I am trying to import the FM10 database into FM07. I am sure this will appeal to anyone with low-end computers and those who find FM10 too bugged. I mainly want this to be a rehearsal for FM11Lite, when the world cup etc. will be on the correct season.
I am basically emptying the FM07 database and then copying the data one field at a time from the FM10 editor into the FM07 editor. This sounds like a mammoth task, but I hope to keep the man-hours involved to a minimum by using macros.
So far I have:
emptied the FM07 database of people
started moving clubs into their current divisions
I will be correcting dates (e.g. birth dates) by subtracting 3 years.
Where possible, I will use real competition & award names and fixtures.
I am considering using Gillsman's injury model.
I will correct any data errors I become aware of e.g. Stephen Carr.
I may try to include the nation of Tuvalu which is in the FM10 database, but not 7.0.2.
I am not going to try to change anything that is hard-coded, e.g. UEFA cup structure.
The main difficulty I foresee is creating a macro to copy the personal relationships between players.
If I can keep the computing time down to a few seconds per person/club I could theoretically have the update ready by January.
