    It's come to light that, Regenerated players are far from random, as we are led to believe. In my understanding, a regen gets "born" at random on the opening day of each new season (19th June for N. Ireland), with randomly picked PA/CA determined on National Rep, and a Random name pulled from a hat of names belonging to that nation. (I.E - England may see a lot of Smiths, Browns, Johns and Steves)

    But currently, I have to argue this.

    I'm currently playing Gundo's Challenge, I'm sure you know what its about, and there a few of us managing in N. Ireland. One user on the thread had a phenomenal forward named Ben Kenney, who was english. (Born 1994).

    Many years into my game, I signed a young promising striker, english, named Ben Kenney. Being English and with the same name i thought coincidental. Until I noticed the actual D.O.B

    Ben Kenney 1 - D.O.B = 21.2.1994
    Ben Kenney 2 - D.O.B = 21.2.2003

    Amazing. I thought, what a massive coincidence, left it there, and thought nothing more of it. Until today.

    It turns out, ANOTHER user has ANOTHER Ben Kenney with the D.O.B @ 21.2.1993

    They are all "Regens". They are all different save games. But they are all the very same player.

    This leads me to believe, how random are the "random" regens?

    How many others on this forum have a Ben Kenney of their own born on the 21st of Feb in any particular year,

    and how long are SI going to pull the wool over our eyes on this matter?

    Ben Kenney 1 (Belonging to Annihilator)
    Ben Kenney 2 (Belonging to bnek)
    Ben Kenney 3 (Belonging to NepentheZ

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Very Interesting. Never actually noticed it myself but maybe I'm not looking hard enough, I'll have a look in my current game for any Ben Kennedys.

    I personally think Ben Kenney will appear on anyones game so long as it is a long-term career game. I'm in 2024 and he's 23 IIRC. I reckon you must be 10+ seasons.

    Does it matter a whole heap as long as the positon he gets "generated", his stats and his ca/pa are all random?

    Annihilators Ben Kenney was borin in 1994, meaning it would be around the 2010 mark when he was introduced into that save game.

    iacovone, also D.O.B @ 21.2, and also an attacking player.

    Interesting but it doesn't really prove anything. The 4th one doesn't count either as his DOB is different, so thats very easily coincidental. The other three are suspect. It still maybe a coincidence though. Maybe its a problem with DOB not being entirely random?

    It's not different. You must have looked at the contract expiry date. 21.2.2003 for the 4th.

    Probably the random function used within FM uses the in-game date as a seed... nothing wrong with that, imo.

    Ahhh, my bad. Was looking at the wrong date

    You're onto something here. The next step is to choose another regen at random and see if the same pattern occurs. I too have a Ben Kenney bvorn on the same date.

    Ben Kenney is a tester at SI
    There are a few testers that are regenerated in the game depending on which leagues you have running, in total there about 15 or so
    The testers were asked if they wanted to be in the game as possible future regens and their details were taken. Among the details were name, D.O.B, nationality, favourite team.
    If you look at all the Ben Kenneys in the game you should find his favourite team is Tottenham
    All other newgens are generated differently is different games

    What about their abilities? There's one more guy who appears in various games, with a rather complicated asian name - his initials are S.S. and he always turns out to be one of the best players in the world. Ben Kenney also seems to be a minor star in the game.

    if you look in the credits there should be a few people from the SI Testing team that are in various games
    I'd advise you to sign me but it seems everytime i'm generated im a crap reserve goalkeeper

    search for Gordon Dunbar, my favourite team will be Rangers

    Then I guess that explains everything. Amazing how Ben Kenney finds his way into a lot of User controlled teams.!

    Also, Gudge, as your here, what is the file I can amend to make myself one of these future regens? Cheers.

    There's no Gordon Dunbar in my game yet. I will search for you every season.

    Ever thought about getting a thread made up where people can detail the career of you guys?

    cool, on fm07 I had a regen called James Michael (cm) who was brilliant, then started again and low and behold another regen called James Michael appeared this time a CF and also brilliant.

    That explains it I guess

    I honestly think we need a thread dedicated to this

    Gordon, you look good for B'burn there.!

    Do you happen to know all of the SI Members that signed up for this? I would search for all of them, but some may not have been created yet, and you be buggered if i'm searching 300 people a season

    No Fecking way.!

    Something just bought a smile to my face.

    One of the Testers in the game "Tom Laskowski" was with me at Knockbreda from 2015/16 - 2021/22, when I went on to sell him for £275,000 to Reading.!

    You used to be able to sign Duffy and Marc Vaughn, and a load of the staff.

    Reckon you were quite a player back in the day. I've been advised not to sign you though

    Just thought I'd add:
    Ben Kenny #8

    And yes, favoured clubs includes Tottenham.

    Are we sure of that?

    There was in FM'05, you could use the EDT/DDT system to create future regens. I'd be a bit surprised if they hard-coded you guys instead of using that system..

    I remenber those days, and when you asked a player report they would come up with funny things, like one of th SI guys asked not to play cause he might mess up, or another asked to put his wife name on the back of the jersey, or the massive size of another that woul block all the of the Goal.

    Very good time man.

    Fantastic thread.

    I've got all of the testers mentioned above in my game.

    They're all useless by the way with little more than 2 stars for potential

    I have Oily Kenney playing for Chelmsford and i have a Scott Harwood who's a facegen scout for Bournemouth.

    Incidently Kenney is pretty crap even in Blue Square Premier. In his 6 year career as a striker he has scored 2 goals.

    um, there is.

    create an edt file, and put the following in:

    "FUTURE_REGEN" "First Name" "" "Surname" "dd.mm.yyyy" "Nation" "Favourite Team"

    you can use the name of the country and favourite team, or you can use the unique id which can be found by starting a game and turning unique ids on, or by looking in the editor

    then put the file you've created in the edt folder of the game database you're using

    this thread should explain a little more, and has future regen name packs that can be downloaded

    colour is random with the players, we know that already mate CoachFlu's was also black while alot of the others were white, im guessing its only the stats taken off the SI guys that is set in stone.
