I just came here to post the same thing. Like yankee-ram I have the game running but I'll feel better when the receipt comes, I'm anal about keeping these things. At least I have my transaction ID printed out. I hope they sold thousands of copies and the mailer just hasn't caught up yet icon_smile.gif

I am now downloading the game as well and at about 950kb/s.

25% is done so another 6 minutes or so and the download will be over.

Small problem, I live in the US and I want a freaking copy of FM2008 not WWSM. The next person to tell me that they are are the same thing will get e-stabbed in the face. When will FM be available?

I'm planning on buying a Macbook Pro as well.

I'm pretty sure the game will work just fine in either Boot Camp or Parrallels Desktop.

Whats wrong with WWSM that you just have to get FM instead.

There's no editor in the digital download. icon_frown.gif

Any way I can get that separately?

As far as we are aware there should be. What OS are you on </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Can anyone conrfirm if there is an editor included? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

For what it's worth, the editor is not where it was for WSM 2007 (at least not for me) - Start, All Programs, Sports Interactive, Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 - definitely not there.

But it can be located through C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008 - just double-click on "data editor" - it's the top file which is not a folder for me.

Just as an FYI in case anybody's having trouble finding it.

I just don't want WWSM, I've played FM since ever and don't want to switch to anything that has the word "soccer" in it.

change the language to English and you'll be good to go. ignore the WWSM branding, it's not a big deal.

I wonder where exactly do you deposit your feces? Certainly not in a 'bathroom' or a 'restroom'. You must hold it until you can fly across the Atlantic and use the 'loo'.

You're the ****** for not wanting to play the exact same game which will cost you cheaper and get to you faster as well, just because it has a different 'title'. icon_rolleyes.gif

WWSM fully downloaded, installed and played now.

Tested everything including running the editor and all seems to be fine.

Well done SI. icon14.gif

Well my download certainly didn't work. I followed the instruction and nothing happens. I then checked the Bootygames folders that where setup in my program folder and they are empty.

It also installed a download icon on my desktop that does nothing either. I'm assuming the download manager involves a few files, but I have nothing but 2 empty folders. I sent them a problem report so I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

Mine *seems* to have worked. I clicked the button, sent the $$ info, there was a download (which does NOT work with OPERA! - once I changed to explorer, everything worked fine again).

But then it said it was sending me an email (which I never got). And that I needed to follow a bunch of verification instructions - which I never got an opportunity to do, since the game downloaded, and started working just fine. I saved the instructions just in case.

The game seems to be working fine - I set up a game with all the leagues (a LOT of them) and tried out some of the new features, saved a game, reloaded a game.

The nagging doubt I have is that it seemed too easy - and even easier than they were telling me during the process. I just sat back and let the game load.

Maybe I worry too much. Maybe I need to get my mind off things. Maybe managing a second division Russian team fighting relegation with no budget will help me relax.

Any news on when FM will be available for download?

Since we're doing IP lookups you will never be able to buy FM08 digitally. The only version available to you is WWSM. Sorry

Sorry, been in a meeting since I got here today so worked backwards through my mails.

Turns out that the Boonty servers had some downtime last night which might account for some of the issues faced here.

I had no problems at all, aside from not receiving a confirmation email. But I was smart enough (*cough cough*) to print out the confirmation page when ordering (*hint hint*).

Thanks SI....you've retained my loyalty.

this canadian is happy with his new SOCCER game (*dig dig* at the 'elitist'*)

Seems like Boonty are working through the emails as I've had a couple of people say that since they mailed me they've had confirmation.

Yes, I just received my confirmatory email - and a careful read of the instructions I didn't have to follow (see previous email) leads me to believe that the instructions were intended for a situation other than mine.

Thanks again, Marc for the followups on this - and look! I have a day off tomorrow. Let the weekend commence!
