  1. The thing is.. you can actually see the collapsed souffle before you buy it. And choose to walk out without paying. What I think you can do is in a constructive way ask the chef for a non-collapsed soufflé and hope he listens so that you might wanna buy it. Also, once you have bought it we expect it not to collapse all of a sudden. That happened last year with Long Shot Manager 2018 in my opinion...

    Compressing face packs?

    I now managed to split my facepack into 6 FMF files. Which is working in FM and by the way is extremely better performing in Windows in general (basically displaying/moving 6 big FMF files is much better performing than 200.000+ small PNG files). Apparently the FM Resource Archiver cannot handle such big files as well, and crashed the process after approximately 2GB. So it seems like its a good idea to try below the 2GB mark per FMF file. For anyone else wanting to do this i opened a command prompt in my facepack folder and then executed the following commands: MD FACEPACK1 MOVE 1*.PNG FACEPACK1 MOVE 2*.PNG FACEPACK1 MOVE 3*.PNG FACEPACK2 ... MOVE 9*.PNG FACEPACK6 etc. etc. - each time checking the folder size to determine when im hitting the 2 GB mark, then shifting to next created facepack folder doing the same until my base folder was empty. Afterwards i used FMXML to generate new Config.XML files for each folder. And then the FM Resource Archiver to create a new FMF archive based on the created folders. And then load FM, clear skin cache and then checking it worked.

    Compressing face packs?

    All PNGs and the config is in the same folder. Well something must have gone wrong then when you confirm that it should work. Maybe even when packing the file. The FMF file ended up being 2 GB, while the original folder is 9 GB, so could be its broken? Ill try experimenting with it - thank you for confirming that it should work. Was unsure of whether i needed to do something besides packing and putting it in the folder.

    Compressing face packs?

    Hi, I have a big face pack collection gathered (sortitoutsi + others) all as PNG files with one big config.xml, and have been looking at using the FM19 resource archiver to create one single FMF file from it. Ive put the FMF file in my user folder/sports interactive/graphics, however the game doesnt pick it up even after reloading skin, clearing cache etc. Is this not possible? Its quite a hassle in Windows to manage 200.000+ small files so it would be excellent to compress everything into a single file that can much more easily be copied. Any advice appreciated.
  5. What a random comment. SI has a huge community of fans, I’m just one of them. Been playing since the CM days. I think it’s fair to raise discussions like this because basically you wish for the game still being at its best. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case in my view with the previous versions. So fans try to make SI aware of that. Simple.
  6. Personally, SI really lost me this year. There has been bugs before in previous versions, but you could always look towards the final patch at least making amends and making the game playable. This year however SI left it with several serious flaws that for me just makes the game really frustrating. Especially the high and ridicoulous numbers of long shots. Seeing Phillipe Coutinho time and time again hitting the corner flag from just outside the penalty area is just a frustrating experience. Its not fun anymore, just frustrating. Someone mentioned that it should be raised as a bug, however in my view that is exactly the problem: these observations have been raised as bugs by many people, a lot of evidence from the community provided but SI has chosen to respond to it by not correcting it. Probably because they wanted to move onto FM19. So im jumping off now.
  7. Would be nice but commercially that’s never gonna happen. SI are caught in their own trap where every years edition has to have additional on top features. Im definitely not gonna buy Long Shot Manager 2019....
  8. Verify game cache via Steam? Clear game cache via preferences? "I believe i can fly..."
  9. I was also really really frustrated with these long-shots before the patch. But for me it seems like its improved a bit after the patch. What i have also noticed is that there seem to be a link between the long shots and possession based football (subjective oppinion!). It seems like these horrible long shots happen more often when players lack good passing options in a a control based tactic. I now play a more attacking tactic, and while there are still occational really bad long shots from world class players i now actually see more shots hitting the target. Asensio even now just scored a screamer - something i had to wait 3 months for :-)))
  10. I complained about this for FM13 as well. As usual SI staff requested specific save game examples, which i provided. I was of cause promised that this would be tweaked in the next patch, and asked to then review it again. Same story, same issues, and now the same in FM14. I dont have the energy to have to be working with SI on these issues... play your own game and fix the many obvious issues that anyone sees when playing a match, making a player bid, trying to sell a player, do press conferences that gets completely misunderstood by your team, have your team morale on the low despite being in the cup final.... i could go on and on. I have lost faith in SI ever being able to adress these things due to having gone way overcomplicated with the game, so now i just accept that the game is by nature unfair and favouring the AI - a computer calculating tactics and e.g. transfer bids will always be better than me. Have to get the best out of it - but it doesnt make it less frustrating.
  11. As mentioned earlier, i really really like the new tactics. Its a great please to finally seamingless be able to configure a different playing style per. player in player instructions. HOWEVER a humble request: when setting the player specific properties a pop-up appears with all the shouts. Can we please be allowed to move this box around as it keeps covering the player attribute profile also on the back page. This would hugely improve the usability when it comes to setting individual shouts if you can in fact see the attributes of the player.
  12. ...craaazy stuff compared to FM13.. :-( Anyway OT: LOVING the new tactics configuration. Amazing...simply amazing.
  13. Are salaries correct?? Does CR7 earns £575.000 per week i real life?!! Bale, Falcao £300.000??

    Code from GameSeek

    Confirmed. Just login to gameseek and redeem your code from there.
  15. Rating 5/10 (180 hours) Match engine/tactics is the big issue for me this time around. I appreciate SI pursuing a realism factor here, but the game is just not fun anymore. I have so big difficulties in succeeding even though i have a good team. Its so difficult to make strikers work for instance. People rant "its you tactics"... yes of cause, but can it really be true that you have to study a massive amount of forum posts to get tactics to work? People would then argue that i should go FM classics, but thats not the way! I appreciated FM06, 07 etc. and the depth of the game feature so dont wanna go that way. It just seems SI is overcomplicating stuff and forgetting that the majority of gamers just want to have fun, and then leave it to pro's to take Stevenage into the Champions League...
