Welcome to the user manual for Franchise Hockey Manager 2!
Franchise Hockey Manager 2 ("FHM2") is a hockey management game from the developers of Out of the Park Baseball, long-recognized as the most sophisticated and best-selling baseball simulation game on the planet. In 2013 we published our first hockey management game, and now we've built on our experience with that game to create FHM2, the next step in hockey management.
FHM2 has many options designed to allow you to create your ideal hockey simulation, and this manual will illustrate and explain exactly how to go about doing that.
You can navigate sequentially through the manual by using the "Next Page" and "Previous Page" links at the bottom of the page. If you enjoy reading manuals, the manual is designed to gradually build your understanding of the game in a naturally flowing order. You can also click on the headings along the left if you wish to jump to a particular section of the manual.
You can use also the search function in the top right to search by keyword.
We hope you enjoy FHM2 as much as we enjoyed making it for you!
