  1. I was wondering if anyone has made a fix for the FM16 editor that will allow normal shift-tab (i.e., go back to the previous field) function. It doesn't appear to be working in mine, which is far more annoying that it should be. Thanks in advance!
  2. I can't even think about how to describe this in a few words, so here it goes: in the little news blurbs in FM, it always uses the club's long name. Is there such a thing as a file that either uses the short name for those blurbs and/or has increased the variety of blurbs? It might be an LNC file, and I think I saw one a few years ago but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called. Any ideas?
  3. First, I'm still using FM14, so please keep that in mind. My question has to do with the finals and semi-finals of cup competitions. I want to know if there's some way to choose a number of stadiums that will be rotated over the course of years. For context, right now I have it set as "national stadium" in the vanilla editor. The problem is that it keeps choosing stadiums I've designated for the U-23/U-21/U-19 national teams and not the senior teams. So the cup finals are played in less than ideal stadiums. I realize that I could simply get rid of those U-23, etc. stadiums, but I don't want to do that because I want to have my cake and then eat it, too. So, could this be solved with the advanced editor? Or is this a problem that's going to exist until SI decide to actually do something about it? Thanks in advance!
  4. Is there a tutorial somewhere around here re: using Notepad++ for editing, kingrobbo? EDIT: I'm esp. interested in any way to add a ton of players relatively quickly.
  5. Is there a comprehensive list of new features available somewhere? Really, the only feature I care about is ending automatic second nationalities in current/former colonies/dependencies. Is it possible to edit it? Also, how easy is it to create new nations? Is that possible yet? Or are we still stuck swapping nations around?
  6. I tested out FM15 and it seems that that feature only prevents players from acquiring a second nationality. I'm not sure if it does what you said re: picking players with a second nationality. In the Caribbean, the problem is that anyone who's decent will choose to represent the other country (i.e., England or Holland or France or the US, in the case of Puerto Rico) because it has a far better chance of actually making a World Cup. What I want to do is not give Caribbean players the option to have a second nationality so they have to represent the country of their birth. I realize this is a long shot since SI doesn't seem to care about anything other than UEFA, but I'll keep hammering on it, heh. Another option would be to put 40 or so empty nations in the database. What I mean by that is that these would be nations that could be swapped into the game without having to touch other nations, like pre-1922 Ireland or West Germany or East Germany and so on. That way, I could just copy, say, the Cayman Islands data to this new empty nation and it wouldn't have an automatic second nationality. It's a roundabout way of solving a problem SI could fix by adding a tick box that says "Automatic second nationality yes/no", but I'm getting kinda desperate.
  7. Interesting. Is that in the FM15 editor? I'm still working with FM14 as I'm currently waiting for FM16 to be released. If that works, that'll be the solution to my biggest complaint. Everything else is just gravy after that, heh.
  8. As I never bought FM15 (I'm waiting for FM16), I'm still working with FM14 and I've encountered a problem with local regions. I've added a bunch of new local regions (33 to be precise) but now if I add more than two or three to a given nation, the editor crashes. So, I'm wondering if there is an upper limit to the number of local regions we can add. Also, has this been addressed in FM15? Thanks in advance for your help!
  9. Some way to edit the automatic second nationality of nations. For example, some Caribbean nations get automatic English/Dutch/French second nationalities and if I make the Caribbean nation better, the best players will always declare for England/Holland/France. What I want is some way to prevent that from happening, without swapping in "empty" nations like the CIS or pre-1916 Ireland, etc. The other option is to allow the creation of entirely new nations, similar to how entirely new cities can be created. With this particular issue, I think there were hard-coded issues in the past, though. Another thing is to allow different numbers of teams in the various confederations. Currently, CONCACAF has 42 nations, but only 35 are full FIFA members. I'd like to be able to convert some of those non-FIFA members into full FIFA members without completely wrecking World Cup Qualifying. Of course, I'd also like to be able to edit World Cup Qualifying in a much easier fashion, but that's probably not high on the list of the priorities. On the other hand, it seems to me that being able to edit the second nationality would be very, very easy to implement.
  10. Some way to get edit automatic second nationalities. They're infuriating if one is working with North America and, in particular, the Caribbean.
  11. So I just looked at some EDT files from Susie and one of them is called "be_a_newgen". So, that means I have a couple of more questions: (a) Does that file work with FM14? (b) How detailed does it need to be in order to just have new names? © How soon are those regens included? Or does that depend on DOB, like if I make them 15 in 2015, they'd appear in 2015/16? Any help is appreciated!
  12. Thanks for the lead.
  13. Are there LNC files for regens for FM14? I've looked through the DB folders and I can't see anything. What's the formatting for the CHANGE_PLAYER_NAME ID "new name" "" files? Does that just change existing player names or does that add new names to be chosen for regens?
  14. One of the huge problems (for me) is that both the US and Canada have very small lists of possible newgen names. To that end, I was wondering if there was a way for me to add new names to the newgen list via an LNC file rather than using the pre-game editor. So, is that possible? And if it is, what sort of format do I need to use? Thanks in advance!
  15. Yes, that's possible, at least in FM14, so I imagine it's still possible in FM15.
