  1. Thanks, I was hoping someone would say something like that, one less thing to worry about . Although tbh I've just been hiring scouts in my save and at lower levels you don't have much choice anyway.
  2. I've just read a blog somewhere which advises one to pay attention to preferred formation when hiring scouts. Given that I've just started a LL save and am only allowed 3 scouts I'm interested to know how much affect this has? Thanks.
  3. I'd be happy to give it a go yes. What Claasen did was to create one huge League just called Level 10, solely to facilitate relegation from the County Leagues at level 9, and to provide teams for the FA Vase. So that would need to be replaced with the actual 19 Step 10 competitons you've created. One way to do it fairly simply might be to remove all the rules fom your file and merge it with Claasen's , since he only edited rules and nothing else. You need to ensure that both files are saved sequentially with the file containing the rules being newer, as the newer file takes precedence on database changes. That would hopefully keep all your edits like L10 League names, prize money, awards etc. If that didn't work all the rules would need to be re-done manually which as you know takes for ever and the slightest mistake can balls things up. I've only learnt this stuff by trial and error fairly recently so I am in no way an expert and I would assume that Claasen would need to be credited, since I could never have worked out the playoffs without his help.
  4. I downloaded Claasen's file, from the OP in the link above, opened it in the editor, made a note of what he'd done, and have been able to create my own file with the English L7 and 8 playoffs eactly as they are planned IRL. I've simmed a season and everything works fine. All the credit must go to Claasen .
  5. I am sure most of the experienced editors already know this but I couldn't find a thread when I searched. I've been learning to use advanced rules recently and making lots of little tweaks to see how they manifest ingame. A little tip I've found; if your rules have been previously tested and verified, you don't need to test them ALL again after every little change, just test the lowest ranked competiton e.g 'English County leagues', then all your comps will be available in game. (Though you will have to select whatever the lowest level is for your game setup). Saves a bit of time
  6. Nice idea. Your fans should be happy with the Home grown team
  7. Hello Dan, I've been studying your database in order to try and create my own lower league update for my own interest. The amount of editing you must do, and the attention to detail is breathtaking. Given that SI provide no guide for the editor and the in-editor tooltips can be vague to say the least, I've really learnt a lot from you, and you've increased my enjoyment of the game a great deal. One thing I noticed , the North West Premier has its western boundary set as Halifax. Should Halifax be the eastern boundary?
  8. Thank you for the reply re: England. The FA Cup error is in the version linked on 24/11. The version in the updated OP works fine as you say. Merci Beaucoup.
  9. Hello Claasen, I've simmed a season using your England database and everything works perfectly except the FA cup. No fixtures are scheduled for any division. The draw dates are shown and clubs have the FA Cup in their competitions panel, but no matches are actually played. I've tested two further saves and the same thing happens. I added advanced nation rules to the default database in order to compare them with the ones in your database and try and isolate the issue. I can't see any mistakes in the rules you created. However, SI have included 4 sets of rules for the FA Cup whilst your update includes only two. Screenshot attached. I assume that rules with FMM in brackets (whatever that means) are required and this is causing the issue? Don't worry about re-doing this since I know you're probably busy. The Regional First playoffs were perfect! I can re-create those now and just leave the FA Cup on the default rule settings.
  10. Sounds like you have a decent tactic sorted. Did the Lopes Tavares team contain Portuguese nationals? IRL they are an expat side, and Dan set their local region to Algarve in the editor, presumably to model this.
  11. I have an older laptop , running Windows10 1803 the maximum resolution I can select is 1600 x 900, via Settings>Display>Advanced Settings>DisplayAdapterProperties>List All Modes .There is no 125% zoom availbale to me either, and i struggle to read the text at 100%. I looked into updating the display driver but it seems my graphics card can't support a higher res. The workaround I found is to use a custom skin. Neub Skin has an inherent zoom and I find it much easier to read. Of course, the trade-off is more scrolling
  12. I'm going to give this a go. Managed to complete the Pentagon in FM17 , it took me about 9 months in which time I forgot how to interact with actual humans. I was planning to attempt the African Champions League with an Egyptian club, just as a change from South Africa. This obviously means a custom database so I'm not sure If I pass the rules in the OP. Ditto Asian Champions league with a Japanese Club. Thought I'd start with an English LL club also, to build rep and gain badges and hopefully enable me to get straight in at Zamalek or Al Ahly:-)
  13. Ha! It was complicated but I admire your modesty. Thank you so much again, I've learnt a lot from you. Keep up the good work
  14. Enjoyable read. Dario is getting on a bit though , wonder if he'll retire at the end of your first season? You've probably seen that Claasen has figured out how to replicate the L7 and L8 playoffs? My own save will have to wait whilst I try to understand how he did it and transpose the rules into Dan's file (Dan has all the nice little extras like geographical limits to leagues).
