      UPDATE 13.2 RELEASED for Football Manager 2013

      I’m very pleased to be able to announce the latest update for Football Manager 2013, 13.2 is now available. As always the update is save game compatible allowing you to continue your current save game, and we’ve provided a change list below.

      To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.


      Once updated the version number will be 13.2, more specifically the full version numbers are listed below:

      PC: 341019
      Mac: 341027

      As with the previous updates there are no database changes, if you start a new game the database number will remain 13.0.0.

      Also please bear in mind the two new challenges available for FMC mode will not immediately appear in the store as this may take around half an hour due to our product’s cache. You will also need to exit and re-enter the store to update the catalogue after this time.

      So on behalf of everyone at Sports Interactive I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays and we hope you continue to enjoy Football Manager 2013 long into the New Year!

  2. Lovely

  3. Mach Engine updates

  4. sweet, just logged on to steam

    Seems to be loads of tweaks to the match engine which should silence the moaners for a good 15 minutes until they lose a game.

  8. Well, I was losing 2-1 to Blackburn with Aston Villa when I had a ...crash shall we say... and after the update I won 1-5...

    However, I also got a shitload of new news messages from my subscriptions I never had before, about clashes between teams in the Jupiler League frex "Easy win predicted for SC Veendam" which I never got before, just more generic high level news items.

  9. Happy!

  10. yeah I'm getting 50 e-mails a day about predictions for every match in every league...anyone figured out how to fix this yet?

    Just unsubscribe from it on the right.

    Played my first 3 games, won one 4-0 away at Sunderland with 3 goals from set pieces, then lost 4-0 at home to Chelsea with 3 goals from set pieces and one absolute belter of a goalkeeping error (very basic handling error). Has anyone else noticed anything similar with lots of goals from set pieces?

    It wasn't very well known, I wouldn't know about it if I hadn't looked in the SI bugs forum but you could accept the demands of a club and then go onto change transfer offer set it to £0 but then not press the make new offer button.

    IMO, set pieces where underrated in the previous patch. I only had 3 free kicks resulting on a goal, in 55 games!! And corners, i had 11 goals, 1st post routine with Vidic. Without Vidic, zero!

    Now (don't have installed patch, still at work) i aim for the 2nd post and i don't get nothing, it's ridiculous!

    If they are as you say, then we have to give it more time in training.

    When you accept, you say, which as no logic, since we want the money! What kind of exploit is that?

    What do you mean? Here's how someone did it step-by-step:
    1. Make offer for player
    2. Get other team negotiating
    3. When they get back to you press 'Accept Demands'
    4. Then you press change transfer offer
    5. Put initial fee to £0 and remove all clauses
    6. Exit screen

    I have to say how that worked I don't know.

  19. I am reasonably pleased with the ME now...the flow of the game seems so much better!
    Three things though...
    I lost two an drew one
    My keeper is now throwing himself at EVERYTHING! Doesnt seem to matter how far the shot is going wide, he still does a "brilliant save to tip it round the post".
    When the oppositions winger/wide player has the ball near my touchline..all hell breaks loose in my defense! On four or so occasions my CB's, LB CM an anchorman have tried to close him down (which kinda ends up lookin like a chase scene from Benny Hill or abit like the conga dance) leaving 1 FB in the middle to mark 3 or 4 players lol
    Anyone else notice this? It may well be my tactics need a little tweakin to compensate, as this never happened before.

    Other than that..it seems an excellent step towards a great ME

    Can you post the video?

  21. I hope the issue is fixed regarding not being able to get a feeder club to boost rep in another country. I just won the Champions League with Hearts in 2020 and had this rejected twice every season. Just asked for it again... We'll see what happens...

  22. Dont know if to be happy or sad about this patch, it seems good on paper but i just played a match where i was losing and my keeper decides to go crazy. He travels with the ball on his feets towards the middle line and almost gets to it then he passes to the enemy striker who luckily failed his half pitch shot, i ended up winning the match but this made me tear my hair out... literally... maybe i need a small break from this game until they finish patching it. Also while typing this i remembered another happening in previous match where one of my players was traveling with the ball and then passes 2 meters ahead of him to no one and forgot the ball was there, basically giving them the possession for no good reason at all

    UPDATE 13.2 RELEASED for Football Manager 2013-portsmouth-v-truro_-pitch-full.png

    OK..it doesnt look as bad as i remember it, but still 4 players to close him down!
    Knox is my RB..the 4 players closing down are my 2 CB's, anchor an LB.
    I could understand the LCB going to help out, an maybe the anchor...but both CB's. This did happen a few times, but believe it or not this is the only time i conceded! They got lucky

    Hehe, same here. You can unsubscribe on the right but hopefully that doesn't remove all relevant mails from that league/cup as I like it the way it was but getting predictions for every match for all leagues I'm subscribed to is a bit too much.

  27. Since my update the game won't run for me. Anyone else having issues?

  28. Just noticed thought would start new save wnt onto search list for players and found coentrao,varane,thiago,luiz,kroos,ramires,wilshere ,chambelain all there and will to discuss terms for contract and prices are bargains to!!!!!!

  29. My tactics better still f*****g work!

    Yeah I agree for sure. I noticed first up that my free kicker taker could suddenly hit the target, but it wasn't direct free kick goals that were going in. It was ones from too far away where it was coming into the middle of the box, the keeper in poor position and the attacker scoring with a header. It was going for and against me so it's not a complaint as much as I'm wondering if anyone else found this. 4 free kicks and two long throws out of the 8 goals in two games, I've tried changing my defensive set pieces marking system to see if it's something tactical I need to look at now.

  31. Wilshere (free kick attribute of 10) just scored 2 free kicks in 3 games for me... Before I'd be lucky to score from 1 free kick for all of 3 seasons with free kick 15+. Perhaps this is just luck, but I might consider getting good free kick takers now.

  32. Since the update, player profile screens are not showing up in the same way as before.

    UPDATE 13.2 RELEASED for Football Manager 2013-2012-12-19_00001.jpg

    Before the update, I had the full number of panels available, now just the 7 shown above. I've tried changing various setting in interface preferences but nothing yet (and haven't had any luck looking elsewhere). Any suggestions?

    EDIT: Oh, and I should add that other screens where it automatically changes depending on screen size / resolution (such as the manager home screen) do seem to work still.

  33. My network game just crashed after 2 games... x_x

  34. It seems to me that some graphics changed.

  35. First game on the new patch, Man Utd at home vs Swansea. 28 shots (possibly my most with this tactic I've made) 9 clear cut chances (again probably my most) 57% possession (normally around 50 sometimes below) 87% pass completion (with this tactic it's normally 70-82) but only the 5 goals lol. If the patch continues this way, I'll love it!

    I've had the complete opposite, in my first 3 games on the new patch I've had almost 70 attempts on goal across all matches, I've scored 3 goals.....

    I was getting annoyed because my players were missing clear cut chances (a lot of them) and scoring the harder chances.

    Also not impressed with defending. Just played my 2nd game. Scored 9 goals in 2 games, but conceded 5. 2 to Swansea 3 to Wolves... Still won both games but it's a bit ridiculous!

  40. Playing as Newcastle, I'd gone 14 games unbeaten from the start on the season. Worked hard to create some decent tactics for myself. I logged on this evening to see the new update; I played one game, Man utd and lost 7 bloody nil
    I have never complained about this game as I love football and FM. But 7 nil
    I'd beaten Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal with my tactics and then...well you get the picture

  41. These new match updates are nice. Very nice.

    You are not the only one mate. I am having same problem. Mine is slightly better but still its a bug. My CB decides to go out of position on the Wings to help out my Full back even when I can clearly see that my FB has got it covered. He is one on one with the opposition attacker, My CB does not care. He just goes out of position anyway and sometimes when the opposition attacker manages to put in a successful cross, I concede an easy goal because my near post CB is not there any more.

    First I thought maybe the new patch messed up closing down on my CBs but it is the same as before and I have even tried reducing their Closing down instructions. Still CBs keep going out of position to the wings to join their mate Mr FBs for no reason.

    yeah mate..im noticing it in more positions now (CB's), im thinkin maybe my 2 CB's are in love..their never more than 5 yards away from each other, which is good..until one decides he wants to close down one of their fullbacks on the halfway line an the pair of them are more forward than my midfield! its like the blind leadin the blind lol

    Im happy theyve sorted out the defending though (no other probs than the one above), but for me theyve done it too well an the forwards seem to be nerf'd...well on my save anyways they seem to really struggle to find space an also cant hit a barn door!
    Pass accuracy seems alot better, meanin crap passers of the ball stand out more now..which probs means decisions mean more in the ME.
    Overall so far im impressed with what SI have managed this update..but it seems to me theres a few new created problems.

    One thing that does spin me out, how is it possible for some players to have certain problems, an others have completely different ones? strange

  47. the update didnt fix any of the most obvious bugs, i still get a gamebreaking bug every game, although it's different every time now, but still at the same frequency. a lot of tactics simply do not have any effect, and there are still lot of player/ball interactions, or rather lack of. ive been putting the game on hold for last month hoping for a playable patch, looks like i might have to bin it for another 3 months, maybe then it will be playable without me having to ctrol atl del in rage over some fucking stupid ME bug

  48. why is my goal keeper flying round his area like superman? trying to save everything even when the ball is clearly going wide ? none of my tactics work properly now id finally managed to get one working not perfect but it was almost there now it seems yet again its back to the drawing board

  49. just crashed twice in exactly the same spot...

  50. and the game still feckin crashes so that hasnt worked has it?
