  1. FM18 Youth Academy Challenge

    Austrian reset date is 14th June. Might give this a go as First Vienna FC 1894, Austria's oldest club.
  2. I have exactly the same problem, the game freezes when I click "Start playing" in this mode.
  3. I started a new save with a small database and just the Italian leagues loaded (approx 12,000 players), and started unemployed so I can holiday a few years into the future. It goes along at a decent pace until I hit December 2018, then it becomes a crawl. Now the game seems to freeze every time I click Continue and pass from one day to the next, for minutes at a time. Everything just stops; the calendar stops moving, the spinning thing stops spinning and FM is described as "Not Responding" in Task Manager. Then once it starts responding again, it works fine. I timed it and it took 1m50s to go from December 31st 2018 to January 1st 2019, and during almost all of that time the game was frozen/unresponsive. My computer works as normal during this, I can do things alongside FM like listening to music or browsing the internet and they're not slowed or laggy whatsoever. I have FM in windowed mode (maximised, 1920x1080 resolution screen) and I'm not using any custom graphics.
  4. Sorry, none of my crash dump files match any of my .pkm files. My most recent .pkm is from a friendly I played last night at 7:45pm and since then I've left friendlies up to my assistant. My crash dump closest to that .pkm was last night at 12:30am (a couple of in-game weeks after that match). I just loaded my save again to look at my Club's schedule and within about 20 seconds I got another crash dump. This is the first one I've had that didn't occur during processing. I've uploaded the file. Here's my DxDiag if you want it too: https://pastebin.com/tGXiiuyv Thanks Neil. ChewyFun_FM 2018 v18.0.2.1032514 (2017.10.31 12.47.56).dmp
  5. I was crashing on July 28th 2018, but managed to get past it after verifying my game files. Now I'm crashing on August 4th. It seems to happen on Saturdays when the game is processing a lot of friendlies. I've tried deleting cache and preferences, and verifying game files again. I'm not using any custom files.

  6. Fans are complaining before every match that we're using a 5-3-1-1WB tactic too much, even though we haven't used it in the last 5 or 6 matches (I actually don't have it as a prepared tactic anymore either). We were actually getting decent results with the tactic, just the football was somewhat boring. The last few matches I've used a wholly different tactic but they still complain about the 5-3-1-1WB before each match. Also, on the Board -> Confidence -> Tactics screen the feedback says that our fans are baffled with our tactics and it's affecting performances but this isn't accurate. We're unbeaten in the last ten matches and players are in good spirits. Either way, on the Social Feed it's saying that I'm stubbornly sticking to one tactic, but on the Confidence screen it's telling me we're using too many different tactics.
  7. Euro 2016 FINAL - Portugal vs France

    Quite happy with this. WP Portugal, especially Pepe and Rui Patricio
  8. Euro 2016 FINAL - Portugal vs France

    Who's this doing commentary on BBC? I'm terrible at recognising voices.
  9. Round of 16 - Switzerland vs Poland - NOW!

    BBC? did the same to me. Lawro is extra moody today, just audibly tutted ffs
  10. Pepe vs Austria - 20:00GMT

    The only thing in world football funnier than Ronaldo's repeated failings on the big stage is the Stevie G slip against Chelsea.
  11. Almost every team so far have celebrated their winning goals like that. What's the problem?
  12. What exactly is Sturridge doing?
  13. Dier is superb when he sticks to the simple short pass.
