    Throughout this FAQ you will see the words "Index Number" and "Search
    Field". These are to help you locate certain sections of the FAQ, as
    listed in the index. Use Ctrl + F on most Word Processors and in Internet
    Explorer to use the Find/Locate command.
    
    Example: If you are looking for The section "Game Setup - Settings", type
    'i-a' into the Find box. 'i' is the Index Number and 'a' is the section
    number. This will take you to the beginning of the section.

    Language
    ========
    This is which langauge you want to run the game in. It's suggested you run
    CM4 in your home language.
    
    Currency
    ========
    Choose either your local currency or the currency of the country you are
    playing in (every major currency is included).
    *BUG NOTE* In the unpatched version of CM4, the Ter skin does not have the 
    Euro symbol (€)
    
    Wages
    =====
    Whether the game shows wage format in weekly, monthly or yearly. Note: this
    does not effect how the wages are paid out. They are still paid on a weekly
    basis.
    
    Temperature
    ===========
    Celsius, Farenheit or Kelvin - it really depends which side of the Atlantic
    you live on (or whether you live in a science lab)
    
    Database Size
    =============
    Your computer processor and RAM will determine what setting to use here.
    The better your computer the quicker "Large" will run. Minimum spec computers
    can also use the Large database, although it will sufficiently slow the game.
    
    Auto-Save
    =========
    In the unpatched version of the game, it has a habit of crashing, so I'd
    choose monthly. You can also disable Auto-Save if it annoys you too much.
    
    Continue Game Timeout
    =====================
    This is how much time the game waits before continuing. If you remain inactive
    the game will continue after the set amount of time.
    
    Use Real Players
    ================
    Always have this on, I really don't see the point in using Fake players.
    Unless you know nothing about football and it won't make a difference.
    
    Play Sounds
    ===========
    I have this set to off, as I play music instead. The sounds are just
    basic matchday sounds.
    
    Select Skin
    ===========
    CM4 allows you to skin the game, the default skin Ter is good enough for
    me though. In future versions of this FAQ I will list places to download
    new skins.
    
    Full Screen
    ===========
    If your display is greater than 1024 x 768, you can choose to play the game
    windowed. Minor Note: the game plays quicker in full screen mode.
    
    Enable Background Changes
    =========================
    This slightly slows the game, but not much. When you change screens during
    the game, new pictures will appear relevant to the area you are in. You
    can also add extra pictures for the game to use.
    
    Server
    ======
    If you are playing a Network game, you will have to check(tick) this box.

    Search Field: i-b
    
    Load Quick Start
    ================
    If you only want to play one league with the minimum database, choose
    this option, if not...
    
    Start New Game
    ==============
    After the database loads, you will be presented with the Select Leagues
    Screen.
    
    Select Leagues
    ==============
    Deselect all Leagues using Deselect All, and then choose which leagues
    you wish to play. You can choose to play all the leagues, but I doubt
    there are many computers in the world with such capabilities. I suggest
    playing one or two leagues, unless your computer is excellent. In CM4
    you can also choose the game start date if you select more than one
    League. Another option is too chose which divisions you want to use
    i.e. if you are playing in England, you can choose to use the
    Conference or not. You can also choose just to use the top division
    if your computer is pretty pathetic. Press Continue when you are
    ready.
     
    Select Recommended
    ==================
    Cm4 will assess your computer and give you a number of Leagues to select
    which will make the game run smoothly. I recommend you only use one or
    two divisions more than recommended at most!
    
    Add Manager
    ===========
    Obviously you can't play a management game without managing someone, but
    the question is who to manage? You may want to choose your supported team,
    or some team from the bottom division to guide up to the top, or you could
    just want to pick the best team with the best players. It's up to you, and
    you have no time limit, so choose carefully (or randomly, if that's your
    bag baby).
    On this screen you will also be asked to add a nationality and favourite
    club, these may determine the jobs you get, or the players you bring to
    the club i.e. Swedes are less likely to get the England managerial position
    than English nationals; also players from your home country like playing
    for a boss of that nationality.
    
    What next....
    =============
    You can add more managers if you want, or you can continue with the game.
    Once you've decided to continue, you'll be in the big bad world of football
    management. If you're stuck, and need help, read the manual that comes with
    the game. [If you noticed, I just copied this paragraph directly from my
    CM01/02 guide, hehe, I'm lazy]

    Introduction
    ============
    After you select your team, the Chairman and/or Board of Directors
    will set you a goal for the upcoming season. This is what they
    expect from you. If you don't achieve their goal, you could be
    facing some time on Unemployment Benefit. But if you're lucky,
    they might not sack you even if you don't achieve the goal.
    
    In CM4, the Fans will also have expectations from you. These
    are usually similar to what the Board want. But, the fans aren't
    as loyal as the board, if you start performing badly, you'll be
    out on your ear. And I should know I've been sacked once already!
    
    At the end of every month, the board and fans will assess how you are
    performing and give an analysis. You can check this at any time via
    the Club Confidence Screen.
    
    The Club Expectations are, as follows:
    
    Serious Championship Challenge
    ==============================
    You have to finish 1st at the end of the season. Nothing more,
    nothing less.
    
    Expect Continental Qualification
    ================================
    You have to get into a Continental competition, any competition
    will do(with the exception of the Super Cup and Intertoto Cup).
    The board don't care how you do it, but get it done! But try not
    to finish in the bottom half of the table if you do make it via
    the cup.
    
    Expect Promotion
    ================
    You have to get your club up to the next footballing level,
    possibly without the use of play-offs.
    
    Expect Play-Offs
    ================
    Your club needs to be in the Play-Offs at the end of the season.
    You don't necessarily need to win the Play-offs, just be in them.
    
    Respectable League Position
    ===========================
    Your club should be in the top half of your league, come closing
    day - the higher the better!
    
    Stay Clear of Relegation
    ========================
    Exactly what it says on the tin. Do not get relegated, but you
    better not be just on the edge of the Relegation Zone, or your
    job could be in jeopardy(And I don't mean the TV show).
    
    Battle Bravely Against Relegation
    =================================
    Try not to be relegated, but if it happens, it happens. It's not
    your fault you're managing a team of no-hopers.
    
    Improve Club Squad
    ==================
    If you get relegated, it doesn't matter. Just make sure the team
    is improved enough, so will you get promoted next season from that
    lower division if you do get relegated. (Don't do a Warbury!)

    Intro
    =====
    The first thing you'll want to do is look at your team, to see your strengths
    and many weaknesses. Once you find out these you can build the team into a
    superpower.
    
    Goalkeepers
    ===========
    Most teams have just one good keeper and one below-par one. If you're lucky,
    you may have got two half-decent ones. Also, some advice for all positions:
    check out your reserves and youth teams, they might have some good players
    too (Ronaldo starts off at Real Madrid B after all).
    The stats which goalkeepers need are:
    +Balance
    +Bravery
    +Handling
    +Positioning
    +Reflexes
    NOTE FOR ALL PLAYERS:
    They do not need all these to be over 15 (over 17 for top divisions), but
    most will need to be. Also try to have none under 7 (under 10 for top teams).
    
    Defenders
    =========
    Depending on your formation, you will need between 3 and 5 first team
    defenders (unless you're playing some strange hybrid formation). You will
    also need one backup for each defender (i.e for 4-4-2, four DCs, 2 DLs and 
    2 DRs). This is recommended, but can be more lenient if you have a player
    you can play in numerous positions (e.g. Rory Delap of Ireland).
    Defenders need good stats in:
    +Anticipation
    +Bravery
    +Heading
    +Marking
    +Pace
    +Positioning
    +Strength

    Midfielders
    ===========
    Again you will need two players for each position. 4 MCs, 2 MRs, and 2 MLs in
    a 4-4-2 formation. (P.S. not musical MCs)
    Midfielders need good stats in:
    +Anticipation
    +Creativity (for wingers)
    +Crossing (for Wingers)
    +Off The Ball
    +Pace
    +Passing
    +Positioning
    +Teamwork
    
    Forwards/Strikers
    =================
    Again, two for each position in a 4-4-2, but only 4 strikers are needed if
    you are playing 4-3-3. They need good stats in:
    +Acceleration
    +Anticipation
    +Heading
    +Off the Ball
    +Pace
    +Shooting
    
    Compare Players
    ===============
    A helpful way to decide which players to use is the Compare Players option,
    which can be accessed from the player's individual screen. You can then
    compare him with up to 10 different players. Displayed on this screen is
    a comparison between the player stats, with different colours showing
    the differences in skill. The Player Comparison option also tells you
    who is better in each position.

    Searching for Players
    =====================
    There are two ways you can look for players, by going through
    tonnes of information i.e. trawling through Teams/Nations; or
    the easy way - use the Player Search & Scouts. These can be found
    in the main menu, by clicking on your name.
    
    Player Search
    =============
    From here you can search from all the players in your region,
    and all reputable players. You can also use the Filter to
    block out players you don't want(i.e foreign players, expensive
    players, goalkeepers, whatever...), or look for players with
    certain stats(e.g. Tackling 20, Dribbling 15, etc.). Once
    you've filtered out all unwanted players, you can click on
    the the names of the players to see their info. If you
    want to buy/loan a player, click Action in the corner of
    the screen, then click on your preferred action.
    You can also search for text, such as player name or
    nationality. You can also get your Assistant Manager to
    filter out unrealistic targets, so as not to get Raul in
    every search.
    
    Scouting
    ========
    You can assign your scouts certain tasks, so they find the correct
    players for you. You can select to scout a team, a country, a region,
    a competition, or to scout your next opposition. After the scout has
    completed his task, you will be presented with the list of players he
    has found. Then you select the new "John O'Shea".
    
    Bidding for a Player
    ====================
    When you've found the player you want, and clicked "Bid", you will
    have to compose your bid. On this screen you will find the player's
    current valuation, as well as other options. If the player is on
    the Transfer List, just bid his valuation and it will be accepted,
    but if not, you will have to make a bid higher than the valuation.
    You can pay in instalments, add a sell-on clause, or pay a fee
    after a certain number of appearances. See the manual for more info.
    
    Offering a Contract
    ===================
    When the club accepts the offer, you will be given the option of
    offering a contract. Firstly, you will have to select the player's
    Squad Status. Only give the greatest players "Indispensable" or
    you will be regretting it later. If the player doesn't want the
    status you've offered him, he will say so on the wages screen,
    and you'll have to give him more money to entice him to come.
    On the wages screen, you can select how much the player gets paid,
    his signing-on fee, his contract length, and any clauses and bonuses.
    NOTE: He will have to agree with the contract you offer him, or else
    he won't join your club.
    
    Loan Contract
    =============
    In CM4 you are only allowed a maximum number of loans per season, and
    a maximum simultaneously. You can choose to get a player on loan for
    up to 12 months or until the end of the season. Loaning players is
    similar to bidding for them.
    
    First Option
    ============
    You can take out a First Option on a player in CM4. This means if the
    club wish to sell the player, you have the "first option" to buy him
    i.e. you must be offered him first. Only take out these on players
    you really want to buy, because they can cost alot of money.
    
    Enquiry
    =======
    Want to know how much a team want for a player, enquire about it!
    You will then be given a value which you can choose to accept, and
    bid.

    Basic Tactics
    =============
    The default Tactic is 4-4-2, but CM4 offers more pre-made tactics than ever
    before. This are easily accessed through the Quick Load option on the menu
    at the top left of the tactics screen. Choose which ever one suits your 
    players. In other words, build your tactic around your team, not vice-versa.
    You can only work with the players you have. If you are on the verge of
    buying new players, then you can work it the other way around, and pick
    the tactic first.
    
    Making your own Tactic
    ======================
    Use the pitch to the right to move players around by dragging them using the
    left mouse button. If you want the players to make runs, drag them with the
    right mouse button. The Game Manual explains how to your own tactics and
    which options to use. (pp 55-61)
    But I will also list the Team and Player Instructions options more in-depth.
    
    Passing Style
    =============
    Short:       The players will use short passes more often than long passes.
                 For this to work effectively all your players will need
                 reasonable Passing and Off the Ball stats. High Decisions stats
                 are also quite helpful.
    Direct:      The players will pass the ball to the feet of other players in
                 order to get the ball into the box quicker. Reasonable Passing 
                 and Creativity stats are needed for this to work.
    Long:        The players will boot the ball up the field and hope for the
                 forwards to get on the end of it. Use this if you have
                 speedy forwards with good Off the Ball stats, or if you are
                 playing extrememly tough opposition in order to keep the ball
                 away from your goal. Heading and Anticipation are helpful.
    Mixed:       This is a combination of all the passing styles, and is the
                 default style. Sometimes short, quick passes will be played,
                 and long balls will be played at other times. Your players
                 will decide when to play short or long, so high Decision making
                 is a valuable attribute.
    
    Focus Passing
    =============
    Down Both Flanks:   Your players will pass the ball down both the right and 
                        left wings rather than play a ball through the middle. 
                        Neither side is valued more than the other. For this to 
                        work you will need a safety scissors, only joking, 
                        you'll need two talented, speedy, creative wingers.
    Down Left Flank:    Your players will pass the ball down the left wing rather
                        than use the middle or right. This is useful if your Left
                        Winger is very talented, whereas your right one is not.
    Down Right Flank:   The direct opposite to the Down Left Flank option. The
                        players will pass it to the right-hand side winger rather
                        than play through the middle or down the left.
    Through the Middle: Your players will use the central midfielders to 
                        distribute the ball rather than use the wingers. Your
                        central midfielders will need to have high passing stats
                        for this to work.
    Mixed:              A combination of all the above, there will be no bias
                        where the ball will be passed to. The players themselves
                        will choose the correct course of action (if they're
                        good enough, that is).
    
    Tackling
    ========
    Easy:   Your players will be more cautious when going for the ball, they will
            often pull out of 50-50 challenges. Only use this in friendly matches
            when you don't want your players injured, or set as a Player Option
            if your star player is one yellow away from missing the Cup Final.
    Hard:   Your players will almost always challenge for the ball, they will
            be more inclined to go for risky tackles and get booked. I use this
            setting all the time, a few bookings never harmed anyone!
    Normal: Under this etting, the players themselves will decide whether to go
            in for challenges (risky or not). Players like Roy Keane will still
            go in with Hard Challenges, but less determined players wont.
    
    Closing Down
    ============
    Own Half:   Your players will only close down opposition players in your own
                half. Some players may close down in the other half, but not all.
                This will not leave you as exposed if you make a mistake as
                Closing Down: Always will.
    Always:     Your players will always close down the opposition to get the
                ball. This can leave you exposed at the back and open to
                a counter attack. But on the plus side, it also helps you start
                your own counter attacks.
    Stand Off:  Your players will stick to their positions and not close down
                opposition players on the ball.
    
    Mentality
    =========
    Ultra Defensive: Your players will not attack very often, sticking to the
                     safe options and try to keep the game at 0-0. This is
                     only recommend against top class sides or when you are
                     defending an important lead.
    Defensive:       Your players will be quite defensive, and will only
                     attack when a clear chance is on. They will also be very
                     cautious when they do attack, and try not to leave any
                     gaps at the back.
    Attacking:       Your players will go forward more, and sometimes leave
                     you wide open to the counter attack. I usually use this
                     menatlity as I feel my defenders are usually capable of
                     stopping the other team scoring.
    Gung Ho:         Your players will always try to attack and score, even
                     your defenders. This causes havoc on the CM4 Message
                     Board for foreigners who do not know English colloquialisms.
                     Now, I've caused havoc, by using the word colloquialism -
                     consult a dictionary, guys.
    Normal:          Your players will attack when the opportunity arises, but
                     will not go looking for the opportunities, or try to
                     keep out every shot. (That's why it's called "Normal")

    Technical
    =========
    Crossing:       How good the players are at getting the ball into the
                    box from wide areas. Essential for Wing backs and wide
                    midfielders.
    Dribbling:      How good the player is with the ball at his feet, and how
                    well he can get around players with it there. Players
                    who run with the ball and playmakers need this attribute.
    Finishing:      How good the player is at putting the ball in the onion
                    bag (slang for goal). This is essential for all forwards.
    Heading:        How well the player can head the ball - how accurate he is
                    at putting the ball where he wants it to go. This goes hand
                    in hand with the jumping attribute. And is essential for
                    target strikers and central defenders.
    Long Shots:     How well the player can strike the ball from Long Range.
                    Matt Holland is an excellent example of a player who
                    has great long range shooting in real life. (Yes, CM is not
                    real! SHOCK!) This is a good attribute for attacking
                    midfielders and also strikers.
    Long Throws:    How well the player can throw the ball over distance. This
                    stat is essential for the player you have selected to take
                    your throw ins.
    Marking:        How well the player can stick to opposition players. This
                    is not essential for defenders, but is essential if you
                    are playing a man-marking system. But it wouldn't be a bad
                    thing if your defenders did have it.
    Passing:        How well the player can distribute the ball to teammates.
                    This is essential if you are using short or direct passing
                    styles, and is needed by all players.
    Penalty Taking: Whether the player is any good at taking Penalties. Your
                    penalty taker will need 17+ in this attribute. But note,
                    anyone can miss a penalty, isn't that right Roberto Baggio?
    Set Pieces:     How good the player is at taking corner and free kicks.
                    After a few matches you will know whether players can take
                    corners or frees by watching the 2D match engine. Any
                    player selected to take a set piece will need this stat.
    Tackling:       How well the player can tackle. EVERY defender needs this,
                    if he can't tackle why is he a defender. Although Roberto
                    Carlos seems to be able to do it without being able to
                    tackle. All defensive midfielders will need this too.
    Technique:      How well the player can control the ball when he gets it
                    and when he has it. Players who are often in possession of
                    the ball need this stat.
    
    Mental
    ======
    Aggression:    How aggressive the player is when going in for tackles.
                   Players like Eric "Le God" Cantona are aggressive players.
                   Your defenders and defensive midfielders will need to be
                   somewhat aggressive.
    Anticipation:  This determines whether the player will be able to anticpate
                   (or predict) where the ball will go when either teammate or
                   opposition have the ball. Your forwards will need this stat
                   in order to receive the ball, and your defenders need it
                   to cut out passes.
    Bravery:       Whether the player will go in for difficult challenges.
                   Players with high bravery are likely to win more challenges.
                   Defenders need to be reasonable in this stat.
    Creativity:    How good the player is at creating openings and making chances.
                   Creative players are the players who can turn a game. Much like
                   Damien Duff. Attacking midfielders and playmakers need this 
                   stat.
    Decisions:     How well the player can make decisions quickly, on and off the
                   ball. Central midfielders need to have good decisions ratings
                   in order to create openings.
    Determination: How determined the player is - will he do anything to win?
                   Players with high determination will never give up, even if
                   they are on the losing side. Your captain will need high
                   determination, as he is an inspiration to the other players.
    Flair:         How good the player is at doing the unexpected. I think I
                   mentioned Damien Duff already. Sometimes these players can
                   over-elaborate though, but their incredible play otherwise
                   will more than make up for it.
    Influence:     Whether the player influences the other players. The higher
                   this attribute is the more respect the players will have
                   for that player. Essential for captains.
    Off the Ball:  How well the player moves off the ball - i.e. gets into
                   good positions. Your attacking players and forwards will
                   need good Off the Ball statistics.
    Positioning:   This is similar to Off the Ball but applies to defenders
                   instead. It also is required if you wish to play the
                   offside trap. Defenders will need this stat, especially
                   with Zonal marking or the offside trap.
    Teamwork:      How well a player works with his teammates. These players
                   can also encourage the other players on your team to play
                   better. All players need to have good team work stats in
                   order to play as a unit.
    Work Rate:     How hard the player works. This goes hand in hand with
                   the Teamwork attribute. All players will need this
                   stat, especially players who are order to close down
                   opponents.
    
    Physical
    ========
    Acceleration: How quickly the player reaches his top speed. This stat
                  is complimented and compliments the Pace stat. Wingers
                  and forwards will need high Acceleration.
    Agility:      How well the player can move on and off the ball.
                  Players with high agility can seem to get out of the most
                  difficult of situations.
    Balance:      How good the player is at staying upright when challenged.
                  Players with high balance will not be knocked off the ball
                  easily, whereas players with low balance can often win
                  freekicks.
    Jumping:      How good the player is at getting up in the air for headers.
                  This has to be joined by a high Heading ability to make
                  the most out of it. If a player can jump well but not head
                  the ball, what use is the jumping stat? Defenders, forwards,
                  and especially goalkeepers need good jumping.
    Pace:         How quick/speedy the player is. A great example of a Pacey
                  player would be Roberto Carlos. Wingers and forwards especially
                  need high pace. Defenders also need to be pacey to cope with
                  quick attackers.
    Stamina:      The higher this stat is, the less likely a player is to become
                  tired as the match progresses. Older players will have lower
                  stamina due to their age. Every player need to have good
                  stamina, especially players that have to run alot.
    Strength:     How strong the player is. The higher this is the more chance
                  he has of winning the ball in a 50-50 challenge. This combines
                  with Tackling and Balance. Central players will need this stat.
    
    
    Goalkeeping
    ===========
    Aerial Ability:    How good the goalkeeper is at making difficult saves
                       from high or difficult balls. This is needed to defend
                       against crosses.
    Command of Area:   How good the goalkeeper is at controlling his penalty
                       box. Goalkeepers with a high stat in this are good at
                       defending set pieces and coming out on opposing players.
    Communication:     How well the keeper works with his defenders. Goalkeepers
                       with high communication will be good at organising their
                       defence and forming walls.
    Eccentricity:      How crazy the keeper is. Fabien Barthez and JL Chilavert
                       are examples of eccentric keepers. This can be both good
                       and bad, so keepers with a stat around 10 are best.
    Handling:          How well the keeper can hold onto the ball. This is the
                       main attribute in a goalkeeper, and was the one you
                       always looked at in old CMs.
    Kicking:           How good the keeper is at goal kicks and kickouts. A
                       high kicking stat is needed if you are playing long ball.
                       If your keeper has low kicking make sure you tell him
                       to "ask defenders to collect".
    One On Ones:       How good the goalkeeper is at coming out on players through
                       on goal. The higher this stat is the less likely the 
                       forward is to score.
    Reflexes:          How good the goalkeeper is at making reflex saves - ones
                       that have to be made on the spur of the moment, due to
                       a deflection or offensive trickery.
    Rushing Out:       This is similar to the One on Ones attribute. Keepers who
                       have high Rushing Out stats will almost always come out
                       on the forward.
    Tendency To Punch: The higher this stat is the less likely the goalkeeper will
                       catch the ball. He will have a tendency to punch it away
                       instead. I try to have this stat as low as possible, but
                       some managers like it.
    Throwing:          How well the keeper can throw it out. The better this is
                       the further the keeper will be able to throw the ball
                       accurately. Look at Peter Schmeichel to see what I mean.

    Introduction
    ============
    Player Values are rouned off to the nearest 100k (for below 1m values)
    or .5m or .0m for higher values. This means a player marked 100k may be
    valued as low as 2k. The reason I did this is that player values vary 
    very much from game to game.

    Guide to schemes
    ================
    Firstly I will list the game's description for the training scheme.
    Then I will list what the training involves in each area (out of 8)
    
    Training Types
    ==============
    Some schemes are only for outfield players, some are for goalkeepers
    and others are for both. Don't give a player a training scheme which
    isn't for his position, because this can only hinder his development
    
    When to Train?
    ==============
    How much training am I to do? How much rest am I to give my players?
    Most people suggest to rest the players after match days (there is
    an option in the game to do this), give the players Sundays off, and
    Saturday afternoons. (i.e 5 rest periods a week). Some other players
    change this around and give the players rest periods each day at
    varying times. It's really up to you. At the end I have included some
    custom training schemes to help you. If you have a scheme you find
    works, tell me about it on my message board.

    5-a-side (Large Pitch)
    ======================
    Small sided games on larger pitches. Though the players will tire quicker, 
    they will build up stamina, improve their work rate and develop good 
    passing and movement.

    5-a-side (Small Pitch)
    ======================
    Small sided games on smaller pitches. Players will improve their marking, 
    movement and ability to think quickly. Outfield players are also 
    encouraged to get plenty of shots on target, enabling goalkeepers 
    to hone their reflexes and practice one-on-one situations.

    Cross Country
    =============
    Particularly effective during pre-season to get your players fit for 
    the campaign ahead, cross-country running improves stamina and encourages 
    weight loss. This exercise is claimed to have a multiplying effect on 
    other aspects of training.

    Crosses
    =======
    This exercise encourages your players to deliver lofted or driven balls 
    into the box. Your midfield players will be taught to hit the right 
    areas with their crosses and your attackers will learn to time their 
    runs to receive the ball in the best positions.

    Overloading (Attacking)
    =======================
    By outnumbering the defence in this exercise, your attackers will 
    be encouraged to make use of the extra men down the flanks and get 
    crosses into the box. Your strikers will improve their movement and 
    get used to finishing off moves.

    Overloading (Defensive)
    =======================
    By using more attackers than defenders, this exercise encourages 
    defenders to hold their defensive line and learn which parts of the 
    pitch are most vulnerable to attack. By encouraging tight marking, 
    teamwork and positional play, overloading will also improve the 
    link between your goalkeeper and his defence.

    Penalties
    =========
    Gives your players the opportunity to practise taking penalties and 
    increase their composure. This session is most useful before those 
    dreaded penalty shoot-outs in cup competitions.

    Pig In The Middle
    =================
    This moderate session involves several players passing the ball 
    amongst themselves within a set perimeter whilst one or two 
    others try to win the ball back. While creating a fun and 
    relaxed atmosphere, your players will particularly improve 
    their anticipation and first touch.

    Set Pieces (Attacking)
    ======================
    In this routine, your players will work on their attacking set 
    pieces for the big match. By training your set piece takers to 
    deliver accurate free-kicks, corners, penalties and long throws, 
    your team will improve its chances of scoring from these situations.

    Set Pieces (Defensive)
    ======================
    In this session, both your goalkeepers and outfield players will 
    practice defending the set piece scenarios that occur within a game. 
    This will improve their anticipation, marking and positioning.

    Tactical Training
    =================
    This session is tactics specific and gives the players a chance to 
    analyse the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition. This will 
    include watching videos of previous games, studying tactics and 
    identifying danger men. As a very important part of preperation 
    for both the team and the individual, players will improve their 
    ability to make decisions and work as a team.

    Technique
    =========

    passing and dribbling. Players will work mainly on skill, using all 
    parts of the body to improve first touch and control.

    Training Match
    ==============
    By playing the selected first team against a second string in a full match,
    this high intensity session will give your players a chance to play together
    but is also guaranteed to tire them out. Amongst other things, this exercise
    improves passing, communication and positioning.

    Weight Training
    ===============
    Weight training builds up muscle definition, including the hamstrings, 
    calf, upper body and neck muscles. At low intensity it can reduce a player's 
    chance of injury, but too much weight training can result in loss of balance,
    mobility and pace.

    Agility
    =======
    
    Although not fitness intensive, your players will develop a better fluid 
    motion through running, turning and shifting their body weight. This 
    exercise particularly improves acceleration, balance and coordination.

    Closing-Down Session
    ====================
    In this exercise, three small sided teams play within a set perimeter. 
    Two teams attempt to keep hold of the ball whilst the third team 
    endeavours to dispossess them. Constant movement ensures players will 
    build up their stamina and also develop their vision, communication and 
    ball skills. Positional play, tackling and team work will also be improved.

    Heading
    =======
    Heading exercises help your players to strengthen their neck muscles 
    and get distance on headers. As well as improving their ability to clear 
    the ball quickly and efficiently from dangerous situations, your players 
    will get better at flick-ons, knock-downs and scoring headers.

    Shadow Play
    ===========
    This low-pace session, best implemented only a couple of days before a 
    match, literally walks the players through what is expected of them in 
    the next match. As well as getting the players comfortable on the ball, 
    this exercise improves teamwork, decisions and movement.

    Shooting
    ========
    This exercise increases the awareness of your players in and around the 
    box and your strikers will gain confidence from hitting the net regularly 
    in training. As well as improving their touch and ability to volley, this 
    session will also encourage your players to practise shooting with their 
    weaker foot. Other benefits include increased composure, anticipation 
    and ability to shoot from distance.

    *NOTE: Also remember that when the season finishes turn 
    all your players to a pre-season training and wait about 
    10 to 7 days before the first OFFICIAL game (not a friendly) 
    to turn each player back to it's program.

    Free Players
    ============
    Make a high offer to purchase a player and make sure it is accepted.  
    When acceptance go to offer the player wages.  Now use the menu to the right
    to go to the news screen. Click on the player's name and change your bid
    to €0, and press back until you reach the contract offer screen. Offer a
    good contract with a large signing-on fee (after all you're not paying for
    the player), and hope he accepts.
    
    Super Training
    ==============
    Open the training files with Notepad. Edit all the stats to be 8 and save.
    Then train away. But make sure you give the players extra rest, as these
    schedules will be very intensive.
    
    Speed Up The Game
    =================
    (from sigames.com and cm4u.com )
    1. Load up your game. 
    2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to return to desktop.
    3. Open My Computer.
    4. Open the CM4\temp folder in your CM4 directory.
    5. Open the file in there (called something like E97846-9578549).
    6. Sort by file type then delete all the PKM files. 
       (There may be thousands of these).
    7. Close My Computer.
    8. Return to your game and save. You should notice a vast improvement in 
       save time and also when you next load the game. 
    
    Note: these PKM files are the 2d files of the games played and 
    are required if you want to watch games that you've previously played. 
    If, like me you would rather have the game work much quicker than 
    watch your defeat at hame against Rotherham, you'll lose nothing 
    by deleting these files.

    Introduction
    ============
    This section is for all questions about Blitzball. Unlike the other
    sections, it contains its own Table of Contents to help you find
    the question you're looking for. If you have a question that is not
    listed here, don't hesitate to post it on my message boards.

    Question 1
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-a
    
    Q.
    I can't install the game! It says I don't have the correct Windows Installer,
    help!
    
    A.
    On older versions of Windows i.e. ME, 98, and NT you may get this error. The
    solution to the problem is very easy. You just need to download and update
    a newer version of Windows Installer.
    Version 2 of Windows Installer can be found at this link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/
    details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=CEBBACD8-C094-4255-B702-DE3BB768148F
    (MAKE SURE YOU TAKE OUT THE SPACE IN THE MIDDLE)
    The file is around 1.6MBs and should not take too long to download even with
    a dial-up connection. (It took me 7 minutes with 56.6 when I downloaded it
    for a friend)
    
    Question 2
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-b
    
    Q.
    The game crashed and I lost XX hours of gameplay, arrrggghhhh!
    
    A.
    There is no solution to game crashes. SI Games are trying to eliminate these 
    by releasing enhancement packs (found through links on sigames.com). The only
    thing that can help is to regularly save your game so as if the game does
    crash, you wont lose as much info.
    
    Question 3
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-c
    
    Q.
    Why can't I run the game in Windowed Mode?
    
    A.
    In order to run the game in windowed mode your screen resolution must be 
    greater than 1024x768. Anything less than this and the game must play in
    Full Screen Mode.
    
    Question 4
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-d
    
    Q. 
    My save game says it's corrupt! Fuckin' SI Games are corrupt, not my game!
    Grrrrrr.
    
    A.
    There is no solution to this either. Just make backups of your gamesave
    every season or quarterly if you're that paranoid. Secondly, I'm not
    sure if they're corrupt. Why don't you ask them, email SI Games, go on.
    
    Question 5
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-e
    
    Q. 
    I'm playing on a laptop/small screen and can't see the ball in 2d Match.
    Is there any way to help me apart from going to Specsavers?
    
    A.
    There certainly is. Go to your Game\Data folder and edit a file called
    init.cfg with Notepad. To do this right click and choose Open With,
    then select Notepad. Then you need to type in "BIG_BALL" in the text
    file and save it as init.cfg 
    
    Question 6
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-f
    
    Q.
    Can I use my save from the Gold Demo/Normal Demo in the full version?
    
    A.
    Indeed you can, just copy it to the save directory. Although, some
    stats may not be the same as in the full version.
    
    Question 7
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-g
    
    Q.
    Where's Print Screen/Screenshot option gone?
    
    A.
    i don't know. They should have left it in, I loved saving my squad and stats
    to text files. Silly SI. But you can take screenshots by using the 
    Print Screen button on the keyboard to save to the clipboard. Then paste
    your screenshot into a image editor/paint program and save.
    
    Question 8
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-h
    
    Q.
    Where's the bloody editor? I want to buy me!
    
    A.
    Unfortunately there is no official editor for the game out yet. But this
    helpful site, made by a GameFAQs board member will give you links to
    some unofficial ones: http://www.cm4ever.tripod.com
    (Watch out for all the pop-up ads though)
    
    Question 9
    ==========
    Search Field: viii-i
    
    Q.
    How do I install Logo Packs?
    
    A.
    Unzip the files into the following subsection of your CM4 directory
    /graphics/pictures/clubs
    If there is no such folder, create it with "Make A New Folder"
    
    Question 10
    ===========
    Search Field: viii-j
    
    Q.
    I just scored, but it didn't count because I subbed the player. Why?
    
    A. (thanks to SI Games)
    SI Games still haven't been able to fix this bug (maybe in EP4), so here's
    what to do to make sure it doesn't happen. But it does slow down your 2d
    matches.
    
    Right click on your cm4.exe icon and check the file path to it, 
    and then change it from (this is the default path) "c:/Eidos/Cm4/cm4.exe" 
    to "c:/Eidos/Cm4/cm4.exe -safe_match"

    Introduction
    ============
    This is similar to the Frequently Asked Questions section above, but
    only deals with in-game problems. Like bad players/tactics/media etc.

    Question 1
    ==========
    Search Field: ix-a
    
    Q.
    I'm having problems putting the ball in the onion bag, what do I do?
    
    A.
    If you are not getting many chances, you need to improve your midfield and/or
    wing players. Look for players with high creativity and passing to help you
    out.
    If you can create chances, but can't put them away, then you need better
    forwards. Get some strikers with good finishing and heading.
    
    Question 2
    ==========
    Search Field: ix-b
    
    Q.
    Every game I seem to concede large amounts of goals. Why?
    
    A.
    If every shot seems to go in, you have a bad goalkeeper. Try to find one
    that has all-round goalkeeper ability. Not just high handling.
    If you're always defending, you have a poor midfield. That's right, it's
    not a bad defence, it just means your midfield keep losing the ball. Get
    some better midfielders or change to a long-ball tactic.
    Also, your defence are causing the problem if every time the ball is
    in your half it results in a shot. Get some better defenders with good
    tackling and anticipation.
    
    Question 3
    ==========
    Search Field: ix-c
    
    Q.
    Who do I choose as captain?
    
    A.
    You need a player who has both high Influence and Determination. Roy Keane
    is a great example of this, and after all, he is Man Utd's captain. You
    may find that age also helps, as a young player with these stats may not
    be able to control your team as well as a more experienced player.
    
    Question 4
    ==========
    Search Field: ix-d
    
    Q.
    What's the difference between a forward and a striker?
    
    A. 
    Forwards can also play in attacking midfield. Here's a handy list of all
    the positions:
    POS  Name                     Suitable Players
