just added the Susie Name Comp fix under "utilities". It's the thing you need to have the real competition names and not have the Germany team all weird or something. I like playing in the "Carling Cup" in England, not in the rather generic "League Cup". That file does that. Follow the simple instruction on the download page.

OMG this is the greatest thread ever.

I grabbed a "super pack" which someone included in the FM 2008 impressions thread but I haven't installed it yet. Does anyone have good facepacks for the UK, MLS and France?

I tried doing this, too, but after I patched my game to 8.0.1, I find that I don't have any files in the /db folder within the WWSM directory.

Open the db in the editor, don't make any changes then save it as a new name. Then you'll have a db in the WWSM directory in your my documents folder. Put the name fix into that db and start your game using that db and it all works as it should.

Just noticed that Siple, a popular 07 skin by Rosenberg, has been released for 08.

Edit: And FYI, v1 seems to be a bit buggy (probably should be expected I guess).

Cool, that was the one I settled on for 07. I'm now using Scherm for 08 and like it quite a bit. I tried dd2 or whatever it was called but it was a bit busy for me. I don't know why I like collecting different skins so much.....

sovereignstar 02-18-2008 04:47 PM

Note that I just edited my post and mentioned that this first version is a bit buggy. :)

Not sure if this link belongs in here, but I love it when I'm playing in a league I'm unfamiliar with:

http://www.footiemap.com/

It's great if you're a bit of a geek who likes maps and soccer.

Passacaglia 02-24-2008 10:14 AM

That footiemap site rocks.

What's the point of kits? Are they ever used outside that information page for each team?

Is this thread worthy of being spotlighted at the OS front page? Is it something that people outside of FOFC might want to use as a resource?

st.cronin 06-28-2008 02:39 PM

I would say anybody that plays FM would find this thread useful.

sovereignstar 06-28-2008 03:21 PM

meh

There isn't really much content listed, so I'd say no.

Flasch186 06-28-2008 09:55 PM

i agree that its short on content

On a typical installation or FM or WWSM2008 the kits go in:

My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/graphics/kits

This same area is where you would put modified logos (graphics/logos), skins, etc. as well. It's also where your saved games are stored.

cubboyroy1826 09-08-2008 10:01 AM

Okay that is where i installed the Russian kit for the league i am playing but nothing is showing up. When i extract the kit it automatically names it first division. I tried changing the name to Russia but still nothing. Any ideas?

cubboyroy1826 09-08-2008 02:19 PM

Got it figured out nevermind.

GoldenEagle 09-19-2008 11:54 PM

Does anywhere know where I can get the best logo pack at? It seems I saw one the other day that was 500 MB download and that you had to have a torrent program to get it. But I can't locate it right now.

SirFozzie 11-13-2008 10:00 PM

FM 09 MLS stuff has been posted:

See post below for the new version :)

And welcome Aljarov.. dont be surprised if I pick your brain on the best way to install these :)

Aljarov 11-17-2008 01:58 PM

The files Fozzie postedhave now been updated. There were a couple of config errors that I have fixed as well as adding the remaining missing players.


You can get all/any of my MLS files on filefront - I'll only leave up the latest versions.

http://hosted.filefront.com/Aljarov

If you downloaded the original, just download the 'MLS Late Additions' folder and that will do you right.

I added the awesome dDs skin for FM2009 to the top post. Win!

The instructions are in the super pack thread which someone posted earlier in this thread.

Nice Guy Eddie 11-21-2008 07:35 AM

Yes, I see them here now. Thank you. This is a very big file, I guess I missed it.

Anyone get the real competitions name fix to work in 09? I tried it but it didn't seem to work.

You probably didn't put the inc in the update folder. Check your data/updates folder for a folder called 'update-910'. Edit: full dir -> C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\worldwide soccer manager 2009\data\updates\update-910\db\910\lnc\all

sovereignstar 11-22-2008 11:26 PM

You may already know this, but you can't take advantage of the real names without starting a new game.

Sorry but where can I find the file to download which includes the real names fix?

I did the "check for update" from within the game because I thought SI released a patch but it told me that there were no updates found. I don't know what I can delete safely and what I need to keep. Everyone in that thread on Sort It Out SI says you can delete the entire contents of the "INC" folder but that's located in the "update" folder that I don't have!

I tried to use this file last year but it didn't work for some reason. I hope I can get it to work this year.

sovereignstar 11-22-2008 11:34 PM

Just make sure to delete all the files in the 'all' folder and replace it with whatever *.inc file you've downloaded. Then you have to use whichever database you just put the inc file in.

Ok, I found the "all" folder. Thanks. It contains two files: "fake.lnc" and "nLeague.lnc." I can safely delete both files and replace them with the "fixes.lnc" file I downloaded from the link you posted above, right? Can I undo this later if need be? Sorry for all the questions but I don't want to mess up the game in the process.

Rename the "all" folder "default_all" and make a new "all" folder. If anything goes wrong you delete the "all" folder you made and rename "default_all" back to "all". Hope that makes sense:)

This is true for EHM but not for wwsm\fm. I put the fixes.inc file into my "in progress" wwsm 2009 game and it worked fine, same with wwsm08.

Put the fixes.inc file into the "all" folder. If you are on Steam and using the 9.01 update make sure you put it in that folder. I was confused at first because Steam doesn't keep the updated data base in the default "db" folder. Instead you need to navigate to
"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\wwsm\data\updates\update-910\db\910\inc\all".

Once the file is in place start wwsm and go to "preferences>display&sound" and untick the skin cache option, tick the "always reload skin on confirm" and then hit the confirm button. The skin will redraw and the real league names\competitions will be in your game.

You can then go back and retick the skin cache to make the game load faster. And untick the "always reload skin on comfirm" if you wish since it really has no effect unless you are changing something in the game.

Hope that helps.

Okay about a year back when i was looking to start a new team one of the sites i went to had a breakdown of the different leagues and it broke down their finances etc. For the life of me i cannot find the site anymore. I am looking for resources for WWSM 08.
