the game looks visually great. Very nice interface and thankyou for the hi-res support. it looks lovely on 1440x900. the new media involvement looks good, does this interaction with the press lead to shape the managers profile?

I'm a little disappointed with the managers profile. What is the benefit of knowing a managers tactical consistency? It's more fun trying to get a managers profile upto 20 with statistics that really matter. Will this be changed before the 2009 full release?

Your gui designer can pat himself on the back for a very very nice job.

No it does not.

Finally tried the demo and my first question is who the hell is doing your usability testing. i mean seriously. Sub menus in the manager drop down. Really? Why exactly is this a good idea? There is plenty of space available for all the options. hell you could even add a new menu to the top. Its not like there isnt a ton of wasted space in there. Really really bad user interface decision.

And the 3d engine. jeeeezus. I wasnt expecting much but this looks very bad. 2D still looks better IMO, but now it takes forever for the match to appear. A step back compared to fm08 instead of a step forward.

marching on together!!!

A disappointing 100k to spend with Leeds...

And why doesn't Becchio have 20 for every attribute due to him being a legend? Poor showing SI...

i agree leeds utd are the highest spenders in league 1 and should have something like 1.5 million

and also becchio is way better than his stats are suggesting - this from a lufc season ticket holder


come on leeds!!!!!!!!!!

back up we go - this is the year

Think Peterborough Utd start with 150k iirc, although they spent close on £2m last january while in league 2 and have money to spend this year if needed.

yeah i don't doubt that... i think the research hasn't been done into club spending power


peterborough was the best away day for me this year shame we lost but we did deserve to lose :P - peterborough are going to be there or there abouts

Been trying the demo, my thoughts. Way too many injuries. 3d makes it easier to see who's doing what. Press conf is a nice touch and the transfer system seems better. I have had a crash with an array out of bounds error, but only one so far.

I've had the game on preorder. I just wondered if anybody could help me. I've got a dell inspiron laptop 1525 - should it run fine on that? (I'm a bit of a technophobe so aren't sure about specs and all that!) When using FM08 I can run loads of leagues and it's fine.

Below is what I've copied from the dell website about my laptop:

Should this be okay??? I'm not really bothered about watching the matches in 3d!

I really like the 3d engine, makes it much more realistic and great to see actual players. I'll definately buy as it'll give me some time off from FML once everything calms down after live.

DEMO CRASHED! i thought i'd try the 3-D match engine, and the game just froze. On a top of a range laptop.

I notice that sigames have not listened regarding the complaints about constant player unhappyness. I rejected 1 offer for a player and he instantly wants to leave. AHH. This is so annoying.

WHY can't the manager talk to the player and try to persuade him to stay, reassure him of future plans? This would be a nice feature.

I hope sigames do something about this player unhappyness. It annoyed me in the 08 version, and is no better in the 09 demo.

Loving the new demo, however... is anyone else getting a massive amount of injuries? 10 of 24 in the first team are injured, and not little knocks. torn calf muscles etc. It seems that every game results in atleast 1 major injury and a few minor ones. I had one game where 4 players were injured and I had already made 2 subs! Didn't work out too well for me. Anyway, still loving it!

Yes the injury "system" need to be tweaked!! It's not realistic that 4-5 of your key players are constantly injured - and especially 2-3 month at a time!!

Once again, Miles and the crew, thank you thank you thank you.
I am currently at work, having downloaded the strawberry demo this morning. I am thinking of nothing but FM2009, and I fear my productivity my be waning.
I am also positive that I have said the phrase "3D match engine" about 5 times already, and people here are starting to think my slender grip on sanity has finally given way to outright lunacy.
Apprently "3D match engine" is not the correct answer to the question "would you like a coffee?".

As I have a slightly runny nose, and am ergo on the verge of death, I may have to let my boss know that I can't possibly work under these conditions and slink off home to accelerate my convalescence in bed with a nice cup of 3d match engine.

With most teams, the transfer budget you have left at the start of the game/demo is set by the researcher in the database to reflect the level of money left to spend for the club in real life after the summer transfers. It would not be that realistic if a club had for example £5M to spend in real life this summer and they had gone out and spent it on players, and then you'd start the game with said players already at the club but with another £5M to spend.

So, I have played through most of the demo time now with Real Madrid.

There are many really nice improvements in this version. So far I especially like the press conferences, the ass man support during matches and the info about player morale during the match. Very well done!

The biggest addition is, of course, the 3D match. Now that I have reduced the detail level to small etc (sky!?!? can you see it at all?), the frame rate is acceptable. I think I like it! The addition of 3D was inevitable anyway, so it is good that the first step has been made this year.
Ok, there are still many rough edges here, but I am confidenbt that SI will improve the 3D game over the coming years and for now I can live with the current representation.

What I don´t like:

Injuries! Sometimes I had more than half of the squad injured. This has to be fixed ASAP. And please keep in mind that tired players don´t invest so much energy in friendlies anyway!
Removal of the Highlight speed slider! This really annoys me. I want to go through matches quickly while still look at the highlights closely. This is not possible anymore. Bring this feature back, please! :(

There are some more small things, but let´s keep it at that. These are by far my biggest concerns.

Anyway, this can be a good game, let´s hope for a good patch.

Good job, SI. :thup:

one thing i noticed which can be annoying bit its not a bug, or an issue, rather an annoyance.

when playing friendlies against amateur spanish sides who have randomly generated players, it seems to me that often it ends up with generated generated names being...dunno how to describe it so i'll post examples of last names in question which i ran into:

example 1) gonzales gonzales
example 2) herndandez hernandez
example 3) fernandez fernandez

fm2009 comments:

injuries are **** loads. press conference - questions about motivation are rubbish and also league champions every time i am asked about it which is every month and the most crappy part is that the conference disappears when i expect one every match.

game problems are more stalling of game - my pc has a bug but i still think that you have got a problem in terms of the game.

also "cowards and not brave " like arsene wenger please for press conference if players injured.
also belief "we are the best" - in conference of game

also mutu and liverpool one comment should cover mutu and liverpool interest so no more mutu in game questions. i have been asked about 3 times on version of the game and i dont want to be asked that after the first question as mutu is not going to be a liverpool player due to me not wanting him.

manager "charamastic" question

"hairdryer" question

Yes I understand. Just that we have a large transfer kitty and generous chairman so I suppose this would be ok if a request for additional transfer funds was accepted.....which I haven't tried yet.

I've been playing the demo with Wimbledon AFC and am almost at the end of the demo period. I have to say I love it! Sure the 3d isn't up to Fifa09 standards, but who cares? As someone said somewhere else on this forum, it's a tactical tool not a major element of the game such as beforementioned game. The 3d has shown me so much more of how my tactics look and work than I ever was able to draw from the 2d view in the previous games. I cannot pinpoint why, but it just clarifies things for me.

I tried going back to the game I was having in FM08 before I installed the FM09 demo and honestly, I don't even want to go back to it... when I played FM08 I quickly realized "ah screw it, I'll just play 6 month games until the full version of FM09 drops in the mail".

Thanks SI-games for renewing my undevided interest in Football Manager, and best of luck with the patches etc.

I'm not in love with the 3d match engine, graphics look crap and it takes 10 seconds to load.... even when i change to 2D the match engine still takes its time to load.

Wish there was an option to turn the 3d match engine off completely.

The only other new feature worth talking about is the manager press conferences which are fun initially but usually end up sending my Assistant because i'm bored of it.

I'm still impressed with the skin and hopefully alot more new talent in the game... thats all i care about :)

Finally got the game working and played a couple of matches. It`s obviously better than the 2D but there are still some problems with it, it`s a bit jerky and the ball seems too floaty. The game it`s self doesn`t seem that much different to 08, apart from the match engine and the press conference which is pretty cool it feels like im playing 08 version, all the words when you do pre and post team talks are the same as the last version. don`t know if it`s worth £30 instead of the usual £18 like last year.

I don't know if this is normal but whenever I started the demo through Steam, COMODO Firewall gives an alert for fm.exe that it is trying to gain access "name of exe here". I know it is ok for most of them like CCC.exe (Catalyst control center), sched.exe, Apache.exe, steam.exe etc. What gets my attention is fm.exe tries to do this for nearly every exe working at the moment like if FML is working for fml.exe, if firefox is working for firefox.exe, etc. Is this normal or there is something wrong with COMODO?

I had a proper go on the demo today, its quite good baring the bugs! I never played FM08, as i kept with FM07, so don't know if its the same but i find the new skin really confusing :( Everything is in like a sub sub menu, and always an extra click away! The 3D match just freezes on my pc, so aint even gonna bother with that i think lol

7/10 just cause of the confusing skin and the bugs

07-11-2008, 21:31
I dont know if this is going to be changed for the full game but I've found that the stats for each player have hardly been changed at all from the players stats on fm08.. I know this might sound like a minor thing but some players who have notably increased/decreased their stock over the past year remain with almost identical stats for this year. E.g Robbie Savage is an important first team player for Derby and his stats are suitable for a low premiership team, while this might sound reasonable on paper, i feel its an unfiar reflection as Savage cant get in our side and is on loan at Brighton so how are his stats comparable to players in the premiership.. Any notice would be much appreciated.. :)

Disappointed by the demo... Injuries and problems with text entry for example extra letters appearing: Letters can become lleetttteerrss and you have to remove the duplicate letters and type a very slowly. Injuries though are by far the worst aspect of the game, you end up playing loads of reserve matches instead of 1st team games as you have to rely on the reserve players so much. Currently I have no strikers left, u19 included, and no left sided midfielders. The shortest injury being 3 weeks to 3 months... And that brings me to my other gripe! Injuries showing as being for around 1 day to 4 weeks, what a load of nonsense. :(

I have been playing the fm09 demo for a few days now and do hope there is going to a complete patch to solve the amount of issues I have with this new version.

I know this is a gripe but I cannot believe what is happening to the football manager series. I am not griping just because things aren’t going my way. Playing as Liverpool, I am now in November and I am 2nd, undefeated and with the same points as top place Spurs (Yeah, I know Spurs, how realistic is that?!). I can only hope there we a be a patch for the demo because has things stand, I will be buying FIFA manager first. Yes it’s that bad.

Most of the issues have been reported in other threads, so there’s no point going into detail, so much to say that FM 2006 is still the best version I own.

I think since fm06 it is a matter of fixing things that aren’t broken and introducing new features that don’t quite work. I tried FM07 ( can’t remember what went wrong with that one) and trading it in for FM08 and due to it being impossible to sell players, I’ll be trading it in for my next foray into PC footy management.

If a new patch for demo is released, could someone let me know. I would prefer to test that before throwing £30 at a huge disappointment.

Upto to 4% now!!! ought a laptop today with mobile broadband (3G), not overly impressed at the speed of the broadband to be honest. Really wanted the demo to make sure I could use 3D (not that fussed about web as I can use it at work) but if I can't download the demo I'll have to wait until next friday to see if it works, If it doesn't I think I might evoke the 14 day return thingy as if it doesn't do the the 3D I'll stick to my house PC!

Patch is coming on release day. It also appears easier to sell players on FM2009.

From what I played of the demo, that's one thing they have put right. However this was another issue that didn't need fixing from FM06.

hi

i was leading 1-0 - the game changed the scoreline on the replay and i lost 1-0 to stoke - the game had me 1-0 then went to replay and the score 0-0 when the game was showing the goal, game stopped and scoreline stayed 0-0 and then stoke scored in game and i lost.

please could fm lot explain besides pc being bugged as i know it is why i have put up with losing if someone screws around with a bug in the game which allows changing of score lines in the replay of the goal. so that a person can end up losing.

thank you
salman

Was it disallowed for some reason? Check the match report, which should tell you. Many a time I've thought I'd scored, turned away and when I look back I haven't.

If this isn't the reason you can save a pkm and upload it to the bugs forum where SI will usually get back to you.

Dl'd the 'vanilla' demo, it's pretty decent. Runs slow as hell on my PC though, and there are FAR too many injuries :S

I'm a mac user and I've been trying to download the demo for several days. None of the links provided on the front page of the website or of this thread work for me. Does anyone have a direct download link to either one of the demos for mac?

After a few days trying this demo I have to say it is virtualy unplayable. There are so many injuries, it becomes imposible to pick a proper team. Sorry, but I wont be buying this one.

played twice CRASHED twice. The game keeps freezing around match day. once before the matchday and once onclick of the continue button at the end of the match.

I would put this in the bugs forum only i don't have a clue what to describe the bug as. It just freezes.

is anyone else having this crash on matchday issue?

After having played around with the demo for a while, I have to say that the 3D view is quite impressive. I've always used the split view option when viewing my games, with the 2D pitch at one side of the screen and various stats at the other side. So, I didn't expect the 3D view to be something I would ever get to use much, but 3D view actually works surprisingly well in split view.

The only thing I can really complain about so far is that the game is still only supplied with these ultra bright white background skins. I want my darker green FM07 skin back :(

Still, if only SI hadn't decided on that DRM, this would be a game that I could easily learn to enjoy.

I have something for u m8... I hope u like my FM07 skin for FM09 ;) Enjoy it!

Could anyone tell me is the new game going to the new prize money for the English premiership? I believe you now get £50 million for winning and £25 mil for finishing bottom. Is this going to represented on FM09? I still play FM06 and I did play FM08 for a couple of seasons but this part of the game wasn't updated.

Please tell me it is.

If people think the bugs in the demo will be fixed when the full game comes out, you`re in for a shock. Everytime a demo comes out with bugs, the same ones are still there in the full version until a patch is released.

Well yes of course they are.

The game goes gold, and this is a gold demo. Gold means that a "Gold master disk" has been created and its gone into production.

To be able to fix the game when its gone into production would mean scrapping the disks that have been created, going through the whole process again and creating another gold master disk. Which frankly wouldn't be in anyones best interests because the game would certainly be delayed.

The patch will be out on release day. Which as always I commend SI for doing.

They`re releasing a patch on the same day it comes out, it`s the first time thats happened, what will it fix though.

Hi, I have just reinstalled my computer, and now the demo will not install in steam. Do any of you have the same problem?

Finally tried the demo and my first question is who the hell is doing your usability testing. i mean seriously. Sub menus in the manager drop down. Really? Why exactly is this a good idea? There is plenty of space available for all the options. hell you could even add a new menu to the top. Its not like there isnt a ton of wasted space in there. Really really bad user interface decision.


Totally agree with this part, annoys the **** out of me

Will there be an updated Demo released with the fixes in the patch applied. I'm still not sure based on what i've tried on the demo and would rather try a patched version of the demo rather than buying the full game to apply the patch and try it.

After playing the demo, the injuries thing definitely needs to be sorted out.

I noticed it happens to Midfielders most often. Playing as Man Utd, 7 players were all out on injury, that's including Hargreaves and Ronaldo, who are injured from the start.

But other than that, everything looks great. I'm quite surprised it runs on my computer aswell.
