  1. Do you mean when i save as i add png or jpg because i tried that already
  2. Hello not sure if this is the correct area for this request but seemed most likely but can someone either direct me to a current kit request forum or help me with this kit i have, i have found the Auxerre 02 Playstion kits but when saving them they are in giff and not jpeg so i won't show up in the game, can anyone hellp me?
  3. Does anybody have a link to a specific facepack for France as the general ones don't seem to have alot of the players particular the prospects, doesn't have to b 18/19 ill take anything
  4. How is Riccardo Mansueto, Bentivegna and Alastra on your game i play 17 and have done about 3 Palermo saves and they are all world class potential, Along with D,amico Tafa La gumina, Balough they had unreal U20's on par or maybe better than Atalanta I have just Started up a Lazio save but i used the editor to wipe all the debts of the big 6 so hopefully they will all get stronger/keep there stars and build as i want it as hard as i can i agree it can get easy once you have reached the top. Just wanted to give a shout out to few smaller teams nobody has mentioned if you want a different challenge, I really like small teams with unusually large passionate supporters and there are few floating around Italy,all from the south which adds to the spice as the south has the character and the weather and beauty of Italy, the North is Industrial cold and serious Bari- The birthplace of Antonio Cassano and Leonardo Bonucci, in real life just been relegated to Serie D for financial problems but were a game away from Serie A last year, they have one of the best stadiums in the world which similar to west ham was given to them after 90 World Cup and in a play off game couple of years ago they actually filled it 60,000 thats mental, a bit like scunthorpe playing at wembely, the potential is huge here Lecce- Just Promoted in real life to B but again they have serie A crowds while in Serie C, i really love their Badge but the kit is a bit of an eyesore but that can add to the charm Right down the deepest south of Italy in the 'Florence of the south' really gutsy team when they were last in A and played above themselves and were giant killers beating all the top 6, Another huge Stadium to 40,000 cap Catania- These could be a marmite team, they have arguably the most violent and aggressive supporters in Italy and that's saying something, they killed a policeman in 07 during the Sicilly Derby, really different though in that they don't really assosiate with Italy and when they were in Serie A they had about 80 percent South Americans in the squad, Team play like supporters, aggressive, they appointed Diego Simeone as manager so say's alot, they are in Serie C though so big long challenge ahead to get them back to the top but another team who 'Should' be in serie A
  5. I like that you Chose Catania i have been playing in italy for years mostly Serie A but whenever you brows the lower leagues 2 teams immediately stand out, Lecce with the big stadium and high season ticket holders and Catania, they stayed at back of my mind as a potential future team and i eventually got round to it, and i really got into both teams, they are interesting because there kits are initially ugly by italian standards but they grow on you and in way reflects their status as the rugged underdogs against the slick rich northern powerhouses. One thing i had to comment on though was your non italian signing policy, in real life they sign ALOT of south americans are are seen as a south american city more so than italian, i am the opposite in that i try not to sign any northern Italians and scout all the southern squads for talent and there are a few really good gems, Luca Dilleto,Raul Torregrossa Viscovo, Tummenello, Del Sole, Puntierre, Alagna Volpe, Coppolaro probs more but cant remember top of head The Southern teams are often overlooked but each of them are potential Sleeping giants and they seem to get bigger and more volatile crowds Forza Elephanti
  6. Leeds United. One of the main things i always consider when picking a new team are the supporters, as much as say Fulham are a cute little club with lovely stadium, i could never manage them because they have Hugh Grant and Stephen Fry supporters, you want mental salt of the earth types like a Napoli, So with that i found a little option on the editor called Supporter Profile where the have 5 attributes, Passion Loyalty Temperament Affluence and Patience so ill list the main U.K ones i found to see what people think, a few i am a bit iffy about, ill just list Passion and loyalty as they're the main ones 1. Leeds Passion 19 Loyalty 17 2. Celtic 19 11 3. Palace 18 17 4. Milllwall 18 16 5. Portsmouth 18 12 6. Newcastle 17 17 Liverpool and Villa 16 18 Chelsea 5 the ones i am a bit unconvinced on are Portsmouth only 12 loyalty when they sell out in league 2, Rangers are only 14 for passion and i thought Newcastle and Liverpool might be bit higher
  7. Well that's why i am trying to get a general consensus, i personally do believe 17 is the best but that 15,16,17 are very close together in style, however just because the game may have improved every year technically, fundamentally the game may have been at it's best in previous years, which is what i am interested to find, since a few posts on here are even 14 before is telling that simplicity may be better So while there are more thrills and data each year, hardcore players might say 'actually 14 had better training set up or 15 had better match engine
  8. I agree with CFULLER, there is alot going on in this new one, while a couple (team hierarchy) are not bad overall it is unrecognisable it has gone in wrong direction, but i am really hoping 19 is a comeback, but as it stands i think 17 was the peak year, and that's why i am hoping on here someone convinces me maybe 15 or 16 were actually the best so i can take a break from 17
  9. Ok to expand a little bit, is there a particular year that nailed the match engine, because you would assume that it would improve year on year but i just noticed in 15 just a few moves and types of goals that were better than 17, but i don't know if its better in every aspect (of 2d classic)
  10. I am still playing fm 17 as i still can't come to terms with the removal of 2D classic, it has killed it for me and is sat in my library with 10 hour game stuck in purgetory asi have played to many hours to get a refund,how i racked up 10 hours is beyond me i must have fallen a sleep I don't doubt the game has probably improved and evolved in many ways and i really want to get on board but every 2 months i re download 18 and say this time i am going to really try and get into it this time, but the the match day game comes and it's just ffs i can't lie to myself it's unplayable, its not just that i had 17 so well tuned in terms of the right skin and background packs that it just looked so beautiful and i actually believed i was in Spain or Italy. So with that said and fact i can't keep playing 17 forever i know the players too well now it's losing it's spontanaity so i was thinking if i can't go forward maybe ill go backward one or two years so i loaded up 15 and immediately had that familiar yet just out of comfort zone feeling you get with new additions, despite the fact that looking on steam i actually somehow played 2000 minutes more on 15 than 17 it still felt a bit alien, yet 'oh yeah remember you could do that' for example player individual training is a little bit more complex on 15 and i think i remember a few hardcores saying that it has become more simplified over the last few but i may be wrong So which series do you think was the most complete 14 i the year it took a step forward and 15,16,17 have been few tweeks but largely the same and 18 is a step again but wether in the right direction or not time will tell
  11. It also forces you to use what you have and develop the kids as best as you can, i am going by fm 17 so 18 might vary a little but i know Fiorentina inside out, the right back Diiks is potentially really good needs tutoring but very quick, also Babacar still just aboutt qualifies for tutoring so if you can get him pumped up you have a quality striker Hagi,Milenkovic, and Chiesa are sure wonderkids top top class and there are 4 or 5 others who are maybe wonderkids. I got into both Lazio and Fiorentina saves deeply and researched both clubs what eventually put me off Lazio a bit was that they have that huge stadium which is only half full, and it seems they are more interested in beating Roma than winning the league Fiorentina on other hand have mad support and a beautiful stadium (it's designed in a way that is overlooks the tuscan hills and looks like something out of a portrait) which is rocking, also they HATE juve with a passion and have been screwed over by them a few times in past, they lost the league on final day to them in 80s due to very suspect reffing and they have never forgotten nor come close to winning the league since, add to that Bernardechi and Baggio being nicked by them causing riots outside of the ground so you have motivation to put them in there place Also i always found it interesting how Batistuta stayed with them for the best part of his career when he could have gone anywhere and they never challenged just because he fell in love with the club and city
  12. yeah the money is crap even if you consistently finish top 3 and even win you may get 20m tops, but i actually prefer that because you have to find cheap talents and do them up or get top established players on frees or transfer list
  13. It can become too easy when because as your team improves i find the rest get weaker because the big guns in europe start stealing the best players, what i did was go on editor and give the top 5 300m each and then it reversed it and they all built really hard teams. Lazio have a really strong squad you don't have to do alot with them, great team though what with the kit, the nasty ultas and the Rome derby
  14. Luca Mazzitelli and Lorenzo Pellegrini both play for Sasuollo and both Romans look very good, also ive bought Matteo Stoppa from Novara 15 year old striker who seems to have awesome potential and only cost 200k
  15. I am playing fm 17 because of the 2d classic thing but he is on there unnatatched as Director of football, Rui Costa is at benfica and hes one of the best Dof but he won't leave unless you cheat
  16. Fiorentina are a bit of a goldilocks team in that you don't have a ready made squad like the big guns but they have enough power to atttract very good players if you can afford them, and if like me you want to raid the academies of Italy for a potential future super squad then you can snap them up with ease. I still play 17 so i don't know how much certain players have changed but in my save you start with some really good potential wonderkids straight off the bat if turored and well looked after New Vidic, Strong as an ox Lo Faso style is like young Ronaldo cuts inside and has alot of long shots but potentially deadly Don't know if he will be top top class but local harry kane type so he gets special treatment, great name Little pocket magician, youtube this kid along with Lo faso they look really good As for transfers i bought Lafont, the one you have is ok and Ddragovic is maybe one for future but Lafont is gettable not cheap but will be one of the best in world and ready to start immediate In real life they are looking at Cataldi and in my team he was playing for Italy and my Captain fantastic in 2 years, Can play sitting or B2B whatever you need he has it all, bit like Gerrard he will score the odd long ranger with 10 mins to go when your desperate Alongside Bennasi who also became Italy regular they were a force Next up Capezzi i got him really cheap from Sampdoria as he was only rotation But he came through the ranks at fiorentina so i had to bring him home, pure DLP really so in a 3 with the other 2 or with cataldi b2b next to him he is class I also dicovered on the editor that the great man himself Batigoal's son is on here, he is only 20 and plays striker for some amature team in argentina, Batistuta also can be made DOF he is useless but who cares just to have him back around the club is enough
  17. I second Fiorentina one of the most satysfying careers i have played on FM classy city, the kit, always the nearly men and the fact they despise Juve just adds the challenge of dethrowning them and bringing the title back to a city that desperately craves it. I have However got another interesting save going at the moment that i've been meaning to do for a while and that's US Lecce. They're is a huge culture and class difference in Italy that is reflected in Football between the north and the south and except for Napoli there are no real competitive teams in the top division, Bennevento are the whipping boys this year. and the south are really looked down upon by the richer cities and mocked regularly, That doesn't mean though that there aren't 'Big' teams in the south in terms of supporter/ultras. There are probably 4 standouts in Palermo (awesome kit) crazy owner, great youth propects, Catania (hideous badge) Bari (60,000 stadium) and Lecce who's kit is both crap yet strangely appealing, They have crazy fans too and the largest in terms of season ticket holders despite playing in serie C, so i thought what a worthy team to take back to the top and restore some pride. To add to the challenge i want to sign players born from the south because if this is a South vs North challenge i can't be winning with players from the enemy, also i found that they have a good friendship with Palermo which will be handy as they could be a source for many loans ans possible transfers My Brightest Prospect is this fella, turned down Lazio a dozen times and he is coming on really well i will be building the team around him This is How i am lining up in Serie B Signed Mansueto from Palermo who is just running the defence at 18 and sold Torromino our best player for 1M and signed Max clayton for free who is as good so blinding piece of business We are so far undefeated with 10 games left and roaring back to Serie A where the real fun begins, The wolves are coming.
  18. Update ive ditched the libero and switched to BPD in the middle with hold position dribble more and we played fantastic could mean nothing but ive heard before and i think there may be some truth but the sweeper/libero doesnt seem to work, maybe it just sets the team too deep i am not sure, maybe when defending a lead with 15 min left it's great but for overall balance it's not effective, obviously the reason for having it is to counter strong teams or teams with a packed midfield but i still want to have a go and if done right you can have the best of both worlds
  19. You might be on to something, definitely the midfield 2 are standing out as they both ultimately hold position, i see your point in having a 3 in mid with the center on attack that could work, or what about changing the bwm to a B2B type and have the 10 as a AP support holding?
  20. I have a potentially great tactic but there is something missing so i wanted to throw it out there and see what comes back, i don't have screenshots so i'll break it down man for man Libero- I change PI to hold position,dribbles more and Direct passing making him a more creative sweeper The 2 CB in front are on Stopper duty and i occasionally tinker with mark tighter for one of them The 2 wingbacks are on support with stay wider as i only want them for width and an outlet 2 in center mid a DLP with Dribble less and a BWM S Then in the hole i have an AM on attack with risky passes as i found AP along with the 2 behind we lacked movement Then up top a Poacher with Close down more move in Channels and with him a DF with Roam although ive tinkered with that role also I set up my team instructions very simple as the PI are usually enough i only have counter mentality and play wider Ive actually won Serie A playing with this alot but that was when we were really well gelled with good players and i always get found out in Europe against the best so as i said it does have potential but it needs something as we dont create enough and while we are hard to break down invite them on to us far to much sometimes So any comments are welcome

  22. I don't normally get FM until the new year by which time every graphics pack are out and about, but i cant get into this new one yet until i get a skin, it feels like going back to premier manager 98 How long roughly until the skins usually start popping up?
  23. Ok thank you, how long roughly before they pop up
