Super League Manager CD32: How to save?

Does anyone remember how to save in this game? There is a disk on the table but when I click on it I can only see "load a game".

Still no luck with this. I can't find the manual of the game for the CD32 either. Does anyone happen to have the manual perhaps???

You sure its not one of those CD32 games that saves to floppy drive? A save game for a football management game would surely be far too big to save to CD32 NVRAM

I vaguely remember that it will save to NVRAM, however it's requires a lot of it available.

Thanks guys. What puzzles me is that there is no option to save the game. On the other hand, there is only the option to load a game, from the NVRAM, as RetroPaul mentioned...

Perhaps only the option appears if you have enough space to save, not near a computer to try in winuae

I still haven't managed to find out how to save in this game. My CD32 has free memory available but I can see no 'save game' option anywhere... :'[

The manual that came with the CD32 version has mostly been written for the OCS/ECS and AGA disk versions, with just the odd reference here and there to the CD32 version. This is what it says about saving games:

"When you click on the disk, the game pauses. Now click on LOAD GAME or SAVE GAME. Make sure that you have a data disk available - never, never, never attempt to save to the program disk, because it will never work again! That's because when you save a game the entire contents of the disk are overwritten (Note: This means that only ONE game position can be saved per disk)."

If you're not getting a save option when you click on the disk button in the CD32 version, then perhaps Audiogenic stripped it from the AGA disk version (as Galahad said, due to insufficient space in NVRAM) when they "ported" it over to the CD32 for release. Either that or the save option only pops up if the game detects a disk drive attached to the CD32.

You could try hooking up a floppy drive to your CD32 with a formatted disk inserted and see what happens when you click on the disk in the game. I tried it quickly here on my A1200/030 using a CD32 emulator and from WB with degrading (no caches etc.), but the bugger didn't wannna play ball and I kept getting gurus.
