  1. I have wanted this for ages! If you go back and watch Guardiola's Bayern when they played 3-4-3/3-5-2 they often had Alaba as the wide left CB, who would then roam forward or join the midfield when the play was in the final third to create a 2-3-5, I'd love to be able to create something like that. Maybe have a player instruction on the BPD to either join the midfield (as in move into the DM strata) or move high and wide (as in the WB strata) Or alternatively allow the Libero to be selected in any of the CB positions
  2. Yep, tried just it with 100% zoom and 85% zoom and it doesn't affect it, just windowed
  3. So I've been doing a trial and error, and it is when I put it into Windowed. I can live without having it Windowed. Thanks a lot for your help I really appreciate it!
  4. Right we are getting somewhere! It does not crash once I have deleted the cache and preferences folder! However, when I do change my preferences again it does crash dump again. Could it be when I change it to Windowed or when I change the text size to 85%, or when I untick caching and tick reload skin on exit? I cant imagine any other preference I select IE changing height to feet, would have this effect?
  5. I have yes and since then that is when it just crashes on the tactics screen. I can pick which style I want to play with and what formation, it sometimes crashes when I am changing player roles, and it sometimes crashes when I move to the set pieces screen. I can do everything else other than those two things
  6. I did have the license fix installed but I deleted it, uninstalled/reinstalled the game and still the same issues I did have McAfee but I (unwisely) uninstalled it whilst trying to find the issue, once it's resolved I will reinstall it. It is literally just the tactics screen now that I get a crash dump. Again, appreciate you taking the time to look at this for me.
  7. I 100% agree, but it's fun to try and get as close to it as possible
  8. I have to say in real life Sane and Mendy do not work on the left so I wouldnt want to recreate that on football manager, it was essentially a W (S) and a CWB (A) and both were taking up similar positions The IWB (A) doesnt really work in a Pep system as it would end up taking up the same positions as the MEZ (S) (I know this because I tried it haha)
  9. 4-1-4-1 doesn't press high enough for me, even if you increase the line of engagement to its highest, if you play with W (S) in the AMRL strata they still get back to defend in a 4-1-4-1 shape, even to an extent a W (A) will, the Raumdeuter does so rarely but still does on occasion, IF (S) and (A) doesnt work for me at all for Pep Guardiola formations, it might help if you could ask them to move into channels, they obviously work for other formations
  10. Problem with the IWB (D) position is that yes, it copies Walkers movements when he moves into midfield, but it doesn't create his main position of a wide center back, which is why I like the No Nonsense Full Back with Sit Narrower selected
  11. I go with Tiki Taka and just change the width to as wide as possible that's all I'd change
  12. Very much agreed, when Zinchenko and Delph play at left back they become Inverted Wing Backs and it tends to change the structure to this; GK - SK (A) DR - NFB (D) - Sit Narrower, Cut Inside with Ball DL - IWB (S) - Hold Position, Shoot Less DC - BPD (C)/Libero (S) DC - BPD (D) DM - RGA (S) MC - MEZ (S) - Shoot Less, Dribble Less MC - MEZ (A) - Shoot Less, Dribble Less AMR - W (S) - Get Further Forward, Cross From Byline AML - W (S) - Get Further Forward, Cross From Byline STCR - CF (A) it still attacks as a 3-5-2 and defends as a 4-1-4-1, to make it a 3-5-2 the attacking Mezzala becomes the auxiliary striker, thus the movement of the striker to the wider striker position, which also frees up space for the inverted wing back to move into, becoming a central midfielder. The striker has changed to an attacking role, due to less players breaking from deep, this formation wouldn't work with a Raumdeuter, due to the spaces the attacking Mezzala takes up, so we need to supporting wingers to stay wide, keeping the central areas unoccupied, we saw this alot last season when Mendy was injured. If you want to know as well we play 3-5-2 as a set formation and a 3-4-2-1 which I particularly like. 3-5-2; GK - Ederson - SK (A) DCR - Vincent Kompany - BPD (D) DC - John Stones - Libero (S) DCL - Aymeric Laporte - BPD (D) MR - Raheem Sterling - W (A) MCR - Kevin De Bruyne - MEZ (S) - Shoot Less, Dribble Less MC - Fernandinho - DLP (D) MCL - David Silva - MEZ (S) - Shoot Less, Dribble Less ML - Benjamin Meny - W (A) STCR - Gabriel Jesus - F9 (S) - Roam From Position STCL - Sergio Aguero - F9 (S) - Roam From Position 3-4-2-1; GK - Ederson - SK (A) DCR - Vincent Kompany - BPD (D) DC - John Stones - Libero (S) DCL - Aymeric Laporte - BPD (D) MR - Raheem Sterling - W (A) MCR - Ilkay Gundogan - DLP (D) MCL - Fernandinho - DLP (D) ML - Benjamin Mendy - W (A) AMCR - Kevin De Bruyne - AM (S) - Get Further Forward, Move Into Channels, Shoot Less AMCL - David Silva - AM (S) - Get Further Forward, Move Into Channels, Shoot Less ST - Sergio Aguero - CF (S) - Roam From Position The 3-4-2-1 might be abit odd in that there are 4 players on with a defend duty, however it is integral so that the formation creates the "magic box" of 2 defensive midfielders and 2 attacking midfielders, I have tried it with 2 DLP (S) in the DM strata but that is a lot less stable due to having no players in the CM strata. It is excellent in outnumbering teams that have 3 players in the CM strata, or only one defensive midfielder. Never play this against a 4-2-3-1 of any kind, I am yet to work out which formation is best against that formation.
  13. It is very tricky to replicate in real life, as he uses very similar formations with slight differences every match (Am a City fan, from Manchester believe it or not!) For example, against United yesterday he used a 4-3-3, which in defence is a 4-1-4-1 and in attack is a 3-5-2 which I would set up as below; GK - Ederson - SK (A) DR - Kyle Walker - NFB (D) - Sit Narrower, Cut Inside With Ball DL - Benjamin Mendy - CWB (A) DC - John Stones - BPD (C)/Libero (S) DC - Aymeric Laporte - BPD (D) DM - Fernandinho - RGA (S) MC - Bernardo Silva - MEZ (S) - Dribble Less, Shoot Less MC - David Silva - MEZ (S) - Dribble Less, Shoot Less AMR - Riyad Mahrez - W (S) - Cross From Deep, Shoot Less AML - Raheem Sterling - RMD (A) STCR - Sergio Aguero - F9 (S) - Roam From Position, Shoot Less It's really important to have the striker in the striker centre right position, so that the Raumdeuter has space to move centrally, and the Complete Wing Back has the room to move forward into a left winger position, the No Nonsense Full Back acts really well as an auxiliary center back, however you will have to train them to not Get Forward Whenever Possible Against Liverpool however in defence it acted as a 4-4-1-1, and in attack it was a 3-5-2 as below; GK - Ederson - SK (A) DR - Kyle Walker - NFB (D) - Sit Narrower, Cut Inside with Ball DL - Benjamin Mendy - CWB (A) DC - John Stones - BPD (C)/Libero (S) DC - Aymeric Laporte - BPD (D) MR - Riyad Mahrez - IW (A) - Cross From Deep, Cross More Often ML - Raheem Sterling - IW (S) - Cross From Deep, Cross More Often, Get Further Forward MC - Bernardo Silva - DLP (S) MC - Fernandinho - DLP (D) AMCR - David Silva - AM (A) - Shoot Less STCL - Sergio Aguero - F9 (S) - Roam From Position To someone who hasn't followed City it could look like both formations were the same, but in fact they were very very different, the main reason we went with a player in the AM strata against Liverpool is to give their midfielders something to think about, as their pressing is excellent however if we managed to play through their press David Silva would be in acres all game, so it does one of two things A) gives Silva more room to work in B) it stops Liverpool pressing so high to cover the spaces Silva takes up Both formations I would go with the Tiki Taka set up but change the attacking width to as wide as possible, other than that everything stays the same
  14. I have been having a play around and it is 95% of the time when I am on the tactics screen that it dumps. If I don't touch the tactics screen when starting a new game I can play right up until my first match, whereby as soon as I look to change a player role it crash dumps, every time. The other 5% of the time it crashes on the staff responsibilities screen when I am changing a duty to a different staff member. Hope this helps and I really appreciate you having a look and helping.
