    1. Try here: http://www71.zippyshare.com/v/77256156/file.html

      It's the orange box on the right that says "Download Now" -
      not the green one or any of the other links that say download.

      If that doesn't work your antivirus may be blocking downloads from Zippyshare. Try holding "Ctrl" as you click the link.

    1. 3 things to check:

      1) Is your main hard drive named "C:"? If it isn't, it might be "E:" or "F:" or some other letter - replace the "C" with the correct later. If you click on Computer on your start menu, you should see OS (C:) as the top left drive, or another letter instead of "C" this needs to be the drive where you create the "oldgames" folder.

      2) Double click on the main hard drive (should be the OS C:) if you can't see the "oldgames" folder then redo that step.

      3) Check that there is no extra folder called CM9798 inside the CM9798 folder: it should look flow like c:\ > oldgames > cm9798 > the files where "launch" is located. If you encounter 2 folders in a row called cm9798 cut the first one out.

      Hope this helps.

    1. You downloaded the game with the files already installed so you should be able the run it now. Try: mount c c:\oldgames\cm9798 - then enter - then type "launch"

  7. Awsome job!! Really super impressive! Super oldie game,by the way. As a new Rotr fan, i didn't knew that Roy Race was on free transfer....Just lost it for an club in Spain...What a mighty player at 37.....
    Please, bear in mind that this is not an critic, ok? But, in what basis you create/distribute the clubs in the divisions?? I find on the web something about an fictional The LUNA Premiership, and they are 22 teams and allmost of there teams are not in your Premier Division.

    What can we expect in future updates??

    Keep the awesome work!! Two Thumps up!!

  8. The Luna Premiership teams replaced the traditional teams, they were in the monthly comic. These teams were copies of the real Premier League teams of the time, with similar kits and lookalike players. When the monthlies ceased the writers returned to the original teams. The original teams are more ROTR and have far more players and histories, so are better for the game.

    Roy goes to free transfer because he is the player-,manager, so if you choose to manage Melchester Rovers he is released.

    I decided the divisions of the teams using my database. Some teams are mentioned only once in the history of the comic, when Rovers draw a lower division team in the cup. So I just put them in a "best fit" league structure.

    I will try and do an update, I've improved my database massively since I did this version. Probably in time for the new season.
