  1. Thanks - yes, I have done some bloodthirsty deleting. I now have 150 gB more space. And the current save is intact. Thanks again S
  2. Thanks Tony Where would it be in finder? Wait! Found it - there appear to be 20 gB of games...Let me see what I can d by deleting most of these except the current one. OK> Found it. I have deleted the games under games. But under "cloud" there are - wait for it! - 139gB of games. If I delete these it would seem to solve the problem. but will that cause a problem syncing with cloud saves? That's where I thought my saves were going. Thanks for your help on this. S
  3. Thanks Kyle - I don't use any add-ons. I use manual saves between games, but I don't how many I have. How would I check that?
  4. I am having a problem with storage on Football manager 20. My laptop has been showing 'disk almost full" which I took up with Apple - It's a 2015 MacBook Air. During an online chat with an Apple rep, he identified the Football Manager folder in the Library as containing over 160gB. He advised that I take it up with Steam, which I did. Over a number of exchanges they advised deleting Caches and Preferences from the Library, which I did, and which had little effect. I also removed earlier versions of the game which did remove about 20gB, but the disk is still filling up. Steam have now advi
  5. A few points, not to be argumentative. First, having played the game for less time than some (the last five iterations) it seems to me that the match engine is whack-a- mole: every time they fix something we complain about, something else pops up. It's also a sort of Schrodinger's cat whack a mole in that not everyone agrees - i have seen people going on for years about how it's too easy to score from crosses, while my personal experience is different, for example. Secondly, I played the game more because of lockdown, and found it easier to get frustrated by the patterns and shortcomings.
  6. Or even when you look at their attributes, and it definitely is a weakness.
  7. The overstuffed inbox, and advice which is pointless and inept.. There are far too many pieces of largely misleading information and suggestions - moving players from one mentoring group to another (for players in another position); suggestions about tactics when tactics are working perfectly; discouraging traits that players are good at; the constant suggestions to "improve the quality" of the coaching/scouting team with people who have worse attributes than what you have... I think 90% of the unsolicited advice given (mostly in the inbox, but sometimes in-match) could be jettisoned with
  8. That's fair enough. I just worry about spending a lot of time playing through a speculative version of what is going to happen. I'd rather they delayed a new release for a year until everything is more stable.
  9. Good point, but just how much alteration of the game would that entail?
  10. I don't see what enjoyment is to be derived from releasing a version of the game which reflects lengthy hiatuses in the game, empty stadiums, social distancing etc.. At worst, given the uncertainty of when restrictions will cease or how the pandemic will play out, it would be incredibly tasteless. There's a difference between the changes in schedule for the staging of the Qatar World Cup, or the regulations round player registration surrounding Brexit, and this. I want to play a football games escapism, not to navigate speculation about a world health crisis.
  11. I usually notice a mid-season dip, even with a team who are used to hoovering up the prizes. can't say I've had too many drubbings. I usually react by dropping under performers, and I've changed training to take account of eg conceding too many from corners. I find that defensive measures seem to have much more effect than attacking changes - but I suspect that's because there seems to be a fairly universal epidemic of strikers missing 80% of even the simplest chances.
  12. There are certain players who regardless of their squad status and the amount of playing time never seem to cheer up. I had Harry Kane, who was permanently "concerned" even when he was playing every game. Until you left him out for one game, and then he was "alienated." I have three midfielders - two squad players, one regular starter, all have been concerned for two seasons, again regardless of playing time. The squad status thing is a great idea, but it seems to me to need a little refinement.
  13. Good point. Confirmation bias often makes one think that your intervention is what is making the difference, especially when it seems to have a negative effect. I think you're right in that you have to look past of being something being broken or bugged.
  14. I've had David DeGea win POM once. And deservedly. But generally, yes, the ratings are depressed. More notably though, a keeper who performs heroics in a penalty shootout never gets a cherry on top. If missing a penalty can depress ratings unrealistically, then saving one in the 90 mins or in a shootout deserves a big uptick.
