The CM08 thread

I have the same problem as above and not being able to save anything at all - ie changed team rosters, created players or players that have been transferred between clubs. For example, creating Ricardo Gardner for Bolton and transferring Manuel Fernandes from Everton to Valencia. The program appears to save the changes but when you play the game no changes have taken place.
Please advise Rinaldo.

Ok,after a couple of probs i can finally say what's up with me and CM08. :P
I've imported some flags and a couple of faces.So far,so good.
Problems:The stadium name thing that Rinaldo allready pointed out.
Another weird problem is that the game kinda stutters.I tried it again without CM08 and it was fine.The most weird thing is that today it stuttered for awhile and then it was going normal. O_o

(no,it's not my computer or anything,i can guarantee that ;) )

Anyway,i have to thank ya again Rinaldo for all your work AND i love the program's layout. (Y)

EDIT:Oh,i forgot to ask a kinda silly question.The "expand database" button is to make more room for patches etc?

As lordspawn said, I encountered issues on formation editing as well.
Speaking of specific formation schemes (those relating to specific teams), when you try to change a player role and save the modification, then reloading the database you won't find that modification saved.

Answer to some selected questions.

Bugs reported and verified:
1) Adboards are imported as flags.
2) Tactical awareness is not available in the player skills
3) Cannot access the world league.
4) Missed stadium name

Information about how CM08 works:
I) Players are not automatically created when creating a team, this is a design choice.
II) When mporting patches from 07 the kits are not imported because they are in a format incompatible with FIFA 08.
III) Before to import the texture of a face you MUST add a head model for that player, otherwise CM08 supposes that you are trying to modify the generic textures.


I need more details about the following points:
A) Problems during patch creation

If you don't find here an answer to your question please post it again adding more details.

Beta 2 will be released tomorrow evening.
Yes, new beta version today.

I'm also having probs with the GK feature...for example...You can't add a GK to Derby..It always stays generic as was mentioned..if the team has a GK in game already it can be updated,but if you have to add the GK it won't handle that function....I'm not sure if you added this to your bug list Rinaldo.

Ive just tested the program and looks really great. I could even transfer all my created teams and players from fifa 07 and it works amazing. I never believed it could be done and so easily. However, since nothing its perfect in this world, i did find a problem. The imported kits dont show up in the game, at least not completely, because on the "edit player" screen in game, the kit appears though with some parts missing and saying "texture file missing" but most of the kit appears. However, in a match, the kit doesnt show up at all.

I know that fifa 07 and 08 kits are not compatible, so i adapted the old file into the new one (but since both are the same size and format, something should show up even if using the old file) and imported it with CM08. Everything seems to be alright there, but not in game. The ball for the team doesnt appear either, neither on CM08 nor in game. Is it a bug of the program?

An update about the Beta 2 version.

Bugs reported and verified (hopefuly fixed in beta 2)
1) Adboards are imported as flags.
2) Tactical awareness is not available in the player skills
3) Cannot access the world league.
4) Missed stadium name
5) Cannot create new kits but only update existing ones
6) Team formation page does not work properly if you start with some empty positions in the field.
7) Crash due to a player accessory value.

Information about how CM08 works:
I) Players are not automatically created when creating a team, this is a design choice.
II) When mporting patches from 07 the kits are not imported because they are in a format incompatible with FIFA 08.
III) Before to import the texture of a face you MUST add a head model for that player, otherwise CM08 supposes that you are trying to modify the generic textures.
IV) You cannot import a cmp generated with CM08 into CM07.
V) A speed/memory optimization will be done at the end of the Beta phase.
VI) As a root folder you have to select the FIFA 08 folder (not the data), a wrong root folder will result in the fifa.fa not found messsage.
VII) Kit can be saved as 512 x512, 768x768 and 1024x1024. 512 and 1024 formats generate also mipmaps. 768 does not.
VIII) 3D may not work with some graphic cards. I am looking to add an option in order to render 3D by software, not sure it is feasible.


I was not able to reproduce the following problems and I need more details about them
A) Problems during patch creation: which patch are you trying to create ? Let me have an example.
B) Body size: maybe the mapping of numeric values in the description is wrong. Please figure out the right association and I will fix it.
C) Player nationality not shown. I can't see the problem, please show me an example.
D) Boots bitmap offset. I can't see the problem, please show me an example.

Please make the examples starting from a clean Fifa.db so I can reproduce them.

If you don't find here an answer to your question please post it again adding more details.

Beta 2 will be released this evening.

Hi rinaldo,

about this: "When importing patches from 07 the kits are not imported because they are in a format incompatible with FIFA 08."

i know that, but is it possible to import the kit manually through CM08? or its that we should not import teams from fifa 07?

Thanks.

Do NOT give me Upton Park stadium.
Great work Rinaldo (Y)

Can somebody help me solve these problems

1) I installed a stadium cmp (Upton Park for West Ham) and it installs as 'stadium I.D. 2' - the stadium works fine but when i play in game, the commentators always refer to the stadium as 'The Bernabeu' (home of Real Madrid) Obviously this is incorrect - is there any way of stopping them calling the stadium this?

2) I also installed a face made by Santiago - the face texture works fine but the hair comes up in game as a 'missing texture'. How do i solve this problem?

Any suggestions on how to solve these problems would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks in advance,
<carrick>

Great to hear the fixes!:shades:

I noticed another Bug with banner-importing.
I imported the 6 2GF Flags correctly unchecked the box for generic flags and also pressed the "save" button. In game it shows me generic flags?

I also noticed a error message when creating a new league. Don't know what it is about...:confused:

Problems during patch creation, an example : Create patch Serie B italia. "Error: 10005 Unable to complete the exporting operation from a zdata archive" all time.
Is the same error with patch creation : Teams, Leagues, etc.

Thank you so much Rinaldo for your work and your time.
