  1. Does anyone know how I can edit the default formations in the "tactics" folder for FM14? I want to tweak the default 3-4-3 fomation the AI uses to move two of the strikers wider.
  2. Sorry, let me rephrase the question, as I don't think it was completely clear. I'm not trying to simply change the formations of the AI managers (I can do that in the editor). I want to add a completely new formation (a variation of a 541) to the game so the AI managers can use it as a starting formation. In older versions of the game you could do this by overwriting one of the default formations in the tactics folder for the game, but you can't do that in the newer games. So my question is, is there another way to achieve that?
  3. Is there a way to edit the default formations the AI uses, or even add to them? I don't mean the tactics themselves, just the starting positions so I can add new formations to the game.
  4. Is there a command similar to the "FAKE_NATIONAL_TEAM" command for club sides? Something like "FAKE_CLUB_TEAM" ?
  5. HA, no it's for an update i'm working on.
  6. Is it possible to foce a team to only have grey players, through a EDT file or something?
  7. If I edit the tactics in the AI tactics folder on the old FM versions (for example give each position a set mentality) does the AI override it?
  8. Am I right in assuming the manager profiles in the new versions of the game (with the new match engine) has been done specifically to work together, so to create a manager in an older version of the game (2008) I would have to give them different numbers for “attacking” “depth” etc?
  9. What factors decide how well an AI manager does? I assume it’s not just quality of his squad? I ask because I’ve noticed a lot of the up and coming, tactically good managers that are doing well in real life (Nagelsmann, Rose, Rodgers etc) do really badly in my saves. I ran a few test season to see how often this happens and it’s almost every time. Does this happen for anyone else?
  10. Long shot but has anyone got a semi-recent (within the last 3 to 4 years) database they have kept for FM2009 they can share? This would be a database you have kept updated yourself with transfers etc or found somewhere.
  11. Thanks Neil, that makes total sense when you put it like that.
  12. This question is not for the newer versions of the game now we have all these Tendencies that help guide it. I still play one of my old FM08 custom databases and I noticed that certain clubs always sign the same player at the start of the game, regardless of who the AI manager is. So it got me wondering what used to impact this? Does the chairman have an impact? Director of football? Or something else?
  13. Is it possible to add Future Income to teams using an inline command? (EDT or DDT)? Essentially I want to be able to give a team future income for multiple years rather than just for a single year (which you can do in the editor). This is for FM08 BTW
  14. Thanks @FrazT Do you happen to know what, if anything, did influence who clubs choose as their manager in the older versions? Or was it totally just down to nationality?
