Fifa07b1.1 - Intro

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

When I Say press i mean tap not trap.
when i say trap i mean it.

Well.... This is my third guide in my life of guides. The first one was GBA : 
WWE Survivor Series full and final n00b Guide with movelist. But now since I 
am sick and tired of writing 'n writing I chose to write an Advanced Guide. 
Since there is already two n00b guides i chose this method besides i got admit-
ted to school on 24/6/07  on Dhaka Presidency High. After 5 years of English 
schooling on private schools life is hell on this bangla school. H-E-L-L.
Aside from this crisis of time like DC Comics i also Upgraded my AGP from ATI
Rage 128 Pro to nVIDIA GeForce 4 MX 4000 (No G*dd*mn Pixel Shader DX 8.1). So
its San Andreas, Cossax 2: Napleonic Wars, Vice City, NFS U2 Most Wanted.
All in 1 40 GB HDD with 10 Gb Songs. Although Piracy has swallowed Bangladesh
I have been a Manchester United fan for more than half of my life Iam 13 i have
beem a ManU fan fore 7 years in a Row and b4 tht Arsenal fan for 1 year. Here's
my dream team

Although i m also a cricket fan hehehehe.

This is basically a changed FAQ of FIFA 07. The Skeleton is the same. Cept the
meat has changed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fifa07b1.2 - Changes

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay... According to me.. FIFA 08 has the WORST A.I in all the games. EA tried
to make the game harder by making it more unfair. The Amateur DFCLTY is easy.
Semi-Pro same as 07 Semi Pro. Professional is another story. Harder than Legen-
dary on FIFA 07. The A.I is harder... waay harder.. Now 80% crosses are caught
by the keeper. Corners are totally different from FIFA 07. But the new and
facinating thin is the Goalkeeeper Difficulty. Surely... WC keeper makes a fool
out of you. Cant fake him, cant place a shot under his armpits. Plus the free
kick model has changed. Now even i can score with 2nd player(covered later in 
the guide)THE CONTROLS!!! OMFG i forgot they changed ze controls.(tell u later)
Another addition are the Manual Through balls and Manual Crosses (useless to
me) But some people have used it effectively. The Soundtrack sux. Longshots
are another story... Training has been added. This is a major change and a good
one too. I boosted Steven Gerrard's peak to 95 and Essien to 95(Universal)used
them both as CDMs.Summary covered later.

2> Notes on Gamepads and Joysticks
============================================================
You can use the mouse, keyboard or controller to navigate the game interface.

Once you are on the Side select screen, you must move whichever input device 
you plan to use in the game to the left or the right to select your team. 

Please note that you may have to recalibrate your controllers in Windows in or-
der to have the game detect them correctly.

To bring up the in-game pause menus, you can press the Start button (if your 
gamepad has one) or press ESC.

You can re-map your controls to customize your game experience from the Con-
trols screen in My FIFA 08. Please note that when using digital only gamepads 
you should not change the ‘Move Player’ setting to ‘Analog’ as this could 
cause undesirable effects in gameplay.

The use of a 360º-degree dual analog gamepad such as the Logitech Dual Action 
is highly recommended for full functionality. 

The following gamepads are also supported:

Gyah... They changed ze control structure....

Shoot/Conservative Tackle/Clearance = D
Sprint = E
Trigger Run/Tactics Modifier/Change Player = Q

AERIAL THROUGH PASS |
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@/
Q + W

The ball will automatically be lobbed in front of a teammate (you can't place
it).

Inaccurate in 08
@@@@@@@@\
1-2 PASS |
@@@@@@@@/

Q + S

Set up a 1-2 pass. This is the most basic attacking pass Pass Runs. 


@   = 1st Player  
#   = 2nd Player
o   = Ball
\/| = Ball Movement Not 11
_   = Player Run
P   = Pass

Note: When the other 2nd player recieves he has to pass again (Tap S)

@@@@@@@@@\
CHIP SHOT |
@@@@@@@@@/
Z + D
or
C + D (Less powerful but Accuracy is High)

The second chip shot C+D. Is accurate than the old fashioned D. I score dang
plenty of goals with the C+D combo.

Percentage Chance Of Goal : 80% 
Comments                  : Takes a lot of practice.
C+D Usage                 : Doing a header shoot with this makes a very 
                            powerful shoot.
NOTE!! 
You can use the Chip shot!!..
When on a one-on-one situation with the goalie(highly unlikely). When the goal-
ie starts his/her charge you must tap the Q+D with the slightest of touches.
might be a goal.  

@@@@@@@@@@\
Laces Shot |
@@@@@@@@@@/
Press D

Percentage Chance Of Goal : 80% (in The D-Box)
Comments                  : Chance depends on your shooter's finishing and 
                            ball control.
 
@@@@@@@@@@@@\
Finesse Shot |
@@@@@@@@@@@@/
Press Z+D for a very Angular and Accurate Shot. Unlike chip this thing is good.
Percentage Chance Of Goal : 90% (in The D-Box) 75% Outside
Comments                  : Finishing and Power is the Key.

NOTE!!!
I Have seen a few high accuracy full power(as in full meter) from outside the
D-Box.
@@@@@@@\
Tactics |
@@@@@@@/

You can find better help at the main menu.

Attacking Tactics:
Counter Attack: NumPad 8
(Check Yourself Out)

Wing Play: NumPad 6
This is one of the major attacking tactics throughout the game. Wings as in the
wingers MID: RWM, RM, LWM, LM, ; DEF: RB, LB, ; ATT: LS, RS.

In this tactic the Positions i mentioned positions themselves wider of the the
pitch. and the Centers and Attackers (CDM, CM, CAM, CF, ST) position themselves
in a horizontal line 

Box Overload: NumPad 2
(Check Yourself Out)

3rd Man Release: NumPad 4
(Check Yourself Out)

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@\
|DEFENSIVE TACTICS |
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@/

Pressing: Q + NumPad 8
(Not Done)

Offside Trap: Q + NumPad 6
The Defenders move on a straight line making a gr8 counter for Wing Play.

Zonal: Q + NumPad 2
The Defender Stay at their places and do not move untill they have been told to
(Lazy bums) and they defend 1 by 1.

Flat Back: Q + NumPad 4
(Not Done)


@@@@@@@@@@\
FREE KICKS |
@@@@@@@@@@/

RULZ!!! Use the 2nd player for the farther shots. If ur Free kick is in the 
right side of the field, choose a right footed player like Steven Gerrard,
Cristiano Ronaldo, Pirlo, etc,etc. And Press Up + Left + Tap the D. Should
be a goal. If not get the hang offit and watch EPL. 
Same with the left side field shots. Just mirror it Right = Left.
*These Banana kicks are rockers.
*2nd players can skip the wall easily.

Whilst Defending a free kick against a left footer turn ur wall towards right.
Move ur goalkeeper to the left. Switch to your wall. And keep pressing W(Jump)
The A.I will try to place the free-kick at the right side. Due to the fact that
the keeper is badly positioned. 80% of saving.

GROUNDED KICK
Press the Trigger Run/Tactics Changer Button along with the Shoot Button
this will take a grounded powerful kick.

Layoff man!
Press "C/Z" to call a 2nd PLAYER.
Press "C+S" so that the 2nd PLAYER passes the ball to the 1st PLAYER so
that 1st player get a better view of goal and can shot accurately
Press "C+D/A" to shoot with the 2nd PLAYER to confuse the goalie.
Press "Z+D/A" to shoot with the 2nd PLAYER, but before the 2nd PLAYER
shoots the 1st PLAYER will override the ball to confuse the goalie and
scatter the defensive wall

@@@@@@@@@@@@@\
Ball Slow Run |
@@@@@@@@@@@@@/
Press C and a direction to run like a.. uh.. ummm. errr.. Chicken.. yeah thats
right! Pace Control. Useful for advanced players.
@@@@@@@@@@@@@\
Ball Stopping |
@@@@@@@@@@@@@/
Trap the E button after releasing a directional key to shield the ball. I do
not find it very use though.

@@@@@@@@\
The Q+W  |
@@@@@@@@/
The Wonder Combo is Obsolete

3> Hints and Tips
_______________________________________________________________________________
Intro:
This Section has been taken from my Hints and Tips FAQ released earlier.

Game Play :->)

Formations (with comments)
The new formation making in FIFA 08 rocks. Bit like CM08 and FM 08. Go to
Main Menu > Team Management > Formations > Create A Formation
Create a Formation from the basic templates and assign it.

> Goals
Pass till attacking Midfield. Now when in Tight situations drag the ball back,
Q+S Wallpass/1-2 Pass and then get ur player up front. Barge in.

NEVER try long shots using only D. Use variations like C+D Q+D. I've once
scored (exact date 19/3/08) With Rooney on Professional. 4 Yards outside the
D-Box. I Pressed Q+D and the ball spun away from the GK. And entered.

Use the weaker foot or inaccuracy at ur advantage. Try shooting at awkward ang-
les so ur player shoots but the ball spins away or swings towards the goal.

*Note
If you're playing with 2 players(controller and keyboard or controller and con-
troller) then you might try a different formation

Effective 2 Player Formations:
I've given a few formations. It's for you to decide which to take. I cannot say
which will be best for you. Since the other formations I've given are very good
on AI(Artificial Intelligence). But these formations are the formations that I
use from time to time for best effect on my friends. You have to choose.

f your shot hits the post it
still has a chance of Goal.

Wings - The players spread out for easy crosses.(N00b tactic)

3rd Man Release - Pretty good. Use it if u like to barge through opponent defe-
nses.

Counter Attack - Zigzaggy Positiony Passes. ''


Corner Kick Goals
Totally different. Inswinging is obsolete. Use outswings Using the Shoot button
and a player should head it.

Two Player Tips
Study your rival big time. Sometimes a player becomes too solely based on one
player (e.g Lucas Podolski, Wayne Rooney) all you have to do is mark the guy.
Esc>Man Marking.

Don't mind to be a little itty bitty dirty. You never know... your next Sliding
tackle might break Ronaldinho's leg or neck. ;D

Manager Mode:-

Easy Money (all difficulties)
Every June transfer window go to the search option and search for free agents
and lotsa 2 or 3 80+ Overall players will come up some generated some real pla-
yers like Ronaldinho. I once got Jesus Navas and kept him as a trusty lap dog
and then I got Saha whom i sold fo 4.5 mil.

Careful about transfers. (All Difficulties)
Sometimes a players overall in the transfer window shows like 85, 89 or 88
but these players might even be 90 or 92.
Once I got Lionel Messi (Barcelona) who was 88 and when I bought him he was
99. !!??!!
These incorrect information are due to scouting. Because your scouts are not 
processors for some reason.

Great Players and Gems (all difficultiess)


When you have a low salary but the player has a 1 year length and he is not 
Signing. You simply loan him in the January Transfer Window. When he comes back
next season you will have a 1 or 2 year extend of his contract. Players who wi-
ll retire next year are N/A.

>Scouts
When you have attained 10 Levels of Scout I suugest you go to your office and
send him on scouting. Then, When he searches you will get a word from him abou-
t players (Not on your Pager). This will show the overall but I suggest you
check out the player's growth curve. You can check this by pressing the arrow
on his stats. Usually the player's overall is 79. To identify if the player's a
gem you'll see the player's maximum overall skill 92-97.
Heres the list The players are found within 16-20 years of age.
i'll respect to SteveP1tts who helped me find some of these.

Get the Bum guy.


RB's Can be subbed for LBs and almost all forwards can take the same POS.
Almost All CAM can Be LM, RWM, LWM, RM. One of the exception i found out are
RAMON.

Use Ronaldinho as a Striker... although the overall says -1 he plays like hell!
has a gr8 balance and accuracy... once he scored a goal which was just about to
be a Goalkick.
 

> Transfers
A few notable transfers I happen to remember.

Nicolas Anelka = Bolton > Chelsea

> Choose Wisely
When choosing to upgrade your staff I reccomend this:
1> Stadium Manager
2> Scout
3> Fitness Manager
4> Negotiating Staff
5> Striker Coach
6> Midfielder Coach
7> Defence Coach
8> Goalkeeper Coach

> Training
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! atlast. The very best thing. I used this to get Gerrard 
to 96 and Essien to 96(Universal). Try using the same training in three 
sessions like e.g 10/10/08 Strikers Strength Circuit 3 days in a row.
Tire out ur players doesnt matter. Although ur players will get injured. Like
Hamstring, Groin Strain, Hernia fer 1-5 days.

> Plan Wise
If you are going through a very gr8 big transfer I suggest you go to your 
office and check out your financial prediction and see if its OK. For Example:
You See that your end year prediction is +7,100000 and you buy Henry for
8,100000 then you will see -1000000 or more because of his 65000 salary.
If you can't understand a single thing I am saying then do this b4 your big
transfer:
Go To My Computer then go to my Documents Then go To FIFA 08 and copy and
make backup of your manager mode save.
If you make a mistake then you can replace your save file. K?

> World Class
Believe me... Semi-Pro is harder than

Listen you can just pick a portrait(All 'o 'em looks UGLAY to me) like an RPG
game(Diablo, Neverwinter Nights). Doesn.t Really matter. You wont see the 
managers ugly face on the field when you win the cup.
This is all about you, MAte.

3> Select The Country and The Team|
///////////////////////////////////

This Is Tricky. Which is the best team? is whats spinnin' on your mind right
now.(SEE THE Frequently Asked Questions Section)
After you have seen it. I reccomend you starting with Football League 2
                                                         |
                                                      Accrington

Although The Celtic Rangers won't be a bad choice. They score goals in an empty
field

-\-=\-\=-\
4> Sponsor
-=\-\=-\-\
As soon as you start thinking about your rubbish or starrish team you will be 
given the task of choosing a sponsor. Be very careful. This decision will 
affect your whole season. Choose The highest per match sponsor. You might also
have a win bonus. Check ands calculate and choose. Voila!!! 
Manager Mode Central.(Almost)

5> Pager
(){_){}_}
Then... You will get a screen of a cheapest PDA Screen.
and get a load of mails. You must check who the fan favorite is. Because, the
favourite attracts more tickets. Be sure to play him once every 2 matches. My
one was Wayne Rooney who had 98 OVR eventually and I suffered a lot with him.
Sell the little evil man if u hate the favourite. Will lose 10 Fan App.

:):):):):):):):)
6> Sweet Money
:):):):):):):):)
This is like real money. Get Stingy get lots of Shiny Things(Stars, Actually).
Save and sell. Sort out the young Sh!ts and Turds who do not grow by the 
growth checker at Manager Mode Central>Team Management>Player Growth. Then at
the Transfer season sell 'em. Buy The Gems spoon feed em and play 'em!

7> The Silverware
Getting silverware is not that hard at the beginning. When you face clubs like
Fenbahce, Grimsby Town, Crystal Palace.
But Bayern Munich, Arsenal is tough.

Fifa07b3.2 The Managerial Suite

@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@*@-

Life as a manager is not a bed of @ s you must beat it. 
this is the season you can read  \|/ and I'am here the Lazy Writer. Who takes
almost a year to complete a FAQ.  |  

1> Transfers
Get those youngy players and build a fast team. It should make a strong team.
I'd. Alexandre Pato, Wayne Mark Rooney, Geovanni Dos Santos. Aguero.

2> Youngsters
Check the youngster list on the hints and tips section. 
When your Scout has reached level 10 send him to scouting Deep Search. You 
should get dang good players. Exactly pin-point the positions on the list.

3> The Formation
I HIGHLY reccomend using the default formation for yer team.

4> Your Finger Pain
After 10-20 Matches you will start feeling mentally or physicaly weak. Here are
the remedies.

a> Physical Pain Remedy
The physical pains include dizzyness, partial blindess, disability of hearing,
finger aching, headache.

Dizzy and partial blindness 
May be avoided by leaving the PC for 5 minutes every 30 minutes(I don't do 
this). Remedy is rest and a cup of tea.

Disability of hearing
This can be caused by that Song named Tei!Tei!Tei! and headphones. Staying in
a quite room for a long time should fix it.

Finger Aches
This is done by rapid tapping of the fingers on a hard keyboard or constantly
trying to strangle the monitor. Can be cured by resting. If not cured dip 
fingers in a bowl of water mixed with 2 teaspoons of boric powder.

Headaches
Too much monitor and sound. Get someone to massage your head or have a pill.

b> Mental Pain Remedy
Caused by losing too many matches or winning 'em
okay enough joking. The Remedies were not a joke. I'm Serious. Guide Writers 
Honour(pray I won't get in trouble for this)

b.1> Simming 'em 
You can quick simulate the matches or visual sim the. The visual Simulation is
the better of the two evils. It gives you a championship manager view of the
piTch.

    all. Very Small. (for those with less I.Q like the quesstionairre, that was
    sarcasm)

Q1> I read your guide mate and it was really helpful. Thanks. Anyway, 
    how do I access my game tactics if I use a laptop to play?

A1> 
Hello Gabriel,

Well one of the drawbacks of playing FIFA in a laptop is Tactics. Since you 
dont have the num keys it can be bad. But i think u can get a way around it. 
Here are the list of things u can do.



1> Get a software which can change keyboards functions (like making Pause/Break
 into num 1)(Tweak UI might have this option). (Google it)



2> Buy a Dual-Analog Stick gamepad.



3> Buy a USB Keyboard.



BTW, This is my first mail after the 3 guides. Hope this helps. Feel free to 
mail me anytime. And thanks for finding my guide helpful. If u see anything 
wrong with it . Mail me.

     click on the FIFA 08 folder and go to properties un-check the read-only
     and press OK. Your PC or game probably turned off while saving. No comin'
