I was watching a video on youtube the other day of a guy called Howson playing on old CM from 97 and the game was so basic but still so enjoyable as i reminisced about the good old days.
You see the beautiful game back then was full of characters, players of great skill, hard tackling midfield generals, need i say more?
But the game engine was somewhat lacking, so i ask you, the community how possible would it be to create a database of say 1997, players like Cantona, Ronaldo, Shearer, Rivaldo, Zidane etc to play with them on the new match engine?
Or is it possible to transfer the data from on old game to a new game? Is anyone up for such a task or is it just impossible?
Lastly any feedback would be welcome and thanks in advance.
FM 2016 had a megapack includes legends like you said but I don't know if there will be something like that on FM 2017 and I don't know if it can work on FM 2017... Like you, I also want that someone will add megapack like it...
This is the link for the megapack:
That's pretty cool can't believe that's the first time I've seen that thanks for the link I might give that a go ,,, although a true full old database from a specific year is what I'm after maybe that's something sports interactive could do as a dlc or even someone in the MOD community what would everyone else think ?
I've just released the first legends database for FM17.

I think you have NO idea how much work this is! For one specific year you have to create 10,000 players or something! How many players do you want to create for one year? Then you need their history. You might as well just re-do the whole database of players. It will take you about 5 years to create such a thing! You must realize that the database we use now, has been created over many years, each year they just update the data, and that takes their data capturers months of work.

In my `Legendary Wonderkids` database, I create about 150 players and it took me 2 months, starting from scratch. Trust me, it's not worth the effort to make every player that played in one specific year!
