FM 2017 Fantasy Scenarios - FM17 Season Throwback 1982-83
The following patch regards leagues and teams dating from the season 1982 onward. This date was used as a reference point to catch up with some players at the dawning of their careers such as Gerd Muller, and some others at their beginnings such as Maradona. We're talking about players born approximately between 1948-1964, and not above. It would be foolish to see Platini as a teammate of Zidane (the purpose is to conquer titles with the good teams back then).

The database covers around 12,000 footballers of that golden era. There are full rosters from first leagues of Austria, Greece, DDR, BRD, France, Italy, England, Yugoslavia, USSR, Roland, Hungary, Belgium, Chechoslovakia, Argentina, Brazil and 70% of Holland, Scottland,Romania, Switzerland, Portugal, Turkey, Bulgaria, South America teams, and most importantly teams from other countries.

The patch working in version 17.0.1; in version 17.3.0 crash or we have duplicate names.
All graphic files include in specific skin (loading only that) and we use the folder editor data with specific files.

The rosters are real, there are leagues with teams of that era, the three European cups involving the participating countries back then (for example there are no teams from Ukraine, Slovakia, Croatia) but they're included in countries like USSR, Yugoslavia, West Germany etc. We have in place the limit of 2 or 3 foreign players, the old point system of 2-1-0 and maximum roster limit from 23 to 25 individuals, as well as some future transfers remained in history.

The database was created over the existing one to prevent crashing, so it's important that you add photos of 80s players in order for their profiles to not show the pics of players from today.
