You would use "United States", like for El Salvador in the second pic.

ok, ok now let me get this straight: if I type: "RETAIN_PLAYERS" "Comunicaciones" and save it as comunicaciones.ddt, then I get Fredy William Thompson plus a bunch of other players playing for Comunicaciones

Yes, it would. The name of the file isn't very important (except the .ddt extension), but it can help you find out what it does.

how do u retain ppl from a nation? does that el salvador think only retain the national team? or all players of that nationality? i wanna retain brazilian players coz great prospects like Dagoberto etc are all left out in med DB

A:
Originally posted by RP van Kasteren
All players of that nationality are retained. So you'd use "Brazil", and find some 70 players that carry the name "Ronaldo"... :p

Q:
Loosely after Glorious Fan's question
How do you get out of holiday mode if you want to?

A:
Loosely after Tom's reply, plus I added a bit
You can set a return date before going into holiday mode. To return early, depress the spacebar when the game is processing matches.

We now have a new solution for network games behind firewalls, thanks to anfield shadows:

To be able to host a network game from a firewalled PC, either software or hardware, you need to open up the following ports:

TCP: 9094
UDP: 9093

Opening ports on your Windows XP firewall:

1. Navigate to My network places
2. Right click your internet connection(for example, LAN- connection 1). Select Properties.
3. Click the 'advanced' tab, select settings.
4. Select the 'services' tab.
5. Click the 'add' button, in the lower left corner.
6. Enter a description of the program(CM), type your ip number, and enter 9094 in both the external and the internal port number boxes, make sure the TCP box is ticked.
7. Repeat 6, but now enter 9093 in the external and internal port number boxes, make sure the UDP box is ticked. Now click the 'ok' button.
8. Make sure both new created services(CM) are ticked in the 'services tab'. Now click ok.

To free the ports on a router firewall, browse to your router's IP address, and free traffic on both ports from there.

Hey guys,

Ive constantly got 3-6 players on my team, which im strugling with selling. I want to sell them as I can buy better players from their value, even 60-70 of their value.

They range from 22-30, so age shouldnt be the issue. I set them transfer listed to about 60-70 of their initial value ....

.... how do I sell them?

.... and how do you sell the players you want to get rid of?

Thanks
