    FM19: Hidden Gems

    I paid $9m as Marselle at the end of the 2018/19 season

    FM19: Hidden Gems

    Is Jayden Bogle from Derby considered a hidden gem? He seems really good to me

    Move match screen buttons

    Hopefully this is easy - I wish to move the rewind/fast forward/previous highlight/next highlight/live buttons to the bar next to the quick sub button. How would I do that? I just think SI has put these buttons in a ridiculous spot. I want them to be in a more user friendly spot
  4. Took a while but just finished my first season. @nico_france post above will be my template for my season summary. SEASON 2018/2019 Second in the league. Had too many draws to seriously challenge, although I was only five points behind PSG for most of the season. Thauvin ended up on 19 goals from 33 matches to come in equal second on the golden boot. Mandanda had 17 clean sheets to win that award. TACTIC @nico_france tactic posted above. No tweaks but I think the defence needs a look at as I noticed they got hit over the top quite often. TRANSFERS OUTS I used the season to start my move for the future. Lots of spending and a few sales of players I thought could be better replaced. HUBOCAN - too old and wasn't used. Moved on. PELE - An able backup but I thought this spot could be better used on someont to take over from Mandanda. SARR - Not good enough to ever hold down the #1 right back spot. Moved on for a healthy fee. SERTIC - Another that was surplus to requirements. GUSTAVO - This one caused some issues in the dressing room. I thought a 32+ year old getting sold for £16.5m was too good to turn down. He was first team when he left but I needed to look forward, not backward. GERMAIN - Didn't play enough for my liking and doesn't really fit the tactic in my eyes. MITOGLOU - Was out of form and another 30+ year old. N'JIE - His loan includes a clause I hope is taken up. I don't see a spot for him anymore unfortunately. AMAVI - I didn't really want to sell him but I had faith in Rocchia being able to fill the void. The fee was enough to sway me. INS MORRIS - I don't think he will stay long with me but he was free. I will loan him out next season with a possibility to sell him. BROUGHTON - Looks the goods but only rated as a 3.5* potential player. A project player that if he works will be great but if he doesn't I will ship him off to England. TONALI - Really happy with this purchase. Will put pressure on Sanson for a CM role and will hopefully take over one day. MUMBA - Highly rated but I'm not sure if he will kick on. SOLANKE - After selling two strikers I needed a new targetman. My purchase options were limited so I went the loan route. Worked out well with 9 goals and 3 assists from 21 matches. DALOT - On a two year loan. Needed backup for Sakai while he was on Asian Cup duties. Sakai also came back injured so he got a fair few games. Did well enough. RAJKOVIC - not my first choice to come in as a backup but a good one nonetheless. He should develop into a #1 for me in the future. GRONLI - I see him as taking over from Payet in the next season or two. Might send him out on loan next season to develop. MARTINEZ - Thought £4.2m was cheap. Stats looked good so picked him up. He gives me options on the left wing and allows some flexibility if someone comes in with a big bid for a current left winger. Either him or Radonjic will get loaned out next season. Radonjic did end up taking Ocampos's place in the team at the end of the season. It will be a tightly fought race for the left wing role. ZAGADOU - Dortmund transfer-listed him. His heading is poor for a CB but he is young and French. The price was right. GAGLIARDINI - was transfer-listed and I hoped Inter would drop their price. They didn't but I wanted him as a rotation option with Strootman. I stumped up the money and am happy I did. He will be a star for me. OLSSEN - A Director of Football purchase. I approved it because I think I can profit from him. Will go on loan next season. PELLEGRINI - With only one left back I needed backup. PELLEGRINI surprised me and I may look to purchase him. COMPETITIONS LIgue 1 The objective this year was Champions League and I achieved that. I stayed the course with PSG most of the year but had a run of five matches with no wins that hurt. PSG were clearly the best side. Next season IO hope to knock them off the perch. French Cups Coupe de la Ligue I lost in the fourth round to Nimes. Was a bad loss but I was rotating a lot of players at this stage. Coupe de France I won in the final to St Etienne. Was a really good run but a lot of my best players were well overdue for a rest. Final score was 1-0 with Solanke scoring. EUROPA LEAGUE I was disappointed to get knocked out in the second knockout round but it was to Chelsea. I did top the group that included Arsenal though so not all bad. I have already made some purchases for next season. Hopefully I get a soft Champions League draw so I can advance without too much trouble.

    Crash on startup

    So it crashed again on 382.33. I've underclocked my card since then (it was at factory default) and no crashes since underclocking. I'll report back

    I dunno. Maybe something I changed sorted it out

    [FM19][MOD] Match Screen Mods

    Nope, just dropped the folder in. I had edited a couple of the files to show different screens but I doubt that did it as I don’t really know what I’m doing with xml

    [FM19][MOD] Match Screen Mods

    @michaeltmurrayuk I just put your 2018 version into FM19 and it remembers the formations/player ratings screen as user/AI rather than home/away as in the 2019 version. Is there a chance there is some code in the 2018 version that makes it work in FM19?

    It did with 391.35. I've rolled back to 382.33 and it was fine yesterday.

    Crash on startup

    Which version is from October? The last version I can see for the GeForce 670M is the March 27 2018 version (391.35). I checked on this page - https://www.geforce.com/drivers Incidently, I have re-installed windows and installed the 391.35 driver. If I can get past the Manger Man on the frontpage the game runs fine.

    There’s one from March this year. I’ve tried that and numerous others.

    DXDIAG attached There are two GT 670M's in the P370M's. They are default Crash dumps uploaded I'm pretty sure this is an issue between Windows 1 updates and the nVidia drivers. I thought I'd mention it here just in case it wasn't.

    Thanks mate. I’ll give that a go
  14. I'll preface this by saying I don't think this is a FM issue but I'll report it anyway. Since May/June I've been fighting the problem of Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered. It's taking me until last night to finally pinpoint the issue. When I start Football Manager 18 or Football Manager 19 the PC crashes and shuts down. I ran the game last night with no driver installed and it started but all the 3D images were choppy and lagged. This is to be expected with the basic Windows driver. To resolve this issue I've tried: - Adding TDR delay - multiple drivers after using DDU - Reinstalling Windows - Reinstalling games/Steam client Sometimes the issue went away, sometimes it didn't. I think the issue lies somewhere in a Windows update and a incompatibility with the driver. What is the best process to resolve this issue? Should I roll back Windows to an earlier version (i.e. reinstall and not update)? I am aware a lot of people have had this issue but I'm yet to find a fix for my machine. My system details are as follows: Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 15063) (15063.rs2_release.170317-1834) System Manufacturer: CLEVO System Model: P370EM BIOS: BIOS Date: 09/18/12 14:58:50 Ver: 04.06.05 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3840QM CPU @ 2.80GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8GHz Memory: 32768MB RAM DirectX Version: DirectX 12 Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Type: Full Device Device Problem Code: No Problem Driver Problem Code: Unknown Display Memory: 17853 MB Dedicated Memory: 1489 MB Shared Memory: 16363 MB Current Mode: 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz) Driver File Version: 22.21.0013.8233 (English) Driver Version: DDI Version: 11 Feature Levels: 11_0,10_1,10_0,9_3,9_2,9_1 Driver Model: WDDM 2.2 Graphics Preemption: DMA Compute Preemption: DMA
  15. You sir are a gem. It suits the side really well. I’ve had a few long term injuries (Sanson for 8 months, Sakai for 2 months) and Mitroglou out of form. Otherwise it is brilliant. OM is a really good save. Lots of good players although most are on the wrong side of 30 so you can be competitive but you need to replace them soon so it makes a nice challenging save in that respect
