  1. Great, thanks for letting me know. I wasn't sure if that sort of recklessness was included in the game. Now I do, I'll be more wary...
  2. Thanks for taking a look so quickly. I'm still a bit confused as to why the board are happy for me to spend so much more money though. Are they gambling against future income?
  3. I've uploaded the save game, named Marshdweller - financial issue.fmt Let me know if it's uploaded OK, if not I'll try again.
  4. Hi Luke, Thanks for getting back to me. Here's the screenshot of my Finances screen. Since my original post I played on a little more and sold two of my highest earners for a combined €700,000. My total transfer profit this season alone is €1.2m. It seems like the board are kinda responding to the issues by limiting the wage budget for next season, but as I say, I still have €1.4m to spend and I'm €13k a week under my current wage budget. Let me know if you need me to upload my save game, I'm more than happy to do so.
  5. You've actually just jump-started my interest in an old FMC15 save, so I played on last night and sneaked a 2-1 win in the Champions League final as FC Volendam. You've also convinced me of the viability of a youth development-oriented save in FMC/FMT, so massive thanks for that too. Apologies if this sounds a bit gushy but your thread has had a profound effect on my enjoyment of FM and I'm very grateful for that.
  6. Excellent, thanks very much. That's a massive improvement on the standard dark skin.
  7. Sorry to drag this back up, but only just found the thread and really enjoyed it. I still play a bit of FMC15 and would love to know what skin you were using please?
  8. I've also got this problem in a save mentioned in another thread. I'm having to arrange all the friendlies manually or accept other teams' challenges myself. I replaced the original assistant manager after the first season but before the first pre-season so the only pre-season friendlies I haven't had to arrange myself were those at the very start of the game.
  9. Sorry to bump this, but does this sound like a bug? If not, I'll go seeking advice in the main forums. However, I find it hard to believe that the game can be coded so a team which is making significant progress year on year can be allowed to lose money at the rate I have been. The board are allowing me to spend at a rate that can only end with bankruptcy.
  10. So, I'm halfway through my fourth season in the Swedish league with GAIS. I've had a pretty successful time, winning promotion in the first season, avoiding relegation in season two and finishing fifth in season three. However, my finances are causing me serious concern (but not the board - and this is the bug, I think). When I started the game, GAIS were slightly in debt (I can't remember the exact figure, but looking at the graph it looks like it was about €300k in the red). Since then, despite progress on the pitch (and thus increased prize money) and constantly making a significant net profit on transfers (€550k spent, €2m brought in), my debt has risen to €2.3m. It would be worse if the board hadn't 'invested' €750k. Looking through the finances, it looks as though my problem stems from offering too much in wages to my key players. What is really confusing me is that my current transfer budget is over €700k and I have another €6k per week to spend in my wage budget. Why are the board allowing me to potentially spend this money if it is taking me further and further into debt? I thought the club administrations in FM were built to be a bit more savvy than those in real life... I'm happy to upload my save if needed for investigation.
  11. Just to clarify, this only affects the substitutes. I can move players around on the tactics pitch and drag players from the pitch to the left-hand list to make substitutions.
  12. Uninstalling and reinstalling hasn't solved the problem either.
  13. Hi Luke, Thanks for getting back to me. I can't drag the shirts at any point: when looking at the general tactics screen, when on the team selection screen as part of the pre-match build up or during a game. I've tried clearing the cache and changing skins (official ones only) without it making any difference. I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling and see if that helps.
  14. I've found two bugs in FMT17, one before the 17.2 patch and one I've only noticed since. The one before - the headers on the attributes filter for mental and physical attributes are the wrong way around. The one after - I can no longer drag substitutes onto the pitch from the shirts on the right hand side. I have to use the name list on the left of the tactics pitch. Let me know if I need to upload anything and I'll do my best to provide.
  15. Thanks, that seems to have worked perfectly.
