Cannot Get This League To Work In Career Mode

I'm trying to create a simple Jamaican Premier league with just generic kits. Everything works in tournament mode. I cannot figure out what I am missing to get it working in the career.

Career mode does not crash if I play with a team from another league. It only crashes when I select a Jamaican team.

I put screenshots of the different pages in a google slideshow. If you have a moment, would you mind taking a look to see if you can spot something obvious that I am missing? I've been working on this for a few days now and keep coming up short.

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1qEaorctYWXh6Pihd1_ckhCAzMWng1ggualGoWSCQpcE/edit?usp=sharing

I have some specific questions.

1. Is it a problem to be creating a new country? Do I need to add the league to an existing country instead?

2. In the tournament screen, do the 'slots' matter for anything (since there is no promotion or relegation?

3. Is there a minimum roster size I need to achieve (I added a few generic players to the smallest rosters just to get the size up a little.

4. Under the rankings tab, does it matter if there is a team assigned?

5. Is there a minimum budget? Does the drop off amount matter substantially? I set the drop off to a low value.

Thanks for any help.

Rosters look fine, plenty of players.

Team data looks fine as well.

Why do you only have 7 teams in the rankings when you have 12 teams in the league ?

Quit using CM and edit the compdata texts directly.

Your issue is 7 teams in the rankings when you have 12 teams in your league.

Rankings is the standings texts in the compdata folder.

Sharing it publicly so others can see and use it for troubleshooting:

Just a reminder that 1. CM15 reorders some of the IDs.
2. It works in tournament mode.
3. all of the other leagues still work.
4. If I am playing with another team, I can view the table for this league and see that the games seem to be progressing fine.

I dropped down to just 11 games to try to rule out the possibility of a scheduling problem. I also condensed them down to one match day.

I have streamlined everything about putting together the basics of a league. My workflow has me down to about 1 day per league. This is the only thing holding me back from making lots of additional leagues. If you can spot the error, I'll make a league you or anyone else chooses on request.

If this doesn't work, I'll just release what I've done and let others try to work on it.

Looking at the schedule text I see a season that is 3 weeks long
in which each week plays a total of 1 match between 2 teams starting at 3:00 pm for 3 weeks.

Scratch my schedule as you only have num_games set to 1.

Your schedule looks alright in your latest uploaded files.

Compdata looks alright, only guess would be something in the database.

I'll look at those images again.

I had tested with Jamaican National Team both in the international league and out of it. That's most likely the difference in the internationals text.

I tested with initteams both added to and then removed from that text. Same result for both.

Regarding the database, I started with the latest updated database you posted in the sticky thread. Any reason to think that might be a cause? Jamaican league is the first thing I'm trying to add to it.

Jamaica has an assigned FIFA ID, not saying it will fix the issue but
it will at least add commentary for the team.

Arnett Gardens has 4 unnamed players, new player, player (x3).
Barbican FC has 4 unnamed players, player (x4).
Boys Town has 4 unnamed players, new player, player (x3).

Arnett Gardens has it's left free kick and left corner taker not starting, that can't
happen, either assign the role to a starter or start Phang.

Boys Town has Nethersole assigned to 4 roles and he isn't even on the squad.

Start with those issues and I'll keep looking while you test those fixes.

Humble Lions has Cousins on the bench yet he is taking free kicks directly and from the left side.

Montego Bay has Ottey taking free kicks from the bench.

You have issues with your assigned role players (FKs, PKs, Capt., etc) not being in the starting 11.

Go back and adjust all that and test and see what happens.

Thanks. I will make the Jamaica switch. For Now, I just deleted it.

It's an EA ID, I'd use it.

Make those changes and get back to the thread with the results.
