How To Save The Controls Properly

For some reason, when I was saving my Keybinds in Steam, It was not registering at all. Whenever I quit and came back in the game, the settings would revert back to the defaults.

But When I checked FC 24 on both the XBOX App and the EA App, it was saving for me fine, and I did not have to Bind my PC controls repeatedly in order to make it work. I guess there is an issue with the cloud and local save for Steam for FC 24.

Moving on, here is how you can save the settings you did for the game:

  • After you are done changing the binds, hit “Esc” on your keyboard.
  • Now select an empty slot from the given slots, except “Temporary Configuration.”
  • Now save the Keybinds, then save your profile just to be safe.

If you do these correctly, you will not have to change the settings repeatedly, and it will be all set for you every time you load up FC 24 and play it.

How To Use The Controls Properly

To contain an attacker properly, press “C” and “E” and double tap “D” at the correct moment to win the ball. Instead of changing players using “Q,” press the right stick buttons to accurately change players. That way, you can defend properly.

Instead of flashy skills, you can just do body feints, which is a matter of pressing one right stick and then pressing the left stick in the opposite direction. You will be surprised how many times this will work on the opponents.

When you are on the edge of the penalty box for the opponent, make a right angle with it, hold “Z,” and then press “D” for a finesse shot. It is tough, but when pulled off correctly, it becomes unstoppable since the goalkeeper is caught off-guard.

  1. I think this is great, but now (11/20/2023) its outdated.

    EA has combined many controls into mouse movement, it seems and locked the below controls.

    For Attack Controls:

    LMB – Shoot /Volley/Header
    RMB – Short Pass/Header
    Mouse Movement – Protect ball
    Mouse Movement – Sprint
    Mouse Movement – Move Player
    Skill Moves (combined the 4 above) – MMB + Mouse Movement

    I didn’t check the defense controls

    1. I use 1, 2, 3, and 4 as my skill buttons. You can use then to make the goalkeeper move during penalties. Also, use the arrow keys to go up and down with the goalkeeper while diving towards a specific post.

    1. press the D on keyboard (My binds), and hold it to power up the shot. Make sure that the meter is green for the perfect timing of the shot. Use arrows to place the ball and take the free kick
