Have you removed borderless windowed mode? I only get windowed and fullscreen as possibilities?

Full Screen mode is Borderless Windowed now.

The UI feels a bit....slowish? Compared to FM17 (I played earlier today) and FM18 is not as responsive as FM17 when pressing buttons. It seems like it to me at least. I don't know if the specs are much higher than FM17 though...

Any specific buttons? May be worth raising in the UI forums for us - https://community.sigames.com/forum/567-user-interface/

Thanks! @michaeltmurrayuk also notified me. I just didn't find it in the preferences, so I was unsure if it was removed.

Everything looking pretty damn good so far.

Just one question though, when on the dark skin in the scouting section the screen or the main part of the screen should I say is white? Is that meant to be like that?

Cheers mate, nice one

EDIT - I cant find the option to change it to no package. There is a slider but its always enforcing a spend.

On Player Search where it displays your 'Scouting Package' near the top left, click that to bring up the option of various packages.

Hello everyone!

 

I bought the game a month ago on this site.

I didn't get the steam code for activation via email.. Has anyone ever happened to that? 

I sent them a mail to find the reason..I'm waiting for an answer.

See on this part of the tactics screen, it shows you can now use preset player instructions for a position or create your own. But both let you edit them, and the personalised ones don't get rid of the presets. I might be missing something, but what is the point of this?

So ive read on the builds page there are no faces in the beta for regens, wondering on full release will they be assigned a face ?or will they be blank portraits forever?

so does this means i don't have to bother with facepacks or is it something else?

The personalised ones aren't for you as the manager, they are for that particular player.

Right, so if you choose position, then regardless of who plays in that position/role, those instructions will stick? Whereas you can choose to also have specific ones for players?

It means the facegen ones - ones used for regens. Real players should still use the photos if they are a licensed player or you add your own.

There's a pecil icon on the image your manager profile screen... I'm guessing we can add it at a later date? Can anyone confirm?

I don't like the TI's/PI's etc being on the right of the tactics screen, bunches up the player list too much.

Yes it's the same as previous versions its just been brought forward so you know it exists - personalized instructions will only apply to that player - for example if you picked the personalised option for Darren Smith and changed him to a Winger, he'd use the winger role but anyone else you added would use the Inside Forward role if you hadn't set them personalised instructions.

Tell you what, there's no way I'm working away from home next time FM Beta drops... I started downloading as soon as it was available, and I have only reached 63% so far...

You can edit your appearance as you go on if you wish. So change those clothes up for Winter ;)

Yes you can edit the manager when you want. (Should be a tweet from Miles around where he says you can now change your tie colour when you want for example).

Yes, you can set instructions for either the position or an individual player.

So for an AML you could set it by position, choose the role/duty and add any extra PIs and any player that plays there will play that role/duty etc unless you change it.

or you can set it by player.  So say you had two different AMLs that you rotate you could set each up with their own individual role/duty/extra PIs.

Thank you both for your replies. My issue is the black silhouette; I don't have a manager picture at all

The game seems to run much slower than 17. Also I seem to struggle with saving a 2nd or 3rd tactic on the tactics screen.

The game looks good, just lost my first match 2-1.

Yeah that's because the generated images are disabled as stated within the build notes. Thanks.

Whoop! 13mb per second. Expected this to be real slow tonight. Job done, time to mess around with an international team while I observe the games changes.

No career before editor for me. 11 subs on the bench and strict home grown rules for my long term saves.

Playing on Mac book Pro and the txt is very pixelated and blurry. Why can i only choose the option (1280 x 800) for the resolution? Last years version was fine. Looks horrific and very blurry. Tried this on 85% 95% and 100% and all the same for zoom out text. 

 

Please offer a solution, unplayable for me on this setting.

Is there a way to make the player search box (where you set your search criteria) any bigger? It feels a bit small and aligned to the right hand side of the screen. It would be nice if I could expand it and have it centered.

Might just be my screen resolution (though didn't have this problem last year): is the on-screen text/player icons on 2D Classic too small for anyone else?

Hardly unplayable but it seems a little... off

This is a known issue and mentioned in the beta release thread. Bear in mind that this is a beta version, which is still a work in progress.

Ok obviously I don't work for SI but from what Miles said earlier about being able to edit your manager appearance at any point during the game, I'd hazard a guess that you WILL be able to.

Blurry as heck on 2560 × 1440  as well as True 4K 4096 × 2160? Neither are Apple incidentally, I'm with the 90% market share that is windows.

Having a look on one of my laptops next - 1080p - see what that looks like.

Seem to recall FM17 looking a bit naff at 2560 × 1440
