Exp Pack / 2011 DB: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
CrueTrue
Frequently Asked Questions about PCM.daily's Expansion Pack



Downloading and installing
Do I need to download the files listed under "Mirror"?
Due to heavy traffic, we have uploaded the exact same file to several different places. You decide which one to use.

When installing, it says that the file is corrupted! (File couldn't be installed - bla, bla bla)
In general, it's recommended to use a download manager when downloading larger files like this one. If you're using Internet Explorer, I can recommend FlashGet. If you're a Firefox user, DownThemAll is an excellent plugin.

When installing, I'm asked to create a new folder. Yes or no?
In that case, it's being installed to the correct folder. The first package (it was corrected later) contained a wrong default installation path which had a 0 too much in the path name (20010 instead of 2010). Just remove it and press next.

Equipment
I can't select all the equipment - why not?
You can - just not in the Equipment Buying Screen. In the Equipment Selection Screen before a race, all the equipment is selectable.

All the equipment has the same stats - why?
In PCM, equipment does not have an effect. The stats pretty much doesn't represent anything. Therefore, the stats are equal for all types of equipment.

All the equipment is free, and I want to buy it!
Teams do not buy equipment in real life. Teams are paid to ride specific brands of equipment, so we've made it free and thereby given you the choice of what equipment to use.

Some teams don't use the same equipment as they use in real life. Why is that?
The DB comes with a very enhanced equipment part - but there are limits. We don't have everything, but as far as possible, the teams are using their real life equipment. If we don't have it, we've set the teams to use equipment that match their team kit.

Doped Riders
I've just signed Danilo Di Luca, but I can't select him for races.
All of the dopers have been given an injury that makes them unavailable for riding until their (real life) ban expires.

The game says that e.g. Thomas Dekker's suspension runs out in November. I'm now in December, and he's still suspended.
In the Rider Info box, the game doesn't say in which year the rider will be available again. Therefore, it's a good idea to do some research before signing a rider Wink

Ricco's just returned for Ceramica Flaminia, but he's completely useless in my game.
The suspended riders' fitness drop for each day that they are suspended (it's being reset at the end of the year, though). So when Ricco returns, he probably won't be to much good - it'll take him so time to regain his fitness.

I've now signed a suspended rider. When I click the rider, the game crashes.
If you've signed a banned rider the game crashes when you click his name. So, either 1) don't sign banned riders until their ban has expired, or 2) don't click the banned riders that you've signed.

AI teams sign banned riders despite the fact that they're not returning until 1-2 seasons later. Is this normal?
Unfortunately, we can't prevent AI teams from signing whoever they like.

Graphics
I can't ALT+TAB anymore. Why?
When installing this DB, your settings are reset. To make ALT+TAB work, you need to disable the introduction videos (Options -> Graphics).

After installing this DB, the game is much slower in 3D.
As in the question above: Your settings are reset when installing this DB. Therefore, lowering your graphic settings should do the trick.

After installing this DB, the game tends to crash mid-way through a stage - why?
The equipment and improved stages take up more RAM than the original game. If your game crashes, it's unable to run with the graphic settings that you have selected. Lower tham, and it will work.

Some scouting zones, flags and/or as equipment photos seem to be missing (pink) - why?
Open up Program Files/Cyanide/PCM/PCM.daily DB Backup and read the ReadMe.

Other issues
The equipment in track mode is invisible.
This DB is a road race DB. If you want to play track races, use the OfficialRelease or any other DB.

When scouting young riders, all of them seem to have the same name.
Open up Program Files/Cyanide/PCM/PCM.daily DB Backup and read the ReadMe.

Will this pack be compatible with the new patches that come out, do we just re install the pack over each patch or how does it work?

Make sure that the Local.cdb from the MyDocuments.7z is placed in My Documents/Pro Cycling Manager 2010.


Just a quick suggestion for what it should be. Smile

What in the editor tells the potential of each riders except the table ''value_potential''? I remember that with the Hannes Converter (PCM 08) it was one table(don't remember the name) with numbers from around 250-420 or something. The biggest talents had like 415 +-. And it also was one table with the same numbers which showed how much of their potential which was ''used''.

Make sure that the Local.cdb from the MyDocuments.7z is placed in My Documents/Pro Cycling Manager 2001.

I was trying to work out exactly how super prestige rankings worked and was wondering if anyone could point me to the correct file.
Thanks

Please assume I am joking unless otherwise stated

Check the STA_bonus tables by opening the DB with the Full Editor.

Hi there, I want to use your database, allthough I want to start in an earlier year, how can I manage this ?

Greetings
 
CrueTrue
Eltoroloco: More NCs are only possible if there's a certain amount of contracted riders from a country.

Timpiej: You can change it in the GAM_config (either in the DB or the Local - I don't remember exactly)

Is it just a feeling or sprinters pass hills with much more difficulty than in the main game?
Team Europcar !!

Are you missing some flags too?

In that case:
