  1. Hi all, bit of advice needed on a laptop.. I have the following laptop which ran FM great https://ao.com/product/fx504gde4603t-asus-laptop-black-59430-251.aspx however the laptops ran into some issues and I've lost faith in it.. looking to exchange and the following laptop works price wise, improvement in having an SSD (I understand this doesn't impact on FM gameplay) however downgrade on processor with i5-7300hq from i5-8300h - I have very little knowledge tech wise, will the difference be noticeable or is that very unlikely? Otherwise they appear identical to me but would appreciate any info if the below laptop seems noticeably inferior. https://ao.com/product/1tt86eaabu-hp-laptop-black-62626-251.aspx Thanks
  2. Hoping for some advice on two laptops.. these look spec wise identical to me but I'm really not great tech wise so some advise on which to go for would be much appreciated; https://www.very.co.uk/asus-fx504gd-e4603t-intelreg-coretrade-i5-processornbspgeforce-gtx-1050-graphicsnbsp8gbnbspramnbsp16gbnbspintelreg-optane-1tbnbsphdd-156-inch-gaming-laptop/1600287444.prd?_requestid=445869&Ntt=laptops asus https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-power-15-cx0599sa-15-6-intel-core-i5-laptop-1-tb-hdd-black-10185252-pdt.html Thanks

    Cloud saves

    Thanks for above info.. I am just going to save to memory stick as when I save on cloud none of the above seems to occur, no specific notification occurs and on steam FM shows exactly the same as after a local save.

    Cloud saves

    Sorry this is a really basic question but I haven't played FM for years prior to 19, where can you check to make sure the sync has completed/progress of the syncing? On steam I cannot see any indication that the sync has completed, I just save it and once the game completes the save turn the laptop off. Getting slightly concerned as my laptop is being replaced in the next week or two.
  5. Hi all, I've not used or needed to test the cloud storage feature before having only played on one laptop however my laptop is having to be replaced.. I have no reason to question the cloud saves reliability just slightly concerned having spend soo many hours on a save. Any noticeable issues? Is it possible to save my game onto a memory stick to be covered? If so how would I go about this as in what folders to save.. I'm really not great with computers so as much info would be really appreciated. Thanks
  6. Hi all, Hoping for some advice on below laptops, I'm able to get them at the same price so please ignore price difference, just want to know best option. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-15-da0595sa-15-6-intel-core-i7-laptop-1-tb-hdd-silver-10184685-pdt.html https://www.box.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.003-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-57YT_2156569.html https://ao.com/product/fx504gde4603t-asus-laptop-black-59430-251.aspx Any other suggestions around the £500-600 range appreciated.
  7. Only played FMM prior to current version since 2012 but just wondered if my experience was normal and if anyone could offer advice. Playing as Cambridge Utd (league 2) and had a really good start to season, long winning runs (6-7 games) between occasional draw or loss but into Jan/Feb just no momentum, can't put two wins together, general performance dropped from dominating games. Advice wise is it expected to need to change tactics dramatically, I don't know if the computer figures you out after a while, or persevere with what's worked? I've tried small changes in dropped defensive line as being beaten by balls over the top, shooting stats were becoming a miss match between shots/on target so started work into box but no luck. Compared to Full version (played a season during beta) FMT seems difficult to turn it around when it's not going well in absence of team talks, player interaction etc. Thanks
  8. Hi Smurf/all.. I highly doubt it as I got a very good deal in the first instance but could anyone suggest a comparable laptop to the below for £550. I'm being offered a full refund (£550) due to two faults in three months. I don't trust the laptop now but may just have to get the same laptop replacement as I can't find anything close in specs. https://ao.com/product/fx504gde4603t-asus-laptop-black-59430-251.aspx I5-8300H, 8GB RAM + 16GB optane memory, 1TB, GeForce GTX 1050 2GB graphics. Thanks all

    New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

    Hi, I got the below laptop for £550 in sale however unfortunately after being sent off for repair has suffered another issue all within 3 months. Frustratingly it played FM19 very well for my needs - 4.5/5 * running top 4 leagues in Eng and top league in 5 other nations with 3* for graphics no issues on High settings. Although I could get an exchange I don't trust the laptop but unfortunately I can't find anything near the specs I currently have for the money I would get for an exchange (£550). Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Current laptop https://ao.com/product/fx504gde4603t-asus-laptop-black-59430-251.aspx Thanks
  10. Had my standard Liverpool save on FM and Cambridge utd save on FMT set-up however my 2 month old laptop bought specifically for the new FM decided to stop working last night - having to go back for repairs for at least 2 weeks!! Any teams suggestions for FMM to get me over the dissapointment of my dodgy laptop?!?
  11. Confirmed that the laptop is not fixable at home.. has to be sent for repair which will take at least 2 weeks, unbelievable with view to the purchase being primarilly for Football manager release. Looks like I'm getting FMM again this year!
  12. Unfortunately I can't access any data.. stuck on a 'preparing automatic repair' and it's got to the point where my options are setting the laptop back to before FM beta was released or full factory reset. Only intended to start a short save before Full release but got far too into it, oh well.
  13. Sorry I don't know where this should be posted but would really appreciate an answer.. Basically my new laptop has developed a fault and will either need a full reset or a new laptop sent out - I hadn't used Steam before FM19 or had FM since 2012 and so my question is, having not created a cloud save is my save only on my laptop hard drive? As I have no idea I was hoping it may be saved to my steam account but I am guessing not. Thanks
  14. Yeah, mid-July now so it's not happening
  15. Playing as Liverpool and Danny Ings has as £18m(£20*) fee agreed after 1 year loan however on completion of this and leaving for Southampton no transfer fee was received.. gone a week past now expecting it would be received but still not. Bug or is there a reason for this?
