  1. What the hell happened! Put the game down for a few days. Was on a nice run with Chelsea 2nd in PL after 14 games, with 10 wins. City were on a roll winning every game. Came back after the update, 3 games, 0 shots on goal, 1 red card, 2 conceded penalties. Even in one game Arsenal went down to 10 men and then beat me 3-0. Lacazette beat 6 defenders all by himself, only player in my half. I'm scratching my head. Feels like a different game. Would share the game but I didn't save that. This is supposed to be fun, but just became impossible!
  2. No problem. I have a PKM from my last match. It happened three times (mind 42, then at 65:50 in an exchange between Tomori and Jorginho, and 84:43 in an exchange between Azpi and Jorginho). Whats funny is I can replicate by watching highlights, and even recorded. When I watched the recording back it no longer repeats the tapping of the ball. If you can't see in the pkm I will try and record the highlight in windowd. Shakhtar v Chelsea.pkm
  3. Rarely comment on the match engine, and having been playing FM/CM games since they first came out. I don't know, can't quite put my finger on this version, but the match engine just doesn't quite flow. The misses appear wild (player and AI), and its just very fragmented and not as representative of football I watch week in week out. Last years version just felt more natural/fluid to watch. The 1-1s are a killer also, and frustrating haha!
  4. Having issue with sound during 3D match. Game runs smooth, but the sound stops and starts repeatedly. Best way to describe it is when you first kick off; the sound will stop altogether and then start over (no whistle, just stop start). Might happy 5+ times a half. Also, an issue with the sound of when someone kicks the ball. You hear tap, tap, tap when dribbling etc, but then there is a frantic "tap tap tap tap tap tap tap" when the ball isn't even moving. Best way to describe this is like a repeated sound that got stuck on. Also, note there was another thread where sound cutting off after a substitution was noted. Running a powerful one year old computer, no issues on previous FMs. I may update my soundcard driver to see if that helps though (but have no other sound issues on computer).
  5. Would love to see some screen shots of the Chelsea youth coming through. Just can't help but feel the likes of Mount, Tomori and James are underrated. Take Mount (3 years of senior football now) vs. Foden (1 goal in 22 appearances).
  6. As the title says, how do you increase the number of coaches allowed for either U23 and/or U18? My current path is U23 >> Staff >> Coaching >> Upper left corner Coaching team click the + and ask for more coaches allowed The problem is this screen leads to a conversation with the Chairman for First Team coaches.
  7. One more thing that is more evident - players needing a rest. This is across human and AI teams. They're all spent and its only Dec.
  8. The update coincided with the start of my second season (Chelsea). Fixture list was not kind - Arsenal (A), Liverpool (H), Man Utd (A), so a little frustrated by those results like, but even through pre-season I noticed: Lower penalty success rate (as noted above) Goal keeper mistakes. Went all of last season without anything glaring, this time in 5 games twice he has dribbled out, been tackled by striker, and scored an empty goal. I have since changed role to Sweeper Keeper Defend vs Support and seems better Freekicks - they go in, a lot Goals seem more spectacular, which is fun to watch The above is all muddied by new signings and coaches etc, but was a perceived difference.
  9. 35. Started mid-90s with Italia Manager, which I believe was 1995 and I was 12. First in UK, my golden CM years at Uni (so much time :)), then had family bring the game with them to the US. Steam was great for me! Skipped a few years around 2012, but FMT got me going again, and back to full version now. Beyond breathing, CM/FM might be the second highest activity in my life.
  10. In recent years I've been playing FMT more than FM. This year I can't settle on the purple in FMT, and want to delve back into FM. I have one gripe that I can't solve. In FMT I created a manager appearance using a pic and editing. Not quite me, but it works. Some might say an improvement! Using the exact same picture in FM, I look like the devil with stark white eyes. No matter what I do or how many times I attempt this the profile just looks odd, and I can't stand looking at the computer generated image of the Manager in my profile. My question is, can I copy the file that has my FMT appearance to the folder for FM? If so, where is this file located?
  11. What a fascinating thread this turned out to be. Credit to Neil and SI team for candid responses. I do question some of the responses saying to add more staff - if only it was that easy in the real world! I’ve been playing FM since floppy disk days. Love it. Always have. It’s part of life. I have less time than ever to play now. FM Touch 2016 was a breath of fresh air for me. FMT 2017 was immense. I’m disappointed in FMT2018 as I feel that game is edging closer toward the full game with unnecessary complication. Anyway I digress. Keep up the good work. Someone mentioned earlier the hours played for investment. It’s hard to beat that. Going to the movies costs $50 these days. Buying FM for a similar price feels quite fair (I buy FMT on iOS and steam). Shoot there was a period I’d have to wait for family to visit from the UK to bring a version over to me - I’d have paid $100 back then! I always look back to secondary school and university days and recall the versions of FM. Way off topic but I live for each iteration to recapture that magic.
  12. Long time player (Italia Manager), yet to pick up FM18 and migrated to Touch two years ago. Checked out football manager.com website to learn more about this years iteration earlier today. Delete this thread as needed, but wanted to highlight that “touch” and three animated arrows pointing to a certain area may have been a design prank or accidental error.
  13. I'd agree and was going to post exactly the same. Played FMT17 on iPad Air 2 in 3D graphics without issue. FMT17 in my opinion is unwatchable. I've reverted to 2D view for matches. Unfortunate.
  14. I may have solved this. My iPad uses US App Store, I just happen to be in London over release date. I'll wait till midnight east coast time!
  15. I saw FMT was available on iOS App Store. Is that limited to U.K. App Store, with US to follow? I was unable to find when searching.
