  1. I have never seen a B team get promoted from below the lowest playable league. Not only that, when working on a Faroese structure (which has B teams present, as in Spain), the six B teams in the bottom division simply never get promoted if the league is inactive, despite their respective first teams being several divisions up and not presenting any possibility of a clash. Activate the league, and lo, B teams start getting promoted Now, it's certainly possible that this is a limitation that only applies, for some reason, to created league structures. But I wouldn't go holding my breath.
  2. Exactly. SI should never have announced this fourteen years ago. Wait...
  3. I think the game would benefit from being able to select your place of birth through a search of all in-game cities, rather than a drop down linked to your first nationality. In addition to the issue Havok has had, your place of birth doesn't always correlate with the nationality you identify with. A lot of people born in Northern Ireland, for example, would consider themselves Irish. Then you've got things like people who were born abroad, but raised from a very early age in the country they consider their home. If John Barnes fancied a game, he'd have to be Jamaican instead of English... Picking your home town is a lovely touch and doubly so if it results in the game recognising when you get involved with your local side, so a few small tweaks would be great.
  4. Formerly a part of the Netherlands Antilles before it split into its constitutent countries of Aruba (who already had a separate team), Curaçao (who inherit the Antilles football history) and Bonaire. They're associate members of CONCACAF, so will compete in the Caribbean Cup. Tsk, don't you follow Dutch territory representative football? I thought everyone did!
  5. Cross save compatibility gets disabled when you go above three countries because the Vita simply doesn't have the memory capabilities to run it with more. There's a hard limit there that SI just can't get around.
  6. Aye, if I wasn't going Classic on the Vita, I'd be up for a club and country game. As it is... well, it might be tough going.
  7. I'm in a similar boat - I didn't buy a Vita just for FMC (that'd be madness, I say, madness) but its presence did kind of accelerate the process. As did Tesco's rather nice £129 deal. With a PS+ subscription on top, makes sense to grab a Vita early and avail of the freebies.
  8. This is the best news. I realise I sound sarcastic but I'm not, there's something oddly joyful about it. Now all we need is enough Gibraltarians in the game to get control over the side, and we're sorted.
  9. I think it's hard to discount the experience of having been trained for a particular position, or more accurately these days, a role. It's all very well and good having the attributes for a particular role, but if you haven't had training in order to play there, you're going to flounder. Your positional sense will be off, you'll not have the same intuitive understanding of what your role requires, you'll be working much, much harder just to fit into the team as a unit. In that sense, I think fixed positions do a good job of reflecting that, and the option to retrain a player for a position fulfills the requirement of being able to give the player that necessary training and familiarity with the role.
  10. You can try setting your power options to a low power setting, although this means reducing the processing speed so you may understandably be reluctant. Other than that, your options are to either (or both) open up the thing and clean away any accumulated dust and other nonsense that's making it harder to move cool area around, or invest in a good laptop cooler from Amazon. Both my previous laptops had issues with overheating, and FM's a prime culprit given that it does an enormous amount of processing, working the CPUs hard. Laptop coolers solved both issues, but you do need a good one - not a cheap plastic tat with a pathetic fan.
  11. It sets the division that a team should play in for leagues that play from March to October, if the game happens to start in the 2012 season rather than the 2011. For example, in Sweden last year, Halmstad and Trelleborg were relegated. If you opt for a 2012 start, you'd rather have the correct teams for that division - Atvidaberg and GIF Sundsvall - in their place.
  12. Oops - I forgot I'd already uploaded my Luxembourg file to the Dugout, here. Well, at least it's been tested!
  13. I'm not aware of TV money being an option for any competitions other than leagues. You can set the prize money to take into account the TV money though. So, if each team was to get £10m in TV money, you could ensure that even if they lost all their matches, they'd still get £10m through the prize money for losing a group stage match or knockout round.
  14. Hey dude, if it's just the leagues you're looking for, I've got one with the top two levels made. I'm currently testing it for finances, etc, so you'll have to bear with me for a bit, but I'll let you know here when it's done.
  15. They have histories set, and the issue is continuous, i.e. it happens season after season, rather than just the initial season.
