  1. Same here, still an issue, and on the most recent build as well.

    Goalkeeper Match Ratings

    I assume it is, but that shouldn't bear too much on the final rating. Does it raise your GK ratings considerably?

    Goalkeeper Match Ratings

    I was just looking for a place to highlight this as one of the most irritating issues of FM 2011. First of all, if you take most leagues, you will have most goalkeepers amongst the top 30 best players in the league, because they usually get higher ratings IRL. Secondly, any goalie that does not concede and makes three crucial saves will most likely end up as the man of match. I think goalie behavior is ok in the game, they are not saving too many shots are letting too many through, it's just that the rating system is poorly implemented. Of all the things that could do with some tweaking, I would imagine goalie ratings shouldn't be that hard, as there is a pretty consistent correlation between shots on target and saves which is really not reflected in the rating the goalie gets after the match.

    Crash during game

    Ok, so I've been through the game with my old save and it still crashes on the same day. It starts to seem like this whole season of play was wasted. P.S. I've read now that this is a known bug (24th of July, Italy), so I guess I'll just sulk for the next 30 minutes or so.

    Crash during game

    I didn't continue my demo game. I tried going on holiday. I was actually playing in windowed mode. Tried in fullscreen mode as well, didn't help. What I also tried is loading a much older game (about 6 months) and just GOH-ing through. I hope this will work, although it's quite a pain.
  6. Hey all! I've been through the first season with my team and on a given date, my game crashes. I don't know if anyone can help/if this helps anyone, but I've attached the crash dump file here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ckp9q6. Thanks!
  7. I was just looking at my current game and comparing it to real life. I'm playing in the Romanian first league. Total goals scored in 21 match rounds were 561 in the game and 462 in real life. This means a 21% difference and, fundamentally, it means about 5 goals more scored each round than in real life. In comparing how many matches had five or more goals scored: FM: 37 (of which 10 were 2-3/3-2 scores) RL: 17 (of which 8 were 2-3/3-2 scores) So not only were there far more matches with five or more goals scored, but the most frequent result in RL, which was 2-3/3-2, was underepresented in FM. Do what you want with these numbers, but it's an indisputable fact to me that somehow, in some games, there are too many goals scored.

Somebody, somewhere, is leaving gaping holes all over the flanks. You should be looking to get this down to below 20% for the opposition and keep it above 20% for your team. If the oppositon makes almost every other cross, you are doing something seriously, seriously wrong. As always, all the clues are in the match stats. I'm assuming you have started a game in 8.0.2 rather than continued an 8.0.1 save? </div></BLOCKQUOTE> I think the Bognor game might have been an 8.0.1 continued save, that's why I wouldn't have complained at all had the problem not appeared in my subsequent games made on 8.0.2. I looked at a game where I am in the first league (as opposed to the 6th with Bognor) and the cross rates are down and they are generally as you state them when I win a match. I'd love it if I could sometimes just have someone who truly understands the engine sit next to me and explain to my why certain things seem to happen so often, but that is not possible and every time I signal something of the sorts, I am told to look at tactics. I've tried doing many things against poorer teams when I was 3-0 up, just to make sure nothing weird happens, and it was more than once that I conceded three in the last ten minutes, despite playing defensively, making substitutions, wasting time, etc (and not excessively, only the last 20 minutes or so, when I felt they were coming strong). It will take anyone more than what you've told me to make me understand why I keep conceding/scoring so many goals in the 90th. I feel like I can do very little about it.

    In general, I'd have no problem with the idea that certain things can be explained by tactics. But there are other things which just feel blatantly "systematic". In some save games it's more acute than in others; I'd received (and scored) for example a load of goals after absolutely moronic back-passes. And it's not that it doesn't happen, just that it always happens in a very similar manner - and even in top flight competitions. I've just started another game on 8.0.2 and still feel there is a bit of a problem with the long shots, players shooting too easily too much on goal. A good goalkeeper makes a difference, for sure, but somehow the guy I had at Bognor, despite looking brilliant, was a disaster (I assume certain hidden stats weren't as good as the visible ones). For me it's more about how it happens rather than why it happens, that's where I felt the problem lies in these last few games. Didn't have these problems in 8.0.1, didn't even have them in an 8.0.2 game, but then they started popping up and it's rather annoying. I'll try to work on tactics, but some things are beyond tactics, to my mind.

    I've been using this tactic for years. It's really not very aggressive or anything, playing everything on medium. I mean sure, if I go all out attack I obviously see a huge rift between the defence and the the striker/s offensive midfielder. Also, the same way I concede long shots goals, I score them. So either everyone does the same mistake, or it's something more than.

    Thing is, I used the same tactics in 8.0.1 and there weren't as many long-shots going in. It's absurd, especially considering I was playing at Conference level; I mean I'd get it if Ronaldinho and the likes were the ones "inflicting" the goals, but not some weirdo with 5-10 long shots.

    Also, just a thought looking at my example and the issue mentioned by drevil, that too often the side that has less shots on goal wins (as was the case in Bognor - Exeter): maybe the game "balances" the save percentages mentioned by mlp701, in that my goalie had a save ratio of 20% and his had one of around 66% - balanced at more or less 50%. Just thinking this may be the way in which the game applies this particular real world statistic. But I have no clue why long-shot goals are so bloody frequent.

    drevil, I was refering to the fact that goals were scored in an identical manner, at the near post. It's weird in a way. I initially thought the patch was ok, but then all these things started happening. I have no clue whether i changed anything, maybe it's because I got the latest version of 8.0.2, because I've noticed my problems after that. But I'm not totally sure when and why it happened.

    I hate moaning, but for me, 8.0.2 is a disaster. I get so many long shot goals and so many beginning/end of half goals that it seem ludicrous. Goalkeeper ratings seem to be a bit of a problem again, this time in the sense that I've seen goalies conceding seven out of nine and still getting a 6. It seems to me that every time something gets fixed (e.g. corner kick goals) something else go wrong.
