Hey quick question I never actually played fictional mode in FMH2 but does anyone if team logos will work the same way as they do in OOTP? Where all is needed is a team name to select the logo and not a city name + team name for the logo to appear? Just makes life way easier.

It's a great idea, but that's not how it currently works in FHM. OOTP and FHM handle logos very differently.

In FHM you actually need to have a logo with the specific full team name in your logos folder before the game will pick it up and use it.

If we are managing an NHL team, are we going to be able to offer a contract to a non-NHL club's coach and pay some sort of compensation should he sign? Right now, the action menu is blanked out on hired coaches working for lower level leagues. This even applies to my AHL affiliate's coach. I know teams have to ask for permission first, but is there anyway of doing that in this game?

BTW, thanks Lukas for answering so many questions in such a speedy manner!

Thanks, my pleasure!

I'm not actually sure on that question though, you stumped me

In a season I just started this works fine. I can hire coaches with other lower level teams.

It may be that you can only do this at certain times of the year?

Hopefully Sebastian or Jeff or Malte can answer.

Is there any chance that'll it will be implemented? Curious why it isn't like that already seems like it'd be simple to change.

Many features are "just small changes" but the sum of all add up to many hours of work. In the end we have to make priorities on what we add and what has to wait. I can confirm that it is on our to do list but there is no timetable for it.

Go to 'Manager' then 'Manager Options' once your game is fully setup and you'll see the checkbox about halfway down the screen on the left hand side.

Hello everyone, I am new to FHM, I used to play EHM, I am big fan of Football Manager and since I just purchased FHM3 I wonder if there are usual downloads to improve the realism experience for me (facepacks, stadium photos, maybe some logopacks?) this kind of stuff, can someone be so kind and advise me, eventually point me in correct direction? I am used to download this kind of stuff for my FM so I guess it might be similar for this game also.

I appreciate your help

I noticed that in sandbox mode in commissioner mode, once you load up the game, it does not allow you to select the expansion option. Is there only a certain time of the year when you are able to expand?

There are logopacks, jersey packs and different other packs available for FHM 2 and I´m pretty sure that actual packs will show up shorty (the new version is only available for 5 hours now ). The Steam Version will also have Steam Works support.

There should be a note on the league edit page: only on July 1st you can edit stuff (including expansion).

You can find quite a bit of user made stuff for FHM2 in the FHM2 Mods section of the forums.

Most all of it should work on FHM3 as well.

In theory you can copy your saves to the Steam version but since we talk beta version here I´m not sure if that is a good idea. Depending on the bugs we get in the next two weeks it might be a better idea to start any long-time games after the official release.

How much of the actual hockey game do you see in FHM3? Do you get to follow the game as it happens like in the Football Manager series? I know you don't decide about passing/shooting. But I think I read that you can make tactical changes, and decide what line goes out on face offs. Any other in-game decisions?

Also, do this get to watch the game as it unfolds? I'd assume so provided the game lets you make in-game tactical changes. But wanted to aks just to make sure.
