The first PCM 07/08 screenshots
Other GamesCyanide has made the first screenshots of Pro Cycling Manager 07/08 available. And actually, it seems like the graphic hasn't changed much, meaning that people who were able to run PCM 06 probably also will be able to run the upcoming game.

In general, they don't reveil much. The menus to control the riders are not visible, and there are no screenshots of the in-game menus which - according to what we know at this point - have been changed a lot.

Check them out at the official website: http://www.cycling-manager.com/pcm2007/images/

Other Games

I have now returned from Berlin - and that's with good news. More information about the upcoming Pro Cycling Manager has been released.

At 4U2Play they have listed up a few features which have not been mentioned before. The site is in German, but as far as I understand it says that all teams are now officially licensed. The previous years several teams have been unlicensed, but that will change this year.
The feature list also includes what was said in our interview with Clément Pinget - pre race tactics will be possible and the management part will be better.

It's also said the new game will have better graphics, better AI (riders will have goals for each stage), better menu system with a totally new shortcut menu, more races (200 stages, 400 race days) and even a possibility to start your own online league.

Weekly News #19
NewsWell since CrueTrue is away in Berlin, I will become the first non-CrueTrue to post the weekly news!

World Championships - Underway at last!
The long awaited World Championships, run by Petere have finally got underway over the weekend. The 4 qualifiers for Groups A,B,C and F have been decided, while the matches for Groups D and E are yet to be completed.
The 20 qualifiers for the next round will be freshly drawn into new groups.

PCM Fantasy/Prediction League Update
The Prediction League has just passed Tirreno - Adriatico, and Igor Astarloa leads the ProTour ahead of Frank Schleck and Phillipe Gilbert. Ag2r and Liquigas are the strongest teams. The competitors have swapped positions throughout and at least half of the 11 have led at some point. The 2 ProTour races have been the crucial races so far, bringing by far the most points and this has showed with the Paris-Nice victor, Panaflex and the Tirreno-Adriatico champion, Dejacobs, battling it out for the lead. Panaflex has 1343 pts and Dejacobs has 1333.

Doddy13's ProTour Prediction League
Our real life predictions have been less succesful and so far no one has correctly guessed any correct positions. Hopefully this will change as the season progresses.

Cycling Event VLIGHT
This is a new french database that we have added this week. It is fully updated and inludes the recent transfer of Jorg Jaksche to Tinkoff. The dtabase's main focus is Stats and Photos, and you can read more about it in Panaflex' review. You can download the database here .

Speaking of Database Reviews, you seem to like them! Don't forget that you can submit your own reviews by going to the Submit Article page, and selecting Dtabase Reviews.

Stanosbase 07 V1
Stanosbase 07 V1 is a dutch contribution to the community. It includes an extensive range of new graphics, including photos, jerseys (of all kinds), new UCI-backnumbers, manager photos.
There are also new secondary sponsors, and a lot of stat corrections. The only drawback to the database is that all the race names are listed in Dutch. Click here to download the database.

Crommy's dramatic season with the Cyling 24 team continues and we will have to find out what will happen to his team following it's sponsors withdrawal.
Meanwhile, I have started a season with the american Toyota United team, which is much more enjoyable than my Red Bull season. I have even created a Background for Toyota United, which I have made available to download.

That's all we've got for this week, CrueTrue will return for next week's update and we will have to wait and see what the week will bring us.
PCM.daily's database reviews

In our on-going poll 14 of you have voted that you would like more new initiatives and more focus on the articles section. Well, we have both for you! For a few weeks, we have worked in our private room for something unseen on the PCM-community site-scene .. well, until now, that is: Database Reviews.

In our reviews we pay a lot of attention to the overall editing of the database. That could for example be having changed the "CyaTour" to "Pro Tour", the addition of new stages / new calendar, etc.. That part counts for 60 %.
Since the stats of the riders are very subjective we don't count that for just as much. Therefore, it's only 20 % of the overall grade.
The same goes for our graphic grade. After all, it is a "database", not a "pack of graphics".

To start off with we have three reviews: the Schütz DB 1.0, RSM News DB 1.3 and PCM Spain 2.2. All of them are 2007 databases which is (of course) not a coincidence. In the beginning, we will focus on 2007 databases, mainly because that's what people are most interested in at the moment. Later on, we will also rate historical database projects and some 2006 databases.

Read the reviews by clicking "Database Reviews" in the left menu. Also, if you have any suggestions, please express them in our forum :)
Weekly News #18

An amazing Paris - Roubaix has just ended, and in the aftermath of that race we present this week's news for you :)

Surprising Roubaix result proves our users wrong
Today, our Paris-Roubaix ended. Not very surprisingly, Fabian Cancellara was awarded the title as "top favorite" for the race with 36 % of the votes. On 2nd place came Tom Boonen with 28 %. But with the surprising result in real life I can only say one thing: 91 % of you were wrong. Only 9 % of you said it would be another than one of the ones listed, and with the victory of Stuart O'Grady that was the right answer ;)

Our new poll is a site poll. Since the website opened we haven't really focused much on what the users had to say. In the new poll you can give your opinion on what we, the crew, should invest more time in.

Crommy joins the crew
To help us with the above, we have managed to get Crommy into our crew. Crommy is 16 years old and from England - and for us, it's of course always great to have a native English speaker.
Crommy will help us with new initiatives and article writing which will focus on introducing the basics of cycling and PCM. We will for sure see some interesting things from him in near future.

World Championship finally to get started
This week, the groups for the World Championships were drawed. Each group has 10 players - 5 of them will proceed to the next round. The games are to be played next weekend.

France is the best represented nation with 11 players followed by Poland with 7 players (it's worth mentioning that the organizer is from Poland which explains the high number of participants from that country) and Italy with 5 participants. No players from Great Britain is represented at the official World Championship.

If you've registered the championship, remember to keep yourself updated with the Cyanide topic: http://www.cyanide-studio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51232

Futuristic database released
The 2nd futuristic database has been release The first one was the 2012 DB which we commented in the 14th edition of our Weekly News. The new one is the 2nd version of the 2009 Database and includes a new set of teams. Some of the old teams stll exist, but most teams have been replaced by new ones. For example does CSC still exist and has been reinforced with the signing of Thor Hushovd. The calendar is still pretty much the same as the original one, but you will find new races, for example the Tour of Scotland.

You can find the DB in our Historical DB-zone.

Final version of Rasmu89?
After a few more patches, Rasmu89 seems to have finally released the FINAL version of his database. The pack has ended up at an amazing 288 MB size which should include everything you will need, including photos of all riders, an amazing (and I mean amazing) amount of graphical addons.

We do not currently host the pack, but we will very soon. I promise.

That's all I have for now. I know it's not much, but you just have to live with it ;) Next week, the Weekly News will be presented by another crew member for the first time since I'm in Berlin from the 19th to the 23rd.. Take care.
