Am currently in the process of updating changed competitions (National League, EFL Trophy) for FM14. Playing the newer ones is too time consuming for me now I have two young kids and I always liked 14 so I am updating the database.
National League is all done and works fine. I am having a bit of an issue with EFL trophy. First I have made some adjustments to it... I have included national league teams to dilute the impact of the U23 sides (U21s in FM14)
So now I have a 112 team competition, with 16 groups of 7 teams. All my seedings work fine and the top two move into the next stage (knockouts) However when I run 'Test competitions' it gives the error 'No teams found for Stage 1 of EFL trophy.'
I have got teams in stage 1 coming from qualified from stage 0. I have attached numerous screenshots that show the following:
Error - The error I receive when running 'Test Competitions'
Stage0Name - Shows the name of the stage as 'Group Stage'
Stage0LeagueSettings - Shows the Qualification rules set up for stage 0
Stage1Name - Shows the Name of the second stage and the sub stage on Round 1
Stage1 Teams - Shows the teams I have set up for stage 1, that apparently do not exist.
Please can somebody have a look to see if there is something I am doing wrong? And if nothing in the pictures strikes you as incorrect any ideas where else to look?
