  1. I just stopped by, just to say that you gave me my enthousiasm back to play this game after a stop of a few weeks. I stopped playing because I just couldn't figure out my tactics and what was going wrong and what I really wanted. Now I'm gonna try this and see where it gets me, with my own tweaks ofcourse Thanks for the great openingpost!
  2. Yes, that makes two of us, 41221 is what I want to play deep in my heart, so that is exactly what I keep on trying every time
  3. Maybe it is the 4231 and 41221 that makes it a difficult save? I have similar experiences with every save I tried playing those formations in this version of FM. I hate to say this, but in my experiences a standard 4312 works everytime I struggle with 41221 and 4231. It seems to me that formations with wingers are waaaaaay more difficult to get right in this game. The only time I managed to get them to work as a solid tactic for more then one consecutive year in a save was when I was managing an extrenely strong PSG, while 4312 almost always seems to work no matter what team I'm managing. I'm finding this very frustrating because I would want to use 41221 all the time but that seems to make the game to hard for my liking
  4. There is this Youtubeguy, LokiDoki (he also started the "dear SI/Sega" discussion), he did a 500 years in the future testsave. Spoileralert: Liverpool never got the league title
  5. Well, I've tried your suggestions for thunneling the pressure in my 41221 and watched on full for a few matches. I must say I'm a bit disappointed with the way the match engine translates these in theory great instructions. On very few occasions I saw a good example of pressuring, but most of the times the AI can very easily play out of the pressure without any difficulty. My players just weren't pressing enough, unfortunately. I don't think there is anything wrong with the instructions, in fact I still think this is a groundbreaking topic. But the execution of this way of pressuring somehow isn't working for me in FM. I'm back on my old way of pressure: highest defensive line possible and close down much more for the whole team. This works for my 41221 and gives the opposition no time at all to properly build an attack from the back.
  6. I think it isn't really helpful to just post a link to another thread where a system is described which is a bit different than what the topicstarter was talking about, especially the formation and playing roles will differ in a 433 vs 343
  7. This is amazing. If this is really the way that move into channels works, I finally understand why my midfield runner would benefit from a creator who moves into channels. Cheers!
  8. fm2017 skin

    Thanks for version 5.1, it's amazing!! Now to finalize all this greatness: 1. what resolution works best for this skin? 2. How can I manage to see a picture of the club-location in the club overview? (see picture below for the missing pictures, I have already installed the daz8 backgroundpack so stadiums and cities work fine. Only locations is missing)
  9. Wow, this is a groundbreaking topic for me. I have never understood how I could actually use the close down instructions etc in such a way that I could thunnel the play where I want it to be. Very insightful stuff! I'll post my experiences when I've tried my take on this 🙂
  10. I always thought that Vitrex was the best skin, as I also said in a post in this topic. But after your post I checked the clinched skin and you are totally right: Clinched is the best skin out there!

    yeah, I totally agree after some thinking, as you can see

    Hi @sirwill, after some thinking about it I think you totally deserve a donation for your great work so that's what I just did. Does this also imply that I now can get access to the latest version of this skin?
  13. fm2017 skin

    Ah, its not for free, fair enough I guess. I'll consider a donation then 🙂
  14. fm2017 skin

    Its V3. I can't find the latest version, do you know where I can download that version? Cheers for the city pack suggestion, I was using Vitrex City pics. Will try DAZ8's citypack to see what happens. Do you also know where I can download that citypack?

    I love this skin, great work! I was using Vitrex until today. This is even better! I have two questions about the club overview screen: 1. there's a widget that shows location, city and stadium pictures, but there are no location's or cities shown. Only the stadium pictures are shown. How can I get the locations and cities to show up? 2. There's a panel that shows "key employees". When there is a key employee marked as "none currently", this text shows up higher than the other key employees. How can I fix this? Thanks in advance. I really appreciate the work that's gone into this.
