Football Manager 2010 EDITOR

73 posts in this topic

Right I hope that this time the Editor tool will be working.

because the 2009 editor had a problem which wasn't solved (or I couldn't find a solution). The problem with 2009 editor was that I couldn't load the modification I did. it was possible with 2008.

The reason why I use editor is to correct the data on african country and it's player. specially my country D.R. Congo and it's league as well as the national team players. I understand that SI don't have access to all info about it which is understandable.

So I have 2 question will editor 2010 work ths time?

and in case i missed a thread in the forum did anyone find out how to load& play the data made in the editor 2009?

The editor worked in 09 as well.

The option to load the data appeared when you started a new game.

Worked fine for me. I've heard about this problem though. I'm sure there was a fix for it, have a search on the forums because there are quite a few people with that problem. It's End User stuff though, not SI or the Game.

I have the same problem. When i load a new game it doesn't give me the option to select different database. It just loads database without an option.

Anyone have an idea why this might be?

Are you saving the edited db as a different name, or are you saving over the original db? You need to save it separately.

Check where the computer is saving your database edit to, it might be something as simple as moving it to a different folder. For Vista the folder path should be C(or name of hard-drive you're using):\Users\<user name>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\db

When you click 'new game' a pop up box should appear. In the bottom right had corner of that pop up there shoud be a box marked 'change'. Select this and, when you continue, a page should appear with all your database add ons. Just select the ones you want to be included in the game.

I can find the editor no problem, however, once I click on the editor icon it comes up with this screen:

editor.th.jpg

I did completely remove the game then re-install it, but it has not rectified the issue. Just wondering if this has happend to anyone else and what to do to solve the problem.

Cheers.

Try running the editor in windowed mode, as this is the screen you're meant to get on the editor. It just looks like you haven't got the drop down buttons at the top.

I have gone into the Editor and made some changes and Saved As to the default folder which is named editor data.

I have reloaded up Fm2010 and clicked New Game and got the option to choose which database to use. There is only 1 to choose which is the default one. Underneath it says Editor Data Files........ 1 Enabled (1 in total). There is a box you can tick named Change but it dont do anything.

I looked at my save and its just a single xml file. I checked fm2009 db folder and it contains many .dat files too. Is this an error for the Editor which needs fixing ? Or have i done something wrong along the way?

No theres nothing wrong mrdeano just the way fm2010 is formatted in files. Mine does this also fm2010 doesnt allow u to create databases, just editor files. Which as seen from above, is easier because then u dont overwrite the real database. When updates cum such as steam automatic updates for fm2010 it will work :)

Checking the 'change' button does do something. When you check it and continue you should be taken to a screen where all your database add ons are shown. Just tick the ones you want to be included in the game.

Sorry for high jacking this thread,but it is about the editor.

Whenever I edit something with the editor and then save it after I exit it gives me a prompt saying that the editor has a problem and needs to close. Also it doesn't save what I have edited either. Is there any way I can sort this problem out?

Thanks.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Not sure about this, but why don't you check out the FM10 Editor FAQ:

Thank you for the reply,and the link. I'll have a read through it and see if I can there is any info about it.

Edit: I now know why the editor was having problems. I was saving the file in the wrong place.:rolleyes: Anyway I have another problem,when I go into FM10 and select new game I don't get any pop up's asking if I want to use the edited file.

I have read in the editors hideout that clearing my cache files might help this,so I'll have a go at that and see how it goes.

When I first did the edit I thought you had to put it into the preference part as that has a change clicky on the bottom right of the page,you can click on where the saved files are but you can't get to your saved one. (I had a bit of a blonde moment.):rolleyes::D

I also have the problem where the database screen does not pop up after clicking on New Game from the main page, and thus far I have not seen any suggestion as to the fix for that.

From what I can tell, this is preventing me from loading my editor data to be used with new games. If there is another way to load the editor data that does not need this pop up database screen, then by all means make it known. Not being able to add my editor data partially ruins this game for me, and makes me want to return it and stick with an older version.

chrishills, if you installed the game using Steam, the default location of the editor on a PC is at the following: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\tools\editor

Neil, I've been researching this and it looks like I may have stumbled across a fix for the problem I'm having at http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=159021

I suspect that I corrupted my config.xml file, and this may be preventing the initial database window from popping up when I start a new game. I'm going to follow the instructions on the above link. If it doesn't work, I'll try an uninstall, then follow those steps, and then a reinstall. I'm hopeful that this is going to work, because I've seen people say they followed these instructions and they still don't get the database window to pop up.

Bit late for this, but as I don't know whether you got the problem fixed I guess better late than never.

If the pop up box isn't appearing then delete your config file.

Followed the instructions of the link with the solutions to the problem and i still cant select to use my edited data.

When I go to start a new game nothing pops up on the bottome right hand side about selecting database.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Don't even want to play the game until i can get the proper players at my team

It is a bit of a nightmare to access the editor. I loaded via Steam last week and the editor worked fine a few days ago but now whenever I go to open it a white screen comes up with green at the top and "must respond" in the right hand corner.

Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone have a solution, thanks.

I'm having the same problem as qos_75. I am currently running Windows 7 (64-bit). I've tried running it in windowed mode, but it doesn't help. I've run the 10.1 patch version and it works fine, it's just the 10.2 patch version that seems to be a problem. Anyone know any fixes to the problem? (btw I've tried reinstalling the 10.2 patch and it doesn't help)

I'd recommend people having issues with the editor read the FAQ thread in the Editor's Hideaway, and if they're still having bother then to post there - your far more likely to run into one of the editing gurus who will most likely be able to help in there than in here.

Hi everyone,

I found the editor, loaded the default database, edited what I wanted to edit and saved the file as 'config 1' (leaving the original 'config' file untouched).

Thereafter I started FM2010 and the start screen, clicked on 'new game' and duly checked 'change' at the bottom to access the edited database files. But as soon as the game started loading, it was abruptly ended with an application error message that says "a serious error was encountered and the application must be closed. An error file has been created in <game directory>. The error message as it turns out is a crash dump file.

Did I miss something? What was it that I did wrong?

I noticed when you click on 'file' on the menu bar, there is an option to 'merge editor data (database changes only). Do I need to click on that?

It is highly frustrating to create the changes only for a fatal error to surface.

A big thank you in advance for your helo.

Delete the config file and the pop up box that should appear when you click 'new game' should start appearing again. :thup:
