  1. 2nd attempt is set up and ready to go. Still going with the 2 managers, only differences is San Marino Calcio are starting in Serie D group F with a B team starting in tier 7. This database has been uploaded to the workshop also for anyone who wants it.
  2. Yeah im going to restart at Serie D level. The 3 leagues below are mainly amateur sides and Serie D seems to be semi-pro so a decent starting point.
  3. I have started there but the old laptop is struggling, so many divisions once you get down this low in Italy. Ill persevere for abit but may well be restarting soon abit higher up. Any chance you can pm how to upload it to the workshop and ill get that done.
  4. Start Of Challenge Right I am giving this another attempt. I have tried this seriously twice before on fm19 and fm20. Both times I got the national team into the top 75 but never higher than 67th (i think). As much as I would love to be one of the very few who have completed this mammoth task, I really enjoy the whole aspect of the save and with an added manager this time around in the San Marino league, I have the added aim of improving a whole division. How I am attempting this is with two separate managers Jack Lewis in charge of San Marino Calcio and Joseph Lewis in charg
  5. Yeah lets keep the posting to seasonal and things worth a special mention (first national team win) for example.
  6. New thread has been made and is live fellas. Those still doing the challenge on older versions are welcome to post in there or continue here either way

  8. The San Marino Challenge 2021 The challenge is to turn the worlds historically worst national team into world cup winners and the number 1 ranked side in the world. This used to be easier to set up with San Marino Calcio plying their trade in the Italian lower leagues. The club ceased to exist a couple seasons ago so some editor work is required. Due to this issue the rules of the challenge are very open, and you can place San Marino Calcio in any tier you wish from Serie C and below. I will try and get some links to different starting points/divisions up as soon as possible. If anyone h
  9. Do you know if anyone done a save in Italy with a 'normal' side and can say whether the September thing exists in general? My worry is if football goes back to normal and the season starts in August later in the save, then no signings before then is going to be a major issue.
  10. So I've set up a database with San Marino Calcio in tier 7 (Prima categoria marche D). The september 1st thing applies but not to all players weirdly. I've managed to sign some instantly and some are joining on the 1st which is strange. The first league game isn't until 26th though so shouldn't be a problem unless it remains season on season.
  11. I like the idea of starting at the very bottom so may start at L7. I am definitely going to do the 2 managers with one in charge of a club in San Marino.
  12. Im happy to run this years thread. Will get it up and running tomorrow guys.
  13. End Of Season Review 2021/22 Competitions Vanrama National South - League Table Results 1 Results 2 Results 3 An absolute storming season as we claimed the title with a record points total. This being my second attempt at the challenge I had a rough idea who to sign already. The real challenge begins next season. FA Cup - Results A good cup run can really help kickstart the clubs finances and we done pretty well. We national league side Dulwich Hamlet before really giving Sutton 2 tough games before bowing out on penalties. FA Trophy - Results I wa
  14. When i did the two team save on fm19 i played with San Giovanni and played it with a policy of Sammarinesse players only. This kept it interesting for me anyway.
  15. My bad, i misread it like the first two years had bugs. Good to know.
  16. I was thinking maybe add them into Serie D and holiday a year with the hope they are promoted. Problem is with the third lowest rep + no players what are the chances of them being promoted?
  17. Can confirm san marino calcio are in the database and can be reinstated to the leagues. Only problem for me atm is i feel going straight into Serie C would feel abit cheap. Going to have to wait for a lower league Italian database.
  18. What was the issues first 2 seasons? Love this challenge and looking to give it another go this year with a phoenix club SM Calcio and a team in the domestic league.
  19. Halfway through the 4th season and we have the dreaded corrupt file . Was really enjoying the challenge so will be giving it another go with Cray again when the game is released tomorrow.
  20. Season Review 2023/24 League Table Results 1 Results 2 Results 3 Squad Finances Best 11 Our 2nd season in the National League ended with a decent 11th placed finish, 7 places and 13 points better off than last season. We started the season poorly again but got up to as high as 7th at one point. Another run of bad form led to a tactical shift, and we started playing an attacking 442 which led to results really improving, it even meant we was able to get to a first ever FA Trophy Final. We faced Boreham Wood who we had took 4 points of this season so I thought a w
  21. Cheers. Ive always found it pretty simple on previous versions, admittedly with teams that have better rep than my current side. Yeah I've no chance on acquiring 500k without a FA Cup run, so could be stuck here for a while.
  22. Season Review 2022/23 League Table Squad Competitions Finances Manager Profile Best 11 Transfers I will be honest, I didnt expect this league to be so difficult. I have played many saves in this league but never one as a semi-pro side, and what a difference it makes. We spent the summer struggling to sign players of any real quality, and started the season with 1 win in 13 games. At this point, I thought relegation was nigh on a certain. We managed to bring in a few loanees from the higher divisions, who were not interested earlier on in the season and started to pi
