  1. Can anyone point me in the direction of what panel I'd have to edit to move the number left and players face to the right on the player profile screen as I'd like to be able to see more of the number please?
  2. Sorry to have to come back with a problem which I'm hoping is just me? I'm not at my computer right now so cannot show in a picture but all the staff their attributes are all in black which makes them very hard to read? I have changed to different skins (original plus others) and they are fine so not sure why the text would show up in black? Thanks again for a really clean clutter free skin that's easy on the eyes.
  3. Loving the skin so far and appreciate you making it. May I ask the Training/Coaches screen all the text at the top of the screen that tells you how man coaches you have and the boards concerns is all in black instead of white? It's hard to read in any of the skins, apart from all is good. Thanks. EDIT - I forgot to mention in the Home screen in the top left is the next fixture to text on the right of the oppositions manager is in white instead of black and is unreadable with a yellow background (Dortmund) EDIT 2 - The same for the Transfer/Transfer Status of a playe
  4. Nigel Pearson is delusional when he says my Wolves were "lucky" to win 1-7 at Hillsborough.
  5. Brilliant work OLT. I've enjoyed using all of your hair packs and this will be no different. You are one of the few people who make a real difference to how we all play and enjoy FM, so once again thank you for your hard work in making the hair pack.
  6. knap what tactic did you use in the screenshot?
  7. Thanks knap for the link. I'll give it a go but shame it's not as good without the arrows. I'd searched for ages for a 2 AMC tactic and started my own xtree tactic from the pre set ones but got bogged down on the individual tactic and hadn't tried it out yet. So appreciate your work in making this one.
  8. Hey Knap loving your tactics...used the 4-2-3-1 spursattack one with Spurs and won the title 2 years in a row. Now I've gone to United I would like to try a 4-3-2-1 christmas tree type formation with 2 wide men and a single central midfielder, plus 2 central attacking midfielders. You have it listed on your first post but no tactic....any chance you can make one for please?
  9. Well just finished my season with Rochdale and I have to say the base 4222 is an amazing tactic Knap especially as my players aren't that good. In the end my record with the tactic was - P 17 - W 12 - D 1 - L 4 - GS 42 - GC 22 The most impressive thing was that it took my side who were 12th in League One in just 14 league matches to finish 3rd and a point off promotion. In the Play-Offs we got to the Final against Huddersfield where we lost 3-1. Annoyed I never got a shock promotion but in reality like I said my players aren't quite good enough. Thanks Knap the 4222 is really a brilliant
  10. With my Rochdale game both the base 442's were just awful for my team so I'm trying out the base 4222. Well can I be happier.......No! Yes it's been only 5 games in with it but we've now moved up to 5th in League One from 12th in those games and the football we're playing is so impressive. The results so far are - H v Oldham won 4-0 H v Southampton won 1-0 A v Bristol Rovers drew 2-2 A v Charlton won 6-0 H v Brighton won 3-1 The way things are going with 9 games to go we could very well pull off a suprise promotion or play off spot? Not bad for a side predicted to finish 23rd. I ca
  11. Is that 4222 with 2 CM - 1 AML - 1 AMR - 2 SC? That is what my Rochdale side are using at the moment as doing okayish. The 2 base tactics you sent me were flat 442's which didn't suit my 2 wide men I have so would like to try out the 4222 if it is like what I stated above as my team struggled badly with your 2 base tactics.
  12. This is the current FM10 tactic I'm using in FM11. In the demo I used Tottenham and it was amazing no problems with it as we were rolling over most teans......but Tottenham do have good players. Now to Rochdale in the full game. It's been up and down with them, whether that is because of a bad run of form or simply the players aren't good enough I don't know? We started off well scoring goals and had won 4 out of 4 including scoring 9 in our 2 away games and then it fell apart. We played away to MK Dons, we were top and they were 9th and they thumped us 7-4 in an amazing match. I then pr
  13. I'd like to try it with my Rochdale side.....currently using one of your other 442 from fm10.
  14. Thanks KK2003 Yeah just unsure as whether to go for it as £6.30 is a good price considering they have CoP up for £14.99 with a loyalty promo or £19.99 so it is a really good saving. As for waiting I suppose a Christmas or New Year sale would be the next big one........undecided especially as I have Worms Reloaded next week.
  15. I find it quite annoying this weekends sale. I only picked up SoC literally last night for £9.99 and now CoP (which is in my wishlist) and SoC are there for both £6.30. It's just one of those typical impulse buys which bites you on the bum but a bit quicker than normal. Still CoP (even if I already have SoC) for £6.30 is great value but I'm wondering if it will come down to that price or cheaper in any further sales?
