  1. I thought this may be something they wanted us to know about, given Miles communicated about the projects on twitter... am surprised no one else has asked about it, so far
  2. My longest save is my current one, which I am still playing using FM17.  I started as manager of Bishops Stortford (my local team) in the National League South, with the hope of this being a one club save where I would take them to the top. Unfortunately, by December of the first season I had been sacked, this was incredibly frustrating given the amount of research and preparation I had done, to try and ensure success.  I then was appointed Chelmsford City manager in the same division and to be honest I haven't looked back since, I have had 3 successful promotion campaigns (2 via the Play-offs) and won the FA Trophy, which now sees me sitting in the Sky Bet League 1, where we currently sit in the play off places when expected to fight bravely against relegation  It's been really enjoyable building the team up and rising through the divisions and as I was so heavily invested in the save and hadn't played as much as previous versions (my first baby came along), I decided to skip buying FM18 to continue this career.  In the past season or so, I have started to pretty regularly get approached by Championship level clubs, which ultimately I have refused to attend an interview for. However, I am unsure if a Premier League side were to come in for me, whether I could/should resist - would be interested to hear what people think I should do in that situation???
  3. Hi, is there anyone out there that knows anymore about these two new projects?
  4. Hi All I was really interested to see Miles on twitter talking about two upcoming projects that SI are working on. One called "Project Yuka" and another being referenced as being Soft Launched ahead of the World Cup. I see that these two new projects were talked about after an update about Football Manager Online, no longer being worked on by SI, so wondered if these two new projects may well be some form of MMO mode for Football Manager, or just pure coincidence Also would be nice to know more about the two projects specifically, or when we might hear more Many thanks
  5. Apologies if this is a silly question, if someone went into a store and bought me FM18 for Christmas, would that boxed version come with a Steam Code and or a CD/DVD? as my Mac does not have a CD/DVD drive... so want to ensure it will have a Steam Code in it, in order to activate and play the game. Do they need to ask for a specific type of boxed version?
  6. I noticed SI games are recruiting for someone to work on FM Online. Just wondered after 3 odd years since releasing in South Korea and then China, just how much closer we are to it either being released here in the UK, or the online model within the normal Football Manager game here in the UK, having a proper online ranking/league game infrastructure (other than the draft mode) Even some feedback on how the game has done in South Korea/China would be interesting
  7. I undestand thx! i guess I will just have to take a end of season screenshot to refer to
  8. I understand they do not count in overall career stats in terms of totals, however I find it odd that the non competitive data is completely lost?
  9. Hi All I wonder if someone could help me please, for my u18 players, I have no non-competitive career history for previous seasons This is something I would ideally be able to view, could anyone help please?
  10. I see the FM18 System Requirements for Mac state the below Graphics Cards: Cards equal to or better than the following: Intel GMA X4500 NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 My Video Card/Graphics is a HD Graphics 5000, is that equal or better than the Intel GMA X4500? Should I be okay and not need to upgrade my laptop for FM18? Thanks for any advice
  11. Ah ok so the System Requirements HAVE been released also, albeit just on steam Perfect thanks
  12. Thanks Hunter, something worth bearing in mind then, assume System requirements will be released before pre-order discount offer, is over?
  13. Out of interest, have the system requirements been released? If not, obviously that is something worth waiting for, before pre-ordering, if the risk is it could be diferent
  14. Anyone bought from hidevolution.com, International sellar?
  15. Hi Guys Irrelevant of budget what would you recommend, considering all of the below wish list of wants and needs: * Best for being Lightweight & Size (compact) - ideally < or = to 15" screen.... * Best at not running hot under load (not burning my lap when playing) * Best for Graphics on 3d Match Engine -(Nvidea graphics card etc) * Running Many Leagues * SSD Drive * Minimum 16GB * Best possible i7 Chip Having looked what's out there myself the Gigabyte Aero 14 below looks the best out there... but would anyone else have any thoughts as to what might be better??? AERO 14 (i7-7700HQ) 14" Color Available: Black/Green/Orange NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 GDDR5 6GB 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Processor 94.24Wh Huge Battery Capacity for Full-Day Productivity Only 19.9mm Slim, 1.89kg Lightweight Unique Aesthetics with All Aluminum Robust Body Slim and Light Adapter with USB Charging Port QHD IPS Wide Viewing Angle Display Blazing-fast M.2 PCIe Gen3 X4 SSD: Reach 2000MB/s (optional) USB 3.1 Type-C: 10Gbps / 5V 3A HDMI 2.0: Ultra HD 4K 60Hz Output DDR4 2400MHz – Up to 32GB Dolby Digital Plus™: Surround Sound Anywhere, Everywhere Thanks for any suggestions in advance
  16. Out of interest if I were to add additional leagues to my game as "View Only", would I then be able to apply for jobs in those leagues, which would then become "Playable" if I took that job in a different league?
  17. I think this is a brilliant bit of analysis. Personally though I believe SI need to and will concentrate on making more of the "Fantasy Draft" game mode, via a more multiplayer ranking/league system to then make "e-sports" for FM a distinct possibility
  18. Hi All/SI I just wondered if there was any news/update as to how the game is going in Korea and whether SI are exploring yet, rolling this game out to other countries (England)? Many thanks
  19. Football Manager Live was a great concept and the best version of the game I have ever played and despite that not and still not being a viable model, I believe Sports Interactive could and should now improve the possible online modes to incorporate some kind of formal online structure.  This could be along the lines of the Fifa Ultimate Team concept, with a rank etc through to more detailed online league structure.  Currently I believe, the online modes of draft/online games are limited unless you have a group of pre-defined mates you know etc and in the generation and take up of "e-gaming" it would be great to know that this is something Sports Interactive are at least looking at
  20. Hi Guys I have posts from the game to Twitter, for significant news set to "Automatic" but ever since I have started my save, I have not had one update posted, Now I know what your thinking, well maybe you haven't achieved/done anything significant, but I have won the Play-off Final out of the Conference South Any ideas on how to get this working, would be much appreciated
  21. Hi All I wonder if anyone could help me, during a match the Match Action Bar, used to auto-hide now it is fixed and I literally cannot find where to change this? Funnily enough, I haven't changed that option, so not sure why it has changed - only change to preferences was changing Rendering Mode to "Software" I have also checked the online menu, and where I suggests to find it in preferences under match/In match preferences, it isn't even there. Any help would be very much appreciated
  22. I will take that if he is dropping down to me at Conference South level! Hoping he will do a job!
