    Hey guys... the time has finally come!

    Apologies for the time it's taken to get the patch out, but here it is!

    The rar for download is basically two folders - one database folder and another for graphics. Installation instructions below.

    Fili has done all the testing due to my lack of time and a working game (all fixed now thankfully), and i'm sure he's done a great job but if anyone notices any problems just let me know and depending on the size/amount of problems i may bring out a second release.

    Massive thanks to Fili for his contribution, and to the mods (especially Alex) for their input.

    Currently only have one link for download, if anyone is willing to mirror it i would greatly appreciate it.

    Enjoy

    ** SG UNITED 2008 v1 DOWNLOAD mirror1 (FileFront) **

    ** SG UNITED 2008 v1 DOWNLOAD mirror2 (Rapidshare) **

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    - Paste the "SG United db" folder onto the 'My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\db' directory.
    - Rename the "SG United db" folder to just "SG United".****
    - Paste the "SG United graphics" folder onto the 'My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\graphics' directory (create the 'grapchics' folder if you don't already have one)
    - You have to start a new game in order to use the SGUtd database. When you do, the game will ask you what database you want to use (i.e. 8.0.0 version; 8.0.1; 8.0.2...); select the SG United one.
    - The patch was made using the 8.0.2 official SI update.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------


    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure you rename the "SG United db" folder to just "SG United". I didn't realise this actually made a difference... so my bad

    Hey, can't it be uploaded to the SG Downloadcenter?
    Anyway I might give it a go later on. Although I'm totally out of FM and don't really have the time to play lately.

    oh dear.. :p


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    - Paste the "SG United db" folder onto the 'My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\db' directory.
    - Paste the "SG United graphics" folder onto the 'My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\graphics' directory (create the 'grapchics' folder if you don't already have one)
    - Rename the "SG United db" folder to just "SG United".
    - You have to start a new game in order to use the SGUtd database. When you do, the game will ask you what database you want to use (i.e. 8.0.0 version; 8.0.1; 8.0.2...); select the SG United one.

    Guys, it's fixed! All you have to do is (besides what I said in my previous post) rename the "SG United db" folder to "SG United". It should work, gentlemen. (Y)
