Football Manager 2013: Leeds United 2015 Gone Corrupt

My Leeds United FMC career has totally went corrupt and won’t load. Has the XML error or whatever it’s called again. Finally when I achieved the European Cup and entered the hall of fame my game goes corrupt. It always happens to me with Football Manager saved games. Even in the past it has done the same.

My saved games never go more than 5 seasons until all my hard work is just erased somehow. Stupid steam. I had closed the game after saving and not in between. Then I closed steam after it finished syncing to the club, computer shut down later.

Have to start all over again with a new team. Very disappointing!


Young Team Scenario

I have planned to create a custom scenario from editing the database and choosing a lower league team. This team has been recently purchased by a rich successful person and with the resources several young players have been bought. These players are the future of the club and are expected to ensure several promotions through the lower leagues and be competent in the premier league when they are finally mature.

Below are some screenshots of what the team looks like at the beginning of this scenario that I have created myself. These players may seem the best but they have not reached their potential and have very low attributes.

This screenshot below should help indicate that even with the mass amount of talent I have available I still have no advantage and the teams overall rating seems fair with the league. The players will become great but at the moment they are only competent in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Not playing this scenario anymore as it had many problems. I will blog a new post regarding the new scenario which has been a success so far and a better experience.

Angry at Football Manager 2012

A previous blog post related to this game stated that I would be attempting to take Shrewsbury Town to the Barcalys Premier League. I now wanted to share with everyone that I won’t be achieving any personal targets I had set because somehow the saved game file does not load anymore. I was playing it last night and had saved it and now nothing loads up. I am very angry because this has never happened before and I had put a lot of effort in making this team a good competitive team with loanees and free transfers.

I felt my heart sink when it did not load. Now I have to start again. I may just start a new challenge with a new team.
