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.

Cheers!

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.

Cheers!

hey @NaFeR , when we could expect new updated version of your mod ?
Is it possible to combine and play your mod and beta990 Career Mod ? Maybe this question sounds stupid, but I haven't yet tried CG File Explorer so I don't how it works.

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.

Good luck!

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.

Hello everyone,

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.

Thank you!

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.

Cheers!

PS: Donovan and Forlán are in the game, they play in León FC and Kitchee SC respectively lol.

@NaFeR, how do you import these kits using FIP 3.0 with CGFE?

Thanks for your time.

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.

Cheers!

@NaFeR , are there any modifications done to player ratings in your patch?

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.

Cheers!

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.

If you edit and import a new db into CGFE, you have to create a whole new squads save file in-game for that specific db. The old save file will not work.

Okay, I see NaFeR already answered this.

Do you mean that I have to add a player into DB (Larsson ID: 52241) and I add this player into the Squad file as well?

This could be great if only have to add the player than I like and use the player that already are

No. You have already added that player to the db tables. Once you import that edited db back into the game using CGFE, he is now in the game. No other edits are needed. Just start a game, go into Edit Teams and hit Reset All Squads, and that is it.

Whenever I edit/import the db, I first delete all old squad saves before starting the game. Then I don't have to Reset. The new db file is now the default squads, and it loads automatically.

I would like to include real minifaces of player icons that I Will add into WC. I have thought about choosing a player with a miniface that I do not want to use, changing the name and statistics and importing a new image .

My question is how to importante the new image of the player?, I do not know if I have to change it directly in GC file explorer

I can help you with that, but did you get the other issue resolved yet or not?

Thank you very much for answering, you are great.

What I wanted to say is that I would like to add players in the "IconsFIP B" squad file that is already created (all that are more Larsson, Robbie Keane .....) and use it in the FIP, and I do not know if it is possible .

Okay, so the IconsFIP B squad save is NOT the default db in the game. I get it now. Yes, there is a way of using that squad save with the players you want to add to it. I will explain in a few minutes.

Adding minifaces/photos: Use the CGFE DA/CM tool to browse for minifaces/photos you want to use. Export them to your desktop. Open CGFE Legacy Files/data/ui/imgAssets/heads (base db) or heads_wc (wc db). Locate the ID of the player you want to add a miniface/photo to, then right-click to import the image from your desktop. There is also a set of youthheads rendered faces you can use, I think they look pretty good.

Yes, it is probably possible. Or it should be, I have done this with other squad saves and it worked. I just don't know for sure if NaFeR's squad save can be edited this way, but we can find out. You have to use the Moddingway Converter method. There is a tutorial:

http://www.soccergaming.com/index.php?threads/db-editing-tutorials-tips-and-tricks.6459905/

This is how it works: you convert the IconsFIP B squad save into a set of db tables. You then edit the players table, the teamplayerlinks table, and the editedplayernames table if you have used that. you then import those 3 tables into NaFeR's default FIP db. I cannot guarantee it will work because it's not my db. But like I said, it might work and is worth a try.

Two PROBLEMS: 1. Using the Moddingway tool causes a problem with the converted tables. It dumps a bunch of fake 0 values into the table. These all have to be found and deleted. It's not hard to do, but if you haven't done this before, it can be a bit complicated. And 2. You have to set up the Converter first with all new files, before it will work. That's also a bit complicated.

My converter is already all set up, and I know how to quickly remove those fake 0 values. So I will download NaFeR's mod. I will extract those three tables and remove the fake 0 values. If I am able to do all that, I will upload those 3 tables to Mediafire and post a link. After that, it's up to you to edit the tables and add them to NaFeR's default FIP db.

Lucky everybody in my house went on holidays and I have nothing to do for the next week!

Ok, thanks. I think that I understood and I will try It.

At the moment, I chance the wc DB un the FIP, I have added the icons and leyends (suker, Ibrahimovic, Henry, Larsson, Villa.....) into the world Cup mode. This is good becouse I can use the FIP and the IconsFIP B squad in carreer Mode and other tournaments.

I am still learning, so the next step is add new photos miniface and then change Squad file.

I have never done before, but modding games are very funny.

Yeah, and you're a fast learner. No fun though if you can't figure it out!

NaFeR's file will not open for me. This is the second time I downloaded it and it won't open. I never have issues with any other files, so...? If you still want me to try to extract the 3 tables from the IconsFIP B file, you need to upload the IconsFIP B save. Mediafire is quick and easy.

Thanks for your help.

I started to add the icons into FPI so I am doing It little by little, I have another mod when there is icons and leyends into WC and I can use the IconsFIP B file.

I will try to change the Squad file as you told me for learning, but at the moment is ok.

I would like to add miniface first. I can change the miniface of the player that already hace, but I cant not add a player without (davor suker have real Face un Game but dont have miniface and I dont know if is posible put miniface with the real face together)

It is possible, I posted how (a page or two back) to add mini-faces, to both the default db and wc db. Actually, might have been on the CGFE thread.

#bangus can only be able to add mini faces and kits in DDS format or can I add in PNG format?


to add and just do the old creation master method using DA?
I know that you have already written a tutorial but it is difficult for me because I do not speak English

Question #1, I do not know. Amazr's turf mod would not install in png format, that's all I know. And question #2, mini-face files will export okay using the DA, but I could not get them to import. I had to locate the dds files, right-click on each player id, then import.

Does his real face even show up in-game, did you check that? A lot of faces don't. I only edited mini-faces for player IDs that are already in the game, I can't help you with that one. Option: Edit the player silhouette EA uses for players with no mini-face. Change it to a real face, or to one of the rendered youth head faces which is what I used.

Yes, the real face show in game but with silhouette.

For example, Paolo Guerrero (ID 150525) are un the game, un the WC with Perú and in Brazilian Leage with Flamingo. He has a real face but with silhouette.

I dont kown if we can change the silhouette of Paolo Guerrero and add a miniface.
