  1. I don't think it's possible.
  2. Nevermind. Managed to 'fix' it. (My browser was zoomed in too much )
  3. How do I change it back to the desktop skin? At the moment the SIGames board is appearing as if it was on a mobile phone for me. I've looked through the options but can't find where to change it back to how it was.
  5. This is from 2014:
  6. Strange. They do for me.
  7. I've updated the file on Steam Workshop. You're the first person to mention this problem so I didn't know about it 'til now.
  8. It's nice to see some of the competitions brought to life.
  9. This was found by Spurs08 in the Editor forum: Regarding v.16.3.2 of the data editor In the pre-game data editor, the maximum value for Coefficients has been set to 20 (in the Football Manager 2016 Editor\data\format\database\nation.xml file). Spain have three values higher than 20 (2011/12: 20.857, 2013/14: 23.000, 2014/15: 20.214). If these are adjusted by the user to another above 20, it reverts to 20. The maximum allowed value in the editor (20) is too low and needs to be increased. I've attached a screenshot of the editor showing the maximum value allowed to be input and the existing values in the database.
  10. It's possible to "turn on" (i.e. create yourself) most, if not all competitions in the database. The issue with European U17 Championship is that the youngest international type the game supports is Under-19. What I provided above is a workaround but it's not perfect.
  11. There are many competitions in the database which aren't playable by default. I've posted the best solution I know.
  12. It's kind of possible. You can create an international U19 competition and set the age cut off date to be two years ahead, so that the players are under 17 but the team itself is still the Under 19s. Here's an example.
  13. I may be misunderstanding what you want to do, but creating a youth competition is pretty easy. Have a look at this in the editor to see how it's possible.
  14. It's steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2016 Editor\data\format\rule group\advanced folder\comp.xml, not comps.dbc
  15. Open the file comp.xml in the steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2016 Editor\data\format\rule group\advanced folder with a text editor (I recommend Notepad++) Copy the following: <!-- competition host offset--> <record> <flags id="field" value="next_year_host_announced" /> <translation id="name" type="use" value="Number of years in advance host nation is announced" /> <flags id="type" value="integer" /> <integer id="default_value" value="0" /> <integer id="min_value" value="0" /> <integer id="max_value" value="10" /> <boolean id="is_optional" value="true" /> <boolean id="is_invalid_name_variable" value="true" /> <!-- do not use in parent fields name--> <list id="dependencies"> <record field="is_league_fixtures" not_equals="true" /> </list> </record> Paste it to line 1513 and save the file. When you load the editor, a new option is now available. In the image above, I've set the host of the Pan American Games to be announced 6 years ahead of the competition. The host of the 2023 edition of the competition will now be announced in 2017 in game. This is not likely to appeal to many people but I thought it was worth sharing.
