    i'm a little bored of the premier league, won 2 out of 3 titles, just signed Daniel Alves for £45M, still got about £30M to spend with Arsenal, and Liverpool got ludicrously relegated last season, but they still have torres, gerrard & babel plus a few others, and a decent amount to spend after the AI sold all the players who wanted to leave...

    take arsenal for easy sucess or liverpool for a reasonable challenge. add your own manager/s if you prefer.

    i simply cba to play it anymore. i would love to see how others do with my teams, champions league exits are annoying.

    i'll upload the save & post screenshots on request.

    here.

    this database includes changed competition names for most european leagues. put this in the databases folder as shown above, and the game in the games folder, as shown in the text document in the downloaded folder.

    locate the "default" background in whichever skin you are using, and replace it with this.

    don't change the name unless you know how to edit .xml files, just plonk it in the folder and click yes to overwrite.

    it should work if they are both in the My Documents folder, tbh. you should see the game in the "load game" screen straight away. restart the game and look again.

    i've played other peoples games before, so it should recognize that my database is present.

    strange, because if it didn't find the db, a message would pop up saying so.

    try starting a game with my db and see if it is there. if it is, start one up (unless it takes ages to do so), then once you're in the new game, load from there.

    you should have a choice when you start a new game. in the drop down menu when you click start new game, you should click on the database bar and it will show all available db files.

    When i downloaded them, they are .rar files.

    do i have to do anything with them, or just put them in the right places.

    If i do have to change them or whatever, please can someone tell me in easy terms. As i know little about that kind of thing.

    Cheers

    take them out of the rar files, then put them in the correct places. make sure you already have the official 8.0.1. update (top of the main forum page).

    download the free version of winrar and click on the rar files. simply drop the contents onto your desktop (don't extract or anything, just drag and drop) the see above for where to put the files.

    Cheers, everything works fine now!

    looks like a great game, i retired the liverpool manager, and carryed on the arsenal manager.

    The next game was Man utd and i beat them 2-1 so things looking good!

    Just wondering, in your saved tactics what does 'arsenal LP home' mean?

    "arsenal LP home" was my setup for the size of the emirates pitch. larger pitch = slow, short passing & counter attack football. worked (too well) so far.
