There is a development of HD patch (+AI & gameplay BUG FIXES)


FIRST RELEASE OF PATCH 28.04.2018

What is currently fixed:

"Gameplay and AI"

* Impenetrable goalkeepers, especially from outside the penalty area. Now, it became real to score a goal from afar .
* Previously, in the direction of the attack that selected the computer contained a bug, because of it, computer players moved to the offensive only on the left side of the field, or on the right.
* Now the computer does not hesitate to beat from afar, the corners of blows and scoops are also adjusted.
* Goalkeepers are more bold on the outputs out of gate and better intercept the balls.
* Pass speed is reduced. Previously, passes were unrealistic (too fast), and most resembled ping-pong.
* The computer has learned to play aggressively on the line offside.
* Computer players are better beat punches the free kick.
* The computer can sometimes play the ball after the standard positions.
* Increased severity of the referee, now for almost every kick on the legs from behind will be shown a red card.
* Added fatigue players.
* Speed of players now differs depending on their characteristics of pace and acceleration, it is especially strange that earlier all the players speed characteristics were almost identical.
* Undergone changes the physics of ball adding to the game more realism.
* The changes also touched on the difficulty levels of the game, from a tactical point of view, it will become more difficult to play.

And other changes.

"Graphics"

* Vertical synchronization of frames for smoother picture output is established.
* Now you can play in the window mode.
* Supports widescreen resolutions.
* The main referee, as well as his assistants, is now displayed on the playing field.
* Increased the distance and quality of drawing kits, hairstyles players.
* Fixed a huge number of players from the base: growth, standard faces adjusted to the most similar, etc. For example Robert Pires, who by default in the game has an hieght of only 180 cm in reality is much higher (188 cm). All this and much more has been corrected in order to achieve the maximum correspondence to real football and events in the 2004-2005 season.
* Replaced the standard Champions League video-intro in low quality, on video-intro in high quality.

And other changes.

Support for new gamepads and most buttons and functions (via XInput Plus).

(actual version)

The purpose of this patch is to correct errors in the gameplay and improve the graphics. Already made a lot of changes, the result can be seen in the video on the links. But I need your help, I do not understand how to properly insert new faces into the game or even create a new face. Do you know someone competent in this matter?

The development continues. A functional launcher is being prepared. Soon the first version of the patch will be released.

UPDATE 28.04.2018
First version of Patch Released!

UPDATE 16.07.2018
You can download this patch from the link (version 1.0 RC02): yadi.sk/d/HwCZ2rRi3ZDaBr (20mb on archive) patch link is out of date

LAST VERSION OF PATCH: yadi.sk/d/oA6_MG5dT9c0Yw 1.0 (rc04) 11.05.2020
The list of changes can be found on the official VK community: vk.com/uefa_champions_league_2004_2005, so far in only one language (russian). Therefore, use google translate.

List of nasty bugs:
In fact, there are many of them and they will be replenished.
Any ideas how to solve the problem? Write to me and suggest a solution. Together we will think about how to bring the game to perfection.
1) Whiskers or bristles are not displayed during a match for players using standard faces. The problem does not apply to high quality faces that were created for each player individually
At the moment, I can't think of anything to solve this problem. In FIFA 2005, the mustache or beard and their colors are displayed without problems during the match, however in UEFA CL 04-05 there is a problem. By the way, facial hair is not displayed in both the PC version of the game and PS2.

I can't get the game to run at all.
Read detailed instruction for installing and configuring the game: vk.com/topic-146034563_38911167

So far, only in one language, so use google translator

For experienced users, launching the game does not cause problems. They can do without installation instructions. Although it is desirable to still read it. The game is compatible with all new Windows operating systems and usually does not require any unobvious actions on the part of the user

CL 04/05 uses models in .o format. It's possible to edit or create new models with OTools.

Thank you! Is there a direct link to download this program? There is almost no information in Google. At least I found only empty links. I found something in the search on given site SOCCERGAMING upon request "OTools" with your participation. But I don’t have much time now, so I haven’t figured it out yet with what I found. I will also be grateful of you if there is a guide on editing faces. If there is such an opportunity(!), then could you throw off the links so that I do not have to collect everything bit by bit. Soon I will continue again to work on the patch and am grateful for any help

Sorry I am not experienced with this side of gaming. I don't own the game & thought it was possible to play without owning it.

Hi guys,

Do either of you have UCL FAT/BH builder by Ariel for this videogame? I've tried searching everywhere, but no success.

I have face fixes for Buffon, Fiore & Duff players & I want to add the hidden FIFA 2005 faces for Lucio & Sonny Anderson. I also want to update kits for some teams too.

I have my own tools for fat/bh building, but don't know if they work with CL 04/05.
I can create Asset Loader for this game, if needed.

@Iliya_Samuel which tools do you use for database and .big files?
Is there something like a Creation Master for CL 04/05?

I don't know.

I created Asset Loader for UEFA CL 04/05, check it here: http://www.soccergaming.com/index.p...ader-for-uefa-champions-league-04-05.6468717/
With this plugin, you can add or replace files without touching .big or .fat files. Just put your files to data/assets folder. But don't forget that some types of assets must be aligned to same size (heads, hair textures, balls etc.).

Here's an example:

Lionel Messi face (FIFA 07 version)
1) Download ASI Loader with plugins, unzip content to game folder
2) Download Messi face, unzip to game folder

For anyone who will be interested in adding or replacing faces:
The head must be aligned with 75440 bytes (-pad 75440 option in OTools).
Textures are created from original files (replaced with FSHEd), I also replaced the unique hash (comment section, the last value in TXLY line) by new values, with Hex Editor).

Do FIFA 07 faces work directly, or do you have to convert them to UCL2005 format? What about stadiums? There was versions of Olympic Stadiums Rome & Munich converted to UCL 2005, but it is impossible to set as unique stadiums using the correct IDs (3 & 11)
