Weekly News #51

1 week without, 1 week with -- here's the Weekly News.

Not a week without a new 2008 database..
Two weeks ago, we mentioned two new 2008 databases which had been released to the public - and both didn't really get much / any positive response. This week, Wanka84, who's also a member of this site, released the first version of his 2008 database. Unlike other database makers, his goal wasn't to make a complete 2008 datbase with lots of graphical add-ons - he just wanted to create a small database with updated teams and riders and with the needed jerseys. And mission accomplished, it seems. For once, our demanding members did actually rate it quite well, and for my own experiences I can only say that it does its job really well.
So, there you go -- the first 2008 database worth downloading is here. You can download it by following this link.

TITAN 05 released
After about 1 year of working on the DB, T-Photon finally decided to release his TITAN 05-project for PCM2007 - although he had decided to skip the beta testing. That also meant that the first couple of days after the release was marked by people reporting several different problems, and some of them have still not been fixed.
Anyway, the project is a historical DB project based on the year of 2005. It's called "TITAN" because of its many teams (145) and riders (c. 2000). It also has new equipment, new training camps, c. 300 races and a lot more -- it's probably the largest (historical) DB released for PCM07. For the same reason, the problems were somewhat expected.
You can download the "main" file here (461 MB) and the patch here.

The DB-tool we've all been waiting for
Aab-ern, founder of PCMScandinavia.com and crew member at this site, has created a tool which we have all been waiting for without knowing it -- a 1 Click DB Changer. It's a pretty simple program which makes it possible to have several database installed at the same time without having to reinstall the game everytime you want to switch databases. It's simple and easy to use once you've understood the read me included with the program. You can download it here, and an even better version is expected to be released today or tomorrow.

More save games
Are you the kind of guy who never finishes the first season of a PCM-career? Well, here's your chance to get it done in about 5 seconds. Other PCM-players gladly spend days and weeks on their careers, and few of them then submit their save games to PCM.daily. During the past couple of weeks, we have received two new save games. The first one is a Gerolsteiner-game. Gerolsteiner had a fantastic 2007 season, winning all the three grand tours + a couple of classics. The game is based on a modified version of the PCM Spain DB, and the editing has above all resulted in the return of Ivan Basso. You can read more about it here where you can also download it.
The other new save game is a Quick Step save game - the 2nd Quickstep-based save game which we have received. In the 2007 season they managed to win the green jersey of Tour de France, a top ten spot in TdF and the Vuelta - and Boonen pretty much dominated all the classics. For the 2008-season, they have signed Contador. As with the Gerolsteiner-game, this is also based on the PCM Spain DB. Go ahead and download it right here :)

You can find previously submitted save games in the download category here, and you can submit your own save game in this thread.

Get a beautiful PCM-shirt...
As time has went by, more and more shirt makers have registered and started posting their works. Now, they are also opening up for shirt requests, meaning that you can request them to do a jersey of your wish - and it doesn't even have to exist in reality. Several teams are awaiting your orders. First of all, we have our very own Smoothie who has created several jerseys for the management game. Get to his thread by following this link. Second of all, we have the Sensational GFX-team which is a colloboration between several of the best shirt designers around. Go to their thread and request right away :) Third of all, we have a general Shirts Request-thread which is being read by all the other shirt makers we have around here (including the-sim-ereaser, Brucht, etc.) -- they tend to be a bit more busy, but once their work is done you understand why; they really do make some fantastic looking shirts. Request here.

Site updates
As I've mentioned before, I / we are always trying to improve the functionality of the site. Today I've added a forum function which will be very popular among story writers -- a so-called "float function", making it possible to adjust pictures to the right or left with text next to it. Before, you couldn't have text next to a picture. You can use the function by using the « (left-alignment) and » (right-alignment) tags. I'd like to thank PCMGeeks.dk for the idea and phpfusion.dk for the code.
Other than that, I've been working on a new Latest Threads Panel for the frontpage. The new one only shows forum posts from the Transfer-forum of the Management Game, it's collapsable and it will save your preference once you've decided if it should be closed or not. I'll make it viewable for the public once the transfer season starts.
