Weekly News #55

After a whole bunch of Pro Cycling Manager 2008 news it's getting more and more interesting. The beta tests are now just days away from beginning, and this traditionally means even more information. The release dates have been revealed, although not officially confirmed, and all we can do now is wait ;) The PCM.daily DB is coming up, though, and we can ensure you that it'll make the waiting time feel much shorter ;)

PCM 08 applications
As we mentioned just a few days ago, Cyanide has opened up for more (and new) beta testters for PCM08. They won't be accepting them for forever, though, so now they've set a deadline: tomorrow at 21:00 GMT +01. So, hurry up, cheat a little with your DxDiag, say how much you love Cyanide, and you're probably guaranteed a spot ;)

New teams in PCM08?
In PCM.daily's interview with Clément Pinget he said that it was unsure whether or not there would be moe teams in PCM08. However, on the official forum, sebduth, French moderator, has announced a list of teams which Cyanide need jerseys for. This list includes the following teams: Auber 93, Acqua Sapone, CCC Polsat, Ceramica Flaminia, DHL - Author, Preti Mangimi, Roubaix Lille Metropole, Team 3C-Gruppe and Designa Køkken. So, it seems very likely that these teams will be in PCM08. If you want to help out making them, go to this thread.

2008 stages
I noticed that I certainly haven't been very good at updating the download section with the released 2008 stages, so throughout this week I've been adding the some of the larger races. This includes: Paris-Nice, the new Italian classic Monte Paschi Eroica, Omloop Het Volk and Milano - Sanremo. They are made by a bunch of various stage makers including Jaap90, Bilbo Baggins, PPDB's stage maker BuddyMulligan and the Dane, Lampert. Download them from our Stages-section - also, keep in mind that the stages msde by BuddyMulligan are originally made for PCM06, but they work perfectly with PCM07.
I'll be adding more stages during the upcoming week, most of them made by BuddyMulligan.

Mini Shirts
Speaking of 2008, two different styles of mini shirts have been released. First, we have the "Miya-style" 2008 Mini Shirts. They have been given some sort of 3D-feel, and they are very unlike what we've seen before. You can learn how to make them in this topic, or you can go straight to our download section and download a pack, including mini shirts of the Pro Tour and Pro Continental Tour teams.
Or, you can consider the "Stanos Style" instead, made by the guy who's now named Camerluca, but who has previously been calling himself for Stanos Libre (which is why it's called "Stanos Style"). They are the official Pro Cycling Manager 2008 shirts, but now they are also available for PCM07. In the pack, you get all Pro Tour-teams, all Pro Continental-teams and a great bunch of Continental-teams. Go download the pack right now.

Audience / Public Packs
Tired of having all the traditional spectators at the race? Are you tired of the fact that they never really cheer for any team? Well, here's your solution. Two so-called Audience Packs have been released. The first one was released long ago and is originally made for PCM06, but it also works with PCM07. It changes the spectators so they now wear (2007) cycling jerseys  - you can download it here. PepsiLight, German graphic guy, has now updated the pack, so they wear 2007 cycling jerseys instead. Other than that, there's no noticeable difference. Go download it here.
Keep in mind, though, and this counts for both packages, that some spectators also wear older jerseys, like ONCE and Telekom.

.. and another fix for the Sattlerei DB
Our worst fear are being confirmed these days -- the Sattlerei DB may look good, but it's just not thoroughly tested. Therefore, the DB-team (mainly MichelinR) released a patch for the DB pack which corrects two game crashes, and includes a bunch of new things for the game, including more 2008 stages, the 2008 audience pack (mentioned above), more cyclist photos, etc.. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like it has helped much. 3 people has commented on the pack in our download section, and they are all reporting a crash on 2nd of April at the Settimana Lombardia.
If you want to give it a try anyway, grab it from our DL-section. Keep in mind that you also have to download the "base pack".

PCM.daily's DB and Graphic Team
Not long ago, Dankan announced that PCM.daily will form a real DB and Graphic Team (like the PPDB). We've been working on getting this team together, and I can say that we've already "hired" a few, very competent people. However, there's always room for improvement and more people as long as they are skilled enough. So, if you're interested in joining a team which will definitely set it mark on the PCM 08 DB-scene, read the original news entry. We're looking for all kind of "talents", including shirt makers, graphic designers, stage makers, etc..
We hope to hear from you! :)
