  1. yes im using DF facepacks. I removed all folders from the SI folder, loaded the game and it worked. closed it down and copied all the folders back over and loaded the game back up and it worked but the minute i went to 'Preferences'>'Interface'>'CLEAR CACHE then again click 'RELOAD SKIN' AS ALWAYS after downloading to folders, the game crashed!
  2. Nothing has changed, the folder is in the default folder as above.
  3. Hi Neil, Thats not the issue. Have tried loading again this morning and game was stuck on loading screen, deleted the Cache and Preferences', verified the game, loaded the game again and was still stuck on the loading screen. Removed all files from the SI folder, loaded the game and it worked so closed the game down and copied all the folders back over again, loaded the game and it worked. The minute i wanted into the'Preferences'>'Interface'>'CLEAR CACHE then again click 'RELOAD SKIN' AS ALWAYS after downloading to folders, the game crashed! Why is this happening as everything was working perfectly before you done the update. Its driving me crazy especially as im disabled and this game is the only thing that keeps me sane. Ive enclosed the latest crash dump, any help will be appreciated to resolve this issue. FM 2020 v20.4.2.1438909 (2020.09.19 11.01.46).dmp
  4. Morning Jimmy, I turned off the public Beta and the game was stuck on the loading screen, turned the Beta back on and it was still stuck on the loading screen. This is doing my head in, everything was fine until the last update.
  5. Hi, Ever since the update ive been unable to load the my game. I'm using the Beta version, Ive followed every step, deleted the Cache and preferences, verified the game files etc all in the correct order and it still wouldnt load. i removed all the files and loaded the game and it worked. I closed the game down and re-added the files and loaded the game up and it worked. I went into the preference's folder to change game display (reload etc.) the game crashed. Ive enclosed a copy DXDiag and the crash dump. also when the game updated i lost my save game, i serched everywhere on my pc for it as per you recommendations and still nothing. So ive lost my previous save game of 1760hrs and now the game wont load which was perfect before this update! please help as im disabled and stuck at home all day and my only vice to stop me going mad is FM. DxDiag 18-9-20.txt FM 2020 v20.4.2.1438568 (2020.09.18 21.47.41).dmp
  6. Hi Kyle, Sorry for the late reply but i was ill yesterday. This morning i deleted and reinstalled FM20 but still had the same issue, i deleted some files from my tactics folder as must of had over 50 which ive been messing around with since November. Loaded the game back up and worked, so i dont know if the amount of tactics you have in your folder has anything to do with it but it certainly worked for me.
  7. Went to load my game this morning and all i'm getting is Football Manager 2020 20.4.1-1363262(Staging). I cant do anything as soon as i click on FM20 from steam this all im getting, cant even start a new game. Ive verified all the files with no issues, deleted and reinstalled steam and still getting this issue. All facepacks ive got loaded have been there since November last year and never had an issue until today and its doing my head in! I would really appreciate if someone could help me as im disabled and my only lifeline is this game and today for some unknown reason i cant do anything. DxDiag 15-6-20.txt
  8. This has to be the best post I’ve read for a long time. What I like is how you new how you wanted to play, stripped it back and started again. You took the time to read some very good posts to help implement your ideas instead of being on here asking questions. In my opinion,you’ve done what I think everyone should do who’s quite new to the game and that’s watch matches to see where issues lay. You made in game changes to your tactic which shows that you can’t just plug and play a tactic anymore. By detailing your dilemmas etc.. I really hope that a lot of people read your post and take everything onboard what you’ve done, I’m a believer that the only way you’re going to learn is to work it out and resolve issues yourself, that’s what you’ve done and I admire that.
  9. Mines easy as its the same side ive been doing forever, FC Porto.
  10. Just seen this thread, I saw a few of Napoli's games last season in UCL on Tv. The way I see their set up is, Attacking/Fluid, Insigne and Callejon I would have as IF(S), Hamsik AP(A). Jorginho as DLP(D) and for Ghoulam and Hysaj I would set them up as FB(S). As for the Team Instructions, I would watch a few games on YouTube to see their style etc.. Shorter Passing is defiantly one.
  11. Nearly 44 and been playing since the very first version in the 80s.
  12. My wife doesn't have any issues in me playing FM, in fact she has had no issues with me ever since she left me 4yrs ago for playing FM too much. Having an accident which left me disabled changed my life and unable to work, so all my time went into playing FM. Everytime I felt low or felt depression kicking in I played FM which she hated as it began to takeover my life(Her words), I told her it was saving my life but she didn't understand. 4yrs later I'm still playing FM without any problems whatsoever as its still saving my life.
