Football Manager 2020 Touch Pre-Release Beta *Official* Feedback Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi Lucas, thanks for replying again

I'm not trying to argue with you mate, but that's not what I'm seeing in game. I've loaded up a new save with Dulwich Hamlet. Playing FMT20, no mods or anything installed. I click on Player Search and filter by Listed for Loan and for players who are Interested in being loaned. I must have a couple of hundred players interested, but every single one of them requires a 100% wage contribution. I've tried offering the club a lower amount on dozens of examples, but it is rejected every time.

If you compare that to previous editions, there will always be dozens if not hundreds of players available for loan with no contribution

Changing skin colours literally doesn't work for me. It just ignores every colour I set.

The Pre-Release Beta is only available on Steam. To get it on your iPad you will have to wait for the full release of the game on the App Store. Do not buy the game from the website if you only want it on your iPad - the only way to get the game on iPad is from the App Store once the game is released.

Hi, if I download the early access FM20Touch version for my mac now, will I be able to continue the same save game on my iPad pro once the FM20Touch version for IOS is released?

Saves started on the Pre-Release Beta are very unlikely to be Cross-Sync compatible.

Thanks for letting us know - the new Preferences screen is pulling a lot of options from FM at the moment, including the customisable skin colourings. We'll look into making this fully available on the FMT skin as well but can't promise anything.

Why won't it let me manage Inter Miami? I can't even start in 2020 to do it :(

We prevent this in FMT in case newer users are confused as to why they don't have any matches for a season, but it's something we can raise for reconsideration and discussion again. The easiest way to manage them currently would be to start unemployed in MLS, holiday to the second season and then retire your manager and create a new one and take over Inter Miami then. Or just wait until they have a vacancy and apply in the normal way. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Although I've not really progressed past a couple of days, massive kudos to SI for bringing in the 3 main new additions for the full fat game into FMT this year. This will really spice up long term saves and have me playing this version a lot more than I did last year :thup:

Does the addition of the Development Centre also mean that there are more players in the Youth Intake in FMT20? That was always a slight blocker for me from going from full-fat to FMT in the past.

Haven't got to that stage yet but I don't think there will be. You still have just the senior team and reserve team/youth team set up instead of reserves, under 20s, under 18s like in full fat.

There might be a slight balancing issue with the frequency of headed attacking chances in the ME. Most of my chances seem to come from crosses. Certainly in my first league match my team scored 3 goals, all from headed chances. Could be a one off, so will look further at this.

Thanks for the feedback - please direct any Match Engine issues or feedback to the relevant FM Match Engine forums as FMT and FM share the same ME.

No scope for expanding leagues/countries again :(

Can you elaborate on this please? Do you mean you can't add or remove new leagues once you've started a game?

I downloaded the beta noticed the gameplay was kind of choppy so I turned off Retina Display like I did with FM19 and now I can't click on any of the menus. I've tried restarting the game and laptop and nothing happens. I'm playing on a 2015 MacBook Pro with the new OS 

Thanks, this is something we're aware of and working on - keep an eye on the Technical Issues subforum for any updates.

 

On 01/11/2019 at 09:27, DavyDepuydt1 said:

Any reason why "selection advice" was not implemented in FM Touch? seems like a feature that very much matches the FMT scene...
Also very handy with the new "Playing Time" to get some advice on when you might want to start a certain player. (like in a cup match a cup goalkeeper)

It wasn't something we could add to FMT this year (most of the advice it gives isn't generated in FMT) but it's one we're looking into for the future.

 

On 01/11/2019 at 09:49, DavyDepuydt1 said:

same as with the email to make players available for reserves before every reserve match. just like above a QOL thingie that really matches the FMT philosophy but is lacking here

We'll look into why this inbox item isn't getting sent currently.

 

On 01/11/2019 at 17:22, rafaelbenitez said:

1. It would be cool to have the club culture section at the bottom of the team selection screen when starting a new game. This really helps in the full game as a preview so you don't take a job that has a philosophy that doesn't interest you.

Good point, we'll look into whether we can add this (but can't make any promises).

 

On 01/11/2019 at 17:22, rafaelbenitez said:

2. Club culture objectives in FMT are a little limited when compared to the full game. For example as Porto, in the full game you have to "sign players from domestic rivals", play "attacking football" and develop players using the club's youth system. However, in FMT it's just limited to playing attacking football.

3. In the full game when I've offered a contract to a player, you're required to set their playing pathway for the duration of their contract before proceeding to the actual negotiations. However, this doesn't seem to be possible in FMT. You only seem to be able to adjust the playing time just the once. So, for example, for a 3 year contract that I offer to a youngster, I can set future prospect -> breakthrough prospect -> squad player in the full game. However, if I were to offer a contract to a player in FMT, I'd only be able to set him as a future prospect and that will remain for the entire 3 years unless I manually change it. Not sure if this is meant to be by design.

Both of these are by design, to keep the FMT experience more streamlined.

Got one question on FMT...I always moved matches on TV to be played on Sat / Wed. I can't seem to find this option any more. Has this been removed from this year's FM?

Thanks, we'll look into why this isn't in the new Preferences.

This depends a little bit on the leagues you have loaded, the team you're managing and your DB size. There's now a minimum intake size (at least 4 per intake) which means you probably won't see too much difference for big nation/database setups, but you may see a difference in smaller nation/database setups which might have had smaller intakes previously. We would be interested in feedback on the size of intakes you're getting, and definitely let us know if you ever have fewer than 4 newgens in an intake as that'll be a bug!

Thanks for the response Alex. It would be cool if those additional club culture objectives could be incorporated into FMT as that would add to the challenge!

Also, I'm unable to see the international goals scored by a player. This is not available in the player profile screen nor the information screen. Player profile screen merely shows the number of caps.

Thanks for answer, @Alex Pitt. I'll (probably) only be on Switch this year. That version "only" comes with the 3 nations maximum, if I'm not mistaken. I'll be sure to keep the above in mind once I get started though. I can deal with 4, or more, newgens each Youth Intake.

Yeah, I think having the full array of club objectives is better than having it streamlined. It adds more depth to the game without it being more time consuming, which I believe is what FMT possibly needs more of.

Hard to see here, but why won't the game use more of my GPU and CPU? It's on an SSD too, I have a 144hz monitor, so I'd like more frames lol

Or is the game capped to 60 fps?

Hi,

I would like to know if there is an improvement of the youth intake? In the past I wasn't able to get a proper youth intake in every version of FMT. Even when I play with more then 3 leagues.

Thank you very much. All the big new features are there. And it looks almost identical to the full FM.

 

Constructive Feedback to SI:

It would be really great to get at least some screenshots of FMT for those interested and not wait until the tablet/switch versions come out to market it. There is a lot of people who play FMT on the PC and without going into the Beta would have no idea how it looks or will work in FMT. Saying that probably most features will carry over does not really help because (a) we don't know which, and (b) we don't know how. We have this forum here and in the announcement thread you could post some pics or a short video or something. That would be great and go a long way to help those that this is marketed for: who don't really have much time or want a less complicated experience. <--- this right here means, those people won't necessarily go to various social media or have time to try it out. Some screenshots or idea of the game would go a long way, I think, also to show that they aren't forgotten (which I am sure you haven't but it appears to be so).

I second this, a simple overview comparing features between "regular" and "touch" would be so helpful and should really not be too complicated to put together.

Hi Alex Pitt. I've downloaded the latest update a few minutes ago and can confirm that this is still happening. In my bug report that I submitted a few days back I expanded on this a bit further: I've loaded up new games with a number of clubs in different leagues in England. For every club, every single player that is available for loan requires the 100% wage contribution, so it isn't anything specific to using Dulwich Hamlet. If I can help provide any more information, I'm happy to do so. Thanks for your time mate

‘Create a club mode’ FMT 2020 ...

Hi there (apologies originally not attached to the right thread),

A couple of observations that I have noticed and was also a problem on FMT 19, with the ‘create a club’ mode.

1) When you select a club and set up and affiliation, select the option saying same kits, it does not kick in ‘in-game.’

2) Same as above, when you mention ‘share the same board.’ Still shows the old Chairman of the old club you have replaced. That is even with the keep old staff unticked.

3) There is still an issue with using a created logo/badge on ‘create a club.’ It does not port across with a transparent background, it comes in a box, usually with a white border. That is even happening when I created the badge using Gimp and gave it the proper size and transparency setting.

4) The small badge (as seen in the league table) does not size correctly and looks weird. 

It would be good if you could alter the team border colours for the screens, without having to create a new kit to do so. I used a created 3D kit, which worked in-game but it kept the base colours the same of the club I had replaced. If I had started to alter the club background colours, it made the 3D imported kits not useable.

These are just a few observations that I have noticed whilst playing the ‘create a club mode.’ Playing this mode, is mainly borne out of wanting to manage a USL team (New Mexico Utd) but the USL isn’t a playable database at this precise moment.

 

Thanks for any responses provided.

I saw this on another thread and wanted to get confirmation directly from SI.

If I buy full FM do you get Touch for free for FM20?

I haven't bought FM recently because I primarily play touch, but I really want an editor to be able to add leagues, but if I get it free with Full FM then it is something for me to consider.

Cheers!

The thinking was to not overly restrict an FMT user in terms of how they go about managing their club, and to not give a manager too many things they have to keep thinking about and checking back on which could distract from the core gameplay elements, but it's something we're very open to having feedback from our players on and discussing for the future so we appreciate it.

There have been some nice improvements to intakes this year I hope you'll enjoy - there's now a minimum intake size of 4, you get a preview of the intake's strengths and weaknesses in advance, and they now come in as triallists and are shown in the Youth Candidates section of the Development Centre, so it saves you having to manually release the candidates you don't want (don't forget to sign the good ones though!).

Have they implemented the two automatic relegation/promotion places in the Eredivisie & Keukon Kampioen Divisie?

Big match engine update ahead of the official release. Has certainly resolved a couple of standout issues from the original Beta release, not least the overuse of switches of play from flank to flank.

Yep. In Steam if you select FM20 Touch, right-click, select Properties, Beta tab then set it to "public".

I really should have read the Brexit work permit page when it came up. Have managed to spend £60m on Timo Werner and I have to wait 120 days to appeal for a permit after the initial submission failed :rolleyes:

What are the rules BTW? :D

Looks like he isn't being picked for Germany so I assume that's a big no-no. He's vastly superior to my other attacking options but if there are criteria relating to being a current international in X of the last Y matches, I'm screwed!

 

EDIT. Found the news item in my inbox. It's odd actually. He's earning above the salary stipulated in there, and nothing explicitly refers to international appearances. Hmm.
