    There are plans indeed. I've actually been playing around with test versions, just to see what settings would be ok for the club.

    I'm in doubt wether to go back to full submission forms as in CM 01/02-version, or to completely abolish them and go with personal details only and all out random stats otherwise (maybe CA/PA could be a seperator). I'm in favour of the latter personally, it would improve gameplay, but I reckon many people will want a more personalised player to represent them.

    Know what: I'm making a poll.

    how random would it actually be? I mean, if I choose to be a forward, is there a chance that my stats are those of a decent defender and a crappy forward, or is the position taken into consideration?

    The position would indeed be taken into consideration. If you are an FC with decent CA, you'll have ok attacking skills and less good defensive.

    Thanks for the info Ruud. Random would be better then, or at least kinda random (like last year)

    I don't think so. It looks good as it is, really. Just need to write the readme, and fix up an installer. :(

    Aren't you only changing in the database? We don't need an installer for that do we? Just replace the new db with the old one? :confused:

    Almost, no overwriting the database this time.

    There's always going to be people asking bout how to do this and that when just handed the contents anyway. Might as well do a proper installer that will guide you through whatever is needed.

    By using the command line option SI built into fm.exe that loads the database from another location.

    Not as hard at first. We start in League Two in stead of the Championship.

    It'll take three years at least to get to the Premiership.

    Better as well, with the non-EU players only allowed to play when they're 18 or older, and the EU players at 16.

    that's nice... I quite liked the challenge last year, and since we're starting at L2, it should be harder to get to the premier... bring it on!
