I needed to update my graphics card driver. When doing so it reminded me that I needed a fix for the Windows 10 upgrade that left me unable to adjust the brightness on my screen. So facegen shows up again, but my brightness can't be adjusted. Should I submit a ticket? Do you guys have a workaround?

It sounds like the driver for your monitor may need updating as well, in addition to the graphics card, but it'd probably be best to check the manufacturer's website to be suret; they'd presumably know about any issues regarding Windows 10 and the monitor's brightness controls.

Thanks!

This change is horrible and makes the game utterly un-enjoyable. I used to watch all games but use "sim to period end" (except for very important ones) since otherwise the immersion aspect is gone and the game gets boring very fast, but now I cannot do this - if there is only one penalty, it is berable, but add a major penalty to each time coupled with a minor penalty for one of the teams and the sim speed slows to a crawl.

Please give us at least an option to not see the penalty box. Before this change the sim speed was just fine (I am used to playing Football Manager, compared to this game FHM2 is fast...)

I didn't think it'd be a big deal myself and thought the penalty box might be a cool idea, but now that I've seen it as well, it does slow the game down a lot. Is there no way to fix that so it doesn't bring the action to a crawl, or at least give the option to show the player info like before?

Working on it, something's definitely gone wrong there that should be fixable.

Award Images no Longer Appear

After updating to the latest version, the award images no longer appear. On the player profile screen, it just has the box with the number of times the award was won, but there is no award image.

Not sure if this is a bug or its just happening to me.

Update on the Penalty Box slowdown problem: Malte's found it and has a tentative fix, we'll be testing it soon. Assuming it tests out OK, It'll be in the next update, but no definite date for that yet.

I am seeing this with an older save. Fictional setup 24 teams - 2 conferences - 2 divisions in each.

This was OK before the latest patch (ver 2.3.19).

I had this too. I copied the award images from the quickstart award_pics folder to my saved game award_pics folder to fix that.

Its happening to me with an older save. I'm 2 seasons into a game and dont want to start over with each new update.

Actually, looking at Pwal's post it helped me to figure out the problem. Apparently, in older versions, the award photos were taken from the skin folder. Now, in the new version, the award photos are taken from an awards_pics folder within the graphics folder of your saved game folder. So all I did was add an awards_pics folder (with the awards pics in it) in my graphics folder of my saved game folder and everything is working fine now.

Aha. Looks like we need to add a step in the loading procedure for old saves that does that automatically if it isn't there.

Updating Boxscores

In previous posts it's been mentioned that in the boxscore, the scoring summary lists a player's total number of goals (or assists) on the season when that player is involved in a goal. The problem is that if a player scores multiple goals in a game, the total that is shown on each goal is the player's total as of the end of the game, rather than the total up to that point. The first screenshot below shows an example of this with P.K. Subban and also for John Tavares.

The consensus seemed to be that the totals should reflect the total up to the point at which the goal was scored. I have finally noticed that once one leaves the game, then goes back and looks at the report, the boxscore is revised such that on each scoring line, the player's total now shows his total up to that point, unlike what is shown in the boxscore during or at the end of a game. The second screenshot below, taken from the same game as the first screenshot, shows this for Subban and Tavares.

So now all that's needed is to use the same rule on updating these values in-game as the rule used in returning to a boxscore after leaving the game.

Unfortunately there isn't a driver update available. I'll have to live with no facegen and jerseys for now.

Is roster management going to be fixed in the next patch?Right now this game is no where near enjoyable for me as you can't play more than a season as it is pretty bloody pointless. Teams still can't develop players. One year a player wins an award and then .... you might see them in the minors the next. No one develops so you basically only trade for players that haven't been generated by the draft. teams still have too many players on their roster ... and still love to have those 18 and 19 year olds with ability of 2 or 2.5 .... not playing.

As I recall, you were seeing those types of problems in fictional leagues. We're continuing to work on improving the roster handling in those.
