the game as press conferences can get a little samey. As an example I have just declared interest in the Arsenal job , I got an interview, didn't get it but it went on for weeks. Yet in every press conference for the games it was never mentioned. In the real world the journalists would have been bombarding the manager with questions over his future almost ignoring the upcoming match. This would be something that would really add to conferences, also big issues could be brought in. Things like, questions on VAR, or general questions about the standard of refereeing, maybe after a controversial decision in a big game involving other teams. A general question about diving in the game for example. Also in Olympic years you could be questioned about other sports. I think it would be a big addition

    Backroom Advice

    This is something that I think has needed work for a while, I turn it off for the most part or at least make the reports come as infrequently as I can, too much of the advice makes no sense to me. For example there are loads of reasons for putting a player on the list, he may be unsettled, or it may be that you have a younger better player on a lower wage so you decide to list him. if that player is good, 3 stars or more you keep getting advice that "Has no reason to be transfer listed" , for me if the AI can't be programmed for the game to recognise the reason for listing him then just remove the feature. Not sure this classes as a bug or not as I'm not sure it's not designed this way, just feel the whole feature needs improving, mainly the AI behind it
  6. Hi Just been thinking about an earlier post I made about the restart option being missing for your scouts, for example if they have been scouting the major top leagues, like I always have mine do, once the season is over you have to start again and re-assign. If I have my chief scout assigning the scouts they always seem to just scout general focus, so how about this idea. In pre-season (and at the very start of your first season) you assign which leagues, competitions and/or regions you want scouted that season, your chief scout then does the actual assigning depending on yours scouts knowledge. A compromise of both systems really.
  7. Hi Jimmy Yes I am running some facepacks, I'll try it without, the issue seems to only happen after I play Man City so it will be a while before I would expect it to crash again, I'll give it a go I am running an edited database but I always have so not sure this is the cause though
  8. Hi Every now and then I was getting a random crash, after a game, maybe a day or so after the game I would press continue and then a crash dump occurred. I have just had another and I noticed something of a connection, I have no idea if this is important to track it down but the crashes all occurred after one of my teams played Man City. When I reload and play again there's no problems until maybe the next season and bingo, the crash happened again. I have uploaded 3 crash dumps neiluk v18.3.4.1093856 (2018.08.27 17.20.12).dmp neiluk v18.3.4.1093856 (2018.08.02 17.37.21).dmp neiluk v18.3.4.1093856 (2018.07.26 20.07.36).dmp Thanks
  9. You can't edit an assignment once it has finished, you have to create assignment again from scratch
  10. One thing I have noticed is that when you are in to a few seasons and you have scouted a lot of players during that time especially when bringing teams up through the leagues or increasing the clubs stature you will find players listed with a score of "90" and sign at whatever the cost. However when you go into that player you see that he was scouted a year or so back and you may have been in a lower league then. You then have to remove that and re-scout him, why not have a setting where you can tell scouts to go back and re-scout a top prospect , say in 12 months? Either an automatic setting or a command you can give the scout by interaction menu of a player.
  11. This version is the first I have noticed is missing this feature but it's a big miss in my opinion. I have 25 scouts currently and most of them are scouting individual leagues around Europe and various cup competitions, Champions League and Europa league for example. What's missing is the "restart" option, as it stands at the start of every season I have to manually create each assignment again. Please bring back the restart button!
  12. Agreed., also could be expanded when one of your players refuses a move away, you should be able to talk to him to stress that he should move, try and persuade him to re-negotiate with the buying club
  13. A massive part of any game nowadays is the almost constant interaction between managers and the 4th official, why not introduce this to FM, there can be light-hearted comments as options as well as angry dissent type which could lead to you being sent to the stands. Also why not also bring in interaction with your opposition manager during the game?
  14. Something that really needs to be looked at in my opinion is in the database , the staff, a lot have their attributes set to 0 so they end up with random stats when the game starts. This means though that you get a lot of totally useless staff in the game which lets face it just takes up room, for example a Physio with a Physiotherapy rating of 5. He/she shouldn't be let near a massage table with that rating, also scouts with Judging Player ability and potential rating at 5 or less. Is there a script or command that for the random generated stats which can make the game set a minimum and link the ratings to their role, say a minimum of 13 for Physiotherapy for a Physio as an example, and a rating for a youth physio set the working with youngsters to a minimum as well. Just an idea
