    Manager Attributes

    If you edited the attributes but left the CA unedited then the game will up the attributes to conform to the CA within a few weeks. If you had lowered the CA too then the attributes would've remained the same. As far as I know rep has no effect on player performances.
  2. As you probably already guessed from the title my goalkeeper scored recently from a clearance. The ball carried all the way to the other end of the pitch and bounced over his opposite number's head. I've never seen this happen in all of my years playing FM and was wondering how common it is? Aside from set-pieces and penalties does anyone else here have any examples of their gk scoring?

    Your Personal Loyalty as Manager

    I always seem to regret jumping ship on FM; I've had great saves with smaller sides where I've made them top contenders in Europe and then left for a more established club and the save has died after 2-3 more seasons. Zwolle, Boavista and Rayo were going great guns but then after going to Spurs, Schalke and Bayern respectively I lost all interest. So I now try and stay where I'm at as for me the grass is never greener.

    How many key players do you have?

    I try and go for one per formation line. So I normally have 4/5 although in my FM14 save at Zaragoza I had something ridiculous like 14 because I had boatloads of wage budget and they were all worth the money.

    Defence

    I once won promotion after the opposition's goalkeeper bobbled a backpass straight to my striker. Of course the opposition make mistakes.

    Player Name Generator HELP

    The game generates regen names from the names already in the game. So your best bet is to create a bunch of people with the names that you want in the database, then make it so that they retire after a couple of weeks of the game. Then whenever new names are generated it should take into account the new first names and surnames that you've added.
  8. Worst defeat to swallow was probably on FM14 managing Boavista -- was 4-0 up against Barcelona after the first leg of the ECL semi and lost the second leg 7-2 to go out on aggregate. What made it harder was knowing that I wouldn't be able to get back to that stage for a few years as 7 of my starters were moving on as I couldn't afford to keep them in the face of big club interest. I resigned at the end of the season as I couldn't face rebuilding. On the same save but later on I was managing Schalke and contrived to finish runner-up to Bayern in the league, cup and champions league 2 years in a row -- so any defeat to Bayern in that span was pretty galling as you can imagine.

    Martinique: Is it possible?

    I'm afraid it's hard-coded for them to be a non-FIFA nation.

    That's still a massive upgrade over the last game that I seriously tried to edit (FM11) aha

    What Manager Hidden Attributes Mean

    While I'm not 100% sure and would happily defer to someone else's better judgement on this issue, I'm pretty sure from looking through saves of mine that it relates to a tendency to buy players. Some really talented recruiters in my long-term save only have 7s in that stat, while someone like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has 20.

    No Champions League spot

    You used to be able to add an entirely new nation into the game by editing the db record lists xml file. It was buggy as anything but I remember someone a few years back adding a new continent and a new nation to the game (it was a db for the Vatican league) so that the new country would be completely isolated. Sadly that thread is long gone and I haven't gone that deep into the editor for a few years so wouldn't be able to say if it was still possible. But it definitely used to be quite simple (if pointless in most cases as you could just overwrite a dead nation) to add a completely new nation to the game. I'll stop hijacking the thread now aha

    Of course you can, otherwise I wouldn't have asked the question
