    Default dafuge's FM10 challenge

    The Aim

    To take a small club who were previously unplayable in the game from the Blue Square N/S to Premier League and Champions League glory.


    The Rules

    Just like last year, to make sure that the eligible teams have the correct squads, we will be using a .ddt file to retain the players for those teams. Download Link Alternative download link. If for any reason these don't work, let me know, I'll fix them.

    Here's where it needs to go:

    Vista - C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt
    Steam - C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\data\db\1000\edt

    Or with the 10.2.0 patch, here:

    C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\data\updates\update-1020\db\1020\edt

    To make sure it is working, when you set up your game, go to preferences - extra files. You should see it listed and ticked in there like this.

    Load a game with the English leagues only, with the Blue Square N/S selected, a large database (or smaller if preferred), the attribute masking, real players and transfer boxes ticked and the add key staff box unticked. It should look like this.

    In addition this year, for those of you who want to add to the database to make things more competitive at the top level in the long term, you can set the database level to custom to add the players for the top clubs in each continent. It should look like this. This is purely optional, but no extra players can be loaded on top of this, this is the limit.

    The extra levels of detail that you can change while in the game are up to you, as they shouldn't make a difference.

    Add yourself as an unemployed manager, the details are not important at all. I like to call mine 'Holiday Man'.

    Go on holiday until 25th June, this shouldn't take too long, perhaps about an hour. Saving on 24th June may give you a better choice of teams by reloading the game then going on holiday for one day, I would strongly recommend trying this.

    Retire your 'Holiday Man' manager. After spending his entire career on holiday I'd love to know how he spends his retirement.

    Add a new manager, the options are up to you but 'past experience' must be set to the lowest possible which is 'Sunday league footballer'. I understand that choosing different nationalities may have an effect later on, but I trust people will be sensible with this. I would expect people to use their own true nationalities.

    Whena adding a new manager, choose one of the new clubs promoted to the Blue Square North or South to manage. They should appear in this list which also shows the reputation of the possible clubs. The reputation should act as a difficulty level, the lower the reputation, the harder your game should be.

    * reputations updated with 10.3 patch.

    It is now up to you to manage this club all the way to the Premier League title and UEFA Champions League crown.

    You may not move clubs unless you are sacked.

    If you get sacked, you can either take over a newly promoted club that satisfies the original criteria (check the club's league history), or just start again.

    Any form of international management is not allowed, until you have completed the challenge.

    Assigning parent clubs and loaning players is completely up to the player, although it should be noted that on occasions a parent club can lend players which will make the first season or two slightly less of a challenge. It is completely up to you how you play this one, but everyone knows real men don't use parent club loans. Personally, I like to assign a parent club for financial benefits but never take any players on loan from them.

    To sign a player, you must be able to scout them, this doesn't mean you have to, just he must be accessible to your scouts. If you have a foreign player on a free transfer who is willing to come on trial, you do not need to be able to scout them, as long as you have them at the club on trial so you can get a coach report on him.

    No external utilities such as scouting programs should be used and the database should be unedited, this is particularly important with the new changes to the editor. Should SI release a data update, this would be allowed but any other data updates are not. It is advised that people should update using the latest patches as they are released, we have waited for 10.1 before starting so I would expect to see everyone using it from day one.

    Use of save game editors is strictly banned, whatever the reason.


    Rules for this Thread

    Player naming is allowed.

    General discussion on tactics is allowed, although people should not refer to downloaded tactics. They are not banned, but I would expect the majority of people to avoid them.

    Screenshots for anything are encouraged but please post links to your pictures, don't post them as images as it makes the pages slower to load. Posts included embedded images may be deleted without warning.

    When you join the challenge, could you post a screenshot of your manager's profile on the 25th June like this.

    Progress of your club should be documented using this thread, we want to hear the story of your club all the way through. Please keep us updated, even if you are doing really badly.

    At the end of every season, could everyone post some kind of season review, including at least a screenshot of a league table and the clubs transfer page. If you give this a title in bold it makes it a bit easier to pick out.

    Sadly we no longer have the website to track our progress, so there will not be any full tables posted as there have been in the past. I will try and keep a table of PL and CL wins and completions going, so if you win either competition for the first time please make it clear in your end of season review.


    How to Post a Screenshot
    • While in FM, press Alt and F9
    • A picture will be saved to a screenshots folder, in the FM10 folder in your documents
    • Upload the image to an image hosting website such as Photobucket
    • Post the direct Url to the image here.
    How to Add Links

    At the top of the forum, go to 'Settings' then 'General Settings' (on the left). At the bottom, select 'enhanced interface' and save the changes. This will give you access to the extra posting tools that make it easier to post links. Once you've done this, highlight the word you wish to turn into a link, then use the link button (looks like a little globe) to paste in the direct Url to your screenshot.

    Enjoy

    With this custom database, my computer performance is currently rated at one star, as is the expected game speed. This is going to be interesting.

    On the star rating there seems to be a baffling issue there, I am rated at 1 star, yet I can run a holiday season in about 20-30mins...

    After several reloads trying to get Kendal Town I gave up when they didn't appear. I instead decided to go for Hucknall when they popped up.

    I didn't really play the demo much so I'm finding a lot of cool stuff for the first time. I love how on the player instruction screen for tactics the game tells you which attributes are necessary for the role of that position. Should make signing the right players easier...

    You have legit squads? Do I have to use the editor or something? I've never used extra files before.

    I'm finally in. With no Truro City available, I plumped for Merthyr Tydfil. I even have a Mourinhoesque jacket as you can see.

    Let's see how I do with a striker with a BSS-beating amount of Pace and Finishing but Decisions and Anticipation 1 and Composure 3. It's a shame that there's a rather large data flaw - Gloucester City were promoted with us and IRL Merthyr would be fierce rivals with them. On the game, there's nothing.

    Well played.

    And I have just won the first game, a good sign of things to come I hope.

    Also discovered we only sold 48 season tickets...

    I think I'll wait until the morning to play my first game and get some sleep in the meantime. Strangely, I arrived at the club to be greeted by an assistant manager/coaches/physios etc despite being sure that I unchecked the 'key staff' box. I may have to take a financial hit in order to ship out the dead wood.

    I am 100% sure I unticked it and I still had a assistant and a physio.

    Im not sure whether ill should be startin this challenge now or wait untill some of you guys has played several years to see if there is any game killing bugs..
    I would hate to start a great game just to find out that the manager contract bug is back again or something else that ruins the game!

    So could someone please use every hour of the next week to play the game, so i can get started.

    Thx

    There are no leagues to download, this challenge does not use the editor at all. I'm expecting another challenge to be started that does use it though.

    Thanks for that. I should have added, if anyone has locations for other ways of installing the game then post them here and I'll add them to the OP.

    Truro, Durham, Hemel Hempstead or Waltham Abbey. Anything else is just nothing really.

    I deffo want Durham for sentimental values. Truro could be popular given the fact there are no Cornish teams in the professional ranks.

    Check out the wiki entry as well. Seems as if they are something of a sleeping giant!

    About to holiday now. COuldn't commit to any one club last year. Gonna try and resurrect the once Chelsea of Essex AFC Hornchurch. If not I'll try for Durham having unied near there several years ago. Bring on the holiday.

    PS, my holiday manager becomes a travel agent after he retires.

    Well I have the patch downloaded at least. Shame I have no game to put it on yet! Can't believe Parcelforce failed to deliver yesterday, first time GAME haven't got me a game before launch day.

    Anyways to those of you who have started, good luck. I really hope to be joining the fun this evening.

    Finally, after about half an hour of reloading I got the team I wanted: Tooting & Mitcham

    Here's my profile picture

    They've got a decent 8000 capacity stadium and finances the right side of zero, so I am confident I can beat the media prediction of 22nd.

    Dafuge; did you make a screenshot of some regen for your manager picture, or is there a way to get a 'regen'-head for yourself?

    No, you need to use the ddt file. Loading all the players from England gives you a much bigger database I think.

    I'm on board for this; just installed the game, managed to get it to run (bloody directx update) and have added the ddt file thing.

    One question - is it ok if I add other leagues at the start, e.g. if I complete it, I may want to manage somewhere random like Indonesia or Ireland etc if I get bored. Is that within the rules?

    Nope. It will give you an advantage of having players from other leagues available.

    That would mean the promoted teams would have no players at the start.
    Is this within the rules?

    Was the game running when you put it in that location? You could try quitting and then re-opening FM

    Here we go then kids and true to my word Ian Smithe my holiday manager decided to become a travel agent after a year on the dole checking the numerous football news outlets for job opportunities and getting nowt. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I waltzed in from nowhere after an hour of job hunting to take the AFC Hornchurch job.

    The Hornchurch board said that having a true local could help take the club forward.

    I be here.

    22nd is what is predicted but I know these boys. They are capable of so much more and the fact that fellow former Essex non-league big boys Canvey have been promoted as well means that we have a rivalry straight from the off.

    Bring it on...

    Save the file to the folder.

    If this fails you could download a save game from someone else as that should have players retained.

    Had my first friendly against AFC Wimbledon, went 3-0 down early on. So changed to a more direct counter-attacking style and we start tearing them apart. Thanks mostly to a new signing, regen Craig Rodger. 16 for pace, 17 for acceleration and 12 for heading should make him pretty useful... 5 for finishing though! We still lost 3-1, but I learned a lot in the process.

    Scotland seems to be the place to go to find young, free players.

    It is patch compatible.

    For those having trouble do you load the file before you create the game.
