11.3 Patch Official Feedback Thread

1,492 posts in this topic

i've got tons of goals scored from direct freekicks using 11.2.1

and when will the patch be released for non steam users?

Your answer is in the OP.

309.8MB and 271MB seems quite a difference - are some people updating from 11.1?

Have you checked Steam to auto-update, and is it connected to Steam? (not offline)?

I haven't changed anything in Steam from default. I can't find an option to auto-update. Where is the option?

Also it has not been updated, when I start a new game only 11.1 and 11.2 are available.

A question, i know players get transferred, but have players ratings gone up? e.g Alex Chamberlain has been brilliant in real life so his FM ratings should rise?

Free-kicks are broken. If you've somehow scored "tons" of free-kicks, you are seriously in a minority. I have multiple saves showing that the total number of DFKs scored across all divisions and many countries and multiple seasons is around 1 per team per season on average. That's clearly broken.

In fact someone from SI even said they were broken in another thread, but that since the fault was due to the ball physics engine, it was too big a problem to fix in a patch and wouild need to wait til the next edition. I wasn't sure this was true, but apparently it was true. A shame.

I just found it, and FM11 IS set to 'keep this game up to date', but I am still not seeing any patch on Steam.

Right Click on Football Manager 2011 and select Properties. Then the updates tab, make sure it says "always keep this game up to date"

Steam downloads if you have it set up to do so. It's already downloaded in the background, so just need to fire up FM.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeese tell me current tactics has been fixed.

These should work fine in the latest patch but some changes may need to be made.

I just tried that and it worked. I guess the patch was released WHILE I was playing.

The freekick percentage is low but not as low as some think this was disccused a while back im sure its only 8-9% lower then real life stats, i know thats still abit but like i say its not as bad as people think

This is one of those errors unfortunately, as the transfer was made (moving clubs), it hasn't cleared down. New Game won't have this problem. :)

As raised by one of my members at FM-Base, the Irish leagues have some errors, Fingal have folded which isn't refelcted in the new patch, and some transfers are missing.

This occured after our database had been locked and therefore did not make it into Patch 3.

Just went out and bought fm2011 (is my new policy of waiting for third patch before buying)...Got it for £5 at my local store. Can't wait to see how Blackburn Rovers new owners Venkys are portrayed.

EDIT: By just, I mean yesterday...I wasn't refreshing the forum every two minutes and jumped out of my living room window the moment the announcement was made.....Honest!!

Just two small errors, that don't affect almost nothing, but José Eduardo Bettencourt, chairman of Sporting, should be unhappy (He has resigned) and Nuno Coelho hasn't been confirmed on a future transfer to Benfica (And Matic came for free, but that's alright)... But I'm happy with the patch, I will test some more...

Before anyone starts a long term save, it might be worth adding to the the opening post of this and the patch announcement thread that there will be an official xml file with changes made after datalock.

I'm not aware when they folded to be honest, if thats the case then obviously i don't expect it to be in the new patch. But according to this member, there are a few transfers, particularly related to Shelbourne (his favourite club) that haven't been reflected in the new patch.

For those issues the best place to post them is in the data issue sub-folder of the forums.

I was merrily playing Civilization when I glanced to see Steam had finished loading something for FM. I thought surely not, but upon loading FM found it had indeed loaded up the new patch. Like others the size on Steam says 271.3 & not 390.8, so I presume this is correct.

This was a short-term loan and these are not added into the database.

Bleh, no change to staff wages. :(

Having a £110.000 wage budget, and not being able to offer more than ~£500 in wages to coaches is a bit silly.

Spotted a major bug already, before I even started playing....

"- Fixed inactive teams not removing older players form the loan list."

It seems that the two mid-field players "o" and "r" keep swapping sides of the pitch.

Help, my game has gone all weird looking!

As you can see there seems to be two backgrounds competing here, and I can't see half the buttions I should, like the FM button.

I'm on the steam version.

Steam version: Fired up the game, all backgrounds were gone (using BaseDark) -the background was white, the white font unreadable. I closed the game and tried to restart it via Steam, got the message 'please try again later'. I closed Steam and manually tried to open the game and I got a message saying 'not a Win32 application'.

I've now quizzed him further and it appears most of those transfers were players jumping ship from Fingal. Sorry for jumping the gun, update seems good so far. Great work. Thanks from everyone at FM-Base. :)

I think someone has been a bit generous with Ipswich's flair rating. Highest in the league? Not a chance...

Depends what you mean.

If you mean Steam user, then no!

If you mean 'one of them' who hate Steam and refuse to use it, then yes!
