Did they win one of the cups?
I have a slight problem. Running Tapani Patch 2.21, ODB players starting in 2001/2.
Just finished my first season with Ipswich, and finished 6th in the EPL. The Coefficient rating shows that I should qualify for UEFA Cup, (Top 4 Champs League, next 3 places for UEFA Cup) however, after the update for the new season, it says that Chelsea and Blackburn have qualified, even though they finished 8th and 10th respectively.
Any idea why this happened? And is there any save game editor that I can use to amend who qualified? Also worried it may be a problem each season now.
Did they win one of the cups?
5th-7th For the Uefa seems excessive. So at a guess- like Fods said, did either of them teams win 1 of the domestic cups? normally it would only be 5th for Uefa, and then 6th, if the league cup winner is already in Europe and 7th too, if someone had also won the Uefa/CL. Also, if the F.A Cup winners are a team already in Europe then that place will goto the F.A Cup runners up and not the next league placing
Having said that, I've known a couple bugs before but normally its only the starting season where it might be out
Is there some way, using non active competitions, to add the final phase of North American Gold Cup, with deafult teams eg. usa, mex, crc, hon, jam, ttb, pan, els?
Hi, Tapani! You said in your first post that the game will run for 100+ seasons without serious errors. Do you know how the number of seasons could be affected (if at all) if you play with all leagues selected as I like to do? I'm hoping for about 30-40 just to be safe.
I've never used the tapani patch before, so this is unfamiliar territory for me, but it's something I'm looking forward to. I'd like to add my gratitude for all the hard work that you and many others have put in to keeping the game alive!
I am almost positive that Tapani ran his 100+ season tests with all leagues selected on max DB
hey dudes! anyone know why i cant seem to run the cmpatcher-2.21.1 file?? keeps saying its not safe and then gets removed to receycle bin :-(
disable your antivirus while running it, it's probably detected as a malware or so but it's clean
thanks for your reply milo! is that just a one time disable for extracting or every time i play the game? cheers
yay! able to download it but its not working for me lol just says ERROR CANNOT OPEN FILE :-(
i would insert a screenshot but thats not working either!!
only when you extract and run it.
what operating system do you have? also, run the patch and the game as administrator
i have an HP Envy Phoenix. its a 64 bit, x64 based processor
do i have to drag the cmpatcher file into the championship manager folder yea?
run as admin
then it says select your CM01/02 executable
then im lost lol
The patcher can be donwloaded to anywhere on your computer and should detect your CM install.
If it doesn't just enter the correct location. Mine for example is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02
its not working for me at all :-(
i choose 2015 start, coloured attributes and unprotected contracts then when i hit ok or run or whatever it is it just says ERROR CANNOT OPEN FILE
Could cry :-( lol
Right click on cm0102.exe > Properties > Compatibility > tick Run As Administrator then try running the patcher
Also make sure you have extracted it from the zip folder (if you got it from the download section) - it may not run correctly if still in the zip folder
thanks for your help Dermotron! i shall give that a try tomorrow when i am on the computer again. fingers crossed! cheers man! :-)
Hi, I've played for 3 seasons and I discovered that many clubs have financial problems, specially the clubs in lower division such as div.2 and div.1 England, Serie C and Serie B Italy etc. But also the middle clubs in the first divisions. My own club (q.p.r in PL) is running red numbers, it seems to be because of really high salaries or really low income, tickets etc. Do anybody else have this problem or/and know any solution to this?
Thanks in advance.
it's a quite common problem, patchers are trying to find a solution but it's not easy at all
Thanks for reply.
Too bad to hear thought. Hope they find a way. Most fun imo is that the salaries stays but the income increases televison, sponsors, tickets etc if possible. So its more realistic.
I googled around and found a patch named flex 2 that allows you to set how much money there should be for tv, prize etc. I tried the patch but I don't think i managed it to work correctly cause a lot of top teams (like Arsenal, Liverpool etc) went bankruptcy in the very first season. However the prize money changed for the better.. Have anybody tested it and managed it to work?
RE: Financial Issues
Have a read of this gents:-
I play on Tapani/saturns 2.21.1+ patch with April 2016 update, I recently got to 18 seasons with 8 playable Europeans Leagues in the foreground, I moved around countries/clubs frequently and didn't see 1 club in any danger of financial/bankruptcy issues.
