    I will take a look at it. What info as been added? If just new players, then editing is easy. But if new teams, new formations, new tactics etc, then it is a lot more complicated.

    Also very important regarding in-game editing and then exporting: I found that player transfers work fine, but if you try to edit formations, it corrupts the db if you then try to export tables. So I do all my team editing using the db tables, not the in-game editor. Whereas moving players from team to team, I use the in-game editor with no problems.

    Not sure what has been added/how been edited before i used this db. Thats a problem i guess.
    But what i changed is:

    - edited formations(default&custom) ingame
    - very few transfers i did and only ingame
    - created palyers ingame
    - changed the promoted/relegated teams in PL/EFL for this season + the assigned the league balls with the editor

    PS: just tried to load one of my earlier squad files with the editor , save it without changes and see if its ok but it has the same problem. Maybe im just missing something here as before i could successfully alter the db with the promotions and ball settings.

    So the first thing I noticed is the editedplayersnames table full of bogus 0 values. All those need to be removed, it's that sort of thing that is causing the player name issues. I will check a bit more.

    Sure. Players table as well, you have about 3000 bogus 0 value players in there, scroll down to the page bottom and you can see them all.

    just a quick update, i have managed to get rid of all the bogus teams in any leagues. the Danish league was filled with empty teams and a bunch of Arsenals and the Spanish league as well with empties.

    But no idea how to get rid of the 1 rated created players other than deleting them ingame. I have no idea in which table are they. Now i can delete them ingame tho as they wont cause freezing as they are not assigned to any teams.


    usint the editplayernames table i could identify my created players in the createplayers table. but what are the other players there? when i deleted those all my transfers are gone ingame.

    at the moment im halfway there...phew last time i could do this for the first time. must have been a miracle of some sort!

    Open the createplayers table, they should all be in there, just delete them.

    yes but according to their "create player id" i check the editplayernames table those are exactly the 30 players i create

    or those are the bogus ones and all the other lines in ther with real "create original player id" are the created players and the transfers? thats around 80 lines thats why im confused. or maybe there are players created with the db editor? Also ingame i have 70 bogus players there

    You confused me here. I don't know which players you created or how. But I do know this: If you create a player using the in-game editor, the created player is assigned a playerid of 200000 or more. Any player in that table with a playerid of 0, could not have been created using the in-game editor, they would not be assigned id 0. Plus no two players can have the same id.

    You also have 3000 players in the teamplayerlinks table with playerid 0. Those players all need to be deleted.

    That's easy. Make a copy, edit it, then check. If you deleted players you want to keep, go back to the original unedited.

    I have managed to remove every bogus thing from my squad file but now i have the phenomenon that if i save my squad file ingame and i try to load it the game crashes to desktop.

    [​IMG]

    Still have the original file which can be loaded but any editing ingame is doomed now.
    Still could be the 1 rated bogus players....but for me "its" a big whatever now. So annoying.

    Try this maybe: from the edited file that's corrupted, copy/paste the 4 player tables into a copy of the original file that works (players, teamplayerlinks, createplayer, and editedplayernames tables). Start with that, see if the file loads and then saves in-game. If it does, you know the issue isn't with the player edits, but with something else like with the team/formation edits you made.

    You might want to switch to the Frosty editor, it's easier and no 0 values to worry about. Also, access to dozens more db tables (requires launching the game via the editor to activate those extra tables).

    Just want throw a random comment out there. I've been editing some FIFA kits in photoshop at a micro level and I've gotta say it's pretty disappointing how lazy and messy the kit designers at EA Sports are. You guys should take a look at some of the kits in photoshop and you guys will see some errors and uneven seams and what not.
