  1. Hi @Neil Brock Yes when starting a new career game. I've tried with just the premier league loaded (large DB) and several leagues loaded with over 100k players. Both get stuck at the same point for about the same time (naturally the larger game takes longer). I'd say it takes around 10 minutes to move on from that first quarter. Same with Touch. Saved games load no problem.
  2. I actually think it's working; it just takes absolutely ages to load a new game.
  3. No joy clearing cache/reverifying etc.
  4. No crash dumps. I have installed a "name fix" for the various licensing issues but this worked without issue previously. I'll try the cache bits and report back. DxDiag attached. DxDiag.txt
  5. Hi James, Yes I believe so. I manage to get it to work occasionally, but not sure what, if anything, I'm doing differently when it does load.
  6. It's still not working I'm afraid. Any ideas?
  7. Seems to be working on touch now, so I'll try reinstalling the full game and let you know if there are any issues still.
  8. As the title suggests. Running the game via Steam and it is updated fully. The only change to my computer since I last started a new save was Windows update. However, I don't want to go back to an earlier version. This is the same for the full and touch versions. Both been newly installed.
  9. The Bosman Rule only applies in the EU doesn't it?
  10. You are able to tell yourself if a player will get a WP. If he doesn't meet the criteria, he won't get one, no matter his potential (I think).
  11. Youth caps don't count.
  12. Without them you'd run out of players
  13. Just to clarify: you can't choose which regens appear in your squad but you can choose to sign others on 'regen days'. To the OP, there is no list of great regens. Each game produces random ones. I look for decent physical stats and then tailor the other attributes depending on what position I'm looking for. Determination, technique, work rate, passing and first touch are all ones I look out for.
  14. The game automatically generates an influx of regens every year for every team, around March (in England), if the team has sufficient youth facilities (all EPL/Championship teams generally have sufficient youth facilities, no sure about teams below that). You can try to poach other teams' regens before they sign a pre contract, but most of them tend to want to stay I've found. If you go to 'World', 'Transfers', then change the drop down to 'Youth Intake', you will see all newgens for the selected month. I never leave it to HYD, and always scout all of the top EPL/Championship clubs' players. I do the same for the foreign clubs too.
  15. I think I've worked out the problem - instead of choosing "selection" from the drop down menu under "mentality", it was set as "copy of international selection". So I think you were right, it must have been showing international morale. Still not sure why using the editor it showed two different values, but meh, thanks for your help.
