Um, i have a friendly match against my reserves but there aren't enough players to submit a team and i cant cancel the match? What can i do?

One of the things that annoys me is that when there is a highlight, and I make a sub in it (usually the beginning), and it goes out for a throw-in, or goal kick, my subs don't come on as the highlight wants to continue it. I just had that happen, I was trying to bring off Collins because he was having a bad game, Collins loses a header to Rooney (!?) and it falls for Park. Inability to tackles leads to a square and Rooney tapping it, empty goal, for scum's 4th, and I ended up losing 4-3. And then Dunne comes on. Great. The sub didn't come on just when I needed him, and I cant cancel it. It happened in 11.2, but I haven't noticed it in 11.1 or 11.0.

I think you know the answer to that.

Not sure why no hotfix = closed thread though?

I think you know the answer to that.

and you should renamed this thread to "FM12 Official Suggestion Thread"

I must be in the minority but I don't encounter any bugs mentioned in this thread :s

I just need to get better at the game as the mighty Toon are getting decimated in the league lol but thats deffo me

TV games seem normal to me and I read about that before downloading the patch so I payed extra attention!

Now back to getting Newcastle relegated! :(

Mike Ashley gave me 11m transfer funds I think thats deffo a bug!I must have his kind hearted twin in charge!So far so good SI :)

I don't know whether this is related to the patch but the 3d game performance star system seems to be broken!Says my comp is 1 star?But it runs fine so not a game breaker just a bit annoying.

well they would have an extra 35m after selling carroll so the fact that hes only giving you 11m to spend doesn't seem so generous. :)

I do enjoy the game but the latest stat bug has just annoyed me more than anything else, it is a glaringly obvious bug that someone should have picked up on more than one occasion, in any other industry if you bought a product which had any kind of defect, show stopping or not you would expect this to be dealt with, instead you are told don't worry it will be fixed in the next version. Well thats alright then let me give you my card details now so you can take another £30 out of my bank.

I have worked in the games industry a few years ago and I appreciate that the working hours are long and that the demands for perfection are high but that is no excuse for lazy coding, using a 4 or 5 year old engine to just bolt new modules on year after year is not the best way to work and every year you will come up against more and more problems until this is readdressed. I have bought CM/FM from the very start but my patience are starting to wear thin.

It is purely cosmetic as the missing stats get included in the overall appearances, goals, average rating etc and it seems to disappear in season 2 from what I have read. Don't know why people are making such a huge issue about it personally as it does not annoy me in the slightest.

People have a right to voice thier concerns if they feel frustrated by something regardless of whether it is cosmetic or not it just highlights to me that SI have become lazy over the last few years. This I'm sure you will disagree with and I expect nothing less, however it is my opinion and as I have experience in this industry I feel that I can justify what I'm saying.

I wonder how many people will play until season 2 to find out whether the stats bug goes away on its own or not.

Pretty sure many many people will have played beyond season 2.

Never said people don't have a right to voice their concerns but in my opinion it's been way over the top to call that particular bug game breaking.

It certainly isn't game breaking from my point of view, my point is though (and this is the bit that you are missing) is that it is lazy and unacceptable from SI to just say that it will be fixed by FM12, there is a certain amount of arrogance about the whole process, in that they know there are problems, but hey people will still buy from us next year.

Probably better discussed elsewhere...but one thing the 11.3 patch HAS done is completely knackered MLS to the point where it really CAN'T be played in a reasonable manner...

-Americans are incorrectly counted as foreigners (the first 5 shouldn't be considered foreign) for Toronto FC leaving you with barely enough players to make a squad at the start

-2 AA (i.e. academy) players required in the squad registration, yet none being created EVER, so it's actually impossible to maintain a full squad and keep within the registration rules

-players signing for near minimum contracts...Landon Donovan can be renewed at $24K/year after a couple seasons and everyone is WAY under salary cap as no players seem to want money

but at least we got scouts now!

I know there's no hotfix or update coming here, but is there some kind of workaround for the first two issues, as those really make it near impossible to play MLS?

If there is no way to work around it, can anyone tell me how to get back to 11.2 on steam? MLS wasn't perfect then, but it was more playable than now...especially if you want to manage in Toronto

Yeah I had the same and again I thought it had been fixed, im wondering whether they dont class those players travelling back from internationals as being away on international duty or something

It's only 4 players and only 2 of them are in your first 11 and since you have a pretty big squad, to me it doesn't seem worth it to cancel a round of fixtures. I'm not sure if League 1 / 2 take breaks for the international break, I don't believe they do anyway

Yes they do, Tranmeres game against Sheff Wed has been moved IRL as Sheff Wed have two players on international duty

http://www.tranmererovers.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10365~2314708,00.html

Interesting - was that done at the request of Sheffield Wednesday? Perhaps the game should allow a manager to make a similar request. I think this used to be an option in the game some years ago.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, and can't be bothered to read through 13 pages of post 11.3 feedback to check.

The managerial reputation problem still exists.

I've only been in charge of Newcastle for a few matches, and already I'm looking set to take over from Pep Guardiola in Spain, according to the media!

Very strange.

I am set up as an ex-Professional Footballer, with dual nationality (English / French).

Therefore if anything you'd expect me to get offered jobs more commonly in France.

Why Spain? And why such a big club as Barcelona when I've only managed a few games?

2 minutes later: Now both Athletico Madrid and Valencia are considering me.

I've done nothing in the game yet! I've won nothing, I've managed a total of 25 games, of which I've won 12!

Hardly 'special one' level, is it?

Pretty big squad? I have no reserves and of those not picked, -5- are kids... prospects? perhaps for the level... of the others, both Green and Diaw are just back from injury, "severely lacking match fitness" and Norbert was a mistake... he has low stamina and can't finish a full 90 :p

So that leaves me with Siberie, who I've just dropped as he is playing like a girl... (and a not a very good one at that!)

Of the four internationals, 3 would have been playing and the fourth on the bench Silva is new and a Hot Prospect, Norwood is my best centre-mid but new so still getting used to the team and obviously Bouzanis is my keeper. Pierre is also a prospect but not on the same level as Silva, and it would take an epic fail for me to drop Iriekpen or Mee for any length of time...

Obviously, as a result of the internationals I have no reserve keeper. I *could* put Connor on the bench, but as he is just returning from an 8 month layoff (and 3 weeks from resuming full-training) it's not a sensible choice. I have not got a reserve or youth keeper that is eligible to bench-warm and I'm not offered a grey as Connor is orange...

(It matters not as I won the match, but 4 internationals should equal postponement or at least the opportunity to ask for it to be re-arranged!)

If that's what happens IRL, then absolutely yes the game should reflect that.

So i just played the second leg of the league cup semi after the first leg ended 2-2, i was at home to west brom first leg. So second leg ends after 90 minutes at 1-1 meaning west brom lead on away goals so i think im out but then extra time starts which i thought was weird being as it was 3-3 on aggregate and west brom lead on away goals still, even weirder extra time ends still at 3-3 and was not followed by penalties? This has to be a bug right?

has anyone else had this problem or is it just me

I started up a new game with the Jan Transfer (it worked) first time, but now when I start a new game every club has re-gens, managers, players & staff members and I'm still in the first season, so I uninstalled FM11 from my MAC and reinstalled it so I had no updates and it still does it :/ is my FM11 broken and are SI working on an update for it and please say I'm not the only one who has this problem :(

Do you mean there are no real players/staff at all?

If so check you haven't got the use fake or don't use real players option ticked when you create a save.

One thing I've noticed with the new patch is that it appears to have missed lots of transfers. But when you go into the data editor they've already been done but for some reason do not appear when you start a new game. An example of this is Morten Rasmussen's loan from Celtic to AaB. Anyone else having this issue?

Is it a future transfer set for a specific date or is the loan already taking place from the season start date?

Only downer with this patch is I still can't get an international job. Not even applying for the youth sides.

I have been approached by other clubs wanting to poach me though.

Rasmussen's loan has a start date of 03/02/2011 but there are other loans that have the same date or just before and appear when you start a new game - it just seems to affect some of them. I also noticed that Hinkel's injury doesn't appear when you start a new game but this has also been added with the patch.

This is the last FM I will ever buy. FM2011 has been an unenjoyable (and at times unplayable) experience from start to finish. SI should be ashamed of themselves. Absurd AI, penalties in every game, own goals galore and a ridiculous number of serious injuries. Possibly THE WORST CM/FM ever released. Why on earth don't they get a solid game out every 2 years and just release an update for those who want it inbetween? Oh, I know why, because there are too many kids to nick £30 from once a year! I shall be returning my FM2011.

this has probally already been answered somewhere in the 13 pages.

I know a save game from 11.2 works for 11.3 and january transfers are not included in that save but are the players attributes such as Carrolls change in the 11.2 save? And all the other fixes?

You seem to be in a very small minority when suggesting FM11 is the "Worst Ever"

Perhaps rather than throwing your toys out of the pram you should take some time to understand what are actual bugs and what is simply a problem with the way you play/approach the game.

He was being negative i'll give you that. But the underly problem remains. It is march before the game is playable nowadays( check out the tv money bug ). I love to see how many copies SI sell around feb-march.

Not really, loads of people have been playing it since release quite happily.

What you see on the forum is a minority of people who in a lot of cases make mountains out of molehills.

Personally I feel FM10 was more playable on release but Miles posted the other week that FM11 had less bugs in number than any previous version. I think in general even though the number of bugs was less there were a few that were rather annoying to workaround.

At the end of the day a game with three patches/updates behind it should always be better than the release version and I'm sure lots of people wait for the final version to buy/play it.

Not sure i would read too much into the less bugs in FM11 thing. First of all it still resulted in the same number of patches! :). Second you only need 1 game breaking bug to cause a problem :)
