Football Manager 2017 Pre-Release Beta Feedback Thread

So once you set your manager at the beginning of the game, you can't play as other? Shame, as I tend to play with manager of nationality and name of the league I play in.

And how do you change background? For me its white on default skin, with green overlay on some screens.

You can edit it or create a new one when you start a new career,

More  a question that might have been touched upon. re skins and stuff.  I copied correct path into lanch properties but no access to skin i want. What am i doing wrong? Any help appreciated.

In the skin folder look for skin_config.xml then change the line  <string id="required_version" value="16.0.0" /> to  skin_config.xml line to <string id="required_version" value="17.0.0" />  Then the game will pick up the skin

I pre-ordered on Amazon. Do I get to play the demo?

It's a Beta not a demo, and it's only for digital purchases. Did you buy digitally or a boxed disc copy?

It will, but it is risky, as quite a lot of stuff will be broken and can occasionally lead to crashes, best waiting for skins to be properly updated for FM17

I'm probably missing something obvious, but any way to edit your manager before starting a new game? I skipped over to load a quick game to browse around a bit and now I can't seem to find the option before starting my first serious save

No highlight of attributes for what a Sports Scientist should be good at.

No attributes to show how good a staff is at what he is advicing at( that was a feature put in last year, please put it back) If Rob Edwards is giving advice on tactical, i should see his attributes for Tactical and Tactical knowledge, without opening his profile

Anyone else had an issue with Twitch logging you in even when you press cancel on the dialog box?

Note it is not recommended to do this as skins cannot generally be used across different versions of FM - some skins may look like they work, however they may crash the game on screens that have been modified from FM16 (or weren't present in FM16), so if doing this do it at your own risk or wait for the full release when the skin makers have had a chance to update/recreate their skins for FM17.

So what attributes am I looking for for the new staff roles ?

To be honest, I just placed adverts for the roles and took whoever's stats were better

It should really be highlighted though, much like everything else is

So even before I  start life as the  new NUFC manager in any meaningful way (3days in) and after offering them a impoved contract  I get all my sports scientists and my data analysts poached! Umm, that does not generally happen so quickly.

Maybe I'm missing something, but do I have to pick the team I am going to manage before loading up the game?

On older versions I could load up the leagues I wanted, then have a nosey before making the choice. I cant see why this has been taken out, so I must be doing something wrong?

am I the only one who is a bit fed up of the constant signposting of which attributes are best for certain role. Now on the training page It tell me what type of training by coaches are best at. i remember the good old days when you had to work this stuff out myself. Maybe i'm just getting old. :lol:

The other staff roles have their attributes highlighted , just data analyst and sports scientist don't.

Just noticed the same thing. That tiny thing is a little step backwards if it stays that way.

We're aware that no attributes are indicated for Sports Scientist and Data Analyst. That's because there's no group of attributes they need to be specifically good at their job. Appreciate you all taking the time to raise this and it's something we're looking into.

Has this been taken away, Neil, compared to FM16, where you could see this without having to open each staff member's profile?

Is there any noticeable preformance improvement with the 64 bit support?

I'm seeing vast improvements with the UI in general and the engine seems to be a bit more stable... whether thats the 64bit support or just general improvements to the game, I cannot say

I'm likely being incredibly stupid, but I can't see where you choose your rep & qualifications? I appear to be about to start a save and the rep is set to automatic and no qualifications? Halp?

Because I'm lazy can I still get the beta if I order the game now? 

Yes, as long as you purchase from a retailer providing it... Suggest Steam directly, get your game quick :)

Same as before, where you created your manager and set his attributes?

Does it not matter what one you hire then? Just a case of getting one in and they'll perform more or less the same? 

I guess that's ok as the differentiation is that smaller clubs won't have one for budgeting reasons but the bigger clubs will and the output will be generally the same.

Its on the Manager Style screen which is after you select your club, under the Badges and Experience dropdowns, utick the 'suggest' option and you should now be able to select your own badges and rep.

There's a staff responsibilities tab.

That's pretty much it - if you have data analysts certain news items will be generated, likewise with the sports scientists certain injuries will be treated quicker. I don't know all the in's and outs though I'm afraid.

Is this supposed to be this white on default skin? I really like it, but this white in inbox is too heavy for me.

'Staff > Responsibilities' when in charge of a club will do the same job (specific to that club rather than manager obviously).  :thup:

No, most non-playing staff still have this.

Yeah , but I believe the one upon profile creation allowed you to set defaults so you don't have to go into it and set it up with every new save.

Doesn't seem to be any way of getting the first one back up
