Anybody bought this game yet?

I have an although its really really good it just hasn't gripped me like say 01/02. Can't really explain why either everything points to it being superior. :-\ The realism doesn't seem quite as good - Shola Ameobi scoring 5 goals in the Premiership?! OK i'll hold my breath for that one. And Paolo Wanchope scoring 4 goals in two consequtive games amused me too.

Won Premiership in first season as Newcastle and now 3rd or something a third through the second.

Any opinions?

Yes, bought it :shifty:

Its amazing, ok, the realism leaves a bit to be desired (i.e just signed Saviola for Liverpool :D) but I still love it, and the editor is great.

How's everyone doing then? I picked it up for Christmas and am liking it so far...though Wolves still can't keep a f</>ucking clean sheet :mad: (Camara can't stop scoring though :$ )

Where does the media interaction come in? Cause I haven't seen much so far apart from declaring interest in a player. I did get a pat on the back from the marketing director for signing a Korean player though since it'll boost merch sales in the far east :love:

Guess i'll post about my game in 00/01,only i've updated most of the teams.

Currently Villareal for some reason,4th in La Liga at Christmas,though the only big team i've played so far is Deportivo away,where i led 2-0 before falling 3-2 behind and then getting a last minute equaliser.:D

Its still quite buggy, not quite as bad as CM4 was but it still aint great in that respect.

All in all though its still a fine game, but personally I prefer 01/02, I can't quite put my finger on why, maybe its just the good memories that came from that game.

If you don't have CM4 and can't be bothered to update your old databases manually CM03/04 is still worth a squirt though.

Cactus Sid
01-06-2004, 08:14 AM
No only bad thing I find with the game is occasionally, if you make a subsitution, you end up with the player still on the pitch, but kind of lying on the floor.

Also, just knocked CSKA Sofia out of the Uefa Cup with Torquay :cool:

Yeah i ran away with the division 3 league as hull city. I'm 5th in division 2 now having started off terrible with like no wins in the first 8 games. I'm on the back of a 14 game unbeaten run now though with 6 games of the season left. I'm trailing the leaders walsall by 8 points

What division are you in with Torquay Sid?

Anyway,keep on not saving,which looking back was kinda stupid having drew away at Real Madrid,beaten Deportivo at home and then beaten Valencia away.I guess i was so mad after losing to the side second from bottom.

At least now i can choose between signing Guti and Frank Lampard,but i don't know who:( So if anyone responds by the next time i'm on about which one i should get i'll go with their/the majority's opinion.:D

I'm in Div 2, I've played 1 Full Season, and if I remember correctly its February in my second season. I'm 5th in Div 2 with 4 games in hand, which if I get 10 points from I'll go top, and if I get 6 points I'll go second.

I'd lean towards Lampard, assuming you want him in a 4-4-2

Wengerland
01-07-2004, 10:19 AM
Yeah it's a 4-4-2,both are out of favour and interested in moving to me atm.I sort of have one centre midfielder going back to just infront of the back 4 and the other just normal with my 2 wide players,Zenden and this amazing Italian called Di Michele,to go forward,with the Italian sort of going in behind the attack from out wide.

I'll probably go with Lampard,what with him being the man right now and so i wouldn't be the only Englishmen at the club.

Cactus Sid
01-07-2004, 11:21 AM
Well Lampard just scored an overhead kick against me, so I would choose him.

But we still beat Newcastle 4-2 in the first leg of the League Cup Semi :D

Any particular positions or just in general?

*Checks game*

Tuncay is an uber-forward for Newcastle in the game I'm playing right now. Lucio (at Leverkusen to start) is a farking great centreback too. Should be able to pick them both up for less than 40m

Cactus Sid
01-07-2004, 08:59 PM
Yes, Tuncay is unbelievable. Lucio has a release clause of like 11.5 million or something, and was just voted World Player Of The Year, bloody good prospect.

Anyone got any idea how long it takes to train a player to play in another position.

It took me 2 seasons to get Jermaine Wright to fully become an attacking midfielder and Ian Westlake into a defensive midfielder at Ipswich. I think sometimes the players stats don't fit a certain position so they may never change.

Anyone got any ideas what to do if the board won't expand the stadium because of "local residents" opposed to it which stopped them getting building permission?

Cactus Sid
01-09-2004, 03:36 PM
Wow, that happened? That's actually pretty cool. But if that's the case, your best to wait a few years I would guess.

Also, the stats are for a central defender who has Finishing, Heading and Long Shots @ 19, the guy is practically begging to be a Striker.

Yeah but they upgraded my traning ground (big consolation :rant: ).

I think in a case of getting a defender to become a striker, you also have to be playing him up front as well as training him to the new position. If it's a youth player it should be simple enough but it will probably cause you problems in first team matches with experienced players. I believe players over 30 aren't very adaptable either (so I've heard) so there may be no changing someone that age or older.

righto, i started a new game, with no dodgy dealing on my behalf this time :$

i'm morecambe again, and when I first got the team I nearly wept, cause all of them bar like 3 people suck insane amounts of balls.

on top of that I had a whopping 12k to spend, which wasn't nice.

I managed to whore some players out by offering them to jobber clubs at knockdown prices though, and I bought a few awesome players and some jobbers who didn't job quite as hard as half of my current team.

my goalkeepers are f</>ucking shite and I can't find a single keeper worth his salt to join me, not even on loan. I can't find any good loan players actually :mad: that want to come to bastard morecambe anyway.

SO ANYWAY

i somehow managed to sign Oskarsson and Porhallsson or however you spell it, both from Por, with the stupid P thing.

Then I hooked up this ukrainian AMC from somewhere or other, and he's the fu</>cking man. my only consistant player really.

Oskarsson started off mad well, average rating of 9.88 something like 20 games into the season, scoring 2-5 goals in most games.

he's having a few quiet spells now though :(

porhallsson has been utter shit for me, so i stuck him on left wing instead of striker for a bit, and he's still doing fu</>ck all, the lazy bastard :mad:

I have a defensive midfielder who's good but knocks every shot into like row Z or something.

My keeper is f</>ucking dire, I haven't seen him dive once yet. I have some swedish guy joining early december though when his contract runs out.

I'm like 1.5k over my wage bill, which while it doesn't sound like much, adds up pretty quick when you're bastard morecambe :'( was like 2.9k though before i flogged half my team and gave the rest of them cut-price contracts :cool:

also, all the bastard jobber fans got behind my keeper when i started criticizing him in the hope he'd f</>ucking save the bastard ball once in a while :rant:

Also, I got knocked out of the vans trophy by oldham after a goal in extra time, up until which point it was 3-3. would've been more if i hadn't had a player sent off and my keeper being generally shit, along with half of my defense :mad:

that said, i'm top of the table with a goal difference 3 times that of any other team :$

also, 2nd round of the FA cup :mad: port vale or some other div 2 team. i've already beat port vale in the vans trophy though :cool: 6-0 or something.

had a fair few 5+ goal matches :$

WOOOO

Couple other suggestions for slightly lesser known players...Joaquin is about the best right winger in the game, although Mancini (Roma) cuts him very close - have to wait a couple years for Mancini though because to start you won't get a work permit for him.

Solari at Real Madrid is class if you can pry him away :y:

Yeah, that would be pretty sexual

We need to make sure everyone has the same verson of the game (4.0.1 etc) otherwise it wont work :(

Yeah me and RBF just tried to run a network game with 03/04 and 01/02 and it didn't work :o

So everyone would need to get 03/04 first and then spread around the latest patch (I'm pretty sure they stopped a couple months back so that wouldn't be too much of a problem)

02-27-2004, 06:23 PM
yeah, aparently there was only 3 patches released for 03/04 so it should be quite easy to get it around

Well judging by the people that post in this thread who would be interested I think everyone should be able to play as the team they support;

Mask - Man U
Cactus - Liverpool
Dazz - Chelski
WWEngland - Leicester
RBF - Pompey
MMM - Wolves
Disturbed - ???
deathtrap (if he plays) - Villa

and so on and so forth.

So it could definitely work.

Yeah well at this rate it'd probably be best to start it in the summer - people won't have exams in the way and RBF can get his CD drive fixed, for two things :o

Thing is,i've not bothered with the patches and manually updated and also got a 56k connection on the computer where i can play it.:$

Cactus Sid

Yeah, problem is you have to have the same database as well.

So basically if everyone wants to play, you have to have the same patch (I've got 4.1.4) and the ORIGINAL database data

Cactus Sid

Right, if someone can find the original database data, that would be cushty

Here are the updates, if we all had this it should be alright, in theory

Patch 4.1.4

http://www.thedugout.net/download.php?cmv=10&cat=1#

Update up to 23rd of February

Yeah I think we should stick with that.

Cactus Sid

I'll try and find the original data, but I'll need somewhere to host it, anyone got a clue?

Cactus Sid
02-28-2004, 08:14 AM
Also, I'm taking one for the team.....

I'm going to go and buy the game, rather than have the downloaded version

Cactus Sid
02-28-2004, 03:36 PM
Ok, I know we're supposed to start this in a while, but just thought I'd say, I'd be more than willing to host the game, as I've got Broadband, I've got the original CD now with the original data, but I am gonna install the 4.1.4 patch, so if we are all gonna do this, we need the same stuff.

Cactus Sid

Yeah, you can illegally download it off SuprNova, which I did, but I'm pretty sure is the reason I can't play online games.

So I spent 20 and bought it :mad:

Well done Sid :yes:

Mr. Monday Morning
02-28-2004, 08:03 PM
Ok, lemme see if I've got this straight.

-Everyone gets the 4.1.4 update. Shouldn't be a prob (having said that anyone on 56k you might need to use a download manager to grab it :$ )

-For the database, are we saying run with the default database that comes with the game, or everyone use an update manager and synchronise to an updated one? It'd be cool to do the latter but I guess on the other hand there are benefits to the other as well.

-How many leagues would we be running? (It depends on whoever hosts really and what their machine can manage) - I'd guess just run the English leagues?

Premier League teams at the mo:

Arsenal - vacant
Aston Villa - deathtrap?
Birmingham - vacant
Blackburn - vacant
Bolton - vacant
Charlton - vacant
Chelsea - Dazz
Everton - vacant
Fulham - vacant
Leeds - PR
Leicester - WWEngland
Liverpool - Cactus
Man City - vacant
Man U - Mask
Middlesborough - vacant
Newcastle - packt up / Disturbed ?
Portsmouth - RBF
Southampton - vacant
Tottenham - vacant
Wolves - MMM

Is that about right? :o

Cactus Sid
02-29-2004, 07:15 AM
Yep, 4.1.4, original database, because some updates screw up the whole server data file, plus getting another update would be another 2 hours of someone on 56k's time.

I think we might as well just do the prem, that way its easier on the person's machine + data will load faster for 56k

Dazz
02-29-2004, 03:45 PM
Yeah, sounds good.

There are a few minor difficulties.

We wont all be online at the same time, and I dunno bout CM4, but on the red CM the managers status is set to on holiday when the network game is played without them, and then they piss around with the team and sell players, and buy players. And no way will we be online at the same time alot.

Ok, that was the only real issue.

Cactus Sid
02-29-2004, 03:50 PM
Well then you simply just play when most people are online, they're will be times when one person is on, and another isn't so it'll be fair

Dazz
02-29-2004, 04:01 PM
But, like I said, it will be shit if, for example, everyone but me is online, and you play, and then whilst I'm gone, the manager whilst im on holiday, sells Cudicini and Lampard.
