Interested in a copy of Football Manager 2007? Thanks to the bozos at the internet store who believed that, since I live in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, ordered the game in Dutch and got 3 confirmation mails in Dutch, I was in obvious need of a copy that's only playable in French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. The sacred plastic foil was removed but the condition is otherwise perfect, since I put in the cd-tray only once. I haven't even slung it across the room.

Sorry, not interested

(I don't think I have a compatible rig to play it on, and I never played a footbla simulation game)

thanks for the offer, but I'll keep clear of this title, I don't have the time to kneel in front of another time devouring god

You could download a dutch language pack for it.

I can't believe MoSe would say no to this. It's basically a big football spreadsheet, which sounds like his idea of perfection.

If I'll ever update my PC, I'll consider it. Say, in 10 years.

Colon, aren't you bilingual, like any good Belgian?

Colon
06-02-2007, 14:13:00
Yes, I speak fluent Dutch and English.

Apparently a number of torrent sites carry one. No idea if it's good or not.

But aren't we supposed to be learning Dutch on CG?

I'd love to know how to say "GOOOOOAL" in Ducth, or "The referee's a wanker!"...

Funko
07-02-2007, 12:35:32
English: GOOOOOAL!
Dutch: GOOOOOAL! or DOOOOOOOEL!

English: The referee's a wanker!
Dutch: De scheidsrechter is een Belg!

I can speak and understand French a bit, but not to the level required for a spreadsheet-game with peculiar terminology such as FM.

Don't they teach you french in a compulsory fashion at school? And they teach dutch to the walloons too in a similar fashion? I mean that it is not a "choice" lesson, you are required to take it. Of course, if you pay attention or not is a different matter.
I'm just curious because I'm sure that's the way it was some years back.

ah this linguistic resistance :D
although i dont know wether it's comme il fault to make a bit of fun about that. i don't know wether it is a sensitive matter. i have been to antwerp where we ordered in french and the order never came. then we went to another bar, ordered in english and our drinks came right away. so... i dont know
i puprosefully dont speak french to flemish people though. it just seems that they get along much better if spoken in english. that's in the flemish cities. in brussels it's ok. i have the greatest memories from my days in flanders (as well as in brussels) apart from one or two instances at the beggining when i spoke in french and was given blink/blonk stare. exception was a lovely old couple which was very happy i spoke french to them.
otoh i never saw that film about flemish linguistic oppression (dia? dea? something)

Funko
08-02-2007, 15:17:57
or ketchup or a combination?

Mustard on fries is great. It's mayo I've never understood.

Mustard is shit.

god, I was talking to COLON.

It was a test to truly determine his belgianfrenchness

In my travels and adventure thru Europe decades ago, I determined beyond any doubt that:

- French put mustard on their fries
- Belgium: mayo
- Germany: ketchup
- England: vinegar
- FACT!

Italy didn't sell fries in street kiosks at the time, nor had fast-foods yet

Colon

Vinegar on fries... that's disgusting.

How quaint.

Germany do mayo AND ketchup. Rot weiss, it's excellent.

England would be Salt and Vinegar anyway.

not in early '80s

Funko

Hmm. I went there in about '89 and they had it then.

Colon
08-02-2007, 17:18:42
Old people like you don't understand that 1989 is just about irrelevant.

Funko
08-02-2007, 17:20:13
Why, is that when you were born?

paiktis
08-02-2007, 21:21:28
