Woaw, I was sooo hooked on this game some ten years ago. Simple, to the point and NOT in need of graphics! It was a good step to get to Championship Manager :brain:

Ok, in this game we return to the beginning of the manager games genre.
emm... Football manager - 1982? There's a full decade in there.
To the east, always to the east...

I have recently just started playing this game again after many many years. Like the prev user I initially had the older version (which had Stuttgart in the Superleague).

The players peak value is purely based on what club they originated from. The idea is to buy young players from teams whose value is high. If you notice all Werder Bremen players peak at 9m (from memory), all Benfica players peak at 2.9 million etc. Therefore buy young cheap players from big clubs.

Tactically, I haven't found the ideal formation or anything. If you play the "watch the game" mode having players who can beat their man is essential otherwise it just becomes a bit of a long ball ping-pong game.

I can hardly understand what you mean with your post. Try describing your problem again, slowly and calmly.

it works fine on dosbox . a great old game this.
reminds me of a more version of simple champ manager on amiga , i played that for months on end
same tactics work too, play 3-5-2 get 2 good strikers and pack the midfield with quality then play long ball with hard tackles and a offside trap
you need to some backup players too cos you get loads sent off.

Since 1992 I play this game and I still know the feeling when I started my 286 with 1mb memory. With two of my friends I played many seasons. Nobody understanded why we played such a game. It had many options en you could really watch the game. Sometimes I play it again with dosbox en it works fine by me. After 1-0, Wizard games published 2-1. I am looking for years now for the full version of this game but I havent found it yet. I also would like to know how they programmed this game. The alter.exe can be used for editing the game but the options are limited.
