    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

If this has has been selected via Preferences page the option appears blank although It is still selected if you leave the blank option selected. Steps to Reproduce: Go into preferences before starting a new game. Change Auto save option to "After Matches" Start New Game Get to the point when FM wants you to save the Game.
  3. @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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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

    Funny Screenshots Thread

    This, apparently, is a real football player... This must a joke by the researchers?
  7. (NOTE: If a mod can think of a more appropriate title, feel free to change it. I don't really know how else to name the thread) After the ball goes out of play. Te player goes to take a throw in, walks off, and the ball moves on its own back into the match. Begins at at 23:20 (approx) Walker plays through ball wide Hooper runs onto the ball but does not control the ball correctly He runs into the corner flag the ball hits the corner flag and goes out of play for a throw-in The Right Back (Trotman) goes towards the ball to pick it up Gets to the touchline, walks along the touch line towards the half way line without the ball Note: players are waiting/josling, looking towards the ball and not the throw in taker. Ball goes back into play of its own accord (thrown?) Match continues has normal Right Back runs back to where he should be postitoned in open play (Note: Doesn't teleport or magically appear where the throw-in was taken from) Demodave_FM18.3.3 FC United v Nuneaton.pkm

    [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

    Set Piece Files DISAPPEARED!

    I have the same problem has @Lazaru5 and I think he/she is correct about what is happening. I save all my set pieces has "1","2" and "3" for all types. Now I only have one file for each. So it seems rather then saving each type of set piece has a different file. It is overwriting anything with the same name.
  11. Ive got the same problem. It seems as if FM is not leaving the match properly. It goes to this instead of the inbox page. The crowd sound can be heard to and doesn't stop until you have continued to the next day. Everything on that page can be interacted with as if it was the start of the match. I only tried a team talk however. It didn't seem to affect the game anyway. It seems an intermittent problem albeit quite frequent.It happens at random and I cannot find the cause of it. Hope this helps.

    All players are black

    Is this the right place. If other textures within the march engine are black? Pretty much other then the pitch (which here seems a little bright) and the floodlights everything is showing has black. A screen shot is below. Now after the match. I went to view the match again to see what was going on. I changed the graphics settings and everything looked has it should. I continued the game and viewed the match again and it reverted to how it looked below. I'm not sure if this works whilst playing a match,but changing the graphics settings and confirming might be a workaround but this would have to be done for every match. Textures Issue.pkm

    Players attribute popup screen

    Hi I have the same problem. It worked fine last night. Today however- I looked at one staff (Alan Curbishley) on staff search page, via the pop-up. Second staff profile (i Think) i viewed via pop-up had the missing info. Once It happened, All staff had the missing information on all screens Looked at a player on my U23 squad page, via pop-up Looked at squad dynamics by clicking through the bottom left panel Clicked the back button to return to the U23 squad page All players then had the missing info on all screens I saved and exited FM and reloaded the game (Note, I did not do anything like clear the cache) and restarted the game and It fixed. However the two customizable panels on the player pop-up had reset. I now cannot replicate this at all.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
