Just a few simple tips I have found very handy over the years and want to pass on to the new editors out there:) when you make changes keep them change specific ie player ca/pa changes in one file/ club changes in one file/non player changes in one file etc do not make club player changes all stuffed in one big file that way if there are any issues they are easier to find and resolve:thup: If you think you might use an in game editor later on..... set up a few transfers using pre game editor in advance. I use obscure teams in countries I will not use and set them well in advance 2020 for example or what ever date you want and for a small amount eg £10, this way it generate a list of future transfers you can manipulate to set up any transfer you want during the game at any time:thup: Following on from point 2 if you find being frustrated with AI transfer activity, namely paying mega money for a player 1 year and then not playing him and selling on the next season for next to nothing, or a club selling a key player they wouldn't IRL for little money eg saw Shelvey sold for £5m in last save they then spent £15m on a replacement with lower stats??? To counter this giving players a new contract etc doesn't stop it..................but what does is set up a future transfer using pre game editor again a date well into the future for low fee, it doesn't impact on buying/selling club's finances and guarantees the player stays at his current club for that period It makes things more realistic for me as I see time after time players being sold at game start who the club would never sell at any price. Also you can amend/use these ''future transfers'' using an in game editor at anytime:thup: Hope these assist you in your projects and make FM16 editing a better experience;) NB backup your edited files just in case they get corrupted etc. I tend to copy the whole edited folder where all my files are and store them on my other hard drive, but I also have various versions of those files if they are large version1, version2 etc etc
