  1. Hi Lucas, There are 3 of us playing the network game and 2 of us had finished and were waiting for the 3rd person. I am the host and it was my result that changed. I cannot remember if i went back into my match or not, i was looking at various screens and i use the back option (or press backspace on the keyboard) a lot so may have gone back into the match via that route.
  2. Here is the PKM of the game, it was my match. I finished the game and then whilst waiting for the 3rd player to finish their game i was looking at other screens, cannot remember which ones as i was looking aroudn my squad, dynamics, scouting and then when the third game finished when the results were shown mine changed to 0-1 from 3-2. Man utd vs swansea score change.pkm

    Liverpool and chelsea in the same CL group

    No sorry i don't. I only noticed 3 games into the group games as i looked at Chelseas fixtures and saw they had played Liverpool in the CL group stage. I can upload the save game anyway but i am a lot further along?
  5. I am in a network game with 2 other people, when one of them was playing a game i went to transfers-transfer center and ticked "Hide inactive deals", i then clicked lastest scores and then clicked back on transfers and the transfer activity was still filtered but the hide inactive deals was not ticked

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Also the plural of Jedi is Jedi so the last Jedi could mean there is more than 1 of them.
  7. Just a quick question regarding scouting a region, i am sure we were able to do this in previous FM versions but cannot see a way at the moment (first time i have tried this in FM17) Trying to scount a region and i have to specify a minimum CA of 1/2 gold star - i am not interested in CA at all and am focusing on PA. Is there a way to ignore CA and just scout on PA? Thanks

    Scouting question

    Do not some youngsters have no gold stars CA but have silvers stars instead?

    Player interaction is a joke....

    Thanks for the offer but i don't want any changes made to the save via an editor.

    Player interaction is a joke....

    Nope and don't want to use it either, just going to have to get a replacement for Jones and hope that Januzaj realises that Arsenal are no where in time for me to renew his contract.

    Player interaction is a joke....

    I am about to lose Phil Jones for free due to weird player interactions (raised in bugs forum but they want a save before he first got annoyed!!!) First season with Man Utd, get to January and both Jones and Januzaj both got annoyed because they wanted to join Arsenal to play in the CL, fair enough i thought but at this stage i was top of the league and Arsenal were about 8th and looked like no chance of getting in next year. I checked the transfer tab for both players and it didn't say Arsenal were interested at all so not sure where it came from. Fast forward 12 months so Jan of second season, they are both still annoyed. Arsenal finished 6th and didn't qualify for the CL and are currently mid table and have no chance of getting into the CL this season either. I finished 1st and am in the CL this year and finished top of my group, i am also 12 points clear of 2nd in the league and looking like i will have to have a major meltdown to not win the league this year. Jones has 6 months to run on his contract and i have been trying for 12 months to get him to renew it but he won't discuss it because he has wanted to join Arsenal to play in the CL, recently that has changed to just join Arsenal, they are currently 12th in the league!! Januzaj still wants to leave to play for Arsenal in the CL!!. I already know that i am going to lose Jones at the end of his contract but at this rate i am going to lose Januzaj as well all because he hasn't been able to recognise that Arsenal are not in the CL and are not going to be in the CL for at least another season.
  13. The host has created one in the network game bugs forum as it hasn't happened in single player so we thought it was a network game issue
  14. He has every right to be annoyed, i have played the beta for 2 weeks with no issue at all and then today 3 of us started a network game and have had 7 (yes 7) crash dumps in 6 hours and all we are doing is playing the game. We are getting fed up massively with it and have not been able to get through pre season yet
  15. I work in software development so am more aware of most how hard it is to make bug free software. Maybe not everyone would see the same issue but the number of people that reported the same problem on release day last year with regards to transfers/scouts etc and then SI reporting straight away that they could reproduce it without having to ask for machine specs etc, means that it was pretty easy to reproduce and should have been caught in testing and they were very apologetic about it. The main issue that i have playing a network game is that it always seems to be an afterthought with the game and there was a big buildup last year about how network games would be better and special attention had been paid to them and then on release game we were unable to play because only the host could buy players. I know the term "unplayable" is banded about far too easily but for us it was "unplayable" as we couldn't buy players at all and therefore could not play very far into the game. They could have gotten around the issue by releasing the beta with network games playable so that all the issues could have been found pre release, hopefully something that will be done this year.
  16. He's not talking about there being no bugs in the software, we all no that is impossible. However, on release day last year (not beta release but actual release day) we played and only the host was able to buy players. Now i know some bugs fall through unfortunately but being able to buy players on a network game is a pretty big issue and something that should not have. Also 2 other major issues on release day (once again not beta release but actual release as you couldn't play a network game on beta release), were not being able to get into the finances screen and not being able to set up scout assignments. We all except that there are going to be bugs but the 3 things i have mentioned are all major parts of playing the game and how they got through testing, apparently they had a clan doing the testing, is hard to fathom did they just play games without actually doing things that all players do. Just want to check the level of testing this year on the network game as last year it was lacking in a lot of areas.
  17. What is the point of setting up tactics and set piece takers if they are overwritten because of something that you cannot set I drew 1-1 away to valencia in the CL and in the home leg i was 3-1 up and had a penalty, which was taken by smalling a CB because he had scored twice. He missed obviously and then Valencia went straight up the other end and scored, they then scored again with 2 minutes left to go through on away goals. What is the point in me spending the time setting up all my tactics and set piece takers if they get overwritten because of something that i cannot influence at all. This ridiculous pointless inclusion needs to be removed or at least settable by the manager as i am now out. 4-1 wins me the game but because they scored direct from my penalty, because my CB missed the penalty and then was miles out of position, i am now out through something that i cannot do anything about. Not happy at all with this, how often would a CB step up to take a penalty when you are only 3-1 up and down to 10 men. Nope this is spotted in time and fixed for FM14 and this has happened to me twice now.
  18. One point to make is that in football does a player that has 2 goals always take the penalty, i seem to remember at least 2 instances last season when a player that could complete their hat trick did not take the penalty, in FM it always happens so therefore FM is wrong. I also remember a manager making sure that the normal penalty taker took the penalty rather than a player on a hattrick, Swansea in the carling cup final i think. Maybe it should come done to how selfish the player is or maybe there is something the manager could do from the sideline to indicate whether the normal penalty taker should take it or not. I would not miss this if it wasn't included as in football a player on a hatttick does not always take the penalty in FM they do.
  19. Didn't think this would cause such a discussion but thought i would give a few more details about the game. I had a man sent off after 4 minutes so had to adjust my tactics so that rather than playing very attacking i changed to play counter and try to catch them on the break. It worked really well and i scored after 13, 24 and 25 minutes to go 3-0 ahead. Valencia pulled one back after 55 minutes to make it 3-1 on the night and then 4-2 on aggregate, i then had a penalty on 82 minutes, which was missed and Valencia went straight up the other end and got a penalty of their own when one of my wingers had managed to track their striker and dived in 2 footed. They then went all out attack and before any of my tactical changes could take effect they scored again (1 1/2 minutes later) to draw 3-3. If my penalty was scored or my striker took it and missed Smalling would have been back in position and my winger would not have had to make to challenge and given them a penalty. I have seen plenty of occurrences in real life when the manager had indicated from the sidelines that the normal penalty taker should take the penalty not someone else that has scored twice. As a manager it is up to me to set things up and the board blames me for failing to meet their expectations not some CB that put himself above the team, there should be a way to indicate to the players that you want your normal penalty taker to take the penalty not the player that has scored 2
  20. Playing a network game with 2 mates at the same physical location so all connecting through the same wireless router and FM crashes (again) on my machine. The only way i can see the host machine again in the join online game screen is to restart FM on the host machine. This is utterly ridiculous, why is the game so poor that i cannot just reconnect again, what is going on in the game that means the host does not show up until FM is restarted on the host machine, we are getting fed up having to restart FM, steam of even computers because we cannot see the host machine - sort it out. When this version of FM was released a major selling point from you was that the network game was vastly improved, it is still appalling and i hope the next version is vastly improved, to be fair it can't be any worse!!
  21. Although i have not experienced the issue the OP is talking about as we only play our online game when all 3 of us are available, he is correct in that the online game has been neglected. When FM13 was released the online game was unplayable, only the machine acting as the server was able to buy players/staff, to view finances, able to set up scouting assignments. The first 2 sessions me and the other 2 people playing our online game spent pretty much the entire time raising bugs in the online bug forum. Eventually most of the issues have been fixed but there is still some horrible lag when playing online, this is not a broadband issue as we all live close enough to meet up and play so are all sharing the same router. If during a game someone is searching players the game will freeze as the search list is updated with new filters, going into finances on a non server machine is horribly slow to open but at least it opens now, there are many other issues and it is very disappointing as when the game was released the fact that it was now using the steam servers for online play was a big selling point. It is a lot better than it was on release day but still a long way from playing a single player game. Maybe an idea this year would be to release a beta with the network game enabled so that we can spend time debugging the game before it is released.
  22. Used the new patch last night and am very happy with the result. I play a 4-3-2-1 with an AML as an IF and a AMC with an out and out winger on the right, really good to see my IF cutting inside and my WBL bombing up past him and putting crosses in and my winger on the right hugging the touch line and putting crosses in as well. My player behind the striker is an AMC or a T depending on who is playing and they get involved defensively and drop into midfield to collect the ball as well. Overall really happy with the update and loving the way my team is playing football at the moment. Scored a goal last night were i was pushing high up the pitch and pressurizing the opposition, i won the ball on the half way line with their midfield now out of position and 4 1 touch passes later between my IF, T and Poacher resulted in my T scoring. Really good to see your team pressing the ball rather than an individual
  23. I guess you are talking about the scouting bug? In a network game only the host can create scouting assignments, all other players have that option unavailable
  24. Neil, i saw the fix for the network transfer bug but nothing about the network scouting issue, do you know if that has been fixed in this release?
