How do you set up that little box thing that everyone seems to have updating their career?

Then copy all the text you have in there to notepad or some such program. Much easier to line up the text than in the reply message itself. When it's lined up you copy it back to the reply window.

In a career can you manage international teams from non active countries?

In my Italian legacy game I have only selected England and Italy as active leagues the rest are view only. I have since applied for the French U19 post but no decision has been made and they are now playing in the U19 tournament with no manager? Is my game flawed by not selecting other leagues as view only :(

Need a bit of advice lads. Have recently started a career game with Sunday League experience but its so hard to advance, spent a few years in Japan and now im at a horrendous team in NZ, so I might start a new one.

1) Start Semi-Pro

2) Sunday League but start as international manager of Ireland U21 or 19.

So whatcha think would be best lads ? I like a good realistic challenge but its so hard :(

I have spent ... sheesh ... five months building out a new FM2010 universe in which I will be managing closely 3 teams, and loosely 2 others. I'll be writing it up as I go, putting most of the info at http://mknn.wordpress.com/

My question is if it would be appropriate to create a thread here, and, say, update it every few weeks of gameplay with the highlights? Most of the content would stay on the blog, but I'd love to have other people monitor/comment as I went as well. Would that fall within the "appropriate use" of the forum?

The second option would interest me the most.

I would go for U19's first then maybe move up if you don't move on.

Do people generally play very far ahead before posting an update or do you do it as you go along?

It depends - with the monthly updates, I sometimes have two or three written up before posting (especially when I have an hour or so's play on the sly at work, where I can't access the internet ;)). When I'm playing at home I just update whenver I'm ready to.

I usually play a season or two ahead just to, as MeLikeFM said, make sure the game has some longevity.

Is anyone else struggling with their FM time due to the World Cup?

Quite the opposite really. I'm watching the World Cup games with FM on my laptop on my knee :D But then again, I have just broke my arm :( so i've got plenty of spare time at the minute :D

I like it :D

BUT, despite impressive results with IrelandU19 my rep is regional so I just cant see myself getting a job unless I manage to win a Euro Championships :(

I am. I played a bit yesterday during the matches just to get my season finished off but usually during a big tournament like this I try to turn my laptop off during the matches.

My World Cup time has been limited too - along with a few mates from work, we've been taking turns to host the final game of each day so there's no chance to have one eye on the game and one on the laptop!

Hope the arm heals soon Raware. :thup:

How can you manage to concentrate on the game and on FM?

I am. I played a bit yesterday during the matches just to get my season finished off but usually during a big tournament like this I try to turn my laptop off during the matches.

Exactly this. Otherwise, I won't appreciate the games. Or I'll lose concentration on FM and go on a big losing streak. Or, worse case scenario, both! :D

Although some of the matches haven't exactly been sensational viewing so far and I have been tempted a few times to fire up FM in the background. :D

Hope the arm heals soon Raware.

Me too. :thup:

New Zealand is easy to get a job in, I started as semi-pro and got a job at the best club. I think you could get a job there if one becomes available.

Some small-ish nations there so it should be possible, but it's naturally made more difficult by you selecting basically just the top divisions in each country, with a few exceptions.

Good luck :thup:

I had hoped my nearly 8 years now as U19 boss would give me some rep boost but alas . . . . .

Did anything become of an awards ceremony on here?

And

I'm probably going to try and put another save up here and people don't mind if I start at my current club do they? Been at Scunthorpe before but it only lasted half a season.

One will probably happen around when FM 11 comes out or the end of the year.

As has been mentioned, after the summer this forum would have had a whole year with FM10, which seems like as good a time as any to have an awards ceremony, if we have one.

I'm sure people won't mind, but perhaps you could just do a quick post explaining what happened in the first six months and why you left.

Well when we have one (I believe this forum should we have grown a lot) I will happily help with any preparations or being judge or whatever.

Why not do a Rovers save? Or a TFC one. :p

Don't forget to load some Asian leagues. Or go with a 90 league setup like me and start a journeyman career. :cool:

I have Japan loaded in my new game but the team names are wrong and I presume the players are too but what would I know.

I did a game but got bored after level 7.

Have it loaded but my NZ I think is different to yours, I downloaded it from editors, no play-offs.

Have a Rovers save, relatively succesful and its in about 2014, TFC may be a future option.

I have started a new game, 23 leagues. Got a great job in Japan to start as none of their clubs have managers.

Well if you follow this link MLF, you can get real Japanese players for at least the J1 clubs and I think some J2 clubs too.

My current career uses this XML file for Japan. To get real names, just search for the fix on the FM wiki page.
