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.

Its cool man, I wouldnt know any of the players anyway :thup:

The game already has problems dealing with the level of players (not to mention rules) of level 8 football, so level 10 is pushing it too far in my opinion. Plus, all those added leagues and cups are bound to slow the game down over time, for very little added benefit once you (hopefully) climb up the league ladder.

Better to start from level 8 or 6 in England and include more nations. At least for us that don't have a PC nicked out of NASA's labs ;)

Cranked up FM and disaster, my Asia save has corrupted.

Was debating whether to start a new save in Africa, follow DodgeeD route and manage around the continent. Just got back from Tunisia and after seeing a couple of the stadiums in Sousse and on the flights in and out, its tempted me to have a game there. Just a little gutted with Asian save as I was enjoying it.

Shame about the save ToMexico!! Come join me in Africa then! There are plenty of .xml leagues available for many of the nations, big and small. LAways the chance to discover the next Weah, Eto'o or Drogba as well. ;)

@ToMexico! if you want a real challenge, try my Ethiopian Leagues. If you start anywhere but St. George, you start with, well, nothing. Fun, though.

Not to sound a total idiot but do players in your "B" team contribute to your wage bill?

Already started a new save. Think I've already previously downloaded an Ethiopian league, not sure as I have around 2/3s of the african leagues already.

I seriously hope they sort out the margins business. Screenshots and tables are going to look crap on this new forum skin. :mad:

I completely agree with you C. I know it's only been out '5 minutes' and it's always difficult to accept change but it really is bad. I won't list the problems I find with it as it's pretty much covered in the feedback thread in GD but one thing that's annoying me particularly are the margins. Especially for our part of the boards here in CU, as you say C. tables and screen shots are going to look awful! :thdn::mad:

It's actually so bad that I probably won't use the forum as much as I used to unless there are dramatic changes.

It's really frustrating to use - slow, blocky, bulky and too bright. It's actually hard work to navigate, hard work to load up threads and to read posts etc.

I hate the margins and the way that it has ruined all of the tables and screenshots in my threads.

In short, it looks bloody awful! :mad:

I can't say I'm too happy with it either, the fixed width looks pretty awful on my laptop.

My updates seem to have loads of gaps and the table is a bit knackered :(

Not a fan either. :thdn: The only positive I see is that the announcements are detached more from the forum itself but the margins, colour scheme and appearance of code tables and screenshots is not good. :(

It's a bit hard to read but I think we'll all get used to it eventually...like the time we went to vBulletin from whatever forum software we used before...but it's real hard to see the thread starters than before.

Although I really hate the smileys except :thup: and :thdn:

I recommend this for those struggling with the new layout on the forums - http://userstyles.org/styles/33293?r=1278493346

It increases the width of the forum (plus makes a few changes to colours etc.) which will really improve the look of screenshots and tables in our threads.

You need 'GreaseMonkey' to install it.

Thanks for the link crouchaldinho. The width is much better now and screenshots actually fit into the white box. :thup: Now to see what formatting works best for my next season update. ;)

I believe a non fixed width version of the skin is in the pipeline, which should fix the embedded images problem.

Even resizing my images to 800x600 makes them stick off the edge of the page, pretty annoying really.

Seems fine for me on 800x600, does that image overlap for you?

I still have to scroll the screen along a little bit to catch the end of the image, before I never had to do that it all fit nice and snug on the page. Maybe I need to change my resolution or something but I am not really sure.

But massive improvement so I'm happy.

That problem is being looked into, should hopefully be sorted on Monday when the guys are back in the office.

Hopefully they will look at the width of the box on the left as well.

Better off posting thumbnail pics I think. The box on the left is way too big.

I'm thinking of doing a "Rise and Fall of FC Libourne Saint Seurin" documentary style thing for my FC Libourne save game. Despite the fact it would be very story-esque, I'll probably end up posting it here cause I want to use pictures and such that FMS aren't too keen on.

If you have 2 African leagues you might as well also have the African Mega DB. If you load Japan you might as well load MLS (Pan Pacific Championship), S. Korea (a must imo), and China. If you load Germany than you should the other major Euro nations too (England/France/Spain). And you should load the A-League and New Zealand as well. If you want to load MLS then you should add Mexico too...

I can go all day with this :p, but it depends on your computer specs.

I've enjoyed the Czech Republic and Denmark in the past too. Always fun to try and compete in Europe with a team from one of the 'smaller' leagues. :)

Okay mate I think you can safely load 100 leagues without a major slowdown later on in the game. xD

Considering I have a 90 league setup in my latest career game and it's doing alright after 4 years.

I think we could host one now we've had a whole year of the forum with a particular version of FM.

I don't mind being involved but I'm not massively keen on running it myself, is there anyone who fancies running it?

I think it'd be good to have one now too...now it's been a year. I'm pleased with how the forum has developed and how popular it's become since I lobbied for this forum; and inparticularly some of the great reads that've been posted. I'm not sure about running it either as my wife is due to give birth in the next few weeks so I won't have the time. I'd be more than happy though to add suggestions and ideas if needed.

I don't wanna be a Rancher :p. Please don't start the Rancher movement. :(

I can help out with awards. I probably don't want to organize it but I would help out. Since the CSE guys and the Career Forum people are pretty much the same group of forum users why not set a group to deal with each one? Since canvey!! is doing the CSE one maybe one of Daf/Purefun/Neji can organize the Careers Forum awards.
