    board_takeovers
    ## Board Takeovers ##

    # You can edit this config file to give yourself the chance of becoming chairman of your favourite club. This should take the following format:

    # CP_FIRST_NAME, CP_COMMON_NAME, CP_SECOND_NAME, CP_DATE_OF_BIRTH, CP_NATIONALITY, CP_FAVOURITE_TEAM, CP_NATION, CP_NUMBER, CP_STRING

    # "BOARD_TAKEOVER" "Joe" "" "Bloggs" "01.01.1980" "England" "Ipswich" "England" "" "Media Corner Ltd"

    # Don't worry about the CP_NUMBER field for now as this is not currently used.
    # If you leave the favourite_team field blank, it will choose you a team in the specified FAVOURITE_NATION i.e. any club in England. If you specify a favourite team, it will not link you to any other teams.

    # Simply copy and paste the line beginning "BOARD_TAKEOVER" "Joe"... below this sentence, remove the # sign from the start and fill in your own details. Then ensure that you have ticked the 'board_takeovers' box in Preferences within FM 2007.

    # You must start a new game for these changes to take effect.




    "BOARD_TAKEOVER" "Matej" "" "Brnic" "20.07.1987" "Croatian" "Dinamo" "Croatia" "" "Media Corner Ltd"





    board_takeover_valid_types
    ## Valid Takeover Types ##

    # This file should be used to indicate which board takeover types, if any, are valid for a specified nation ##
    # The Takeover Types and their toggles are:

    # RICH_INDIVIDUAL ("NO_RICH_INDIVIDUAL_TAKEOVER")
    # CONSORTIUM ("NO_CONSORTIUM_TAKEOVER")
    # PLC ("NO_PLC_TAKEOVER")
    # FANS TRUST ("NO_FANS_TRUST_TAKEOVER")

    # To turn any of these off for a nation, specify the type you wish to turn off and then the nation name

    # e.g. "NO_FANS_TRUST_TAKEOVER" "Mexico"

    # It is assumed that all takeover types are valid unless otherwise specified. 'Promotion From Within' cannot
    # be turned off to ensure at least one takeover type is valid.

    My understanding is that this doesnt make you the actual Chairman, just makes the Chairman who takes over, have your name, DOB etc...

    Scorpion, you might be better asking this at the official forums down at www.sigames.com - it's quite an indepth problem you have so they can probably help better.

    Either that or wait for Ruud to show up, he's good with stuff like this.

    Or listen to what Alex said :p

    Hehe, I do loads of editing, and stuffing around with FM..And honestly, if you could actually 'be' the chairman, don't you think more people would know about it?...Especially at the above file that Scorpion has quoted is installed with the game...

    Ive made other people take over clubs using the command...I got a few millionares to buy clubs in the A-League etc...When it says 'make yourself chairman' it means your name, and DOB etc...Not giving you any control as Chairman

    if the syntax is correct (tbh cant be arsed checking) I think you have to wait until there is actually a board takeover in order to see someone with your name as chairman.

    Bah, gave it a quick looksy :p :(

    You should use "Croatia" instead of "Croatian"

    Yeah but check the example from SI, "England", not "English".

    Alex appears to be right :)

    Alex and Alex are both right. You don't become the actual chairperson, but the in-game chairperson will get your personal details. And you do indeed need to use the correct short name for your country where they ask you to type the nationality.

    Yeah we were...

    And of course you have to use "Croatia", not "Croatian"...Whilst it does say nationality, it means the country of your nationality, which is indicated by the use of England :) This would be how the DB links it with the nation. Just by its short name, which is like the Nations title field...

    Even so, I dont like the idea of making myself chairman...Otherwise there would be two me's in the game. Me as manager, then the me I dont control, as chairman somewhere...

    so i will get nothing from this, only that my name will be change the name of chairman :?

    i was thinking that this will maybe help me in leading my club becouse i sometimes get offers for players and my chairman accepts them even i could get atleast twice as more then the offer was

    btw. do i need to change and the date of birth, becouse fm doesnt reckons 1987, when i start the game it changes it to some random year

    Yeah, you dont actually become the chairman...

    As for changing 1987, that is because FM has a minimum age for you as a manager...
