    I just came here to post the same thing. Like yankee-ram I have the game running but I'll feel better when the receipt comes, I'm anal about keeping these things. At least I have my transaction ID printed out. I hope they sold thousands of copies and the mailer just hasn't caught up yet

    I saw you had problems earlier in the day, glad to see you are at least up and running
    Hopefully if the receipts don't come soon Marc can sort it out for us.

    I am now downloading the game as well and at about 950kb/s.

    25% is done so another 6 minutes or so and the download will be over.

    Small problem, I live in the US and I want a freaking copy of FM2008 not WWSM. The next person to tell me that they are are the same thing will get e-stabbed in the face. When will FM be available?

    I'm planning on buying a Macbook Pro as well.
    I'm pretty sure the game will work just fine in either Boot Camp or Parrallels Desktop.

    don't hold your breath.

    fwiw, it's when 8.0.1 is released.

    Whats wrong with WWSM that you just have to get FM instead.

    Any way I can get that separately?
    As far as we are aware there should be. What OS are you on </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Can anyone conrfirm if there is an editor included? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    For what it's worth, the editor is not where it was for WSM 2007 (at least not for me) - Start, All Programs, Sports Interactive, Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 - definitely not there.

    But it can be located through C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 - just double-click on "data editor" - it's the top file which is not a folder for me.

    Just as an FYI in case anybody's having trouble finding it.

    I just don't want WWSM, I've played FM since ever and don't want to switch to anything that has the word "soccer" in it.

    change the language to English and you'll be good to go. ignore the WWSM branding, it's not a big deal.

    So you wont buy it because it has soccer in the title? That is rather snobish of you.

    I wonder where exactly do you deposit your feces? Certainly not in a 'bathroom' or a 'restroom'. You must hold it until you can fly across the Atlantic and use the 'loo'.

    You're the ****** for not wanting to play the exact same game which will cost you cheaper and get to you faster as well, just because it has a different 'title'.

    WWSM fully downloaded, installed and played now.

    Tested everything including running the editor and all seems to be fine.

    Well done SI.

    Well my download certainly didn't work. I followed the instruction and nothing happens. I then checked the Bootygames folders that where setup in my program folder and they are empty.
    It also installed a download icon on my desktop that does nothing either. I'm assuming the download manager involves a few files, but I have nothing but 2 empty folders. I sent them a problem report so I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

    Mine *seems* to have worked. I clicked the button, sent the $$ info, there was a download (which does NOT work with OPERA! - once I changed to explorer, everything worked fine again).

    But then it said it was sending me an email (which I never got). And that I needed to follow a bunch of verification instructions - which I never got an opportunity to do, since the game downloaded, and started working just fine. I saved the instructions just in case.

    The game seems to be working fine - I set up a game with all the leagues (a LOT of them) and tried out some of the new features, saved a game, reloaded a game.

    The nagging doubt I have is that it seemed too easy - and even easier than they were telling me during the process. I just sat back and let the game load.

    Maybe I worry too much. Maybe I need to get my mind off things. Maybe managing a second division Russian team fighting relegation with no budget will help me relax.

    Since we're doing IP lookups you will never be able to buy FM08 digitally. The only version available to you is WWSM. Sorry

    Sorry, been in a meeting since I got here today so worked backwards through my mails.

    Turns out that the Boonty servers had some downtime last night which might account for some of the issues faced here.

    I had no problems at all, aside from not receiving a confirmation email. But I was smart enough (*cough cough*) to print out the confirmation page when ordering (*hint hint*).

    Thanks SI....you've retained my loyalty.

    this canadian is happy with his new SOCCER game (*dig dig* at the 'elitist'*)

    Seems like Boonty are working through the emails as I've had a couple of people say that since they mailed me they've had confirmation.

    Any news on the error i posted yesterday?
    Could it be i am clicking on "Buy it now" button?

    Another user posted here that he used the "unlock" button... but i can't use it from here, since i am at work right now... should i try that at home? or is it safe to do it here?

    The error your posted and the two screenshots are also affecting some other users. I've forwarded to boonty but please can you email me (as per above) so I can continue the war on errors with them.

    Yes, I just received my confirmatory email - and a careful read of the instructions I didn't have to follow (see previous email) leads me to believe that the instructions were intended for a situation other than mine.

    Thanks again, Marc for the followups on this - and look! I have a day off tomorrow. Let the weekend commence!

    This is the 'non-problem' I had as well. They sent a code, but I did not seem to need it.

    When I carefully read the confirmatory mail:

    If you made the purchase using the Buy Now link inside the game, the full version should be already unlocked. If it isn t, please follow the these steps:
    my dead of this is that you only need the code if you are unlocking the demo.

    I *think* that this means that you do NOT need the code, if you just bought it normally.

    Perhaps someone can confirm this - but I had the same 'non-problem', and mine seems to be working fine.

    After agonizing on this board for the release of WWSM the last two days I could sense the joy for you PC guys. As a Mac guy this extra day of struggle has been tough but it is nice to get such feedback. Having said that...

    Slow upload process... Come on I need to put the smack on some oppenents. I need my fix when can I download? Please come soon my work productivity is taking a hit and I am off in a couple of hours and would love to have WWSM waiting for me.

    I'm confused, there's no way (to me) from the running demo to activate/buy anything.

    I've downloaded just 5Mb of a software downloader which supposedly enables you to buy and download the rest.

    Or do you need to download previously from them some demo (I downloaded mine from SI links) ?

    Do you need the demo running for Boonty to work ?

    Good question about Leopard as my wife is dying to get it.

    As for me I think i'll as usual start unemployed and work my way up. Although being an American creating a powehous club would be fun. Just that the MLS has those stupid rules, team salary caps and all. Wish we could play lower divisions in the USA. Anyway gotta get my game on already.

    I got a bad feeling this long silence means they have gone to sleep for the night. I hope I am wrong especially when all I thought was left was the upload but hat was over three hours ago.

    We Mac users need some love

    I'm pessimistic too now; whatever happened to the forums was weird.

    it wouldn't surprise me if they posted the link from home later, however. it's 9 pm over there, but who knows - I am keeping the faith.

    You were locked out of the forums for a while to then. I was hoping since they were using a different company for the mac DD that it was going to be available from the site and that is why they had to go offline in order to put it up.

    No such luck. Maybe I should start with the Demo, but man I could of swore it would be ready today.

    Took my personal laptop to the office today, hoping that I'd be able to download in the background and then get a couple hours in between close of business and my 7pm continuing studies.

    Weird no word at all. Forum has been on and off. What gives? Are us Mac people to few? SI to busy? At least if it's not going to be available today let us know. Even though I really wish it were.

    I'm still here my Mac friends. I come with good and bad news.

    The good news is Futbol Manager is uploaded and can be downloaded for the Mac here ... http://download.sega.com/u/nasa/futbol_manager_2008.zip

    The bad news is WWSM got stuck so it's still going now but it'll be there soon. Do not worry I wont fail you!!!

    Perhaps if you tried turning it sideways before uploading?

    Should I not be obsessively updating my screen every minute. I know I know. The last version I bought was 2005 and I have been looking forward to this for a long time. Yesterday someone asked if they should sleep and check tomorrow and your response was get 40 winks and it was available the next day. So should I continue to obsess or get those blasted 40 winks?

    this wait will make it all the sweeter - I've finished all of the work I had to do, so tonight will be all FM (or is it WWSM now?).
