  2. Ban loans on specific Division

    It seems to be a problem when adding to the existing Chile league system. In this attached basic file, it works, but when it's converted to advanced rules. The loan rules are disregarded. Chile-lower-leagues-basic.fmf
  3. [Africa] (Official) Data Issues

    Clearly he's a big Damien Rice fan from back in the day.
  4. [Africa] (Official) Data Issues

    I've been in contact with one of the Portugese head researchers about this one. It's not a duplicate. There was a brief time when they were at the same club together, share the same name and have playing histories that could match, and so it's caused some confusion. Same. Not a duplicate. (I know it's been mentioned in a PM but this is just to let other people know that these aren't duplicated either.)
  5. [Portugal] (Official) League Specific Issues

    It's like this in real life too. This year 17 losers in the first round were back for the second round. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017–18_Taça_de_Portugal#First_round
  6. I've been usng the upvote function on the data issues topic as a note to myself that something has been completed. I've just received a message saying "Sorry, you cannot add any more reactions today". That's a bit annoying. Can the number of reactions allowed be increased, please?
  7. Sometimes there's an issue getting the editor to save the date. I've uploaded three files to the FTP site Videos: game-editor/pre-game editor - Inserting 1 October 2000 game-edito/pre-game-editor - date #3.mp4 Editor file: Pan American Games.fmf To reproduce the issue, open the fmf file with the pre-game editor, change the date of the Group Stage 2 date for 2019 and it'll reset to something else.

  10. No Nation.xml file

    They're embedded in the comp editor.fmf file. Use the Football Manager 2018 Resource Archiver to extract them.

    Look at the English club Crawley to see how to set a team up without reserve teams.
