  1. So when you win, is that you or is that the game imposing its narrative that your team is going to win now? I'd hate to think all my achievements in this game were based on the game determining a narrative in which my team were to win the champions league this season and it not having anything to do with the decisions I make.
  2. By 2024 you've not had enough time in game for any improvements begin filtering through but the game does, to an extent, allow for the uplifting of nations. Arguably one of the bigger challenges you can take on in FM because you need to be in the league itself and also doing things that would encourage your domestic rivals to better themselves and be more competitive on the European stage too. If you've got 6-8 domestic teams with top training facilities and given decent accounts of themselves in Europe you'll find that the players will be produced at a higher level over time. But this is
  3. Human error on my behalf, somewhere down the line I'll have missed his transfer to the club. I'll look to get him added moving forward.
  4. There isn't really much benefit in steam trying to deceive you about what is going wrong launching it there. It's based on Total War Attila but the recommendation I saw for steam error code 41 was: - Restart PC - Disable antivirus - Right click steam & run as administrator - Verify game cache
  5. Hi gf_bay, I replied to your topic on the general discussion board. As there are people set as this it would be best to continue the conversation on general discussion to better understand what's going on with your game.
  6. If only Stoke were still in the premier league @XaW :P Although I fired up a quick new save just to check something hadn't gone wrong with the data as I haven't changed anything for a few years. @gf_bay Banks, Matthews and Waddington pretty much speak for themselves and go without saying. Neil Baldwin is in as recognition for the fact he's had a pretty spectacular journey as a Stoke fan and even managing a stint as kit man. Doubt anyone outside of the club and Stoke fans are aware of him, but within the club and among fans he's well known. With most current/recent players I tend
  7. Games are less important at younger ages, but game time at an appropriate level is still helpful to development. To the best of my knowledge, there isn't a distinction between involved in match-day squad and not players for training. So if he's not involved in the U18 games then he's likely getting 3 days of that week in which the training schedule is reduced account for the day before, the day of and day after the game. Generally it is advisable to sign more players from the intake but you need to be keeping an eye on it and potentially cutting loose those who aren't developing.
  8. FM Touch is very much moving in the direction of standing alone away from the FM game, so it comes down to preference. At a guess FMT would normalise the things you can't control from the FM version of the game and provide a narrower scope in which those aspects have an impact. I had a couple of years almost exclusively playing Touch but Touch robbed me of where my greatest strengths lay in man management, identifying youngsters through targeted scouting and in developing players. Tactics were never my forte so I very much needed those other areas of the game to make my teams competitive
  9. For some clarification, I won't remove RDF's post because he's right his video was fine & which is why it's back visible in post https://community.sigames.com/forums/topic/548292-total-control/?do=findComment&comment=12984010 Videos may be hidden while they're under review by the mod team because of the nature of content we can't host on the forums. Where possible we do aim to keep videos up that are helpful and useful with tactics, which fair play to RDF, this one is.
  10. The research team don't set players expected playing time, or squad status. If you feel it's out of place it would be worth raising it as a bug.
  11. I've not got much knowledge in terms of if the editor is available through the MS store or how to get it. However, depending upon exactly what it is you're looking to do (there are quite a few limitations it imposes) there is a Create-a-Club option when starting up a new game. It may be worth checking that out and seeing if its what you're after until someone who knows a bit more comes along.
  12. I suppose it depends exactly when, considering a number of Man City's sponsorships could be in some way tied to their ownership you might have been seeing an inflated figure due to that. Or it could be other things. Stadium sponsorships when moving to a new ground can be very lucrative and dramatically inflate a clubs sponsorship revenue too.
  13. I'll be honest I can't really think of any particular patch cycle that is inherently exciting, as a patch cycle. When it comes to fixing bugs, the aim is always going to be to get them fixed but there can't be a set time scale on that from developers because resources are finite and some bugs will inevitably be a higher priority than others. Then again, even the highest priority of bug doesn't guarantee it gets fixed if you can't fix it, you can't fix it.
  14. I would argue that Cristiano Ronaldo ages better than any other player in the game, and has done for several years. He has the perfectionist personality. Driven, Iron Willed (very few of these knocking about mind), Model Citizen, Model Professional, Perfectionist, Professional, Resolute and Very Ambitious are all great and hugely positive indicators. Ambition is an indicator of how desperate a player is to want to get to the top, Professionalism is an indicator of how long they will likely remain at the peak, Determination is a little less specific in its influence but its always th
  15. It is luck of the draw, I left a player on not too long ago hoping to get to half time. The next tackle in on him finished him off for 3 months.
