    Marking at wide free kicks

    Just bumping as I am still short of an answer. Thanks
  2. I've been playing long enough to know the answer to this - but I haven't as yet! When defending a wide free kick (And to some degree corners) I do not have an option to place a man outside the area. The only options seem to be "join the wall", "mark players in the area" or "stay forward". This inevitably leads to the opposition playing the free kick to one of their players just outside the area - with none of my players being able to close him down. I have to say that my team also take advantage of this when having attacking wide free kicks. Why cannot we place players anywhere on the pitch for set pieces? Apologies if I've missed something simple. I have searched without success.

    can't start new game

    Hi Neil Yes I am using the Pre-game Editor if that is what you mean. I tried deleting cache, preferences and re-verifying, but no improvement. Edit: 18.1.2 seems to have sorted it - thanks

    can't start new game

    Similar problem. No problem with beta but trying to start a new career seems to take forever (Sorry - I should have timed it, but it came as a surprise). Having read some other posts I will plod on and see if there is an improvement over the next couple of days. Edit: 3 mins to reach Menu. 7 mins from choosing "Career" to reaching the point where I can choose leagues and database.

    Pitch brightness issues

    Hi Jack (Joyce) I have the same problem with a very light pitch and a light coloured ball - I use "Sideline" view. Before I attempt to attach a PKM it would help if the ball colour could be changed ie make it darker. I changed standard and winter ball colours to a dark orange but these changes did not take effect for my next match. I can't find it at the moment but I seem to remember seeing an SI post where changing the ball colour is a problem/bug that is yet to be resolved. Is this still the case?

    Samsung Tab S3

    Unfortunately the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 does not appear on the "Supported Devices" list for FMT 2017, as it is fairly new, so I suspect that nobody has played it on that tablet. A moderator/SI should be able to confirm this.

    iPad Air 2 - Not updating to 17.3

    Hi Angelos Yes the download has started. Thanks for your help.
  8. As in the title. I have FM Touch 2017. I have 17Gb of spare storage. I have restarted several times but no joy. I have not long had my iPad Air 2 - how will I know if the update has started? When I start the game it still states 17.2. Any advice please.

    Unlockable - Boost Bank Balance

    Hi Lucas Tablet - Ipad Air 2
  10. It says in the FAQ's that "Boost bank balance" can be purchased multiple times. Does this mean that I have to purchase every time I start a new game (I presume not?). or Does it mean that you can have mutiple boosts in one game eg. 2 x 50m, 3 x 50m etc? Thanks

    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Thanks Welshace
  12. Hello Alex Apologies but I am repeating a question I asked in the "New Laptop/PC" thread: I am looking to buy a tablet to play FM Touch 17 whilst travelling. Normally I would post this in the "Touch Forum" but the Asus tablet below has a 2.33 GHz processor and 4GB RAM. Would the Android OS prevent it from playing the PC version of Touch or is there a chance it would work? https://www.asus.com/es/Tablets/ASUS_ZenPad_S_80_Z580CA/specifications/ Please excuse the Spanish (I live in Tenerife) but I hope the spec is self explanatory. The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 Z580C is listed under supported devices but not the CA above. Would this play the tablet version of Touch 17? Thank you

    FMT 2017 Compatibility Issue

    I was considering purchasing the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 CA, but I see the supported devices list only lists the Asus ZenPad S 8.0 C (Difference is CA has a faster processor and 4GB RAM). I've only just realised that Play Store won't allow you to purchase FM17 Touch unless you have a supported device. I thought that if I purchased a "better spec" device then I could at least attempt to play the game. Please can SI confirm that the CA version is in fact not compatible.
  15. I'm looking to buy a tablet purely for playing Touch whilst travelling. I know it's not on the "Supported" list but has anybody tried Touch 17 on the: Lenovo Yoga Book Specs: Processor: Intel® Atom™ x5-Z8550 Processor(2M Cache, Quad-Core, Up to 2.4 GHz) OS: Android 6.0 RAM: 4GB Storage: 64GB (Expands up to 128 GB) Size : 10.1" FHD IPS(1920 x 1200)
