Got it to work on windows 98 in PCem v17 on windows 11 pc. Very fiddly work.
Also need to install an old version of Daemon Tools v3.17 inside windows 98 to run safedisc emulation to mount iso to run the game.

Writing this 26 Dec 2021. Has anyone mangaged to download and play this game recently please? Could you explain in simple terms how you did it?

GvH 2021-08-03 0 point

I have been able to install the game (with help of Installshield 3). But i can't run it. I have also tried using UnsafeDisc, but this doesn't help.

Can someone help me? I would love to play this game again after so many years.

This game can be run on Windows 7 ? Need what configuration ?

Bastian 2021-02-14 0 point

Could someone explain step by step how you make this game work? Carefully followed instructions written on here, but I can't seem to make it work.

FIFA Fan 2021-02-04 -1 point

Never mind the other two comments I posted here today. Found a way how to do it. You can delete these three comments (including this one).

Forgot to say. In Oracle VM, it installs just fine, but then I can't run it. After seeing that "testme" doesn't start the thing, I thought that maybe I could just rename the "testme" file into the main .exe file of the game so that I can then replace the main .exe with the cracked .ex. the same way you normally do with a crack, but that still doesn't solve anything. Also, in Win 2000 VM, the only option in the 3D Options is Software Renderer, so that means I can't choose something else for 3D options even if I wanted to. Please tell me what is it that I am doing wrong.

Fifa Fan 2021-02-04 0 point

Sorry for late reply, but you guys managed to make it run? I tried to run the game in Win 10, doesn't work. Tried in Win 2000 with Oracle and cracked it the way Z-type explained, still doesn't work. In Win 2000, I first made the .img file you uploaded into an .iso file since DT versions that can run on Win 2000 don't recognize .img files. After I do that, I try to start the game and, just like the Russian Dump version, when I try running the game guess what. It kicks me back to Windows. Please someone explain to me how to make it work.

ztype 2021-01-20 1 point

The new version works. But, you need to use unSafeDisc 1.5.5 to run the main executable as the crack available on GCW is broken. Also, set the 3D setup to use software rendering.

I don't have much time right now, this is low priority

Fifa Fan 2021-01-11 0 point

Wow. You finally uploaded it. Be honest, what took you so much? I am not trying to be a total asshole here, but it took you a bit too much. Also, the reason I asked you to leave a message when you upload it was because the game could have the exact size as the previous file and I would have to download it maybe multiple times a day to see whether you have uploaded the correct game or not.

admin 2021-01-11 0 point

Now available, Fifa Fan please try it. PLFM 2002 was uploaded to us, this disk had to be dumped.

Fifa Fan 2020-12-17 0 point

The F.A. Premier League Football Manager 2001 game was indeed preserved by Russian. The game you have can be found also on ThePirateBay and was uploaded in 2007. But at least it works. However, I traced the 2001 game to another place, uploaded by another Russian, and in this second such instance, the game is corrupted and doesn't work, just like this 2000 game.

Gee, even the F.A. Premier League Football Manager 2002 that you have recently uploaded on your site, i found it couple of years ago in Russki also. But I remember that the first time I played the 2002 game of the PLFM branch within FIFA Manager (running from 1999 to 2002) was in 2009 or so and then I re-downloaded it in 2011, since in 2009 I was not really familiar with how FIFA Manager games are played. And in both times I got the game either from ThePirateBay (and has since been deleted from there) or from RapidShare or MegaUpload. And the game was in English from the start, so most likely, it wasn't a Russian who uploaded the game. Too bad RS and MU have been taken down.

Back in late 2000s I would find a ton of games on websites like RS and MU that I couldn't find anywhere else to be honest, not even on TPB. Talking about PLFM 2002, when I got the hang of how you play it, I remember I would promote a tier from the bottom tier (i.e. Conference in England, which is 5th tier) every season. Given that you start in the 2001-02 season in PLFM 2002, by the 2004-05 season in that game I would be in First Division (now called Championship in real life). Sweet memories. It was only in First Division/Championship of today, that I started facing problems with promoting even higher, like in Premier League.

Still nothing in the mailbox. Please don't discredit the Russian scene, many games have been preserved thanks to Mother Russia. You should instead complain about the UK scene :D

Fifa Fan 2020-12-16 0 point

I was just saying. I just want to be able to play the game without any problems. It's not my fault that this guy I traced the game to, who is from Russia, tried to mod the game into Russian and who knows what else he did and in doing so, he corrupted the game. Not my fault that back in the mid-2000s, when he uploaded the game, probably not so many people in Russia could speak or read English and therefore not understand what this game is all about (and believe me, when playing FIFA Manager games, you really do need to be able to read the language in which the game is written, since it is a complex game, unlike regular FIFA games, especially FIFA games of like 20 years ago, who were not that complex, and I remember that as a kid, without having that much knowledge of English myself back then, I could still get around pretty easily in the regular FIFA games of back then).

This whole global situation with this Covid-19 makes me a bit crazy too. I would just feel so good if for this Christmas (that I am advised to not spend with so many people around me since someone could transmit the Covid-19 virus to all the others), I could just get this game as a present. It would be the best thing to happen to me in these turbulent Covid-19 times.

Talking about Covid-19. You are from France right? The seller is from UK. I read that both France and UK have recently lifted their lock-down (unlike Germany), so you have no problems with getting this game pretty soon right? You are supposed to get the game these days hopefully.

So yes. My whole point is. I want to really be able to play this game, so this is why I am asking you not to modify with the game files, as in not delete any of them, or modify any of them, or add anything to them, that would make the game unplayable. So that is why I am asking to please upload the game exactly as it is on the disk.

admin 2020-12-16 0 point

Chill Fifa Fan, I'm gonna make an ISO and scan the manual, why would I change the disk content

Fifa Fan 2020-12-12 0 point

I forgot to ask admin. Is your purchase of this game affected in any way by the current lock-downs that have been in place here and there? Just post a comment here when you have posted the game, ok? Also, do not forget that you don't modify the game files in any way, ok? You post the game exactly as you received it, unless you can mod the game to make it work on Win-10 64-bits (if you have to knowledge how to do that but it is not necessary), but other than that you don't touch in any way, shape, or form the game files. I expect the game to be playable. Hopefully you get it soon.

Fifa Fan 2020-12-10 0 point

Thank you admin. Hopefully I will get to play this game after all, after I have been trying for years to do so, before Covid-19 can claim me. Not that I am infected, but who knows what can happen and eventually I become infected? Anything can happen with this Covid-19 virus apparently.

admin 2020-12-09 0 point

Did order, could not get a digital delivery. Will post results here

FIFA Fan 2020-12-08 0 point

Have you looked into my request, admin? Buy the game on E-bay and post it here please. I have tracked the original poster of this game and he's some Russian who posted a corrupt version of the game. Perhaps the game got corrupted when he tried to mod the game into Russian for fellow Russian gamers, quite a lot of years back. On E-bay it costs about 6€ and perhaps about 3€ for transportation. Please buy it and upload it instead of this corrupt crap.

FIFA fan 2020-12-04 0 point

The game is corrupted. I have a question for the admin. Can you buy the original game on ebay and upload it the way you have bought it here instead of this corrupt trash? Thanks in advance.

Setup is having a lot of ?'s. Uninstall has that too.

Someone 2020-04-26 0 point

I am the same "Someone" person who wrote on this post 3 months ago. So, just like Mike, I tried running every Win OS from the period this game was released, namely Win 98, ME and 2000. I tried installing Win 2000 in both NTFS and FAT, but nothing makes this game work. I honestly think the .exe is corrupted.

As for Xarax's comment, I am not familiar with MAC OS, and honestly I dunno if I can take his/her comment seriously though, since Wineskin Winery doesn't work with any Mac OS version later than Yosemite. Catalina is the latest one, Yosemite is from 2014.

Mike 2020-04-25 1 point

Hey! anyone got this to work ? I´ve tried several times and used different OS on the Oracle Virtual BOX

I also have the original CD, but even that wont start in Virtual box. I can install the game but it crashed when trying to start

XaraX 2020-04-11 2 points

You can play the games on Mac OS Catalina by using Wineskin Winery

Does anyone know how to run this game? I tried to install it in VM, but still won't work.

Great old game this one! Has anyone managed to install this game and play it on a 64-bit computer?

There´s no damn ISO file, and when I was installing there was no text, just a hell lot of "?", but I managed to click my way through the installation, BUT the game itself was in RUSSIAN

Not bad. This franchise was a predecessor of Total Club and FIFA Manager E.A. Sports games series.
