Just for everyone's information, there was a timer bug in the earlier 4.1.4 release, it has been fixed and now you can redownload a new version of the patch.

Yes there was a timer bug in the first version, therefore I have now updated the URL so it includes the timerfix. :)

Now there's still a major bug in the patch! :mad:
History us usually messed up after a while :groan: :yuck:
Do you mean match history? Thats strange, because I have not experienced it. There are still some minor errors/bugs left in the game though. People are especially complaining on oppositions keepers always getting ratings of 8+ and saving almost everything.

But I wouldn't call this a bug, its more about the tactic you use, but I have experienced it before, and it is annoying.

No I meant the players history...Let's hope I doesn't hit anyone here because if it does you can start a new game! :(

Well I have not experienced that neither, and hopefully I won't because I agree when you say that its then best to start a new game, because it would be really annoying to see players histories messed up.

Stinkfist, the first patch had a timer bug, which displayed only one digit on full hour. It displayed 14:0 instead of 14:00. This is offcourse not a major bug, and really doesnt make any difference.

But SI had to make a new patch with the fix, therefore timerfix. If you have this bug, you can also download the seperate timerfix file (CM03/04.exe), if you have already installed 4.1.4.

I've been reading on the SI forums and it seems that most people are happy with this patch as it addresses the most important issue which is the engine, pretty well. Many have commented that the matches and results are more realistic. Of course there are also those few party poopers who always find tiny bits and blow them up to huge proportions. Overall the patch seems is very good. I believe it is also the last patch for this particular CM.

Ok thanks.

And another question, which I'm sure has been asked when the earlier versions of that patch were released:

Is it save-game compatible? Or do I have to start a new game like we used to do with CM 01/02 and earlier versions?

Anyways I just got 4.1.4 on CD (I had to ask a friend with cable internet and a CD writer to do me a favor) and just installed it now.

I'm kickin ass w/ Tottenham hotspurz! :tongue:

even though it is save compatabile, all that means is that yes you can use it on your save game, but its not perfect.

When you add these patches, the history gets messed up.

If you want everything to be perfect, you have to really start again.

Thats sounds bad, but I have still not experienced it though. I had a game already running, that was created in version 4.1.3. I updated to the 4.1.4, but didn't create a new game, and I have not experienced any bugs.

The only problem I have noticed (and that was there before I updated to 4.1.4), is that if I check who has scored most league goals for Sampdoria (of the current players) then it will show Yanagisawa (82 goals). But he scored only two goals for the club, before he moved on to Antlers.

It isn't that big of a problem though, as Flachi (80 goals) will soon take over that record anyway. ;)

Today my player histories and fixtures fuked up. In fixtures you couldnt watch or see match reports of previous matches....you could only see the scores but not the scorers

For the histories, all the clubs histories were gone...you could only see the history for the current season. For the players you could only see them for the current season too, and any transfers that were made during the year were valued to 0.

Thank god that i had saved the game in another file, which meant that I used the other file adn the prob was gone. So I advise anyone to everytime save a game in 2 different files, as the game after a season or two could **** up and as some of you said, without fixtures and histories the game is basically useless.
