Got the game yesterday and after playing it for an hour I can already say that it is far better than FM2005. You can actually sell players for real money, not an eight of their value, and you can buy players far easier than before.

Th enew features also look nice.

A question, if you download the patch after you have started a game, does it take effect on that game?

I think that the patch works with saved games, but it can take a while for certain changes to assert themselves in a game that was started before the patch - for example, things like the match engine will take a few months of game time before they start to act like they've been patched.

Really seems to have improved the game though - my midfielders score now!

didnt get the game yet but i will as soon as its out here... sounds good especially if the coments about it being better then fm2005 are true ... one question about the patch though, will it have any affect on the no-cd crack ?


Ahem move along ohmy.gif

Seriously though i'm no stranger to piracy (so what, i'm a student)

FM2006 is so much better than 2005, almost entirely because buying and selling players is about 10million times better.

If you have a player rated 5m, you no longer have to offer him to clubs at 500k to get him off your books. Clubs bid for your players and you can almost get rid of deadwood at the end of the season.

Similarly, clubs accept bids for their players far more often than before.

The only problem that I've found is that the transfer list is usually quite sparce.

The team talk option and tactical changes during gameplay make you really feel as if you are having a tactical impact on the game, rather than just watching a blue bar go up and down.

One thing I like about 2006 is at the start of a new season the board can offer you a few choices on either having more money for wages or more money for transfer funds. Found that particularly useful.


But whats the point in your own contract. Why would you want more wages for yourself blink.gif
