about time too, but i didnt know there was a problem with the chiarman buying goalkeepers! there are actually alot of bugs
pffft,none of the bugs ive encountered seem to be addressed,although I suppose its better than nothin
Im sure they happen to some poor souls. Anyway thatnk god it's out, can't wait to View Walcott's stats and Hearts Finance's

As long as your FM 2006 copy is legal and FM 2006 isn't currently running then it will install fine. Simply open it and click install.
Where do i save patches?

ive have downloaded lots of patches but i just dont know where to save them could you please help me?
Yea. If you tell us what they are!!
help with patches

i mean like i downloaded the 6.0.3 patch so i could play without the disk but it doesent workso i just wanted to know how to make it work
The patch doesnt allow you to play without the disk it just updates stuff like stats and transfers and clubs finances, and fixes numerous bugs. To play without the disk you need the cd crack which you might find on limewire or somewhere.
In my experience with the NoCD cracks for CM they really slowed the game down. If I were you I'd just leave the disc in the drive. If you're a real FM player you wont use your PC for anything else anyway :D

Please don't talk about no cd cracks, it goes against the forum rules.
whens a new patch going to come out

terrys been awaiting treatment for 5 seasons with cracked ribs now :|

fulla cacky bugs
I never seem to get any bugs, obviously the game treats us good managers well by not giving us **** bugs :p

There probably wont be any new patches as they will be too busy with FM 2007 now.
I never get any either, on the very very very odd occasion i get array out of bounds when offering a contract but has only happened once or twice with the latest patch
i often get people on my future transfers out list long after ive sold them if ive offered them to clubs and also get it saying "bid" next to a player even if ive rejected the bids

quite annoying sometimes
Wouldn't the whole community of fm players be interested in after WC transfers and rankings and player skill changes and all of that, without having to wait till xmas? Are the makers expecting everybody (including Xbox360) to buy fm2007 a few months after fm2006 was released on some platforms? There has to be an update for 06 before 07 comes out? there just has to....
