11.3 Patch Official Feedback Thread

1,492 posts in this topic

for the transfer system is improved, i can actually loan out good players and sell them now, and the match engine seems to be going well for me at the moment, a lot less corner goals going in and 40 yard shots going in.

why did someone "make 8000" changes then?!?!?

They didn't make 8000 changes on things that happened before the transfer window. They made 10 changes on things before the transfer window, apparently, as I have just asked that question. Which is still 10 too many, but then 1 transfer could equal 10 changes itself, as you'd need to change the club from one to the other, a joining date, and the contract information.

All that's been said on the matter has been said. As Neil posted above, please do not discuss this any further in this thread, as this is for 11.3 feedback.

Any data queries should be lodged in the data forum.

Thanks .

You said " go to data issues forum , copy the letters above but nothing will be change. " ok , i m going immediately...

Thanks too you mate :)

Have you tried closing Steam and re-opening it? Also I'd suggest verifying your game cache as described below:

-Load Steam

-From the My Games tab, right-click on FM2011 and select Properties from the menu.

-Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.

-Steam will verify the game cache files (GCF's) - this process may take several minutes.

-Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.

Let me know how you get on, thanks.

it says 27 files failed to validate and will be reacquired?

Filtering for players seems to be broken now, tried doing various filters, eg only Attacking Midfielder Left & it shows players in every position, then tried adding pace stamina & crossing & only AML's showed up whcih seemed fixed, but i had it set at "At Least" 14 crossing & players with under that were showing up.

Is there any difference between Steam and Boxed version updates. Huntelaar has 18 finishing in my game, but it is 20 in my friend's game. What may cause that difference?

Is it something because of the Verify? I did not click that button before creating a new game.

Have you tried to install the patch with the game running by any chance? The game should not be running when you install the patch. Have you got everything installed in the default location as well?

Quick question on Loans in the new patch.

In previous games / patches, as a Championship club it was always easy to sign players (who are listed as available for loan) from Premier League clubs without having to pay an initial fee. I understand that loaning between Permiership clubs will attract a fee, but is it deliberate that Championship clubs should be being asked to pay ?

I'm Leeds and I've just tried to sign Jordan Mutch from Birmingham. He's listed for loan, but Birmingham want 180k. Same goes with Jose Baxter at Everton, he's also listed for loan and Everton also want 180k.

Is this correct ?

EDIT: Add Jordan Spence (West Ham want 150k) & Marc Crosas (Celtic want 200k)

Players of reasonable/proven ability (for example Henri Lansbury) will command a loan-fee, that is correct.

No, there are absolutely no plans whatsoever to release a hotfix patch at this time. Cheers.

Can you try the patch installer again but actually locate the game when the installer gets to that stage, it should be in Applications > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2011

Loan fees are common between Prem and Championship clubs

I'd advise shutting down the computer and turning it back on again to start from scratch

Then after you've logged on just double click on the patch you have downloaded and click 'update'. Don't do anything before double clicking on the patch, this should ensure no files are open and then the patch can install correctly

I got it working finally. ;);)

Yes - it's what happens in real life too.

So it's a deliberate change from previous versions then ?

It's basically every loan, not just players of proven ability. I've tried two players from the lower leagues (AFC Wimbledon & Tranmere) and they're also wanting fee's. Please don't take this as a "moan", but would you be able to explain why it's changed in this patch?. Previously no fees we're expected between Championship & Premier League teams for players listed as available for loan...

I did the Verify and created a new game, still its 18 :) Also attributes of Carroll is different. Any comments?

It will be down to how valuable that player is to that club, and your own club's stature in the game.

It is what happens in real life as Miles said, I don't see a problem with this either.

It was a change made for FM11, based on the info we were given by agents and other people in the football world. It was wrong in previous games, as we were unaware it was the norm.

true, but should it also happen when the lower league club is a feeder team? My parent club suddenly started asking for a fee and full wages paid when I make loan proposals for youngsters in their reserves, who are listed for loan. Before the patch I could loan such players from my parent club for free...

Remember these players are listed on the loan market, so the clubs are actively encouraging a loan move. I'm not suggesting there's a "reality" issue, just curious as to why it seems to have changed so drastically.

I can only assume it's linked to my clubs reputation, do you know if Leeds had an increase in reputation from 11.2.1 to 11.3 ?

EDIT: Seen Miles' answer, the only assumption I've got left then is the club one...Is it true ?

I believe this may have been metioned but the tab key does not work in the editor since I patched to 11.3 this evening. This is annoying, to say the least.
