  1. As in previous years, I have been using FM to run a World Cup where each nation is represented by players who play in that country. E.g. Ronaldo represents Italy, rather than Portugal. So far, the winners were Germany (2017) and Spain (2018) This is a link for the first episode of this: https://hypo-fm.weebly.com/draft-world-cup-2019/introduction I'm nearly at the end of a long qualifying process. For the finals, I would like it if other people would like to pick the squad/team/tactics for some of the nations. I'd still run the finals on my game, but it's difficult to try and come up with identities for literally hundreds of different teams. So, if you are interested - particularly if there's a league you know well - let me know!
  2. I am importing teams to use in this year's Versus Mode, and an irritating error I flagged up immediately from last year's FM Touch is still present. When you go to add in a few teams, sometimes it randomly starts renaming teams after teams already imported. For example, in the screenshot attached, I have imported the team Singapore, and then when I go to import Bahrain, they have also been renamed Singapore. It is only the team name that is changed - everything else is correct. Sometimes it will rename a previously-imported team after a newly-imported team (so, in the screenshot attached, as if it renamed South Korea after Bahrain, for example).
  3. Me too, would love an up-to-date Japanese database.
  4. Hi there, I am working on an FM database, and I'd like to be able to edit it using multiple computers. Firstly, I have tried saving it to my PC, then finding the file to save to a memory stick. When I saved the file in the Editor I used the location Sports Interactive -> Editor 2019. However, when I view in My Computer, I cannot find said file (in fact, it's only showing the folder 'skins', when the Editor shows several folders. I have it set so I can see hidden folders/files. Secondly, I have tried saving it to the cloud, but on my other machines the data doesn't appear when I try and load from the cloud. AIs anyone able to point me in the right direction?
  5. I've been doing a FM18 version of my Draft World Cup, going through qualification - and I am making the finals sync with the actual World Cup (so there'll be between 1-4 games added each day). Here is the first post of the finals - it's the opening match between Germany and Croatia: https://hypo-fm.weebly.com/draft-world-cup-2018/day-1-group-stage
  6. I'd like to bump this bug, because it is still an issue four months later.
  7. Hi, I have a load of teams I have exported from FM18 for use in FM Touch Versus Mode. I want to use these teams for a league, all controlled by managers from the same computer (so I'm not using it as an online game, or against the AI managers). Let's say I want to import teams called Team A, Team B, Team C and Team D. When I go to import them, often it botches the import, and a newly-imported side ends up with the same name as a previously-imported side. For example, I'll import Team A, that will work fine (the first one always does). But when I go to import Team B, they come up called "Team A", albeit with the kit and players of Team B. So it's not a fatal error - I do end up with two separate teams - but it's a real pain if the teams end up being called the wrong thing. Often, if I add in Team C and Team D, they'll both be called Team C - it seems to do it in pairs. It worked fine for the first four leagues I've set up, but suddenly this bug has appeared. I should add that this occasionally happened in FM Touch 2017 as well.
  8. Hi there, I've been doing a blog on FM17 where I used the Draft Mode to run a World Cup where each team was based on players who play in that country, rather than their nation of birth (so Ronaldo is eligible for Spain, not Portugal, for example). The first episode is here: https://hypo-fm.weebly.com/draft-world-cup/introduction, and each episode links to the next (or you can click Draft World Cup at the top to be taken to a list of all episodes) - it's all been completed now, I timed it to finish on FM18 release day last week. There's a lot of opportunities to vote - e.g. for best goal of each qualifying group, plus a load of awards at the end of the full tournament. I'm looking to do a new one for FM18 to coincide with the actual World Cup, so please let me know what you think!
  9. Ah, sorry about that - I'll post it over there. Feel free to delete this thread. Cheers.

  11. Hi there, I have created a new competition, but I can't see where I can add in the rules of the competition - for example, stipulating that it's a double round-robin league, or when the fixture dates are. Cheers.
  12. Hi there, I am trying to set up a very simple competition (5-team league) for some teams I have created. The teams are from different nations, and potentially different continents (they don't have to be, but I'd prefer them to be), so I thought the best type of competition for my league would be a Friendly one. Anyway, I can't see anywhere for me to actually edit the rules of the competition - e.g. stipulating that it's a league, its start date, number of fixtures, etc. Any help would be appreciated - this is my first time using an editor since around 2004, so it's all very new to me.
  13. Some simple suggestions for the editor mode: When you are creating a new player: - while choosing what his skin and hair colours are, there should be a little picture of what you guy will look like using the 3d engine. - you should be able to add photos for people. If there's a licensing issue over some players, why not make it so you can only add pictures for players you've created? - when you are editing the attributes of players, you should be able to get a little description of what each ones entails. I find too many of them too vague, for example I assumed that a Temperament of 20 would result in a volatile player, but actually that would be a temperament of 1.
