Is there a way to extract this data into a CSV file?

This would facilitate the use of moneyball as a game strategy.
Oh yeah. Would be cool to play moneyball in cm9798.

It only played till the end of the 2032 season then it packed it up with the Thanks For Playing message.
Like the one we used to see after playing 30 seasons.
Season 11 or the end of Season 11.

This was under test as I put it on Manager Holiday.

Do you think this wizardry could be done on a far smaller scale on cm93 Sir Nick?

Technically it’s 30 years since CM93 as that was season 92/93 with Lineker in Japan, Clough still in charge at Forest.

I wonder how many players are the maximum in the game. Between my older version and this newer version I calculated 2000 more.

Hi all, just getting round to trying out the new update - I downloaded the latest version, unzipped and double clicked the CM9798 icon. It boots up, but then when I click into the screen (to play obviously) my mouse seems to disappear to the bottom and is then not useable? There's no mouse movement whatsoever (I'm on a laptop trackpad). Any ideas?

Slight update on this - I've noted that full screen captures mouse correctly, its just windowed that doesnt. I tried setting autolock to false but that doesnt solve.

There is a 2022 update here: https://www.cm97-98.eu/

Also, there is a good data editor called working station https://www.champman0102.net/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4003


I still have some questions:

- How can we open .S16 files ( manager history files etc)?
- How to fix the error where manager history gets deleted (or limited to a few entries) after playing the game for +5 years?

Someone on facebook looks like he is selling this, but obviously, I don't know for sure.

I'm not sure if the copyright stills holds (not expired or abandoned), but it is not legal to sell software copyrighted for another company.

Also - how cool are you when you steal other people's work, pass it on as your own, trying to mass sell it.

In addition to that, who'd be daft enough to part with their money for it?

It is very similar. You can follow the instructions here https://cm9798.co.uk/how-to-install-cm9798/

Basically you need to download the DOSBox for Mac. The rest is the same as using a MS-Dos command line. Depending on the cm9798 version, you might need to update the DOSBox preference file.

The one thing I don't like about the original game is the sudden sacking thing if you start doing badly.

Is there any way to fix this?

Choosing the club with lower expectations, like freshly promoted ones. Not some top giants who don't accept giving away any titles- you may lead the league with some of them, but early cup exits might be too much for them.
CM97/98 had no chairmen, in CM3 would be additional option to edit chairmen or just choosing club with more patient chairman.

Actually I start in the lowest league, but I have edited the team I manage with a "B" team which plays in the same league.
Also, a stadium capacity of 50000.

Also, another thing that ruins it is the "20 million " for the next season thing.I think if this wasn't there.there would be different outcomes.
I.E some teams having to budget and sell players instead of buying more.

Thanks for your reply anyway. :)

Hi,

I'm not aware of the "20 million" rule.

Did you edit the club blend and popularity in the editor? Maybe that changed the expectations? Also I never seen a team with its B team in the same league. Can you share a screenshot?

Another question rose for me: which CM version exactly are you playing, which allows to have B team in same division? In 97/98 and later ones there had to be connection between first and B team in database(value 1 at "B team" and same short name with added B like "FC Castilla Madrid" as long and "Real Madrid B" as short), without that there is no connection and they act like 2 different clubs. So it must be some earlier version like 95/96 or 96/97 where I don't remember whether B teams were similarly. In Spanish league they had to be somehow, but maybe not connected. In 97/98 they surely can't be in same division, B team's position in league remained vacant and with one team less.
As stadium size and money are connected to team's reputation/blend/popularity, game will probably generate automatically different ones than in database, so club will be with top class ambitions(with far biggest budget and stadium in league and you are not leading???) and with bottom level players it would be very difficult to manage. There is probably very few teams starting with money 20+M in game at all, so as lower league team you must reach at least to cup final :D
Some interesting things I must explore, when I have enough free time...

Championship Manager 97/98…I managed to find out how to do it and also edit teams and make the divisions 24 teams.

Change EDN (in the editor for the B Team) I think it was to ED3.Otherwise, the B Team is a non league team.Well that's the league I started off in (ED3).I suppose you could put the B team in any league so long as you don't go past the 24 teams in a division.

The computer controls the B Team, but you can bung your dud players in there.

Sometimes the B Team bungs out some players on a free transfer, so you have to keep an eye on that.

Also, it's not a£20 Million rule I just notice the bigger teams get given a £20 million boost at the start of the season.

I can post a screenshot, but I'm not sure what it would prove.

Will post some screens on soon to show how it's done.
