The development process of FIFA Manager 10 is coming along nicely. Adrian Wahl (the PR-Manager at Bright Future and the Lead Database Coordinator) is here to update you with all the latest news about the game.

FIFA Manager 10 [DEVELOPER'S DIARY #2]

Hi All! This is our second Developer's Report written exclusively for our Russian players. This time it cover the aspects of the FIFA Manager 10 development.

Back to the roots

I would like to start with a feature that was removed for FIFA Manager 09, but will now return. The Automatic Substitutions feature wasn’t as good as it could have been in the past and that´s why we decided to keep it out of FIFA Manager 09. But for FIFA MANAGER 10 we didn't simply re-implement it. It's now completely linked to the rest of the game and it works in every game mode (3D, Live Ticker, Instant Calculation etc.). And even more important - the rules are now also used for the AI clubs, and they really do very good substitutions now.

The second feature that will get a comeback in FIFA Manager 10 is the players' pictures on the Line-up screen. This feature was removed due performance issues but many users asked us to include this feature again and so it will be back in FIFA Manager 10. The third one is a very small feature, but also very helpful. It’s a nice overview screen after a tournament you have organized in the calendar.

New features

Of course, the most of our work goes into totally new features. Now I would like to give you an update about our latest improvements of FIFA Manager 10.  A special feature this year will become the Highlight Mode, which is now closely linked to the Live Ticker. This makes it possible to describe the events on the pitch also verbally in a lot more detail. The layout looks as if you would play textmode, but in the background the 3D-match is calculated and immediately displayed as soon as something important happens. In addition, you can watch the match in a 2D-window in the remaining time. Besides our work on the Highlight Mode, we have also implemented a simplified Stadium editor. This tool is for all players who want to extend their stadiums with just a few mouse-clicks. The seasoned FIFA Manager player will of course continue to use the 3D-editor.

A very small improvement was added to the "Transfer of the Week" screen. The players are now sorted internally by their real ratings and the "Transfer of the Week" is now really the best player. On the Player Info screen we now also display how many matches a player has to play to reach the next experience level and after how many matches an extra transfer fee must be paid to a former club of the player (if negotiated). Finally we also display the player's preferred position. To improve the look of the Text Mode our graphical department decided to include the Stadium picture as the background. The Weekly Progress screen was updated as well. We have started to extend the numbers section on the left side and so far more than 120 new variations are included.

The latest feature, which was finished some days ago, was the changing of positions for staff members. If you have two competent fitness coaches, but no useful assistant coach, you could change the position of one fitness coach to an assistant coach. This feature was often mentioned in our wish threads in the FIFA Manager series official Forum by the community. The last thing I´d like to talk about is another community wish: the pre-selection of players for the Hall of Fame. The game now checks the Database at the start point and selects a first set of players. If you´ll start a game with your favorite club, every player who played more than 200 matches for this club and is playing for another club now will be shown in the Hall of Fame. Right now we are working on the Scouting section, which includes about 10 nice little improvements compared to the last year.

The Editor

The editor for FIFA Manager 10 is already finished and we implemented an enormous list of new features. The first mission was to improve the level of quality in our Database. Since FIFA Manager 08 the Editor includes a useful feature called "Database Problem Tool". This tool helps to indicate mistakes in our database. There are three categories of notifications:

  • Errors – these are really must fixes;
  • Warnings – this is probably a bug, but not in any case;
  • Info – this looks a bit strange, but might be correct.

We added nineteen new checks that are split into the categories below:

  • Check for empty bonus payments;
  • Check for empty stadium names;
  • Check for missing relegation rules;
  • Check for missing season tickets;
  • Check for equal generic badges in one league;
  • Check for too many identical generic badges in one league (more than 30%);
  • Check for existing double players with the same date of birth;
  • Check for players with higher ratings on other positions than the first position;
  • Check for longitude and latitude of a club’s stadium to be zero;
  • Check for missing player type (GK not included);
  • Check for Basque Players who are neither Spanish nor French;
  • Check for players whose selected strong foot doesn’t fit to the selected first position (e.g. a LM with R/L 5/2);
  • Check for "SW, ANC, LWB, RWB" being the first position;
  • Check for African face with non black hair;
  • Check for outfield players with GK attributes higher than 30;
  • Check for goalkeepers with outfield player attributes higher than 30;
  • Check for unrealistic combinations of player type and position;
  • Check for unrealistic combinations of connected skills like Dribbling and Technique (maximum difference 15 rating points);
  • Check for players who do not have one foot rated at level 5. Every single player in the database should have at least one 5 foot rated at level 5 (146 players didn´t have until now).

Beyond that we implemented two wishes of our International community. It is now possible to change whole teams with one mouse click by -10%, -5%, -2%, +2%, +5% and +10%. In addition, we now keep the Tab if the user changes the club. This is really helpful to edit, e.g. all staff members of a league. It's just one mouse click to change the club and then you can continue to edit. To increase the level of authenticity we now also show the XXL-players' pictures in the player settings, as well the stadium picture and the city picture in the club settings.

In addition we have optimized the generation of new players. The pre-generated rating now depends on the average rating of a player in this league. The generator also takes into account all the new rules for similar skills etc. Generated players are therefore now far more realistic. This should help our fansites to improve the quality of their patches and should also save them a lot of time.

Players' Pictures

The players' pictures are one of our most important features to be as authentic as even possible. We have already completed more than 500 new ones. After the summer break we´ll get lots of photo calls with fantastic players's pictures for all main leagues. With FIFA Manager 09 we implemented XXL-players' pictures for the first time and we already increased the number of XXL-pictures with the help of our updates to a huge number. For FIFA Manager 10 we will further increase this. I have a list of XXL-players' pictures for you, which we are currently preparing for FIFA Manager 10 (the fansites can therefore focus on other players):

Aboutreika, Freddy Adu, Daniel Agger, Ismail Aissati, Sami Allagui, Dean Ashton, Ryan Babel, Gareth Bale, Mario Balotelli, Hakan Balta, Ismael Bangoura, Diego Benaglio, Yossi Benayoun, Darren Bent, David Bentley, Manuele Blasi, Valeri Bojinov, Tim Borowski, Bosingwa, Mbark Boussoufa, Esteban Cambiasso, Jamie Carragher, Antonio Cassano , Giorgio Chiellini, Yassine Chikhaoui, Gael Clichy, Vedran Corluka, Danny, Nigel de Jong, Fabian Delph, Mahamadou Diarra, Dariusz Dudka, Dudu Cearense, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Dennis Eilhoff, Emre, Emre Gungor, Patrice Evra, Figo, Mathieu Flamini, Sebastien Frey, Arne Friedrich, Gabi Milito, Fernando Gago, William Gallas, Luciano Galletti, Ryan Giggs, Shay Given, Gökdeniz, Yoan Gouffran, Jose Guardado, Guti, Samir Handanovic, Joe Hart, Gabriel Heinze, John Heitinga, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Hulk, Gökhan Inler, Stephen Ireland, Jermaine Jones, Milan Jovanovic, Juan, Gojko Kacar, Chris Katongo, Konstantinos Katsouranis, Rüdiger Kauf, Kazim Kazim, Sebastian Kehl, Sami Khedira, Vincent Kompany, Niko Kranjcar, Radim Kucera, Michel Lamey, Danko Lazovic, Cristian Ledesma, Christoph Leitgeb, Joleon Lescott, Llorente, Lucho Gonzales, Diego Lugano, Federico Macheda, Ludovic Magnin, Jean Makoun, Michael Mancienne, Manuel Fernandes, Marcelo, Marchena, Marquez, Rio Mavuba, Aiden McGeady, Mehmet Topal, Christoph Metzelder, Philippe Mexes, Mido, Sulley Muntari, Charles N´Zogbia, Patrick Ochs, Wilson Palacios, Pique, Emanuel Pogatetz, Ivan Rakitic, Jose Reina, Ricardo Carvalho, Jon-Arne Riise, Juan Riquelme, Simon Rolfes, David Rozehnal, Rüstü Recber, Sabri Sarioglu, Bacary Sagna, Walter Samuel, Davide Santon, Clerence Seedorf, Philippe Senderos, Senna, Sergi Busquets, Servet Cetin, Stephane Sessegnon, Jonjo Shelvey, Simao, Mohamed Sissoko, Dario Srna, Dejan Stankovic, Marco Streller, Humberto Suazo, Vaclav Sverkos, Taye Taiwo, Serdar Tasci, Robert Tesche, Jeremy Toulalan, Kolo Toure, Christian Träsch, Piotr Trochowski, Anatoliy Timoschuk, Ugur Boral, Mark van Bommel, Nemanja Vidic, Patrik Vieira, Volkan Demirel, Danny Welbeck, Heiko Westermann, Tim Wiese, Axel Witsel, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Xabi Alonso, Ashley Young, Gianluca Zambrotta, Javier Zanetti, Karim Ziani.
