    DOWNLOAD HERE

    Full changelist can be found here

  2. good lad Sean. Pitty it's not uploaded yet

  3. 32 mins and counting

  4. Gotta start playing FM08 again. Cant believe Ive neglected it so long for FML.

  5. and it's on its wayy w00t

  6. Enjoy it (Y)

  7. Best Feature is the English Premier League getting 7 subs after the first season.

  8. cool, its so annoying only being allowed 5

  9. Sorted, didnt know that about the subs. Thats my save game out the window then, was only 3 seasons in anyway

  10. cheers sebay

  11. From the makers:

    Issue - Tottenham become very rich, and Portsmouth poor, in the first season.

    Who will it affect - Affects all newly started games with 8.02 data update.

    Fix - using the data editor provided with the game, load the 8.02 database into the editor. Search in the "clubs" section for "Portsmouth". Go to the "finances" tab, then "contract clauses 2". Find "Jermain Defoe" (5th from bottom in the list). Change "per league appearances" to "after league appearances".

    Issue - Problem with the WWSM Mac digital download data editor, and not being able to find users edited data.

    Who will it affect - People who have the Worldwide Soccer Manager digital download 8.02 patch only.

    Fix - Go to Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/db

    Move files in there to Documents/Sports Interactive/Worldwide Soccer Manager 2008/db

    Start game, and the files will be there.


    Both of these issues were missed by the test teams, internatl and external, and were human errors. We apologise for any convenience caused, and will likely re-issue the patches at some point with these changes made, but at least these workarounds are easily fixed by the user.

  12. I am getting an error when trying to install the update.

    It says something about the data editor being used by another person or program when its trying to updae that file. And then the installer stops, anyone else had this issue or is there a known workaround

  13. Do you have FM open while you're trying to update it?

    Thats most likely becasue you are seeding the torrent. When you have removed the torrent(not data and torrent !!!!) then you can run the update
    (just leftclick the torrent in your "torrentprogram)and then choose remove, torrent)

    pelle

  15. HoneyMonster
    or just close the torrent client, run update, once complete re-open the client. SORTED

  16. I can just update straight from original to patch 2 right? Or do I have to get the other patches first?

  17. You can but might be better to go from 801 first.

    Cheerz for the help every1, dont know how to do multiple quotes coz im a loser. Ill try this (Y)

  20. Ive closed the torrent program and removed the seeding torrent, plus fm is closed. Now i have had to reinstall fm and its still not installing, any ideas?

    Cheerz

  21. Just try downloading it the regular way, instead of torrents?

    GL.

  22. Yeah i thought that but now its 8.0.1 that isnt installing, its like there is something interacting with the data editor and fm.exe even though they have both been unistalled.

  23. Done it! It was my spyware remover that was causing the issue, i always disable my virus scan whilst installing but i never thought to do the same with my spyware software.

    Thanks for all ya suggestions

  24. Ah spyware scanner. Well at least we know now so we can let other people know if they're having the same problem

    Probably wrong section here, but I'll help you out.

    In My Documents>SI>FM08 do you have a 'Graphics' folder created?

    If not, make one, and out the skin files in there.

  27. nah still no

  28. Have you set a custom user data folder in your options? If so you need to put the skins there instead.

  31. Harty, if you post a screenshot of your FM08 folder we might be able to see what's wrong.

    I'm sorry but that IS what's wrong. The site has been having a few server problems and I think that maybe the file isn't downloading fully. Just keep trying (it only takes 10 mins or so to download).
