    This is the best facepack I think
    It does look pretty good, but they appear to have made actually downloading it a right pain :(

    (08 version, soz)

    Odd thing. Managing Motril, a tiny Spanish club, in Second Division B4. I'm in 6th, near the end of the season. Need to be in 4th for Promotion chance. Could do it.

    Yet my rep is continental. WHAT? I'm being mooted, in the media, as possible management material at Aachen, Cadiz, Seville, Bochum, Werder Bremen, Porto, Sporting, and incredibly, Man Utd.

    ..?!?!?!

    What did you set as yr past experience? Was that even in the 08 version?
  • Deleted user 16 February 2012 00:14:56
    Ohhh yeah. I think I was... um, a prof footballer. But Motril. 6th. Really?

    Just about to start season 6 with Everton (one euro cup and 2 back to back fa cups plus a 3rd place spot in the league last year due to investing heavily in awsome youth) and a bombshell hits.

    Barcalona offer me their job with a transfer pot of 240 million and space in the monthly wage bill of over 11 million.

    Not sure what step to make....

    Take the Barca job and sign Ross Barkley for 150m. That way you won't feel guilty about jumping a clearly sinking ship.

    Make a new save, to mix things up. I had steered Rochdale into the prem on fm10, AC Milan offered me the job outright after sacking Van Basten. Rude not to make a new save file.

    I've decided (after hiving off a save just in case) to reject Barca and stay with Everton partly for the reasons a few of you have suggested (we haven't won the prem yet, I want to bring on my amazing youth, I don't want to watch the AI destroy my work) but also because the red and blue of Barcelona clash so violently along the top of the screen that I fear migraines permanent mental damage :)

    It's a bit worrying when your 16 year old striker does the baby-cradling celebration after scoring a goal.

    Maybe if you'll play long enough you get to see his son in action....

    I'm hoping that FM13 has an option to just sign players, sort out the tactics and play games, CM0102 style. As good as FM12 is, I found it more fun blasting through a season in a night in the days of yore. I don't really want to bother arguing with players or press.

    Totally agree with this. I've wasted 30 on the game, I simply can't get past the friendlies stage in season 1 with any team I pick now. Wycombe was a blast for a few hrs when I first got the game, but the game's micro management is dreadful and an absolute chore. Won't buy it again. The CM2 interface and gameplay works best for me.

    I guess because I was playing it on April 1st and it was April 1st in game.

    In my news bit it said "The board wish to grant you 500m for a new stadium and to bolster the squad. Please click on Accept to confirm you want this bonus". Then when you click Accept a box pops up saying "You didn't think we'd make it that easy for you, did you?"

    Bastards!

    So I'm in the first season of a "start unemployed", LLaMa game. I take the first job offer I get, which is Droylsden, 19th in the BSN.

    So far, it's played 8, won 5, drawn 2 and lost 1. Scored 9, conceded 4. I've just beaten Southport from the BSP to get into the first round proper of the FA cup.

    "The fans are slightly concerned that despite the good recent results the football played by the club has been less than exciting"

    What more do they want? FFS!

    Carlos Fierro is a fucking goal machine. Sign him up. All of you.

    Feb 2018 in my current game (190 hours!) and he is currently 23, playing for Inter and worth 19m. If I was starting again with a few pennies to spend I might well nab him as he has a pretty decent scoring record and average rating in the current season of about 7.4.

    He isn't as good as my 21 yr old German striker though (who I've had since he was 16) Senad Kukic, but I think he's a regen so unique. He was the highest scoring player last year in the prem netting 38 out of 27 games. I spend big when they are young - he cost me 16.5m, more than his age.

    I just spent 20m on a new 16yr old. In 100 hours or so I be able to tell if it was worth it. Actually if it wasn't he'll probably have been sold on by then to cut my loss.

    This FM is the best yet I reckon. Not perfect of course but definitely the best game to play when the TV is on...

    So I have the Bundesliga and the premier league as my active leagues, yet it seems I can't apply to jobs in the premier league, or even check their job security.

    Any idea of how to change that/whats happening?

    Bump.

    Sorry but this is really annoying and I've been googling it for ages with no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

    Go to the job security screen and click the filters bit at the side and change it to all countries or whatever. I had to do it when I changed from Scotland and England to England and Spain. That's how I got from Hamilton to Real Madrid in 6 seasons.

    Returning to the series after 6 years out.

    I downloaded the yaaaar copy to see if I had the itch again, turns out I did. However after a few game time months I started getting random crashdump errors. Then for some reason the GPU usage goes up to 100% on the 3D match engine screen (it normally sits around 20%) forcing it down to low settings.

    Brushed it off thinking it was just a crappy warez version so I bought it on Steam earlier than planned.

    Just hit January, exact same fucking problem.

    Anyone else experiencing this here? I've done a little bit of searching around but the general level of computer intelligence for the userbase is pretty low (graphics problem = my player pictures!), so the minefield of retardisms on the forums are normally covered in "turn your PC off and on again" tech support.
