  1. Thanks for the quick response, I'm glad its not just something I'm doing wrong!! Excellent work again with this update.
  2. Hi, Just a quick question. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue. When starting a new game as one of the NCAA colleges (Duke for example.) Every time I click on the 'competitions' tab on the left hand side, the game crashes. Has anyone experienced this? FM is up to date, and this is the only add on I have loaded. Maybe I'm doing something really simple wrong. This database looks awesome and I really can't wait to use it, all your hard work is greatly appreciated.
  3. Top advice. Home by 4pm, College work and tea takes you up to 7.30 - 8pm. Then you've got 3 to 4 hours to do whatever the hell you want. Also, plenty of time in between lectures on "free" periods to do work. As a kicker, most colleges have sports on wednesday afternoon, so don't try out for any teams, but instead spend your 'sports' time playing FM!
  4. I think it was 1986, on the Commadore 64. Firstly it was Soccer Supremo, quickly followed by Mexico 86. You selected your team by entering the players initials (Eg CW for Chris Waddle) thus meaning you couldn't have two players with the same initials in your team!! No Chris Woods in goal when Chris Waddle was in the side! And people complain about FM11!
  5. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS back up your fm save onto some other device, drop box, a pen drive, an external hard drive. Got mine backed up in 3 different places!! Of course, I also learnt my lesson the hard way a few years back!
  6. I try to play a counter attacking style myself, with a deep line and a slow tempo, high timewasting setting to try and draw them out. Also, my attacking mid centre or my deep lying forward (or both) will have the roam from position option set to yes so they drift into space.
  7. I signed a guy in my game who was pretty decent but potentially excellent. For the first few games the assman said he was struggling to blend in, and his performances were around the 6.5 mark. Dropped him down to the bench for a few games, then when he came on as a sub once he lit the game up. Started him the game after and he's been on fire ever since. I noticed just after he went on fire that he was no longer listed as 'struggling to blend in.' I can only assume that once he blended in, his performances improved to reflect this. Of course, how long it takes them to blend in depends on many factors like adaptability.
  8. Try the below link. Its a little lengthy, but near the bottom he talks about what the assistant feedback means. (Eg Misplacing to many short passes means you need to increase your passing length etc) It worked for me. I'll be struggling, but a small adjustment to passing or tempo and all of a sudden I'm dominating. He doesn't talk about what 'our finishing is letting us down' means, but I was struggling with my finishing, but when I fine tuned my tactics with some of the below advice the goals started flooding in. http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/115392-I-think-I-m-on-to-something-read-if-you-are-new-or-are-struggling-with-tactics
  9. I don't think you can edit this. I wanted to get rid of all the international competitions and just have a World League, where international teams would be promoted and relegated yearly. I couldn't find a way of doing it. Maybe it effects the coefficients or some other important rating system to much to change it.
  10. Foggy I would suggest putting the game down for a few days and becoming a reader. Read some of the brilliant threads on here (by Sfraser and a like.) They generally talk common sense but also they clear up some things that you might not expect. For example, I had always thought that passing style worked like this. You played short passing if you wanted nice neat football, direct if you wanted to be long ball merchants and mixed for a bit of both. When you actually read into it, you realize that short passing just minimizes the options for the man on the ball, while direct maximizes the options. So where previously I'd have had my CB's on direct passing because I didn't want them trying intricate passing routines, I was getting this completely wrong. i needed them on short passing so that they would just give it to the nearest man and let them do the complicated things. Once I'd cracked these 'obvious' little things my teams improved greatly.
  11. This is classic. Absolutely brilliant. I always thought that if I won the lottery, i would start a journeyman game and then just go round living in the places I was managing for a while. What a great way to see the world!
