    Need tactics help! (CM03-04)

    Hi all,

    Felt like trying this old game out, but I suck at it with Chelsea (and Inter). I like my teams well organised, rigid/solid, with high workrate, determination, and physicals like strength, tackling and counter attacking on. Usually in a 4-5-1 or 4-1-4-1 kind of formation

    But it isn't working out like in other CM games.

    And it doesn't let you see opponents team instructions and tactics, just their formation

    Would appreciate any team instructions, and tactical help how to win matches!

    (oh and any other tips and advice about the game would be useful as its the first time playing it, like how much to offer for a player, and contracts ... etc etc)

    Surely you are having a giraffe? Have you not heard of Diablo for 0304? Probably the most famous tactic in history of CM/FM

    343_scramjet. Sadly best formation for this game is not longer obtainable. PB_ToOn.

    Both of them wiped the floor in CM0304 lol. Diablo was paling in comparison .

    Making a killer tactic in cm0304 is quite easy. It involves two strikers and one central midfielder. Make sure the left striker have an arrow pointing left and the right striker have an arrow pointing right. Then make a long arrow from your MC pointing upwards between your two strikers. That player would score a shitload of goals.

    Here is how Scramjet looked like. Only got pic of it...

    But damn it was a beast tactic for cm0304 lol.

    Actually... Lucky you. I did have it stored:

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/sd...y_scramjet.zip

    GK: standard

    SW and DC: Heading and Pace must be over 15 and good anticipation, marking etc. De la Cuesta, Mexes, Albrechtsen, Titus Bramble, Darren kenton I've used.

    ML, MR: Heading, pace are the main ones. Edu, Valery Mezague, Nigel De Jong, Nieuwenburg, Maxwell I've used.

    DMC: Heading, pace again mainly. Just your normal DMC character. I've used Abubakari Yakubu and Vieira.

    MC: I use an attacking player there with good pace, dribbling, flair etc and it helps if his heading is quite high like Diego and I've used Dickson Etuhu there.

    FL/C: Heading, Pace, preferably left footed. I've used Boukhari, Thierry Henry, Yakubu (the Portsmouth one).

    FC: Put your best header of the ball here but obviously it helps if he is also quick. I've used Ibrahimovic, Julio Ricardo Cruz, Rigano, Kim Dong-Hyun.

    FR: Pace, Finishing, Off the ball. Robinho, Tsigalko types. I've used both those two plus Jermaine Pennant, Robert Pires, Benjamin Lauth.

    A few more things:

    1. As for changing things for wet weather, change the passing of the DCs to mixed.
    2. Have you changed the hold up ball instruction from one winger to the other? If you've mirrored the tactic but left this instruction on the other winger then it won't work as well.
    3. Finally, if none of that works try the ordinary Scramjet with no tweaks and mirroring, and see if that works better.


    I hope you can win a match with it at least. Also bear it mind it can take time to adapt to your team. I was drawing/losing when I started with Arsenal, but after 5/6 games or so I started winning, then it goes from strength to strength and you start thrashing opponents. Hope it works!

    I rate it nr 2. Sadly nr 1 I cannot find anywhere. Searched mails and sites. PB_ToOn made by Paul Buxton. It was THE best tactic I used for this game. Solid as a rock.
