Adding training kits?

I've created a new team using Creation Centre; I've been very careful about everything along every step of the way, adding in kits using CC (as Kit Raptor doesn't display created teams), rebuilding the FAT and BH files every time something new is added, and testing things at every step so that I can be sure nothing goes wrong. After creating the team in Rest Of World, and then swapping them into the Premiership, everything has worked absolutely fine.

But I've attempted to add a training kit to them recently, and I just can't get it to work. I used Creation Centre, added the kit, set up all the details for it (I wanted names on the back of the shirts, numbers on the front) and saved my data - again being careful to rebuild the FAT and BH. When I go into the game and start a training session, however, it doesn't work - the team just wears the generic all-white kit with orange bibs, with no names and numbers or anything.

Does anyone know, then, how to enable training kits for a team that doesn't already have them? Is it possible, even? Or is there something else I have to do in order to enable the kit?

try adding the team in teams.ini in the data folder, your first team should be

"120001","name of your team"

You can now add home, away and gk kits with kits raptor

To be able to add third and training kits you need to open the config.dat in your fifa root directory with big gui, extract common.ini file and edit it, you need to add a line KIT120001 = 1 in the right section (can't remember the name by heart sorry) to activate your third kit and training kit but only after you created and imported them into CC first, else they won't appear ingame at all, you get the missing texture red and green stuff or your game simply crashes, that's how it works for me.

edit : you need to do this for every team you import ! I have 112 atm running fine :)

Thanks for the info! I'll give that a go, although I'll have to get Big GUI first!

So... will adding the KIT120001 = 1 line automatically enable a third kit as well as a training kit? (*hurries off to make a third kit ;) *)

Big Gui is a easy program to use, just don't forget to take a backup of your zdata files (containing the graphics) and your config.dat file before you start editing and you should be good!

As for the adding the line, yes it should, but you have to enable (add) them first in CC05, import them in there first (1GK), add the team to your team.ini file, extract the common.ini from your config.dat file, add the line, reimport the common.ini, rebuild the dat file and then import them with Kit Raptor, you should even be able to preview the kits in there before you launch the game.

In the unlikely event that the kit raptor gives a drc.exe error, rebuild your fat and bh files with fatgui and you should be good.

P.S. : 120001 is the team_id of the first new team you created with CC, you can verify this in the properties tab of the team inside CC, the second team is 120002 and so on. (you have to add lines in team.ini and common.ini for each you add and want third and training kits enabled for, however don't forget to create also a mini kit for your third kit to be selectable ingame!)

So... what is Big GUI, and where do I get it? I've seen it mentioned in places, but nowhere for download. Is it the same as Big Project, or what?

BIG GUI is like an explorer prog for your big files, it can also open the config.dat file where all the interesting files are hidden like the common.ini, career.ini, ai.ini ect just do a google search you should be able to find it somewhere. (it's not the same as big project)

Right, I've found a version of BigGUI - it's v0.42r3. As it looks to have been designed for Fifa 2003, I just want to check - it's safe to use with 2005, right?

(sorry 'bout the stupid questions, I just don't want to screw up my data and have to ask even MORE stupid questions! ;) )

Hmmmmmmmmm. Well, I followed all the steps, and the third kit is working absolutely fine... but the Training kit won't. I created it in CC, added the relevant info to the common.ini, imported it again in Kit Raptor... but it still gives me the generic white one. Strange. I'd have thought that if something had gone wrong along the way, then neither the training kit NOR the third one would work. The fact that the third one does and the training one doesn't... that's a bit weird...

Yes, that's strange, does the preview mode of kitraptor work with the training kit or do you see the white one also?

Nah, I get the white one as well. The third kit, meanwhile, previews just fine. And when I "Export" the training kit in Kit Raptor, it brings up the one I put in there...
