    Thanks for that Rancer

    What do you guys reckon I should do? Continue or start again?

    Oh and Rancer that Japan file like isn't working or something? Shows on the league selection screen but is unselectable and has an hazard sign on it.

    Which file did you download? You just need to load the Japan.dbc one when you start (I think).

    It's an XML file. Just put it in the editor data folder after UnRaring it.

    Do you still get real Japanese players? (which are not duplicate at every club...)

    You may have to "enable" the J-League files. If you search around, you can find information on how to do that. It's a licensing issue (same as for the German national team).

    Firstly after you have captured your image it needs to be uploaded to an image hosting site. (I'll assume you know how to do this)

    If you want it to appear in a link like this = Picture You need to enter[url=YOUR LINK HERE]picture[/url]

    If you want it like this you need to enter[img]YOUR LINK HERE[/IMG]

    nah you dont have too use coding, do the thread however you feel comfortable

    regarding doing the coding easiest way is to set it up in not pad then past it into the thread surrounded with the [*code] and [/code*] tags Minus the *

    Big dislike the 3-4 times a season you have to play Saturday Tuesday Thursday Saturday in the league. I don't think I've ever seen that IRL! (in real life, not Ireland...)

    Yeah, I have a squad that is playing 3 or 4 games a week for NINE WEEKS straight. It's insane--trying to figure out how to fix one a save has started, but editing competitions on the fly is rough.

    Is that just in the league or including cups? I can understand a tight schedule if you're fighting on 5 or 6 fronts. It's when those 4 games a week are in the league (before the season has even started, so no cup draws affecting it).

    Oh, league and cups, definitely. What league is giving you the schedule from hell?

    Mine is compounded by another oddity, where players who are new to the game with no history are assumed _not_ to be homegrown. (FMS Entry here if you want more detail).

    Oh, and I won't manage rivals. So, there's no way in the world I will manage Ajax. And I've already developed a soft spot for Stuttgart, so I won't manage Bayern, Dortmund, and Schalke! Hoffenheim is fine though.

    And all you Columbus Crew supporters, eat your heart out, I won't manage your club either.

    I knew you liked Estudiantes Santander and a Turkish club DodgeeD, but never really knew which club you really supported that wasn't because of FM.

    me - Toronto FC, PSV, V-Varen Nagasaki, Guandong Rizhiquan
    Raware - Nottingham Forest, Long Eaton United, Hong Kong football
    Nottingham Forest - Nottingham Forest
    Sax - Norwich, Lowestoft

    Neji - Sheffield Wednesday?

    Won't manage: Columbus Crew, Ajax, Derby, Ipswich, Colchester, any other club in Ireland except Wexford, Anderlecht, Cercle Brugge, Spurs, Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool (my favourite English club is Everton), Southampton, Wolves, Newcastle, Murcia, Levante. I won't manage these clubs, it's not that I actually like them IRL anyways.

    I never managed at Luton (the Luton -30 points challenge doesn't count ) or Watford. If I manage Luton, I won't manage Watford, and vice versa.

    I'm really limiting my future career game options here.

    Of course. I will always play my own challenge. As for the country, I'm not sure. I won't be playing my challenge in Japan though (unless the game recognizes that foreigners can take Japanese citizenship).

    I'm not sure if the xml files for FM10 will be compatible for FM11 though, so I would want SI to clear that up first...

    Newcastle Town, Stoke City and Billericay Town.

    Though saying favoured clubs... the last match I went to was Newcastle Town v Silsden three seasons ago. Golf gets in the way these days.

    Northern Premier League First Division South, so if Uncle Ron updates his work from FM2010, then you can start as them in FM2011.

    Now there's a thought... if I get FM2011... do I go Newcastle Town, Billericay Town or try to recreate the Miracle?

    Newcastle Town imo. They're in the lowest division out of the 3.

    Out of the 3 you said, I'm thinking of Billericay Town because I want to load 7 English tiers. 8 tiers might mess up the cups because I heard that there was some bug if you don't load 10 tiers (and I'm not going to 10 English tiers in my career game because all the cups would just slow down the game too much. The FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round took a long time to simulate just with the English leagues on my laptop) on FM10.

    me - Toronto FC, PSV, V-Varen Nagasaki, Guandong Rizhiquan
    Raware - Nottingham Forest, Long Eaton United, Hong Kong football
    Nottingham Forest - Nottingham Forest
    Sax - Norwich, Lowestoft
    MeLikeFM - Shamrock Rovers, Toronto FC
    Nobby - Billericay Town, Stoke, Newcastle Town
    CoachFlu - Club Brugge, Belgian football
    Nep - Arsenal
    Hershie - Arsenal, Watford
    dafuge - Portsmouth
    DodgeeD - Toronto FC, Man Utd, Stoke City, Genclerbirligi, Estudiantes Santander
    AcidBurn - Sunderland, Crewe
    hrbfcrule - Hampton & Richmond
    Luton Town, lutontown1991 - <------
    crouchy - St. Albans
    jackripper - Man Utd, Cardiff
    acidmonkey - Sunderland
    Deisler - Albacete, Sparta, AC Ajaccio
    uncle ron - Swindon?
    Neji - Sheffield Wednesday?

    Currently testing a 113 league save (well I'm just holidaying it to see how it is on my laptop) so if that goes well I could be attempting my biggest career game yet in FM11.

    And my 113 league save is a holiday save of all the European leagues (except Liechtenstein), except I stupidly forgot to load one with an actual professional league...Wales!!! ><

    The cups run perfectly fine with Uncle Ron's 8 tiered package on FM2010. FA Cup still starts at the Second Qualifying Round, a random selection of tier 8 clubs don't appear in it, having been knocked out in a simulated First Qualifying Round.

    I forgot to mention I was referring to SuperBladesman's file...

    But regardless cheers Nobby. If that's the case then if the FM10 xml files work for FM11 then I'll download uncle ron's files and load the 8 tiers. If not, I'll have a look at his FM11 xml file for my career game.

    I haven't managed in Italy, Portugal and France (well for Career Games anyways. I have tried managing with a French National club in the Big Euro Challenge but never got into it) either...

    I've never managed in France either. Thinking about including it for FM11 - if the game reflecvts real life, there'll be a lot of work to do

    France has some of the best youngsters on the game it is packed with players that can become world class. I have never managed there or in Italy or Portugal either. Makes me think I am missing something by not managing in some other countries, never managed in Brazil either.

    I played in France when Ronaldinho was at PSG, whatever that year was and really enjoyed it. I also really enjoyed reading PaulHartmans thread when he was in France . I definitely recommend it. I'm also a keen follower of Italian football (since the days of James Richardson and football italia on C4) but find it a tough league to play in due to the limited number of foreigners per season you're able to sign. Definitely worth having a go at though .

    I hope your machine is powerful enough rancer to run all of these leagues! ;)

    For my new game I've decided to holiday through to the 22nd century () to see how different the football landscape is, and maybe take a fallen giant back to former glory. Only in 2021 though, so it'll be a fair few days yet before I'm in a position to start. One thing of interest though is already the number of clubs who are in administration. Before the 2021/22 season has event started 3 clubs (Hull, Blackburn and Wigan) have had 10 points deducted. Wigan are in League One, and have gone bankrupt for the 5th time in 8 years!!

    And interesting teams making it into the football league include Clitheroe, and Ashford Town (Middlesex), who have won their league 3 seasons in a row to make it to League Two. Found out why: a Hong Kong tycoon!

    Other clubs to get a Tycoon include Arsenal (that's not fair! Turkish. Explains why they've spent £364m in 5 seasons), and Torquay (Canadian, 2 seasons ago, promoted to League One, just paid £1.7m for an England U21 international). As far as I can see, aside from the pre-planned changes Man City are the only ones who have a new stadium, and very few clubs have expanded (noticeable one being Sheff Wed expanding to 45000 just before being relegated back to League 1).

    Incidentally, are tycoons pre-planned? In my Chelmsford/Bolton save I just had a look and Arsenal got a tycoon about the same time!

    Pretty sure they are random but takeovers are more likely to happen at certain clubs than others and are, in that sense, preprogrammed.

    My 'Project 22nd Century' game has simulated up to 2038. Not actually huge amount of change at the top level, still the same clubs dominating, although Southampton have moved into that top realm. Gateshead are the only non league team to have made it into the Prem but they're hanging around. The other smallest team to make it into the Prem is Macclesfield, who only lasted one season. But they are still playing at Moss Rose. I was wondering why their average attendance dropped from 6000 to 2599 for their Premier League season. Then I realised it's not all seater and terraces cannot be used. So in the Premiership and they could only have 2599 in their stadium! ouch!

    Also seeing a few sudden drops! Leamington had clawed their away up from the Ryman Regionals to League 1, then promptly self destructed. In successive seasons they came last in League One (5 points, 14 goals, 136 against, -122 goal difference), last in League 2 (21 points, 30 goals, 122 against, -92 goal difference) and then last in the BSP. Sad times.

    Guys, how do you deal with the '-1' squad registration problem in the Premier League?

    I'm sure I've read about it somewhere but I can't remember where.

    What do you mean? That leaving a space solves the problem of not having enough HG players?

    Basically, I have a youngster at the moment who is getting the squad number '-1' for every game and I've no idea how to workaround this problem. Any ideas?

    Don't think you can work around it although I could be wrong. I am pretty sure I read that because you cannot assign numbers outside of the 25 the player will always be -1.

    Does this mean you have an update to post?

    No, I'm afraid not. I'm just messing about on a save with a Premier League team for a bit of fun.

    I've been playing with a big team AB. I fancied trying it out after you said that you've never seen me manage in the top flight. ;)

    Sounds interesting, I want to see what sort of players you buy with a top flight team.

    Well, I'm not doing a proper career thread or anything like that. It's just for fun but I can just tell you about it in this thread instead.

    After you said that you'd never seen me managing a top flight side, I thought I would have a bit of a fun save managing Liverpool. I fancied taking over from Rafa.

    I created my new alter-ego manager, Roy Crouchson, a former Non-League player (for St. Albans City ;)) turned manager.



    First season, I kept the first-team squad much as it was, except for signing Yoann Gourcuff as my Xabi Alonso replacement to be my midfield playmaker. I also brought Danny Murphy back to Anfield as a squad player. Played a 4-4-1-1 formation similar to that I've been using with the Saints in my main save. My best team was basically:


    Reina
    Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Aurelio
    Maxi, Mascherano, Gourcuff, Riera
    Gerrard
    Torres


    We exited early from the League Cup but come April we were still battling on three fronts. We lost an FA Cup Semi-final to Arsenal. Then, at the beginning of May, Everton ended our hopes of winning the title by beating us 2-0 at Goodison. However, I managed to win Liverpool a sixth European Cup, beating AC Milan, Chelsea, Inter and Bayern in the knock-out rounds to claim the trophy. An FM first for me.

    So runners-up in the League, FA Cup semi-finalists and, best of all, European Champions in the my first season in charge. The biggest pain I have found managing Liverpool is that the squad doesn't have enough depth. Also Fernando Torres seems to get injured every other week. So my priority in terms of signings was to increase the depth after season 1.

    You wondered about the sort of players I would sign? Well, during the summer I was given good money to spend and I decided that my buying policy would be to prioritise young British talent. I sold Albert Riera and Ryan Babel for a fair wedge. Then, I went on to spend a lot of money signing the following: Aaron Lennon, Tom Huddlestone, Danny Wilson, Jordan Spence, Gareth Bale, Jack Wilshere and Jonjo Shelvey. Milan Jovanovic came in on a free (not my signing) and I also signed Tomas Rosicky as he was going cheap.

    I've got a little bored with it now so think I will probably leave it for a bit and return to my proper save. I'd quite like to win Liverpool their first league title for 20 odd years though but I don't know if I have improved the quality enough to challenge.

    That's a great first season especially the European Cup being such a tough draw. Good British signings as well especially Huddlestone I really like him in FM and Bale is wicked. It is great fun to just play the odd season now and then with certain teams. I signed Torres for Sunderland once and found that he picked up the odd knock here and there but nothing too bad.

    2052 now in 'Project 22nd Century', and Arsenal are the dominant team. The Mancini Stadium only lasted 25 years, before the built the 98,155 capacity Van Persie Arena!

    So what does everyone on the FM Career Updates forum make of the FM11 announcements? Thoughts on the features? Anyone excited/not bothered/going to buy it/not going to buy it etc.?

    What are your planned careers for FM11 if you are getting it?

    My studies may keep me away from FM11 for a while so I may delay buying it (I won't bother saying I'm not going to buy it as I generally do in the end ).

    I was thinking of starting a journeyman careerconsisting entirely of leagues I've never played a full season on before (obviously, additional .xml files will make this easier).

    If i'm honest C, I was disappointed with FM09 and had reservations about whether or not to buy FM10. Initially I was happy that I did buy FM10 and had a couple of great saves on it but after installing patch 3 it really ruined the game for me. I tried going back to FM08 (which is my favourite installment of the game) but couldn't seem to get back in to it. So, I re-installed FM10 with patch 2 and am happy with the game now.

    As for FM11, i'm not too sure if i'll buy it. Saying that though, since SI announced the new dynamic league rep feature, this could sway my decision especially as I like to play in the lower leagues. I'd like to try another Asian save and see how a league rep increase would effect Asian football. If it does sway my decision, i'll probably wait until the 1st/2nd patch is out as it's well documented that new FM releases aren't usually ready to play (IMO) until after a couple of patches.

    How about yourself?

    Well, I'm not feeling too excited to be honest. None of the features have really captured my imagination, apart from maybe the DLR.

    I'm also enjoying FM10 so much and I feel a bit like I can't be bothered to start again on a new version. The new FMs always seem to come around too quick and I'm quite a slow player so I feel like I haven't done everything I want to do on this version yet!

    I still have a fair bit to do on my FM10 saves, so I definitely won't be starting a long-term save on FM11 for some time. I'm still an FM addict though so I'm sure that I'll still be getting the new version! When I do come to start an FM11 save, I will have to make use of the DLR feature really, as it's the only thing that is making me approach the feeling of excitement. Maybe I'll play in India or Wales and try to build up the reputation of those leagues. The other save I quite fancy is a Scandinavian or Nordic journeyman game where perhaps I can increase the reputation of some of those countries by improving how their clubs fare in European competitions. There will be the usual Saints save too just so I can play with the team that I research but I think it will be a short-term save this time around rather than another slog up the leagues as per my FM10 save.

    The thing is, I'm worried FM is sort of heading in a direction that I don't particularly want it to head in. I'm not at all keen on the 3D, much preferring to use my imagination with 2D classic instead, and so I'm not the least bit bothered about new animations and stadiums and so on. And stuff like the social networking features are not interesting to me either (although the YouTube videos bit sounds like it might be good!) I'm also quite disappointed that there aren't any further tactical innovations in the new version, which is a big part of the game for me, and would be a major attraction to me in terms of getting into a new version. To be honest, I didn't think a lot to the announcements about the training and the set-pieces features, as they didn't sound like anything in-depth and interesting to me. Finally, there isn't much to suggest that anything has been done on the team talks side of things, which is another disappointment.

    So, I guess I'm struggling to get my enthusiasm up for a new version, especially seeing as I think FM10 is a beautiful version of the game. What would make me really want to get into a new game is if they just focused in-depth on adding one or two major features, especially really developing the tactics creator and adding in much more detail. That kind of thing would make me rush to get the game and start a new save.

    I realise all of this sounds a bit negative and I don't mean it to sound like that! Perhaps the series is just heading away from what I personally would like it to be. I felt a bit like that since FM09 came out really but FM10 renewed my faith because I felt it was such a good game.

    Just my opinion chaps. I know some people will be thrilled with some of the new features.

    I will be trying to get fm11 asap. Due to DLR I will attempt to take a lower league club from a small nation to the Champions League using only youth products. Anyone know any small European nations which have a decent number of divisions? I was thinking Northern Ireland as that has 3 divisions but still undecided.


    Also I got a new computer a few days ago which I have been testing on my long term fm10 saves and it runs soooooo much faster can only be good news for my fm11 saves.

    Crouchy, still love those dots eh?

    Will definitely get FM11. Probably won't immediately start a career game or my challenge though, I have a lot of coursework and I already stopped my last FM10 career game. In FM11 I want to start a 100+ league save, my biggest so far, with some XML files, and probably holiday 5-10 years before officially starting my career.

    Northern Ireland would probably be good. Sweden is another one with a fair few tiers that I think could be fun for this kind of save.

    I think if/when I start an FM11 save, I'll probably end up doing something similar (i.e. a small club to big club style game).

    Also I got a new computer a few days ago which I have been testing on my long term fm10 saves and it runs soooooo much faster can only be good news for my fm11 saves.
    I'm jealous.

    Yes, afraid so.

    It's just the imagination factor of using 2D Classic. I'm afraid I've reached the conclusion that 3D is never going to be as good as my imagination (what chance does it have?) and so it just turns me off entirely. The 2D classic, however, gives me just enough detail and I can fill in the rest. I also much prefer the top down view, as I find it better for judging my tactics and looking at patterns of play and player positions. It also means that I can always see the player numbers and thus easily identify who is who, which I find irritating on 3D because I can't get used to not always being able to see the numbers etc.

    Will definitely get FM11. Probably won't immediately start a career game or my challenge though, I have a lot of coursework and I already stopped my last FM10 career game.

    What is it with you guys and your mega PCs. I'm very jealous. Think of us poor chaps with our prehistoric laptops that chug along with just one country loaded. ;)

    When I do come to start an FM11 save, I will have to make use of the DLR feature really, as it's the only thing that is making me approach the feeling of excitement. I'll might try India or Wales and aim to build up the reputation of those leagues. The other save I quite fancy is a Scandinavian or Nordic journeyman game where perhaps I can increase the reputation of some of those countries by improving how their clubs fare in European competitions. I will definitely have a quick Saints save to test my data.

    Likewise for me DLR is the only main pull of FM11. One thing which makes me not super keen to get the new game as soon as possible is that I'm really enjoying my career game this season and I don't want to bring it to an end just yet. This is different to the past few releases when I'd been playing small to big club challenges on CSE. If the challenge was complete, then I was ready to move onto the next game. This year, there's no challenge, just a career and it's not over yet... ;)

    I'm pretty much done with FM10 career games...just doing a small club to big club challenge in my spare time and holiday mega-saves to test how well it can cope with so many leagues...bring on FM11!

    I'll buy FM11 as soon as it comes out.

    Gonna try and have one save all through the year.

    Probably going to start with 1860 Munich or SpVgg Greuther Furth. I have thread names already planned ;)

    Outside bets are Sporting Lisbon and IFK Norrkoping.

    My thread names are going to be original and boring - more Crazy Canuck threads.

    Continental Dominance version 2 will probably be my title thread. I will undertake the same challenge as I did on FM10 and try to win every continents version of the champions league. Will have a Sunderland career and Crewe as usual, I will have a few other games in Spain but only career threads about the continents game and maybe a Sunderland one.

    Forgot to add: I will make sure my new career game is set up so I can have a crack at AcidBurn's challenge at the same time, thus fufilling my FMCU and CSE fixes in one shot!

    Been watching them loads lately, even thought of having a triple fried egg sandwich with chilli sauce and chutney will have to try it at the weekend.

    Good to see a few people interested in taking up the challenge, having quite relaxed rules means that lots of journey man games will qualify to do the challenge. I would do more but they use the attribute masking which I hate.

    Awesome. Always wanted to try one of those!

    What an awesome comedy though. Series 1 & series 2 are probably my favourites. Series 3, 4, 5, 6 all solid and enjoyable.

    But series 7 & 8 upset me greatly. :mad:

    I think the first 6 seasons are pure genius then 7 and 8 are pretty poor and the new ones well they were so bad I only watched the first episode.
