    Please do.

    It'd be silly for a challenge with over 4,000 posts not top be reposted, somebody else would have posted it anyway.

    Is the .ddt file required to start the challenge? Just wondering if I should start my dafuge game right at game launch or wait until dafuge posts the new thread.

    AFAIK the DDT file only retained players for the tier 7 clubs. You can do this manually this year through the Database Size>Custom>specify conditions>players in division then select the 3 tier 7 divisions English Isthmian League Premier Division, English Southern League Premier Division and English Northern Premier League Premier Division). This is on the new game overview screen at set up.

    quick question @ dafuge. Does that mean I can finally manage FC United on FM12?

    what I mean is, is dafuge making some kind of new league for the lower teams? As low as FC United are, coz I really want to play as them for a good challenge!

    FC united are in the Northern Premier League Premier Division so can be played if they get promoted

    Yeah I read that. But is dafuge making custom league for the Northern Premier League Premier Divison? Coz that's what I thought this thread was about...

    no. its not about custom leagues.
    What you do is holiday for a year and see who gets promoted to the BSS/BSN. Then use one of those teams and take them to glory

    Sorry my post may have been ambiguous. What I was saying was that you can now make sure that when the clubs do get promoted to the BSN or BSs they'll have the right players. You used to have to use a special file. Apologies for any confusion caused.

    Looking forward to the new thread.

    I'm going to be in here for the first time in my FM career as my favourite team, St. Albans City, were relegated to step 3 last season. So, it's time for me to take on the famous Dafuge's challenge!

    I'm glad it is. All though not a regular on your challenge this year (I actually got bored with FM11), I have always enjoyed your challenge. It is the very first one I play. So a new Fm version without Dafuge's Challenge would be like to play football without boots.

    I've been reloading a few times and kept a few saves. No-one jumping out at me yet. Need to see the rankings. Harrow has only come up once - don't know how they fare in terms of rank

    haha same Lanthal.
    FC United seem to be the team that get promoted the most at the moment for me. The "rare" ones i have saved are canvey island, carshalton, hitchin, marine, redditch and worksop. maybe there are others that i just didnt notice.
    I have seen Met Police yet which is making me really sad, mainly because its nearly midnight and i should be in bed

    I'm hoping to be either AFC Totton or Wingate & Finchley, although as these have just been promoted to Level 7 IRL I expect that is a little optimistic.

    Via the editor. If someone wants to have a look themselves, just load the db, make a Competitions search for "English", pick the league you want to check, then go to "Teams" and sort by the "Reputation" header.

    Chasetown, Cray, Totton and Whitby really interest me up to now but likely be impossible. Will reload quite a few times so will upload any rare ones I see.

    I've only just got back from work, so it may be a little later than I'd hoped.

    Will still be this evening though, although it might mean I'll start the thread without really testing it properly first.

    Any thoughts on the setup this year? Does the ability to add leagues on the fly change anything?

    Someone mentioned something about the ddt file not being necessary this year ?

    We've never added any leagues, so unfortunately that feature won't make any difference. Unless we go for free choice on loading leagues?

    I haven't looked into the custom player retaining yet, but that may well mean the ddt is no longer needed.

    I know. It just means that ppl have an easier way to add players/leagues. At least I think it should be mentioned in the rules that adding leagues on the fly is not legal.

    I still think the challenge should be as authentic as possible, meaning the league setup should be the same as usual.

    The only difference i usually run is having australia on view only so I can see how my Brisbane Roar are doing :P
