  1. Throughout each season I create scouting assignments for my scouts. Since they are all based in a region or country or competition, on the scouting assignments screen I merely see the name of that country or region or competition. But I set different scouting requirements for different scouts based on their skills or my team needs. But when I view the scouting assignments screen I don't know which requirements I've assigned to which scouts as all the assignments have this generic place or competition name. It would be helpful if I could give each assignment a title such as "Goalkeepers under 23" or something like that.

    Average Gamer Age

    I'm 53 and from the USA. This is probably the 5th or 6th version of FM I've owned. I had over 900 hours played on FM18 and I'm already over 100 hours on FM 19. I typically play lower league teams and try to work my way up. I'd say Roma is my favorite team in real life, but I like to play all over Europe in FM.
  3. I created a new save and took over Notts Co again, as I thought maybe it was a problem specific to that team or something? But of course since it was the start of the 18/19 season, instead of the middle of the following season, the whole team dynamic was different. Even the captains were different, and when I warned the current captain about changing, he was fine with it. So obviously I couldn't reproduce it either. So going forward, every time I have a captaincy choice to make, I'll create a backup save in case it happens again so I can send it to SI.
  4. Thanks. I'll make a test save and see if I can reproduce it, and if so I'll upload the file.
  5. I took over Notts Co in November 2019. One of the first things i was asked to do was to pick a captain. My intention was to pick Scott Laird as captain and move current captain Matt Tootle to assistant captain. When I was asked to warn Tootle he asked me to keep him as captain, so I decided to do so and ended the conversation. After exiting the conversation I couldn't select Tootle as captain. I had to pick someone else, so I chose Laird and moved Tootle to #2, but after confirming I went into the tactic screen and changed them back (Tootle captain, Laird VC). Of course this move pissed off all my players. Unfortunately I don't have a save, but it should be pretty easy to replicate. Just take over a team and when asked to choose a captain, go to change it and warn the current guy, but then tell him he'll stay as captain when you have the warning discussion.
  6. Working as you described now. I assume that's new for FM 2019 because I don't recall it working that way previously. Thanks for the info!
  7. Ok, as soon as I have time I'll get back into it and take another look as the January window just opened. Thanks for the fast reply!
  8. I'm running Charlton Athletic in League One. I took over in November, so I missed the first transfer window. - Since taking over I've asked my scouts to identify potential loan targets at any position - I've also used the Player Search and Scouted Players screens, checking "Interested in loan" box - In either case, either via my scouts assignments or by checking the "interested in loan" box, all I get back is goalkeepers. - I can search for loan listed players and get all positions. Unknown yet if anyone besides a GK would accept a loan to my team as I just got to my first transfer window. Though I do intend to pursue some loans immediately. I can provide a save game file if it would help.

    [Italy] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Thanks for that. I hadn't started a new save since the beta came out.

    [Italy] (Official) League Specific Issues

    Just to add on to this Serie C matches mostly being shown as "neutral" stadiums and when you actually play the match it's called "unknown stadium". The bit I'm adding is that when these "neutral site" games are played, it always looks like the same generic stadium. It even has light poles that block part of the TV camera view of each end of the pitch. Not a deal breaker, but certainly an annoyance.
  11. Any idea when network play will be added to the game? At least if I have to deal with windowed mode I'd at least like to play against my pals instead of the AI.

    windowed mode fix?

    I run at 1920x1200 and I can't get the game to go into fullscreen mode. Not interested in changing my screen resolution. But the game window is too small.

    FM 13: Inter Milan - The finances are fading...

    I know. I have it. As I wrote in my first post I chose to use the original database because I wanted Sniejder and Coutinho

    FM 13: Inter Milan - The finances are fading...

    Ok, thanks. I guess my players weren't too interested in the Europa League. We opened the Serie A season with a 3-0 win over Siena. Cassano scored once and Sniejder scored twice. Maybe they'll start paying attention to my team talks now....

    FM 13: Inter Milan - The finances are fading...

    Hi All, I've been wanting to give Inter a run for a long time so I finally got around to doing so. I've managed quite a few teams in Italy over the past few FM years including guiding AS Roma to Serie A and Champions League titles in FM12. What has interested me about Inter the last couple of seasons is that they seem to me to be a bit of an aging team on the decline and I like that my biggest challenge will be fixing the team finances. So I started an Inter save using the original default database because I wanted Sneijder & Coutinho on my team. My first order or business was to try to reduce the wage bill without selling Sneijder or Coutinho and I did so by selling Milito to Chelsea for 7.5M Euros. My board and fans were not very happy with me about that transaction. The reason I decided to sell Milito was it seemed to me that he and Cassano are very similar style players and Milito was of course older. I felt I needed a real poacher type player and neither of them seemed to fill that bill very well. I then signed Zanetti & Samuel to 1 year extensions and got them both to take pay cuts. In Zanetti's case he agreed to almost half his salary, down to 50k per week. Then I set my sights on acquiring a young poacher who I hope can play now. His name is Ademllson and I got him from Sao Paolo in Brazil for 6M Euros: I loaned out most of my reserve team since I had missed the date to register for a reserve league and I didn't want them sitting around. Everyone 20 years and younger went to my U20 team since that team has a season to play. Along with these moves I acquired another 18 year old ST named Valerio Lorezno Rosetti for 4.5M Euros from Siena, and while I like him a lot I'm not as high on him as I am on Ademllson. But they may well both get a look this year depending on how things shake out. My first campaign as Inter manager kicked off with a Europa League 3rd qualifying tie with Croatian side Hajduk. Easy pickings right? Shockingly they beat us 3-0 in Croatia and 1-0 at Giuseppe Meazza and just like that our Europa League campaign was over. I played my full starting 11 in both matches and they got crushed by a vastly inferior team. Needless to say nobody in Milan was very happy with me, for good reason. I'm up to the start of the Serie A season. Just in the first couple of months of the save I've lowered the wage bill from 1.47M Euros a week to 1.32M. My goal is to get it around 1M Euros per week within a year or so, assuming I survive that long as manager. Hopefully we'll fare better in a competition that matters more to us.... PS: As recommended in the OP in this thread I'm trying to buy the 50% stake in Marco Davide Faraoni from Udinese but they're refusing to sell. Anyone else have this problem? I'm wondering if talking up their manager to the press will soften their stance some?
