  1. Howdy,

    Not sure yet if this is a potential bug or working as well as it could. I usually play with a cloud save since I have a work laptop I use when I travel (every week) and thus I've started to get slightly frustrated with the Steam syncing process.

    It takes at least 10 minutes for the save to sync once I've turned the game of and it takes at least another 10 minutes to sync it on the other computer.

    Is this something everyone experience? First the sync is 0% 0 bytes/s for about 5-6 minutes. Then it starts to actually sync, usually around 3-5mb/sec. Despite that speed it stays on 65% for another 5-6 minutes. And then it's suddenly done. 0 to 65 to complete in about 10-15min.

    Normal or bug? Steam issue or FM issue?

    This has been an issue since FM17 but I haven't used syncing as much as I do now.

    I sync on 3 different computers and several different connections and it's always over 10 minutes for sync.

    If you think it's a FM issue, then report it in the bugs forum, but I would've thought it'd be a Steam issue. Or maybe even a network issue your end but that's unlikely if it's only for one game.

    Thats kinda what I'm asking, if other who use the feature experience similar "issues" or if it's just me and thus a bug.

    If this is an issue with Steam Cloud saves then it's a Steam issue and not anything that SI can look into.

    Yeah, I would assume that as well. The funny thing is that I only have this issue with FM (i've had it for several versions of FM). Every other game is lightning fast when I sync it. Even with large files.

    Is there an easy guide to doing it?*

     

     

    *easy defined as my knowledge of computers ends writing BASIC on commodore16 

    Not sure you could find a good guide explaining that in particular.

    But basically what you will have to do is the following:

    1. Start the Editor 2018
    2. Click the Rules menu and then "Add nation rules"
    3. Choose England and mark "Create New Competitions And Rules"
    4. Choose Season Update Day and Season Start Date/End Date click Finish.
    5. Now you've loaded up a "clean" English league system. 
    6. Add Transfer Windows, Transfer Rules, Discipline Rules, Work Permit Rules
    7. Add Divisions - Click on Divisions below Work Permis Rules. Click Add. Start with the Premier Division so choose "Single Division". Pick the Premier Division (11). Here you can set the Sub rules, Promotion and Relegation places as well as Match Day. Click Finish.
    8. Click Divisions again, it will expand and show English Premier Division. You will have to edit all the settings there to your liking. You will find one line under English Premier Division that say "Prize Money". Thats where you edit who will get what.

    Thats the basics of it. Now you will have to do step 7 to step 8 for every Division you want to add. Note that for Vanarama North/South and below you will want to choose "Contains Sub-Divisions" instead of "Single Division".

    You will also have to add Cups, Reserve and Youth leagues and so on.

    Hope that will help you enough to get going. If not, give me a shout and I can probably create it for you when I have the time.

  6. Greetings!

    I'm currently in 2020 with my Liverpool and last season we bought Dybala. He managed to get 20 goals and 10 assists in 30 games. Pretty decent and he was my best performing attacker overall.

    Despite this I find it a bit weird that he instantly turned into a Legend. Is that realistic or a bug?
    Firmino who has been my best performing player in general since I took over Liverpool is only considered Favoured Personnel and 0 other players are on that list at all.


  7. Is this tactic expected to produce a lot of injuries? My second season with the tactic (it worked great the first season, winning alot) and we have constantly been top of the injury table. Almost all injuries are from matches. First season we averaged over 1 injury per game. Henderson for example missed 127 days with 6 different injuries all from matches. 

    High intensity so wouldn't surprise, but it's hard to keep the starting 11 for more than 1 game in a row. Anyone else have issues?


  8. I know how to do this but the way I know is not simple :)

    So if someone knows a better way please feel free to correct me.

    In short, what you need to do is to actually "re-add" the entire Serie A and a lot of basic rules will have to be set again.

    Go to the Editor.
    Click Rules in the top menu.
    Add Nation Rules.
    Choose Italy and Create new competitions and rules

     

    Then you have a "clean" Serie A and you can add all the rules you want. You will also have to add all the divisions against. Basically what you got is a template for the Italian League System and now you need to add all the divisions, transfer windows, transfer rules, prize money, tv money etc

    To change your sub-allowance go to Divisions in the bottom left menu.
    Click add.
    Choose a single division.
    Add Serie A
    Click "Next" and you will have the option to choose sub allowance amongst other things.

     

    As I said, this require a bit of work and I know of no way to only change one rule, instead you have to redo the entire Italian League System.

    Good luck.


  9. I've noticed that sponsorship deals seem to be very slow growing. I have a special version of the Swedish league system where it is played much like EPL. I've also created my own team (in the data editor) and I've won the league for 5 seasons straight now, I'm also constantly in the group stages of CL, usually getting the first knockout stages. Still my team is the lowest in the league when it comes to sponsor money. I pretty much get around 500K british pounds a year in sponsorship and it have increased from around 400K in my first season.

    So I think sponsorship generally is slow growing. Maybe it's random as well?

    I recently bought S3 as a replacement for S2. And it is good in 3D and doesn't lag at all, comparing to S2 that was quite laggy.  Graphic details are still the same, but it is intended behavior... So, may be, something wrong in your tablet config / settings?

    I don't sure that Shield will be better. The only one that is definitely better is newest IPad Pro

    Strange. Will have to look into that then because it's not playable with my S3 at this point.

    Good to know! Will play around with settings!

    I would have thought the tab s3 would have been better then shield being the newer tablet?

    I thought it would be enough, and maybe it's an issue with settings from my part. Will look into it.


  11. Hi!

    As my title state, what device would you recommend playing this on for a good flow? I'm especially looking for feedback regarding Android tablets.

    I'm currently playing on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and it's very slow in menus and moving forward takes ages. 3D is not possible as it's very laggy. Looking to get a more powerful tablet to play this on. Nvidia Shield?

    Thanks!


  12. If the HoYD only allowed players with wonderkid status and potential world beater stats come in the Youth Teams would soon be pretty much empty.

    So maybe that NF 4 is the best of a poor bunch, the HoYD still needs to make sure the Youth Teams actually have any players at all or oterwise it's gonna be hard to develop those rare ones with really high potential.

    "Welcome to the Academy James Lorne, we have great hopes for you and we believe you can become a Key Player for us. Unfortunately we don't have any other players for you to play with so we gonna loan you out until you are good enough for the Reserves. Bye, see you in a few years!"


  13. I've recently started to notice a lot of "buggy" situations when someone is passing a really long pass thats on-side. Has something changed regarding this?

    In a single season I've seen the defence simply ignore a long range pass which have allowed a striker who wasn't even close to the ball to simply jog forward and then be 1on1 with the goalkeeper whilst the defence just stands further up, apparently not even aware of the ball. I haven't seen this once in my first 800 hours of playtime, but now, in a single season I've seen it happen 6 times in different shapes.


  14. I've been trying to understand why and when a player get nervous but I can't seem to find any reasonable explanations. Can someone explain this scenario for example:

    5th game of the season, we are occupying 1st position in a modified Swedish league. Our players have just arrived, supposedly high on confidence after beating the expect league winners with 5-0.

    I start with the same line-up and I tell them to "Continue where they left off!" in a calm voice.

    The opposition is AIK, currently 10th in the league and we have no relationship to the club other than that we play in the same league.

    The game starts. About 5 minutes in, The entire front three turn to Nervous or Very Nervous. 

    15 min in and we are totally dominating AIK, just not scoring, but they have had 0 shots. The front three plus 1 midfielder and then entire back 5 turns to Nervous or Very Nervous.

    We miss some easy chances, our primary creator shoots every time he get's the ball, doesn't even look for openings anymore, he is so Very Nervous.

    Half time. I tell them all to relax, the result will take care of itself.

    At this point we have 20 shots, 11 on goal and 3 CCCs whilst AIK have 3 shots 1 on goal.

    Second half is a mess. I eventually sub three of the most Nervous players but the subs instantly turn to Nervous/Very Nervous.

    AIK manage another shot on goal and converts it.

    We manage another 5 and doesn't convert it. The team is just dying from nervousness.

    Why? What did AIK do that turned my Professional squad into a Very Nervous mess?

     

    Team is Professional, I have 0 players that doesn't enjoy Big Games and everyone is Good or higher morale wise.


  15. It's usually a pain to get them to sync in the sense that it takes a lot of time.

    Once you have saved and exited FM it usually takes around 4-5 minutes for my save to fully sync (despite being on a 100/100 fiber connection). Do you see the sync starting when you close down your FM? It could seriously take some time.

    Then, when I want to play on another computer I either have to let Steam be for several minutes or go into FM and then exit again for the sync to start.

    So in general, it needs a lot of time. You can't just save to cloud, exit FM and turn off the computer. It's needs several minutes. It's not very good and have never been.

    What's your tactic? It's possible you have a cautious approach, so the players will play a safe style, only really feeling urgency in scoring when the team's already losing or the match is near the end.

  17. I'm currently playing FMT and I've been having serious issues with "lazy" starts of games. We are constantly underperforming in the first half, meaning we almost always have to play catch up in the second.

    Example:

    Against Sporting away: 1 shot on goal in the first 45min. Sporting had 8. Scored twice. We have 10 shots in the second half and manage to grab an away goal.
    Against Tottenham home: 0 shots in the first 45. Tottenham had 9. Scored once. We had 12 shots in the second half. Scored 1 but so did they.
    Against West Brom home: 2 shots in the first 45. West Brom 6. We then managed 15 shots in the second half and a 2-0 win.

    This goes on. Why are my players so poorly motivated in the beginning and how do I do anything about it without having the option of team talks?

    Is there any way to stop that stats screen from popping up every few seconds and blocking the screen? It's so infuriating as I want to watch the game, not read about it 

    The interface is so clunky it reminds me of playing management games on the PlayStation. Why have you made it so difficult to do even the most basic of things?

    Just change highlights to Full Game and you will watch the entire match without popups.

    I think there's a HUGE misconception about the feelings many of us have for FM...

    We tend to be negative and merciless because, guess what, we all LOVE this frustrating, bloated, inconsistent mess of a game! :D

    All the "hate" stems from our desire for it to be better, to be even closer to what we expect of it. It's like the teacher who is harsher to the students he knows can do more but are lazy or careless.

    Frankly, hadn't we loved FM so much, we'd have given up on it a looooooooooooooooooooong time ago instead of stubbornly reporting bugs, debating features and discussing about all the minutiae that make the game both amazing and infuriating.

    To be fair there is also A LOT of "This game sucks and everyone who works on it are lazy and useless" and it might be nice for those to read something else once in a while :)
