hey everyone, has anybody managed to purchase wwsm08 from Europe yet?

I prefer digital versions to boxed ones and would like to get this game.

Also are there separate patches for fm08 and wwsm08?

appreciate any replies

thanks

bodonodon, I believe you aren't allowed to download if you live in Europe, though I may be mistaken.

On the topic of digital downloads, is the Mac version ever going to be up? Or was that a limited time only offer?

I downloaded the Mac version in November - and paid for it too. I need reinstall it though to check out the new patch. I hope it's still available (it really should be). SI?

I guess it's too late now. They've finished working on the game, they've finished providing support and answers to the questions. They're probably to busy with FM Live to even acknowledge the world around them.

Why, I don't know. Maybe it's because they've had all the award ceremonies for games. Maybe they've already sold enough to make the game a success. It's like U2, as long as they sell 5 million albums, who cares if the songs are so-so?

I'm not really this cynical, but this is the first time I've experienced this kind of blatant disregard from SI.

Love the games, hating this.

For the Mac version of WWSM, the link on the Sega site doesn't work:

Is there anywhere to download the try and buy? I don't want to get the CD version - seems like a waste.

I have downloaded the Mac version of WSM 08. However, I am unable to purchase the product as when the e-sellerate purchase screen appears, there is no option to buy WSM 08. This problem has been brought up in a separate forum:

http://community.sigames.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5211026...102057093#6102057093

as well. Is there something that I am doing wrong or something I need to do differently in order to complete the purchasing process? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

I have contacted e-sellarate about this issue hoping that they could point out what I had done wrong. I received the following response:

"

Hello again Jere:

After reviewing this product again, it appear that the publisher of this

product currently has this product marked such that it is not for sale.

I'm not sure if this intentional. I have CC'ed the developer of the

product on this email, as well. Perhaps he will be able to assist us

with this issue.

Sports Interactive: If you need any assistance with your product's

configuration in your publisher account, please don't hesitate to let us

know.

"

Will WSM 08 be made available for purchase through digital download again?

thanks

In order to play with a friend who has WSM 2007, I've tried to download and buy WSM 2007. The try and buy demo is evidently crippleware, and even after buying the game via the built-in app, there are features missing such as the pre-game editor.

What do I need to do in order to get the full version of 2007 going, or get my money back?

I did figure out how to fix my problem:

A) Reinstall using your Order ID.

B) Install the patch.

Since I'm not allowed to edit my own posts (and whose brilliant idea was that? icon_rolleyes.gif ), I need to clarify that you can do one or the other, it doesn't require both to fix the issue I was asking about.

Hi Marc,

I have just purchased WSM 2008 but am not sure if it's been patched to the latest level (8.0.2 ?)

If it hasn't - where can I get the latest patch for WSM 2008 ? The update functionality within the game brings me to an error page on the SI site saying that the download was not found in your download archives.

Thanks,

Travis

Is WWSM 08 compatable with Windows Vista? I just got a new lap top and want to download it so I can play when I am on vacation, or will I have to wait for 09 to be compatable with Vista?

I already have the CD (or is it DVD? - whichever!) version of FM2008. I'd now like to get the digital download version for my notebook (no CD or DVD drive). Is there any way I could get it for free?

Can you not just install the CD version on your notebook?

Installing it is not the problem. Because my sub-notebook has no CD drive, there's no way to play the games
