Dear Jomi,
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 ;)

Yes I know what you feel, I was also alone when I did my roster patches the last years but I like to work alone so I don't complain :)
And you have a lot of testers, these are the guys who use your patch and post in this thread... :hump:

A GREAT NEW! 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.

It doesn't work like that 100% of the times, a shame.
I waited 1 hour, but no changes unfortunately....(With AMD Athlon 1,8 & 512 RAM).

I tested a lot of times with my CPU and 100% of the times the game goes on. Anyway a 1.8 processor can barely run normal Fifa.. what about a little update? ;)

Of course Alex, you can still play Fifa with the original teams and leagues: you don't really need 200 new teams and 4500 new players, neither all the nationals teams missing in the original fifa, south american football, World cup 2006, full Champions League, UEFA Cup and all this stuff: you can keep playing a Sochaux career, for example, with fake EFC or ECC cups (something like this): it's a matter of tastes ;)

For the others who are interested in expanding this game as never has been before, well this was not only a "cool", but a GREAT discovery. 30 secs waiting after a match, sometimes, maybe taking a cofee, I don't think it's a great problem.

What? :nape: Fifa runs ok even on a 1.1 Ghz processor with 256MB ram, how did you notice that a 1.8 ghz processor can barely run normal fifa. :S

:D :D At which detail and resolution are you playing? And what FPS do you get? Anyway this is not the right place to discuss about this: saying that a 1.1 or a 1.8 Ghz processor is enough to run Fifa doesn't need comment.

Ock, question...

Would you happen to know why the Spanish language option won't come up when you first start the game? Ok, you have clicked onto the fifa06.exe file after installing your patch. When the option comes up to select the language you want to play with, spanish doesn't come up. Since I live here in the States, usually the english and spanish options come up when first starting the game (indicated by the english flag and mexican flag for respective languages). It's pretty sad that EA did not change the flag from UK to a US flag nor changes some of the english wordings in career e-mails, and other text commentaries (ie.. neighbour for neighbor, colour for color). It just looks like they ported the UK english version right into the North American market. I know that these words and sentences could be changed by an editing tool, but it does seem to be a slap in the face for all North American (US) fans of this series. I hope you kind of understand what I am talking about. I'm here at work and I could better explain it better later. Another interesting quirk is that during gameplay, the shortened, abbreviated team name does not show up next to the score and team chemistry bar. I have my resolution set at 1280x1024x32 with referees and linesmen turned on. I could take a screenshot and post it to better explain this problem too. If you have questions about what I am trying to explain, shoot me a PM or a reply. Thanks for taking a look at these problems.

The official system requirements say that a 1.3Ghz processor is enough :P

You can change this somewhere in the game settings, it's not a glitch.

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 ;)

Actually this won't affect the game play or the transfer, it just means you can select a player twice for callup. I did this in my WC patch, because I simply don't have a lot of time to make patches lately, and to check all the players can be a pain. If ockman wants to check all the national teams and adjust, he can, but it won't affect careers at all, bc players on the national teams that aren't on a club team, I don't think can be transfered in the transfer window in career mode bc there not on a club, only the national team.

Hey Ockham, I know why I had a problem during Career mode - I imported a few teams that were not made by you and there was corrupted data in it! It messed up the db, so I exported the teams i could fix and really wanted to keep, changed the db and imported them. I'm as good as new now!

Cheers.

EA always makes FIFA very accessible to even users of an "older" system, hence even on my friends 1,5 Mhz, 256 RAM & without a video-card (only 32MB chip) the game worked just fine.
And I tried again....after 3(!!!) hours the "completing transfer"screen was still not showing signs of life, and I would find it extraordinary to blame my 1,8 processor for that :) .

I don't know if this helps locating the problem, but I mention it anyway:
This morning I wanted to try one last time, loaded my saved game once more and suddenly the completing-transfers proceeded without any delays in 3 seconds, whereas before it always frooze at that particular time! Seems like it did something different than the 10 times I tried before (at exactly the same point in my career). I don't know if it helps, but it probably shows it's not caused by an "action" that the computer does automatically 100% of the time, there is a case of "chance" here it seems! Maybe it's connected to certain players or clubs, iaw: if a specific player gets transfered the game freezes, if that player keeps being "untouched" by the game, the game will function correctly.

Anyway, good luck with the solving, it's very much appreciated.

Thanks for the help Donovan, I'm really waiting your work to be completed ;)

Solitalstud: as I wrote, CC06 is not compatible with CEP, sorry: I can't help you with this. For the teams.ini I don't know which version are you using frankly, or maybe you just downloaded and installed again kitraptor AFTER CEP installation, so now your teams.ini is overwritten. In CEP Fiorentina ID is 110374 and Vicenza is 110373: try changing the ids in your teams.ini.

Keegan: good :) As I wrote in the readme you should not modify CEP in any way to be sure it works. If you need more teams just post a request in CEP forums.

MagicaRoma: the CPU needs more time when it ACTUALLY does transfers: probably when your game doesn't freezes is because CPU just decides to don't do any transfers. I'm sorry that you have this problem but actually I don't have a better solution to this, and I'm sure that a good processor (2.6+) can support all the transfers operation with a bit of waiting. I dunno if there is something more that can be changed inside Fifa structure (maybe studying the exe behaviour) so I can just suggest you to upgrade your processor, it's not so expensive.

But can the difference between a 2.6 & a 1.8 processor really mean a difference in waiting of 40 seconds with the 2.6 processor and 3+ hours with the 1.8? It sounds unlogical to me, but if you say it's possible, you're probably right.
If so, I guess I don't have much choice....;-)

Hej Ockam,

First I want to say that I think you made a very great patch for fifa! There's just one thing I can't understand and that is: why you didn't make the Russian League as well. I'm not Russian but I think it's one of the rising competitions in Europe at the moment.. and would really like to play with a Russian team :). Well hope u don't get mad at me because im critisizing your work :$, I just would like to know why you didn't add that league :).

Russian league will be in CEP soon, probably in 0.12. Version 0.11 anyway will feature the following russian teams:

Lokomotiv Movska
CSKA Movska
Zenit Petersburg
Spartak Movska
