    I really have no idea why I continue to rise to you, but, for one last time - there's no way to provide Mac pre-orders, so the link only goes live when the game is available. At a guess I'd say, oooh, somewhere around October 30th.

    Actually, it should do, some time tomorrow.

    Just for clarification Matt, you are referring to October 30th in our respective timezones or is there an absolute October 30th? I'm not trying to be rude or pushy, I just would like to know one way or the other so I can put my mind at rest until release.

    GMT would be my bet.

    Honestly I don't know. I'd say there's a good chance but really, I'd need to check with SI.

    On a separate note Matt are SI/SEGA aware that the game is now available on most of the major torrent websites? This again replicates last years problem though in a different way whereby because of the DRM issues pirates were playing before paying customers - this time because they have their hands on the copies early then the pirated versions are already done and up before the full official release from Steam. This could well cost the companies money especially when they have an express aim to stamp out piracy and I think makes the most compelling reason for moving the release date forward.

    The postal stuff guys is companies trying to ensure that their customers aren't affected by Royal Mail - it does suck for us that have ordered with Steam that *some* people have it before us but by no means all of the Pre-Order postal people will have it beforehand and many may still be delayed. I felt we all had legitmate concern earlier when it looked like it was the 31st on steam but now it isnt then we dont have the right to demand/by angry about an unforseen situation.

    However as mentioned the torrent situation would be the one I would consider if I was SI or Sega.

    Appreciate the situation and can only apologise that people are getting annoyed. Unfortunately there's only so much we can do and we've been let down.

    I'll check the patch tomorrow.

    Not annoyed - im happy provided that its released as advertised - though I accept some people are.

    Just simply pointing it out as piracy threatens the production and quality of future versions of the game I and everyone else here loves!

    And thanks for checking for the patch.

    Matt--I know it's complicated, I understand. But you gotta understand that the ones here are the ones who refuse to get the game in some other obscure way, we appreciate you guys' efforts...but at the end of the day we're just anxious to play it, that's all

    Thanks for sticking around.

    Preload is available on Steam now - rightclick on the game to select.

    Does this mean a possible early release? Thought it wasnt going to be loaded to Steam until later? ;)

    The question got ignored because off the Steam-issue, so here it goes again.
    My brother doesn't like steam so I wondered if he could play with the DVD based protect... and I could play with steam.
    Anybody?

    Steam lives in theyr own little world so wouldnt be surprised if it released later, but if it isnt ready to play when I wake up friday, then I'm going to get a refund from steam and never use them again...

    Can anyone please tell me if preloading is going to be available from GAME/Gameplanet as well, or is this just a steam thing? I've received no download links from GAME by email yet...has anyone else?

    The email I got from GAME when I ordered my digital download from there, seemed to suggest we'd be able to download it earlier, and then at 00.01 Friday they'd send us our activation codes?

    Newbie Q:

    Just to make sure; if I download fm10 then I won't need the CD but will I need an internet connection (after i've finished downloading)? I'm off to Oz (among other places) and face about 60hrs flying. To make it all a little easier I'm taking FM with me to ease the pain!

    Hey Guys,

    In work at the moment, just wanted to check if I'll be able to predownload my game D2drive today or is it only Steam.

    Used D2D as it was 29.99 where as Steam wanted 50 EUR! I taught digital downloads were going to make things cheaper!

    Love the demo, can't wait to get going on a full game.

    Thanks

    Hi everyone.

    Just pre-loaded game from Steam. Thing is, I have no activation code for some reason. Do I need one? And, if so, how do I obtain it? Cheers!

    No Steam doesnt need you to enter any codes.

    When its released Steam will unlock it, tell you, and then you can play.

    SEGA Matt - Mac User Alert!

    Can you buy a retail copy of the game, then download through eSellerate and activate using a key that is included on the retail copy to get round the cd in drive problem?

    If this isn't possible will you be able to create an ISO image (virtual cd/drive) and just run that to the alleviate the need to have the CD in the drive all the time?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I doubt it, Steam users have been able to pre-download since midnight yesterday, I ordered my digital download from somewhere else too (GAME/Gameplanet), and like you I have heard nothing. I'm assuming we'll have to do the full download at 00.01

    It would be nice if it was possible, Steam are a complete rip off, at least D2D works well with my 02 broadband. I'd like to download it tonight and then go home tomorrow and play, not much to ask but I've a feeling Sega and Steam have some type of agreement.

    Yea well at the the end of the day, as long as I get my download links emailed to me at 00.01 tonight, I'll be happy I guess. Just a shame we can't get the downloading out of the way beforehand like Steam users.

    Its nothing to do with Sega...

    All steam games in Euro countries use 1 euro = 1 dollar conversions.

    Its only the UK and Australia that get different prices thanks to the pound and the Aussie dollar.

    Dont ask me why, its just that way. Nobody forces people to use steam so you cant complain.

    Eh so I can't complain, actually I can and just have. You are correct in saying that nobody forces me to use Steam, I don't use Steam.

    Sega can not tell a retailer to set the price, as obviously this is illegal. My point was do Steam and Sega have an agreement that Steam are the only direct download company allowed to use pre loads. I would love to be able to pre load mine to 99% today and then go home tomorrow and do the last 1%. But I used D2D which means I'll have to do it tomorrow night when I get back from work and it will be pretty late till the download is completed.

    Do any of the other providers offer preloading as a service?

    Not sure to be honest with you, that could be the issue. It would be nice if they all did but I think I seen other games on D2D that you could, I'll have a gander on their page, might try their customer service. Would love to get a few games in on Friday but sure it won't be the end of the world if I have to wait till saturday to play, it will give me something to do during the ten hours or so of the girlfriend watching the x factor!

    Actually, the wording of the email I received from GAME/Gamplanet when I placed my order seems to suggest we would be able to pre-download from there:

    We're pleased to confirm your pre-order of Football Manager 2010.
    We will send you your download links for the game via email the moment they are available then, on the day of release, the 30/10/2009 at 00:01, you'll get an email with your activation key.


    That indicates that we will get our download links before our activation key, so we will be able to download it, just not play it till they send us our activation key at 00.01. Unfortunately though it doesn't seem like that is happening. I emailed them asking about this yesterday and have had no response.

    Why? That's the best we could hope for, if the game gets released at midnight tonight. I am sure Matt doesn't want to commit and say it just incase it doesn't happen, but we certainly weren't going to get it any sooner of steam.

    Probably should have ordered a boxed copy, would have had it by now.

    Probably should have ordered a boxed copy, would have had it by now.

    Matt,

    Will someone be updating this thread as soon as the esellerate link is available ?

    Or a time when it should be available ?

    I'm hoping it will be just after midnight, shame steam don't properly support MAC versions!

    Sorry, this has probably already been mentioned. Was just wondering whether it will be possible to download the game from one of the sites onto say a hard drive/usb key and then install it onto a different computer? Afraid I'm still on dial-up here at home so was hoping it might be possible to download the game at the internet caf in town and then install it on the laptop back in the house. Cheers.

    Can i get a simple answer here, as I've trawled through thread after thread and cannot seem to find one(most likely I've just overlooked it mind! )

    Will I be able to download and play FM2010 in 8 hours time (friday morning) or do i have to wait 1 day and 8 hours like my steam account said.

    I don't want to pre order with steam if i am going to be forced to wait any longer than i need to!

    thanks for the reply

    Tanzinho - someone rather kindly just posted this link in another thread http://store.steampowered.com/app/34000/ so it looks like it's 7 hours away again now (at least for me)

    del55 - I might be wrong but I think you should be able to copy and paste all the files in your steamapps folder, as steam themselves encourage you to do so when you want to move all your games to another hard drive etc to save on download time. Whether you can actively chose to install to a usb or not I don't know. The problem you'll face at an internet cafe is whether they'll let you install stuff on their computers, unless it's just a wireless hotspot. I'd probably just find somewhere with wireless broadband, take my lappy and download it there and then.

    Obviously you'll still need to access all your copied stuff through your steam account, so it knows you're a legit customer, before any accuses me of rampant piracy...

    And still on dialup?! Where do you live, the Orkney Islands?!

    Question about digital downloads, Game is doing it over here in the UK. And basically I'm wondering, will the game still run fine? Will I have any problems with 3rd party editors, utilities and such. Also, if my computer crashed, would I still be able to re-install the game if I saved it to a disc, or is that illegal?

    As stated in many threads, including this one, the original release date stands and the alternative steam date was a mistake.

    Midnight unlocking has officially won Steam my support. Just bought the game, currently pre-loading.

    I guess I can play a couple of hours of coast to coast! Shame you couldn't have unlocked just the data-editor part today. :P

    Oh I was planning to use steam regardless, but my first choice was to buy the box in store, then add the code to steam.

    It is kinda sad. I have every Football Manager since FM06 sitting in my games rack next to me, so 2010 had a place reserved for it. FM05, CM4 and CM03/04 were lost when I moved to my current place, and any older than that used to be sold on to a friend every year to help fund the new game.

    The last news on the patch I heard is that they hope it'll be out at midnight, but don't guarantee anything. They can't guarantee it'll be out tomorrow yet I don't think, that's just the plan. :P

    Hey
    I haven't read all the questions/answers, so I don't know if this question has been answered before, but:
    Can I buy the game in a shop (get the CD and all that stuff) and then download a digital version and use the code there? My CD/DVD drive do not work, so I have to download it digitally (can't use Steam, I'm a Mac) - and can I just enter a code I get when I buy the game in a shop near me and then play, or do I have to pay to download it digitally?

    If you use mac, I can pretty much guarantee you'll have to buy the game from a DD partner to use it without the dvd in the drive, as the store bought copies will just have a STEAM code, no seriel key.

    I can't play the demo.

    One league, small database, I know it's all meaningless. Fine to check the game out, but no chance it'll survive past midnight anyway...

    So you're saying I'd be better off creating a new game when FM2010 is released and not using my savegame? Well that sucks! Didn't realise i couldn't add in the other leagues when the game launched.
