Football Manager In-Game Tactics

The Winning Tactic

| 0 σχόλια

Jack Edwards, the creator of “The Winning” tactic has come up with different versions from 1.00 to 3.00 being the latest. I must admit that it has worked out tremendously and I am sure fans who have tested it agrees as well. It is not 100% sure win tactic but, it has proven to be very successful which makes it realistic. Do try out the tactic and post your results in the forums!

Ok, the winning is a pure attacking formation, set about on the new patch, i hope you enjoy winning lots of your games!

DR/DL - Very Attackingly Minded, but encouraged to make decisive tackles when they on the break A solid defensive player is a must here, A pacey DL Or DR Would do the buisness.

DC’S: Very solid, Very defensive, I avoided spreading them out as this would create a loophole, i wouldnt suggest tweaking

DMC: I Made a diamond here, it encourages controlling the center, and forces them to play down the centre, the DMC’S Should look out onto the wings and wont run themselves very much, I suggest someone like Hargreaves or somone with alot of experience.

LM/RM: Both very attacking in there own respective positions, Should be quite young and pacey, Ronaldo was Really class when i tested in Manchester, Giggs was Ok, but not the best..

AM: Will score a few goals from tim to time, Maybe a few screamers, they get the ball to the front men and provide plenty of assists.

FC: The typical target man should slot in here perfectly, Be prepared to change a few things, If something is not going well up here, change the delivery. Miroslav Klose and Carlos Tevez both did well here!


Dont be afraid to change lazy players in a match, you need hard workers if you are going to succeed with my tactic. Especially pacey players, You will succeed if you have a squad under 28 Years old

Adding Your Picture to FM 2008

ramosHere’s a simple tutorial in adding your own manager picture into FM 2008.

Ok lets start.

1. Get your picture ready
It must be in .PNG format with size of 180 x 180 pixels. Preferably made using any good graphics software such as Adobe Photoshop, save it as PNG-24.

2. Locating the correct folder
I know alot of questions asked about putting facepacks in and needing to create them ourselves, but its quite easy actually.

Once you installed FM 2008, there will be a folder already been created in your My Documents. Open that folder and go into :
“Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2008 > graphics > players”

What you should have is “Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2008″
What you need to create is “graphics > players”

Once you are in “players”, if you already installed previous facepacks you should have your managed club in “players” folder. If you don’t have them yet, go to our Downloads Centre to download them.

For example:

“graphics > players > England > Premier League > Tottenham”

3. Edit the config.xml

Find “config.xml” and Edit it using Wordpad or any document editing program. Once in it, find a line that looks like this:

The numbers are actually called Player ID. This ID will identify the picture in the folder to display on the correct player. So to find that unique ID for yourself, load your game,


go to “Preferences > Display & Sound > Tick Show Unique ID


So once you have that ID, go back to config.xml and replace the numbers with the ID you just had.

4. Rename your picture.png

Remember step 1? Creating your own picture and placing it under “graphics > players” ? Make sure you rename it to the ID number you had earlier.


Well thats it! Load your FM game and check it out!
