  1. All looks good, but I did ask the following question for FM18 - and didn't receive a reply. "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?" Does anyone know whether we will be free to position our players where we want for set pieces?
  2. I've been playing long enough to know the answer to this - but I haven't as yet!

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.

    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.

    Unlockable - Boost Bank Balance

    Hi Lucas Tablet - Ipad Air 2
  7. 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

    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/ Thanks

    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.
  11. 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)
  12. Please can somebody confirm whether the pre- game editor can be used with FM17 Touch. I play FM on my pc and laptop but was thinking of buying a tablet for travelling. Thanks
  13. Unfortunately I would have to agree. I'm only at the beginning of a new game (36.4Mb save) and it is taking 95 seconds to a SSD.

    downloads store error

    The In Game Editor finally loaded last night but Steam/Sega have taken the money twice - once for the failed attempt on 7th Nov and again last night. I have 2 Steam emails both confirming the purchase(s). Still no response from Steam when I raised the problem with them on the 9th. Presumably the money goes to SI/Sega, but at least I'm up and running. 12.11.14 - Steam have refunded my duplicate purchase.

    downloads store error

    I had the same problem. Topped up my "Steam Wallet" and after a couple of attempts I was able to purchase the "In Game Editor". I have an email confirmation of this from Steam, but it does not appear in my game - or not that I can see (My wife says that I am rubbish (nice version) at finding things. Is this all related to the same problem?
