Jonagravy found this yesterday, so I recorded some Xbox Clips (explains the poor quality :D ) and put them together to help show you how to unlock Driven Free Kick, Outside of the foot trait and all the other traits you SHOULD have for Fifa 17.



If you don't want to watch the video and listen to my horrible accent :D

    No worries, glad I could help.
  • Will you have to rejoin club your in?
  • does this reset all the skill points earned from b4?
  • the old traits don't show up to be purchased with skill point do we just have them now?

    No, but you have to rebuy the Fifa 17 traits again as it de-selects all them and gives you your points back.

    Watch the video and you'll see the traits and how to find them.

    Nice stuff. Does this also help with the bug that you dont see the edited face of your pro? :o

    I think it does as my pro looked different when I used him after doing this.

    so you didnt edit you pro much? because i can see a big difference between the generic face you start with from scratch and the one i have edited (not talking about teint & hair) ... and in the game and in the arena, only the generic is shown

    I never edit my pro's face, default face, change hair, remove facial hair then add accessories. Been that way since Fifa 10. Sorry.

    But when I played a proper game after doing the steps in the video, he did look slightly different. Maybe its all in my head :D

    That's a known glitch for fifa 17 as your inmatch face is default even if you edited it ea will fix this in the future.

    this stuff works like a charme

    just the face bug is still there

    well, the traits stuff also was a bug or glitch .. so ..

    any idea about the face bug? maybe also can be solved by cleaning up some settings, because 3 guys that dont have the problem told me, they uninstalled the demo before installing the game ... i could imagine this is just some data adressing problem probably caused by some temporary data overwriting or something like this ... as not all have it, this should be not too hard to find out what´s the difference

    Is it 100% safe that you don´t lose your progress (I´m not talking abou skill points but the actual player stats) if you follow this procedure ?

    Before I installed FIFA 17 on my PS4 I already had the Demo & FIFA 16 uninstalled btw...

    Yes. Watch the video. You see I create my pro again and I'm an 86 overall RF straight away.

    What a fanboy! "Love EA" i see how you rank up your VP in Pro Rank matches eh?

    Can anyone confirm if this includes the fancy passes trait? The flair trait in-game is not working properly.

    Unfortunately, its bugged. Even with Flair and doing the steps in the video, Pros can't fancy pass.

    AI players can but a 90+ rated player can't...

    Surely they'll patch it right? Just tell me what I wanna hear, lie to me!

    I don't know but I assume it has to be somewhere on EA's to do list. It can't be left like this. I'm struggling without being able to flick the ball.

    Guys, how does the power/driven FK work for you?

    For me it is reduced to a mere low driven shot no matter how much power I put into it. This is very disappointing for me because I used to score a lot of power FKs in previous FIFAs. This was my speciality and now it looks like it's gone :neutral:

    Anyone tried removing the flair trait from 17, double check that you've got fancy passes on 16 and then re-download your pro? Maybe they won't work together.

    I just deleted and re-created my pro, and sure enough, no backheels, I'd try the aforementioned, but haven't got 16 installed anymore.
