  1. Is it just my imagination or was there a subforum for android bugs before? Anyway, I just lost my save game. Whole phone froze up when I tried to exit the game, had to restart, then save game file had disappeared. This was the second time the game froze while exiting, but first time didn't wipe the game. Not sure if it's my phone's fault or the app's fault. It's samsung galaxy S2.
  2. Hello Apple and Android owners! Firstly, loving that FMH is now on Android, and enjoying the gameplay so far! Secondly: I have a dream! This dream would see an old divide between Apple and Android healed one helpful comment at a time. I envisage iOS users, previously perceived as elitist and womanly, lending a helping hand to the new handheld barbarians of the android generation. In plain English - Based on your experiences, what are the differences between the handheld and full version, ranging from significant and having impact to minute and quirky. Some examples of what I've found after reading this forum and playing for awhile: Maximum of 30 seasons Regens take on attribute templates from retired players Highlights are sparse and short. Useful info needs to be extracted from stats. No hiring of backroom staff - set automatically in line with clubs reputation/facilities. Some attributes have been combined to save screen space Only one country is playable per game That's the main things that stuck out to me. Please add your own, and feel free to correct anything I've said. Cheers!
  3. Made my day to see you started this again Kip! Will be interesting to see if the Bandits' inevitable success keeps their crap manager in the job, or if their smart chairman will upgrade ASAP. Also keen to see how the starlets nationality affects where they move to.

    Noticed the post complaining about the lack of activity on the previous page. Just thought I'd make some excuses, which would also count as activity! I mostly blame my team/captain. A self absorbed man such as myself finds it very hard to get involved in this thread as a Lesbian substitute! Also I'm not a big poster in general, more of a lurker. However, the game and its presentation look great so far. KUTGW!

    The Joy of Stats

    Main thing that I'd like is a way to track the progress of my player's stats over his time at the club. I currently do this by taking screenshots, but it's a bit tedious and sometimes you forget a year. Something similar for player from other teams you want to track would be good to. If you could save something like a screenshot in-game in the notes section that would be useful.
  6. Can't remember if I've previously posted, but this is by far my favorite thread on these forums and I've had it bookmarked for ages so I'm delighted to see kip's back! With regards to the nationalities I'd love to divide the starlets up into groups and put them each into small nations to see how much they impact them. Maybe groups of 2-3 divided between 10 countries? In order to get around the EU thing, give them English as a second nationality, but have them already declared for the small nation. Or even give them 1 cap each. Summary: Option (j) and welcome back!

    So I guess the RB with 9 stamina isn't going to have a great chance of starting either. Super sub it is then!
  9. I'm 23, just finished my final year of uni, and haven't played since Christmas due to projects and the likes. Now planning to start work in the next few months, and don't think I'll be playing then either. However it's not due to any sort of "better life" crap, as soon as I save up enough to replace the laptop that died at christmas FM2012 will be full steam ahead!!

    If I have prematurely broken the seal or whored myself in the wrong place I apologise. Any hints from an old slag like yourself would be greatly appreciated.

    As someone who has read 3 or 4 threads and posted twice on this forum I reckon it would be idiotic to choose anyone else with your first pick. The list of teams built on consistent pacey wing backs just rolls off the tongue: -Brazil 2002 - Cafu. -All the teams that Glen Johnson's played for - Glen Johnson. -Man United Milk Cup winners 1990 - Gary Neville. Elmo Squallaci, all you've ever wanted in a man, but even balder. Need I say any more?

  14. Have been following the thread for awhile, well written and a great story! Well done. However I also have some self-interest in this post. I'm curious to see your results but I think you've linked the finance screen instead. Also, KUTGW!
