  1. Ishu, Thanks for the repsonse. Just to clarify. If i was to upgrade the Ram would i be able to run a lot more leagues or is it my processor that holds me back for this?
  2. i bought the hp dv7-4050ea and wondered what i can expect to load on fm. I have had a pretty decent laptop for a while but the star system always seemed to undervalue my spec in my opinion so I cannot rely on it really. I want to start a new game but rather than trying to try out different load outs was hoping someone may have some idea on what I could aim for to start with. Processor: AMD Phenom II P920, clocked at 1.6GHz, 2MB L2 cache; Screen: 17.3in (1600 x 900) glossy LED-backllit LCD display; OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit; HDD: 500GB 2.5in 7200rpm SATA HDD; RAM: 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 RAM; Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with 1GB memory and ATI HD 4250 integrated graphics.

  4. Slightly off topic but still part of adding things to the game. I would like the option to be a player/manager...I know we can kind of do it by creating yourself in the editor and i know if is much rarer these days to see them but having myself as a player so I can pick myself would be pretty cool i think. Doesnt detract from the game and could add more diverse reations in the team. Players may feel that you are picking yourself over other, perhaps better players becuase you can etc. Also the son feature should be expanded so that players can have a go if you favour him over better players. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but would be a nice touch i think.
  5. yeah i keep a flat 4-4-2 normally. I do normally play more rigid on away games...maybe that upsets the flow of the team as i normally play fluid. Do you ever change from the default settings other than the default player role settings??
  6. thanks for this, i will take a look. However I was also hoping to get some tips so i can create my own tactics. I have home tactics sorted i think just not away ones.
  7. Can someone possibly give me any tips on playing away. I have read the new tactics theories and tried my best but put simply I cannot win away. I have done pretty well at home with Spurs but im sitting low in the table just because I never win away, in fact I never draw either just lose. Any advice or assistance on what I should/could be looking to do with my tactics would be a big help.
  8. oh of course I am not saying SI have done anything wrong on that front, far from it I think. We all know that football fans have short memories and boards care about business and success. But for longer term games it feels (for me at least) a little less rewarding knowing that it does not matter what we do for long term games.
  9. and where was all your confidence bars set? Was your job security at the average setting still or was you very safe (or whatever the very safe setting is called)
  10. exactly...but imagine if we (in the game) have the success of any of those managers, or take a club from lower leagues to champions league. In previous versions (including fm09) it did not matter how much success you had. All the confidence bars seem to reset and all past achievements forgotten. You never really get to become legendary like wenger, moyes or ferguson. That was a problem for me and several other people I remeber reading about, and that is what I want to know about in the new version.
  11. Is there a new feature this year? Or is that the same Job Security thing thats been in for a while. If so then that is where the problem is I think. Maybe I am not explaining myself correctly.
  12. I have been assured that mine is waiting at my house when I get home. I ordered mine on 11th October I think. I have heard many other people saying they have received theirs though.
  13. No eddi I understand that side of things. What I am concerned with is how in previous editions of FM it seemed that they would forget your past glories or failures and it would be, in essence, like you was starting the game from the start again. For example. If someone takes over Manchester United after Alex Ferguson leaves then they will never be given the time that Alex would be given if they went on a bad run, based on the fact that Alex Ferguson had done so much for the club. In previous versions I could have had 10 years success and then a few bad games and I would be out. I want to know if that is now included that they remember what has happened before.
  14. Has anyone got any comments for this yet please. I am really interested on what people have seen on this side of thing.
  15. Ha, i figured that you would say that. I do wonder though if there are more goals because that is what is starting to happen...be interesting to see if it continues in later seasons for people. I guess it is down to tactics but if it is happening to all teams (even computer managed vs. computer managed) then it cannot just be our tactics. Plus it is not happening to everyone so it is not a major bug...should be more exciting with more goals!
