    FM2012 difficulty.

    You can ask for a parent club it doesn't mean the board will agree to you having one.

    This should be fixed in this patch

    Official Patch 11.2 Feedback thread

    There is a greater chance that they will becoming happy again. But it isn't guaranteed as it depends on a few different factors.
  4. I wouldn't advise using this as all those changes do is break all the unhappiness conversations. If you get an unhappy player you could get some messed up conversations. The changes have simply delayed the issue that has to be fixed in code as players can still progress to requesting to be transfer listed.

    How do I call a Backroom Staff Meeting?!

    Just managed to get this to here and I've fixed it for a future patch. The game wasn't stopping when the invite was sent and taking you to the inbox meaning the button was removed before you got the chance to read the news item.

    If somebody could log this in the bugs forum with a save game and I'll take a look at it.

    Check the date the mail was sent and then the game date. The news item have been generated and you missed it. You can get to the backroom advice at any point from your squad screen.

    Not 100% sure what your issue is. Are you getting invited to a meeting and then there is no advice there? You can go the screen at any point from the link in the first team squad screen. Every 2 weeks you'll be remind to go to a meeting which will come as a message with a button to take you to the meeting.

    Dev Team: Any changes to MLS?

    Rules are updated for the 2009 season. There has been improvements regarding AI teams signing Designated Players and the main new feature is the ability to get your Assistant to complete a report of possible Designated PLayers that are interested in joining the club.

    Originally each staff member had there own report. But in testing it was found that the useful information was lost, instead the short seperate advice get straight to the point. The advice needs to be individual as well so the action buttons can be present as well.

    This is just a classification of the player preferred moves rather than a new training category.

    Not in the backroom advice. It was felt that it was unfair to penlise players in the lower leagues by them not receiving the full range of advice. To have good knowledge of one of the six areas in the lower leagues requires a lower level than in the higher leagues. Meaning just because a staff member has good recruitment knowledge when at a club in non league doesn't mean he will have good knowledge if you took him to a club higher up. This also means a staff member with poor recruitment knowledge in the top league could still have good knowledge to cope in the lower leagues. Hope this makes sense.

    You've missed read the text slightly. Its says "Forest Green do well against teams who play a normal defensive line", in this example in the players current tactic they are playing a normal defensive line. This comments only appears if the opposition do well against the tactics you are using, meaning you might want to alter your defensive line in the upcoming match. There are also comments pointing out what tactics the opposition struggle against and thus you might want to adopt your tactics to use these instructions.

    I'm afraid this won't be in for FM2010 but I like this idea and I'll add it to the growing list for additions for future versions. This is a long term feature as the possibilities for the kinds of advice you receive covers most of the game. Once you've had the chance to use it for yourself and additions you'd like to see are more than welcome
