MRA Skins are on their way
Yes, soon you will be able to customise your own MRA to match your favourite team or league. A version will be available this week which enables you to load graphics of your favourite teams, etc... and customise the background, the buttons and hopefully the tabs. Please click on the link below to see an early screen shot. We are developing a number of skins before we release this version so there are teams available for you to select. Please watch this site over the next few days as we will be making the graphical template available for you to design your own skins.

Testing progress with MRA version 2
I have had feedback from all the Testers now and there are a couple of issues which need addressing. These will be dealt with in the next couple of days and then we will have the production version of release 2 available for download. Please check back for updates.

Added New Link
I have also added the following link to the site:

  • FIFA 99 UEFA Champions League - This is the latest league from the manager of the excellent FIFA 99 FA Premiership League, Colin Webster. The FIFA99 UEFA Champions League is based on this years Champions League tournament, from the last 16 onwards. The idea of the league is this : each of this years Champions Leagues last 16 qualifiers will be controlled by a human player. When that team plays their CL match in real life, YOU play the fixture against your opponent in FIFA99. The league is fully subscribed but well worth a visit to see the site and watch progress. League starts 23rd November.

Beta tested FIFA-MRA version 2 this evening
I have tonight had the pleasure of testing an early release of version 2 of the MRA. This gives you the ability to run multiple instances of FIFA99 and FIFA2000 and maintain all the league details for each game. This is a brilliant addition to coincide with the release of FIFA 2000 so everyone can continue to take part in their FIFA99 leagues and compete in the new FIFA2000 leagues as they arise.
