Christ on a bike!!! What on earth does your initfs_Win32 file have in it for gameplay?

I watch most of the time CPU vs CPU and with this working now for me, its gameplay from ANOTHER PLANET.

Seriously, it is better than i had it on previous EA .exe with your detailed UI modding tool just changing of course purely the locale.ini.

Whatever you have done, which might be related to removing the Dynamic Difficulty, but more seems like AI being more intelligent on the ball well the AI are now organic as Feck, unbelievable, tricks being shown more too, so unpredictable!

So what is in the initfs_Win32 you have changed to create this monster gameplay patch?

Excites me to try Volta again now too as I noticed as I mentioned before that Volta takes a direct influence to slider settings from the main game, so possibly it will be changed with these changes you have modded into the main game gameplay.

PaulV2K4...........well done that man!!

Hello, nice work but I've sees some problems.

I was trying to play career mode with this mode in Polish Ekstraklasa and there are two easy possibilites to earn money.

1st - My transfer budget is about 4$ mln, and almost every player from youth academy is worth about 500k. After 1 month with 3 scouts I can earn 3mln $ very easily.

2nd - Free agents still come to my club very easily and I can sold them in next tranfer widnow with realy nice profit.

Cheers

The mod will certainly slow the game down during the initial loading and transfer window.

The fatigue issue has been rectified in 1.4.2. :)

Thanks for this Paul - I had a strange issue with this today whereby Replays did not work. It is like the Camera was trying to do the replay but the players on the pitch weren't so you end up getting loads of out of focus camera work instead of the in-game replays. This also carried over into the post-match replays, where the camera basically just moves around an empty pitch.

Also, at the end of the game the game essentially freezes before getting the menu's, music still playing but no option to go back or forwards etc, just freezes with the background.

Weren't we supposed to download this editor from your Patreon once you release it to the public? Anyway, I opened it, picked FIFA 20 and clicked "select" and it asked me for an "encryption key". I searched the Frosty site and this topic, but couldn't find anything. Later, I tried to apply your career mod without the key and it gave me an error. The worst part is that now whenever I click FIFA 20, this error message appears, I don't even get a chance to insert this encryption key! Could you please tell me what is going on and write a step-by-step tutorial on how to apply your career mod patch?

Paul24, I'm not as advanced as Dazzer169. I do not know how to use tools for modding.
With your new locale.ini I did not see any changes in the game CPUvCPU. In the match Russia-Scotland -0:1 teams beat on goal 1-4 times and scored 0-1 goals. Maybe I installed something wrong, but with your Mods and Patch folders, the game does not start. So I only replaced the original locale.ini. Isn't that enough? Tell me what to do? Thanks.

PaulV2K4 updated the download file to include the cryptbase.dll file which wasnt in the zip file to start with.

See if you have this in the zip you downloaded, if not, go back and re-download it where he has updated the zip file.

I had the same as you, couldn't use the Mods and Patch contents (they both contain an identical initfs_Win32 file), of which the game wouldn't start until I copied this cryptbase.dll file into the root of the FIFA20 folder.

Check it out again Andrey.

PaulV2K4 and dazzer169,thanks! I rewrote the second Mod option with an updated download file. Mod starts. The question remained that in FIFA16 cvv2k4's gameplay in CPUvCPU mode (time 4 minutes) at the Legend level, teams struck 15-30 blows together and scored up to 10 goals together. And now players often pass the ball across the field or back, few aggravations and strikes directly towards the goal I tried to replace locale.ini from FIFA 16 to FIFA 20, but the game did not start What can be done to make players play as actively as in FIFA16?

Of course FIFA 16's files won't work in FIFA 20. There's been a completely new engine since FIFA 17. That's 4 years ago!

Maybe *SOME* of the strings within that FIFA 16 locale.ini file *MAY* work in FIFA 20's. But you'd have to patiently try them out, almost one by one.

I made new configurations and wondered why my own player was put on the "cheat chain" after a few games ?? Then I realized that the reason was this mod. I play all my games myself. No thanks for this mod!

Amazing stuff Paul! Really, hats off!

One question:
Is there any way to slow the gameplay down via Locale.ini?
Specially the passing speed and the overall pace?.

Google's translation was wrong! I was playing CAREER PLAYER and the player I was doing was moved out of the lineup, even though it was bad and nothing was wrong!
Without your mod, it won't happen !!

Hope this translation is correct?
