  1. @Thib, is your graphics card overclocked? IIRC I used to get this error on an overclocked card, but as soon as I set it back to a profile with factory settings the crashes stopped happening.
  2. Just got around to trying this (I was away for a bit, sorry!). Unfortunately it didn't work. I still get the continuous ball tapping sound 2-3 times per match. The crowd sounds are also a bit strange too - sometimes my team will score a goal but the crowd will be quiet. During the replay, however, the crowd sound plays as it should. Lastly, sometimes the half-time and full-time whistles play twice or three in a row.
  3. I reported this bug about a week ago. I haven't been able to get on to try the suggested fix yet. See if it works for you.
  4. Hello, A couple of times per match I get a strange sound effect that sounds like a player kicking the ball several times in quick succession. Even out of possession the sound plays. I've not seen this mentioned anywhere on the forums, but I did see it mentioned on the Steam forums a few times: https://steamcommunity.com/app/1100600/discussions/0/1742260438160284431/ https://steamcommunity.com/app/1100600/discussions/0/1658943116244681671/ Is this a known issue? If so, is there any way to fix it? Cheers.
  5. Matt Simon is the captain of the Central Coast Mariners - not "Kim Eun-Seon"*. Also, Tommy Oar is a stand in for when Simon is unavailable. *Spelling mistake with name? Or an entirely different player? - It should be Kim Eun-Sun - not Kim Eun-Seon.
  6. kmtw, I live in Japan, and its not available in my steam store either. Usually, if it's not available in your store, even if you obtain a key elsewhere, Steam will likely not let you activate the game. I took a chance and bought it elsewhere knowing that this might happen. And it did. It will throw you an error message when you try to activate it. The way I activated it was through a VPN. I know it's not the best thing to do since there are rumours flying around about how your Steam account can be suspended, etc. but that didn't happen to me. Use at your own risk, obviously, but to be honest I wouldn't worry. The reason why is that if you buy FM16 from another site it'll likely be the RoW (Rest of the World) version and Steam will probably not target that. They look for Russian copies, etc. I can confirm that my version, upon activation, is indeed the RoW version. Also, after you activate it, you no longer need the VPN.
  7. In my opinion, the best way to stop cheating is to remember that you're missing out on some of the best experiences in FM by doing just that. By cheating (save-scumming, etc.) you'll...: - never experience a relegation battle - never find a way to break yourself out of mediocrity - never regret signings nor will you appreciate them as much - never get sacked and bounce back in another country (and then maybe return to the previous country in a higher league, giving a big middle finger to the team that sacked you in the first place) - never be relegated and have to rebuild your team with new players and perhaps a new philosophy - never get an understanding of the scouting system (which can be so rewarding once you find the right players) - never truly feel like you've accomplished something by using your own wits and instinct - etc. etc. Some people may see all of the above as purely frustrating and that's where the cheating begins. I can understand that. I used to be quickly disappointed with the way my first or second season was progressing in FM, so I used to delete the save and start again... and again... and again, until I finally thought this is silly - the whole point of the game is to get through these challenges. So I began a season saying to myself, "No matter what happens, I will not delete this save"... and I'm so glad I did. I've had some great highs, devastating lows, and everything in between.
  8. It's SEGA. It always has been (you only need to look at the range of games they've published and prevented selling throughout Asia). I know SI have nothing to do with it. SEGA are the only publisher I know that are Japanese and don't like to sell their products in Japan (and elsewhere in Asia). Maybe there are stricter laws in China, for example, that prohibits sales, but why would a Japanese publisher not sell their own products in Japan? Koei are quite happy to do just that. On top of that, previous FMs are available to buy on Steam without a problem. Cheers everyone. I looked at that other the other threads. Looks like I'll have to give someone my Steam account temporarily and have them buy it on my account to make this work.
  9. This is the first FM title that I can't purchase due to the region lock. I live in Japan and usually have no problems purchasing FM on Steam. However, this year I get the, "We apologize that we are not licensed to sell Football Manager 2016 in this territory", message from all sorts of online retailers including HumbleBundle and Steam. Gotta say I'm disappointed... I know Sega has a reputation for doing this (the Total War series is also unavailable for purchase in Japan), but for them to finally get their hands on FM which I pour hundreds of hours into - that's not cool. It might just be limited to Japan, or perhaps other Asian countries have been locked out too? Is there any way around this?
  10. I know that goalkeepers have been mentioned already, but it's their lack of smothering the ball that needs tweaking. During one-on-ones and rebounds (from both players and the woodwork) in particular, I've never seen the goalkeeper charge out and throw his body on the ball. Is this because there isn't an animation for this or have I not seen it yet?
