AM22 - Assistant Manager for FMM22 (Android) 1.0.1


8 Screenshots

This is a scouting app for FMM22 (Android), letting you:

  • See the CA, PA, hidden attributes etc for any player
  • Search for players by many parameters (CA, PA, Age, position, foot, name, club, some hidden attributes etc). 
  • Export the current view of players to a FMM shortlist so you can import them into your FMM shortlist 

NOTE: This will only work with FMM22, it will NOT work with FMM23 when it comes

I plan to release a new app called AM23 (for FMM23). This will be released on Google Play and will not be free

 

Installation

You will need to allow APKs to be installed from sources other than Google Play and you will also be prompted to allow installation from this source.

Once opened for the first time, the app will look for save files in a couple of common places. If it finds them, you will see buttons for each save file found. If it doesn't find any save files, you will need to tell the app where the save file folder is and there is a serious bug here. This is what you need to do:

  • You will be prompted with the Find Folder button. Press this.
  • You then need to find the Games folder and press the green tick / check mark in the top right corner. Note it won't show any files, only folders.
  • It SHOULD then take you back to the main screen and show you buttons for each save file BUT there is a bug and it doesn't show them.
  • You need to close the app fully (back button and say Yes) and then open it again. It should then show the save file buttons.

After that, everything should work fine. This is only a problem the first time you open the app and choose the folder. After that, the app should remember the folder and be able to show the buttons.

At this stage I'm not sure I can fix in AM22, the open file logic is pretty complicated and needs a total rewrite (which it will get for AM23 but using a solution that's not compatible with AM22).

 

Overview

Here's an overview of the app (from last year, but pretty much the same): 

Spoiler

 

 

For those following along

This version was supposed to be going onto Google Play, but it needs to comply with their newer (more restrictive) file permission model to be accepted. I can't do that without updating to the latest version of the programming language I'm using, and I can't update without a complete rewrite of the app.

It does actually work with the latest version of Android, so I'm releasing it here for free and embarking on a total rewrite for AM23.

 

Support, etc

The app shouldn't cause any problems, but it is an "use at your own risk" app.

If you find any problems with the app, please post them below. That said, I may not be able to fix them as once I start the complete rewrite, I can't update this version anymore (due to a conflict with software dependencies).

There will only be an Android version in the short term. Longer term I'd like to be able to do an iOS version, or at least a web version if that's not possible, but don't hold your breath!

 
Have fun! :D

Though remember using this app is against the rules of the challenges here on Vibe if you're doing one of them.

Hmm, is that the right path in the first screenshot? That is one of the places my app looks for files, but it's more common in "Documents" rather than "sigames > Documents" and I can't tell which one of those the second screenshot is in. 

If it is in the right folder, then not sure why it can't see the files. Did you get asked to allow access? If not, then maybe uninstall and try again. I'll see if I can find any way to make that happen, but it's a bit of a longshot trying to work it out.

Also, I better ask - do you know which version of Android you are using? And which device etc? Thanks

@Jord536 - Actually, I think maybe that's okay.

Once you are in the Games folder, press the tick in the top right corner and it will take you back to the main screen. If you can see the buttons for Save 1 and Save 2, then it's all cool and you just choose which one of those you want to open.

It's a bit confusing, but that Change Folder button is just there to choose which directory the save files are in so that the buttons can work. You don't actually open the save files that way. And I get the same thing with the actual files not showing - it only shows folders, because you are selecting the folder not the files inside it. 

As I said, pretty confusing. I didn't really want that step in there, but had to in case the app didn't find the location by default. But that's why the button is greyed out, it's an only in emergencies option.

For AM23 I have to rework the whole open file logic, so I'll try to improve the logic.

Is there no way to browse the SD card folders with the app? 

My game is installed on my SD card but the app is getting automatically installed in the device storage, which is the only place it then allows me to try and locate the game in.

You don't get the Save 1, Save 2, etc buttons on the main screen after that? Is it just empty? Can you get me a screenshot of the main screen at that point? Thanks

Hmm, it should be showing the save files on that screen after you chose the games folder. I don't have an SD card at the moment, but I'll buy one and test whether it's SD cards in general which are the problem.

@wakon @Jord536 @LFCTERAS - Okay, I think I know what is happening:

  • If the app doesn't find the save files in the default folder (that most FMM installations get), you are prompted with the Find Folder button.
  • You then need to find the Games folder and press the green tick / check mark in the top right corner (note it won't show any files in there, only the folders).
  • It SHOULD then take you back to the main screen and show you buttons for each save file BUT there is a bug and it doesn't show them.
  • If you close the app fully (back button and say Yes) and then open it again, it should show the save file buttons.

After that, everything should work fine. If you try that and it doesn't work, please let me know, but that's what's happening for me.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Pls @ScratchHow do i get this to work on a chromebook 

Umm, sorry no idea at all on that one and I don't have a chromebook to test it on. You'll have to google how to install an Android APK on a chromebook, but I'm not even sure if it will work, but it's just an android app, so it probably will.

You should probably ask this somewhere else, but I'll give a quick answer (which is all I have anyway).

I just train my players in the roles I need for my formation - if I want a player to play as RW, I train them as that. I use one Youth coach, one Motivational, one Fitness and one Attacking, but I don't know how much effect they actually have. I never pay attention to staff preferred formation, I think that's pointless.

Motivational but I don't think it matters much.

And about your tool...AM 22...wich way is best to found best players for selection or for transfer ?

You just got to try it and see, There's lots of filters (PA, some of the hidden attributes, release clauses, etc, etc etc). There's no one way to use it or a right way or wrong way. Got not much money? Check out the release clause filter. Need more professional players? Use that filter etc.

Is it possible for us to notice regens/newgens with this app? Great job btw. I've been waiting for this for a long time

Thanks. It doesn't tell you who they are, but if you have a save from season 1 to compare with, you can work it out by matching on PA, then height and weight and feet etc.

It's manual though - open save from season 1 and find the player you're looking for and make a note of their PA, feet, height etc, then open save from current season, filter by a PA range that  you can see all match players by PA, then look at them for matches.

At some point I'd like to do something better to help identify regens, but that's for down the track sometime.
