  1. Hi all, Is there a way for me to safely move the location of my ...\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018 folder to another storage device without adversely affecting my game? I seem to be running low on space on my current drive and can't seem to clear anymore.
  2. Managed to get it sorted - a full reinstalling of my graphics software did the trick.
  3. Kind of correct. It will launch in the small window, but as soon as I even resize the window, it will freeze again. So either dragging the window to a certain size, or setting the resolution, that causes the game to freeze. I worry that it's something in my graphics drivers - a few of my other games seem to have started playing up but I have no idea how to sort it.
  4. Apologies for taking a while to get back to this. I tried the above and got past where I got to before, and I made it to the menu screen. However, I can't do anything if I resize the window - it just freezes up again.
  5. I have tried all of the above steps, and it is still stuck on the loading screen. DxDiag.txt
  6. When I try to run FM18, the game will open on the FM18 logo and the menu music will play, but the menu will not actually load. The cursor will change presumably when I'm hovering over a clickable link in the menu, but I am unable to actually use the game. I haev tried everything re: deleting older files, cache, preferences, veirfying cache. What more can I do?
  7. One of the most technically gifted players in the world has 0 England caps... Remarkably true to life!
  8. Yeah I've had a look. In the league, it's once from corners, but then I'm only about six games in. And then I can't go back to check last seasons stats, can I? [edit] there's goal 2 conceded from corners, 8 games in
  9. No worries, I just appreciate the help. This is the first FM that I've had problems in to be honest! See this is the funny thing, we are predicted to be doing as bad as we are doing. Last season it was 20th. However, last season we scored 72 goals, which put us top half in terms of goals scored. Alas our goals conceded shows us why we ended S1 in 19th. This season, we're predicted 22nd, and currently 21st. So in that sense, we're doing okay. But this team is better than 20th! I can't give you a reliable number for this season, or any actual stat from last season, but set pieces do also seem to be a problem - we tend to concede a lot from headers at the near post. I think that's just a case of tinkering with my instructions though.
  10. This season, I'm 6 games in and have conceded 11 goals. Plus six goals in two cup games. Then last season, it was 80 goals conceded in 46 games.
  11. I see. So is it a case of just dropping this defender for someone better? I have tried that, and it seems to happen fairly often no matter who I play.

  13. It made use of my starter's high Aggression/Bravery attributes, though I'm guessing it really doesn't make much difference anyway? I can't see any PPMs with the players involved (at least in the way of Marks Opponents Tight). Yes, 100% sure.
  14. It's the left sided defender which steps up though, which is set to defend. It's the right sided defender who is the stopper.
  15. From my first few games of the season, the opposition forward seems to get in between my centre backs, and then one always seems to get left out of position away from the "line of four" at the back. This leaves the forward goalside of the stray CB and gives him an easy chance to score. See these three pictures below from my game v Stevenage and you'll hopefully see what I mean. Here you see the back four in a line, with the forward sitting in between the centre backs. All of a sudden, one centre back has broken off the line and allowed the forward goalside The ball is played into the space and the forward converts the chance (offending centre back is circled) This seems to be a fairly regular problem for me, one centre back being caught out or breaking off from the line. Very strange that it actually seems to be the defender which isn't set on stopper... Anything else I can provide?
  16. Hey guys, I tried posting this in the Stupid Questions thread, but didn't get much of a response from anyone... I seem to have a big problem with conceding goals in this FM. Scoring isn't a problem, but I often still find myself losing matches. It is something which has affected a few of my saves, and no matter what I try with formations, it doesnt work. I tend to play with a 4-5-1, with a DM. However in this current save with Northampton, I have found myself playing a 4-4-2. In my 4-5-1, the roles and instructions were... GK - GK/D DR - Full Back/D DCR - Central Defender/S DCL - Ball Playing/C DL - Wing Back/A DMC - Ball Winning/D MCR - BBM MCL - AP/A AMR - Winger/A AML - Inside Forward/A ST - Target Man/A TIs - Short Passing, Work Ball into Box, Play out of defence, Float Crosses, Drop Deeper, Get Stuck In, Prevent Short GK Dist, Lower Tempo, Be More Disciplined. Control Structured With my 4-4-2, I basically wiped all the instructions and went... GK - GK/D DR - Full Back/D DCR - Central Defender/S DCL - Central Defender/D DL - Wing Back/A MR - Winger/A MCR - BWM/D MCL - DLP/S ML - Winger/S STCR - Poacher STCL - Target Man/A Counter, Structured. Help me out here, I swear I've lost years of my life swearing at the game because of conceding goals. I've tried to keep it simple as it's a LLM game (Northampton, League Two), but it still doesn't work
  17. It's hard to tell because I left the Brentford game a few days ago in a fit of rage and haven't touched it since It always seems like it is a problem with assists coming from the flanks, I tend to swap between which side goes attacking. In its standard form with the left side being attacking, I have tried to have the left sided centre mid on a defensive role, such a CM/D or BWM/D, and then in my head having the left sided centre back on cover would help too, surely? Also, forgot to mention I was playing Fluid and Balanced with styles etc.
  18. Team report suggests that the Most Common Opponent Assist Area is the Left Wing
  19. Ah sorry about that, I'll edit the original post to include these. When I left my Brentford game... GK - Sweeper Keeper/S (changed to GK/D in desparation) DR - Full Back/D DCR - Central Defender/D or S DCL - Ball Playing/C DL - Wing Back/A DMC - Ball Winning/D MCR - BBM MCL - AP/A AMR - Raumdeuter AML - Winger/Inside Forward depending on who played, usually the former ST - Target Man/A TIs - Short Passing, Work Ball into Box, Play out of defence, Float Crosses, Drop Deeper, Get Stuck In, Prevent Short GK Dist, Lower Tempo, Be More Disciplined. And in my Leipzig game... GK - GK/D DR - Inverted Wing Back DC both Central Defender/D DL - CWB/A MCR - CM/A MC - BWM/D MCL - DLP/S STCR - AF STC - TM STCL - Poacher TIs - Direct Passing, Float Crosses, Push Higher Up, Stick to Positions, Close Down More, Get Stuck In, Lower Temp, Be More Disciplined
  20. Okay figured I'd finally post in here, seeing as it's a problem which has blighted a couple of saves recently... My teams don't seem to have a problem scoring goals, however we seem to concede A LOT (in the region of 2 per game, on average). See these screenshots from an old Brentford save, and my current RB Leipzig game... Brentford S1 - Brentford S2 (2nd despite conceding over 80 goals!?) - Brentford S3 - RB Leipzig S1 It doesn't matter what I do with defenders and instructions, they always tend to either over-commit and find themselves out of position, or they don't pick up their man, usually when an exchange is occuring (e.g. a left back moving over to the wing to close down a wide player, leaving his man in the centre). I've tried pushing up, dropping deeper, marking tighter, holding position, all of that! It's all well and good winning games, but when you're conceding 2 goals in the process it can get REALLY annoying. Where do I start? I tend to play some kind of 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1, although in my Leipzig game I am currently running a Flat 4-3-3 due to the players they have. [edit] The roles were, When I left my Brentford game... GK - Sweeper Keeper/S (changed to GK/D in desparation) DR - Full Back/D DCR - Central Defender/D or S DCL - Ball Playing/C DL - Wing Back/A DMC - Ball Winning/D MCR - BBM MCL - AP/A AMR - Raumdeuter AML - Winger/Inside Forward depending on who played, usually the former ST - Target Man/A TIs - Short Passing, Work Ball into Box, Play out of defence, Float Crosses, Drop Deeper, Get Stuck In, Prevent Short GK Dist, Lower Tempo, Be More Disciplined. And in my Leipzig game... GK - GK/D DR - Inverted Wing Back DC both Central Defender/D DL - CWB/A MCR - CM/A MC - BWM/D MCL - DLP/S STCR - AF STC - TM STCL - Poacher TIs - Direct Passing, Push Higher Up, Stick to Positions, Close Down More, Get Stuck In, Lower Temp, Be More Disciplined
  21. I'm having problems with the Vietnam league. There seems to be a second file being created every time I run the game, called "Vietnam leagues update by claassen_1C9C9FB1-A27E-4DB5-AA8F-990E64418F1E", and it is creating mismatches which mean I can't play with the Vietnam league. Any idea what that could be?
  22. Cheers for the suggestions, guys. I'll check them out!
  23. Nation: ENG Division: Championship / League One / League Two (maybe!) European Competition: N/A Media Prediction: anything Board Expectation(s): anything Transfer Budget: Enough to have a gander in the market Wage Budget: See above Finances: Reasonable enough Other: I just want a good long term FM game now that I'm free from Uni, but one that isn't too easy! Good facilities are not a must!
