  1. Youth League/Cup

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions! We appreciate all feedback and will consider it when making improvements to the game in future updates. The reason for Youth players is mostly to train them up so that they can become valuable first-team players as you reach later years in the game and your players begin to get old and retire. It's a good idea to play them sometimes to keep their stats increasing. It is also possible for star players with very high potentials to appear in your Youth promotions, so its definitely worth using and investing in your Youth academy. Theo
  2. In-game buttons not working

    We're really not sure what could have gone wrong here. I personally suggest that you completely uninstall and reinstall the game then leave the game files untouched, as its likely that there has been some kind of corruption in your game files. Theo
  3. Sponsorships!

    Thanks for the suggestion! This would definitely add more depth to the game, but sadly we would need permission and rights to use those brands in the game, which would be very expensive and unfortunately is not a possibility for us at this time. Theo
  4. In-game buttons not working

    We've changed how player values work on new games. Age now plays a much bigger role in the calculation of player values, so you will probably notice that the player worth £1,000 is in his late 30's or maybe even 40
  5. Synchronisation - Help!

    Hi, Unfortunately it is not possible to sync saves between different devices - this is because save files are stored locally on each device and they cannot carry over. Theo
  6. SM 2018

    Yes, it is likely that you won't be able to continue the same save in different releases of Soccer Manager (e.g SM18 saves won't be compatible with SM19), this is because the game engine and code change in ways that make it impossible for the saves to be compatible. Theo
  7. SM 18 on Soccer Manager.com

    Hi, Soccer Manager 2018 has had some major improvements over the previous versions, including being rebuilt in a new game engine. Unfortunately this meanst that it is not able to support playing it through a web browser. We recommend using Steam or Facebook Gameroom if you want to play on PC. Theo
  8. In-game buttons not working

    We're happy to hear that this has worked for you! However we do NOT recommend that users change or interfere with their save files in this way as it can result in problems or accidental save deletion - we urge anyone reading this that if they do this, they do it entirely at their own risk. You mentioned that your "SM2017 save is there" - what do you mean by this? Did you copy an SM17 save into your SM18 data folder?
  9. In-game buttons not working

    We're still looking into this, it seems to be something to do with saves being incompatible or not being recognised. We are currently focusing on the new update which will be released soon so unfortunately this might not be fixed for a little while, but we will look into it more as soon as possible! Theo
  10. Reset club points

    If you reset your club points, your upgrades will all be reset, but you will get the club points back to spend again. This costs 500 credits to do, so you will lose 500 credits if you reset your club points.
  11. savegame iphone and ipad

    Hi, sorry but this is not possible at this time. Save files are stored locally on your device(s) so can't be accessed from other devices. Thanks!
  12. packs doesn't open

    It could be that you are clicking too quick - if you click fast the ball gets dismissed and skips the animation and can look like nothing has happened.
  13. packs doesn't open

    Hi, thanks for reporting this. Are you playing without your internet enabled / playing with a weak internet connection? The Free Pack is tied to your account so you need to be connected to the internet for it to work. Hope this helps!
  14. How to FIX screen resolution problems on STEAM

    Hello SM18 users! Theres been a few reports from users about issues with their screen resolution in the Steam version of the game, so here's a quick post detailing how to fix this. The game should automatically detect your resolution and set itself to an optimal resolution on its first launch. If it doesn't, it could be because your monitor's resolution is not supported. or the game has failed to auto-detect your resolution for some reason. If you have problems, try this: Change the screen resolution or select to display the game in Window mode. You can do this by HOLDING THE ALT KEY WHEN YOU CLICK PLAY on the game in Steam. This displays configuration menu with a list of supported resolutions - try different ones until you find one that works. Note: The game is optimised for 16:9 screen resolutions (e.g 1600 x 900, 1366 x 768), but can also work on 4:3 (e.g 1024 x 768, 1280 x 960). 16:10 is not officially supported, so if you monitor is set to a 16:10 resolution you will likely have problems. I hope this helps! Theo (SM Support)
  15. that I can go to another team?

    Hi, if you are performing well at your club (have high board approval and fan approval), you might receive job offers from clubs in the countries that you selected at the start of the game. The only way to directly choose to manage a specific new club is to start a new game. Hope this helps!
  16. Starting over

    Yes, your upgrades will reset but you should get your club points back so you can spend them again.

  18. Starting over

    Hi, thanks for the message! If you start a new game, the only thing that will carry over is your Soccer Manager credits, as this is tied to your account and not your save game. Everything else will be reset. If you accept a job at a new club, your bank balance will change to that of the new club. Your Soccer Manager credits will remain the same. Your stadium will be reset to whatever the new club's stadium is. Your tech trees (training, stadium, scouting and youth upgrades) will all be reset - but you will get all of the club points back so you can spend them again. You will keep your trophies, and your board/fan/media confidence will all remain the same too. So basically all you lose by taking a new job is your stadium stand upgrades. I hope this answers your questions! Theo
  19. To create a game for browsers

    Hi, yes we are now stopping support and development of Soccer Manager 2017. The 2017 shop is now no longer accessible and no new updates will be released. As it is a game that is released on a yearly basis, we highly recommend that you move over to 2018. The browser based version of SM17 will not be available after 31st January. Hope this helps!
  20. To create a game for browsers

    Hi, Unfortunately Soccer Manager 2018 will not be coming to web browsers. This is because the game has been totally rebuilt and the engine has been dramatically improved from previous versions, and web browsers are now not able to run the game. Theo
  21. In-game buttons not working

    Hi, I'm afriad we are not sure what is causing this bug yet, but we will look into to try and figure it out and deliver a fix as soon as possible. Theo
  22. Game doesn’t go past 2026.

    We've fixed this bug now so your game should continue past 2026 without any problems
  23. Job Offer

    Hi, yes that is correct, if you are performing well in your team (have high board and fan approval) you will sometimes receive job offers from other teams in the 4 countries that you selected at the start. Theo
  24. SM 2018

    Hi Bryan, Unfortunately your profile and saves can't be carried over between different Soccer Manager games, Theo
  25. iPad crash

    Hi, thanks for reporting this issue! We are continually trying to improve performance with each new update, but unfortunately some older devices or devices with out-dated operating systems are more likely to experience performance issues, and iOS devices in particular. Try closing all background apps before launching the game. Also try restarting the iPad before playing so that the device's working memory is cleared. Are there any points in the game where the crashes happen most often e.g during a match? Thanks
