Excellent patch SI, wonderful work. icon14.gif

At least you guys actually CARE about customer feedback after you've released a product. Some developers, who I want to mention but i'm not sure I should, don't even bother to release a single patch even when their product is quite clearly bugged to hell and back.

SI is showing them how it should be done. Thanks guys. icon_cool.gif

Yep, this was truly a great patch as far as I'm concerned. Except... they didn't fix board confidence. But oh well..

I think someone above had this problem also, but I couldn't see an answer for it, so I'll ask as well:

When I try to install the patch, it starts to update, and goes past file 5, but while updating file 6, I get the following error:

"Access to C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008 was denied."

I've tried the possible solution given previously (switch off anti-virus), and checked and set all the permissions on the relevant folders, but I still get the error.

I used to have this patch running, but my computer broke down and had to be rebuilt, so everything is re-installed from scratch.

Can anyone help, as I have a game saved from when I had this patch working, and it won't load in the base game install...

I've downloaded BitTorrent and clicked on the patch but nothing seems to be happening. The 'Status' is 'Downloading' but it's not downloading. Is there something I'm supposed to do in BitTorrent that I'm not doing?

well,guys icon_razz.gif,does this patch fix the "array way out of bounds" error???????????? icon_confused.gif

I got that before but it was because i tried to use the fm07 soundpack for fm08. So it could be because of any add on's you have installed like gfx etc?

You have fully downloaded the file?

the data is changed in the way that it always is, and always will be.

Out of interest Miles, why? Surely including Future Transfers on their actual dates might make more sense; yes it might mess with players' attitudes etc., but that seems a lesser price to pay... I was just wondering what your rationale is.

Hi everyone, new to the forums but definitely not new to FM.

I am however a bit of a technophobe but would really like to download v8.0.2.

Thus far i have downloaded bit torrent and started downloading the file. However it is moving at such a ridiculously slow pace that it is going to take 6 days to complete. I am not sure my laptop will handle it!!

Is there a way of making it go more quickly or alternatively am I doing something completely wrong?

Thanks,

C

I have the 8.0.2 patch, but am not sure if I got the version that solved the Defoe/Turkish errors. How do I check this? Version number? Or could I just check Defoe's profile. If so, what should I look for?

Have only just started to try to upload all the patches but it has taken nearly 4 days (real time) so sure something I'm not doing right.

Am using BitTorent but it's taking ages!

Any ideas?

Should have read this forum earlier ....

I was confused that BitTorrent was loading seeds and peers (whatever they do...) but having read the posts I just right clicked on the file that has been downloaded (fm2008_802_boxed etc) and clicked on open. Warning message about uploading files from untrusted source but clicked ok. Make a note where the file is to be saved and then, in explorer double click saved file.

Started the game and lo and behold, my French Ligue 2 players are not now all rated as best players in the team! I wonder how many disallowed goals there'll be now!

Hi all!

Just enquiring about how I can download this patch!?!?

I have Windows Vista home basic with my laptop and my friend told me the reason FM '08 hasn't been working is because I need to download the patch, but I can't find out how to do it, and I was wondering if someone could send the link to download it from?!?!

Also, it doesn't involve payment, does it??

Not being sarcastic or anything icon_smile.gif but is there any particular reason that you didn't search the forum (this thread in particular) or try searching on google in the 2 1/2 hours vetween those posts?

In any case see this thread

for a direct link and instructions to install it icon14.gif.
