Hi Rinaldo I know its pretty late in the season as Fifa09 is just around the corner but I was just wondering if you could develop a tool to import different GK gloves for each team similar to your Armband Master tool. If it is possible & if you have time it will be very much appreciated. Thanks

This is not possible. Different armband was a "discovery" of Outsider I just did the program, but I don't know of anybody who discovered how to have different gloves.

Thanks for the awnser Rinaldo. Tell me if I divide all my files for new zdatas using the CM "specific zdata" box like this example:

zdata_44 = kits + minikits
zdata_45 = stadiums
zdata_46 = faces
zdata_47 = more faces
zdata_48 = ..........
zdata_49 = ..........

Do you think it will work fine?

Thanks again

Sure, feel free to organize your zdata as you prefere

Hi Rinaldo.
I downloaded many league patches(CMP).
now I want to install them.
but I think that the players,teams and leagues ID is the same like in other patches.
what can I do in this situation?I want to play with many leagues(Argentina,Germany 3rd,Russia,Greece,Israel).

thanks!

btw
I pushed on the "creat" option.

Start the patch importe through the Patch\Load menu, Load the cmp file. For each object in the patch (player, team league etc) select if you want to create a new one in your current FIFA database or if you want to replace an existing one. CM08 make a first choice for you based on the recognition of objects already existing in your db but you can change it as you like. You cn also choose to import only some of the objects present in the patch and you have several options about what to import of each object. Hope this can help.

Hey Rinaldo,
Maybe it's a bit to early to talk about this but now that FIFA 09 is comming, I would like to ask if you will continue you your fabulous work and make next year's FIFA playable for all of us?
Will there be a CM09 or was the CM08 the last version of CreationMaster?

Who knows ? It's too early to take a decision. Anyway there are also other good programmers like MD, Krystian82 and Luc of Fifadata that can do excellent tools.

Hi, i'm new here and i wanted to ask you something about a problem. Here it is: I wanted to create Euro 2008 league only from the group stage, i put in rest of the world, gave it a unique id and it crashes. Why? Help Please! If someone has already done a patch please give it to me.

To design a tournment is pretty difficult. Read the help carefully, browse also this thread for tips about tournament design and use a "small setps" strategy, start with something simple and check if it works, then add complexity step after step.

Difficult to say, maybe there is something missed for that league or for the team. Btw you don't need to reinstall, I suggest you make a backup copy on your hard disk of of your data folder, that's enough.

Hey!
What's the problem with Creation Master 08 1.03?I start it,it runs well,but when I click on Open Fifa 08,or anything else,it seems to start loading,and then it freezes,I can wait anytime,it won't appear.Does anybody know about this problem?Write me please!

There should be some corrupted file in your FIFA 08 that prevent CM08 to complete the loading operation. In the past it has been reported that some patches (from Bulgary) can create this deadlock in CM08. The message written in the status bar should say the last operation is trying to do (e.g. "opening database" or "loading gui files") This can help to identify the problem. Another test is to run it with a fresh installation, just to check that it works fine n this case.

Rinaldo: Thanks again for this great tool and the support you give to its users.

I added a stadium manually by creating a *.big file and putting the files in there so it would be easy to get rid of if I didn't like it, or if it crashed my game. Everything works, however - except one thing. I created the preview images and imported them with CM08 and the game crashed when I selected the stadium. I extracted a sample preview fsh file and used it to create the preview images, and imported them with CM08 and the game still crashed. When I deleted the preview images, the game worked fine, and the stadium is fine. The preview files I refer to are the small ones that you see when you select the team and it has a stadium assigned to it. Any ideas?

thanks for the help,but unfortunatelly the problem is not like that,now my Fifa is absoloutley fresh(I've just reinstalled it),and the problem still appears,it doesn't write anything,it even doesn't start to load the database I guess.Could it be a problem of the X2 processor?sometimes I notice that the game doesn't handle this processor well.

Rinaldo. CM08 currently doesn't work with 64-bit versions of .NET 2.0.

To get around this, your application needs to be compiled for 32 bit mode, so it will never be loaded in the 64 bit runtime. Visual Studio 2005 offers 3 options for "Target Platform":

x86: 32bit only
x64: 64bit only
any CPU: let .net choose

Select 'x86' for your application so that it will always be loaded in 32 bit runtime.

Is there any chance you will release another version? Thanks for this awesome program.

For anyone trying to run CM08 on a 64-bit OS with no luck, download the .NET 2.0 SDK and use coreflags to set the .exe for CM08 to 32-bit only...worked for me!

OK I'll try it(if I understand,I need only to creat the patch,and the other patches won't delete).


btw
I have a tip for you for CM09.
In CC07 was an option that copy and paste textures.
what do you think about this options in CM09(with this option we would copy our texture from photoshop,and paste on CM)?


edit:
Thanks Rinaldo!I managed to add the leagues!
my problem was that the new patch replaced the other,but I managed to make it.thanks!

Hey!
Could anybody help about my problem?I installed the CM08 on my computer,and when I click on loading Fifa08,it freezes(uses the processor around 50%,and seems to don't change for long minutes).I have a fresh Fifa 08 now,so the database shouldn't be hurt or something like that.Should it be the problem that I have an X2 processor?Could anybody help?

Keegan, I am not aware of any problem related with stadium preview. If you import an fsh it is up to you to build the fsh and be sure that it is correct, if you import a .bmp or a .png it is the CM08 that creates the .fsh for you and, in this case, it should work. Did you try both the ways ? I have no other ideas.

I think there are many people interested to this point but I do not have any 64 bit uP and I was not able to investigate it. Maybe it deserves more details on "how to do it" and you could open a separate thread to keep it clean.
