    Oki feel we need to advertise fifa patching more

    look at the pes, is not thats its more popular imo, its just everyone seems to know about patching, this has come about proberly becasue the game has no liscences and people always feel a need to patch

    still i just dont think there are enough patchers, we can get more

    i think a good way to start is on you tube

    well there's some things we can do, a good thing imo that we could to is making a introducion into the fifa addons world, maybe a sticky thread telling everything about it,how to do etc. or maybe a totally new website, with good structure and easy to find how to do stuffs, and it could also include links to the biggest addon sites! and maybe more sites could co-operate and telling about other sites patches..

        I think the introduction of the patchmaker in CM07 will significantly improve the number of patch makers around. Given time and education using it it could be quite powerful. I, for example, don't know how to make a traditional patch. I wouldn't have been able to release a national team patch without CM07. it makes the process quite simple.

          first of all, we would need well done tutorials for faces, kits and the different graphics
          then, people that commits with time and effort, but here's a problem, we all have lifes besides fifa

          another very usefull thing would be like, i don't know, 5 guys to make swedish mega patch, 5 guys to make argentinian league, and so on, so everthing keeps as updated as possible

          and another greatly usefull thing would be that we all use one program, like CM, so every patch is compatible with it, because we have now CEP, and different leagues round the world that are not compatible with each other
          If we all create patches with CM, would be much easier for everyone

            we need kinda "superpatch" like they have for pes...

              for a super patch is cep, but it would never be up to date as everyone wants

              small patches for every league or team would be great, and done all following the same "guidelines" son there's no dup teams or two teams with the same id, and so
              but as i said, it needs time, effort and colaboration

                CM assigns a new ID for every team added. regardless of their ID when the patch is made. If I remember right.

                Same with player ID's

                Adboards would be a little more difficult.

                I'de Like some help with the Mega Nat Team Patch if anyone can spare it.

                it will be up to about 70 total teams after the next release.

                  Introductions and "sticky" posts would be helpful. Or, on the other hand, we can stick to the same "USE THE SEARCH" rude reply for those not in the know.

                    Smaller egos and greater concern for the fellow gamer would be a nice start...
                    Compatibility is the road to be taken by everyone.It's absolutely ridiculous that you have to uninstall the game ,if for a reason you don't like a patch...It's not normal either,that if you want a league ,you have to forget all the other changes, you have painstakingly done over the time.Don't get me wrong,i do appreciate and admire the hard work of all the patch makers, but i think they do themselves harm by limiting the compatibility of their creations.And if these are not enough ,we have locked databases...Sorry for the length of this post..

                      ok, let's do this
                      come one, keep giving ideas
                      and, if we all commit to it, we can make it

                      what's more important? (besides time and talent)
                      tutorials? patchers? makers?

                        i believe advertising 1st is the best policy

                        an easy way is to post your videos of a patched fifa on you tube, generating intrest, adverts on forums may work aswell

                        you tube really seems the best option

                          The day the Fifa community will deflate it's ego and work together, hell will freeze over.

                            First and foremost. we need more patchmakers. Start a thread and sticky it of all patches currently being made. and suggest the people help out and learn a bit about how they are made. Provide links to the patches main page.

                            Strongly suggest using CM07 so we can get several leagues added without overwriting anything.

                            Then we need to work very very hard on making tutorials. Not just for the hardcore products like photoshop but for people who are willing to work with paintshop pro trials or photoshop elements. Cheap or free programs. Also start a thread and sticky it to keep track of all tutorials made.

                            if you have people contributing to a patch and reading and learning from tutorials we'll get a lot of interest. I can't tell you how many times people come on these forums begging to learn how to make kits, they are told it's hard and they shouldn't bother and never post again. That could be a Curswine or Sundsvall in 5 years or maybe just a random average run of the mill kitmaker in a year or so. We gotta encourage people even when others put em down.

                            My two cents.

                              Good point, liio. i've noticed several times that beginners get comments like "that's all crap", "horrible kits" or "that line on the short is stolen from my kit". I've had a discussion about that when two beginners started making arabic kits. i was very angry because it's arrogant to say such things and it was obvious that they wouldn't stay here long. who wants to make useful kits (arabic kits are because no one else ever made them) for a community that celebrates kits that take a week to make, the tenth arsenal or manchester kit made for some kind of competition - "who makes the best manU kit"? all this vain editing. and people like makispla or the two arabic kitmakers aren't even noticed.

                              my suggestion for the next fifa is to have lots of sticky threads in kits and editing forum, for all types of kits and stuff. "National teams", "Premier League", "Serie A". "Serie B" etc. No more threads for single kitmakers / editors. Everyone making a kit / face / etc would post it in the matching sticky thread, and the moderators or threadstarters could link it to the first post of the thread, so it would be easy to find. And no double post of kits. If ManU is made, there's no need to post it again.
