  1. I deleted preferences and caches, but my last save disappeared. How can I recoup the game file please? (Is it inside cache or preferences folders currently in the Recycle Bin?) Once I find and play it, I'll let you know if graphic performance improved. Thanks. PS: All Perfect Now! The game file was in the games folder (it just wasn't displayed in the home page). I played the game will graph settings to Very High, and it runs perfect. Thanks!
  2. Since I patched FM19 with the Winter update (19.3), I noticed that match play has some light jaggedness. My graph quality is set in Very High because I have a brand new Alienware 17, with i7 8750H and GeForce 1070 (!) Since the jaggedness started, I set Crowd quality to Very Low, and now close my browser which used to run in the background - but problem remains. Any suggestions on how to recoup my prior smoothness? Thanks.
  3. How do you compare a foreign club that invites you for a Head Coach job interview with your own club?... (For example, I'm coaching Aston Vila at 6th place in the Premier League, and was invited by Borussia Dortmund. It doesn't look much richer than Aston but its Senior Squad is more expensive in market value and salaries...). What criteria do you use to compare clubs, etc.?... (Is there any page to Compare clubs, just as we compare players?). Thanks.
  4. Thanks so much. It sounds quite interesting and even helpful. I skimmed it, and found it to be quite wordy though. Any chance of writing more concisely, if possible? Thank you.
  5. @optimusprimal82 Thanks so much for your advice shared throughout the forum. I'd have one request or suggestion if I may: to write more concisely, if possible, more to the point. Less words.
  6. Star ratings are based on the relative ability of the player in relation to both internal team (as assessed by coaches) and external league (as assessed by scouts). Your star distribution will change as soon as the season restarts and your scouts restart evaluating your squad against the new league you are in.
  7. Eyeballing on a few select highlights is not a good method. I'm looking for a more quantitative ("scientific") approach to evaluate and determine individual performance. This quantitative approach is closer to what I'm looking for. More specifically, are there any stats on crosses attempted vs connected vs converted?...
  8. I usually play with a 4-1-2-2-1 formation: 1 striker and two wingers. When I'm not scoring enough, my initial reaction is to blame the striker. But then I realized that wingers are responsible for creating opportunities. So there is chance creation and chance conversion... Are there any page/stats where I can review whose fault it is (striker or winger) when I'm not scoring as often as I should? Thanks
  9. Yes. My teams tend to squander sure wins with such end-of-game upsets. To keep the advantage, I tweak Team Instructions to make them slow down the ball, shorter passes, more disciplined, etc. and I also keep shouting them to tighten up or concentrate. It seems to work a bit.
  10. I have a 20-yr old midfielder who gets tired quickly during matches. His physical condition drops to 70%s while still mid game, although his Stamina, Strength and Work Rate are 15. See his profile below. What should I do in terms of training and tactics to make him last longer during matches? Thanks.
  11. Thanks much for the detailed steps, @phnompenhandy, but I can't locate the editor (see image below). Is this something I have to purchase separately? Thanks for your patience.
  12. How do I add a real club to a lower league then please? (I'm not referring to creating a new club). Thanks much.
  13. Thank you. I see that I can create a club and add it to a specific local tournament. But I wanted to add a club that actually exists (rather than creating one) and add it.
  14. Hi. I'd like to play a minor club that is not available to be played in FM. It's a small club in the Carioca (Rio de Janeiro State) championship, and I'd like to include it Brazil's Third Division. Any instructions on how to include a non-playable clubs? Many thanks
  15. 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....
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. The light post disappeared. Perhaps your team took care of it? Thanks.
  24. Hi. Any updates please? @Hugo Mendes Albino
  25. 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.
