After how my last save went its time to move on from this game. I just can't keep putting myself through the same things over and over so I've quit and uninstalled the game and won't be coming back.

To all of you keeping the game alive and active well done and keep up the good work.

This game has finally broken me so goodbye old friend.

I started a september 2011 odb database save recently and have a problem. No one is buying any of my players at all, even if they have high average rating/ good players at a big-medium club in BPL and set to 0/free asking price. The only players they do sign sometimes is if they are expiring.

I did also download the latest version of nicks patcher and chose an option that I have never used before in saves: 'Apply known bug fixes'.

Do you think this is what is causing the issue or something other (I noticed in tools, misc patches some patches are already selected by default/greyed out - do i need to 'unapply' any of these)?

I dont have the willpower to start the save all over again to test it without this selected, as I have just grinded through a difficult season and want to continue a longer save.

How do I fix this or has anyone else ever run into this problem?

Not really. We hadn't much clue of reps back then so they are all over the place and for the most part way too high.

You could use Excel to manipulate the data e.g. Current Rep 10 times the Club Rep

You can use the inflation patches. These will increase all revenues and expenses.

A slight word of caution, the inflation patches just increase the cosmetic value, not the amounts e.g. 2.0 will give 20m instead of 10m and 5m instead of 2.5m but the costs don't change - a player on 100k goes to 200k - so everything looks higher but they are the numbers of the original game. Basically the economy of the game doesn't change, just the numbers on show.

Anybody knows what are the differences if a club is pro or semi-pro in the game?
Wage limit
Finance
Transfers pool
Etc

If you switch a club from semi pro to pro you should see the interested players shoot up in your shortlist / player search. Also helps with staff I think but not as noticeable.

Not sure if you can push up your upper wages when semi pro as when pro, whenever I play as a semi pro club everyone I try to sign wants a full time contract so I just provide it and my salary budget adjusts as normal (ie can normally offer a bit more than current highest wage to anyone given key status)

The big difference I notice is in training, lots of red- guess could be because I have terrible coaches at that level but I think even in Sweden with good coaches I found semi pro players all went backwards in attributes

Something strange, which I wonder if anyone has encountered before. Finished 5th in the Prem, but didn't qualify for the UEFA Cup.

Qualifiers were...
Chelsea, finished 9th, but won the UEFA Cup
Newcastle, 7th, but won League Cup
Leeds, 8th, FA Cup SF
Forest, 13th, FA Cup SF

The FA Cup finalists were Arsenal and Liverpool, who both qualified for the CL, so the game seems to have decided to put both losing semi-finalists through to the UEFA Cup.

I didn't bother applying for the Inter-toto, so no Europe this season, which seems a bit of a travesty.

Injury Prone Value

Post by ZeSolyena »

I only started using the hidden attributes column - can someone please confirm if a high 'Injury Prone' value means they are more likely to get injured or less likely to get injured?

Thanks muchly.

Inj Prone
Dirtiness
Temperament

These are the stats you want players to have less of, instead of more.

Aggression is debatable.

Im pretty sure my game is bugged. Pep Guardiola has done sweet fa with man city but hes never been sacked and hes not even showing as insecure on the job boards. Man City finished 9th last season.

Current ability

Post by dbuk1 »

Can someone give an explanation as to how current ability is calculated? as i have a player according to CM Scout intrinsic that has current ability of 1 but is CA attributes are superior to another player that has current ability of 26.

Also how can any player have current ability of 1????

Do the likes of stamina and strength ever get better over the years? Every youth I seem to get through the ranks has pathetic stats for each of them.

In my experience, yes for stamina but not necessarily for strength.

Low stamina players need to be managed carefully and it doesn't seem to improve through reserve team games. I've had a couple of very effective flair midfielders who were complete weaklings :D

Does it go up with more first team action? Fitness training?

Yes, first team action. It can be a slow process though, so only worth it if you think they've got real potential. I've never bothered with fitness training and for young players I'd want them to be working on their skills.

Here's a quick question, more of a "here's an odd thing that's happened to me".

I'm currently playing a save in Japan using the ODB .60

In the first season I won the Emperor's Cup and was looking forward to defending the title.

Next season the competition went ahead at the end of league as usual, but it went through the rounds, then the final, and my team was never included...

I've looked up the old rules and regs for the cup but can't see any weird 'winner doesn't stay on' rule. Anyone else ever had something similar? Anyway I can check to see where/what the problem?

No idea, but I sympthise. In a similar vein, my team Goiás have not gained entry to the Copa Libertadores this year. We were in it last year (2022) for the first time. I thought a top 4 position with a years delay was the qualification but now I haven't a clue. Atlético Mineiro have been no higher than mid-table but were in it last year and won it, and again this year, presumably as defending champions. Bloody livid :twisted:

The qualification for the Copa Sudamericana is also a total mystery.

Has there ever been any testing as to whether your reputation as a manager makes any difference as to whether a player is likely to join a club beneath them? I was considering implementing a self-policy in future saves that I resign and start over at the lowest tier team after winning the Champions League for the first time and thought about this. I realise this would be simple enough to test myself, just wondered if anyone has ever done so before I do.

And to be clear, I'm not expecting Erling Haaland to suddenly be open to joining Dagenham & Redbridge in in the National League, just about whether it gives you any sort of slight edge/reach.

I don't have an exact answer to your question in terms of affecting probability of players being interested but I do know your reputation goes down generally when you leave to a lower club. Let's say you win everything with Man Utd, you look at "reputation in England" and you are top (as you should be!). If you quit and take the, let's say Yeovil Town job, you will soon find that you begin to drift down the "reputation in England" page, or at the very least not maintain your top status.

What would happen in the game if every player had a potential ability of 200?

I know that game has a max ability that it dishes out to each player, but I wonder if your coaches would suddenly be more important along with game time for young players?

I am ready for a new challenge.

What I want to try, is to manage Fiorentina, who starts in the Serie C, but with a debt of 15M iirc, but with a superior team. It should be fairly easy to win promotion to the Serie A in a couple seasons... however, simultaneously I want to manage an English team in the lowest division.
And these two teams I want to manage at the same time as if it were one.
I am doing something similar with Milan and Sparta now, but I want to do another "nothing to all" challenge.

My questions:
What English team from the lowest division would you recommend?
Or even another Italian team?
Would you recommend any other database than .68?
If so, which one and what English team?
