  1. [FM18] [WIP] E22 - England to Level 22

    Do the teams that had to be added to the FM17 Db for this extension stay the same on FM18 with regards to the ID numbers? I was in the process of adding some missing club logos based upon '17 version logo pack.
  2. File corruption any recommendations

    Unless you have a backup somewhere then I'm afraid you'll have to start again.
  3. I can confirm FM2007 100% had genie scout as I still have it I'm pretty sure I have genie scout for FM2006 too.
  4. 14 out of 20 - not too bad!
  5. Arsene Wenger challenge

    I'd have thought staying in a job at a team like Arsenal for 9 years without a winning a trophy was a challenge
  6. Is it not one or the other? "Failure to comply will result in one of the following sanctions"
  7. FM2007 Problem

    As far as I'm aware FM2007 can't be played on Windows 10. This is due to the way Windows 10 has changed the way that Windows handles DRM issues and so most of the older FM games have proved difficult/impossible to get running on Windows 10. secdrv.sys driver cannot now be run or installed on Windows 10. If you can get on a computer using Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 then this is still possible if you don't have the Windows security update KB3086255 installed. This update disables the secdrv.sys driver which allows older games like FM2007 to run. But by uninstalling this you are making your computer more vulnerable so only do so at your own risk. I only found out myself a couple of days ago when I wanted to play FM2007 for the first time in about 12 months.
  8. [FM2016] E23 - England to Level 23

    Try http://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/logos I recommend the Metallic logo pack
  9. Tottenham playing at Wembley

    I would say Milton Keynes is a more obvious choice right now. Ipswich? Brighton? Stratford (Not a chance IMO)? Tottenham may play a small number of games at Wembley but the likelyhood is that most if not all games will in Milton Keynes. But who knows?!
  10. I'm tempted to say the last 8 games! Though I don't have time or motivation to play my 28 year save on FM07 with Harrogate Town much if at all these days.
  11. Gaming PC

    Recently built my own gaming PC. It's much cheaper than Alienware. And this comes from a person who once bought an Alienware Laptop! If you know what you're doing always build your own.
  12. £500m windfall. What the...?

    Can't believe people still fall it every year
  13. [FM2014] Full Club Names database

    I love this database
  14. I think only going to level 10 is good. Gathering info and logos starts to get a bit difficult once you hit level 11. FCUtdWill, Are the teams you are going to have to create for your db going to have different i.d's to your release for FM13?
  15. I did dabble with this on FM2011. You need to change the 'short name' of the club. This is by default limited to 25 characters. You must have downloaded the editor. The file you need to amend is called club.xml and is found here... C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2014 Editor\data\format\database Find and open 'club.xml' with notepad. Look for this bit of code in club.xml (near the top) <!-- short name --> <record> <flags id="field" value="Csnm" /> <translation id="name" translation_id="292684" type="use" value="Short Name" /> <flags id="type" value="string" /> <boolean id="is_client_field" value="true" /> <boolean id="is_language_field" value="true" /> <integer id="max_length" value="25" /> </record> And change the "max length" from 25 to however many characters you want. Save the file club.xml Run the editor and then you can edit the short name of clubs to more than 25 characters.
