Weekly News #5
NewsHello and welcome to the 5th edition of the Weekly News - and this time we do actually have something to report about ;)

Cyclocross Manager to be released today
After a week's waiting and still no DB, the team decided to set a new release date: Today, the 14th of January 2007 23:59. With two passed deadlines, we can't be sure, of course, but we can always hope...

New 2007 database
As mentioned on our forum, a new 2007 DB was released yesterday by a German group of DB-makers - but don't worry, Ullrich is not overrated like he is in other German databases - he's not even in the database.
The team has focused on realism, and since Jan Ullrich doesn't have a license he has simply been removed. Other features are of course updated teams with transfers updated up until the 1st of January 2007.

The database, RSM News DB 2007, can be downloaded from our Downloads -> Database-section.

Benelux DB - update for PCM Spain's DB
A new unofficial update for the PCM Spain-DB has been released. It updates to original 2006 DB to a 2007-DB, meaning that the teams now have been updated with the transfers they've made. Also, a couple of new teams has been introduced, primarily teams from the Benelux-area. However, it does also contain teams from other countries, f.e. Hamilton's new team, Tinkof from Italy.

Remember that the DB is unofficial (meaning that it's made by one outside the PCM Spain-team), and that you need the original two packs to use this one. All three can be downloaded from our Downloads -> Database-section.

Expected down time?
I was told by my host that the site's SQL-server might could be down during this weekend, but since I haven't experienced anything at all it's either delayed - or I've been lucky.
If any other has experienced down time, we're sorry ;)
PCMSave released

Today, a new Save Game Editor has been released by Davy Depuydt, called "PCMSave". In functionality, it can do pretty much the same as the save game editor released by Jape (more info on that release can be found here: http://www.pcmdaily.com/news.php?readmore=4), but this editor can also edit other teams than the one you're controlling.

For those who don't know much about save game editors: With a save game editor you won't need converters anymore. By simple steps you can edit your save game, f.e. the riders' race programs, their moral, the sponsors' objectives, etc..

It doesn't have as many features as Jape's Save Game Editor, but it can edit the most important aspects of the save game - and unlike Jape's, it can - as said - edit the entire database and not just the team you're controlling.

You can find it in the Downloads-section, or by clicking here: http://www.pcmdaily.com/downloads.php?cat_id=11&download_id=101

[EDIT] A bug with the team objectives has now been fixed. People who downloaded the file before 21:57 have to download the file again.

Weekly News #4
NewsHello again - and once again, happy new year. Basically, this week has been pretty calm, not just on this site, but on the entire PCM-scene. Not much releases or new projects, but we do, however, still have some news for you :)

Two new graphical downloads
So, when you've released everything possible for the "playing people", what do you do? You concentrate on other groups, f.e. the stage makers or the database makers. In your downloads / graphical section you can now find these two downloads: "Isolated Buildings Pack" and the "Caisse D' Epargne Face Pack". The first one is made for stage makers and contains a whole lot buildings, made to be implented in your stages.
The Caisse-face pack is a pack of faces which can be implented in to new databases - however, as the name states, it currently only consists of faces from Caisse 'd Epargne. The creator, EintractFan, is already working on new teams, though.

Minor site updates
If you open up the Article-section, you'll see that we've changed the design a little. Personally, I like it better, but if you've any comments - positive or negative - please use the forum :)

We've also added a new PCM community - it's the PCMNorge.com-site which now can be found in our Links-section.

No new databases
Although we had expected to present a new database this week, a post at the Cyanide forum stopped our hopes. The release of the much-debated Cyclocross Manager 2006-pack has been delayed because of unforeseen bugs.
We're also still waiting for the PPDB which still doesn't have a release date - and probably never will have. However, the first version is supposed to be released this month.

We'll keep you updated on both projects.

Last day of our competition
Today and tomorrow are the last days to enter our banner competition. Read more by clicking here: http://www.pcmdaily.com/news.php?readmore=9


That was it for today. As said, not much has happened the past week, but hopefully the upcoming week will be busy with a release of the Cyclocross Manager 2006-pack - and maybe even a first release of the PPDB-project.
Weekly News #3
NewsHello again - it's been a while since we've last updated you with the Weekly News, but now we're back from holidays - Christmas and New Year-celebration is over - and ready to give you your daily dosis of PCM news! ;)

Happy New Year!
Welcome to the year of 2007 - the year which will bring you two Pro Cycling Manager-titles for the first time ever. Both titles, the PSP-version and the PC-version, will probably be released around June/July.

Therefore, we'll also be very busy this year with updating you on the latest Pro Cycling Manager-news.
So, again, Happy New Year! :)

New article published
First of all, we've published a new article written by crew member Alex134. The guide helps you through the grand tours, and tells you how you end up being a succesful team manager throughout the grand tours - for example by winning stages and the jerseys.
The article can be found in the "Guides"-section.

1.1 version of the Save Game Editor released
A new version of the popular Save Game Editor by Jape has been released. It's not revolutionary, but it fixes a small problem with editing contracts. If you didn't have any problems, you can spare yourself the download.
For those who had the problem, download the new version here: http://www.pcmdaily.com/downloads.php?cat_id=11&download_id=98

PPDB with new ideas
PPDB had set "Around Christmas" as the possible release date for their first PCM2 DB release, but since we're now past that date, a new date has been set - 13th of January as the earliest, meaning that it will definately NOT be released before that date - also, it may not be released on the 13th of January. For the fans - us - we can only hope for a release soon.

There's no doubt, though, that it's really worth waiting for. A new, never tried before-idea has just been revealed. PlakkerNL and the rest of the PPDB-team will change the "Super-Prestige"-ranking into a national ranking, meaning that the DB will be released in many different versions, depending on the nation. For example, a Dutch version will be released which - in addition to the Pro Tour rankings - will have the official Dutch ranking, Topcompetitie.
The new idea is still only on the drawing board, but it's likely that it'll be implented in the database.

The DB will contain around 120 teams, more than 300 new stages and a countless number of cyclists.

Cyclocross Manager 2006 - new release date
As with the PPDB-project, many are awaiting the innovating project Cyclocross Manager 2006 which completely transforms your road biking game, Pro Cycling Manager, into a new Cyclocross Manager-game. Basically, the upcoming Cyclocross-pack contains new road textures which makes the roads look dirty and "cyclocross"-alike. In addition to that, it contains new stages which are true to the real cyclocross stages, a DB with the real riders and teams.
It really looks promising, and we will of course update you when it's released. Originally, it was supposed to be released around New Years Eve, but it has now been delayed to this week, the first week of January.

Danish Championships?
As we reported in the Weekly News #2, the Danish Championships are currently under way - but the past 1½ week the site which are in charge of the championships has been down. Today, it saw the light again, but without any content at all.
Therefore, the Danish Championships are pretty much impossible to report about this week ;)

Stage Creation Contest 2006
On the 5h of December we reported about the yearly Stage Creation Contest which - if you're really good - can end up with a spot in the official stage creation team. Today, it's the last day to send in your best stage creation.

Andy Schleck will have his breakthrough in 2007
According to our user base, CSC-rider Andy Schleck will have his major breakthrough this year. With 32 % of the votes, he won the first place in front of T-Mobile rider Linus Gerdemann who won 26 % of the votes, and Igor Anton (17%) from Euskaltel.

Last year, Andy Schleck's brother, Frank Schleck had his breakthrough, so if Andy has about the same talent as Frank, it's definately possible that he'll once become a great rider.
In 2006 he showed his talent by winning the 3rd and 5th stage of Sachsen Tour and by winning the climber's jersey in the Tour of Britain.

Linus Gerdemann has also definately showed his talent by winning the 7th stage of Tour de Suisse in 2005. Last year, 2006, he ended 7th in the overall classification in the same race - so he's definately worth the votes and also a guy we should keep an eye out for in 2007.

Great Manager 4
Usually, so-called forum games don't survive for too long - but "Great Manager" is now in its 4th year on the Cyanide forum, and still with a high level of activity level. You can now subscribe for the 4th season - you can read more about the game here: http://www.cyanide-studio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=50492
Banner competition

No, this is not the ultimate PCM 07-competition - and no, you won't become a millionare - but after all, there's some sort of prize at stake. After having "survived" for one month in the very tough PCM-business we're now ready to take new initiatives.

The first one is a small competetion. It's pretty simple - make a banner which you think fits the design. There're no real rules - size and colours are only limited by your imagination. If we, the crew, think your banner design was the best we'll award you with a seat in the crew.

The competetion runs to the 8th of January 2007 12:00 am (forum time). The design has to be sent to CrueTrue@hotmail.com .

Good luck and merry Christmas.
