  1. I've noticed that my advanced playmaker and wingers don't get good ratings but I put this down to my tactics, I've tried several different things and different combinations to try and change this but nothing as yet that I can say has made a huge difference, however the GK ratings imo are massively flawed and have been for such a long time I cant remember anything different, I can win a game 5-2 where he's made 0 saves but gets a 7.4 and another where I lose 2-0 he's made 7 or 8 saves but gets a 6.4, none of the problems in fm17 are as bad as fm16 where the RB was the best player in every save I had.
  2. played 4 game months now since I changed the skin back to default and had no crashes, fan still the same though, do you know if its all custom skins causing problems?
  3. this isnt a 4K, looked at 2 and went for this one because only major difference was 4k but also £200 difference, I turned down the graphics quality to medium 2 days ago on HarryRoberts1975 advice and the fan has calmed down, certainly not completely but its no longer unbearable, I still notice a difference in the sound when the match day starts, my screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 and I run FM in windowed Also my save does keep crashing from time to time, sometimes it crashes when I try to change the background opacity, it doesnt always crash but has a few times, and a couple of times crashed randomly, im using OPZ Elite skin, and i've not edited in any way
  4. its not a laptop, its an all in one
  5. the fan in the computer goes completely nutty every time I start the match day, its always been quite up until FM17, its not an old computer (bought it this year) never had an issue on FM16 and the fan the rest of the time is extremely quite, start the match day and it sounds like a steam train, I've no idea if it's my machine or if FM is making work too hard, if its the fans problem, graphics card, processor etc. I've attached my dxdiag (as seems to be the norm). Thanks in advance DxDiag.txt
  6. i've had 2 random crashes in my save, its still very early in the save, first one was after a day (game day) and the other after around a month, the only thing that I thought it could be was that both times i'd left the computer untouched for about 30 minutes, but I do that quite a lot
  7. ahh ok, sorry should have known that really, with that now being said, his attributes are probably more or less right
  8. there isn't a movement stat that you can see, so i've no idea what value it is for him, the positioning description is "the attribute reflects the ability of a player to read a situation and manoeuvre themselves into the best possible location to deal with unfolding events" without anything else to go on i'd say that kind of covers movement in that, perhaps anticipation could also cover what Chris Wood is good at
  9. Chris Wood looks quite fair - he's still quite inconsistent particularly when it comes to his strength, some weeks he gets bullied others he puts himself about, the last month i'd say he justifies 15/16, the only stat I'd say is low would be positioning, most of his goals come from 10 yards or less and are often tap ins because of the good position he's in, last nights goal was typical Chris Wood (although his technique for that was excellent) he's actually more of a poacher than the game gives him credit for. Personally think O'Kane/Phillips is about right, its just Mowatt's physical, having watched him for 3 years I think 10's for his physical is fair, technique wise he's very good Out of all those players he's the only one who i'd majorly disagree with, which I think is pretty good going, and on attributes everybody's opinions are different
  10. I believe the Patel's have left the Leeds board, there no longer on the website on Jansson although I know you haven't touched him, I do think his left foot should be improved, he currently plays LCB, uses his left quite a bit and doesnt look poor with it, wouldn't say it needs much but he shouldn't be a "Right Only" have to agree with macca on mowatt, he's more a AMC than CM, he just doesn't have the physical attributes to play there, he hasnt played there for a while, Monk currently plays him out wide, although I definitely wouldn't say he accomplished as a AML, I do think his Acceleration, Agility and Pace are too high when you compare him to other players in the squad particularly some like O'Kane, IMO those attributes should be about 10 maybe even lower everything else looks spot on though KUTGW
  11. I think theres a general problem in fm is that players PA isnt high enough, i'd like to see players PA be higher but more difficult to reach that, players determination, ambition and professionalism should have a greater bearing on whether a player reaches his full potential, 10 years ago would have leon britton, ashley williams, jamie vardy, jermaine beckford, michael kightly, had the PA to reach the PL, none of these players were thought of highly, how many non-league or L2 players have a PA above 140? i'm not saying everyone should be getting CA to 140 to maybe at least the chance to
  12. I've noticed a few strange squad number changes, when a player signs for a club maybe they get a strange number but when a player has been there a while and changes to what I'd call a strange number, I know players change all the time (aguero to 10) but Wayne Rooney took the number 13, Coutinho is now 6 at Liverpool, Alexis Sanchez took 12 at Arsenal, Ozil and Walcott also changed to 17 & 8 but I think they do have them as preferred numbers also noticed a few wingers when signing for different clubs taking the number 6 shirt Matt Phillips went to Ipswich, Marc Albrighton to Norwich and Jordon Ibe to Southampton these are all in 1 save and im in 2019 - only Rooney wasn't a regular (now gone to Qatar) but giving him 13 still seems strange to me
  13. anyone got any thoughts on this? wanting an all in one to save space - but still wanting maximum power, just a bit concerned as to why its cheaper than other similar models, is graphic or memory rubbish? any advice would be helpful like to play with around 6 or 7 leagues with about 80,000 players at the start
  14. thanks, it wouldnt let me confirm the skin until I clicked "sidebar icons-only" so I didnt think it let would let me do afterwards, it worked though but because the writing is white and me being leeds (white sidebar) it didnt really work, so gone back to the icons fantastic skin btw
  15. I know I must be the only one but I like the bigger side bar, anyway to re-enable it?
