  1. Hi. I am not going to get a chance to download the latest update and play the game for a few days to check this myself. Would someone be so kind as to let me know which clubs have their manager positions vacant at the start of the winter update 20.3? I am planning on starting unemployed so was wondering which clubs or nations are looking for a manager from day 1.
  2. I'm having a very frustrating time with this tactic....Newcastle 7th in Prem so that's not bad on paper. Thing is I am amazing at home (beat City, beat Chelsea, put 4 past Man U) but can't buy a result away from home. Just got tonked 5-0 by Norwich at Carrow Road. Currently midway through season 1. Latest patch.
  3. Hi Neil, Is it SI's intention to eventually release a full update to the game or will Mac users be required to use the public beta from now on for the lagging issue? Conscious that you guys are probably well into the development of FM2020 and we don't usually get any full game updates released in May of the following year.
  4. Anderlecht start off with big debts. I picked up all off the above for small transfer fees. Luckily the club continued to restructure their debt as the first season went on, but by then end of Season 1 you can expect to be very much in the red. Get through the first season without going bankrupt (and win the League as I did) and the finances become less of an issue and you get Champions League revenue. I still cant splsh the cash. but to be fair I wanted a challenge where I rebuilt the team with promising Belgian prospects. The two fullbacks, Alexis Saelemaekers and Elias Cobbaut were outstanding for me last season. Sebastiaan Bournouw looks a great prospect at CB too.
  5. Turning off retina doesn’t make much difference for me, lag is still rubbish and 3D unwatchable
  6. Same problem (and identical to the last issue which broke it for all Mac users, and I couldn't play for 2 weeks.) Apple are going to continue to release updates to their OS throughout the year. Are we going to get issues every time they do that? SI are going to have to start advertising this as running only on Windows if they can't support MacOS. Very frustrating and really poor customer support. Was anything learned from the last time we had this? We'll get a patch in a week or two which will fix it, then Apple will roll out 10.14.6 and we will be back at square one with an unplayable 3D match engine. Not good enough.
  7. Hi Knap....I'm going to switch to this version, but do you foresee any issues with me dragging the WBs into a more conventional back 4 shape? they will still maintain all the personal instructions if I do this right? Suits my fullbacks more being a flatter back 4 shape.
  8. I'm playing as Anderlecht and have signed the following young Belgians who all look to have high potential. Does anyone have any experience of any of these in their game and how they have developed? : Maarten Vandevoort (GK) Genk Yorbe Vertessen (ST) PSV Dante Rigo (MC) PSV Flor Van Den Eynden (DC) Inter Laurens Symons (ST) Lokeren
  9. Same problem. Everything was fine until Steam pulled down 19.2.2 tonight. Now 3D highlights are stuttering and lagging terribly. Was smooth as butter before. MacBook Pro 2014 model with the Intel Iris 1536 MB graphics. Graphics settings are on low.
  10. Tried restarting the game, reloading the skin and various other things, but the game is now broken on Mac. Was fine prior to 19.2.2 Match engine was very smooth. The latest update has made it unplayable on Mac. You have to hope it was tested cross platform before pushing this update out? Any way of rolling back to 19.2.1? Doubt it.
  11. I have exactly the same issue. Match engine was very smooth, now stutters so bad the game is unwatchable. MacBook Pro 2014. Graphics settings turned down low and still very very laggy.
  12. If he loses his job today at Real Madrid, will this be too late to make it into the game on Friday this week? I know I can use the editor, was just curious about when the actual data gets locked pre-release. Thanks.
  13. How are you using background pics? I thought the skin released with the FM16 Beta did not support them. Is that a different skin?
  14. Hi. Can anyone advise me on the following? I have 3D kits for the English Championship I want to add to FM16 when released (why, when they will already be there? Well, I don't like the gold trim in the new Forest kit and I may end up playing with them and expect them to resort to white trim after 1 season). I realise that the game ships with licensed 3D kits for this league already. Will my new graphics folder overwrite the licensed 3D kits? (in the same way adding a 2D kit to the club info screen does, assuming you uptick caching and reload the skin).
  15. Thought about Wolves but recently found out they are up for sale. Heard some horror stories about takeovers in the game resulting in manager sackings. Wouldn't touch Leeds with a barge pole with that crazy owner. If the game is realistic then you could get the sack after a couple of bad results.
  16. Thanks for the reply Nottingham Forest. TBH, I didn't realise about the embargo so that would be a deal breaker for me as I will want to try and bring in a few players in the first window regardless of my current squad strength (i.e. hot prospects). Probably go for Real Sociedad. Anyhow, Moyes will probably get the sack before the game release even if the data is now locked.
  17. Any ideas how Steve Morgan's decision to step down will be implemented in FM16. I was tempted to start as Wolves but will it be the case of some new owner coming in within a few weeks of the game start and potentially sacking any new manager ?
  18. or maybe Aston Villa. Like the idea of taking a fallen giant (Villa, Forest) back to European glory.
  19. I am currently pondering which team to start with on FM16 in a couple of weeks. I want a team I can grow over a few seasons to be league challengers. I have narrowed it down to 2 teams. Which of these do you think would be the better for a long term save: Real Sociedad Nottingham Forest
  20. Just won my 3rd league title in a row. I don't think throwing lucrative new contracts at Salvio, Gaitan and Balanta is going to work this summer as they all have had their heads turned. Now I have been offered the Arsenal job. Should I take it? I don't really want to leave Benfica but I think I might have taken this team as far as I can go, especially if my best players start to want to leave and I end up having to rebuild.
  21. What an end to the first season..With about 5 games to go Porto overtook me, but then they lost surprisingly at Guimaraes and with two home games to go I was ahead by 3 points, needing just 4 points from those 2 home games to secure the title. But In the penultimate game at home I was 0-1 down with 2 minutes to go when Nelson Oliveira snatched a late equaliser to get a draw. We subsequently beat relegated Penafiel on the last day to win the league. Phew. If it hadn't of been for that late Oliveira goal we would have thrown it away as Porto took 6 points from the last 2 games and had a better head to head record. A few grey hairs later......
  22. I've worked in IT for 20 years and have preferred using a Mac for probably 10 of those. People don't chose to use a Mac because they don't understand computers. Nearly every technical architect or designer I have worked with in IT has preferred using a Mac. A preference for one OS over another is subjective.
  23. I'm top of the league at Christmas first season, but only by a point from Porto. (who beat me 1-0 at Estadio Dragao). Won the Supertaca and have qualified from the CL group, but drawn Bayern in the knock out round Best performers are the obvious ones: Salvio, Gaitan, Balanta, Lima, Jonas, Enzo Perez and Talisca all dong very well. Prob looking for a couple of fullbacks in terms of next window.
  24. I run FM 15 on the 13" retina MacBook Pro in your link. Same dual-core 2.6GHz i5 CPU, same 8GB RAM, just double the SSD storage. I usually have it connected up to a 24" Asus monitor, as I like as much screen real estate when playing FM. I run 18 leagues form 13 nations on a large database. It processes all the background fixtures and leagues very quickly - there is no waiting around like in the old days of Champ Man when the software seemed to be ahead of the hardware. The only issue I have is that I noticed on default 3D graphics there was a little stutter now again, so I lowered the frame rate and it is very smooth now. You'll be fine with that spec.
  25. I found this guy on day 1 (I always look at who is available on a freebie) and had him scouted but when I made a move his wage demands put me off...looks decent though and can do a job at LB as well so a very good sub
