Another major issue I should have added to my previous post after the calamitous 24.2 update. Beyond us having to modify regen files and players displaying wrong hair colour and style, is the disgrace of many black players now displaying as white. That's not only insulting but damn near racist. How can Si let this go unnoticed by them and not immediately correct such a basic error. As I said before, after no such issues with FM23, it was so disappointing to see Si are back to the old days of releasing an “improvement” that breaks other areas of the game. Equally as bad, seemingly no-one at Si HQ spots such fundamental errors before any patch is released !!!

It is truly annoying. It's a known fact that real-llfe players play FIFA/CM. The odds are many of those are black, so I can only imagine how they felt when now they appear white in FM. Still love your humour though, buddy !

I so wish Mbappe, Rashford, Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Jr. and many other non-white high-profile players got in touch with Miles and asked him what the flipping heck is going on. 🙂 Perhaps that would make SI actually take the matter seriously, hurry up and fix things.

Anyone else's Homegrown status not showing properly on their players screen? It also isn't tracking on the players screen either.

 

they are still becoming homegrown and it is tracking on the squad but in the individual player screen, it isn't adding when they have become homegrown club or tracking when they will become homegrown.

I would love that to happen, buddy. In my Palace save, Olise, Eze, Edouard and even Zaha at Galatasaray are just some of those, now turned white. I'm staggered there has been no response from Si, so far !

Why is it not, it’s highly disrespectful to the affected players.

 

sI really are shambolic and don’t care what rubbish they turn out

 

would anybody buy the base game if it was not capable of 3rd party improvement?

Calling this somehow racist devalues what racism actually is, it is literally a Karen moment when you are demanding to see a manager.

If the game turned white players into black players would you be here crying racism?
If the game turned blonde haired players into redheads would you be here crying racism? 

Yes they clearly made a mistake, but anyone calling it racism is a bloody idiot.

According to SI themselves to solve the problem of black players being white is to watch live another team other than your own and then the players will revert back to their original skin colour. But I agree SI are just a joke these days with updates ruining games you had been in for hours!

I said “damn near racist” because it's clearly a screw up by Si. An apology and a hotfix is the very least to demand from them.

Well you've got the hotfix it seems

And no, they are not going to apologise because you think everything is racist.

Because I don't belittle actually racism by claiming a bug is somehow racist?

Sorry you are so insecure you need to white knight everything with cries of racism.

It looks like it's been fixed though, so you should be happy racism has been defeated

Does anyone know if the new update has fixed the NewGen Faces problem we were all having?

Ok, so Si has sorted the player skin and hair colour issue and rightly so. The concern is that such a serious issue as skin colour was not recognised before 24.2 was issued and there was no reaction whatsoever after release, despite me posting on their forum and getting a number of “likes”. They simply issued the hotfix without a hint of an apology.

Guys, please tell me.
Here’s my situation: after a loss in a friendly match, I told the players in the locker room that they played poorly and they need to play better in official matches. One of the leaders expressed dissatisfaction and was supported by 17 people. This is half the trouble, the most interesting thing began later: when this leader calmed down and said that he was no longer worried, these 17 people in turn began to express dissatisfaction with the same thing (about a week of playing time each from the list) The question is this: as I understand it Is this a bug, was it fixed in the patches that were already released, or was it just me who got lucky?

And another question. I can’t find how to fine for bad play, it used to be in the conversation with the player/criticism of the player tab (about the same place as criticism of training and behavior), so maybe it was moved somewhere and I just can’t find it, or this function was removed, does anyone know?

Yep, it's pathetic. They were either too embarrassed to apologise or simply didn't care about such a fundamental cock up. In the changelist they simply wrote and I quote: “Fixed a problem where all players appeared to look the same in game”. No specific mention or an apology with the skin colour mistake. Pitiful. At least now two of my black buddies, who are FM nutters like us, feel a very wrong has been righted.

FFS they are not going to apologise for making ALL players look the same, regardless of whether they were black, white, yellow or purple.

They probably didn't realise they were going to have to deal with a woke idiot who takes offense to everything

Lose your keys, racism
Picture falls off the wall, racism
Use an entire roll of toilet paper in one day, racism

My god man, how do you cope on this planet when it is clear you are so insecure?
