And for those who are about to play the beta:

Let me reiterate that the upcoming release will be a beta version of FHM 1. Anyone expecting it to work flawlessly and for it to have the depth of OOTP version 13 is likely setting themselves up for disappointment.

I have no doubt in my mind FHM will be a long running franchise, but it won't be perfect right away, and I hope everyone realizes that. It may take awhile, and it will take some major testing by many people, but we'll eventually have a fantastic hockey sim, I think everyone knows this.

The final product in September will obviously be MUCH more polished than the beta version.

I hope people test the hell out of it.

This is a beta, be nice to Sebastian, Malte, JeffR, Dani, and Brad over there.

I'm one of the researchers/beta testers for FHM.

The NHL ratings are, of course, already perfect.

For any sort of bug related posts would you prefer them under the beta testing thread on your site? So far I noticed I have an assistant coach labeled as a 54 year old player haha.

Yeah, those are better posted over there so we can track them more easily. What coach, anyhow? That technically shouldn't even be possible, the staff and player records are separate.

Ok will do! Dave Cameron for the Ottawa Senators is listed as a "Player" under the job title on the personnel screen.

As someone who has been testing the game for a month now, I'm excited that everyone else is getting a chance to finally play.

Ah, I see the problem, his team role is blank in the database. Easily fixed, thanks.

Starting a season with Montreal Canadiens.

Michel Therrien isn't the head coach, and a lot of their staff doesn't have any stats.

And I can't seem to hire an Head Coach. But I can hire scouts / asst. coach

Hey, I just bought it through paypal, and when I click on "Download FHM for Windows" the link doesn't work.

EDIT: Oh, is it that the beta isn't out yet?

From their twitter account:
If you already pre-ordered and need the download, try this: http://files.ootpdevelopments.com/fhm/fhm2014setup.exe or this: http://www.ootpdevfiles.com/fhm/fhm2014setup.exe - thanks

Yeah the staff seems to be a work in progress. Ottawa's head coach is sitting as in the list of available hires and our scouting staff all sucks apparently.

Edit: I suppose I could have responded to both posts in one post. opps!

Thank you so much, and thanks especially to the people involved in making this possible.

I've never been so happy spending money than on something like this. It's a niche product, so I didn't think it would ever come back, so to have this is just amazing!

Suggestion: List all "good" positions in the postion column on rosters. E.g. if a guy is a 20 LW and 19 RW list him as "LW/RW" or something, or maybe just "W".

Seems not to take in to account "skill" positions as players move up in leagues. E.g. most forwards who make it out of juniors into the NHL played C in juniors, but many transition to the wing in the bigs. Jeff Skinner for instance.

Bought the Beta...you can tell this will be a great game but it is not there yet. Gonna continue testing it, since I love hockey sims and have the patience for that, but will not recommend it to my friends until the release since it is so buggy and they will dismiss it if I give it to them now. Cant get past 2 week of the season right now due to bugs...

Spent the 1st half hour comparing it to EHM, but now that I'm discovering the game on it's own, I'm seeing the ENORMOUS potential! Keep up the great work guys!

On a completely unrelated topic, I may have to call in sick tomorrow...

You take the GM/Coach role when you take over the team, so Therrien and Bergevin lose their jobs. At one point it was going to be one job or the other, but that got cut for the sake of simplicity. You can delegate some of the responsibilities to the computer, though, if you want to focus on either aspect.

The staff ratings aren't done yet - staff has a big role in player development, so we deliberately didn't start editing those details yet. That way, we can make sure that development's working OK with neutral (on average) staff values before we add another variable to the mix.
