Euro League v2

This update make the scottish league to a Euro Super League with all the best teams in the scottish league.

Superleague Info:

Based off of the Scottish league, there are 4 divisions:
Premier, Platinum, Gold and Silver, with 12, 10, 10, and 10 teams in each, respectively.

The reputation of all Euro Leagues have been raised along with the coefficients, making the Euro league the preferred destination for the world's stars.

League reputations of England, Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece and more have been slightly lowered, and most of the Scottish teams that replaced the super teams were put into the lower divisions.

All award names have been changed, all (Scottish) competition history cleared to start anew.

All countries in the world have been added as EEC nations, eliminating the need for work permits.

Champions League and UEFA Cup still exist, the top sides in the Premier League/Cup winners get the chance for the big pay-day.

Scottish league's bottom division is "closed" meaning no relegation/promotion of non-league minnows after the season.

Reputations of all Euro squads altered to fit with divisional seedings.

Transfers updated to after the January Transfer Window.

--- NB!! Remember to take backup of your original DB files ----

**How to install***

1. Download the database from the link below

2. It is a RAR file, meaning you need WinRar to extract it.

If you don't have it, download it here: http://www.win-rar.com/download.html

3. Copy your original db folder and place it somewhere where you'll remember it. If you ever want to go back to the original style, just place your old folder in your data folder

4. Extract the folder to your Football Manager 2005/data folder and overwrite where necessary.

5. Start a new game and load the Scottish League, and other leagues if you wish. I HAVE NOT TESTED THE PLAYABILITY OF OTHER LEAGUES, so proceed at your own risk.

FMM1.10 is a real-time memory modifier working exclusively on Football Manager 2005. The basic working theory is to search and locate the UID, which is unique to every single player and staff, therefore the data can be modified through this program with ease and uniform.

Before downloading make sure you already have WinRAR downloaded as it is needed to extract the files, if you havent then go here to download it.

It would damage ur game.
MCM never broke games, MCFM is unlikely to since Shifty Aktinson has some connection with Sports Interactive themselves, i nearly put the editor under "official". However, if you are worried make a backup of your game.

The current MCFM editor doesnt allow you to change that much, but its a good start.

@adj137: Yes please tell us more, especially since no other pre-game editor is available yet.

@Shevchenko[7]: SI have the MCM 03/04 and MCFM editors mentioned on their webspace, in the downloads area to be precise, so they must think something good of it ;) They won't screw up your savegame, but the fun of the game can be affected if you use it for too much of the wrong reasons. :p
 

Tom

That Nice Guy
yeah thats right, its on the SI website because im sure Shifty Aktinson has signed up to do some work for SI.

Though like i say, if you're worried just it will feck up your game just backup it first.

You know the MCFM? Well when I was using MCM, all you had to do was download the file and open up a program and MCM would open. Now I have to install it and to install it I need to install another program which my Dad won't allow me to (I'm not the administrator) So there a way to get round this? If so, please tell me.

You could sneak it passed your dad, by starting up in safe mode... If no password is set in the Administrator account, that is.
I bet you'll be in a lot of trouble if he finds out, though.

I wouldn't know otherwise, but you could try asking at Mind Compression's forums.

I'll try the latter, my Dad would kill me if I somehow installed something without his permission :p
