  1. Hey guys, Has anyone noticed a slight flicker around the centre of the screen when giving team talks during match day, whether before, during or after the kickoff? I've noticed it after a minute or so around the light in the background photo of a dressing room. I'm using an ultra-wide monitor - just in case that was pertinent. Also, resolution is 3440 by 1440 (not windowed). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Grant.
  2. Hello guys, If I decide I want to deal with all first team training myself - general and individual - and I forget to set a shcedule at some point, will my assistant step up and set up some training, or will the training schedule remain blank? Many thanks. Grant.
  3. Cheers Jordan, I also noticed that real life injuries are also in place. Definitely gonna go back to 19.1. Thank you for the information. Grant.
  4. thehig2, Thank you for taking the time to explain this! I think I'll use 19.1 and scour the transfer market my self for some wonderkids and a good left-back, as Arsenal are severly lacking in defense. Cheers. Grant.
  5. Hey guys, Just started a new game as Arsenal using the latest database (19.3). My starting transfer budget is around £30 million, which seems a little low to me when compared to previous iterations. Is this correct? Does it matter which database I use? For example, if I used the original, prior to any winter tranfer activity, would the budget be higher? Many thanks. Grant. Edit: Tried starting a new game with the 19.1 database and the transfer budget was more than double, so i guess I answered my own question. However, for those more experienced, are there any other differences I should be aware of between 19.1 and 19.3?
  6. Thank you, guys. Appreciate your thoughts. Started my game. Training is...WOW! I think I'll find my footing before trying to arrange everything myself.
  7. Hello guys, I have access to the BETA but haven't started playing yet. I usually play Arsenal. I was wondering what people's thoughts were on starting to play now and carrying over my save to the full version, or just wait until the game's release in 10 days. My reason behind asking the question is that I have read about players finding the game too easy at the moment (along with the usual complaints), and I didn't want my experience spoiled if this is indeed the case. I have bought the game every year since it's release and I've really been looking forward to this years iteration, and I want to enjoy it to the fullest. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. Grant.
  8. Hey fellow managers, I've just started a new save playing as Arsenal. Something I've often wondered about, which I'm hoping you guys can help with, is searching for a "better" assistant manger worth it? I'm assuming his tactical and other suggestions, like most characters in the game, are based on his skill in those areas, so I'm guessing it's possible to get more accurate advice with a replacement, just like a better scout would offer more accurate player skill level etc? Cheers. Many thanks.
  9. Hey guys, I'm not long into my managerial career with Arsenal. Now, I'm not the most knowledgable football tactician, and I was wondering if many of you (managing top flight clubs) vary your tactics etc from what your assistants suggest. Cheers. Grant
  10. Hey guys, when the first half of play ends, a screen appears with basic stats etc. Down the bottom (in the middle of the screen) are several boxes. The top two have something above saying "Best Performers". However, the two boxes with player information below says nothing above. At the end of the game, something similar appears, and the two bottom boxes do say "Could do with improviong" or some such. Is this a glitch I'm experiencing at the end of the first half? It's not a biggy, just wondering if I'm missreading the info displayed. All the best for the new year! Grant.
  11. Hello managers, First, a very Happy New Year to you all! Question: how much of an impact does the weather have on a game (players)? Let me rephrase. Does the weather have an impact? Cheers. Grant.
  12. Hey, I guess this is a very novice issue. I'm trying to follow the introductory advice given by my assistant manager. He suggests a couple of players for "central indirect" freekicks, but when I go the set piece screen I only have options for indirect deep/wide. Can someone point me in the right direction please? Grant.
  13. Hey, Thank you for the reply. I think I've missed something; where can I adjust league detail to max? Grant.
  14. Hello fellow managers, I've just purchased this years' version and am about to start my career (probably as Arsenal). Before I do however, I was wondering how many leagues (and which ones) you guys have in your game. Also, could someone tell me, is it the amount of RAM that mainly dictates the number of leagues your system can run? Many thanks. And all the best for the new year! Grant.
  15. Hello Kubi, You and CFuller are so right to mention the wide variety of PC hardware and configurations! And I should know this better than most; I built my own PC and took a long time selecting from literally hundreds of different parts before finally ordering them. Ah, I'm buying it. Grant.
  16. Hey CFuller, Thank you for taking the time to respond. Regarding Steam reviews, this is why I posted here. What worries me are the strongly worded posts follwing an update: "This f'ing game crahes now, this piece of **** game"and so on. Grant.
  17. Hey managers, Firstly, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!. For the last nine years I preordered FM without hesitation. This year, however, I didn't have the funds to do the same. So here I am with Steam offering 25% off and credit card in hand. But I'm looking at all the negative reviews and feedback, and I'm left wondering...are these people being overly critical about the game and/or performance, or do they have a legitimate grudge? And this is frustrating me because I do not like my mind being made up by others. Anyway, let me ask the question: given the amount of hours I'll probably get out of this game, do you guys feel that at this stage it's worth a buy? All the best for the new year! Grant.
  18. Hello, Nick. I am looking forward to this year's release, like always. I really don't want my original post to come accross as moany. I guess I'm just a little frustrated. But, hey, I'm sure I'll get my money's worth.
  19. Rorys, I don't buy the game to "keep up with the rat race", that wouldn't make sense to me at all. I buy the game because I enjoy the simulation, and I will gladly do so again provided this years' game has evolved enough. I would simply like to see what that evolution entails. Also, I agree with the previous post; they don't have to offer the discount at all, but as they do, I think it a little cheeky not to give those who qualify for said 25% off sufficient information about the new version so that we may make an informed choice. I'm not moaning, simply asking for more information than is currently available. Because, as I said in a similar post in the Steam forums, they know what those features are - they must, with only weeks away from release. So why not tell us now?
  20. Hello fellow managers, I, like many, am a big fan of the FM series. And I, like many, am looking forward to this years' interation. However, before I dig deep and plump my cash down on the metaphorical table and opt for the Contract Extension Bonus offer of a 25% discount (which ends tomorrow), I would like a somewhat detailed feature list. Which brings me to my point: why are SI waiting to give us details on the new features? Ultimatel;y, why are they giving us, their loyal fans, such a short time to decide on whether grab the pre-order bonus? Are they sceptical about wether these features will be well received? I mean, whatever changes/additions are being implemented, they would have been decided upon some time ago. I want to buy the game, but I would like some information first please. Take care, guys. Grant.
