  • This might be a stupid question...but really need help.

    I would have posted on the Championship Manager forum ....but since its all but dead.....i posted here.

    I bought CM 03/04 last week for the soul purpose of pretty much just playing with the Uruguay national team.

    Now after going to about 3 different forums.....no one was able to help me with this question.

    I just want to know how to play as the Uruguayan national team.

    But I read that the only way to pick a National team is to play on the LEAGUE in which you want to manage.
    Problem is that there is no Uruguayan league.......so ive tried everything but the little "Manage team" Never apears when i click on a player....or the nation......etc

    Can anyone help me at all please?

    thanks

    Actually, the info is in the 'How to' thread in the Older CM games forum. I'll repost it here for you, and add some extra info, much easier

    There need to be sufficient players of the nation to be able to manage it. You can try to achieve this by using the retain_nation_players command:

(edit, by Ruud: This keeps all players with that nationality in the game, does not affect foreign players in the nation's league system. You need to use the full name of the country, as used on the title bar of the National squad; i.e.: "United States" for USA, and "China P.R." for China.)



    save the notepad as team/nation.ddt (the ddt bit on the end is the most important part.... just type that in), just copy like in the pic below including putting the file type to 'all files'. The bit of the name before the dot is just for recognition. Name "as you like.ddt"



    then put that file in CProgram Files\Eidos\CM 03-04\data\db
    like the pic below......

    Of course, you'll have to use "uruguay", not el salvador

      Thanks so much man.

      But what I was looking for was just a kinda "step by step" instruction on how pick Uruguay to manage.

      Everyone always tells me: "Find a Uruguayan player and it should say MANAGE TEAM at the bottom right......."
      But it never says "Manage team" at all.

      I've done everything possible but I cant manage Uruguay for the life of me. Only like Brasil is available (And I play the J-League....so thats wierd).

      if you could help again.
      thanks again.

        Bare in mind that the squad must have 26 players.

        For the rest here's Cody to help you out:

        1 you come in the add manager screen.
        2 you fill in your name etc. etc.
        3 when you choose the team, click choose from a list.
        4. you get all the clubs you can take control of.
        5. you click (do NOT take control of the team) on the team. In example Liverpool.
        6. you get the team screen (with Dudek, Hyypia etc.)
        7. You pick a player from the nationality you want to manage the team of. For example you want to manage France, you choose Cheyrou
        8. You click the player from the wished nationality (Cheyrou)
        9. You get his profile. Which says his name (Bruno Cheyrou bla bla bla)
        10. You can see his nationality on the screen, it's beneeth the player name
        11. Click it, you know get the French squad (or any other).
        12. If there are enough players available from that country there is a button in the right down corner which says ''control team''
        13. Click it and voila!

          Wow....well I did everything (step by step) INCLUDING the "notepad" file (which worked too).

          Now the team does have 26 players and everything.......but it STILL wont apear.

          What gets me furious is that it works when clicking "Brazil" for example. (which has 26 players automatically).

          I dont know. id hate to bother u guys again but if you have any last suggestion, it would help.



          thanks for your time guys.

            There need to be something like 150 players in the game's database with Uruguayan nationality to be able to manage Uruguay, not just 26. (I meant to put that in earlier, but I forgot )
            If there's just not that many players in the database, you'll never be able to manage it, unless you add Uruguayan players with the editor.


            Just checked, there's actually plenty players if you have that .ddt active. 1415 players to be exact. You do have to select Uruguay as the team to manage at the start of the game, btw, otherwise the original manager will keep his job.

              man.....THank you so much.

              i think only a handful of people out of a million would have taken their time to answer such a dumbass question of mine.

              Thanks to everyone.


              Oh and 1 more thing........i did the game in the "large" database mode.......(only way I can find more than 150 uruguayans) and the game takes me like (literally) 50 minutes every time i press "Continue Game".

              Does anyone know how I could play the same way but in the medium data base mode (the mode I play)

              (Also.....the Editor wont let me load a database cause aparently..."i dont have one". Do you know how I can save a data base?)

              Thanks again guys

              EDIT: And I know.......This is like the ULTIMATE Noob thread (I can picture hundreds of "Just kill youself now noob" posts lol :funny:

                With the .ddt active, the Uruguayan players will all be loaded, even on small database. No need for large database. About the editor... try Michael Nygreen's CM4 / CM 03/04 editor, which is available from www.nygreen.net. Don't use the one that came with the game.

                  thanks so much man. you've been alot of help.

                  about the .ddt file.......how do I get it to operate? Ive loaded it on the right folder but the players dont appear on the game (ive done everything right)


                  Im guessing i have to upload the ddt file in the game after its in the file or something.

                  This is the last thing im asking

                  thanks again.

                    After you have saved it in the "\data\db" folder, you go into the 'edit preferences' screen to see if it's really there. Like this:



                    If it's not there, you have probably not saved it correctly, and will still have it as .txt in stead of .ddt.

                      that was such a good lay-out I miss it
                      I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of freezing cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for letting us work there, and when we got home, our Dad would murder us in cold blood, each night, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah." But you try and tell the young people of today that... and they won't believe ya'.

                        Into my heart an air that kills
                        From yon far country blows:
                        What are those blue remembered hills,
                        What spires, what farms are those?

                        That is the land of lost content,
                        I see it shining plain,
                        The happy highways where I went
                        And cannot come again.

                          i never thought id have such a problem to just figure this simple thing out.
                          I did everything right........even the little DDT file works perfectly (it has the "uruguay" with the check mark and everything")

                          I turn on a "Middle Database" game.....put Argentine league (DIV 1 Only) .....find a Uruguayan player...............but the Damn little "MANAGE TEAM" Still doesnt appear.

                          I feel like **** just for wasting your time guys. I came from work today all hyped that im finally gonna do this......no luck.

                          Doubt theres anything else i could try.

                          thanks again guys.

                            The only thing you can do now is check if the ddt did actually work, using CM Scout 3.10 (available at www.nygreen.net) to analyse a game you started with the ddt active:

                            1. load up the game in CM Scout after you saved it in CM 03/04
                            2. search for players with Uruguay as nationality
                            3. see if the number you find is 1415, as it should be.




                            If it is 1415 players you find, I'm completely out of options; if it isn't, make sure the code in the ddt is exactly (including quotation marks) "RETAIN_NATION_PLAYERS" "Uruguay"

                              Selecting large database might help too. Through that way there will be more players in you db.

                              But if you have a slow computer I don't recommend it.
