Which bug is that? Retina worked ok for me I think?

 

Was never solved in fm18, if you wanted any performance.

So you preferred FM18's scouting cards which had acres of 'wasted space' compared to the new ones? 

Yes, I much preferred FM 18 scouting meeting to this :

Game’s looking good so far. Are you really not allowed to give a player individual training for tackling? If so, what’s the thinking behind that?

Unless I am (again) missing something - this screen doesn't show each club's suggested squad status / playing time, so I have to review each individually. This feels un-intuitive.

Thanks but this takes you through to the offer itself, I want to be able to review each from within the news feed.

I really like how it shows you each team's first season transfer dealings that have been done before you start the game. It's the little things.

How would you individually train someone's tackling? It isn't realistic for this to be available via individual training but the attribute can be trained during sessions.

That's just the thread talking about how retina wasn't available in the beta - I used it the entire time.

Or are you talking about it negatively impacting performance once enabled?

And I now note that you get individual news items for each 'finished scouting'. I realise a lot of people failed to appreciate the beauty of the FM18 scouting centre but this is a step back for me. Either have the scouting centre or don't, don't halfnhalf it .

 

EDIT - I see from the stream toffee71 kindly mentioned this might be editable, but I can't figure out how to bring up that screen they have at 3:41 in the scouting features video! Obviously failings on my part.

EDIT - found it - good feature.

Yes this was pretty useful in FM 18 (and even in previous games I think) so hopefully can be added back.

Btw started an MLS save just to see regens in the academy teams. Faces are better than 18 for sure but hairstyles... eh...

It's the same as the last few versions, its done from the Player Overview -> Profile screen, on the left in the Positions box click the Highlight menu and you can turn it off from there.

Yes but i need to do it every time that im in the player profile.. there is a way to make it permanent ?

I can't for the life of me work out how anyone can think this year's scouting centre is a 'step back' from last year. It's much handier, much more customisable. and getting individually requested reports into your inbox instead of trawling through the scouting page for them is a step forward on its own.

We're both fairly wrong. The receipt of reports is fully customizable which is a good feature - my step back comment was half based on my failure to notice this and I've acknowledged that above.

However, My personal view is that the presentation is poorer this year though - as per the pretty poor picture I uploaded, although maybe I just haven't figured that out either.

Stephen Dobbie's stats are absolutely insane by the way. He's the 2nd best Scottish striker in the game. This is a 35-yr old who plays for Queen of the South in the 2nd tier. I don't know if this says more about the game or the quality of striker we have up here now :lol:

ME looks promising and animations more fluid than ever I know other people probably have higher expectations for graphics but looks very good to me. Scouting also much better for me. Training... looking a bit complicated, tempted to leaving all to AM tbh. One thing I don't like is training categories are even more than before so now we need like a dozen coaches to achieve an optimal combination of training stars and light workload. How about merging 'Attacking' and 'Possession' in a single category? The fact that they both have two other sub-categories (technical and tactical) is too much imho.

Whilst I don't think Dobbie is the second best Scottish striker IRL - he had scored 21 goals, and 3 hattricks, by the end of September IRL. Quite understandable QoS researched would get a little carried away!

Turning it off from this screen will turn it off for all of them:

If it's still returned after turning it off from that screen then raise the issue as a bug as that should stop it.

Players complaining about game time who've started the last couple of games. The calc seems too skewed toward averaging out their minutes in the last 5+ games.

Can't believe one poster piled in with "[SI]...are pretty scummy" like 5 mins after the release... let the team have a well earned drink and deep breath before you steam in with impatience! 

An hour into my first sesh and i'm onto day 2. 

Already noticed some neat little additions. Think they are new, or certainly clearer... 

  • save your advanced setup 
  • quick scouting of competitions in inbox - which allow you to scout a competition for various preset criteria i.e. italia cup for a hot prospect and it fills in the age and ability criteria :thup:
  • i'm not one for press conferences but done a couple and the questions seem a little more relevant and cohesive
  • transfers that just happened in the real world are part of the news in the game 

UI is cleaner than I expected … though I think i'm in the minority that blank spaces put me at ease, other people moan... I cant get enough blank space! Some of the screens seem unnecessarily cluttered more informative i.e. contracts to expire in 1 year … the list seemed a bit cleaner in FM18 

I really don't like the training schedule appearing in the continue game calendar bar... can this be turned off somewhere in preferences? I just like to see my next fixture and all that information is making it hard to see in time (my eyes aren't naturally drawn to the fixture and my processor is really fast)

As with anything UI based though I wont criticise as I fully expect to barely notice it once I've played a few sessions, or maybe even prefer it. 

It feels like there are more tiny little improvements across the whole game, so I look forward to finding a few more. 

Hope the ME doesn't let me down if I get to a game tonight :D 

------

I cut a dashing figure, hope I stand out in the dugout

After my 1st few hours playing, very impressed with this years fm.

Actually really like the UI and it seems a lot cleaner and less clunky than last years, tactics are brilliant, love the overhaul and all the set ups you mess around with. Have to there’s a lot of great little touches that really make a difference, like the dividers you can set up. Another plus is the training ratings, that’s an excellent addition. I did have a go at the training, but is an awful lot to take in and get head round, so for now left that to my assistant and just altering little bits here and there.

I thought the ME looked pretty solid to me as well.

My only negative, is the text seems a little small, and I’ve got it on the biggest setting.

Overall though for me fm19 is very impressive and so much better than fm18, so keep up the good work.

Thank you for SI for bringing back the notification of what goal # of the season it is for each scorer. Biggest flaw with FM18.

Opens training module.......:ackter:

New UI seems snappy , the purple is alright but clashes quite badly with the club colours of some teams  ( started an Ajax save and the purple and red aren't great). Some brilliant new features hidden away in menus that I doubt I'd have clicked if I hadn#t been watching videos e.g the scouting card filters.

Visuals are improved again which is nice.

Delighted to hear this is back, it only showed in FM18 when a player scored a penalty.

As @Seb Wassell suggested, read the brief guide. But your assistant manager did that already, so you can delegate it also to him.

Feedback regarding mentoring:

The new mentor groups feature comes under the training for each individual team which means you can't have senior players mentor your U23s or U18s anymore. Unless there is a workaround it would be great if you could make it possible to mentor kids again!

"The" Testimonal. Great - but whose? If I click on the "Testimonial" hyperlink it takes me to the next global round of unrelated testimonials, not actually the match in question itself. Only by flicking along the dates do I find out whose it is. (

Clicking on my own schedule also shows it, but surely hyperlink / news item would be better. Obviously I presume there will be other better news items about the match, and this one about TV scheduling just fell through the gaps for insertion of the name.

Thanks, I will try to study a bit in the next days!

Training categories: including sub-categories there's 10 of them which means 10 different staff members required to achieve the 'best' training quality, plus a couple more to lower the workload to 'light'. Personally I find entertaining to build a huge staff with different training skills, though not very realistic. I'm glad that at least we're back to two categories for GK - having three senior GK coaches was really too much!

Players have to be in the same squad to mentor one another.

You should be able to have a man outside the area for every set piece type both attacking and defending

IRL there's almost always a man outside the box for second balls from original clearances for both attacking and defending teams. Yes, there will be times players are dragged out of position with set piece moves, but generally players will be there. I should be able to set an instruction to always have a player there for all set pieces.

Hi folks, how do you make the 'play bar' hide during the match unless you want to view it? You can normally select this option but I can't see how I can select this. Being constantly on the screen, takes up a sizable amount & is distracting. Many thanks

How is grouping senior players into bunches of 5 more realistic? Surely senior players mentoring U23s is a lot more realistic irrespective of whether it's one on one or in groups

Why does it no make sense? If you want to tutor a player he should be during the training with you in the same team/group.

Surely in most cases, those being mentored will be youth players; thus be in either the U23 or U18 squad? Kind of defeats the object a tad? Is there a workaround by placing them in the senior squad but making them available for the U23s?

Players actually have to train and spend time together to mentor one another. In reality players outside of the same squad very rarely spend time together.
