  1. Thank you. Just downloaded that and it works so thank you. It's made the flutskin dark a bit of a mess in places though. Any ideas?!
  2. Hi. Could anyone tell me how to make stadium background pack appear as a background on the matchday screen? Searched for this but can't find anything even though I have a distant memory of reading something about it on here.
  3. Well I've signed 15 players over the summer! Overkill maybe? Some of them were on loan to me last season and I've just signed them permanently, but about 11 brand new ones. Surprised how easy it was to snap up what look like quality players as a newly promoted National League side. Finding it hard to offload anyone though!
  4. Thanks for the advice, GianniM. Never really got into FM because I like to get properly into it or not at all and modern life doesn't really allow for that until this lockdown. Will try the 2D pitch. Do you do extended, comprehensive or key highlights? Found myself waking up wondering how to approach Kings Lynn away or whatever recently! Like the old CM times.
  5. Thanks mate. Congrats to you too for what sounds like a very similar achievement. Thanks for the advice. Yeah whenever I've been to a National League game in real life it seems almost entirely based on physical/strength attributes! Not sure it will be like that on the game though. Pace seems to be everything on this game. I inherited a player for Gateshead on loan from Huddersfield called Dom Tear. His average rating isn't that high and his attributes aren't amazing, but when actually watching on the 3D pitch ( I have it on extended highlights) he is ridiculously fast and just tears past full backs almost always leading to a clearcut chance.
  6. Not really got round to playing Football Manager for a few years (despite buying it every year) but have done in the last few weeks for obvious reasons. Anyway, just got promoted with Gateshead (randomly chosen) from the Vanarama North (winning the play-offs despite coming 7th!). Never been promoted on FM before - at least not since the old Champ Man days. Any particular tips on how to approach the summer months before embarking on the National League? Another thing. About half my team that won promotion were loan signings. Is that allowed in real life?
  7. Just started playing this properly and it's great BUT - a few months in and nearly every game seems to have all or the vast majority of goals in the first half. Has this been noticed already? I bet it probably has. Like in a weekend of ten Premier League games there's about 25 goals, and about 20 of them are in the first half. I don't think this is the case in real life - the opposite if anything. Great game though.

    Brilliant. Thank you. I downloaded the DAZ8 backgruonds but they're all weird in the background - the pictures aren't the right size or something. Makes all the stands look really steep and you can tell the pictures are distorted because the goals are ridiculous shapes. This is great news - thanks again.

    Am doing now. Sorry I thought they came with the game. Do old background packs from previous FMs work with this one? Thanks for your help.
  10. What has happened to the small stadium pictures on the main team screen? They are all a picture of the same grassy field somewhere.
  11. Sorry. Now sorted. Please delete if possible.
  12. In previous versions there was a file in My Documents called Sports Interactive but nothing now. Has this changed? Many thanks for any help.
  13. Thanks. Maybe I should have done because I didn't do anything and ended up losing on penalties. Quite depressing actually. Can't be arsed with a new season now!
  14. I always start with a lower/non league team and then lose interest after half a season then stop playing and come back to FM a few months later and start again. But I've just got through to the National League play-off final with Gateshead by virtue of a last minute winner in the semi-final. I now have two weeks til the final. Is there anything you'd recommend doing in the week building up to the game that I won't have thought of that could boost chances of victory, being as how I've never had a game remotely close to this one in terms of 'importance'. I usually just click through to the game then do tactics, other than a bit of training and player searching. Anything particular you can do before big games in terms of unsettling the opponents?! Quite nervous here. Christmas could be over. This is FM2015 by the way.
