Busy with Iceland at the moment: 8/13 done.
One quick bit of added information on the problems with the Faroe Islands update.
I had an old career in the Faroe Islands with the original team.011.
I replaced the team.011 with my version.
After finishing a season the new season had no league games, only cup games....
Maybe that can help debug it.

Looking for a few fun-filled hours of football related internet?
Try finding all necessary information to update the El Salvador league :D.

Man oh man. Teams have to buy their spot in the league.
Some teams bought other teams spot, then reappear a few seasons later.
There's one team in the Primera (Firpo) who bought Juventud Independiente's spot.
So now they play in the Primera, and in the Segunda.
They were too late to register their name, so they have to use Juventud's name in
the Primera (though the strip etc. is Firpo's), and in the Segunda they use their affiliate :D.

Team information (especially away kits) is sometimes hard to find (e.g. non-existant).
Player names are even harder.

Using the Primera and Segunda Divisions I can fill the first three SWOS leagues.
I can find Wikipedia entries for 12 more teams in the different groups of the Tercera...so they are going to form the bottom league :).
Names are harder, so I might have to be....uhhh...creative......
Marino Parusco, José Playaveli, Colinha, Andibinho, or maybe a lot of dudes called Fernandez, Hernandez etc. :)

Oh, just because they have their own spot in SWOS history as being the worst team in the game...
11 Wolves will not be the worst team this time as they will play in the 2nd El Salvador League.
Did you guys know they are the oldest team in El Salvador that still plays association football?

Maybe there's an El Salvador forum somewhere where you could make friends with some  fans...?   ;D

Hehe. I know a little bit of Spanish, but only a little bit. Never heard of the LW star Higgipocchia? :P

There are Facebook pages etc, so if I really can't find stuff I might send out a few emails...in English :)

Higgipocchia? Of course! Not only a star player, but a LARGE WHITE STAR player  ;D

Just as an aside, I hope people are being more conservative with their ratings than in previous updates. Just my opinion of course, but a lot updates in the past have had way too many white star players! And average professional journeymen were all getting big yellow stars.

For example original swos has one of the greatest midfield players ever, Roy Keane (coming from a Liverpool fan!) as a big yellow star at his peak. Not many midfielders today are BETTER than Keano.

I feel small white stars should be reserved for magically special players. Big white stars only for players who could be considered the greatest of all time in their position. Messi, Ronaldo, yes. Eden Hazard? No!

@ higgi:  This is handled, through price table of EDITING RULES.

@ Rock: Don't forget Spanish wikipedia: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_Deportivo_Once_Lobos
You should be able to find what you need.  8)

Thanks all :). Biggest problem is that it's just not well documented. Some sites (e.g. wiki) haven't been updated in years.
We'll get there, and if I need anything I know where to ask :)

Bear in mind what kind of problems Mike Hammond and Serge van Hoof (original SWOS researches) must have had in 1994/5/6...
I think it's much easier for us, now! ;)
We'll make it, no doubt.

Was about to say it. I read somewhere they used to send faxes to the clubs and keep fingers crossed waiting for the answers.

Yeah it's easy to lose sight these days of just what an awesome achievement it was. Not only the logistical achievement, but back then it was just jaw dropping when you installed the game and realized what you had!

I could play (and manage!) as my local small town team from Northern Ireland! Absolutely unprecedented back then! Had the game been released 2 years later, I might have been in it!  :P

Totally true. It was and still is an awesome achievement, though I wonder how accurate e.g. the teams from the 3rd division in El Salvador actually were. It's hard enough to find the proper information these days, let alone what they must have had to do to get even close to an accurate representation!

Now I wonder which team you played for higgi. A scout came to watch me play when I was 15/16ish here in Clogland, though to this very day I haven't a clue why. The poor man must have left within the first five minutes :D :D :D :D
