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

It might just mean that the researcher has not assigned any staff. Seems a bit odd though, I'm sure there were real staff at that level last year.

Managed to beat my parent club Norwich 1-0 in a pre-season friendly. 19 year-old Craig Rodger got the goal, his fourth in 3 friendlies. Hopefully we can maintain that form.

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

Dafuge, just to let you know, I added all players based in England, and that seemed to do the job of loading the real players to the challenge teams.

Search your harddrives for team_holland.ddt and put the challenge ddt in the same folder, then restart FM.

Nice to know im not the only one having problems.

I try to add the .ddt before creating the save game. just the holland one appears

Currently installing through steam, yet to see if this helps solve the problem

Holidaying as we speak, just noticed that Nuneaton have a rep of 1700?! Thats a big big gap in reputation for them, Im assuming they are coming up in almost every save game?

That gives you a database with about 4000 extra players compared to the setup described in the rules, that is why we use that file.

Just out of interest, with your setup did the eligible teams have real staff?

Dartford appear a lot but if you reload a few times you might see Tonbridge Angels appear.

Maybe this time my post will show up saying that I am on holiday, and not something unrelated lol.

Forum got some issues I guess due to it's popularity.

Where abouts do you live Gypsum? I've live 5mins from the ground.

Oh really? I actually live out towards Wisbech now. But used to live right in Lynn town centre. Ran the Maids head pub for a bit.

Well, loathe as I was to quit my FM09 Oxford City stage having only got as far as the Championship - the temptation was too much and I got FM10.

Have to say after just poking about for a couple of hours, it looks great. So much neater and more inuitive, hopefully the gameplay matches up.

Anyway, here I am as new manager of the mighty Guiseley.

Cool, I only moved into town a couple of months back. Been to a few games this season and Lynn have been playing well. Its a shame they got sent back down a level for a poor facilities, which is slightly confusing seeings they seem to have the one of best in the league.

To save me from wasting even more time, is it even possible for a club of reputation 1000 to get promoted? In about a hundred times of reloading trying to get Oxford City, only one club has been promoted with a reputation lower than 1100, and that was Horsham.

If not, I guess I'll just have to settle for Carshalton.

Yes. It doesn't happen often, but it happens. I've not seen anyone lower than 1000, though.

I had Oxford City come up a couple of times while I was trying to get smaller teams to come up, but I didn't save it, sadly. Keep trying, it'll happen.

This thread seems to be misbehaving for me. =/

The whole forums are a bit knackered at the moment.

Yeah, I was always impressed by their ground. Seemed like a club on the rise too. Unfortunately I think there's a lot of politics involved.

Well I finally got a 1000 reputation club to be promoted, and it turns out to be the wrong one - Chippenham.

How ironic is it that getting Oxford City into the BSS is ultimately harder than getting them into the CL? :rolleyes:

Will be back in for this years challenge.

Haven't got the game yet, will pick it up tonight or tomorrow, in the mean time, any chance someone could upload a "Holiday man" save just before the teams get promoted? Would rather jump right in than Holiday for a year :)
