    NUFC for my sins :)
  1. Ahh cheers. I can live with the dodgy 3d just. Hopefully, FM2017 will be similar. Can you play quite smoothly with a couple of countries. I mainly use UK and maybe Germany and France. I suspect 2D will be good what about loading times and progression etc. Thanks
  2. Is it easy to upgrade ram on mac's. I know it is on normal laptops but never tried it on mac's? I7 + Ram + average graphic cards would allows low level 3d I think. Never Mind Googled it and I can add another 4GB (maxed up to 16GB but need no more than 8GB) Probaly need 2x4GB sticks.
  3. Not sure where to post this so aplogies if it's in the wrong place. My wife is ugrading her MacBook Pro in October when the new model comes out and she will hand me down her old model. The question is will it play FM2016 and for that matter FM2017 (though we do not know much about that yet). Specs: MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) Processor 2.0GHz IntelCore7 with6mb L3 cache 4GB DDR3 ram 500GB storage AMD Radeaon HD 6490M (256MB GDDR5) It is in excellent condition and hopefully will be able to run FM16 and 17. Any views on whethe rit can run FM2016? Cheers
  4. Never use commentary on it's own, especially with the other available options. Moved on from that a long time ago: as my imagination lost it's way! Must be something to do with my spatial awareness or lack thereof. Commentary coupled with 3D is what I mainly use. Whilst mainly using 3D, could they improve on 2D? I find the little dots/discs or whatever they are, to uninspiring to look at. But I see the logic in saying that it is better to see how the game/teams play out. Not that 3d is overwhelming but I like the idea of seeing the players play! Also, If I could see a link between the new prozone and the 2d/3d, in that you can pin point weak areas and watch them play out: that would help me gain a deeper understanding. Currently it confuses me as I am not that savvy on prozone interpretation. As always looking forward to FM.....
  5. Amazing rash and generalised statements from you young man. I and my old mates play it on 3D. if you are intending to dislike it that much you will save yourself a few pennies. But please do not speak on my behalf, stick to your own opinions (very valid) and useful but do not presume to speak on behalf of the community.
  6. Going through the video frame by frame there is some good stuff in there. From the data analysis to the coaching badges to the formation information and so on. Look forward to more information on the changes, and it looks like the media stuff has been given an overhaul, though I like dealing with the media. Would love to see conversation changes re additions with the players and the team e.g. I play a rotation game, get used to it or tell why you do not like it. I think the critisms are a bit harsh as the game is what it is and I am not sure what drastic changes can be made unless you had a pure 3D type of live action but that would mean a lot of processing and probably would not work as well as the current 3d. Onward and upward
  7. That's the other great unknown - the fickle nature:one day your spending too much, the next day thats ok, my brothers love football! Sometimes you have to take it day by day. I always find that a giving her glass of fizzy and some choccies, her fav programme on a Friday night helps. Gives you credit in the FM bank during the following week. Though depending on her mood that credit can last or go quickly - sigh.

  9. Hi all Just a quick question or idea depending on if I got this right or not. I would like at the start of a season, when holding a team meeting, indicate a few things to the team. 1. My or Board's philosophy 2. My style of playing 3. My intentions on team rotation The first two are easier to deal with as players tend not to comment on them. However, it does get galling when you get a stream of players that you have to pacify every month. This is because there are not getting enough games (whatever that means), they are thinking that they are not in your plans and so on. If you could say that you run a rotation system, then surely that would cut down the amount of man management issues you have to deal with. Generally, not a big problem, if you choose the right response, but if they know at the start of the season, then maybe they can express an opinion on how they view that particular aspect. They either accept it or question it. Not sure how you would incorporate that into FM but might had a bit more frisson(!) to the exchange between you and the players. Certainly if they are designated key or first then I would expect knocking at my door. Just a thought, would be interested in your views guys.
  10. Did not FM Touch come free last year with the PC version, regardless of pre-order or purchase? I have just checked my steam copy and it appears to be free and I know that I did not pre-order or pre-purchase FM2016 last year!
  11. I am that 64 year old. Played nearly every iteration and still think the game kicks! What is just as interesting has been the amazing debates and discussions on this forum, heated or otherwise, with FM luminaries from Cleon to www to us mere punters. I remember the great FMBritain debate, over charging for third party bits and pieces, that was heavy. Along with some fantastical tactical and strategical debates and disagreements. This forum used to burn hot at times. May it continue to do so.
  12. This All games apart from this one generally tell you what is going to be in the game re new features or a hint at the features - this yearly we will tell you nearer the day and only if ..is old fashioned and quite frankly a bad marketing ploy.
  13. I am 64 and still play nearly every iteration of the game. Your never too old!!!
  14. Cheers will give that ago.
  15. HI I have downloaded the database. However, unlike FM17where you would expect a tweaking of expectations of certain players to reflect the current situation, I am in the midst of having to deal with multi bids for all my ex-premier players, unlike the current situation. Keep getting offer after offer and the players as you would expect want to go. But will keep trying to see who I can keep before the season starts.
