PCM.daily's 2009 DB V2: Released!

Update: We've now added a Self-Installer. This is especially suited for people with no technical knowledge. Just double click the file after it's been downloaded and follow the instructions. When PCM is launched, make sure to choose OfficialRelease.cdb in Options -> Database.

You don't need both the .zip and the .exe. You only need one of them - choose yourself.


It's been a month and some weeks since our first version of our 2009 DB. Back then, only very few teams had presented their new shirt, not to mention their rosters. We knew that before-hand, and we hope that you guys enjoyed playing with it to limit the 'waiting time' for the proper 2009 databases.

Either way, it's now time for the V2, bringing even more of the good stuff to you. However, there's still some teams which haven't realised that we're in 2009. Therefore, there's 25 teams in the DB which still use their 2008 jersey. However, as we're adding these to the V3 of the DB whenever they are released, we'll make sure to post them at the forum too with the correct filenames, so you can easily implent them to your game without having to restart. That's a promise from us :)

So, what does the V2 include? We've previously presented the final team list and a list of new races. To that list, you can add the Spanish race Volta da Ascension. Other than that, there's no changes. So, let's go to the specifics!

it won't work Sad i downloaded the latest version of flashget, but what do i do with it now?

originally when i clicked on download the default programme to open it with was WinAce Archiver v2.69 however when i clicked on ok i had some WinAce problem page come up in German so i have no idea what it says.

i changed the settings to open it with FlashGet but the same thing happened. What do i have to do?
#6 | CrueTrue on 06. February 2009 09:02
Open it with WinRAR.

Or, since it's a .zip fle, it should be possible to open it with Windows' in-built zip extration tool.
#7 | ringo182 on 06. February 2009 09:09
don't think i have it, or i can't see it anywhere. will i have to download it?

Cruetrue told last night that there was an issue with 1st download, but I downloaded it before that :S. And he told he was going to release 2 new downloads to solve that issue. I need the one for those who still downloaded the "corrupt" version. Where can I find it?

Many thanks
#10 | CrueTrue on 06. February 2009 09:17
I've sent you a PM.

If anyone else downloaded the 'bugged' version yesterday evening, please PM me.

And just to make it clear: The version currently online works.
#11 | ringo182 on 06. February 2009 09:18
many thanks crue, you are a genius.

right, i'm off for a session on the turbo, when i get back i'll prob have more questions on how to install the bloody thing:lol:
#12 | Thrige on 06. February 2009 11:13
Is it still the plan, to make an .exe file?
#13 | CrueTrue on 06. February 2009 11:38
Yes, I'm trying to make it now, but the installation maker is ... well, pretty useless Pfft

No, seriously, I'm hoping it will be up today.
#14 | alexkr00 on 06. February 2009 11:38
megaupload is a lot faster for me. thanks that you uploaded it there tooWink
#15 | CrueTrue on 06. February 2009 13:37
For information, the .exe is being uploaded now.
#16 | sneyes on 06. February 2009 14:50

#24 | CrueTrue on 08. February 2009 20:55
Fenian had warned me before-hand that if anyone asked the famous 'equipment question', he'd maybe tick off :lol:
#25 | fenian_1234 on 11. February 2009 01:13
I'm afraid Chewie's comment was the 4th time I read the question in the space of 5 minutes. Angry
