FM 2014 Pre-Release Beta - Official feedback thread.

Recommended Posts

As is the nature of a beta version this not yet a finished product and we are still making numerous improvements ready for the October 31st release. If you have any questions about the beta, check our our FAQ, here

Below are some of the key issues we are currently working on. Please do provide any further examples of these you come across, as well as any other issues affecting your game.

Our bug reporting guidelines can be found here, and our bug reporting forums here. Our QA team will be on hand to deal with any and every issue raised.

Known issues

- There is still work being done on the way AI managers and other staff pick teams, so in some cases they may not be making the most ideal team selection.

- There may be the occasional incident where the goalkeeper makes a poor attempt at a save.

- There may be the occasional incident where you see wild back passes.

- There is some balancing work on-going to the talking round of unhappy players.

- Sugar daddies may be a too generous with their cash input in some cases.

- There is still some balancing work to be done to the MLS Trade system.

- FMC Match Plans left to assistant may sub players earlier than specified.

PLEASE KEEP ANY FEEDBACK CONSTRUCTIVE.

Thanks.

Neil Brock linked to the bug report thread in his release post, but it has been deleted. Now I can not find the bug report section for the beta

Downloading it as we speak. Sort of a surprise that it's out really, not a single announcement to be seen.

Dinner? FM should take priority over food, water and oxygen

First impressions...

1. I need a new laptop

2. New match engine is satisfying

3. Going to enjoy this FM a lot more than fm13 (which i really enjoyed)

I agree, but I can't see my wife and 4-yr old daughter sharing the same viewpoint...

Place of Birth issue.

You cannot choose a place of birth outside of your nationalities locations.

My example: I was born in Hong Kong in 1992 when it was still under UK control. I am British, my parents are British and just happened to be living over there when I was born. I am unable to choose my place of birth as Hong Kong without choosing my primary nationality as Hong Kong (China PR).

With the amount of migrants around the world these days it is entirely possible that people would be born in a different country to that of their nationality. Even if it something as simple as a "Welsh" person being born in England for example. It seems it could be solved with drop down menus in the same fashion as Favourite Team is done.

Cheers SI!!

I didn't see anything on the official FM site (still don't see anything there), that's where I always check. I don't do any social media so I wouldn't know. To clarify, I meant no announcement prior to its release.

Well we're aware of some bugs within the beta of course, but yes, anything you folk can help us find will of course benefit everyone come official release.

I may not be understanding this correctly... But is the Beta out now?! Looks that way from the last few posts?

That's natural for a game as popular as this in the first hour of release sadly

Can we try and keep it to feedback on the game rather than arguing semantics about the term Beta etc...

Where do I set the User Data folder location?

I can only see the one for save games.

Hmm good point Nimic...

that location does say :

4suX5XhFY6szkmaH8WBy.png

which suggests everything goes into that location?

Something to bring up on the reporting issues section I imagine.
