  1. First of all, you aren't entitled to anything in this thread. If you want to come and discredit my work then I'd expect you'd at least make an effort to back your claims somehow. But seeing as you've not even bothered with anything else than whataboutism, I've decided to humor you. I took a look at the first file in the download you've endorsed. I'll use some high profile players as examples since they should be easiest in terms of research to get reasonably correct. Case 1: Eduardo (Kawasaki Frontale): Set attributes amount to a recommended current ability value of 85, no weak foot rating given which means it's randomized on game start. Positioning has been rated 4, which is an outrageously low rating for a centre back at this level even if they were positionally suspect. Case 2: Gen Shoji (Kashima Antlers) and Kengo Nakamura (Kawasaki Frontale) Nakamura is one of the finest technicians and playmakers in the league, while Shoji is an excellent stopper-type defender with an okay pass and forgettable ability on the ball. Still, the attribute balance inside the league in this file considers Shoji to have a narrowly better natural technique than Nakamura, when the difference should be considerably in Nakamura's advantage. This is not to say there are no centre backs with great ability on the ball, they are especially prevalent in today's game, but Shoji is no ball-playing defender while Nakamura among in the ten best J.League players in terms of technique. Case 3: Takuji Yonemoto (FC Tokyo) Yonemoto is a player with excellent ball-winning ability and reading of the game. This player type would be aptly represented with high aggression, anticipation, tackling and work rate attributes but here it seems he's been turned into something of a box-to-box midfielder who slightly prefers to stand off instead of getting involved. Case 4: Masato Morishige (FC Tokyo) Morishige is one of the most complete defenders in J.League and very positionally sound, yet these attributes present him as something akin to an offensive-oriented full back. Apparently his height and weight are also some way off the real figures. Case 5: Shusaku Nishikawa No physical attributes entered here for a national team goalkeeper and long-time J1 regular. I do not mean to put down anyone else's work but the aforementioned examples are objective (and, at times, grave) errors concerning single attributes, attribute balance or representing player types which to my mind do not endorse a very high level of detail. It is understandable as files like these are worked on authors' free time, but considering I've poured two years into this project focusing on the quality of research I can confidently say my work does not contain comparable inaccuracies and as such cannot idly stand by as someone has the gall to dismiss my work with baseless accusations. And if you spent more time reading yourself, you'd have realized that the second post in this thread mentions that the file is not a stable release and that naturally includes caveats such as duplicates or missing players as a result of the importing process from the previous year's version.
  2. I'd recommend you take a look at how detailed the players (or staff, for that matter) are between the two. Otherwise you can hop off this thread to spout baseless nonsense elsewhere.
  3. Have you considered that tempo, physicality of play, directness, pressing and width are all relative to the attacking attribute?
  4. Great stuff, thanks! I tend to forget about players moving abroad to play in smaller leagues. Some of those duplicates are really strange considering they are players who've retired some time ago, I must've missed them early on without realizing they had counterparts in the database already. In any case, I've gone and deleted every duplicate in this list and will probably be able to release a hotfix soon.
  5. This is sort of a beta release considering I've only tested the file with the two highest divisions. I've also left some of the managers sacked in the latter half of the season unchanged if they were replaced by interim options, these will be changed for the 2019 season release.
  6. Contents The file has been updated to the summer transfer window of the 2018 season. There are over 600,000 changes in total. Every first team player and staff member in J1 & J2 League has been included. All personnel have been set with attributes, positions, shirt numbers, personal details and playing histories. Most of the staff members and some players in J3 have been included with the above details set. Real attendance and season ticket figures for teams in J1 through JFL. Real media outlets and major player agents have been added. (by Dax) More than 1000 U18 players, high school players, university players and youth staff have been added with accurate personal details, positions and ratings. Some youth players also have select attributes set based on their strengths and weaknesses. (by Dax) Realistic league structure up to JFL with realistic prize money and rules. A standard U18 system has been included due to the impossibility of replicating the real one without bugs. Realistic finances have been implemented using financial records provided by clubs. Numbers have been scaled as accurately as possible to how FM calculates expenses. (by Dax) Thanks to Dax for his work with youth players and clubs as well as details that add to the immersion. Thanks to Shimera for helping with Ehime FC and club kits. Japan.zip
  7. Yes, this is correct. I changed every medium hairstyle to short for the time being so it won't look as silly while it's fixed.
  8. Weerachart is the romanization used for the original player in the Thai database.
  9. I did mention that I've got the file working in FM19 just two posts up...
