Yes, Matt. What's the best way to dl the demo in anticipation of the [understatement]heavy[/understatement] traffic?

BTW, we won't kill any QA testers in this thread, right? :)

You must only have 1 or 2 testers left by now. The empty jobs up for grabs? ;)

Just went to the steam link that Matt posted and got this:

"This game will unlock in approximately 2 weeks, 2 days and 23 hours".

Looks like it'll be a 8pm release for those in the UK. (3pm for me in the U.S) :)

My steam says 2 weeks 3 days and 0 hours.

It will be midnight and Steam will catch up correctly at the right time.

Yes, you can install it exactly the same as last year. Or you can go "old skool" and use the disc without having to activate at all.

whoops.. I didnt read the post I quoted well enough.. what I wanted to ask is that can I purchase a digital download from one of those stores and still use it with steam? F.ex. can I buy from GamersGate and register the game with steam?

Anyone 'Pre-Purchased' a game from Steam before?

Will it download automatically when it comes out? Pretty handy if it does

Yes. Pre-ordered it last year through Steam. It started to download as soon as the game became avaliable. Just make sure to have your PC on and Steam running;)

Sorry for the double, but with all the testers being killed, are SI/Sega laying the foundations for multiple excuses should there be any big bugs.........

'Well you lot killed all our testers'.

Ahh, nice to be able to save about 30% by buying it digitally compared to a Norwegian store.

Btw, would be smart to add the link to the UK-site of IGN D2D as the current link is only for american customers.

Why not put the release date of the demo and the full game back 1 day for every post which says "When is the demo out?"

PS When IS the demo out?

Will the digital download be available for non-EU countries? For example in Russia digital download via STEAM isn't available.

Im new to this steam thing but its sounds good.

My predicerment is my laptop is away have a new screen fitted (luckily it packed up 2 weeks before the warranty ran out) however the screen is out of stock and they don't know when I will receive it back. I am currently using my daughters computer (which ran FM09 fine) so if I download via steam on to this computer how would I go about putting it on mine when it eventually returns??

Thanks In Advance.

Ok this is not death inflicting question about the demo, but more a general question about Steam ( testers can breathe easy!)

WHEN, the demo comes out will I be able to download it through STEAM in South Korea? I appreciate that I cannot buy it through STEAM as it's not available in SK but is this the same for the demo?

Steam's speeds are always so good compared to other programmes

Oy!

Question: Will the American market be forced to purchase "World Soccer Manager" or whatever the heck it's called, or we be given the option of buying Football Manager.

I'd prefer to download digitally, but not if it's not Football Manager.

Also, will the Mac release be after the PC release? Last year it was a couple weeks after PC release that I was able to get my Mac edition.

There is no WWSM. Its all now FM.

I also have a Mac and you should be supposed to get them at the same time; that's what Miles said at least. I feel you there man.

Thank God for just having FM10, not that WWSM crap! That's good news.

Even better is the fact that the Mac and PC will be released at same time. Fantastic.

Now, if only I could get a FM10 version that ran on my iPhone, that synced up to my game on my Mac. THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC!!

You can install the game on any computer in the world and play the game on it through Steam, but Steam will only allow you to have one instance running at a time...So yes, you can install and run the game on your desktop, and then later, play it again on your laptop.

Nice, hopefully you'll be able to release Mac version at the same time w/ PC.

Yes.but just to add: You cant use the same savegame unless you manually copy the savegame also :)

Question: If we buy through D2D (digitally from a site other than steam) will we be able to link it into steam when installing for the achievements? As you can do with a boxed copy.

If it makes you feel better they want 50 euro(~46pound) for us Europeans.

Anyone have any experience with D2D on release dates? Not paying 20 euro more for the game on Steam.

Exactly that. You D/L the game, install it, and activate it using the same DRM as last year. No disks, no Steam.

I recently bought Risen via D2D and while they strongly recommend their download manager, it's not technically required.

Hi!

I have a question. Why FM10 (as well as FM09) is not available via Steam in Russia? I think Steam could be the easiest way to buy FM for Russian players.

And in a couple of weeks I'll still have this "This item is currently unavailable in your region" while the rest of the world will be playing.

It's unfair :)
