  1. FM 2008 - What Do You Think?

    So what do you think about the new FM? Fave features? Worst features? Not got it yet, why?

  2. ok since i have had it since Tuesday and except Sean have played it more than most on here nah sorry the best new feature has to be wage structure,real time subs,confidence on signings etc and the skin

    as of yet no baddies

  3. What's the new scouting system like? I thought the last one was really good, but I heard they were improving it so I hope they havn't messed it up.

    Some of us like to spend most of our money socialising and on holiday money therefore can't afford this yet. I will get it in the next few weeks.

    the scouting is more or less the same as the old one just the scout actually tells u recommendations in the news and there is a start rating system aswell on ability and potential

    Will do definitely mate, although its gonna be next week now as I have to go to Oman sunday night now. My companies been fucking me about proper lately :mad:

  13. Oh yeah Ive found an annoying little thing about FM08. In the club finances/transfers screen, if you click adjust budgets there when you're done your transfer sell on clauses duplicate themselves, making it really hard to see which ones are duplicated.

  14. I'm enjoying it so far, however my poor tactical ability is causing a leaky defence. Currently 5th with Everton after 12 games, not a single clean sheet in the prem . I will continue to tweak till I figure out the problem, if not I'll blame Hibbert.

    Oh, hate the skin too.

  15. I dont mind the skin, actually think its better than 07. My problem is scoring goals, get bucketloads of chances but dont score them.

  16. Defence seems to be my problem so far. I like how they finally fixed the scroll down arrow on player stats when playing on windowed. However you cant watch champs league draw now

  17. The 'Make Available For Reserves' option is quality. Dont keep having to move players from squad to squad now.

  18. oooo that sounds good, think im gona order it now, bollocks to uni

  19. I like it when you put one fo your Reserves into the first team and you can say if you just want them to be in it for a week etc..

  20. Im struggling at the back at the moment now. Im winning and drawing but cant seem to keep a clean sheet. Dont think Ive kept one in 13 games now.

  21. I started well with Liverpool but have tailed off now after bwt 9 games.

    I like the match engine, player movements and stuff seems to be more realistic. and the confidnece changes are excellent. I like how you can see fans morale, and opinions on players not playing well etc.

  22. i like how at the end of your season you get your best 11 of the season

  23. I'm getting frustrated playing this as closing down isn't working like it should be and I'm losing games because of it.

  24. I am finding it hard to get a tactic that works much harder than 07. I stayed up on last day of the season me sunderland and boro two of the 3 went down boro won at liverpool 2-1, sunderland won at everton 2-0 and i scored in last minute at chelsea to win 1-0 and stayed up. I love the training seems to work much faster and i like it how your coaches have training reports etc cameron jerome has improved as a footballer over the last 6 months his first touch has been most noticeable. I like the captain vice captain thing too. I just thing its very hard so far and 4-4-2 i just cant get it to work i won most games playin 4-5-1 but i dont like it i prefer 4-4-2 but that just dont seem to work:mad:

  25. well my old fm 07 tactic still works *evil laugh*

  26. Havnt had the chance to go out and get it yet. Should get it this week

  27. Integrating Demo

    I just bought the game this morning and will be playing it when I get home. I am around 4 months into the season of the demo version and wondered if there was anyway to continue playing this game on the full version?

    ie can I save my demo game onto the full version rather than having to start again?!? I am doing quite well - 1 goal conceded in 10 league games!!!

    PLEASE...

  28. yea you can i think it comes up on the saved games list automatically if not then go to my documents>SIGames>fm08demo>saved games cut it and paste it to the fm08 folder

  29. you can but ive just read on the sigames forums that if you do there will be loads of bugs in your game, its the same if you buy an ilegal copy of the game. sigmaes are getting clever! lol

    I don't see how a pirate copy of the game would have any more bugs than the original it is burned from. Unless said original was a beta version, but other than that, meh.

    i dunno thats what is said on the sigames forum. it was ter the sports interactive skin man that said it i think

  32. I'm happy to report that the saved game from the demo WAS indeed transferrable to the full version of the game and I have taken up where I left off. I have not noticed any bugs as yet after doing this and all seems to be working fine. All it took was moving one file (in the saved games folder named 'games' in My Documents / Sports Interactive).

    I do though have slight bug to report. I was playing a quarter final in the league cup when 7 of my starting 11 and 3 of my 5 subs from the previous game were made unavailable due to them travelling with to be with their international squads.

    This wasn't african or american based squads, but scottish and english squads. SURELY this is a bug! I was knocked out on penalties to a lower league team!! GUTTED!

    Has anyone else suffered from this bizarre scenario?

  33. not even a thank you for telling you how to fix it pfft

  34. ppl have been saying its got harder i think its got easier lol
    jus started a season with chelsea i know they should be the best of the best but againest wigan i was 5-0 up in 30 mins and then won the game 6-1 the next game i was 3-0 againest arsenal in 40 mins. i dont no if its a lucky 2 games but seems to be goin well lol. now iv said this prob will do really rubbish.

    I guess this has been fixed in the final release. Sounds like something too big to miss for full release.

  36. dougalputt, check the euro 2008 when it comes up and see if all the teams that finished bottom of their qualifiers are in the finals, cos thats one of the bugs that people have been getting when they transfer their demo save to the full version.

  37. my fav thing about FM 08 is boozys (Guillaume Beuzelin) hair, i actually lol'd when i seen it

  38. WTF all the worst teams in Europe are in Euro 08, and they didnt win or come 2nd in their qualifying groups

    well according to sigames this means u either have an illegal copy or u continued your demo save file on the full version

  40. I do wub this game, obviously. Though i've decided i don't like the new skin, and the way one or two things have changed in the layout remind me of the first CM after the split :yuck:

    Is it just league 1, or does every game have shitloads of bookings/red cards and disallowed goals. It's simply ridiculous. With Leeds, I played stockport in the cup and I had 2 sent off about 5 yellow carded and 2 goals disallowed and lost 1-0. The yellow cards are as bad every game and there's so many controversal incidents it's astounding...

  45. yeh im gettin a fair few controversial incidents, not so much the cards though

  46. If you apply the beta patch it tones the match bugs down a little but I just gave up playing, will wait for a proper patch.

  47. The tactics require a lot more tweaking during the match I think. Also gotta agree with Wes that the closing down just isnt working. Its pissing me off too as its costing me points.

    Got Wolves promoted to Premier and thrashed Reading at home having 14 shots on target. They had 3 on target and won 3-1. Things like that piss me off although I know it happens. The financial sides seems better.

  48. Finances are better and the tactics now seem fine when you apply the patch. I think like all new games it will take some getting used to and once it's been patched up fully it will be fine like 07

  49. Yea cant wait for the patch. Other than that I think its a mile above 07

  50. Morale levels are stupid, even if your on a winning run they still stay low.
