I've installed the ModdingWay patch suite and some other graphic patches (Fifa Revolution by Scouser) but I am sure they do not affect the behaviour of the game, except for graphics (kits, flags, scarves, etc.).

I don't think to have a quick start option: I've got just a multi-Language patch (my FIFA is an Italian version one but I'm used to play the English GUI and commentary version because I am a Hibernian FC fan).

My StadiumServer.exe is version 0.7.0.0 (278 Kb).

Is it the origin version u are using?
Its weird that friendlies work but careers dont.

Yes, I'm using the Origin version.

This afternoon I downloaded CheatEngine 64 (My O.S. is Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit) and I checked for the memory address FIFA uses to store the tournament ID.

I got 193F9D9C.
Is it the same address that the StadiumServer scans for the tournament ID?

If u check the address again u will find that the address will have changed as they don't use static address. The tool looks at a pointer address.

You're right mate.
I guess I'll use the stadium server to set up the home stadium for friendlies, League match and international qualifiers, then the Stadium Swappers for the tournament finals.

Sorry, mate, I give up.
When I was a kid I spent entire afternoons in programming, modding and patching FIFA for the pleasure of a "perfect" game.
Now I'm 42, and I've got so few time to spend on videogames that when I sit down on the PC all I'm going to ask is having fun, and if it's not perfect I don't give a damn.
Please don't feel offended about it.

Thanks a lot anyway for your patience and support and for all the efforts you put into this project.

just deleteing it should be fine. it doesnt install anything so u just delete the FSW folder, StadiumGBD folder and the StadiumServer.exe should so it.
you also need to remember to remove the mod.folder = Stadiumgbd line from your file loader ini.

i suspect that there is something else causing you game to crash.

ive done some testing with the moddingway patch installed and it appears that this version of the tool is not compatible with it. for some reason the trigger address that i use seems to be not used when using the moddingway patch. ill look into it.

are there any people who wish to use the stadium server along with moddingway patch? if so i may look at releasing a specific tool for that patch

Just to confirm again that the moddingway patch 2.9 and 3 ar not compatible with this version of the server. I'm looking into ways to make it, i allready have a separate tool just for the moddingway patch 90% complete

first post has been updated to include the two versions of the exe that are compatible with the moddingway 3.0 patch.

Remember when adding tournament round ids into the ini file u will need to check the db to find out what they are.
the unpatched version of fifa has the scottish cup final as 1251 whereas the id of the scottish cup final in the moddingway patch is 1274

Yesterday I installed the 3.0 AIO ModdingWay patch and downloaded the latest version of your tool. Now it works like a charm!
Thanks a lot mate for all you efforts and supports!!!

I´d tested the Stadium Server sofar since the release until now with different versions of FIFA14 (origin and cracked, modded, unmodded, with and whitout revomod), after the right setup does this tool working very well for me. This tool is in my eyes the a very good alternative, cuz u must not touch the DB and the original files in combination with the the file loader is it the best and saved solution for a perfect game with many stadium.
Last but not least u´ve no problem like shadow, lighting ect problem thx shawminator for ur work and for this tool :)

They're in data1, data\ui\game\overlays

I think each competiton uses a lot overlays, for example one can use all the 2xxx overlays, I'm not really sure how it works :p.

I did some testing last night and it looks promising. i think i may be able to assign a seperate set of overlays per tournament in both tournament and career mode, just need to code it into the tool and decide the process

If you have the exctracted strings from the game's exe file there are some parts related to overlays which could be useful. I've seen a few of those thanks to beta990 but he mentioned a while back that there were more than the few lines he managed to send me so there could be room for some interesting results...

@ sepak

I thought overlays were "region coded" ;) What I found intriguing when I first played Fifa 14 was how the game changed the colours of the overlays according to the country of the teams used in the matches and I wondered if that meant it could be possible to make the game load different textures instead of simply recolouring the same ones. Would be nice if someone figured the code for the overlays to make the game load animated images instead of standard png (for scoreboard logos, to allow animation)
