    130.000 on the v10.0 premium

    you're using the v8.5 correct?
  • SirTAVARES's avatar
    No idea, i have one india free agent that never appeared on my saves either :(
  • bp89's avatar

    No, thank you!

    I chose the largest possible database, but again for some reason these players didn't show up. Some remained there as seen in the picture, but some like Bubanj and Radonjic are missing.

    * Let me just add that I am focused on the Red Star players because they interest me the most. I don't know if this is the case with some other teams, someone else can confirm that.

    Also, I have one suggestion regarding help regarding this, and it concerns facepack. If you have enough time and will, I have a base of facepacks that only need a cut to be inserted into the game. They would upgrade an existing facepack, and some players who don’t have a cut would get one. They are of great quality and it is possible to work with them (of course the one who knows), so I can send them to you if you are interested

    ps: I'm just looking now, maybe this is the case because they are missing. My Facepack contains 992 cut-outs, and the database itself contains about 130,000 changes (for me it's about 100,000)?

  • SirTAVARES's avatar
    Thanks pal :)

    Well players will depend on several factors from the league you load or the amount of players. Both are in the team.

    About premium yeah, for now only PP or Skrill.
    And sure you can suggest some players missing but i don't know if i'm releasing a new version before FM22. But feel free, if i'll do a new version i'll take a look at it.
