Excellent news.

And if my defensive problems vanish after my summer break, I'll probably never find out if it's because of the new players and the adapted tactic - or the fixed match engine. ;)

Good job guys, looking forward to play.

Just bought the game after this patch released, but now when I want to install, I get this error:

A quick question if I may: I'm playing FMT on PC, will the national team rankings bug be fixed if I continue my save? Or do I have to start a new game?

Going to be all sorts of anger tonight when all those tactics exploiting the wonky fullbacks stop being nearly as effective

Have you tried restarting Steam MindstateNL?

Thanks, I've tried and also tried restarting my pc without avail.

Ultimately found out it was likely because of the time setting of my laptop (I'm currently in Japan). Changed the time setting to a European time and all worked out. Now lets get down to play, keep it up!

Pretty sure this fix will only affect new games.

EDIT: Just had this confirmed, new saves only!

Shame :( But I can see why, I guess it's the starting values that throw everything off. Thanks.

- Improved defending of full backs who were tucking in inappropriately

- Improved behaviour of backline when deciding to cover out of position players

- Fixed some instances of poor back passes and goalkeepers lack of reaction to them

- Improved defenders behaviour when reacting to a ball they are favourite to win

- Improved goalkeeper decisions to parry ball back into play when they could let the ball go out

- Improved accuracy of shots on goal

- Refined passing decision making to reduce instances of unnecessary direct and rushed passes

:applause: to all of these.

I can't believe I'm stuck at work all day before I get to play this. The ME was already in the best launch state that I've seen in years.

does the latest update fix the crash/graphics problem for MAC users please

It depends what issue you had exactly, but I'd suggest trying with the update and if you still have issues, raising it in the Mac section of the Bugs forums. Thanks.

Double citizen players are still cannot be called to teams, they can be added to national pool but they cannot be called. I already reported that in bugs forum and it is under review but it is not fixed.

quick test: 5 games, goals scored from crosses: 1; goals conceded from crosses: 0.

Much more intelligent behavior from all defenders, feels generally harder to create and score goals (for AI as well), the fullback issue was really ruining this for me and seems to be fixed. Very promising!

My game now barely works, everything takes several minutes to happen (loading of the game, loading of the save game, proceeding betwen days and changing pages), not even mentioning very slow matches. I erased cache, preference and verified game files, nothing seems to work for me.

I was having to add so many tweaks to get my defenders to behave, and it was all the harder because I consistently play wingless formations without ML/MR or AML/AMR cover. This sounds great.

I already won the league and cup with Hibs, so I started a new save wanting to try a new tactic when steam updated, so I started with the tactic I used before with success. Played one friendly and won 5-0, less crosses from my wingbacks due to opposition fb's playing better, keepers seem more aware, back passes stronger and keepers coming for them. Not a huge difference to ME just the odd wee niggles seems gone, will need to play a few more games to make sure all seems fine.

I really don't want this update yet, but evil Steam won't let me access my game. I've got it to play offline but now Steam is forcing me to go online and update to this fix. It tells me there is an error updating. Can anyone show me how to play the game I paid for and get these b******** off my back?

Once the game starts updating there isn't any way of going back to a previous version. You can set Steam to only download updates when you tell it to, which I'd suggest doing in the future if you're not intending on updating your game.

Please make sure you include any information that might give us an idea of what could be causing this, so if you're runny any custom graphics or skins please include that info too.

Just got this when loaded game pressed continue and bam! I am using a skin so will try it without skin.

Seems to work with FM skin but not skins from peeps! Tried going back to skin and same thing happened so its a clash with the forum skin users.

Which contract issue?

Where players (or specifically their agents) somehow not interested at contract negotiations, whilst having asked for them.

Although my case is a bit special- at time of asking was interested, now that his abilities improved, thinks the squad isn't good enough for his level.

If anyone is getting crash dumps at the moment and are running a custom skin, we suggest removing the skin and trying again. Please let us know if this does, or doesn't, fix the crash dumps.

Yeah, it looks like Julius's explanation of your issue makes sense. It's often quite hard for lower rep teams to hold onto higher PA players if they decide they're too good for that team.

Removing custom skin stops the crash dumps.

Looks like the Andromeda skin was causing my issues.

Dropped that and i've been fine so far :thup:

It would be funny, if it wasn't for the fact that my team has Worldwide reputation.
