I recently installed fifam 08 after 4 consecutive dissapointments (09, 10, 11, 12) and to my big surprise, the 3D in original configuration was incredibly good. I can`t understand how in 4 years, this part of the game went so wrong.

any how, I am now trying to make a complete experience out of fifam 08 and I am looking for something like total reality mod.

I have lots of materials from 06 and 07 edition. do those work under 08? are there any 3D patches for 08? other files of importance like scripts, etc?

to all fans of fifam 08, lets make a blog or something to revive the fifam 08 and to show BF the regresed the game instead of improving it!.

so, to anyone who knows .where fifam 08 patches can be found, please post it here.

to anyone that has files for 08, please make a small effort and upload them for others.

thank you!!!

P.S. unfortunately, 04 and 06 editions don`t work under windows 7 64bit. if anyone could help with this issue, please do this...

3D is the same. Not just the engine, the AI also!
Right now, the only chance FifaM13 has is PERFECT fine tuned game progression, with no bug whatsoever.
Will the DEMO prove this? It should, or I`ll keep my money safe.

I too love FM 08 - tried 09-11, but didn't like most of the things they changed, so returned to 08. I always try to keep my database up-to-date, but as you can imagine, that's not that easy. If you (or anyone else in here) are really interested, I could upload a copy of my database (which has nearly 30 mb). I started once with files from fm-arena.de and managerfifa.com, but after a lot of editing there may not be much of those files left.

The main problem is that many players are still in the youth ranks as the game is now 4 years old and players born after june 1991 are just 15 when you start a new game. Didn't find a way to solve this yet (as I don't want to change birthdates because of the massive amount of player pictures that won't work then).

So, if you're interested, just let me know.

it`s not just about me. I already started to dig down into my old HDD and found lots of interesting files from old times.

what I want to do is to create an archive with all kinds of files for 08 to upload on gamefront (as files uploaded by registered members have long validity) and hopefully to gather enough files that eventually some sort of total reality mod can be achieved.

also, to create a forum only for 08 fans.

IMPORTANT!!!

what I discovered in my archive so far: megapatch v5.1 from fmcorner with database and badges and a patch with lots of kits. I will upload them as soon as possible.

Hello there!
I've just registered in this forum to reply to this post.

I'm too a FM08 player. In fact, I quitted FM11 after that horrible gameplay (too damn easy) and the bugs on the long-term the game had.
In the spanish community AmantesFifaM, there is a little community of players who plays FM08 still today!

For example, there are:
A) A lots of 3d Stadiums made from "elsuper" (maybe you know him from older editions of the game).
B) He also made a lot of scripts, for example, he added many cups, fixed the regelation on Spanish third division - 2°B.
C) There are also gameplays. Elsuper made one, there's other from one user, and I've made my own on base on one I've found in this forum from "SMBTouch".
D) Kits! There has to be nearly 150 pages of new kits to add to the game. Last ones were added yesterday :)

The Forum url is: http://www.amantesfi...fifa-manager-08

You need to register, but hey, it's just a second.

After that, I reccomend you check this thread, you can translate it with google, it's the basic workthrough to add innovations to the FifaM08: http://www.amantesfi...an-volver-al-08

Also, I'm on favour of an international community of this awesome game if that revives it more!
Can't believe how EA/BF mislead the game after FM09.

if anyone has colections with kits and stadiums, please make an archive and upload on gamefront!!!

P.S. gamefront offers 180 days validity for files uploaded by registered users (registration is free). only condition is files to be active. active means it was downloaded at least once a day. so practically every six month, uploader should check his/her account to see the status of files.

The problem with kits is that the ID of teams varies depending on the patchs used. So, making an .exe is not always the best choice. That's why we on that forum just send the jpg file, and then the user has to convert it to .tga and save it on the kits folder.

If I can add something more to this thread, I will :)

I installed fmcorner`s megapatch v5.1 and a quick check sais all ID`s are the same as FIFAM12, so I believe megapatch v5.1 use the default ID`s.

smbtouch, your gameplay is probably the best that I've tried.

I've modified it to play longer matches, and it's just excellent.
are you still playing fm08?

Hello,

This last patch was uploaded directly from my game's folder :rolleyes:

yes, i'm still playing it, and i think i'll play it for few more years...i like every part of it, with all mods included it beats any other manager out there...specially as this series is ruined with poor 3D development..or lack of development, i don't even wont to try to play any new game, it was just constant dissapointment year after year <_<

I also didn't like any other manager, football or championship, both still don't make 3D as enjoyable ad 3D in 08 for me, that's why i have sticked with 08 for so long

You should try this latest version, i made small adjustments over time, and now it's really nicely tuned, i think it would work great for longer matches

Just tried your new gameplay, smbtouch (I was on vacation, with no internet access but with FM08 on the laptop).

It's excellent! I really love how the game develops, I would like a little more of patient build up, but I'll figure it out on my own. But the core it's awesome.

Can I ask you a question? How do you handle the difficulty of a gameplay? Because there are some which are harder than others, but the difficulty variables (on season.ini and common.ini) seems to be deactivated.

Hello,

glad you liked it, i think there is no real difficulty meter here, if you want more or less challenge you have to adjust it in the game's menu (salaries, merchandise, morale, etc...) Other that that, it's down to individual player and his skill on how will he perform, if you pay attention to every single detail, have great assistant coach who handles training, and if you bring great players and keep their morale high it does makes it easy mostly...that's why i always start with small teams in lower leagues and build team from the scratch...and i don't abuse youth transfers :)
