What is this? - Author's statement

"The largely inadequate representation of continental African football is the most severe issue that has to be taken into consideration when intending to create a more realistic gameworld within FM. So, that was my main motivation to start an overhauling of the African Database for FM2009, that was resleased as the AFRICAN MEGA DATABASE.

I have now transfered this update to FM2010 by converting all my changes to a massive XML file which adds nearly 5000 African players to the Database! Compared to the FM2009 version I just excluded a few hundred Malian players which I will release in a seperate file which will also include the Malian league structure.

Apart from that, almost all black African countries are covered with massive updates. I will gradually update this file to add even more players from more countries in the future. Please, let me know what you think about my project."

Enjoy!

    Thanks for reporting this. I didn't check the download link provided by the author before posting it here. As I have a premium account, I'll get it and add it to FileFront in a bit.
