    Yes, they (all) work. But weird things as this (weird values) could occur.

      I'll add these lines about product.ini affecting the career mode.
      When you play the career mode you will notice that strong teams are much stronger in career mode than friendly mode, as weak teams are weaker in career mode than friendly.
      Now you can edit this behaviour with this code.Is commented by EA so it is easy to understand:
      Code:
      [CAREER_MODE]
      
      // negative means that the opposition is better than us
      // positive means that the opposition is worse than us
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_0 	= -25
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_1 	= -20
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_2 	= -15
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_3 	= -10
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_4 	= -7

      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_6 	= -4
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_7 	= -3
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_8 	= -2
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_9 	= -1
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_10 	= 0
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_11 	= 5
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_12 	= 10
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_13 	= 15
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_14 	= 20
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_15	= 25
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_16 	= 30
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_17 	= 35
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_18 	= 40
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_19 	= 45
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_20 	= 50
      
      // 100 represents one full difficulty level
      // negative reduces the difficulty
      // positive increase the difficulty
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_0 	= 100
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_1 	= 100
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_2 	= 100
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_3 	= 75
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_4 	= 60
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_5 	= 50
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_6 	= 40
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_7 	= 30
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_8 	= 20
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_9 	= 10
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_10 	= 0

      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_19 	= -100
      DIFFICULTY_MODIFIER_20 	= -100
      
      // we want to simulate that player a team that's better than you
      // that is rated in the 80s is harder then if they were in the 50s
      // so we scale the user rating between MIN_VAL and MAX_VAL
      // and apply the the modifier to the difficulty modifier above
      // so if I'm rated 85 and I play someone better than me, I multiply
      // the difficulty modifier by 3 - if I was rated 80 it would be 2.3333
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_MIN_VAL = 70
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_MAX_VAL = 85
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_MIN_MOD = 1.0
      OVERALL_RATING_DIFF_MAX_MOD = 3.0

        Thanks!

        Is it possible to extract them now? (e.g. is the encryption problem solved?)
        Where did you get the following lines from?

        In the FIFA13.exe there are more values that can't be found in other *.ini files.

          max_alloc extracted these from demo, i think the full game is the same.

                Thanks, will try to get them extracted from the full game, when possible.

                Nevermind: it's a bug.
                Trying to fix it.

                Yes. I will add this to the todo list.

                  Two questions regarding file use and player stat decrease after 30+

                  hi beta990,

                  I appreciate your work making the career more realistic.

                  I have two questions for you regarding your career tweaks:

                  1) I'm only interested in the following adjustments to my career mode:
                  - Less movement of top players
                  - Better growth of players
                  - Less retirement

                  Do I only use the files 'transferteamdecision', 'playergrowth' and 'playerretirement' for this and regenerate after with iard68 tool?

                  2) I noticed a lot of decrease in stats of players at the age of 30 or higher. For example: I tested with Chelsea, Ashley Cole decreased from 84 to 83 after the first 2 friendly games. Is this issue addressed in your 'playerretirement' file or is this file only extending the age players decide to retire?

                  It would be great if we can play with 30+ players with decent stats (especially for (potential) world class players).

                  Thanks in advance for your reply.

                    hey beta990,

                    i really enjoy your career mode tweaks. Except of that -2.000.000 bug, everything works fine for me.

                    What im not happy with, is the price cpu is calling for some players. (specially for high potential players).

                    For example:

                    Player 1
                    ~76 skill
                    Only 6 months left on contract
                    Market Price €9.500.000 / 6.500.000 for vanilla

                    Cpu request min. €25.000.000,.....sometimes even €28.0000.000
                    Considering that he has only 6 months left on his contract, this is just ridiculous.

                    Tried the same with vanilla, and cpu requested €13.500.000 and was even accepting an offer of €9.000.000.


                    Player 2
                    ~74 skill
                    3 years left on contract
                    Market Price €6.500.000 / 3.500.000 for vanilla

                    Cpu request min. €18.300.000 and most of time dont accept offer under €21.000.000.
                    On Vanilla cpu is asking at least €13.200.000 and mostly accept offers around €13.500.000.

                    Even though the market price in vanilla is most of time too low, i think the requested price by cpu is more realistic with vanilla.

                    Tried to tweak it by myself, but didn´t found the right balance.
                    Maybe you can find a solution?

                    Also want you to ask, if you maybe know, what following lines exactly mean. (can be found in managerai.ini):

                    [MAI_PLAYER_POS_SCORE]
                    PREFERRED_POS_1 = 35 // Score a player receives if a position is his 1st preferred
                    PREFERRED_POS_2 = 15 // Score a player receives if a position is his 2nd preferred
                    PREFERRED_POS_3 = 3 // etc
                    PREFERRED_POS_4 = 1

                    PREFERRED_POS_LIKENED_1 = 10 // Score a player receives if a position is his 1st if likened rather than exact
                    PREFERRED_POS_LIKENED_2 = 5
                    PREFERRED_POS_LIKENED_3 = 1
                    PREFERRED_POS_LIKENED_4 = 0

                    NOT_PREFERRED_POS = -50 // How much a player loses in score when he doesn't like the position

                    [MAI_PLAYER_BENCH_SCORE]
                    NOT_PREFERRED_POS = -50 // How much a player loses in score when he doesn't like the position
                    Does it stand for how much a player earn exp or for their ability on preferered/not preferred positions ?

                      Hi,

                      1) Yes, that are the files you need. You will need to regenerate after editing.

                      2) Some could also be defined in playergrowth.ini, you will have to search. :P

                      Will take this into the next version.

                      Thanks for the input! Will take your report in the next version.

                      managerai.ini is for the assistant that you can use to manage your team (e.g. do subs). I could be mistaken though.

                        Thanks very much for the amazing tweaks. I have a suggestion which I am sure many others would like to see in career mode. Reduce the negative player growth (decline). You should not see players like Pirlo, Drogba, Ibrahimovic etc go down by 5 overall rating in 1 season as soon as they hit 31-32. Can you do something to reduce this player decline. that would be much appreciated.

                        Thanks again!

                          Hello everyone!

                          Just finished-up my rewrite of the career mode edits (to finally remove some bugs in the previous versions), from now on this will be known as [MOD] FIFA 14 Better Career Patch.

                          I'm going to focus even more on gameplay editing (db, product, etc.):
                          - No more quick throw-ins
                          - Better and realistic gameplay
                          - A more realistic career mode
                          - Better player values/wages/grown levels
                          - More fun!

                          I can't do this myself. I have already got some help from great people around here (see credits 2nd post), but to make this project better I need input from you guys. I'm I doing the right things, is it better to do this, this would be cool, I think we need to ask [insert member]..

                          So far I have received reports from you users, see the one above from ronaldinho80 as an example. But it would be nice to select a group of testers (if any) that would like to play with more unstable versions.

                          I'm also willing to join an already existing team, if my style is appreciated.

                          Anyway, to make a long story short: please test my new mod and hope you like it!

                          Thanks goes out to jenkey1002, without his FIFA 14 File Explorer tool, I would be lost..

                          PS. At mods, could you change the topic title to: [MOD] FIFA 14 Better Career Patch and move it to the right place? Many thanks

                            Cool thanks for these updates, one thing though:

                            - Complete disabled Radio! (Do you also 'hate' the guy that talks about matches when you wanted to listen to the music?)
                            You do realise you only have to press back button on controller and match report commentator will fade out and stop?

                            Is it radio.lua that does this, I dont want it removed so is it that file to not include or anything else?

                            As regards no more quick throwins, do you mean the animation where the balls get chased /picked up and taken to line to then throw? So now it just cuts and fades to set position?

                              Thanks, much appreciated. I see you updated the files in your latest patch. Besides the playergrowth.ini, transferteamdecision.ini and playerretirement.ini do I use any other file to make these three work (I see for example a new Lua-file called Retiringplayer.lua)?

                              Thanks again

                                I enjoyed using it on 13 and I will use it for sure in 14
                                Is your mod compatible with ModdingWay Patch?
