We're aware we need to improve all of our game manuals, so we'll see what we can do for FHM 2015. Thanks.

I checked with Jeff and he said that nothing has changed substantially from last year, so the CBA rules will still be reflected. The cap and floor will be adjusted, though, since that happens every year.

Does the new match engine mean we will have revamped tactics?

Will it be possible to create a fictional league with the historical database?

Specifically, I'd like to create an alternate NHL starting in the 1940s (or 1920s in the new version) that would have eight or ten teams in it rather than six. But it would still use the actual NHL players.

Sorry, thats nothing we have planed for 2015. At some point in the future that might be something we add if enough people are interested in.

Hi guys!

I bought the FHM-14 game. I found it interesting, mainly for being a real ice hockey supporter. However, I found the game inconsistent because of all its bugs and problems. Hence, I looked forward to the 2015 edition. As the autumn began, I waited. As the NHL began, I waited. As the new year came upon us, I waited. And still I am waiting.

Seriously. I appreciate all the work you guys put on this. The concept is great, and this could be a great game. But my patience for this season is very soon to be completely gone. Wouldn't it be better to cancel FHM-15, and focus on a great FHM-16 - available in the start, or at least first part of the NHL season?

One consideration (among many others) is how far are the developers from producing a game? If they're close they should create FHM15. If they're still far away from a quality game perhaps they should wait and have a FHM16 in October of 2015.

But of course money is involved. Someone has to pay the developers and if there's no FHM15 where is the money going to come from?

We already have a plan in place that I'm pretty happy with and that should work out well for the future off FHM. It is just a bit to early for more details but we will announce our plans in the near future.

Hi! As I said earlier - I really appreciate all the work you guys put in this. And I'm really looking forward to these new announcements! However, as you assumably plan to release a late FHM 15, I really hope the effort you put in FHM 15 will render an early (september-november) release of FHM 16.

Will it be possible to take national teams? Tournaments will be integrated? (e.g. CHL)

O.K., if you don't mind a stupid question from a new visitor: I'm seeing references in threads to "FHM 2015" and also to "FHM 2" -- are these two different products, or was it just decided to take the year off the upcoming release title because you don't know if it will be out in time?

No, that will not be part of FHM 2.

FHM 2 = FHM 2015, same product.

To expand, it's simply a change to the naming convention of our game. From here on in, it will be FHM 2, 3, 4, 5, etc, as opposed to years... Similar to how the naming is done for OOTP.

Thanks -- although that did make me think for a bit, until I realized that the current version of the latter game is OOTP 15, not OOTP '15!

I would definitely be interested in this kind of game mode.
