Official Football Manager 2015 Pre Release Beta Feedback Thread - Update 15.0.3

Recommended Posts

Played 22 games all free-kicks are either goals or deflected by gks in front of the goal and pounced i have yet to see other animation playing with extended highlights and this is causing games to have an av of 4 goals per game .

Gk are stil poor especially with the reflexes why they use the feet on a narrow angle shot instead of the body and this again makes for more goals .

Crossing the ball into the box always get a pingpong effect and ussualy goals , same with corners the defenders are even more atrocious than last patch.

I am crossing my fingers for the 0 day patch .

P.S The menus and buttons are slow as hell

I've just had a 23 degree game in December in sunny Boston! Would you need a .pkm for this?

If that is 23 degrees Fahrenheit, then I see nothing wrong. The average December temperature in Boston in 2013 is 34 degrees F. If that is celcius, which would make in 74 degrees fahrenheit, then ya it may be a bit off.

@temperature queries

I guess that just needs an editor tweak, it's probably pulling the wrong data out from somewhere (maybe the seasons are mixed up)

or maybe you've just got REALLY lucky (and got the 1% chance of a hot day)

Been noticing that keepers would get up and save the first shot. but they take so long to recover, that its easy for a striker to come and simply tap in the rebound. and many times, would class players like reus, sanchez take ridiculously off target shots.

Played four matches since the newest update. ME is by far the most realistic I've ever seen from FM. Incredible job SI. Results have been 0-1, 2-1, 1-0, 1-1 with Tottenham. It's actually felt like real football. If anything I'm actually having a hard time scoring now. Keep up the great work, you guys have done a phenomenal job with FM15.

Enjoying the Beta, but finding it easier than in past versions of the game, playing as Liverpool and 2nd in EPL in 1st season and have just put out Real Madrid to make the CL quarter

final ! Little gripe in that I don't seem to be able to see the touchline in 3D match mode (using elevated view).

The lack of response from mods regarding the tactic screen is quite disappointing.

Still awaiting a reply in to why it was changed from quite frankly the perfect one in FM2014. Everything in one place. Didn't have to look at the other side of the screen to select roles etc.

Just had a really bizarre piece of defending from an opposition free kick. The free kick was for the opposition about 40 yards out on the right. Just before its about to be taken almost all of my players suddenly rush upfield leaving Rafael to defend against five Crystal Palace players. And when I say rush upfield I mean they were halfway to the centre circle when the free kick was taken. My mouse was in serious danger of being flung across the room!! What made it a little better was that by some miracle Rafael won the ball in the air and cleared!!!

Will post to bugs forum.

You've left your feedback in the thread. You don't like it, that's fine. Mods don't work for SI so we can't answer for them. They're very busy with release on Friday and if someone can/wants to answer, they will. Can you drop it now, please?

Edit: I'll say this much, there would have been reasons for them changing things. They wouldn't just change something just because they can. They take the feedback onboard, so who knows?

Have been playing this solid from the first release. I'm loving the new ball physics. Goal kicks now are so realistic. The ball just floats and holds up in the air. The little outside of the boot touches, for example are so little in the whole context of the game but add so much to the match engine. It is by far the most polished M.E for a long, long time and I am glad that SI have taken criticism on board from FM14 and changed things.

Tactics screen I really dislike. On a previous release many years ago, Miles said that the company had done some GUI studies on the number of mouse clicks to complete a certain task and also general studies of how people play the game - specifically in terms of how easy the user found buttons and menu's on the screen. I wonder if it is worth SI doing the same to a brand new user and compare the difference between FM12/13/14 and FM15 tactics screens side by side?

Just a quick observation and suggestion on the subscribed news: I'm currently subscribing to match summaries from another league. I get a matchday preview which mentions the biggest game in the league that day and a list of fixtures. The following day/evening I get a matchday review with a very brief roundup of the biggest game of the day but there's no actual list of results. Wouldn't it make sense just to include a list of matchday results here as the preview had?

Would make it far easier to follow different subscribed leagues at a glance. Presumably this wouldn't be hard to implement either.

You didn't specify buddy. But ya, 23c/74f is pretty darn high for December in Boston.

We had 20°C on Christmas Eve last year in southern (!) Germany.

The mods aren't required to respond really are they, they just 'mod' these forums. I do get your point though, it is without doubt the biggest backwards step in the game and I can;t see the thinking behind it. It's a strange decision from SI as it's not just something that needed improvement and has been left untouched, it's essentially been made significantly worse.

Odd really.

I know nothing about coding or gaming, but I'd imagine to re-hash the tactics screen at this late stage is a bigger job, not a tweak? I'd be surprised if it's changed just yet, if at all.

I do miss quick access to my 'shortlist', it's one of my most used screens.

I also miss seeing my available transfer/wage budget remaining when I open the player search and shortlist screens.

Had an evening on the new update last night, and have to say, very happy with it. I'm not one to go through the ME with a fine-toothed comb to spot the tiniest of mistakes, so by my reckoning it's playing better than before, but most importantly, it's now smooth as silk. The action was a little jerky at times in the first beta incarnation, but after yesterday's update, I can put it on the top detail settings and still have absolutely no stutter or slowdown. Good job on that one.

Excellent new patch and this FM is shaping up to be very good. Having some issues with corners tough, I feel I'm scoring too much and conceding too much (all settings left at default.)

Hi, forgive me for not reading the Whole thread, I've got a question: why we cannot search anymore a player using non-attributes criteria? I can't find how you set other search criteria (height, preferred foot, weight, age, contract status, ecc.)...

I have had an issue with my GK ratings. I think it has been mentioned before but couldn't find where.

Just played as Hyde and won 5-1 at home to Stockport. At the break the score was 2-1 to us, the Stockport goal was a cross headed in at the back post, no fault to the keeper at all. Come full time my keeper ends with a 0.1 rating and looking closer apparently he made 181 mistakes during the game. :confused:

Could you upload a .pkm to the Bug Report that StormenDK has linked please? Seems to be that single errors are being "counted" multiple times, driving the ratings down.

A guide as to how to upload .pkms is here:

Was this just for one game? As the record high for Boston in December is 24c so it could just be a freak event.

4 Players are injured in the same frendly match?

Sounds like rotten luck, unless the fitness/match fitness of the players was poor.

Maybe like 10 games played and compared to the previous update I've noticed these:

- I'm actually having more scoring chances per game and seem to be able to score 3-4 goals per games with decent performances.

- Corner kicks now much much more dangerous which is a bad thing. Really enjoyed that they weren't that effective previously.

- Wingers' dribbling improved... Once again it is a bad thing as you can now rely even more on your wide play to get you the wins.

- Defending generally... hard to say. In midfield it doesn't work and you really rarely see good dispossessions from midfielders but this has been the case for years. Those defensive minded midfielders just aren't respected enough in these games.

- Crosses are still mightily threatening and you are able to get serious amount of crosses in as the wideplay is like open highway, especially full-backs are always unmarked and able to get free crosses in.

I don't know generally. Didn't make that big difference in gameplay. I'm still enjoying it quite a lot but was really expecting it to be harder for me to break the AI defences after the update but that really isn't the case.

Hi. I have this player and he is properly world class. I've had him 7 seasons and every season except his first he averaged above 7. The thing I find very very odd is, not once in his 7 seasons was there the slightest interest from a bigger club. Very weird as he is 10 times better than anyone else in my average squad that there has been no interest in him at all in 7 seasons.

Wondering if it is a problem or what causes another club to become interested? I'm delighted nobody wants him but I just find it odd. Especially since I have awful finances so maybe I will need to sell eventually. 2014-11-04_00001_zpsda123382.jpg"]2014-11-04_00001_zpsda123382.jpg[/url]

Anyone else find that Full backs do absolutely nothing defensively?

Mine seem to want to be extra centre backs, they leave the opposition wingers completely alone in space but then when the wingers get the ball, they charge towards them but never get close before the winger crosses it....usually to the other winger on the far side who is also completely un-marked ofcourse and bangs it in! My full backs may as well not exist, they never get close to anything or anyone! Why can;t they mark wingers? they always double up on the strikers with my centre backs but then run out wide when the wingers get it but always too slow to get to them in time and are thus cut out of the game! Is it just me?? anyone else?

I don't know, but I feel like the ME has become worse than before. I didn't have any problems with 15.0.2. Now it seems I'm conceding goals left and right. Every corner is a goal, every long shot is a goal, I see own goals, stupid defeding etc. Last game I was behind 5-0 at HT against a smaller club and I played with a conservative approach. I'll wait for the next patch.

It depends on their mentality setting, I have mine on attack and that's what they'll do, hoping my DM covers for them. A support setting makes them think twice before bombing forward and a defend setting is just that, they'll sit tight and defend.

I agree this happens a lot.

If play is building on the left flank, your full back on the opposing flank is drawn into the penalty area to help out. Not always a bad thing & i have observed this behaviour in real games.

If your full back observes play building on the opposite flank, identifies there is an overload in the penalty area he has to make a decision to get involved in that or not so i wouldn't say this is a cut & dried situation where the ME gets it wrong.

However if play is quickly switched to the opposite flank you are exposed, funnily enough the FB that was central quickly makes up ground to be in close proximity to the attacking wide player but generally just stands off and allows him to cross. This is perhaps more of a problem.

I can not play FM until I come home from school, but I have a question:

I was not able to rent a players in my league (the Dutch league) in FMC, because the option was not there. But I could hire players from all the other leagues. So is that also fixed? Because i cant see it on the list.

Oviedo in Spanish Segunda. I have a superior material for the league I know but it still feels a bit cheap at times how we win the games. Would win even bigger if my players would score some from half chances also...
