  1. Leave your coaches, low down you wont have the facilities to train a superstar, and if you sack them you pay compensation that will hit your finance's. Replace them when their contracts run out. Don't be shy to fill up your full quota of loans, especially ones that you pay no wages towards. Get a parent club in, take the one that offers the most cash per year, don't worry if they are any good as when you get to their level, you will be able to look again for the big Premier League Clubs.
  2. What tips do you need? I played Torquay in the Beta, bar the mess with the free transfers and loans if you turn off the first transfer window, I loved it and got them in to League 2.
  3. I have a file on the Steam Workshop for conference South and North free players, many would do a great job in the Conference itself
  4. It will completely spoil LLM as it is. The old way worked perfectly in my book.
  5. I raised this yesterday, great in Higher leagues, a total disaster in LLM. Many conference clubs North/South and below sign players on short term contracts, this kills the realism and is overkill how it is now done on FM19. Also it has caused the other issue I have of no goalie for 5months and now unable to sign an emergency replacement, which is gaming breaking. Very poor why this has been changed, as usual the LLM side has been left as a bit of an after thought
  6. I don't disagree with that at all. I've gone a week in with Torquay and have no goalkeeper for 5 months due to injuries and no way of signing an emergency one either
  7. Actually a good question, lol. Talking of free transfers, not spending cash for players. Lower leagues with injuries and fatigue its needed in the first season at times.
  8. Same for me, spent 3 hours looking at players and then find I cant sign any on trial Really poor decision this.
  9. I've always played with the first transfer window turned off, but can't understand why that now means you cant sign players on loan, trials and free transfers. Game breaking as far as I'm concerned, wrecked my enjoyment of LLM
  10. In all the past games it has only turned off until the next window, ie January, I think you are incorrect FrazT. Sounds like a bug to give all the other teams money to spend in January and not the human players.
  11. Thanks for the response, I don't want to waste anyone's time if it isn't a bug. The database editor will give me a clue if it's an issue or something when it comes out.
  12. I only play with the first window off, JC1, i find it gives a bit more realism to me and changes the transfer market for the better 😀.
  13. Herne79 do you have any answer or feedback on my post just above, not being impatient just can see it missed due to the pointless bickering above and below it? Many thanks 😀
  14. Hi, I don't know if I heard correct. Their seems to be a lack of staff compared to old versions available for free, is this because the database is restricted before full release or how it will be in the game itself? I struggle to find any lower league staff on my games unlike FM16. I had a 107k players generated across 35 leagues. I have seen the comments about Ajax staff and licence issues, wouldnt it be an idea to randomly generate replacement staff each game as again this is a real struggle on a new game to find quality staff and effects enjoyment especially when you play with the first transfer window off?
  15. Try this Poolfan, hope it works for you. http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/279162-Football-Manager-2012-*OFFICIAL*-FAQ?p=7184730&viewfull=1#post7184730
  16. Keyzer, my steam is on full time, I have other games, and was a user before FM. My thread, wasn't a steam moan, and neither is this one either from what I see.
  17. Let's be clear, I have no problems with Steam, had it before FM, with counter strike, but I am absolutely jacked off with your unannounced updates ruining my long term save games. For the third time now I have to start a new game, as you have decided to update my files and over write changes I had made to the game. Nations of players are blanked out again, competition names defaulted. If you want to do something useful, get to work on the manager AI for FM13, and leave my game alone. Over 60 hours you've wasted now, changing files on my computer, think I have every right to be fed up!
  18. Edgar, it ended up in here as the sackings and insecure status of new manager's seems to be worse since the patch was released. Like I said above, that Milnerpoint also missed, I will be buying FM13 in the hope it has been given a massive overhaul, but if it hasn't it will be my last FM game.
  19. Milnerpoint, we are raising a valid point that you can't be bothered to read! We know the ME is changed every year, we aren't arguing that, we are talking about the AI of the Managers and clubs. No chucking toys out, so before flaming, read what has been written please!
  20. Wally, I know what your saying, Jon is right though, we do hear "being looked at for the next version" every year, and new game arrives and its still a complete pickle (sound like me sadly departed Grandma, lol). All the moral tweeks just make the problem worse. Game code on New patch seems to making no allowance for a new appointment, so new manager takes over and straight away you get rubbish news reports he is on the verge of the sack, at a club expected to struggle. Forget PA/CA changes for players, as unless you sign them, they spend there career roting in the reserves, Jack Wilshire for last 3 FM's for example, whilst the AI continues to play 38 Rosicky!
  21. It's been 5 year's with no acknowledgement or changes, and the new features and moral tweaks just seem to make it worse! For me buying FM12 has been a complete waste of money as its totally unrealistic. I've gone back to CM01/02 with an up to date database, as it is more fun to play and more realistic as well. I've bought every game in the series, going back 20 years, and I buy FM13 as well, but if they start pod casting in September over a new interface and better press conferences and ignore the AI again, it will be my last. I expected to be ignored, or get a patronizing request to upload a save game they won't look at! Last 5 years have made me cynical, like posting two years ago about Man Utd picking a reserve team to play in the champions league semi, and still doing it now! AI managers are shot to bits.
  22. What a surprise, any comments about the game AI, are ignored by SI Games! This is the area that needs improving, not the match engine. Unrealistic managers, managers not developing their squad, etc, is in mine and a lot of people's opinions on here, spoiling the game. Dave C, wrote a superb post on why LLM is badly neglected and ruined by the AI, but was ignored by SI. Stop buring your heads in the sand guys, these issues have been going on for years and the game wont advance until they are looked it! Really disappointed!
