  1. New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Hello all I am also looking for a new/upgrade on my laptop and my main reason for purchasing is to play FM, I have had a look here in HK and I need to purchase through a certain shop so I can pay over 12 months. My options on availability are therefore limited. Anyway this one seems really good for the price, can anybody confirm that this would be a good option for the upcoming 2018 version of FM? Help/advice would be appreciated. It will cost $6,799.00 HKD which is around 680 - 700 quid. Cheers HP HP15-ay129TX HP15-ay129TX 15.6" FHD/i7-7500U/8 Specification Processor Intel Core i7-7500U Operations System Windows 10 Home Hard Disk 1TB Hard Disk Drive Speed 5400rpm Memory 8 GB Optical Drive DVDRW Display Screen Size 15.6" Display Screen Resolution (dpi ) 1920 x 1080 Display Card AMD Radeon R7 M440 (4GB DDR3 dedicated) Network Interface AC Wireless LAN External Ports Integrated Multi-Format SD Card Reader, 1xUSB 3.0, 2xUSB2.0, HDMI Battery (Life) 4-cell Li-Ion Battery Dimension (WxDxH, mm) 243x25.4x384 Weight (kg) 2.19kg Warranty 1-1-0 Screen Touch Function No SSD Capacity N/A
  2. Yeah I have done all that kingrobbo but nothing seems to have changed. Has anybody managed to get this working with FM2016 or is it just not compatible? Cheers
  3. Does anybody know if this will still work with FM 2016? I tried the below but doesn't seem to have done anything. Any ideas as this is a great idea in my opinion. Backup your hair folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2016\data\facegen\hair -Delete it and extract the new hair folder there -Regen faces should be replaced upon loading the game
  4. Kriss, To be fair I think the major frustration with this issue is that the demo wasn't available in the region (as phnomphenhandy states the biggest continent on the planet) and this is when alarm bells should have started ringing. People questioned this on this very thread and were given the response from Neil Brock stating I've comfirmed that you'll have to wait until the 7th November. We have now gone past this date and the game is not available, so if this was confirmed then why are people in this region unable to gain access to the game. I guess the frustrations that people are showing is related to the fact that they would like some answers rather than being brushed off with you need to direct your frustrations at Sega. Surely SI games are just as concerned about this as we are (if they aren't then they probably should be due to the loss of potential revenue) and some signs that something is being done or attempts are being made to find out when the problem will be resolved would be greatly appreciated.
  5. This really is a joke Kriss you keep saying its a sega issue, like somebody said earlier it is a partnership and accountability needs to be taken instead of just passing the buck and saying its not our fault. The demo hasnt been available in the regions that are having difficulties so there was plenty of time to investigate the situation and find out why before the release date but this has obviously not been done. Now there are numerous previous loyal customers to the SEGA/STEAM/SI product/brand that have been let down by incompetent and lazy action that has left alot of people upset, many of whom have paid 30 quid for the privelige. I suggest people start putting their heads together and start producing a solution to this error that doesnt involve VPN's or asking somebody thousands of miles away to log into an account to download a product that should be readily available on the release date that was provided previously. Especially when the companies involved have been happy to accept payment for this game and many previous versions. I look forward to this situation being resolved soon.
  6. Im in hong Kong and i am unable to buy it from the official website, I haven't tried Steam yet but I will when I get home from work. Not keen on shelling out 30 quid and then finding out it wont work, can anybody let us know when we can actually get the game in these regions. Thanks

  8. FM12 Cut-Out Faces Megapack Thread

    I have downloaded the torrent for this from fmdownloads but im not sure what I do with it now. When i click on it I get the message saying windows cant open this file and I can choose a program to open it. Is this correct or has it not downloaded properly? There are no folders with pics in them. Any help would be appreciated, I would rather download the pack by torrent if possible. Thanks

    thanks for your help I have tried running ccleaner and running it again but get the same message. Fuss or anybody else Are you able to tell me how to do this? delete it, wipe your temp files, cache and prefetch data, and then start it over. Im in Hong Kong so not going to call them in the US just yet. Cheers
  10. I have pre purchased the game from Gamersgate but when I try and download I get the following messagewhen the download gets to the 93.7% mark. "An error has occured while downloading, the download is now paused. You may unpause the download to try again. Error message failed to create file". I have tried unpausing and going again but same message. Anybody else had this problem or is it just me? Wish I had bought it through somebody else now as Gamersgate aren't answering my emails to customer support. Very frustrating when they have already took the money off my credit card. If anybody knows a solution to this I would be grateful to hear it, unfortunately I think I will just have to try and get my money back. Thanks

  14. Tactical Central & Insight:

    Loversleaper I was hoping you could offer me some advice. Im playing in the conference north with Blyth Spartans and im predicted to finish mid season so im looking at using the tactician style. Im doing fine at home with a combination of the hiddink and sir alex but im struggling away from home. When i am large underdogs i use the Allegri and that works well but im struggling for a tactic when im favourites (both large and short) and short underdogs. Any reccomendations on what you would use on normal dry days. Cheers
