  1. Blimey. OK, I'm wondering if something weird has happened just on my version, because this doesn't feel like the game I've been playing before now. What match engine version should I be on?
  2. Something very odd has happened to my game. Steam downloaded an update before I launched, and number of goals scored have gone through the roof: 44 in the last seven games, including 2 games with 9 games, one with 8, and one with 7. But I'm not seeing anything about a new patch in the forums.
  3. FANTASY DRAFT MODE - Fixed issue where fantasy draft budget left over is calculated incorrectly Very pleased about this one: thanks, SI!
  4. Eh? I routinely play fantasy draft in hotseat mode. One steam account; set up your draft rules; add a manager for each team competing and you are away.
  5. Thanks, michael - that's really helpful. The last sentence in particular is very interesting, and I will do some investigations.
  6. I've done a search, and seen some suggestions that the game will avoid having red shirts vs orange, or yellow vs orange. But does it care about shorts and sock colours at all? And for shirts, does it avoid clashes with foreground and background colours in ALL styles, or just ones where the foreground colour gets used a lot (such as stripes)? Is outline ignored when assessing clashes? And colour of shirt number? I'd be grateful for any rules which people have managed to work out...
  7. A few things I'd love to see for Fantasy Draft Mode:- 1) The ability to have leagues with more than 6 managers 2) Once you've set up manager profiles, the game already remembers the name of the manager's team, stadium, and location from save to save. However, it doesn't remember team kits from save to save (or, once a game is underway, let you check which kit settings you entered so you can exactly recreate those kits in the future) 3) I'd like the option for teams to play home and away in the league. At present, all matches are at a neutral venue. 4) When drafting players, it'd be great if there was a Cancel button you could use if you realised you'd drafted the wrong player and hadn't yet hit the Change Manager button. 5) It'd be great if team value was calculated accurately.
  8. Say that I've already got a very lengthy (unrelated) video uploading to YouTube in the background. If I select Upload Goal in FM16, will I be trapped on the processing page until both my initial video has finished processing AND the goal has uploaded, or will it let me move on with the game once the goal has been encoded and has been queued?
  9. Heatmaps are in the Analysis (Team) section when you are on the match report screen.
  10. We're in a parallel universe where Premiership clubs have frittered away their TV money, and all gone bust one summer. Some players such as Wayne Rooney, Diego Costa, Harry Kane and Santi Cazorla instantly go abroad, but most hang around to see what will emerge from the chaos. A new slimmer Premier League comes into existence, featuring 16 brand new clubs. Managers use the Fantasy Draft Mode to form their squads from the Premiership players who are still around. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Manuel Neuer, Eder Alvarez Balanta, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric are intrigued by the project, and sign for Imaginary EPL clubs. The managers are a mix of FM veterans and those who are completely new to the game with no exposure to prevailing wisdom (such as gotta-have-2-holding-midfielders-in-your-4231-Denmark). How much will that matter? We're going to find out. They tell me who they want to pick from their 24 man squads, give me their formation, and describe how they want their team to play, and I run it through the FM16 match engine. Each week, key highlights of 2 matches will be shown on 'Game Of The 24 Hour Period', plus all of the goals from the remaining games. It's a 30 game season, and only one manager can prevail...

  11. That's very clear, yeah: I was hazy about the case where the activation code was linked to a physical disc rather than relating to a pure download. Thanks!
