My advice would be to go with the solo career. Only thing is unless you win a race early on there's shit all to do in the back end of the year as the team's available in the first season don't seem to have any races later on.

Just completed my first race with my own continental team "Warren's Wheelers" I didn't have a single rider finish in the peloton.

Tricky.

Just a suggestion, make use of the "auto" command. It'll keep the team not falling to pieces and on a key stage in a stage race it'll allow you to focus on your team leader/sprinter/whoever you want.

Yeah cheers, I held it together slightly better on my second race. I just need to become familiar with the controls I think. It's great fun!

I was much more successful yesterday. Even managed to pick up a couple of points!

It's bloody hard work when you're first getting into it. Once you've grasped the controls you'll be fine though.

Taken from PCM Daily:

Quote:Go to one of your riders profile, choose training, and you should be able to choose which trainer your rider should have.

Into my third season on the pro mode and I've ridden myself into the pink jersey in the Giro for EuropCar.

Wore the jersey from stage 5 right up to stage 16, had a nasty fall and had to withdraw from the Giro with a fractured vertebrae. Bollocks. Gutted with that.

Started a new career with a Spanish custom team with only 18-21 year olds to experiment a bit (Normal difficulty and all riders on auto). Not sure what separates that particular career save from all the others I've started, but it kept crashing constantly. Crashed three times just trying to get to the next day which was the first stage of a stage race. Managed to sim past the first day without playing the stage and I was able to play a stage here and there, but for the most time I just had to simulate past without playing the stages because it would just crash all the time. It's amazing that Cyanide releases a game year after year and they are never able to fix all the crashing..

(Should we have our own PCM thread btw before we hijack this one?)

When you say crash, do you mean it said it was not responding then crashed? If so, try not to click or press buttons while the stage is loading. Sometimes it does that for me. Had about three crashes in total since I bought the game which isn't too bad considering the amount of hours I've put in.


But yes I think it would be worth having the posts moved into a separate thread.

No lag, no freeze, the game window just disappear, the game is closed and a popup asking me to send the crash report to Cyanide shows up. When you've sent that crash report for the 90th time it feels more and more like a slap in the face every time it pops up again.

What's weird is that I have a separate career file with another Spanish team, racing the same races and that hasn't crashed once. Maybe the randomness of the crashes is why it's unfixable...

That's odd. I've only gotten that type of crash two or three times so far. I can see why it's frustrating though - Christ, FM12 was a right dog for crashing on me...

it was alright when it only crashed when I dared use the drop down menus instead of clicking the arrows but when it stops you from actually playing the game, yeah that's frustrating.

Managed to successfully set up my sprint train last night. So good when it works out.
