    Championship Manager 2 - mini-tips

    Part 1: All the cheats for CM2.
    (Note: All of the cheats below can be done on any
    version of CM2.)

    TIPS No.1 - Exit the game without saving.
    There is a simple and easy way to boot to DOS prompt
    or Windows without
    having to save your game. Simply just press the
    asterisk(*) key on your
    keyboard and you'll be able to quit immediately
    without saving. This is
    an essential trick because you can just return to the
    game and start off
    with your previous savegame. In this way, you can
    never lose a match.
    Just save up before any match and exit if you lost it.

    TIPS No.2 - Prevent your star players from leaving.
    Ever managed a lower division club and some of your
    star players(star???)
    wanted to leave for a bigger club? Well this nifty
    tricks will prevent
    them from doing so. Place your unhappy players on loan
    and when some big
    clubs approached them, simply reject their offers. In
    this way, your star
    players will stay on your club.

    TIPS No.3 - Manage International jobs.
    I'm sure many of you would like to be manager of one
    of the International
    teams, but it takes too long for you to do so. The
    following steps will
    allow you to manage International jobs. Look up for
    the team's manager's
    name (eg. Terry Venables for England), then add a new
    player to your game
    and put down the manager's name instead.
    Eg. when you want to manage England, simply add a new
    player and put the
    name as "Terry Venables."

    (Note: You can only manage the teams that are
    correspond to your league
    game, Italy for Italian CM2, Germany for German CM2

    TIPS No.4 - Buy any interested players for "FREE".
    This is the best cheats for CM2 as of now. This cheat
    allows you to buy
    any interested players for "FREE". Yes I mean
    "FREE"!!!! Approach any
    players that you think will most probably join you.
    For the asking price,
    place as much value as you can(mostly double the
    original value), until
    the opposite club accept your offer immediately, then
    press 'OK.' Next,
    go to 'adjust offer' and change the value to 'FREE',
    then press 'CANCEL'
    and you will exit the screen. Wait for the players to
    negotiate his
    weekly wages and accept his conditions. If the player
    eventually joins
    you, he will be available for FREE !!!

    TIPS No.5 - Exchange players cheats. (For unpatched
    When one of your lousy player is wanted by a club, set
    this player's
    asking price to a very high value (20M). Then approach
    one of the player
    you want from the team that targets your player and
    make an exchange of
    players. The opposition club will agree to your
    exchange offer, thus you
    can get the player you want provided he is available.

    TIPS No.6 - Shortlist players that are going to
    retire. (For unpatch CM2)
    Shortlist those great players who are going to retire
    soon, eg.Klinsmann,
    Romario, Koeman, Gullit etc. When they eventually
    retire, those on your
    shortlist will be replaced by a very young player but
    with the same
    abilities as the previous retired player. You will
    then get many young yet
    talented players in your squad, usually they cost very

    TIPS No.7 - Buy your favourite star player. (just
    Ever wanted to buy your favourite star player but they
    won't join you? I
    have found a way by making them join your club. First
    when you start a new
    game, put down the manager name as the player's name
    (eg. Cantona, Maldini)
    and when the player is available, try to buy him and
    he's yours.

    Part 2: General hints of CM2.
    (Just some general hints from me.)
    ##When you start a new game and you find that some of
    your young players'
    attribute is very good, beware! Cos they do not
    usually play that good in
    actual matches. You can loan them out and wait until
    they are about 22-23
    in age then try them out. Young players do lack
    experience, aren't they?

    ##Try not to put your fowards as midfielders, they
    usually play as support
    role or as striker.

    ##Bear in mind that wingers must be good in creativity
    and pace, as well as
    stamina to make long and fast runs.

    ##Try not to use slow defenders, as they will allow
    fast opponent attackers
    to break through. They are also slow to run back to

    ##Sweeper must be good in headers and marking, as well
    as strength. They do
    not need much pace though.

    ##It is best to have a striker good in creativity and
    one good in shooting.
    One can provide for the other to score, which is a
    very good tactic, rather
    than having two sharp shooter, but their chances of
    scoring is much lesser.

    ##I don't find playing anchor a good tactic as they
    usually do not play
    that good in matches. Well, that's my idea anyway.

    Part 3: Very useful formation to use.
    (Below is a good formation which I use, and I won most
    of the game.)

    A A A = Attacker
    . .
    . .
    . .
    LF ^ ^ RF LF = Left Forward RF
    = Right Foward
    | |
    | |
    | |
    ^ MF MF ^ MF = Midfield / Attacking
    | |
    | |
    | |
    | |
    | |
    | | LB = Left Back RB
    = Right Back
    LB CB RB CB = Center Back
    SW SW = Sweeper

    GK GK = Goalkeeper

    Tactic to use: Direct style

    and another page I found, I like the first tactic.

    What do you think is the best and most successfull formation you can use on CM/CM2/CM3?


    With long ball style, and lines forward towards the middle striker from the the three midfielders and the support. That formation always worked well on CM and the first versions of CM2.


    My friend the best formation is the following:

    Forward striker


    Left mid center mid/ def mid Right mid

    Left def center def right def


    Direct ball


    In CM2 I mostly went with






    Passing style

    Does anyone have the original 1.37 game they could upload the folder?

    I have a 1.37 cracked version but that doesn’t appear to work on my dual boot pc which has win 98.

    it asks for the disk but I have the CM2 disk and the 9697 disk and won’t accept either so presume is to do with the crack.

    i can view the player stats in boah editor but easier when you can just look at the squads in the game for my CM2 0001 attempt which I want to have the squads at September 95 not months later like my CM2 version I bought.
