  1. I've tried a couple of different things, including simply adding a new (created) stadium instead of replacing the old (created) stadium. No matter what I do with these created stadiums, it always returns 46 failed changes. I'm getting very frustrated.
  2. I just exported it as an XML file and I made two changes (stadium name and city): it still returned 46 failed changes. I can find a way to upload the XML file, but it's 250mb. Just so you know.
  3. Extinct competition appears anyway

    I'll give that a whirl, but I'm wary of removing stuff.
  4. I'm not trying to transfer anything; I'm editing in FM16 and playing in FM16. The editor file is a native FM16 file, as well. The problem seems to be with created stadiums. But, again, I can't figure out what the real problem is because I the Editor isn't returning any results when I search for failed changes.
  5. Excel and the FM Editor - FM Editing

    Has anyone used this method to add players or clubs? If so, would that person mind sharing how they did it? Thanks!
  6. Setting likely attendances for competitions

    I don't think you can do that in the basic editor, but maybe try looking in the advanced editor for a setting like that? I also think part of the issue might be the disparity in the reputations: that is, the cup is rated so much higher than the top division. Have you tried evening the reputations out?
  7. No, it's in FM16. I don't really know why this happening. I did a test and I renamed one of the created stadiums and that created 46 failed changes. Since this was only a cosmetic change, I don't understand what the problem is (and I've never seen this happen before). For reference, I've created more than 1500 stadiums for this file and there are 160 created stadiums in the nation that's causing the problems. I've also just gotten rid of all of the affected nation's stadiums and that didn't fix the problems. This means one of two things: either the Editor is returning bad results (i.e., it's lying about failed changes) or the problems are in one of the other nations I've edited (though, again, the Editor doesn't indicate any failed changes at all when I search for that). This is all very vexing. Thanks for your response!
  8. I've made a ton of changes to the database and now I have anywhere between 23 and 58 changes appearing as failed, but I can't locate them with a search. That is, if I search with the "Number of failed changes = at least 1", nothing comes back. Does anyone know what the deal is with that? I've isolated it to something weird happening when I try to rename stadiums I've created. I suppose I could delete all of those created stadiums and start over, but I'd really prefer not to (there are 160 of them). Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  9. *Official* Editor Feature Requests

    I'm still using FM14 and FM16, so there's that. I also prefer FM14 to FM16, despite the limitations.
  10. *Official* Editor Feature Requests

    Also, my annual request to either let us get rid of automatic second nationalities, like those on Caribbean islands that are still part of the overseas territories controlled by European nations, or give us a way to set what the automatic second nationalities are (none/England/France/whoever). Also, I would really like a way to create new nations from scratch.
  11. *Official* Editor Feature Requests

    This is one of the major flaws of the release-a-new-version-every-year model. It could be partially solved by going to a two-year upgrade cycle (i.e., FM 2018, FM 2020, FM 2022, etc.) instead of a one-year upgrade cycle. But that will never happen, obvs., lol.
  12. *Official* Editor Feature Requests

    Two things: (1) Please stop making stuff hard-coded. Or at least make a note somewhere in the editor (or game documentation, if that's still a thing for modern games) of which competitions, etc. are hard-coded. It will save a lot of frustration. (2) Make an easy way for me to change jersey numbers (i.e., squad numbers) in the in-game editor. If FMRTE can do it, so can the official in-game editor.
  13. Extinct competition appears anyway

    Thanks for the response, Kubi! If they're hard-coded, that will be irritating. But I'll poke around and see what I can find. Can the valid years be changed in the basic editor?
  14. I've re-done the CONCACAF club and international tournaments and I have a problem. The first is that the CFU Caribbean Cup and the Copa Centroamericana are running, despite the fact that I have made them extinct in the files. They no longer feed into any competition (i.e., the Caribbean Cup is used to choose the Caribbean participants of the Gold Cup in real life, but not in my edits) so I don't know why they're still running. The same thing happens with the Canadian Championship, which in real life chooses the Canadian team to participate in the CONCACAF Champions League. That is not the case in my edits (there is a full league system for Canada and my version of the Champions League doesn't take the Canadian Championship into account). So I made that competition extinct, as well. Yet it still runs every summer for no good reason (i.e., the winner doesn't get anything out of winning). Is there a reason for this? Do I have to do more than just extinct them? I am considering making the competitions active again, and re-purposing them for something else (i.e., a domestic cup or something). Would that work? Other than this (and one other weird thing - I have multiple instances of competition histories showing up, like the Gold Cup winner appearing 4 times for the same year), everything works fine. Thanks in advance for any help!
  15. FM 2017 in-game editor - new features

    Can I change squad numbers on other clubs with this year's version of the IGE? This is literally the only feature I care about because I hate it when players have stupid numbers.
