As an avid player of the Football Manager games, I just wanted to find out if anyone else on here plays them? If so, has anyone tried to edit the A-League at all? I'm desperate to make it a 14-team competition with a second Kiwi side to create a "New Zealand Derby". :)

Tried once or twice in the past few years but never made it past pre-season. The game's just too complicated. Might as well get my badges and get paid to do that :)

Same goes for lots of other strategy games like civilization (from #4 onward)...


That's why I still play Sensible World of Soccer and Civ1

Ah, SWOS! Now that game was ahead of its time. Remember I used to play as the Kiwi leagues (usually Central United) in the early versions back in the early-mid 90's. Good times.

Keen to edit the FM20 database to expand the A-League and include an Auckland or a Christchurch team as well but it's a nightmare! :)

You can download SWOS very easily and run it as a standalone or run it via DosBox...

So much fun.

Currently coaching Switzerland and we just won the European Cup. Started in San Marino, then Far Oer Islands, some Baltic League, J2, J-League before getting my big break.

The version I have is also updated to 2017 or so which is nice...

Cool! Thanks for the head's up! I'll give that a try. Been well over a decade since I last played. Brilliant that these games have stood the test of time..

Just started playing it again. To be fair I hand over a lot of my roles to the Assistant Manager.

Playing as the NIX - we have no money and no crowds... but at least there is no talk of dropping us from the competition!!

Nice! I think I might start a season as the Nix too. The editor for the A-League is complicated at best so I might have to put the thoughts of a Kiwi Derby on the backburner for now. I do enjoy playing as the ISPS Handa Prem too though.

I haven't bought FM20 mainly because the initial match engine was borked (e.g. one on ones, long balls over the top, etc).

May consider FM20 but my Glory hunter save on FM19 is only in year 4 and want to see how I get on. I'm currently with Borussia Dortmund. Have secured the Bundesliga and Pokal but keep getting knocked out of Europe too easily. Looking for a move this year but only just start of season and no jobs have opened up.

Just won the league with the NIX in my fourth season and have moved on to Bolton in the Championship to save them from relegation.

Hard been the NIX - we make 400k a year in sponsorship where as Sydney makes 11million... I was always buying and selling to stay afloat.

The Dell Boy of managers!

I used the editor to put the nix in league 2 in FM18. so much fun. sooo many hours lost...as well as games. We peaked by getting into the championship, but currently are back in L2 and its not looking good. 

I bloody love this game, but I find it drains my time soo much, and I also miss the playing part that fifa has. If there was a hybrid between the two, I'd be on that in a second.

Also, FM20 is free for the next 2 days and everyone expecting it will go on special after that.

I tried with the free trial, but haven't played since CM 2!  Was quickly overwhelmed and bailed before I even got to matchday.  Couldn't cope with the detail!

So NBA star Larry Nance Jr. just told his Twitter followers that Chris Wood is the most annoying player to come up against in FM20. Quarantine making people post the strangest things
