  1. Finally got FM 19, starting a career with Tottenham. In my first preseason, I have a training camp scheduled for NY in the USA. I want to schedule some friendlies, but it only shows me the option of some pretty low level USA teams. Any help or suggestions on how to schedule some better teams to play while in the USA. I thought there used to be an option showing teams touring/training in the USA also that you could play? Or should I search for some better teams and try to play them in the USA while my camp is going? Any help/advice is appreciated.
  2. First, I’m playing with Tottenham and my youth recruitment level is at extensive, but I still have the option to request an increase in it on my board request options. When I do, it says “your youth recruitment is now considered extensive”. Is this a bug? I don’t see any point in continuing to ask for an increase in it. But I thought the option would disappear when it reached it highest level. Also, I am wanting to find newgen wonderkids from around the world. Is there a easy way to search for this? I have both the world scouting packages, and 16 pretty good scouts. Any advice on how to search for these players? I appreciate anyone’s time and feedback.
  3. Does it matter what country the HOYD is from or has extensive knowledge of? I’m starting a save with Tottenham and found a German HOYD I like, he speaks English, has good ratings, but only knowledge of Germany so far. Should I find one from England? Or should it be ok?
  4. I am starting a new save with Tottenham, and have a training camp in Los Angeles. I am trying to schedule friendlies but my only options are really low level American teams. Before the latest update, it would have an option of scheduling teams that were also touring close, but that never appears now. Any suggestions on getting better friendlies during the training camp period?
  5. Is it better to have a HoYD from the same country, or one with knowledge of your country? Or is it not a big deal? I’m managing Tottenham and found a German HoYD I like, but he has nothing knowledge wise for England.
  6. Just a quick question, has the random shooting and awful shots been fixed? My last match I played a couple of days ago, Harry Kane shot from right outside the box, directly in front of goal, and hit the corner flag.
  7. I run a 4123 DM formation with 2 wingers and 1 striker right now and I won the league in my first season. I signed Dolberg and De Ligt, and also signed Gelson Martins. I have nice depth on my wings and midfield also. Dolberg played AML and Striker and he had 31 goals for me.
  8. When can I offer a player a contract based on their contract expiring? There are 2 players I’m interested in and shows their contract is up in 6 months or so.
  9. Is there a way I can edit the Brexit happening during my save? I’m in November of my second season with Tottenham. If so, how would I do that?
  10. I am enjoying this years game very much. The only thing that is bothering me is long shots/crazy close range shots. Im playing with Tottenham and there are many instances where one of my attacking players such as Harry Kane will be right outside the box and his shot hits the corner flag pole. Really? I can understand missing shots wide and high, but I’ve never seen anyone shoot and hit the ball close to where corners are taken. Even some close range shots go wide by 10 yards at times. SI, is this going to be fixed in the next update? I know the game will never be perfect, but It’s the main thing that is hurting my game in my opinion.
  11. Smurf, Why do you feel the i7-7700 would be better than the i7-7820? I thought I read that the 7820 was the newer Kaby Lake processor.
  12. So I’ve decided to get an Alienware R4. I’m choosing between 2 models. 1st is on sale for $2479. I7-7820 processor, 32gb RAM, 256ssd & 1tb HD. NVidia GTX 1080 graphics card and a 17.3 QHD 2560x1440 120hz with g-sync 400-nits screen 2nd is on sale for 2190. I7-7820 processor, 16gb RAM, 256ssd & 1tb HD. NVidia GTX 1070 graphics card and a 17.3 QHD 2560x1440 120hz with g-sync 400-nits screen i will use for FM18, civilization and sim games. My wife will use it for WoW, Starcraft, and games like that. I want to run FM with all countries and largest DB possible. Whats your opinion on which I should get. It more RAM and one step up graphics card gonna make a huge difference for my games? We are purchasing this as a laptop to last us a good 4-6 years, and want to play FM on it with max database for years to come.

  14. No, the more expensive one has a better screen with g-sync, but can be harder to view at angles. It’s UHD vs FHD
  15. I am looking to purchase one of these today! I am pretty excited about my decision to go with Alienware. I will use it to play Football Manager, Civilization, and similar games. My wife will use it to play Diablo and Starcraft and similar games. We have saved for this purchase and we picked Alienware because we love the look, options, customizable options, and build. And we want one that will play the type of games we like for a few years. I am not sure which model to go with. The only difference between the 2 is the screen I think. Can you all give me some feedback and suggestions? Also, if you think I should go with a different model for what we need it for, please send me suggestions. Here are the 2 I am looking at right now:https://www.bestbuy.com/site/alienw...id-state-drive-silver/5713009.p?skuId=5713009https://www.bestbuy.com/site/alienw...id-state-drive-silver/5713010.p?skuId=5713010
  16. Thank you, I’ll check them out. Really want a 17’ screen. I’ll find a few and send them to you. I found a few I like, love the Alienware. But it’s expensive. And I’m really only going to play FM on this laptop.
  17. Need help with a new laptop purchase. I live in the states. Want to be able to run FM 18 with everything selected and large database, and it run quick and smooth if possible. Here’s what I’m looking for: Budget: $1,000 but could go $1,200 at most, cheaper if possible. Want one with a 17’ screen, backlit keyboard. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
  18. Pogba & Neves have been a great combo for me in my Tottenham save.
  19. Working now! Thank you for your help Neil
  20. Hello Neil, it did not work. I'm still getting the same error. Here is my DxDiag.txt DxDiag.txt
  21. Thank you Neil. I am currently reinstalling and will let you know if it works.
  22. I am having this same problem as of today. Please tell me what to do. I have tried everything suggested in your post about the issues. All drivers are up to date and I do not have any security/anti-virus installed yet. Game was downloaded today on a new laptop, and I click play and instillation goes to 1% then Steam Servers too busy Error Code (2) comes up everytime. I have installed other games without issue.
  23. Heading into the end of May on my first season with Tottenham. Is their a big difference in trying to sign my transfers first of June, or end of June when my season expectations/Budget/Payroll is set? I wasn't sure if their would be a big difference between my budget/transfer money between the end of the season and when I'm asked to set the expectations for the next season.
  24. After updating, my game will not launch. I click Football Manager 201, and the black screen appears as if loading, but no graphics show up and my cursor just as the blue spinning circle. When I start my task manager, it always says Football Manager - Not Responding. Now, I can not play the game.
