    New developments in my adventures in FIFA-modding.
    I'm trying to make a more complete national team tournament structure and, to that end, I expanded the Asian Cup, African Cup and Gold Glory Cup to have proper matches, and I also decided to create qualifiers for North America and Africa (also fixing it so each confederation will have the same number of entrants in the World Cup as IRL). However, they make my game crash if I so much as enter Manager or Tournament mode.
    I made sure to use unassigned ID numbers for these qualifiers so there would be no conflict (I used this method for continental club tournaments and that worked - it only happens with these NT tournaments) and I regenerated the files afterwards with FHL-BH, but that didn't work.
    Does anyone have any idea why this happens?

    OK but, how do I do it?
    Just looking at the files it's all Greek to me, I'm not sure which numbers are what, what will change if I add or take out something... I feel lost from looking.
    Do you know what to do, or can you link some sort of guide?

    Yeah, so, I read it all and checked against my files and I found out that the changes I make on CM16 do affect them in the ways the documents described. However, for some reason, one line in a tournament was added without a space, and that's what made the modes crash even before I could enter them. Who would've thought?
    I can enter most tournaments on Tournament Mode now (with the exception of the ones I added), but Manager's still giving me a heck of a hard time. Anyway, you've been a big help, so thanks.

    Hi mate, did you increase the number of international friendly games so that all teams are included? If you don't increase them this can cause the manager mode crash. E.g. if you have 70 national teams you will need to increase the number of teams to 70 and the games to 35. If you go beyond a certain limit you will need to increase the number of groups in friendlies to accommodate them all. Hope this helps in some way

    I did increase the number of national teams (I have 75), but I didn't know you had to also increase the number of matches - I thought they wouldn't all play at every date, and since there are always two legs over three match days in a week, the number of matches would be distributed among them throughout the week.
    It's half the number of NTs, right? In this case, since I have an odd number, do I have to make it so the total per leg is 37 or 38?
    EDIT: I decided to use both just to be sure, so for two-day legs I put 18 and 19, and on one-day legs I put 37 and 38. Except for the fact that my game won't progress beyond July 31 (which might have to do with something else actually), just the fact that I got into Manager Mode was proof that it worked. Thanks.

    Hi @Forlan10,
    Could you tell me which IDs you use for new international competitions? When I edit existing tournament - it works, but with new ID it crashes during career mode's running.

    I just used the ones that came by default: 940 for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, 950 for the Asian Cup and 960 for the African Nations Cup.
    The only IDs I created were for the continental club competitions, 1004 for AFC Champions and 1005 for CAF Champions.
    Also, check this thread and download the file there, it's very good reference.

    Thank you, Forlan10! I created a tournament with ID 940 and it works, but... only as "Interqual". With "Intercup" settings tournament doesn't appear in the game - well, that's not a big problem for me, but the problem is that there are matches, I can see fixture, but table is not visible in the game. It's one group with 12 teams. I don't know why it's not visible, any ideas?

    I am using scouser's fifa 19 converted db for 16. And i imported some new leagues in db.
    Of course tournament is crashing when i click in game, and i want to ask, what do i need to do so i can play only CUSTOM tournament? I see i need to import many tables etc stuff but i dont need tournament mod, only custom for finals.
    Thanx!

    @Forlan10 - do you remember which file this line without space was created in? :D

    It was on schedule.txt.
    Probably a glitch, though, since usually CM16 modifies the file without changing the format of the lines.

    UPDATE: I figured something out as I fiddled more.
    It's not so much that the game won't let you add more qualifiers, it's actually that there's a limit to the number of tournaments you can have in the game. And that limit is 89. Any more than that will push the last tournaments in the list to a sort of out-of-bounds state which will make them unplayable.
    Therefore, some sacrifices had to be made to fit my vision in the game: namely, I had to eliminate Ireland and Austria from the list, and I also deleted the French League Cup. I'm afraid of being forced to eliminate more tournaments, so I made it so that the African Cup of Nations and the Gold Cup would qualify for the World Cup instead.
