  1. Bah! Disregard everything in the previous post. Just started a test game with only the Swedish leagues loaded (all 4 levels) with an Unemployed, Sunday League Manager and my starting reputation is National
  2. I'd imagine that this might have something to do with the game compensating for loaded leagues and unemployed status - i.e. if you started with only the EPL loaded and an unemployed sunday league manager then you would never, ever be considered for a job and thus could be cause to complain. With this in mind, perhaps your combination of leagues has raised your reputation to give you a decent chance of successfully applying for a job? The OP has indicated full leagues from Sweden, Spain and England, but what other leagues are loaded? If you perhaps added the top leagues from a few other countries it might have 'averaged out' your reputation? I didn't check my starting reputation after starting a Sunday League Unemployed game, but I now have Regional reputation 13 games into my first job - obviously not really enough time to "earn" that. I can't find out where to check the league reputation of all the leagues I have loaded, but I can see that the 3rd Division in Germany is 2/5 stars which probably has caused my reputation to be boosted to help me land a job.
  3. Does your mac have an Intel CPU? This can be checked in "About this mac" in the top-left apple menu.
  4. If you change to windowed mode then you can minimise it quite easily just like any other application. I believe we Mac users need the CD because the authentication system that the windows version uses does not have a mac version. However, this is probably a good thing since some people seem to be having issues activating. Perhaps in a future version when the teething problems have been resolved then there will be an activation method for Macs.
  5. Just to confirm, for those that asked, this definitely fixes the Tiger start-up crash. Starting my first new game now
  6. Hi, thanks for this. After only a few minutes the download from your server (400KB/s) has already overtaken the torrent which has dropped to 0.2KB/s for some reason.
  7. Wow, that's quick, I've only got 3K down Would you mind leaving your torrent app running while you play to provide an extra download seed for us that are still downloading?
  8. Downloading the patch now and will report back if it works. However, my connection seems to be a bit pants at the moment so might take a while. Thanks very much to SI anyway for releasing this
  9. I have Tiger (like you) and I am going to watch the rest of the England v Germany game, then make dinner, perhaps watch a DVD or do some work on a project, then I'll probably head to bed, wake up, go to work and when I get home again I'll check back to see if there is any new hope of a tiger-compatible patch. Upgrading to 10.5 looks like it may end up being inevitable (FM is certainly not the only piece of software that demands it as a minimum spec) but I wouldn't do that until the weekend anyway.
  10. Hmmm ... plenty of negativity in this thread May I suggest that people demanding an immediate answer show a little patience. It's about 7:45pm and I'd imagine that most SI employees are at home having their dinner round about now. If there is going to be any official response to the Tiger issue then I'm sure there is going to have to be discussions between the coders etc which will not take place until tomorrow morning at the earliest. As someone who is also unable to play the patched game due to only running 10.4.11, I am somewhat dissapointed, especially as I do not see 10.5 as deserving of it's current price tag. However, I am in full agreement with homerjnick in that SI do not deserve the level of abuse directed at them, despite the possible mistake in the manual. Demanding immediate response every 10 minutes is only going to annoy the people at SI when they read it and certainly not going to help our case.
  11. Also-ran: I had a rather poor transfer rate at first, but after a few minutes it started to speed up a bit - now 180KB/s. I'd leave it downloading for a while and maybe you'll have similar luck
  12. There was a knock on Will's office door and the Manager looked up from his notes to see Alan McLeary, one of his coaches, peering round the doorway. At David's insistence, Will had given McLeary charge of the U18 squad as the man seemed to have an unnatural affinity with the youngsters as well as unparalleled discipline and a keen eye for potential. "What are you doing here on a Sunday morning?", the coach queried. "You should be taking the day off and getting some rest. "I know", replied a tired Will, "but with so many injuries this past week I've been a bit worried. Not sure if I'm pushing the players too hard or it's just been an unfortunate co-incidence." "Well, if you can tear yourself away for a while I think I've got just the thing to cheer you up. The under 18s are off to Bristol shortly and I really think you should come along and watch Lamah in action. He's been on fire so far and I think he could do well if you gave him a few chances in the first team." Will did need cheering up and so he gratefully accepted the offer and followed McLeary to the coach. 18 year old left winger Lamah had been one of the Belgian potentials that his scouts had discovered. He'd picked him up for 16K in the pre-season but had so far been too busy to check up on the U18 teams progress so far this season. Something he made a mental note to resolve in future. The game had not been overly-thrilling but Lamah had deserved his Man of the Match award. Watching from the stands, Will had made several notes on the youngster as well as a few others. "Hasn't been his best game, to be fair", commented McLeary, as the final whistle blew. "He bagged two goals and an assist against Luton last game." Will pondered for a moment. "He's not particularly quick for a winger tho is he?, and doesn't look very efficient crossing the ball. I do admit that there is definitely something special about him tho." McLeary grinned. "There is indeed. And he is making very good progress in training so I'm not concerned that those things will be an issue for long." "Well, I'll certainly consider giving him a run out for the main squad in the future." "Excellent." McLeary got up and turned to leave. "See you back at the coach, I'd better get back and debrief the lads.
  13. Will wasn't happy. It seems that the 12 day break had not done his players any good at all. Not only did a lacklustre performance allow Stoke to claim a deserved 2-0 home win, but the match also resulted in 3 injuries. Cogan, Serioux and Marshall being the latest three to be keeping the physios busy. De Vlieger had not been match fit before the Stoke match and so Will had decided to give Marshall his first game of the season. Now his injury meant he had a total of three keepers injured. Will had made a point of reminding his assistant manager how lucky it was that he still had another three left to choose from. Big squads have their advantages. Normal service was thankfully restored as a fine team performance saw Millwall emerge victorious over a struggling Brentford. Lupoli and Foran grabbing a goal each either side of half-time in the 2-0 win. Despite Brentford only having a few attempts on target, a continually-impressive De Vlieger was awarded Man of the Match. The only downside being another name to add to the injury list; Joe Keenan out of action for a few weeks with a damaged foot.

  15. It was a quiet day in the office; a 12 day gap between matches meant that there was not huge amounts of work to do. The IT guys were installing a patch to the servers and had kicked everyone off their computers. Most of the staff had gone home for the day but a few had stayed and were hanging about in the staff lounge. Will was laying back on the sofa and idling counting the cracks in the ceiling. "Do you think I was wrong to sell Elliot?", he asked after a while, breaking the silence in the room. "Huh?" mumbled his assistant, half-looking up from his paper. "Marvin Elliot, should I have sold him?", Will repeated the question. David put down his paper and thought for a moment. "Well, he is a very fine young player and would have done well for us. However, 900K is a lot to turn down when the bank balance is only hovering a little above zero." The bid from Portsmouth came in not long after he took over the job. Perhaps Alain Perrin was trying to sneak in and take advantage of his inexperience and lack of knowledge of the players. Whatever the case, they wanted the player and Will knew his chairman wanted the money. After a meeting with the player in question he had decided to accept the bid. Elliot was definitely a good player but seemed very enthusiastic about the chance to play in the Premiership and Will couldn't really blame him. "Besides", David continued, "without that money and the 300K you got for Mark Phillips you wouldn't have been able to amass such an over-sized squad" Will looked across and returned David's grin. He knew he shouldn't worry about past choices now. Millwall were 3rd in the league after the first month and things were looking quite positive. Satisfied, he returned his gaze upwards, watching the progress of an adventurous black spider as it made it's way across the white painted ceiling.
