  1. Hi there, I'm trying to create my own Club overview panel and everything is to hell in a handbasket at the moment. One thing I am trying to do is to create a Vertical arrangement of the honours widget. This is how far I have got. Right now i have two problems :- I've managed to make a basic container for the widget and turn it into a vertical scroll box but not found how to re-align the trophies inside it. I think I've traced the file that needs to be changed to the "honours info panel" I need to create a new version of "honours info panel" so it does not clash with the original file used on the "History > Overview" page in FM19. but I don't fully understand how to do this and how to get the right files talking to each other. Any help will be appreciated, Thank You. Here is some extra screenshots, and the files I'm using at the moment (as a skin) Skin Files Skin.rar
  2. It only the terminology that's different. go to Preferences and see if there is an English (UK) option.
  3. Sorry if this is anwered, Is there anyway of searching for clubs with "B teams". ones that are not independent from their main team and are without Unique IDs
  4. @Peter Schlemil I'm no editor guru, and its been a few years since I've done anything with "academies", but I think the answer is Yes you can. Your best bet is to try it yourself and test it out and see what happens. Some things to note though; If the academy is going to be in a playable league, I think there used to be issues with them signing players they shouldn't, so that might need testing FM 19 editor I think has changed some things with how teams like this are handled so it might be worth looking at how a current acedemy like Clairefontaine is handled. If your expecting the Cypriot academy to produce a lots of World class newgens, They might be restricted by fact they based in Cyprus, a country that doesn't usually produce many good players . So you might want to look at the nation settings for Cyprus and make some changes there. If in your post IRL = In real life, then that academy might already be in the Database and you just need to set up the affiliation. Setting up the academy has an amateur team, means Everton will not have any advantage signing their players, because there are no contracts and anybody can come and offer a player a contract at anytime. However setting up the affiliation so "Help with facilities" is selected (I think) will increase the chance of Cypriot newgens being in Evertons intake.

    [North America] Data Issues

    Found this by accident: Daz Meeham (Assistant manager of Turks & Caicos) is duplicated ID: 82082568 ID: 82084682 First one has an extra History entry. Not sure whixh one should be correct
  6. @herne79 @Zemahh Thanks, I should of said I meant FM18. I'd thought so, but thought I'd check if anyone found it useful. Its easy to miss things on this game sometimes. Didn't know this sub menu was thing until It was mentioned in the stream. So its good to check.
  7. Hi There, I was watching the FM19 steam a few days ago and was curious that the guys was using the Tactical Briefing. Its something I didn't really understand, didn't use, and then forgot about So a couple of questions. - What are the pro's and con's of this feature? - Am I actually doing anything wrong by using the "Skip briefing" for every match?
  8. Hi there, For FM 18 the time controls inmatch are hidden under a sub menu. If this continues going forward I think there should be keyboard shortcuts for them. I Think they should be has follows , - rewind . - fast foreward Crtl + , - previous highlight Crtl + . - Next highlight

    [FM18] Club Overview Panel

    Hi, Can someone with this problem please? I've been mucking aroung with D_Lo_s panel and Im trying to get a different type of Key Employess into the key overview panel. The problem is nothing shows up at all except a space and I cannot see where I've gone wrong and why it will not appear. At one point I managed to get an empty box to show, but replacing it with the Key employees panel it dissapears. All the .xml files seem to be pointing in the right place, Iv'e removed containers to see if its a size issue but I cannot get beyond the page showing an empty space. I don't understand why this is happening and I'm well and truly stuck. Thank You in Advance. panels.rar
  12. Formation: 442 Diamond Narrow Unfortunately due a few problems such as a broken mouse, and illness. I haven't really had much time to play much over the last few weeks so I've only just finished preseason. Hopefully I can update much sooner now. Notes I'm not where to fit this into my post, so I'd thought I'll open up with it as I fell its worth noting. For the purposes of this experiment, I have put my Director of Football in charge of hiring and firing all my staff except for my Assistant Manager and put my staff in total control of Training. I feel that for such a short term experiment I'm not really losing anything by doing this. For training I would of perhaps liked to re-train a couple of players positions e.g winger Matteo Politano into a better AMC, so that is a draw back, but I'm not going to turn water into wine over the course of one season. So its a couple of things I don't have to worry about. Tactic 1 To be honest, has will be explained later, I'm not really happy with my tactics so far. So things will be tweaked but this forms the basis of what should be my tactic this season. On the face of it, it is quite a vanilla formation with few specialist roles but that is OK for me. I'm looking for a style that is a bit in the middle when it comes to everything. I want my players to press the opposition defensively and close down gaps but not to point where we are exposed by counter attacks and through balls, there is not a lot of pace in my back line. I want my players to look for forward passes and get the ball forward quickly, but I want to do this without giving the ball away cheaply, trying aimless long balls also I don't want my team to bypass the midfield and lose the strength that having four players gives me. The control mentality gives me two things I'm looking for in my team. It pushes my defence up a little bit, which I''m hoping helps push the opposition back and keep their players in a deeper position. I'm hoping that this will counteract my lack of numbers down the wings and help defend any attacking full back - winger combo by keeping them in a more defensive position. Helps open up opposition defences. With a control mentality giving players an opportunity to make riskier passes and make more runs. I'm hoping that going forward it help unsettle defences and catch players unawares by moving the ball forward fairly quickly. Performance So far the performance in pre season has been encouraging. Our first game against Krasnodar used different tactics a more aggressive attacking style and it failed badly with Sassuolo ending up being 3-0 down at half time, after being dominated. we were lucky it was not worse. and the tactic was ditched at half time. We were lucky to come back with a draw. So far we have been able to dominate teams and it shows in our results. A lot of the play has been in our third of the pitch and we have been able to beat teams with swashbuckling performances. We are having more shots on goal, generally more possession then our opponents and they have struggled to even get out of their half at times. The Full backs in my team have provided good width, getting forward and being able to cross the ball to create opportunities and provide goals. However as good as the results look on paper they do hide a few issues that could become a problem during season. When in possession we have struggled to create much through the centre of the pitch. The front 3 have at times struggled to find space passing routes have been closed off. This has led to our team being forced taking quite a few pot shots at goal, long shots that never really have a chance of going in. This in turn means our shots on target are quite low. The ratio between shots and shots on target have ended up too often below 50%. All of a sudden the amount of shots we are having does not look so impressive. A lot of our goals so far have come from our full backs getting forward and putting balls into the box. This isn't a problem but I was hoping for more through the middle, keeping our opponents guessing and being unpredictable. If the team we are playing against can deal with our full backs and defend crosses it is going to be a struggle go get goals. Defensively there are concerns too. So far in pre-season We have not seen a team really come and attack us. Even Boca Juniors, who I hoped would come and try and attack us seemed happy sitting back and letting us attack. I worry what will happen when a Juventus or Roma come and play against us. We also haven't really had any teams with good width, playing a 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1 play against us. We do however seem somewhat prone to counter attacks. A couple of teams have tried bypassing our midfield with long balls from centre-backs to strikers and have had some joy, using the lack of pace of our centre backs getting some goals or good chances on goal. Overall I'm a bit afraid of how we will do this season. My tactics have the feeling that could fall apart once teams start playing a certain way, and I think Work needs to be done. I don't think we have been truly tested with the friendlies so far.
  13. Can I ask a stupid question? (well I'm going to anyway) Are the Competition fixes in 3.0 and 3.1 applied to the Original database, as well was the January one?
  14. Thanks for this. At first I thought this one of the less interesting formations to try, but now I have looked at the Sassulo squad. Its going to be a little more difficult then I anticipated. The Central Midfielders seem quite defensive and its going crucial to get the right balance. The Full backs seem a little weak considering I probably need them to bomb forward to create width. And the front 3 partnership seems like square pegs in round holes. Who is going play AMC for instance? Do I really want an attacking role like a Shadow striker or a Trequartista behind a front two. If not I am lacking options a little. Being on "Day 1" still, I feel right now like I need 4 or 5 players to get the squad suited to the formation. Obviously that's not an option. The first 11 should be OK, but keeping the team fit and injury free is going to be crucial I feel. It's going to be interesting to see what I can conjuror up.
  15. Hi, I'm a bit of a lurker round here. I read last years thread (after finding it about 8 months late ) and am glad to see it back. Is there any room for a johnny-come-lately? I think I can end up being too rigid with my tactics and something like this would really help pushing the boat a little and seeing if I can survive outside my comfort zone. No doubt I'll be sacked within the first 6 months, if I'm accepted, but hey 'ho. That's half the fun isn't it. Cheers
