Game not updating in steam for me... Getting an error saying "missing file privileges".

Restarting steam isn't doing anything. Any ideas?

Install in other drive than C:  You are trying to install the game on a Disk that windows 10 doesn't give you the permission for, for security reasons. Just install in a D: or whatever you have until Z: I gess =)

First, this is just for completeness.   For the beginning of the game, if you have a manager who just joined during the middle of the summer or after the date you started, and you choose that team to start managing with, they are the manager for 0-1 days, which is kind of silly and unrealistic. :)

Surely it's just as unrealistic taking over a club that's just hired a manager a few days beforehand?

Just spent an hour perfecting my design a son. 

Goalkeeper of course, will see how he fares with "Brings Ball out of Defence" player trait, and 20 FKs and Pens :D 

Love it. Thanks @Neil Brock and co.

I’m interested in the origins of this 8k minimum wage Brexit model for foreign players. Have SI acted on advice or has it been plucked from thin air?

Not sure what's happened to the passing. Every game resembles a L2 hoof-fest. Despite tactical instructions to do the opposite,

Pass completion hovering late 50%/early 60% in games between big teams. Anyone else noticing the same?

Yes it's very difficult to play a short passing game right now. Long balls over the top and direct counters even though i don't instruct that. I did get 80% in my last match against Tottenham so there is room for improvement if you're at 50-60%.

Absolutely love it. I started with CM2 and couldn't stop playing. It was hard to get in America at the time and I didn't really understand the game of English football. I didn't play alot over the years since then with a couple of exceptions but did log 1100 hours in Football Manager 2017 and really enjoyed it. 2018 didn't grab me but 2019 has been fantastic and I am betting another 1000 hours on this version. I like the tactical changes but the training is cool as you can jump in only when you want to change something.

 

Cheers from the USA.

GUTTED! Been waiting weeks for this. Purchased the key via cdkeys which did not include the beta, so I've had to wait, all fired up, until today. I got the key on time via email - remember, all bought and paid for. When I enter it into STEAM they reject me because I live in a 'wrong' country. WHY? This is not piracy protection because I've already bought the damn thing. I can't communicate directly with Steam as they simply provide a Kafkaesque labyrinth of 'help' options that lock you out. So how on Earth do I get to download the game that I have already bought???? :mad:   :seagull:

The game cannot be activated in certain countries. It says so in small print on the box.

Yeah fair enough. Its not purchasing thats the issue it is Steam Activation.

Either way even a box just has the code on the inside.

yep that it does

not knowing his full details I would have thought there should have been some prompt before buying that it isnt available in all locations, when I first moved down under FM wasnt available in full lots of things were missing compared to version I could get in UK

so had a mate to send me a copy those were the days you needed a disk:D

I'm assuming that if you buy it through Steam for example, you will get that warning. The question is, where did he buy his CD key? :)

There are more retailers (even official ones recommended by SI) than Steam.

Again its not the CD Key thats the issue going off what he said but its location. 

Where he bought the key is irrelevant.

What region that translates to, I'm not sure in terms of purchasing keys on online retailers.

Hi, the situation is that a shorter list of locked countries was up on Steam and other sites - it included the likes of China and Hong Kong, but Cambodia was not mentioned. Cambodia did not appear in a list of approved nations, NOR any list of unapproved. So I enquired with the various companies selling keys discussed in a thread on this forum. The likes of VOIDU said they excluded Cambodia, but when I asked CDKEYS they had no problem. Today they sent me a photocopy of the key you get in a box which I copied into the right place, but STEAM wouldn't activate it due to my residence. I have had this issue every year but previously the company that took my money sorted it out quickly. Maybe CDKEYS would have fixed the issue later in the day, but as it is the superlative customer service of SI has seen me good, so for that I am extremely grateful.

Loving this version of the match engine. Looks like they've nailed the balance between cross manager and punt manager. Seeing some delightful stuff. 

Got my 3-5-2 working just as intended with wide midfielders instead of defensive wingers due to the dribble more and run wide stuff, but whatever works.

Can someone confirm if the direct passing over the top in short passing and low tempo setting has been tamed? This is very important for me to help decide whether I'll enjoy and continue to play FM or not.

How can any other user give a judgment on this and whether you are going to enjoy the game?  Try it for yourself

I had a similar experience with a different retailer. They sold a "Global" licence to the game, but it was instead region-locked. Very annoying.

I wish SI would stop altering prices based on location, especially locations where cost of living is so similar that a price discrepancy is nonsensical (i.e. UK/Europe vs. USA/Canada). I guess I should have just bought directly from Steam for C$60, but that seemed like such a silly price when FM-ers in Europe were paying <C$50 for the exact same game.

SI does not set the retail price- the game is distributed by SEGA but the retailers can set their own price

I am having the identical problem. When I ordered the game it was listed as Worldwide but I notice their store now specifies EU.

How did you sort out the problem?

I gave the required details (my Steam account and the FM19 key I'd purchased) to someone in an approved country who activated it via Steam.

I'll need to change a few things involving hibs. The researcher has got so many things wrong. 

Yea a lot of the young players haven't been touched in the past 2 years, need upgrading and some  stats are way off for other players, nothing major just made right.

Just had my first game since updating to full game, had a goal go in from a cross, assistant raised his flag the text said refs going to VAR then the next line was the goals been ruled out for offside. 3d highlights on extended but got no animation of the ref going to the VAR guy or anything just the goal being ruled out as keeper taking the free kick, this a bug?

If there is any doubt, upload the match .pkm in the Bugs forum and let the developers have a look.

Run a few test first and there is a difference between direct pass and  attempting a through pass. But as its called Player Preferred Move 8/10 thats what they should do.

Must've done, in the 125 hours I put into the beta I never had a game like that, especially against an underdog

Match Engine in the beta is always a more basic version of what will be released in the full game, likely to see if the majority pick up on the same thing the SI crew picked up on.

Hence why you get "games too easy" chat every single time the beta comes out, then silence from the same people when the full game comes out. Give them a few days to save and reload an unbeaten season so they can post in here to save face, though.

But three injuries in one week time.. With a broken ankle for Robertson..

Look at Hearts of Scotland in real life. Past few weeks they've lost their two starting centre halves, and top scorer, for over four months.
