you must open file Game\dlc\dlc_FootballCompEng\dlc\FootballCompEng\data\compdata\settings.txt and change manualy data:

Year start 2015
Confederation Cup 2017
FIFA WC 2018
FIFA WC European Qualifiers 2016
EURO qualifiers 2018
EURO 2020
GOLDCUP CONCACAF 2015
AFC FIFA WC QUALIFIERS 2016
AFC CUP 2015
FIFA WC Qualifiers CONMEBOL 2015
COPA AMERICA 2019
Africa Cup Of Nations 2015

Additionally, set the year 2016 file cmsettings.ini

I have all this settings, but it doesn't work for me. The game crashes, but If i set calstart_year 2015 in cmsettings.ini, it doesn't crash.

@erievon, can you send me your settings.txt and cmsettings.ini, please ?

EDIT: Nevermind, all you need to do is save settings.txt manually after every edit with CM14... somehow if you have already set up manually 2020 for Euro and 2019 for Copa America and after that you make some changes in compdata via CM14, 2020 and 2019 remain in settings.txt, but the career will crash.

Hello everybody!

I try to start the game in 2014 and works, thank you!

But I have a bug: at the start, the manager's objetive is "*CM_LeagueObjetive_-1" rather "win the league title" (for example).
I am the first in the league table but I'm always below the target

Sorry for my english

EDIT: Problem solved. I change the value of SEASONOBJECTIVES at cmsettings and it work
What is the value? Im getting the same error

I know this thread is kinda old but, well... Please, anyone willing to explain a complete noob (at least in editing the DB and the competition structure) how to have the career mode start in 2018?
Fresh game, just installed. No mods and no Origin updates yet (will update the game via Origin if it's required for this to work, no problem).

I know there are some files out there that are made do it automagically, but I'd really love to learn how to do it myself.

Thank you in advance! :)

It looks like I got it! OR, at least, career mode doesn't crash when I load it and I've been able to sim a single season (plus some days of the second one) without crashes.:bouncy:

Here are the changes I made should anyone need them (taken from the vanilla FIFA 14 game): I've tried to only edit the relevant starting dates and nothing else.

[DEFAULTS]
CALSTART_YEAR = 2018

0,schedule_year_start,2018
1,schedule_year_start,2021
14,schedule_year_start,2022
71,schedule_year_start,2020
84,schedule_year_start,2020
105,schedule_year_start,2018
1377,schedule_year_start,2019
1467,schedule_year_start,2020
1470,schedule_year_start,2019
1544,schedule_year_start,2019
1547,schedule_year_start,2019
1576,schedule_year_start,2019
1697,schedule_year_start,2020

This is the post which helped me understanding what should've been done and this is the way to convert the competition names into IDs.

Using a "vanilla" DB (this shouldn't apply if you use a 2018/19 DB of course) I also added 1825 (which is 3650/2, so 5 years worth of days) to the following columns in the database:
  • players.birthdate
  • players.playerjointeamdate
  • playerloans.loandateend
I also added 5 to the following column:
  • players.contractvaliduntil
So, basically, I shifted the entire database five years forward in time (so for example Messi was born in 1992 and joined Barcelona in 2009 in my current DB, I don't care as I'm going to replace all the players anyway so it was just a testing thing).

Hope it helps!

How did you manage to start your career in 2020? I've changed the 'start year' values for competitions in settings.txt. However, on CM14, I could not set the start year past 2018 for any of the competitions. Is this why my game crashes when trying to start a career?
