Can't recommend the pro mode or whatever it's called enough.

What team have you started as?

Just came 3rd with Richie Porte at the Aussie Champs, given I had no idea what I was doing I am happy with that lol, oh and only 3 riders as opposed to Orica who had 8 for Gerrans.

On Pro mode, depends what type of rider you train to be. But typically speaking, the effort meter is your best friend if you're trying to pull away, especially on a climb.

The first season is fairly boring as you're a junior and you have to do really well to have anything to do after the half way point, but the season after you'll get a contract from the tier up if you've done alright and you'll get more road time.

Have either of you downloaded a new database to play with the game? I have tried PCM daily 1.6 but keeps crashing due to team textures being buggy.

I haven't, no, but I might give it a go and see if I have the same issue tomorrow night.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Haven't really looked at PCM daily very much, has anyone noticed if there's a way to make the race stages change? It gets a bit dull racing the exact same race season after season.

Well did 2 races on pro mode before bed last night, think its safe to say I wont be playing anything else for a while as its quite addictive! Just need to work out tactics and controls a bit more. Worked out how to ride near the front of the peleton now, just a shame when it comes to the final 10k my rider has nothing left for the sprint haha

I'm trying to play the Pro mode. It has crashed twice in two attempt, once just trying to get back to the main menu and once trying to load a race. So the crash to desktop is very much a standard feature just like every single PCM game ever made.

If it crashes at the same point each time see what its loading at that point. Database or kit image issues seem to be the common problem. So far with the database I linked above its worked fine.

It very rarely crashes on mine on pro mode, only really does it when I mash the mouse by accident when it's loading and it sometimes does it if I tab out of the window and go back in on a loading screen.

I'm in Pro mode and before a race I have a star inside a circle under 'Bonus' but it doesn't explain what that means. It just says 'Objective' when I hover the mouse pointer over it but it says nothing in the Strategy screen or anything. Has anyone seen this or know what it is and what I'm supposed to do?

I imagine it'll either be something your sponsor wants you to focus on or something your rider is meant to focus on winning (how that's decided I don't know). Don't recall seeing it myself.

I'm having a great time with the Pro Rider game mode. Started off as a 19-year old Norwegian Stage Racer and spent my first season with Team Joker (NOR). Won 1 young rider's jersey and one polka-dot jersey (of course in rather unspectacular stage races, but still) in my first season but didn't get a new offer from Joker. So, despite having offers from a few Pro Continental teams I decided to stay in the Continental division and signed with Sparebanken Sør (NOR). Only a 1-year deal but my thinking was that I would go from waterboy to captain and could ride for my own chances a lot more than I did in Year 1.

So far I've been the captain in most races and it's kind of nice having a rider sit in front of you, protecting you and bringing you water through the entire race Mrgreen Feels nice!

The game still crashes a lot, almost 50% of the time when launching a race, but luckily it always works the 2nd time I launch the race so at least it's not game breaking.

The cycling season is just underway (at least in Europe) and Pro Cycling Manager 2018 is 70% off on steam. Worth it?
