  1. FM18 - Who will you manage?

    Until the lower league database is up and running I'll have a play around with Newcastle but won't properly get into a save until the database is done, or maybe start off in conference north / south but I like to start as low as possible.
  2. 2 things I'd like to see are a camera angle from the dugout and when you create your manager say what position he used to play. The camera I think would add a great deal of realism to the game and if you say your manager was a defender then the defense training stat would increase quicker, or something like that. Nothing too fancy just 2 little cosmetic changes I'd be happy to see.
  3. [WIP] E22 - England to Level 22

    It will probably depend on your finances. If the money's there to go semi-pro then you could change at any time although there may be divisions lower than 11 that are amateur clubs only.
  4. Enjoying it so far mate, will get an update up when I get in from work. Am in January first season so not done much yet.
  5. [WIP] E22 - England to Level 22

    Sounds like you're running another database alongside this 1 bro I had the same issue so unticked the other database I had going and problem solved.
  6. I wouldn't hold your breath mate, they won 't overhaul the whole game from top to bottom no way. I reckon they'll be the subtle changes to the ME and interface but the transfer system whats your beef with that?

    I'd say any laptop would be good for a game that old

    I've got this laptop last week and although its a grand it plays FM absolutely perfectly. Got loads of leagues loaded,large database and all graphics set to full in match. I watch matches in 2D anyway but if 3D's your thing this will run brilliantly. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-msi-ge62-7re-apache-pro-28ghz-core-i7-7700hq-8gb-ram-128gb-ssd-plus1tb-hdd-geforce-4gb-gtx-1050t
  9. You're not the only one mate! The amount of times I've started a save with an idea in mind just to restart again. I've actually restarted this challenge at least 4 ties, currently on with this and am in Wales so hopefully may actually get somewhere with it this time.
  10. Well I just bought a gaming laptop that straight from the box is faulty so that's getting sent back I was going to restart AGAIN but will continue with the save I just did start for now on my current older laptop. All being well will actually get somewhere with this!

    I went for this laptop in the end amte:- https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-msi-ge62-7re-apache-pro-28ghz-core-i7-7700hq-8gb-ram-128gb-ssd-plus1tb-hdd-geforce-4gb-gtx-1050t What kind of spec would you need to run a lot of league and a large database? With the laptop I got I want to run a fair few as I never have run more than 3 leagues at a time on my current non gaming laptop.
  13. I think it's laughable people are actually moaning about a discounted game. All SI have done is say right lads fm18 is out in November and we'll give you 25% discount for buying it before then. I've had every FM / CM game since CM99/01 and even if they said FM 18 is jus going to have updated squads I'd still buy it so a discount on buying a game early that I'm going to be buying anyway well it's a win win.

    Hey man I'm going to be getting a gaming laptop and am thinking about this one: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/173-asus-rog-gl753vd-gc082t-core-i5-7300hq-2gb-gtx-1050-12gb-ram-128gb-ssd-plus-1tb-hdd-dvdrw-window Will it run fm17 okay and I assume 18 will be okay if it will run 17. Iv never had more than a few leagues loaded and want to run a lot of leagues and players so taking the splurge and going for a gaming laptop. Other games I wanna play too are things like Sims 3/4 and Rome total war type games. Thanks for your help mate.
  15. Cool cheers mate!
