Btw it's funny how moderators keep ninja deleting negative posts, hehe.

No, we delete non constructive posts. Negative is welcomed as long as it is done in a constructive way. See the house rules for more info! :)

Still finding that saving takes a long time. It gets hung up around the 75%-80% mark for a few minutes before finally breezing through to the end. About the same as the beta. Did optimization happen for saving?

NEGATIVES/SUGGESTIONS

Is there any chance at some point in FM games that a button that deselects the current selection is right next to the quick pick button instead of under the submenu next to quick pick?

Tactics Screen is still a big dissapointment for me. For years I have used that screen for team selection and now I am in my third season and have not once used that screen to select my squad.

Light Skin? I know there are skins onlne but I would have thought an official light skin should be an option.

Customizing menus is still a pain with columns not acting naturally when resizin/moving etc.

In the game when you use the quick sub option why is there not a list of positions (or at least the natural position) of the players on the subs bench?

Side Bar should be collapsable and customizable

Scouting - The first page that opens up is all known players. Maybe it should be shortlist first. This way when a large pool of players is collected it doesn't take too long to load up the scouting area

POSITIVES

Start with the obvious. Its a new FM, latest squads etc

Game engine graphics look great, as well as scenery/stadiums etc... match day experiemce seems much more involving. There are always going to be tweaks needed but over the past few editions of fm I feel at least the match engine and graphics have been moving in the right direction (unlike the team selection)

UI, As mentioned before team selection non collapsable/customizable sidebar and lack of a light skin aside, I am all for the new UI and am very happy with the layout

There are plenty more positives I mean I love this franchise and I lets be honest it is much easier to notice the things you dont like. I love the implementation of a RPG style element with manager style/courses/training involvement. I think this is an area that can be expanded over the next few editions.

The new attribute range. Fantastic.

Anyway good job guys.

Also:

The last few years I figured out a work around of not using Steam by locating the actual fm.exe file in my computer and fixing that link to my taskbar (I get an annoying message asking if my Mac will allow it to use my computer, can't change it no matter what).

This years is different. The file won't open and I have to go through Steam.

Has it just been a fluke until now or has something changed?

Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

Downloaded a couple of tactics for FM15 put them in the tactics folder and keep getting "This file could not be imported"

they show in Archived tactics on the tactics screen.

9/10 of those issues can be solved by a new skin, which is pretty good news for you

I'm using a user skin which does solve 1 or 2, but not 9/10, definitely not.

Look at the top of the menu rather than inside 'Archived', should be listed there.

After updatie the game is sometimes very slow, especially in player and staff searching. I've got 3,5 star game speed.

Tried to clear cache, deleted preferences folder and verify files on steam. Didnt help

Have you actually purchased it yet then?

If yes, it might be because you have it disabled on your save (it was an option when you made the save)

I tried a couple of times but got the error message, waited a little while then went back to try and it just says Already Purchased

Just double checked and on my save it says In-Game Editor Allowed - Yes

Don't know if this is a known issue and its only a minor annoyance but, when a goal is scored and after the replay, some of my widgets are opened (I keep a few on screen but always minimised except for quick reference). Its always random which ones and sometimes its none. Anyone else have this?

Just noticed the same.

yes my widgets also open after replays

Can you try reloading the skin in Preferences and see if that works please?

normal FM

Try saving your current tactic and see if the tactic then appears in the menu at the top.

scouting screen takes at least 30 seconds to load when i make changes to filters

Depending on the complexity of your player search filter, it could take longer as it is checking every player meets the criteria. What are you trying to use?

And reloading the skin (with skin cache unticked) doesn't work?

Hmm only thing i can suggest is start a new game again and see if it turns up in a new game?

even just adjusting sorting features for everyone in the database, or just 300 players takes 30 secs+, whatever i do, even going to the scouting screen takes ages +going back to it from a player profile

What are your pc specs Harold ? and is this a new save or one you're quite far into?

Nope not at all.

I've been playing around with different instructions tho, tried no offside trap and no tighter marking, but Get Stuck In instead and many others, nothing worked.

Hmm. Odd then! Not really seen that behaviour without the closing down instructions. Well, the awful marking on crosses happens from time to time, but I think that's actually WAD. Sometimes marking is just terrible in r/l, too. Low concentration + low marking can lead to that.

Would you happen to have a large shortlist or lots of scout reports?

Doesn't having scout reports of a lot of players say 400+ cause slowdown in player search? Sure I seen it mentioned.

I can no longer load tactics. When I try to import a tactic, the files that are *.tac don't show up. When I create a tactic and save it, it's saved as *.fmf. I tried renaming the tactics I had as .fmf, but still no dice.

Did I miss something?

If they are in your Tactics folder they will show up as archived. It threw me off at first aswell

also if they still aren't showing up then make sure there are no spaces in the title that can always throw off some file searches

I'll try that, but why would it suddenly drastically change from beta update to final?

EDIT: And still, nothing. The only tactics that show up are ones I just manually created after the update.

Could possibly be worth posting in the tech issues forum, we'll be able to advise better there.

This is what I find to be a workaround for the issue (which we've discovered and will investigate):

- Go to Manage Tactics in your Tactics Menu

- Import a Tactic.

- Save your current Tactic

- The Imported Tactic should now appear at the top of the menu

- This is the case for FM & FMC.

Do let us know in the bug forum if you have any further issues.

My end of match team talk options were akin to "Congratulate team on a comeback to draw the match" after we surrendered a late equalizer.

Cut out the swearing please, completely unnecessary. We are still looking into this and why this is the case for some people.

Best to try again later - perhaps when resetting your network connection.

Not sure if this is the right place to post it but this has happened for three straight matches now - I've been going up against teams that are far superior to mine in the air so I've set the corner kicks to be short and in the wizard I always have a player offering the short option. Not a single time has my player (Gerrard, so no mug) taken it short. Is there something I'm missing here or could this be a possible bug?

So what are people's overall impressions? Is FM15 a worthy purchase? I'm a bit concerned because the UI changes look iffy to me and I've never seen an iteration of FM so many mediocre reviews before.
