  1. I like to keep the game at a good speed yet only have an average computer. That means leagues from a handful of countries so I have 'theme' saves of a group of neighbouring countries - UK & Ireland, South America etc with all their divisions loaded. As I play lower leagues what's going on elsewhere isn't a big issue. I did once try loading up the top divisions from the big leagues so the Champions League and Europa League were more competative but they added noticeably to processing time and I wasn't interested in seeing what was happening there so I deleted them.
  2. Could it be to do with the rule that a player can only sign for two clubs in a season? It doesn't look like it from the screenshots but on the other hand I had the same or similar message when I tried to sign a player without an explanation too and I had to work it out for myself.
  3. Is it to do with Bury going and someone needing a bye?
  4. I've only been relegated once, when I took over a newly promoted French side with only greyed players a few editions back. The challenge proved too much for me. I was heading for relegation with Bath City last year, but the board took action before it was mathematically confirmed. A handful of other times I've jumped.
  5. Sorry to hijack the thread, but it saves me starting a new one. Is there any way to give myself a nickname? You could in 19 but if you can in FM 20 it's in a different place. And you can edit appearance from the start screen or from your profile in a save.
  6. I stopped using sounds after my first ever CM match, not a reflection on the sounds which I've not listened to for over a decade I'd just rather have music.
  7. I also had match engine lag problems with FM19 so I downloaded an FM19 skin at random and that fixed the issue too I have long term save in FM19 I had to give up due to lag so I'm looking forward to getting back into it
  8. For me the Flut dark has very nearly resolved the issue. I still get minor judders with really big crowds but it's definitely playable, so thank you to those who tested and reported this fix .
  9. Good luck with the writing. I've managed to fit in both writing a novel and FM, so they're not mutually exclusive
  10. You're right of course, and I hadn't taken into account that I was playing pre season friendlies with my non league side in front of a handful of spectators. I loaded up a game as Man City and holidayed to the Community Shield, and the 3D couldn't cope with 80,000 spectators. It was good enough though when I switched off the crowd. So, playing in front of an empty stadium makes my matches watchable, but takes away the immersion - the reason I don't like 2D.
  11. Thanks for this tip, for me the Nvidia suggestions seems to be working at high 50s fps, after a couple of tests on both FM19 and 20. However, as I posted yesterday (above) I had a false dawn so chickens haven't been counted yet.
  12. I have an update... I played 2 FM20 matches earlier, the lag had gone, fps went no lower than 57 and was usually 60 and it was the smoothest I've ever seen an FM match. I went back to FM19 to see how that went, and it had the usual lag but showed 60fps throughout. Tried again with FM20, which now lags again as bad as usual, into the 'normal' 40-55 fps. No idea what I did to get the good results earlier, I've not changed or updated anything on my PC, and also changed nothing before going back to the low fps. I'm playing the demo, not the full game.
  13. I'm sorry, being a technophobe I've no idea how to help with the bottom two bullets. In terms of the first three which I hope is some help: * I'm only playing the FM20 demo and have noticed it. It's just about okay on 2D or Data Analyst view, but too hard on the eyes on TV view which I prefer. The issue seems to be worse (as others have said) when the 'camera' 'moves'. * Yes, I had in on FM 19. It got gradually worse throughout the year which is why I'm trying the demo first as I was worried about the same problems. No idea whether the worsening was to do with ME changes during updates, or me updating drivers, or something else. * There is little difference on different graphic settings; a just perceptible improvement. Matches are on anywhere between 40-55 fps on FM20. FM19 is more generally 60 fps or just below but the juddering/lag is about the same.
