I hope to be able to add them to 0.11; if not, they will be surely present in 0.12.[/I][/QUOTE]

PAOK (GRE) is in the original FIFA06 called as Thessaloniki

btw i just wanted to point out that i found a wierd bug wit hthe goalkeeper on Universidad Catolica, the goal keeper kti looked wierd, i should prolly post a pic of it, but i just thought id point it out, not a big deal to me, i just thought it was funny, anyway, just thought id mention it

Yep, I found this bug too. Very easy to fix anyway, just a wrong reference inside the db; it will be fixed in 0.11.

Could you add these teams: ...

I will have to add Maccabi Petah-Tikva (ISR) in 0.11, for the other teams I'll try to add them in the future. "Thessaloniki" present in the game is Aris Thessaloniki (very outdated anyway), PAOK (of Salonikki) is not present; I'll add it too.

Mmm, yes you are right.. So why did they call it Thessaloniki?! Well, then I'll have to do Aris Thessaloniki instead of PAOK.

Because PAOK is from Thessaloniki as well and it's just a way of avoiding license issues.

I guess I misunderstood: I thought the "transfer"problem was solved, but when "completing transfers", the game freezes in Career-mode.

Maybe the question has been asked already, sorry in that case, but I couldn't find it. Anyway: Is there any way that I can go on with my career and 'avoid' the freezing problem in Career-mode? I'm halfway through the season, so it would be a shame if I couldn't proceed anymore...

Thanks for the answer.

I'm studying the problem actually trying to understand what generates the problem (the high number of new players, some wrong data inside some teams or players): frankly I still don't have a solution; what you could try is 1) quick simulate the match instead of playing it, 2) edit the career.ini inside config.dat changing to 0 all transfers chances. If you don't know how to do the point 2) I can't help you anyway.

A GREAT NEW! (post available in English, Italian and Spanish, topped in first post too).

Everyone who encounters freezings with CEP should read this CAREFUL (I'll include this on next version readme and I'll stick it on the forum); this discovery belongs to the user Freedom Angel:

ENGLISH VERSION
With CEP I encountered too problems at 77% during transfermarket, and often at the end of the season Fifa crashed when the game managed the contracts renewal. Then happened that during transfermarket after a match in career I leaved the computer alone watching the TV for just 2 minutes while game was blocked at 77%: well, when I returned the game went on, working properly.
After some tests I noticed that the "freezing" lasts about 30-40 seconds and then it goes on fine. This time depends anyway from the processor and ram that you have. My computer is a P4 2.4 with 1gb of RAM and the "inactivity" time is maximum of 50 sec. So, I suggest to just wait some minutes (I think maximum 10, but maybe is much less) and then see if the game works.

ORIGINAL ITALIAN VERSION
Ciao, vi racconto cio' che e' capitato a me.
Avevo anche io un "blocco" al 77% del caricamento dei trasferimenti, e poi mi capitava anche alla fine della stagione quando premevo avanti nella schermata dei contratti che il gioco si "bloccasse". Poi e' successo una volta che dopo aver premuto avanti ho mollato un attimo il pc e ho guardato una notizia che mi interessava al tg (2 minuti): beh, tornato al pc il gioco era andato avanti.
Dopo altre prove ho notato che il tempo di "blocco" dura 30-40 secondi e poi va avanti tranquillamente.
Ora xo' questo tempo dipende anche dal pc che uno ha. Il mio e' un P4 2.4 1gb di ram e il tempo di "inattivita'" e' al max 50 sec. Io direi di fare questa prova, cioe' di aspettare qualche minuto (direi al max 10) e poi vedere che fa.

SPANISH VERSION
Yo tambien he encontrado el "bloqueo" del juego al 77% de las transferencias, luego me pasaba que tambien al final de la carrera de entrenador, al momento de renovar los contractos, el juego se bloqueaba. Me ha pasado pero que una vez, despues de estar bloqueado como siempre pasaba el Fifa con la CEP, he dejado 2 minutos la computador para ver una noticia en TV, y pues cuando me regrese el juego ya funcionaba y habia terminado las transferencias.
Despues de otras pruebas he visto que el tiempo de "bloqueo" dura 30-40 segundos y luego va adelante tranquilo. Ahora pero este tiempo depende tambien de la potencia de la computadora que uno tiene: mi computadora es un P4 2.4 con un 1gb de RAM y el tiempo de "inactividad" es maximo de 50 segundos. Yo digo entonces de hacer esta prueba, de esperar unos minutos (maximo 10, pero creo mucho menso) y ver si el juego funciona.

So, the "problem" was the the CPU needs more time to manage such much more players (5000+), BUT it is able to do it! Just needs time, depending on the power of the processor. I will keep testing this solution, anyway I have to confess that this is a GREAT new, that unleashes great horizons for CEP future.
What you can do to improve the time the CPU needs to manage the transfers, the contract renewals etc is the following:

1) close all the applications running while you are playing Fifa
2) with the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+CANC) search for Fifa06.exe in Processes, right click and set priority to "High"

CONSIDERAZIONI DI OCKHAM - ITA
Quindi, il "problema" era che la CPU ha bisogno di più tempo per gestire così tanti giocatori aggiuntivi (5000+), MA è in grado di farlo! Ha soltanto bisogno di tempo, dipendendo sulla potenza del processore. Continuerò a testare questa soluzione, tuttavia devo confessare che questa è una GRANDE notizia, che apre grandi orizzonti per il futuro della CEP.
Quello che potete fare per migliorare il tempo di cui la CPU ha bisogno per gestire i trasferimenti, il rinnovo dei contratti etc. è il seguente:

1) chiudere tutte le applicazioni che stanno girando mentre giocate a Fifa
2) con il Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+CANC) cercate Fifa06.exe in Processi, fate tasto destro su di esso e settate la priorità su "Alta"

CONSIDERACIONES DE OCKHAM - ESP
Bueno, el "problema" era entonces que la CPU necesita mas tiempo para manejar todos estos jugadores nuevos (5000+), PERO es capaz de hacerlo! Solamente necesita tiempo, dependiendo de la potencia de la computadora. Voy a seguir haciendo pruebas con esta solucion, pero tengo que admitir que esta es una GRANDE noticia, que apre grandes horizontes para el future de la CEP.
Lo que pueden hacer ustedes para mejorar el tiempo que la CPU necesita para manejar transferencias, renovamiento de contractos etc. es lo que sigue:

1) cerrar todas las applicaciones que estan activas mientras juegan a Fifa
2) con el Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+CANC) encontren Fifa06.exe en Processes, hacen right-click y imposten la prioridad en "High" (alta)

That is great news! I had a similar freezing problem before I even used CEP when I added new zdatas of my own (containing hundreds of adboards and other graphics) but this happened when Fifa06 started. I solved this freezing problem by running fatGUI.exe and rebuilding my fifa.fat file, fatgui.exe will give errors when some files appear more than once in one or more zdatas, when I removed the double files, and then rebuilded everything with fatbhbuilder, I never had the freezing problem again (I guess the same problem will happen to people who use the big kits patch who makes additional zdatas too)

I'll try to use fatgui.exe too after CEP installation maybe to optimize more how the game manages the resources.

I don't know if it will work for the freezing in career mode, but it's definitely worth a try! I remember when I had the other freezing problem, even the sound stopped, so I thought my pc was blocked, but I went to get a coffee and when I came back it had resumed loading the game, so when people encounter a similar thing try to go away a few mins from the pc to give it time to load everything, sometimes it helps!

Hey :)
I just wanted to say thanks in name of all the Portuguese FifaFans for this amazing patch.

I am head master of FifaZone.org and i am informing all the Portuguese Community about this patch.
See for example:. Visit news

Please keep up the good work :)

----------------
One Question
Is there any problem installing the new version of the patch over the last one?
Or does it need a "clean" Fifa 06 ?

Honesty, I still think there's a glitch or something in the database. I had a freeze problem in one of my patches for 2005. With similar symtoms, freezes, then after a while it continues. I fixed it by reimporting all the data into a new original database. Of course they didn't have transfers in 2005, but I'm just explaining the type of symptom was similar. freeze for a while, then continue. But who know what's causing it.

One thing to try is to see if you have the same number of players in table players'write as there are in table players. that was giving me the problem in my patch i'm making now. But it was hard to figure that out. Something you might want to check out though.

New balls such as World cup 2006 ball will add in version0.11?

Pes5 can offer selecting ball in game setting, can Fifa06 add "selecting ball in game setting" ?

gamepad buttons setting can = Pes5?

For example, when I change player , I press L1 button in Pes5 . However, I press "2" button in Fifa06. "2" button includes cross the ball and change player .
Pes5 press "2" button only cross the ball.

Fifa06 can change gamepad button setting = Pes5 setting?
It is difficult to fix?

i just realized a few problems actually.


um in the teams.ini file that KitRaptor uses,,there are a few issues


uum there is no Fiorentina listed
Fiorentina's ID (110374) is being used by Vicenza if u look up Vicenza in KitRaptor
Salernitana is using (110373) but shows Vicenza's kits in Kit Raptor

and in CC06 Vicenza had Salernitana's Logo...hmm..wats going on??

Yep Donovan, there is a way to check differences between playerwrite and players, and I'll check before packing the 0.11, anyway I'm so delighted by the discovery that CPU just needs time (and it's not a lot, for me it's 30 seconds with a P4 3.2) :D

Isaac: the things you write are not editable for a patch.

Soliditalstud: I will check this about teams.ini, BUT consider that if you are using other patches regarding italian league, the CEP is not compatible with them. About CC06: you can't use it with CEP, sorry, it's still so buggy that it gives a lot of error.

Dear OckHAM,
The CC is not so buggy as you want to think...It just cannot read the new z-data of your patch, but maybe a next version will be able to do that.
I have been a tester for the CC and it works very fine for me. I have spent hours and hours to track the bugs and I think that the CC version is good.
There are no major bugs in it if you know how to use it, but like every editing program it can corrupt the files sometimes. ( keep also in mind , that there are so many comp configurations that you cannot ask for a program or a patch to function 100% perfect )
If you know what files to back up, nothing wrong can happen
Chau is just like you and so I am too , a passionate guy who try to make the fifa better, so maybe you should make less critics and just consider that CC works fine for other people.
Last but not least, you should check your database ...there are some duplicate players in it... like Akinfeev, Ignashevitch etc who were already in the database ( national teams )...in this case Russia.
I don't think this can cause problems because they have different id numbers but it could lead to confusion in case of transfering them.
When you make a big patch as yours, every little detail is important and I know what I'm talking about ;)

Dear Jomi,
these phrases:

It just cannot read the new z-data of your patch
like every editing program it can corrupt the files sometimes

means for me that CC is, as I wrote, "STILL" buggy: it gives bugs if you use the CEP. I'm sure it's a wonderful program to edit an original and fresh Fifa 2006, but if you use this program together with patches (and I think every user of Fifa likes to have patches, not just mine), it can corrupt game files. If you want I can call CC not "buggy" but "incompatible with CEP", the concept remains: if you want use CEP you can't use CC, that's simple, and because this is the CEP thread I just want to point this, because many people requested my help to discover at the end they were using CC.

And about:

Last but not least, you should check your database ...there are some duplicate players in it... like Akinfeev, Ignashevitch etc who were already in the database ( national teams )...in this case Russia.

I'll check of course, thanks for the segnalation, but national teams players that are not in clubs, don't go in transfermarket, so really it's not a problem.

When you make a big patch as yours, every little detail is important and I know what I'm talking about

I have to do all the CEP work alone, and I still don't have testers. I'm sure the CC has not been realized by a single person and had more testers than a single author. So thanks for the advice man, very precious, if you can send me some tester I'd be happy to use them ;)
