    Anyone remember what patch they used with this (/start date etc)?

    I've tried 4 or 5 variations now and every time it stops working in the September?

    Kiki and I did this with 3.68 tapanified 2.21.

    I created a new savegame with starting year of 2015 and ODB 2010 database. Running smooth as silk (in my experience)

    So I've been taking my time and got through 9 seasons of this challenge. Dominated with Roma (2 league wins, runner up Champs league year 1, winner year 2), then my second nationality being French let me get the Lyon job in February, and managed to turn their season round to win the league, won it each of the next 3 seasons too with 2 champions league wins and one runner up. Then moved to Panathanaikos, which made Greece so easy! Again turned their season round, and won the league in each of the 3 years. Great performance in the champions league too, with one runner up and then in my last season beating Real Madrid in the final...

    Now I have a problem though... It doesn't seem possible to manage any African nation! After two years searching for a job decided to investigate further, the save game editor says that they are not active. Is there any way I can change this?

    Literally they never come up, all of the staff on the African countries just say "Unknown"

    I remember finding it hard to get an African job too.... they tend to fire all their managers around the same time, and then there's nothing for a few years

    In the rules in the first post mate, yes second nationalities are allowed.

    Merry Christmas all! My Christmas present to myself was finally finishing this one hell of a slog of a challenge! It didn't help that I had to start again due to not having any African jobs available!

    In the spirit of the challenge I started as Italian, but put a 2nd nationality as French to help with that first move. That really paid off and after 2 trophy laden years in Rome I moved to Lyon which set the tone for the success to come. Out of my 20 league seasons I only once failed to win the league, and I don't see that as a blemish as taking over Levante in December I managed to finish runners up behind Real - it helped that Barca were a mid table team during my time in Spain.

    The hardest I found getting jobs other than that was in Greece and Croatia, but once I had the jobs the leagues seemed really easy. Buying up young players they couldn't seem to cope with my 4-2-3-1 formation. In Germany I landed the Wolfsburg job, which was a gift to be fair, they were already in the Champions League, and Bayern weren't even in the Bundesliga any more! Then for the final task I had the luxury of managing an Everton side who had also been competing well (newly promoted Manchester United turned me down, but Champions League qualified Everton did not, who'd have thought it!) Though surprisingly the Premier league was perhaps the toughest. By far my lowest points to game - but still 3 championships!

    All of that meant I was competing for the Champions League in 16 seasons. I'm assuming you get points for each of these seasons? My record here was similar to Jose, I never failed to make the knock out stages, and managed 7 titles with 6 different teams... my Lyon team winning in both years they competed, my poor Greek Panserraikos losing out twice to Barcelona in the final being the only team I didn't take all the way!

    My luck with jobs also held for the African role, where I had the defending champions the Ivory Coast - I managed to even with the Confederations Cup with them in the lead up to the African Cup of Nations. Wish I could have held on for the World Cup but that wasn't part of the challenge...

    Anyway, it's been a while, this may be the only challenge I've completed this year (I started another one at some point, not sure if I'll finish it before the new year though) but really enjoyed it in the main! Here is what I believe to be my final points tally:

    In my game there is no job for an African national team for 10 years. I tried to add a new manager, and the program does not allow management of an African national team. Why?

    Sorry for the delay in replying mate, I don't know what I can advise, as others have said further up it appears African Nations don't sack their managers often but when they do lots of countries do, but you'd have at least some come up over 10 years.

    I'll ask the fellow mods what course of action is best and get back to you.

    I don't undestand why you can't... Is it a bug? I never wait much more than 2-3 years to take an African national team...
