  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. No problem. I was naturally frustrated when it happened but with it in the end being a relatively easy fix I really pleased to be up and running again. So once again thank you very much for your help.
  3. @Hugo Mendes Albino well I will start with a big thank you. Yes I could install on C: Drive (eventually). At the same time I deleted my Anti Virus program and was installing FM19 back onto my E: Drive as I have always done. Tried the small game that was now on C: Drive and it worked and then I happen to notice FM19 said Play? I tried and it worked no problem. So the moral of the story appears my Anti Virus program may of been the difference as to why it stopped working? Now to tell Steam to look for E: Drive for my Documents folder so I can access my FM saves etc. Thank you again.
  4. @Hugo Mendes Albino I would install on C: Drive but it won't let me set up a location? If I try C:\Program Files (x86)\ then it says "Failed to add new Steam Library folder" followed by "New Steam Library folder must be empty". What I don't get if I'm installing into a new folder surely it's empty? IGNORE ALL OF THE ABOVE - I did a Google search and found out how to do it.
  5. @Hugo Mendes Albino thank you for your reply. I mean no disrespect but as I stated in my OP I have already uninstalled and installed FM19 AND Steam multiple times and it hasn't worked! I posted here as I got the same response in a Support Ticket I submitted before coming here. It would then seem the only response thus far to a Content File Locked is uninstall and install Steam. Which I've done. So what now? I would like to play the game and also to inform you FM19 Touch and other Steam games all work fine. I don't want to play FM19 Touch in the meantime as I don't like it compared to the full game. Thanks for your time but I'm unsure how we proceed now?
  6. I'm currently unable to play FM19 at all due to a content file locked message appearing. Yesterday I left FM19 on it's main load up menu while I did a map update for my GPS and a graphics card update when after a short while a crash dump message appeared. Whatever happened caused my graphics card update to fail and GPS update to turn off. I sort those out and then turn on FM19 again and find it won't load due to a Content File Locked? Thus far I have Uninstalled and Installed FM19 multiple times. Deleted the Preferences and Cache folder found in C drive where the AppData etc is. I've also Uninstalled and Installed Steam multiple times. I just cannot proceed from this. I have uploaded my crash dump file, DxDiag file and have included a picture of the content file locked error. I know it's a know error as it's in the Technical Support More Questions In PC section but nothing works for myself? So what do I do now please?

  7. 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.
  8. 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 player is also in black instead of being white to the right of the player picture.
  9. Something I've noticed on the 2.1D is that there is no Social Feed manage button. I've not picked up FM17 for a while and was struggling to think how do I change my Social Feed settings? I change back to the original FM17 Dark skin and it's there in the bottom right a manage button. So @pikawa94 please could you add a Social Feed manage button to save changing skins? Thanks. EDIT - LMAO I found the manage button in the upper left of the central box by accident as I was clicking around the screen.
  10. @pikawa94 so how do I help to donate to your work to get v2.0? Thanks.
  11. Nigel Pearson is delusional when he says my Wolves were "lucky" to win 1-7 at Hillsborough.
  12. HA HA you beat me to it, was so busy about thinking what to put to help out.
  13. I'm no tactical guru so maybe I'm going to be way off the mark here but where are you conceding the goals from? Your problem may still be on your flanks? The 2 WB's are on attack duty so will be more interested in going forward than back (to track opposition players). The it maybe down to your actual structure of your 3 CB's. The 2 outer ones maybe on a Cover duty as then one of them would push out wider if there was a threat down the wing, leaving the other 2 to stay central. I understand why you may have a BPD but why not make him into a Stopper? This way he would be more prone to staying in a central location and not drawn out wide. I like the idea of a Anchor but maybe this is where your not getting help in going forward in central positions as he's too deep? One final thought have a download of the document found in this thread - http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/375632-Pairs-amp-Combinations-FM2015-UPDATED This will help you in setting up some of your players (like the 3 CB's)
  14. Could do no worse and visit here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/444680-The-Art-of-Counter-Attacking or here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/445500-The-Art-of-Possession-Football Have a proper read and post if you feel you need more advice
  15. They are all in relation to your best player. If you signed say a decent Premier League player then all your players would then probably show up a 1 1/2 or 1 star players due to how inferior they would be to that player you'd signed.
