    Zenit
  1. Got it going by turning off 'use licenced kits' in the editor then turning it back on again and also changing the shirt from icon to shirt in the edit Don't know why only the away shirt shows though when the game is loaded and not the home shirt - then I have to turn off 'use licenced kits' which makes the away shirt disappear then when I turn use licenced kits back on both the home and away shirt appear as long as I have changed the shirt form icon to shirt in the edit
  2. I have downloaded a Russian kit pack and am currently managing Zenit. All of the pack loads like do the logos I have downloaded and the facepack, however Zenits home shirt will not. I have checked the number of the id and it appears correct and am not sure why it wont load it into my game - Zenit's away shirt shows up fine and there from the same pack with the same id number - its just the home shirt Can anyone assist the config file reads (Ive highligted Zenits in red for ease), however it appears to be correct: <record> <!-- resource manager options --> <!-- don't preload anything in this folder --> <boolean id="preload" value="false"/> <!-- turn off auto mapping --> <boolean id="amap" value="false"/> <!-- picture mappings --> <!-- the following XML maps pictures inside this folder into other positions in the resource system, which allows this folder to be dropped into any place in the graphics folder and still have the game pick up the graphics files from the correct places --> <list id="maps"> <!-- Generated by FM Graphics Configurator, by HMan --> <record from="amkar_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/130500/kits/home"/> <record from="amkar_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/130500/kits/away"/> <record from="anji_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/130495/kits/home"/> <record from="anji_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/130495/kits/away"/> <record from="cska_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1518/kits/home"/> <record from="cska_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1518/kits/away"/> <record from="dynamo_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1520/kits/home"/> <record from="dynamo_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1520/kits/away"/> <record from="krasnodar_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/58029064/kits/home"/> <record from="krasnodar_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/58029064/kits/away"/> <record from="krasnodar_3" to="graphics/pictures/team/58029064/kits/third"/> <record from="ks_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1523/kits/home"/> <record from="ks_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1523/kits/away"/> <record from="kuban_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/130536/kits/home"/> <record from="kuban_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/130536/kits/away"/> <record from="lokomotiv_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1525/kits/home"/> <record from="lokomotiv_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1525/kits/away"/> <record from="lokomotiv_3" to="graphics/pictures/team/1525/kits/third"/> <record from="mordovia_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/8083031/kits/home"/> <record from="mordovia_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/8083031/kits/away"/> <record from="rostov_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1301104/kits/home"/> <record from="rostov_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1301104/kits/away"/> <record from="rubin_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/130509/kits/home"/> <record from="rubin_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/130509/kits/away"/> <record from="rubin_3" to="graphics/pictures/team/130509/kits/third"/> <record from="spartak_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1529/kits/home"/> <record from="spartak_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1529/kits/away"/> <record from="terek_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/477632/kits/home"/> <record from="terek_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/477632/kits/away"/> <record from="ufa_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/58064627/kits/home"/> <record from="ufa_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/58064627/kits/away"/> <record from="ufa_3" to="graphics/pictures/team/58064627/kits/third"/> <record from="ural_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1533/kits/home"/> <record from="ural_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1533/kits/away"/> <record from="zenit_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/1301108/kits/home"/> <record from="zenit_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/1301108/kits/away"/> </list> </record>
  3. Playing in Russia Premier League following been offered the Zenit job on FM16 and the squad Premiership registration window has asked me to register my players and confirm a day before the transfer window closes. I have 6 bids for players which they have been waiting a week to confirm there contracts I gave them and sign for me. Surely the registration window should shut AFTER the transfer window!!!! See attached screen shots - when Ive managed in other clubs Ive not had this issue - just with the Russain Premiership - it will let me register my loan player but none of the others I have paid for - even though they are listed in the transfer window round up. I will try to use the editor to correct this bug. Normally your inbox will send you a link to register the players after the transfer window closes. This doesnt happen bit if you go to squad screen - registration it will only let you register the loan players and the others are shown as illegible. The window on the inbox is shown as closing before the transfer window closes Players indicated in the red circle are some of the players Ive paid a fee for that it wont let me add to the squad - it will only let me add the loan signing

  5. I've found the editor - cannot it be used to edit saved games - so can I put the players into the squad as they should have been but havn't because of this bug?? If not is there a way around this - as this has ruined my save at the moment that Im 8 months into.
  6. Deffo an issue as the only one I could register is the loan signing - all the others are illegible I am going to have to try and use the editor to put them into the squad as they should be - all other teams there is a registration window at the beginning of the transfer window and also one at the end to register the players you have purchased - can't believe no-one else hasn't picked this up before who have played in Russia and reported it in the bugs forum Can anyone advise where the editor is please on the game - its a long time since I last used it

  8. Just wondered what stats you look for to improve the shooting. My current coaches currently give 3.5 stars and I need to get it upto 4 stars and above. I am currently looking at coaches with attribute ratings of 15 or above in attacking, determination, Level of Discipline and Motivation but on a previous players with a minimum of these wasn't enough to raise the 3.5 stars. Do you need to look for high mental stats as well or is it that there just isn't the coaches available who will come to increase the stars as there are limited numbers with 15 or above in all attributes. If this occurs what is the best combination of attributes to make it work.
  9. I have agreed to the following terms in my contract As part of the deal to fetch me to the club I must agree to the following philosophies Club Background League Position History Current League Overview/Media Predictions The club is doing well situated in 3rd position after 18 games are 4 points off top spot. The club is also participating in the Euro Cup. Affiliates Staff Members Squad Facilities Finances Board Expectations Assessment The club is in third place and has a strong chance of winning the title along with the Euro Cup. It is full on International players and is quite old with nine key players over the age of 30. These players will require replacing with younger quality ones as they will be leaving the club or retiring soon. The previous manager does not appear to have blooded many youngsters into the team in key areas as cover. This is something I need to address. A priority will be strengthening the defence as not only is it old and slow there appears to be not enough quality cover. I will scout some of my old players at Fakel and see if any will be good enough to strengthen my squad - however I don't believe they will be as from my initial assessment the gulf in class between the two clubs is huge (It would have taken me a long time - if ever to train my players to be as the good as the ones I inherited at Zenit). I will also scout Russia's International squad along with anywhere else I think relevant to fetch in some quality youngsters who I am hoping will emulate the success Zenit have had in the past. Otherwise at a huge club like this my job could be on the line as the board will want success

Moscow though was struggling and I did not feel it would be the right step to do. Especially as my new chairman had backed me in the transfer market and broken all Fakel's spending records. I actually began to wonder how much money this local investor had. However, I was getting frustrated for two reasons - one was that no real top class Russian players wanted to join the club - Fakel was just not attractive enough and I am ambitious and want to win Championships - the second was that during the monthly board reviews my chairman started to point out that player sales would be necessary to help the clubs finances. The investor didn't have as much as I thought - he ploughed it in at the beginning only to realise he was running out and needed sales to help the finances. The Zenit manager had handed his notice in to leave for Aston Villa - an English Premiership club which laughed at my interest earlier in the season - could this be the opportunity I was looking for as Zenit are one of the big boys in Russian Football with a 4 star reputation, 3rd in the league and in european competition I really hope that Fakel do well and continue in the Premiership after my departure for years to come I have taken the majority of their backroom staff with me to Zenit and obviously will look at maybe fetching in a few of the players that I signed at Fakel to Zenit should the right circumstances arise and they are good enough for what I need to achieve at Zenit. Hopefully they will appoint a manager who can continue the journey I started with them since the Great Escape.
  11. Just noticed this The team report summary shows 4123 conceding 20 clear cut chances However the same team tactics screen shows them creating 20 clear cut chances and with 14 against Which screen do you use as it is critical when setting up your tactical plans on your game as one seems to be incorrect - the summary screen is taking the green (for) chances and calling it against Any seasoned gamers or SI comment on which one is correct as you need to know for your tactics
  12. FAKEL COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2020-21 Board Expectations Due to me being quite successful during the season - the board allowed me to review the expectations on me of which I accepted. Russian Cup Semi Final - Sparktak Moscow Lst 2 -1 Russian Premier League Manager comments It was always going to be difficult, however with the astute signing that was made the team finished in a very good position and were not in relegation trouble at all. The team struggled to score goals throughout the season and averaged just over a goal per game. This needs to be addressed if we are to become a force in the Premiership. Off the field struggles with a takeover saga did not help the club at critical stages of the season.

During the season the Hull City job became available as Zidane was sacked after a poor run of results left them in the relegation zone in the Premier League. I had to apply for it as the club is the one that I support. Even though I was a 'Leading Candidate' I did not make the shortlist for an interview. TRANSFERS Players Staff Manager comments Players were brought in that were young enough and good enough to compete in the Premier League this will bode the club well for the future. It was hoped that the players that were brought in would compliment and improve the squad of which the majority were decent premier league players. CLUB STATS AND AWARDS CLUB TAKEOVER The takeover saga seemed to drag on a age. Local Investor's Alexey Degtyarev original takeover fell through at the first attempt and was rejected by the board. The chairman was still threatening to quit at the end of the season. Long after the season had finished the takeover saga was still going on I was getting concerned about the strengthening of the squad and if I will be able to sign any players due to the embargo and not knowing how much money I would have next season. The saga was becoming tiresome and frustating During this period I applied for the Clement Foot job who were a French team with a 'Tycoon' owner - I hoped that they would look at me favourable - however they just 'laughed off any interest'. I also applied for the Swansea job who had just been relegated from the English Premiership - they were in alot of debt. I ended up being a 'Leading Candidate' for the role and attended an interview. The takeover occurred and I was surprised in Fakels counter offer of how much the Local Investors was going to invest !! - I decided to stay at Fakel. NEXT SEASON With the new transfer kitty and wage budget raising from £1.6million (transfer) and £8.5million (wage) to an alot larger amount I feel I can compete better in the transfer market financially. The difficulty will be attracting the right players to an unfashionable club. I need to sign some strikers who can score goals as the return last season was unacceptable. I will also try to recruit mainly Rusian players - however if needs must I will have to accept foreign ones. My aims for next season are to finish mid-table and that is what I have told the players that I aim to do. The takeover has slowed some of my recruitment down as I would have liked to have had the players in early to work with - but this will not be the case.
  13. So im managing in Russia and my favourite teams has sacked the manager after a run of 7 games and 7 defeats puts them in the relegation zone. Do I apply - of course I do. A leading member of the board and the press state that I am a leading candidate for the job. Do I get the job - No I don't even get an interview!!!!! Leading candidate - yeah right!!
  14. On FM16 can anyone advise where it shows the current chairman type - ie local businessman, tycoon etc... My current chairman is currently selling the club and Im interested to know what type of chairman he was so I can judge him against the new chairman who may come in who in the newsfeeds states he is an investor. I want to try and determine if my clubs future finances will be better or worse and to that I would like to find out what type of chairman my exisiting one is. Im sure I have seen it in pervious FMs but can't find it in 16
  15. FAKEL COMPETITIONS OVERVIEW Season 2019-20 Board Expectations Russian Cup 4th Round - Sokol Lst 1-1 (p) Russian First Division Manager comments From saving the club from relegation the previous season to winning the league in my first full season in charge is a great achievement. What was disapointing is that following winning the title with 4 matches to spare the team seemed to go on their holidays early winning 1 drawing 1 and losing 2 of the remaining matches.

The singning I made towards the end of last season helped along with the squad strengthening this season. This combined with the youth player like Butov and Bulavin bode well for the future. My scouts have already been looking for talent for next seasons campaign. CLUB STATS AND AWARDS GOALKEEPER OF YEAR Timur Akmurzin MIDFIELDER OF YEAR Ivan Solovjov NEXT SEASON The team did it, I will need to strengthen the team so that they can avoid relegation. Looking at the squad reports there a alot of players at the club who are decent Premier League players already or have the potential to be one. With a few astute signing I believe we could avoid relegation next season. My aim is to establish Fakel as a Premiership team. The league we have been promoted to are ranked 8th in Europe - if I am successful I may get some big clubs knocking on my door
