  1. I too have been suffering from terrible lag, in moving between screens, continuing day to day and especially in 3D matches. However recently after playing around with NVidia control panel settings (Manage 3D settings) I have been able to reduce the lag considerably. So I thought I'd share my settings in case it is of benefit to anyone else.
  2. I have delegated most of my staff recruitment. As a result a loan manager has been hired. I have taken control of "Finding development loans for young players", but every time I load the game the loan manager is assigned to it, so I effectively have to take control every time I load the game. I have even fired the loan manager and taken control, but a new loan manager is immediately hired and the setting is once again delegated to him. If I take control of a task, it should stay that way and not be overridden.
  3. I found the issue with the Application Error. The games always lag for me in 3D, so I had been trying different settings to get the game to play smoothly, so I added a launch option to steam I found in the forums to see if it helps (which it clearly didn't), but forgot to take it away. Anyhow, I'm still getting a lot of lag when running 3D, so maybe you can use my dxdiag to see if you spot anything?
  4. Switched to public beta yesterday, and it worked fine. Today I cannot start the game as the screen is black before eventually displaying an Applicaton Error. Attached is the crash dump and dxdiag file. FM 2020 v20.2.4.1336959 (2020.01.17 23.04.32).dmp DxDiag.txt
  5. What a shame that FM is so uninteresting to play this year. I always liked to indulge in a bit of FM during the holidays, but the obvious issues, and the fact it brings my powerful machine to a grinding halt (strangely enough even after I've closed the game), has made it more a chore than a pleasure. I don't regret buying it, but the game seems a bit like Arsenal these days. Looks promising but more often than not disappoints. I really enjoyed FM19, so it's hard to believe that FM20 could veer so far off into the path of disappointment.
  6. I have played PSG - 3 seasons - Didn't score a single free kick Man City - 3 seasons - Scored 2 free kicks (De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva) Arsenal - 4 seasons - Scored 1 free kick (Marco Asensio) That's 10 seasons with top class players and only 3 free kicks made it into the back of the net. The AI did even worse. I have never had a free kick scored against me.
  7. Really disappointed with FM this year. I usually play FM until around March time before I lose interest, but this year I started to lose interest around mid December. My main interest has generally been creating my own tactic and watching my team play nice attractive football that leads me to success and sometimes disappointment, but nonetheless I can see the result of my efforts being reflected on the pitch. Like every year trial and error brings me to something I like to play a career game with, however this years mindless long shots and overpowered goalkeepers (Man Utd managed 90+ points each season and won CL 3 years in a row primarily because De Gea rarely conceded a goal), have left me bored.
  8. During the match in the team ratings screen when a substitute is made, how does one get the substitute to take the place of the player substituted thus avoiding having to scroll down?
  9. This started to occur for me when I moved to OS X Yosemite during FM 15 and it's still the same for FM 16. I haven't switched to El Capitan yet. See this thread http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/407649-Game-pauses-when-using-another-application-like-chrome-15-1-3 where gabross explains the reason being to do with the OS X "app nap" functionality.
  10. Impression (so far playing Beta and Full): Disappointed Reason: In comparison to FM 14 I do not see an improvement, if anything it's a step back What's most important to me when playing Game speed FM 14: 7/10 - Multiple leagues loaded and it ran fine (can always be faster but can't complain) FM 15: 4/10 - Running a single league on my mac and international breaks take up to 20 mins to get past Squad screen FM 14: 8/10 - Did what I wanted it to do FM 15: 4/10 - Can't resize columns, so I rarely visit it anymore Tactics screen FM 14: 8/10 - Did what I wanted it to do FM 15: 4/10 - Too much head tennis between position and roles, and no longer right click option to insert/remove player 3D Director camera FM 14: 6/10 - Not as realistic as one would like, but still my favourite view FM 15: 4/10 - Had to switch over to elevated camera because the animations just don't look right in Director view Playing a match FM 14: 7/10 - Always room for improvement, but it was still enjoyable FM 15: 4/10 - Bad defending (near post is a no defender zone) I know that SI will have a lot of example as to how FM 15 is better than FM 14, but for me and how I enjoy playing the game, it is, in it's current state a step back.
  11. Thanks very much I can see it now. I had looked at this tab before, but never noticed it sitting alone up in the right hand corner.
  12. The only time I ever see a player described as a wonderkid is in the news section when they appear like this. However when I look in the players profile or anywhere else I don't see wonderkid written anywhere. Is the news section the only place where a player is described as a wonderkid?
  13. I've been doing this since my first season (In season 2025/26 I loaned out around 48 players which brought in almost £100m). Not so easy to do this anymore as it has become harder to buy the best youngsters since 14.2 patch. I would estimate income from loan fees to be somewhere between £500m - £700m over the 13 season I have played.
  14. Yes it can. I have various rules about when I loan out players. But basically I wait until they are TAC (or sometimes I'm happy with TIN) before loaning them out. The exception to the above is if they request to be loaned out, or if they are too old to just play in my reserves.
  15. I never asked for loan fees until FM 14, when I realised I could make a good bit of money out of it. Noticed that the highest anyone will offer is £200k per month. This year I have loaned out 30 of my players, mostly under 21 (Arsenal 2029) which brings me £5.6m per month, which is about £60m for the season.
