CEP Patch

Hi Steve. Just a question, does your analyser is compatible with the CEP patch released by Darkvajo? (expanded and heavily modified database). I've just installed the patch and I started a new manager mode season, but I've got some error messages after running the analyser.

Thanks in advance, sorry to bother.
Cheers(Y)

As long as you've installed the update to take FF10DUMP to v1.03.08, which in your case you would have been notified of via an email on 5th May, then the expanded database will be no problem. Beyond that any valid FIFA.DB should be fine.

Pretty much any CM modified database generates a large number of messages but it really depends on exactly what you are seeing as to whether or not those messages are important. Feel free to set Output to normal mode, run an analysis, save the output and email it to me for comment (since I suspect it will be much too big to include in a forum post).

Hi Steve,
All is working fine, the fix and the analyser.
This is a very handy tool. Thank you for sharing.

i have this Message: Fifa 10 program path does not contain game executable
There is a sanity check in my code that tries to make sure that the FIFA 10 directory points at the right structure, which it does by checking for FIFA10.EXE in that directory rather than digging into it for other files that are actually read by FF10DUMP.

Does the path to the game in the Options dialog point to the correct directory for the game?? Does that directory contain a fifa10.exe?? If the answer to your dilemma is not obvious from the responses to those questions, then please post a screenshot of the Options dialog and a Windows Explorer display of the contents of the directory (one screenshot or two, your choice)

Steve, may I also have access to the said program?

I'll send you a PM as well with my Email add.

Thanks for the great work.


BTW, on the subject matter of the Team Chemistry bug, does it affect the outcome/play
of the team as a whole if I run the team through quick sims?

I ask because which ever team I'm managing that has about the same skill levels or better (ATT, MID, DEF)
in comparison to Man Utd, never manages to beat them; while having Team chemistry stuck on 60.
Maybe it is a coincidence, or maybe team chemistry does play a role in the outcome of the game if
you run quick sim?

Thanks.



Fix for Team Experience bug in Manager Mode

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Folks,

I have created and tested a fix for this issue, which involves correcting the metadata in FIFA.DB and updating existing manager mode saved game files to adjust the playerstats entries accordingly.

However, before I go through the effort of wrapping this up in the EAFFAnalyser GUI and releasing it for public consumption I'd like to gauge how much interest there is in such a fix. For myself I am now all sorted out using the command line version of my dump program for FIFA 10, so I have no need to do anything further, but if there are others out there who'd like such a fix then I will make the effort to update EAFFAnalyser and the associated documentation.

Please let me know, either by posting here or by sending an email (click on my name in the LH column and you can send an email that way), if you'd like a fix for the team experience bug and also whether or not you'd be willing to try the beta version of EAFFAnalyser or would prefer to wait for the release version.

Received. As my reply to your PM said, check your inbox and let me know how it goes

I've no idea I'm afraid. When I played FIFA 10 (and indeed every other version) I always played the matches on the pitch, otherwise I might as well have bought Football Manager, which my son assures me is a much better management sim.

Glad to see you finally found the right place :) Check your inbox and let me know how you get on

its the problem the unlimited Fat exe ?
If that executable is not called FIFA10.EXE then yes. To work around the issue open a command line window, change to the FIFA 10 program directory and then use an echo command to create an empty fifa10.exe file, something like this (although this example used JPSoft's Take Command rather than Microsoft's CMD, hence the CD changing drive as well as directory):

In other words, all my code is after is for the file to exist, it doesn't have to be the real FIFA 10 executable ;)

hello Steve, i heard about your fantastic tool eaffanalyser.
I can i get one, because my Fifa10 crashes after one season in manager-/careermode.
Please send to: [email protected]

Thanks a lot!

Does EAFFanalyser solve the problem of FIFA10 crashing in manager mode after 1st season?

How? I have the program all right but could someone give a hint how is it done if it repairs the problem?

My apologies for the slight delay, but I've not actually been on this site since the middle of November, and since I didn't receive a copy of FIFA 11 as a present it is highly unlikely that I will be back with any regularity over the coming months. If you'd like to make contact regarding EAFFAnalyser either email the support address or drop me a PM here (as they get forwarded to the same address).

Anyone that has requested EAFFAnalyser, either here or via PM/email should have received the details by now, so please let me know if you feel you've been missed.

If the crash occurs between the last game of a season and returning to the manager mode main menu, then not directly, no. If you have modified your database then there are so many ways that that modified data could be wrong that it is difficult to say whether or not EAFFAnalyser (or more accurately, the underlying dump program FF10DUMP) will identify the particular fault or indeed whether or not you'll be able to find that particular message amongst the hundreds or thousands of others that spout forth for a modified database. Even then, you will need to be able to correct the problem yourself because my code only fixes errors introduced by the game itself (since I don't modify my version of FIFA at all - other than official patches - then it is unlikely that it ever will).

If the crash occurs immediately you click on Next Match for the first game of a new season, then that is almost certainly caused by having too many players on your squad and my code can fix that directly.

GShock said:

As I said above, it almost certainly won't repair the issue unless it is one of those listed in the update dialog in the GUI. The best you can do is run EAFFAnalyser in normal output mode, with a large Max. Errors value (which is the immediate issue with the output you sent me via PM, BTW) and then check through the error messages. However, some of them aren't going to mean much to you and (since virtually every modified database I've ever seen has hundreds of such messages) many of them won't cause the game any problems. The ones that are most likely to are those regarding missing entities (especially things like stadia) and anything that mentions fixtures, RTSG values or team lookup as those are all likely not used fully until the end of the first season.

As stated many times elsewhere in this thread, you need to send me an email address - either via email or PM - so that I can add you to my list and forward on the download instructions and introductory notes.

@anyone reading this thread, please note that I don't visit these forums very often (although that may change again shortly as I will soon be taking possession of a monster of a gaming PC and have already purchased FIFA 11 in anticipation) and therefore the best way to contact me regarding my utilities is via email - just click on my name in the left hand panel next to this message and select 'Send email to StevePitts'.

Oh, and since Jatin also sent me a friend request it is worth pointing out to all and sundry that I don't make use of the 'social networking' aspects of this site, or indeed any site, and therefore please don't be offended if you get no response to (or indeed a rejection of) such a request
