    			       Football Manager 2005
    			      How To Play Online Guide
    ===========================================================================
    Introduction
    ============
    This guide is being created to allow the players of Football Manager 2005 to
    play online against other people over the world. It has also been created as the
    guide for it, which is in the manual, is very vague and some people can't
    understand how to play so this should be a simple step-by-step guide for them to
    follow so they can enjoy a network game with their friends.
    If you find any errors in this guide please send me an email and I will update
    the guide.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Recommendation
    ==============
    To play this game online I recommend that the people who participate in the
    Game have a broadband Internet connection preferably 512K/b or greater.
    I also recommend that you have the latest patch for this game, which you
    Will find at
    Www.sigames.com or www.thedugout.net
    The latest patch is 5.0.5 and can be downloaded with a data update.
    The data update will update the database so that the latest transfers are
    In place when you start a new game.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Creating A Network Game
    ===========================================================================
    To create a network game, first you have to load up the game as normal with the
    Leagues that you and the other participants have decided to play.
    
    Once the game has loaded up you have to go into the preferences screen.
    To get to this screen click on the options bar at the top right hand of
    The screen, once you have done this click on preferences.
    
    When in the preferences screen tick the box, which says 'run as server'
    This will allow you to host the game between you and the other participants.
    Once you have done this click on the options bar again and go to
    'Game status' Screen.
    On this screen you will find the I.P address, which you will give to the
    Other people in the game.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Joining A Network Game
    ===========================================================================
    
    To join a network game, first you have to open up the game as normal.
    When you have done this click on the network icon and this will take you to
    another screen. On this screen on the bottom left hand corner there is a
    Screen, which says 'Join Other Server'.
    
    When you have done this you will be asked to input the I.P address which
    The host has given you.
    After you have done this it will bring up the screen where you are asked
    To choose your team, do this as normal then you are connected to a network
    Game.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Online Options
    ===========================================================================
    There are also a few options for online games, which the host can
    Configure.
    
    These options are Force Continue and Password.
    
    The Force Continue Option allows you to force the other players to continue
    With the game when a certain amount of the players in the game have
    Clicked continue.
    
    The Password Option does exactly what it says on the tin. It allows you to
    password the game which means only the
    People who have the password for the game will be able to join.
    
    To enable the Force Continue Option all you have to do is tick the enable
    Box.
    To get to this box go into the preferences screen.
    
    The options for Force Continue are to choose when Force Continue
    Will become active and how long the users will have to play before they
    Are forced to continue.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Online Connection Problems
    ===========================================================================
    Some users may suffer problems which may not allow them to connect to the hosts
    computer or the hosts computer may not allow anyone else to connect to the game.
    This could be down to several things the most common is probably your firewall
    not allowing players to connect through it.
    I will list step by step how to allow users to connect through a firewall, which
    is installed on Windows XP Professional
    
    1.	Go to Control Panel. You can do this by clicking Start then clicking on
    Control Panel which is on the right
    2.	When you are in Control Panel you will see Windows Firewall or Security
    Center. Click whatever one it is you see.
    3.	When in Security Center click on Windows Firewall under manage security
    settings. If you saw Windows Firewall double click it.
    4.	The window, which it brings up, will allow you to have people connect to
    your computer if you are hosting the game. Click the bar which says
    Exceptions. You can view here which programs are allow incoming
    connections to your computer. If Football Manager 2005 is here tick the
    box, which is next to it. If it is not look at step five.
    5.	Click Add Program if Football Manager isn't there and then go to C-
    \Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2005 in here click on
    FM2005 When you have chosen the FM2005 file click on Ok then Click Ok to
    apply the settings which you have changed.
    
    If this doesn't help you please look at the Forums on SiGames.com and they
    should be able to help you to solve you online problem issues.
    
    ===========================================================================
    Rules To Follow When Playing Online
    ===========================================================================
    There are a few simple rules, which you should follow when playing an online
    game.
    These rules are-
    1.	Only buy a player if you are really interested in him. Don't buy a player
    so one of the other participants can't get him then never play him.
    2.	Don't steal other users youth players. If you want one of the other
    participants youth players ask them first and if they say no don't keep
    annoying them about it or just take the player as the game host may kick
    you out of the game.
    3.	Don't have large shortlists. This is annoying if each player has a large
    shortlist it will slow the game down and will take longer to continue the
    season.
    4.	Don't cheat! Don't use FM Scout or the Mind Compression editor.
    5.	Always stick to the time that you say you will be playing at, as it is
    annoying when one person isn't online to continue the game.
