Can anyone help with this? I know it may seem minor but it's exactly the sort of irritant that will really ruin the game for me. Seems such a stupid reason to lose an 8-season save.

Edit: to be a bit clearer about the issue, I've got to the news item where I have to submit my squad numbers for the season. I go to the squad numbers screen, click on the drop-down where normally you assign a number, and nothing comes up. I can clear all, and then auto-assign (at which point I still can't see any numbers on the drop-down thing on the left of the player name, but players do have numbers on their profile screens).

Very annoying and inexplicable.

Could you open a new thread about this in the Bugs Forum - http://community.sigames.com/forumdisplay.php/369-All-Other-Issues

If you could upload a save game where this is happening onto our FTP too and someone will have a look into it. Thanks.

Thanks for all your hard work!

im liking the new match engine

it finally feels as fluid to watch and as realistic to watch as fm13 ended up

passing is much improved and a few of the little niggly things have now stopped ... but .....

im now conceding quite a few goals , which im sure is just going to be a tweak here or there ... anyone any ideas ??

also , im now conceding like stink on corners yet im not really able to score corners myself ... which is starting to drain me , especially when my board are " concerned about the lack of goals from set pieces "

again , anyone any ideas ??

It will be difficult for anyone to give you advice when you've not given in information except thatched you're conceding a lot. Best to ask in the tactics forum. Remember to post a screenshot of your tactic.

Actually, if you don't want to create a thread, maybe just read these two excellent posts stickied in the tactics forum:

Thanks - as it happens, I've just discovered the source of the issue! I use a custom view on the squad select screen, which apparently was interfering with the squad select screen (not the first issue I've had with custom views, for what it's worth).

I switched the view back to the General Info one and it works fine again. What a relief!

Regarding scaling, there is still scaling in the 3D ME, but it is not as pronounced as it was just after the release of the game. Back then people complained that short players looked fat and tall players were too skinny, so that was toned down a little. As I've said, we're working on a new system currently.

The current ME actually has far fewer dribbles past opponents per game than the one released with the last patch, so despite improving dribbling tendencies we feel wide play is now much more realistic with fewer aimless runs into dead ends.

If you find that you are being taken to external website when playing the 3D match engine, you are probably clicking the linked ad-hoardings by mistake. It is possible to disable this in the preferences.

Can't believe it STILL hasn't been fixed that players do not need to make 10 appearances in the EPL to get a winner's medal. From the start of last season you've only needed to be named in the squad for one. It's a minor thing admittedly, but it frustrates me that if I've played a 17 year old 8 times they don't get acknowledged. It's also annoying that they have to have made those 10 appearances before you actually clinch the title and not simply before the end of the season as it should be.

Also, is anyone else experiencing an insane number of offsides?

Offsides are a bit higher than real life numbers, it's something we're aware of. Though it shouldn't be 'insanely' high.

Fair enough. I'd just come out of that game with 13 offsides (Inzaghi on a bad day!), including a disallowed goal from an onside player so was a bit frustrated. As long as it's not just me lol.

Not really the place to ask this, but I need some insight.

A friend once told me that loading FM and the FM editor at the same time could damage the game. Is this true?

Sometimes a player with poor movement playing in a role on the shoulder (e.g. poacher) may be offside slightly more often, something to watch out for if you've got one bloke straying offside a fair amount. :)

Is this the last and final patch, or will there be more?

I can`t play the game until I know there is no other choice in future patches :p

It was mostly my AF player, but he should have really good movement going by his stats unless there's something hidden. Anyway, cheers for the help.

Tony or someone else from SI. I've asked kinda many times about the dribbling and never got an answer, so here it is again:

I read the update list and really don't get it why did you apparently increased the effectivity of dribbling? There were obvious evidence available that players already did have way too many succesful dribbles per game compared to real life and now you have increased the effect... Why is that?

IMO dribbling really shouldn't be the most effective attacking tool in the game. You've seen it with Chelsea IRL how 'easy' it is to tactically stop dribbling if team relies too much on one player's (Hazard) ability to run with ball. Just by making the player not to receive the ball in good amount of speed makes it difficult or even impossible to dribble through 2 players and also to leave that one skinned player to bite the dust.

Oh, cheers and sorry about not noticing that. :o Good news for us who enjoy defending and more football-like experience when viewing the engine, simply more realistic.

I'm gonna start a new game without the winter transfers. I can't seem to sign any high profile players at all due to them not wanting to negotiate with me, which I could previously buy before the patch without a problem... I'm sure it's their managers that needs to be tweaked. They are all dreaming to play for Man City but cba to discuss contracts.

Hi pugalu, would you mind starting a thread in the Transfers/Contracts and Responsibilities forum outlining your problem? (That's if you haven't already)

Is it the players/agents or the clubs who won't negotiate?

If you could supply examples of the players you're struggling to sign and, if possible, upload your save game so we can have a look at it. Details on how to upload your save game can be found here.

Cheers, Julius.

Is there a way to get my edited data to run in the new upgrade please anyone? I can carry on my old save without a problem but when I try to start a new save it will only allow the default or 14.3 data...

Any ideas?

The file is only compatible with the 14.0 database. You'll need to make a new file for 14.3

Oh I see, so I'll have to re-edit and then load back in to FM ?

Or maybe it will work if I verify cache again in Steam?

Not quite. You'll need to load the editor, load the 14.3 database, make the changes you need, save it and then load that file into FM.

Just reposting because I think it got lost in the mix. Am I right to assume that this didn't make the cut for fixes?

I've still noticed an issue with not all available jobs actually making their way to the job centre. I have to find the specific club and apply for the available job from their club page. This was an issue that had been raised by myself and others in the bugs forum and I was told it was a "known issue."

http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/384170-Not-all-available-jobs-showing-up-in-the-job-centre

Definitely an issue for those who enjoy journeyman saves and don't want to hunt through 100s of individuals club pages to see if they're available or not.

Anyone else seeing stupid freekicks flying in. I've only played three games since the update and had two freekicks from near the halfway line go directly in (both against me). First one bounced over the keeper, second just went right in the top corner!

In my first game after the update playing as Luton in the Conference & my opponent has a player sent off for 2 dives in the first half an hour! I hope this doesn't become a regular theme and is a bizarre one-off!

Anybody having a problem viewing player histories? Mines either do not appear or all come up as Algeria Pro League?

That sounds like your history is corrupted - are you on PC or Mac? If you're on PC, do you have any kind of anti-virus installed? Has it scanned your system at any point when the game is running?

I start losing almost every game after update. Conceding from crosses and wingers mostly. Also basically a any striker with attack duty is almost more often offside than onside. Same for ai

Bookings are really out of control and it started to **** me off.

That looks odd.

Playing in the EPL and after 15 games (coincidentally), top yellows are West Ham with 28.

10 games from the patch, ME seems to be truly improved.

Last games I had three 0-0 and a couple of clean sheets, never happened before.

Bad clearance from corners and near post goals are gone, but I can see that every opponent is using zonal marking in corners, why?

I've only ever played in Serie A and the bookings have always been quite high. I don't think it's anything to do with the patch. Also, I know some refs have different personalities, but do refs differ in-game from country to country? If they do, then surely holding up an English league next to Serie A isn't going to prove much other than you get more bookings in Serie A?

Here's a link to Serie A and it looks as if FM is a lot more lenient than the real thing.

Could somebody tell me if the problem with strikers not scoring has been fixed?

I tried multiple teams with multiple tactics, some mine some created by others and none of my strikers regardless of skill and price tag could consistently hit the target.
