FHM Version 1.0 Now Available!

Yes, it's finally here. The release version of FHM is available!

New buyers are probably best off downloading from Franchise Hockey Manager: Downloads

Beta players can grab the files from
(PC) FHM - Update 1.0.0
(Mac) FHM - Update 1.0.0
(that should prevent the caching issues we occasionally get with people getting the wrong download when the same link is used)

PC Installation instructions: After you download the file just install it over your existing game (you don't need to uninstall the old version first.) Make sure to select the correct path to your game if needed.
Mac Installation instructions: After you download the .dmg file, open it, move the fhm.app file to your applications folder and copy over the old version.

After installation, the game should display "Version 1.0, Build 0" at the bottom of the startup screen; if it shows a different build number, you'll need to re-download and reinstall (and before doing so, make sure the update file you downloaded has been deleted and your browser cache cleared.)

Note that if you decide to uninstall and reinstall, you should first release one of your licenses via Preferences-License on the start screen.

Saves from previous versions are not compatible with this versions, but, going forward, all saves should be forward-compatible with patches and updates.

It's been an extremely hectic few days and I haven't had a chance to prepare proper patch notes, but, in general:
-stability considerably improved
-stats fine-tuned, longstanding issues with defenceman scoring and top players not standing out enough much better now
-some trading issues corrected, notably the revolving door that saw some players move over and over again
-game speed increased, particularly during the offseason
-many, many miscellaneous bugs fixed

As I noted elsewhere, there's a known issue when trying to start a game as the St. Louis Blues. We'll get that fixed in the first patch, coming at the end of this week, but will try to find a short-term workaround before that.

Congratulations

Congratulations, Jeff. Great job by you and the development team. Can't wait to see how the game continues to progress and improve over the next few weeks, months and years. What you've done so far is an incredible achievement and I know there's much more to come.

Nice surprise this morning to get the email about the game. I was out of town for quite a while (just came back this weekend after months of not being there).

Just did my order and I can't wait to launch it. Thanks for all the hard works you did (and will certainly continue to do) for us hockey fans.

Simulating yes. The in-game engine will kill me of old age before the first season is done though.

It's faster, after we added some stuff to get the scoring a little more precise it got really slow, so Sebastian did some optimizing and it came out quicker than it was in the first place.

Just put together a custom league and the game won't advance past Sept. 1st. Froze up twice and trying to advance a month for the second time without success.

Edit: The game is starting too advance. It took about 4-5 minutes too do so.

Sounds like you have a corrupt file. Re-download and re-install (make sure you release your license first).

Historical Mode will not do anything when I click on the button. This is 95% of why I got the game.

Could you elaborate a bit? I played 5-6 seasons in Historical Mode 12 hours ago and it went just fine.

Congrats to the Team and Volunteers, you've turned out a gr8 product. I remember buying OOTP V1 a long time ago and how excited I was about the potential in that game. I share the same excitement now and have absolute faith in the Company and the direction its games are headed.

Bravo - have a few

You've earned it.

I'd imagine, considering the size and eagerness of the modding community already on the game, that this will be added sometime in the near future. But, considering they had to work on getting down core elements of the game down to right before the release date, I wasn't figuring this would be in the full release anyway.

I used to be able to simulate a season in 30 minutes with all leagues selected. Can't wait to see how much better the speed has gotten. I hope the off season has speed up as it was quite slow.

Just a note that while much improved, I'm still seeing a few silly trades.

Notably

Ryan Miller to PHI for Scott Laughton

Nathan Mackinnon to VAN for Zack Kassian

It is uncommon enough however that I have no problem with reversing them in commish mode.

Caphit of certain players

It´s still the same problem with the caphit of Kris Letang & Evgeni Malkin.
Instead of $3,5m and $8,7m they have their 2014-2015 salary/caphit.
The new contract doesnt take effect until next season.

If the editor could change the caphit this wouldn´t be an issue, but now you can only change the salary. Not the caphit.
