FM15: Tycoon Saves

Recommended Posts

In the same game as I mentioned above in 2018 Udinese got a tycoon and 2019 Spurs did. They have just signed Balanta for £57 and negotiated them to £60 for Aarons.

Trying to generate as many of these as possible - I have gone through every professional division in England and Holland and edited the board confidence of each chairman to 1 and 1. Meaning they all are looking to leave, this makes for some very interesting board movement and investment, not solely tycoons. Rosell and Laporta to lower league teams but also some really interesting tycoon attempts - I have been unemployed and watching for movement and took over Wallsall, with a tycoon. I can upload the DB if anyone wants it.

Will do, once I get in tonight. If anyone feels like adding to it and doing the same to other leagues then feel free. surprised no one has had the idea before.

This is not the Walsall link; this is the database link hence it is not a saved game file.

You just have to subscribe to all the board takeovers by ensuring this option is ticked when setting your news subscriptions...

How do you find out which clubs are owned by tycoons? I may have had some in my save but don't know.

I think the only option you can do is go through clubs history :( Wish I could have better answer.

Here's what I do (I'm nobody special, just a guy with a lot of time on his hands):

1. Go into preferences and have the game create a unique save file every month. This is the most important part and gives you the best chance to find tycoons on takeover date. It isn't foolproof, as you'll see below; but it does work fairly well.

2. Holiday a new save out to July of 2017. This date can be any that you choose, it's completely up to you. Personally, I don't like getting into a save that goes much further into the future, I find it hard to jump in and get into a game if it's much further out. This usually takes around 2 to 3 hours, depending upon how many leagues I loaded each time.

3. If you don't have it, download the real time editor that is not sold by SI; I believe there is a free version. I don't know if will get in trouble for naming it, but it's the one that is an acronym(fmrte). It allows you to search clubs based on a host of different parameters. Fix the drop down owner type to "Foregrond" and search. It will bring up a list of all of the Foreground sugar daddy clubs in the game. There are some that start out with a sugar daddy; after a few times of looking at this list you'll be able to quickly spot new entries.

4. Go into your game and find any clubs that have new foreground tycoon owners, and go to the History-Landmarks page to check the date. Make a note of it.

5. Go to load a save, and search back through the long list of monthly saves that you'll now have (if you leave it 'Untitled' they will all say 'Untitled - Date of save') and open the one either right before or right after the takeover. Which one you choose is really up to you, I like to find them on the day they happen, but this can get tedious. Open the save and straight away add a new manager. If you select the club that has the potential tycoon, in the box that lists the how much the owner loves the club it will read "In the process of a board takeover. Cancel the new manager and then end your holiday.

6. From there, you're golden. If the takeover is yet to occur, add that club as a favorite and move forward one day at a time. Sometimes, the takeover will collapse; if so, just reload and step through again.

I've got tons of files saved as "Potential" takeovers, I should go through and move them forward, then upload a "megapack" (lol) for you guys to browse through... If I'm able to get caught up on freelance work soon, I'll do just that. Some of the recent ones I've gotten are West Ham, Ternana, Milan, Doncaster, and I think there's a few more on this latest patch. I inadvertently deleted a few files over the weekend or I'd have much more.

That's just how I do it; like I said, I've got free time during the day to load a new save, holiday ahead, then check for tycoons. If you don't, or are a busy person, this might not be the method for you. Please note, it is rare to get them, lots of times you'll have in effect wasted the last two hours. I've noticed too, that certain clubs are more likely to get them; I have three separate Doncaster tycoon saves right now, and could have had two more had I not said enough is enough and deleted them. It seems like it's all random, but there is definitely something that causes certain clubs to be marked for it.

The way I do it does not alter the game in any way, I'm not changing the owner's status or anything; I just holiday lots and lots of saves.

I just thought about this, if you have all the owners of the clubs stats to make them want to leave then surely when these owners take over another club they will want to leave straight away, would be annoying if you get a new owner who then wants to leave straight away, does this issue come up ?

The issue will not come up as it is linked directly to the board member - kind of like editing the data of a player to make their contract expire. It will no have an effect one them once they move to a new club as the rating is just for their current board and fan confidence.

Veeery exciting Heerenveen save i got from here. The save starts just on the last matchday of the season. And you are 1 point down the redline. You need to win the last game and hope one of the 3 teams above you don't win. One of them plays against you :p

Projected balance of 141M. This will be a helluva weekend!

I may have just come across the one that makes me most excited to play yet.

It's 13 December 2014, and Crawley Town are languishing at the bottom of League 1, seven points from safety. In steps Finnish Tycoon, Toni Lindstrom to save the club and pump in the green.

Club: Crawley Town

Date of Takeover: 13 December 2014

Game Date: 13 December 2014

Club Value: £32 million

Budgets: Zero for the moment with no available scope on the wage budget either. There's a cool £30mil in the bank though so that will no doubt change.

https://mega.co.nz/#!f9VihabB!l91B0MPr0-ntDZ3c41Oc4cvqH7_nZtg-vxt_3t9cFuQ

The Database is Large with 325,000 players.

Leagues are England (Vanarama and above), France (National and above), Germany (Second Division and above), Italy (Serie C and above), Holland (Jupiler League and above), Scotland (Scottish League 2 and above), Spain (LIGA Adelante and above)

Enjoy, I know I will!

Available here:

Heracles (game date (roughly January 2015 - unless I have holidayed the save to end of season - takeover was middle of Jan) https://mega.co.nz/#!ktRDFQ4b!tF-QQDv_qwsIJZgLJNKNDEFMZpCrjYCIMHsB1icmnqY

Southampton have just been taken over by a South Korean tycoon towards the end of 2015/16 in my Everton save. The message came up about him stopping at nothing to turn them into a domestic and continental force. They're also in the FA cup final vs Chelsea at the save point. I've played the season out on my save and then taken over at Southampton to check the budget and they have a provisional budget of £57m and 600k per week excess wages. England is the only playable league but with most major European top flights on view only. Uploading now

Hi guys.

Thanks for all the fantastic saves. Looking forward to cracking on with a few of those.

Quick question though- what sort of computer specs has everyone got to be loading 300k + players??

Whenever I load a new save with anything close to 70k my computers performance is terrible and the estimated game speed star rating on the setup page drops to half a star!

Just curious to know what everyone is running as I'm changing my laptop soon (hopefully).

Thanks

My computer runs circles around this game and I never load more than 60k players. I don't really get what value one would receive from loading every single player in at the start of the game. By season three you'd have close to a million. I always figured it was more a "cuz I can" sort of deal, really; but would love to be enlightened as well.

I have had a great time with this Genoa save! Juventus are a beast so it has not been easy. But Leo Messi signed for us finally at the age of 32. 15 goals in 13 league games so far in 2019.

Personally, what I hate is having a 'smaller' database and thereby limiting myself to seeing the same old transfers and coming to rely on the same old players. I'm showing my age, but I remember the old days of Championship Manager, where because of a lack of database, everyone would go out to buy Tsigalko, Sigporsson and Cherno Samba. So now that I have a laptop that's capable of running it, I tend to load up a larger database.

Used a different site that I am used to seeing on here to store my games so hopefully it will work fine like the others.If they don't then pm me and ill send the save some other way.

The 2 Portuguese saves have only been published for 10 days but if you want them after that I will republish them.The others are for 30 days.
