Great Neil, you Always bring good news...a first question: is it possible to switch off the energy bar on the head of the players? in my opinion it's really disturbing and too much 'arcade'

Yes you can, both in the Preferences screen or from within the settings menu within the Match screen. Enjoy. :)

Since my previous topic was closed (although i dont agree with it) i would like to know which features which were not announced in facebook/twitter/youtube are actually in the game. Unfortunately, this comment will mix with other ones which are not beta-feature related

Any one had beta code from green man gaming?

Just called GMG, said they are in touch with the publisher and will release the codes as soon as possible.

You don't need one. It will automatically download. Steam is the main platform/seller. It is all these 3rd party sites where you need to them go to steam and enter a code for both the beta and the full game.

Would appreciate any feed back on MLS this version out of the gate. Each year it is unplayable until multiple patches and then still with issues. For first time I am holding off buying upon release .

Thanks

I just couldn't help myself...it's downloading. I went straight through Steam, £34.99 is not a bad price to pay and no faffing around.

The first thing I've done is gone into preferences and FM15 was 2.5 stars for "This PC's 3D Match Capabilities" while FM16 is 5 stars. Surely thats an error?

The game hasn't been fully benchmarked yet so it may suggest slightly different to the finished article. What make and model graphics card do you have?

To be honest, that's only an upper mid-range card, especially given it's a laptop card. I think last year it may have been benchmarked wrong and this year it's closer to the truth.

You can import the logo through the game.

As for the kits you can't import them directly in the game without putting them into your graphics folder with a config xml.

Am I completely missing it or is there no way to turn off player attribute masking? If there is please direct me to where it can be found :)

On the select leagues screen when starting a new game, near the bottom there's an 'Advanced Options' expanding button which gives you advanced options for starting a new save.

This screen is called 'New Game Overview'.

OK cheers Neil. I always lowered the graphics quality as a result last year. Going to look class now :cool:

FM15 tactics can be dropped in, but it doesn't seem to be picking up all the team instructions. (don't know if you're supposed to be able to do this?)

Nothing i will use but decided to give it a check anyway.

Looked into the create a club feature. Decided early on that i want nothing to do with it but i had to Alt+F4 in order to be able to get away from there. I couldn't find anywhere to get back to the main menu

or quit the game.
