  1. My feedback is that FM is so good, last year I bought FM18 on pre-order and never even installed the game. Did the same thing this year with FM19 and still haven’t installed it either. Reason is, I feel like a prisoner on death row. Installing and starting to play is like volunteering to be taken to the gallows. I know my life will be over... FM is like poisoned wine, I have to resist the temptation to drink it. (My opinion on how good it is despite having never played it is based on addictively watching “let’s plays” on Youtube.)
  2. Wow this is what makes FM the best sports simulation game. I don’t say this out of pro-gay sentiment (I just don’t care and none of my business). Rather, to me it’s a real testament to the way SI has been able to model players like real people rather than just names and attributes and maybe a superficial personality. FM is as much a role playing game full of NPCs as it is as a traditional sports sim. Really need to fix facegen though))
  3. I wouldn’t run the game in portrait mode, that’s just the reason those are the options as opposed to others people might recommend or as just a smaller 1080p monitor. I work in portrait mode but pivot back to horizontal for normal applications. So I’d be running FM19 horizontally at 2560x1440.
  4. An gtx 1060 6gb and either: Samsung 32” WQHD LED Monitor (S32D850T) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L3KNOF4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 or Philips 328B6QJEB 32” LCD Monitor, IPS Panel, 2560 x1440 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CLMDH3L/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 (both pivot to portrait mode which I normally use)
  5. I’m building a Windows 10 desktop pc and plan on buying a 32 inch monitor with a resolution of 2560x1440 (aka WQHD or 1440p or 2k) and will have a graphics card sufficient to power it. My question is, does anybody know if I play FM2019 on it will I have any problems, such as text too small to read, blurry text/video, other scaling issues, or anything else I should be aware of? As I recall, 1080p is the game’s maximum resolution. I’ve read differing things about running 1080p applications with Windows on higher resolution monitors. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
  6. I try to get all the damn faces out of the game. Turn off facegen. No face packs. Use the editor to extract and delete all the faces that come default with the game. Text only. It’s all just too distracting for me. What a player looks like has no relevance in the game (i.e. purely cosmetic), yet I can’t help but look. And I must admit, it clouds my judgement sometimes because I won’t sign odd looking players or players with low quality images such as in lower league play. The lack of uniformity drives me crazy. Of course, I know this is just peculiar to me (which is the topic of this thread))). Most people like them and I fully understand why. This is not a put down or criticism of anyone else’s preferences))

    FM difficulty...

    This is great. Less information by definition makes things more difficult. I’ve always wished SI would add an OPTIONAL setting to make the numerical ratings on a scale of 1-10 or 1-5. It wouldn’t change how the game mechanics function (to my knowledge), it would be purely cosmetic.. For example, changing the 1-20 scale to 1-10: 0 = 0 1-2 = 1 3-4 = 2 5-6 = 3 7-8 = 4 9-10 = 5 11-12 = 6 13-14 = 7 15-16 = 8 17-18 = 9 19-20 = 10 In terms of programming, it wouldn’t take anything more than does converting pounds to kilograms or dollars to euros (I wouldn’t think). The underlying ratings are the same, the only difference is how they are displayed to the user. Seems like this could easily be done in a patch.
  8. To me, the best way to play is with no faces at all -- no faces that come with the game, no facepacks, no regens. i find the faces to be nothing but a useless and annoying distraction. The game looks so much cleaner without them. (of course, I recognize many people like them, nothing wrong with that, but if you're one of the people annoyed by them, get rid of them and see how you like it). In any event, complaining isn't going to change anything, no matter how spot-on the complaint.

    New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

    I'm buying a pc for purposes other than FM. Standard specs: core I-5 7200u, 8 gb ddr4, ssd, etc. question is, it comes with a NVIDIA GeForce 930M is this capable of running graphics 3d matches in FM18?
  10. SI, please print and post on the wall(s) of whomever is responsible for look and feel of in-game match experience.
  11. It should be noted the OP said nothing about commentary or chants. He said the in-match crowd noise is very dated and boring and could and should be improved. He is right. SI has focused on improving 3D graphics, switching to roles and duties, etc., etc., doing a variety of things to make the game more realistic and enjoyable to play. But why implement such changes if "a large chunk of users" don't want them? Bring back the sliders. Stop working on this 3D nonsense; a large chunk of users only want top down 2D view. Holding back on addressing obvious shortcomings or making improvements, because the mute and watch tv crowd doesn't want it, is a poor strategy. The goal should be making the best game possible, not making a game that will not disturb the game player while he's watching tv.
  12. This guide more than anything else taught me how to build my tactic way back in FM15. Read it again today and it's still the best guide out there.
  13. I agree. It's inexplicable that they don't provide a simple option to turn player faces off. How hard can it be to provide that option? Not everybody wants a hodgepodge of real faces, silhouettes, and horrible looking zombie regens. But, it turns out it's easy to fix this yourself. I can't express how pleasant it is to have every face in the game replaced by a simple silhouette.
  14. If it's technically possible, there should be a customizable keyboard shortcut for changing the camera view during a match. For example, I usually watch with TV view but a few times during the match I want to take a quick peek at the 2D view, such as during set pieces to see how the opponent is lined up, or sometimes to switch the view to close so I can better see something that just happened. It would be nice if I could just hit a key and see the 2D view or close view, then hit another key to go back to TV view. The way it is now, it's such a hassle, for example, to click the gear icon, carefully scroll down to camera, scroll the drop down the menu to select 2D from a list of about 20 options, take a quick look at the 2D view, then go back and click the gear icon, carefully scroll down to camera, scroll the drop down menu back to TV, and clicking the field to get back to the game. All the clicking and scrolling through multiple drop down menus really interrupts the flow of the game, so much that usually it's not even worth it. Being able to switch views by typing one key would be much, much better.

    Loans vs Transfers

    The permanent guys should have better tactical familiarity and cohesion. If you have half a team of loanees, they're going to have trouble playing together for a while even if their attributes are better.
