Football Manager 2016 - Official Beta Feedback

Recommended Posts

+1

Game has slowed considerably since the update.

Win10 64bit i7-4790 16gb RAM

If people could try and post in that bug thread so we can keep all the info in once place that'd be great. This thread is more for feedback, rather than bugs. :)

Two crashes in 5 minutes after installing the update 10 mins ago.

Edit: 3 times in 10 min

Edit: 4 times! What on earth is going on? The smallest update imaginable is corrupting the game. I can only agree with the concerns about micro-freezes too.

Sigh, I enjoyed my save so much..

Anyone else having problems with the fans always thinking the team fielded is weakened, even when it seems to be the best players by a large margin, I put on the pitch?

I have this too, in post match conferences I am always asked about it. Only started now in my 6th season when I have 2 good players in every position. I think maybe some of the players I have on my bench are technically 'the best' but aren't starters because they only are the best in very specific roles

Just finished first season.

Bournemouth stayed up with only 28 points.

39 points which can often get you relegated was good enough for 13th.

If this pattern is repeated by other users might it suggest the top teams are relatively too strong and the lesser teams relatively too weak?

P.S. Look at Stoke :lol:

I have noticed this too, but not quite on a scale which is evidently problematic.

My first season 3 teams stayed up with under 40, 2nd season was 3 and 38 went down, 3rd season 2 stayed up with 36, 4th season teams stayed up with 34 and 35.

So although I think its marginally lower than real life I don't think its at a level which shows a clear fault and not a quirk of chance - at least in my save

Guys, you can't mention CM's ratings while GK's are getting rated the way they do. That is the biggest issue.

0 GK's even make the shortlist for the Golden Ball in the 1st 3 years of my game, (but plenty of MC's do).

I don't understand your obsession with the Golden Ball. GK's barely get a look in there IRL either, especially before Neuer.

Can't speak for England - although I'll check it out when I get back on to the save to see what's happening - but in Scotland the weaker teams look a lot stronger than they probably should. Think Aberdeen won the league in the first season (not massively stretching reality, but still unexpected), and Partick Thistle finished 4th (I'm not saying that's stretching reality, but I think Elvis, Shergar and Lord Lucan did the half-time draw on the final game of the season)

Can you please raise the issue here - http://community.sigames.com/forumdisplay.php/506-Other-Gameplay-Issues

Ideally with a save game example from just before the question is asked?

Thanks.

I apologize if this has been asked before, but does FM 16 fully support 64bit systems (ie. utilize more than the 4GB RAM limit on 32 bit systems)?

Unsure if this has been reported on or not but after finishing my first season I had a team meeting pop up, might of been about the start of the season I can't really remember but the problem was I wasn't able to finish it after choosing one option something like "we all did great last season, lets see what we can do this season" I had to go on holiday to get past it.

Wasnt in windowed mode or small screen res, same as last year it's fine so can't be that.

There's a very good chance those points (if not necessarily all the teams) will be closely replicated this season. Bournemouth could very well stay up with 28 points, or even less. The teams at the bottom end of this year's PL are particularly brutal, including the one in red and white stripes that I unfortunately have a season ticket for, for the first time!

fm is still 32bit so it cant use more than 4 gigs of ram

More important is the trend of overrating of Newcastle in FM releases. :brock::D

After the update the game is much more slower to me.

Anyone else have that problem ?

And the good news after reading the bug thread, is that Duncan has got to the bottom of it. :thup:

Question about skin: how to show the attributes analyzer polygon on player profile ?

Share this post

Share on other sites

When you are on a player's profile screen the different boxes have drop down arrows letting you change what is shown in that part of the screen.

Not all sections show have all options available. I've chosen to show the polygon where the biography is by default (by clicking on that little arrow to top right of biography) and move biography elsewhere on screen

That's too low, I think real life is 80%+. If possible, could you upload your save to the bugs forum please?

Thanks for your reply mate. As I said it's a small sample size at the moment so don't feel it would be a fair reflection - also could just be my penalty takers. Could easily just be a bad run as I'm not far into the save yet so keen to let it go for longer to make a proper judgement!

Hi Folks

Not sure if Im alone but watching my team play is like watching a game of netball , 2 touch passing with almost Zero running with the ball .. Makes it very frustrating as players constantly get tangled up with the ball and opponent

What resolution are you playing on?

I think maybe the resolution affects how many boxes you have which can be problematic as the polygon can only go in some box.

In my screen I can only put the polygon in the 4 boxes on the top row, not anywhere else. It is called "Attribute Analysis"

The box it was in showed the biography by default - I've also changed some at the bottom - eg. moving career stats higher up

Thanks for the response. I did have a look at the minimum specs, and understand that as the official word as I'm aware XP is not supported at all anymore by Windows... BUT has anyone had any luck running it? Bought ICC15 from Steam that was Win7 and that ran somehow....

Just wondering if anyone is/was in the same situation as me..

Yes, it does work. Tried it on my old netbook but I still suggest you to try the demo 1st just in case it doesn't work for you.

I can't even put it in that resolution to test I'm afraid.

Different skins will have different panels in different places so maybe keep an eye on the skinning forum for alternatives on the coming weeks. There is one there already

Legend. I'll probably not pre-order and wait for the demo just in case... Thank you!

I play in that res on my laptop, a couple of screens are a bit jumbled/have to use the scrolling bars, but its completely playable.

I think hubx meant too low to include boxes allowing you to show the polygon. Can you confirm if at that res you can edit boxes to show the polygon as per the image hubx quoted further up

The text which comes up in transfers along the lines of "Delighted at swift negotiations" seems a little out of place when you have met a min fee release clause.

Maybe something along the lines of 'grudgingly accept' would be more appropriate

So the patch made performance significantly worse for me

i5 2500k @ 4.4Ghx

7970GE Edition

2-5 seconds everytime ou click on something , long pauses when moving the game forward or entering a match etc. The game was lightning fast pre patch.

Bought the game. Hate the blurring effect. Apart from that its all great. Loving the match engine, like watching match of the day! Yes there are a few bugs but its a beta version so its expected. Each of the issues that I have noticed have already been reported so fingers crossed they get looked into. Thanks SI!

I'm also being asked if I will rest players for the upcoming FA cup semi-final, when I'm neck and neck with 2 other terms in the prem title race.

Not sure if bug but don't have save from any time remotely soon before that press conference any - I wonder if the fact I'm not predicted to be anywhere near the prem title is what is confusing it.

Just won the FA Cup and there were no celebrations. There was confetti but the players just walked towards the tunnel and the camera cut to the post-match team talk pretty quickly

So far I really like the game. I skipped FM 15 after reading not much changed with the engine. This release has really nice game play. So far, playing Liverpool, I have had two issues. First was starting the season with EIGHT players injured. Not sure if this was an anomaly or what. The other one is a bit bigger and that is the tactics screen. The game style selections are pretty awesome. The player selection couldn't be worse. Hopefully someone comes to their senses and fixes it.

In my save I'm Tottenham and Arsenal finished 4th and Chelsea finished 5th. Chelsea won the Champions League, but now there are 5 teams going into the Champions League. Doesn't one team get dropped like Arsenal who are in 4th? That is what happened to Tottenham when they finished 4th a couple years back and Chelsea won the CL. Can anyone elaborate?

Max is 5 teams. Like Spain this season, Sevilla qualified as EL winners, Barca, RM, AM and Valencia through the league.

i offered a director of management a job as a scout after i saw another team had put in a offer for him, i bid somewhere in the region of 10k a week he said it's not good enough, i bid up to 14.25k and he rejects, fine... Valencia sign him as a scout for just over 3k a week????? what? he has no affiliation to the club either apart from the fact he's spanish. what gives?

So, what do you know I finally dowloaded El Capitan this afternoon for my MacBook Pro 2014 13', and FM15 is essentially worthless now (read all about it, I'm over it). FINE, I was going to buy FM16 sooner rather then later. However, I see there are similar issues being raised in the bug forums for the beta but with no definitive answers about any resolutions. Before I even think about spending $50 bucks, I'd love to get some clarity where things stand. Anybody have news they can share? I just can't buy this with such a major issue looming....

still can't get custom graphics to work on the beta, can anyone help with this please? I have tried the custom launch fix and that did not help, please advise!

I got mine working and I didn't do anything different from FM15. I just copied the logos into the graphics folder and unchecked " Use skin cache" from the preferences in the game and reloaded the skin.

Regarding the lag and micro-freezes, we have a thread in the bug forum, it would be nice if people offered more input there.

I did that as well, same as with FM15 but instead of adding my graphics instead it deleted the existing ones so now no teams have the real logos at all :(

I'm not sure but I think verifying game cache from steam might help here, if not maybe reinstalling can fix it.

tried that as well, trying changing the path again to see if that might help but not expecting it to :(

don't really want to reinstall as internet here is garbage so will take hours to do that.
