dafuge , i loaded all players from England : http://i34.tinypic.com/ejxyeh.png , instead of getting the ddtgenerator

Is that ok ?

No, you need to use the ddt file. Loading all the players from England gives you a much bigger database I think.

I'm on board for this; just installed the game, managed to get it to run (bloody directx update) and have added the ddt file thing.

One question - is it ok if I add other leagues at the start, e.g. if I complete it, I may want to manage somewhere random like Indonesia or Ireland etc if I get bored. Is that within the rules?

Nope. It will give you an advantage of having players from other leagues available.

Can some one please tell me how to put the .ddt file on to the game so that it appears in preferences.If any one else installed the game like me from the box.

I have tried putting it in Computer/ACER (C:)/Program Files(x86)/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2010/data/db/1000/edt

It doesnt appear ticked. Running windows 7.Please help as i want to get going with this challenge asap.

Can I just load a game without the .ddt

That would mean the promoted teams would have no players at the start.

Is this within the rules?

sorry for the consistent posting just want to get up and running one way or the other

On another note - has anyone seen Ferriby come up yet?

I have saves for FC United, Kendal and Bradford PA at the moment

Was the game running when you put it in that location? You could try quitting and then re-opening FM

Here we go then kids and true to my word Ian Smithe my holiday manager decided to become a travel agent after a year on the dole checking the numerous football news outlets for job opportunities and getting nowt. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I waltzed in from nowhere after an hour of job hunting to take the AFC Hornchurch job.

The Hornchurch board said that having a true local could help take the club forward.

I be here.

22nd is what is predicted but I know these boys. They are capable of so much more and the fact that fellow former Essex non-league big boys Canvey have been promoted as well means that we have a rivalry straight from the off.

Bring it on...

ok going to try again.

do i open or save the file download

Save the file to the folder.

If this fails you could download a save game from someone else as that should have players retained.

I've been trying for an hour now to get Oxford City into the BSS but it hasn't happened yet. Has anyone got a save where they've been promoted?

Ok, decided to try following this challenge to the letter this year (been doing something similar for many years). Got Billericay on my first load amazingly. Profile

Had my first friendly against AFC Wimbledon, went 3-0 down early on. So changed to a more direct counter-attacking style and we start tearing them apart. Thanks mostly to a new signing, regen Craig Rodger. 16 for pace, 17 for acceleration and 12 for heading should make him pretty useful... 5 for finishing though! We still lost 3-1, but I learned a lot in the process.

Scotland seems to be the place to go to find young, free players.

Getting in on the ground floor this year, day one. Set up my holiday manager this morning, but had to leave for work before holidaying him. Will be back later tonight to post my profile, team etc.

Hoping for either Nantwich or Buxton (preferably Buxton) this year.

Finally, after about half an hour of reloading I got the team I wanted: Tooting & Mitcham

Here's my profile picture

They've got a decent 8000 capacity stadium and finances the right side of zero, so I am confident I can beat the media prediction of 22nd.

tooting and mitcham can get promoted this year?

hello london team! I know who I want now.

Got in too late last night to holiday my game. I will be holidaying once I get in today in 6 hours. I hope some of my Portuguese countrymen will follow me to whichever little backwater I end up at!

Should there not be staff if you use the retain file?

It is patch compatible.

For those having trouble do you load the file before you create the game.

I'm going to have to restart, I used too large a database and it's taking ridiculously long just to view a player's screen. I've been reloading on a new save for about half an hour now, haven't got Billericay yet :thdn:
