    Default Digital downloads now available (PC & Mac WSM and Fútbol Manager)

    I am pleased to announce that digital versions of Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 and Fútbol Manager 2008 are now available. Details are as follows.

    Worldwide Soccer Manager

    This is the North American version of Football Manager and can only be purchased by people currently based in those territories. When you attempt to purchase Boonty will look up your IP address.

    - PC Download from Boonty

    - PC Download from Direct2Drive

    - PC Mac Download from e-Sellerate (link disabled)

    Fútbol Manager

    This is the South American version of Football Manager and can only be purchased by people currently based in those territories. When you attempt to purchase Boonty will look up your IP address.

    - PC Download from Boonty

    - PC Download from Direct2Drive

    - Mac Download from e-Sellerate (link disabled)

    As you will have read, we are working on a patch for all titles (v8.0.1) which is save game compatible

    We are also going to be releasing a digital version of Football Manager 2008 at some point after 8.0.1 ships so this may suit any of you in other countries who are unable to get the game delivered.

    I've never done this before, is it easy

    Yep! Click the link, enter your details, download the game and activate on your choice of 2 machines. Should your machine break or you get a new one contact Boonty support who can free one up for you.

    Are there manuals?

    As part of the download we include localised PDF manuals for you to enjoy

    I've got a problem

    Depending on the nature depends who can help you best. If you have a problem downloading the file or activating then you should contact Boonty support. If you have a problem with the game or a feature in the game please post on these forums. If all else fails, email me marc_duffy (at) sigames.com

    urrgh, Egg chasing..try this

    You've got to hold and give
    But do it at the right time
    You can be slow or fast
    But you must get to the line
    They'll always hit you and hurt you
    Defend and attack
    Theres only one way to beat them
    Get round the back
    Catch me if you can
    Cos' I'm the England man
    And what you're looking at
    Is the master plan
    We ain't no hooligans
    This ain't a football song
    Three lions on my chest
    I know we can't go wrong
    We're playing for England {In-ger-land}
    We're playing the song

    One question for you, Marc. I've downloaded the game, and it puts it in a 'Boonty' folder, along with an ini file. I don't want to install it right now, as i am at work. Can I take this folder home, and install it there, or will I have to download it again?

    Thank you Marc, besides yesterday's hiccup, once again you have done your company proud.

    One question: does this have more than one license attached (as in, putting the game on my laptop & desktop)? Thanks again.

    (and yes, my firewall is turned off, so the problem is not on my end )

    Hi, thanks for the links, could it be possible to have the size and checksum of those files ?

    It's because I've downloaded a 5,584,104 bytes exe file and it doesn't seem right.

    When do you get this error, at the point you are entering your serial code to activate?

    Do you have a firewall or anything?

    Hey Marc,

    Thanks for the update.

    Quick question: Am I able to install/play the game with multiple users on the same machine? Or does a single user = a single license?

    Cheers,

    It is after clicking on "Buy It Now." It stalls on the first step and then times out and says to make sure firewall is not interfering (and mine is definitely off so that is not the problem)

    that is right (you've downloaded the Boonty application which will guide you through the rest of the process)

    That is just the install program. I assume once it is working you download the game within that.

    If you are all on the same machine it's fine.

    Oh, I see. I thought you could buy it after the big download.

    I wouldn't want to pay, then given a link for download only to discover that the download speed is terrible (common in this part of the world) and be stuck with it.

    I know one problem I had was that on the order page, the box for credit card # and expiration date didn't show up. That was in Firefox, but when I switched to IE7, the box finally showed up, and worked fine. Just a heads up for any Firefox users.

    Marc - should I hold my breath for a Mac release today or just wait for tomorrow?

    if you're not comfortable saying either, that's fine too; just not sure how I should plan my day
    differently, if I even do.

    Please does anyone have any information about whether or not I can change my game to the one I actually wanted?
    I downloaded the South American version, now I'm stuck with spanish (a languange i don't know).. I also wonder how I was able to download it, I'm sitting here in Florida.
    So please, is there any way I could get the English Version instead of this one? I downloaded it about 20 minutes ago and just installed it.

    Afraid so. Boonty only have those payment options. You may want to wait for Direct 2 Drive to go live today - they might offer you alternatives.

    There's no editor in the digital download.

    Any way I can get that separately?

    Marc, or someone else out there who knows the answer.

    I have one question before I hit the 'please addict me' button (again).

    I have always gotten FM before. I am worried that added user content for FM may not work on WWSM. I am confident that this is an unfounded fear - that the differences are more 'cosmetic' than 'working level', but can anyone provide some assurance here.

    And please understand - I am not asking for a rock-solid, golden, 'every file will work every time' guarantee. Just that if I want to download a facepack, or tactic, that this is not something I will be shut out of because I have WWSM instead of FM.

    A prompt answer and I will be once again surrendering to the addiction... 2008 version.

    Thanks, from the impatient, but cautious Canadian,

    Well, tried again, again the same error...

    On the first page that the Downloader opens it gives an error (not a popup, just the icon that there was something wrong, so, i clicked there to see what it was)

    Then, the final error in the final step:

    I will download the downloader again at home and will try again surelly...

    Should all work fine. WWSM is the same game just branded differently for the North American market.

    Now, that was a quick response. Thanks. Will download this evening (as work tends to frown on doing this here - of course, they probably frown on my posting to forums here as well... ).

    As a non-urgent question/comment: I was just reading on the announcement about the patch beta that it would be available for the download significantly after the bought version. With the game being the same - it seems odd that the patch beta would not work for the download version as well. This isn't going to slow me down in any case - it just seems curious.

    Thanks again Marc.

    Hi guys
    Been lurking around the edges of this forum monitoring the Download situation.
    Here's my Issue.
    For some reason, I ended up with the Football Manager Demo, doing ok with Grimsby and I was wondering if I download the WWSM, will I be able to load my Saved Grimbsy game from the demo and see if I can lead them to glory?
    Having never been to Grimbsy and knowing nothing about them, they have grown on me quite a bit, In fact, Belive it or not, I actually check their score next to the Hearts Score on a Saturday Morning out here lol.
    Cheers guys

    I downloaded the game with no issues, got it all installed and when I start it up all I get is a white screen and nothing else? What is going on, did I break something? Help please if you can.

    Downloaded the 'exe' downloader just fine. Ran it, entered my details (name, email, credit card #), and in the 3rd and last step where it's supposed to generate the serial code, it didn't sand said: "Sorry, could not generate, please contact our customer service or try again later..." or something along those lines.

    My UK import just arrived (took exactly 6 days).

    Done with this DD hassle, and cancelling Amazon's September pre-order.

    So, like most of us in the U.S. I've waited anxiously for the DD. Now, with the links provided I'm unable to even get past the initial purchase. It keeps coming up firewall is activated. Only my freaking firewall is turned off. Completely turned off. What else is there for me to try? Any responses would be helpful and appreciated.

    Question to other digital downloaders- are you guys uninstalling the demo to save space (I have a crappy Dell that hates me)? If so, are there any difficulties doing so?

    Thanks.

    My DD was just completed and now I'm installing it, however, whenever it gets to the end of the installation is says an error occurred when trying to copy a file: The source file is corrupted. I tried retrying it as well as aborting it and starting the whole installation over. The only other option is Ignore which I don't think I should use. Any thoughts?

    I'm gonna try again later on tonight and tomorrow.

    Hopefully this problem many of us are experiencing will be soon fixed.

    I'm using "MasterCard" as well by the way. Don't think that's related but still worth mentioning to see if all of us who are experiencing the same problem are using the same card or not...

    Maybe this can help some of you guys.

    When I ran the download program at first, I click on the Buy button at first, and I got an error message after I entered my credit card information.

    I tried the other button instead, the Unlock button I think it was called. I was sent to the same internet page, but my paiment worked this time.

    From what I read, some of you guys had the same problem.

    Anyway, I'm now downloading and I can't wait to play.

    Thanks guys for the hard work you put in that game. It shows that it's made by people who care

    We have fantastic costumer service
