  1. Hi Fewz, Thanks for the save game and feedback. This looks to be an odd issue that we will investigate further in order for the development team to investigate further. It looks like something could be potentially going wrong when the user has future club move lined up whilst also an international manager. Do you happen to have another save from before you agreed to join West Ham at the end of the season? Cheers, Ben
  2. Thanks for the feedback. We will look to reproduce this issue internally and get it logged for the development team to investigate further. Cheers, Ben
  3. Hi Chris, Thanks for the feedback. If you upload your save game we will be able to take a look at your save and look to see if the slow down reproduces for us and if so what the cause could be. Details on how to upload a save game can be found via the link below. Cheers, Ben
  4. Thanks for the feedback. If you have a save game where this issue can be be seen could you please upload it to our FTP. Once you have uploaded the save could you also let us know the names of a couple of the players you are encountering this problem with? Details on how to upload a save game can be found via the link below. Cheers, Ben
  5. Hi Comets 10, The player will need to have attained 5 senior caps in order for him to be registered. Has the player now attained 5 senior caps is the player able to be registered now? Cheers, Ben
  6. Thanks for the feedback. Are the club you are trying to buy the player from also in continental competition? If so then this would be the reason they can reject the offer. If the club were not in continental competition then the minimum fee release clause should be able to be activated. Cheers, Ben
  7. By choosing this combination of rep and past playing experience this has given you a very large reputation and a very high. Both reputation and CA are much higher than the level of Doncaster, this is the main contributory factor as to why you are receiving so many job offers. The number of offers does seem excessive though. Cheers, Ben
  8. The clubs may have wage budget available, but possibly only a small amount. Depending on how many players the clubs in question are looking to sign then they will designate a proportion of wage budget to each potential signing. As you are actively looking to sell this player, then this will increase the likelihood of the AI asking for some sort of wage contribution from you. You raised this issue in the below thread the other day to which I responded. There is no need to open multiple threads on the same issue.
  9. Thanks for the feedback. As Dzajo has mentioned this appears to be a similar issue to what he has reported previously. I'm trying to get a save where this reproduces so we are can look into this further. Cheers, Ben
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Could you please confirm what past playing experience you had selected when creating the manager? It looks like you would have set yourself as an ex international footballer. It also appears you have given yourself the highest coaching badge possible. If you could confirm that is the case then that would be great. Cheers, Ben
  11. @Dzajo5 Thank you very much for the feedback and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. If you have a save game from just before the negotiation of both a percentage of next sale and profit of next sale clause is added into transfer negotiations then could you please upload a save game to our FTP. From there we will look into the problem further. Details on how to upload a save game to our FTP can be found via the link below. Cheers, Ben
  12. Thanks for the feedback. On the players Transfer Status page what has been set for the 'When a transfer offer is received'? Is or has the player in question ever been on the development list at the club? Cheers, Ben
  13. Hi Preveza, Thanks for the feedback. I agree this behaviour does not sound ideal and would like to think the AI would show a bit more planning in their contract renewals than what you have described above. We will look to reproduce this issue internally in order to see if this is a common issue. Cheers, Ben
  14. The AI will use the Wage Contribution clause if the club are low on available wage budget. If the club have a low amount of wage budget available then they will ask the user if they could contribute towards the players wages, the AI should only use the wage contribution clause when approaching to sign players who are transfer listed. Well that is what this clause is trying to address. Previously when the AI couldn't afford a transfer or wages for a player they would not make a bid. This then lead to complaints from users that it was too hard to sell unwanted players, this clause has helped in that regard. Not sure if I have misunderstood your point here, but the user can ask the AI to contribute towards wages when making an offer. This can be found under Additional Clauses when making an offer.
  15. Hi Dylanh, Thanks for the feedback. This isn't an issue we have seen reported previously, or something that we have encountered internally. When negotiating the transfer how many rounds of negotiations take place before the deal is accepted with the agreed 50% of next transfer fee clause? Cheers, Ben
