Italian language still not traduced at 100%

All languages should be complete now if you have the full release version (17.1.1). There will no doubt be the odd missing translation here and there due to errors either game-side or translation side.

Please go to the translation section of the forum and report any issues you find in the appropriate language topic (after reading the opening sticky post)

I was just going to ask you guys about those steam reviews. I am worried about purchasing because of it. I trust you guys here more than those steam reviews, so thumbs up or thumbs down on FM17?

Steam reviews are apparently a sizeable group of Chinese people reviewing it poorly for reasons I am unsure of - maybe language based.

Game is great at the moment

Don't trust anyone's opinion. Instead, try out the demo yourself and give yourself an indication of what the game is like. That's what I'm doing right now. :)

I'm browsing the editor and it seems all the team's nicknames have been deleted

Yeah there's been a large number of Chinese users downvoting the game due to the fact the Chinese language wasn't due to be added. It's being added now. I would take the word of folks here plus from the reviews thread to get an idea - https://community.sigames.com/topic/385918-football-manager-2017-reviews/

And the demo is out as well if you want to see for yourself. Available via the FM17 Steam page.

I also seem to have had an issue updating from beta to full, although I'm at work now so can't try the fixes mentioned above.

Another small point but my Steam Achievements haven't all updated either. I've managed to keep a clean sheet and score a goal without taking charge of my first match apparently!

Thanks guys, knew something was up.

I'm sure you understand that after buying No Man's Sky and Mafia 3 day one without waiting for reviews (never doing that again) I am VERY skeptical about buying games with bad reviews.

I think this is the first time I have downloaded the demo, going to have a go today to see how it feels.

This thread feels rather quiet for this time of year, which I think is a very good sign :D

The only issue I have so far, is the lack of a manager photo being able to be added in game - if anyone has a work around for this, it would be greatly appreciated?

I think Neil said you add a photo for your manager the same way you can add custom photos for players and staff, just need to find out your manager's ID in the game then so you can name the photo.

Before this gets lost in the thread can anyone help. Is it a bug or am I missing something.

Are we able to import stuff (views etc) from 2016 or do we need to start afresh?

Just trying this now, looks like you have to create them from scratch as the FM16 views won't import.

In general terms, modifying club names through lnc files will see the respective nicknames removed, which is why it is preferable for club name changes to be done through editor data files, with which this issue does not surface. The drawback for using this method is that it can only be applied before starting a new save game. Sort it out SI!

 

For obvious licensing reason, not more can be said on these official forums. Hope I've managed to toe the party line, mods ;)

Intrigued about the graphics capabilities this year.  Have they been upgraded massively because when playing and using "preferred graphics for my pc" the game says mine are three stars and it places me on medium graphics.  FM16 capability was very high because I got the card deliberately.  My card is a 1279MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX570.

What is the thinking behind no Twitter auto-updates with FM17?

I thought maybe that it had just not been activated in the Beta, but it would seem that it's not working in the full game either. (There has not yet been a single FM17 auto update on Twitter). 

[Edit]

I tell a lie. @FalseTen has just posted the first auto-updates by the look of it. 

[Edit2]

Actually there are some out there, but they are tiny in number.

Kazza, I don't know the answer to your question, but I don't think this is the correct pace to post it. I believe you'll have better luck if you open a thread.

You should be able to right click his name and send him home. It might be under rest or something.

I've been playing the BETA version with no issues but today I've tried loading up the game and I'm just stuck on the 'Preparing to Launch FM 2017' steam pop-up, any ideas? I've downloaded and can use the Editor no issue but not the full game!

I would try and verify your game cache (info on this in the faq pinned at the top of the forums) ...

Just crank the settings up manually and see if it stutters. The star rating is at best a guide, you don't have to follow it. For what it's worth - even my GTX 1070 doesn't get five stars which suggests the rating is not very accurate.

Possible 2 bugs (sorry no save game)

  1. Started as Arsenal in the Beta, disabled transfer in first window. didn't get any money to spend in Jan window??                          
  2. again as Arsenal in the Beta, out of the transfer window had agreed the purchase of Griezmann (for under his min release clause), got bored of constantly accepting weekly extensions for A.Madrid to buy a replacement so i cancelled and went to buy for over his release clause but could not disable the 'wait for replacement option'.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Surely A.Madrid would ask to delay for 3 months to find replacement, also why would i have to accept the 'find replacement option' when i met his min fee release (pay full amount up front)

I will rephrase my question - can anyone from SI share if there have been any ME changes from BETA to full release?

They confirmed there was in the 600MB patch a few days ago.  They won't  list them though, no idea about the patch last night.

Thanks for your questions and comments,

There was an update to the ME when we updated the PRB on Monday the 31st of October, which is the same ME that was for release, however the PRB got early access to this of course :)

I hope that you continue to enjoy FM17 :)

If you have any issues or any problems with the ME, simply head over to our part of the forum and review the pinned reporting guidelines and someone will be able to help.

Cheers,

Nic

My 3-5-2 which was working beautifully, isn't anymore and now I'm not sure it's because I got promoted or because of the ME changes. Or both.

I suspect I may have been exploiting slightly some balancing issues with the previous version of the ME.

Further details:

One thing that annoys me, and this was in FM16 also, so I'm guessing it's by design, is having to pick set piece takers for every tactic. Why on earth would I choose differently?

Hey noikeee, 

There were no ME changes whatsoever between the beta and release. Both run with ME 17000.

Fair enough. Had a quick look at the thread you linked and I wouldn't say the issues highlighted there are directly related to changes made between MEs. As you say yourself, the main culprit may be the promotion. If you spot any ME bugs/oddities please do post them in the ME bugs forum, otherwise good luck! If it helps I'm using a 3-5-2 myself, with intermittent success.

Just started - really like the new... skin?  Clean, composed and useful info all on the screen at the read. 

I like the new promises bit prior to starting contract negotiations - adds a new wrinkle/strategy, but it is yet one more thing of which to keep track.

I like the social media thing - would love to see fan responses and such expanded in a future patch or something.

Haven't gotten into a match yet, so I've not seen the ME.

So far, so good SI!
