Is this necessary for torrenting these days? I don't do it much but always go bareback when getting films.

I think you’re right. I think GDPR now protects us and we can openly commit piracy.

Its not for the privacy issue, its because most ISP's block the pirate bay websites unless you use a VPN.

HTH. :)

I always google 'pirate bay proxy' and usually the first link on the first site works.

If you’re starting from scratch and planning for the long haul, please by Carlos Vela ASAP. Obviously you won’t be able to if starting as Swindon. He’s one of the best strikers in that game once older.

(Not sue if he’s one of those players who develops differently with each game. In mine he was still a £35m world class striker at over 30.)

Tonton Zola Moukoku is the biz! TBF that could well be pre 2006, Chris Hope is good in defence for Town, and Gareth Jelleyman at LB! Cherbo Samba anyone?

01/02, the peak of the series. Cherno Samba too. 

One of my first lockdown projects was downloading 01/02 (as it's free now) and editing the database for 'real' potentials based on how things actually turned out.

So I now have a Swindon save in 2007 or so with Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. Not quite Peacock and Roberts.

Thats the one, Kevin Toms Football Manager but you had to have the 16k expansion pack dangling precariously off the back of the machine.

Ray Clemence was the best keeper and Peter Withe the best striker who cost £50k to sign.

Must be a couple of years younger than you, as mine was KJ Toms' Football Manager on the Spectrum 48k. I seem to remember all the players stats just changed every year, very odd.  Loved it though.

I was a very young (and fortunate) kiddie when I had a ZX81. The old folks got me a C64 in 84 - from Rumbelows in Chippenham if I recall correctly.

I had an Amiga 500 in 1998, second (or 3rd/4th) hand of course. I remember my mate (yeah they do exist) getting a C64 in about 1999 and us hammering the fuck out of Frogger.

Rings a bell. PV would more likely be accurate on that front. I remember playing Another World which was an interesting concept of a game for it's time. I believe that it was created using mostly Vector and was one of the first games to include proper cutscenes.

I absolutely loved Player Manager by Dino Dini, fantastic game using the KO Off game engine.

Pissed off as Swindon wasn't one of the 50 or so default teams, always used to play for Anco United.

I played that game as well PV! But I never really was a team player and used to just sprint around the pitch trying to dribble and score every time. The Player Manager was always miles faster than the rest of the players!

Yeah I played as a team and was still playing at right back while my PM was 45+ and had a pace of about 1/100 :) so I could still play, used to love that game, probably played it more hours than I have any Football Manager since.

I was absolutely awful at all those type of games, kick off, player manager etc. I enjoyed them though, which of course is the main thing!

C64 as in Commodore 64, that would have been bloody ancient in 1999, even the games system thingy.

I have a ZX Spectrum +2 and used to love playing Footballer of the Year!

I can remember playing a very simple football game where pre-game there were 3 or 4 mapped moves, and you had to line up your blob at the right time in order to score the goal or goals, thus giving you a better chance of winning games. It was something like Brian Cloughs soccer, or one of those types of games. Anyone have any ideas what is may have been?

FOTY - loved that game - played it a lot on my mates speccy.

Then bought it on my c64 and realised there really wasn't any more to it than I'd already seen.

Don't even need to press play on that video, I still remember the music!

Speccy 48k 8 colours and 256x192 pixels.

C64 16 colours and 320x200 pixels.

Easy win with the far superior hardware for the C64 there!

Yeah it's weird how as a kid now, it's quite fashionable to have older gaming systems. Back then, whilst several of my school mates were getting a relatively new Mega Drive/Saturn/SNES I was still playing on my Amiga but had acquired a Sega Master System (not the rounded one but the long rectangular one), bloody loved that console, had the laser gun and everything and a few secret games you could load if you keyed in the right directions as it powered up. Default was Safari Hunt, Hang On (I think) and a Maze game. For me though, I loved Action Fighter, Olympic Gold 1992 and Obviously Sonic.

Back to Amiga briefly, did any of you own the "Maverick" joypad. That was an awesome bit of peripheral magic and I think it was multi console too. Just remember it having several switches on it and ours must've had something break because it rattled inside as a lonely plectrum would in an acoustic.

Haha, yeah we had the black and yellow (ehh) buttons upright classic joystick.  But as a left hander, I genuinely loved it. Button bashing was easy too when you did the old wrap your jumper sleeve around your fingers technique and go billy-o at her!  :D
