Ok guys, I hope I will be ready to send you the files tonight (West-European time :) ).

It's just, I've got to study for my exams too and I want the tutorial to be perfect so you guys know what to do. It takes a lot more time making it than I'd expected so... But maybe, just maybe, tonight it will be in your mailboxes.

So we've got:
- Juventus
- Man. Utd
- AC Milan
- Barcelona
- Real Madrid
(allready made by me these 5)
and:
- Manchester City
- Racing club Strasbourg
- Birmingham City
- Wolverhampton
- Paris Saint Germain
- AS Monaco
- RSC Anderlecht
- FC Brugge
- KRC Genk
- AJAX Amsterdam
- Parma (if warrencini is willing to help)
- Lecce (maybe?)

That's a good start I think. We'll see how it will work out.
Thanks a lot everyone that's helping and keep an eye on this thread. I'll inform you when the files are ready.

Hi Ikk (hope you don't mind I use the short form),

Thanks for your detail explanation on how to use the EA Graph...

I did that myself before reading your help. My process is more or less the same as you...only that I didn't open the target file when I IMPORT the exported files back to the ".ini"

Since I don't know the meaning of some of the lines in the AI.ini...(and other ini files), I am not really sure whether I edited it correctly or not... I only notice...in my World Class mode, the opponents stand very close to my players so they make many interceptions.

Again, thanks very much for your help.

My email is

[email protected]

I look forward to receiving your files.


To Rhizome 17,
I have used the ini.big editor but it crashes my game (maybe it's coz of my FifaCoach)... so I am not going to use that.

Hi Ikk,

I forgot to mention my problem with the FifaCoach.

I listed what I did and what were the results below:

1) Installed FifaCoach 2.0 (full version...abbreviated as FC2.0) ...when I got onto the program menu of FC 2.0, I clicked the "Formation" on the menu bar. The program closed automatically without save.

2) Uninstalled FC 2.0...then installed the FC 1.0 ...everything is okay ...no problem... then I run the Fifa2003... when the game was loading (before the match...where the screen showed the lineups for both sides), the Fifa2003 suddenly closed itself and the screens back to the window screen.

3) Uninstalled FC 1.0... then installed FC 2.0 WITH UPDATE (the one that required update)... then I run the Fifa2003... when the game was loading (before the match...where the screen showed the lineups for both sides), the Fifa2003 suddenly closed itself and the screens back to the window screen.

In the above 3 cases, I installed the FC into the Fifa2003 Directory (same level as /Fifa2003/Data). I don't see anything wrong with my installation. That's why I am curious about that.

Thanks for your patience reading my problem description.

Euhm, I think the FC should be installed in your Fifa 2003 main directory, not in the 'data' folder. At least that's how I did it.

Once in FC, you should click 'OPEN a FormationSet' and than select one Formation Set from the drop down list under where it says 'Formation Mode'. Normally if you pick mine, it should work. There are no errors in it.

Finally just press 'SAVE' to import the FormationSet into the game.

BTW, I think that if you once f*cked it up, you've got a problem. I did something wrong once (edited the AC Milan formation and stored it wrong) and I couldn't play with AC Milan anymore + I couldn't edit it in FC either so I had to reinstall the game and FifaCoach :(

Hope it's not the same with you :rolleyes:

BTW, you can call me 'Ikk' if you want, I know the whole name is a bit difficult to type every time :) So call me Ikk or Ike or whatever as long as I know you're talking to me :crazyboy:

Ok guys, the tutorial is finished!

I'll send it to you all right away. It turned out to be a pretty long one, but I tried to explain everything as good as possible.

It tells you how to make AI-files for teams and players and how to import them if you'd like :)

So we can start editing now and make as many teams as possible for the gameplay patch!

Anyone who still wants to join: just leave your e-mail here, together with which teams you want to make.

Greetz!

Hi Ikk,

I think I installed the FC to the Fifa main directory. But it didn't work.

I can edit every aspects of team Parma and its players EXCEPT its formation since I cannot get the FC worked out properly.

I will try to edit the teams this weekend (since no job search is done in weekends in Canada...ha)

I will make the team realistic (I actually lowered the rating of Brighi even though I like that player very much).


Before I finish, I wanna raise a question. I saw that in the "AI.ini"

there was a column called "player attribute effect (on=1; off=0)"

does that variable mean ...

if variable =1, the players performance is very different between high rating players and low rating players?


I just wanna make the fatique effect noticeable for some of the teams. Coz it's unrealistic if China can press all the time without tiring (they usually get tired after 60 min.)

Thanks very much for your help.

Hi Ikk,

just forgot one thing. Do you know if there's any way to do "global change" (change multiple players' multiple attributes at once) in FCDB XP 2003?

Coz it's good to lower some of the players' ratings in a quick way.

Thanks very much for your help, actually.

Ok warrencini,

To answer to your first question:
I'm actually not sure myself that the variable attr effect has an impact on the game, but I set it to 1 in my patch because I think it does exactly as you suggested there :)

To answer on your 2nd question:
I haven't used FCDB XP 2003 yet, so I really don't know.

BTW, your changing the values of Brighi you say, but that can only be done with CC or FCDB or another DB-editor, not by AI-editing. So you'll have to send me a package file or DBI files then I suppose, or what are you planning? Only the AI files for Parma would be enough actually, but if you want to edit the attributes too, that would be great. Or is it for an own patch that you're going to release?

BTW, if you find a way to 'global edit' files (like in previous version of Chau Le's editors), please let me know. I'd like to decrease the keeper's stats to make them act more realistic.

It's in your mail Chris! Thanks for helping on the patch and... take your time :) There's no such thing as a deadline ;)

Anybody allready editing teams? Any questions?

Hey ikk,
I don't want to be a pain or sound impatient coz I know the patch you're working on sounds excellent, but you said a week or so ago that you were going to release your new shooting patch with the old computer aided shooting system back on it (albeit improved). Do we have to wait until this patch is finished, before that one is released?
 

ikkenenderikke

Youth Team
Sorry jonah,

You may expect a new release soon. I've got an exam tomorrow and after that, I have some time to work on it, but until than it's studying :(

I hope to release two versions tomorrow-evening (west-european time) normally. One with the old shooting system and one with an improved new shooting system.

There won't be any new teams in it for now though (haven't got any response yet from anyone so :confused: )

See ya!

Hi Ikk,

I think I will work on the AI files (those you sent me on Monday, Vancouver time) for sure. But I am not sure when I can finish it since I have a job interview next Monday/Wed. Plus, I am also waiting for the school program advisor's reply (since I'll back to study starting Sept).

My work/study schedule has to be fixed prior to my editing. I am sorry for that delay.

Offcourse your work and stydies are more important! It's the same with me. Take your time Warrencini, no pressure.

As I said: I've got exams now so there's not much time to work on the patch. My studies are more important too right now so I totally understand you m8!

Hi Ikkenenderrikke, I've sent my Strasbourg team to you. I'm going to make the other teams this week end and e-mail them to u. Your step by step tutorial is perfect, first time I inderstand one.

Youth Team
Thanks grimph!

I'll test them out as soon as possible :)

BTW, I just figured out that I sent my files with my other e-mail address, so I've only just read some replies of you guys! Don't check that mail often so... sorry if I didn't reply to you earlier.

Been a little busy last days enjoying my free time between the exams :) so the new version of the patch is not released yet, but I'll try to finish it tomorrow. I'm gonna leave the old shooting system to what it was for now and update it in later versions. I just haven't got much time to work on it right now so I figured, better a patch with the old EA system, than no patch at all.

New shooting system will be improved a little bit.

Thanks again grimph for your files. They will be in the release tomorrow allready!

Keep up the good work!

Hi Ikk,

I followed your instructions in your tutorial.

I'd like to raise a question here.

Situation:

I changed the WC_Mark_Aggr to 6.0 (which is the max value you suggested for this variable) and WC_Loose_Aggr to 10.0 (also your suggested max value) and WC_Tackling_Aggr to 70.0 (your suggested value max is 100).

The players were actually getting aggressive... but they are only aggressive when I dribble towards their half... and when I got the ball in my own half and didn't move, the opponents did not come and try to tackle or press me...

I think they should at least run towards me...

I also edited the Close_down_Rate (or other similar) in the aicpu.ini...

Question:

How do you make the opponents run towards you when you hold the ball in your own half without moving?

Thanks very much for your tutorial.
