I have noticed another main stadium missing: Atlas' Jalisco, in Guadalajara, Mexico. A tip for the next update


There are a couple of changes files now available, the first includes the MLS and the second is a small one just for the Atlas picture.

Is it just when loading up the database at the start? If so its just because there is a lot to load, mine does the same though I've probably got a much lower spec PC than yours.

As long as the game is running fine then i wouldn't worry, though obviously can be annoying.

I stopped watching a few seasons back, just the same thing over and over. Amazes me how they still find food in date and fresh drinking water and also the seemingly endless supply of fags. And why does Rick spend 99% of his screen time now just staring into thin air

Just wondering what people's thoughts on the full game are now its been out a few days. Personally I've enjoyed the limited time I've been able to play so far, but it does seem slightly harder than before and i think the new squad dynamics has a big factor in that. Though I've never been great at the game so probably not the best person to be judging how hard it is. Plus injuries may happen a little much too often but that could just be my current game and not affecting anyone else.

I usually only really play in England so have all leagues loaded there, plus the top divisions from Spain, Germany, France etc. I also load all continental rep players from all Continents.

Nice one, so when you download the file which folder should this go into?


You have to double click on the file to open it and inside you will find the folder with all the pictures in. Move this folder to C:\Users\Name\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\graphics (you may need to make the folder called graphics yourself first).

Then in FM go to preferences, click on 'Clear Cache' and the 'Reload Skin' and the backgrounds will load up, you need to do this every time you add any new kits, logo's etc.

The backgrounds do not currently show on the 'Dark' skin but work fine on both the others.

It’s not the drivers...I’m running it on a Mac book pro ans the beta version was absolutely fine and had no issues...OS all up to date and running Sierra as in screen shot.


Ah ok, sadly i know zero about MAC's, have you posted on the SI Forum? https://community.sigames.com/forum/583-crashes-and-technical-issues-pc/

Try right clicking on the file and choose 'open with', then select UnrarX, though downloading Winrar or 7zip should sort it.

Try updating your drivers.

How to update my Graphics Card Drivers

The majority of graphics card websites have 'auto-checkers' which can scan your system and find the correct card. They can be found here for the following makes:

AMD/ATI - http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/pages/index.aspx
Intel - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/
Nvidia - http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

If you have the knowledge, we'd suggest using the manual download and install over the auto-checker, so if you know your exact graphics card make and the OS you are running, please enter in your details and find the latest drivers.

Bear in mind some laptops will have both Intel and an AMD or Nvidia driver, so remember to update them both when completing this process.

Once you’ve updated to the latest drivers and restarted your system you should be running the latest drivers available.

If you’re unsure about which card you have installed, please check your system manufacturers website.

Hi @VP. could you share with me how you do..... just a short how to from google map 3d to jpeg.....?


I'll try and do something in next couple of days, but you'll need to download the Google Earth program as you cannot save images on the web browser version.

@Rob is the site owner and administrator, he'll help you out as quickly as he again. Keep in mind he's in Australia at the moment, so he may take a wee while to answer due to the time difference and the fact he's probably snoring his head off.

As an aside, I see the OP's details have been updated to reflect his premium membership. Perhaps it takes a while to activate it...

What do you mean by load them?

Usually, i have saved the files into the relevant folders, once i have loaded the game, example, go to tactics, click the cog, load tactic and then it would appear, but for some reason, just not working this time around, which has sent me round the bend haha as i have done, what i believe to be, everything right, saved in correct files etc.


Yeah that was what i meant, and you're definitely looking at the correct folder in game when trying to load them (the one where the tactics are).
http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif -------- http://rs648.pbsrc.com/albums/uu204/JeWeL1980_photos/7505xjc54lf3np.gif~c200 -------- http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif
Don't you actually have to load them rather than just seeing them in a list on the game. Though I'm guessing you have tried this I just wasn't too sure.
http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif -------- http://rs648.pbsrc.com/albums/uu204/JeWeL1980_photos/7505xjc54lf3np.gif~c200 -------- http://www.liveonlineradio.net/wp-content/themes/Music_Covers/images/music2.gif
How does it like when you have a the tacticscreen or other screen at front of it.


I'm not at home so the only examples i have are these, but as has been said you can still see all text clearly.
