So if you use a picture of yourself wearing sunglasses to create a generated profile pic within the game.... then this is what you get....

I can't use it at all, because I have a massive round head, long hair, glasses and a beard, end up looking like a rotten watermelon.

 

Love the new views, and so far it isn't crossing smashing everyone.

I've just posted in Makoto Nakamura's thread but it's worth repeating here that the same legal restrictions regarding the discussion of the German national team situation on these forums apply to the Brazilian team names, especially regarding any potential 'fixes' which will result in post deletion. Since I imagine it will come up quite a bit this year I thought people should know.

I'm enjoying it so far. Just messing around on the beta before I do my thread on release day

Question for anyone who has MLS active (I'm at work at won't be home for another 6+ hours, and then have to finish downloading the beta that Steam lied to me about how long it would take):

Can you confirm that Minnesota United and Atlanta United are in the game? Thought I saw them in the FM17 features video

Cool-io. :thup:

edit: Will be interesting to see if the 2018 season includes LAFC and Miami (I doubt it, since Miami still hasn't finalized a stadium plan).

The clubs would be already in the game if they were, I think, and I can find no sign of them.

does anyone know how long does it usually take for additional playable leagues(georgia, armenia, azerbaijan, etc.) to become available for FM17? 

[edit] I'm considering a new eastern-european career/thread and I'd happily do it on FM16 as I expect these leagues will take at least 2-3 months to get ready. although it looks like the audience for that would be minimal given the new FM flurry)

Finished downloading the beta and.....first it froze up on the titles screen. Then it froze up on the "loading" screen.

Deleted and redownloading, hoping it's just that the gap in the first download (had to shut it down to go to work) caused a hiccup.

I hardly ever venture onto the main board for just this very reason. I used to love GQ and OTF to a lesser extent, but I think I would rather pull my own teeth than venture in there now. There are eegits everywhere, but especially online and as I have grown older my tolerance level for...... eegits, has become almost non-existent. 

 

I really can't be doing with eegits nowadays.

Yet you still communicate with me.

Unbelievable debut match for Guatemala in the 2010 World Cup: 2 goals and 3 red cards in about half an hour.

Watch out for the World Cup update in my thread. :idiot:

Hi Mods in here. 

I gave 10 lots of rep yesterday so received this message. Now though, despite it being a new day, I'm still at my limit. Any idea what's going on?

have a few ideas for a new career in FM17, mostly based on developing eastern european football. Just a shout out to the community to see if anyone would be interested in following a 'rise from the ashes' type of story in Romania? 

Cheers guys

just realized the team I want to manage is in the 4th Romanian league so I'll probably have to wait a month or two before somebody releases the custom leagues for eastern europe...arrgh

I hate that! There was an amateur club in Bulgaria last year, with nice(for the level) youth recruitment that I badly wanted to play as and do a youth only save. They were two divisions below playable though, and I couldn't find a custom Bulgarian league file.

It's a pain waiting for the editor files you want to start a proper save!

You think I've got copyright on all Eastern European saves? :D

Might not be worth waiting out for a Romania file tbh, you can usually find a lot of added leagues, but expansions are rare. Might well be that nobody creates one, or it's only available on obscure Romanian sites. You'd be better off either doing something else, or creating it yourself on the editor!

For real, I want so many leagues for my massive journeyman. Which is why I went for another "proper save" idea to tackle first, that doesn't need an editor.

) who knows, i thought maybe those 10 years in Sofia changed you and you're exhibiting some typical Bulgarian imperialist vibes :D

on a serious note though, it seems like that's the most likely scenario. I'll have to figure out something new, maybe managing a central european club with some interesting history, think czech republic, hungary or poland... suggestions are welcome!

[edit]

sorted out a club for myself. literally)

Quick question guys...does anyone know what font and what size is used when making a post on here?  I can see the option to change the size of the font but no option to change the font.  If I remember correctly, you used to be able choose from 4 or 5 fonts when making a post...

@RawareYou used to be able to change the font, but that's before the forum changed recently.  The size of the font is 14, but God only knows what font it is. Maybe whoever was involved the upgrade might be able to find out.

Thanks Jimbokav1971 :thup:.  I remember being able to change the font on the previous forums but wondered if it was just me who couldn't find out where to change it on these new boards.

That's the one I used on Full FM, seems to have a load of logos too.

I used the Metallic pack on FMT.

cheers guys

in the meantime, another issue has appeared, I can't seem to be able to change the logo of a club added through the 'create a club' feature. Tried to assign a new logo in the coding files and it just won't happen... if anyone has any idea how to fix this I'd be obliged. Oh, and if this is a discussion suited to some other part of the forum, please let me know and I'll remove the post ;)

Sounds like MLS scheduling is borked. Only a 31-game season programmed (pending whenever MLS gets around to announcing how the 2017 schedule will be drawn up). :thdn:

1. Nope, only on full release. 

2. No clue either, I'm spending far more time than I should on FM every night to keep up. Going near middle of season 2 now, but some people are way further to the future already which is bonkers.

3. A one-club only challenge with a small club, like a Dafuge challenge, or the Big Euro or Gundo versions (same as Dafuge's but in other nations), or if you're crazy enough, a Youth Challenge. You can do any of these by loading up the leagues of a single nation only, whereas as a journeyman you'll want to load loads of leagues which your laptop might not keep up with.

I'm near the middle of season 2 on FM16 so I wouldn't be too worried about it.
