  1. Interested in anybody else's experience of playing FM16 on a SP4. I took delivery of my new SP4 (i7, 16GB RAM) last week and it is superb apart from one issue. The fan sounds like an Airbus A380 at takeoff despite monitoring CPU and RAM utilisation and neither really being too taxing. When I load up FM16 and load a game, the fan kicks in. I have monitored specs during this process which is obviously intensive and I can understand but if I leave it to settle then CPU drops to 10-20% and memory is constant at 33%. However, the fan remains at full blown takeoff speed. Having raised this with Microsoft Support, the lovely member of staff told me it is normal and then disappeared when I queried their Returns Policy. I'm on the verge of sending this back (it might even fly back by itself) but I thought I would question the superior knowledge of the community here first.
  2. Well just wow. It has taken me a week but I have finally come to the end of this thread and wanted to say a massive thanks to all those who have contributed. I have played FM for years like the majority of people but had found it daunting recently due to the size and my ability to play in short bursts only. Having read this thread I have blasted through an opening season trying to apply the principles to Wolves with some promising results. I have managed to steal a 15 year old striker from Blackburn for just 500k and he starts for England U19s already. The only issue is his 'Argues with officials' ppm but at just 15 I am going to work on his personality to try and unlearn it. In short, thanks to Cleon and all, you have single handedly reinvigorated my love for FM!

  4. Thanks rlipscombe. Looking forward to the challenge. So far I'm a month in and my team was awful through preseason. Following an opening 3-0 loss, I have now won 3 in a row keeping clean sheets in all. Time will tell how long this lasts though. I see the challenge was completed last year with RB Leipzig though so it is definitely doable!
  5. RasenBallsport Leipzig This is the start of my first ever attempt at this challenge. After playing FM12 casually for a few months, I have decided to dip my foot into a challenge like this. In previous years I have always attempted dafuge's challenge and felt like a change this year. So after waiting 30 minutes for the year to holiday, I was pleased to see Redbull's foray into German football appear in 3. Fussball-Liga. The club was founded in May 2009 after Redbull bought out the playing licence of fifth division side SSV Markranstädt. It is the aim of Redbull to appear in the Bundesliga inside 10 years. The aims of the corporation fully coincide with the aims of the new manager. They will play their homes games in the newly renamed Redbull Arena with a lofty capacity of 44,345. The club has average training facilities, average youth facilities, adequate junior coaching and above average junior recruitment. With some decent facilities in place and a good level of financial backing, I thin kthis could be an enjoyable journey. With a lack of history at the club and no Leipzig based football club having won the top football league in Germany since 1913, I intend to restore some pride to eastern Germany.

  6. Its simple business surely? If you are actively trying to sell a commodity then the interested clubs will see that you want rid and will take advantage by offering their value or less. If you weren't trying to sell, then they would recognise this and offer above their value in an attempt to sway you. The same applies to buying players, if a team doesn't want to sell, you have to pay above what they are worth but if they are listed you can usually get them on the cheap.
  7. Fair enough, then I shall just proceed to berate my player for being an idiot and costing me the win!
  8. During a game, the ball was played forward to the opposition left winger, my right back made a standing tackle, won the ball and the winger fell over. My right back then turned to play the ball across the defence only to seemingly trip over the prone left winger. The left winger then gets up and runs off with the ball. Now, either my player is stupid enough to just trip over a player lying on the floor or it is a bug. And surely, if that happened in a real game of football, the ref would have given a foul on the left winger?
  9. I managed to sign the following on free transfers at the end of the first season: Robert Acquafresca - Good striker from Italy Sergio Canales - Attacking midfielder from Spain Jonathan de Guzman - Another attacking midfielder this time from Holland Sofiane Feghouli - Needs no introduction really! Luc Castaignos - Dutch youngster who can play up front or in midfield. Anthony Nelson - This guy is an absolute beast! I signed him for 55k from MK Dons and he is amazing. Can play midfield, right wing, in the hole and up front. If you can get him I recommend him highly!
  10. Just got to the start of my second season and as I go to select my team for the first game, I notice that I have 2 players suspended for 1 game after receiving 5 yellow cards. It may be my ignorance but I thought these bans got wiped at the end of each season?
  11. The button press method is good although if you select a substitute and try to move them into the starting lineup using that method, the player they are replacing does not swap with them and take their place on the subs bench as I would expect. Maybe this could be a good improvement?
  12. Wolves: Sam Vokes, Stefan Maierhoffer, George Elokobi and David Jones are all missing.
  13. It could be your resolution stopping the screen from showing. Try adding -windowed to the shortcut by right clicking and going to properties. Then where it says Target: add -windowed after the last " so it should read something like fm10.exe" -windowed at the end of the box. This will force FM10 to open in a resizable window.
  14. I've got my 2013/14 update from League One coming up tomorrow I think I got more points than midgetram but not quite as many goals, however I got a Spanish striker on 1st January and he managed to come 2nd top scorer in the division!
  15. I'm looking set for 3 straight promotions now. 30 games into League Two and the Urchins lead the way on 72 points. 2nd placed Aldershot are on 55 and 4th place (top non-automatic promotion position) is Bournemouth on 53. So essentially I have a lead of 19 points on them. That isn't even taking into consideration my GD of +55. Next best is +17! Now all I need is some form of stadium upgrade. 3000 just won't cut it anymore!!!
