FM 2023 Fantasy Scenarios - Retro Database 1987-88 for FM23
I found on the internet a FM 19 database for the season 87-88. It was done by ethan76 from the Sports Interactive Community. He gave me permission to rework it for FM 23, and with the help of Wolf_pd, whose files I reworked, I came up with this result.

I know the db isn't perfect, but I wanted to let people who are a little nostalgic to play something new until the release of the new FM... There are certainly mistakes, which are not intentional, and I hope you will point them out to me.

Released: 1 October 2023

I had a desire to make a regen file as well, but I just didn't have time... Also, I didn't make graphics for this mod, because I don't have enough knowledge for that. If someone has the will and desire to do it, I have nothing against it ;)

Season 1987/88 Database - 6 Playable Nations

The first divisions of the following nations are completed.
  • England (Premier League)
  • Italy (Serie A)
  • Spain (La Liga)
  • France (Ligue 1)
  • Germany (Bundesliga)
  • Yugoslavia (First League)
Also, many players added to clubs from that era.
