I can’t play fifa 18 since they did the World Cup update. Not the World Cup bit or any other part of the game. I just get an errror message? Does anyone know of a fix for this?

@Baldspur Sorry to hear that. I had the same problem earlier but strangely something happened and now my game works again. Some people said that you delete your data file then it should work. But be careful because to my understanding deleting that file you would lose all your progress in different modes.

FIFA '18 updated again for me last week. Monday if I recall correctly. So maybe they patched the update?

Not had the heart to try the WC mode yet though. Can't risk my Manager Mode save.

So after the latest update you can now do video capture! Why didn't they tellus this? Now you can save those sweet replays. Ooft.

@rotorooter Good to know, thanks
Haven't played FIFA for months now, but this is enough incentive to get me back into it.

Just picked this up now it's Β£12 on the eshop. My first FIFA and I'm enjoying it so far, but it throws you in the deep end a bit - I miss manuals!

Could you chaps maybe help me out and answer a few silly questions?

I'm in career mode (just controlling my player, not the team), won the pre-season friendly but when I started the league all of a sudden my team is playing towards the goal at the bottom of the screen. I can't see my player!

None of the settings will change to playing up the screen, like in the pre-season tournament. How do I change this? What am I missing?

Oh - and how do I do a chip shot when shooting on goal?

Okies, switched (no pun intended) it off and back on and the camera has reset.

@rotorooter Thanks for the heads-up. Booted the game back up last night to try it out πŸ‘

@Mii_duck Finesse shots - Hold R while shooting. Chip shots - Hold L while shooting.

Also look up the basic skill moves. The roll-over move is easy to learn and often allows you to create a space between you and the last defender to get a shot on goal.

@Mii_duck I think you can switch camera centring in game from ball to player and vice versa with the minus button when you're in 'be a pro' mode. I remember it was select on PS which is mapped to minus on switch. Let me know if it works.

@Lroy and @toiletduck - thank you for your replies, I'll give all that a try.

More practice needed to get the 'knack' of the controls I think, which I guess is the point.

Mii_duck

Mii_duck

Ha! Penalty and a hat-trick in free play... dropped for the next game with the manager saying I'm not productive enough.

Harsh I feel, a tad harsh.

@Mii_duck Don't read if you want to be surprised, but the 'be a pro'-mode (or whatever that mode is named currently) is programmed so that it follows a certain set of 'rules'. First you play an occasional game, after a few games you'll be starting 11, then a bit further down the line you'll be captain (all assuming that you keep scoring and achieve your goals). It's also likely that you won't start in your favorite position, but later you will play that position.

So don't take it personal

Haven't played this game since the World Cup update launched and the suggestions that the update might corrupt save data, wanted to wait for a patch.

Updated today though and all went fine. I needed a dummy game to get me back into the swing of things - every time the opposition attacked in the dummy game they scored, but I won the next two games and went top of the League (Calcio A, World Class).

Played some more tonight, thinking I'd go on a romp to the title, but my lack of defensive sharpness showed and I drew the next game before losing 2-0 to AC Milan - fairly even game but for the brilliance of Bonaventura scoring both goals. Back down to 3rd in the table.

But happy to be back in the game and delighted with the video capture addition as it was always my biggest gripe that there was no replay save facility. Now I'm saving pretty much every goal I score

Jamie Vardy is beginning to become a bit of the club talisman I hoped he would be when I signed him. He's currently 2nd top scorer in the league, but also at the top of the assists table.

@Lroy I see you've continued chalking up the hours, how you been getting on?

@gcunit Indeed. Proper been pulled back into my FIFA 18 career adventures recently. I think I left off before the World Cup was on, having taken over the reins at a fallen from grace Manchester City side.

After a bit of rebuilding, I managed to finally win the Premiership in my new surroundings (think that was 7 seasons into career mode) and even went an entire season unbeaten in the league. Clearly, cutting my teeth with Northampton Town and getting them all the way up the leagues and qualifying for the Champions League paid off.

Was happy to see that Northampton hadn't instantly collapsed after my departure although they are now perennial relegation survival battlers without me at the helm.

Anyway, having gone back to the game, I decided to take a break from my Man City save - I do intend to go back and win the Champions League with my squad which boasts the likes of Dele Alli, Leroy Sane and Marcus Rashford all into the 90s rankings. So instead...

I've stated a new career save file - this time on World Class difficulty - and taken charge of LUTON TOWN. Yep, gone right back to the beginning and will attempt to take this side from English Football League Two to Champions League glory. Yes, you read that right, my ambition is to stick with this same club all the way through the manager Mode's 15 seasons and see how much success I can achieve.

I'm currently 5 games away from the end of my first season. Playing 5 minute matches. I'm currently leading the pack in League Two but it's very close, any from about 6 teams could still win automatic promotion.

I've invested what little cash I had from the board into setting up my Youth Academy and have already developed and blooded four or five youngsters and promoted them to my senior squad. I did ask the board in January for some extra cash but they refused, alas I had to sell my most valuable asset - my number 1 choice GK Marek Stech (sp?) for 725, 000 to Bristol Rovers - in order to raise the funds required to continue expanding my Youth Academy with additional scouts as well as cover the new contracts and wages my growing squad demanded.

No other notable activity in the transfer market, in terms of bringing players in - I already had a couple of players loaned to me by default when the season began. Both have made positive contributions to my team and will be missed from my starting eleven whenever they get recalled. But I have managed to snag a couple of promising youngsters on Free Transfers to ensure I've a healthy number of players available to chose from each week.

Will let you know how things progress. Basically, making the best use of the players that already come with Luton Town for now.

Over the transition from Season 1 to Season 2, I'll hopefully offload some of the fringe default Luton players that I don't see making the grade for me. A promising keeper from the Youth Academy or the transfer market will likely by my main rebuilding priority next season along with any proven goal scorer I can tempt to join me at the Hatters.

@Lroy Sounds very tempting, I always preferred starting at the bottom of the ladder in Football Manager. But Luton... sheesh

But I feel deeply that Fiorentina and I are inseparable. For now at least, but you rattle through the seasons a lot faster than I do, so I'll have to see how I feel in a couple more seasons when some of my key players are past their best. I'm not big on the planning front, so I might find it hard to bring on younger players that I'll feel an attachment to to keep me interested.

Well I didn't see that coming. A couple of games after my last post above we entered the January transfer window and I received offers for my two Brazilian youngsters that I'd been developing from the start of my first season at Fiorentina - Leandrinho and Nathan - both regular starting eleven players, and Nathan was quality and my second to scorer.

I made the same mistake as I did the year before in not giving it too much thought and suggesting a hefty increase to the price for each player.

Lo and behold a couple of days later I've got a massive hole in my squad as Leandrinho joined Burnley for 30 million and Nathan joined Bayern Munich for 40 million.

Didn't mind letting Leandrinho go, as his performances rarely lived up to what he showed when I first signed him, but I really did not want to sell Nathan

I took the money made and bought Raheem Sterling for about 32 million and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for 16 million, plus a couple of young strikers to develop.

Well, it's starting to gell now... Career mode, just controlling 'me' and in 34 matches I've scored 65 goals for Mansfield Town. Got a call up to play for England in a friendly and put five past Mexico in a 13-0 drubbing.

So, not an entirely realistic game...

Anyway - in career mode, do other teams come in for you or do you have to request a transfer first? I'm new to FIFA and finding info is like pulling teeth!
