  1. I have never offered trials to players nor did my HOYD as far as I know, because there wasn't any emails regarding that.
  2. Bug has happened again, this time before the transfer window in December. Young player, but did not receive any email from my HOYD or anything related to it until the transfer had to be confirmed. I've uploaded the save files related to the issue under the names, ManUnited_pre-transfer, ManUnited_transferpending and ManUnited_transferconfirm. The screenshot was taken at the latter save point. All save points were made before matches.
  3. I'm afraid I've advanced far too much already so I don't have a previous save point anymore. But then again, it'd be hard to assume if the problem will happen again because of its random nature. But it does happen during transfer windows, that I can be sure. If it does happen in the future transfer windows, I'll update here.
  4. I've been experiencing this bug where random players I've not looked at were under transfer bid made by the club I'm managing. As shown in the screenshot, the player who was a free agent rejected an offer from the team I'm managing. However, I made no such offer in the first place. Nothing showed up regarding his name in the transfer center and there was no email saying that my Head of Youth Development made an offer for him. I have my HOYD set to make offers for young players and often I get notified through email. But not for this player. The reason I'm bringing this up is, I've experienced this bug in my previous Bayern Munich save as well, where offers were being made for players that I didn't consider at all. At the start of any save, I always make sure I'm in charge and adjust the responsibilities for incoming transfers bar youth players. The bug seems to focus on first team players I'm assuming, since if it was a youth players or youngster, I would've been notified.
  5. The text in the Happiness section doesn't seem to be synchronized and there's always a faded underlap of text when scrolling. I'm not sure if anyone else has pointed it out but thought I'd bring attention to it anyway.
  6. Greatly appreciate the suggestion, Neil. Haven't been able to play much and yet to try it in the afternoon when the weather is scorching here but early signs show that it's improved. I had to reduce the render quality to very low and all other graphic settings to the lowest possible, which has resulted in a decrease in temperature by around 10 degrees although with the odd spike every now and then back up to the 85-90 degrees region. I'm, however, curious in the underlying cause of menu lag, especially when viewing squad or tactics. Many people with much better processors, much higher RAM or amazing graphics cards all seem to have the same problem.
  7. I'm too having performance issues even in the menus which fluctuates from time to time. I have SpeedFan installed and compared to FM17, on FM18 my laptop overheats up to at least 20 degrees more at close to 90 degrees. A big part of it could be that since there was a setting on FM17 where we could change the rendering mode, I had it on software, so it made things faster. I'd like to know what has happened to that setting or feature and why it was removed or yet to be implemented. I'm using Avast antivirus and have never had performance issues to this extent. I've attached my dxdiag but if the problem is with my laptop, I find it unacceptable as FM was never a program that required top end processing or graphics and it should never, especially since at the end of the day, it is solely a simulation program. And if there's nothing I can do to improve it then I'd be very disappointed. DxDiag.txt
  8. I will add both. Hopefully it doesn't happen again. Thanks for the feedback on this issue.
  9. I see, so I guess I got unlucky with that save then. But I excluded FM in my antivirus though ?
  10. I just so happened to save over it before I realized this issue, so I don't have a backup save. But if I remember correctly, it seemed to be fine just a few weeks ago in game. Could you explain how it got corrupted ? First time this has happened even though I've had my antivirus on the whole time, other saves weren't affected.
  11. Yes, Avast. Antivirus was running but FM was excluded. No scans were made while the game was running.

  13. Indeed I was referring to the tactic you devised. I'm currently using support wingers in a possession tactic so far and it seems to be alright.
  14. Cleon, what are your thoughts on using wingers on support duty in this system ?
