Weekly News #44

After yet another disappointment for me as a Dane (Mikkel Kessler's fight against Calzaghe yesterday), I'm now trying to recover. And this is one of my recover-methods :P

More new backgrounds for your game

It's been a while since we last saw a new background for PCM07, but it now seems like the graphic artists finally woke up again - or, at least TCharly did. Two of his backgrounds have been added to our download section. The first of them is the "Bettini - Evans - Cancellara"-background which shows pictures of the three superstars. The three of them are all riding in their special jerseys, the RR World Championship-jersey, the Pro Tour-jersey and the TT World Championship-jersey. It looks really good except for the fact that the Italian flag used as a background for Bettini is not the correct one ;)
An even more popular background is the "General Cycling"-background. Basically, it's showing all the riders who have been interesting throughout the 2007 season. Cancellara is there, Cavendish is there, Contador, etc., etc. It does look really good, so go ahead and give it a try.
And today, I added one more. It's made by Evans89 (formerly known as Rasmu89) and shows pictures of the CSC-captain Carlos Sastre - including some of his glorious moments, for example when he celebrated a win by sucking a dummy.

Beta versions go final
This week has also brought two new databases. In fact, we have already mentioned these databases, but at that point they were in beta phases. Now, both projects have reached the 1st final version.
The most interesting of them is the very first historical database for PCM07, the All-Time Historical DB. The DB has teams and riders from 1894 up until today, and in the pack you will also find the needed jerseys, photos and team logos - quite impressive. The final version also fixes a crash in the career mode, the riders who were added twice have had their "twin" removed, and a few more minor things. If you're interested in the history of cycling, this is a must!

The 2nd one is the Evans89 DB. His previous DB was called Rasmu89, but he has now made a new, updated one. I don't really see what's new in it, but it does include a lot of stuff. It's also the largest DB ever released to PCM -- 658 MB! One of the reasons is that it includes a lot of sound files. The French commentary has been changed a lot, new music has been added and new sound effects have been included too. Next to that, you get a lot of Miya's updates, photos for all riders, a new font and much, much more. I don't know if it's any good, but you're more than welcome to give it a try ;)

Pro Cycling for PSP review
Our member, ChrisSteelAteMyHamster, has submitted his review of the PSP-game Pro Cycling which is also made by Cyanide. It's very well-written and also, surprisingly, very positive towards the game, saying that it's a "hidden gem". You can read it right here.
As mentioned last week, everyone can submit their own articles. In the left menu, there's a link saying "Submit article" which can be used by the members. If your article is good and relevant, it will of course be added :)

PPDB releases final version
PCM06 is far from being dead, and that's mainly thanks to the PPDB team which is releasing databases for the game. This week, they released the final patch for their 2007-database. In the new patch, you find a totally new scouting system, new team objectives, new graphics, real life travel expenses, four new teams and much, much more. You can read more about it and download it from PPDB's new portal website.
This also means that PPDB will now concentrate on their two other projects: the 1980 DB and the 2008 DB, both for PCM06.

My game no longer starts. It crashes on startup. I even uninstalled it/ reinstalled it/ redownloaded and installed PPDB v4/ downloaded PPDB v6 and installed that and It crashes.
