I dont know if this is supposed to go in here but i couldnt see where else to put it. I fancied trying somethin different on FM and decided to manager in Sweden, However, Sweden was not a manageable country. Has it always been that way because im sure i could manage there???

11-09-2008, 16:23
it is most definitely managable in FM08

Sweden is manageable in FM08, of course. Maybe you forgot to select it when you started your new game?

12-09-2008, 19:34
No, It is honestly not selectable.

Have you got it set on Europe or all World when choosing teams and not just A different continent??? Lol

I have found the problem but i am not sure how to resolve it. When i select the database to 8.0.2 official patch, its there. However, Im using the latest ADDM update and the Swedish league is unavailable. I have had a look in the editor and the 'first division elite' had 16 teams where as the 8.0.2 database has only 14 teams

I guess that occurs because the Swedish top tier expanded from 14 to 16 teams before the 2008 season while keeping 16 teams in the 2nd tier (Superettan).

Yeah but why would that make the country unavailable to play in?

I think its confused and needed a nap

It's definitely playable. I remember somehow keeping Orgryte in the Allsvenskan after taking control mid-season. Really enjoyable game that was.

Have you touched the database at all? Might not show up because of some meddling ;)

But yeah, the Swedish league should work. Does for me.

I have not touched the database at all, I only use updates. I have now started using the latest ADDM update (1.1) and the number of teams in each league is the same

Because of the recent increase in teams in Allsvenskan there has been mayor issues in FM08 and the whole league system, i dont know exactly whats wrong but some teams are hard coded to be in a specific league and if you move them the Swedish Leagues becomes unplayable, thats probably what has happened with the "ADDM update" you say you are using.

Some of the teams involved are GIF Sundsvall, Häcken and Brommapojkarna and they should not be moved at all

Swapped GIF with Norrkoping and it works. Cheers mate
