  1. I looked for the image here in the forum and my (previous) laptop, but couldn't find it, sorry. Yes, it was a large wedding tent located beside the goalkeeper on the touchline....
  2. It was a graphic glitch: a large tent assembled beside the goal by the field line. I even posted the image on the bugs forum.

    I’ve lost players surnames

    Hi. Did you change their names first place? In any case, right-click on the player, you'll see a "Set Nickname" or "Remove Nickname". The latter will reset to the player's original name. Hope this helps.
  4. I just became head coach of the U.S. national team, and was advised to scout players who are "undeclared" in terms of national affiliation. I tried but wasn't able to find out how to do this. How do I set up a scout assignment for such "undeclareds"? Thanks.

    Jersey Colors are too similar

    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I've been coming across many matches where both teams have quite similarly colored jerseys. (I'm playing Aston Villa in the English Premier, and quite often both teams are playing with quite dark jerseys). Can you please check the color scheme/algorithm, so that teams playing with more differentiated jerseys?... Thanks.

    Training question

    I agree with most comments above: the new training system is more realistic but also a bit more overwhelming. Though I picked a lower division, poor club, I wonder if I'm under-performing in FM19 because I'm missing out on important aspects of the training calendar. I've been trying to: 1- diversify with a variety of weekly programs (for example, a two-month sequence: defense, balanced, attack technical, balance, counterattack, defense, etc.) 2- tweak the weekly programs, by adding "team bonding" and "match reviews" (BTW, I wish these were automatic...) 3- pepper additional set-piece and technical daily sessions (while keeping an eye to avoid excessive training that results in tiredness and injuries). *** I'm inclined to start focusing more on the Balanced weekly program, and also diversifying them by selecting other basic weekly programs (attack, defense, tactics), and keep adding "team bonding", "match review", and set piece sessions. I'm inclined to NOT choose hyper-specialized programs too much. Please any feedback on this vision or any additional tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    These personal factors will also influence how the Board reacts to your requests: - Your determination score - Your biographic background as a player - You coaching license - How long you've been coaching the club - How well is your team performance across multiple tournaments

    Frustrating striker problem.

    My strikers suck in FM19 thus far (slow, hold the ball, horrible finishes, etc.). When I set tactics to "shoot more often", it's the midfielders who score. Then, in set pieces, it's the defenders who do the job. Some tweaks in the coding are needed.

    The light post disappeared. Perhaps your team took care of it? Thanks.

    Hi. Any updates please? @Hugo Mendes Albino
  11. A few minor issues as I play Reggina on Italy's 3rd division (C/C) in FM19: - lightpost blocking my Director camera view. (I opened a ticket but still waiting for update/fix) - Most matches in fixtures schedule take place in neutral stadiums (mostly with no names) - Playing with away jersey at home I've uploaded a game file on your FTP site. File is titled "Oct 19 test.fm" Thanks for your prompt reply.

    Hello @Hugo Mendes Albino. Any updates? Thank you.
  13. I'd like to reduce my youth system, to save resources. I wonder what happens if I move all U18 into U20 and fire all U18 staff and deadwood players. Has anyone tried this, or can share some thoughts on why this is a good or bad idea? Thanks.

    Hello. Any updates on my request? Thanks.
  15. When I sign a new player, I'm often posed with a new sign interview option. I usually take it and am intrigued by this: - "I don't care if he performs as long as someone else does." - What is the point of saying that?! How rude... - if I decline the interview... What do I miss? - Any tips to gain most out of this feature.
