Yes I am using the Brazilian version, I didn't realize that made the career mode start in 2018, thanks. Still, I've always had the issue where if I change the start year in career mode I won't be able to play the World Cup anymore, it simply doesn't show up in 2022 and on. I remember Ariel of moddingway saying something about the tournaments having to be adjusted or something like that but I never knew what exactly to change. Do you have any idea?
Thanks you for your time and keep up the great work!
Yes, if you use the brazilian version, the career mode will start in 2018 (January 2018 in "calendar year" leagues, july 2018 in "european style" leagues). If you start the career in a "calendar year" league, you won't have that issue.
Anyway, yeah, I'll take care about that issue, because in a future 2018/19 season update, career mode will start in july 2018, so I will adjust the initial date of international tournaments.
I'm playing with Origin online but basically I'm used to play the Career standalone mode.
I don't play online so why people or EA should bother if I use a modified DB?
I think that at least you don't play online modes (FUT, Seasons, etc) your account should be ok.
There will be a new version in a couple of days, with new national teams and new leagues. Then, I will start to update the database to 2018/19 season.
It's possible to combine both mods, you have to import the edited files in CGFE. If you need help, send me a PM.
Got the patch working! Did a clean reinstall of Windows (i needed one for a long time anyway) and now everything works as intended. I wanted to touch on that "updated rosters" debate. Can't you just do it in-game from Edit Teams menu? You don't HAVE to use editor do you?
Great! Yeah, you can make transfers ingame (in Edit teams menu). Also, if you know how to edit the database with DBM, you can use it too.
The first thing is to congratulate you for the great work done, the patch is excellent.
As I have read, a new update will be released later, and if it helps, I have detected that some players are missing icons / legends that I think have not been commented:
- Inside the file of FUT icons missing to include Henrik Larsson (ID: 52241), appears in the game.
- Inside the file other legends, there are some classics that do appear in other patches and I understand that they could also include: Donovan, Lalas, Anelka, Robbie Keane, Duff, Given, Best, Gudjhonsen, Futre, Pauleta, Forlan, Cisse, Robinho . I do not know if there will be any more.
These players are in the database and I have tried to extract them, but it does not let me include them because you can not make modifications in the patch. It would also be nice to include players, with a similar generic face, like Batistuta, Zidane, Romario, Raúl Gonzalez ...
I hope my suggestions help.
Yes, I have added those players, but I had to remove them because the two Classic XI teams reached the limit (a team can only contain 52 players). I will add those missing players in the alternative squad file with Icons, so those players will be in Free Agents.
PS: Donovan and Forlán are in the game, they play in León FC and Kitchee SC respectively lol.
You have to import them via CGFE. The process has been explained, check the official thread of the application to know how to do it.
No, we use the EA database for existing players.
After installing this mod, are the changes made to the locale.ini not applied?
No, you have to reimport your edited locale.ini with CGFE.
@NaFeR Some referees in Greek League have grey skin coloured hands and legs but their face is totally fine. Here's an example of an assistant referee : https://imgur.com/a/EQmYTh2. It's not all of them, like the referee in this match didn't have this problem but the assistants did. Thanks for your time and effort you put in the mod.
Thank you for reporting that, the issue will be fixed in the next update.
All players have almost the same boots,black and yellow,is it possible to diversify them?
I will try to assign specific boots to all the players.
Maybe I am doing something wrong. I have edited the FIP DB without problem and I check that there is only one id player, but I can't select the “IconsFIP B” squad file after that.
If you have modified the database, the squads file won't work anymore. Those squads file are only compatible with the "original" FIP database.
