    Yer looked on Aradi and they said they had heard the rumours but it was clean. Works fine for me anyway, just getting stuck into it.

    So far so good.

    It looks like they have ironed out a lot of bugs.

    Negotiating works, no more morale roller coasters, no more mega injury crisis.

    My 433 is working treats. I just tried out using tight marking with closing down always... works like a charm, the opponents don't even get a sniff at goal.

    I've signed Baines for 6 mil (on the demo you could only get him for 7+) I'm waiting for a work permit for Petrov, he'll be 9mil (about 22 on the demo). I had a bid accepted for Downing at 16 mil (about 22 on the demo) and Ribery at 9 mil (about 17 on the demo). So far so good.

    I missed out on signing Modric, gutted

    I think that update is for FM06.

    However, I just may be being a stupid cunt.

    FFS. Someone help. I followed all these instuctions:

    Download the files.

    Open directory and there will be 38 files.

    right click on one of the files and click open with.

    Choose winrar.

    extract to a folder of your choice in the folder there will be 2 files. a BIN file and a iso file.

    Mount the BIN file to your emulator and install the game.

    when the game has installed go to my computer and find the drive fm2007 has been mounted to.

    click OPEN, there will be a file called razor1911 open that folder, right click the icon and choose COPY

    now click your C: drive and go to programme files. Scroll down to sports interactive and choose football manager 2007.

    right click in the folder and click PASTE when it asks if you want to replace click YES
    There is no Sports Interactive folder in Program Files.



    I click on FM07 which is in the E drive and it says "Preparing installaton, etc." but nothing happens.

    You've either not installed the game, or installed it someplace different.

    Yeah.

    The start loads, but the screen goes black after one of the advertising things and the message "Did not find font resource: vag rounded bt" appears.

    It didn't, but I've just changed it and I get the same message.

    Actually, it doesn't just appear. It just goes black and the little football in the corner stops spinning, I press Ctrl, Alt, Del and then the message comes up.

    Try changing the compatibility mode to Win2000 for the .exe. That usually works sometimes.

    Make sure it's installed to the right path. Check to see if the pictures are int he directory. Make sure the xml file is in there with them. Check your ingame preferences, make sure the graphics options are correct.

    Did you start a new game?

    Yeah, checked that all the pics and stuff were in there, and they are. Now then, what's this xml file you speak of?
    And what graphic options do I need to change?

    Yeah, started a new game.

    Cheers Alf...

    EDIT: Here's the link to the FM07 page...

    The xml is what makes it all work. It tags the pics to an area or player or team etc...

    The zip file has an xml with all the images, make sure that is in the folder too.

    I don't know what options you need to change, I can't see your computer, read the options and use your noggin to see what, if anything, needs changing.

    Tell me what path they are installed too.

    D:Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2007\

    There's also a folder that's in My Documents (My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2007)

    What's this one?

    Ah, sorry mate. I really am being a dumb fuck today.

    D:Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2007\data\graphics\pictures\kits\clubs\eng

    It then created its own folder called 'premier' and in there are all the kits, along with aforementioned config.xml file.

    They just don't show when I start a new game...

    I'm just downloading the Premiership Face Pack file too.

    This is my first Football Manager title you see, so never done this updating/downloading/installing lark.

    So, sorry for being a stupid cunt. Your help is very much appreciated.

    I usually don't give a fuck about illegally downloading games/music etc but I have a strange sense of loyalty to FM and its creators.

    Buy the game you thieving fucks.

    If I had a job, i'd probably buy it.

    But I've not got any money anyway, so it's not like SI are losing the 25 quid.

    Those Amazon wankers didn't send mine out until this evening. I tried to cancel it this morning so I could get it in town but they said it was ready to be dispatched. It probably won't be until Saturday now. I will probably have a half day tomorrow as well. Wankers.

    I can't get the face pack or the logos to work. The shirts thing works a treat. How did you get the facepack working?

    I've got the logos working. I know that isn't much comfort for you Alfred, but I thought I'd let you know.

    I'm not returning the thing just so I can play Champo for a day extra. It's just a bit irritating. Usually they get their games delivered on the day or the day before the release date.

    Extract to \My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2007\

    You can make your own sub folders if you want to keep it tidy (eg graphics\logos\clubs\eng\)

    Untick skin cache on the display preferences, tick always reload skin, then confirm. The logos should now show up, you can go back and tick skin cache and untick always reload skin.

    The one thing that pisses me off with this game is the highlight speed. On the previous versions, I have always had it on the top speed, and it has run fine. On this one, stick it on the top speed, and everyone is running round the pitch like fuck buggery. Stick it down a notch, and it runs like slow motion. Hopefully they will sort it with a patch, because it's pissing me off.

    What I like is that it is sort of less predictable when there will/won't be a goal. In the old game you could almost guarantee that if you had a shot on target in that particular highlight you weren't going to score.

    Once I sort all the facepacks and shit out I should be nicely into this.

    I can't get the fucking workload bar in training to work. Whenever I try and change it, it just resets back to medium. Bug? Or am I just being fick and not doing something really obvious?

    Love the feature where you can ask players to suggest potential signings - Tobias Hysen recommended me some 18 year old centre back from Djurgardens and he looks pretty promising, gonna make a bid for him in January I think.

    You need to make a new schedule to change the workload.

    Is it just me... or has common sense become a fucking commodity?

    I love the feeder club scheme. Set up Hibs as a feeder club and I've send Salif Diao and one of my 18 year old strikers up there on loan.

    Same thing happens when I try that, except this time it resets the workload to 'none'. You MUST be able to alter the workload in the default training. I have a feeling that I've got some option checked saying my assistant manager handles training or something like that but I can't find it anywhere (and yes, I have looked at manager options).

    What's the point in there being a bar there then? It's not even greyed out.

    If you like scoring goals from free-kicks then sign Petrov. Brilliant.

    I've never had a player score so many on Footyman.

    This game really is brilliant. I signed this young Rwandan bloke, and he's homesick so my assistant is telling me to sign another Rwandan.

    I have Bellamy 'tutoring' him, and I complained about a penalty given against me and the FA didn't do anything.

    They scored a penalty... and it seems my team thought 'fuck that'... they just scored 4 goals in 10 minutes. Petrov with 2. Gloooorious.

    5-2 was the end result. Superb. I'm being hailed as a tactical genius by Tottenham fans

    God I love this game.

    I wish I could give Davids a bonus. I've never laughed so much at a sending off.

    I can't remember how you link players... I remember in the demo I could make Tom Huddlestone train with Davids and stuff like that.

    Anyone remember?

    Go to Huddlestone, and choose 'player interaction'. At the bottom you can choose which player to link them with, and then choose the interaction from the list.

    I have you silly twit.

    Anyway, back to the thread.

    Has anyone else got a problem where whenever one of your top players gets injured it's always for 1 month +?

    It's driving me nuts.

    Just picked up the game today. Seems a lot better than 06 so far. I've started as Arsenal and half-way through my first match. Brilliant game so far.

    Bugger. Wrong thread.

    I plan to get FM after playing the demo. I like the team talk option, nice touch.

    The feature that I am really happy about is being able to send your player to the reserves until they're match fit. Saves me the hassle of looking at them all the time.

    Signed a lovely little Argentinian lad for my Wigan team called something something Gomez, recommended by Valencia. Also signed Vyacheslav Hleb, Jason Koumas and the American Eddie Johnson.

    Just got Mido on loan for 6 months aswell.

    I'm having a cracking season so far.

    Man Utd. Top of the league after 10 games, won 9, drawn 1.

    Quality.

    EDIT: Baptista's on his way to me at the end of the season.

    Petrov by far. I got him and he's been immense. Won the 'buy of the year' award. I got him for 9m.

    I won the league with Spurs in my first season, I only bought Leighton Baines and Petrov. It came down to the last game of the season, Chelsea and Arsenal were both equal on points with me then the last game they both drew and I won. I then won the UEFA Cup

    I had a massive injury crisis towards the end of the season with all my main strikers out, I only had Pekhart, who to be fair to him did bloody well.

    I'm just playing the pre-season of my second season now, I've brought in Downing for 10mil and Maduro for 6mil. I'm trying to offload Keane and bring in Klose but its not looking likey. I also want to try and get Micah Richards in but I think they want silly money.

    Does it work though? I had Zokora in there for ages and he didn't get put back into my first team automatically, I still had to transfer him over.

    Petrov rejected me

    I've brought Adu for 3m, Modric for 3m, Baines for 6.5m, Tomas Sivok for 2.3m and some goalie from Belharus(sp) for 1m who Hleb recommened. Also getting Lita and Danny Haynes in the future.

    Only sold Diaby for 2m.

    Has anyone else found that some players are ridiculously over-priced?

    EDIT: Can you recall loans on this game? I'm trying to get Lupoli and Bendtner back.

    I gather it works because I had Ryan Taylor in there whilst he was out with a broken leg and then he just appeared in my first team squad all trained up and at full fitness somewhere down the line.

    For some reason Kelvin Davis (still at Southampton) is valued at 8 million on my game.

    My god lads Eddie Johnson has been at me for about two months now and he is progressing into some player. His physical stats are all 17+ and he's got 5 in 2 for me.

    This Argentine lad I've got is looking good aswell, got injured for the reserves though so got to wait a couple of months till I can play him as my playmaker.

    It depends on the loan deal. You have to specify that you want to be able to recall them.

    Plus if the club has given you any money for them then you can't.

    I imagine seeing as it is Lupoli and Bendtner that they are the real loans they are on in real life, if so you won't be able to recall them.

    The Kelvin Davis thing is the "Value is the same as previous purchase price" bug, but he signed for Southampton for 800k but some stupid fool at SI added an extra 0. Hopefully this will be fixed in the patch.

    Which Eddie Johnson?

    I'm looking for a new striker. Keane just isn't doing it.

    Eddie Johnson the black yank. He is fucking amazing. His stats won't start that great but you'll see the potential.
