Default Football Manager Handheld

Football Manager is finally making it's way from iOS to Android! It'll be out on Wednesday and needs support and feedback to get a skin to fit our tablets! If your a fan of the old Championship Manager series it's a lot like the versions from 2001 in terms of complexity. I played the original iOS release and thought it was superb.

To clarify - the game will be released on wednesday and will work fine on any device with Android 2.2 (or above) and a resolution of 480x320 (or above).

However on certain devices it won't be wholly full-screen, that is it'll centralize the largest skin available within the devices screen (it can't stretch the user interface as it makes the text rendering look horribly blurry).

Post release we'll be listening to feedback from users and will create additional skins based upon the most popular requests from our user-base.

Hope this helps,

Marc.

The game basically stays in the middle of the screen leaving large black border around all sides.

Deffo could use a skin to expand out onto the screen.

This game is awesome !

I did the first 3 challenges (save the club from relegation, finish the season with most of the player being hurt, and finish the season with many player unhappy) Great great game !

I hope that further updates will includes some new scenarii... i've to admit those first 3 were pretty easy using Man City due to the amount of International player they have.

I'll give it another try with another club to make it more difficult.

Just to let you know there will be a skin for HD Tablets (and all being well larger phone resolutions) available in the first update for the game.

I haven't set a firm release date for the update yet - but I've started a thread showing whats in it and some rough plans about it on the sigames.com forums if anyone wants more information about it.

Hope this helps,
