  1. So I've been a bit out of the loop, and missed the whole discussion about Brexit in FM17; only just noticed it. Now I can totally understand why SI incorporated it into the game, and I applaud them for doing so. However, it doesn't suit the way I personally play the game. I found a way to disable it for a new save; however, is it in any way possible to only have the Soft Brexit on a running game? I've already completed about 2 seasons, and it feels a bit of a waste of my game if I throw it away to start over.
  2. By default, the FM theme follows the color of the team you're managing. My current team is Blue, and it's not really pleasing to my eye. Id much prefer the main color to be Black or even Red. Is it possible to change this? Or otherwise, is there a theme out there that does this?
  3. Looking to manage a club but the Chairman Status is Enjoying Life at the Club. I usually prefer clubs that have a chairman that Loves The Club, as they are less likely to be taken over. Is it possible for Chairman Status to go from Enjoying Life At The Club to Loves The Club? If so, what influences it?
  4. Currently looking into a Conference South or North save, with the goal of bringing one of the weaker teams to the top. To which extent does the potential fan base depend on the city the club is from? I'm a bit hesitant taking over a club thats located in a little town, and only finding out that I can't get enough fans because I'm in a little town. In addition, does it look at the size of the specific city, or does it also take into account cities in its proximity? (eg if I manage a club thats 20km from Manchester, it will take that into account)
  5. Thanks, I've tried and also tried restarting my pc without avail. Ultimately found out it was likely because of the time setting of my laptop (I'm currently in Japan). Changed the time setting to a European time and all worked out. Now lets get down to play, keep it up!
  6. Good job guys, looking forward to play. Just bought the game after this patch released, but now when I want to install, I get this error: any idea what causes this?
  7. Hi guys, im looking for a team in Blue Square North/South. Preferably a team that is predicted to end in a low position; any recommendations?
  8. Currently looking to pick a club in the BSN/BSS to rise to the top, but I was wondering if the hometown of a city has an influence on potential fan base. In real life, obviously a club located in a small town is less likely to have as many fans as a club based in London or Manchester. Is this also the case in FM, or doesn't it have an influence?
  9. Thanks for your response. The point is, I don't have the laptop yet, I will receive it in a few weeks. The thing is: I really want to start a new game. I don't really mind if for those 2 weeks it runs ****** on my old laptop, I'm just curious how many leagues I could handle so I can already make that save game. Maybe there must be someone on here with the RMBP (lower-end) who can tell me what is the recommended setup?
  10. In order for you to give a good estimation, you would need specs right? I thought RAM was the most important for FM, so therefore I just put down that. Processor is an i7 2,3 ghz.
  11. Hi, I'm currently running an old toshiba notebook with just 2gb ram, but I just ordered a new Mac with 16gb. However, it will only arrive in about 3 weeks, and my vacation just started: FM-time! Because I obviously want to transfer the savegame to my new Mac (and my savegames normally run for a full year), I want to get as many competitions as possible. How many leagues/nations would you recommend for the new MB-laptop?
  12. Oh come on, there are many clubs that are able to afford C. Ronaldo, especially if there is no transfer fee. I could name at least 25 clubs that could.
  13. Well, I'm a bit further in-game now and they still only want the non-contracts. However, some of the players have a really high potential (as in, 18 year old kids already being my stars with good stats) and I don't want to risk them walk away on a non-contract for free, instead of catching 100k for them. I can't imagine no other LLM-players are struggling with this?!
  14. Ahh, that's what I was afraid for. Another issue with the non-contracts then I think, as these players are already on part-time contracts so it's weird that suddenly they all demand non-contracts, right?
  15. Bumping this one on top, kind of afraid to continue my game cause I don't wanna risk losing my star players
