I'm in too, in case I haven't made it clear earlier lol.

And Mark, I am part serious about helping out if you want, seeing that I'm spending my time at home recovering from surgery and doing naff all.

Now that the 2030 World Cup and season is over, I'm finally 'upgrading' from Windows 7 to 10. FM 07 should still work, but if it doesn't then it's ended perfectly with Newcastle finally overturned.

Not looking forward to Windows 10. Time to strap myself in and hopefully come out the other side...

I had no choice, PC. May God have mercy on my soul.

I did manage to get the FM07 demo working on Windows 10 after I upgraded, but I had to fiddle with some settings in Compatibility Mode. I've also got CM99/00 and CM00/01 running more or less fine.

Unfortunately, not all games from the 2000s will work on all W10 systems. Some games (especially the EA games I tried) simply will not work at all, no matter what you do.

All the best.

I tested it on some laptop and it worked straight away I think on there. It claimed the database was different and reverted to default, but I'm not doing a clean install, just upgrade, so shouldn't be a problem.

I guess there's always virtual PC for old games, but once FM 07 dies I'm gonna build / buy a Windows 95/98 PC speficially just to play a management game from my childhood. It only works with certain 90s hardware, so even virtual PC fails to trick it.

Yeah, I use a Windows 98 VirtualBox for playing some of my childhood games (like World Cup 98). That can't do 3D acceleration, so I have to resort to using my parents' old XP laptop for other games. Unfortunately, that laptop's now 13 years old and slower than a snail in treacle...

As I'm eating breakfast with the twins and watching the Chelsea game (still weird but... a hoot to watch top league sport LIVE at 7h30am!), I wanted to take some time to wish all here, a happy new year!

Happy New Year to everyone here at FMS.

2019 was absolutely dreadful for me personally, having lost two grandparents and - on Monday morning - my 13-year-old cat. On a brighter note, my sister had a little boy two weeks before Christmas, so I'm looking forward to seeing him grow up.

2020 gives me the chance to start again from a clean slate. I turn 30 in April so I'll be making a concerted effort to change my life for the better. I've also started making plans for a new FMS story (or two), which might hopefully see the light of day later this year. :)

hoping 2020 will be a better year for you!

Know what you mean having a new baby growing up to look forward to, I officially became a Funcle (yes that is Fun and Uncle slammed together) on the 2nd of this month!

@salkster2102 sorry mate

Oof, that's tough. 4 points between 11th and 18th. :eek:

But also, Hull and Brighton in Europe. Interesting... :lol:

I'd call this a cheap revenge shot after yesterday's result in Anfield if it hadn't been posted two days earlier. A preemptive cheap revenge post, maybe? :D

I've still got my disk for FAPLFM 2000. I'd love to get into that game again one day, but 1) it won't run on my Windows 98 virtual machine and 2) though it does run on my parents' old Windows XP laptop, the the disk isn't in great shape, and I don't think I can risk it getting damaged. It's a problem, but one probably best discussed elsewhere.

Like here? :D

FAPLFM99 doesn't work in virtual machine either. Doesn't matter what Windows, if you're using newer hardware then it won't work. So I have to build or buy someone's old PC just to play it.

I did try FAPLFM 2000 in my journey trying to discover suitable alternatives but, although it's similar (as is EA's later 'Total Club Manager' games), FAPLFM99 is a completely different vibe with its bizarre slowed down opera menu music and stylish design. Plus it has that treble-winning Man Utd squad... I always released Wes Brown (not even transfer-listed) and bought 37-year-old Maradona (who was black).

Why not buy a new disc from Amazon or Ebay?

I always managed Arsenal or Millwall on that game and can't remember too much about my exploits (except that my biggest signing for Arsenal was... Maksym Romaschenko. Who's he? Exactly).

Buying a new disc is an option, but I... don't have a great disc safety record when it comes to laptop CD drives (I've still got FM discs which have the marks to prove it). I've also considered (and unsuccessfully tried) another method, but that probably can't be discussed on these forums.

How about an external CD drive?

Hello, Newbie here. Currently living in China and pretty much stuck indoors pumping hours into FM because of the virus, discovered this forum and I'm gonna give it a go here.

Hello Sir, and welcome. Stay safe mate.

I lived in Shanghai for a year (thankfully not any more now). Hope you're finding life in China well.
