    Another great update nep! You should manage Chimney Corner just for the name

    What would you do if your new team faced Knockbreda though?

    The dream is over, for now. My laptop isn't working, can't figure out why, and might never get the save game back

    God I hope I can fix it..!!

    Is the dream dead.

    It must be gutting all that time and effort and achieving the unachievable.

    To be fair, it is unlikely there is n chance of recovery. You could take out your harddrive, put it in another computer and get the save from there. Might need to get a PC expert to do it though.

    I have a mac. [Am using my GFs laptop to post right now] - and the issue could be an error with the mother board, or a problem with the hard drive. if the hard drive is faulty, then I wont get the game back, if its not, then I'll be ok, even if I have to get a new computer. I have back ups [four of them] - but they're all on the computer, and I never got around to putting them on my external. I save at the end of ecery season to a different section on my laptop, so if there are any fatal game errors, I can just go back a season and carry on. It'll teach me not to be bothered to move them over to the external, despite the fact it sits no more than 3 feet away from me

    Well there it is. No need to panic. After spending the last 6 hours trawling through forums trying to find out what could be wrong with the Mac I'm now typing from, I finally found the solution. 1 site suggested the ram was not correctly placed, and maybe got knocked out in moving the laptop. I opened the casing, resat the ram, and restarted the computer. Nothing.

    1 site suggested, that I could need a master reset, and to hold the power button down, along with some other buttons. That didn't work.

    In the end, a friend contacted me just as I was typing the message above, to tell me that I need to let the computer know, that I've re-sat the Ram, by holding the power button down until the LED light flashes 1 per second. I did that, re-sat the Ram again, and hey presto, we're back on board. I'm so happy. I'm going to bed now though.

    Good news Nep! It must have been really heartbreaking to think that you were going to lose your best ever save and... gulp... Smylie... gone for ever... *holds back the tears*

    That's good to hear.

    That does prove my teachers point of having backup's in different places. Get a pen drive (or 2) to hold the save, updating it every so often as well, and the external hard drive as well, then next time there is less panic.

    Tbf 1 FM save isn't too big, for a fiver you could buy a memory stick to put a save from every season on...

    Ok chaps. Eager to take on a second club, I'll offer up the choices here for this season :

    Ards Rangers
    2011/12 - Second Division
    2045/46 - Second Division

    N. Irish Intermediate Cup Winners - 2009, 2027

    That is the only history they have.

    Barn United
    2041-2046 - Second Division

    That is the only history they have.

    All other clubs in the division, have been there for 15 or more seasons. I don't expect the chances of an new club getting promoted are very high, and like the look of Ards Rangers.

    I would change the name of the club to something exclusive too, perhaps you guys can give me some ideas? - and try my best to get them into the same light as Knockbreda.

    I also ask....

    Should I keep the 2 clubs separate completely, or allow myself to loan players to Ards from my Reserve team?

    Take the loans. Why not? Presumably that's what you'd do anyway? If the players won't join, too bad.

    .edt files have no effect after the game has started.

    I'm with SCIAG - take the loans and help yourself out.

    I'm voting for Ards Rangers and I don't think you need to change their name because it is already good!

    Bugger Have you backed up the files Nep?

    Loan a laptop that can run FM08 cheaply and continue with the same in the meantime

    I'd take the loans as they will be neccesary due to how much more competetive the league will be than when you started the challenge.

    Team name idea - Nepbreda!

    I didn't back up the files, because I'm at work. I'm hoping desperately that I can start it up just once, so I can e-mail the files to myself. Unless some computer whizz knows how I can get files from the HD of a computer that doesn't work. [I have other Macs I can use]

    Try booting from a Linux Live CD such as Ubuntu. That way you can mount the hard drive and move the files onto a USB

    I seems to me like Ards have less history. Sure, they bagged a trophy, but they've been in the division for a lot less time than Barn.

    God i hope it works Smylie provides me motivation to play FM. I couldn't stand a few weeks without your reports Nep I want Bernard Brennan (See my Dafuge's Challenge Reviews/Posts) to bag as many goals as possible. He'll get well over 500/600 at this rate in a far superior league

    Its not looking good, if I'm honest. I mean sure, I could get the save game. But then I have a few other problems.

    1. The FM08 disk is inside the Mac, and doesn't eject.
    2. Where the hell would I play it?

    The other computers I have access too, won't play the game, because they're either crap, or not mine

    All of the followers of Smylie and Knockbreda could chip in for you to get a new laptop.

    I hope you can get it sorted Nep.

    If you need a new copy of FM 08, I am sure you could get one on the cheap.

    Or you could ask someone around here if they have a copy they don't use, and if they are willing to post it to you.

    Cheers guys. I can afford a new laptop, but I'll be getting my own one back, so it would be pointless. I might by FM08 again, if the wait is going to be upwards of 10 days. [I'll find out Monday how long, could have it back as early as Wednesday] - and if so, I'll have to HiJack the GF's laptop for a week

    It should automatically eject when you end the live session (i.e., reboot or shutdown).

    If not, I find mashing the eject button on the computer while it's booting does the trick. The one downside of slot loaders...

    Nep - Isn't there a button on the underside of the laptop that ejects the disk? I had the same problem a few years ago when my laptop died and i needed the disk from the drive.

    I don't think there is on a Mac. Too late now, for any of it. I've sent it off.

    So I can't get the save game file back, until I get my computer back. Gutted

    I just did two weeks (likely to be three now).

    I missed the 2.000 day.

    1st thread I've visited since coming back!

    In 4 days I will go away for another two weeks. /o\

    And of course I hope you recover the files.

    Quite a good file here, I believe. I have a similar save with Albert Foundry (in the premier league, got a prolific goalscorer called Adam Rowley) but haven't won the league yet. Been finding it hard to capitalise. Might boot it up again now. You've given me the motivation

    Seems I was a bit late, only just found this forum. Hopefully you get your save back though.

    I had a problem with my mac where the graphics died but would still boot but couldnt see anything. I used target disk mode to back everything up and had to send it away.

    I'm 5 games from the end of the season and top with Albert foundry, 3 points clear of Linfield. I am starting to believe I can win it for the first time ever.

    I actually had a dream about supporting Knockbreda the other night.

    I was in a crowd and we (Knockbreda) were playing away from home. Everyone was chanting something and I remember being aware that Knockbreda were playing well and probably winning. There were a lot of banners in the away end but this one guy was holding up a banner with 'Knockabreda' written on it. I was absolutely outraged with his misspelling the name of the club.

    Can't remember if Smylie was playing or not!

    That'll teach me for surfing the careers forum before I go to bed.

    Regards,
    C.

    that sounds like a wierd dream. I actually couldn't sleep for a while last night due to becoming champions of Northern Ireland. Some achievment, I guess, but it was the first time I had taken a team from Bottom to top.

    Also, does anyone know how to trigger professionalism in Northern Ireland? It would take quite a while to gain 5M in the bank, and Linfield have it even though they only have 3.7M in the bank. Anyone know (in particular NepentheZ)?

    I've just thought of another achievment when (or if) you get your game back- win more premier league titles than Linfield. They've got something ridiculous, into the 50's. Would be some achievment to top them as the most succesful northern Irish club ever based on number of titles. Obviously, you have more quality with two champions leagues, but quantity....their history page is the most loaded of any club I have seen (including Celtic and Rangers and Ferencvaros)

    Hopefully I can sort of replicate (not a chance ) your Success in my Albert save. I've just notched up my second ever league title, and been inducted into the Northern Irish hall of fame. Hopefully this will give me the chance to turn pro, eh?

    You should now mate. If you continue to win the league, like I have, it all just rolls on from there. I'll see you in 30 seasons, and we can compare. [Hopefully I'll have my computer back by then ]

    I just hope you have anything personal password-protected. It has come out that computer repair shops have been opening private folders and taking information and pictures which they shouldn't, but I'm sure there's nothing to worry about as most computer repair shops across the UK are likely to be under review after the incident.

    I just don't know how you do it Nep! I've been running a FM08 game as Lisburn Rangers for ages now, and I'm up to about 2027 now and I still can't see how you have achieved so much! It seems like every 2 years every key player (except the home-grown ones) get stroppy and so I have to rejig my squad again. I'm in the top 50 club ratings now and reaching knockout stages of CL and EC but no reputation boost and I still can't get anyone to sign outside of eastern europe mainly.

    You have a super stadium too, yet I'm only at around 18000 and it only gets increased by about 3000 every two years following planning permission hiccups.

    So just how did you manage to get so far? Can you impart some wisdom to me to get me up to that next level?

    P.S My homegrown 21 year old striker just scored 88 last season in all comps, bringing him close to 300 already, NI definitely is the league to be in, though my guy is no Smylie!

I also lose key players every season almost, but I have about 50 players in my reseves, all highly recommended by my scouts, so usually there is someone to fit right in. I'm trying hard to get rid the foreign players, because I want to win everything with a fully homegown squad in the next 5-10 years

    Nep, just a query, what kind of players can you scout and also get on player search screen? I rarely get anyone above 700k from either eastern europe or south america. I am guessing you can do a lot more. Did that only happen after you won the UEFA Cup or before?

    Nep adds it into his player's names as a way of keeping track of the best ones.

    His value is probably low because of that asking price of £0 Nep has set.

    IIRC, I could get players up to about £8,000,000 on my player search screen.

    His value is low because I'm in N. Ireland, and for no other reason Even when his value wasn't set at £0 - he was only valued @ £1,200,000

    Well done.
    it's part of a thread in the 'Challenges, Sign Up and Experiments' forum, where people track progress of their 'Youth Players', which generally means the the best player of each years intake. The thread is called 'Neppo's Youth Project 09' which coincidentally is run by Nep himself.

    I've just noticed Smylie's most recent value in the OP

    £575K? Ok,its in Northern Ireland and the quality of the league is not the best, but if you were an english club, someone with that many goals to his name in any league is worth a £1M punt surely?

    Not saying you would sell, because of the 3000 goal thing, but in theory.

    I still don't have my Mac back. It initially went in diagnosed with an issue, which they fixed. However, this didn't fix my computer, so now, they need to test all different parts. The only problem is, Apple only send 1 part at a time out to be tested, so until they find the correct part that is broken, I wont get it back. It could be Monday, it could be Friday, it could be weeks away. I really don't know

    First game back, and incidentally, the first game of the 2046/47 season.

    Knockbreda 16 - 0 Ards

    Youth Player 1 [Scored 6]
    Andrew Smylie [Scored 8]
    Cano
    Manco



    41 Shots in total

    the 2 Strikers had 27 shots between them and Cano had 8. So 35 of the 41 shots were from 3 players
