I won a stage with a breakaway from pavel brutt, on one of the last 3 mountain stage of the vuelta, I attacked earlyish and he built up quite a large lead, i think because I also had teh gold jersey and just left them to do what they wanted it went up to about 15 minutes and I just had set to take really and around 65% and when he went over the top of the 2nd last climb i just told him to sit on the wheel of van goolen who died about 4km from the top and left me to win.....

I have also seen the computer win with a few breakaways too but not very often...


Anyway I am playing it with katusha, in the 2nd season my plan is to make pozzato go for the paris roubaix giro double :S, I don't know if he can do this though..

Stijn devolder has signed for euskaltel in my game :S
the transfers after each season are silly. seriously after 1 season teams look completely different.

I once had conti not re-sign or sign with any other team. I made an illusion that he doped :p

Euskaltel stays pretty spanish in my games. I thought they added some flag in the DB that helped with that.

Of course they don't stay basque... but all spanish is good enough.
 
I'm playing Eurotour/Pcciclismo rather than PCM right now, but some of you might be interested to know that with three stages of the Tour remaining my boy Hoogerland is 6 seconds behind the yellow jersey: Gesink.

Is there a working startlist-tool for PCM 2010 ?
If not, I'll just do it manually. Always good to learn the lineup. :)

btw, Alberto beat me (Purito) with 4 minutes. Got 2nd at Giro with a good random startlist.
But I got the mountain jersey with Trofimov. :D

I managed to do it(infact he won all three jerseys ), I think i should probably put the difficulty up :S but i like to win, I gave pippo 2 training camps to get him to 75 in the mountains and made him attack hard in every hilly race and the flat stages that had an uphill finish(just like real life :S)..

Next plan is for pippo to win all 5 monuments I am only missing the tour of flanders(twice 2nd place) and the lbl it might take 2 more seasons for that though.

Cavendish has no contract for next season so I think i will sign him just to make him greipels lead out man

Dude, up the difficulty. Aiming for realism is one of the big appeals of these games for me :)

Has anyone downloaded the game (2010 version) through Amazon's new digital game downloads?

I'm looking to put the game on a new, faster computer.

Amazon offers to archive the download with the game purchase of 20.00 dollars.

Good or bad experiences ?

Thanks

I´m still addicted to PCM 2007.

The (heavily modified) 1996 db is great. VDB without mental problems can win almost anything :)
 
pcm 2009 played a big trick on me this last season.

with boonen: second in M-SR behind devolder, on the ronde second behind cancellara and on roubaix third behind canc and pozzato <_<

then with cunego (i have him on my team) got second in amstell and third in liege. . . . . . .

you can't even imagine how grumpy i was after that classics season. . .

Or wait a while more until patches etc. make it ok to play.
Yes I was wondering about that as to whether I could patch the 2010 database to the 2011 once it gets released.

haha, I did something similar with the 2007 standard DB

heavily modified it to my needs (I can scout in every country in the game for instance :) ) and Vandenbroucke with godlike stats
 
When talking about godlike stats, try buying Sagan on PCM 2010. After some time he'll have 77 sprint, 81 acc, 85 hill etc. I had to sell him because the game became too easy, even on extreme!

How in this world you are able to do this or let it happen?

Only once in my 3 years with PCM was a successful breakaway (including 1 of my riders) happening. All other races/stages the breakaways were caught.

Only once or twice a breakway was making it to the finish line when none of my riders were included in the breakaway.

To have a more realistic game i would like to know how to do it.
Could it be...
a.) that i play/ed in the "Normal-Modus"? Should i change to "extreme"?
b.) that it is because i use the PCM 2009? I wouldn´t like to give it up, because i edited the Database in 2+ years.
c.) that i should really dig deep into the Database and change some programming? That would be hard, because i have no idea how to do it.
If that´s the case, i´d like to send you me Database for change. (BTW i would like more crashes; it seems there are too little. And i´d like to upload pics of riders into my database.
d.) that i just play the game wrong? I mean i really don´t work on glosing the gap between the peloton and the breakaway, but all the time the other teams do it for me. Even tough i don´t want that to happen.

Urgent help and advice is needed. Thanks :)

P.S.: How can you loose 3 minutes on ITT with a 72-ITT-Rate? I always crush my opponents (or at least stay close with them) with my 70+ ITT´lers.

For example, i put 3+ minutes on everybody with Scarponi and Simoni exept Basso ("only" + 53 seconds) in the 2009-Giro-63-KM-TT.
It is the 2009 edition that doesnt really allow breakaways to succeed. 2010 is much more realistic in that regard, for example i won overall at Asturias with Juanjo Oroz with a 5 minute breakaway victory on 1st stage (because for some reason Geox couldnt be arsed to control the race until lead got to 10m) and then hung for dear life in the following 4 stages (won by 40 seconds over Cobo in the end).

Get PCMdaily 2011 database, guys did a fantastic job, and put the difficulty to hardest, and in my opinion you will have the best PCM edition ever. Its still a bit too easy to win races early in the season (until the classics start) but later on you really have to try hard and also be a bit lucky, especially if playing with a weaker team without many strong domestiques.

A little bit unrelated, but it's worth mentioning that Cyanide is releasing a game called Tour de France 2011 for XBOX360 and Playstation 3.

It's a completely new game, so it's not related to the previous XBOX Arcade and PSP games.

PCM.daily revealed a bunch of details about the game a couple of days ago: http://pcmdaily.com/news.php?readmore=639

There's also a few screenshots out - they are quite old, though: http://pcmdaily.com/photogallery.php?album_id=42&rowstart=12 (screens marked with "console")
