If like myself you tend to buy each version as it is released is there a way of saving your game and loading it having installed the new software. This obviously helps if you want to obtain a good career record for jobs with the bigger clubs.

Not an option.

SI has said this would be very difficult to program in, considering all the changes to leagues, rules, players, et cetera.

I'd love to see this in future FMs but I understand that it would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to impliment :(

It would be near impossible at this time!

i asked about this before. the answer was that each version has it's new features, maybe transfer system or so, and because of that it is impossible.

In that case it may be worth keeping 2009 for a few years and not buying further upgrades in order to achieve a good mangement record.

as far as I know; there is no upgrade which you can buy (with money). There are official patches which are released free and if you own a original copy of the game you can download the patches from internet and they will work right away.

For technical reasons SI does not support saved game converssion between patches. For the past couple of years; first patch came within 1 month after realease and second one at the end of winter transfer window.

I think he meant that he won't be buying another FM for a few years after FM09, not that he will be buying database updates ;)

AFAIK it would have little to do with players clubs & kits. It would be hard to change because the game's code chages from year to year, new features added, etc.

Yeah I also asked about it... I'm glad that it is asked again because if a lot of people ask it, they might try to add it! We never know!
