Release date 14th Novemeber

No news on demo but likely 2-3 weeks before release date

Due to the FM Live beta testing over the last 12 months there has been far far more testing hours by thousands of people on the FM09 match engine.

Enjoy :)

Not interested in FM Live, I think it will bomb because I dont think people will pay £100 to play for a year.

I will play 09 though, good to see them filming at the home of English football too. :D

You don't have to use the 3D engine. It is an option.

You can instead use the normal 2D engine instead if your PC wo't cope with 3D.

The 3D engine is a waste of time and goes against everything that Championship Manager and Football Manager have always been about. The text-based engine always left more to the imagination than the "visual" engines, which was one of the main appeals of CM.

Now it's just like any other football management sim...

What sort of spec would be needed to play the 3D? Because if its rediculously high and most can't use it then it seems silly. Does look good though IMO.

I agree with SteveGrant about the 3D engine. Even if it is optional, I still don't like it. I always thought the charm of FM was the 2D game engine, because you don't get that on any other football managing sim like you do on FM. I just feel that the game has lost a bit of its originality now. Nevertheless, I shall be buying it in November, so i'll quit b*tching about it.

I don't know. But I would guess there would be lots of graphical options to make it work on near enough every PC to some extent. If you don't like it or it doesn't work then just use the 2D engine or commentry only as you've done in the past.

I hope its going to be more realistic, the likes of reading and Derby are simply way too good. Will Doyle really be bought for £21,000,000 by Milan? i think not. will David Jones go back to Man U for £14,500,000? i think not. Southampton researcher generally did a good job, but i still edit a lot of stats becaus some of them are absolute rubbish.

One more thing, Thomson is a -9, why are his stats so ****?

What exactly was wrong? Remember Saints were rubbish last season and I have to stick to guidlines based on the teams position.

Because he is still along way from the finished article. The -9 is his potential if you train him well and give him 1st team experience or loan him out he will become a very good player on the game.

Having looked at his stats on genie scout and editor, i can say his stats are truely awful for a -9.

it was mainly physical stats, Dyer should have 20 for pace, agility, and balance should be higher. there are several more of these issues with others.

Matthew Le God
06-09-2008, 09:00 PM
Dyer has 19 for pace and acceleration which make him one of the fastest players in the game!

As for Thomson, -9 is his potential not his current ability, he is still young and learning. His CA has been increased abit for FM09.

You have to remember I have to work to guidlines. So for a team that finished in the bottom 1/4 of the league in 2007/2008 has 3 or 4 star players in one pre defined bracket of ability range. The majority of the squad in another pre defined bracket. Finally the rest in the pre defined bracket below this including youth players. Thomson has only recently come out of the youth teams.

I am fully aware of Thomsons potential and his potential rating I have given him make him one of the best young English players in the game. :)

I like the look of the new press conferences (should have happened ages ago, IMO), but see no point to the 3D engine. It doesn't add anything. I like the 2D one, but you don't need anymore than that.

Payment comes in the way of a free copy of the game. Not alot in terms of financial value compared to the hours you put in but there are a few other perks to the role ;)

I will give the 3d engine a go, if its rubbish I'll just change to 2d.

-9 PA is actually pretty good :) 160-190 I think?

Ash
08-09-2008, 11:12 PM
The winky thing makes it look like you are getting sexual favours in return for doing the research, is this the case?
It was nothing to do with your stats but I found the last FM useless, I haven't played it since last Christmas and, as a lazy layabout student with nothing to do, that is shocking. I hope the next one is better but I certainly won't be pre-ordering again until I have heard the state of the game on release.

For potential all players are given either

1) a fixed scored out of 200

2) For younger players a score from -1 to -10 as their potential is harder to give

-10 = 170-200
-9 - 150-180
-8 - 130-160
-7 - 110-140
-6 - 90-120
-5 - 70-100
-4 - 50-80
-3 - 30-60
-2 - 10-40
-1 - 0-20

You forgot Stern John :)

In terms of current ability he is the best

Matt SFC
21-10-2008, 04:20 PM
Have Surman’s attributes gone down since last year?
Will all our current loans be included in the game?
Will the game begin with us being above our wage budget? And what will the situation be with the players we’ve loaned out such as Rasiak and Saganowski?
Will we have more money than last year considering we put in a bid for Anthony Gerrard on deadline day and have agreed a price for Gasmi if we choose to purchase him.

These are all my questions…for now

Matthew Le God
21-10-2008, 04:39 PM
Will all our current loans be included in the game? only loans made within the transfer window are ever included in fm, so no Robertson but Saints will have Gasmi, Cork, Pekhart
Will the game begin with us being above our wage budget?the club will have no wage budget left
And what will the situation be with the players we’ve loaned out such as Rasiak and Saganowski?they will be on loan in FM to Watford and Aab
Will we have more money than last year considering we put in a bid for Anthony Gerrard on deadline day and have agreed a price for Gasmi if we choose to purchase him. no transfer budget, but more in the cash balance



Hope that helps :)

I've pre ordered from Play as they have quite an interesting pre order bonus at the moment of getting your name on the cover.

Kills the resell value of the game but considering I've still got all my games back to World Grand Prix on Master System kicking around somewhere that's not really an issue for me ^^

Don't think so, though it does give the release date of the 14th. The SI guy on this site(Matthew Le God) said it would come out about 2 weeks before though.
