  1. Iscout Fmm 2017

    Ok, so I've gone back into iScout after accepting the Job as West Ham Manager and I'm clearing out the staff thaI don't want and getting some top notch coaches, Scouts and Physios in but for some reason all of a sudden iScout isn't showing a majority of Staffs CA or PA. Almost everyone I check is coming up blank with that information. Do you have any idea why this would be happening? It was all fine before I took this new job and saved this game over a different slot (#1 as previous one when working was save slot #3).
  2. Iscout Fmm 2017

    Hey everyone, expecially to the blokes that make this page happen and help to make Football Manager 2017 the best Management sim ever. And I won't bang on too much because I'm managing Coventry after starting a save unemployed, got promoted from League 1 by coming 1st in my first season, won the Illustrious Checkatrade Trophy and now in Season 2 I'm 3rd in the Championship and defeated Liverpool 1-0 in the EFL Cup in the 93 minute. And I'm telling you, I spent almost an hour pre game selecting my team changing my formation from my usual 4-1-2-2-1 to a more defensive and conventional 4-2-2-1-1 to negate Klopps geggenpressing and getting the team tactics spot on for an epic upset. I unded up with 63% of the possession but only half the chances on goal. Without banging on, it was.a Managerial master stroke and I'm refussing job offers from Germany and Spain in order to bring Coventry back to the top flight. Anyway sorry, that's not why I'm here but please feel free to tell me your FMM2017 stories, I'd love to read them. I created this Topic because I just bought iScout FMM2017 for my Galaxy s6 and it is working great but I'll be buggered if I can find an explanation on the quite large discrepancies between certain attributes, what the abbreviated words PA, CA etc mean. I've figured it's probably Current Ability and Potental ability but I would love to watch a tutorial (which does not work through the app) or have someone please explain the nuances of this app and are the PA figures a lock on a players ceiling or is it an educated guess like the Scouts make. Also when you see the greyed out reserves players coming through, should you sign them all or just pick and choose based on their attribute levels and the age? The scouts never rate them when they first come in but out of about 40 that I've signed, kept and released, I have one that has a 4 star potential, but 1 out of 40 odd isn't great odds. I just sacked poor Steve Ogrizovich (my GK coach) in order to sign a youth coach, thinking this may help with the quality coming through. I only have 3 coaching spots to choose, will this effect my Goalkeepers ability, it is imperative to have s GK coach? My AM (Mike Newell) is Attacking, I signed Wes Brown as my Defensive and I have just got some bloke with a Silver badge as a youth coach. I'm hoping that with my skill set being General, I can cover the GK side of things, but we'll see and I'm keeping a close eye on it.. Our youth facilities at Coventry are "Good" but despite many requests the board aren't budging on improving them, tight asses. Sorry about all the questions but this has been what's on my mind relating to my game, would love to chat with anyone who can help me with my questions and I can give you some tips on how to get into the EFL Cup Semi Final with Coventry or anyone ?. Speaking of which, it's time for the 1st Leg against Man City at Etihad Stadium and being a Man United supporter, nothing would give me greater joy in masterminding the failure of another one of our most hated rivals. Cheers,.happy Managing. Nick.
  3. 5 Steps To Buying The Perfect Player

    Good on you for your first FM advice post, however it really is a read for novices that don't know what they are doing. A lot of the times players/Defenders with excellent positional attributes and decision making can be better than your stock standard Centre Half with 15+ Arial abiliry and 15+ Tackling ability. Temperament can make a huge difference, as can signing a player who will join your team if he has fellow countryman already there. Do they speak the Language? How will they adjust to a new Country? For example, of you were looking for a striker and used Balotelli's template, you'd be running a high risk, same goes for John Terry, he's the most hated man in Football but I bet you Jose Fonte is a better player overall. Only tust your Scouts and assistant manager if he's highly qualified, otherwise do what 90% of Manager's around the World do, trust your own judgement. After all, we are all figuring out how to be the best Football Manager individually and there are many ways to skin a cat.

  5. 2017 Tactic Kits

    So are we saying that once this Tactics pack for the strips has been downloaded, it will only apply to the team I am Managing and quite possibly effect all of my opponents strips to look like mine? I guess unless you go one by one copying each one at nauseum. There's so much improvement that this community is bringing to the FM Series that SI clearly don't give a rats ass about. Do they bother to read thks site and see the imput from die hard fans that make this Game 10x better than what they make it? I'm sure if we all can keep brainstorming we can come up with some more realistic and revolutionary improvements to this Mobile version of the game. I find it hard to believe that they couldn't have added more media/player/Manager interaction. Or how about having a training regime for players coming back from injury or being able to have input into their rehab. Why they couldn't add more filters to the Scout Assignments on Mobile has got me buggered. Instead of coming back with a niche type of player you're looling for, they come back with 100+ results, it's the complete opposite of what a Scouts job is. Also, why is there no sound during the game? I used to love listening to the crowd chant, cheer a goal or hear the whistle go, but it's total silence, apart from the sound of my roars as we go 1-0 up, it's like like crowd are all sat reading the Saturday Paper. Anyway, my rant is over for now until I think of more things to complain about, which is ironic seeing I played the game for 8 hours strait today, so it can't be that bad. I just wish SI and SEGA would put some more love and thought into something that can be truly epic, for FM2018 the main goal should be; 'How do we make this as realistic as Humanly possible". Include every nuance that a Football manager goes through so that the player is virtually completely immersed in the experience. I've got it!!! Virtual Reality Football Manager, you're wearing your headset about to play the first game of the season and your virtually pitch side, calling out or processing instructions as the game goes on, surrounded by your own fans or a dispising opposition. Calling out to refs for what should have been a foul or a Penalty, then after the game sit down and have press conference with the Media and be as smug or as nice as you like..VR is the future, AI is becoming exponentially more advanced, actually hold training sessions. This is doable now, with todays technology and I'd fork out $1000+ to play VR Football Manager. Why can't we get pictures of the youth players at teams like Coventry and other Championship and League 1 and 2 teams etc? It just takes away from the overall experience again and the pics lf the Coventry under 18's is online. Ok, now it's done! Nick

    Never mind lads, I've done it!!! Success. A simple restart of the phone, followed by a swift monthly sign up and a fast, non torrent download and then let Androzip do the rest. It's pretty easy once you do it, but if you're a bit IT illiterate you're worried you'll cock up something epic. Now it's time to start a new Career as an unemployed bum looking for a chance to prove himself. The difference the cosmetics makes is massive, that's why I like going into a Career unemployed, it makes it so realistic. Cheers for this awesome sight lads, enjoy your careers. Nick.

    Ok, so I've figured out what has happened. The file has unzipped in the Androzip folder, successfully. So the only problem I have now is trying to move it but it just won't let me. Maybe it's too large. Should I just delete it and re-download it? Thanks for your advice. Nick.
  8. 2017 Standard Faces Megapack

    Apologies if this is a stupid question but I have just downloaded your 3 updates for FMM. Thw Logos have definitely worked, as has the License update but I'm not sure if the "Faces" one has. Should I be seeing pictures of Premier League players or is that impossible because of Licensing? Cheers for your time. Nick Hi Kyle, I'm new to the site but have been a long time FM freak since the CM days and I'll be purchasing a membership because I think the work you guys do is outstanding. I have downloaded, unzipped and located all of your updates today and I'm certain Logo's and License are working fine, however I encountered an error when trying to install the Faces update. Should I be seeing Premier League player pictures or is that not possible due to licensing? Cheers mate, Nick.
